Texas Roads, Drivers, and Climate Change

 

As we age, funerals are more commonplace.  Saying so long to a friend or family member is tough.  Traveling the last two weeks to funerals well over 200 miles from home only to turn around and return, makes for a long day.

Driving down 30 to 20 going out west I was amazed at several things.

Speed limit 60.  What does that mean?

When I was in Drivers-Ed that meant that you did 60mph or under it but not too much under as you don’t want to impede traffic flow.

I stayed right around 60, and I was impeding traffic.  Most drivers were well over 70 and many over that.

Part of the problem I think is that there are too few speed limit signs posted on 30.  This makes it easy to forget yourself, and before you know it, you are going much faster than 60.

I have lived here for many years, and I am not stupid enough to keep up with traffic.  Just about always there is a cop outside of the city of Ft. Worth who sits there running radar. Today there was one about a tenth of a mile before the speed turned up to 65 waiting for someone to go faster.

We need more signs alerting us of the speed and a little more law enforcement visibility.

I wanted to know what person designed the roads and decided what speeds that they should be in the country?  There are really good roads with slow speed limits, and then there are these “shithole” two-lane roads that are 70.  FFS really!

If you look at the roads carefully, you will see tire marks on the turns where some driver took them too fast and didn’t make it.  Are you working with the grim reaper to get the soul count up, or are you just that stupid?

My favorite is this, you are on this two-lane pothole-laden road doing 70 as to not get run over, in the blink of an eye, the speed goes from 70 to 30.  Yes Barney Fife or the 80-year-old version of him is sitting there waiting with his number 2 pencil and big chief tablet waiting for you.

“What does it cost to go 70 in a 30?” 

You got to be kidding me Cross Plains!  Is that how you generate revenue? Some attorney needs to file a class action lawsuit against the town of Cross Plains for this practice.   I am damned serious because they are not the only cities or towns that do this.  Tickets should not be revenue generators.

Now we have the good folks in Arlington Texas.  On a Saturday mind you with the temperature of 113 degrees on Hwy30, traffic comes to a standstill.  “Why?”

Piss poor planning on the engineers or contractors part leaving road construction idle in an area that is congested anyway.  Arlington should be pissed as they host the Cowboys, the Rangers and then there are Six Flags and a water park all right there.

It took 45 minutes to go less than one mile. Never mind that it is 113 in the shade and never mind that peoples tempers were even hotter but, if you really are pushing climate change wouldn’t thinking things through like idle construction be a good place to start?

Are you only serious about climate change when you can sell carbon credits?

How much Carbon monoxide do you think tens of thousands of cars idling for 45 minutes each puts into the atmosphere?  Now factor in the large trucks billowing out black diesel fumes. Arlington, you can do better. The Rangers and Cowboys should be pissed.

“How can you do better?”

“How about a flashing sign at the 820 split warning of the 45-minute wait and you might consider taking 820 to 183 or stay on I 20 or take some other alternate routes? ”  With all the tax revenue you collect how about doing something constructive with it. Save a tree or the planet or the climate! How about saving me from my head exploding! What the hell happened with common sense?”

One fellow who also sat through that mess passed the traffic doing over 100 mph in a poorly maintained car.  Zipping in and out of vehicles the back of his vehicle swayed violently many times as he drove very erratically.  I see those guys on crotch rockets doing that but, that car is not built for that nonsense and he will not only kill himself but probably someone else.

Hello officer Smith, it might be a good idea to have officers around the areas past the congestion like that, as people will be pissed and late and might be tempted to do stupid stuff, like this clown.

KRLD where were you with traffic on the 8 ’s? 

To round out the fun of today in the 113-degree heat I want to speak to you truckers out there.  Now maybe this will never get to you but just in case…Put the damned phones up!

It is bad enough when cars are all over the road because unlike the rest of humanity they are more capable of texting and driving at the same time, FFS!.  Cars are not driverless yet.  Trucks, on the other hand, I genuinely do not understand.  You cannot get on the highway and not see it.  18 wheelers all over the damned road.  When you pass them, you can see them with the phone in hand.  FFS, you are going to kill someone with that thing and while you may be ok with it, the person or persons you kill I assure you will not be ok.

Why don’t trucking companies have cameras in their vehicles so they can spot idiots like this and take them off the road?

