Random thoughts #12

Just sayin.

"Kenny face it. Girls don't want to eat Poptarts for dinner every night." Eric Cartman.

Why do liberals hate Christianity? Why do they respect Islam so much? Think about it. Islam says that you can't have an image of their pedophile prophet Muhammad. Not one newspaper in this country would even consider putting an image in their paper. Not one! Yet they ridicule all Christian faiths. If you believe in God, you are a Christian extremist (unless you are an abortion supporting Democrat). They respect all aspects of Islamic faith and defend a crucifix in urine as art. The funny thing is this: if America came under Islamic rule they would all be killed for their belief that there is no God. Say what you want about Moslems, they at least have a faith and consistent belief system which is something that liberals don't have.

Dead Kennedy was buried today and had his service at a Catholic church. Ironic isn't it? A man who was the biggest supporter in the Senate of the killing of the unborn still thought he was a "good Catholic". As a baptized Catholic I'm offended by this. My last lengthy paragraph about the media's assault on Christianity is my next point. The MSM is making a big deal about him being a Catholic and which church was having his service. I haven't been to Mass in five years and I'm a better Catholic than he ever THOUGHT of being. Burn in hell you worthless puke!

Are all women crazy? Or just the one's I find attractive?

I'm watching the Little League World Series (LLWS). I'm 5'8". I wasn't 5' until I was 16. How in the hell can you be 5' 11" and 12 years old? When I was 12, the big kids were 4' 10".

Seinfeld was a great sitcom. Kramer was funny but Costanza was the best character on the show. Acting is overrated as a profession, it's just pretending to be something you aren't and I can do that, but Jason Alexander has more talent in his little finger than Michael Richards could ever dream of having. " You know Jerry, it isn't a lie if you think it's the truth." I think that Barack Obama lives by that credo.

The Budweiser Clydesdales are cool.

California is going to represent the U.S. in the LLWS. I guess I'll root for them but I fucking hate California. California, New York and Massachusetts could all evaporate and we would be just fine. Trust me on this. California can leave behind the Reagan library.

Speaking of Reagan. There is an audio book entitled "Reagan in his own voice". It's a compilation of his radio shows from the 1970's. The man was a visionary. Check it out from your local library. You won't be disappointed.

I don't know how Chef Troll found my bullshit blog but it's made me a better blogger. I'm not on his level but I'm trying. Kym, Pamokc, and Moi set a high standard as well. Read them. Follow them. Comment on their posts. Expand your horizons. Mute Mondays are the bomb! It's hard for me to be mute. Really. Mute and me don't collide in the same sentence. Mute Mondays were the inspiration for Tuesday Tunes. I'm not consistent on them. I need guest deejays. Tell your friends.


My dad was a bartender and told my brother Bill and me that if we couldn't be happy drinking to not do it at all. We are both happy. Bill is a funny sumbitch. Add a little booze to that and hang onto your belly. It's what we do on the Hi-Line.

Brent Musburger is announcing the LLWS. Brent is a Montanan. From Billings. I hate him. Over dramatic and a dipshit to boot. I wish I had a baritone voice. I would be doing Monday Night Football. And the World Series. I'd bring a much needed panache to the booth along with the fact that I wouldn't be afraid to say that everyone in the NFL is on steroids. I'm sure that would get be some great rapport with guys in the NFL. They would really dig it.


14 is the number for songs on the playlist. Kym only gave me 11 but I let it slide. The first person to tell me why 14 is the number gets to pick the next playlist. Prodigy, you as usual, can't play.


I wish business would pick up. My boss is the hardest working man I have ever known. He deserves a break and more good times. I have a nice house, four-wheelers, a camper and lots of money in the bank and it's all because he gave me a shot and trusted me. Wish him well. We have a lot of equipment sitting and looking pretty but that doesn't pay the bills.


Take care,


Chip

TGIF Baby

OK, I'm not quite youtube literate yet, but will try to figure out how to put it up here like the cool bloggers (Moi and Troll) until then click here for a great clip from the 70's cult classic Thank God Its Friday.

