My late wife honestly.  For the longest time I felt lost…now it is a more frightening time…moving on without her.  I type this with tears flowing because an episode of 911 drove home this point for me.  Substitute the name Heather for Abby here and it is mostly accurate as to my feelings.  The thing about Heather that haunts me the most is the tiem I had to sign the DNR on her.  I then fell asleep…I had been awake for nearly 90 straight hours….but that is what haunts me..is signing her death warrant.  It was her time to go..it just doesn’t help me feel any better.  Me and Heather had some rough times…but I am a better man from her being here with me for the short time she was here.  I think the behind the scenes trigger was finally realizing the Kia is gone.  Yes I sold it and the vehicle is now in WVA getting the repairs it needs..but it never hit me as to what that meant.  She’s gone…and I am moving on…no matter how hard that is going to be.  She will always be a part of me…I will see her again once my time is done here.  Here is my haunting for this year’s Halloween:

 

Here is the song in the background:

I’ll use you as a warning sign
That if you talk enough sense then you’ll lose your mind
And I’ll use you as a focal point
So I don’t lose sight of what I want
And I’ve moved further than I thought I could
But I missed you more than I thought I would
And I’ll use you as a warning sign
That if you talk enough sense then you’ll lose your mind
And I found love where it wasn’t supposed to be
Right in front of me
Talk some sense to me
And I found love where it wasn’t supposed to be
Right in front of me
Talk some sense to me
And I’ll use you as a makeshift gauge
Of how much to give and how much to take
I’ll use you as a warning sign
That if you talk enough sense then you’ll lose your mind
And I found love where it wasn’t supposed to be
Right in front of me
Talk some sense to me
And I found love where it wasn’t supposed to be
Right in front of me
Talk some sense to me
Oh, and I found love where it wasn’t supposed to be
Right in front of me
Talk some sense to me
And I found love where it wasn’t supposed to be
Right in front of me
Talk some sense to me

Simply put,. I am an honorably discharged US Navy veteran.  As such I am afforded the honor of rendering the salute during the national anthem.

As per the US Code:

36 U.S. Code § 301 – National anthem

prev | next
(a)Designation.—

The composition consisting of the words and music known as the Star-Spangled Banner is the national anthem.
(b)Conduct During Playing.—During a rendition of the national anthem—

(1)when the flag is displayed—

(A)

individuals in uniform should give the military salute at the first note of the anthem and maintain that position until the last note;
(B)

members of the Armed Forces and veterans who are present but not in uniform may render the military salute in the manner provided for individuals in uniform; and
(C)

all other persons present should face the flag and stand at attention with their right hand over the heart, and men not in uniform, if applicable, should remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart; and
(2)

when the flag is not displayed, all present should face toward the music and act in the same manner they would if the flag were displayed.

The Saudis want to threaten us with price hikes. I hope they do try it..we can easily make up the difference as we have plenty of reserves…especially with ANWAR now open…but the Brakken oil field is not being touched much either…all we would have to do is cut off all of the exporting of energy we are doing..keep it all in country..and the Saudis will not bother us much at all.

Karl Denniger’s take is on his site.  I will reproduce it here as his posts sometimes disappear:

Heh KSA And All Salafists: **** YOU

In my opinion we’re well past the point where we should be putting up with the jackasses in the Middle East waving their oil wells around like giant penises that are theirs to use to **** anyone up the ass they wish.

Without a market for said oil Mr. Crown Prince will be riding a camel.  Should the US decide it’s had enough of KSAs bull**** and give the Saudis 24 hours to move all American-sold arms to a safe place before we will blow them up wherever they are the so-called “great Saudi military power” will turn into a ball of Saharan sand.We should have told the Saudis to go **** themselves and leveled a full embargo on them after 9/11.  After all the vast majority of the hijackers were Saudi nationals — that’s not supposition or rumor, it’s fact.  Then there’s the fact that the evil ********** Bush (then President) let several flights leave full of Saudis after 9/11 when our airspace was locked down.  Who were they and why?  We’ve never had that disclosed and we have a right to know.

It is a fact that Saudi Arabia has spread its Salafist bull**** through the Middle East and we’ve not only tolerated it we’ve called them “friends.”  Well, with friends that kill 3,000 of your citizens may I ask who the hell is supposed to be our enemy?

If, as it appears, they murdered a journalist because he said things the Crown Prince didn’t like then I suppose said Crown Prince has declared that if you don’t like what someone says you can murder them.  Those aren’t my standards, they are theirs.

Well now, perhaps a bounty is in order, since murder is now considered acceptable to the Saudi Crown.

The King (and his crown princes) must live under his own law or there is no law at all.  If it’s acceptable for Saudi’s Crown Prince to order up murders then it’s also acceptable for others to order up his murder.

Since no nation can call itself civilized if it subscribes to that crap the solution is obvious: They’re not civilized and thus they have no right to expect any sort of trade at all, nor any ability to travel here, nor to own anything in or made by this nation — including our funds, Treasuries and land.

Yes, we should be able to prove it first, of course.  Then again maybe the standard of proof could be similar to that the Saudis employ when it comes to how they view gays.

In fact I think using their standards ought to suit them just fine — right?

However, just to make sure they know we’re serious, let’s pass NOPEC right ****ing now After all 15 USC Chapter 1 is the law in our land, and just like KSA thinks they can have their laws no matter the consequences, even if it means their “monarchy” can murder people, well, that sauce works on the goose as well — so let’s cook theirs right now.

I recently bought a newsed(thanks to Chris K..I told him I was stealing this one)…Ford Escape./  I am VERY thankful to the Lord for giving me the means to purchase it and I have noticed something.  In terms of tidiness…i take MUCH better care of the truck than i ever did for my other two vehicles that I basically inherited.  I then came to a startling revelation.  I do not know when, how, or where….but it is time for me to leave the house I am currently living in.  Now i will just wait for the Lord’s guidance on where, when, and how this move is going to happen…and to start seriously preparing for it.
