I moved from Texas to Oklahoma in July of 1997. I guess that makes me a Bubba. That's why this is the Bubba's Bog Blog. There are days that I really feel like a 'bogged out Bubba'. Another part of the 'bog motif' is that I once lived in Kermit, Texas (in my 'oilfield' daze). Which is why my CB handle was 'The Frog'. It may have had something to do with 'Sesame Street'. My wife's handle was 'Silly Goose'. I guess that that's a fairly large bird.

For some oppinion that you...
...didn't get on NPR, NBC, ABC or CBS...
you might want to take a look at
Liberalism, Socialism and the Privileged
It's an excellent statement about the power structure of the Moonbat Hive. Or, to put it another way...
things the Frog knew, but was uanble to verbalize, because every time he tried it ended up in a rant of some sort.

In Thursday's White House press briefing, press secretary Scott McClellan defended deputy chief of staff and close Bush advisor Karl Rove saying that Rove was merely addressing "different philosophies and different different approaches" in winning the war on terrorism.
Rove, in a speech Wednesday (6/22/o5) evening to the New York state Conservative Party just a few miles north of Ground Zero, said, "Liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers." Conservatives, he said, "saw the savagery of 9/11 and the attacks and prepared for war."
Adding to Mr. Rove's comment is beyond the Frog's reach at this time.
A mind once stretched by a new idea never regains its original dimensions.

This was sent to...
...me by a Brother in Christ in SanAntonio, Texas. I will not vouch for the theolgy, but the thought is good.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
One night I had a wondrous dream,
One set of footprints there was seen.
The footprints of my precious Lord,
But mine were not along the shore.
And then some stranger prints appear,
I ask the Lord,"What have we here?"
"These prints are large and round and neat."
"But Lord, they are too big for feet."
"My child," He said with somber tone,
"For miles I carried you alone."
"I challenged you to walk in faith,"
"But you refused. I had to wait."
"You disobeyed. You would not grow."
"The walk of faith, you would not know."
"I got tired. I got fed up."
"And I dropped you on your butt."
"Because in life, there comes a time,"
"When one must fight, and one must climb."
"When one must rise and take a stand,"
"Or leave their butt prints in the sand."
I am so glad...
... that I am not responsible for raising the 'ADULT CHILDREN of OTHER PARENTS'.
When our kids misbehaved certain things happened. Thing number one was that they apologized (and it was required to be sincere) for the misbehaviour. The apology, of necessity, included an action plan to amend the result of the misbehaviour and an action plan to amend the mindset that led to the misbehaviour . Thing number two involved accepting the consequences the misbehaviour. The consequences were always of a mental nature (without the withdrawl of affection - a long talking to) and (frequently) of a physical nature commensurate with the misdeed. Yes, gentle reader, the Frog and the Silly Goose did, upon occaision, resort to the "laying on of hands' (which can be enterpretted as a butt paddling).
When the second most powerful DEMORAT in the United States Senate misbehaves, precious little happens. He doesn't have to apologize for the misbehavior. All he has to do is say that, 'Gee, I'm sorry if I made you feel bad'. Our kids would have loved to have gotten away with a deal like that. And consequences... oh please spare me. The other DEMORATS are rewarding Dastardly Dickie Durbin by giving him lots of publicity. They are going to attempt to give credence to his lies and half truths by having hearings. A lie that is advertised loudly enough and long enough will eventually become the 'THE TRUTH' . Wouldn't it just be simpler to just look at the records? The military is good at at keeping records - nonclassified, day to day records of every nut, bolt, turnip and slice of chicken. And how about the published records and unclassified records of the 'watchdog' agencies that have been watching since the Gitmo Prisoner Compound was put in place?
Aha, but that will never happen because WEEPUBLICANS have the HIDDEN AGENDA that must be uncovered. And it's so easy, because we WEEPUBLICANS seem to be looking for enough backbone to maybe think about acting like a majority!
Do the DEMORATS have an agenda. Darned right they do. Most people reading this are old enough to remember a gent (I believe from the U. of Toronto) named Marshall McCluhan. Yep, that's the guy... "The Media is the Message". They are wearing us WEEPUBLICANS down with B.S. so that when the big guns come out, we will be totally desensitized and it will be easier to make a lie into the truth. You just think that you heard it all after the clean up of Teddy Kennedy's driving record and of Dickie D's cranal-rectal-insertion over Gitmo.
You haven't seen anything until the (pardon-the-expression) DEMORATIC SHITSTORM OVER THE NOMINATION OF A SUPREME COURT JUSTICE GETS STARTED!
WEEPUBLICANS - FIND YOUR SPINE IN THE SENATE. THE FUTURE OF AMERICA (AS I KNOW IT) IS HANGING IN THE BALANCE!

... is aggravated by Dastardly Dick Durbin's NON APOLOGY for his treasonous remarks. If any of my kids had come up with that kind of "apology", really bad things would have happened with a switch and their back ends. He has not apologized for the things said, which are (by the bye) lies. He has apologized for getting caught! He has not apologized for his misconduct.
How it looks at the front...
...makes a frog wonder about the 'home front'.

...interesting report on our hero Little Dickie Durbin. It's entitled Durbin Round-up and it's found at Roscoe's Blog which is an example of why Marines are always welcome in the bog. Of course, Roscoe was a rifleman (all marines are). He just happened to be on temporary duty flying an airplane in close support of other riflemen.
If you're a Little Dickie Durbin fan this is a site for you.
Enjoy! It's more fun than fresh mud after a spring rain.
Take another look...
... at my post on Sunday, May 29th. Walt Kelly's cartoon strip POGO just keeps on giving!
I may be able to laugh again soon.

PS - if anybody could help a technogically challenged frog... How do I link back to a previous post on my own blog so you don't have to look it up in the archives? Each page probably has a URL, but I am clueless about where to find it. Thanx. K
... the CREDO hasn,t been posted for a while. So...
These words are loosely attributed to Teddy Roosevelt.

That sort of tippy, sliding feeling...
... may be the boat leaving. I've got the feeling that a few Senators just sold all of us down the river!

...find the Republican majority in the U.S. Senate a new spine.
Is there a website where I can get the record of which Senators voted how on Bolton? I would like to send the 38 of them that 'hung tough' a big note of congratulations. If the Senators from my state did not vote for Bolton, I intend to find out why.

... I posted before I edited when the cat hopped onto the keyboard. I meant to put up a cute kitten picture to indicate that I was humbled and sorry. Gee, there went the Peace Offering! I also appologize to the Porcupine. The picture makes her/him look unhappy. Or at least in the midst of a bad hair day. How can you feel good about a porcupine in the midst of a bad hair day? That's just not P.C.
I must run now. I'll be giving a stem winder of a sermon in little bit and have to get really, well, wound up.
One of the joys of being 'non-stipendiary' is that I can say what needs to be said, and if the congregation walks... I guess they didn't want to hear.
