This is a collection of my thoughts. Some of the thoughts that I once had, I no longer do. Some thoughts I have now I have never had. Yet none shal be discounted. This blog is soley for the enjoyment of the author and the readers. On occasion the views expressed are overly exagerated in order to prove a point. Also there may be a dirty word or thought in some of the posts. Grow up and take this for what it's worth - a blog that barely anyone will ever see.


AAAARRRRGGG! I'm FED UP!!! (No relation to K-Fed... or FedEx as he is currently known.)

Today I watched "The Colbert Report." It is my only source for non-biased satirical Republican news. I highly recommend it.
Today he had on the director of a new movie coming out tomorrow called "Fast Food Nation." Let me give you a brief synopsis of this guy's stance - the fast food industry gives a product. This product is not good for you in mass quanities. (Heck, it's not good for you at all.) Some Americans consume this food in mass quanities. The fast food industry turns a profit on these purchases. Americans become fat and sick. The fast food industry should pay these Americans for their suffering.
What crap. Just because some dumbass slides a burger down his throat each day because it's readily available does not mean that the fast food industry should pay to have it sucked out of him. We do enough rewarding of stupidity in this nation. (Look at the last election)
Speaking of the last election, congrats, Democrats. You are in control. The fate of this nation is in your hands - don't blow it.
There are several issues on the table. They have been there for months. Years, in some cases - what are you going to do about it? I'm sick of hearing about illegal immigration. Come to a solution. Deport them all. Make them all citizens. Make some citizens, deport the rest. SOMETHING! Enough with renewable fuels. Form a committee to come up with the best road to take (Biodiesel, ethanol, hydrogen, etc.) and go with it. Create funding for a national infistructure and have deadlines and goals that will take this country off it's dependence upon fossil fuels. Gay men and women still want to get married. Decide if we want to let them or not. If we don't, they'll be upset. If we do, our health care coverage goes up. The war in Iraq is still going on. If you wish to cut and run, it is now on your watch. When that country becomes a hell-hole again and is run by people just as bad or worse than those we took out of power - it is on you this time. And all the lives lost over there will be in vain - YOURS.
I am sick of all this discussion of the issues until we get so immune to their true value. Discuss them intelligently. Come to a conclusion and DO IT! Not in the future. NOW. And don't blame those across the aisle for messing things up. Apparently the Republicans couldn't do anything right, so now it is your turn to prove us wrong.
Oh, and Trent Lot as "Minority Whip?!" Republicans - couldn't you have thought this through a bit more? Do you realize the comedic value in this? The late-night talk shows are having a field day with this one. Idiots!
It is getting to the point that I am losing interest in all of politics. It is all talk and no solution. Take a cue from Elvis - A little less conversation and a little more action. From now on, how about this method:

1) Identify the problem. (We already have this one down.)
2) Intelligently discuss some possible solutions. (We start well on this one, and then we begin the name-calling like 5-year-olds.)
3) Settle on a solution and go with it.
4) Make changes to the solution, if necessary to better the outcome.
5) Maintain the outcome.

Seems simple enough, doesn't it? Then why the crap can't we get ANYTHING done in this country? Our policies are pretty much the same today as they were last year - five years ago, heck a decade ago. With each month, our government should be renewing itself to better serve the people. Instead, we continue to drag our feet until it's too late or we have given up interest. Something needs to be done and it needs to be done YESTERDAY!

Oh, and ACLU and similar organizations - YOU AREN'T HELPING!
