So, we have ISIS crossing the southern border,

Ebola gaining a foothold here, Houston's mayor working to allow sexual predators access to previously relatively safe areas for women and girls ...................................... I'm awaiting fire & brimstone from the heavens, tsunamis all over, etc., etc.

To aver the current POTUS is pathetically, woefully inadequate to the job is to make apologies for him - I, for one, am sick unto death of those who state he is 'having to fight Congress', 'inherited Bush's mess', or that WE 'need to be patient, as he's learning as he's going along'.  The whole POINT of aspiring to the Presidency of the United States is that one has PROVEN one's self as capable in lesser roles.  "Community organizing" is NOT a bullet point for a resume.

ISIS continues to threaten anyone not of their 'faith'.

Ebola hemorrhagic fever, our "leaders'" comments to the contrary, actually has an incubation period {when taking precautions is strongly advised} of, NOT 21 days, but 42 days.  {World Health Organization information}

Annise Parker, the radical lesbian who succeeded Bill White {or, as I refer to him, Bill Witless} as mayor of Houston, has decreed that empowering transgenders is "all about" her.  She is insisting on targeting ministers of faith who developed a petition regarding the decision to allow transgenders access to facilities designated for a specific sex - the pastors are concerned that sexual predators will claim transgender status, and thereby attain a comparatively unlimited pool of victims.  Annise Parker is following the Øbama footsteps in completely disregarding the Constitution.  {With Øbama & Co.'s tacit support}

What will be interesting is when a sexual predator tries to game the system and finds him/herself face-to-face with a person armed and with a CHL / CCW.  {Or, a woman with a small can of hairspray and a lighter.}  Also, when a man, dressed as a woman, goes into a lesbian bar's {women's} restroom - or a woman, dressed as a man, into a gay bar's {men's} restroom.  WHO's side will Parker and Øbama & Co. take at that point ?

Really SAD to see such goings-on ....................................

Dear PØTUS .......................................

We're all well aware of your contempt and disdain for our military; however, it MIGHT behoove you to at the very least, 'fake it', when disembarking from Marine One.






Those young MEN are VOLUNTEERS, to keep ALL Americans safe - while you work on destroying the best of the USA, they stand ready to defend ALL here, including you and your family.

If you're unable to salute properly, stick your hands in your pockets and stroll away ...............................

On my "Bucket List" ............................................

a ride in one of THESE bad boys - for those unaware, I DO b'lieve that is an SR-71 {spy plane} - my other 'rides' would be an F4U Corsair {Pappy Boyington's bird of choice} and "backseat" {actually, nose seat} of a Cobra helicopter ..........................................

Prayers answered ......................................

Back in March, we were notified that the company we were providing security for had decided to 'cut costs' by cutting OUR pay by $4.00/hr & going with unarmed security; since I elected to seek other opportunities, rather than pay for the "privilege" of continuing there {from $14.50/hr to $11.50/hr, 102 mile roundtrip every day}, the contract administrator for my company {who couldn't be arsed to try to keep our contract intact} became rather peeved at me ................................. so sad, too bad.

I was hired to work the security console of a worldwide concern, @ $16.00/hr.  Problem was, the alarms they utilized were dialed down so low, I couldn't hear them - my supervisors liked what they had seen of me, though, and arranged for me to be hired at another facility of this company, much shorter commute, @ $11.00/hr.  Problem with THAT job is boredom - I work 0600{6 am}-1800 {6 pm} Saturday & Sunday, 2200 {10 pm}-0600 {6 am} Mondays & Tuesdays, plus, that schedule makes it impossible to get any kind of circadian rhythm down pat.

Sooo, was texting with a friend from the 'cut our pay' job - SHE mentioned a new contract/company, starting at $17.50/hr, supervisors make more {I MAY be in the process of being considered for a shift supervisor}.  Went for an interview last Thursday, was told they'd notify by Tuesday .......................... Tuesday came & went ................................. Wednesday came & went .............................. I finally broke down & called today, left voicemail - got a call ~ 4 hours later, telling me to come in Friday for HAZWOPPER {?} training ..................................... I GOT A NEW JOB !!!!  BEST part is, at least 2 out of 3 of us, alumnae of the 'cut our pay' job, are ALSO hired - we worked well together before, I don't see it being any different ................................ {SIGH!!}

The FodGuy wants me to work through Tuesday; I'd kinda like to work through Sunday, have the rest of the week off, just RELAX .................................. ;-)
