Don't Tax On Me

April 30 2010

We want national security. We want international security. Some of us wanted the war in Iraq. (Some of us didn't, and we got it and have it.) Some of us want the war in Afghanistan. (Some of us didn't, and we got it and have it.) We want policemen for protection and park officials for patrolling national parks. We want good roads. We want our services. We want it all, and we deserve it all.

But don't raise my taxes - nobody wants to pay for it.

So - who's going to pay for all this?

Yo Mamma?

Why do the British pronounce "issues" as "Iss-ee-yous" instead of "Ish-oos" like it's spelled?

Illegal Schmillegal

Re: the new Immigration Law in Arizona

Which should be more accurately called Paranoid White Racist American Law.

"They take away our jobs!" Uh - no they don't. How many Americans work for $1 an hour in the fields and live 15 to a one-room shack? How many of you are going to whine, complain, blame the guv'ment, weep and gnash your teeth when the prices of: fruits, vegetables, housing, construction, hotels, fast food, car repair, and, well, just about everything, goes up, because these Undesirables no longer work on the cheap for us all?

Instead of building a Berlin wall, shooting perpetrators, or barricading yourself in your home so as not to be near 'those people,' think about some options.

Like: if the illegals were legalized and made to: pay taxes, social security and medicare, buy health and car insurance, they 1) wouldn't want to come here so much and 2) they'd be contributing to society, bring medical and car insurance costs down, and helping pay for the system that supports them now for free. That would mean, more savings, more money, for you and me!

A wall's not going to keep them out, border patrols won't keep them out; they aren't going to stop driving cars and using hospitals; ain't no white people going to be flooding the fields to take the illegals' jobs; white officials' hands and pockets will get greased to look the other way just as easily as they are now... so let's think about the realities (one of which is NOT a pure white members-only United White States) before blood is shed over this.

Get over yourselves, Pure (But Not Really) White People.

Fly the Friendly Skies

Tuesday April 20 2010

wow. listen to all those people complaining they can't get a flight home from their vacations in Europe because of the grounding of flights due to the ash clouds from the Iceland volcano eruption.

One would think the Air Transportation WhoHahs are basing their decisions on the safety of passengers and the desire to prevent tragedies of crashed airplanes and dead people. I reckon it would be worth it to be stuck in Spain or France if there was a possibility I might die in a plane crash. I could eat lots of tapas and pastries and read a couple of books while I waited.

Think of the even louder outcries (from these same people) if a plane crashes because it flew too soon when it wasn't that safe.

Is it worth just one plane crashing?

Are they all really in THAT big a hurry to get home?

Would you be willing to gamble on the odds?
