Took the wife to lunch at Subway over near the docks. As we are sitting in our car, parked – engine off – the driver of a taxi parked right next to us opens his door and slammed it into our car with enough force to rock us to the side. I get out and thankfully, because it’s a Saturn I think, there is no damage to the door panel and this guy is backing away from me pretty quick.
I blow it off and climb back in (The wife was on the phone so I was waiting for her) and I watch the taxi guy walk away. As he is moving I see something fall out of his pocket and recognize that it is money. So, I get out walk over and pick it up. It’s twenty bucks. The guy still hasn’t noticed he lost it and I could just walk away $20 richer and he would never know. He did slam the hell out of my car after all.
I hollered at him and when he turned around handed him the money he dropped.
That’s the difference between us and them. We do what we do because it really is the right thing. They do what they do to grab whatever they can while claiming it’s for the ‘greater good’.
School has piled on, like it always does, so I’m not dead I’m just REALLY busy. This week though is spring break so I have a whole ten days to do homework.
The weather out here is warming up and the sun is shining so it looks like we are done with the rain for awhile so the windows are open and Misto is running around like she’s hopped up on crack and jumping from window shelf to window shelf and chirping each time. I think Spring is her favorite season. She’ll hang out at the windows watching and listening to the birds outside (and I am sure she is planning how to get out there and grab one of them).
In other areas, I am saddened and pissed at the health care bill passing. This is not how our government is supposed to be run. 75% of the population is against it and yet Congress rammed it through with bribes and promises. Stupak sold out for airport money, the “Cornhusker kickback” all of it is a disgusting display of corruption and to add icing to the bullshit cake, THEY are exempt from the bill. Yea, we have different rules than they do. The most “Open and Honest Congress EVAH” doesn’t have to live by the rules they pass. Gee, that doesn’t sound like “a government of the people and by the people” that Obambi was talking about at ALL!
I personally will do everything I can this coming election cycle and every one after this to drive every Democrat from office like St. Patrick did with the snakes, and there are many similarities between today’s Democrap party and a snake. I hope by the time the next election is over saying your a Democrat has the same effect as saying your a member of the KKK – Oh, wait, they already have members of the KKK in there. Then we’ll hope they become as popular as having a STD and ring worms.
I have never really been politically active, but I sure as hell have become that was since moving out here and seeing the lunacy that forms the left of our country. I have had high school students try and tell me how evil our government was for fighting in Vietnam but when I ask them very simply “Why were we over there in the first place?” They don’t know!! They have absolutely NO IDEA AT ALL! According to what they learned, we just went over there because we were a bunch of evil white guys who wanted to send the poor off to fight a war for no reason at all!
I want a new Congress, one that will de-fund all the departments that we don’t need to actually do the federal government’s business – the Department of Education, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, HUD, Amtrak, GM, Planned Parenthood, ACORN. I want all government grant programs shut down – the governments job is not to give my money away to some program they decide is worthy of it, it MY job to decide if they deserve my cash and then I can give it to them. The easiest form of corruption has been government grants – take that away and a good chunk of the problem is solved.
All I want my government spending money on is the military. That’s what they exist for – not medical research, not airports, child obesity programs, or any of that other crap. All that can be handled by the states and the local communities, and SHOULD BE! The Feds only real job is protecting us from bad guys that would want to invade and kill us – that means military. There are plenty of companies out there that would give money for medical research, homeless shelters, job training and all that other stuff if they already weren’t being taxed and burdened to their financial limit by a federal government that has decided we exist to serve them.
Well, I’m no man’s slave and I intend to make sure they understand this. I will help get every one of them thrown out of office and then I’ll help hold our new reps feet to the fire until they tear down this government that our founding fathers never wanted.
