Vacation Time

Posted Friday, June 25, 2010, at 10:07 AM

Some time ago, Bill O'Reilly suggested that the political rhetoric had become so heated, that perhaps it was time to tone down the intensity for a bit.

There is much at stake these days. Lots of people are out of work, problems abroad and at home, disaster here and crisis there.

I can certainly recognize that our leaders need our prayers much more than our criticism.

And it is hard to pray and criticize at the same time.

2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Anyone who has read the New Testament can see that Christ didn't give a hoot about politics, or government.

With some degree accuracy, I can sum up the Apostle Paul's view of politics and government. I think his advice was to pray and shut up.

Of course, that is hard to do.

Everyone needs a vacation, just like Obama right? I will boldly follow his example of relaxing in the midst of crises, and take time off.

In all sincerity, the President does needs our prayers. So do our troops, and those out of work or hurting.

So enjoy the Summer.

I believe Mr. Sam that the underhanded slam towards the president taking a vacation is perhaps out of place.

Good old "W" in total took over 900 days of vacation time away from the White House, during his 8 years as president. 487 days at Camp David and 490 days at the "ranch".

He also continued to play golf after he stated he had given up golf.

Also daddy Bush went fishing just days after the start of Desert Storm.

Just for the record.....

In all sincerity, the President does need our prayers...maybe he could actually get in gear and get something done about the Gulf. Maybe he could drop his moratorium so as to save all those oil jobs, at least. Maybe he could get the federal agencies to actually help out some instead of just standing in the way of the states.

The way it's gone so far, you have to wonder if our president is doing all he can to increase the damage in the Gulf in order to force his new energy taxes through. Just like a good Democrat...never waste a disaster if you can turn it into higher taxes!!

Definitely pray for him...and all his victims along the Gulf Coast!

Better review your maps rrw, McCook is in the Republican river valley. Idiot!

-- Posted by Chunky Peanut Butter on Sun, Jun 27, 2010, at 3:56 PM

In an attempt to be the smartest person on this blog, rrw fell flat on his face. Dullard.

-- Posted by Chunky Peanut Butter on Sun, Jun 27, 2010, at 6:22 PM

I merely pointed out rrw's inaccuracy in relation to McCook's geographical position. rrw was about miles off. So his attempt at humor missed it's mark. As you know, humor is at it's best when there is an element of truth to it, in his case, there was none. And how seriously should we take you, Mr OS2 in the era of Mac and Windows 7.

rrw,

I believe you are referring to the Hitchcock/Red Willow Irrigation District, to which the Culbertson Canal gets it's water from the Frenchman Creek. Meeker Canal, which flows to the south of McCook gets it's water from the Swanson Reservoir. So yes, I am familiar with the irrigation districts. Perhaps this is where your attempt at humor or sarcasm came from?

Frenchman Valley Coop (FVC) originated in Imperial Nebraska, somewhat of a distance from the Frenchman Creek, but oh well. Through a series of acquisitions and mergers, they gained Enders, Wauneta, Culbertson, Perry, and the McCook Equity Coop. The purchase of Wright Lorenz gave them Hamlet, Palisade, Beverly, and Culbertson. Maybe this is the source of your funny.

I do not enjoy calling people idiots, just you.

From Webster's Dictionary;

"Pronunciation: \ˈi-dÁ-ət\

Function: noun

Etymology: Middle English, from Anglo-French ydiote, from Latin idiota ignorant person, from Greek idiŰtÁs one in a private station, layman, ignorant person, from idios one's own, private; akin to Latin suus one's own -- more at suicide

Date: 14th century

1usually offensive : a person affected with extreme mental retardation

2 : a foolish or stupid person"

Seems to fit you, not your fiend, who seems a bit ignorant. Besides you didn't state that in your original post, so how was I to know. It seems more of an inside joke than common knowledge.

Well it's off to bed as I must wake up early and put in a full day at work to cover the slack of those who don't. Goodnight rrw.

Guillermo and Senior Loud,

I do not ever recall saying men rode on dinosaurs and myself having ever rode a dinosaur. Guillermo, how are your parents and what are they doing these days?