It makes me long for the sunny slopes of The Prairie.

DANCING!!! EVERYTHING ELSE IS BULLSHIT!!!

Letter to the editor #3

This letter appeared in the local rag this past Monday. The mental midget who wrote it is a frequent contributor in this category. It's funny how liberals have so much time to write so many letters. My job gets in my way. My comments are in black.


Rich Sherlock’s letter proclaiming that health care reform is not a moral decision amply demonstrates the “let them eat cake” moral bankruptcy of right-wing ideologues in the health care debate. No not really Carl. Health care is a commodity, thus cannot be "morally" provided.

Mr. Sherlock proclaims that only those who can afford health care deserve it. He made no such claim. This is ironic. The right has charged that under a system of “socialized medicine,” the elderly will be left to die, a charge that has been completely discredited. Uh, it hasn't been discredited. If you've read the bill the provisions concerning the elderly are quite vague in this regard. But, Obama's Chief-of-Staff's brother who is a Dr. and advising the President, strongly advocates such a system so make your own decisions. However, if Mr. Sherlock’s attitudes are any indication, the right has no problem with people suffering extreme economic hardship or being denied access to medical care simply because they cannot pay for it. Again, nowhere it Sherlock's letter does he advocate denying health care. It would seem that they have no problem either with medical-related bankruptcy or even that someone may die because they cannot pay for the care they desperately need to receive. I grow weary of this paragraph.

Mr. Sherlock claims that having others pay for your health care is wrong. It is if you could have paid for it yourself but made other choices instead. Taken to its logical conclusion, this argument proposes the abolition of even private health insurance, since everyone who pays premiums is “paying for the health care of others.” Could you show some evidence for this dillweed? What's that? You can't unless you count Medicare and Medicaid then yes. You could also make the argument that if you have insurance and never use it your premiums are helping pay for claims of others but that's why its called INSURANCE. However, the private health insurance industry has delivered a bad product. My provider is great and I can recommend you if you would like. There might be a better product in another state but because of guys like Sr. Dead Kennedy and our own stuttering moron of a Senator Max we can't buy products from another state. Contrary to Mr. Sherlock’s opinion, they do not profit by delivering good service, they profit by denying or dropping coverage to the people who need it the most. Again, lets fix that part of the industry. However, I would like to point out that if you get a DUI, your car insurance will go up or you will get dropped. This is because you are a high risk. There are providers though who will continue to insure you. You just pay more in premiums. If you are continually getting sick, your chances of getting dropped increase. However, just like in the auto business, there would probably be an insurance provider who would take on high risk patients if only your beloved government would let them. There is one word for taking people’s money, turning a profit, and failing to deliver — fraud. = Barack Obama

Mr. Sherlock argues governments cannot be moral, only individuals. Does this mean governments are absolved of any moral restraint and are free to murder or steal? Ah, the old liberal tactic of extreme absurdity. Governments don't have feelings thus they cannot be moral. Also, morality is individual. I believe abortion is immoral but I'm sure you don't. Mr. Sherlock's strong objection is to having the government decide what is moral for all of us. Honestly, this guy has to be the product of our public education system. Either that or he went to some Ivy league school where they hand out A's like Halloween candy. This is absurd. Governments, like individuals, have moral obligations, including providing for the general welfare of the people. The general welfare does not include health care, besides that its "promote the general welfare" not provide. Maybe if you read the Constitution once in your fucking life, you'd know what it says.

I call upon our nation and leaders to resist these immoral attitudes and carry out health care reform that truly serves justice. That's what we all want Carl. That's what we all want.

It's funny. I read Carl's letter than I went back and found the letter to which he was referring and reread it. Of the two of us, Carl and me, it would appear that the only one who read the letter is me. Mr. Sherlock said it best in the last line of his letter "There is nothing moral about government forcing people to pay for other people's health care."

