The System, I Fixed It!

I sold a car a while back and made the huge mistake of not keeping the license plates from it. The new owner has a bad habit of driving through a toll booth about once or twice a month, and I kept having to fill out and send in TXDOT notifications of title transfer. The new owner would continue driving on my old tags, and get another toll bill, and I would get the tab for it. Lather, rinse, repeat.

I got tired of this nonsense, and wrote a letter to the CTRMA/MSB people about how they were mistreating an innocent taxpayer, costing me time and money etc. and never heard back from them. The same day, I wrote to Texas Senator Kirk Watson. He didn’t care for it, either, and got in contact with them.

Today I got a call from the CTRMA saying they were instituting a change in the system for people similarly situated, so the bills will theoretically not be going to former car owners. This was something they didn’t have any way to track, and now the robots are going to be told to do it differently. We’ll see how well it works, but remember this if nothing else:

Contacting your Elected Heroes can yield results. Don’t forget they work for you and don’t be scared. The system sucks sometimes but it can be changed without even shooting at anyone.

Until the revolution comes, work to reform the system from within.

Global Warming Causing Record Cold Temperatures!

In the US, winter is cold.

In further news, fire is hot and you should not play in traffic.

I suppose a natural weather cycle will leave you scratching your head if you were expecting temperatures to rise like the stock market, but then, look what happened to the stock market. Sunspots made it crash!

Oh well, at least there have been some sunspots recently.

Oh, and a bunch of methane has been released lately all over the planet. We should have been feeling the heat from such a widespread methane release by now, but it keeps getting colder!

Climate change = weather. Don’t be scared of it. Prepare for cold winters and hot summers. When it’s time for this planet to go out, it’s going to be in a fire storm, and then it’s going to get tossed like an old shirt (according to the Bible). YOU aren’t going to cause it with your SUV.

Still, it’s nice of you to lower the cost of my gasoline by buying less, so thanks for being too scared to drive a truck, I guess.

Joe Biden: Candidate For . . . Senator?

Joe Biden is running for a seat in the US Senate.

Of course, he isn’t appearing at any campaign events, rallies, town hall forums, or answering any questions. He is counting on name recognition to get him re-elected to a 7th term.

This says 2 things about him, and both are gems.

Either he doesn’t give a d-mn about the people he is supposed to represent, or he doesn’t believe 100% that BO will win.

By the way, if you are in Delaware and vote for Biden for senate, and Obama wins the white house, you have been disenfranchised. Your governor will pick a Senator for you. The vote that you thought you cast for Senator, will not have counted for diddly-squat.

Do you think Obama is ignorant of this? Probably not. So they want your vote for Senate not to count. In addition to getting the dead to vote (again) for Obama and Biden,

they want to steal your votes! [/hysteria] That right there is almost enough to make me endorse Christine O’Donnell. Of course, her campaign website pushes me right to the announcement:

David endorses Christine O’Donnell in her race for Senator in 2008.

If You Can Still Vote Early, DO IT!

We went and early-voted tonight. It only took an hour and a half. I heard one person say it took a half-hour on Monday. Tomorrow will be worse, and Tuesday the lines will be down the street.

This is a good thing, as long as everyone is voting intelligently. When the Breck Girl John Edwards was a candidate, some people thought he stood a good chance because his hair is pretty. Now BO stands a chance because his skin is the “correc” color, nevermind the Marksism [sic].

Last congressional and local elections around here, it was walk in, vote, walk out, with 3 of 6 machines occupied. Tonight there were 10 machines and lines around the block still at 7:20.

I wonder what the turnout rates will be. Surely higher than the 15% we’ve been running on local elections around here.

The Economy: Bad Recession, Playing Footsie w/ Depression.

Consumer spending has (officially, finally) fallen in the US. For the first time since the last fairly bad recession, 3.1%. But you already knew that because the economy is you people and

You people keep not spending your MONEY!

SO, tell you what we’ll do: We’re going to cut the interest rate on loans from Uncle Sugar to 0%.

That’s right. Zero percent financing from the only one dumb enough to lend money right now to people who should be going out of business: you the US Federal Government.

You have stopped buying things you don’t need.

So manufacturers have stopped making them, and their suppliers of materials and equipment have stopped making materials and equipment, because nobody is buying more of them, either.

Nobody is making MORE STUFF because everyone is stretched to the limit.

The solution? Obviously cheaper loans! That way, you will take on more debt! Then the economy will recover like magic! And your grandkids can pay it all off!

Wonderful. Thanks guys, see you at the ballot box!

Oh, wait, who put them there, the voters, or Bush?

oooooooooh, that’s right. Good job staying out of the capitalism, jerks.

By the way, some people called this a year and two years in advance. I won’t say I told you so, but . . .

TSA: Making A Mockery Of Safety (Still)

See? This right here is why I don’t fly anywhere.

Oh, and I haven’t since before 9/11. I’m not scared of Terrorists, I’m pissed that the .feds think I am a stupid one.

Yes, they think you are a stupid terrorist, also. Read the article.

Yes, they know there are vulnerabilities. No, they don’t plan to address them all. Because they don’t care about preventing attacks, one can only presume.

In Israel, there are armed guards in restaurants. In USA, there are “no weapons” signs in restaurants. Which do you think is a better dissuader of ill-intentioned persons?

You are being made fun of. And you are a willing participant.

. . . and I am driving, and it takes the same amount of time to get to Houston driving as it does sitting through security and flying. . . and I have a car when I get there.

Obama’s Birth Certificate: Nanny-Nanny Boo-Boo!

In Kenya, where his grandmother said he was born, they won’t release his records till after the election.

In Hawaii, where he claims to have been born, they won’t release the original birth certificate until he asks for it, and he hasn’t asked. They also won’t say if it is a cert. for a birth in Hawaii.

Berg’s lawsuit was dismissed. Do we really have to wait until BIDEN is the successor, to find out if this joker is lying about being qualified to be President?

Obama: 100% Tax Rates Like His Daddy?

from www.thedonovan.com

So it turns out Obama’s Black African Daddy was a Commie/Socialist as well. I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, even when the tree abandons the apple when he’s still a toddler. And then remains so far out of BO’s life that he writes a book dedicated to him, and spends a month at a time with BO when he’s grown. Right. Pure abandonment by THAT daddy. Not influential at all

Now Barry has not (yet) gone this far:

“What is more important is to find means by which we can redistribute our economic gains to the benefit of all,” said the senior Obama, a Harvard-educated economist. “This is the government’s obligation.” The “means” he had in mind were confiscatory taxes on a scale that redefines the term “progressive taxation.”

“Theoretically,” he wrote, “there is nothing that can stop the government from taxing 100% of income so long as the people get benefits from the government commensurate with their income which is taxed.”

No, BO has only proposed an effective 54% top federal tax bracket. Plus the cost of health care for everybody that will have to be paid by “somebody.”

And I really tend to doubt that he wants to take EVERY dollar you earn, and give it back to you in the form of government benefits (you want luxuries and conveniences? Capitalist dog!). Besides, he doesn’t have the votes even if he wanted to, right?

*********

Edit/Update:

Oh wait, BO didn’t write “Dreams” all by himself (like he lied and said he did). It looks like (radical unrepentant terrorist) Ayers did. And if you think Obama was hoodwinked by all these leftists turning up as his past allies all over the place, think again. He chose them “carefully”.

He is a naked Marxist, at least, and even Michael Savage has endorsed the Non-Obama candidate. And he almost(?) HATES McCain!
