Mwahahahaha, keep pointing fingers at each other repubs. I dare 'ya! Losing sucks, doesn't it? Nice to be on the other end once in a while.

Smaller, but better. Hordes of folks are fleeing the Socialist Northeast and moving south so that they can vote Republican. Classic.
With all of the job losses, it's amazing how some manage to hold down a job, much less in the U.S. House of Representatives. Bachmann is better than the Onion.

In other news, here is a couch.

One needn't look much further than Arlen Specter's defection from GOP ranks today to see that the current trajectory of that party spells disaster for them. Form ranks behind the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and other talk radio blowhards at your own peril. We saw signs of it in the election (Colin Powell and, for what it's worth, Buckley Jr.'s son), and it continues. It is a two party system, and I am sure eventually the pendulum will swing back. But I think it's going to be a good long while, and thank God.

Check out the guitar solo at about 3:25ish. 11 years old. Hahahahaha! School of ROCK!

On the other hand, I am reminded how l o n g that Journey song is.
So many things are converging at once it's hard to say how I'm feeling. We're settling into our new house, liking the new neighborhood so far, staying focused on that. Meanwhile, another round of layoffs at work, safe for now, but one can never be too sure. I've been through a number of downturns, but have managed to stay standing. I take solace in the fact that there will always be a need for technical support for complex hardware or software and that, in this day and age, we are all free agents. Fear is not an option, but uncertainty vexes the mind some. Head down, go to work, keep grinding. Such is life. "Onward and outward," announces one who approaches middle age with a fluctuating waistline.

Memo to Dick Cheney: Go fuck yourself.

Monday, April 20, 2009

Love the quotations from Reuters in the following paragraph:

Cheney said in a "Fox News" interview with Sean Hannity that he found it disturbing that Obama did not also release memos that Cheney said documented the effectiveness of the interrogations -- a point contested by some experts.

I've been threatening to do this for years, and finally got around to it. Thanks to the expanded playlist on myspace, I've created a page for les plymouths and have managed to post 5/7ths of the record, "cruz is the lilac." I was going to wait until I scanned some old photos, but then thought...fuck it.

With all of this apocalyptic talk from the wingnuts of America, old white dudes flying their flags upside down, carrying pitchforks and such, I am reminded of what Molly Ivins said (RIP) a number of years ago about Pat Buchanan and his "culture wars" crap: "That speech was probably better in the original German."
