Friday Morning around the Compound...............
Since I don't have a work schedule anymore I've been getting up pretty early and just kicking around the "GrumpyUnk Command and Control Center" in the mornings.
I still don't seem to be able to get much done yet. Not so much because of the weight limitations on lifting, but more a response to taking the pain meds.

Yep, they work well and and I'm not laying around crying in pain. The problem is just about the time you quit hurting and decide to something, The Brain goes on hold and any enthusiasm you had says, "Hey. I'm going out for smokes. I'll be back in about 4-5 hours.

Damn things make you lazy and stupid.

The good news is that I'm healing up real well and shouldn't need them much longer. Yay Me!

Here's a couple of Items found on the web this morning for ya to check out.

Apparently, everything in the USA is just fine & dandy and we have nothing that needs fixing here so we have time to worry about-
The Obama Administration's Bold but Risky Plan to Make Africa Gay-Friendly

Am I missing something here, but aren't there a bunch of wars, poor people and starving kids in Africa that might deserve a bit more attention than Gay Rights? Who the hell comes up with the priority list at the State Dept?

I've mentioned this problem before. Looks like it's not gonna be getting better anytime soon-
CDC: 'Superbug' transmitted outside hospitals

"Many patients infected by the deadly superbug Clostridium difficile, long thought to be contracted mainly during hospital stays, are already exposed when they are admitted to the hospital, U.S. infectious disease experts said on Tuesday.

Rates of C. difficile, the most common hospital-based infection in the United States, continue to climb. The infection can cause severe diarrhea, inflammation and bleeding in the colon, and death."

C Diff is one Nasty Ass Infection and is just one of several that could use our attention more than worrying about a Gay-Friendly Africa.

Mark Potok, of the Southern Poverty Law Center is sounding the alarm about the "Explosive Growth" of Militias in the USA.


If all the Militias formed and grew at the rate he's been claiming for so many years now everyone would be wearing Cammo and carrying Evil Black Rifles everywhere.

Apparently he got some help writing this-
Potok Claims ‘Explosive Growth’ Of Militias

"As is noted at the bottom of this post at MSNBC: "The Murrow News Service is [sic] provides local, regional and statewide stories reported and written by journalism students at the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication at Washington State University."

In other words, MSNBC is now resorting to "journalism students" to re-write Mark Potok’s press releases from his one man band, the Southern Poverty Law Center."

Ya wouldn't think he'd need any help on writing this stuff, since it's basically the ONLY thing he's written about for the last 15 years.
The real shame is that the FBI, DHS, TSA, ATF and a bunch of other Federal agencies have a very close relationship with the SPLC and apparently believe his Bullshit.

Yesterday, Obama and the Senate Democrats once again show their dedication to screwing the rest of us and killing jobs-

Senate rejects Keystone in 56-42 vote

"The Senate has rejected a GOP plan to approve construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline after President Obama made personal calls to Democrats urging them to oppose it."

One can argue about the motivation and reasons why these people continue to use every tool at their disposal to weaken the nation energy wise, but it certainly can't be argued that it's not deliberate anymore.

Gratuitous Picture for a Friday Morning-
