and a nickname is born:

My twin brother is calling the hookers for hookups defense procurement scandal…. Fornigate!!

If you need me on May 1st-

Don’t call my office. Pro-immigration activists say a national boycott and marches planned for May 1 will flood U.S. streets with millions of Latinos to demand amnesty for illegal immigrants and shake the ground under Congress as it debates reform. Such a massive turnout could make for the largest protests since the civil rights era […]

I am going to go and dig up the garden…

Because, clearly I have planted way too early. It’s starting to look A LOT like Christmas: This just in: Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, a former Republican Party chairman, arranged the startup financing for a GOP telemarketing company implicated in two criminal cases involving election dirty tricks. . . . Barbour’s investment company arranged a quarter-million […]

From your lips to god’s ears….

Bored with everything but the garden

Sorry, everyone, but I am really channeling all of my energy into growing stuff. The President seems to have found himself a bobsled team to Hell without any help from me, so I am out in the yard getting sunburned. Yesterday I spent an inordinate about of time cleaning and reassembling the carburetor on my […]

Are people really this stupid?

Someone put a freakin’ TV in the breakroom here at work. Since I don’t spend much time in there except to buy Nekots or peanuts from the vending machine, then it hasn’t really affected my life all that much. I don’t have a TV at home, so I am hardly EVER exposed to commercials. Today, […]
