On your mark! Get set! MOOOOO!

The pistol shot - which sounds surprisingly like a refrigerator door being slammed on Thanksgiving leftovers - has rung out, signaling the beginning of the Cattle Christmas shopping season.  And, On cue, the cattle are shooting out the gates as though the corral was on fire.
The day after Thanksgiving is commonly known as “Black Friday”, [...]

Tempus Fugit

I’ve been meaning to post this since Saturday.  In addition to being the much touted Veteran’s Day, Saturday was my parents’ 40th wedding anniversary.  That’s right- 40 years.  In a time when marriages have a lifespan averaging 3-5 years, 40 years seems like an eternity.
To celebrate, I took my dad to an Ethiopian restraunt in [...]

Who the hell wants to live in New York?

One could ask that very question of one Mr. Chuck Rangel (D-NY) after he said “Mississippi gets more than their fair share back in federal money, but who the hell wants to live in Mississippi?” yesterday.
One must also ask what Rangel considers to be “more than their fair share”.  New York has more crime, more welfare, and [...]

The preemptive rant

by @ Thursday, November 9th, 2006. Filed under Pissed Off Rants

Every year, I make it a habit to post a rant about the commercial silliness that floods the world at the end of the year.  Usually my rants are about the hypocrisy of the season - you know, the mentality I summed up in last year’s rant as “Praise Jesus, now pass the Playstation”.  Actually, [...]

Once again, I’m sitting here at work maintaining an eagle-eyed vigilance over the network and preventing ne’er-do-wells from assaulting our sacred network.  Okay, okay.  I’m sitting here on my ass looking at a bunch of squiggly little lines playing out across five different monitors, but that doesn’t sound quite as dramatic, don’t you think?
My new [...]

Malkin: Republicans, not Conservatives, lose

Michelle Malkin writes about how Republicans, not Conservatives, lost yesterday’s election.  I agree with her in part.  Conservatives lost out a long time ago.

Missing the point

by @ Wednesday, November 8th, 2006. Filed under Politics

Already the hate mail is coming in accusing me of cheering for a Democratic win in the House.  Nothing could be further from the truth.
I want to reiterate something I have said before.  The Democrats did not win the House; the Republicans lost it.  On the surface they look the same, but they truly are [...]

Lyrics

by @ Wednesday, November 8th, 2006. Filed under Music

A while back, I had a feature in which I posted the lyrics to songs that I found inspiring, or songs that I simply liked alot.  It has been a while since I posted any lyrics, so I figured I would pick back up where I left off so long ago.   This installment of the feature [...]