I don’t know the answer to the problem but, I have an idea…

I would encourage people to get a dash cam and when you capture something like this, post it to youtube and tag the company that the truck represents. Now if you have a passenger, then they can use their camera and get it.  If you are driving and you do not have a dashcam or passenger, do not become part of the problem, just steer clear of the maniac and hope he or she doesn’t kill someone.

In summary: if you are upset with climate change, do something about having tens of thousands of car sitting in one place idling for hours on end.  Plan your construction projects better.  If you are the engineer who has anything to do with traffic lights, synchronize them when possible, so cars do not have to sit and idle on busy motorways.

You who figure out what the speed should be on the road, my god, put some common sense thought into the process! The inconsistencies boggle the mind.  It is almost as if you tossed a dart at a bunch of numbers when you were planning it.

You need more speed limit signs on 30 and 20.  You also need more police presence driving the posted speed limit setting the example.  When a car doing the speed limit is impeding traffic, that is a bad thing and indicative of piss poor planning on someone’s part.  More signs!

Finally my last bitch for the day…. Road construction zones.  I have traveled this great nation to all states but one. I must tell you that when I see these bogus road construction signs, fines double and there is nobody around or in many cases, not one spade of dirt overturned it just smells of extortion. Yes, Extortion.  To take miles of a perfectly good highway and have everyone do 55 instead of 75 only because some orange signs are posted needs to stop.  Tickets should not be a source of revenue.

I would call on the state legislature to introduce a bill making this practice illegal.  I would also ask to have the lower speeds in constructions zones not enforced on days when the workers are not present, again, a flashing sign.

If two-lane roads in BFE can be 70, I think a stretch of highway with no workers present can be 70 too.

Folks it is just common sense, and we seem to be short on supply…

For those of you who follow me, as I am a writer, I wanted to tell you that my latest thriller is finished.  I love it!

The name of the work is called “Presidential Assassins.”  The manuscript will now go to editing, and the cover art still has to be created.

The story is so good, you’re going to love it!

Follow me here on WordPress to keep up with my thought of the day.  Sorry if you don’t like my terse tone but my god, it is time someone uses that gray matter between their ears for something other than to hold up their hat.

How do you feed your characters?

If you don’t live your life you will be writing about someone else’s.

One e-mail that resurfaces from time to time is, where do you get these ideas?  I alluded to this not long ago in a blog such as this one. You must live your life!

I get in trouble with some of my friends when I tell them I don’t watch TV. “But there is this show or that show, and this one is funny, and that show is stupid but worth watching… Pffft.

One of the most painful things that I do is leave my house and the keyboard but guess what.  I must, and so must you.

Writers are one of the few people who I know that enjoy being alone.  

I know way too many who find new reasons to not leave their home.  There is the laundry, or the kitchen floor needs mopping or pick an excuse.   My go-to excuse is “I have too much work.”

“Folks, you must live your life.  This moment will not come around again ever!”

Yesterday afternoon I closed up my office, threw a bag in the car and headed to East Texas.   I love East Texas.  From the Canton trade days to the small little towns with less than a thousand people, they all have a story.

Most of the time the people that you speak with are friendly and helpful and don’t make too much fun of accents.  “Not that they have room to talk.”

Checking out some antique malls or “junk stores” was on the list as well as quaint little places to eat.  Today was ride the train day.

texas train

There is this train that takes you from Rusk Texas to Palestine Texas with an hour layover and then takes you back.   It is a 25-mile journey through the piney woods and then 25 miles back.

New paint!
This was the first time they pulled the train with this engine.

As I sat there listening to people talk I heard stories that might make it into my novels.  Today had very few young people as it was a school day.  Love kids, just not what I call relaxing to have them running up and down the aisles.

On the way back to Rusk they offered to stop after the main bridge and allow those of us “of age” and ability, to exit the train and enter the train without those little step platforms a photo op of the drive by.

Now, we got some excellent pictures.  A few that wandered a little far from the track I feel sure will have discovered as I write this what a Texas Chigger is.  One young lady wearing capris went off in knee tall weeds… Others were too busy looking at the train to see where they were walking.

I, on the other hand, know to look where my feet are going.

ants

These guys were about .8cm in length, and if you stepped on them, in no time at all, you would be aware that you were not welcome.  They are known as Fire Ants, and there is a good reason for that.

