Hello once again from the West Texas Home For Old Jingoistic White Guys Who Do Not Feel Guilty About Their Race Gender Age Or Conspiratorial Tendencies.
Let us look at the word TRANS:    prefix - over;  across;  beyond
We have all been subjected to any number of conditions which have added the prefix - trans to any number of conditions or states of being and I would like to discuss a few.

TRANSGENDER- From everything I have heard, particularly when discussing the Bruce Jenner TRANSFORMATION from being a male to being a female.  According to what I have heard and read, Jenner just simply felt as if he were a woman trapped in a man's body.  So he underwent some type of procedure, I am not entirely sure of the extent, which TRANSFORMED Bruce into a female calling herself Caitlyn  Jenner.   And of course Jenner was not the first time this has occurred but he certainly has become the most famous.  BUT, I am sort of like Rhett Butler in the fact that "Frankly, I Don't Give a Damn".  I don't know Bruce Jenner but have reached the conclusion that perhaps living a life with "The Kardashians" perhaps has a tendency to mess with your mind.
TRANSSEXUAL- From what I have read, this term is pretty much in the same category as TRANSGENDER with many females being changed to males through surgery but it also includes male to female.  Not fully understanding the reasons why, I choose to remain uninformed on this matter.  Again, Rhett and I are on the same page.
AH,  but now we have a couple of terms that I have not heard tossed about before the past week or so and I don't even know whether they existed prior to that time and these terms are:
TRANSABILITY - And this term was applied to a guy who felt as if he were a disabled person trapped in the body of someone who was not disabled.  According to the story the guy cut off his own arm so that he could achieve his true disabled state.  I had never heard this before and hopefully this guy will not start a new trend but in these times...... who knows?
TRANSRACIAL - One of the definitions indicates that it an adjective describing something or someone who can be  involved with TWO OR MORE RACIAL  GROUPS.
However the latest use of this term has been used to describe the idiot female FORMER President of the SPOKANE NAACP.  Her name is Rachel Dolezal.  Rachel was born a Caucasian and both of her biological parents are Caucasian...... AH, but it ends there because Rachel felt as if she were a black person TRAPPED in a white person's body, or that is what I read/heard.  Then of course if you watch or read about this woman, you begin to have some serious doubts as to her real reasons  I saw several different pictures of Rachel and she was doing her level best to look like a light skin black female.  Rachel is 37 years old and graduated from historically black Howard University and was teaching African studies at a local university.  She was married to a black man.  For years she described herself as black and allegedly complained repeatedly about being a victim of racial hatred.  I am not sure how long she had been President of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP and when I really get to thinking about it, it is not a pivotal moment in my life on this planet and I must once again fall back on Ol' Rhett's not giving a damn attitude.  BUT it did seem to get this goofy ass broad her 15 minutes of fame.
AND, after reading about these above mentioned TRANS  feelings I thought of a new term involving the prefix TRANS.  And that would be TRANSINTELLIGENCIA.  Let's look at my meaning for this term.
TRANSINTELLIGENCIA:  This would be my theory that inside every far left Progressive/Socialist/Marxist/Democrat who believes himself/herself much more intelligent and better educated than the rest of the human race, their lives a real died-in-the-wool  IDIOT.   AND inside every single Progressive/Socialist/Marxist/Democrat who admits that he/she might be an IDIOT..... there lives an even BIGGER  IDIOT.
Just look about you at the present Obama Administration;   The Speaker of the House of Representatives;   The Senate Majority Leader;  Hillary Clinton and her comical sidekick Bill;   The President of MSNBC;  The Mayor of Baltimore Maryland;   The Mayor of New York City;   The Governor of California;   The Commissioner of the NFL;   Geraldo Rivera;  The great majority of our VARMINT  LIST.  AND perhaps the biggest IDIOTS of all,  the majority of the AMERICAN  VOTERS  WHO  ELECTED  BARACK  OBAMA  FOR  TWO  TERMS.
As you see, our country is loaded with 'em.  BUT  we do have a chance  to REVERSE this trend in the 2016 Presidential Election.  The Conservatives in this country had better get off their collective backsides and not be fooled by the likes of JEB  BUSH and Dr. Ben Carson and Mike Huckabee and a few more.  The Democrat/Progressive/Socialist  hold on our federal government must be broken...... and as soon  as  possible.  Or else we had better come up with a new term:
TRANSSHAFTED:  That is going from being SHAFTED  by the federal government to being REALLY  SHAFTED by those criminals in three piece suits.

OH NO!!!!  The F.B.I. is now wasting time, money, and resources in an all out investigation to determine whether or not SOMEONE with the ST. LOUIS CARDINALS baseball franchise HACKED into the computer of the HOUSTON  ASTROS and gathered up valuable information on..... God only knows what.  NOW, while the F.B.I. and the Department of Justice is committing manpower and other resources toward solving this mystery, I have it already figured out.  Here is my theory:
The Astros Computer was hacked by either Bill Belichick or Tom Brady or George Bush.
The reason it was hacked is to see if perhaps the Astros had finally solved the mystery of Global Warming/Climate Change OR perhaps the age old question of why Goofy, Mickey Mouse's best friend can talk while Pluto, Mickey Mouse's pet cannot and they are both DOGS?
This pathetic excuse for news has been dominating every single news channel slightly edging out the announcement of Donald Trump for President.
I must tell you that my Give-A-Shitter is BROKE and even Rhett Butler's thoughts are a bit too light for me.

