Sob, Sob, I can't find a job

Ok, I have several forum boards and groups that I hang out in on a daily basis. I know the economy has gone to crap lately. But, 2 people with college educations, can't find jobs. One is a loan officer and one is a mortgage broker. I didn't know there was much diff.

Have you thought about changing your chosen profession? Surely what you're doing isn't the only thing you can do. Have you thought about lowering your standards? You might have to, God forbid, resort to manual labor. Nursing homes and hospitals always need help. Quick trips always need help. You might have to wait tables or tend bar. Maybe shovel a little shit.

When I needed or wanted a job, it has never taken me more than a week to find one. Granted they haven't always been glamorous, but they paid the bills.

You might have to do some shit you don't wanna do, you might have to give up the suit, tie, heels and hose, but at least you'll have heat, lights and food.

I get so sick of the fucking whining and pissing and moaning. I remember winters when my husband and I were so poor, we couldn't afford to get the gas turned on, so we had a kerosene heater and both kids, the dog, hubby and me all slept in the water bed together so we could stay warm at night. There were winters when the only heat we had was the wood stove. Thank god for electric hot water heater.

It's been a long time since those times. We did other things to get by too. Not wanting to be on welfare, deer were hunted in season and out. We ate the evidence. Family helped out too. Gramma bought us a dented freezer and gave us some meat.

Funny, but looking back, even though we were so broke we couldn't pay attention, they were happy times. They were happy because we pulled together and made the best of what we had. Friends were special, and if one of us got a break in the way of extra meat or fish or whatever, we shared it with our friends. We spent Friday nights, sharing what we had for supper and watching old movies together. Every other week on payday, we'd spring for a 12 pack of beer and play cards. Talk about a treat.

Those were the good ole days.

Glad I'm not there now, sorta.

Rosie

For the most part, I like my job. Most days, work at the veterinary hospital isn't work, but some days shit happens.

Most days we get everyone well and send them home. we have the occasional euthanasia, sad.

Then we have days like today. We have a client with an older rottwieler. Yesterday Dr. Cook prescribed some arthritis medicine. They called this morning to tell us Rosie died in the night. Rosie had been, as far as we knew healthy, other than normal symptoms for a dog of her breed and age.

Doc wasn't in yet and I'm the one who answered the phone. I made our apologies about Rosie, she was sweetheart. Her owners, who moved here from a large urban area, then asked me if we would cremate her for them. We don't have the facilities, so I gave them referral to a Veterinary hospital 40 miles away. SOP! Then she asked me what other people do. I told her if folks live on the farm or have friends who do , they bury their pets their. Then she wants to know what our hospital does. So I told her, we take them to the landfill. Not fun, but life isn't always fun.

Anyway, this is where this story starts to get tricky. There is another veterinary hospital in town, that does animal cremation. However, he was asked by the city to stop. You see, he does cremation out back in a 55 gallon metal barrel. Throws your pet in, covers it in diesel fuel and lights it on fire and stirs it with a shovel. He is not in the city limits so they have no jurisdiction and the county really doesn't care.

I have no clue where he comes up with the ashes you get back?!

To get on with it, one of the owners shows up later at our veterinary hospital very upset. I didn't tell her about the local crematory, I told her to take her dog to the landfill, I didn't offer for us to come and help her load her 80 pound dog and she hurt her back, after all her and her girlfriend/significant other both have bad backs and are new in town, (after 2 years), and Holly doesn't have a job and they need all the help they can get, and I'm an unsympathetic slob!

I am very sorry about Rosie, I've lost dogs and I understand how they feel, but they didn't ask for us to come and help load the dog, we don't refer cremation to the other vet because of his method, and we were told by the code officer, that he'd been asked to stop, and as far as the landfill, she asked me what we did, not what to do.

All the while we have another client standing there, the vet tech and the Doc, knew about Rosie, I told them, and I told them that I had referred to Animal Trails for the cremation. We were all dumb founded when she walked in.

Unfortunately, we will have these days now and then. I guess you have to forgive the pet owner. They are hurting and I understand. I just wish there was someone there for us to help us out, so we could better help the pet owner and us. We try very hard, and these deals are hard for us too.

Black is Back!!!





Tuesday, 11/11/08! The Blackshirts are officially back!
Coach Bo Pelini hung 11 blackshirts in the locker of Husker defensive players!

The beginning of a new era in Husker football and tradition.

The day was somewhat marred by the suspension of starting linebacker Cody Glenn.

Christmas gifts for Rednecks

Hey, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Get your redneck, polish, hillbilly horseshoes game for you family. Great year round outdoor game for the whole family.

All the links are in the side bar. Original Washers makes great Redneck Horseshoes games.

Sarah Palin


The media and anonymous staffers from inside the McCain/Palin campaign have been whining the Sarah Palin is a Diva. And of course the big whoop about the $150,000 in clothes.

Duh! Campaign money most likely took care of the cost of the clothes. Throw in the fact that it's great advertising for the designer. There's some kind of deal there. Then, you know she did not get to keep the outfits.

There hasn't been this much fuss over attire of political candidates since Hillary Clinton made the pantsuit her election/political uniform.

There wasn't much said about the McCain or Obama wardrobe. Boxers or briefs guys? Fess up!

I designed the above t-shirt just for Sarah Palin, she can wear it proudly and tell the media and the anonymous folks to stick it where the sun don't shine.

I hear all the mud about how bad she did at interviews, went off the planned speeches, etc. Put yourself in her shoes. She went from someone most of us had never heard of to being in not only the national spotlight, but international spotlight as the VP running mate to John McCain.

All things considered, I think she did very well.

Rednecks and gun lovers unite

It's also been brought to my attention that Obama is not a gun lover. He is a gun control freak.

Remember, he said something sarcastic about folks "clinging to their guns and their bibles"

Asshole.

Gun lovers, hunters and rednecks, you'd better head out and buy all the guns you can now, because come January 20th, 2009, Obama is going to want your gun and probably your bible too.

Chocolate

For those of you not in favor of a "don't blame me I voted for beer" post election humor shirt, how about, "Don't blame me, I voted for chocolate".

Chocolate as in the smooth, creamy, decadent, melt in your mouth Hershey type.

So, anyway, now we're gonna have a Democratic president and a mostly Democratic congress or whatever. God help us all.

The Democrats are going to spend us into another great depression.

Then, we have people, like this dumb broad, evidently, she thinks that if she sends her bills to Barack Obama, he's gonna write the checks every month along with sending her a check for gas.

What really scares me is there are too many dipshits out there who believe what the dumb broad believes. That Obama is gonna make life great and wonderful, sunshine and roses, and no worries ever again. Just tell ole Barack what you need and the check's in the mail.

Don't blame me, I voted for beer.


Well folks, the presidential election did not go the way I wanted it too. So I figured I needed a good post election humor t-shirt to wear in the coming days.

This would be great for Republicans, who wanted McCain and Palin or for anyone else who had any part of the election go their way.

One thing that did go my way is that the good people voted to not retain Nebraska District Judge Kristine Ceceva.

I was a bit disappointed to see my friend Bernie Fehringer not get voted in.

And of course, I was running for County Commissioner on the Republican ticket, but I got ousted in the primaries. Bummer.

Morons

So, earlier today, I was reading an advice column referencing helpful house/yard/garage cleaning hint.

One lady wrote in, "my kids colored on the garage floor with permanent marker, how do I clean it up?"

Duh, don't clean it up, PARK THE CAR OVER IT! It's the fucking garage floor, who gives a shit if the kids colored on it?

Another lady wondered how to get the little furballs out of the velcro on her precious little doggies coat.

Duh, get a dog with some damn fur so it doesn't need a coat, or move to a warmer climate.

The ones that really get me are the ladies who write in about their wonderful boyfriend, all except for one thing, the SOB is married, it's been 2 years and he's still has not left his wife.

