Tightness In My Chest

I feel like I should be hyper-ventilating. Like my body’s trying to, but I just don’t know how. I got up a little while ago and called Volvo in Hickory, honestly expecting to hear that the truck was ready. After all, I hadn’t talked to them since yesterday morning. Well, they haven’t started working on […]

Got The Truck Back

We got the truck back. Well, the police found it in Gastonia. My dispatcher called a little after noon and told us. We went over and talked to the police. We expected to be able to recover the truck, but the wiring harness in the steering column had been cut and the truck had been […]

Truck Stolen

Well. I won’t be leaving the house any time soon. When Mara ran me out to the truck this morning the truck was gone. Someone stole my truck. We filed a police report and notified USX. My dispatcher is supposed to call later. The guy Mara talked to at USX said they’d probably put me […]

Getting Ready to Go

Getting ready to leave. I haven’t had much sleep. Like a dumbass I stayed up longer than I should have, and then I couldn’t get to sleep when I did lay down. I can claim maybe three hours of sleep. On the upside my load doesn’t deliver until tomorrow afternoon in Ohio. The plan right […]

Commandment Displays Allowed on Some Government Property

Well, here we go again. Given that the politicians have re-visited the flag burning issue, it was only a matter of time until the issue of the 10 Commandments on Government property came front and center again. Christian Conservatives are determined that they can pretend that non-Christians do not exist in the United States, and […]

U'r Miles Are Bad

I’m about to lay down for a bit. Looking at what time it is, it probably doesn’t appear that I’m getting ready to leave again. But I figure the truck isn’t going to be ready until this afternoon (if it’s ready by then). I’m hoping I can get USX to let me leave tomorrow morning. […]

Wiccan Father Still Fights for Parental Rights

I just posted an article to The Watch Alert archive about the Wiccan parents in Indianapolis (Thomas E. Jones Jr., pictured, and Tammie U. Bristol) who, as a part of their divorce decree, were prohibited by a judge from involving their son in their religion. I am incensed by this. This action is being quietly […]

Reality Sets In For Marijuana Advocates

The Federal Government’s war against the American people stumbled into the mainstream press of late. Well, that was the intention, of course. The DEA went after some of the pot clubs in California that provided medical marijuana for patients (the clubs are legal in California, but are illegal according to Federal law). This, of course, […]

Flag Burning Amendment Should Be A Non-Issue

I haven’t addressed this issue lately, and some people have been wondering why. Well, it wasn’t because I didn’t catch it. Quite frankly, I’ve been waiting to see how it went. For those who don’t know, it went badly. The House of Representatives approved a Constitutional Amendment to ban burning the American flag. This will […]

A Long Overdue Change

Okay, troops. I’ve been goofing off for a long time while I waited for the inspiration that would provide a direction for The Watch. Long-time subscribers to The Watch Alert mailing list know that we’ve been wandering in the wilderness for quite some time now. Well, as it so happens, The Watch has devolved to […]
