Drink up, it's Christmas!

A couple were in a busy shopping centre just before Christmas.

The wife suddenly noticed that her husband was missing and as they
had a lot to  do, so she called him on the mobile. The wife said "
Where are you, you know we have lots to do"

He said "You remember the jewelers we went into about 10 years ago
and you fell in love  with that diamond necklace.  I could not afford
it at the time and I said that one day I would get it for you."

Little tears started to flow down her cheek and she got all choked
up. "Yes, I do remember that shop"

"Well I am in the bar next to that."

December 20, 1953

It all started back on a Sunday.  The date was December 20th,  1953 at Stevens County Memorial Hospital in Morris, MN.   I was born at 2:49 pm.    I was 5.55 ounces.  I was 18.5 inches long.   My eyes were bluish grey and my hair was black.  There was a full moon that night.   My parents brought me home from the hospital on Christmas Day,  1953.  Dr. Eide was the delivering Doctor. 

My parents lived at 404 E. 6th Street in Morris, MN when I was born.  When I was baptized I was dressed in the dress my mother and grandmother were baptized in 46 years ago.   I was baptized by Father Harlow Sheldon.  My godparents were my aunt, Alyce Mae Parisian Myers and my uncle, Jack Parisian.


On December 20 in Morris, MN the maximum average temperature for  a HIGH is 20 degrees Fahrenheit and the average LOW temperature is 6 degrees Fahrenheit.

The hospital was completed in 1952  at a cost of half a million dollars and had 50 beds. It was one of the few fully accredited hospitals in west-central Minnesota.   I was birth number 122-53-201332, the son of Douglas Eugene Parisian and Betty Dorene Marquart Parisian.  My parents were engaged in 1948 and applied for a wedding license in the city of Minneapolis.  Dad was 27 and resided at 2107 Portland Avenue and Mom was 21 and resided at 618 East 22nd Street in south Minneapolis.

I am an enrolled member of the Mississippi Band of Minnesota Chippewa Indians, White Earth Reservation.  

Dwight Eisenhower was in the White House when I arrived.

Life Changes for 2016


As I’ve gotten older I ‘ve become aware of the cost of wasting time and be restless about my time.

Wear my LIFE BELT all the time. 

Make 2016 the busiest and best year of my life. 

Cook more and eat better. 
Engage in conversation with others who are fully engaged to be in conversation. If they have a smart device in their hand or in front of them I will not engage.

Paul Anthony Gosar, American HERO

Paul Anthony Gosar is an American Republican politician and member of the United States House of Representatives from Arizona since 2011, representing Arizona's 4th congressional district.
Yesterday, Gosar took to his Facebook page to expose the reality of the massive Omnibus Spending Bill... and who is to blame... Why I Am Voting NO on the Massive Omnibus Spending Bill:



Once again I find myself shaking my head at the wasteful spending in DC and a flawed process that drops thousands of pages of text on us with 48 hours to “read” and understand. I wish I could put all the blame on big spending Democrats, liberals who seek to bankrupt our nation and others who are ignorant of the fiscal crisis within which we live. But I can’t. Congress is controlled by Republicans. So, this massive and wasteful spending bill is on Republican leadership—who continues the pattern I have seen for 5 years now.
 
If I sound disappointed, it’s because I am. Republicans have been elected around the country on the simple promise of reducing spending and the size of the federal government. To rein in a lawless and dangerously incompetent Obama administration. We know what the American people want.They have made that clear in the last three election cycles. Except for the sequester vote in August 2011 (a law I proudly voted for and that actually reduced spending 3 years in a row), no other law has been enacted that makes meaningful cuts to spending. I am disappointed but I refuse to give up.
 
There are some items in the Omnibus that I support and fought to have included such as eliminating taxpayers bailouts of the Obamacare “risk corridor” program and delaying the “Cadillac tax” which puts 2 more nails in the Obamacare coffin, funding for PILT and SCAAP, as well as lifting the crude oil export ban which I have taken a lead role in accomplishing. Additionally, the Omnibus bill includes the House-passed language that reforms the VISA Waiver Program.
 
But the bad far outweighs the good, and overall, this bill misses so many opportunities. A bill with 2242 pages of legislative text and over 1000 pages of explanatory material was first released at 1:34 AM today and we will vote on it this Friday. I am not Nancy Pelosi. I will not vote to pass a bill just to find out later what is in it. That is irresponsible and silly. Bottom line: this is a big spending bill. It spends more ($50 billion) than is authorized and agreed to under the Budget Control Act of 2011. This alone is reason to reject this bill. We set limits that are intended to implement our campaign promises.
 
This Omnibus does not defund the president’s executive amnesty orders and fails to prevent funds for sanctuary cities, both abdications of the power of the purse. The bill failed to defund Obamacare. This bill failed to include a provision blocking refugees from Syria from being resettled in this country until we have a system that can properly vet them. Worse yet, the bill allows the president to bring in as many refugees as he wants and allows access for these refugees to welfare and entitlements at taxpayer expense.
 
