A Plea for Government Provided Birth Control

08 Mar

It is a lovely evening here in central Virginia.  The temperature is mild and a gentle breeze is blowing. The first signs of Spring are appearing. 

There is a full moon rising and shimmering over the small pond in the back yard.  The peepers are peeping and the Canadian geese are making a ruckus as they engage in their spring time biological imperative.  By mid-spring we’ll be flush with goslings and by mid-summer we’ll be over run with geese, crapping all over the lawn and arguing amongst themselves at all hours of the night, making a general nuisance of themselves.

Mr. Obama, I think these geese are Catholic, so if you could see to it that they are force fed birth control I’d be mighty grateful.

    You have a pond in your backyard? Sounds lovely. Have you considered getting a Border Collie? They might chase the geese away.

    “Catholic geese” … hahahahaha

      All I’ve got is a gimpy Bernese Mountain Dog and she doesn’t chase anything other than me when I’m making or eating a meal. It’s my fault that Liberty is a begger. I know.

      She is. She went through some ugly surgery last week on her thigh and the recovery was very difficult for her. And gut wrenching for me. I got up in the middle of the night to administer pain killing injections (for her), but the good news is that she’s past the worst of it and we have to scold her not to run until her stitches are out.

      I feared that running was not in her future. It definitely is.

      Incidentally Liberty was born right before Ronald Reagan’s death and I was trying to come up with a name, but while watching the funereal events that word, Liberty, kept coming up …and then DUH. Of course!

        I hear it over and over again on WRVA.

    Am extending all Good wishes for Liberty to have a complete recovery!

    Took a peek at WRVA and it sounds like a good, conservative radio station. Did notice that they don’t carry Mark R. Levin. In case you’d like to hear him sometime his show can be heard at his website: anytime for free!

      Liberty’s is going to be fine. Stitches out tomorrow and she’s dying for a run. Thanks for your good wishes.

      No, WRVA isn’t carried here in spite of my lobbying efforts. They insist on having a local host from 3-6 and then bump Hannity to the 6-9 segment, which means that Richmond Hannity listeners don’t get to participate as callers. They should just go with Rush, Hannity and Levin in their normal time slots.

      Thank goodness for XM and podcasts.

      I had the privilege to meet Mark back in the early 2000s when he wasn’t a big radio star, just a FNC regular guest and Landmark Legal Foundation. He was one of the nicest, humblest guys you’d ever want to meet.

    So good that you got to meet Levin. He does sound like a good guy. Was listening to him one night when he said that he’d vote for an empty orange juice can before he’d vote for Obama. Come to think of it, so would I.

      Come to think of it, I did get to close to him and he said, ‘GET OFF MY SHOE YOU BIG DOPE!!’ Not really. LOL.

      At this point I’d be willing to take a random drawing of employed persons, someone out of the white pages, as long as their not a deadbeat, to be president. We could not do worse than what we’ve got now.
