Bigotry and Hatred?

Welcome to America. Trust me, any time I hear of people going “oh, {so and so} do so much for {whatever}” or “no one does more for {such and such} than…” and then these same people turn around and are homophobic, I just want to throw a penalty flag and say: “Look, you self-righteous bigot. […]

TMINE

I was reminded today of a license plate of an old friend of mine. I’ll admit I didn’t know what TMINE stood for, so I asked. “Too Much Is Never Enough.” Greedy, yeah. But a good philosophy, as long as we’re talking money or power, and not about bullshit. Some various thoughts: To Tink: Hope […]

Help me understand something.

The Virginia Legislature is preparing to battle it out for the budget. PilotOnline.com had this to say: The House approved a provision that would forbid the use of Medicaid funds to provide abortions in cases where physicians determined the woman could suffer substantial impairment of health by continuing a pregnancy. As required by federal law, […]

Discrimination? Can you answer this?

“On Tuesday, Officer Jones worked the 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. shift. At 10:55 p.m. he was called to the scene of an accident where he remained until 1:30 a.m. How long past his regular shift did Officer Jones work?” That’s a question from the National Police Officer Selection Test. Virginia Beach requires a score […]

Ready for more Bureaucracy?

Don’t think you’ll be getting that job from an online resource. Federal regulations kick in today that will make Internet job hunting more complicated. Here’s what candidates need to know and change — now. The Feds have other ideas.

The Decline of America

Something you haven’t heard much of is how the House is approving budget cuts (along the lines of $39 billion) which, among other things, would allow doctors to deny medical services to those who are unable to pay for them, or who previously had not paid for services. This was mentioned in the feedback of […]

Another great screw-up

As the government gets it wrong yet AGAIN. All they’ve managed to do is play a shell game (hide the pea) and transfer to cost from their coffers to the state’s coffers, overworking the pharmacists in the process. I certainly hope that when these assholes get to the age where they are on medications they […]

22 years late.

Who would have guessed that everything George Orwell wrote in his classic tome “1984” actually referenced America, 22 years too soon? What do I mean? According to ZDNet.com: It is now illegal, after President Bush signed H.R. 3402, the “Violence Against Women and Department of Justice Reauthorization Act of 2005,” to harrass someone by posting […]

Pardon me, jackass

I just read on the MSN website that the Alito Hearings are set to begin and that “Bush Demands A Fair Vote”. Pardon me, oh fearless leader who has mislead the country in ways unnumerable (not just Iraq, but in wiretapping, and filling vacancies with your friends instead of those who are QUALIFIED for the position), […]

Sorry, you can’t live here.

There’s an interesting article about living situations. Has nothing to do same sex relationships, co-habitation, or anything sinful. MANASSAS, Va. (AP) — City officials said they’ve temporarily suspended enforcement of a ban on extended family members living in the same home following criticism that the new ordinance primarily targeted Latino families. The City Council is considering the possibility […]

It’s no worse

I read on CNN today where Clinton’s Impeachment has made the history books. What he did by lying about his sexual escapades with Monica are no worse than the lies told by George W. Bush regarding Iraq, regarding unauthorized wiretapping, or any of the other lies America has been told (read as Haliburton, giving his […]

Insanity

I had to accompany Tink to the post office today and what to my wandering eyes did appear, but a poster regarding Passports. Did you realize that the government isn’t making enough money? Yes, as of 8 March 2005, there is an additional $12 fee levied on your passport application for “Security Matters”. In fine […]

Gov’t Games

It simply wasn’t her time.

Miers followed her conscious and has withdrawn. I may not have agreed with her nomination, nor her stances on issues, but I respect the woman for realizing it was a lost cause and for not wasting the nation’s time. If more elected officials would follow that lead, imagine how the US could propser.

WaPo exposes Big Brother Logic

affecting Color Laser Printers. (Click for article) It sounds like a conspiracy theory, but it isn’t. The pages coming out of your color printer may contain hidden information that could be used to track you down if you ever cross the U.S. government. Last year, an article in PC World magazine pointed out that printouts […]

Let’s Be Paranoid!

At last night’s Drew Carey comedy show, we had the usual vendors walking around selling popcorn and bottled drinks. Did you know that, according to the venue, due to Homeland Security regulations, venues are now required to take the lids off bottled beverages (Coke, Water, etc) and keep them because the “lidded bottle may be […]

Get him OFF the bench

It’s time for the General Assemby to get off their respective asses and do something about this “quirk” in our legal system: A Fairfax County judge doesn’t believe in Virginia’s drunken driving laws has resumed his practice of dismissing all DWI cases brought into his court, leaving prosecutors unable to appeal his rulings. In July, […]

Face the truth

New Orleans will have to be abandoned for at least nine months, and many of its people will remain homeless for up to two years, the US government believes. The bleak assessment will deepen the biggest crisis faced by President George Bush, who last week called the devastation of Hurricane Katrina a ” temporary disruption”. […]

America is really in for it.

Chief Justice William Rehnquist died Saturday at age 80. That means Dubya will be appointing 2 of the 9 Justices that serve for life. So that even long after he leaves office, his rhetoric and crap will continue to afflict American life. May God provide solace to Justice Rehnquist’s family. And may God have mercy […]

Well put.

Neil and I were talking online this morning about how unprepared the government (at all levels) were (yes, were, as there are many levels), when Tink sent me the following editorial. (Told you my outside pipeline was great at giving me info…) Katrina exposes nation’s warts The Virginian-Pilot © September 3, 2005 When Hurricane Katrina […]

I have to laugh

…simply because some people put the blinders on when they don’t want to admit that possibly they could be wrong. Over at another blog I read, there’s this one commenter, who I respect (she’s quite intelligent) but… she’s also a shill for President Shrub. Nothing can ever be blamed on him. It’s due to his […]

Read on the web

Posted to one of the musical groups I subscribe to: “I really don’t know why the refugees of Hurricane Katrina are the least bit surprised by the treatment they are receiving from this administration. I mean let’s think about it – the vast majority of the people hardest hit by this disaster are the exact […]

America: Let’s Screw The Victims

As if natural disaster isn’t enough to break someone’s will, leave it to the changes submitted to the Bankruptcy code to take effect to finish destroying lives. New bankruptcy law a problem for Katrina victims By Jonathan Stempel Reuters Thursday, September 1, 2005; 6:41 PM NEW YORK (Reuters) – Hurricane Katrina is expected to cause […]

Pat, In A Sling

Looks like the Right Reverend may end up having written an elephant check his canary ass can’t cash. Of course, you have President Moonbat, the Rev. Jesse Jackson promoting his own agenda, however…CBS reports: President Hugo Chavez said Sunday that his government may ask the United States to extradite U.S. religious broadcaster Pat Robertson to […]
