That's It!

Kerry had far more grace and dignity than Al Gore, or Teresa Heinz-Kerry at the concession speech (who nearly got left behind and almost fell backwards on stage - I blame the raisins).

So you got second place. But really Kerry is in First Place in my mind.

First Place Loser!

Ahahahahahahahahahah!

Not over till its over

Okay we are not quite done with the election, yet.

Ohio of all states is not "officially" for Bush. Kerry is trying to draw this out despite Bush clearly winning in Ohio and several other states and in the popular vote.

Waiting...

Who will blink first? Oh and I fully expect this time that Alec Baldwin et al. get on a plane and finally leave the country like he said he would if Bush won. Okay now he REALLY won, so start packing.

If Kerry Wins...

If Kerry Wins tonight, we will not be getting a "fresh start." In fact we will regress to a point before Sept. 11, 2001. A time when nuclear proliferation was the primary international crisis (remember Pakistan and India nearly nuked each other).

Terrorism will be treated as a law-enforcement concern, as it was under Clinton (who rounded up and sent to jail the cell responsible for the first - unsuccessful - WTC bombing).

Taxes will go back up to the point before Bush was elected thereby wiping out the economic progress we have made since a recession, massive terrorist attack and near collapse of the entire US airline industry, tourism industry and any businesses operating from the WTC complex.

If you think Sept. 11, 2001 didn't really affect the economy I must beg to differ. One Spet. 10, 2001 I was working on finishing a new consumer-type product that would have been debuted at a trade show in a different state. Due to the cancellation of civilian air traffic in the days following the terrorist attacks the trade show was effectively canceled. Any business started at the trade show would never happen, orders would now not be filled, etc. etc.

I would really hate to call such a string of events a "nuisance" as under Bill Clinton's leering eye.

The simple fact that France wants Bush to lose should speak volumes. Remember once that France negotiated with Hitler prior to simply giving up its sovereignty to the dictator. France also assisted in the extermination of Jews by rounding them up and shipping them off on trains. That is the kind of "ally" we will have, again, under a Kerry administration.

I certainly hope this is all moot. Otherwise we might as well simply prepare for a really bad four years, at least this time we will be somewhat ready (at least until Kerry throws out all early warning systems, recalls all military forces and reacts to a new terrorist strike).

Vote not for yourself, but for the future of our way of life.

Skew The Vote 2004

Got this from Rock the Vote (Don't Ask):


Why should you vote?

Because you’ve been looking for a job for way too long.

Or your crappy job is not what you ever thought you would be doing.

Or you can barely pay rent ‘cause you’re paying off all of your student loans.

So you are forced to borrow more money and charge more things to your credit cards.


So it's G. W. Bush's fault you took General Studies in college and now you can't get a decent job? And what is a decent job? Who defines this, the President?

And this is all making you overspend your income? Maybe if you stopped buying every new XBOX video game for $50 a pop and spent it on getting secondary education you could get out of your shit-job and move up in the world? No, it's still G. W. Bush's fault.

More...


In fact, credit card debt has climbed 100% in the last decade for the 18-24 set.

Forget about health insurance. You haven’t seen a doctor in ages because that crappy job of yours wants to stick you with the tab, if they even offer it.

You’re not alone. Young people everywhere in this country are all wondering the same thing: What is up with the job market??

The truth is:

The unemployment rate is twice as high for young people. Outsourcing is hitting us especially hard.

But there is something we can do.

Together, we can make politicians pay attention to our needs. By voting.

So take 5 friends, and vote like you never voted before.

On November 2, you’re the boss.
You have the power to say, “You’re Hired.”

On November 2nd, rock the vote.


Again with the credit card debt. Young people today demand a bling-bling lifestyle, whose fault is that? Notice they don't mention that interest rates are at all-time lows. Why not refinance your student loans or get a new credit card with a much lower rate and transfer the balance thereby lowering your payments? No, vote for Kerry (implied, naturally) and he will *somehow* fix everything.

The unemployment rate is twice as high for young people because A) they are generally lazy, B) they expect to get a $50k job immediately after getting out of school or C) It's all G. W. Bush's fault?

The job market is just fine if you don't mind getting dirty and actually, you know, working. I can tell you several growing markets in the USA: medical, custom/high performance auto, construction.

All of these fields require some secondary education, but often reward with high wages and room for advancement. If you get a tech support job you will end up hating it, not have any room to move up (except maybe as a supervisor) and get pissed that your crappy job is outsourced (which doesn't make much sense).

I fail to see how this is Bush's fault. The dot-com get-rich-quick era is over, deal with it. Go get some secondary education or special skills and get a better job and shut the fuck up already.
