Happy New Year and Routine is Good!

Well, it’s here, the last day of 2008. I noticed there was something unusually special about today. The sun came up as usual but the way it flickered on the window and the way the leaves outside the window touched it with it’s shadow was calling my attention. When taking the dog out for her two bathroom visits earlier, I had only noticed the chill in the air but yet it was pleasant. Nature seemed to be saying, I am at peace and being nature is what I do best. Before making coffee the cat had her usual greeting of hello, now feed me. The pet bird has been chirping and singing all morning as well.

Somewhere in the usual morning routine of feeding the animals, taking the dog out and making the coffee, I realized it is the last day of 2008. Usually, I reflect on the year’s events and my life in general on December, 31. I wonder if I will feel sad or happy or both today? I ponder whether I will be excited that tomorrow I will wake up to the new year and look to the future and life will be anew? Then, it dawned on me that probably tomorrow, on January 1, 2009, it will be like today with all it’s usual routine of waking, feeding the animals and making the coffee. When I think of the many blessings in the routine of the day, that routine is special when you think of the alternative. Anonymous author.

What do Caroline Kennedy and Sarah Palin have in Common?

You got it, nothing! Well, actually they are both women I'll spot you that one but other than that they don't have a thing in common. You ask why would Caroline Kennedy be given the honor of being a Senator of New York? I haven't a clue but why did her predecessor Hillary Rodham Clinton get elected to this seat? It's got to do with money and name recognition. You see when you don't have anything to offer intellectually speaking then you had better have a name that will bring monies to the table and that's it pure and simple. Sarah Palin on the other came up from nothing like the common person. No name, no monies, a clean record and lots of smarts! The only thing is since the media is in the tank for liberal democratically affiliated agenda seekers, Sarah Palin wasn't one of 'em. She was a pawn or token if you will, by John McCain to offer her up to the conservative side of the GOP that he ticked-off earlier in the last election. The non issue with Palin was that she still didn't fit the mold for the media's future goals. For the GOP it was the right election, the right vice presidential pick but the wrong presidential choice.

See the video below the way in which New York's senatorial seat selection has been validated by the powers that be on how they intend on replacing Hillary. What they are offering is that all a person has to do is to go to Harlem with Al "Pencil Sharp" Sharpton and eat some soul food of cornbread, turnip greens and peas. Poor Hillary she continues to get dumped on. There may be a dark cloud over her.

Heckle and Jeckle meet Jay Jacobs at Auburn Airport

Well not really but Auburn's athletic director did get heckled by a disgruntled Auburn fan(See video below). If you listened to any of the radio talk shows today in the state, you would have heard others just as upset. This all comes too quickly on the heels of supposedly the quitting of head football coach Tommy Tubberville. Auburn officials stood by the claim that he quit on his own and wasn't fired even though Tubberville's own mother Olive, said, "He was fired."

Auburn officials have fasttracked the hiring of Gene Chizik, the head coach from Iowa State whose record was a whopping 5 wins to 19 losses in a year. Compare his record to Tommy Tubberville's 85% win ratio over 10 years and it would make one wonder why they hired a no-name coach making two million dollars while Alabama's Crimson Tide just beat the socks off of them with a top picked coach Saban who makes nearly five million a year.

If you don't believe me, read what an anonymous blogger said in a local newspaper post today:

"What an awful mess for Auburn...
You lost 7 games...
You got beat by Vandy (lol)...
You got beat by Georgia...
You got embarrassed by Alabama...
You fired a coach who averaged 8-9 wins...
You hired a coach who averages 2-3 wins...
Nobody knows what the offense or the defense will look like next year...
ESPN is calling you a bunch of racists...

Could it get any worse? Oh yeah...Bama is back....ROLL TIDE!"

Can it get any worse for Auburn?
I guess they could have hired Mike Schula.

Shoes hurled at President Bush

Stick and stones will break my bones, but SHOES will never hurt me? No they won't hurt, if you're a good ducker, like President Bush did this past weekend.

An Iraqi Reporter took aim at President Bush with the ultimate insult of throwing his stinky size ten shoes at the President. It didn't work, either the President was a superior ducker or the Iraqi Reporter was a lousy marksman, maybe both.

