  1. Fritz Checking Out

    All, just wanted to assure you this is not a joke. I am fritz's daughter-in-law. His wife wanted me to get the information regarding his passing to those he spent so much time with. If you are in the South Texas area, his obituary will run Monday and Tuesday in the Victoria Advocate. He was involved in a single car car accident just a mile from home.
  2. Fritz Checking Out

    We just wanted to let everyone know that fritz passed away Saturday night. He truly enjoyed spending time with everyone on this message board.
  3. Election 2008

    "After watching the Republican Debates in Des Moines and hearing Keys call the other Republicans "frauds" for abandoning their Republican principles of less government and lower taxes he is my man. " Fine. Good for you. But when he is weeded out in the primaries, who will be "your man"? BTW, let us not forget our wager on the draft thing. In fact, let us double it if you include "your man" Keyes getting the nomination. fritz
  4. Election 2008

    Brad, You are right. He will not get elected, because folks will not support what he stands for. He stands for what a lot of the folks here stand for, but even some of you distrust him. Get ready for Hillary Clinton as your next president. It is what you are opening the door for. Live with it. Or, like a former poster said "If you don't like it, leave it". I believe that is what we have been telling the illegal immigrants here who want preferential treatment, because they only came here for "a better life". I would like one myself! Karl, I give Keyes less than a snowman's chance in hell. Any other suggestions out there? fritz
  5. I Really Despise John Mccain

    Hey, You didn't have to post it that many times to convince me. I agree, he has the same chance of getting elected as a snowman in hell. Who is your favorite candidate? fritz
  6. Election 2008

    OK, One name, one candidate that is a republican (like most of you want), and who used to be a libertarian (who the rest of you want). Make sense? He has been serving and getting reelected as a US Representative from Texas. Happens to be from the Matagorda County area, along the coast. I am being represented by a Mexican named Hinojosa, because I live one county outside his area. BTW, his name is Ron Paul. And he is running for President. fritz
  7. Mall Shooting Occured In "gun Free Zone"

    "Whether our legal system works or doesn't, its surely makes the lawyers lots of money... " And that is why there will always be a "grey area". Many politicians started out as lawyers. I believe Hillary is one of them. And I am sure we can all name a few more. Put the power to change laws in the hands of a lawyer, and--------- fritz
  8. Mall Shooting Occured In "gun Free Zone"

    "As I recall when I took my CHL class, I believe I was told that the law had recently been amended to allow CHL holders to carry on a public school campus as long as we were outside as long as the students were inside. Meaning, if you happened to be carrying while walking down the sidewalk and the bell rang and students came outside to change classes, you'd be in violation of the law. My instructor did not recommend carrying while on campus." Jason, you know damned well that Texas law will never clearly define a single thing, much less the carry on campus deal. fritz
  9. Election 2008

    "fritz, is he really a friend of that skunk in New York??? Brad " Well, if you consider that Perry has endorsed Rudy (the skunk), then I guess he may be called a friend. Or, in politics as this is all about, strange friendships come about by schittasses getting together to screw the rest of us. And to just get ahead in their illicit business. The NRA backed Perry for governor. I dropped my long-time membership after that, and sent Wayne a lettter (not an email which is never read). It seems a letter opposing the NRA is never read either. Now, my question is----Will the NRA back a Rudy/Rick ticket? If they do, it is committing suicide. Who will the NRA back this time around? Or will they just keep the hell out of it as they should? I, and all Texans, have already seen what "their" man is really made of. I won't mention the ingredient he is made of, but it starts with "s" and ends with "t". fritz
  10. Election 2008

    I'm in agreement with the above posters on the national level elections. We have a piss-pore slate of candidates, if one has the grace to call them that, this time around. But, remember what happened in Texas last election. A governor that had promised to put a lot of farmers and ranchers out of business with his super corridor, was reelected by a 39% vote. In a state where there are many farmers and ranchers that vowed to fight him on it. He won, with 39% of the votes cast for him. And he has hinted at running again in the future (that is unless his buddy, the New York City fellow gets nominated and wants him to be his VP). What a slate that would be! Our Senator, Kay Hutchison, may run for governor next time (she could have easily defeated him last year). Texas republicans, and members of the NRA (that backed Perry), you got what you voted for. And let us not leave out the naive third-party backers. You got what you voted for. And now you (and me) have to live with the schittass while he combs his pretty hair and puts tacks on a map where he wants to put people out of business. It's all in his hands now. You elected him! That's what third-party votes got us, Az. fritz
  11. Mall Shooting Occured In "gun Free Zone"

