It's all relative

Access to affordable healthcare. A favorite phrase of
Democrats. My problem with this is that it already
exist. Affordable is relative. Everyone in this country
has access to affordable healthcare. It's just a matter
of how much and what quality that will fit into people's
budget. Naturally this differs from person to person and
family to family. As it should, because this is America.

Don't get me wrong, health care is expensive. It would be
great if it cost less. Though, as always, adding more
government to the mix isn't gonna make it happen.
This one is best left to the marketplace.

Dude, where's my money?

If I have to listen to one more person talk
about Bill Clinton's three surpluses while
he was in office, I'm gonna puke. Ok, he
had a surplus. Could someone explain to me
how that's a good thing. If it came about
through spending cuts, then ok. But, we all
(or at least I think) know that didn't happen.
Basically, he squeezed soo much taxes out of
us, he couldn't figure out how to spend it all.
And he pats himself on the back for that?

Tax hikes or spending cuts, either way, that
dude owes me some money!

Are you better...

off with "W" in the Whitehouse? That's the question
the conservative pundits are asking. That's a fair
question, but I have a better one. Are we as a
country better off with "W" in charge? No.

I can't stand the intellectually lazy people who
say there's no difference between the Dems
and the Repubs, but lately they're more right
than they realize. Bush is a nice guy, but take
a close look at his policies and what he has
actually done. Except the war on terror, there's
not much difference from what Kerry would do.
He has actually spent more on social programs
(how I hate social programs) than most Dems
could get through Congress. Not to mention the
loss of freedoms, lack of real border security,
and the kissing of Mexico's President Fox's ass.

So please, do yourself and the country a favor
and vote for someone outside these two parties
if you can. I know...voting for somebody who is
more than likely going to lose sucks, but if we
don't demand better, we'll never get it.

Beer identity

This Forbes article talks about how the U.S. is
losing it's beer identity. Big deal. What identity?
The one for creating beer with no taste in large
quantities.

As a person who brews their own beer, my
favorites come from my basement or the local
brewpubs. Coors, Bud, and company(the crap
associated with the U.S.) all suck. The Canadians
and South Africans can have'em. I wouldn't feed
that stuff to my worst enemy.

Damned peaceniks

Will someone please explain to this dumbass
that peace isn't the absence of war. If you are
gonna buy into this hippie nonsense then you
ought to have an intelligent response for doing so.

If the rest of the Puerto Ricans are anything like
this guy, why in the hell would we offer them
statehood? I'm embarrassed I still have family
living there.

What a waste of a beautiful island.

Just a survey

Which Fantasy/SciFi Character Are You?



"An accomplished diplomat who can virtually do no wrong,
you sometimes know it is best to rely on the council of
others while holding the reins."

For years my wife said I reminded her of Captain Picard,
maybe she was on to something. Though my version of
diplomacy tends to be a little more heavy handed.

Thanks to Pink Kitty for the survey.

Bumper sticker wisdom

Stupidity should be painful.

Show 'em what time it is

This guy isn't screwing around. He knows the proper way
to handle insurgents and it's about time. Someone has to
do it and we're too worried about looking bad.

Who says the carburetor is dead?

Because of technology like this, the carbureted automobile may
be increasing in popularity. Well, at least with the criminal
types who need a get-a-way car. Though I'm sure someone
will come up with some simple way of defeating the "car zapper",
which will make all that research seem like a waste of time.

The terrorists within

The government focusing on terrorist disrupting our elections
is a waste of time. They just need to make sure nobody gets hurt.
I already know the elections will be screwed up. So why worry
about terrorist when we still have the Florida voters(excluding
the Sicilian & company) to mess things up. Actually, I can't
be too hard on the voters. The corrupt people running the
polling places are the ones most at fault.

The 2k4 Election(2k part 2). The sequel that outdoes the first.

Some vacation

Taking this week off was a big mistake. I spent the
whole time so far fixing shit someone else broke
for free. Free sucks...when I'm not on the recieving
end. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind helping people
when they're in a jam, but when it's due to sheer
stupidity it get's old quick.

This is the very reason I didn't tell anyone I was
taking off. Shit, it's like everyone I know has
some sort of vacation radar, they just sense when
I'm not working.

Well, I better get back to work. I still have some
painting to do in my own house. I better get it
done before someone else needs some free labor.

Star spangled weekend

I just want to wish everyone a great
Independence Day. Go and have some
fun. Enjoy what little freedom we
still have. :-)

First customer

This piece of garbage sooo deserves to be the
first in line for "The Multiple Death Penalty"
stated below, and nothing less. Though I'm
pretty sure he couldn't be revived enough to
carry out his sentence.

It's about damn time

You know, I never liked Bill Cosby much as an actor,
but when he says stuff like this, you gotta love him.

It's the truth and it's about damn time someone from
the black community said it. I know it is. I grew up
in that environment and saw I alot of my friends
become the type of person he was describing.

In their eyes I was a sell out. But hey, they were
wrong and I was right, as is Bill. Kudos to The Cos.
I hope he keeps doin' what he's doin' everywhere he
goes.