UFO's, What are they really?

Well, I guess if you believe the bible and that God actually exists then you just might believe in the supernatural. That's right the supernatural. The above clip is from a Larry King show dating July 2008. His guests were government officials who claimed that the United States military have had contact for some time with something unknown and unexplained. We call them, UFOs-unidentified flying objects, and included in this category are the Bigfoot type creatures, alien abductions, Fatima apparitions, mutilated animals and poltergeists and other unexplained phenomena. Link to view entire Larry King UFO clip.

Not heard of these before or thought that they are uniquely related? Well, you've not been watching the television news lately. In one corner of thought on the unexplained sightings and occurances you might think this phenomena or the existence of aliens might not be fully disclosed but only partially which may include an explanation of a government cover-up like the Larry King interview suggests.

In another corner of thought, you might think that there’s a simple explanation which would focus attention around the forces of good(benevolent) and evil(malevolent)beings. According to biblical text these have always existed. The existence of angels good and evil have also been historically written about and painted in art numerous times acting as a historical reference. The historical references are a reflected over many cultures all over the world. If you entertain the biblical explanation on simply a pure historical context then, Bigfoot type creatures, alien abductions, Fatima apparitions, mutilated animals and poltergeists make logical sense when it comes to the spiritual side of the supernatural. This means, good and evil angels are operating in the unseen world only to pop-in and out of ours to either benevolently help us for good or to malevolently harm us for evil sake. According to biblical text, in the end, evil is defeated.

Take for example in our newest media that we have at our fingertips, the internet you can search for all kinds of examples of supernatural phenomena. Today's most popular search tool is A search for UFOs, Prophet Yahweh (video), fallen angels, chupacabra, crop circles, etc will bring up many of these examples of unseen-supernatural occurances that may or may not be fully explained or identified. Whether they are real or staged the truth is many eye witnesses have seen and experienced the phenomena which have ultimately left them with intense fear. They claim that fear was the biggest thing they experienced when coming away from this. The other thing they indicated was that it changed their world view forever. Read the story about The Mothman.

Author, L.A. Marzulli has extensively researched the "giants" of old from biblical and historical texts and has linked them to supernatural phenomena. His fascinating trilogy, The Nephilim, though fictional, is thought provoking and leads the reader into entertaining the idea of placing the giants into today's world. Even if you are not interested in biblical text, these books are page turners. Author Marzulli has followed this series up with the best selling non-fiction book, Politics, Prophecy and the Supernatural which encompasses many of the same issues found in his trilogy but in a real time fashion regarding the end times prophecy. For more information visit or see the author's own introduction to his trilogy on youtube below.

Obama Voters Speak Out on the President Elects' Colleagues

Unfortunately, these voters didn't have a clue when they cast their vote. They have been fooled by the biased media and some pretty slick campaigning. They are about to find out come January 20th(Inauguration Day) that President Elect is not in office as a result of the American Idol Show.

Monkey Teases Tigers

If you need a laugh and some amusement,
you gotta see this funny video. One of Matt Murphy's favorites.

Opelika, AL woman dying, wants homes for 32 Cats picked up an Associated Press report that an Opelika, Alabama woman dying of cancer and her last request was to find homes for her 32 cats.

Evidentally, she had boxes for each cat with the request in all capital letters, "PLEASE DO NOT KILL" as well as, "each cat's name, description, age and medical summary."

The unusual thing was she left a handwritten note, signed by "Miss R".

A Wasted Vote by Chuck Baldwin

Article from Website

Monday, 13 October 2008

When asked why they will not vote for a third party candidate, many people will respond by saying something like, "He cannot win." Or, "I don't want to waste my vote." It is true: America has not elected a third party candidate since 1860. Does that automatically mean, however, that every vote cast for one of the two major party candidates is not a wasted vote? I don't think so.
In the first place, a wasted vote is a vote for someone you know does not represent your own beliefs and principles. A wasted vote is a vote for someone you know will not lead the country in the way it should go. A wasted vote is a vote for the "lesser of two evils." Or, in the case of John McCain and Barack Obama, what we have is a choice between the "evil of two lessers."

