Today I had to go into town today but stopped for gas because I thought I might run out.

Gas is usually about a dime more in the county. When I started pumping the gas at 2.59 a gallon, I saw a man about my age in the 80s at a near by pump. I smiled at him and nodded.
He said gas will be $4.00 a gallon in two weeks.
I said, "I had not heard that."
Then he said Biden ordered it.
I said "I had not heard that."
Then he said Biden has stock in the gas companies.
I said "I had not heard that."
When I got to town Walmart gas was $2.49 a gallon.
Something tells me he was a MAGA. LOL

Got my booster today and asked for a flu shot too but...

...I was told I should wait until late this month or early next month for the flu shot as the flu shot doesn't last as long and if I had it today, I could still get the flu later. I wasn't aware of that so I will wait till then.

This would make Trumps pucker string go loose.

I wish someone would record just the chorus of Jonnie Cash’s Ring of fire and play it on a loud speaker every time Trump is near. I think that would be a good message for him to hear over and over and he would get the point.

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down
And the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns
The ring of fire
The ring of fire

Can anyone help me find this?

Earlier today I saw a picture on Democrat Underground of Trump with Melania Trump standing behind him with her eyes open really wide and the comment that she just realized she would be buried on a golf course too.
I looked for it this afternoon and couldn't find it. If anyone can help me locate it- Thanks!

Here is one reason we have high gas prices.

BP claimed they made a $3.1 Billion profit in first quarter of 2021.
They are claiming $9.3 Billion in profits the same time period first quarter of 2022.


Here is how my wife and I voted in the Georgia Primary. Some may disagree.

If there were several races having women running for the same office. We always voted for a woman that was an incumbent. If one race had multiple women, we would look at the names and if one sounded foreign, we voted for that one. We believe that one possibly may better understand how important a democracy is from their own experience.

If Supreme Court Justices can decide cases based on their Christian religion perhaps...

... it should be expanded to include Justices of all religions. The list of unrepresented religions is very large but shouldn't they also have a vote if we allow Christians that privilege? By the way, I was raised as a Christian.

If Georgia legal system can do this, why can't Jan 6th rioters be sentenced like this?

Taken from Macon Telegraph on 9 March 2022. This is a great news paper and I read it cover to cover every morning.
"A 31 year old man accused of blowing his coronavirus relief loan on a Pokemon card will spend the next three years in prison after he pleaded guilty to felony fraud charges in Georgia. Vinath Oudomsim was sentenced to three years in prison followed by three years of supervised release, the US Attorneys Office for the Southern District of Georgia said in a news release on Monday March 7. He was also ordered to pay $85,000 in restitution-the total value of the Economic Injury Disaster Loan he received as part of the alleged scheme..."
Apparently the Pokemon card he bought has sold in the past for as much as $369,000

I don't remember if I saw it here or elsewhere. Anyone know where I can find it?

It was a photo of a Capital Policeman with his gun drawn and pointed with a member of congress cowering behind him with one hand up and looking like he is terrified. He is also a congressman who now claims it was just peaceful visitors during the Jan 6th assault. I don't remember his name either. I meant to go back to it but got busy for a couple of days and then couldn't find it.

I could not believe many of the comments I received earlier today about General Flynn.

So I sent the following letter to the current, Joint Chief of Staff General Mark A. Milley.

I am a retired 20 year active duty military veteran who also served another 21 years in Civil Service Acquisitioning of the latest military weapon systems and support equipment, traveling all over the world to introduce field personnel to the latest hardware and software. I have also served as a a witness in the court martial of a Technical Sargent under my supervision for simply not returning his wife' phone calls, for which charges were fortunately dropped.
For as long as I can remember, the military has routinely recalled retired personnel for court martial for various actions they took while on active duty. In most cases, it is enlisted men and rarely an officer.
General Michael Flynn committed treason while on active duty and again since his retirement. I fail to see why he is not recalled and court martialed as an enlisted man would be.
Very Respectfully yours.
