I don't know if it's true or not, but I heard a rumor that the Easter Bunny saw his shadow this morning. That means 6 more weeks of cold weather!!



Just a joke, of course (I hope!!!), and Happy Easter to all.

Off Topic Discussion / Danica at Daytona
« on: February 13, 2018, 09:11:10 AM »
A priest, a rabbi and a man with a dog walk into a bar.

 The race is on the TV and when the announcer says Danica is up to 25th the dog jumps up and runs around the bar 25 times.

 Awhile later they annonce that Danica is up to 10th, and the dog races around the bar 10 times.

 After awhile they announce Danica's up to 3rd and the dog races around the bar 3 times.

 The bartender sez That's amazing! What'll he do if Danica wins?

 And the man says I dunno, I've only had him for seven years.

Off Topic Discussion / The Ventriloquist Touring Sweden...........
« on: January 30, 2018, 03:18:19 PM »
                            A young ventriloquist is touring Sweden. One night, he's doing a show in a small rural town. With his dummy on his knee, he starts going
                            through his customary dumb-blonde jokes.

                            Suddenly, a blonde woman in the fourth row stands on her chair and starts shouting, "I've heard enough of your ***** blonde jokes.

                            What makes you think you can stereotype Swedish blonde women that way?

                            What does the color of a woman's hair have to do with her worth as a human being?

                            It's men like you who keep women like me from being respected at work and in the community, and from reaching our full potential as  people.

                            It's people like you that make others think that all blondes are dumb!

                            You and your kind continue to perpetuate discrimination against not only blondes, but women in general... pathetically, all in the name of
                            humor!"

                            When the embarrassed ventriloquist begins to apologize, the blonde shouts... "You stay out of this! I'm talking to that little jackass on your lap!"

Off Topic Discussion / Super Bowl Tickets...
« on: January 25, 2018, 05:21:10 PM »

I know it's late notice, but a friend of  mine has two tickets for the Super Bowl in Minneapolis, MN at the new U. S. Bank Stadium on Sunday, February 4th. 

They are box seats and he paid $3,500 per ticket, which includes the ride to and from the airport, lunch, dinner, a $400.00 bar tab and a pass to the winners locker room after the game.  What he didn't realize when he bought them last year was that it's on the same day as his wedding. 



If you are interested, he is looking for someone to take his place.  It's at St. Paul's Church at 3 p.m.  Her name is Ashley.  She's 5'4", about 115 pounds, very pretty, a good cook, loves to fish and hunt and will clean your truck.  She'll be the one in the white dress.

Off Topic Discussion / A message from Charlie Krauthammer
« on: October 26, 2017, 10:22:44 AM »
A friend e-mailed this to me today. I thought I'd share it........


Wonder why this is not considered SUBVERSION

In case you have not learned about this, please read this very important, intelligently written, true account of what is happening in our Democracy daily!

A somewhat long read but an eye opener.....


By Charles Krauthhammer

 New York Post:

I do not understand how living in a country with its democracy
established over 200 years ago, and now, for the first time in
history, suddenly we have one of our former presidents set up a group called "Organizing for Action" (OFA).

OFA is 30,000+ strong and working to disrupt everything that our
current president’s administration is trying to do. This organization
goes against our Democracy, and it is an operation that will destroy our way of governing. It goes against our Constitution, our laws, and the processes established over 200 years ago. If it is allowed to proceed then we will be living in chaos very much like third world countries are run. What good is it to have an established government if it is not going to be respected and allowed to follow our laws?

If you had an army some 30,000 strong and a court system stacked over the decades with judges who would allow you to break the laws, how much damage could you do to a country? We are about to find out in America!

Our ex-president said he was going to stay involved through community organizing and speak out on the issues and that appears to be one post-administration promise he intends to keep. He has moved many of his administration's top dogs over to Organizing for Action.

OFA is behind the strategic and tactical implementation of the
resistance to the Trump Administration that we are seeing across
America, and politically active courts are providing the leverage for this revolution.

OFA is dedicated to organizing communities for "progressive" change.
Its issues are gun control, socialist healthcare, abortion, sexual
equality, climate change, and of course, immigration reform.

