You Can't Do That

I'm not sure, but I think President Obama has left the O.C.
I'm pleased that he had a safe and (hopefully) pleasant trip. I was concerned that some idiot racist might have tried something stupid.
Despite this being the 21st century, there are still people out there who think a black man shouldn't be president.
There's a word for people like that. That word is "fool".
Yesterday, I was going to go to Fry's and get some new memory for the computer. This will be the last hardware update I perform until I completely re-do the guts of it. That will most likely be a couple of years from now.
So I drove down to Fry's. I double-checked the ad and found I'd made a serious miscalculation. What I thought was a good price (one DDR2 memory card for $20) turned out to be the price after mail-in rebate ($40 each was the in-store price).
This sale was going to end that day. My tax refund was scheduled to arrive today (Friday), and I just couldn't afford to pay $80 and hope my rebate got processed in a timely manner.
So instead I picked up two DVDs of Shaun the Sheep.
On my way to Fry's, one of my ex-wife's favorite songs came on the radio. This got me to thinking about some other songs she liked, and how I might react to them if I heard them again.
I moved out almost three years ago, and have been officially divorced for two years. I know that, sometimes, something will trigger in my brain and memories will come back...and some may be painful.
In this case, it was a song I liked, so I enjoyed the tune.
Got a call from Bob Chance's son - Bob is going back into the hospital again next week. The plan is to do some bypass surgery on his leg to help restore circulation.
He should be walking again in about ten days or so.
Oh, and still no word about the band starting up again.
ccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccc cccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccc cccccccccccccc
Translation: Solange says "hello".
The US House of Representatives voted in a 90% tax on the bonus money paid to folks at AIG.
Now, I'm not a lawyer or expert on the Constitution, but there's this one clause in the Constitution that should come into play:
"No bill of Attainder or ex post facto law shall be passed."
Seems pretty clear-cut to me.
And there's your title link.
I don't even want to think about how much crap this child will have to put up with throughout his life...all because of his geeky parents.
Okay. Since I have tax money, I have some shopping to do...including some drum gear. Hey, just because we aren't playing right now doesn't mean I don't need stuff.
Have a good weekend.
Be seeing you.
