I started this post what seems like forever ago, then proceeded to get sick with a one-two body slam of bronchitis and a sinus infection. Over 2 weeks of antibiotics later and some much needed bedrest, im back to about 70%. I’ll get up to speed on whatever, but until then enjoy this post about nothing in particular.
How about being a new dad, and being able to stay home 2 months with pay (ableit reduced from my normal amount.) Kinda nice that these here socialists not only say they support young families and parents, they put up where other countries shut up. Hell, just read the article:
177 nations guarantee paid leave for new mothers; the U.S. does not.
74 nations guarantee paid leave for new fathers; the U.S. does not.
132 nations guarantee breastfeeding breaks at work; the U.S. does not.
163 nations guarantee paid sick leave; the U.S. does not.
48 nations guarantee paid time off to care for children’s health; the U.S. does not.
Speaking of pay toilets, you know how they all say ‘For Customers Only’? Well, here in socialist-i-stan that’s illegal. Yup. They can really try to make you uncomfortable, but legally they can’t stop you from going, “That Chipotle shit is making my anus bleed, can I use your shitter?” Just get in, use it, say thanks and leave. No hassle, no skidmarks like you locked up an 18-wheeler back there.
Ok, that’s just thing Im thankful for. Let me give you a few more: Irony – She doesn’t get it.
Bitch is cra-zee.
The comments are always the best part…
Pat Robertson, I cannot believe I heard these words come out of your mouth. You are a traitor to God! This is awful.
I can’t believe you guys think it should be legal to smoke pot! Don’t you understand that dope is illegal for a reason? Pot will make you do bad things and then it will lead to other things like coke and meth. We all need to give up our liberty to choose what we put in our body so that gov’t can keep us safe and productive becuase the state knows what’s best for people. Don’t let these other people fool you……. we need to keep putting these dang kids and drug users in prisons so we can make sure no one uses marijuana.
And in other ‘tree’ related news:
Potential jurors staged a “mutiny” during a felony drug case, a Missoula County prosecutor says, and authorities worry the result will be viewed as a game-changer when it comes to future attempts at prosecuting drug cases in Montana.
Nearly all 27 Missoula County residents during the jury selection process on Thursday told District Court Judge Dusty Deschamps there was no way they would convict anybody of having a couple of buds of marijuana.
Good for them. Guy sounds like a douche, but my thoughts on the war on drugs are… it’s a waste of time and money. Has been since Bush I started the whole nonsense. Decriminalize the soft stuff. Hell, if you regulate it like booze and tobacco, you’d get enough revenue to do a ton of stuff. Shit would be safer, too. Hard stuff? Well, that’s tricker. Seems like anything you ban, makes it more popular. Just ask bikers in the Diablo-Mt Tam-Marin area. Fucking Sierra Club hippies ruining everything, then we are called poachers, criminals, vandals and worse.
I’m also thankful for my mom. I don’t tell her enough, but that’s a whole ‘nother enchilada. I’m thankful she worked in a library and instilled a respect for books, knowledge and a passion for reading. I also don’t read enough. Probably because fatuous nonsense like ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ and ‘Harry Potter and the Shit-Encrusted Dildo’ do nothing for me. I read shit like this:
4. General relativity
If most people think of general relativity at all, they assume this high-minded idea of Einstein’s applies only to super-large objects completely outside the realm of normal life, such as galaxies and black holes.
But actually, the warping of space-time does affect things we know and use, the authors point out.
“If general relativity were not taken into account in GPS satellite navigation systems, errors in global positions would accumulate at a rate of about ten kilometers each day,” the book states. That’s because general relativity describes how time flows slower the closer an object is to a large mass. Thus, depending on satellites’ distances from Earth, their onboard clocks will run at slightly different speeds, which could offset position calculations unless this effect is taken into account.”
Fuckin’ Stephen Hawking. Been more places in his own head that I could ever imagine on my fully-functioning legs. So smart it makes my head hurt. That’s why I read. Can’t let Idiocracy take over.by