Top Chef week 2

Had a work call come in right as the show was starting so I only know that Mike B wins the Quickfire and the 15 large. As noted by Chef Troll last week the amount of people with tattoos this season is very high. We aren't talking about "I love Suzy" on a bicep or a rose pedal above the pantie line but full on arm sleeves, wrap around neck gear and cleavage art from armpit to armpit. And that's just the chicks.

I have a tattoo. A small one on my left ankle of the Cincinnati Reds. Ralph has the Boston Red Sox in the same place as does Jimmy with the St. Louis Cardinals. You can see mine if you're in the shower with me (are you reading this Padma?) or when I'm golfing and that's about it.

Tonight's challenge is a men vs. women affair. Men cooking for a bachelorette party and women for a bachelor party. Chefs are cooking and my feeling is that the women will lose this battle. It's pretty gay actually. Speaking of gay, Ashley is making a political statement about how hard this competition is for her because she is gay and can't get married. Just shut up and cook. I want my ex-wife to weigh 400 pounds and I'm not going to get my way. Life's hard. Deal with it. I'm starting to think that Ashley is gone already. She's losing her focus.

Holy shit! Preeti just said that she is gay. I didn't totally see this coming and I'm not overly surprised but kind of bummed. She's a nice enough looking gal who just needs to grow her hair out. My gaydar should have went off last week when she said her vice was a "Makers Mark Manhattan". Not a lot of "ladies" drink bourbon.

Ashley is still bitching about not being able to get married. The sooner her whiny ass is gone the better. Padma just showed up. The gals from the bachelorette party are getting into bikinis. Please, oh please, let Padma get into a bikini. C'mon God, You know I don't ask for much.

After watching all the food sampling, I'm thinking that the men are on the spot and that one of them will be gone. Afterall, a woman went home last week and Bravo has to keep it even.

A U2 commercial is on about Blackberries. God, I hate Bono. I just want to bitch slap those fucking glasses off his face, grab him by the throat and just start bashing his face. Then I'd, oh, commercial is over.

Padma is calling four men to the judges tables so they are the winners. Bryan is the overall winner. So I'm wrong about a man going home. That doesn't happen very often. His brother won the Quickfire. I can't wait for one of them to go home. Sick of the the whole brother thing already and it's only week two. By the way, if you think its a mere coincidence that they are on the same season, you are retarded.

Pierced lips Jessie is crying as gets her dish raked over the coals. Eve is next. She sounds like JarJar Binks when she talks. "Mesa think my disha gooda". I know a few people from Michigan and they talk pretty normal but its almost as if English is a second language for her. Preeti is holding her own against the judges and Ashley is not looking so good. Making two dishes probably wasn't her bet move. It's going to be a tough call but I'm changing my prediction to Jessie.

Eve is hasta la vista baby! Wow, twice in one episode that I erred in my judgement. I'd better check my bible to make sure that isn't on of the signs of the Apocalypse. Eve takes it like a champ though. No whining, a smile on her face and wishes the best to everyone. If I were Jessie or Ashley, I would spend as much time on The Strip as I could because neither of them is long for this competition. Padma doesn't get naked or even in a bikini. Sigh. Maybe next week.

Every day is casual Friday in the Obama Whitehouse


On Monday, the current President announced he would keep the current head of the Fed for another four years. He made the announcement and held a press conference. Both Barry and Ben look like they just finished their fourth martini's, threw on a jacket and decided to speak to the press.
From Yahoo! " "Both he and Bernanke sported the open-collar look." Or as it's more commonly known, I'm a lazy ass. Honestly, how far are we from seeing the President at a press conference in zubaz and a t-shirt with a pack of PallMall menthols rolled up in his sleeve? I'm guessing Christmas.

Wednesday Rock Oout

Well its funny that if you call someone out, they can respond with a first class effort. So Kym responded with this this. It's different but the playlist needed some heat and this one definately has it.

Some strong language in a couple of songs, but nothing you haven't read on this site. It will be a great way to start hump day.

