Bloviating Zeppelin: Box of Rocks, Pt. II

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Box of Rocks, Pt. II

First: no, I didn't go back to get a puppy. I know that, the way my life is situated, getting a pup would be unfair to the puppy. I am nothing if not a realist.

Second: I felt a bit better today. I went out train chasing with my camera. I caught train after train running both east and westbound. The ground was dark and damp, saturated with last night's rain. The sky was cobalt blue and resounded with crystal clarity. I feel compelled to post a photo.

Third: our so-called "union" is hamstrung with internal strife that may cost the membership not just thousands of dollars, but potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars in suits extant. My union is, unfortunately in Fornicalia, a "closed shop" -- meaning that I have no choice: the dollars for my "association" WILL be taken from my paycheck. However, as the dysfunctional competing president, vice-president and board no longer represent me and, in my opinion, no one but their diminutive-brained selves -- well, I cannot halt the deductions from my check, but I believe a law exists whereupon I CAN choose between the "association" and, for example, a CHARITY that I designate.

Is there anyone sufficiently versed in the area that can confirm this option for me in Fornicalia? Can you quote this law for me? Given the choice, I determine NEVER to provide another PENNY to my union and, if the option is available, I would designate my union dues be sent directly to my local Law Enforcement Chaplaincy.

Fourth: the Coonies came to eat the cat food I leave nightly for my three feral cat buddies in the neighborhood. I don't leave the water anymore because the Coonies invite all their friends and cousins, conduct a massive hand-washing session and leave a bowl of dirty water. I've seen them bring out the bristle brushes, Palmolive soap, comb their hair, apply hair gel, some nice Ralph Lauren spray. And they're fun to watch.

Fifth: I subscribe to DirecTV but none of the premium channels. I don't get HBO or CineMax or anything else. Showtime is FREE this weekend. So I've been watching a bunch of movies, and Californication, Brotherhood and, of course, my favourite: DEXTER. I have all three of the Dexter books authored by Jeff Lindsey. Grand fun.

Sixth: Go Green Bay Packers! Brett Favre is the last of a breed: a player who feels more obligated to the team than to himself. Unlike, for example, Joe Montana and Jerry Rice -- who jumped ship for their last seasons.

Life is short. Find your loved one. Take her or him into your arms tonight. Tell them what you really think about them. Realize what an incredible value they are in your life. Be good.

Go Pack!

This is quite a diverse post!

Sorry, BZ, but I can't help you with your union problem. I don't know anything about California law or unions. Hopefully someone will see this post who does.

I'm glad to hear that you're feeling better. What you had is terrible and when I had it, it ran into pneumonia. I thought it would be the end of me!

You're wise to not get a dog if you haven't the time to care for it properly. I wish more people had such good sense!

Henry: thanks for commenting! You have a remarkably designed blog! I'm not quite sure I understand it, but it's an eye-stunner! My union is in a law enforcement agency in Fornicalia. And, my gosh, thanks for blogrolling me!

No problem on the blog roll!

Thanks for the compliments; it's just a template I found. I figure it goes with the "seeing" concept of video blogging--"Eyes Only" "Top Secret". Eh?

I was asking about the union 'cuz I can get the shyster wife to look into the laws you were asking about. We live in Kalifornia as well, so she's well versed in the Code.

Henry: I would appreciate that very much -- I'm fairly sure the law exists but, should I pull that card in a public forum I know I'll likely be challenged, and I'd like to have the quotation, case or information at hand so I could show certain persons that I didn't simply pull a rabbit outta my hat, so to speak. I would VERY much appreciate that.

"....You're wise to not get a dog if you haven't the time to care for it properly...." (i talked to my local Humane Society, and here they have a program where you can give the shelter and pooches a much needed break from the routine by taking them in temporarily into your home, to care and take them out for a walk , etc...

i sure hope to do that, as that would best suit my schedule, etc...maybe you could do that??

your RACOON story was the neatest thing i experienced today. the Racoons that came to eat the cat food after dark made me very very thankful that there was a sliding glass door inbetween us...but it was such a bonding experience for me and my young daughter, i remember telling her, while the Racoons were eating with their hands, that they all looked so human that it scared me....but ours never primped like that; could you please get it on video next time and share it, thankyou; so please dont take their water away...

If I had the techno capability, I'd love to do it. I am a literal techno dumbshit. You haven't been able to gather that with regard to my oversimplistic and preternaturally-basic blog?
