This latest incident concerning the Werewolf community is being followed closely by some residents in the Town of Juniper which my first Novel is also named; “Us Werewolves must stand together,” I heard one of them say! To get a copy of my latest Novel, Juniper: http://www.lulu.com/shop/michael-clayton/juniper/paperback/product-21341135.html
“You’re being too kind by calling them female cat enthusiasts,” snarled Gary Lincoln, the leader of Maine’s largest Werewolf pack. “They’ve each got at least a dozen cats, they’re single, and they smell like cat urine…they’re Cat Ladies. Call them by their proper name!”
It’s understandable why Gary is so upset, and his wild pacing across the hardwood floors of The House on the Hill made me very grateful that there was not a full moon. I could only imagine the damage his Werewolf claws would have done to my floors.
These Cat Ladies, as Gary insists I call them, want a law requiring Maine Werewolves to be on leashes whenever they are outside of their homes.
“First off, Maine is our home, and we…

Really, you mean to tell me that Zero and Co., Hillary and her tribe were SUPPLYING ARMS TO AL QUADAI REBELS IN LYBIA and also knew that the Benghazi Embassy could be attacked and who did it and why??? Surely you jest as we all KNOW that Zero and Co. always tell the truth, obey the law and are the most open and transparent administration ever! Right???
When you are at war with another Nation or designated group, what is it called when you AID AND SUPPORT the Enemy??? Anybody? Anybody?
How about TREASON!!! Yes Hillary, it does matter and you and Zero and anyone in the Government involved in these efforts and the salacious cover-up should be tried for Treason, executed and/or put in Jail until you die!!!
Can you all imagine what the Federal Government, the CIA, FBI and NSA would do to any of us American Citizens that were found to supply arms to Al Quadai Terrorist Rebels???
We would be tried for Treason, and either executed or put in jail for life! Don’t you think that punishment is just as good for our Government Officials that do the same!!!
My understanding is that during Jesus’ time, it would be a whole lot more probable that he was ma…
Just sad to hear! The Ultimate Warrior was always one of my favorites back in the 80’s and 90’s. One hell of a performer and wrestler too!
And I would just like to slap the dog shit, and that’s what it would be because she is just a bitch (Sorry if I offend any dogs or dog owner’s comparing her to a dog) for IMMEDIATELY jumping on the “steroids killed him” bandwagon and the man is not even cold from being dead yet!
Of course he used steroids, I think he even admitted it, but guess what, I’ll bet 5 or 6, maybe more, 56 year old men in America also died that day of something and it doesn’t make it any better or worse to them or their families what the fucking cause was, he died, tragically and we could at least wait a bit, maybe til after the funeral and we get an autopsy report before we go to sully his image as a great entertainer and a husband and a father!
Does anybody realize that over 2500 people die every day in America from PRESCRIPTION PILL (Mostly Opiates) usage??? Zero die every day from overdosing on pot and only a few, maybe 10 to 20, if even that many people, die every YEAR from conditions attributable to Anabolic Steroid use???
That’s right, pot and anabolic steroids are in the same classification of drugs as Opiates, Cocaine and Meth! Yeah, it’s fucking stupid is what it is!!!
Can we please just stop the insanity people and start focusing on the REAL PROBLEMS in our society and not on the things that are notoriously sensationalized by the Media, the Government and Big Business to influence our way of thinking!!! Why aren’t every CEO, COO, and the Board Members, etc. of the Pharmaceutical Companies on trial for all the overdose deaths their prescription pills have caused in America, and around the world, over the last 30 years???
2500 people die every damn day from prescription pills and it is no big deal in our eyes because we are spoon fed about the ills of Steroid Use by the Media and the Federal Government when a Professional Wrestler or Sports figure dies what we would consider prematurely and it gets everyone up in a big damn tizzy about how awful a person he was, how big a cheater he was etc.
