LOOKIE LOU

My name has been misappropriated. A public agency has a program which encompasses Lou in its title. Lookie Lou. The agency is the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. FWC for short.

Lookie Lou involves state wildlife officers searching for violations, safety errors, etc. while out on a separate mission. Ever vigilant.

Yesterday for example 29 Cubans successfully made it to American soil. Good for them! They set foot on Loggerhead Key. The FWC went out to pick them up. On the return trip, the FWC crew came upon fisherman with four undersized snappers and also made several boat safety stops.

Lou is universal. A name from the ages. I have used it for eight years as Key West Lou, 79 years as Lou. The FWC has been in business since 1999. I do not know when the FWC started Lookie Lou.

My blog talk radio show went well last night. Tuesday Talk with Key West Lou. I had a good time doing the show.

No boots on the ground appears to have drawn the most comment. Obama says no U.S. boots on the ground. The European and Arab nations who have joined with the U.S. to combat ISIS have all said no boots on the ground from their end. All willing to provide air assistance. Nothing more.

Who fights the war then? Unless nuclear bombs are used (which I cannot conceive the U.S doing), a war cannot be won by air action alone. Soldiers on the ground are always required.

My conclusion was and is that military contractors would be hired by the U.S. to do the fighting. Mercenaries. Solely in the beginning and partially later on if American ground troops are sent in. My question was why have we not been told this? The government should be honest with the American people. Lay it all out now. The good, bad and indifferent.

A physiotherapy session yesterday. I was not impressed with the treatment. Be that as it may, I threw my back out while doing it. The therapy exercises were extremely simple. One short movement however and my back hurt! Hurt all night and still hurts this morning. I am back to where I was.

My back hurt, I felt sorry for myself. Decided I was entitled to a treat. My lunch was a chocolate milk shake at 2Scoops. Didn’t help my back. Did help my state of mind.

Some afternoon time was spent in final preparation for last night’s blog talk radio show.

The line re saturday’s Syracuse/Maryland game has changed. It dropped from 2 to 1 1/2. Syracuse still favored.

I know I am sticking my neck out. However, I think Syracuse walks away with this one. By a significant number. I was impressed with Syracuse’s play against Central Michigan last week.

Enjoy your day!

  1. No boots on the ground ? Yep, its all about transparency and we know this is the most transparent administration we’ve ever had. Its all about fundamental change.
    There have been additional ‘boots’ sent recently, supposedly not for combat though. Our leader loves to juggle words.
    Police in an Upstate NY city have just made an arrest of a store keeper for recruiting ISIS ‘lone wolf’ fighters.
    Its now being reported ISIS fighters are coming across our southern border.
    Don’t want to use Nukes. I think its about time to turn that area into a sheet of glass.

      I fear that day will come sooner than we think. The whole world appears to be on the brink. Even the Pope calls things WW III.

  2. The is no military solution to the conflict in the mid-east, a sociological/religious unbalance with roots that are many centuries deep. Bombs and bullets will not rectify deep hatred, fear and misunderstanding. We are wasting precious capital and American lives, and distracting ourselves from the truly solvable challenges we face at home.

    I certainly agree that we are wasting ‘capital’ and American lives. And, we certainly need to spend more time trying to fix our problems here ‘at home’.
    But, we cannot stick our heads in the sand hoping the mid-east problem is not our problem and/or that it will go away. Its not going away, its here, and, its growing.
    We may not be at war with radical muslims, but, they’re at war with us.