Trick-or-Treat...smell my feet...give me...

. . . Something Good To Eat?
It's that time of year and Congress has pulled out a good one in her ol' bag of tricks with the passage of the 'Bailout' Bill. It's just in time for Halloween to or should I say just in time for the presidential election.

The bureacrats in Washington yelled, "crisis, Crisis, CRISIS" all week long but the American people were not convinced that there truly was one. The cry of the wolf every four years from our elected leaders are to help cover a multitude of sins but to what purpose? This only serves their purpose. It's unfortunate that it happens right up next to election time, while they have our utmost attention. We watch at a distance the push and pull of the 'pork taffy' until they get it just right and then, BAM! They pull the trigger and it's taffy-Washington style not constituent minded.

In Alabama, our congressional representatives did their share of the pull. They voted the same way the second time as they did the first time on the Bailout Bill. In district 6, Jefferson/Shelby County area representative Spencer Bachus helped lead the charge in getting the bill passed. It was also reported on various radio stations in Birmingham, Alabama that he indicated his decision would not be popular in the district. Well DAAAAAAAA! Why'd he do it then? Our own Senators, Richard Shelby and Jeff Sessions voted NO! It is the single most expensive and expansive grab for socialism yet. The Democrat leadership immediately announced after the vote that this was only the beginning and other items such as universal healthcare coverage would be on the future menu.

Here are just a few of the 'special' ingredients in Washington's 'pork taffy' found in the latest Bailout Bill:

Sec. 211. Transportation fringe benefit to bicycle commuters

Sec. 308. Increase in limit on cover over of rum excise tax to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

Sec. 309. Extension of economic development credit for American Samoa.

Sec. 312. Deduction allowable with respect to income attributable to domestic production activities in Puerto Rico.

Sec. 317. Seven-year cost recovery period for a motorsports racing track facility.

Sec. 322. Tax incentives for investment in the District of Columbia.

Sec. 325. Extension and modification of duty suspension on wool products; wool research fund;wool duty refunds.

Is there any wonder why our elected representatives have such a low approval rating with the American people? hummm? Stayed tuned though Bailout Bill Take Two will be coming soon to a congressman or senator near you!

Palin VS. Biden, it's alternate worlds!

With approximately 35 days to go to see who we elect as the next leader of the free-world, Americans have really botched this political cycle. Yes, I said Americans, how do you spell dumb, dumber or dumbest? Regardless what you think of the candidates, you will hear someone this week not satisfied about any given choice. What has happened to us?

Our current culture allows the media to dictate our news as well as the person we vote for. If you don't believe me watch CNN or MSNBC and then watch FoxNews after the Vice-Presidential debate on Thursday, Oct. 2, 2008. You will think you live in an alternate world. You can even look at the latest polls. Who really knows if those are truthful. Who are those people they call anyway? I've never gotten a call. Neither has anyone I know. It's uncanny. What are they good for?

I knew we were in for a wild ride last year. During the primaries, Governor Mike Huckabee as a presidential candidate was referred to, as evil. It's a wonder they didn't pin some other horrible thing on him like he's really an alien from outer space or he created the internet.

In the media, the newspapers, talking heads and pundits have painted people of faith or rather the far-right/Conservative Christian as if they have a horn growing out from the middle of their forehead? It's ridiculus. What has the far-left/Commie Liberals gained? See what I mean? There are too many acquisations that have been bantied about from one side to another unlike any I've seen in previous political cycles. One thing is for sure, we as Americans are sliding down a slippery slope and I don't know if we will be capable of getting our footing again. God help us.

The Free Market lives to see another day!!

"Voters feel government has no business intervening in free markets, . . ." reported Philip Delves Broughton from The First Post article yesterday.
Why did six of the seven Congressional Representatives in Alabama vote 'yes' to the biggest single government grab of socialism yet in the Bail Out which would give credit markets 700bn? With this affirmative vote, they are essentially saying that the free markets aren't working and we need to join socialized Europe regardless of their own personal reasons. Hats-off to Congressman Robert Aderholt in the fourth District for helping to keep our free market intact.