It was a beautiful day and a pleasant journey.  I enjoyed getting to know some new folks, and I hope that nobody tonight has little red spots on their body causing them to scratch their hide off.

Oh, I feed my characters by living my life and talking with people.  Everyone has a story.  Can you meld what you learn into what you are writing?  I was mulling over a story about train robbers, but that too has been done to death.

We Hold these Truths to be self-evident …

I was amazed to read that Louis Lerner wanted her testimony sealed.  The head of the IRS that targeted conservative groups during the 2012 election process now wants her statements sealed as she is afraid for herself and her family if the public were to have access to them.

Let’s think about this one.  She used the most powerful agency in the United States, the IRS to swing the outcome of the 2012 Election to the Democrats, and she is only now worried about her actions?  The New York Times in a show of actual journalism should publish the entire transcript on the front page!

If Hillary had won would the public know about this blatant attack on democracy by our own government?

She is a criminal and has forfeited her rights to ask to have her crimes hidden. Why is she not behind bars? Her safety from upset citizens should be the least of her worries!  I bet Martha Stewart is pissed.  Her crimes were child’s play in comparison to that of this person.

CNN and MSNBC have been talking Russia for the last ten months, and now we have actual proof that the IRS targeted conservative groups to stop them from helping Romney and other conservative candidates in 2012. Yes, that is collusion with the then current Obama administration.

It makes no difference which side of the political divide you find yourself, you too should be aghast by this, and demand that people like Louis Lerner are exposed and prosecuted.  One of the things that make the US such a great place to live, is we have fair elections.  Don’t  we?  Are they truly fair?

Hillary said in an interview not long ago that if Fox News had been around when her husband was running, he would not have won.  Now let that sink in for a moment.  What she is inferring is that Fox news is not fair and balanced, that they are not journalists.

What she really is saying or admitting to, is that they would have investigated his every dealing, and just possibly talked more about his predatory sexual predilections, which have dominated the news these last few weeks.  Women do not like men who are in power to rape them.   I know of no woman who likes being raped in the first place!  Had Fox news been around then, she is right; he would have been exposed as the creep that he is, and Monika would not be a household name associated with a semen stain on her blue dress!

The larger question is, where were ABC, CBS and CNN and MSNBC?  Why were they not on top of this story?

Fox news like all news agencies has journalists who are biased, but if you look at their stories, they will call out the Republicans as well as the Democrats.  Do they play to their base, of course, but they do report more middle of the road, than does their competition.  This fact has been statistically proven, it is just not my opinion.

If it is truly about money and market share one would think that CNN would be more middle of the road instead of so far left leaning.  If Fox is doing so well, why not lean right?

Negative stories garner more attention so spinning the news in a negative format sells more air time.  CNN and MSNBC are two of the companies who have more negative coverage on our current president than anyone in that market. If you hate Trump and want to feel good, watch them.  If you would like the actual truth you might look elsewhere.  Russia Today is more unbiased than they are.

News like anything else is all about ratings.  Ratings attract advertisers. Commercials pay for the airtime that the talking heads use to pontificate on their particular take on the stories of the day.  CNN and MSNBC I don’t believe are as biased for political reasons that many think that they are.  What they are doing is playing to their base, keeping their ratings alive through spewing out reasons to hate Trump.  Emotions are easy tools to manipulate you with.  People love bad news about someone that they do not like.

“Gees TW that is a harsh claim!”

Really? If a football team that you don’t like has a key player that is injured, do you not get some feeling of joy from that as now your team which will be playing them next might have an advantage?  It is our secret but, think about it.  We love bad news when it is about someone we don’t like.

Not only do we eat up bad news but we will more readily spread the bad news on social media if it will play to our base.  That is a sad commentary on the human race, don’t you think?

If you have made it this far, good for you.

The only way to fix a problem is to admit that it exists and then identify it.  Once you can identify it, you can name it and figure out how to dismantle it. People who are what I call “asleep” don’t want to hear it.  They certainly don’t want to read it.

The truth of the matter is that if people are biased one way or the other, they do not want to hear opposing thoughts. It does not make a difference if it is the truth, they don’t want to listen to it.

Still don’t believe me???

How many times have you heard some parent say, “not my kid!”  Maybe you have said it yourself, “my kid would never do that!”

