The Hardest Decision Of Your Entire Life

Happy Turkey Day

I don't know about anyone else but I am looking forward to a serious food coma when that bird is done.
I may be a skinny bastard but I can put surprisingly large amounts of groceries away when I want to and my elbows have been sharpened in anticipation.

Step away from the mashed potatoes if you know what is good for ya.

Of course, the Breasts are juicy goodness too.

Happy Thanksgiving.

It looks Like I Am Going To Miss the Festivities In Ferguson

Quite a few news outlets are reporting that the Grand Jury has reached a decision but they are postponing any announcement until later today.

There's a brilliant tactical fuck up there if I ever saw one.
Knowing full well that there are people just waiting to start a fucking riot and then waiting to announce your decision right when it gets dark outside.

That kind of stupid should be painful.

Either way, I have to go to That Place so I can continue to support those able bodied motherfuckers out there on the government tit who want to start Black Friday a little early this year down there in Ferguson.

The way I see it, if you are able to throw Molotov Cocktails during business hours, you are able to work at a job.

I dunno, maybe it's just me.

Fuck no it's not just me.

Worthless cocksuckers.

Anyway, I will be at work when the decision is announced.
I should be able to catch up on the casualty count and the number of arrests after I get home.

Media Sniveling Because There Aren't Any Riots In Ferguson Yet.

Boo hoo, the hype can only be kept at full boil for so long and they have been flogging that donkey all week.

Now that the expected Grand Jury decision's artificial deadline has passed without an announcement, one created by the media themselves,  they are whining because they don't have any thing exciting to talk about.

Why haven't we heard from Ferguson grand jury?

By Steve Almasy, CNN
(CNN) -- The signs pointed to the grand jury drawing near a decision as to whether Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson will be charged with a crime for fatally shooting Michael Brown.

But word leaked out Saturday that when the Missouri grand jury wrapped up its session Friday, it hadn't wrapped up the case. The 12 grand jurors will meet again Monday, sources said.

People are getting antsy. Supporters of Brown's family want to see Wilson go to trial. The officer's supporters want him to be vindicated.

Business owners worry about their property. Officials are concerned about keeping the peace.

And the media is crying because nothing is happening.

Fuuuuuuck, you.

I Remember

I was only three years old, almost four yet I can still remember watching the funeral procession on a Black and White television at my Grandmothers house.
I remember asking her why the boots were in the stirrups backwards and watching the caisson go down the street.
This from a guy who can barely remember what he ate for breakfast anymore.
To say John F. Kennedy's assassination fucked this country up is an understatement of massive proportions, the after effects are still tangible 51 years later even though almost that entire generation is gone.

Bill And The Genie

    Bill Clinton was driving past the White House when he accidentally ran over the Obama’s new puppy, Sunny, crushing it flat as a fritter.  He climbed out of his Rolls and sat down on the grass totally distraught.  He knew Michele would go friggin' ballistic.    
    Then Bill noticed a lamp half-buried in the ground.  He dug it up, brushed it off and immediately a Genie popped out.  "You have freed me from thousands of years of imprisonment," said the Genie "As a reward I shall grant you one wish."    
    "Well," said Bill, "I have all the material things I need, but let me show you this damned dog."
    They walk over to the splattered remains of Sunny.  "Do you think you could bring this dog back to life for me?" Bill asked.  
    The Genie  looked at the remains and shook his head.  "This critter is too far gone for even me to bring it back to life.  Maybe there's something else you'd like?"
    Bill thought for a minute, reached into his pocket and pulled out two photos.  "I had an affair with this beautiful young girl called Monica," said Bill, showing the genie the first photo.  "But I’m actually married to this woman called Hillary" and he showed the genie the second photo.  "You see what Hillary looks like, so do you think you can make her look like Monica?"
    The Genie studied the two photographs and after a few minutes said, "Damn, let's have another look at that dog!"

NSA Collected Information Despite Warnings Of Backlash

Some people there knew it was bad Ju Ju and they got over ruled.

The Whitehouse, the Professional Paranoid Spooks and some Senior Lawmakers were all for it though.

They have already collected more information than they could ever possibly process but that isn't stopping them because, you know, Terrorists and shit.

