Sometimes, in the world of meetings, trainings, and orientations, there are times when the newer people need to learn a few things from the old hands. Here on this blog, if you wish to register as a subscriber, I ask that you click on the tab in the header that says “Subscribers” and read through and follow the instructions listed there. As long as the new subscribers try to flatter me with “adding me to (their) bookmarks” and leaving a URL that spells out which drugs you are trying to spam over the ‘net, then you are not going to be a subscriber for long.

Monday I worked in the deli. Tuesday I drove a cab in the rain. Wednesday the sitter wasn’t feeling well so I ended up staying with MEG and playing and chasing and cleaning up after. Today I drove cab again, and I will probably be in a cab tomorrow morning bright and early as well.

I sure hope you all will be able to join me tomorrow night on The “O” Word at 2200 MST. I may have to shift the timing of the show after this weekend (most of ya’ll get to save daylight – we have plenty here in Arizona, so we don’t) so that I stay smack between “CyberPastor and Annie B” and “Stanger 73” – provided my other activities don’t get bunched up in the process. We’ll see how it works out.

Chat ya later…

RINO Friday

January 22nd, 2010 . by Cary

As you may know, a RINO is a Republican In Name Only – that is, they claim to have an “R” following their name, but they act like DemocRATs. Perfect examples of RINOs would be Olympia Snowe (R, Maine) and John McCain (R, Arizona). Both of these RINOs claim to be of the GOP but act in support of the Democrat arty’s platform in everything they do – Snowe is very supportive of the ObamaCare bill, and if you recall a certain Amnesty program a few years ago called the McCain Kennedy Illegal Citizenship Bill …

Join me tonight at 2200 MST on The “O” Word to talk about RINOs and the danger they represent to the true Conservatives of these United States.

Chat ya later…

Stolen Valor Friday

It’s not often that I am ashamed of my actions. This is one of those rare times.

I have lead my listeners to believe that one John “Tigerbo” Dawson is a medically retired Marine Lt. Col, suffering from PTSD, and with an amazing testimony as to his miraculous come back from a horrible dance with death.

I found out earlier from a friend on Facebook that this Paper Tiger has a lot of people fooled. The details are over on Chandler’s Watch, and while Chandler is beating himself up over the lack of vetting, he is not the only one to have been taken in by the Scam Artist Formerly Known As Tigerbo. We all failed, Chandler, by accepting him at his word and not properly vetting this man. Know that you are not alone in this, and I will be addressing this issue tonight on The “O” Word at 2200 MST. If you have been taken in by this pretender, please consider calling in and sharing your Tiger’s Tale.

Well, it didn’t take very long for yesterday’s e-mail to Mayor Richard Ward to bring out hizzoner’s best: (please note that I’ve altered the e-mail addresses for anti-spam reasons)

Damn, Cary, you made me kinda sorry I named my son after you. (the Cary part)

You ask me what we have accomplished. I think my personal big accomplishment has been to make many folks better understand what my goals are. Simply stated that is to make Hurst a safer place to live.

Also, MAIG is now up to about 550 members even though the NRA scared about 50 away. It is a very long and hard battle to get things moving with the Washington crowd. That is a far cry from the four million (if that is a true figure) members of the NRA. But…we have certainly not introduced nor tried to introduce any legislation that would prevent you being able to buy any gun that you need to buy to serve you on a daily or lifetime basis.

I wish you would take the time to ask the NRA to send you a financial statement and the number of members they have. I promise you will never get it. This is the most secretive bunch you will ever encounter. MAIG list all of their members regularly and invites your questions.

So… I am going to sign off one more time with my best wishes to you and yours for a great 2010.

Richard Ward

That’s quite the claim – making Hurst a safer place to live. Almost like the appearance of MAIG has magically rendered Hurst, Texas immune to the problems of the rest of the world. Wait, there’s more:

By the way, am I the two bit Mayor you are talking about? 🙂

And one more thing, where do you live? I know it is not Hurst. See, another secret.

Show of hands, please – how many of you have heard me refer to my home as Glendale, Arizona? Thank you. My reply:

Why are you sorry you named your son Cary? Does he have the same habit of asking you questions you won’t answer?

I don’t give a rip about the NRA – believe it or not, I don’t belong to that organization. My question to you is, and remains, WHY DOES MAIG EXIST?