I cannot think of one legitimate reason in the scope of what our founding fathers orginally set out to accomplish with our freedoms why our representatives would have cast a 'yes' vote. The only possible reason I could think of is that our Alabama delegation thought a 'yes' vote will validate their recognition that 'something' needs to be done. While that may be true, giving a pass and our hard earned money to those who have made these stupid decisions is unacceptable.

To add salt to the wound while the atmosphere is wafting with the smell of vinegar, the leader of the House, Nancy Pelsoi, stepped up and used her power to try and force a complete 'yes' vote. We now know it didn't work and later she blamed the Republican Party once again. Unfortunately, the truth was lost. Leader Pelosi didn't get the job done and the mostly all-male club parted company with her vote. I guess it's true that men don't like being bullied by a woman and told what to do!!

The most tragic part of all this is President Bush is leading the charged along with Nancy Pelosi and the liberal democrats or should I say the social-side of our country.

Socialism Defined by Merriam Webster:

1: any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods;

2: a system of society or group living in which there is no private property b: a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state;

3: a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done.

While growing up, I learned and saw that government control is never the answer and that it creates more problems than it solves. The free market does. It is just that, it's free(without government intervention) to resolve it's own problems.

Matt Murphy loves cats so much, he had one for breakfast!

If you listen to the Murphy Show regularly, you will discover Matt's true love of CATS. Just this week, one of his shows was mostly dedicated to those fancy felines. He spoke to callers about how "juggling cats" were part of his favorite past-time.

(Photo left) Pierre, a fan, listens online daily.

I believe cats from all over the world-wide web and the local listening area participate in calling the show with phony names like 'Buck', 'Cornbread', and 'Ken'.

Even the devoted Georgia Bulldawgs love cats.

9-11 plus 7 years never forget

"Seven years ago today, some very mentally disturbed people flew our very own planes into our very own buildings."

That is what I heard a mother telling her children today, Sept. 11, 2008.

Well, as adults you and I know, 9-11-01 is much more than that. Many things have been discussed about the event that some have deemed as the day America changed. Today is being remembered with ceremonies all across America. How have you remembered it?
Since that day in 2001, I've asked, "What's next? Are other mentally disturbed/misguided people planning another sinister attack?" Over the past seven years, reports have indicated, additional attacks have been thwarted but you and I know it's coming. The day those people that hate America will succeed to do us harm again. That day and today was and is as much about me, as an American, considered a defining moment in my lifetime. I will never forget.

Has anyone found Oprah's eyelashes?

Oprah Winfrey "cried her eyelashes off" while Barack Obama gave his speech last week at the Democratic National Convention. No one has come forward claiming they have found them yet. Early on in his 2008 campaign, she pledged her support to him by opening up with him on a road show in Columbia, S.C. and then interviewed Michelle Obama his wife later on. Prior to the current campaign, she had an affinity toward him with an interview back in 2004.

This week, Oprah had the opportunity to interview Governor Sarah Palin as the McCain choice for vice president. This would have been a wonderful opportunity for Oprah to give both sides of politics, to her mostly women viewers but, she said, "when I decided that I was going to take my first public stance in support of a candidate, I made the decision not to use my show as a platform for any of the candidates." Well, I believe it's a little too late for that sort of reasoning. Maybe she's disgruntled over not having found her eyelashes yet? Whatever the reason, it is apparent that Miss Winfrey has made her committment to her candidate of choice Barack Obama. If only he had of picked her for VP, this would have all made perfect sense.

If you find her eyelashes, please mail them to Matt Murphy at:

Hillary NOT proud to be a wife? Why?

At the DNC(Democratic National Convention) last Tuesday evening. Presidential/Vice Presidential possibility Hillary Clinton said, "I'm here tonight as a proud mother, a proud democrat, as a proud senator from New York, a proud American, and a proud supporter of Barack Obama." Poor Bill! Isn't his damsel in distress proud of him too? After all, he's the one who got her this far and she has stood by her him throughout all this fumblings in his political career.

