Michigan and Florida… SHOVE IT!

I was watching CNN today and they had this big long debate about what should be done about Michigan and Florida’s primaries. Ok… THEY CHOSE to have the primaries EARLY and they KNEW that the votes would NOT be included in the delegates. What’s the confusion here?

So now, there’s all this debating going on about the fact that millions of people’s voices are not being heard and outrage and how is this democracy, etc etc etc.

Ok, shall we repeat? THEY CHOSE TO HAVE THEM EARLY! They KNEW that the votes WOULD NOT BE COUNTED. They broke the rules and now they are crying FOUL? I think NOT! They want to spend MILLIONS of dollars to have a “do-over”. NO! You do not get a do-over! You fully knew what the fuck you were doing when you broke the rules.

Idiots. You do not deserve to have a do-over.

Lighters, but not Water! And NO BAIL OUT!

Ugh. This is going to be a ranting entry!

First, Hillary Clinton! It’s so annoying how now her campaign is saying “We have MOMENTUM!” You won TWO major states in one day. That is NOT momentum! You’ve lost 11 in a ROW! Wining two is not that big of a deal! Sure, good job. You won two major states in one day, but to go out and start proclaiming that you now have such great momentum. UGH! I hate this woman.

Second, I was going through security on Sunday at Hobby Airport in Houston. This guy walks up to the security guy next to me and asks. “So we can bring lighters on the plane now, right”… EXCUSE ME?! You can CARRY ON KNOWN EXPLOSIVES, but you STILL cannot bring on a sealed bottle of water! This is f’ing messed up! Great IDEA TSA! Lets allow people to carry on a flame creating device, but not WATER! I swear they hire the most retarded people they can find there. Then when you get up to the guy checking IDs there’s this HUGE blue box that looks like a high school shop student put together. The guy takes your ID and ticket and puts it into this blue box to check it… Umm? What I’m not allowed to see you verifying my name?

Third, I was watching CNN the other day and they were talking about all the different housing bail out proposals. These just really annoy me. Really. I am sorry that you and your 5 kids with no husband are being thrown out on your asses. Or that the white Newport Beach family who mortgaged their house 5 times so they could afford the Bentley and the new Mercedes for your sweet 16. But really. DO NOT USE MY TAX MONEY TO BAIL THESE PEOPLE OUT! They got themselves into this situation. Any IDIOT should have foreseen this coming. You cannot expect to live in a house by just paying interest on your mortgage. You cannot expect to get an ARM loan and NEVER have the interest rate increase. That’s the whole DEFINITION OF AN ARM LOAN! If these people weren’t smart enough to figure out that an ARM meant that there was the possibility of RAISING PAYMENTS then it’s their own fault that they can’t afford the house.

The same goes for idiots who used the equity in a house to buy material goods. You should NEVER EVER do this! Anyone with a half ounce of financial intelligence should know this. You home equity loan is a loan where if you default on payments the bank can seize your house (secured debt). If they had purchased the material goods with a credit card or other means (unsecured debt). They could default on the loans, perhaps get whatever they purchased repossessed and suffer a small setback on future credit. BUT THEY WOULD STILL HAVE THE HOUSE! Idiots.

Stolen

Over Heard In NY Stolen from Niel

(Stolen from beak, who knows where she got it from)

Things Republicans Believe: A truthful and sarcastic list

1. A president lying about an extramarital affair is an impeachable

offense. A president lying to enlist support for a war in which

thousands die is a solid defense policy

2. Government should limit itself to the powers named in the

Constitution, which include banning gay marriages and censoring the

Internet.

3. The public has a right to know about Hillary’s cattle trades, but

George Bush’s driving record is none of our business.

4. What Bill Clinton did in the 1960s and John Kerry did in the 1970s

is of vital national interest, but what Bush did in the ’80s is

irrelevant.

5. Providing health care to all Iraqis is sound policy. Providing

health care to all Americans is socialism.

6. Global warming and tobacco’s link to cancer are junk science, but

creationism should be taught in schools.

