I have changed my mind!

After reading the quote I will reprint below, I have come to think that religious instruction is schools is not only needed, but should be mandatory! Evolution must be taught in schools!

Once you read thins quote, I am sure you will agree as well.

“Secular schools can never be tolerated because such a school has no religious instruction and a general moral instruction without a religious foundation is built on air; consequently, all character training and religion must be derived from faith ... We need believing people.” -- Adolph Hitler

Surely if Hitler said it, it must be true.

Congressman Patrick Kennedy, while under the influence of prescription drugs, allegedly, crashed his car near the Capitol early Thursday morning. It was 3 am, he was driving without lights, and he narrowly missed a police cruiser.


Puh-leeze! He's a Kennedy! They don't arrest Kennedys when they break the law.

Field sobriety test?

HAH! Kennedys don't do field sobriety tests. Police sergeants took over and, wait for it. . . . . . . . .DROVE HIM HOME!

Where's the Liberal outrage? If it had been Bush or Cheney, why they'd be gearing up the protests now. Where's MADD on this? They should be on this like ugly on an ape (no offense to apes). The guy was driving while under the influence. He admits it! But no ticket. No charges. No harm. No foul.

Must be nice to be a Democrat.

The Creep posted this comment:

How about instead of visiting debt free solutions you instead stop spending more than you make? It's a simple concept I call " Quit cryin don't spend more than you earn"

Well, Mr. Creep, sir, I know it's hard to read an entire blog when you're using Blogmad or Blogexplosion, and thank you for taking the time to read mine. I only read about 1/10th of the blogs I visit, and I appreciate that you found mine worthy of comment. And as simply and elegant as your solution is, it doesn't address my entire problem.

you see, Mr. Creep, on August 20, 2005, my plan was to be debt free by The end of August this year. I had already planned who and how much I would pay from each paycheck, and was excited that within months I could finally live my life as you do. Then a friend called and asked if I would like to play golf in the morning. "Sure," I answered, and met him at the course at 8:30 am Sunday morning.

At 9 am, I was in the back of an ambulance with a broken ankle. The gory details can be found here.

Had I had your advice at that point, Mr. Creep, I could have told the ambulance driver, "No, I don't have $500 for an ambulance ride. I can't go." At 10 am, I was in the emergency room, and I could have told the x-ray tech, "I don't have $120 for each x-ray. I'll pass." At 4 pm, whilst I lay in pre-op, I could have told the doctor, "I don't have $3000 to pay you for the surgery. Thanks anyway." And I could have told the nurses afterwards, "I can't afford the $2000 a night you guys charge at this particular bed and breakfast."

You see, Mr. Creep, I went from $12,000 in debts to $33,000 in debts in a couple of moments when I heard the sound of my leg bones breaking. Sometimes, sir, you do not have the choice about whether or not to spend money. I'll admit and confess that the first $12,000 was pissed away. But without insurance, I had no choice about spending the money to be treated.

So, Mr. Creep, now you have the whole story, and why I was so frustrated with my financial situation. Thanks again for your comment, but it just doesn't apply in this particular case.

I met a relative's new boyfriend the other day. He was tall, and broadly built. She introduced us, and we shook hands.

The handshake, at least among men, is how we judge each other. So we try to cultivate a firm handshake that says we're confident. The new boyfriend's handshake was very firm.

As bones popped in my hand, I tried to keep my eyes from bugging out, met his eyes and said, "nice to meet you." What I wanted to say was, "Okay! You can be the big dog! Let me roll over on my back and expose my stomach!"

Lyndon Johnson used to lean in nose to nose to someone, drape his left arm over the persons shoulder, grab the lapel of their jacket in their right hand and browbeat them into submission. It was called the Johnson Treatment. It was his way of showing dominance.

Minutemen SOFT on Illegal Immigrant

Last week a group of illegal immigrants were detained at the border. All but one of their number was returned to Mexico. One was taken in by a Minuteman, and adopted.

It was a puppy, but isn't an illegal dog an illegal alien?

Like the white students who participated in the LA school walkouts, I too will participate in today's work boycott. And like the white students in LA, I am doing it for the day off. I have a book I want to finish. Instead of a Mexican flag, I'm flying a British flag, since most of my ancestors (before the American Revolution) came from England.

Don't get me wrong, I oppose the plan to tighten immigration and the creation of walls along our borders (Look at the number of Canadians making TV shows here! They get paid twice as much here as they do in the Great White North, which is why American TV crews film in Canada! Perfect circular logic, isn't it?) I support a guest worker plan that requires these workers pay So-So Security taxes, so I'll have money when I retire!

Could someone pass me a mimosa on your way out?

I went to Barnes and Noble last week, and found an entire table of books related to The DaVinci Code. The was the original book, books that said Dan Brown was only telling half the truth, and books that asserted that Dan Brown was a complete liar.

Well, of course he's lying.

It's fiction!

The Fundies aren't taking this fiction lying down. Spurred by the same feelings that caused Ayatollah Khomeini to issue a fatwah against Salman Rushdie, they are launching an all out attack, not on the movie, but on the viewer: "'Our concern is that "The Da Vinci Code" will mislead people about the truth,' said Bishop Robert Forsyth" of Australia. So they have set up a website to put the truth out there 'cause people are stupid.

Before anyone says, "That's what the right does," rest assured that the Left participates in this kind of activity. Remember when Rush Limbaugh first got popular? The Left said he was brainwashing his listeners. To parody the charge, Rush started telling his listeners to relax over the weekend and he would read the newspapers for them and tell them what to think on Monday.

When Bush Jr. won the presidency, the Left began complaining that Bush brainwashed the public into voting for him. That if they were smart, they would have voted for Kerry.

Personally, I'm getting tired of all of it. Just because I disagree with a Leftie or Rightie doesn't mean I'm stupid. So stop implying it.
