March 2011

We have it in case there is a strategic need for oil and gas.

Do you remember when there were some fruits and vegetables that you couldn’t get during the summer?  In the upper midwest, Strawberries (yes, Strawberries is spelled with a capital “s”) were available from early July through mid-September.  I remember many fourths of July where Strawberries were not available.  I can go to the store and buy them cheaply right now, along with avocados, grapes, corn, oranges, mangoes, tangerines, etc.

The availability of cheap fruit is not a strategic need.  $20 pairs of jeans and $9.99 t-shirts are not strategic need.  Sorry kids, the price of oil is up because supply is down and demand is up (this article is almost a year old).  It sucks, it means that it costs more to get to work which means that employers have to pay more which means that profits are decreased which means prices rise.  Yep, that’s what it means.

So stop whinning for the strategic reserve.  If I wanted someone with the intelligence of a dog to be in office, I would have voted for Sarah Palin or Glenn Beck.




Thankfully my humans had the cheezburger masheen ( uggh, bad spelling) prepared for the nice weather today.  I had a glorious opportunity to yell at those damn squirrels.

On more human oriented topics, the great state of wisconsin passed a measure that removed bargaining rights for public employees.  What has amused me, for years, is how union employees have voted Republican since 2002.

Sorry Charlie, your anti-union vote actually turned out to be anti-union.  For all of the steel workers, auto workers, mechanics, etc in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Indiana, West Virginia and Maryland, please remember in 2012 how much you got royally fucked by this last vote.  I know that the Republicans do a great job of pretending to be morally superior; they’re not.  Vote union, or be prepared to die poor.

No, those are your only options:  Democrat, or dead.

Pickles and lettuce it must’ve been nice…

Pet a kitty!



It’s difficult, but the only way out of this mess is through federal health care.

Health care costs continue to increase.  It’s cool to blame Obamacare for the additional costs, but the majority of the increase is from what it actually costs to keep us healthy.

Oh, did you just think out loud about the post office?  “Blah blah, the governement can’t deliver the mail effectively, how are they going to run health care?”

The federal government also runs the military.  They seem to be doing just fine.  Sources: World War I, World War II, Vietnem War (No, I mean it, Vietnam currently runs a capitalist economy(and they make your pepper!)), etc.

Also, it’s almost spring.  Please have grills ready at all times.

Rahm, secret political groups, and Chicago clout.  I’m glad that the corruption is gone!

Hurray for no corruption! Meow!!1!1
