When your wife isn't feeling well so you spend $80 to have dinner delivered from Beef O'Brady's in Dothan and realize that, even if you didn't know how to turn on a stove, you could have done better by accident.

On October 23, 1983, I was in Beirut. We lost 241 faithful US peacekeepers that day. Two days later I was on the way home with a relatively minor sniper wound to the leg. But how many have forgotten the sacrifice of my brothers from 2d FSSG that day? #MemorialDay

I just read someone complaining about the changing culture in America possibly creating an open season on liberals. That doesn't sound like a bad idea as long as there's no bag limit. Especially after what they've done and continue to attempt to do to this country. I have had enough.

I'm sorry many of you had to witness my anger tonight, but when you find out you have less than 10 years to live, you finally decide to clean out all the energy sucking parasites in your life.

And I'm done. I'm retiring in October. I'm done as a member of the Howard clan. I'm fed up and no longer putting up with anyone who feels they need me to meet their standards of acceptability to be in their lives. I'm just done.

Monday, May 22, 2017 at 6:54pm CDT
I've had it. I'm tired of working for churches who turn out to be total thieves when they have an insurance claim. I'm tired of working for insurance companies who never even say thank you when you save them thousands of dollars on a loss. I'm tired of getting a billing complaint after turning a half dozen claims under budget with little or not payment under the policy. I'm tired of waking up every day to a diary showing red no matter how hard I work. The VA says I am 100% disabled due to early onset Parkinsons from poisoning due to the drinking water at Camp Lejeune, PTSD from all the bloody messes I cleaned up as a crime scene investigator, and the sleepless nights I endure as a result of all of it which have been going on for 30 plus years. I have done my best. My healthcare company says I have only 8 or 9 year left to live according to mortality tables I'm done. I'm retiring in the fall. I'm tired. I'm finished.

Monday, May 22, 2017 at 6:45pm CDT

North Korean Humor... http://www.cartoonmovement.com/depot/cartoons/2013/03/KyYFMKGGQBOUyOtV9YUx8Q.jpeg Kim Jung Un had NO military experience whatsoever before Daddy made him a four-star general. This snot-nosed twerp had never accomplished anything in his life that would even come close to military leadership. He hadn't even so much as led a Cub Scout troop, coached a sports team, or commanded a military platoon. So he is made the "Beloved Leader" Of North Korea. Terrific! Oh nuts! I'm sorry... http://www.multiart.no/humor/bilder/barack_obama_caricature.jpg I just remembered that we did the same thing. We took an arrogant phony community organizer, who had never worn a uniform, never ran so much as an ice-cream stand, and made him Commander-in-Chief. A guy, who had never had a real job, worked on a budget, or led anything more than an ACORN demonstration, and we made him "Beloved Leader" of the United States - Twice! So if you think North Koreans are stupid... I'm sorry I brought this up....never mind!

Reagan went out for the middle school football team as a wide receiver/tight end and linebacker. It was his first time trying out for a school team, or any team for football, and....

I want to thank Dothan Police Department and Dothan Fire Department for the great way they handled getting into my mother's home without damaging it, getting her to the hospital and making sure she was stable after she suffered a compound fracture of her leg in her kitchen. Especially, I want to thank my former Cub Scout Angus Scott IV who was on the Dothan Fire & Rescue unit that night. I'm very proud of the way this young man has grown up.

Good grief, we live in a nation of whining s*** heads. I have handled several liability claims on behalf of trucking companies well within the 30-day guideline and still people complain that this is too slow, that they want their money now. If you want your money now, go to your own insurance company, pay your deductible, and let the insurance companies fight it out behind the scenes. You have no idea what it takes for a third party liability claim to be handled. We have to verify liability, coverage, interview Witnesses, assess the damages, get a police report, and then wait for a very busy claims examiner at the insurance company to evaluate the claim and pay it. To accomplish all of this within 30 days in this area is the equivalent of burning out the light drive on a Starship. You want instant service? Go to the drive thru at McDonalds and double check your order or go to your own insurance company. By the way, if you get better than 2 weeks service at your own insurance company consider yourself blessed.

