Cold Saturday Night

SwampMan and I huddled under blankets in our comfy chairs and watched Dr. Who and then my favorite movie, The Outlaw Josey Wales, while he read about building electric bicyles and I read Biker Billy’s Roadhouse Cookbook and Super Freakonomics. I read earlier criticism of Dr. Who at a couple of U.K. sites which said that only Geeks like it (Dr. Who).

Guess that means we’re geeks.

I’m good with that.

Guess this is us!

Woohooo! I Get to Pay Higher Taxes For My Non-Representation in the Congress and Senate

I’m not sure why I’m even bothering. I was making $600 a year less than last year in the same job because insurance costs rose and now, I’ll get a lot more taxes taken out, too.

Why, oh why did I get that college education instead of going into prostitution?

The underground economy is really the place to go.

Obama Blames Al-Qaeda

Per the BBC:

US President Barack Obama has for the first time publicly accused an offshoot of al-Qaeda over the alleged Christmas Day bomb plot to blow up a US plane.

Goodness, whatever could have been his first clue? The guy claiming to be working on behalf of al-Qaeda? Al-Qaeda taking responsibility for the attempt? Obama seems to be the last to have known who was responsible. Oh, yeah, al-Qaeda knows that there’s a new man in the Whitehouse who most definitely is NOT a cowboy.

THAT is how you deal with terrorists. You don’t give ’em lawyers and skin grafts.
