Annoucement
I am going to declare Sanity’s Bluff a success and spend some time thanking everyone who has helped make it successful.

I plan to go back through all the hundreds of comments and revisit all of your blogs again. That will take quite sometime, but I want to do it. There are a few I must thank by name or at least the name you blog with. Jay, Scooter, booklover, aubreyj, phildillion, loneranger, vulture6, Thomas and many more people who have read and commented here. THANKS.

I am going to give politics a rest for awhile.
I can hear the applause.

Very soon, my blog will be redesigned by the folks at digitally essential. I have requested a truckdriving theme for the blog. It was a tall order for the artist, but it is what I want. Truck Driving has been my life for a long time. It has perhaps saved my life, (more on that in later blogs) and now makes my life comfortable. Comfortable when I get through with the driving part of my day, that is.

Most truck drivers have a world view much like I do. Like it or not, we are mostly neocons, and Christians. I have been a dues paying Teamster of 23 years now, but I rarely agree with the union’s politics. A majority of Teamsters are now Republican, and that is why the Teamsters left the AFL-CIO. Members have been griping about the union spending their dues money on only Democratic campaigns. All of this will change, and so the Liberals will be losing more financial backers. See, I am hopeless; I drag politics into every discussion. I need help, a twelve step program or something. LOL.

Truck drivers used to be known as the knights of the road. That used to be the case, but it is difficult in today’s world to be of much help to the motoring public. Our interaction nowadays with the public is mostly smiling at the four wheelers giving us the finger. Gone are the days of the sleepy truck driver pulling over to give a hippie a ride down the road, so that the conversation will keep him awake. Our world is changing constantly and most people are also changing. Life happens.

Again THANKS, and I am going to try
to give politics a rest starting right now.

Another first, the first time I have started the comments thread to my own post, but I forgot to mention one important thing........I was talking about 23 years as a dues paying Teamster. What I forgot to mention is that I could have chosen to not participate in the union. I live and work in a 'right to work state' which means I am not forced to join the union and pay dues. I know all of the good of the past that the unions have brought about, sure there are things I don't agree with, but I know America, and it is better because of unions, preachers and nurses. But mark my words, the Teamsters will start endorsing and financing Republicans in the future. This only goes to prove both parties are clones of each other. I really believe that.....oh no....I have been caught talking and blogging about politics, in the comment section of my own blog......
I have no shame......shameless......have you ever heard that Garth Brooks via Billy Joel song????? that's me....shamelessly political.

Wow, web! The Blog design is fabulous. Congrats again on your achievement here!

Thanks for the thanks (very unexpected) and glad a few of my comments have benefitted Sanity's Bluff...lol.

I'm counting til the next political comment. I like counting anyway so if it really is a while, I'll be enjoying myself.

Smile,

Looking forward to seeing what you do here in the future.

Oh...and if you ever stop talking politics, I'll donate to the GOP. It's in your blood, friend.

Sorry to change topic.....
WMD
Heads-up on this one….
I’m not really sure what to think on this. But I think they found some WMD.
"Possible Chemical Production Facility found in Iraq" So DoD says...

aubreyj.....not at all surprising. These terrorists in Iraq are cowards. They are afraid to face our soldiers and they wouldn’t last very long among their own people if they announced who they were. The constitution is about ready to be revealed, so the violence will get worse probably. I have heard that the Iraqi Government is going to formally warn Iran and Syria to stop allowing terrorist the freedom to move in their country, and cross their borders into Iraq.
By the way, I had never been to your website; I had always visited your blogsite. I went today and downloaded the slide shows. Great job.

Thanks WL...
Again, the new look is GREAT!!!!
AubreyJ.....
PS
Like Jay said,
You can't stop talking politics...

Blogger Scooter said...

You are very welcome.

An no I haven't heard Garth Brooks via Billy Joel, but I have heard via Bily Joel himself.

I want to say this....I am so sorry for the negative things I post. I don't agree with webloafer politically...as is clear. But he is a good man. I say things in anger sometimes that I regret later.

Many things. Got my own stuff to deal with. But...web is a good guy...better than most...and the next time I post when I am drunk...please just ignore it. LOL...as you all wisely do for the most part.

I am sorry, John. But it's probably too late for me to make any major changes. I will post this disclaimer periodically. I mean you no harm.

You've been a great everything to me.

Too late for me...smile.

M, enough of the self blame. Before any of us are Republican or Democrat, male or female, black or white, rich or poor, happy or sad......before all of this, we are born through a miracle, and have a soul. If a person cannot see human birthing as a miracle, they won't be enjoying their own journey through life.
I have said this before and it is still true. I would not be happy surrounded by people who agree with me about everything. And I would not learn very much.
But, we do tend to seek comfort in these uncomfortable times from those that most closely agree with us.
Thanks for the selfcensoring.

Blogger booklover9191 said...

how do you keep forgiving me? I am so sorry. You don't know how sorry I am for the mess I have put you through. I am...I am so sorry.

I want you to enjoy your your years left here. Honest.