Government officials continued to collect American calling records despite concerns

Dissenters within the National Security Agency, led by a senior agency executive, warned in 2009 that the program to secretly collect American phone records wasn't providing enough intelligence to justify the backlash it would cause if revealed, current and former intelligence officials say.
The NSA took the concerns seriously, and many senior officials shared them. But after an internal debate that has not been previously reported, NSA leaders, White House officials and key lawmakers opted to continue the collection and storage of American calling records, a domestic surveillance program without parallel in the agency's recent history.
The warnings proved prophetic last year after the calling records program was made public in the first and most significant leak by Edward Snowden, a former NSA systems administrator who cited the government's deception about the program as one of his chief motivations for turning over classified documents to journalists. Many Americans were shocked and dismayed to learn that an intelligence agency collects and stores all their landline calling records.
In response, President Barack Obama is now trying to stop the NSA collection but preserve the agency's ability to search the records in the hands of the telephone companies — an arrangement similar to the one the administration quietly rejected in 2009. But his plan, drawing opposition from most Republicans, fell two votes short of advancing in the Senate on Tuesday.

Notice the Republicans are more than happy to let this bullshit continue because they are opposed to anything Obama wants, no matter what the citizens want because fuck you, they hate his ass more than anything in the world  and that takes precedence.

Arrogant motherfuckers.

It's not like we haven't learned that not only is the government collecting every phone call, and all internet traffic, they are flying airplanes around collecting the shit they can't get their hands on any other way.
I mean really, are you fucking kidding me?

What I really, really want to know and what these cocksuckers will never, ever admit, is just how many fucking terrorists they have nabbed in contrast to the unimaginable amounts of data they have collected already.

What's the ratio here fella's?
Two hundred trillion megabytes of info collected for one idiot that the FBI set up?

Something along those lines?

We will never know but you can bet your sorry ass that the amount of money, man hours and computing time is enormous for the payout received.

But, you can't be too careful because Abdul and his goat fucking buddies might be sending messages on Aunt Betty's old lap top ya know. Aunt Betty is probably part of a sleeper cell, you can't trust anyone anymore.

The whole thing makes me want to scream at the insanity.

Constitution free zones, the Fourth Amendment completely abbrogated and inumerable other down right illegal activities are all part of the plan and those same assholes everyone voted for earlier this month are almost gleefully giving it all a two thumbs up.

Fuck 'em all.

Obama To Announce Executive Actions On Immigration Reform Tomorrow.

This guy is begging for it.

Obama to announce executive action on immigration Thursday in primetime speech

President Obama, following through on his vow to sidestep Congress, will announce in a prime-time TV speech Thursday the executive actions he will take to change U.S. immigration law.

Obama will make his announcement, expected to protect roughly 5 million illegal immigrants from deportation, from the White House at 8 p.m. EST, then go to Las Vegas to promote the plan Friday.

The president will go ahead with his plan despite widespread opposition from Capitol Hill Republicans, who have asked him to wait until next year when the GOP controls the House and Senate to try to reform the country’s broken immigration system.

Obama is also under intense pressure from Hispanics and much of his liberal base to act now, after promising to act by September, then disappointing them by waiting until after the midterms.

Congressional Republican are already working on a strategy to stop Obama from using executive action, including a plan to submit a temporary spending bill that would cut any funding for related efforts like issuing Social Security cards for those protected under the Obama plan.

House Speaker John Boehner has warned Obama that taking such action before January would be tantamount to "playing with fire."

I'm sorry pal, Executive actions aren't the answer.

All this is going to do is fuck things up even worse than they are, then those worthless bastards in Congress are going to spend all their time trying to find ways to trick fuck all this instead of like, you know, actually working on a fucking solution.

Closing the motherfucking border, LIKE IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE, would be a giant step in the right direction.

But no, his fundamental transformation of turning the United States of America into some kind of bastardized version of the Euro Zone  isn't quite complete yet.

Missouri Governor Unleashes Police State Before Grand Jury Decision In Ferguson

By declaring a State of Emergency even before the Grand Jury decision, Governor Jay Nixon is setting the stage for the National Guard  and all the different Police Agencies to get set up and in position to counter any violent protests they are expecting .

He  is basically preparing for state sanctioned violence before any final decision has been made to send a message to the citizens that there will be no tolerance for violent protests either way.

