Tex's Economic Stimulus Package


Since the war in Iraq costs about $8000 per second, and the population of the U.S. is about 305 million, I think that the U.S. should end the war about 305 million seconds early and give each U.S. citizen $8000.

Mommy my Cookie Tastes Funny

Let's say I work at a cookie company, my job is quality control. I noticed a guy (I'll call him B.S.) that I work with faking the results of tests, nothing harmful so I kept my mouth shut. (BTW B.S. is slightly higher up in Q.C. than I am) Then I notice him skipping a step in quality control that could be potentially dangerous to the customers. It made me mad, so I went to very high up in the company and told them what he was doing. They said bring us proof. Now that's a tall order but I tried and was able to bring them proof that B.S. had changed the results of my test (my tests showed that there was a problem) he changed them to make it look like everything was up to standards. They haven't done anything about it and B.S. continues to falsify test results. What should I do? I could go to the news, they would be very interested in what B.S. and the higher ups are doing but I would probably loose my job. I could go to a government enforcement agency but that is also risky. My higher ups even warned me that one of the dangers of doing that would be B.S., he is a very accomplished liar and might be able to convince them that it was all my fault somehow. Somethings got to give, I guess I'll wait until the next "company meeting" but if nothing is done, I'm going to do something. Any advice is welcome.

Military Remembers F-16s in Area Now

Several dozen witnesses reported that they had seen unusual lights in the sky near Stephenville shortly after dusk Jan. 8. One sighting included a report that the lights were pursued by military jets. Military officials had repeatedly denied they had any flights in the area that night.

UPDATE

Wednesday, Jan.23

"In the interest of public awareness, Air Force Reserve Command Public Affairs realized an error was made regarding the reported training activity of military aircraft. Ten F-16s from the 457th Fighter Squadron were performing training operations from 6 to 8 p.m., Tuesday January 8, 2008, in the Brownwood Military Operating Area (MOA), which includes the airspace above Erath County."

Maj. Karl Lewis, a spokesman for the 301st Fighter Wing at the former Carswell Field, blamed the erroneous release on "an internal communications error."

That still left unanswered the question of what F-16s might have been doing that would look like a line of silent, glowing spheres. Maj. Lewis said he could not give any details.

"What we do down there falls under operational procedures that cannot be released because of operations security for our mission," he said.

One battle tactic used routinely by F-16s involves the ejection of flares that are intended to confuse heat-seeking missiles. The flares can be ejected several at a time, and could form a pattern of bright lights traveling across the sky.

But such activity would not match other aspects of the descriptions of the Stephenville lights. Witnesses generally described what they saw as silent, apparently changing speeds and passing over populated areas. That does not sound like a flare release, said Jay Miller, an aviation consultant and historian in Fort Worth.

For one thing, any jet that dumps flares would also be trying to get away as fast as possible.

"He's going to be in full afterburner," Mr. Miller said, and that's very loud. But the jets wouldn't be the only noise associated with flares.

"Flares don't burn silently. They actually burn quite loudly," he said.

Flares are also extremely hot and dangerous, and it's highly unlikely that any drill would involve their use over populated areas, Mr. Miller said.

Wednesday's news release refocused attention on the lights a few days after more than 500 people attended a meeting intended to gather witness statements. The weekend meeting was hosted by the Mutual UFO Network, which collected more than 200 reports, though many were not about the recent sightings.

The military's admission that it had jets up in the area actually strengthens the credibility of some of the reports, said Ken Cherry, Texas state director for the network. After all, some of the witnesses had said they had seen military aircraft along with the lights.

"We have witnesses who could clearly distinguish the difference between an F-16 and some extraordinary craft performing in a manner not typical of an aircraft," he said.

Steve Allen, a pilot, was one of three men who first went public with their sightings to the local newspaper. Wednesday's military news release answers none of his questions, he said.

The Brownwood Military Operating Area is not close enough to Stephenville to explain what he saw, Mr. Allen said. And pilots are supposed to perform training exercises at high altitude, he said. What he saw happened near the ground.

He said he and his friends first spotted a row of glowing spheres that silently changed formation before vanishing. A few minutes later, they saw two more glowing spheres, with military jets in hot pursuit.

"They were on the deck and with the pedal down," he said.

Mr. Allen said that he had no trouble hearing the roar from the jets when they appeared, but he had heard nothing from the glowing lights before that.

"A bunch of stuff is bubbling up," he said about Wednesday's news release. "They may have to tell us the truth."

To use them, you'll need to go with a prescription in hand, get fingerprinted and get a prepaid credit card that's loaded up with your dosage and what strain of weed you want. Yeah, no joke, the pharmacists in LA give you a choice between OG Kush and Granddaddy Purple.

Bush Economic Plan


President Bush, acknowledging the risk of recession, came up with a plan to save the economy. "Recent breakthroughs in technology can be used to make my plan possible."
"We will go back in time to the first day of my administration, when our country was at peace and the budget was balanced."

Even the UFOs are Bigger in Texas

Stephenville, Texas, UFO sighting: Dozens of Texans claim to have seen a UFO over the skies of the state. These people, who include a pilot, county constable and several business owners, say that they say a large, silent object flying in the skies over Stephensville, Texas. Many also claim that they saw fighter jets chasing the object.

"People wonder what in the world it is because this is the Bible Belt, and everyone is afraid it's the end of times," said Steve Allen, a freight company owner and pilot. "It was positively, absolutely nothing from these parts."

Of course the federal government has come out with several other possible explanations for what some claim to have seen. These explanations include the playing of light off of an airplane and other things of that nature.