The bill failed to block the EPA's new WOTUS, Clean Power Plan and Ozone regulations. It also failed to block the administration's new AFFH rule, to block the new Stream Protection Rule and to block the BLM's new fracking rule, do anything to limit massive designations of new national monuments under the Antiquities Act by Obama and to block the new Central American Minors (CAM) program.
 
It increases IRS spending by over $200 million and includes a $500 million increase for the wasteful and inefficient Head Start program. The bill increases funding for the EPA $717.73 million above the House passed bill.
 
The bill fails to block funding for Planned Parenthood and will allow hundreds of millions to continue to flow to the organization's coffers ($528.4 million in federal funding last year alone).
 
The bill egregiously extends the Wind PTC for five years and extends LWCF for three years with no meaningful reforms even though the program is now unauthorized. The bill includes $226.8 million for new land acquisition and to lock-up more land, even though the federal government can't even manage the land it currently owns.
 
The bill bails out the International Monetary Fund by increasing the U.S. quota. This IMF will now have access to even more taxpayer dollars in order to fund bailouts of other irresponsible governments like Greece.
 
To make matters worse, there were tons of great riders that passed both Houses and were even included in base bills that somehow failed to make it into the final bill.
 
The fact that extremist environmental groups are pleased and that Obama hasn't threatened a veto tells you everything you need to know about this fundamentally-flawed bill.
 
I refuse to go along with the status quo of more wasteful and abusive government spending. It doesn't have to be this way. We must have the courage to fix our broken budget process and return to regular order. As long as I represent hard-working Arizonans, I will never stop fighting to end this madness. This is my line in the sand and I refuse to back down.

Wall Street Humor, THE BIG SHORT and Martin Shkreli in Jail?

I see that "bad" guy Martin Shkreli is in the news again, this time in cuffs, amazing huh?

When Jon Corzine is in cuffs and behind bars I will seriously give a shit. 

Until then it's all just a side show of smoke and mirrors.   Those attorneys should be ashamed of themselves.  Oh wait, they are bought and paid for too.

On another note,   Chair Yellen is having the time of her life talking about the GREAT RECESSION of 2008.  

Doesn't ANYONE in the media remember how much guilt there was to go around?

Maybe the movie rolling out this week, THE BIG SHORT will rekindle some lapse in memory.

Ya think?

Michael Lewis letter to the SEC about the IEX exchange

Subject: File No. 10-222
From: Michael Lewis
Affiliation: Author

December 12, 2015

It's been interesting to read the public accounts of the money
and time spent by high frequency traders and the existing public
stock exchanges, to lobby your agency and other government
officials, to prevent IEX from becoming a public exchange.

That is, to prevent an honest competitor from introducing
an innovation into the U.S. stock market that promises to
benefit not only investors in that market but the entire
U.S. economy-at the expense of high frequency traders
and the existing public stock exchanges. IEX represents a
market solution to a messy problem. It was created to protect
investors against the predatory trading of high frequency
traders. It has proven itself capable of doing so. If it is allowed
to become a public exchange it will surely further reduce the
tax levied by Wall Street intermediaries on U.S. stock market
investors, and, in the bargain, introduce a new spirit of fairness
to that market. I urge that the U.S. government authorities
tasked with supervising the U.S. stock market move briskly
to enable IEX to become a public exchange. 

Sincerely,

Michael Lewis

Hunter Parisian, 2014-2015

My oldest son, Hunter Parisian shot the deer pictured above (top) in 2014.

The bottom picture is of the buck he killed this year,  2015.   Nice bucks from the same stand at the Ghost Ranch.

An old warrior on the Yellowstone River


We had alot of pictures of this old fellow.   He lived well until an unfortunate incident took out his vision in his left eye.  Whatever it was that made him blind in his left eye he still ruled the roost in battling smaller bucks for a hot doe.   His left eye had grown shut and was crusted over in a hard mass of tissue.

My son, Hunter Parisian, put this buck down in the late afternoon on Thanksgiving day, 2015 after watching him in an interesting sparring session with another big buck.      

Artistry of the main stream media and political hacks................

The old establishments are dead.

What is left are elites, collectives of officeholders past and present, donors, lobbyists, think-tankers angling for jobs, party hacks and talking heads.

What the Republican Party collectivity has to realize is that it is they and the policies they produced that are the reason Trump, Carson and Cruz currently hold an overwhelming majority of Republican votes.

It was the elites of both parties who failed to secure our borders and brokered the trade deals that have de-industrialized America and eviscerated our middle class.

It was the elites of both parties who got us into these idiotic wars that have blown up the Middle East, cost us trillions of dollars, thousands of dead, and tens of thousands of wounded among our best and bravest.

That Republican elites would sit around a dinner table on Capitol Hill and discuss how to frustrate the rising rebellion against what they have done to America, and decide among themselves who shall lead us, is astonishing and honestly, sickening.

To borrow from President Reagan, they are not the solution to America's problems.

They are the problem.
