work has slowed to a crawl.

Well the company I work for has slowed to a crawl. We have went down to four days a week, Luckily I am salary so My pay won't be affected yet. That is not to say I couldn't be laid off. The global economy is so bad manufacturing doesn't have a chance right now. I work in a foundry . We make cast Iron parts for electric motors, water pumps , and many other parts. The cast metal industry in this country is in serious trouble due in part to the over seas market . China has dominated this industry because they charge alot less for the parts . But the quality is not there. They do not have to worry about environmental groups or safety regulations. And most chinese foundries are government owned. The stimulus package will not save this country , But what might is companies stay in this country instead of relocating over seas. The united states start buying and selling within itself instead of importing crap that we could make ourselves.Cars, radios, clothes, rubber dog shit the list goes on and on. This country needs to start taking care of ourselves instead of worrying about pissing off our nieghbors. The homeless rates in this country keep climbing higher and higher but yet you see the christians childrens fund or other charities want you to send money to little bow mow in bangledesh or somewhere, I say screw them for now fix ours first before we mess around in other countries back yards. They don't give a shit about us anyway most of em want us dead.I am not preaching hate in this post , not at all But I believe this country could be great again if We start looking out for our people better . Fix the healthcare system, create jobs that you don't have to ask if they want fries with that. you know things are bad in this country when alot of foreignors are going back home cause they cannot find work. My main point is this...Why kiss other countries asses for goods and services such as oil and other imports when we could do it ourselves that alone would pull the country out of the shitter. That is the way I see it

tribute to my mother inlaw

She died far too young and ,I know she would be proud of her grand babies how they have both grown up healthy and strong. And I Regret she will not be there when I take her daugter's hand in marriage for a second time.Her and I didn't always see eye to eye on alot of things,And for a time she didn't approve of me for Michelle , But I grew on her. She would give michelle and I advise from time to time whether we needed it or not. She had alot of struggles in her life.And had severe depression as a result.But she loved Michelle, and all of us and she will be greatly missed.

this is a very sick joke i just seen.

A professor is giving the first year medical students their first lecture on autopsies, and decides to give them a few basics before starting."You must be capable of two things to do an autopsy. The first thing is that you must have no sense of fear."At this point, the lecturer sticks his finger into the dead man's anus, pulls it out, and then licks it. He asks all the students to do the same thing with the corpses in front of them. After a couple of minutes' silence, they follow through with his disgusting command."The second thing is that you must have an acute sense of observation: How many of you noticed that I stuck my middle finger into the corpse's anus, but I licked my index finger? ... I know very gross and vulgar guys and gals but struck me funny at the time . Sorry if anyone offended.

I want your opinions

My wife and I watch a lot of the crime shows . In some states, I see if someone is on trial for something ,No matter what it is ,If there is a hung jury they walk away free .But in others they are put on trial again. Is that double jeopardy? Don't get me wrong guilty people should do time if they are found that way, but if a jury of your peers cannot decide is that not reasonable doubt. Innocent until proven guilty right. That does not mean have 2 or 3 trials to prove it. I am a strong believer you commit the crime do the time even if capital punishment for murder. But In my opinion the justice system needs an overhaul to make sure they have the right person before they go to trial . How many people have died for having been falsely accused ,Hard telling. My main point here is this unless you can prove it , one trial if you cannot prove it beyond reasonable doubt then by our founding fathers they are innocent. I would like your comments on this subject. I do believe justice should be served ,But make sure you have the right guy,or gal whichever the case may be. No more people should die for the wrongs of others whether criminal or government ,Which hard telling how many in history have. I would just like to see fair justice no matter what your status , Normal joe or famous don't matter. Yes I am on a rant but this country needs to shape up it has gotten beyond the point of sense. The justice system is not fair we all know it . If you have money you will get off if not you screwed. give me your opinions . And that is the way I see it

Another Tribute

A few days ago on music monday week before last I did a tribute to Buddy Holly . But he is not the only talented and influencial musician That died that terrible day. So I wanted to do alittle something for another legend Ritchie Valens. Though he died at such a young age ritchie's music and after so many years ,is still remembered by so many .>

kids gotta love em.

I was online yesterday ,and our daughter was playing video games in our son's room ,When all of a sudden I heard a loud boom! and a delayed cry . I ran in there and found sis a bloody mess. The tv had fell off the table and knocked her two front teeth out. So needless to say we rushed her to Er to get her checked out luckily the tv did'nt break her legs or feet or even worse crush her. She has to get a third tooth pulled next friday cause of damage . I always called her my lil ducky now she looks like one with her top lip so swollen . Poor baby. I usually freak at the sight of blood I did'nt yesterday like another side took over , It is strange how the parent thing can make you forget about the things that make you squeemish .She is getting back to her self today very little pain ,Michelle or I will keep you posted .. take care for now Randy .

Give the Man a chance

Everyone needs to give the President a chance . Dems and republicans argueing over the stimulus package . I see both sides of the issues ,But both parties need to work together if this country is going to get out of the crisis it is in now. I believe the stimulus money should go to the middle class working stiffs like most of us are. The rich have enough money they don't need anymore. tax cuts are great but eventually the government wants it back. If you give out checks for working families they will spend it , I know I would . people would go buy puters, cars , you name it.many people believe Obama is the savior of this country , It is time for all Americans to give the man the chance to proove it . And that is the way I see it.

This is my opinion on the social networks

Many of you have commented on my wife's blog about this subject, So I wanted to give my point of view of the subject. When I think of a social network , I think chainsaw, axe, gun,etc all usefull things but in the wrong hands can be dangerous. Single people 18 and over chatrooms and facebook, myspace, the list goes on and on that is fine but be careful, you do not know who you are really talking to. Now don't get me wrong many people have went on to meet someone and fall in love and eventually marry them, They are the lucky few. Child molesters use these sites to find prey, People that are unhappily married use them to cheat on thier significant other(meet someone to try to hook up later) It is really easy to get stupid online . When you do not know someone ,Do not for one: Don't tell them where you live, Don't send them things you would not want the whole world to see. The internet has become more advanced now than it ever was and you can do the research yourself but I am quite sure the divorce rate globally has risen because of the chatrooms and social networks as well as the exploitation of children . . My point to all the blogosphere is too be carefull ,And monitor your kids no matter how much it pisses them off. To me it does not matter what network ,This is a "network". I enjoy the friends I have made on blog It has helped to start to break the shell I have put myself in .I have never been a very social person ,because growing up I was bullied and picked on all the time. I hated my school years. I met My wife again after a long absence from eachother I knew very quickly I wanted to be with her till I took my last breath, But I made alot of mistakes from then till now. Drinking , trying to be right all the time , (thats my protective side that wants to help her make right decisions) even though she needs to find the right path on her own . Her and I have both hurt eatchother and it was selfish on both of our parts ,But I don't believe our love for eatchother has ever waived. It easy to say screw you ,"You know where the court house is "when you are pissed off. Her and I both know ,We would be lost without the other,We complete eatchother and I hope she feels the same as I .I am pretty sure she does. I still after all that happened in our long and recent past love my wife with all my being and never want to be without her.Folks I want to meet new bloggers out in the blogosphere ,You be real with me and I will be real with you ,That is my promise to you all .... And that folks is the way I see it