"Professors at the University of California at Berkeley have been officially warned against saying such things as America  is  the  land  of  opportunity.  Why?  Because this is considered to be an act of MICRO-AGGRESSION" against minorities and women.  Supposedly it shows that you don't take their grievances seriously and are therefore guilty of being aggressive  toward them, even if only on a micro scale."................  THOMAS  SOWELL
"Academic administrators have all too often taken the well-worn path of least resistance, by regarding the most trivial, or even silly, claims of victimhood with great seriousness, even when that involved undermining faculty members held in high esteem by most of their students and by their professional colleagues on campus and beyond."............ THOMAS  SOWELL
"Current attempts by the Obama administration to force low-income housing to be built in middle class and upscale communities are on a par with forcing people to buy the kind of health insurance the government wants them to buy -- ObamaCare -- rather than leaving them free to buy whatever suits their own situation and preferences."........

 "An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us!.... Sir, we are not weak if we make  a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power....  Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone.   There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us....   Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of the chains of slavery?  Forbid it, Almighty God.  I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death.".....

This past week end there were two young people lost body parts due to two separate shark attacks off the coast of North Carolina.  According to the news articles and television reports, a 12 year old girl lost her left arm below the elbow and suffered a leg injury Sunday afternoon.  Then about an hour and twenty minutes later about two miles from where the girl was attacked a 16 year old boy had  his arm bitten off above the elbow.   Both had been swimming about 20 yard off shore in fairly shallow water.  Some of the authorities said they saw a 7 foot shark in the area.  I am sure that a shark even of smaller size is capable of causing serious injury or death to humans.

I grew up in Houston, Texas and on a fairly regular basis went to the beaches a Galveston;  La Porte;  Freeport and other areas on the Texas Gulf Coast.  Not until I was about a Senior in High School did I receive a serious shark scare at the West Beach in Galveston.   A couple of buddies and I skipped school just before some holiday and went fishing along the West Beach.  We waded out into about waist deep water and were casting our bait out a bit further into deeper water.  We all had caught several really nice speckled trout and were keeping them on stringers tied to our waist.  I looked to my right just in time to see a rather large shark roll over by one of my buddies and he went under.  My other buddy saw the same thing and we both thought our friend was gone so we both headed to the beach at a really fast rate.  By the time we got into shallow water we saw our friend who had gone under come up and head toward shore at an even faster rate.  When he got there we saw that the shark had gone for the fish on his stringer which was cut pretty near his waist.  He was not injured but like us had the pure crap scared out of him.

That was my last time to wade out into the gulf even in shallow water.  I did fish in the area later on but it was either from the bank;  off a pier;  or out of a boat.
I always got a kick out of those so called experts who would tell me that "The sharks are more afraid of you than you are of them".  At which time I would promptly tell them that they were full of crap and that they could have no idea how terrified I was of sharks  AND that if their opinions were true then there wouldn't be a shark left alive as they would all be dead of fear.  Of course these are the same experts who tell us that rattlesnakes are more afraid of us than we are of them. More BS.
I heard a story on the radio yesterday morning and I do not recall what city it was in but apparently an 11, Eleven, XI, once, year old boy was shooting baskets in his back yard for an hour and a half..... for those of you in the People's Republic Of San Francisco.... that is 90 minutes.  And during this time period, his parents did not come outside to check on him.  According to the story, the neighbors called the police and the parents were subsequently charged with something like Child Endangerment. I seem to remember another account of a couple of kids 6 or 7 years old who were playing in a park down the street from their house with no adult supervision, and their parents were also charged with Child Endangerment.
I guess they would have wanted to execute my parents who allowed me to ride a city bus in Houston from out house to downtown Houston to see a first run movie.  And this was a ride of about 6 miles and after dark on the way home.  I know that times are different now but a kid in his own back yard seems a bit of overkill.
I watched several videos of Presidential hopeful Dr. Ben Carson.  Now, while I believe Dr. Carson to be a good man and a very smart individual in his field, I have a few problems with his understanding of The Constitution of the United States.  Dr. Carson was asked by a reporter,  "Would it be alright for me to own a SEMI-AUTOMATIC handgun"?  To which Dr. Carson replied, "It would depend on where you lived."   DEPEND  ON WHERE  I  LIVE?   Well I live in The United States of America and regardless of the physical location of my primary place of residence, I don't believe the Second Amendment says that people who live in certain places may own arms to protect themselves.
I am not real sure that Dr. Carson has really been exposed to enough of the real world to be a good leader.  He blew it with me with that answer.  Of course I would prefer him over Hillary but I could say that about almost anybody.
AH, and then there is Lincoln Chafee who is poised to challenge Hillary. AND Lincoln's big gun item is to .... now get ready for this..... BRING  BACK  THE  METRIC  SYSTEM AND BRING  US  IN  LINE  WITH  THE  REST  OF  THE  WORLD.
HEY!!  If Lincoln manages to do that, then Denver, Colorado would go from the "Mile High City" to the "One Point Six Kilometer Elevation City".
What a boob.
Just when a video of Bill O'Reilly's  talk on black crime had been circulating and it seems as if Bill is finally getting ready to come out as a conservative, he makes the statement that Michelle Obama is a really good First Lady and that she really cares about Military Families.  HEY  BILL!!  You must have been bitten by a Radioactive Dung Beetle if you believe that crap.
Sad to hear of the death of actor Christopher Lee who passed away at age 93.  He maid loads of movies and was perhaps the best Dracula ever.  But he made many other movies and was actually quite a good actor.  I don't believe I ever heard any negative comments about him and have read many articles which told of the esteem in which he was held by his co-workers.