Hello DUMB ASS! He's not going to leave his wife for you, you're giving him what he wants anyway. Besides, why in the hell would you want him? He's a CHEATER! He's cheating on his wife with you, and cheating on you with his wife. Besides, IF you ever get to be his wife, won't you always wonder if he's cheating on you with someone else? Kick the guy in the nuts and get a life, or a dog, or a cat or a goldfish. Less money, hassle, stress and they are always glad to see you no matter what.

Judge Kristine Ceceva and Rithcie Thompson

Judge should go

Published: Thursday, October 23, 2008 2:49 PM CDT
An important issue will soon come before Panhandle voters, the retention
election of District Court Judge Kristine Cecava.


Although nearly everyone in the Panhandle will recall her nationally known
and infamous ruling of Richie Thompson, the pedophile who was ²too short for
prison,² there are other, lesser-known rulings that are equally appalling
and should be given grave consideration before finally casting a final
ballot.


In case CRO8-018, Judge Cecava ruled that a husband, who repeatedly struck
his wife in the head with a metal bucket, could not be charged as a
perpetrator of assault with a deadly weapon because a metal bucket cannot be
considered a deadly weapon even though it brought about injuries requiring
hospitalization of the victim.


In the case of CI08-125, a civil divorce action, Judge Cecava ruled that a
stay-at-home mother of two children trying to launch a career as a freelance
photographer was not be granted custody of her children because the judge
wanted her to ³grow up² and get a ³real job.²


In the case of CI08-153, an application for order of protection by a
college-aged woman who was repeated stalked and harassed by an ex-boyfriend,
was denied by Judge Cecava with the justification that it would ruin the
young man¹s future by ³creating a black mark on his record² should he ever
find himself in a custody matter. The young man was expelled from the
college he was attending when the administration validated a stalking
complaint made by the same victim.


And, returning to the case of Richie Thompson, who was given a sentence of
probation for the crime of sexual assault on a child, a young female store
clerk reported several incidents of his stalking her at her job wherein he
would follow her throughout the business and ask for her help to find items
such as personal lubricant. Judge Cecava refused to act on this information
when it was presented to her, suggesting this is acceptable behavior from a
registered sex offender. As a matter of fact, she told the reporting
official to stop ³freaking out² about it!


A newspaper recently printed the Nebraska State Bar¹s judicial approval
rating
at a lowly 57 percent for Judge Cecava. This is clearly an ³F² grade
from attorneys who stand before her and are regularly subjected to her
erratic and oft times dangerous rulings.


We must make a right decision on Election Day. Cast a ³NO² vote for Judge
Cecava on Nov. 4 for the safety of our community and the preservation of
justice!


Wilkie Collins


Citizens for Justice



Before I post any thoughts on the above letter to the editor, I will clarify, that I double checked and this editorial was in the Gering Courier.

I totally agree with this gentleman, that Judge Ceceva needs to go. I don't think she has nearly as much interest in judicial issues as she does in haunting the Salvation Army and the Catholic Ladies Rummage room looking for antiques and trinkets. Several of my friends in law enforcement aren't to fond of her either. She makes it very difficult for them to get drug convictions. She gives the criminal every break she can possibly get away with, while nitpicking our police officers to death.

There is one useless young lady in town, who was pulled over by the State Patrol, and they discovered meth and marijuana in her car. Along with that she had a 14 year old boy in the car. She ended up getting off with probation. WTF! She's about 24, no job, shacks up with a known drug user, does not have custody of either one of her kids. Was totally uncooperative with her lawyer and the court, and still she gets probation. She also flunked several of her probation required urine tests, and to date has not fulfilled any of the other requirements of her probation. Like getting a job, going to NA/AA and so on. She's been arrested for non payment of her child support as well. And is she in jail for probatin violation. OH NO! She had Judge Ceceva. The judge feels sorry for the poor thing. Give me a fucking break. The only thing that broad is good for, is a good example of what you don't want to be like.

Commenting on the letter, she doesn't think a metal bucket can be a deadly weapon. She ever drop one full of grain or water on her foot? Hurts like hell. Imagine swinging it at someone! They have sharp edges for God's sake.

What's wrong with wanting to be a freelance photographer?

And the whole stalking, harassment by the ex boyfriend, protection order. Guys like that are the ones who eventually will severely wound, maim and most likely kill their ex.

Now to Ritchie Thompson. That little twirp is a pervert and has been forever. Anyone in his age group who grew up around here will tell you that. He's had girlfriends in the past, almost all of them have had little girls, and none of them dated him very long. One packed up and actually left town she was so terrified. This isn't the first time he's molested, only the first time he got turned in and busted.

If some little freak was following me around the store repeatedly wanting help finding the KY jelly, I'd have a fit too! Isn't that some kind of violation of his probation? For God's sake, if you go into Walmart, the personal lubes are over by the toothpaste, hair doodads, lotions and such. Teens and little girls do visit those sections. Does he have to grab another little girl or assault the lone clerk in the quick trip before the "Judge" gets the freaking message?

In closing, we need to vote, to NOT retain Judge Ceceva as our District Court Judge. She should retire and spend her days shopping for antiques, trinkets and such and maybe walk her dogs, she might lose a little of that big ole fat ass she's got. Maybe she could hang out with Ritchie and help him locate the lube!

Update on the marjuana dog

The marjiauna dog lived! Totally amazing! That puppy was on deaths door when she came in. The fact that she lived has nothing to do with any treatment we did. The good Lord was looking down on Fluffy.

There is a part of me that is optomistic that Fluffy will serve a higher purpose.

I know she touched my heart.

Our local State Patrol is pushing this case hard and busting butt to make an animal cruelty charge. I know it seems odd that it should be that tough to make a case, but heck we're in Nebraska, home of the screwed up safe haven law. Along with one of the worst child welfare states in the nation. The safe haven law and it's screwed up mess should tell you that.

We, in the state of Nebraska, can't even get child welfare and safety right, let alone animal welfare.

The troopers are pushing for animal cruelty, because it carries a stiffer fine and tougher punishment than the possesion of marijuana charge. Go figure? I just hope they get it done.

Now, back to the "safe haven" issue.

OMG! What a fucking mess. Nebraska is one of the last states to come on board with a safe haven law. Shame on us. Then our fearless leaders in Lincoln, don't put an age limit on it so we have people dropping off kids of all ages. Then we have people from other states dropping of kids of all ages.

Crapola!

Then, we have folks writing letters to the editors in papers all over the state, whining about the safe haven law. We even made Fox News more than once, in 2 weeks!

Nebraska's safe haven law, was not properly written by our lawmakers. But, if you look back over the last several years and paid any attention to Nebraska news, you will note we have one of the worst states in the nation when it comes to child welfare. It's been investigated, audited, studied, had reccomendations, and we still suck.

The one thing I have learned from the Nebraska safe haven law fiasco is, Nebraska sucks at taking care of our children.

A lot of lettors to the editor took the tone, of these parents don't want their kids. But if you really followed it, that is not the case.

One mother, a single mom, has a good job, insurance benifits, not on welfare, pays her bills. She has 2 children and a cat. She has a son, that she invoked the safe haven law on and dropped off. It's not that she didn't want to keep him. But at 11 or 12 he was out of control. He was beating his sister, torturing the cat and destroying the house. Her insurance would only pay for 2 or 3 days of help in a mental facility. That was not enough. She went to all the state agencies, reached out to church and community organizations.

But, because this Mom is doing all the right things, her kid couldn't get the help he really needed. She dropped him off at a hospital and invoked the Nebraska safe haven law and gave up custody of her son, because she knew it was the only way he would get the help he needed. Not to mention she has to be concerned about her other child and the pet, whose well being and life she is responsible for.

She did NOT drop this child off because she didn't want him, she dropped him off because it was the only way he could get the help he needed!

She said as much in an interview with an Omaha World Herald reporter.

So, to the leaders of the great Cornhusker state.

When are we going to get some decent animal cruelty laws and when are YOU going to get your heads out of your asses and quit farting around with our child welfare laws, and audits, investigations, reccomendations, and MAKE the people in those jobs actually do their jobs.

