Howdy from the Ranch Mr.Infidel! First ... Thank You for searching for and posting this selection of link's. I still have a few to read, but also have to go to work in a bit ... a couple hundred mile's south of Dallas ... so I wanted to post a couple quikies here.

I understand the frustration of Mr.SE Bastard and atheist's as far as shoving religion down the throat's of America, luckily this town has a group to support them, or they would be out of business quick! But I couldnt help laughing my ass off watching the video he posted also! I would expect to see this sort of thing in some rural Texas town. But a hilarious one I want to contribute here if I may. Between Austin and Dallas (TX), a lil over a couple hundred miles, way out in the middle of some lone prarie off the Interstate 35, no home's around or anything much, there is this adult sex arcade and dvd rental joint with a big billboard by it, advertising what it offer's, lotion's, potion's, mag's, arcade's, dvd's, etc, ... well on the flip side of the same billboard, is another advertisement from a church, saying to save yourself from porn, go see Jesus, etc, etc ... it is common to find these joint's way out in some prarie or desert only because it may be the only place for miles in a particular county to find adult item's/ sales, and these are also pick up point's for booth quickies for local redneck's or such and local redneck gal's looking to make a buck ... but to see this billboard on both side's is hilarious!

Also thanx for the posting on Daily Caller piece about blogging for buck's ... Leslie on Parsley's Pics site gave me some point's the other day, I wasnt even aware of. I would actually be ashamed to write politic's online motivated by profit, or even allow ad's on my blog, that's just me.

Also thanx on the piece from Huffington Post on China poised for Implosion, because what is going on over there, is going to be a real show, the communist government had to jump in recently just to try to have some control over the outside investor's buying up all the real estate around, this will be a show though for sure!

Have a Good Un Guy ....