Wake up people, get your head out of your asses, do some research on your own, this internet is a great learning tool ya know, and form your own damn ideas and opinions for once instead of believing what Nancy Grace or MSNBC or FOX NEWS or Bill Maher or Rush Limbaugh tell you to believe in!!! Then, maybe when the truth starts coming out, not just the propaganda the media, the Gov and Big Biz feed us, we can start to get this Nation working for the people and not just for the special interests!

We are in a mess!
I wish all people well, healthy and happy lives and I don’t want to see anybody hurting, sick, in danger of a serious health problem or even death. For sure, there are some difficult challenges ahead for America as we deal with proper, affordable healthcare for all, illegal immigration, a stagnant ~ at best ~ economy, the IRS targeting certain people and groups, the NSA spying on us Americans, continued trouble in the Middle East that always seems to somehow pull us into the row. As Marty Huggins says in “The Campaign” – Washington, it’s a mess!!! I might take that farther and say, “America, it’s a mess!!!”
We can argue for days, weeks and years about these issues, specifically healthcare and Insurance, and probably never get any closer to any real solutions or answers. I have good, civil discussions here on FB all the time about a plethora of these type issues and I don’t think any of us ever walk away convinced of anything different than when we went in to the discussion. Most of the rhetoric on FB usually turns into name-calling and hateful diatribe aimed at each other instead of a proper civil discourse about serious issues; I don’t know how that ever helps?
Personally, my brain hurts from thinking about these things, listening to it on the news and radio, trying to figure out who is right, who is wrong, what is good for everyone and America, what is bad, how is all this mess gonna affect my kids as they become young adults, where are we going, how we gonna get there???
Sometimes, I just unplug from it all for a few days, even a week or two, and just “Fahget about it!” Kinda like giving my brain a vacation! And ya know what, every time I plug back in to see what is going on in the world, it’s the same ol’ shit, different day, maybe in a slightly different place with a few different people; but mostly the same. I often tell others that it reminds me of watching a soap opera. Miss a week or two of a show and when you turn it on to watch it again, it’s the same ol’ stuff going on as when you last watched it, slightly different places, slightly different people, same ol’ shit going on.
I am a Libertarian. Not a Republican or a Democrat, a Libertarian. I believe that the Federal, State and Local Governments should leave me, and others, alone as much as possible. I want the bare minimum government services we can get by with. I don’t want them spying on me, lying to me, telling me who I can sleep with and who I can’t sleep with or marry, stealing from me, giving my money to other people or giving me things or other people’s money and I just really don’t want them bothering me! I don’t want to argue with you about my beliefs or what is right or wrong or good or bad on here right now. That is just where I am coming from when I do post or talk politics on here.
I also study and practice the Buddhist Philosophy and Teachings of Jesus Christ ~ Not of any church or denomination or of Paul or James or Peter, of Jesus the Christ ~ and try not to harm any sentient beings, loving all and helping those people and animals I can while spreading peace and joy wherever I may be. Again, I am not gonna argue with you about Jesus and Mohammed and Judaism verses Christianity, etc. Just when you see my posts on here, a lot of them will be from my Christian and Buddhist beliefs. If you like them, read them; if not, don’t!
I don’t have any answers. I got a lot of ideas and suggestions, but as you get older you find out things aren’t as black and white as you would like them to be. There are many shades of grey out there in our world that we find out we have to deal and live with as we age. Some things are mostly wrong and others kind of right, kind of a sin but not quite a virtue, mostly legal but not always moral, not really a lie and not always the truth, if you get my drift.
What I do see in America, and around the world, is not a problem of brain power, intelligence or technology; no, it is a problem with the HEART! The world is plenty technologically advanced and smart enough to fix our physical, medical and technical problems. I see our problem as one where we have hardened our hearts toward one another, our planet and its needs! Science and Technology have become our saviors instead of the tools they were meant to be to provide us with better and longer lives and more comfortable ones too. I am in no way against science, technology, mathematics, physics, etc. As a Biologist/Chemist degree graduate I more than understand their place in our lives. But, they are a poor substitute for love and compassion for one another and for living in peace and harmony with our fellow human beings!
