Thank God

Ever hear this at a ball game? "I thank God for our win today, without him, it wouldn't be possible." Do they really think God was helping out? I mean, is this like Angels in the Outfield where a bunch of angels got nothing better to do than help a sorry-ass team to cheat in order to win? What is God more worried about, a fleeting little sports event that doesn't even show up as a stat on the books OR your eternal soul? HMM. lol And you never hear this "You know, I was playing flawlessly, in top form in our game today. My teammates where playing at their peaks as well. We lost cuz God wasn't holding up his end." LOL

I just wrote this on another blog's comments cuz I found the guy had pet perves about most of the words and phrases. I thought it was pretty funny by its own right so I'm adding it here. I even added another couple of words to top it off: BTW, aks my friend about this and she's all "it should count ekspecially in Washington D.C." :Supposably it does," I told her. She looked acrosst at me and asked "What about libarys in nuculur power plants?" "As long as you warsh up afterwards, it should be ok," I replied. She was like all discussed or something and hopped into her jagwire or "jag-YOO-ar" to sound fancy and took off to get some expresso. Irregardless, I think she was wrong, but hey, same difference, right?

Trouble with New York Yankees and the lack of some sort of salary cap...

Basically, because the New York Yankees are so heavily funded, they pretty much just buy any great players on opposing teams to keep their stock of great players full and to deplete other teams of those players, thus turning the entire American League into a farm league for their one team. It is hurting baseball. The profit sharing now in effect will help, but it is not the full solution. Players need to be paid based on first senority, then skill as base salary, then paid bonuses based on their actual performance. Free agency would need some adjustments with this sort of system, but it would increase team loyality and allow more teams to benefit from the great players they nuture. blah blah. ok, I'm done ranting about this, prolly forever.

Trouble with "Under God" - "In God We Trust"

Well, I believe in god, but I don't believe it has any place in government. Just look at the Middleeast now, and also to the Dark Ages in Europe. Using god to govern leads to oppression cuz it always comes down to a human's individual superstitions being enforced by force over another's views. We have no right to enforce our beliefs on anyone, atheists included, regardless of how small the act is. It’s not even historically part of our heritage to use terms referring to god on money or in the pledge. It is an abomination added by a select few in the 1950's, who's posterity now pretend its been there all along. Those people who don't believe in the god mentioned in the pledge know who they are (atheists or people of non-christian religions), and they know it isn't inclusive of their beliefs. This is the problem with using the god terms in government.

Trouble with ...oh hell with it

Been pretty busy this week with work in the day and hanging out with friends on various nights. However, I am keeping an eye on the war too. It almost seems like a Wag the Dog meets Monty Python with a flavour of Saturday Night Live. I recommend watching Wag the Dog if you haven't seen it already. It was meant as a critism of Clinton, but it seems even more appropriately applied to Bush II. Monty Python bits would be Saddam himself, with the goofy coke bottle glasses and his opening "graphics" which look like he ripped off directly from the Monty Python show. The Saturday Night Live part is because it looks as though its all supposed to be funny, but ends up being very boring and putting everyone to sleep.

Oh, on to what I've been up to. Having fun. Last night hung out with my friends in downtown Campbell. Turned about to be more fun than I thought, but not cause we were, but cuz we just had a fun time hanging out.

Right now, I'm at a place called "Netopolis" for online gaming. I don't have a working computer at my place anymore, so I do it here or use my work computer off hours at work. It's actually pretty liberating. Instead of spending all my time online, I do random stuff like head out of town on a whim, or take care of business that I'd never bother with. Even though I pay for my time, it's still cheaper than having my own broadband access and computer (like $20 a month verses maybe $60 for computer payments plus $40 for highspeed internet.

Have fun!

Time to start backing down from spending

I think I've been singlehandedly supporting the U.S. economy in the past few months. LOL Well, time to start saving and looking into investments. Gots some ideas, but I'm not telling. :)

A friend's opinion

What do you think about the war?
"Saddam needs to be killed, but I don't agree with Bush's airheaded method. That's what you get when you have a hotheaded cowboy as Pres."

Breaking News from the Living Room

Miriam feels like Taco Bell Nachos. She's patting me on the shoulder telling me all about it. Now her head is on my shoulder...rubbing me for some reason. Turtle face now. ok now...the "other" Miriam face. Is this hell? "Shut the fuck up" she says....now she's taking about Taco Bell again. Now she's poking me in the side with her toes. "Why are you ignoring me?" Ok...that's the latest.

The trouble with war

This war is intended to make money. Not just from oil, but in the "nation building" to follow. It's good that the USA is finally making a stand to remove Saddam from power in Iraq. It's better that this happen now, and not another 12 years from now. It shudda happened 12 years ago. But now isn't the best time either. The timing is very suspicious. A couple of years from now, when the War on Terrorism is an historical point would have been a better time.

That is all.

30 on 03-03-03

I turned 30 on 03-03-03. Well, that's the weirdest part of turning 30. Other than that...no big. Spending the week just hanging out with friends. Going out, or staying it, it's all good. Still working. Once day I will be able to retire earlier. That's been on my mind for a long time...not just cuz I'm 30 now.
