For Mainers, Sighting of Mud Runt Official Notice of Spring

Greenwood, Maine 4-01-17     The rare and mostly unseen, Mud Runt, was glimpsed late last week.  The spring melt was progressing nicely, and many mud holes were opening up.  The roads are all posted to prohibit heavy truck traffic, and hopes of lovely flowers danced in many heads.  But the April Fools Day snow storm put the damper on hopes of seeing more of the reptilian wonders.  We here, will still try to get more pictures and sightings of this amazing denizen of “Mud Season”.  EP

However, the following weather forecast certain bids doom and gloom for the sought-after Mud Runt.

Trump Activates Militia, Calls All Capable of Bearing Arms to Carry

Arizona – -(Ammoland.com)-On Saturday, President Donald Trump issued an executive order activating the Militia in all 50 states and seven U.S. territories. The executive order claimed that as president he had authority as Commander in Chief to activate the militia, consisting of “All people capable of bearing arms”.

In the order, President Trump urged all militia members to carry arms during their daily activities as a way to deter terrorism and prevent crime.

President Trump’s order was immediately decried as unconstitutional by Maximum Waters, spokesperson for the Democrat Party. Ms Waters stated that the order was blatantly illegal, because the activating militia law, dating to 1916, only applies to males, while the order applies to all people, including women, and trans women who may be biologically male, but identify as women.

Waters noted that Mr. Trump could not force women and trans-women to carry weapons, and that the infusion of tens of millions of armed militia in the streets would drive up crime, and endanger minorities in urban centers such as Chicago and Baltimore.

The order will go into effect on 1 April, 2017, at 24:59:59 Pacific time, and extend until 00:00:01 on 2 April, 2017, Eastern Standard time. Militia members are ordered to exercise the NRA safety rules and to keep their fingers outside of the trigger guard unless necessary to prevent violence.  If action is necessary, judicious marksmanship is expected.

NRA spokesperson, Chris LaPierre, declined comment in time for publication.

Gun Owners of America issued a brief statement saying that the order was long overdue, but did not go far enough. Nonetheless, GOA considered the action a good first step.

National Pubic Radio commentator Mary Liason stated that numerous studies showed that millions of untrained militia on the streets with weapons of war would result in bloodshed. Just look at Venezuela, Brazil, Liberia, Somalia, Iraq and Zimbabwe, she explained.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer defended the order at a press briefing. The President is exercising his lawful authority under the National Defense act of 1916, Spicer said.  A quick search on the Internet yielded this result. From justia.com:

The act of February 28, 1795,1670 which delegated to the President the power to call out the militia, was held constitutional.1671 A militiaman who refused to obey such a call was not “employed in the service of the United States so as to be subject to the article of war,” but was liable to be tried for disobedience of the act of 1795.1672

(snip)

Under the National Defense Act of 1916,1674 the militia, which hitherto had been an almost purely state institution, was brought under the control of the National Government. The term “militia of the United States” was defined to comprehend “all able-bodied male citizens of the United States and all other able-bodied males who have . . . declared their intention to become citizens of the United States,” between the ages of eighteen and forty-five.

It is clear that women are not included in the militia, as stated by Democrat Spokesperson Maximum.  Senator Schumer said that he expects impeachment papers to be issued later today in the Senate.

Judges in California, Hawaii, and Washington state are expected to write judicial decrees blocking President Trump from issuing any additional orders to any military organization. One judge is said to have ruled that calling up the militia is racist, sexist, and homophobic, therefore the order is illegal.

Those who have read this far will recognize that the first day of April is reserved for the application of stories designed to enlighten people otherwise deficient in wisdom.

A Message From Maine…AYUH

Cartoon Of The Day

We’ve all likely heard those infamous comments such as ” Sure and the earth is flat and you can fall of the edge”.. I got one for ya, The earth is a ball don’t fall off the edge.. Oops.. I guess Newton’s theory of “gravity” would not work on a flat earth aye? Gravity must be super hero that can keep the Oceans on a ball but not on a plane..  The Baal Earth doesn’t make anymore sense than the Flat Earth.. Anybody ever sailed upside down? Flew in a plane that was upside down? Stood upside down on a water soaked ball? I didn’t think so..

Obama So Afraid Of Russia And Putin Quote

“We regard the recent unfriendly steps taken by the outgoing US administration as provocative and aimed at further weakening the Russia-US relationship. This runs contrary to the fundamental interests of both the Russian and American people. Considering the global security responsibilities of Russia and the United States, this is also damaging to international relations as a whole.”

“As it proceeds from international practice, Russia has reasons to respond in kind. Although we have the right to retaliate, we will not resort to irresponsible ‘kitchen’ diplomacy but will plan our further steps to restore Russian-US relations based on the policies of the Trump Administration.”

“The diplomats who are returning to Russia will spend the New Year’s holidays with their families and friends. We will not create any problems for US diplomats. We will not expel anyone. We will not prevent their families and  children from using their traditional leisure sites during the New Year’s holidays. Moreover, I invite all children of US diplomats accredited in Russia to the New Year and Christmas children’s parties in the Kremlin.”

“It is regrettable that the Obama Administration is ending its term in this manner. Nevertheless, I offer my New Year greetings to President Obama and his family.”

“My season’s greetings also to President-elect Donald Trump and the American people.”

“I wish all of you happiness and prosperity.”—President of Russia

 

 

Some Things are Better Left Unsaid

Who Sees You When You’re Sleeping?

The below photograph shows a sign that is found in Maine on I-295. The Department of Transportation says the sign is intended to be both “humorous” and to remind people to slow down.

My perspective is most definitely different than most. If you take the name “Santa” and swap just two letters around, the word quickly becomes “Satan.” With the added, slightly blurred image, just to the left of the traffic sign, we can easily lose the image of Santa, replace it with Satan and then ask the question as to who, precisely, “sees you when your ‘speeding'” and who “knows if you’ve been bad or good.” More than likely this image can be updated next Christmas that shows one of the newly selected president. Time will tell.

Is not my “humor” equal to that of the Maine Department of Transportation?
