Election 2010 Has Begun

Well boys and girls the 2010 campaign has begun.

Last night I was coming home from picking up something at the store for dinner when a political commercial came on the radio.

I didn't catch the guy's name but it was for District 12 NC House [ William Wainwright's seat]. I think it is the same guy that just ran against Wainwright and lost.

First he said all of our financial problems was the fault of the democrats. Then they played some tropical music and said that Bev Purdue was on vacation and then gave her office phone number and asked people to call and tell her to get back to work cutting taxes and spending.

I see a trend developing from local radio, to talk radio, all the way to Fox noise.
TELL THE BIG LIE, tell it early, tell it often. Then repeat.

This from the party that ran on the slogan,


Keep up the pressure

I wanted to drop a short note to all of you before I left.
I had to close my boatbuilding business in mid June because of the $4.00 gas and problems our custormers were facing getting construction financing on custom boats.

Since that time, I have been looking for a job.I spent the first 20 years of my working life in the charter fishing and diving business out of Morehead City.
I will now returning to sea, running a 120ft Oil rig crew and supply boat out of Camaron, La.

I will find out tommorow when I ship out,but it will be either Thursday or Friday.

I am very lucky to have found a command, with good pay and benefits in the present economy. If feel blessed that I can go back to work at a time so many can't find a job that will support their families.

The Wit and Wisdom of Winston Churchill

A fine study of politics and government from the great man of which it was said;
"He was half American and all British"

You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.

You can always count on Americans to do the right thing-after they have tried everything else

When I am abroad, I always make it a rule never to criticize or attack the government of my own country. I make up for lost time when I come home.

We do not covet anything from any nation except their respect

We shall show mercy, but we shall not ask for it.

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

We are stripped bare by the curse of plenty

We are all worms. But I believe that I am a glow-worm.
