Oopsy

Going East on US 26 entering Mitchell, NE you go around a sweeping left hand turn, unless you are in a large truck and don’t make the curve. Then you drive thru a building and damage several used tractors.




 Per the other driver on my route who passed by soon after the accident, the truck engine was lying  in the street. Things like this keep my sister employed.

Past posts mentioned Wild Hawgs. Guess you can’t start them too early.

Of course, you need a connection to the essential Harley accessory.

Recently I posted a blog on our local police.


This was on the car I thought to be stolen today. Someone has been driving it and stashing it back on my employers parking lot.


Nope, I don’t know what I’m talking about.

The PoPo still haven’t  investigated.

Missed Lunch

Gaggle of Wild Hawgs infesting my favorite lunch place. My schedule doesn't allow for much standing in line. This particular group was Norwegian. Rude, they were. Passed on lunch.

This little store in Kimbal, NE has a super clean kitchen. The food isn't that great but is edible and I'm not worried about getting sick eating it. Appears to be family owned and they are the usual friendly Nebraska folks.

Some nice trophy bucks for someone this hunting season.

Money As A Weapon and More

At the very start, this isn’t original thinking on my part. Not seeing much on current forums, maybe it is time to bring it up again.

Due to oil revenue, many Islamic countries are awash in money. In particular, Saudi Arabia has funded, and continues to fund, terrorism. Think 9/11.

Our country has a large number of venal politicians. The Clintons, in particular, have become extremely wealthy from donations to their "charities".

Barack Obama when he first ran for office was able to raise huge sums from many, many “small” donations, small enough that individual donors didn’t need to be identified by law.

The Executive Branch is now filled at all levels with Muslims, up to and including the head of the CIA. The CIA? WTF?

Maybe the answer to why so many things are going wrong in our country is the result of a ruthless and ongoing attack against us by Saudi Arabia and others using petrodollars to undermine and weaken us. Probably others (George Soros comes to mind) have the same goal. Are they working together?

What to do? Facilitate a regime change in Saudi Arabia?

Elect a President that hasn’t been bought by oil money?

For damn sure, Shillary will sell every asset we have to further her and Bill’s wealth IMO. YMMV

Decided to add this. Came to me as an email.

Subj: Ponder this!!
 

Subject: If you don't have enough to worry about - ponder this
-- Here’s a very scary thought………….. 
 
I had to take my vehicle to the mechanic the other day for service.  The Service Manager, Pete, gave me a ride home and on the way he told me his theory about the upcoming election and the next four years of U.S. government.  At first I thought it a bit far fetched. But as I listened to him it began to make sense, scary sense…
 
“I believe that Hillary Clinton will win the election in November,” Pete began.   “Then, sometime between November and January, Hillary will be indicted.  The IRS is now investigating the Clinton Foundation and the whole e-mail thing isn’t over yet. ”“Once under indictment she won’t be able to assume the Office of the President in January.  Tim Kaine, who will not actually be the Vice President because neither he nor Hillary have been inaugurated, cannot assume the Presidency.” “The Speaker of the House can’t move up to it because there is already a sitting President and Vice President.  So President Obama, in an Executive Order citing “emergency situation,” gives himself another four years in office is the only way possible.”
 
Pete believes Obama has been planning this for a while now, knowing he has enough on Hillary to indict her. Had the Attorney General indicted her based on evidence from the FBI this plan wouldn’t have worked because the DNC would have quickly come up with another candidateIf you think about it, it’s not that outrageous.  Many people on the left, including the President, want Obama to stay another four years. The law prohibits him from being re-elected so the only ways he can do it is by declaring martial law and suspending the election (which would be a very negative thing for the country) or to declare himself still President because the elected candidate cannot assume her duties. The latter makes more sense and is actually more feasible.  And since it’s never been done before, it would set a precedent that would be difficult to challenge. Of course, if Trump wins the election none of this is going to happen.  But what if Pete is correct?  Four more years of Obama and a mostly useless Republican House and Senate would give Obama the time he needs to continue destroying changing the country to fit his stated goals.  I thanked Pete for the ride home – and for messing up my day.  Now I’ve got more things to worry about!

Self Defense Concealed Carry

Disclaimer. Yes, I’m a dirty old man. Get over it.

At the Post Office picking up mail. People watching. Young lady parked and got out of her car. Black low riding jeans, studded belt, and snug black shirt. Maybe 5’ tall. Maybe 90 lbs. She walked with an air of complete confidence and purpose.

Inside the Post Office she went to her box which is within five feet of mine. Took her mail to the counter. In  flash, from out of nowhere, she had a 3” blade folding knife, opened with one hand, and proceeded to slit open envelopes.  She was so quick and smooth spec warriors would be impressed.


It occurred to me her air of competence and confidence was because she knew she could defend herself. I find that a great thing.

Wild Hawgs and Such

Just when one hazard of the job tapers off, we get another, the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

For the past six weeks or so the harvesting crews have been active. A convoy of one or more huge over wide combines on trailers, each followed by a truck pulling the harvester head, some 30’ wide, on another trailer. Several grain haulers, truck and 53’ trailer, followed by one of more RV’s, and miscellaneous vehicles moving from field to field. They can be difficult to pass.

Add the traffic going to and from Sturgis, SD, and the drive can be interesting.


One can admire those who make the trip all the way on motorcycles. Less so those pulling their motorcycles on trailers, and there are probably more of those than the riders. Posers.


A wet winter and spring is a blessing but……… Now a hot summer has arrived and the prairie is drying out just in time for the monsoon season. 



Those thunderstorms produce a narrow, but intense,  path of moisture while the lightning goes everywhere. Lots of work for the fire crews. Lots of flash floods to trap the unwary. The Platte at Gurnsey is at near flood stage and the water muddy.