Missouri governor declares state of emergency ahead of ruling on Ferguson shooting


By Scott Malone

FERGUSON Mo. (Reuters) - Missouri's governor declared a state of emergency on Monday and authorized the state's National Guard to support police in case of violence after a grand jury decides whether to indict a white police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black teenager.
"As part of our ongoing efforts to plan and be prepared for any contingency, it is necessary to have these resources in place in advance of any announcement of the grand jury’s decision," Governor Jay Nixon said in a statement. The order also puts the St. Louis County Police Department, rather than police in Ferguson, Missouri, in charge of policing protests.

Like I said the other day, the gloves are off and the game is on.

Judging from what I have seen in the recent past, I am predicting bloodshed this time.

Obama May Have A Pen But The Voters Have Spoken In Oregon

I grew up in Oregon and the Western half is  pretty solid Blue while the Eatern side is reliably Conservative.
The Blue side has most of the population though and you can pretty much consider Oregon to be a Blue State.

Maybe not quite as Blue as some had hoped though it seems.

Oregon immigration vote is a warning for Obama

Even as Oregon voters were legalizing recreational marijuana and expanding Democratic majorities in state government, they decided by a margin of 66-34 to cancel a new state law that would have provided driver's licenses to people who are in the United States illegally.
Obama is considering acting on his own, as early as this week, to possibly shield from deportation up to 5 million immigrants now living illegally in the country. Some Republicans in Congress are threatening a government shutdown if the president follows through.
"The Oregon measure tells you these measures are not easy or simple," said Muzaffar Chishti of the Migration Policy Institute. "The political cost may be significant, even in blue states."
The state law had seemed to be popular. It easily passed last year with bipartisan support in the Democratic-controlled Legislature and was signed Democratic Gov. John Kitzhaber, who was re-elected Nov. 4.
Opponents barely gathered enough signatures to put the repeal question on the ballot. Immigrant rights groups outspent their opponents 10-1.

Still, the measure failed in every county but the state's most liberal one, Multnomah, home to Portland. Even there it trailed significantly behind other Democratic candidates and causes.

"It was really the epitome of a grassroots effort," said Cynthia Kendoll, one of the activists who led the campaign against licenses. "There's such a disconnect between what people really want and what's happening."

There are hundreds of thousands of Hispanics in Oregon and as you see above the Grassroots  effort was out spent 10 to 1 yet  Oregonians as a whole rejected the notion of giving illegal aliens drivers licenses.
There may be some hope for our rusty, web footed neighbors yet.

Oregon pretty much got Californiacated as did much of Washington state back in the 90's and early 20000's and it really shows in some of their Liberal laws the last twenty years but even they say enough is enough here.

Did you get that Obama?
A state that went for you twice thinks maybe we should quit coddling these undocumented  immigrants and tell them to go through the immigration  process like everyone else who wants to become a citizen of this country!

Maybe because when you issue them a fucking drivers license, they aren't undocumented anymore you putz!

They along with the rest of us want this problem controlled, not made worse by you and your fucking pen.

So the people who are citizens decided to hell with the government assholes who thought it was such a great idea, including the very Democratic Governor and overturned a law that had been signed and put on the books already!

There's a message for you there.

Listen to it and quit being a spoiled child throwing a tantrum when he doesn't get what he wants.
As a matter of fact, you had better get used to not getting your way.

Presidential Signing Statements are a piss poor excuse for any law and are very limited as to who actually has to enforce their purpose.

You can sign ten  thousand of them and still will have not passed one single law.

How's it feel to go from being Important one day to Impotent the next?

Thank You For Making The Obvious Official, Report On Dorner Fiasco Says LA Cops Profile People.

I wonder how much that bit of common knowledge cost to put on paper and get collated and stapled together?

Dorner report finds concerns over bias within LAPD

Los Angeles Times | November 13, 2014 | 10:20 PM
A Los Angeles Police Department review of its discipline system prompted by the Christopher Dorner rampage found widespread concerns among officers and civilians that the agency discriminates based on gender, ethnicity and rank, according to a report reviewed by The Times.
Focus group sessions with more than 500 department employees found that many of those interviewed believed internal investigations were unfair and punishments were subjective, the document said.

Gettin' A Dose Of Winter Early

And we are the lucky ones.

It's spitting snow, the local news talking heads are loving it and have several idiots out in it all over the place going on and on.

Same shit, different year.

Just a bit East of here they are really getting slammed though.
The fucking wind has been howling around here for three days now and my back yard looks like a Hurricane blew through.
Fir tree branches and debris every where,probably two pickup loads waiting to be cleaned up and hauled off and its not a big yard.

