I’ve been online for at least 15 minutes and I haven’t been prompted to update Adobe (fill in the blank … flash, reader, etc.), yet.

I’ll try to keep you posted, but if I “go dark”, at least you’ll have advance warning.

She may have had a better handle on what to do on healthcare, but she’s a neocon.

Elizabeth Warren, who I’d support, has made it crystal-clear that she’s not running. This basically leaves me at choosing Biden or whatever truly horrendous right wing extremist fuck-stick the GOP allows the crazed baggers to nominate. Or maybe someone can beat Biden in a primary. I don’t claim to know, but historically VPs have succeeded POTUS’s.

Who should I vote for in the general election? The Green candidate, who (if they get enough votes) will get the truly horrendous right wing extremist fuck-stick the GOP allows the crazed baggers candidate elected? The Libertarian candidate (don’t insult my intelligence)? Maybe I should protest the complete failure of the American political system by writing in Goofy or Minnie Mouse, which would result in the election of the truly horrendous right wing extremist fuck-stick the GOP allows the crazed baggers to be nominated.

I agree we’re trapped by our system. I don’t agree letting the truly horrendous right wing extremist fuck-stick the GOP allows the crazed baggers candidate GETS INTO THE WHITE HOUSE and then runs the world into the ground to teach the world a lesson about electing truly horrendous right wing extremist fuck-stick the GOP allowing the crazed baggers is the best outcome.

We NEED government. Do you want to drive anywhere? You need government. Do you want your bank to treat you fairly? You need government.

…I’m not absolutely convinced that the majority of Americans are too stupid to walk and breathe at the same time.

The public still blames Bush.

Nearly five years after George W. Bush left office, half the public still blames the former president for the nation’s economic woes, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll released this week. The survey comes as Republicans have continued to keep the 43rd president at arm’s length.

Man repays insurance money with 4 tons of coins

An Illinois businessman outraged by a court order that he return more than $500,000 in insurance money related to a 2001 wreck that killed his teenage son wanted to pay the money back in pennies in protest, only to recognize that was unfeasible.

So, Roger Herrin settled on quarters _ four tons of them.

Packed in 150 transparent sacks each weighing about 50 pounds, the $150,000 in coins were nearly one-third of the money an appellate court required Herrin to pay back to resolve years-long legal feuding among the crash’s survivors over how $800,000 in insurance proceeds were apportioned.

Last night, on my way home from work, I stopped at the grocery store. By the time I got back to my car I realized how late it was, that I was REALLY hungry, and that if I went back to my apartment and then tried to cook it would be even later. Afraid that my stomach might actually start dissolving itself, I went to the combination Taco Bell and KFC near the grocery store and ordered a 5 buck box.

I’ve been in this restaurant several times. The guy behind the counter was saying “I’m waiting on original recipe”. They seem to regularly run out of original recipe, because I think this has been the scene every time I’ve been there. At any rate, the seating area was rapidly filling with people waiting on their chicken. Some of them were there when I walked in, and were still there when I left with my food, so I can see why they’d be a little annoyed at “fast food”, under the circumstances.

Anyhoo, one of the waiting customers was a nicely dressed, distinguished looking older gentleman. He asked, in a loud voice, “what’s going on back there? There are more of us out here than there are of you back there! Do you want some of us to come help?”

He looked around for encouragement/back up. A few people smiled, but the crowd was mostly silent. I know I wasn’t in the mood to get involved. I was just there to get something to eat, not to make the life of a bunch of minimum wage people even worse. He got quiet for a few minutes.

Then, just as he started a second “where’s our food?” shout, an older guy, dressed in shorts and a t-shirt, walked in. As soon as distinguished guy stopped complaining, older guy said (in an equally loud voice), “you don’t wanna be messin’ with people who are preparing your food.”

Half the seating area, including me, burst out laughing.

Distinguished guy quit complaining.

All that wisdom for only 5 bucks, and I got to eat, too! :-)
