Well, we are getting close to the  end of another season and the tough get tougher and the weak get weaker….The tough teams are usually 3 or 4 deep in good players in each position while the lesser teams are lucky to have more than one good player is most positions. Most teams are playing all banged up, some not so much. And this week my guesses are as follows:

Alabama vs “The Citadel”….?…Does Saban make these schedules?….Bama wins

Arizona vs Washington State….Washington State wins

Wisconsin vs Purdue….Purdue wins

New Mexico vs Boise State….Boise St wins

NMSU vs BYU….BYU wins

Texas Tech vs Kansas St….Texas Tech wins

upset pick:

Nebraska vs Michigan State….Nebraska wins

Liberals and Conservatives……

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 06-11-2018


Have you noticed that the conservatives get along much better with the liberals, when the liberals are in power, than the liberals get along with the conservatives, when the conservatives are in power. I mean those liberal folks break into stores, steal, riot, loot, over turn cars and on and on when the conservatives do not promote the liberals favorite programs. On the other hand, when the liberals are doing their thing, passing more liberal laws and raising taxes, etc., the conservative grumbles and complains but seldom breaks any laws….Why do you think that is?

Arizona vs Colorado…ok, they are winning again….Arizona wins…they did  W

Texas Tech vs Oklahoma…I want TT to win…but this week its Oklahoma..it was   W

New Mexico vs San Diego State…NM has a new QB…I’m choosing them..NM wins….played better but lost   L

Seems To Me Like…….

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 11-10-2018


You know it seems to me like the world is going crazy….but then again, maybe it’s me. But I feel like:

  1. God has pulled away from America and probably because America has pulled away from God.
  2. People care only about themselves anymore.
  3. When voting its “what can you do for me” attitude when selecting a candidate.
  4. Protesting when elections do not go their way and most of the protesting turn violent,  in effect saying, “you folks better listen to me or you may get hurt.”
  5. No one knows history anymore. We have dumbed down our school systems.
  6. Our kids are excellent in running computers and phone apps. Figuring things out for themselves, not so much.
  7. Rules and government are ok as long as they are favorable to liberal thinking.
  8. Conservative ideas, “you got to be kidding”. Their are a few young people who think conservatively, but very few.
  9. That 10 percent tax rate works for God and seems to me like if all of us, including companies and corporations, would pay 10 percent to the USA we would have all the money necessary to run our government.
  10. Everyone who is able should work. If you draw a welfare check you should work doing something….sweeping streets, picking up trash, clerking in government offices….something, anything, but all work.
