I purchased a new HP Deskjet 3940 yesterday. It cost me $50. I checked on Amazon, and the cartridges cost about $15 each. That means that when I run out of ink, it would almost be cheaper to buy a new printer. Gotta love that business model!

The Left is calling it "Cheney's Chappaquiddick." Cheney can only hope it turns out so well! Ted Kennedy is the darling of the Liberals and can do no wrong. Here's a comparison between the two "incidents:"

Armstrong Ranch
Drunk politician takes a woman, not his wife, in a ride in a golf cart to do some quail hunting with a couple other people Drunk politician takes a woman, not his wife, home from a party.
Drunk attorney gets a little in front of hunting line. When dogs flush a covey of quail, drunk politician shoots him. Drunk politician drives off bridge, gets out of car and swims to the bank of the creek. Returns to party, ignores phone, and gets other party goers to try to rescue woman, not his wife.
Drunk politician rushes wounded drunk attorney to hospital. Drunk politician decides to go home.
Next morning, sober politician calls authorities. Next morning, sober politician calls attorney, then authorities.
Elected VP twice Elected to Senate for life, effectively
You and me?: Large fine for improper license + using a firearm while under the influence + public intoxication + failure to notify authorities = JAIL You and me?: DUI + public intoxication + failure to notify authorities + leaving the scene of an accident + involuntary manslaughter = JAIL

Yep, if this is Cheney's Chappaquiddick, he's got nothing to worry about! Kennedy can be for the environment, but against wind power in his backyard. Kennedy can be for the inheritance tax while sheilding his family fortune in trusts so his kids won't have to pay it. Kennedy can write a law requiring large oil companies to pay usage fees while exempting the smaller oil companies his family owns. Cheney will have it made!

I have said that our invasion of Iraq was a bad idea, mainly because it was Saddam Hussein who kept the Sunnis and Shi'ites from killing each other in that country. Without him, the rival factions of Islam would be at each other's throat.

A Shi'ite shrine was severly damaged in Samarra, Iraq, the work of a Sunni bomb. Predictably, the crowd chanted anti-Isreal and anti-American slogans as they threw rocks at Sunni mosques.

Religion of Peace, my ass.

I had the weirdest dream last night. My mom, dad, uncle and I were at some mall, riding a bus without walls around the outside of the mall, apparently going from store to store. The weird part? At each stop, people would calmly wait for people to get off the bus before getting on the bus. You know that would never happen in real life.

Call Congressional hearings! Impeach Cheney! Impeach Bush! t occured on Saturday, February 18. It was reported in the paper on the 20th. Why did it take them so long to report the news. Cover up!

After getting all lathered up on Saturday because my Linux computer wouldn't connect to the wireless network in the house, I got it up and running Sunday. It gets a pretty good signal in the dining room. Time to move it back out to the storage building.

Or rather, it will be when the temp gets above 45° F.

however, using this computer I am reminded why I wasn't using it. SLOOOOWW! I had maxed out the Ram, but it's Pentium I processor just doesn't have the oomph I'm used to.

Why Not Kinky?

To the People of Texas and all Americans in the world,

We are besieged by partisan politics as usual. We have sustained a continual bombardment and cannonade for years and have lost many of our freedoms. The enemy, the major political parties, has demanded we surrender even more liberties and freedoms. Kinky Friedman has answered the demand with a cannon shot, and his flag still waves proudly from the wall. Why the Hell not?

Then I call on you, in the name of Liberty, of patriotism and every thing dear to the American character, to come to Kinky's aid with all dispatch. The enemy is receiving monetary reinforcements daily and will no doubt increase their war chests to immense sizes.

Save yourself for Kinky. DO NOT vote in the March primaries. If you vote, you will be ineligible to sign the petition to put Kinky's name on the ballot in 2006. Take the Kinky Pledge! How hard could it BE?

May the God of our choice bless us all!

I stole the image from Actual Miles. I would have stolen it from Kinky, but he doesn't have a good image of it. And yes, I did order one of 'em. Anyway, thanks, ZiPpo!
