This is unfortunate

Tuesday, February 28th, 2006

I just created and validated my link between PayPal and the iTunes music store.

But they’ve warned me that I can only spend $5000 a month with this arrangement. How will I feed my music addiction on just $5000 a month? I mean, five thousand a week I could live with. But just $5000 a month? It’s nearly a dollar a track, for cryin’ out loud!

It’s insane. The whole world’s gone insane. Everywhere I turn, I have limits imposed on me. I can’t get by with just 5000 new songs each month! What happens if Jessica Simpson comes out with a new 6,000 track box set? I’m screwed; that’s what!

This is an outrage.

On a serious note: Thanks, Jamie. If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t even have a balance in my PayPal account. You’re only the second person that’s ever hit the button. You honestly, seriously have no idea what it meant. Maybe I’ll share the whole story someday. For all of you religious or “atheist” folks, it involves God speaking to me. That’s spooky and makes me weird, right?

Ok. Have your fun misery with the idea of prosperity. God talks to me about it. And sometimes He talks to others on my behalf. The really cool part is: those that listen on the giving side and those that listen on the receiving side… they both get blessed.

Don’t let “drunk” fool ya. Jamie hears God.

(Don’t bug Jamie about this. He probably has no idea what I’m talking about.)

MacGyver

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2006

I try to be modest most times, but since Heidi loves MacGyver and I think she’s the bee’s knees….

I have to confess that I once fixed a really big sandwich using nothing but things found in a common, household refrigerator.

That’s just one of my adventures. Oh, the stories I could tell.

*struts away singin’*

They come runnin’,
Just as fast as they can.
‘Cause every girl’s crazy
’bout a sharp dressed man

Top coat.
Top hat.
But I don’t wear it,
‘Cause my wallet’s fat.

Tell me…

What do you think Matthew 11:12 means? I know what I believe. I would like to hear your opinions.

How stupid does it have to get?

Michael Angelo Morales was scheduled to die in California for… for… Not deserving life. He brutally raped and murdered a 17 year old girl in 1983. He first tried to strangle her but apparently was too much of a pussy to pull that off. (It’s awfully hard to fail at a strangling.) So he beat her in the head with a hammer and then stabbed her in the chest, before raping her and leaving her half alive to die slowly.

Now, I could read just that first paragraph and ask the question: Nineteen Eighty FRICKIN’ THREE!!! What the hell is wrong with our so-called “justice system’, specifically in California?!?!

But that’s not the issue here. The lazy, inept bastards that call themselves “Justice” finally got around to his execution. Except….

His attorneys are arguing that lethal injection is cruel and unusual punishment. That would be funny if it wasn’t true. What’s worse, a federal judge agreed to allow two anesthesiologists to be on stand-by “in case his lethal injection created undue pain.” That’s not at all funny. They had two lined up but they backed out for ethical reasons and now the execution has been delayed.

I don’t blame the anesthesiologists. Their concern was that if he doesn’t die quickly, their oath would require them to resuscitate him and, thus, make things worse. (He deserves at least that – dying twice, I mean – but they shouldn’t be forced to do it.) It’s the judge and the attorney(s) that are the problem. They should die with the convict.

If you want to know what is cruel and unusual, read the first paragraph where I described the crime for which he was convicted.

If you want my opinion…. and you know you do, the attorney that made that argument before a federal judge should be executed with the vile convict. The judge should be impeached and exiled. I don’t advocate anything worse than lethal injection for the attorney, even though he deserves worse. But Michael Angelo Morales will never see anything close to “justice” in America, even if California grows a set and kills him.

Before you get your panties in a wad, keep in mind that this evil attorney (oops! that’s redundant) has resorted to arguing about not whether he should die, but how. According to him, lethal injection is “cruel and unusual.” Maybe in California. Around here, we’d call that gettin’ off easy.

“Justice,” I will have to explain, since the government is incapable of it, would be publicly announcing his release at the same time as a police strike. I’ll be first in line. Just make sure you give me enough advance notice to stop by Home Depot on the way. (I wouldn’t want to use an “unclean” hammer; it would have to be brand new.)

Justice for him is being beat almost to death with a hammer and then left to bleed. At the least. I would settle for an old fashioned hanging. But lethal injection is “cruel and unusual.” Yes. The needle is cruel and unusual – to the victims’ families and to the notion of justice.

And, by the way, I don’t even support the death penalty. This is why. Government is too inept to be trusted with it.

I sure wish I could’ve been born before America died. It was great while it lasted. Or so I’ve read.

If you would like to take a lesson away from this it is: If you’re going to get murdered, do it in Texas. We’ll still get you some justice. As Ron White has said, “Other states are trying to do away with the death penalty. In my state [Texas], we’re puttin’ in an express lane.”

But what do I know? I don’t even own a long, black dress robe.

You can dream.

But if you think you can take me, dream on.

You’re nowhere near man enough.

You don’t even live in the same world as me.
