Happy Hour

Mother, Mother Ocean

Mother, Mother Ocean, I've heard you call
Wanted to sail upon your waters since I was three feet tall
You've seen it all, you've seen it all
Watched the men who rode you, switch from sails to steam
In your belly you hold the treasures, few have ever seen
Most of 'em dream, most of 'em dream
Yes, I am a pirate, two hundred year's too late
The cannons don't thunder, there's nothin' to plunder
I'm an over-forty victim of fate
Arriving too late, arriving too late

Counted the Stars

Counted the stars on the 4th of July
Wishing we were rockets bursting in the sky
Talking about redemption and leaving things behind
I have these pictures and I keep these photographs
To remind me of a time
These pictures and these photographs
Let me know I'm doin' fine
We used to be so happy once upon a time
Once upon a time
But the sun sank west of the Mendocino County Line
And the sun sank west of the Mendocino County Line

Letter from Grassfire to send to Congress

Got this ditty from Pamela at Patriot Action Network. Funny, direct and spot on.
dear dipshits (congress)  

I’m faxing/emailing  you today to let you know that I strongly oppose Congress’ plan to raise the debt ceiling. Doing so would only enable lawmakers like you to consider spending our nation into oblivion! 

I have lost patience with you, and demand that you champion a tough, no nonsense approach to curbing this reckless economic spending spree that simply is not sustainable.

Americans like myself want real fiscal responsibility, and we are holding YOU accountable. Your very job depends on how you address this debt crisis. I urge you to oppose the raising of the debt ceiling, and will be watching how you vote when the time comes.

Brilliant post. To make it work those of us who care about the nation will have to get off our collective ass and work to derail the current express train to socialist Hell our "leaders" have us on.

Civic involvement will have to become as common as vegging out in the recliner has been. That could be a good thing, considering how political inaction by adults has led us to our current state of affairs.

Thanks Subvet. I did admit it came from a friend. Pamela is one smart cookie!
And your blog is on the co-conspirators list to the right!