-- Posted by Chunky Peanut Butter on Mon, Jun 28, 2010, at 8:13 PM

Must be checking the archives for the correct answer.

-- Posted by orville on Wed, Jun 30, 2010, at 7:28 PM

It's unbelievable how you so called educated folks have such a potty mouth.You would think, you of all people would have gave that up in grade school...And we wonder what is wrong with America,you should of had your bottoms paddled,but no it was a time out for you of witch you never learned nothing or was it that your folks did everything for you.

-- Posted by orville on Thu, Jul 1, 2010, at 12:40 PM

You know Mr.Loud you don't need to talk about my folks that way,very uncalled for THANK YOU..

-- Posted by orville on Thu, Jul 1, 2010, at 1:07 PM

There is a day coming,it's called judgment day and I do believe you will be judged harshly Sir..

-- Posted by orville on Thu, Jul 1, 2010, at 1:13 PM

Yes Sir I am,I know that you know absolutely nothing.Everyone has sin at sometime in there life even you Mr Loud..

-- Posted by orville on Thu, Jul 1, 2010, at 1:30 PM

LOL..Your so funny,the day will come when you will need us under educated folks just to eat,you have no clue...LOL..

-- Posted by orville on Thu, Jul 1, 2010, at 1:39 PM

I can take anything you got Mr. Loud..

-- Posted by orville on Thu, Jul 1, 2010, at 1:41 PM

For one thing the government has been working on the food supply..Hybrid seeds can not reproduce a produce.Only people that has the old seeds will make it...Or pay out the ass....that is if they let you eat..

-- Posted by orville on Thu, Jul 1, 2010, at 1:48 PM

No farmers are not all uneducated..I said I'm uneducated but I'm not stupid either..they have been working on this for years the only thing they haven't got yet is wheat.So many farmers have seed wheat from years gone by they haven't pushed it out yet,but are trying to eliminate it..Sorry have to finish some other time my load is ready I have to go...I am serious about this...

-- Posted by orville on Thu, Jul 1, 2010, at 2:10 PM

Guillermo,

How are your parents, and what are they doing these days?

-- Posted by Chunky Peanut Butter on Thu, Jul 1, 2010, at 10:31 PM

Guillermo NEVER goes this long without a response!

-- Posted by Chunky Peanut Butter on Thu, Jul 1, 2010, at 10:46 PM

Mr. Loud don't misunderstand me please.The government and big business are going to control the food some day.They are making it to where you will have to get all of it from them.Do you know that farmers only get what the market will give them for their produce.That is controlled by the futures and speculators,the same as oil and gas..The government controls most of it..more later back to work for me..

-- Posted by orville on Fri, Jul 2, 2010, at 8:17 AM

Not so fast boys Sam will be back!!!!!!

-- Posted by orville on Fri, Jul 2, 2010, at 2:18 PM

You know Mr.Loud I wish I knew you personally so when the time comes I could laugh in your face..LOL.. You know the last laugh..Ha Ha..That would be so cool..

-- Posted by orville on Fri, Jul 2, 2010, at 2:34 PM

Guillermo,

It is good to hear your parents are well. I believe my Mother and Father were killed in Laos that fateful day in '75. As was my older Brother and older Sister. Of the six foster parents I lived with here in America, only one is still alive.

As I see your father must have risen from the dead, as you once stated, he died in America without health insurance, your mother must still be an ambassador to some unknown Latin American country.

-- Posted by Chunky Peanut Butter on Fri, Jul 2, 2010, at 7:20 PM

Yes, I know it must be a shock not being able to respond anytime during the day. I work.

-- Posted by Chunky Peanut Butter on Fri, Jul 2, 2010, at 10:01 PM

Holy cow! Your guys' dads died on that fateful day in Laos in '75 . So did mine, that is weird. It truly is a small world.

No, it wasn't Cadiz. And you did state your father died in America. So what is the truth today?

-- Posted by Chunky Peanut Butter on Sat, Jul 3, 2010, at 10:32 AM

My father died in Laos.

-- Posted by Platinumtoaster on Sat, Jul 3, 2010, at 10:54 AM

Guill,that explains a lot..Thank you..