The Air Force has said that no unidentified flying objects were seen on their radar at any time during the night when people claim to have seen one. The Air Force has also said that none of their planes from either of the two Air Force bases in the region were in the air over Stephensville, Texas at the time of the sightings.

Even with this information, many people claim that what they saw was traveling too low, too fast and too large to be any commercial jetliner and they insist that what they saw was not of this world.

Erath Couty Constable Lee Roy Gaitan is one of those who isn't convinced by what the government has to say.

"I didn't see a flying saucer and I don't know what it was, but it wasn't an airplane, and I've never seen anything like it," Gaitan said. "I think it must be some kind of military craft - at least I hope it was."

Trying to get to the bottom of this matter, one man has offered a reward for anyone who has a picture or videotape with the object that was seen that night on it.

There are over 200 UFO sightings reported every month and most of these sightings occur California, Colorado and Texas, according to the Mutual UFO Network.

The Stephensville sightings bring to mind some famous UFO sightings, including the Mexico City sighting, the Gulf Breeze sightings and of course the famous Roswell incident.

Ask Your Doctor if Marijuana is Right For You

Drunk Republican?

100,000 rupees Nano

The Nano, a little car that is only 10.17 feet long, 59 inches wide and 63 inches high "but can comfortably fit four passengers in keeping with its goal of appealing to families." The new automobile, unveiled yesterday at the Auto Expo 2008 trade show in New Delhi by Indian car-maker Tata Motors Limited, features a "two-cylinder, 623cc engine [that] sits at the rear of the vehicle, allowing for a flat, streamlined hood and windshield. The Nano can reach a top speed of 105 [kilometers per hour, or about 65 miles per hour], more than double the average road speed in India."

I may be turning into a conspiracy nut. I keep most of that stuff on dale alvin gribble so that it doesn't overwhelm this blog.
I'll tell you some of the problems I have with 9-11 but don't have room here, I'll revise this post.

7:40 PM
Military exercises on that day that removed air defences from the area.
The way the buildings fell, including bld 7 that wasn't hit with a plane. Fire fighters said on the radio, two lines would put out the fire in bld 7. Billionaire owner stated "There had been enough death that day so it was decided to PULL bld 7." PULL is a demolition term meaning blow it up, in a controlled manor. It takes days or weeks to place the explosives for a PULL. Therefore bld 7 had been pre-wired with explosive starting at least several days before, probably more. Some firefighters noticed that the towers were blown floor by floor. Billionaire dude had the insurance policy changed to include acts of terror shortly before 9-11.

[It has also been suggested that Larry Silverstein, the owner of the World Trade Center, may have benefited from the insurance payouts. Silverstein purchased a 99-year lease on the complex in July 2001. Following the attacks, he sought a $7.1billion payout, claiming that the two plane impacts were two separate attacks.[143][144] The World Trade Center also contained a large amount of asbestos that was required to be removed; some claim that the cost of carrying out this task would have been in excess of $1 billion. It has also been claimed that the office space within the building was unprofitable and the area was in need of urban renewal.]

The "Man on the street interview" .
The tiny hole in the pentagon, the same thing that brought down three or two huge buildings didn't even destroy books, chairs, computers right next to it. the lack of video tapes at the highly secured pentagon. No wreckage, well the only wreckage was carried out under a tarp by some guys.
The flight in Pennsylvania that just left a little tiny round hole in the ground, again no real wreckage.
That's just what I can remember off of the top of my head.

I Found a Marble

In the backyard
I found a marble
that the dog unearthed

I wondered what child
how long ago
last played with it
I'd like to know

was it 1920?
when this house was new?
1940 or 52?

was the kid nice
or a brat?
skinny and tall
or fat?

I think I'll keep it
but before I go
I'll put it back
don't you know?

My Imaginary E-TAGGER

This might sound far fetched but technology is moving very quickly.

Lets say you're driving along and the car in front of you suddenly stops to turn, no signal and you have to brake hard not to hit him. Use to be there wasn't much you could do about it other than call him a few bad names.
But now you can TAG him electronically. There could be different degrees like from minor danger to extreme danger. What good would that do? When a cop pulls you over he could run your E-TAGS. This could help them to decide to give you a ticket or let you off with a warning. I guess e-taggers would have to have some kind of I.D. associated with the car it came from. To prevent you from repeatedly tagging someone you don't likes car. Since it would be completely up to the individual whether or not to E-TAG, that shouldn't be a problem.

This would also give you a good excuse to not let people borrow your car.

THE AMENDMENT THAT WASN'T

Section 1.
After one year from the ratification of this article the manufacture, sale, or transportation of marijuana, the importation thereof into, or the exportation thereof from the United States and all territory subject to the jurisdiction thereof for recreational or medical purposes is hereby prohibited.

Section 2.
The Congress and the several States shall have concurrent power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

Section 3.
This article shall be inoperative unless it shall have been ratified as an amendment to the Constitution by the legislatures of the several States, as provided in the Constitution, within seven years from the date of the submission hereof to the States by the Congress.




Seems like this amendment would have had to been ratified before they started arresting people for marijuana but unfortunately, I 'm just a simpleminded hick with no law schooling.

Fast Thoughts

Sometimes my mind starts racing with thoughts. I was reading about yeast for beer making and got sidetracked as it is so easy to do on the web. People with diabetes are more likely to get yeast infections, yeast need sugar, they produce alcohol and carbon dioxide.
Could a person get drunk if he had enough yeast and sugar in his bloodstream?

Could a yeast infection cause a carbon dioxide blood test to show a false high reading?

Could a certain kind of yeast be put in the bloodstream of a diabetic to control high levels of sugar?

Only One


I just had one can of beer last night, trying to cut back.
