Busy day today

Just a lot of stuff to do.  But that's why I have a blogroll!

And here's a blog I've been meaning to add to the blogroll.

Or you could just google up some left-handed lesbian eskimo midget porn.  I hear it's a favorite of Og's.

I'm outta here for the day.

What?

Is this a serious story?  Changing the name of Operation Iraqi Freedom?

Great.  I don't think I can describe just how disgusted I am with America right now, for electing that brainless fucking turd to the White House.

He isn't fit to lead a drunk to a bar, much less be in command of the greatest military in the world.  That fucking anti-military piece of shit is a joke.  A fraud.  He's a phony, a disgusting poser who cares more about his communist ideology than anything else in the world.

So Tiger Woods made a statement

And it was on EVERY FUCKING CHANNEL AT EVERY FUCKING TV AT EVERY FUCKING PLACE IN EVERY FUCKING AIRPORT!

Over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over.

It's almost as if the State-run media is trying to avoid reporting on the Democrat American Communist Party meltdown.  This is why I refuse to watch CNN.  I literally can't stand it.  They do one of two things - they either deep-throat their Liberal Lord and Messiah, or they don't report on ANYTHING because that might make the Teleprompter Jesus look bad.

Gah.

Drivers

Drove from Lincoln to Omaha this morning in the middle of a decent amount of snow.  Nothing horrendous, just a couple of inches.  The drivers there were actually slowing down a bit, driving sane and straight, not doing anything stupid.  They gave each other enough room, and nobody was riding my ass.

It was such a different experience from Wisconsin that I almost didn't know what to do.

Lincoln, Nebraska

OK, so....  there's the University of Nebraska.  I got that.  Cornhusker highway, Cornhusker this and that.  But what else is there?  I've been told of the Haymarket district, and I might be checking that out tonight.  Any good brew-pubs?  Cigar bars?  I would be perfectly happy holding a glass of scotch and puffing a cigar.

Anybody?

Hey!

How did my hometown get into the news like that?

Oh, and as for this "Clinton planning Tea Party counter-attack" kerfluffle?  Ain't gonna happen.  If anything, the Clintons are going to encourage the Tea Parties to attack the GOP, splitting the conservative vote and allowing the communists to get elected.  And even if they try to destroy the Tea Party movement, they can't.  They don't even understand it, how are they going to defeat it?

Now THAT is an improvement!

A Rhode Island town just fired every high school teacher.  Every last one of them.  In a town where the average yearly income is 22k, and the teachers are making 75k and up?  And the school has a 50% failure rate?

Oh boy.

A 50% FAILURE RATE????  Ladies and gentlemen, if your school has a 50% failure rate, as in 50% of the students are failing, you need to fire EVERYONE!  I'm not cracking on the superintendent.  I wholly support her actions.  What bugs the shit out of me is that it should have happened sooner!

And the super wanted six actions taken that the teachers union balked at.  Six actions that I thought were quite reasonable.  Of course, if you've read me for a while, you know that I think the publik skool sistim is a pathetic, useless pile of crap that needs to be completely blown apart, and to be quite honest I'm ambivalent about whether or not it gets rebuilt after that.  The publik skool sistim is part of the problem in this country.  But at least one town is trying to improve it.  So bully for Central Falls.

Just imaging what would happen

If Joe "The Drunk Irishman" Biden had an (R) after his name instead of a (D).  I mean, after getting his pathetic ass handed to him by Dick Cheney, after attempting to lecture Scott Brown, who just so happens to be an Army Lawyer, on the legalities of a military tribunal, after claiming credit for victory in Iraq after decades of opposing it......  Dan Quail reads a flashcard wrong and is hounded for the rest of his life.  Biden the gaff machine is so incompetent that he could (and probably has) fucked up a wet dream, and the press gives him a pass time after time after time after time after time after time after time after time after time after time after time after time......  Hmmmmm, I wonder why?  What on earth could make the state-run media cover up all of Joe the Drunken Irishman's fuckups?

Biden is another pathetic jackass to hang round the Democrat American Communist Party's neck in 2010.  Hey, America!  This is who is running the country!  This bumbling idiot can't tie his own shoes without help!  Do you want more of the same?