Some good friends of mine said that about their kid.  It is called denial… When they heard that he was seen doing drugs with some other children, they asked him about it. “Oh no mom, when I saw what they were doing I left them, I will never even see them again!  Drugs are stupid just like you always say mom.” They believed the lies because to quote Jack Nicholson; they could not handle the truth.

Two weeks later they went up to his room to get him up, as he was late for Church.  They found him dead in his bed.  Cause of death, he drowned in his own vomit due to overdosing on the very drugs that he denied he was taking.  True story, very sad. I grieved with them but, I knew the problem then as I do now.  We don’t want to hear the truth!

It is our nature not to want to hear that which we find repugnant unless it is about the other guy.  The scream from his mother was indicative of the looks on the faces from the Hillary supporters the night that she lost to Trump.  Ten months later we still have a divided country because many cannot handle the truth.

Some perfectly dishonest politicians are still trying to float impeachment proceedings to play to their base so they will get re-elected.  It is foolish showmanship but some hateful folks out there will buy it.

Hillary was a flawed candidate and never should have been the DNC pick!  They underestimated the appeal of a populist and were more worried about Bernie, than Trump.  The mere fact that she rigged the election to screw Bernie is more than the proof you should need.  The Billy Bass tape was their ace in the hole.  They were wrong.

Today we read that many of the FBI agents that were investigating Hillary’s emails were huge supporters of hers.  They hid the evidence against her, rather than do their jobs.

Government officials just like white cops cannot be prejudiced against the other political side, or different colors of humans.  The tapestry of America is weaved together with all different kinds of humans who appear and think a little differently.  It is called diversity.  From race to political affiliation they are all necessary and make up the whole of who we are as a people, Americans!

I don’t have to hold your beliefs to be kind and respectful of you as a human.  The converse is also true.

Why is that concept so hard to embrace?

We hear all this talk about racism and bias but, we do nothing about it other than perpetuating the atmosphere that begat it in the first place.

  • Journalists are to report the events, not create them.
  • The IRS is to enforce the tax laws as they are, not make them up for different groups.
  • Judges are to enforce the laws and the constitution, applying them equally to all with a blind eye to race, sex or political affiliation. They are not to change the meaning of the constitution for some political agenda.
  • Police are to protect and to serve without any racial partiality or bigotry.

You the people, the citizens, are who pay them, they work for you.

You cannot fix what you cannot or refuse to identify.  With many, it is a heart issue.  If you do not believe what I am telling you, and I get that many will want to write and tell me how full of it I am, do this first.

If you are a Fox news person, watch CNN and MSNBC.  I know that you will be angry and upset at watching the hate and contempt from the other side but listen for any truths.  Could there be some truth to what they are saying?

Mika Brzezinski was caught on camera talking about what they do.  She said and I quote, “We tell the American people what to think.”  That my friends is arrogance run amuck! No honey, you report the facts whatever they are period.  It is called journalism.  Anything else is called propaganda!

If you are in the camp of CNN and MSNBC and of course Bill Mahar and the other nightly comedians that pass off their acts as news, you watch Fox News and do the same exercise.  Could there be any truth in what any of the folks are saying?  Sit through the evening line up and make notes. Yes, watch Hannity as well.  He is entertaining at least.

When you are all sick of the biases that you will have no doubt spotted, go and find OAN news.  The news media that both sides of the spectrum hate.  They are doing whatever they can to get them removed from the cable lineup.  Why???  They merely report the facts, no spin.  Some of their talent is rather sophomoric but, the facts are just the facts.  You are smart enough to make up your own minds.

The press is indeed our eyes and ears on the goings on in our country.  We depend on them to report the facts.  We need the true facts so we can make informed decisions.  Folks we are not getting that.  Journalism is all but dead in this country, and we as a people need to demand better.  How?  Stop watching them, watch or listen to OAN.  Support agencies that provide the unbiased truth.

Back in the early days of civilization, there was one entity which all came from. Do you know what it was?  No, not god but close, it was the Catholic Church.  They were the spiritual leader of all the people.  They were the teachers of everything that they thought you needed to know.  They were also the government which would have you killed if you defied them.  I kid you not, this was one powerful bunch of people and the citizens were slaves to them.  They did tell them what to think, with death or prison being the option for anyone that dared not fall into lockstep agreement.  Did you know it was illegal in the day to own your own bible?  It is true, can you guess why?

