With rebels at the gates and the despotic regimes falling left and right, where in the world has Muammar el-Qaddafi gone? It seems like just a few short years ago we were blowing his bass boat navy out of the water. Jeez...does that date me? I think he might pop up someplace like Yemen. Maybe Dear Leader can have him over for supper a couple of nights while he is so put out. Where in the world will Muammar pop up?
If you was gonna haul a couch about 138.5 miles down the highway next Saturday, tied to the roof of the car, what do you think would be the best way to tie it down and what kind of rope or tie downs would you use? There is a small chance of isolated thunderstorms. If it rained on a red couch, would the dye run and streak your car?
These are very important questions to consider this time of year as the fall semester up to that college is fixin to start back up so soon. What I don't get is why them kids (at least the one I'm currently affiliated with) wants to move back to that hippie town so soon before that college even takes up. What I heared was that they had college kid parties and what not. Then I remembered back when I was up to college they had a thing they called that country club week. And we didn't even play golf but we went anyway and drank a lot of beer and pestered the pretty girls until their boyfriends threatened to beat us up. Are you ready to haul your couch on top of the car back to college yet?
The end of the world is nigh. What is the song you want to go out with? I've so many to chose from. But I will go with Steam. From my youth....especially when we were beating the other team, we let off with the chant.....
I know of a person that claims they can eat 95 Reese's peanut butter cups in one sitting.
I saw this on MSNBC the other night. A whole show about 2012 stuff. There are more conspiracy theories about this than there are cabs in New York City. Now I question the motive of this joker that claims he is going to jump into the portal a precisely 11:11 a.m. on December 21, 2012. Note, one can donate money so he can "take care" of things first. I guess my biggest question for him (a lawyer by the way, thus a horrible person) is that 11:11 time regular mountain standard time or daylight savings? Some western states don't do savings time. And is that original time frame based on mean Greenwich time from the 0 degree longitude mark? How can reasonably educated adult grown up people actually believe in this bogus nonsense? As far as the world ending on that day,...well, I think I have a better chance of being killed and eaten by the easter bunny next week.
If I may, I shall rant for a short bit. Why does the federal government not have the sense to budget up to keep the essential services of the government? Or better put, why do those whiny ass Republican legislators gum up the works just to make some ignorant mundane point? It reminds me a bit of the social feuding my granddaughter does with her friends. She is a fifth grader. Is Congress smarter than a fifth grader? And this is not about liberal/conservative cry baby differences. This is about getting to work and doing something positive and right. If you pull partisan politics at this point, you should shut the hell up and go cut firewood for a living.
The federal budget proposes cutting the legs out from under the Workforce Investment Act and Wagner Peyser. In time of layoffs and depressed economy is eliminating all the displaced worker retraining funds a good idea? That's like shooting all the chickens because a fox was in the yard last night. I just wish that all 500 and some whatever it is members of Congress, for one or two days, could go in and be Mr. Deeds. Just go do the right thing based on common human decency and tell all the people they are beholding to to kiss their ass. That is the only way to move forward. WIA is only one example. Sam has his issues too that are going to hurt all of us. So where are you with this? You know, if you keep pushing a mass of people, pretty soon they will push back.
Just another example of its not what you know or who you know, but can you sing me a song? I remember back in the day ole Vern MIler and "other" undercover narcotics operatives hiding in car trunks and busting college kids. Now all you have to do is sing the judge a song. My how times be a changin.
I recently read my local legislators newsletter and he makes references to some of the current bills and money saving strategies. One of them is this idea of elminating corporate income tax. I'm not an economist. So can somebody explain to me how cutting revenue will help the bottom line of the state?
I would be of the opinion that when corporate income tax is done away with it will only result in the revenue enhancement of the corporate owners or shareholders. Where is the leverage that says this windfall of asset will be reinvested to create new jobs? What says that this money won't be converted to a new Cobalt boat or a trip to the Caymans? Corporate welfare is truly the march of folly.
OK, I have two questions today.
What is the proper spelling of that guy in Libya that is still only a colonel in his own army? I see it "Quaddaffi" or "Gaddaffi"..one d, or one f, or two of each. Is there a proper way to spell this Muammer's last name? Does his Navy still only consist of a half a dozen Ranger bass boats?
Second question. Can I burn jet fuel in my pickup truck or is the octane just way too high? I say in the paper today that the average prices of jet fuel is about 25 cents cheaper than the unleaded I'm buying now? Will jet fuel clean your injectors?
So I asked three questions. Don't get in neighborhood association uproar over it.
All of this recent talk of lieberrys and newer lieberrys got me to thinking of Mad Dog and Thunderbird. What ever happened to Waka1? Where is the boy? I miss his insightful quotable comments.
