Can't We All Just Get Along ??

As my ancestors put it, " It is time for revival". In the run-up to the election all of us have been whip-sawed by the sheer volume of useless information that passes for dialogue. Our town hall debates that are to suffice for national discussion have become little more than egocentric jousting matches scored by superficial appearances of performance. Sometimes a person craves just meat and potatoes. If you are one of those, you must have noticed that it is not on the menu of either party and what you are being fed is a steady diet of cotton candy and cow dung. I would suggest for all of you Tea Partiers, Independents, Social Liberal that are fiscally conservative, Conservatives, and all other groups that are dissatisfied with our current polarized state of politics contemplate the possibility of forming a true third party with the proper organization and funding to effectuate a change in the national discussion. Crazy? Time will tell, but in the interest of your posterity, you personally should be concerned about our current state of affairs.
For those of you that believe governmental actions matter little, know that the escalating prices you are paying for many items have a direct correlation to monetary policy that is being implemented to devalue our currency and cause inflationary curcumstances in the interest of paying off old national  debt with dollars that are worth incrementally less but there are artificiallly more of. Too bad you can't just inflate your paycheck. Anyway, jump into the discussion and we will see where this goes.

Has it been a year???

Almost. It has been almost a year since I have posted to this blog and quite interesting to read some of the past comments and posts to get a historical perspective of our shared and opposing opinions vis-a-vis transpired events. Maybe it is time to share observations and have input from all people that wish to comment.
 I find it interesting that there will be a meeting in Woodworth to discuss the future of our parish as whole, a move that may grow to a movement for the benefit of all of our citizens. Yes Virginia, Alexandria is not the center of the universe.

Whether you are stirring the pot, the paint, a conversation, or just going stir crazy - throw in your two cents. We might not give you anything for two-cents or you may consider it therapy at which time we will accept any payment you deem worthy made directly to your favorite charity. Suggestions are welcome. Make up a name to preserve your identity if you wish and join the gang. All are welcome - as long as you mind your manners.

This is the first post on this blog and is updated for the sake of moving it current as a benchmark. Sometimes, I find it interesting to review old posts for accuracy and to see what changed since the post.

What Say You?

I have not had much to say for some time now as I thought it would be wise to observe and reconcile my thoughts to current events.

So much is transpiring around us on all political levels that I am unsure whether we are seeing a reflection of our countrymen true desires to be taken care of or everyone is so busy that they do not have the time to be aware of events that affect their lives as well as being overwhelmed by the daily grind to survive and our federal government is using this time to become larger and more overarching in our daily lives. Time will tell.

I suppose the more pointed question will be, "what will time tell?"

To what extent will citizens allow businesses they have cultivated for generations to be snuffed from existance by the very government that is to respond to protect them?

And why is this happening?

Is it due to incompetence of government officials - afterall, many of the independant Chrysler Dealerships were not bankrupt - but their future was decreed. Or is there a larger hand and agenda that is moving through our land and we stand unwilling to challenge such destruction?

You tell me.

OK, What part of N-O do you guys not understand?? (click here for related article)

The resolution effort to pay Jock Scott and Toni Martin appear to be faulty on two counts.

1. Paying them is in direct violation of the injunction issued by Judge Randow.

2. Issuing direction to a city employee is in direct violation of the city charter and grounds for removal from office.

Doe anyone see the need to wait until election time to throw the bums out??

What Rocks Your World?

With local and world events occuring at the pace we are currently witnessing, how do you cope? Are you experiencing anger? Confusion? Do You want to make someone pay? Or do you keep your "nose to the grindstone" blocking out all but affects you personally? How do you cope? Do you walk with Jesus? Is yoga your technique? How about Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll? What works for you?

Jena 6 Fanfare Just a Flare Up

(Click "PEACE" for video)

Think about it people, talking about racism is kind of like answering your wife's question as to whether she is fat. She knows she is, you know she is, other people can see she is, but there is not an answer that is safe for you to give because you are a liar with one and a __________ (you fill in the blank) with the other. Beside that, you may not make the cover of GQ either.

The same applies to cow manure, if you don't stir it, it doesn't stink - kind of like racism.

After all of the media attention and motivated protesters, the outcome for the defendants and the victim in our justice system will be more or less the same because we operate under established juris prudence and lady justice has proven to be color-blind for the most part.
So when the sun comes up tomorrow, just remember that while your neighbors skin color may not be what you think it ought to be, kind words and gentle actions may do more to make the day peaceful and help all of us live past this argument than trifling with something that is not going to change anyway.

Are Saggy Drawers and Lawyers Blues Our Emerging Reputation?

I have always found it amusing that a person can be a pillar in the community - looked to with respect by everyone - and in an instant, their reputation can change when associated with and unsavory event. Senator David Vitter is an example.

So it is with towns, cities, states, and countries. No matter what good has happened for their established history, unsavory events attach notoriety to every citizen from a city that has been branded as "special".

I am beginning to think that our water supply or proximity to the state mental institution has something to do with the lunacy exhibited by our elected officials. Just as the 30-year stench of Mayor Snyder's dead catfish pond are dissipating, we get a dose of bad lawyering and saggy drawers.

I don't know about the rest of you, but if I am going to be continually involved in a comedy production, I want to get paid.

Where's my check?

This Page Intentionally Left Blank

With all of the happenings in Alexandria, it should not remain blank long.

Any one interested in forming a citizens group?
