Weird title, but let that be your warning. I've been away for so long and have so many things running through my mind. This post is just going to be me thinking out loud, wondering about stuff, and basically dumping all my thoughts out so I can decide what needs to be put back in and what can be discarded. Brain Barf - zesty
To the government please quit screwing with the military, gun owners, and former military gun owners. You won't get our guns - you may have signed away our entitlements but now we're mad Veterans. No, that's not a threat - just pointing out the obvious (that all of y'all might have missed). Military trained, pissed off gun owners.
Paul Ryan and John McCain - I'm embarrassed that I voted for tickets you were on. And I'm embarrassed that after you screwed us Vets you asked for money. No, I won't vote for Hillary - but I guarantee I will not ever vote for any ticket either of you are on. Anyone who lives your states that has ever served in the military shouldn't either. Goodness I hope they figure that out. For the record I would never (again) vote for a ticket with Sarah Palin on it either.
(Some) Christians: Really? I don't know if I can even go there. You guys know you're being bigoted and wrong - not living according to they way Jesus would want you to, yet you persist. There's a reason religion has been the cause of most of the wars. You know what - be nice to each other and quit being self righteous jack asses. No one has time for that crap.
Gay marriage - yep - do it. Why should people who love each other be forbidden to be with each other? If you comment with some crap pertaining to the paragraph above I will delete it. I don't like bigoted, self righteous people. I live in a state full of them - they are not pleasant. As the government (state or federal) you have no business being in everyone's personal life anyway. There are much more important things that you can worry about.
Why is it a violation of someone's rights to have to take a drug test to get welfare? My husband had to take a drug test to get a job, and our taxes are going to pay for your welfare. What's good for the goose and all that. If you don't want to, then get a job like other people and pay your own way. 'Nuff said.
Do people really still believe anything that comes out of the president's mouth? Just wondering.
Instead of making people pay for some health insurance they don't want why didn't the government just do a VAT tax like in Europe? Sure, you'll pay more for stuff when you buy it but then you can just walk into a doctor and be taken care of. That would have probably cost a lot less money to implement than the joke website. Maybe that wouldn't work - I don't know, I'm just wondering if it was even thought about. If it wouldn't work why? It works in Europe. Just sayin'
Why did I do this? I'm not crazy about Sponge Bob and I'm claustrophobic - yet I did it anyway. Just thinking about being all wrapped up waiting for Zach to take the picture makes me panic.
Garage sale or Ebay?
How do you budget a weekly pay schedule? I have no frame of reference for this. We've always been paid once or twice a month. Weekly kind of freaks me out.
If Jewish people are "wrong" for not believing in Jesus, how come the Mormons are the only people who believe Joseph Smith? Basically it's the same thing - the word of God came through a person. No, I'm not Jewish or Mormon - I'm just wondering why. Oh and if Jesus came today and was all preaching about whatever he was preaching about would anyone believe him? See, it goes back to that whole Joseph Smith thing. What's the line between 'real' and 'cult'? (No I DO NOT believe that LDS is a cult - I DO however love my coffee so I could never be Mormon)
Why do the people on Ancient Aliens think that no one from long ago could be smart enough to figure out how to build stuff on their own? Humans are resourceful buggers. Just because we couldn't do it now doesn't mean they didn't figure out a way to do it then. Tons of history has been erased because of war. I know it's hard sometimes, but give the human race some credit. Besides, people are lazy now - that's why no one can imagine moving those big ass rocks around.
I think the new Common Core Standards are crap. There is no way every state is going to be equal in education. My theory - standards in some of the "better" states are going to have to drop so states like South Carolina can look like they are equal.
Because of the paragraph above now I have to decide if I'm going to go back to school or not. If I do it won't be to be a teacher - I'd rather be an accountant. And I want to audit government records.
I'm so sick of hearing about Jadeveon Clowney. I'm glad he's going to quit college and head for the NFL. If you don't know who he is you're lucky. Fingers crossed that he doesn't get drafted by the Carolina Panthers.
Why did Discovery cancel Dirty Jobs? Why doesn't History cancel Pawn Stars?
Who cares what Phil Robertson thinks? Every person is entitled to their own opinion. Not agreeing is one of the great things about this country. Turn it off if you don't like it. That's what I did with Pawn Stars!
I just realized I said "all of y'all".