In the private sector if I sucked as bad at my job as you do, I'd be unemployed!

Random Friday night budlight thoughts

So, folks TGIF!

The stock market is in the crapper, the whole world is looking at a recession, the election and American politics are in the toilet with the stock market, folks are losing there homes like crazy.

So, what do we have to be happy about?

Well, for one, it's Friday, thank God.

The little pissant amount of money I have in the stock market in my 401k is not enough to worry about.

I'm not worried about the national election, I'm following my local politics, wheel tax, and a shitty district judge we need to kick to the curb.

Good old District Judge Kristine Ceceva, who didn't think that Ritchie Thompson, the sex offender should go to the state pen, because he's only 5'2"! What a crock of shit. On top of that I know that Jen Cartwright, a Sidney, NE resident, who has been arrested and convicted for posession of meth, has flunked her pee test 3 times, and is still walking the streets!

If you are on probation and you flunk your pee test, shouldn't you go to jail for probation violation?

And her little sister, Jackie, was pulled over, with a man, not her husband, (her husband is in the army and was at his base station in Hawaii), that was arrested by the ATF, hauled off never to be heard from again. On top of that she had her and her husbands baby in the car, and she was let go. What the fuck is up with that!?

On the wheel tax issue. It is going to be on our local ballot to help raise money to fix the streets on the north side of town. I will give you this, those streets need fixed. But I have a problem with this whole thing. There are no businesses, only residential on the north side of Sidney, NE. Along with our illustrious low income housing "Cheyenne Villa". Which keeps our local City of Sidney Police Department busy 24/7 because no one has a job, they're living there for free, their neglected kids run amok while the Mom's and boyfriends, smoke pot, drink, deal dope and try to hide thier pit bulls from the management.

Now the city wants everyone in the COUNTY to help pay to fix the streets up there. I don't have a problem with the good residents, but this is a town of only 6000 pops. Let's clean up the shit and make it miserable for them, we need to make the north side of town a good place to live.

It's amazing, a nice house, any other place in Sidney, might be worth x amount of dollars, but if it is on the north side, it's worth x-, because it's on the north side. In a town of only 6000 pops, it does not speak well of our city government, local police, and sheriff's department.

Our local state patrol, and drug dog, are always ready and willing to help out anytime. They don't even want the glory for an arrest. That means sitting in the office doing paperwork. But our PD and SO have such a pissing contest going on that they won't share info with each other, let alone with the State Patrol.

But let something go wrong! Who do they call? The State guys! Send the SWAT Team,we can't handle it.

I would really like to know why all of our local law enforcement can't share and cooperate. It is all for the good of the community. The more cooperation, the less crime, the happier the tax paying citizens! Pretty simple if you ask me.

What it boils down to is, it's life, and no one gets out alive. So while you're here, most of the time, you need to put your own needs aside and do the RIGHT thing.

I work for a veterinarian, I know about doing the RIGHT thing, versus doing the money thing. Mostly we do the money thing, but some days, you gotta forget about the money and do the RIGHT thing, for the good of the animal who does not have a voice or a choice.

Almost forgot, good news. DH got raise, we have stable jobs, don't need no damn bail out!

Go McCain/Palin!

Thanks for listening.

The dog that ate the marijuana

Ok, some of you frequent here to see what's up at Redneck Revue, some of of you stumble across this blog, looking for redneck horseshoes.

I appreciate my regular readers and welcome any new ones. Now, I have a story for all of you!

If you don't know, I work for a veterinarian, most days, it's vaccinations, vomiting, declaws, spays, etc. pretty mundane stuff.

But, once in a while something that just blows your mind will walk in the door. It happened today.

Wednesday, is our Dr.s day off. So me and the vet tech use Wednesdays to catch up on filing, cleaning, inventory, etc.

We had a quiet day, until about 4pm. A lady from a nearby town walks in with a sick puppy. It's about 4 months old, very thin, rigid, and not very responsive.

Just a bit of background here. Bear with me while I set this up.

This lady is from a town 40 miles away and suddenly showed up a few weeks ago with one sick puppy, we fixed it up.

Then she shows up with 4 sick boxer puppies, thin, dirty, loaded with worms.

I have to give the lady credit, her heart is in the right place, but, her brain isn't.

Given we are a small, rural community, I ask around a bit, because things are just not right with this whole deal. Come to find out, her father was arrested a few years ago on animal cruelty charges. The man had sheep in his basement, cows that starved to death and numerous dogs and cats in the house that were seized, sick and most had to be euthanised. This was not discovered until he went to the hospital and the EMT's that picked him up turned him in.

Anyway, this lady is his daughter.

So she shows up this afternoon with another sick puppy. She had given this puppy to a man she had rented her fathers house to. The puppy had eaten part of a house plant and the renters stash of marijuana! The renter called the "lady" and said he was going to take the puppy and have it put down because it kept eating his "stuff". She went and got it and brought it to us.

I have seen a lot of things in my career at the veterinary hospital, but this takes the cake. I called the cops.

The "lady" is not at fault, just not all there.
Anyway for those of you who don't know, I have a son who is a state trooper, so I just called the local office, the seargent answered the phone, I told him what was up and he was over in a few minutes.

He questioned the "lady". She is not at fault in this mess, just ignorant and not very bright.

So, to make a long story short, we gave the puppy some medicine and all prayed it lives through the night. We will have to save pooty samples, or do a necropsy on the puppy for evidence for a animal cruelty case.

The state patrol, notified the city of Kimball, Ne. The local PD is going to go investigate. The state patrol is hoping we can prove the marjiauna was eaten by the puppy. If it can be proved the cruelty to animals charges will carry a bigger fine, sentence, etc. than the posession of marijuana charges. Not to mention the guy who had the puppy has a rap sheet a frickin mile long!

Then, we're going to have to find a place for the puppy if it lives, until this is all over.

I've already decided, if it lives, *crosses fingers* I'll keep it until this mess is sorted out and we can find it a good home.

God bless the rednecks, animal lovers and our local fuzz!

More Joe the plumber

All I can say to Joe the Plumber is this!

Go Joe Go!

Kick ass, You are the new American Icon! You are the blue collar, fast food, plumbing, tow truck driver, electrician, certified nurses aid, grocery bag boy, average feller.

Go Joe Go!

I love ya!

Joe the plumber



Who ya gonna call? Yeah, who ya gonna call when your shitter backs up? I'm betting it won't be Joe the plumber, or pretty much any plumber with 2 cents worth of ethics or principle. I will bet your Senator Obama, that if you needed a plumber tonight, you would not find one single plumber in the whole United States of America that would come to your house and unplug your toilet, fix your furnace, unplug your sink or what ever.

I know that if I lived in your community and I was a plumber and you called me because your toto was overfloating, I'd tell you to call somebody who gives a shit, because I don't.

As far as I'm concerned, after you disrespected Joe the Plumber and his honest question, if your plumbing is backing up, you can just damn well drown in it.

Senator Obama, you managed to disrespect, put down and shit on every hard working, blue collar, American in this country.

I work for a veterinarian, I'm the person who takes care of your dog, cat, bird, lizard, whatever when it is sick or injured or just needs to be boarded. I clean up the vomit, poop, blood, pee, and so on. I never complain. I like my job.

Senator Obama, you do not have a clue where you would be without all of us who do the dirty work. And as far as spreading the wealth! Kiss my ass! I worked for that money and I want it!

We have too many lazy, I figured out how to work the system, no good, I'll just get knocked up, or have a back injury, I just don't wanna get up, dumb shits in this country, and it needs to stop!

I work for my money, in a way, you will never understand, and I want to keep as much of it as I can!

AIG bailout

I give up! I just fucking give up, surrender, lay down on my back, with my arms and feet up like a dog!

We bailed out AIG, then $700 billion to overpaid, stupid fat cats.

I get up this morning and hear on the news, our government is giving AIG more money, and execs are going on another spa retreat.

I think I will call the bank and tell them they can have the damn house, I'm moving into a cave and putting my money under a rock, guarded by my pet rattlesnake!

