That’s what i said; be a good web parasite.

I write a lot of my articles on HubPages and I recently had my 5-year anniversary writing on the HP site.

During that time, I have learned a lot of interesting things about writing informational articles that make money. Not a lot of money, but a decent enough money to keep me involved and creating.

Who Crashed my PC – Part-2

Who Crashed my PC – Part-2 What do I use my PC for, anyway?

I realized that this was the real question for me if I ended up needing to purchase a new PC.  I knew that how I recovered my data was an integral part of the resolution to my larger problem. My real problem was what did I need for the future, not what worked OK in the past

So, I sat back and spent some time reviewing just what I used my PC for, now that I was more involved as a writer, a traveler, and a retiree. Did I keep on down the same road, or did I need to reset my computer use goals?

My decision process is shown in my Blog listed below. Click on it and read about what a retired writer/traveler was doing with his PC.

Making excuses for the Tea Party, Trying to condone the destruction of America

Roadside Sign

I was listening to the news yesterday and there was an endless line of Congressmen marching in front of the cameras.

The were either attacking and blaming each other for the ridiculous brinksmanship we Americans have been dragged through.

The amazing thing was that each one continued to feel that they were the ones that were right and that the “other guys” were to be blamed for the recent damage to our nation.  Continue reading “Making excuses for the Tea Party, Trying to condone the destruction of America”

IWas Just Thinkin’ – IRS Agents, FBI Agents

Just Chewing on my Cud, Why?

I was Just Thinkin’

With the mistakes of the FBI relative to catching terrorists being blamed on a manpower shortage, I just had an epiphany.

Obama stuck a provision in his omnipotent Obama-Care Bill that allowed for the hiring of over 15,000 new IRS agents to catch Americans who cheat on their taxes.

At the same time, the FBI doesn’t have enough agents to track every potential terrorist that enters and leaves our country.

SO…… Let’s take the money for at least half of those potential IRS agents and hire more FBI Agents.

This way we get better protection for ALL Americans working against potential terrorist threats, and the IRS can still have 7500 more people to catch those of us who try to claim our dogs as a dependent.

It Looks Good to Me!

AMERICAN GULLIBLE an article on how we are allowing the government to waste our Social Security

AMERICAN GULLIBLE

Here is a great and thoughtful article written by fellow Hubber Wayne Brown.
I think every one of us that has concerns about our federal representatives and what they are doing with the budget and debt should read this one.

I recommend it highly.

—————————–

Congresional Representatives or LEMMINGS

LEMMINGS or REPRESENTATIVES of the PEOPLE?

That’s my question.

AS I continue to get up every morning and check the latest news, the #1 topic is the National Budget.

Oh, and the FISCAL CLIFF!

The latest is that all of our brilliant representatives and even our newly elected leader are just going to “Jump off the Cliff Together” and “Fix the problem next year”

I’m not going to justify this stupidity with any scathing comments or boiling outrage.
Rather, I thought I would look up the famous RODENT called the LEMMING!

It seems that the Lemming is an animal that can be closely compared with our Leaders in Washington. Here are some good comparisons that I thought you might like.

1- Lemmings suffer from over-population regularly.
—–We have way too many people working in Washington, sucking off of the Federal Tit, so to speak whose jobs often depend on their building their own bureaucratic empires.
2- Lemmings are LONERS until they have outgrown their habitat,then they come together to relocate.
—– Our Congressmen would rather be on the multitude of TV shows than work in their offices to solve problems.
3- Lemmings are RODENTS.
—– Our supposed representatives are RATS at heart considering that they don’t care about the common man anymore and would rather wreck our struggling economy than work together and fix the problems.
4- Although Lemmings can swim, they will jump in-mass into water that is too deep and too wide for them to survive,.\—– Our Congressional houses are now run by special interest groups who really don’t care if they lose their jobs, so long as they maintain their stands as defind by their wealthy campaign contributors.

SO, lets just admit to ourselves that we are presently led by the LEMMINGS OF CONGRESS. There are left-handed Lemmings and there are right-handed lemmings.
AND their little whiskers are twitching and they are rubbing their little paws together as they keep watching the horizon for a sign to run for the closest CLIFF, FISCAL or whatever.

Nuff Said!

Just Thinkin’ #5, the Fiscal Cliff, AGAIN!

I was Just thinking, again!

I know, but it is’s a bad Habit that I just can’t shake.

I glanced up at the News on TV. You know that canned stuff putout to entertain us, but at the same time to not upset us too much?

Well, it looks like even the media is fed up with our elected officials in Washinston.

You see, someone, I don’tknow who, but someone, showed them where even they would be paying more taxes starting on Jan.1 if our Senators and Representatives do not get off of teir pompous Ass’ and come to some kind of agreement for our government to have a budget to operate on.

Yep, The Fools are all standing there, in front of the cameras, pointing their manicured fingers at each other, like pouting children.

You and Me? Well, we get to sit here and watch in wonder at our supposed leaders refuse to lead!

Like I said; Just thinkin!

The Republican Convention in Tampa and our Tax Dollars used

The Republican National Convention is to be held in Tampa Florida, shortly, and the article that I read in the local paper included these interesting numbers for us all to consider.

1- The Federal Government (that means us!) is paying $50-MILLION dollars for Convention Security.  Now that’s a lot of money, but even worse, you must remember that each party will receive the exact same amount of moneys from the Federal government for the security of all of those drunken privileged few that get to attend these conventions.

2- The article also mentioned that the Federal Elections Committee is providing $18.2-MILLION Dollars to the RNC’s Committee on Arrangements to “make Mitt Romney look good” What does that mean? These funds will come from those of us that allowed the federal government to take $3.00 from each of us  on our tax documentation.

Combine all of the Federal Funds involved and you get $136-MILLION in TAXPAYER Dollars for these political parties to, and I quote; “watch people wearing stupid hats and see a lot of balloons drop.”

As the article says.

IS IT ANY WONDER THAT WE ARE $15-TRILLION dollars in DEBT?