Tuesday Tunes 8/25/09

I haven't done a playlist for a while now. I did have a contest winner a few weeks ago who hasn't sent me anything yet. I'm not going to say any names but you can check out her great blog here.

I was going to make a list of great songs from 1988. That's the year I left the Center of the Universe to begin my academic career at the greatest institution of higher learning west of the Mississippi. I began to peruse top 100 lists from that year and quickly realized one thing, 1988 sucked for music. I try for a minimum of 12 songs but my target number is 14. I had looked at the top 50 and had written three down. THREE!! And one of those was a U2 song so you know how desperate I was.

I quickly let the creative juices start flowing, as much of them as you need when you have the world wide interweb at your disposal and went "hmmm, how about songs with the word 'night' in the title" and whalah today's playlist was born. Actually a pretty good compilation if I don't mind saying so myself. You'll notice that there are no Eagles songs on this list yet again. Was that intentional I wonder? Bob Seger and the BeeGees are both on here twice, yet the Eagles don't make the list. It would appear that there is some sort of conspiracy to keep them from being heard. Some mischief may be afoot to deny the Eagles some playing time.

Its pretty simple really. If you want to hear the Eagles, tune into any FM station that plays music from 1988 and earlier and you will enough to make you puke. As far as my playlists are concerned, well the only way they will get air time is if a certain contest winner puts them on there and at the rate that's going, that won't happen.

Anyway, enjoy this and I'll try not to wait so long til the next one.

YOU'RE THE PRESIDENT. DRESS LIKE IT!!!


President Teleprompter was in Bozeman last week trying to use his snake oil salesman charm to convince people with real common sense to shorten their life span by 10 years and buy into his health care plan. As I sat at Buffalo Bump pizza and tried to listen to him studder and stammer his way answering questions that weren't rehearsed, one thing kept going through my head. PUT ON A FUCKING TIE!! For chrissakes you are the leader of the free world! This guy takes every opportunity he can to not wear a tie and roll up his sleeves. You aren't fooling anyone dipshit. You've never had a job in the private sector, you've never had a blister, you've never sweated (sweat? sweated? whatever) raking or mowing your yard so quit trying to pass yourself off as "just one of the guys".

You are the President of the United States of America. The greatest nation on earth. Hey, if you're throwing out the first pitch of the All-Star game, you can wear a polo and your wife's pants, but outside of that dress for the job. Whether or not you liked GW, he always represented himself and presented himself like the president. Hell, the guy trying to sell me a new TV at Van's looked more presidential than Barry.

Maybe if he had spent his formative years living in America and learning our culture, he would have more respect and appreciation for this office.

Hell Don Ready looks more presidential. And yes, you are damn right I'm going to this movie. Jeremy Piven is a funny MF.

Would someone just find me a rich sugar mama so I can move off continent for the next 3 1/2 years. Looks are of no importance because if she has enough money to let me live Fiji or Ireland or Madagascar, she will be hot. Trust me.

Bret Favre, World Champion Ass-clown

(Photo courtesy of With Leather)


Well, Brett Favre has shown again why he is the biggest douchebag in pro sports. Honestly, what did anyone ever see in this clown? If he doesn't play in Green Bay, where the team is owned by the fans, where they still play for the city, where the franchise will never leave, he would be more hated than almost any player in the league.

This is a guy who plays football for one person and one person only and that is Bret Farve. My dad's dead? Fuck it , I'm playing football. My wife has breast cancer? If you think I'm giving up on my streak your fucking crazy. Watch my kids grow up and enjoy my millions? Peyton is too close to my records.

Sticking around for a long time and piling up big numbers doesn't necessarily make you one of the greatest of all time. He has one Superbowl. One. So does Trent Dilfer. So does Brad Johnson. So does Earl Morrell. So does Mark Rypien. You get the picture. Favre had a great five year run but has had only one season in the last 7 where he might have been able to win again. One.