    Yeah, here in Texas all schools are considered "gun free zones", and it is illegal to have one anywhere within a certain distance. Something like 1,000 feet. So, it is illegal to park in a school parking lot if you have a shotgun or deer rifle in your truck (like most ranchers do). Now, in order for the school district to get an 8 million dollar bond passed, they promised to allow the new building to be available to citizens to walk in (as in malls) and not have to drive to the nearest mall which is 35 miles away. But, if you want to park in their parking lot before entering the new expensive building, you must be sure there is no gun in your vehicle. That rules out the use of "walking" in their building by me and others who regularly have a rifle on the truck rack. Unless you want to walk a quarter mile to get to the "walking" building. Makes a lot of sense doesn't it? Of course, that was just a half-assed attempt to get more votes for the unneeded building in the first place. I wonder how many people will actually get any benefit out of our eight million dollars. fritz
  12. Telling It Like It Is

    If John Adams were running for president today, I would vote for him. Unfortunately we have a bunch of clowns running, that wouldn't even be able to entertain the audience at a county fair. "Facts". Now, that is very important for a candidate to quote. But it don't necessarily get votes. And I, along with a lot of other voters, question some of the so-called "facts" espoused by those biased in their views. Anyone can turn a "fact" into something completely differently. Do you believe everything you read as "fact"? And Karl---please don't ask me for the definition of the word "fact". Look it up yourself. You probably have a different dictionary than me. fritz
  13. Friendship

    Well, at least in this person's view------- Are you tired of those sissy "friendship" poems that always sound good, but never actually come close to reality? Well, here is a series of promises that actually speak of true friendship. You will see no cutesy little smiley faces on this card - Just the stone cold truth Of great friendship. 1. When you are sad -- I will help you get drunk and plot revenge against the sorry who made you sad. 2. When you are blue -- I will try to dislodge whatever is choking you. 3. When you smile -- I will know you are plotting something that I must be involved in. 4. When you are scared -- I will rag on you about it every chance I get. 5. When you are worried -- I will tell you horrible stories about how much worse it could be, until you quit whining. 6. When you are confused -- I will use little words. 7. When you are sick -- I will tell you to s tay the hell away from me until you are well again. I don't want whatever you have. 8. When you fall -- I will point and laugh at your clumsy ass. This is my oath.... I pledge it to the end. "Why?" you may ask. "Because you're my friend!" Friendship is like peeing your pants: Everyone can see it, but only you can feel the true warmth. fritz

    And even with the proper clip (which used to be a dime a dozen) there can still be feeding problems. Oswald was extremely lucky. Or was he? fritz
  15. A Christmas Story

    A Christmas Story 'Twas the night before Christmas--Old Santa was pissed. He cussed out the elves and threw down his list. Miserable little brats, ungrateful little jerks. I have a good mind to scrap the whole works! I've busted my ass for damn near a year, Instead of 'Thanks Santa'--what do I hear? The old lady bitches cause I work late at night. The elves want more money--The reindeer all fight. Rudolph got drunk and goosed all the maids. Donner is pregnant and Vixen has AIDS. And just when I thought that things would get better Those assholes from the IRS sent me a letter, They say I owe taxes--if that ain't damn funny Who the hell ever sent Santa Claus any money? And the kids these days--they all are the pits They want the impossible--Those mean little shits I spent a whole year making wagons and sleds Assembling dolls...Their arms, legs and heads I made a ton of yo yo's--No request for them, They want computers and robots...they think - I'm IBM! Flying through the air...dodging the trees Falling down chimneys and skinning my knees I'm quitting this job there's just no enjoyment I'll sit on my fat ass and draw unemployment. There's no Christmas this year now you know the reason, I found me a blonde. I'm going SOUTH for the season fritz --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
