I did 2 miles in just under 40 minutes on the recumbent stepper at Cardiac Rehab this morning; because of my arthritic hip, I don’t use my feet, just my arms, but this is about as fast as I’ve moved in years. It was tough due only to my sleep deprivation: the last two nights, my roommate has stayed up well past 1AM and then started yelling about his “urine bottle” needing to be emptied at 5AM. He pees a small amount into his urinal, never filling it up like normal guys would do, being too stupid to lie on his side and put his tallywhacker inside the plastic vessel . . . Apparently, he lies on his back and pees straight up in defiance of gravity, then wonders why he wets the bed. Frankly, I think his whole family are as dumb as a box of rocks, and probably inbred.
Couldn’t get a cup of coffee before catching my ride to St. Anthony North this AM, either, which also contributed to my fatigue. At lunch a while ago, they didn’t give me a tray in my room before rolling the cart away, but I yelled at them to STOP. A waste of time; it was a small serving of cole slaw, a gristly chicken salad sandwich (I do believe they chop up beaks and feet along with the chicken meat), and a few cubes of cantaloupe. I’ll ask for a couple of hamburgers for dinner in an attempt to make up for it.
A mess o’ chicken feet, regarded as a delicacy in many other countries.
Here’s a great letter-to-the-editor of the (Colorado Springs) Westside Pioneer online: Bums ‘breaking our laws and nothing is being done.’
I no longer follow any news from Boulder, CO. Don’t miss it one darn bit!
Have a good day, everyone!
I’ve been thinking about this, and have concluded that it’s really a 3-point plan for left-wing political activists to follow:
1) Resist objectivity
2) Resist civility
3) Resist common sense
Of course, the ultimate goal is to raise lots of $$$ for the most extreme candidates on the Left. To that end, I think a more effective slogan / image would be:

It’s a better facility than most intended for (forgotten) homeless American kids, with more resources of every kind. And I’d bet this is the norm with (high-profile) immigrant kids, NOT the exception!
I give credit to CNN for doing some objective reporting in this case . . . We should demand more of it.
See the report in the Washington Post by clicking here.
In fact, NEVER separated from her mother.
Also see Trump rips media for ignoring Angel Families ‘permanently separated’ by illegal immigrant crime.
WTF? Most of the media in America today are just despicable, and seemingly incapable of telling the unvarnished truth on anything that might yield benefits to the Far Left if misrepresented in a certain way.

See the report here.
Quoting from it below:
President Barack Obama has often been referred to by immigration groups as the “Deporter in Chief.” Between 2009 and 2015 his administration has removed more than 2.5 million people through immigration orders, which doesn’t include the number of people who “self-deported” or were turned away and/or returned to their home country at the border by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
According to governmental data, the Obama administration has deported more people than any other president’s administration in history.
In fact, they have deported more than the sum of all the presidents of the 20th century.
President George W. Bush’s administration deported just over two million during his time in office; and Obama’s numbers don’t reflect his last year in office, for which data is not yet available.
Also see the CNN clip posted to YouTube on 4/26/2016: OBAMA BORDER REMARKS — CHILDREN UNLIKELY TO STAY.
But while these immigrant parents and children ARE being detained in our country, pending a resolution of their status, living conditions are better than those of many American parents and children who are living below the so-called poverty line. Certainly FAR BETTER than those of the estimated 2.5 million homeless children in the USA cited in this report from National Center on Family Homelessness in 2014.
Why aren’t we taking care of our own? A couple of thousand immigrant children compared to over a couple of million homeless American kids — it seems like our priorities ought to be clear to everyone: Republicans, Democrats, and Independents alike!

My roommate is being moved to a different hall very soon. He may be alone in his new room, given the amount of disturbance he causes both day and night, and staff working my hall seem just as happy to be rid of him as I am.
“I can’t find my urinal! And somebody has stolen my TV remote again! Assist me, young lady, or I’ll turn you in to your supervisor.”
(I’ve obviously taken some license with this image: nobody on staff at Happy Haven wears a bikini.)
I suspect that if he bothers his new neighbors as badly as he’s irritated me, the next option for him will be the Colorado Mental Health Institute at Fort Logan.

Large hail, the largest I’ve ever seen, fell during a brief thunderstorm here in Thornton, CO last night, It was quite loud, pounding the roof for several minutes.
For the first time since last December, I showered with Ivory bar soap this morning. It’s GREAT to feel really clean for a change. Thanks to the fan of this blog who stopped by on Saturday with a 10-pack of Ivory and two 500-count packages of Q-Tips (the amount of wax built up in my ears was unbelievable, but it’s gone now).
Food is occasionally very good here at Happy Haven and sometimes there’s even enough of it to assuage hunger.
(No doubt about it: I’m far more handsome than Jabba the Hutt.)
What can be said about the dirty, rotten scoundrels at the F.B.I.? They’ve failed at every crooked scheme they’ve tried — and today they’re being excoriated by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) who stuck up for the feebs in general just a couple of weeks ago. Remember, there are more reports on the way from the DOJ Inspector General, and it’s likely things will get even worse for Comey and his band of crooks in the next few weeks.
Prospects are also bleak for the Dems this November, it seems to me, and their woes are entirely self-inflicted.

Have a good day!