I'm sick of hearing ESPN announcers felate him and how "nobody has more fun". Really? Nobody? I'm sick of hearing them say that "he feels he can still compete" despite what the numbers show. I'm sorry, but a QB rating of 85 can be done by better than half the league and there are at least 10 guys starting in the NFL right now that could make the Vikings Superbowl contenders as much as Bret Favre so let's not make him the saviour of this franchise yet. Especially when they haven't won a game yet. Adrian Peterson will want his 25-30 carries and if Bret doesn't want to hand it off that much than Peterson may become a little unhappy. Nothing hurts your Superbowl chances more than a disgruntled running back.

The Vikings were going to be good without Favre. Just adding him does not guarantee greatness. Lets not forget how he faded down the stretch last year in New York. Throw out the 6 TD games against the Cardinals (yes Bill, the Cardinals) and he was barely mediocre. So live it up Farve fans. By the end of the year, he will still be king of the douchebags. A title he richly deserves.

Random thoughts #11

Things that cross my mind while relishing in my fifth straight "Match for the Cap" victory.

Life is so short we don't get to realize it. Its a flash in time. My dad was 86 when he died almost 15 years ago. 54 when I was born. When I turned 18 and he was 72, he told me that the rest of my life would pass faster than the first 18 years. He lied. Its been faster than that but its still a lot of fun.

Women are complicated. Once you realize that, the battle is easier. I will say this, trying to figure them out is a task. I'd rather contemplate the physics associated with time travel. Just sayin.

Baseball is the best sport on the planet. Though I don't follow it like I used to, its still awesome. There is more going on in two innings of a baseball game than in four quarters of football.

Speaking of my dad, I wished I would have listened to him more. I am glad that I decided to start paying attention more the last few years of his life. There is no way I'd be where I am if I hadn't.

If this health care passes in any form resembling any of the five bills as they are presented, we are sunk as a nation. We are the most powerful and BEST nation on earth but will become the biggest third world country on the planet.

I lied to my father once and got caught. It still hurts me when I think about it. I never lied to him again. Have I lied since then, yes, but in almost every instance sex was involved.

If I was a dog, I would want my adopted sister Monika to be my master. My dog has it good, but Stoli lives a dog's dream.

I never knew I would like having a flower garden this much.

Treat people the way you want to be treated. It's easy when you do it. If they are mean in return, lay in bed at night and plot how to ruin their life. I'm not saying to go out and ruin it, just plot it out. Its good therapy. I guess you could let it go as well. It's a coin flip really.

How did Rachel Nichols get a job on ESPN? Wait, I know how and it wasn't her looks (wink, wink). I've dumped better looking women than her. I'm not bragging as most of those were probably mistakes. Honestly though, she tells me absolutely nothing about any sport that I don't know. She's a female Mike Golic. Get in the kitchen and make me a pie!

Bombay gin and ginger ale may sound like a good combination, but trust me when I say it really isn't. Thunderbird wine and Ranier is a better combination and yes, I've had both.

When I was a kid, my dad would let me shave with him. Lather me up and give me an old single edge razor without the blade. It was a lot of fun. He told me how fast life would go by, he didn't tell me how much shaving every day sucks. Thanks for the full beard Pop. I still cuss you under my breath at least once a week for holding back what a pain in the ass shaving is. Of course, I'm sure he was just grateful to have a sharp razor. That's how he was.

Writing is good therapy.

I wish everyone success, except our current congress and their attempt to take my doctor away.

What's the difference between "virgin" olive oil and "extra virgin" olive oil. I think I know that regular olive oil is no longer a virgin, but how do you get to be an extra one?

Less than 20 days til the Cats kickoff.

I'm hoping for Notre Dame to win 9 games and go to a BCS bowl and get crushed. No. That's a lie. I hope they go 5-6. They won't though. There schedule is softer than a newborn's stool and there coach smells worse.

Safe journeys,

Chip

Say it ain't so Brady

From PFT:


Anderson, Quinn in dead heat as cheating claims surface

Posted by Mike Florio on August 11, 2009 9:42 PM ET

The Browns' initial depth chart shows two starters at the most important position on the field.

