At some point when I wasn’t looking this blog passed it’s 100,000 mark, which isn’t nothin’ to folks like over at Soylent or Asshats, but I’m not unhappy about it.  If I had to make a wild guess it was Aggie who crossed the line.

Moving on… Obama says we’re going to get our health care bill (not vote, not pass… it’ll just arrive somehow) and then they’ll post the information so we can all know what is in i t.

For the millionth time:  I don’t feel comfortable buying a house that I’ve never seen.  I don’t buy cars that I’ve never seen.  I don’t even buy a friggin’ t-shirt that I’ve never seen yet the tyrants in Congress made up mostly by the Democratic Party are going to see to it that I do.  And this will cost oh-so-much more than a t-shirt.  Why should I quietly sit back and let Congress vote in a health care bill that they won’t tell me about, and indeed we have no way of knowing what is in it, much less whether the House and Senate versions match word-for-word?

Mr. Obama’s response [to Brett Baier’s question]: “By the time the vote has taken place, not only will I know what’s in it, you’ll know what’s in it, because it’s going to be posted and everybody’s going to be able to evaluate it on the merits.”

Except it’s not going to be voted on… it’ll be “deemed and passed”.

Rep. Louise M. Slaughter, New York Democrat, defends tying the health care bills together. “There’s no way in the world we’d do anything unconstitutional,” she said. (Associated Press)

I’m mortally insulted that she feels I’m stupid enough to take her word (and ANY politician’s word) at that.


Steampunk Corset – simple idea, right?  That’s about all it is.

I don't like it. I need to start over on the darkness of the lines and the background.

But I had another idea for a Steampunk poster.  A many barrelled blunderbuss type gun called The Mimesweeper, featuring subsonic loads to silently take mimes out.  You can’t even hear them scream.  And the poster should have this faded image of a mime with his eyes wide open in utter terror just for that little something.  And then at the bottom, the gun mfr offers upgrades for every ten mime scalps you bring in.

I’d buy one.


The doc’s PA agrees, the sudden dramatic spike in pain is the nerves going nuts just before they die.  Too badk I’m sticking to this week to wean off the meds.  I’m way too tired of being doped up.  Grinding my teeth down at the moment but another two days of this, three tops, and I should be out of it.  Yahoo.
