In 1997, I bought a 1994 Chevy Astro Van. It is a conversion van with a lot of nice features. It was a comfortable vehicle to use on a family vacation to Virgina in '97. My parents, my brother, and my nephew drove up to Virginia, where my late aunt Sue joined us for the return trip. We've travelled to Colorado in it, and made several trips to visit my cousin in Midland.

But, it's time to buy a new car, and I am almost ready to make the commitment to four years of payments. I have paid off two credit cards, but I still have to pay off a couple more credit cards and a broken ankle. I think I've paid off all the other associated costs of my golfing injury (except the hospital stay--that will be around for a while). So I'm thinking that I'll be buying the car about this time next year.

I will start shopping around, looking for the best car for me, and recording my thoughts and experiences here. It won't be an every day thing, but maybe once every couple of weeks. I will still mock and criticize those who deserve it. Even myself.

Case Closed?

So John Kerr killed JonBenet Ramsey? If true, I am glad that the media trial of Patsy Ramsey, and that the media's leading prosecutor the National Enquirer just might be proven wrong. And I hope Jon Ramsey sues the bejesus out of them.

Even though this arrest seems to close the case of another pretty white girl being killed, I am curious about the timing of the whole thing. According to early reports, Kerr was arrested on an unrelated sex charge (which, according to a talking head on Nancy Grace on Headline News, "May or may not involve children." That's some sharp reporting there, Scooter!) and then he confessed to killing JonBenet Ramsey. Could he be lying to avoid Thai prison?

His ex-wife and father think so. They say he was fascinated by the Polly Klaas case and the JonBenet Ramsey case, and studied them. His ex-wife, Lara, has even said he was in Alabama when JonBenet was killed.

And then there's the ransom note. Why did Kerr leave a note demanding ransom after JonBenet was killed? To throw off suspicion?

I hope they finish the investigation soon.

And I hope Patsy Ramsey is in Heaven saying, "See! I told you I didn't do it!"

Political Hypocrisy

It's no secret that I find all politicians, Left and Right, to be hypocrites and criminals. The only way to get elected is to do everything for the folks with the deep pockets, and promise to do everthing for "the people who I represent."

Senator George Allen (R-Va) is a staunch pro-Life candidate and has spoken publicly against the so-called "morning after pill". But that doesn't stop him from making money off of it. Allen owns stock in Barr Laboratories, who make Plan-B, a "morning after pill". No sense in letting someone else get that money, after all.

In his planet-saving film, "An Inconvenient Truth," which Gore has admitted exagerates the case for Global Warming, has said that we only have ten years to act before the world will go "into a tailspin." Gore has been preaching cutting back on consumption. It's a brilliant idea from a man who owns three homes: One in Nashville; one in Alexandria, Virginia; and one in Carthage, Tennessee. Yet, none of those homes does Gore have his power companies supply him with wind energy, something the Bush Administration is putting into Federal buildings. (For the record, neither political power has either.) Gore owns stock in Occidental Petroleum, often under fire for drilling in environmentally sensative areas. And Gore's home in Carthage sits on top of a zinc mine, and he receives $20,000 a year from Pasminco Zinc, which has been cited for polluting a nearby river. Gore wants you and me to radically change how we live. Will he close the zinc mine under his third home? Will he sell his petro stocks? Don 't hold your breath.

It's politics as usual, folks. Everyone is busy grinding their axe, making as much money as they can in office. It is not restricted to one political party.

The Minutemen are falling down on the job. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the population of Chicago is 26% Hispanic. This is a huge failure on the Minutemen's part. They let brown skins in.

Here's a quote from their web page: "I truly believe if we aren't careful, they're going to take us all over and we're just going to be standing there thinking, 'What happened?'" the longtime Dodge City resident [Evelyn Fulton] said. . . peek below the surface, and some speak of a "reconquista," that is, some sort of reconquest of parts of the United States - vast stretches of which once were in Mexican hands - by illegal immigrants from south of the border.

The founder of the Minutemen, Jim Gilchrist, has written Minutemen: The Battle to Secure America's Borders, which is mis-titled. It should be Border, singular. The Minuteman project isn't interested in the Canadian border, which the 19 9/11 hijackers crossed. No. They're trying to prevent reconquista. And they may have more trouble preventing it than they know.

Hispanics continue to be the nations largest minority at 14.5% of the population. Blacks are 12.8% of the population. Hispanic, by the way, refers to anyone from Spanish-speaking countries of any race. Most Hispanics in the United States are white. When Gilchrist talks about the numbers of white people shrinking, he is referring to non-Hispanics only. In fact, English-speaking white people are minorities in 4 states: Hawaii, California, Texas and Florida. (Thank you, CNN.) Sounds like it won't be long that the Minutemen will be watching the Red River instead of the Rio Grande.

Yesterday, E! braodcast "E! True Hollywood Story: Mary Kay Letourneau". I want to know why.

Why is the American public so fascinated by this sexual predator, this child molester? Why do we continue to validate their relationship by watching it over and over and over? And, more importantly, why do we continue to arrest female teachers who rape their students? Apparently we think it's okay. Or at least, Denise McBryde, Julie Feil, Kimberly Merson, Tracie Mokry, Cameo Patch, and others, and even others do. Certainly, the media thinks it's okay. Why else would we have the Letourneau show on E!, or the innumerable TV movies on the crime.

All of these ladies' crimes just support my contention that female teachers should start wearing burkas. I find it appalling that a Christian country ignores the Bible in this way. (But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. -1 Timothy 2:12)

I don't know why everyone got so worked up over the disrupted terror plot in England. It was in England. Not here. Hell, we even found all those Egyptian students who went missing.

But I wasn't worried. The Minutemen and National Guard were patrolling the Mexican Border. Those two organizations are keeping the Hispanic terrorists out of our Great White Country! Once we have the Hispanics in line, the Arabs will see we don't tolerate anything from people with brown skin amd give up. Then America will be White again!


The reason I say that the Minutemen are their to protect the country from Hispanic terrorists and not to protect American jobs,a recent study has determined that increases in illegal immigration has no--let me repeat that with emphasis--NO impact on American unemployment nationwide. In fact, states with big immigration were as likely to have low unemployment rates and states with low immigration.

The only caveat is that employment for less-educated natives has declined, and their wages have declined because of competition with illegal immigrants. The solution? Make kids stay in school. Ha! Just kidding! Let them drop out! We'll seal the border!