Democrat Presidential HOPEful Barack OBama announced his vice presidential nominee, Joe Biden at 3:00 am. Why 3:00 am? Hillary had made a comment some time ago questioning the legitimacy of OBama, if president, being ready to successfully deal with a 3:oo am call about some dire national crisis? Could she have been alluding to his preparedness to handle war? The timing of his VP announcement was a stab at her and her comment about his ability.

Looking back at Hillary's recent 2008 run for the White House, I will miss guessing what color outfits she will come up with next. Her yellow one was one of my favorites which got plenty of bumble bee comments from the media. The latest one that will live in my mind forever will the the orange one. I call that one her, Halloween Surprise which was well coordinated with Chelsea's basic black. Hillary's bright orange pant suit, reminds me of the Charlie Brown story about the "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown". Somewhere I read that Hollywood claimed that orange was the new power color. I guess they were wrong. Maybe this was her debutt as a children's book author with her daughter. After all, other than being Senator, she will have lots of free time on her hands. If the writing thing doesn't work out, she could be cast for a part in the movie remake, "The Wizard of Oz". Possible casting parts include: Dororthy, Toto and the Wicked Witch of the West. I liked the part where evil was conquered and the witch said, "Help me, I'm melting." You decide which part suits her best?

Maybe Bill has been picking out all those colorful suits.

Illegals leaving U.S. and heading home to Mexico

Finally, someone is calling these people by their earned title, "ILLEGALS" (Illegal immigrants which means, according to Wikipedia-"illegal immigration refers to immigration across national borders in a way that violates the immigration laws of the destination country." Let me put it simply - law breakers. Yes, they are coming here for a better life. The U.S. economy has recently fallen on some economically tough times with gas and food prices jumping to record high levels but it has forced them to return "HOME" for better opportunities. I thought I would never hear those words! It's ashame that our goofy economy had to take a dip in order to force these to return home. Unfortunately, it wasn't our elected representatives recognizing this out of necessity and lawfulness.

What Joe Biden says about Barack Obama

I'm guessing that Joe Biden at the time of this debate had no idea these words would come back to haunt him and Obama. If it did matter, Biden wouldn't be Obama's pick. With Obama, it's like when we were kids in school and throwing wet toilet tissue on the ceiling of the bathroom - it's whatever sticks to the ceiling, gets to stay.

And let's not forget Michelle Obama's words "For the first time in my adult life time I am proud of my country" comment. Words mean things but apparently the country doesn't to her. Maybe her husband running for office is in the wrong country, maybe China would do for both of them.

Why Mike Huckabee will not be the VP Pick.

Murphy Monkey picks VPs for Presidential Contenders
The pass is long, our guy is running....running and................... he catches it! Wait this is not a football game but the 2008 Presidential Race which includes picking someone for a Vice President. Both the Democrat and Republican Parties will be choosing who they think would help get them elected this year. The person who would essentially bring much favor, and votes for them this Fall. It is anyone's guess who these will be but it is interesting reading the blogs, watching the T.V. talking heads and hearing the talk radio chat boxes weighing in on this occurance.
The little Murphy Monkey will go ahead and put his two-cents worth of opinion in on who he believes the possible VP's will be.

On the Democrat side for Barack Obama, the Murphy Monkey chooses for Vice Presidential pick, Hillary Clinton. The reasons are because she has already been in the White House with her President husband, Bill. She is a woman and it is a 'woman's turn' to hold this high office(which is what I hear all the time). She is a Senator and she was Barack's Democrat contender for the same position recently. The clincher that does it with adding Hillary to the mix is that she is the only one who can deliver the votes OBama needs to close the deal and obtain the victory.
On the opposite side of the isle, the Republican Vice Presidential pick for John McCain will not be Mike Huckabee.Blogs indicate that Huckabee is one of the top choices that will solidify the conservative base which is key to carrying the McCain Team to the inauguration but I don't believe that is enough. My choice for Vice President is J.C. Watts. Why J.C. Watts? He is experienced. He has been a Congressman, a professional football player and a pastor. More importantly, he is a conservative, a pro-lifer and is black. If J.C. Watts is chosen as VP, it will be a surprise and few will see it coming but it makes sense. Unlike Hillary, who there really is no one else for the Democrat Candidate to choose, Watts will be the perfect fit for today's GOP Presidential Candidate, here and now.
What others are saying about J.C.Watts as VP.