OFA members were propped up by the ex-president's message from the shadows: "Organizing is the building block of everything great we have accomplished Organizers around the country are fighting for change in their communities and OFA is one of the groups on the front lines. Commit to this work in 2017 and beyond."

OFA's website says it obtained its "digital" assets from the
ex-president's re-election effort and that he inspired the movement.
In short, it is the shadow government organization aimed at resisting and tearing down the Constitutional Republic we know as AMERICA.

Paul Sperry, writing for the New York Post, says, “The OFA will fight President Donald Trump at every turn of his presidency and the ex-president will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House."

Sperry writes that, “The ex-president is setting up a shadow
government to sabotage the Trump administration through a network of non-profits led by OFA, which is growing its war chest (more than $40 million) and has some 250 offices nationwide. The OFA IRS filings, according to Sperry, indicate that the OFA has 32,525 (and growing) volunteers nationwide. The ex-president and his wife will oversee the operation from their home/ office in Washington DC.

Think about how this works.. For example: Trump issues an immigration executive order; the OFA signals for protests and statements from pro-immigrant groups; the ACLU lawyers file lawsuits in jurisdictions where activist judges obstruct the laws; volunteers are called to protest at airports and Congressional town hall meetings; the leftist media springs to action in support of these activities; the twitter sphere lights up with social media; and violence follows. All of this happens from the ex-president's signal that he is heartened by the protests.

If Barack Obama did not do enough to destroy this country in the 8 years he was in office, it appears his future plans are to destroy the foundation on which this country has operated on for the last 241 years.

If this does not scare you, then we are in worse trouble than you know.

So, do your part. You have read it, so at least pass this on so others will know what we are up against. We are losing our country and we are so compliant. We are becoming a "PERFECT TARGET" for our enemy!

According to some newly released information, regarding the Harvey Weinstein debacle, it appears that he liked to contribute to political campaigns/politicians. Among the better known, on his list of contribution receptors were:
1)Elizabeth Warren, the self-proclaimed, "Native American" candidate in the 2016 Presidential election;
2)New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, a well known, Democratic "rabble rouser";
3)Nevada Senator, Harry Reid....he needs no introduction;
4)Former President (UGH!!!) Barack Obama;
5)Hillary (I NEVER refused a contribution) Clinton;
6)Our very own State Senator, Chuck Schumer.......we're SO proud of him!

Racing Discussion / Department of HUH???
« on: September 17, 2017, 06:13:36 PM »
I just finished watching the NASCAR race from Chicago (great win, "east coast modified graduate", Marty Truex!!), and during the race, the NBC commentators were discussing Stewart-Haas' decision to cut Danica loose. The commentators were saying that the way she first talked about this development, they interpreted it as she was "retiring" from racing.

She then clarified it, and stated that she meant that she didn't want to continue UNLESS she could secure a competitive ride.

HUH??

She's had "competitive rides" for the last 5-6 years, ever since she came to NASCAR, and if she finishes 15th, for her it's a great day............

I've been running errands around the Rochester area this afternoon, and have been driving in and out of rain. Been home here, in West Webster, and it's been raining off and on for a little while, with the sun beginning to peek out.

Haven't read anything official, yet, and it's nearing 3:30PM.............

Racing Discussion / The "DOGFIGHT" website
« on: June 13, 2017, 07:24:10 AM »
I'm sure that many of you fans of the 50s-70s modifieds remember when there was a section of the H.A.M.B. website devoted to this era of oval track racing. The moderators at that site were very picky about keeping it within that era, and as the photos being posted started to creep into the 80s, they shut it off, and moved everybody over to the 'DOGFIGHT' website.

The DOGFIGHT site was up and running for a couple of years, but it appears, at least to me, that the site has shut down, as I can't access it anymore. Has anyone else visited that site in the past, and is now experiencing this, too?

Off Topic Discussion / Former AG, on Loretta Lynch
« on: June 10, 2017, 01:21:01 PM »

Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey on Friday accused former President Barack Obama's attorney general, Loretta Lynch, of turning the Justice Department into "an arm of the [Hillary] Clinton campaign."

"What makes it egregious is the fact — and I think it's obvious that it is a fact — that the attorney general of the United States was adjusting the way the department talked about its business so as to coincide with the way the Clinton campaign talked about that business," Mukasey said on Newsmax TV.

