Taking a Knee

Bruce Maxwell of the Oakland A’s decided to take a knee during the National Anthem… I don’t care, if I don’t like something I use the almighty dollar to make my point, so Bruce when the Stadium is almost empty, and the Ball Club is losing money and the poor Hot Dog Salesman is sent home because there just isn’t enough people in the Stadium to justify him being there, explain to him why he was sent home and your making 500k a year to catch a ball…maybe he will care.

Bruce Maxwell Taking a Knee

This is Bruce’s first year, if they fire him now nobody will remember his name next year.

Stand up, Kneel Down, Raise your Fist, Raise your Arms, Don’t Shoot – Don’t Shoot, Put your Hoodie on and Take it Off, Beat Your Chest and Shake Your Beads, We’re Doing The Vatican Rag.


Kern River

I took Freedom out for a leg stretch today along the Kern River in Kernville, It’s been six weeks since he has had a good walk but yesterday I went to Palmdale and got some injections in my spine and today I decided to give them a test run, I’m still in some uncomfortable pain but not at all like it was, so the walk went well, all around Kern River Park and into the town where I happened upon an Old Friend Nick, we chatted a bit then I took Freedom back to the truck and came home, it was a beautiful drive, wild sunflowers along the road and the smell of High Desert Sage, very nice I must admit, so I’ll leave you with a picture of a very contented dog — This is Freedom’s happy look.

What is with everyone calling people with opposing point of views a “Nazi”, it’s like if you are the first to call the other a Nazi you win the argument/debate. Society needs to learn to debate different opinions, shouting down, name calling and violence is not the answer, we are no longer a civilized society and this is leading us down a very dangerous path.