Hubby and I both have jobs and aren't behind on our house payments, but this whole bailout thing is fucking nuts. And if Obama gets elected?????

Across the road from us is a nice set of south facing rocky bluffs. We can take the backhoe and dig a nice cave and move our furniture in. There are several old shelter belts nearby for wood for cooking and heat. We could charge the laptop and cell phones at work.

I've been depressed about all this shit anyway and after 26 years I'm tired of working. I could spend my days hunting and tending a garden and in the winter I could crochet and read books bought from the local salvation army.

So, to president Bush, VP Cheney, Senator McCain, Governor Palin, Senator Obama and VP candidate Joe Biden:

I, average American Jane 6 pack am waving the white flag of surrender. I give up. You and all the other blow hard, we're gonna help you, full of shit policiticans in Washington D.C. really do not give even a fart about me and all the other folks like me.

I am still proud to be an American, but I am not proud of what my leaders are doing. You people are killing us.

Jane 6 pack again

Jane 6 pack here again!

I am still pissed! I am from Nebraska. We actually had a guy in DC who did not vote for the bailout.

Good for him. Piss on the ones who did.

I have a lousy $6000 dollar note that is due at my bank in 10 days. It is a farm note. Due to prices and etc. I do not have the whole $6ooo. That is the only debt I have hanging over my head.

Then we have AIG who sends folks on a $400,ooo + spa weekend!? After they take the fucking bailout money, that I am going to have to pay for?

Kiss my hardworking "Jane 6 Pack" ass!

Jane 6 pack!



I am Jane 6 pack, married to, mother, sister, grandma, niece, girlfriend whatever, of Joe 6 pack.

I am Jane 6 pack and I'm not gonna take it anymore.

The 7 billion dollar bail out approved by our elected officials is the biggest bag of bullshit I have ever seen in my life. What a crock of shit. I live on 120 acres, and I don't have enough room to spread all the bullshit that the bailout is full of!

We need to bail out loan companies cuz they made loans to people who couldn't pay them back, so now we have a credit crisis, and folks can't borrow money. Give me a fucking break! The American public does NOT need to borrow any more money. We need to pay back what we owe!

Why didn't our politicians, the powers that be, that we elect, send us a check so we could pay off our debts!?

Seven hundred billion dollars! Give me a fucking break! How is that s upposed to trickle down to me Jane 6 pack, who is married to Joe 6 pack? We are the average American who makes about $45,000/year. I challenge any politician to live my lifestyle! You want my vote? You want me to take you seriously? Live like I do! You can't do it. Not only can you n ot live on my family's income, you couldn't stand the thought of doing your own laundry, walking your own dog, fixing your own breakfast, packing a lunch, cooking your own supper, paying your own bills, picking the beans in the garden. And on and on.

It won't! Sad to say, my husband, myself and our children and the grandchildren, we don't even have yet, don't have a prayer in hell of ever paying off this mess.

Like I said, I am Jane 6 pack and I am mad as hell and I am NOT going to take it anymore and I am going to be on the ass of every politician that pisses me off, and does not at least try to use some common sense!

I won't bomb you or shoot you or anything like that, but, I will blog you, I will email you, I will write letters to the editor, I will be on local radio, I will make t-shirts and sticker that express my opinion.

I will be on your ass every second of every day, and I will let your know how I feel!

Jane has spoken and will continue to do so until every single elected official gets their shit together and represents the people and not the special interest groups and the big money!

You don't understand where the big money really is! If Joe and Jane 6 pack start putting all of their money under the bed or in a can in the back yard, instead of in their 401k or their mortgage or what ever, all of you big time, over educated idiots, self sanctimoniuous assholes will be the freezing grasshopper in the ant and the grasshopper story and trust me, Jane and Joe 6 pack are going to let you freeze to death and good riddance!

Bite Me!

Joe Biden, You and Barack are nothing more than over educated and over paid career politicians and you can

BITE ME!

You do not have one fucking clue about the middle class and the touted $42,000/year salary.

Take out our health insurance, federal tax, state tax, 401k, medicare, medicade, social security, (which I will probably never get anything out of, thanks to a ton of yahoos who ahve figured out how to be disables, without being disabled) and whatever the hell else you think you need, and then you live on that!

And that doesn't even touch, local property tax, personal property tax, vehicle tax, tobacco tax, gas tax, local sales tax, alcohol tax, IFTA, (interstate fuel agreement tax, affects truckers who buy diesel fuel in multiple states), the personal property tax,( taxes the tractors and other farm equipment my family owns, that it uses to earn a living farming.)

Every single one of you assholes in Washington needs to get a fucking clue. You are taxing your middle class to death.

My husband and I NET about $30,000 a year after all our taxes, and we are having a hard time making it. We actually gross the $42k a year, but after we pay all our taxes, we are screwed.

$30k a year is $2500/mo. House payment, $726, then we have phone, car and property insurance, satellite tv, heat, electricity, gas, groceries and we're paying our farming expenses out of pocket, we have to meet our insurance deductible, tires, oil changes, and the list goes on, Joe 6 pack can barely afford the 6 pack anymore.

And I forgot to mention, Obama is not a gun, NRA friendly guy, so when the coyotes attack my dogs and chew the shit out of them in my front yard, what the hell am I supposed to do about that? If he takes my guns, is he gonna pay my vet bill?

Joe 6 pack

I know that I have friends that visit this blog on a regular basis and folks who find me when looking for redneck horseshoes. I love all of you! I blog about whatever makes me happy, mad, or whatever. And I use this as a ranting board, but hold onto your asses rednecks, because I am on a roll and I am major pissed off tonight.

I've been watching the vice presidential debate between Biden and Palin. I have never been so pissed off at every single politician as I am right now.

Governor Palin made a reference to Joe 6 pack and Hockey Moms. I am Jane 6 pack and the American Hockey mom, and married to Joe 6 pack. With the exception that I am a football Mom!

I was expecting to see a debate between Biden and Palin, mostly I see a bunch of crap back and forth, Obama did this, McCain did that, Obama didn't do this, McCain didn't do that, blah, blah, blah!

It's turned into a sandbox, he touched me, she touched me first big bunch of bullshit.

Then they talk about the average American middle class family who makes $42,000/year and how all of the economic, wall street, fanny, freddie crap is goint to affect all of us. God bless Sarah Palin, she is the only one who even has a clue. I dare everyone else in big government to live on those wages. They could not do it!

They blather about sending your kids to college, paying your morgtage, blah, blah, yada, yada!

My husband and I put 2 kids through college from 1998 to 2002. Yes it took that long, 4 1/2 years for a Bachelors degree for both and then, for one 6 months at State Patrol camp and another 2 years for the other in Radiology school. We couldn't afford all that, They had student loans, pell grants and JOBS! We helped out as much as we could, but our kids still graduated with debt. BUT, we did it!

And the whole support the troops stuff!? I have a friend in the military, Barack Obama is the reason that it took way to long to get Kevlar, reinforced Humvees, and a bunch of other simple stuff that would have saved the lives of a lot of American soldiers, BECAUSE HE DID NOT AGREE WITH BEING IN IRAQ! This came straight from the horses mouth of a soldier who was on the ground in Iraq!

They've talked about health care, foriegn policy, taxes, the war, the economic crisis, fanny, freddy, energy, education, gun control, blah, blah, yada, yada.

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth is there is not one single politician in Washington who has fucking clue about how the MIDDLE CLASS really lives, except Sarah Palin.

Every time our elected officials pass another law or bill or what ever, they get US, the voters off on a tangent, and they keep us on it so we don't notice all the PORK that they attach to it.

They don't pass one single anything that is not filled with one great big old waste of our tax dollars.

I am very dissapointed in every aspect of our government. Our government from my local county commissioners, (which I ran for, but lost, by only 40 votes) to our local city council, to my state reps, to the folks who represent me in DC.

They are all on a power trip and held hostage by special interest groups.

