Things you have to believe to be a Republican today.....

Things you have to believe to be a Republican today.....
>Jesus loves you, and shares your hatred of homosexuals and Hillary
>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.
>Trade with Cuba is wrong because the country is Communist, but trade with China and Vietnam is vital to a spirit of international harmony.
>The United States should get out of the United Nations, and our
>national priority is enforcing U.N. resolutions against Iraq.
>A woman can't be trusted with decisions about her own body, but

>If condoms are kept out of schools, adolescents won't have sex.
>A good way to fight terrorism is to belittle our long-time allies, then demand their cooperation and money.

>HMOs and insurance companies have the best interests of the public at

Constitution, which include banning gay marriages and censoring the Internet.

George Carlin

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints.
We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh
too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to life not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things.

We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but
broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete...
Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.

Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.

Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.

Remember, to say, "I love you" to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.

Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that
person will not be there again.

Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
George Carlin

Fellow Crack Pots

The Cracked Pot
>While the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full
>portion of water, at the end of the long walk from the
>stream to the house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.
>For a full two years this went on daily, with the woman
>bringing home only one and a half pots of water. Of course,
>the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments. But the
>poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and
>miserable that it could only do half of what it had been
>made to do. After 2 years of what it perceived to be bitter
>failure, it spoke to the woman one day by the stream. "I am
>ashamed of myself, because this crack in my side causes
>water to leak out all the way back to your house." The old
>woman smiled, "Did you notice that there are flowers on your
>side of the path, but not on the other pot's side?" "That's
>because I have always known about your flaw, so I planted
>flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while
>we walk back, you water them. For two years I have been
>able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate the table.
>Without you being just the way you are, there would not be
> beauty to grace the house."
>Each of us has our own unique flaw. But it's the cracks and
>flaws we each have that make our lives together so very
>interesting and rewarding. You've just got to take each
>person for what they are and look for the good in them. SO,
>to all of my crackpot friends, have a great day and
>remember to smell the flowers on your side of the path!

9 Things I Hate About Everyone

9 Things I Hate About Everyone

1. People who point at their wrist while asking for the time.... I know where my watch is pal, where the hell is yours? Do I point at my crotch when I ask where the toilet is?

2. People who are willing to get off their ass to search the entire room for the T.V. remote because they refuse to walk to the T.V. and change the channel manually.

3. When people say "Oh you just want to have your cake and eat it too". Damn right! What good is cake if you can't eat it?

4. When people say "it's always the last place you look". Of course it is. Why the hell would you keep looking after you've found it? Do people do this? Who and where are they? Gonna Kick their asses!

5. When people say while watching a film "did you see that?". No Loser, I paid $12 to come to the cinema and stare at the damn floor.

6. People who ask "Can I ask you a question?".... Didn't really give me a choice there, did ya sunshine?

7. When something is 'new and improved!'. Which is it? If it's new, then there has never been anything before it. If it's an improvement, then there must have been something before it, couldn't be new.

8. When people say "life is short". What the hell?? Life is the longest damn thing anyone ever does!! What can you do that's longer?

9. When you are waiting for the bus and someone asks "Has the bus come yet?". If the bus came would I be standing here, dumbass?

A woman was leaving a convenience store with her morning coffee
when she noticed a most unusual funeral procession approaching
the nearby cemetery.

A long black hearse was followed by a second long black hearse
about 50 feet behind the first one. Behind the second hearse was
a solitary woman walking a pit bull on a leash. Behind her,
a short distance back, were about 200 women walking single file.

The woman couldn't stand her curiosity. She respectfully
approached the woman walking the dog and said,
"I am so sorry for your loss", I know now is a bad time to disturb you,
but I've never seen a funeral like this. Whose funeral is it?"

"My husband's."

"What happened to him?"

The woman replied, "My dog attacked and killed him."

She inquired further, "Well, who is in the second hearse?"

The woman answered, "My mother-in-law.
She was trying to help my husband when the dog turned on her."
A poignant and thoughtful moment of silence passed between the
two women.

"Can I borrow the dog?"

"Get in line."

I'll just beat him to death

So I have ignored everyone here, but hey its cool. School has been nuts, well thats not all but, I wont go into great detail.

All I know is that I moved from a small republican town, to a BIG republican town.

And I thought up north was hick-ville.....OHHH NO... . . . . .nothing compares to down here. One rock station on the radio (not that I listen to the radio anyways.) But still. Only 10 weeks to go after this. . . the countdown continues. One more weeks until midterms. So there!!

All I have to say is "Its the Beatles Bitch!!..."

Monday, September 25, 2006


It had been awhile since I have posted anything. . .

Well I have been really busy, but I really would not call it a good busy. I really don't like it down here, and well I don't think I'll spend more then a semester at this place. So the countdown begins. . .

11 weeks and counting. I'm trying to think in weeks rather than months, but they both right now sound the same.

lets just say that I moved from a small republican town, to a BIG republican town. . . It totally sucks.

Going home is my main mission during the weekends. It may put a lot of miles on my car, but right now I really don't care. Since as I cannot stand it down here much longer. . .
