Change huh?

Really? Well Prez. Barry laid out his $3.55 trillion budget...Awesome. How are we going to pay for this Barry? Oh taxing the top 2% right? Hmmm, seems like someone has forgotten to use basic mathematics.

Check "this." At least someone has done some calculations.

That's right sheeple, even if Barry took every last dime the top 2% make, it still won't pay for his spending programs... Where's the rest going to come from? Hi middle class! Remember the group that wasn't going to pay "one cent" more in taxes?? Barry basically is saying, (in his best Dark Helmet voice) "FOOLED YOU!" My favorite part, the "evil" wealthiest 2% pay 62% of the country's tax burden, and the top 1% pay 40%. Let's tax them more though...I know, it's just so unfair now. Isn't that right Barry? Please... If you can't see that this is nothing more than the fomenting of class warfare by this administration in an attempt to secure a voting majority, you're either blinded by stupidity, a self-indulgent idealogue, or perhaps both. Logic, fairness, justice, and fiscal sanity have waved bye bye to this group quite some time ago. This is what happens when the herd follows a wolf in sheep's clothing...Congrats America, you earned it!

What a way to ruin Mardi Gras... having the President speak. I decided to go out, and then read the transcript later. Boy oh boy is he trying to sell this "stimulus" law. Wonder why? Couldn't be the drop in approval rating, or the fact that the public in general isn't too thrilled with this plan, could it? Someone should have told the President that it would be a good idea to get the facts straight before opening his mouth. But then that's not a charlatan's way... My favorite? "And I believe the nation that invented the automobile cannot walk away from it." Well Barry, America has indeed been the birthplace of many phenomenal things. However, the automobile is not one of them. Karl Benz (yes that Benz, of Daimler-Benz, better known to Americans as Mercedes-Benz) invented the first 'true' automobile in 1885-6. W-o-w and everyone thought the last Prez. was a litle slow...

Oscar disappointment....

I am an avid film watcher. In fact, part of this post is to announce I am conducting a major research project...I am attempting to catalogue all of the movies I have ever watched. I expect that it is well over 1,000, so stay tuned for details. That aside, I usually enjoy watching the Academy Awards. However, this year was a down year in terms of the films that were nominated (my pick would've been Gran Torino, but alas, good ol' Clint has had a hell of a run in the past few years). Two things in particular irked me tonight. Thing one, I understand that Meryl Streep is a great actress, I get that she has 15 nominations, but greatest living actress?? Perhaps a bit much. Did everyone forget Dame Judi Dench? For my money, I also believe Cate Blanchett to be a better actress, and think Kate Winslett is on par with Streep, if not already a bit above her. Thing two, can someone please tell me why the hell that "P.o.S. walking" Sean Penn can't for the life of him ever summon any dignity? Hey Sean, get on stage thank the Academy for your ACTING award, and get the hell off. Wrong place for your self-indulgent, soapbox diatribe about the liberal topic du jour. In fact, no place is ever right I think for the pseudo-"love toward fellow man" crap that falls out of your mouth. I guess that doesn't apply to wives, photographers, and well anyone else that you dislike right? Speaking of which, way to thank your wife, Robin Wright and the kids, class, class, class pal...

Meet my Swedish lady!

I recently have acquired a new Swedish lady in my life...As many of you may know, I have an enduring love affair with automobiles. Mine are always female and all have had names derived from their countries of origin. (I need help, I know) Recently, I've been enjoying a Swedish auto. That said, my three year term with my Volvo, Elsa, has ended.

She was a wonderful lady, and was a joy to drive. However, realizing that my career has me on the road quite a bit more these days, I knew I had to purchase instead of lease. My experience with Elsa, has had quite an effect on me to the point where I've grown to love Swedish cars. Therefore, I decided to stick wth the Scandinavian ladies for a while, and so I introduce, Trina!*

Now this is not my exact auto, but it is the same model, and color. Yes, she has LED eyebrow headlights, and yes, she is a raven colored SAAB, and yes I'm thrilled with her. She came in Saturday off a truck from Florida and we've spent the long weekend bonding. Further reports to follow!

*It's stil very early to have chosen a name for her, but Trina was the Swedish name that immediately came to mind. We may need to spend more time together, but I think that moniker will hold. (Again, I need help, I know)

May have done a spit-take...

I like watching stand-up routines... One of my favorites is Lisa Lampanelli. I love her attitude, she performs the way she wants, mercilessly, and everyone cracks up. Her act, to me, is very reminiscent of Don Rickles, though obviously updated for the new century. I just saw her special on HBO the other day, I nearly spit my beer out. Fantastic! Oh a word of warning, if you have a politically correct stick up your ass, don't watch this, it'll only lead you to want to start some silly, Pelosi* protest.

*I have decided to replace the word bull$h!t with Pelosi. More on this in a future post.
