I’m still alive.
I write, you whine….
Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated. What’s been taking up my time? Work. Shooting. Skydiving. Home Brewing. Gym. The list is endless. When the hell did I get so many hobbies?
In a sick way, I miss blogging. I wonder what happened to all my stalking, death threat delivering, nutcase stalkers? Those were the days. I was always amazed at how seriously idiots take the internet.
So let’s play catch up. My lab is now 3 years old. I only went on one skydiving vacation this year. I’ve purchased several new firearms, another 34′ camper, and a helmet cam. I’m sure I missed something there.
My chimney blew off.
Then part of my roof blew off. Having a house over 100 years old is pretty slick, but requires constant repair.
I just bottled a batch of Amber Ale, and I have a batch of Imperial Pale Ale in primary.
I hit 30 countries in 2 days on 20 meters last month.
So that’s about it. Guns, beer, travel, and falling from the sky. Who could ask for more? Here’s hoping 2010 is as great to me as 2009 was.
Are flight attendants in short supply? Are they scraping the bottom of the resume pools? Why on earth would they employ fat people? They work in a thin tube, walking up and down a thinner aisle.
The aisle seat used to be great. You could stretch out your leg, get to the bathroom without disturbing people sitting next to you. You got a little extra shoulder room with your own arm rest. That’s all changed. Now it’s a place to have a fat ass bounced off your head every time the fat stewardess walks by.
Seriously. Hire some thin people.
I sat there watching the President speak in utter disbelief. Seriously. How the fuck did this happen? How did we get a President who OPENLY calls for operational control of a private corporation? Has anyone read the Constitution? Does anyone understand economics? For the past decade we’ve been propping up bad debt with government security. Now, when that bad debt does what it’s supposed to do (go bad) we bail out those companies. The market crashes. The economy crumbles. What does this Administration do to fix the problem? Why, bolster programs that caused the problem to begin with. Makes sense, right? Sweet Baby Jesus.
He needs to go before he makes things worse. He needs to take that fucking nutcase Barney Frank with him. Calling Scalia a homophobe? Has he bothered to look up Scalia’s voting record? Why does nobody call him on his idiocy? Why is he still in Washington?
If you’re employed, hard working, and pay your taxes, you’re fucked.
Well, unless your someone who’s never worked for your money, anyway. Let the redistribution begin. If The One gets his way, we’ll spend more during this administration than all others combined. We’ll move towards more government control of….well, everything. We’ll tax the job makers until they bleed, then spread it amongst the job evaders. We’ll silence talk radio. We’ll reward irresponsible behavior. Yay us.
Is that what the founding fathers had in mind? Create a “working class” who’s job is to support those who choose not to? That’s not fair. Some are unable to. Many people are unable to work do to their disabilities. You know. Obesity. Depression. Anxiety. Fear of labor. The people who bled to turn their vision of a free land where men and women are able to make their own way without government oppression into a reality have been betrayed. I guess they didn’t foresee citizens allowing themselves to become subjects. It’s quite easy, really. Create a class of people supported by your representatives in government, with your money. Continue to support them for generations, fostering their dependence. Toss out a candidate who can motivate their unemployed, lazy asses and get them to the polls. Voila! Socialism!
It’s a sad day for America. Even if we turn it around, the effect will be felt for generations.
Glock 30. I’ve never been a Glock guy, but this just felt great. It’s accurate, small, and has a 10 + 1 capacity of .45 ACP goodness.
Can we now talk about what a nightmare this is shaping up to be? Sure, I’m disappointed with the election. I would have disappointed with the election if McCain had won also. I’m a pretty strict Constitutionalist. Obama is a very liberal Democrat. Essentially, he stands for everything I’m against. Higher taxes, more hand-outs, less safety.
I’m willing to give the guy a chance. It certainly isn’t looking good, though.
The proposed head of Homeland Security (you know, that little organization that is tasked with securing the homeland) Janet Napolitano has talked tough about clamping down on immigration. That’s a great speech. It’s only a speech, though. Janet has been tasked with governing Arizona and it’s borders. She’s allowed Arizona to be the greatest source of illegal immigrants in the U.S. Where’s the media outcry?
We also have the Commerce Department head nominee, Bill Richardson, who……. wait, he had to drop out in scandal.
Well, there’s always Tim Geithner, nominated to lead the Treasury Department. He’s lauded as a financial genius. Of course, he also tried to bilk the U.S. government out of thousands of dollars by failing to pay taxes. The media (you know, that impartial reporting group) systematically reported that it was an honest mistake, one which he was sorry for. Of course, we now learned that it was intentional and happened numerous times. Nobody cares, though. After all, if he’s good enough for the messiah, he’s good enough for us, right?
We can’t forget the Secretary of State nominee, Hillary Clinton. The skeletons aren’t even in her closet anymore. She publicly asserts that she’ll go as far as she can in the performance of her duties without harming the Nation. Oh, wait. She didn’t say nation. She said her husband’s foundation. She’ll go as far as she can to help the country, providing it doesn’t stop her husband’s gravy train. You remember her husband? Bill Clinton? Impeached President? Disbarred?
I could go on, but why bother? Few of us care. The media doesn’t. The corporations don’t. The public doesn’t appear to.
Larsen & Brusgaard Pro-Dytter. Necessary? Hell no. That’s the beauty of new toys. I also faxed in the design for the Wings container I’m in the process of having made. Supposedly, it’s going to take 14 weeks. Pictures when it comes. In the meantime, here’s the dytter.
