Random Thoughts

I haven't been feeling up to writing many posts lately. Seems I got into a rut of describing weather, rotten hunting luck, and weather. Not a good time. *sigh*


As I look around the blogsphere and see reports of TSA molestations I am reminded why I would rather drive than fly. Forking over hundreds of dollars to board a cramped sardine can with total strangers who may or may not be carriers of some horribly contagious disease has never been high on my priority list. Add the levels of "security" and it became obtrusive as hell. Now the TSA performs frisks that would have the ACLU battering down doors to the nearest court if it were a standard procedure in prison and I don't think I'll ever get on a plane again. I'd sooner drive 3000 miles--non-stop if required--than get in a line so some dipshit could fondle me. Hell, if they keep this up, I'd might even attempt to drive to Ireland, Hawaii or some such otherwise inaccessible locale.


I saw last week that poor Charlie Rangel got himself censured by the House and he's feeling all sorry for himself. Let's get something straight, Charlie. You belong in jail at the very least. Three rent controlled apartments in NYC? That's about two more than the law allows, ain't it? Property in the Caribbean that you didn't pay taxes on or declare on your disclosure forms? And, since you're no heir to a multimillionaire, just how have you managed to become so wealthy, dear boy?


Along with the above, I saw that Maxine Waters was all psyched because the Ethics Committee decided to postpone her hearing in light of new evidence. She thought it meant she had a strong case when, in fact--from all reports, the opposite is true. Careful what you wish for there, Maxine. (Bombshell evidence may make Waters an ethics nightmare for Dems) The new evidence indicates she may have even bigger problems that could drag others into the [cess]pool. She's going to wish they hadn't postponed those hearings if this goes past the end of the 111th congress. Can you say expulsion, Maxine?


In the "Even a Broken Clock..." category, we have Al Gore of all people telling the truth! [Gore: On second thought, I was just pandering to the farm vote on ethanol] He now recognizes the harm that using food to produce fuel has/can do.

[PS You don't suppose Al lost any money on that now defunct Carbon Exchange, do you? Nah, didn't think so myself. After all, it's not what you know but who you know that matters.]


Filed under: Illegal Aliens Doing Jobs Americans Won't Do. We have a verdict in the Chandra Levy murder case. Guilty. GUILTY. GUILTY!

Still, there is a push for more amnesty instead of deportation, walls, and strict enforcement of the existing laws. It's called the DREAM Act but it could as well be called a nightmare. GOP readies for DREAM Act fight DREAM Act is a Nightmare…

One definition of insanity that's been around for a while is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. This DREAM Act fits the definition to a T.

Ladies and gentlemen, if your first act upon entering this country is to break the law (via illegal entry) why should you be trusted to become a worthwhile member of our United States? The argument is made that this act would only benefit those who came as children under the age of 16, but it also allows their parents--who smuggled the little tyke over the border in the first place--to get green cards and work their way up to citizenship. Ahead of those who have legally waited their

Great post! I agree strongly on the flying thing. Didn't want to anyhow, but I wouldn't even let my own doctor do some of the stuff those TSA folks are getting up to.