7. Group sex and drug use are degenerate sins unless you someday run

for governor of California as a Republican.

8. If condoms are kept out of schools, adolescents won’t have sex.

9. Being a drug addict is a moral failing and a crime, unless you’re a

conservative radio host. Then it’s an illness and you need our prayers

for your recovery.

10. A woman can’t be trusted with decisions about her own body, but

multinational corporations can make decisions affecting all mankind

without regulation.

11. Jesus loves you, and shares your hatred of homosexuals and Hillary Clinton.

12. A good way to fight terrorism is to belittle our longtime allies,

then demand their cooperation and money.

13. Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him, a bad guy when Bush’s

daddy made war on him, a good guy when Cheney did business with him

and a bad guy when Bush needed a “we can’t find Bin Laden” diversion.

The A/C

So yet another productive day. It stated out rough, but that seems to have been cleared up. I was very offended that he could have thought that I was the one behind that. Whatever.

After that fiasco, I went out and rode my bike for about an hour, and then went and laid around on campus and read Kevin. I finished him, and then started on the other book that Andrew got me. It’s alright so far. I’m only about 70 pages in though. I laid around on campus from about 9:30 tell 11:30, then rode off to class.

More amusing class time, we spent the first hour talking about the Social Contract and then we spent the second out doing a quiz over it. I haven’t been doing too well on quizes this week, so tonight I’m going to study, and read over the info for the paper.

Speaking of, we got the information for the paper today, the first part of it is due on Monday, so I really have to get going on that. He said it should be from about 5-10 pages. I don’t know if I can really do that?!?!

After class off to work again, more amusement. I really didn’t do much, although I did do a lot. I bought a $3,000 computer today. Good times, that’s always fun. Also did some more work on my website, but I’m stuck because I can’t find the hack for the b2people functions.

After work I was going to go for a walk, but after last night, and all the biking I did today, my legs vetoed that idea. So I guess I’ll put that off. I’ll be doing a lot of biking tomorrow, I’ll have to go to campus twice, and then to walgreens, who the hell knows where that’s at in Ames??? Perhaps a tanning appointment too. I dunno yet though.

I also broke down and turned on the A/C today. I was hoping to not do it for a while, but it was 90 in here when I got home, and after riding my bike into the wind (Which FYI, was VERY strong today) I was really hot and I just had to turn it on. It’s very nice in here now. I can live with this. Hopefully I’ll be able to afford the power bill! lol

I’ve also devised a new scheme for next year. I’ll graduate on time, and then if I can’t get a job right away in the area of the country that I want to go to, I’ll stay here, work for Krell until my lease is up (Aug 1) and then move to whereever I want to go. I should have about $2-3 grand saved by then (Hopefully more). And then I can worry about finding a job whereever I end up.

You know what’s fun to say…
“Ohhh, THERE’S A PASS!” ::pointing at a hot boy::
“But you know who’s even hotter?!?!”
“MY BF!!!”

Hehe, I’m amused!

So I’m watching this screw up thing, and Hillary Clinton just said “I’m having a great time being a first term pres…. Senator”

Back to what I was talking about, I think so far, today has been the worst. Since usually it’s just an Andrew and I day, and I haven’t been able to see him. :'( I can’t wait tell Sunday when he gets back. I’m thinking I may go and surprise him at the Airport. But I haven’t decided yet if I want to. I’d feel as though I was barging in on the trip at that point yet, and interupting the last part of it all. But I’ll see how things go.

Oh, so randomness. Yesterday while riding my bike home from work, I was crossing the bridge and at the end there’s these posts, while last night there were like 5 or 6 hotdogs wrapped up in like the silver wrapping that you get from a c-store. I didn’t think anything of it and just kept riding. Well this morning, I rode by again on my way to work (I had to drop something off, so I was there about 9ish) and I noticed that they were still there, but I left them and kept going. Today on my way home from work (about 7ish), I noticed that the hotdogs were gone and had been replaced by a blimpie and a pop. I was like, (WHAT THE HELL!!)

Stupid News Anchors.
