I’m surprised that they didn’t just give this kid little animal the electric chair.  Zero tolerance works, people!


I did an artist’s rendition of what I thought his malicious attack would have resulted in, had they not caught him before he struck. I hear he was a member of the Tuffskins Mafia.


A Delaware first-grader who faced a lengthy punishment for bringing his favorite utensil to school — a combination folding knife, fork and spoon — has gotten a reprieve.

The school board made a hasty change to its strict code of conduct Tuesday night.

The seven-member board voted unanimously to reduce the punishment for kindergartners and first-graders who bring weapons to school or commit other violent offenses to a suspension ranging from three to five days.


Oh.  My.  God.



To get that nasty taste out of your mouth – I don’t know how I’ve missed this graphic by Weasel… it’s gorgeous, it’s bigger than life, and it is pure Obama.  Beats that damn flag to hell.  She did a color version, too!


Another barf-worthy note.  I had the first of two diagnostics today to check into a second set of RF treatments on my neck.  While I was there, I was given an informational paper that talked about Health Care Reform Bill  HR-3200.

I’ll just recount the points as they pertain to all us, and then a bit more to some of us in the the specialized area called chronic pain sufferers.

  • How you will be treated will be decided by a board appointed by the President (yay!)

  • This board is made of mostly non-physicians (I’m sure they’re smart people)

  • If you are unhappy with the treatment you will have no other option (but it will surely never come to this)

  • The government will have access to your healthcare records, tax records, and bank account (truth to tell, they already have access to my bank and tax records)

  • You will lose the freedom to choose what’s covered under your health plan.  It is not likely that “pain management” for non-cancer pain would be covered (huh?  hey wait a cotten-pickin’ minute…)

  • You will lose the freedom to choose your doctor

  • You will incur longer wait times to see your doctor

If you’re like me, items 1, 3, 5, 6, & 7 … well, damn!  Longer wait times?  If you are in severe pain, time freaking stops.  Five minutes is forever.

If you don’t like the treatment you’ll have no other option???  Look how long it has taken to find someone that has listened and took what I was telling them before deciding what to do about my neck!

And a bunch of yahoos picked by the President of the Czars ™ are going to know jack squat about the best way to help me?


Who knew that Bernie “Maddog” Madoff had it in him?  He won a prison scuffle.

Rumor has it that he’s running a cigarette investment business and so far his clients have been fabulously happy with their returns, allowing him to have all the nicest things like top-notch strained Pruno and a pillow without teeth-marks.


Gawrsh, I sure didn’t see this coming… (scratches head and ‘nads simultaneously)

If I had to bet, the rest of the world outside of Europe would go for the Yen first, since Japan isn’t populated by a huge number of assholes.

Printing up new money is never a good way to solve problems caused by infantile fiscal irresponsibility.

Not going to post anything else today as I don’t want to detract from the meaning of today.

Words aren’t really adequate, but…

Thanks to all you men and women who have served or are serving. Without you we would not have what we have today.

God Bless you all!

I will add this because it is appropriate to thank Vets for giving us a country where we can do amazing things.
