Quote Of the Day

"You can do everything for other countries, but you can't do nothing for your own people," he added. "You can go overseas with the military, but you can't get them down here."

I think Katrina will do what Al and John couldn't

We work like a horse.
We eat like a pig.
We like to play chicken.
You can get someone's goat.
We can be as slippery as a snake.
We get dog tired.
We can be as quiet as a mouse.
We can be as quick as a cat.
Some of us are as strong as an ox.
People try to buffalo others.
Some are as ugly as a toad.
We can be as gentle as a lamb.
Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
Some of us drink like a fish.
We can be as proud as a peacock.
A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
You can get a frog in your throat.
We can be a lone wolf.
But I'm having a whale of a time!

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.
As soon as we acknowledge
this Supreme Designer/Architect,
Who has erected the beauteous
fabric of the universe, our minds
must necessarily be ravished with
wonder at this infinate goodness,
wisdom and power.


Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.


Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
Dr. Howdy

P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
by comparison."

With all due respect, what the hell was that?

I have an uncle who lives in Gulfport, Ms. Remember the state who took the blunt of the whole storm. Yet, there was not a lot of lawlessness done there. Why is the media so interested in New Orleans? The media has tried to blame the Bush Administrations for Katrina. It was the President Bush who gave that plea before Katrina came to town. My uncle who has lost a lot done something people who are preventing relief and causing so much lawlessness-my uncle is feding his neighbors and housing them, even though his house is bearly livable. A friend of mine from this state, Alabama left out last night and is bringing to truck loads of food to help fed those who lost so much. The Governor of the state is responsible for her state. The Media wants to bash Bush and that is an everyday thing. We should all have a singliness of purpose and that is to save and fed and sheltor as many people as possible instead of fingerpointing politics.
We need to quit depending on Uncle Sam for everything and take responsibilities for our own lives. We need to do all we can to be civil and respectful and help our neighbors. Live by the golden rule and the Ten Commandments and love your neighbors as yourself.