"In other words, it made the Department of Justice essentially an arm of the Clinton campaign," said Mukasey, who served as the nation's top law enforcement official under former President George W. Bush.


But...but...but......Trump is "obstructing justice"!!


The eternal depths of "the swamp" is slowly coming into view.



In a sweeping testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, fired FBI Director James Comey claimed that Lynch directed him to refer to the FBI's probe of Clinton's use of a private email server while secretary of State as a "matter," as opposed to an investigation.
"At one point, the attorney general had directed me not to call it an investigation, but instead to call it a matter, which confused me and concerned me," Comey told lawmakers.

He added that the directive was one of several that prompted him to make the unusual move of side-stepping the Justice Department in the July announcement that his bureau closed the Clinton investigation.

"I don’t know whether it was intentional or not, but it gave the impression that the attorney general was looking to align the way we talked about our work with the way a political campaign was describing the same activity, which was inaccurate," he said.

Off Topic Discussion / Charlie Daniels on Chuck Schumer
« on: May 24, 2017, 03:12:20 PM »
By Charlie Daniels | May 24, 2017 | 12:17 PM EDT

Sen. Schumer, I don't live in your constituency, but in the larger picture, you live in mine and every other legal, taxpaying American citizen who is affected by the power you hold in your political party, your blind allegiance to it and the obstructionist posture to anything that doesn't directly benefit it.
There's something sinister about seeing you bent over the lectern in the Senate Chamber, your countenance resembling what I would imagine Edgar Allen Poe's would look like reciting one of his macabre tales of doom and gloom, as if there is not one drop of happiness in your life, forecasting a dismal future for America if anything President Trump proposes passes both houses, is signed and becomes law.

I know you're disappointed. I know you had the balloons ready to fall and the corks halfway out of the champagne bottles on election night. And I know you just can't face the truth that what happened in the election was exactly the same thing you continue to do: you forgot about the working people; you forgot about the empty factories of the rust belt; you took for granted the high crime, low employment, inner cities you've made un-kept promises to for decades. Instead of looking inward at the real cause for your party's loss, you had to find a scapegoat, and if it hadn't been Russia, it would have been something else.

Sen. Schumer, will you do me and America a favor? Will you lay your hand on a Holy Bible and tell America that you believe in your heart that Donald Trump has actually colluded with Vladimir Putin and the Russian government to the detriment of the United States of America?

You see, sir, everything you've come up with so far, and you've been at it since well before the election, has been superficial. And I believe that anything your special counsel will come up with will also be superficial, guilt by association, the fires of triviality fanned and proliferated by a tilted, hate-filled media and super partisan politicians.

Sen. Schumer, what goes around truly does come around, and if, or should I say when, this pendulum starts swinging back the other way, do you realize that Mr. Mueller could actually find a lot more dirt on prominent Democrats than they do Trump and his staff?

You have opened Pandora's Box, sir, and basically thrown away the lid.

Now it’s time to chop the log and let the chips fall where they will.

If President Trump has actually colluded with the Russians or any other foreign government, or sold out my beloved nation in any way, I definitely want to know about it, and if he has, he should be impeached and thrown out of office in disgrace. But right now, you're a hell of a long way from proving even one iota of your accusations.

Now let's turn this coin over.

Did or did not Hillary Clinton sign off on allowing a Russian agency to purchase a company holding up to 20 percent of America’s uranium production capacity?

Who leaked the classified information that started this ball rolling? For the investigation to be valid, that has to come out.

Did Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton's State department, through incompetence, indifference or both, allow four American citizens to die in Benghazi?

Be careful how you answer this one because the jury and some explosive evidence are still out there, and it all could well be brought to light in a few months.

Did or did not Hillary Clinton, by using an unsecured server and allowing Huma Abedin to email copies to her husband, Anthony Weiner, expose classified documents?

Was there collusion between the Obama administration and the IRS to disallow tax free status to conservative organizations?

If not, why did Lois Lerner plead the Fifth Amendment and retire with full benefits?

You see, sir, Pandora is neither a Democrat nor a Republican, and what is revealed in the coming months could well be a two-edged sword.

Be careful what you wish for.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops, our police and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America