Mayors Against Illegal Guns. Are there folks out there on the legal side of the coin who are FOR illegal guns? That would be news to me.

How has MAIG made Hurst, Texas a safer place to live? Has it REMOVED guns from criminals hands? Nope – because criminals don’t answer pesky questionnaires and reply to official inquiries, and they certainly don’t let people tell them not to break the law. They are criminals, after all.

Thank you for the best wishes. I would like to extend the same to you and yours.

Yes, you are the two-bit mayor I referred to.

While where I live remains inconsequential to this conversation, I make no secret of where I live; I mention Glendale, Arizona quite often while blogging and on on my internet radio show.

Still waiting to find out why you belong to an illogical organization.

Cary Cartter

Let’s recap. shall we? Mayor Ward of Hurst Texas (the only mayor in Texas to join Mayors Against Illegal Guns) feels that he has made Hurst, Texas safer by simply joining an organization that is not logically needed – that is, a group of Law Enforcement Officials who are AGAINST criminals OWNING GUNS. This, in spite of the fact that there are numerous laws on the books in every state making it a crime to own a firearm obtained through other than legal means. However, these same mayors do not feel it is necessary to form an organization against illegal immigrants, or illegal prostitutes, or illegal left turns – all crimes, by their very nature, yet still not “sexy” enough to warrant vote-gathering headlines when they are railed against. By golly, claim you are against “illegal guns” and that makes headlines, doesn’t it? Because guns, by themselves, have committed so MANY crimes in recent years…

Be sure to tune in tonight for more fun and end-of-week-yet-first-of-the-year hilarity and friendship on The “O” Word at 2200 MST, coming to you live from Glendale, Arizona. But don’t tell anyone where I live – it’s a secret!

Blue Moon Round Up

December 31st, 2009 . by Cary

I know, it has been a while, hasn’t it? To refresh your memories, I will be publishing and updating as I go along, so come back and check for when it’s finished. All of these bloggers are ones that I read daily at least weekly as often as I can; they are all worth your time to at least go visit and read the one item I have highlighted. Let’s get started, shall we?

Before I get started on the round up, however, I want to give a shout-out to the mayor of Hurst, Texas, one Richard Ward, who still has not answeredf the questions I asked of him way back here. And he thought I would forget about him…

December 31, 2009
To: Richard Ward

Subject: MAIG, again!

As I was going over this year’s posts, I ran across our correspondence. Made me think of all the good times we had discussing Mayors Against Illegal Guns.

I know, you “signed off” to me, but I am kinda curious – just what has MAIG done since you joined it, besides stating the obvious (that mayors are against illegal guns)? I mean, I would hope that mayors are against ALL things illegal. Have you joined Mayors Against Illegal Prostitutes? Mayors Against Illegal Drivers? Mayors Against Illegal Immigrants? Mayors Against Illegal Left Turns?

No, you haven’t – because none of those things matter to a two-bit mayor who’s only hope of elevating his profile is to hitch on to some gun-grabbing group trying to cloak itself in pompous activity.

I am still waiting to hear from you regarding the basic premise of MAIG. Why does it need to exist, other than as a cover for some lefty gun grabbing bunch?

Basic question, please answer it. Unless you already realize that you won’t be serving another term and have decided to write me off completely.

Happy New Year!

OK, om to the round up, this time I promise!

First up is a Navy veteran, new to my blogroll, and a first FOR my blogroll – a site that is not a blog so much as it is a store. Larry Van Schuyver runs Sitting Pretty USA. He sells t-shirts, and a “portion of each sale will be donated to the VA Hospital volunteers who assist and care for our veterans daily.” Check him out, and if you are so inclined, help him out.

Alaska Steve is back from his vacation in the Lower 48, and he is promising more photos. So far, his series covers his and Goldfish’s travels through up to Boston. Can’t wait to see the rest!

GuyK has come down with a case of cellulitis in his left arm, so he wishes us a Happy New Year with the thought that his blogging will be kinda light on Charming, Just Charming.

This concludes the last Round Up of 2009 – and possibly forever. This has taken me over four hours to do, and while trying to do this AND watch my now three year old MEG, I am reminded why I don’t do these anymore. Here’s to a Happy and Healthy New Year to all of my readers, and I hope to see you in the chat room or on the phone Friday night at 2200 hours (MST) for The “O” Word.

Chat ya later…