For now, Derek Anderson and Brady Quinn each have a piece of the job."I was just trying to avoid all the questions," coach Eric Mangini said in remarks distributed by the team. "If I put a name there, then he's the starter. Nothing has really changed. I can promise you, we had to submit a depth chart, that's what it is."

Meanwhile, a claim has emerged that Quinn tried to torpedo Anderson's performance in Sunday's scrimmage after the radio connection the sideline to the quarterbacks went on the fritz. Per John Clayton of ESPN.com, Brown team quarterback Derek Anderson used hand signals -- and White team quarterback Brady Quinn shared the hand signals with his team's defense.Given Mangini's ties to the Patriots, Quinn's underhanded tactics just might have won him the job.

This really shouldn't shock anyone, given where Brady played and who his coach was.

Hmmm. I did some research and found a picture of Brady practicing his hand signals.


The little dude in the yellow is afraid, very afraid. There, there little one. Someone has to be "lucky Pierre".

Interesting blogs

Here are some blogs that I read that some of you here might find interesting.

The Conservative Underground is a blog I just started following and its a decent read. There is a great post here outlining the horrible aspects of this legislation.

Over at the Conservative Grapevine John Hawkins does a great job of finding interesting stuff to read so I don't have to. He also runs the Right Wing News.

If you like some sports with a nice conservative political bend then visit Steve Czaban's site. If you can listen to your computer at work then try to stream him in. Here's a link that can assist you there.

If you want to keep up on my beloved alma mater then check out the happenings at Bobcat Nation. It's a lot of fun. One of the moderators is a total dipshit who knows less about sports then the gophers running around outside. Check out who the three mods are, then read some posts they make and see if you can tell me who it is.

I might have mentioned these before and if I sound redundant, so be it. I mean, if I'm saying the same thing over, that's life. If I'm repeating myself, deal with. If you've seen it here before, well, you get the picture.

Things you say when you don't have a teleprompter

From the mouth of Barry Obama.

I can make a firm pledge, under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes. So, as the question was posed to me last night, is a new tax a tax increase?

I don't take a dime of their [lobbyist] money, and when I am president, they won't find a job in my White House. Funny how he currently has five lobbyists on his staff.


I will cut taxes - cut taxes - for 95 percent of all working families, because, in an economy like this, the last thing we should do is raise taxes on the middle class.
When? When? Not only will this not happen, he has not mentioned one time since he's taken office that there will be any kind of tax cut.

It's not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations. When Barry gets bitter he shows his hatred and racism and tells people to squeal on their neighbors.


One of the great strengths of the United States is... we have a very large Christian population - we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values. Spoken like a true Muslim.


Over the last 15 months, we've traveled to every corner of the United States. I've now been in 57 states? I think one left to go. If GW, or any republican for that matter, had made a statement like this, it would still be on the front of the NY Times.


The United States has been enriched by Muslim Americans. Many other Americans have Muslims in their families or have lived in a Muslim-majority country - I know, because I am one of them. Name one. Just one Muslim who has enriched America. Actors don't count and neither do musicians. I want a famous scientist, an author, a Nobel prize winner. Just one.

We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK. That's not leadership. That's not going to happen. No, that is leadership. It shows how successful you can be if you follow our model.

We need to steer clear of this poverty of ambition, where people want to drive fancy cars and wear nice clothes and live in nice apartments but don't want to work hard to accomplish these things. Everyone should try to realize their full potential. Isn't the enitre liberal mantra based on getting something for nothing? Let's be honest, hard working and liberal don't usually go hand in hand. Honestly, how did anyone vote for this fucking clown?

You will not see any of your taxes increase one single dime. I will take any and all bets on this. BTW, new taxes are a tax increase.

When we think of the major threats to our national security, the first to come to mind are nuclear proliferation, rogue states and global terrorism. But another kind of threat lurks beyond our shores, one from nature, not humans - an avian flu pandemic. Are you shitting me? Bird flu is being compared to a terrorist getting his hands on a nuclear device?