They did not want you thinking for yourself much like it was illegal to educate slaves in early American history, the same was true back during the early church.  Today in N. Korea this is still true.  Not the church but the government is the ultimate supreme authority with brainwashing as their main industry.

How do we fix this country???

We start by hearing and accepting the truth no matter how ugly it is. You cannot fix what you don’t acknowledge.  It is like going to the doctor with pain, and he tells you that you have cancer.  Do you say ok, I have cancer what can we do about it?  Or, do you say, that is not possible and leave his office not dealing with the diagnosis?  Many in this country are leaving cancer untreated, which will be the death of this country as we know it.  Many who have pain will not go to the doctor for fear that it is cancer.  They just don’t want to know the truth.

Learn to look for and embrace the truth no matter what it is.  If some facts are unbelievable, check many sources before you re-post on social media a lie, perpetrated by some other country or a hate-filled moron.  Snopes is not a reliable source of information BTW.

These ANTIFA criminals are one more symptom of this cancer.  They believe that what they are doing is anti-fascism, but in reality, they are the fascist and also criminals. They have bought the lies from hate-filled professors who are spewing it and are acting on it. All they have to do is trigger them emotionally, and they will respond.  Their actions will seem just, so that they will commit to them and act on them.  They will destroy their own campus and prevent the very free speech that they say that they are fighting for.  They are in fact misguided youth under the control of evil people.

The men who flew the planes into the twin towers killing thousands felt that their actions were just, and were determined to their cause.  They too believed in their mission.  There is no difference. If you think that there is, you are mistaken.

Civilized debate on the topics are necessary, and that cannot start until you are ready to listen!  You must be willing to hear that you have cancer.  Until then, the violence and unrest will continue, and the barbarians both in DC and in positions of power elsewhere will continue to prevail.  The useful idiots of the power brokers will fight their battles, helping cancer to win.  The power brokers must be identified and held accountable. Mrs. Lerner is one and needs to be behind bars.  An example needs to make out of her and her ilk.

Her testimony needs to be on the front page of some paper, that has a smidgeon of integrity left.

As always I am interested in your take on my blogs.  Spending much time writing them, it is always nice to at least get a like or a new follower.  Feel free to disagree but please keep in mind that I ignore truculence or perfidy of any sort.

My novels are just about always uplifting and enjoyable, so if you are not already a reader, please check one or more out.  From Science fiction to romance to erotic naughtiness, it is all out there for you to enjoy.

Thanks for the follows and re-tweets.  While much of what I do is for you, this is a marketing tool for my novels, and I unabashedly admit it.  These blogs are full of useful information, or thoughts or ideas to pontificate over around the water cooler or dinner table.

My novels are certainly more entertaining and are selling nicely worldwide. Be one of my followers here so you can say you knew me when.  My goal is to quit the day job and write full time.  Number #26 is almost finished, and then we have to decide what the subject matter will be for #27  … Ideas?  What would you like to see or read?

Churches and Other Soft Targets Why?

Every time I go into a place that is a “gun free zone,” I shudder, as I know that I am now entering a soft target.  The world we live in is not our grandfathers’ world.

Hollywood has been pumping out nightmares on elm street, long enough that they have skewed the thinking of average people.  Video games are incredibly graphic and violent, where killing with some sort of gun or other imaginary weapon is glorified.  These games are simulators for death and destruction. The movies are so graphic that for all we know, some of these kids could have PTSD!

The kid who killed all of those in Sandy Hook was so “efficient,” because he practiced day in and day out with such a “game.” Do you really want to buy that game for your 8-year-old?

Between the two, and the lack of morality that pervades our music industry, or our entertainment industry as a whole, we have the perfect storm.

Many on Twitter are asking WHY?  Blaming guns and gun control and other talking points, pinning the blame squarely on the GOP and the NRA. That is not true and does not help.  It deflects away from the real problems I outline in the previous paragraph.

Look no further than Chicago for all the proof that you need regarding laws and gun control.

The trolls are out there as well pumping out hate on both sides, trying to divide us as a people even further. “Never let good crises go to waste.”  Manipulate the masses with their emotions, strike while the iron is hot, for tomorrow they will forget about it.