Alabama Bigfoot Found in Georgia...Could it be the mother lode of finds!

In 2001, Wayne Ford, wrote an article in the Athens Dailey News/Athens Banner- Herald suggesting that the film footage of a bigfoot in Northern Californa in 1967 was the "gold nugget of Bigfoot lore". If that is true,then the mother lode of bigfoot lore has been found in 2008 in North Georgia.

Several reports indicate the discovery of a deceased ape/human-like body. Read article and see photos in the Atlanta Constitution Journal.

Will there be others fleeing our state coinciding with the announcement from Forbes Magazine that Nick Saban is the "Sports' most powerful Coach". Maybe the human side of the creature can read and inadvertently got his hands on the article. Suppose he fled in terror only to take refuge in the mountains of north Georgia? Whatever the reason, it could be discovered that he has Alabama roots! Next thing you know we will be seeing UFO's hovering over our cities, with aliens claiming they are God and pulling along Go BAMA or OBAMA 4 President banners!

Check out the website, "Searching for Bigfoot" for more information regarding the huge press conference scheduled to reveal evidence on the bigfoot's DNA and photos. News conference will be from 2:00 to 3:00pm CST, Friday, Aug. 15, 2008.
Finally, we can look to the Alabama coach's power in like to the bigfoot issue by entertaining the idea that the Bama victory will flee to our neighbors to the east on Sept. 27 when the Crimson Tide goes to Athens to play Georgia that day.

Alabama School Children- Seat Belts

Why are Alabamians having to decide if school children actually need seat belts on buses to keep them safe? Isn't that a given or is it really a matter of funds? Alabama is a state that has far more takers in the governmental money pot than let's say our neighbors to the east and southeast. They have large economies of working Americans that pay plenty of taxes. In Alabama we have more retired and governmental needy people living in the state. Currently, Governor Bob Riley says, "We need to prove once and for all whether or not this is the right thing to do." He is referring to a study that will take three years to determine whether it is "the right thing." Could this be the big issue for our next gubernatorial race in Alabama in 2012?

Who in the past decided not to include seat belts for Alabama's children anyway? Read the full article: "No rush to put seat belts on buses" in the Huntsville Times.

The Murphy Monkey while on an outing in Spain Park(Veteran's Park) in Hoover, Alabama considers wakeboarding the best way to spend the day in the water behind a truck.

Murphy Monkey Goes Green?

While eating breakfast at a popular local eatery, the Murphy Murphy went green. It wasn't because of the delicious food that they serve but the monkey discovered while chatting with his friends and watching television that our presumptive republican presidential nominee, John McCain supports the green effect and that global warming is real. Propping up this unverifiable phenomenon means that you go green. McCain's strategic move away from the current Bush administration is supposedly making him look more un-Bush-like or less-conservative or should I say, mod-er-ate?
I'm guessing on my part that he believes the conservative vote is a shoe-in, that he doesn't need to work to get it that he's got it, but does he? The water cooler conversation says much more.

Whatever the reason, it's not the first time he has played this scenario with politics and issues. Read up on the following as a refresher:
"McCain-Feingold — the most brazen frontal assault on political speech since Buckley v. Valeo.
McCain-Kennedy — the most far-reaching amnesty program in American history.
McCain-Lieberman — the most onerous and intrusive attack on American industry — through reporting, regulating, and taxing authority of greenhouse gases — in American history.
McCain-Kennedy-Edwards — the biggest boon to the trial bar since the tobacco settlement, under the rubric of a patients’ bill of rights.
McCain-Reimportantion of Drugs — a significant blow to pharmaceutical research and development, not to mention consumer safety................."

Read article: McCain urges free-market principles to reduce global warming by the Associated Press. The title in itself is a contradiction and is in opposition to our free-market way of doing things in this country.
Maybe next week Senator McCain and the Murphy Murphy will go red or orange or even a combination of colors. What's your favorite COLOR?