I hope everyone reading this is toasty warm and doesn't need to go out in this crap.
I am going to have to go to work here in a bit and will be driving closer to that damn gorge.
The Columbia River Gorge is a national scenic area and is very beautiful, it is also a natural funnel for wind and weather between the Eastern parts of Oregon and Washington and the Western parts.

All this freezing bullshit gets blow right down that gorge at a high rate of speed and anything over there is over here very quickly.

Right now that gorge is a blizzard factory. It gets bad enough they close that whole thing off and it is the major East West highway around here.

I texted my mom yesterday when I heard this mess was coming and told her to make sure the outside faucets had covers on them, to make sure she had emergency lighting, bottled water on hand and to make a run to the store.

I told my wife the same thing.

The cable chains are in my rig if I need them and the insulated coveralls are going in right before I leave.

I am going to make sure my Get Home bag is in order too.

Stay warm my friends and stay home if you don't have to be out in this mess, it will blow over pretty quick.

Taking The Gloves Off In Ferguson MO.

It looks to me like there is going to be a fight and the gloves are going to come off this time.

Missouri governor outlines Ferguson preparations

WELDON SPRING, Mo. – Police will work to protect peaceful protesters after a grand jury's decision in the Michael Brown shooting case is announced, but those who cross the line into violence will face consequences, Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon warned Tuesday.

More than 1,000 police officers have received special training ahead of a decision expected later this month about whether Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson, who is white, will face criminal charges for fatally shooting Brown, 18, who was black and unarmed.

The National Guard will be available if needed and a unified command of state, St. Louis city and St. Louis County police will provide security for protests.

At a news conference with law enforcement officials to outline preparations, Nixon recalled violent protests that occurred soon after Brown was killed in August.

"That ugliness was not representative of Missouri and it cannot be repeated," he said.

Massachusettes, The Grand Nanny State

Damn, I thought California was bad for being a nanny State, these people back East are starting to make them look good.

Massachusetts town weighs nation's 1st tobacco ban


WESTMINSTER, Mass. (AP) — The cartons of Marlboros, cans of Skoal and packs of Swisher Sweets are hard to miss stacked near the entrance of Vincent's Country Store, but maybe not for much longer: All tobacco products could become contraband if local health officials get their way.

This sleepy central Massachusetts town of 7,700 has become an improbable battleground in America's tobacco wars. On Wednesday, the Board of Health will hear public comment on a proposed regulation that could make Westminster the first municipality in the United States to ban sales of all tobacco products within town lines.

"To my knowledge, it would be the first in the nation to enact a total ban," said Thomas Carr, director of national policy at the American Lung Association. "We commend the town for doing it."

Town health agent Elizabeth Swedberg said a ban seemed like a sensible solution to a vexing problem.

"The tobacco companies are really promoting products to hook young people," she said, pointing to 69-cent bubblegum-flavored cigars, electronic cigarettes and a new form of dissolvable smokeless tobacco that resembles Tic Tac candies. "The board was getting frustrated trying to keep up with this."

Yeah, not so fast there you control freak.

So many people have called Town Hall about the proposal, the Board of Health — whose meetings about septic system updates and mosquito control rarely attract an audience — will hold Wednesday's public hearing in an elementary school cafeteria rather than in its usual second-floor conference room.

Something tells me these elitist sonsabitches may be in for a surprise at that meeting.

Let me tell you something, smokers will stare Death in the face and overcome any obstacle to obtain a cigarette if they are out.

Trust me on this.

If by some miracle this ban passes you can kiss a bunch of little convenience stores goodbye the next day.

The article even states that if it passes people will just drive down the road where it is legal and stock up.

It never ceases to amaze me though that some fucking people have nothing better to do than tell other people how they need to live their lives, constantly.

Who the fuck died and made you the boss of any damn thing?

That first group needs to be locked in a room full of smokers without any cigarettes for 24 hours and if they survive see if they don't suddenly find a new hobby, in a new town, in a hurry.

Nice Try

I have to fix the damn garage door again.
I swear if I ever get my hands on the assholes who installed it I will throttle them with my bare hands until their eyes bulge out and their lips turn blue.

They didn't adjust the sensors or the swinging connector link between the screw mechanism and the attaching mount on the door right and it keeps pulling its self apart.
It has bent the flimsy shit they used to hold it all together and it has lost it's rigidity.

This means yet another trip to the hardware store.

