I took these photos a couple of years ago. It was a very good year for fall color. I was out taking photos and on my way from one location to another when I came across this field with a beautiful spread of trees. I parked alongside the road and got out and as I did, these two horses came galloping from off in the distance towards me. I started shooting photos. They ran right up to the fence and I started talking to them as if they were models, seriously — and they were responding to me. It was a surreal experience. They struck many poses. Here are a few of the better ones.

You may or may not have heard about the absolute insanity of some schools asking students to bring permission slips in order for them to watch the President of the United States deliver his Back-to-School speech to school children. I remember when this happened in 2009 and then again in 2010 and it absolutely made my blood boil. I am by no means a nationalistic type, a patriotic, flag waving zealot…but I’ve always respected the office of the presidency. And even though I had nothing but problems with George W. Bush as president, I wouldn’t even think about disrespecting him when he is doing his job as President and giving a speech to school children.
This pisses me off beyond belief. Let me hand the microphone over to the incredible Angry Black Lady who wrote a great piece about this, go read it. Within her post, she referred back to an earlier piece she wrote when this ugly, blatant, disrespect reared it’s ugly head before. Go ABL…
Holy shit, y’all. Did you hear about what Obama did last week? He gave a back-to-school speech to our nation’s childrenses! And you know what else? He like, totally tried to turn your child into a black person. BEHIND YOUR BACK. (He also pulled the plug on your grandma, but we can talk about that later.)
This aggression will not STAND, man. I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw the news. Obama addressed a nation of young impressionable children and filled their heads with balderdash and poppycock. (That’s British for BULLSHIT.) He told kids that they should stay in school! And that they should do their homework! And that they should pass on grass!
I mean, what kind of crap is he trying to pull? How dare he tell your children to put down that X Box Virtual 3000 2.0, stop sniffing glue, and open a book? How dare he tell your children that they need to study hard and not give up on their dreams and life in general?
I mean, what’s next? I know I don’t want my kids to go to college.*** Or get a job. Or learn shit. I want my kids to become one of the next generation of idiotic fuckwits, like the ones at the townhall meetings, talkin’ ’bout “Hello, Hitler!”
I’ll tell you what, people: I can’t decide if this shit is hilarious or really really sad. I mean, exactly how stupid are people? I really want to know. On a scale of 1 to fucking idiotic, HOW STUPID ARE PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY?
Better yet, how stupid do people think we are? The Hannitys, and Limbaughs, and the Becks. The members of the Washington Asshat Brigade who PRAISED Reagan and Bush when they gave their speeches to students nationwide? Do they really think we’re so stupid? Do they think that we don’t know that the only reason they’re protesting Obama’s speech is because he’s ::gasp:: BLACK!!??
Render unto me a fucking break.
Insert string of expletives here!
