I'VE GOTTEN A LOT OF EMAILS ABOUT KENTUCKY SECEDING FROM THE UNION There are several states who have secession petitions going around the internet, and Kentucky is one of them. Although this appeals to the rabblerouser in me, the chance of this becoming reality is utterly remote. I'll tell you why today.
IF YOU GET AN EMAIL FORWARD It is not your responsibility to forward it to everyone you know. Especially if it pertains to something completely over (Occupy Wall Street), warns of imminent death if you don't forward it (I am still here) or has been forwarded so many times it takes 20 clicks to open the stupid email. Today we will create some ground rules for internet forwards. You're welcome.
EREBODY IS WORRIED ABOUT BEING GREECE Do you even know why? I wasn't sure, so I did some research this weekend. When you hear about Greek pensions, it will remind you of somewhere else coughKentuckycough. It's frightening how irresponsible we have been in this state to cowtow to public sector workers.
HAVE THEY NEVER HEARD OF DIGITAL CAMERAS? I think these stories may go the way of the dodo bird as even idiots like these will figure out a way to use a digital camera and not take the film with photos of their toddlers with joints hanging out of their mouths to the photomat. These children should be removed from the home permanently because these two women are simply too dumb to raise them.
IN A MANNER REMINISCIENT OF JENGHIS KHAN John Kerry is a terrible pick for Secretary of Defense. Absolutely awful. He came home from Vietnam and threw his fellow soldiers under the bus in front of Congress and now PrezBO is going to put him in charge of the Defense Department? What, Cindy Sheehan wasn't available. I could actually see John Kerry as Sec of State, but Defense? No way.
I'M SURE THEY ARE SUPPORTIVE OF LENTEN FRIDAYS The LA City Council passed a resolution asking residents to go meatless on Mondays. They shouldn't worry, with the new tax hikes put in place, no one can afford meat anyway.