Couldn't find you on Twitter today. Have you been suspended again? Either way it's time for you to get on gab ai. They actually seem to support free speech. A lot of Twitter users that have been banned are already there. I'm small time enough that I'm still safe on Twitter but a lot of bigger conservative accounts have been banned. It's still early enough (it's still in beta) you can be Greg W Howard again & build another huge following. I know Twitter won't let you get big again without a ban. On Gab you can get back to 115k or more. Right now gab is mostly right wingers. They want to add libs but right now the libs have Twitter. Right now the Right controls gab. I wanted to give you a heads up so you could get in on the ground floor.

27 years ago, right now, I was standing outside the backdoor of the chapel at First Presbyterian Church in Dothan, AL, sweating and nervous in a white tux, with borrowed Pastor Charles Dooling from First United Methodist Church and my now departed step-dad George Kennedy. We were waiting for the processional to start. I was about to marry Sandra E. Howard nee Mack Probably the best decision I EVER made. How do I know? Right now she is slow dancing with our 90-pound black lab, Chip, to Boyz II Men "In the Still of the Night." And I'm cracking up.

Years ago when I was a claim representative at a major insurance company, when we got a live one on the phone, we would stand up with a sign that said "I got an idiot." We would then place the call on speaker phone so anyone else could come up and enjoy the fun. Just thought I'd let you know what goes on out there. Keep your cool when you're talking to your claims adjuster.

I just got this great idea from consulting on a claim. First, form a church. Next thing you do is make sure you file it as a tax-free organization. Then, you operate a daycare center without having to pay any taxes on it. Then, as pastor, you get to run around in a vehicle purchased and insured with tax free money from the church. And finally have an accident at 2 o'clock in the morning on a Saturday night in the church vehicle with a female passenger not your wife and have it all paid for with this tax free insurance. Nice, huh?

After Sunday's Allstars State Tournament, I am stepping down from coaching boys soccer forever. I will only coach older boys where the parents no longer matter. I told the boys to stop playing "grab ass," a word which is in most of the early evening TV shows and almost all PG 13 movies these days that these parents gladly take their boys to. Instead of coming to me about it, several of the parents threw me under the bus with the city. The city didn't care so much, and just asked me not to do it again. However, I absolutely refuse to fool with these people again and to fight with them to get their kids to all star practice, and even act like this is an important event coming up. I've had it; it's not worth the effort. I will miss the boys. But I will not miss the parents. They are nothing like the parents I had during the regular season.

Before I were to be too quick to jump on the Trey Gowdy bandwagon, I really would have liked to have seen his committee do something. They haven't held even one person in contempt or marched anyone into a jailhouse. However, they have delivered a lot of great sound bites, and in a time where saying something is the equivalent of doing something, I guess that's worth something. Or something like that...

I'm sorry. I'm bummed by a claim I worked today. It involved two log trucks colliding. One of the drivers will probably never work again. I saw the blood all over the truck. I know what his injuries are. It makes me remember my own horrible accident in 1999 with a ladder while working roof claims which almost killed me. Kept me out of meaningful work for almost 15 years. I think I'm going to go and think about things for a bit.

Ok. I got it all figured out. If my 11U soccer guys win four of the next seven games, but most importantly they have to win the last 2, they will be the city champions. They're undefeated so far so everything is falling into place. Then five of those guys will be on the All Star team hosting the state tournament and will automatically advance to the state finals. So let's go Team Thunder!

I love being a soccer coach for boys 10 and 11 years old. But it hits you a little differently when you hear from a parent that this is their son's first organized athletic event ever. His very first game ever. It was fun to watch that kid play well along with every single one of his teammates and totally destroy the other team. :) They won 6-2 and it was my keeper's first game ever as a keeper. I doubt he'll be giving up any more goals like those two again.

After 1 month with my new company, I've been promoted to Multi-Line General Adjuster.

It means there is no line of insurance or claim, from ocean marine to homeowners, that I'm not qualified to handle and no dollar limit. My dues have been paid. I've been recognized finally.

I was on Twitter for an hour or two today. I found that most of the people there are completely devoid of spines. Or other parts denoting strength and commitment, if you know what I mean. All they want to do is tweet whining outrage and news links. But then again Facebook is not much better. Personally I think social media is a waste as far as doing anything to save America. And that's why you don't see me very often. I'm just getting ready to shoot anyone who gets in the way of my ideal for a real America when the crap hits the fan. Deal with it.

