Poncey lives: http://mike585.wordpress.com/2011/09/20/i-shouldn%e2%80%99t-be-too-ready-to-jump-to-conclusions-i-really-shouldn%e2%80%99t-do-it/

So I got that one wrong.

Appears a habit.

http://thefatguy.com/ a blog of long standing, the owner of which has lived rather an interesting life and had the temerity to shoot a computer hard drive square in its little gizzard reports on his battle with cancer.

He has undertaken chronologically detailing his trials and tribulations – not with his life thoughts, but with the system as it absorbs him for treatment. Over the last few visits to the medical mills I’ve developed an attitude of “Which is worse?” following the writings.

Good Luck, Fat Guy.

If you’ve read or watched TV, you know that Perry called Social Security a Ponzi Scheme. I’ve written here years back that I felt Social Security is a Ponzi Scheme, so it should be no surprise Perry didn’t surprise me saying that.

Now, if you read the New York Times, or watch TV, the Department of Justice has done its thing against On-line gaming.

The latest is action against a poker site called Full Tilt Poker. The indictment was expanded yesterday to include five of the owners and officers of the site into the indictment. The DOJ spokesman called Full Tilt Poker a “Ponzi Scheme.”, and then went on to describe how new money in paid the old money debts – actually the site comingled operational funds with player deposits. Not a good idea.

What motivated me to mention the event was:

http://www.americanthinker.com/2011/09/all_entitlements_are_not_created_equal.html

which attempts to explain (and fairly well does) the major items of entitlements draining the treasury. It is an article well worth the reading even if the author kind of peters out toward the end.

He manages to finish  without too many editorial comments.

posted some intriguing snippets of polls be-lying the actions of obama and his progressives.

Not to put too fine a point on it;  consider the political action against the AF General to modify his Congressional Testimony and the current effort to modify and eviscerate the military through the manipulation of its pay/retirement structure, means the military will pay.

And heavily, its share of the National burden this Administration and the Democratic Congress has saddled upon us.

Housekeeper’s here. While she and her hubby were out two weeks ago at the 100 mile long, two State, garage sale, she bought twenty five tennis balls in a bag for twenty-five cents.

Dog puppy now has one of those balls – and wants to share with me, which means I’ve re-typed this entry several times.

Housekeeper is a no good-nik. She claims she brought the ball to keep dog puppy from jumping on her in greeting (and it worked admirably, to my detriment).

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