And Biden and his reference to Scranton! A lot of us would say where the hell is Sranton? Well folks to the best of my knowledge it's in Pennsylvania. And I'm from Nebraska! I know my US geography. Whoopee for me. Oh and, don't get me wrong, my sympathies to his family's loss. But where were any of them whem my father was killed in an accident when I was 17 and I had 2 little sisters that my Mom had to raise? And not on any amount of money that he makes?!

Anyway, this particular rant is over for now, I need to go to bed, cuz Joe and Jane 6 pack have to get up in the morning and go to work and make our measily $42,000/year salary. Mind you that is before taxes, social security, medicare, medicade, health insurance and 401k deductions. We take home about 72% of that $42,000.

On a final n ote, I am so glad that our consitution was written by genisues so that it could be run by idiots and ultimatley controlled by the will of the voters.

more bail out

Now I'm hearing the bail out could cost households around $2500 in taxes!

That is a whole months wages for my husband and I!

We cannot afford that!

What about the folks who are working for minimum wage? $2500/mo will break them. We're all gonna have to go back to having families living together, grandparents, kids, grandkids, and we'll all have to have 2 jobs just to get by.

The bail out

This is for Jeff Fortenberry, Adrian Smith, Lee Terry, Chuck Hagel, Ben Nelson, all of the other folks in congress the senate and president George Bush.

I am not in favor of this bailout bill you're trying to pass. It's like opening the hen house door and hollering for the fox! The dumb shits that created this mess are crooked as a dogs hind leg and will use this money to line their own pockets at the expense of the average American tax payer.

You need to take a look at this from my point of view. Most of the folks I know net about $2500/mo in take home pay. The cost of this bail out scares the shit out of me. I can't afford to pay anymore taxes.

Here is what I think you should do! Write every legal American citizen over the age of 18 a check for $100,000, tax free/exempt. Trust me we will spend it!

In just my family, my husband and I, both of my children and their wives, my mother and my in laws could pay off our mortgages and other debt with money left over to spend and invest. Also that would free up income that as a good American consumer we would spend.

This would funnel a bunch of money into Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac and take care of their problems, and loads of American citizens out of debt.

We would take our extra money, save some and spend some, there by stimulating the economy!

Voila! Problems solved for everyone! And best of all, it would no doubt be cheaper than the plan you are proposing!

Fema & Hurricane Ike

The following was posted by a friend of mine on forum board where I regularly hang out. It is straight from the horses mouth about the absolute cluster fuck that FEMA and it's disaster relief efforts are.

To thank my buddy for the fodder for this post his link is below, he has all kinds of great military shirts, stickers and other support our troops gear and gifts.

Linkin Mall





My older son called me tonight about his assignment assisting in Beaumont, Texas, after Hurricane Ike. It was different than he expected. He said, "It was a cluster fork – I'd rather spend 14 days on a fire."

At forest fires, there is a unified command drawn from the Forest Service, Park Service, Bureau of Indian Affairs, Bureau of Land Management, etc. The commands are already integrated into the dispatch system and the incident command system. My son's crew was sent as part of a larger wildland firefighting contingent. He was told his crew would use their chainsaws to assist in recovery efforts. They'd help local firefighters and power crews with access. However, the Texas state government had to approve what was being done, because the costs would come from their allocated disaster recovery funds.

He wound up in the parking lot of a convention center. FEMA rented the parking lot for $12 million. It was fenced. He was told to set up his tents on the pavement, so he circled his five trucks, and his crew spread sleeping bags on the pavement, encircled by their trucks. There was no group briefing. Somebody from FEMA said, "We'll tell you when we're ready for you."

In about two days, the Corps of Engineers, FEMA, and the Defense Logistics Agency (a component of the Department of Defense) had set up refrigerated tents with cots and catering. DLA normally handles logistics for wars. My son was then given his task. Basically, he "ran a truck rodeo" – his words. Hundreds of 18-wheelers came into the parking lot loaded with bottled water, MRE's, or ice. My son's crew checked their bills of lading, recorded their truck number and contents, and directed the truck drivers where to park. They segregated them by type of contents. My son received incoming orders from COE, FEMA, or DLA, telling him where they needed what supplies. He assembled convoys of the requisite number of trucks, but he said COE, FEMA, and DLA were not talking to each other and didn't recognize each other's paperwork, so each specified that they wanted only the trucks that they'd sent to his site. COE didn't want its locations receiving DLA trucks and vice versa. He said that he had 1000 trucks parked at any given time. At one point, there was a 30-mile backlog of incoming trucks on the Interstate. He said he saw 9 GS-15 Managers yelling and swearing at each other.

He said relief workers ate fried chicken and slept on cots in air-conditioned tents, while truck drivers were told to eat MRE's and bottled water and stay in the cabs of their trucks. The temperature was 110. He said he expected a revolt of 1000 truck drivers – something on the nature of a C. W. McCall song – but there were armed National Guardsmen ringing the tents.

My son told me that when his tour ended, the trucks full of ice were driven to an airport. They dumped the ice on a runway and let it melt, rather than incur the continued expense of delivering it to people who could use it.

Last night, his crew drove toward home in Colorado. My two daughters joined his crew at a Houston restaurant for a meal, but he couldn't get enough motel rooms for his crew, so they drove to Dallas before bedding down for the night. He said, "If you divide $12 million dollars by the number of nights we were there and the number of cots that were filled, it cost $2000 per cot per day to feed and house the rescue workers." He also said his crew was awarded a Certificate of Merit from FEMA.

In answer to my last question, he said, "No, we didn't hand out any duct tape." Kayecee must still have all the duct tape. I heard she buys rolls of duct tape by the thousands "so the hoarders don't get it."

Fun with telemarketers!

For lack of interest in doing anything else I went surfing for sarcastic stuff to say to telemarketers and found the following story. Enjoy!

Fun with telemarketers

What to say to a telemarketer! One of the things that has always bugged me (and I'm sure it has most of you, too) is to sit down to dinner only to be interrupted by a phone call from a telemarketer. I decided, on one such occasion, to try to be as irritating to them as they were to me. The call was from AT&T, and it went something like this:

Me: Hello

AT&T: Hello, this is AT&T....

Me: Is this AT&T?

AT&T: Yes, this is AT&T....

Me: This is AT&T?

AT&T: Yes. This is AT&T....

Me: Is this AT&T?

AT&T: YES! This is AT&T. May I speak to Mr. Salem please?

Me: May I ask who is calling?

AT&T: This is AT&T.

Me: OK, hold on.

At this point, I put the phone down for a solid 5 minutes thinking that, surely, this person would have hung up the phone. I ate my salad. Much to my surprise, when I picked up the receiver, she was still waiting.

Me: Hello?

AT&T: Is this Mr. Salem?

Me: May I ask who is calling please?

AT&T: Yes, this is AT&T....

Me: Is this AT&T?

AT&T: Yes, this is AT&T....

Me: This is AT&T?

AT&T: Yes, is this Mr. Salem?

Me: Yes, is this AT&T?

AT&T: Yes, sir.

Me: The phone company?

AT&T: Yes, sir.

Me: I thought you said this was AT&T.

AT&T: Yes, sir, we are a phone company.

Me: I already have a phone.

AT&T: We aren't selling phones today, Mr. Salem.

Me: Well, whatever it is, I'm really not interested, but thanks for calling.

When you are not interested in something, I don't think you can express yourself any plainer than by saying "I'm really not interested", but this lady was persistent.

AT&T: Mr. Salem, we would like to offer you 10 cents a minute, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Now, I am sure she meant she was offering a "rate" of 10 cents a minute, but she at no time used the word "rate". I could clearly see that it was time to whip out the trusty old calculator and do a little ciphering.

Me: Now, that's 10 cents a minute 24 hours a day? AT&T: (getting a little excited at this point by my interest) Yes, sir, that's right! 24 hours a day!

Me: 7 days a week?

AT&T: That's right.

Me: 365 days a year?

AT&T: Yes, sir.

Me: I am definitely interested in that! Wow!! That's amazing!! AT&T: We think so!

