             Howdy friends and neighbors.  My four-year-old son just inherited about another $1.5 TRILLION dollars in debt.  Thanks to the elite leaders of this nation, the “fix it” generation just got another big piece of bacon to eat.  I don’t care what your politics are, the fact is that congress and the administration just crammed a 1500 page “boar’s nest” bill down our throats.  From this point on that is my new name for the White House, Senate, and House chambers, “The Boar’s nest.”  I assume that by the time this hits the streets that one hundred dollar bills will start falling from the sky and good times will be here to stay.

            Howdy friends and neighbors.  I would like to take this chance to write about my little opening statement, “friends and neighbors.”  I like the fact that I’m watching less television nowadays but the Hollywood message still seems to creep in through the many media outlets that I’m subject to just in passing.  One message that I get so tired of hearing on television and radio is how we, that live in the “fly over” country are so backwards and unsophisticated.  I guess the left and right coast have to put down the central plains so they can have something to stand on.  Here is my take.

Howdy friends and neighbors.  Wow!  What a football game.  Good hard hitting, 60 minute fight to the end, smash mouth football.

 

As I sit down here at my keyboard mulling over all of the stuff that has happened this past week, from a winter blast to a trillion dollar government bill to a football game, I think what hit me the hardest this week were the stories I had the privilege to hear Sunday morning at church.  Last month, a mission team from western Oklahoma went to Bangladesh and they shared their report.  I’m not an expert on the country of Bangladesh though I hear it is densely populated and very poor.  As I heard the stories of the people that live there and the hopelessness that they live with, I wonder why it is that I was so lucky to be born here in the United States of America.  The similarity that I heard in all the stories was the reason the people of Bangladesh have so little is because of an oppressive government.  If a farmer improves his allotment of land and makes a productive farm through ideas and hard work, the government will take it away and give it to those who are more favorable to the government.  Thus, they simply have no hope for a better life.  School is an absolute privilege and one miss step and the kids are kicked out.

Howdy friends and neighbors.   It seems our beloved ag-media just won’t let this rumor of a “cow tax” go.  Thus, I guess I will follow suit.  Anyway, the “cow tax” is this hyped story of the EPA assessing a huge per head greenhouse gas tax on each bovine as if that would somehow miraculously cure the made up myth of global warming.  In my worthless opinion, only the United States Congress and administration could come up with that kind male bovine excrement and view it as good policy!
