Freaky Friday.

This will be a post in parts.

Lemurita and I are in Oregon visiting my dad. It is an awesome trip and I am loving hanging out with her. It is really nice to spend time with her without sibling rivalry. It is the first time I have ever done so and it is the first time Cruel Wife and HackerBoy have done the same.

Anyhow, she stayed with her aunt and uncle last night and I drove out to their house today. She had fun with her cousins SaladGirl and GameBoy.

My brother-in-law said today “You like Halloween, right?”

You know how I love Halloween.

He then said “Want to see the costume I am working on?”

So he showed me his “Babyface” costume.

This is NSFC (not safe for children)…

Is that not creepy? I loved it.

He wants to start a “Rude Roadhouse Bar and Grill – Where you will eat your damn vegetables” and he wants me to cook there. We have established that the waitresses must chew on cigar stubs and have naughty tattoos. Feel free to chime in with your suggestions.

Next is a goat at my sister’s house/farm/menagerie. I was introduced to her and gave her some goat-scritches. Then I gave her a goat-massage of her goat-shoulders (no, get your heads out of the gutters, people). Then we moved on to see other farm critters. I said to my sister, The Mad Felter, “One thing I know is goats.”

“How do you know goats?”

“Neighbors three houses down from dad’s place had them. I sure love getting out in the country again. If the zombie apocalypse happens I will get the family, we’ll fight our way across the country and come live with you, ok? We work hard and will bring our own zombie-killin’ tools.”

“Cool!”

Just then I got knocked to the side gently by the goat, who demanded more shoulder massages.

Romney is appealing to my pro-gun nature by telling me what Obama is going to do to my gun rights if he gets re-elected.

Well, friggin’ DUH.  I knew that much, you bonehead.

“If we are going to safeguard our 2nd Amendment, it is time to elect a president who will defend the rights President Obama ignores or minimizes. I will.” – The latest in a long stream of RINO’s, Mitt Romney

Just what we need – a leader to tell us that ducks like water, that rain is wet, unrefrigerated mayonnaise is bad, and that rabid skunks don’t make good pets.

Tell me something I don’t know, like what YOU will do to ensure that states are controlled by the federal government in only one way when it comes to guns:  That the right to keep and bear arms will not be infringed at any level.  Saying “He won’t, I will” tells me nothing.  As a governor who championed health care after being elected in a liberal state, he doesn’t gain unconditional and total acceptance from me without demonstrating a commitment and telling me of a solution that he might have in this area.  I’m not fond of gun regulations that only hinder law-abiding citizens and put them at risk if they defend themselves.

Really,  though, my disgust is irrelevant.  It’s not like I have any choice – because primaries are not done all in one day the first states out of the gate pretty much decide what oversized, patched, mismatched, gaudy-colored hand-me-down candidates I get to choose from.  So my choice is now Romney or Obama.  That’s not a choice.

Even that was an illusion of choice.  It wouldn’t matter who won the nod from the republicans (besides Paul), the vote is not really FOR a candidate, it is AGAINST Obama.  Plain and simple, Ron Paul’s approach would be draconian and mess things up by trying do eliminate too much at once.

****

Let me ask you this…  Would THIS happen if everyone had guns with which to defend themselves?
