About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Is "stupid" tattooed on my forehead?

It must be.

I'm sitting here in a foul mood listening to my three toddlers who refuse to take their naps (the one year old just started singing) when there's a knock on the door.

There stands a nicely dressed young man, clipboard in hand, ready to pitch my signing up for another power company. He references three or four neighbors down the street as being new customers and lets me know I too can join the fun. I just need to provide some minor personal data such as my SSN, name, phone number, major credit card I have, etc.


He's also the third one to try this scam this year. When I ask for his city approved vendor's permit he tells me his boss has it and he'll provide said boss's number to me. Uh-huh. Why did that response not surprise me?

After sending him on his way I call the cops and let them know this jerk is in the area. They promise to check him out (they will, they're good at that).

Do I really look that stupid?

And my kids STILL won't go to sleep!
