A Whiter Shade Of Pale

Back again. We did the upgrade on the bill acceptors so they'd take the new five dollar bills, and this required me to drive into LA during rush hour. Whee.

But it's done. Now we don't have to exchange the new bills for old just so a customer can buy tokens.


Here's another one of those stories that you just can't believe would actually happen. But it did.

And the mother didn't do fuck-all to stop it, either.

Why is it some people who deserve to raise kids can't, and the ones who SHOULDN'T raise kids do?


Michele Obama was at a speaking engagement. The event coordinators handpicked the students who would sit behind Mrs. Obama. They were heard saying "we need more white people".

"Transcend race" my pale white ass.


Folks are just now realizing that Hillary is untrustworthy.

Why did it take this long?


Ooo - global warming will raise the price of beer!

No it won't - it'll be from using all the farmland to grow corn to make into ethanol (for the subsidies, of course). ALL food prices will go up from that...but global warming will be blamed so THOSE subsides (i.e., grants) will keep coming.

"My country, 'tis of thee...sweet land of subsidy..."


Your house is in foreclosure. You decide "revenge" is appropriate. So you trash the home before you leave.

And these are the people who will be bailed out by our tax dollars.


Okay, enough. Brin has a movie she wants me to see.

And then, the new South Park.

But if you have time, pop over to her entry for today if you haven't already.

Thank you.

Be seeing you.

Perhaps if the media and punditry weren't so in love with the 'inevitable' story they pushed for the better part of a year, they'd have paid attention to the facts. Then again, maybe not.