Unless one wants to go through about twenty stoplights and a shit load of traffic on the main drag, the way to get there is the freeway.
Ten minutes, boom, there ya are.

So as I am getting off the freeway, I see two guys with signs, a beat to shit old Toyota Camry with the flashers on and a gas can sitting on the trunk.
This is a big off ramp, two lanes and damn near a quarter mile long so it's a favorite spot for pan handlers.
There is one guy on either side of these two lanes and they both have large blank pieces of cardboard with messages wanting money because they ran out of gas.

If one wasn't paying attention it would seem legit.
They both look like working stiffs in their 30's and you know, are just low on funds and ran out of gas.
It would make you want to help a guy out, ya know?

I'm thinking things are not as they appear at first glance.

It's just a little too convenient that they just happened to have two large pieces of flat cardboard with nothing on one side and a heavy duty black felt pen to write with at this convenient location with lots of traffic on a nice sunny Fall day.

It's also quite convenient that is a large gravel pull out right next to the stop light and a wide shoulder on the other side so that two guys can stick their signs in your face at once.

No dice fella's, I was born at night but it wasn't last night.
I'll give them points for creativity but I ain't buying it.

Maybe next time one of you two could get your pregnant daughter with her other kid on her hip to stand there on one side, that'll pull the suckers in.
Either that or get real creative like these two.

New Police Cars Spy On Cops, How Ya Like Those Apples?

How many times have you see cops driving around without their seat belts on?
Can you even count how many times you have seen them speed by you for no apparent reason?

Those little black boxes that law enforcement and insurance outfits love so much in newer cars are now going to start ratting out cops with bad habits, in real time.


Ford’s newest line of police cruisers are designed to catch bad guys on both sides of the law.

Ford Telematics for Law Enforcement — designed by the automaker and California software firm Telogisis — is built into the company’s latest line of law enforcement Taurus and Explorer Interceptors, and tracks when officers bend the rules of the road while policing it.

The system tracks a swath of data about the driving habits of girls and boys in blue, including when the siren and lights are activated, driving speed compared to the limit, sudden braking, acceleration, spin-outs and anti-lock brake engagement. Telematics for Law Enforcement transmits the data in real-time, and has already been outfitted on 50 Los Angeles police cruisers.

“From a business standpoint, these are expensive vehicles with expensive employees driving them,” former L.A. Country sheriff and Washington State University Professor Bryan Vila said in a Wednesday Wired report. “When they crash, they’re also more likely to kill bystanders and civilians, so there’s a public safety side. I’ve been looking forward to seeing the LAPD implementing this.”

The system also knows when officers are using their seat belts and when their airbags have deployed in a crash, alerting dispatchers to send assistance. Ford’s new features are expected to encourage safer and more responsible driving among officers, who regularly skip wearing seatbelts because it gets in the way of other gear, and can slow them down when they need to exit vehicles fast, according to the report.

Ford has yet to disclose a price for the system, which should be widely available next year.

I was a Ford factory trained mechanic back in the 90's and I saw this kind of crap coming clear back when they were first designing it.

People have no clue just how advanced the electronics are in new cars.
It's a fact that a 1985 Mustang had more computing power on board than the Lunar Module that landed on the moon.

When I quit working on cars for a living clear back in 1999, the new Lincoln models that year had 11 computers on board that all talked to each other at the same time through one wire.
It's called Multiplexing and that was clear back then.

Just try and imagine what those rotten bastards could do now if they didn't have any restraints put on them.

Driverless cars are a reality right now.

It just cracks me up though that all these arrogant pricks are going to find out just where on the food chain they really are.

Click it or ticket, bitches!

Dirty Deeds Aren't So Cheap After All

This is so ironic and bizarre I don't really know what to say!
It just makes me wonder why someone who has to be filthy rich by now can't manage to just get on a plane and go somewhere that those people who are pissing you off can't follow?

I guess it just goes to show money can't buy everything after all, like competent contract killers.

AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd charged with plotting murder of two people

Phil Rudd, the drummer for legendary Australian rock band AC/DC, has been charged in New Zealand with attempting to arrange the murders of two people.

The New Zealand Herald reported that the 60-year-old appeared in court Thursday morning in Tauranga, on the country's North Island. The paper reported that he was also charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of cannabis, and making threats to kill. Rudd entered no plea in connection with the charges and was released on bail. His next court appearance is scheduled for Nov. 27.

