I hope there aren't any neurons in there

My head is dripping like a leaky faucet. It turns out that even avoiding most human contact cannot prevent the transmission of viruses. My mom caught a cold from Maddie and now it seems that I've got it. Ever since last night my nose has been leaking nonstop and there's been a lot of sneezing and congestion. All in all, it's not that bad I guess. At least there's no coughing and my throat feels fine. It has added to making my insomnia more pronounced though. I've only been able to sleep a couple hours at a time and that makes me grumpy. As I've said before, it's like being forced to move through an eternal twilight of suck.

The government you deserve

I fucking hate liberals. I hate their divide and conquer race baiting and I hate their incitement to class warfare. It's not only cynical but I think it's just plain evil to boot. This is not to say that republicans have been innocent in the past of similar tactics, but nowadays it's clear that stupidity populism is mostly a liberal cause celeb. Just look at the spazzing we've seen over the past few days as one hippie asshole after another lines up to attack the AIG bonuses, trying to fan the flames of class warfare for all they're worth. Now, I read that the assholes in congress are actually trying to pass a law establishing a 90% tax on those bonuses just so they can take the money back from those individuals. It's fucked up and few people seem willing to stand up and say so. Sure, all the envious morons out there are all gungho for such a tax now, but what's to stop the government from targeting other individuals once something like this becomes precedent. What's to stop them from targeting you or your family next? No one likes the fact that some of those AIG bigwigs got bonuses, but it was part of their fucking contract. You can't just reneg on this shit. When you go to work for a company, you and they come to an agreement on what your compensation should be. If the company doesn't like your work they can and should fire your ass. They cannot decide after the fact that you don't get the money for work already completed. It's bullshit.

Instead of realizing this, people are more than willing to engage in class warfare hurling vitriol at the 'rich'. What they never realize is that everyone is rich to someone else. What do you think is going to happen when some hippie asshole thinks he can get a few more votes by going lower down the ladder and whipping those people against you. You envy and hate the fact that some executives live in million dollar homes? There are even more people out there who will be happy to line up and throw bile at you for simply owning a home in the first place when they don't.

Sometimes it's just the little things

I got a package in the mail from chelledg today and it gave me a dose of the happies. She had read my entry where I was all nostalgic about original flavored bubblegum and she sent me 3 boxes of old school Double Bubble.



It's been years since I've seen any double bubble and I was happy to see that it still tastes much as I remember. It also has those little comic strips with each piece of gum. I can't say that the jokes are funny exactly but it does make you think of your childhood. It just seems like it was all from a simpler time. Sometimes we just need a reminder that it's the small things that matter.

Thanks Chelle.
