School is important, kids.
This confirms what I already thought. Most people out there are idiots.
Great news this morning as a good Samaritan actually posted the 500K bail for Justin carters release and he has gone home. I believe he still has to go before the judge but at the very least he can get some peace at the moment. This isn’t over though and I can tell you I hope the ones responsible for this reprehensible act also will have to face a judge before we close the book on this.The thing that worries me is he isn’t the first and is sure not to be the last to be mistreated this way. I even read a story about a guy who had posted his rap lyrics on facebook and they also caused him of making terrorist threats. This has to be addressed and stopped now. I think we have more to fear from the fearful afraid of their own shadows people that from terrorists anyway. We have seen more injustice and violations of human rights and more people actually hurt all in the name of anti-terrorism and the name of school massacres than the actual events themselves. Thank you to whoever you are to help this person in need and heres hoping this will not end until the demand for changes in these so called anti-terrorist policies are answered and the laws changed.
Sorry I haven’t updated lately….I’ve been stuck in the haymow piling hay. My hands are sooo sore! See, each load of hay has about 110 bales of hay on it…unless its our “big hay wagon” that one holds about 150 per load. We have put up19 loads so far. My dad ( whom I work for) can’t pike hay anymore…his being 73 being his excuse. So that means that for the last week I’ve been piling all that hay. I am so tired!!!!
See, the funny thing about farming is that either you get too much rain….or not enough. You get too much sun….or not enough. Then there are the cold years. Years when in the dead of summer you still need a coat. Those years suck.
But….thats farming.and you need to remember…if there weren’t crazy people like me out there working the fields and milking the cows…there would be a lot of hungry people out there.

Now I’ve been down in the southern parts of Kentucky in the middle of July and I kno it gets very hot n humid there. You literally feel like you are melting….and with how much sweat that comes off ya it looks like it too!
I don’t live down there. I live in Wisconsin. A place where there use to be mild amounts of humidity. You may have been hot, but you never felt like you were melting. All this has changed in the last 15 years.
Last night I kept dreaming I was drowning. I’d wake up…not drowning but inspite if having 2 fans on being covered in sweat! So it honestly felt like I was melting! Now I can sympathize with all the snowmen kids build each year. Melting isn’t fun. And with weather patterns that keep changing it’s looking like its just gonna get worse.
So what do u think? Soggy air equal melting people?
Free Justin Carter or you may be next I am putting this on my blog not knowing what else to do. Here is a clear violation of a fellow human beings rights that needs to be adressed not only for his sake but for the rest of us as well. If you don’t already know the story, Justin is a gamer from Texas who was having a conversation with another player on the game League of Legends. Basically he made a crack about shooting up a school and retracted it with just joking.
Now while I cannot condone the nature of what Justin said, since I am for encouraging younger gamers to be better that, the consequences that Justin has faced are just unacceptable. Justin has been in jail for 5 months and has had a nightmarish experience to the point of being ready to kill himself . Now some people might think (as I have seen by peoples comments) That it serves him right. But the problem here is the only thing he is being jailed for is being offensive. He did not actually threaten anybody as it was never directed to anybody that should of felt threatened. This was a joke (term used loosely) Between him and another person that in context was obviously not meant seriously.Imagine you were talking to a friend of yours and talking about someone that mad you upset recently. It is not uncommon to use an expression “Oh I could just kill em for that” Just as a turn of phrase. Now imagine someone overheard you and put you in jail for attempted murder because of that expression used.That is exactly the same ridiculous situation Justin finds himself in. I’ve heard thing like “well you just don’t say things like that now” Ive heard the same about how we have to act different and give up more freedom because “It’s different now”. I take issue with the idea that because evil terrorists or crazy gunman cause death and mayhem that I must now walk on eggshells and watch what I say to avoid jail time. Yes because of the tragedies that happened what Justin said is in a completely context now, but all that means is he is should be considered jerk , Told to not be a jerk, discouraged and allowed to grow out of being a jerk,not be hauled off and jailed for being a jerk. No this is not acceptable. And something that people need to realize is if this is allowed than any of us could be next. Not that long ago a young student ended being arrested for DRAWING a PICTURE of a gun. The teacher was not even sure it was a gun being drawn.Did the teacher call or talk to the parents to discuss her concerns? No, in fact the first thing she did was called the police. http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2012/12/19/superintendent-drawings-of-weapons-led-to-new-jersey-students-arrest/ And another boy of 11 a similar thing happened http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1359646/Boy-11-arrested-drawing-stick-figure-gun-writing-Teachers-die.html Should we be concerned about a child’s violent drawings, probably, should we then cuff them and send them to jail, no that makes no sense.How is it people are cuffing our kids and arresting people who have done absolutely nothing? I’ll tell you. This is the exact definition of witch hunting. Witch hunting was sanctioned and carried out when the people making decisions were extremely uneducated and stupid and reacted to things that scared them with emotion and fear rather than reason and logic. The police and teachers and lawmakers are standing behind these idiotic decisions saying obviously it is the right course with the way things are these days when thinking people see that obviously these people are dangerous and need to be held accountable for the unnecessary hurt they have caused. The parallel cane be drawn from the witch hunt idea that if the accused lives they have used witchcraft and are guilty and if they die it is gods will and they did what had to be done to protect themselves from the bad witches that are everywhere. submit that it is not enough just to release Justin, which must be done. But it is time to demand the punishment of the imbecilic witch hunters who are hurting one person after another to make sure that there are consequences for hurting the innocent and violating the constitution. It is time they start facing the jail time they put innocent people through. If this isn’t dealt with soon, You may be next. Please sign the petition here
We are no longer a nation “for the people.” We are now a nation against the people.

Ok, I milk cows in a stanchon barn …that means that they are tied up facing the wall with their butts toward the middle. There is a gutter for them to erm, releave themselves into. Well most miss the gutter and cow poo is honestly quite slippery. I slipped into the gutter but my foot, right under my toes hit the edge of the lower part(the cows are a couple inches higher than the walkway. I was stepping out from in between two cows.) And as I wear soft sneakers due to comfort…..I am now hobbling around.
Curse you cows that miss the gutter!!!!