Rudd was arrested Thursday morning after police raided his waterfront home. Tauranga Police Detective Sergeant Darryl Brazier told the SunLive news outlet that the search was ordered after a member of the public contacted authorities, but had no further details. Rudd was ordered to have no contact with the man he allegedly hired to carry out the murders. The name of the alleged hitman and the would-be victims were ordered suppressed by the case judge.

The BBC reports that under New Zealand law, Rudd could receive up to 10 years in prison if found guilty of the charge of attempting to procure a murder.

The group was formed in 1973 by Malcolm Young and his brother Angus and have sold more than 200 million albums around the world. Among those is their 1976 album "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap," the title track of which features a hitman offering his services to people in desperate situations.

You knew this was coming though, didn't ya?

Can You Say Lame Duck?

So the Republicans took control of the Senate and kept the House, Harry Reid finally gets booted from Senate majority leader and Obama is going to be making phone calls and ordering new pens by the bucket load.

Oh boy.

Visions of lobbyists rubbing their hands together in glee are dancing in my head.

I'm afraid this country is too far gone for any of it to make much difference anymore.

Rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic didn't stop it from sinking and rearranging the seating in the Senate isn't going to stop what is coming either.

Taking a Short Break

I have been blogging since 2006.
That is a long time and I have felt rather lethargic and ambivalent about the whole deal lately so I have been taking a break.

We went to Seattle over the weekend and I can tell you this, they can have that fucking city.
Parking is non existent and they charge outrageous fees for the privilege.
Parking lots near anything having some event nearby get away with highway robbery, I kid you not.
Spots that normally go for $4 or five bucks shoot up to $30.
When all existing parking spaces within a half fucking mile are full, private and public, the city of Seattle gets in on the action and charges you $47 when you try and get creative.
Ask me how I know this, I dare you.

We went to the Seahawks/Raiders game.

Parking was anywhere from $20 to SIXTY FUCKING DOLLARS!!

I can't believe the city lets people get away with that kind of gouging but apparently they do

Oh yeah, I have a message to those people who design the road direction signs around that city too.

In over 35 years of driving in cities all across this once great country I have never seen such cryptic, obscure fucking road signs and I never want to have to try and deal with that shit in the dark, in the rain and in a strange city ever again.

Another little thing I noticed is how fucking rude and impatient those sonsabitches are.

You would think you were in New York City with all the constant horn honking and the fucking pedestrians OWN that city man.

Some asshole was beeping their horn every where you went for no apparent reason that I could discern.

Down town was a freak show so that was mildly entertaining whilst I waited outside the Seahawks merchandise store.
Finally got to cross the Space Needle off my bucket list. Saw the Jimi Hendricks museum shit at Seattle Center too.
$90 for four people at each place to get in.

Expensive town people, expensive town.
Unless you absolutely have to go there or are a seeker of pain I would suggest you avoid the place at all costs.

I Need To Start Paying Attention Closer To Home

Here I thought I keep up with the news pretty good.
It looks like I don't pay enough attention to the local shit.

For example, just today, I surfed around a bit before I went to work and saw the usual bullshit.

I get to work and find out some guy went ape shit because his HOA had been fucking him around, I guess he was renting out rooms in his house and it was going all the way to court when he just snapped.
He got out his AK and went and shot some lady in the face he was pissed off at then went general bug fuck crazy and drove down town and started shooting at random cars on the highway before the cops finally cornered his ass.

In the end they sicced the dogs on what turned out to be a quickly cooling corpse.

The asshole did himself in before the cops could finish him.

I really wish these types would just jump to the end before they get started, it would save everybody a whole bunch of grief.

All this happened within three miles of here, traveling from East North East to West South West.
The fucking highways were closed off and all kinds of shit.
I managed to miss the whole thing.

As if this isn't rather important enough, then I find out Cousin Ebola is in town!!

Fuck me!!
How did I miss this little scrap of information?

Somewhere in an "undisclosed hospital" over in Portland.

Undislosed as in Oregon Health Sciences University Hospital, otherwise known as OHSU around these parts.

That is far and away the only facility within hundreds of miles in any direction that could handle something like that.

Basically the only one between Seattle, San Francisco and Denver.

This makes me wonder just what else I have been missing around here.

I'm going to have to tune in I guess.

It's not like there is a shortage of crazy fuckers around here, I just get busy doing other shit and my work schedule is such that it seems everything goes on either while I am still asleep or at work.