The best answer I have in Mr. Brown's case is that he did not get enough parental attention when he was young, was not spanked properly when he bullied other children, and was given a pass through high school because he was a football player. As a result he became a thug who thought he could beat up even an armed police officer. As a final and not unexpected result: He died in the street. His death caused a lot of stupid people to burn down their own town in protest and destroy their livelihoods. Or at least the livelihoods of the few producers in that God forsaken town. I hope I made myself clear. The answer for you, lady, is to stop listening to the racial agitators and to start thinking for yourself. You might have a chance of becoming a self-sufficient person.

It's been a great day. I went over my soccer picks from last night when I drafted my 10-11 year old boys team. And I realize that I have four all stars from last year. Then I went up to Millbrook Alabama and took the state exam to be a full multi-line adjuster for all lines of insurance written in the state of Alabama. I scored a 90 percent. And that was without studying anything about crop insurance. And then I got home safely. Who could possibly ask for more?

In 1999, I had a severe brain injury. One of the results is I am unable to stop myself when I feel the need to speak out about something that I feel is the truth. In other words, I will tell the truth. Completely unvarnished. And if it hurts others feelings, so be it. Deal with it. It is the truth. Get over your need for social white lies. I can't do them. I've tried to hide this as long as I can, but I can't anymore. So that's it. Welcome to my world. Piss me off, and you'll hear exactly how I feel. Do something and I'll tell you exactly how I feel about it. It's cost me a lot in the past 16 years, and in this crappy little small minded town of Dothan, AL, it's been miserable. But again, I'll be telling the truth. Without a filter. You can argue with me. But what you're hearing from me comes without lies and social niceties It's exactly what I'm REALLY thinking.

Certainly learned one thing today. Telling the truth as you see it is always going to ruffle feathers and in a small town like Dothan, that can be a problem. But one thing that was a benefit: Both Sandra and I deleted a lot of people from Facebook where the word "friend" is a complete misnomer. Truth is truth. Even in a small town with small people.

Rifkind wrote in the Daily Telegraph of the "disturbing immaturity in the nationalists' assertion that the work of MI5 and GCHQ in preventing terrorist outrages in Scotland, as elsewhere in Britain, would be provided by a new Scottish intelligence agency."

Bloomberg reports that The Weather Channel (TWC) is in serious trouble. In 2008, NBC Universal bought the network for $3.5 billion. Today the hope is that the TWC can be sold for the same price. After 7 years of inflation, that is a real loss of value. Ratings have also plummeted nearly 20%, from an average of 264,000 viewers in 2011 to just 214,000 in 2013. [ 109 more words. ]

DURHAM, New Hampshire — With the border crisis raging over the summer, it was an ad from New Hampshire senate candidate and former Sen. Scott Brown that marked the transition to the Republican party writ large using the issue for its maximum impact in the upcoming midterm elections. Although Brown has long had a hawkish record on immigration, the ad was surprising in that he is running in the liberal northeast and considered relatively moderate out of necessity.

A new poll finds that Americans who are following the news of the Islamic State terror group, also known as ISIS, are more worried than ever that the terrorists are a threat to the United States, with many fearing that the media are downplaying that threat. The HuffPost/YouGov poll published this week found that a higher percentage of Americans are paying attention to the news about ISIS than paid attention to the riots in Ferguson, Missouri, and the Russian-led invasion of Ukraine.

A South African judge this week found runner Oscar Pistorius guilty of killing his girlfriend.

On the other hand, American football player Ray Rice, who punched a woman in an Atlantic City elevator, endures an indefinite ban from the NFL.

Did the Ray Rice domestic abuse case make a case against Adrian Peterson possible? The running back maintains he merely disciplined his child. A Texas grand jury agreed. But a zealous prosecutor opted to take the case to a second grand jury. They called the discipline child abuse, and Peterson faced a warrant for his arrest Friday. Whether the case involving the Baltimore All Pro running back influenced the prosecutor, or the second grand jury, in indicting the Minnesota All Pro running back will likely serve as a point of debate, along with the question of where the parent's role as disciplinarian ends and the state's role begins, if not in court than at least in the court of public opinion.

Everyone's saying "wait till next year," but this year there was a Spider-Man, some X-Men, a bunch of Apes, more Transformers, a Godzilla, a gaggle of Expendables, Adam Sandler and Melissa McCarthy -- oh, and two Marvel movies.