Me: That's quite a sum of money!

AT&T: Yes, sir, it's amazing how it adds up.

Me: OK, so will you send me checks weekly, monthly or just one big one at the end of the year for the full $52,560? If you send an annual heck, can I get a

cash advance?

AT&T: Excuse me?

Me: You know, the 10 cents a minute.

AT&T: What are you talking about?

Me: You said you'd give me 10 cents a minute, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. That comes to $144 per day, $1,008 per week and $52,560 per year. I'm just interested in knowing how you will be making payment.

AT&T: Oh no, sir, I didn't mean we'd be paying you. You pay us 10 cents a minute.

Me: Wait a minute here! Didn't you say you'd give me 10 cents a minute? Are you sure this is AT&T?

AT&T: Well, yes, this is AT&T, sir, but....

Me: But nothing! How do you figure that by saying that you'll give me 10 cents a minute that I'll give you 10 cents a minute? Is this some kind of suliminal telemarketing scheme? I've read about things like this in the Enquirer, you know. Don't use your alien brainwashing techniques on me.

AT&T: No, sir, we are offering 10 cents a minute for....

Me: THERE YOU GO AGAIN! Can I speak to a supervisor please?!? AT&T: Sir, I don't think that is necessary.

Me: Sure! You say that now! What happens later? AT&T: What?

Me: I insist on speaking to a supervisor! AT&T: Yes, Mr. Salem. Please hold.

So, now AT&T has me on hold, and my supper is getting cold. I begin to eat while I'm waiting for a supervisor. After a wait of a few minutes and while I have a mouth full of food.......

Supervisor: Mr. Salem?

Me: Yeth?

Supervisor: I understand you are not quite understanding our 10 cents a minute program.

Me: Id thish Ath Teeth & Teeth? (Is this AT&T)

Supervisor: Yes, sir, it sure is.

I had to swallow before I choked on my food. It was all I could do to suppress my laughter, and I had to be careful not to produce a snort.

Me: No, actually I was just waiting for someone to get back to me so that I could sign up for the plan.

Supervisor: OK, no problem, I'll transfer you back to the person who was helping you.

Me: Thank you.

I was on hold once again and managed a few more mouthfuls. I needed to end this conversation. Suddenly, there was an aggravated but polite voice at the other end of the phone.

AT&T: Hello, Mr. Salem. I understand that you are interested in signing up for our plan?

Me: Do you have that friends and family thing because you can never have enough friends and I'm an only child and I'd really like to have a little brother.........

AT&T: (click)

Note From Me: When I get a call from a telemarketer I prefer to give them options. I simply tell them Steve is not here right now but would they prefer to speak to Slob Boy, Gutter Boy, BrainDead Man ..... Click............

Or My Other Favorite... Are you single? Click............

Tuesday night

It's Tuesday night.

The hubby has gone to town to play league pool and I am at home with a 6 pack, the remote and the internet. Woo Hoo.

I'll start with shit that pisses me off. The USPS. I am expecting 2 checks, that total a bit over $3000 in the mail and all of a sudden, I'm not getting any mail. Haven't had a scrap of mail for 5 days! No bills, no junk mail, no nothing! WTF!

The people who I'm expecting the checks from have mailed them. I checked. The USPS is full of shit. Used to deal with them when I worked at the local paper. The USPS is one of the few businesses/govt agencies that you will deal with where you pay up front for services you don't always get.

In the newspaper business, the paper pays all postage on mailed paper subscription before the paper gets mailed. However the paper and magazines all go 3rd class. This means 1st class, priority, air mail and whatever else goes first. So 3rd class gets sorted and sent last. Guess what!? If PO is to busy or short handed they don't effing bother.

Somewhere? There is a warehouse full of newspapers, magazines, packages, etc. that have had th postage paid and never been delivered. I wonder what the USPS does with that stuff? Do they have a big ole secret summer wienie roast and use that stuff for the fire? In the 4 years I worked at the paper there were 4 people in CO with a sub that only got 2 to 3 papers a week out of 5. That is a lot of paper, especially if you multiply it by, oh, say 100 who never got stuff from where ever. Then think about the whole country! OMG! The USPS can furnish the fire, the rest of us could all bring a pkg of hot dogs, a 6 pack and a sack of chips and we could have a Redneck bbq that would put Woodstock, Sturgis and the democratic and republican convention to shame.

In case you haven't figured it out, I am pissed at the postal service! For a change, I am expecting money in the mail, do you think it has showed up? NO! If it was a bill it would get to my box before it was mailed!

On a good note, I havn't got any junk mail either. I wish I could figure out how to quit getting that crap. What a waste of trees.

On another note. My blog is popular and I got spanked the other day by my oldest sons employer! He is a state patrolman and a member of SWAT. I can't say which state cuz that's what got me in trouble. Seems they have google alerts, and when I mentioned a certain thing, they got pinged and I got my little typing fingers spanked. Not bad, it was really kind of funny in the end.

It was one of those things that was good and bad at the same time. Hope the powers that be come back and visit now and then.

Well, folks, I better check out and let the dogs in and head to bed.

Gotta spend an evening cleaning and get my stuff ready to go to Lincoln on Sat for the Husker Virginia Tech game! Woo Hoo!

For all those great Husker fans who are expecting a new Husker in the family, I have some Husker maternity shirts. Maternity shirts with Cornhusker designs are hard to find. I'm working on more, so stay tuned.

The redneck shirts are the more popular ones in my store. Hold my beer and watch this is a great redneck t-shirt and way to true.

Redneck Horse shoes rules

www.cafepress.com/missingnebraska/1162282

I see a few folks have been looking for the rules to Redneck, hillbilly, Polish horseshoes, so straight from the horses mouth from the makers of the game, Original washers, I bring you the rules.



There is a link in the sidebar where you can buy your very own Texas, Polish, Redneck, or Hillbilly Horseshoes game.

Official Rules for Texas Horseshoes
(also known as Polish, Redneck, or Hillbilly Horsehoes)

Game Setup

  1. The two washer boards should be placed on a flat surface 10 feet apart from the front of the board. The included distance rope is exactly 10 feet long for easy distance measuring.
  2. The preferred surface to play on is short grass or carpet.
  3. During one-on-one competition, the first player will toss at a selected board while the second person follows from the same spot. After tallying scores, players will then pick up the washers thrown and throw to the other board. During two-on-two competitions, teammates will stay at the opposite board.

Player Positioning

  1. Washers is a team game, each team will have a player situated at opposing washer game board unless the game is one-on-one, in which please see Section 3 under “Setup.”
  2. Each player must throw their respective washers with both feet on the washer board. The foul line is the front of the board.

Scoring

  1. The closest hole is worth one (1) point, the middle hole is worth three (3) points, and the furthest hole is worth five (5) points. Washers must drop into the hole completely to score. A thrown washer from either player can knock washers on the board in a hole. It is important to remember whose washers are on the board in case of a knock-in throw. The owner of the knocked-in washer receives the applicable score for the hole into which it was knocked.
  2. Each player has a turn to throw three washers in each round. During one-on-one games, players will tally the score from that round and proceed to throw back at the other board. During two-on-two games, after a round is thrown and score is tallied, washers are then picked up and thrown by the other set of opponents.


Canceling Points

  1. After a player has thrown three washers for their turn, the other player has the opportunity to cancel out the opponent's score.
  2. For example, if Player A throws a washer in the first hole for 1 point, the middle hole for 3 points, and then misses the third shot, the score would be 4 points for Player A. However, the opposition, Player B, has a chance to cancel points from Player A's total during this round. If Player B throws a washer in the first hole for 1 point and the last hole for 5 points, and then misses the third shot, the score of the first round would be 5 to 3 in favor of Player B because the washers that landed in the first hole for one point cancelled each other out.
  3. The cancel rule is counted only for turns in the same round. Both players must throw all their washers for a complete round.

