For the first time in US history, we’ve got a national security crisis that comes from within our own borders. The threat has nothing to do with illegal immigration or Muslim extremists. The Founding Fathers couldn’t have possibly looked down the tunnel of time and seen this danger.

The threat is such that Homeland Security is powerless to stop it.

The danger is so real that our Department of Defense is also unable to stem the growing menace.

You should be alarmed.

I know that I am.

If you want to know what the danger is, read it on the blog.

STRONGER, FASTER, SMARTER!
New research says that exercise, in addition to making us stronger and faster, also makes us SMARTER! (I KNEW I was smarter than you slacker-dog-loser-gutter-slugs at ease in Turdeville!) Read more about this ground breaking research.

TRIATHLON TRAINING
Wanna do a triathlon??
There are two short distance triathlons near by that would be a great first race for newbie triathletes.

And the other is the CATS Triathlon (500 yard swim, 14 mile bike, 3 mile run) on September 16. I’ll put together a training team for one or both events. We’ll have a no obligation information meeting in a couple of weeks. Stay tuned!

SENATOR JOHN FORD FUNDRAISER 5K

I’ve been so distraught over the injustice and railroading of the Honorable John Ford (64), that I’m organizing a 5K fundraiser to help him defend his honor. It is obvious that he is the victim of an overzealous FBI, bent on trying to besmirch the good name of a highly respected public servant. Mr. Ford’s 26 year old girlfriend, Mina Knox, an aspiring actress and former cheerleader, will be on hand to give out age group awards and to teach us the same salsa dancing moves that she taught Mr. Ford on that yacht in Miami. Registration for the SENATOR JOHN FORD FUNDRAISER 5K is $1,000 or a donated Rolex. 😉
