Well, I'm in Texas. I know...say it ain't so.
I've been here for about 34 hrs and it feels like I am in another land. Not only is the topography very different, but there is just a pervasive sense of all things meaty and Republican.
I'm here to train on new software for our office. Me and a company full of good ole white boys, halls filled with animal skins, and cubicles adorned with crosses and state flags.
It's just bizarre.
I vowed to be a good girl and keep my mouth shut regarding politics or anything else that could get me hung from the nearest billboard advertising "Free 72 oz Steak if eaten in 1 hour".
After training for about an hour this morning, one of the guys I am working with made some statement regarding Bush---clearly fishing for my political leanings. I let it go and responded very down the middle. A few minutes later, the same guy offered me a "free screen saver with every training"----a big Texas flag. I declined politely stating that I have a state flag of my own. This doofus then said "Oh yeah you've got Jeb down there so you are doing okay"
I just couldn't hold it in any longer. "I may live in Florida, but I did NOT vote for Jeb."
This is when it dawned on me that the people here are completely clueless. They figure if you have your very own Bush then you must be just as happy as they are. Jokes were being made regarding dead Democrats and illegal voting and I managed to refrain from reminding them of the FACT that their illustrious party disenfranchised black voters in Florida. I'm afraid that would have been met with the sound of crickets chirping. Clueless.
Day 3 begins tomorrow. Sigh.

So...according to the religious right conservative cluster, (which by the way they are neither religious, right or conservative) Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans because the annual Southern Decadence Festival was due to take place that weekend.
Considering that line of thinking, don't you think there should be a storm brewing in the Gulf during the last two weeks? This looks pretty decadent to me if you think like they do.
Personally I don't care if women want to degrade themselves for cheap plastic beads, but hey---tit for tat! sorry! couldn't resist

I can't decide which is scarier, Bush actually making this decision and trying to con us into thinking he had no idea, OR the fact that additional evil faceless men are making these kinds of decisions behind our backs.

#1 Who actually thinks this is a great idea?
#2 Will America buy the shrugging, clueless, (scream the next words sarcastically loud)PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, schtick?

"heh heh...pinching Cheney's head...heh heh"
"I thought this long about obtaining a warrant for wiretapping"
"I care about Katrina victims about this much"
"Social Security is close to bankruptcy"
"No really...mine is this big..."
This is a great example of what happens when you have just spent the whole morning moving an enormous pile of dirt from one side of the lot to another, one wheelbarrel at a time, and then decide it would be a great idea to throw the ball for your ever exuberant Boxer.
This may not come down until next hurricane season!
Thanks for the help with the dirt, Bren!

Vice President Dick Cheney, while hunting wild geese in the Rose Garden, accidentally shot President Bush twice, once in the heart and once in the head. "I didn't really shoot the President twice," said Cheney. "The second time I shot him, I was president. It wasn't until my third shot, where I accidentally shot my own foot, that I had shot the president twice.
I was officially injured and unable to govern, when Dennis Hastert came in, and stepped on the butt handle of the rifle causing it to swing up like a rake and shoot his hair off. I guess I'm officially responsible for that too, meaning I shot the acting president for a total of three occupants of the oval office. I'm not proud, but it is a record."
Well, Dick Cheney can breathe a sigh of relief. President Hitler is "satisfied" with the way the big Dick handled this debacle.
According to Bush's evil puppet Scott McClellan, we (the American people) should also be satisfied now that our gutless leader has spoken on the subject. Have you thought "enough already" in the last few days?
The only person that has the right to say "enough already" is poor Harry Whittington, and then if he said it, it would only be referring to how much he is being ignored through all of this.
Poor insincere, evil, heartless, Dick Cheney. He managed to muster up a misting of tears last night while he preached to the choir at Faux News. What a joke.
Hell no, I'm not satisfied. I want to know why it took so long to report this. I want to know why the VP didn't talk to police regarding the incident until enough time had passed for his blood alcohol level to regulate. I want to know why the victim wasn't taken to a major hospital immediately so possibly the heart attack he had could have been prevented. Cheney didn't even go to the hospital after the incident. He went back to the lodge and poured himself a stiff one.
I'm asking all these questions, but I forgot...I know all the answers already. Our nation is under the control of a bunch of drunk-middle-aged-self-entitled-frat-boys. Oh yeah... silly me.
Here is a good blog post from RJ Eskow that sheds a different light on things.
Have been jotting down notes for topics, but just haven't been able to sit still long enough to write. I've now got time since my sweetie is gone for a few days. Some of you know why she is gone and I may conjure a tribute over the weekend for Mamaw Hall.
Thanks for the patience.