Player Turns

  1. The player or team to score last (no matter if the throw is cancelled or not) throws first in the next round.
  2. A round consists of a player making three washer throws in a row as one turn, and then an opposing player making three washer throws in a row as the second turn. Thus, a round consists of two turns.

Skunk Rule

  1. The skunk rule is in effect unless otherwise agreed upon by both teams before a game begins.
  2. If a team outscores another team 11+to 0, then the team with zero is SKUNKED (they lose). The team that outscores the other team 11+ to 0, wins the game.

Winning

  1. The first player or team to reach exactly twenty-one (21) points wins the game.
  2. NOTE -- the round has to be complete and a player or team must reach exactly 21 points to win the game. Breaking the 21-point level creates a penalty situation (see section “Breaking 21 – Penalty”).

Breaking 21 - Penalty

  1. Exceeding the winning point total of 21 results in a reduction of your starting score by the total number of points you made to break 21.
  2. For example, if Player A has 18 points and throws a washer in the last hole for 5 points, then misses two shots, they or their team will go back to 13 points because the total number of points thrown during that turn exceeded 21 points and the points scored (5) is subtracted from the starting score (18) for that round.
  3. During each round, if opponents make a washer in the same hole, it's just as if that washer was never thrown for both players. Scores are tallied at the end of each player's turn, and then adjusted for cancels at the end of the opponents turn. For example, if both players threw a five in the previous example, the score for Player A or his team would remain at 18 points.
These rules can be adjusted with any variation that you wish, but must be agreed on before a game begins

Officials: Dad finds naked boy in daughter's room, hits him with pipe


A Deltona father ended up in jail Thursday after finding his daughter's teenage boyfriend naked in the girl's bedroom and hitting him with a pipe, sheriff's officials said.

Raul Colon, 45, didn't even know his daughter had a boyfriend -- or that the youngster had been sneaking into the home for more than a year. So when he heard noises coming from his daughter's room early Thursday and saw a naked stranger standing on the girl's bed, he swung a metal pipe he had taken from the garage, hitting the 15-year-old, according to a Volusia County sheriff's report.

Colon was charged with aggravated battery on a child but was released from jail later Thursday on $10,000 bail, a booking officer said. No one answered the phone at Colon's residence Thursday for comment.

According to the report, Colon heard the noise in his daughter's room when he got up at 4 a.m. to let his dog out, as he does every morning.

Colon told deputies he chased Lucas Contreres through the kitchen, living room and through the front door and out into the street and called 9-1-1.

Colon's daughter later told deputies she had been seeing Contreres for 18 months but did not tell her father about the relationship. Contreres had sneaked in through a bedroom window at 3 a.m. Thursday to have sex with her, the 15-year-old girl told deputies.

Contreres was found at Florida Hospital Fish Memorial in Orange City where he received staples to close cuts on his head. His injuries were not life-threatening, deputies said.

Contreres told deputies a similar account to Colon's. He said Colon came into the room and started swinging at him with the metal pipe. He jumped out of the bed and began running through the home to get away from Colon. Once outside, he jumped on his bike and went home. His sister later took him to the hospital, deputies said.

Although Contreres' father said he wasn't sure whether he wanted to press charges, deputies took Colon to jail anyway.


Ok, there is no fucking way in hell the dad should have gone to jail. He had a male person he did not know in his daughters bedroom.

He's lucky I don't have any girls and that he wasn't in my daughters bedroom, I'd have filled his ass with buckshot.

I do wonder though why the Dad hadn't noticed before???

That is still beside the point. Local law enforcement is whining cuz he smacked a kid only 15.

Hello! For all the dad knew he could have been a crack head or on PCP! Being 15 DOES not exempt you from the law.

And while we're at it, I'll spank the daughter and the Dad too! She should not have had her BF in the house, and why does'nt Dad know? And where the hell is MOM? Drunk, loaded, high? And where the hell is the damn dog? The dog has'nt raised a fit all this time dingle ass is sneaking in? Piss poor dog in my opinion.


On another note, we had a truck stolen some years ago by"minors", as an adult, even though we were the "victims" we could not go to court because if the perp is "under age" court proceedings are closed.

That is the biggest crock of shit! They should make those proceedings public. Kids get away with way to much crap these days.

In fact, I am in favor of public whippings every Friday afternoon on the court house lawn. If you are a minor and you did something dumb, we're going to give you a good old fashioned, behind the outhouse whupping, and then we're going to whup your folks for not keeping track of your stupid ass.

The rest of us will be allowed to sit on the sidewalk in front of Stewies bar in Sidney, NE and drink beer and watch!

If anyone from the NSP is watching, have a good and safe week.

Pull up your pants

So, I was watching the news this morning and some dumb ass in Florida had committed a robbery and tried to escape in his car. Well, the traffic was bad and that wasn't working, so in order to evade arrest, he ditched the car and started running through traffic.

There was just on little problem, he's one of those dumb asses that adores the droopy drawers look. You know, where if you didn't have on your boxer shorts you'd get arrested for indecent exposure.

So the sky cam helicopter is following this chase on TV and you can see this dumb ass running around in traffic, only thing is my Grandma could run faster than that, cuz she pulls up her pants.

Finally he stops his little morning jog and appears he's giving up, but just in case and since he's a big ole guy, the cops tase him. Way to go. It was hilarious, rolling around in the middle of the street with his boxers hanging out. Dumb ass!

SWAT

In late breaking news law enforcement has just been dispatched to Gurley, NE.

There was a domestic disturbance earlier and now the male has barricaded himself in the house and it is not known at this time if there area any hostages.

The elementary school is in lock down.

Not a whole lot of this kind of thing goes on out here in the sticks, so it's exciting when it does, but at the same time, for me it's scary.

Over the last couple of years the score on these situations here is SWAT 4, Bad guys 0.

I just hope we never have to see the score tip in the favor of the bad guys.

Palin vs. Obama

Woo Wee! I do believe ole Obama done stuck his foot in his mouth with the pig remark last night.

Some news reporters tried to pass it off as just a saying, it's just rhetoric, he didn't call Sarah Palin a pig outright.

Well, that may be, but it sure sounded like Mr. Obama called Sarah Palin a pig. What an ass! The symbol of the Democratic party sure fits Obama to a tee.

I know the politicians are going to take jabs at one another, but that was just out and out rude and uncalled for.

Any thoughts I had good about Obama have gone out the window. As my Grandma would say, "When you lay down with the dog, you get up with the fleas."

And then we get to the other "Big O" in America, Oprah! Oprah doesn't want her show to be political so she won't have Sarah Palin on until after the election. But she had Obama on and she endorses him. What a dip shit woman. She already made her show political when she had Obama on and said she supported him.

I have 2 words to describe Oprah and Obama.

DUMB ASS!

Sexism, alive and well in America

Well, with the announcement of Sarah Palin as John McCain's choice for VP in the election the left wing liberal looney's have proved that sexism is alive and well in America.

I'm watching the sun rise through my patio door and can't help but hope that McCain and Palin get elected and become very successful. Maybe that way a new day will dawn in our country, where sexism will wane with the setting sun.

This whole line of bullshit about how cans he be a Mom and the VP is exactly a big ole line of bullshit.

Sarah Palin is married, that means she has a husband and they are a team. On this team,"Dad" will step up to the plate and be a parent. This "Dad" will do the things a lot of Dads don't or won't, he will be an involved parent, he will be half of the team, he won't wander through life doing shit he thinks is important while delegating the child rearing to his wife, because after all he's better than that.

It seems to me that the team of Palin and Palin really does understand what it means to be married, have kids, and to be a team. In a team, just like in a family, everyone has to step up and do whatever needs to be done for the good of the team.

If that means Dad stays home and changes diapers and cooks supper while his wife is helping to run our country, well so be it. Dad understands that his wife is intelligent and has lots to offer and can do good not just for her family but for her country.

Redneck election musings

Below is an email sent to me by a friend concerning our election and our presidential candidates, John McCain and Barrack Obama.


We, in Ireland, can't figure out why people are even bothering to hold an election in the United States.