I guess if I had some suggestions for us all it would start with loving everyone and just try to be nice! It doesn’t cost you any more to love your brother and sisters and be kind to them than it does to hate them and be mean to them! Jesus the Christ said, “Love one another!” He didn’t say hate your neighbor and ridicule him or her! He went on to tell a parable of the Good Samaritan as an example of who your neighbor is. And guess what? It is everyone! Love everyone and then you don’t have to pick or choose who to love! And yeah, yeah, yeah I don’t wanna hear about does that mean we should love, forgive and be nice to rapist and murderers and Al-Queda and terrorists. You people are smart enough to know what I am talking about!
Then next, I guess it would be that we need to take Personal Responsibility for our selves and our own lives and not expect anyone else, or the government, to do it for us! Again, I am not talking about disabled people or the handicapped that need other people’s assistance to survive. I am talking about able-bodied Americans taking responsibility for what we do, when we do it, how we do it and were we do it! I think it would be fabulous if the President would read and apply this principle as blaming former President Bush and everyone else for mistakes he and his cronies make has worn very thin with me!
Finally, turn off the TV, unplug from your I-phone, I-pad, computer and FB for a time on a periodic basis and go do something with your kids, your parents, your family, your neighbors, your co-workers, etc. Get outside and play some basketball, take a walk around the neighborhood, go to a play or concert, even just a club with some live music! Paint something, anything; it doesn’t have to be a masterpiece, just putting paint on a background can be very therapeutic! Throw around the football, draw with chalk on the sidewalk with the kids, take a hike out in the woods, go fishing, just get out of the house and get some fresh air for a change! I believe the more we get out and into the world, participate in it and get to know other people and the world we live in, the more compassion we may have for them and for this planet we all reside on!
If we could start here, with these simple suggestions, maybe we could start to clean up this mess!
Look, I told people who were touting that everyone needed affordable insurance and that the evil Ins. Companies couldn’t give it to us in a fair and reasonable way and that only by having the Federal Government step in and MAKE them give everyone insurance would it work, that getting the Federal Gov’t involved in Healthcare Ins WOULD NOT REDUCE INSURANCE COSTS BUT WOULD ONLY CAUSE IT TO COST MORE AND MORE AND MORE!!!!
You people must be brain damn dead to think that ANYTHING, ANYTHING the Federal Government does will EVER IN A TRILLION GODDAMMED YEARS reduce costs of anything they get involved in!!!!
EVERY FREAKING Federal Gov’t program is a debacle at the very best!!! Soc Sec has been mismanaged and going broke for years now! Every Welfare program is a mess, trapping people in a bondage of perpetual misery, generation after generation! The Post Office is broke and has been for freaking forever! Our military pays 300 damn dollars for freakiing toilet seats and 600 dollars for hammers!!! How much more FUCKING STUPID do you have to be to let the Fed Gov’t run anything????????????
This O-care act was a boondoggle when it was proposed and had to be forced down our throats by changing the senate rules to go from requiring a 2/3rds majority to pass it to only having to have a 51 to 49 majority to pass it!!! Who does that to people??? O, Pelosi, Harry Reid and other lying, cheating, thieving, no good, sorry ass crooks in the O admin and congress, that’s who!!! And if all this didn’t persuade you this was a bad idea to adopt this damn thing, when O and Congress Opted out, not to be a part of the Act and subject to its Insurance Provisions, that should have told you how great it was and how bad you are gonna get screwed!!!
I will say it now, as I said before O-care passed and how bad it would be and how bad it would affect Americans and American Business, that Obama and his Admin, Hillary, Reid, Pelosi, and Feinstein will be looked upon as the WORST, the Absolutely Horribly WORST people to EVER have any control over this country and will be blamed, when it is all said and done, for the destruction of what was left of the once great USA beginning in 2008!!! Mark my word By God you will see!!!