It has only been five weeks and we have stopped talking about the 58 killed in Vegas.  We still don’t know the motive and the case seems cold.  There is a total lack of information about this case.

Just possibly they should look at mental health.

Mental health is the issue.  The vitriol between the politicians trying to paint the other in the worst light possible is part of the problems we face. Actors and Actresses who deny any complicity in this depravity calling for the NRA’s head on a platter are not helping.

Simple facts are that logical debate will prompt thinking people to devise solutions.  Emotional rhetoric will prompt some into action.  Actions based on emotions and biases are unpredictable and just about always a bad thing.

The recent advertisement in the Virginia governor’s race depicting the republican as a man in a pickup with a rebel flag running down immigrants, with his pickup is such a hateful, vile, despicable, trashy, indefensible ad, that it boggles my mind.  Who thinks up this shit! Not only are they attacking the Republican candidate, but the entire south!  It is a lie!

You want to see the south, look at those people grieving their losses, that is the south!

“Use fear and terror to manipulate the masses.”  Who in their right mind would vote for such a contemptible man, that would approve that kind of garbage!

This shooter, not unlike the person in Las Vegas, was a disturbed individual.  He had a long history of abusive behavior and yet somehow he got a weapon meant for killing.

While a good guy with a gun prevented him from creating more carnage in that small town, we should ask the question why, or how, did this 26-year-old have such a weapon?

My heart breaks for those people.  It truly does.  We are still reeling from the evil in New York, not to mention the Las Vegas shooter, and now this.  Is this the new norm?

Soft targets need to do what it takes to, not be soft targets.

We can no longer afford the luxury of leaving our houses and cars unlocked.  We cannot afford the luxury of not being armed.  Had those people not checked their guns at the door, I dare say the outcome would have looked different than it did.

This guy hated his X mother in law, who was an attendee at that church.  He probably knew that they would be unarmed. Coward!

Actors and other elites who call out for Gun control have bodyguards who are armed. I discard their arguments, as they are the ultimate hypocrite, who have no dog in this fight.  It matters not to the wealthy what laws are passed, as they will find a way around them.  They live in their ivory towers behind large gates and issue mandates in the way of song, stage, or tweet, of how the little people should conduct themselves.

You are out of touch with the “little people” and have no idea what they go through just to make ends meet.  Obviously, I am not talking about every thespian, just the activist who promote their brand of exclusive snobbery!  “Let them eat cake kind of activist.”

Similarly, it matters not to the criminal element what laws are passed, as they don’t care about laws.

Laws only affect the law-abiding.  Let that sink in.

When there is such an event with bad people and guns, the police rarely are there to stop them. Usually, they show up in time to write up the carnage and start an investigation while the bodies are being removed by the coroner.

This is true in this small town, and in most home invasions.

A good Samaritan put an end to it! A good guy with a gun!

“If you can pass a background check and are not the ruling class of elites, you should probably buy a gun, and learn how to use it.”

Some person on twitter posted that “those who were killed probably voted for 45, and Karma is a bitch!”

This is the mindset of some out there.  I could not believe that someone would write such a thing but by looking at his posts, he truly is a demented person and has a long history of such.  He is also ANTIFA.

Fascist who pretend to be anti-fascist.

Does our MSM have any culpability? I think so.  I think they promote the hate and bigotry that exists in this country and possibly in other countries as they are all acting like petulant children.  Is this the result of generation X in control of some form of power?

I listened to MSNCB for twenty minutes before I heard the word Russia yesterday in the height and fervor of this event. They actually went 20 minutes without talking about Trump and Russia!

The sad part of this is, between CNN, Fox, and MSNBC, MSNBC had the best coverage of the events as they were unfolding. I wish the MSM would stop trying to create the news, and just report it!  So here are some question to find the answers to MSM…

  • How did he get a gun?
  • Were there any warning signs, notes, behaviors etc that someone should have noticed?
  • Did this kid play violent video games?
  • What happened in his military career, should any of those years have told us anything?
  • Did he take mind-altering drugs, prescribed or otherwise?
  • Did he suffer from any mental aberration such as depression?
  • Who were his friends?
  • Who were his Facebook friends?
  • Who did he associate with both at work and after hours?
  • Was this preventable in any way and if so how?

There are no words that will make things better, ever!

If you see something say something!

If you have a few extra dollars I know they could use it.
