EZ Loader Trailer Project

Posted on

I’ve been working on the EZ Loader trailer that carries my Stratos 274 around. The trailer was pretty damned ugly when we got the boat and a couple thousand miles on the road hasn’t helped 🙁   The poor thing had one fender that was mostly missing, someone had literally chiseled about 3/4 of it out. One spring was […]

Oppose the Internet Blacklist Legislation

Posted on

Dear friend, I just emailed Congress to urge them to oppose the Internet Blacklist Legislation, known as the PROTECT-IP Act in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House. This legislation seeks to give the executive branch power to conduct slash-and-burn campaigns against websites that allegedly host – or even link […]

Gun Control

Posted on

IMHO— Restrict laws for law abiding citizens having licensed guns and you strengthen unlawful people with unlicensed guns. Think criminals get their guns licensed? Sit in the back of the bus dipstick… Think it’s guns that kill people, there again dipstick, sit in the back of the bus… People kill people…. Do you know the […]

How Ya Like Them Apples Boy?

Posted on

How ya like them apples boy? Ever hear that? I happen to really like that phrase and why not? When someone raises a stink about something and they get shot down, what’s better than sayin’ ‘How ya like them apples boy?’, LOL. I’m gonna elaborate more on this later but if you don’t get it, […]

Old Riverside, TX

Posted on

Riverside, TX is the closest thing that resembles a town to me so I thought I’d write a little about Good Old Riverside. The city limits signs read “Population 425” and I don’t expect that to change much anytime soon 😉 Riverside is perched on a bit of a bluff overlooking the Trinity River in […]

Kid Gets Suspended For An Opinion

Posted on

Teachers as a whole seem to have changed. They’ve gone from teaching to indoctrinating. They are a big part in this slow boiling pot that all us frogs are in. To steal a scene… ‘I want you to get up now… I want all of you to get up out of your chairs… I want […]

Solyndra- They Only Received $535M

Posted on

When asked to elaborate on the companies failure, the CEO & CFO of Solyndra ( a California based solar panel technology company) got a lot of mileage out of their “I plead the 5th” pie hole dribble… http://youtu.be/lx697_s14lI And more speech practice http://youtu.be/N6KkGQT1XlU Under the last president, Solyndra couldn’t get the funding they wanted. George […]

Sherrod Brown- Another Brilliant Politician

Posted on

Dateline September 6, 2011 Ohio State Senator Sherrod Brown releases his brilliant plan, sue companies that won’t hire you. Not based on the usual things like gender, race, creed, religion, sexual orientation… Nope, his idea is discrimination based on long term unemployment. Yup, if you been unemployed for a very long time, you can sue the […]

The Stratos is back!!!!!

Posted on

Picked up the Stratos today, repairs finished! Turns out poor Wesley Norman, of Norman’s Outboard Service, had medical problems and had to let his shop helper go. That set his schedule back a bit. Having the medical problems is bad enough but having to let the employee go because he was being a flake just […]

Kinda Irked…

Posted on

My favorite boat, a Stratos 274 bass boat, started having problems with the lower unit a few weeks ago. More to the point it was not fully engaging into reverse when shifted. The decision was made to take it into the shop, even though we are in the middle of the pre-spawn for bass, white […]