On one side, you have a pants wearing lawyer, married to a lawyer who can't keep his pants on, who just lost a long and heated primary against a lawyer who goes to the wrong church who is married to yet another lawyer who doesn't even like the country her husband wants to run.

Now, on the other side, you have a nice old war hero whose name starts with the appropriate 'Mc' terminology married to a good looking younger woman who owns a beer distributorship.

What in Lord's name are you lads thinking over there in the colonies??

I thought that was hilarious, now we add a woman VP candidate for John McCain. A woman who hunts, fishes, is a life long memeber of the NRA and don't take shit off nobody.

On a more serious note, I'm royally pissed at US Weekly magazine and the shit they're spewing. Especially the stuff about her last baby. Some dumb ass group thinks she needs to have a DNA test to prove it's her baby. WTF! She was pregnant, she gave birth, of course it's her baby. What dumb blonde came up with that?

The liberal news is slamming her like no other. Talk about a bunch of sexist shit. I thought the left was supposed to be all about equality, and supportive and helpful of the underdog, to help the poor and disadvantaged rise above their stupidity, blah, blah.

The liberal left wingers in my opinion are a bunch of whining sissy bed wetters and bullies.

More support Palin gear

A few great designs on t-shirts, buttons, stickers and more in support of Sarah Palin.

More Sarah Palin

So the far left wingers are bitching, whining, complaining and hooting and hollering about Sarah Palin's daughter being pregnant.

Now a 17 year old pregnant girl isn't the best situation in the world, but on the other hand it isn't the end of the world either. She's not the first and won't be the last. Besides, that really has very little to do with how Sarah Palin will perform in office.

If I recall, George Bush's 2 daughters were somewhat wild there for awhile.

Besides, I've raised a couple of kids and let me tell ya, they don't always do what their parents want or what they think they should do. Thank God, most of them grow up.

I think the left wingers are just a bunch of nasty folks who have never left the city and were born with a silver spoon in their mouth and have nothing better to do than bully people. Yes, bully people. They've never grown up and can't see the big picture.

Sarah Palin's pregnant teen daughter is not the big picture. The big picture is how will she perform in office.

Quite frankly I think the left wing wackos are afraid of her. She is a good ole redneck gal who kicks ass and takes names later and doesn't put up with any shit. She's just what we need.

Sarah Palin, now there is a politician I can relate to. She's from Alaska, she hunts, she kicks ass at the office and she's a mother. She sounds like a redneck to me! I think this would be an awesome logo for her campaign.

ATF



Since this blog is called Redneck Revue, how about this latest great redneck t-shirt. Makes fun of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and rednecks. It's a great funny redneck t-shirt, that really personifies the redneck. I can see it in my mind, a bunch of rednecks out shooting trap, a cooler full of beer sitting on the tail gate of the truck and of course everyone has a cigarette hanging out of their mouth, all the while blasting the shit out of clay pigeons. So, if you need a unique and funny t-shirt as a gift for your favorite redneck, my funny redneck t-shirts and other gifts will bring tons of humor and laughter to all your favorite rednecks. ATF funny redneck shirts.

Grime Scene


We all know kids are dirty little boogers! Especially in the summer when they can spend all day outside geting inot God knows what.

I have the perfect t-shirt for those grimey little guys. The "Grime scene".

Perfect for little redneck kids who really get into stuff. I thought it was cute and appropriate to use the crime scene tape motif.

I've got a lot of other great shirts for kids, mostly for little boys right now. I used a lot of stuff boys like, loaders, tractors, bugs, snakes, and the like. No wimpy stuff for the little boys I want to see my shirts on. You can find all of my great funny t-shirts, matching sibling t-shirts and limited edition t-shirts for boys at
Little Imps.

New shirts designs for kids


Well folks I opened a new online t-shirt store with designs just for kids. It's far from done but thought I'd put the first of some of the designs.

I'm starting out with big brother, little brother and big sister, little sister, matching designs. I started putting of shirts for little boys first, using tractors, heavy equipment and stuff that little boys love. I'll be adding those to shirts for little girls too.

I'll do all the basic, gender designs you'd expect of shirts for boys and girls, but will also break away from tradition by adding the tractors, trucks, fishing, hunting and so on to the girls shirts. Girls like to hunt and fish too.

I have an Aunt who is famous in the super stocker tractor pulling world. You can see her here

So tractors, trucks and more power! Well, women love it too!
You can check out the new line of shirts for little boys, little girls, babies, etc at Little Imps

Keep checking back as I will be adding new stuff all the time.

Obama plays the race card, dumb ass!

So, Obama has decided to play the race card. What a dumb ass.

I'm from middle class, white, conservative, western Nebraska and I am a Redneck, and I could care less what color Obama is. Well, I didn't until he started whining about it.

Not to mention he's whining about hurricane Katrina. Kiss my big white ass.

You don't see any 300 pound black women in Iowa whining help me, some one feed me. In fact you don't see anyone whining they need any help. No, they are all helping each other clean up the mess and get on with there lives. No whining allowed.

Fuck FEMA.

And he's blaming Bush for Katrina? Give me a fucking break. Bad shit happens all the time.

In my opinion, blacks, african americans, mexicans, hispanics, gays, lesbians or whoever else you are that are claiming discrimination, prosecution, or what ever. I don't give one flying shit about any of that. YOU are the one who keeps bringing it up. I DON'T CARE! If you'd shut up about it, it wouldn't be a fucking issue.

Just come to work, do your job, and when you get home, I don't care if you sit in sweat lodge, fry fish, eat watermelons or give your SO a blow job or eat their pussy.

have a nice day.

Randy and Harley Booth

From ksid radio

Bond set at $75,000 / 10% for man arrested in Sunol Tuesday night


Bond has been set for a Sunol man accused of stabbing a neighbor Tuesday evening. Cheyenne County Sheriff Darrell Johnson says 54-year-old Randy Booth is in the local jail on $75,000 bond / ten percent.
Booth was arrested last night for allegedly stabbing another man in Sunol. The victim has not been publicly identified but KSID has learned he survived the incident and was listed in serious condition in the ICU at
Memorial Health Center in Sidney.
Booth is being held on charges of felony aggravated assault and use of a weapon to commit a felony.
The investigation into the incident remains ongoing. (Dave Collins 6/18)

Such scandalous goings on in Sunol, NE! Harley is Randy's 13/14 year old son and has made a habit of running across the street to the neighbors and peeking in their windows at their little girls. One of the neighbors finally got fed up and confronted Randy.

Randy is an odd duck and that's being nice, he's a 2 time convicted felon already so this is probably the end of the line for him. What will become of Harley remains to be seen. And what will happen to all of Randy's scroungy, nasty German Shepherds also remains to be seen. Most likely they will all be put down. They're not fit for rehab to go to new homes.

Tobacco and tax dollars


Rednecks and chew go together like hot dogs and buns. I am so sick of the government telling me I shouldn't smoke or chew! Assholes!

I know it's not good for you, but shit, it's not like I'm blowing up buildings or doing drive by shootings!

And for all you government geeks out there, if all of us chewers and smokers give up the bad nicotine tobacco habits, you'd lose all your cushy tax revenue.

Then what the hell ya gonna do? By the by, if you Google tobacco tax revenue you'll discover that all the money that was won in all those lawsuits that was supposed to help all of quit this nasty habit, is not being spent for that.

It's supporting all kinds of medical programs, the government crooks claim most of it is for kids, but I'd bet most of it is probably being spent on illegal immigrants and welfare moms who keep shelling out kids via immaculate conception.

Besides that what about all the other stuff the tobacco taxes fund. Like Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, Ne. It was built with a lot of cigarette tax money, but can you smoke in there? NOOOOOOOO!

So, to my government, I'll quit smoking/chewing when you can quit spending the tax dollars generated by my bad habit.

Redneck Hooker


Redneck Hooker

Funny how a word that means one thing to some folks can have a whole different meaning in a different part of the country. The redneck hooker is just that. To a redneck, a hooker is his favorite fishing lure.
