The ugly’s  were out last night. I’m sure some satisfaction was in the drag races, or the noise or screeching tires.

Speaking of vehicles, Joey Lagano has slid down to eight of eight in the bid for NASCAR’s championship. Texas was not kind to him. And the pay-back by Kenseth didn’t help him either.

Football.

Did you see? The Forty-niners actually won one. The I’m happy with that, but Manning has been very unfortunate at the Colts stadium; the game left him three yards short of Farve’s record of total passing yards. The Redskins lost also. I can’t say that was a surprise, but an article in the sports column somewhere indicated that the Pat’s were using the Skins to pad the Pat’s records.

I suppose that’s what happens when your team is considered a puff muffin.

That record, whether Manning sets it high or low, will not last long. There are a couple of QB’s out there barking up that same tree and they seem durable enough to set one anew.

On the political front, it seems most of the action was on SNL. I didn’t watch it. Ben Carson’s voter program called twice. He’s the first in a while from out of State to set up a preliminary phone campaign before the primaries actually start.

Good thinking on his part.

One must respect the man for his accomplishments. I have a personal problem with him. It has to do with his race. Not his skin color, the culture of the blacks. I have a shinning example of black use of power in the present occupant of the Whitehouse.

The shucking and jiving and dancing around the truth and honesty seems endemic in black culture, to me, and that brings up the insurmountable question of “Do we really need another Black in the Whitehouse, so soon?”

I wrestle with that. I really do. But the prospect of getting a woman in there is, looking at Hillary, the lying candidate, is enough to drag on the Republican woman also.

Yeah. I know. You’re judging all woman by Hillary.

No. Just the one’s running for office.

That puts two aside right now. I’m thinking of Huckabee, too. He’s a bit evangelical leaning. So make it three. Cruz, Rubico, the Senator that wants to run two campaigns at the same time? Throw away. Rubico  maybe, will make the final five.

The evangelical thingy (my use of it) bothers me. The Constitution does ot prohibit religion, no way, no how. It prohibits the government FORMING a religion, a State religion, it doesn’t prevent religious symbols in government building either.

Some how our judicial folks have gotten political – and, it seems, on the Liberal hard line.

Snicker.

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.
