IslandDrumz

Welcome to our little slice of paradise! Clear Lake Shores is probably one of the best kept secrets in the entire Bay Area. Yes we are an island. We are surrounded by Clear Lake, Jarbo Bayou and the Lazy Bend canals. Plug this in to Google Maps and you'll see what I mean 29.32' by 95.01' We are about half way between Galveston Island and the city of Houston and located in north Galveston county. I will try to keep us up on all the goings on that we can walk, boat, bike or drive our golf carts to. Very few things pi$$ me off but one of them is wasting my precious time. I'll try not to waste yours. Enjoy. ab

National Winnie the Pooh Day

And National Peking Duck Day. Did you know it's the National Dish of China? Me either.

For the d-bags "boycotting" the innauguration, You are not boycotting shit. You are cowards. Just because you don't like what is happening you are going to take your ball and go home. Go. This Country is great enough to get by without you. The time honored ceremony of a peaceful transfer of power of the greatest nation on earth does not deserve you. You have no honer. To advertise as a paying position for anyone willing to disrupt the ceremony shines the light on your shame. You and your ilk are unworthy. I fart in your general direction.

Last nights Council meeting was well attended and a lot of stuff got done. Here's the short version.

Dumbest shit I've read so far today. Illegal alien in San Francisco is suing San Fran for violating their Sanctuary City status. Dude had his car stole, reported it, it comes up he's illegal and SF notifies the Feds. Buh Bye.

I remember when providing sanctuary to something illegal was a crime called "Aiding and Abetting". Now we have somehow made the word illegal a positive thing and it is a requirement to help them. The bleeding heart liberals have really f'd up this country. Homeless did in the streets every single day and we are worried about protection of the illegals.

Now you have a majority in the house and senate and a Republican president. Please tell me about the glory days on our horizon. Nothing to stop you now right?
Can't blame the libtards and bleeding hearts.
We can get back to those great days we had before Obammy. Financiall crisis, unfounded wars, higher national debt, higher unemployment, higher crime rates, the banks running wall street. Happy Times.... Happy Times.

Good lord, check your facts.

Since Obama:

The National Debt has doubled, as has the debt per US Citizen.

The Labor Force Participation rate has decreased, as has the Home Ownership Rate and the Real Median Household Income.

The Tax to Benefits Ratio has increased, as has the Number of Food Stamps Dependents and the Number of Persons Living in Poverty.

And the Nation is as divided as ever.

The Obama Presidency was a complete disaster, and it is time to admit it and move on.

Can you explain 'labor force particiation and 'tax to benefits ratio' in plain English and without copying and pasting from the internet as you did above? Think for yourself; don't let Breitbart think for you.

So I take that to eman you are only challending tose 2 categories. That is a good start.

Lets do one and then you can do your own research on the other. This blog is not the place to get educated.

The "Labor Force Participation Rate) is basically a ratio of the number of people working versus the number of people available to work. there is more to it, but that is the basic. It is a much more telling number than "Unemployment Rate". Those numbers are always skewed.

Check out data.bls.gov. Interesting reading.

And I have never read a word of Breibart. Actually, I had never even heard of it until Trump nominated the Bannon guy and I looked up his history. Don't know where that come from.

Have fun!!! Only one more day.....
