Wednesday

You’d think the citizens of our country would have bigger things to worry about than being offended by the cover of Time Magazine. How about a national debt of $9.2 trillion? Or how about the 46.9 million Americans without health insurance? And what about the 7.7 million unemployed (that’s 5%!) Americans?

Instead, some veterans and veterans groups are spending their free time being offended over this month’s Time cover. How about this, fellas: Spend your time serving the maimed coming back from Afghanistan and let it fucking go. There really are better things to worry about than a God damned magazine cover.

Dumbass
I was sitting at a light, waiting to turn left yesterday morning, when an ambulance happened by. It had its lights and si-reen on – and was fixin’ to pass me on the right. Then my turn light turned green. Almost immediately, the idiot behind me honked his horn at me. Without hesitation, I flipped him off. When the ambulance slowly passed me on the right, I made my best Vanna White hand gesture and shook my head to demonstrate to señor moron why I hadn’t moved.

Fight, Fight!
There’s another teenage fight video making its rounds of mainstream media. Am I the only one who wants to beat the shit out of the people making the decisions to air these videos? The other day a CNN reporter actually prefaced a fight video by saying something like, “authorities believe these are copycat videos.” Is there any common sense any more?

I spent three weeks in Honduras without TV and sporadic internet service. Ignorance is bliss, I don't have to get worked up over shit I can't do anything about. ;)

I was also on foot in Honduras so I didn't have to worry bout dumb fuck drivers. ;)

You need to get the passport thing worked out to take a break from the good ol' US of A ;)

Love ya!!!

What's there to be offended at?

Nay: You guys are living the good life. I envy the three of you, and my wayward cousin in Brazil! The Warden would never move down there, or I'd seriously consider moving elsewhere! I think my passport lawyer died. He's not answering emails when once he was really good at it. I need to email his wife now.

Woozie: There ain't much, but you can bet there's some think tank somewhere seeking out things for varioius peoples and groups to be offended by.

This puts " but mom they're going to kick my ass" in a whole different light. Too bad...