Secure that chain

Seems like the Teleprompter Jesus ain't quite the draw he used to be.  Secure that chain, buckos.  Tie the Democrat American Communist Party to the Teleprompter Jesus in ways that can't be dislodged.  He's their leader, make them own him.  He's the Liberal Lord and Messiah, and every last piece of shit Donk in office needs to be carrying Obama around on their back come election time.

Don't let them run away from what they've created.  They are responsible for their Socialist Savior.  Hold them to that responsibility.

Caring about your own damn health

While the Ragin' Mrs and I were out Saturday, serving a healthy lunch to lots of people, I saw something that perfectly illustrated why I refuse to buy into government health care.  Why I will fight against it as hard as I possibly can.

Now keep in mind, we had been asked to come up and provide a lunch service at this event.  We made up a good, healthy menu.  Total cost was $5 for everything, and that left us with a sliver-thin profit margin, but part of the reason we do this is just for the fun of it.  It's not all about the money.

Anyways, we're standing there, and we watch a married couple, who we know has diabetes, break open a massive brick of Rice Krispie Treats.  I'm talking 2 ft by 3 ft here.  They each grab a hunk and break it off. They toast with the pieces as if they were glasses of champagne.  They then proceed to eat half of the TWO FOOT BY THREE FOOT brick of sugar-coated puffed rice.  They take a break in order to chow down a bag of Fritos, because gosh, those are just so much healthier.  They then eat the rest of the TWO FOOT BY THREE FOOT brick of sugar, corn syrup and more sugar-coated puffed rice.

With their diabetes?

Look, I'm all about letting people do whatever the fuck they want to do.  Where I draw the line is when people do what they want to do, and someone else has to pay for the consequences.  Not just no, but fuck you with a chainsaw NO!

I'm eating salads, that diabetes guy is eating a week's worth of Rice Krispie Treats in one fucking sitting. I'm out running my ass off (literally!) to maintain my weight, that guy is sitting around watching TV.  I'm eating veggies, trimming the fat off my meat, making my own damn foods because of the wife's allergies, and that guy is polishing off a bag of Fritos.

And in the end, I'm going to have to pay for his health care?  Idon'tfuckingthinksoyoujackass.

In the end, the guy who blew all his money on his three-pack-a-day smoking habit and his fifth of cheap whiskey every day?  We're paying for his treatment?  His cirrhosis and his emphysema and his cancer?  He can't pay for it, he's spent all his money on his drugs.  They might be LEGAL drugs, but he's still spent all his money on them.  Meanwhile I'm the one who quit smoking, and I'm the one who's cut back on my drinking, and I'm the one trying to be healthy and fit and strong, but I'm going to pay for the multitude of diseases that jackass BROUGHT UPON HIMSELF?

Gee, whatever could go wrong?

Not too many people know this, but for years Idaho had a great dental program for poor families.  Even if you didn't have a dime to pay, your kids and you could still get dental care.  It was a great system.  It helped out untold numbers of people.

And then the meth users found out.  And they all started applying to get their free dental care.  Of course, their problem was not just that they didn't brush or floss, their problem was that they were a bunch of fucking meth-heads, and the illegal drug they were abusing every single day was causing their teeth to fall out.  But that didn't matter, they wanted their free fucking dental care!

They bankrupted the system in less than a decade.  Hell, less than five years.  There's no way in hell that ANY medical system can support the population when the population is damaging themselves and then demanding their magic fix.

Just another reason to avoid government health care.

Working Day

Clean-up from feeding 80 people.  Finding out how much it'll cost to fix the car.  Processing 30 pounds of pork into sausage.

Bratwurst, if you must know.

I'm-a gonna be busy here for a lil bit.  See you tomorrow!

UPDATE:  Cost to fix vehicle - a hell of a lot less than I was fearing.  Plus they'll come out to the house and do it.  Folks, if you're military, family of military, or prior service military, get thee hence and sign up with USAA for insurance.  I won't go into details, I'm just going to tell you to do it.
