The Mouse Trap Parable

This is from a e-mail I received this morning;

A mouse looked through a crack in the wall to see the farmer and his wife opening a package; what food might it contain? He was aghast to discover that it was a mouse trap! Retreating to the farmyard, the mouse proclaimed the warning, "There is a mouse trap in the house, there is a mouse trap in the house. " Chicken clucked, and scrached, raised her head, and said, "Mr. Mouse, I can tell you this is of grave concern to you, but it is of no consequence to me; I can not be bothered with it." The mouse turned to the pig and told him, There is a mouse trap in the house." "I am so sorry Mr. Mouse," sympathized the pig, "but there is nothing I can do about it but prey; be assured that you are in my prayers." The mouse turned to the cow, who replied, "Like wow, Mr. Mouse, a mouse trap; am I in grave danger, Duh?" So the mouse returned to the house, head down, and dejectedto facethe farmers mouse trap alone. That night a sound was heard thought the house,like the sound of a mouse trap catching its prey. The farmers wife rushed to see what was caught. In the darkness, she did not see that it was a venomous snake whose tail the trap had caught. The snake bite the farmers wife. The farmer rushed her to the hospital. She returned home with a fever. Now everyone knows that you treat a fever with fresh chicken soup, so the farmer took his hatchet to the farmyard for the soups main ingredient. His wifes sickness continued so that friends and neighbors came to sit with her around the clock. To feed them the farmer butchered the pig. The farmers wife did not get well, in fact, she died, and so many people came for her funeral the farmer had the cow slaughtered to provide meat for them all to eat. So the next time you hear that someone is facing a problem and think it does not concern you, remember that when the least of us is threatened, we are all at risk.
Still wondering if you are your brother's keeper?

Public opinion means nothing?

Last night Bush wasted the American publics time by giving a press conference to try to prop up his sagging poll numbers. This was nothing more than a propaganda ploy to spread more lies about his attempt to dismantle the most successful social program in the history of the world. Bush's' poll numbers are the lowest of any second term president...Ever! During this mis-information appearance the Bush Mafios main goal was to raise public support and divert attension from the condition of the country. But the thing that really got to Maddog and myself was his saying that following public opinion polls was like a dog chasing its tail. First we would like to know if he has first hand information on what it is like to chase your tail and second is he a tail chaser. The publics will does matter Mr. President. And what's more Maddog has some advice on tail chasing. He says to let you know " when chasing ones tail you are to stop before you stick you head up your A....."

Somewhere in Texas a village is missing its idiot! Posted by Hello

Sunday is for worship

On this cold Sunday morning the dog and I are about to take a stroll to enjoy this amazing planet we live on. Whatever you believe about the creation of the universe, our little part is truly a wonder. There is something special about Sundays. Maybe it is because people sleep in and the hustle and bustle of daily life is put off for awhile. On this Sunday there will be a new voice coming from many churches in this country. It will be the voice of the republican leader of the U.S. senate. The self appointed Rev. Billy Bob Frist. It seems that the "CAT KILLER FROM TENN." has decided to take his and the republican majorities attack on the three part government system set up by the founding fathers to the pulpit. Today they will be broadcasting their attack on the people who are appointed to the judicial branch of our government. This is part two in their attempt at creating a one party system. Part one being the attempt to end the senate filibuster. Make no mistake, these people want a dictatorship in this country! The president himself said " It would be much easier to rule if this was a dictatorship ( in this country)." And it seems the neo-conservatives in government are trying to do just that. Their message will be "If you disagree with us you are against all people of faith." Really ? With this logic they must be trying to say that the pope,who disagreed with the president on the war in Iraq, is against all people of faith. Nonsense to be sure but many will be swayed by this convoluted logic. The Arab world must be thrilled to see the U.S. coming around to their way of thinking. They call their dictatorship a theocracy and now we are taking politics to the pulpit just like them. And we call them religious extremist.

Senate to Investigate DeLay ...Right!

Dateline : The North Coast;

The Senate republicans held a news conference to announce that they were now " willing to look into the un-ethical and illegal conduct of Tom DeLay." The little man from Texas has been acting as if the federal government was his own personal corporation and he's above the law. The future head of pest control for Leavenworth prison, and leader of the attact on the two party system of government, has been seen hanging out with armed thugs in Texas saying how good it feels to have alot of people with guns around him (The NRA). When he is not pretending to represent to the people of Suger Land,Texas, he has been trying to instigate attacts on the federal judges .
Well, on the surface this call for as investigation of Mr. DeLay would seem like a step in the right direction if not for the fact that under pressure from "The Slammer" the ethics panal has changed the rules that now say if no violations are found in 45 days the whole matter will be dropped. So after 45 days of investigating 10 years of unethical and illegal conduct and no charges being filed against him Tom gets to declare victory and walk away scott free. After removing members of the ethics panal (republicans) that had already called him on the carpet and replacing them with members he has funneled thousands of dollars into their re-election campaigns the outcome of this "investigation" is a joke. It would be laughable but the joke is on us and nobody should be laughing.

DeLay Rap Sheet

On Sunday mornings Mad Dog and I like to take an early walk . We enjoy catching the animals scurrying to their boroughs. The early bird getting the worm. But we especially like to watch the scared rabbits run. Following is a list of what is making a Texas cock roach killer run; Casino scandal Senate Investigation, republican pharmaceutical industry, Medicare Vote Ethics, West Star,World "Golfing for Dollars Tour", "K" Street, Abuse of FAA Ethics admonishment, just to name a few. Mr. Delay is scheduled to speak at an ethics conference.

As I was walking the Mad Dog this morning I was struck by the similarities between myself and the majority party in Washington. I get to drive the gas gluping SUV, be my own boss, you know, play the big shot. Makes my feel real important. So after the dog is done doing his bushiness (or as he likes to call it " lobbying the house " ) he turns to me and gives me that "well, are you going to carry my sh..(agenda) or just stand there with that fox in the news house grin. Knowing that if I don't do as he "wishes" he will probably bite me or something, I dutifully get down on my knees scoop up his donation. Now I know I could get a minimum wage worker to do this for me or even an illegal alien but you know what would happen. Mad Dog and the new dog walker would get together, cut a deal, and poof I would be back in Texas spraying for cock roaches.

MAD DOG Posted by Hello

Bad dog Posted by Hello


Well, now that I have created this page I must now come up with something to say. Let me check with the Mad Dog.........., Ok, he says to shut-up and put some food in his bowl or he is going to squat on the rug. I guess I'm on my own for now. Lazy dog! Well, here's one he told me yesterday. It seems the Tom "in the Slammer" DeLay has been calling the Mad Dog for advice on how to deal with his ethical lapses of late. The press has been having a field day because Tom's been flying around the world playing golf and raffling off legisation to the highest bidder. If that wasn't enough to handle, there is this prosecuter down in big "T" who has indited all of Toms' friends. He even says he has evidence that " the Slammer" was envolved in shaking down corporations for donation and then funneling the money back to like mindless confederates so stack the Texas statehouse. So here is what MD came up with,he says Tom start barking about how those evil Democrates are all out to get you. Tell them that everbody does it. Tell anyone who is still taking you serious that the dog ate your homework. And if all else fails, squat on the rug.
