Constitutional Amendments for the Rest of Us

So the Man/Woman Marriage Only Constitutional Amendment was put down and in response Kerry wants to make a Constitutional Amendment to guarantee everyone (including illegal aliens who manage to not get deported from the country) Health Care.

Really now, overwhelming majority of people who need/want health care can get it in this country including fully illegal aliens who cannot be turned away from an ER by law even if they don't pay a dime.

How about a Constitutional Amendment (boy that's a long two words) to guarantee a Speedy Loan Approval? Or how about Debt Forgiveness once every 7 years if you screw up really badly like we do with the third world (way to teach them fiscal responsibility, just forget you ever loaned them any money!)?

Or how about a right to a nice car or truck? Or a home at least 1800 square feet in size with two full baths? Or digital cable TV and high speed internet access?

And why not make minimum wage $10-12 since that is about the threshold a small family can live on (especially if they are given a nice home and vehicle)?

You know, stuff we otherwise wouldn't have without the Government helpings us to get it?

The 9/11 Commission Report, Redux

Everyone is talking about the damn 9/11 Comission Report and now we see why Bush opposed it.

From the report we learned the following:

* A group called "al Queda" (official spelling of the US Government) plotted and executed an attack on this country on Sept. 11, 2001.

* This group is "stateless" and based largely on "ideology" and wants to murder us all.

* This group has a figurehead named "Osama bin Laden" (OSotUSG) who wants to get as many Islamist people to murder us all.

* Neither Bill Clinton nor George W. Bush did enough to either recognize the threat or work to stop it within 8 years for Clinton or 8 months for George W. Bush (Add in the fact that a meager amount of info on the growing threat that was passed from the outgoing admin to the new admin, especially after a very protracted transfer thanks to the "disputed" 2000 election. -Ed.)

* The CIA is a Cold-War relic that was underfuned and unprepared to deal with global terrorism on the scale of al Queda. Plus institutional policies (Political Correctness to the Nth) makes finding the terrorists harder despite knowing exactly which ethnic groups are trying to murder us all.

Pretty much everything we knew about 2 weeks post-Sept. 11, 2001. Thank you for your support (and Witch Hunt against Condi Rice, Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Ashcroft et al) 9/11 Commission, assholes.

In this context, do you understand why Sandy Berger was accidentally stuffing down his pants official government documents about what the Clinton Admin was doing to prevent *another* attack (after WTF 1993, 2 separate African Embassy Bombings and the USS Cole in 200)?

Movie Weekend

I think I am going to catch some movies tomorrow. I'd like to see I, Robot and maybe The Bourne Supremacy — the wife wants to see The Bourne Supremacy specifically.

Might as well make it a double-feature!

I, Robot definitely at least looks interesting, but in vary different ways than the Bourne movie. I think Matt Damon is trying to recast himself as an action-movie-star like Wil, which is fine as long as he doesn't look out of place in the next action movie (Bourne is kind of a stretch for Damon - for me personally).

We shall see!

Bush Looka Like A Bad Man!

Anyone see a resemblance to a certain Mad TV character in Linda Ronstadt?

Tragedy? Are you fucking kidding me?

A Mac news website called Sept. 11, 2001 a "tragedy."

I guess this is the definition the author was thinking of:

2. A fatal and mournful event; any event in which human lives are lost by human violence, more especially by unauthorized violence.

Okay, so that is accurate to a point. But unauthorized violence? Good lord!

Why not just call it what it was, an attack?

1. The act of attacking, or falling on with force or violence; an onset; an assault; -- opposed to defense.

That seems more appropriate, wouldn't you think? Was Sept. 11, 2001 more of an assault than an unauthorized demolition of two very large buildings, that just happened to have 50,000 people inside and underneath them (thee was a subway terminal and many levels below ground at the former WTC site)?

I survived!

I SURVIED! WHAT? OOPS CAPS IS ON. Sorry I have been drinking the last of my Coronas after getting off my first three-days of 12 hour shifts back to back.

Whomever came up with this 12 shift thing is a fucking MORON. I can barely move, I can hardly bend my knees. Usually my left knee is bad, but today my right felt like it was going to just fail (a guy I used to work with had this happen, his leg bent SIDEWAYS, ew!).

It wasn't too bad today, mostly stood in one place and waited for the 12 hours to roll off. It doesn't matter what I do, its not that big of a job and I don't think I can do this for too long. If I manage to get a pay raise after my "probation" phase I will stay a little longer, otherwise forget it. There is a substantial capital expenditure required to work there I didn't know about and I have to move in like two weeks to get into the proper school zone for BOTH of my kids (yay!). Guess which one I am going to do!

This means absolutely nothing to you, you have your own problems. I am merely explaining my lack of posting s'all. That and I don't like "posting" anymore. I kinda like commenting rarely on other people's blogs, when I have time (thanks to rotating 12 hour shift things!).

This is called "doing what you have to" because your significant other refused to compromise BEFORE you got this back-breaking job. Now that you have it they can do all kinds of stuff they want to do! Isn't marriage fun? STAY SINGLE for as long as possible, really. Save yourself!

In my defense it's the several (I thouht I had three, but I cant remember) beers I had tonight talkin. Which parts this pertains to is left as an exercise to the reader. all three of you.

BTW I work another two days this week. And that's all for a full paycheck! Neener neener neener! Goddamn I am tire.....
