I'm Mad - Open Thread

As expected, the chimp in chief vetoed the SCHIP bill. How delightful. Hope he sleeps well at night.

I ate lunch at Chili's today. My waiter was an ex-Marine in Iraq. He was wounded in the knee. He's waiting for his 6th surgery. I wanted him to sit down so that I could wait on him. I left him a big tip instead. I wonder how many wounded Blackwater guys are limping around Chili's while they wait for surgery? I wonder how many of them have to wait for surgery?

I'm just mad.

What about you?

Chili's doesn't rock hard enough for Blackwater to limp there

They're limping at sports bars and strip clubs and gun club meetings.

Do vampires sleep at night?

he's a non-person and has no conscience, bet he sleeps like a-rock.....

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

He's a person

but he has no conscience. I hope he never sleeps again.

OLF Meetings

OUTLYING LANDING FIELD STUDY GROUP SETS DATES FOR THREE MEETINGS

RALEIGH – The Outlying Landing Field Study Group today announced the dates of its next three meetings.

The group will meet:

Thursday, October 4 at 10:00 a.m. in Raleigh to take comments on new sites from state and federal agencies and hear from statewide organizations. The meeting is in the ABC Commission Room of the Administration Building, 116 W. Jones St., Raleigh.

Tuesday, October 23 for a public hearing in northeastern North Carolina. The time and location will be announced later.

Tuesday, November 1 at 10:00 a.m. in Raleigh to discuss the economic impact of an OLF. The meeting will be in the ABC Commission Room of the Administration Building, 116 W. Jones St., Raleigh.

Too bad they're not meeting to ask the Navy to clarify its so-called need for an OLF in the first place. This deck is already stacked.

I just want to know

why GWB hates American children. He loves his pet war more than he has compassion for poor, American children. (Or adults, for that matter...)

Because he's a sick bastard, that's why.

He's never had to worry about "putting food on his family", let alone taking care of them when they are sick, without having the money to do it. His empathy quotient is ZERO.

I find that this is all making me regress to my immediately post-college days of anger and rebellion - and I'm nearly 50! I dyed half my hair purple last night. Seriously. (It's awesome.) I'm getting a new tattoo this weekend.

Why do I feel the need to do this when I'm pissed at the government?

I bought it at Sally's Beauty Supply

But you can get it at any beauty supply store. My hair is so dark that I have to bleach it first for the color to show. If I remember from your Miss Maddie days, your hair is not as dark as mine - but if you want vibrant color, you need to bleach it.

I'm not finished with mine. When I am, I will post a picture. Then you can all see how I'm losing my mind along with my hair color.

Don't know why, DQ - but that fits. :)

No more "nice" Mr. Compassionate Conservative

for you America. He's only got another 15.5 months to wreak his havoc, spread his (Dick's) ideaology, score points with the corporate fascists. Heck, remember he might need a job in a couple years.
You really should take it easy on poor W.. He's probably extremely constipated - tough taking a dump with Dick or Karl's arm up your butt for 7 or 8 years..

Person County Democrats

I actively oppose gerrymandering. Do you?

i stand by my proposal...

...that members of congress and their families, from now on, get exactly the same health care as the troops-in the same facilities.

i suspect it this idea were adopted, that marine's life would improve.

And he wouldn't be waiting tables

----waiting tables! While he waited for his 6th knee surgery. I left the biggest tip of my life.

I'm still so mad.

this would be a perfect proposal...

...for a candidate looking to challenge an incumbent...

here's the original post.

think jones would take the challenge?
i doubt it.

Nice

Except the tune, While beautiful, Rondo Alla Turca will get stuck in your head. My son has this toy/activity box that plays it. It lodges itself in your mind and will not leave.

There are worse song viruses to have.

I understand that humming "The Girl from Impanema" gets rid of any song virus.

your comment about...

...astrud gilberto's most popular song is correct, with a caveat:

humming the stan getz solo can, if you're too enthusiastic about it, cause an injury similar to that experienced by the woman in the "hair flipping contest" commercial.

it's fum to play, but play safe, kids...
