Not another post, ugh

Finally government has taken the steps necessary to save us from smoke by force. Remember its for our own good. The only thing left to be decided upon is the start date, hopefully later rather than sooner.

I bought two packs of smokes for $10 at the gas station on Tuesday evening. The only other customer in the store asked me, "What'll ya do when those are illegal?" Without hesitation I replied, "Go home and clean the guns." That seemed to scare the crap out of him and I'm glad it did. People don't even question that cigarettes being illegal could be a reality. It'll never happen though, too much tax revenue at stake.

Speaking of taxes here's a proposal working it's way through the Capitol. The plan is to tax the "rich" a lot more so the poor can get a break, and what a break it is. It's proposed that if your taxable income is less than $5,400 (meaning poor) you'll recieve 90% of your property tax money back in a refund from the State of Minnesota. Don't worry, the "rich" are paying for it, so it's morally palatable.

Ohio passed some nasty lending laws about a year ago that banned about 35% of all mortgage loans. Forclosures have hit the roof, prices are falling and few people can get a loan. The solution now is that the State of Ohio is going into the mortgage lending business. They're planning on selling $100 million dollars in bonds and refinancing people who are behind on their loans. History tells us that government funded bailouts usually are the answer and I'm sure this will work without the usual unintended consequences of government action.

I think its a city in Texas that adopted a law to ban the feeding of homeless people without a license. Obviously it's almost impossible to get the license when YOU'RE A PRIVATE CHARITY FEEDING HUNGRY, MENTALLY RETARTED PEOPLE so most organizations quit trying. One church is suing the state over the issue which is a better use of resources than wasting those funds helping those in need like a charity should be doing.

The police were doing well this week too. In Saint Louis Park they raided the wrong house. Now the home owners can't sleep without nightmares of Storm Troopers. Somewhere else in the country some Storm Troopers tasered a guy three times while he vomited all over himself. That wasn't enough so a Storm Trooper stood over him and shot him three times in the chest, at point blank range, in front of his friend and her two childeren. The victim was a veteran of Iraq so at least he was familiar with treatment like that. How does it feel?

A group of people who had been tortured by the US gubbamint and found to be innocent tried suing Donald Rumsfeld and had their suit thrown out of court. The judge said that Rumsfeld couldn't be held responsible for the actions of people under his command, he can't keep track of all those people. Torture, it's all good now.

How much longer can this continue? Forever. That's right, forever. And it'll only get worse.

Doesn't anyone here remember the f*cking 4th of July!

Time for a change... Organise yourselves, get the monkey-boy out of the White House and start (literally) fighting back - They can't throw everyone in jail!!!

If you're too worried about joining in because of what you might lose, then you're pretty much the same as those you depise...

Thanks for reminding me - yes, the 5th would be a better option!

'Ooh the 5th isn't good for me. There is a Roseanne marathon on that day. Perhaps the 6th?'

That all depends on which season(s) they are running... If it's the latter ones I will make sure to throw a brick through your TV as I run past with the mob!

P.s. 'I do remember forth of july isnt that big willie weekend?' - Fortunately mine is also bigger many other times during the year - Oh well, I guess that's why they invented Viagra...
