I wasn't a three percenter last year

But I think I am today, because I can't find a single thing wrong with this speech.

Found at TSM.

The Arizona Illegal Immigration Bill

Out-Fucking-Standing.

Do I think it'll stand as it's currently written?  Probably not.  It's a direct slap in the face of the Federal Government, but one that the FedGov has been needing for years now.  I'm certain that the FedGov is going to challenge the law in court, and if they push hard enough they'll probably win that suit.  BUT, in the course of doing so, they are going to expose themselves to the fact that the Federal Government has been criminally negligent in it's duties to protect it's citizens.  And that'll open up a whole host of problems for the FedGov, most of which they would most likely not want exposed.

Arizona for the win!

Next up for AZ?  Replacing Juan McCain, the faux "maverick", unless "maverick" really stands for "person who will stab his voting base in the back so he can get good cred with liberal douchebags in the media."  Because if that's what "maverick" means, then baby he's good!

A must read

Go forth, and consume knowledge.  And remember folks, half the reason people say "I don't have time to cook" is because A) they've been conditioned to think that they don't have that time by the marketers, and B) they're too busy making the money they need to buy the pre-made, fat-loaded, preservative-filled, artery-clogging, heart attack-inducing food/not-food they're eating.

If people actually took a little bit of time, they would be eating better than they ever imagined, and spending less than they think.

Life

Kinda like this right now:



Only without the applause.

But I can't complain too much.  There's boys in Afghanistan who would willingly trade me places.  Which I find rather humorous, since I fought so hard to get to Afghanistan, and there's people in my office trying as hard as they can to get over there.

Is it a case of "The grass is always greener on the other side", or does office and admin work suck just as much as I thought?  Because I'm of the opinion that office work is only slightly less torturous as the fifth circle of hell.

Back

From business.  We're entering my crazy period now, so I might have a few more unexplained absences.

That's life.

extended uninsurance benefits realized

I went into my dentists office today to check on a few things and got to talking with the Office Manager. It turns out that my little dentist office with only 5 employees has seen 10 unemployment rate hikes in the last quarter. These hikes have taken their unemployment payments from a mere $70 to $700 dollars. They have not laid anyone off. They keep their rates low. They are a good office that takes military and children's medicaid. They would love to take more, but then they would lose money on salaries.

This business has done nothing to add to the unemployment crisis and they are being penalized for it.

Imagine the cost for business with more than 5 employees....

Where the hell is Dave?

Dave is travelling.  And Dave is busy as a one-armed paperhanger.  And Dave didn't even have time or computer access to post this weekend.  So you can expect a little bit more from Dave now, but not much.

Just so ya know.
