FUN: There goes “MY” Wiz of Oz win!

*** begin quote ***

In late January, the largest WMS WAP jackpot ever, totaling more than $4.9 million, was won on THE WIZARD OF OZ™ RUBY SLIPPERS™ penny slot game at Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa, Atlantic City, N.J.

*** end quote ***


That should have been mine. Wrong time.

On 1/21/11, I dropped $300 in that machine. (Don’t have a cow, I was winning! Finished the trip up about 700$ after splitting. My life was all good that day. But it could have been infinitely better!)

Why not me?

Argh! Square.

(Maybe Luddite shouldn’t have told me, in my fragile emotional state.)


Time for an appropriate quote from “CHURCH 10●19●62”?

“If she mourned anything, she mourned that. It might be terrible to say. But, she felt as she would imagine the lottery winner who can’t find the ticket to cash.” — character “June” in CHURCH 10●19●62 Volume 2 Page 189

I guess I don’t feel as bad as that. I never had the tickets. And, Our Girl always said that I was unlucky. She was wrong. I won her in life’s lottery. That was enough luck for one lifetime. Imagine all the folks who never find their soulmate?

POLITICAL: Feminism another killing meme

Throw mama under the tank

*** begin quote ***

Over the years, women in the military have served this country with honor and distinction. As a result, 134 have died in Iraq or Afghanistan, and many more were seriously injured. Many of these women were mothers with one or more children under the age of 18. In contrast, we lost only 16 women in Vietnam and six in the first (short) Persian Gulf War.

Many women in those combat support units have found themselves in fire fights, and they have displayed great courage. Feminists hail this as a victory, and they are willing to step over the bodies of their fallen comrades to achieve their goal of running the military. President Obama and many of our elected representatives in Congress are willing to sacrifice enlisted women to advance this feminist goal. We must not allow that to happen!

The purpose of the military is to kill people and break things. Let us not forget that. It is not about achieving diversity on the battlefield and equality in the Pentagon.

Sorry, but women shouldn’t be deliberately put in combat.

Morally, strategically, and tactically — it’s a mistake at all levels, imho.

In Israel, where there is no safety at the rear, it make sense.

In the USA, makes none.

It’s not that I think that “girls are too weak”. Although a dual standard test is a sham. It’s not that I don’t think the can’t make a contribution. It’s not that I don’t think they can fight. (Insert Mama Grizzly metaphor.)

It’s that they are a distraction from the mission, are targets of rape by our own men, and have a more important mission.

Like it or not, they are the future of humanity. When men can have babies, we can reevaluate the situation. Till then, they have a higher calling.

Making babies and guarding them.

Other than the self-preservation instinct, there is no higher calling than “propagating the species”.

I heard a interesting stat yesterday. Europe will fall to Islam because of the birth rates. The USA and Canada as well.

Interesting that the memes of feminism — career over family, birth control, and abortion — will kill our way of life. Throw in the memes of fiat money, Gooferment runs everything, and “Moms have to work to pay taxes” — the distruction is complete.

MEMORIES: 5/20/10 musings — prescient — or just obvious to anyone who looked?

This bowel prep has not gone as easily as I thought it would. The GoLitely sucks. I find it had to drink. Hope that I drank enough. Sorry but I should have kept my mouth shut about using up this forty dollar bucket of crap. Hope I never have to do this again. Argh. 63 plus 10 = 73. SO I won’t be doing it again.

What will my life be like in ten years?

Will I be alone? Will I have buried Ev? Odds odd I will have. The Blood Doc wouldn’t give her a five year prognosis. And, the DIABETIC DOC had a hang doc look when she told him. SO clearly we are on the final stretch. What will I do without her. My own laundry for sure.

Where did my life go?

How can I communicate that? Rage at the dying of the light!

Rodney Dangerfield’s performance sticks in my mind. Have to watch that again. Like Groundhog day, it is strangely prophetic.

I’m cleaning up old files and notes off McBa. Prophetic? I knew we were drawing to short odds. Makes me mad. Perhaps if the situation was explained better, I’m sure she would have made different decisions about how to spend the time she had. Running from doctor to doctor was a waste of time. I wonder if they really knew it. Argh!

Oh well, water under the bridge.
