Stuff To Trade For Bicycles Or Guitars

As results of shamelessly exploiting the homeless in the making of Homeless For The Holiday: The Documentary, Tulsa Indy Gazetter sponsors Tent City Tea Society, on the road again, makin' music with their friends. We refurbish musical instraments for them. Currently, we need guitars, acoustic or electric.

We also sponsor Reality Bikes, a bicycle co-op, that refurbishes
bicycles for the homeless to use as transportation. Any kind of
bicycles with wheels of 20 inch, 24 inch, 26 inch, 27 inch, 700c.

We deliver items to the end users by bicycle. But, it would be nice to have an old, beat-up pickup truck with a running motor. Not neccessary, but would be nice. If we do get a pickup, it would probably be a rolling work of art.

HickMobile. Picture a crushed bicycle and rider permenantly welded on the grille. The driver side door is painted with small icons of bicycles. Kinda like how fighter pilot mark their kills on their planes. Then, wrap the rest of the contraption with the state flag of Mississippi.

Currently, we have the following stuff to trade for bicycles, bicycle
parts, or guitars and amps:

1 One ton log splitter(manual)

1 microwave oven
1 small office refrigerator
1 full size home refrigerator
3 ceiling fans
50 1 Square Foot ceramic floor tiles
Wood flooring adhesive
5 Bat houses
10 sections of fencing
Assorted lumber--2X4, plywood, trim, etc.
21 inch color computer monitor
15 inch color computer monitor
Apple McIntosh computer---museum quality
A huge pile of T-shirts
1 hammer and various hand tools
1 full size sleghammer
1 full size axe
1 full size pick
1 pack of roofing shingles
2 extra partial rolls of roofing felt
Weekly truck loads of outdated, excess newspaper and magazines.

And, two Sgt. Pecker Party Penises. (Don't ask. And, NO! We do not have any gay positions, political or otherwise.)

Local Minister on Wiretap List?

Local celebrity minister, Carlton Pearson, is believed to be on President Bush's wiretap list. Bishop Pearson has preached his own brand of gospel of inclusion, i.e. everybody is saved, incurred the wrath of God-fearing, Hell-believing Christians worldwide, and tarred and feathered as Public Heretic d'Jour.

Born-again, former drunk, W is pissed.

More Intelligent Design

This will be a regular post on comments we wish we could have made on Tulsa's Talk Radio, but, for one reason or another, were censored.

UPDATE: 28 DEC 2005
--Get your gun banned or wiretap your ass.
KFAQ had a bit on the question of what would make you angry most: the government taking away your gun or wiretapping your conversations and e-mails. This is the wrong question. The way the question was asked gave us the impression of KFAQ's biased supporting illegal wiretaps. So, what else is new?

We like KFAQ. But, wish they'd lose the dogma already!

Actually, this morning's show is more interesting than Joe Kelly on KRMG. The bloke has zilch POV. But, we still enjoy listening from time to time, especially while multi-tasking in the bathroom. NP who?

Most of the callers said they would rather be wiretapped rather have their guns taken away. Then, someone named Bubba said something really strange, "Wiretaps are the reason why we need the Second Amendment." To which KFAQ responded, "So, love the country, hate the government?" Then, Bubba was cut off.

It remains to be seen who exactly the President wiretapped. Based on W's responses and the way he responded, people like Rosa Parks, Fred Korematsu, Cindy Sheehan, and Anthony Romero would probably appear on the wiretap list.

Why are KFAQ callers so keen on allowing their First Amendment rights to be taken away so fast? So, they can have an excuse to exercise their Second Amendment rights? Make mah day, muthafucker!

Then, another bit about Blue Star Mothers got our imagination boiling. Blue Star Mothers send "care" packages to US service members. Stuff like razors, beef jerky, and deodorant. A caller said baby wipes are hot items.

A few former active-duty Marines among us thought the one item BS Moms has not included on their list: condoms. They can be forgiven. After all, they are moms. Every mom wants to believe their kids are just on a long church campout.

Sex, like a good hot meal, is absolutely neccessary to maintain morale in the field. But, company commanders rarely talk safe sex.

And, condoms are especially neccessary for female counterinsurgent Special Forces who need to torture a male Muslim bad dude for info, without really crossing the line into cruel and unusual treatment.

And, they make great toy ballons for kids.

Condoms are readily available in the PX. But, not always available in the field or the FOBs. To provide this much needed commodity, Mothers Informed about Safe Sex in the Military, MISS Military, will send safe sex packages to any servicemember who request them at tulsaindygazetter (at) yahoo (dot) com. The packs include three condoms and lube.