In America, there's a failure to appreciate Europe's leading role in the world. If Europe is so fucking great, why don't all the liberals move there? They would be happy and so would we.

We’ve got a tragic history when it comes to race in this country. We’ve got a lot of pent-up anger and bitterness and misunderstanding. … This country wants to move beyond these kinds of things. This should be followed by the quote where he said the police acted "stupidly".

What Washington needs is adult supervision. At last. Something we can agree on. Now, if only there were an adult in the Whitehouse.

I'm so proud

How lucky we are to have the President of these United States come to Bozeman to spread is socialist propaganda. Hooray! Hooray! I wonder if a) I will even be allowed to be a spectator and b) if I can ask a couple of pointed questions? The magic 8-ball says "chances are no". Drat

Random Thoughts #10

Pure politics.


"We know we spend a huge amount of money that last year of life. More and more people are gonna say, I don't want people poking tubes, and, you know, uh, doing all sorts of...stuff. The most important thing we can do on end-of-life care right now: to encourage people to look at hospices as a...legitimate option." Barack Obama. Hmm. Sounds like someone's been watching the cult classic "Soilent Green".

There is no inherent right to health care. None. There are plenty of options out there even if you make $30,000.00 a year and don't have it provided for by your employer. Yet we are in the midst of a great debate on this issue. Call me Ismael, but I remember when GW wanted to expand Medicare coverage. Democrats screamed bloody murder ( mainly because this would eliminate it as a campaign issue) complained that it would cost to much and voted for it anyway. They were right about one thing. It has cost far more than anticipated. Does anyone think for five minutes that "health care reform" will be any different?

If you make $30,000.00 a year or more, you will see your taxes increase to pay for this. While I'm not in the least bit excited about this, it does make me smile that a lot of people voted for Barry thinking that they would get all of this stuff for free. They deserve what they get. I know that isn't very Christian but like my Mom's husband says "experience is a good teacher".

Bill Clinton went to North Korea and had some hostages released. Good for him. I heard somebody on America Left (XM) say the "he intimidated Kim Jong Il". Really? If he had that kind of power, why did he let that little fucking midget have nuclear capabilities? I'm happy that he had the hostages released but to think this is anything more than a smoke and mirror show is pure folly.

Barack Obama has broken almost every campaign promise he made to get middle of the road voters to vote for him. There is no 5 day posting on the net of any legislation, like he promised. There has been no open debate on health care reform, there will be a middle class tax increase, there has been no economic reform (tripled the deficit in six months) there is no bipartisanship (my way or the highway, what a puke) he has heightened race relations ( "I will be a post racial president") he has hired no less than five lobbyists to be in his administration after saying that lobbyist wouldn't be allowed in the Whitehouse. He is a total fraud. If you are reading this and voted for him look me in the face and tell me you feel good about it. Yeah, that's what I thought. I'm not saying that pseudo republican McCain was the answer, I'm just saying that the unions wouldn't own General Motors and we all wouldn't paying for the "Cash for Clunkers."

While I'm on the subject. What's so great about hybrids? Where are we going to put all the batteries when they are discarded? Who wants to drive a car that only goes 60 MPH?

Hey, for all you dipshits that voted for Barry, did you know that under his health care plan Rush Limbaugh gets free health care? He makes 25 million a year. He doesn't buy health insurance because of that but under this plan he's covered. That's what you voted for dumbasses.

Outside of politics.

I have more good friends than most people have friends. If I wanted to have a barnraising, my friends would literally come from hundreds of miles to help me. If I needed a kidney ( which I might) I would have my choice of the best donor because that's how many people would be there for me. What a great life I have. No man, on God's Earth has as many friends who would be there for me at the drop of a hat than I do. What I did to deserve this I have no idea. Maybe its because I treat people the way I want to be treated and for that I am rewarded. That and the fact that I've chosen to surround myself with good people and I am lucky for that.

Cheers and safe journeys,

Chip
