If you do not know me (I mean, really know me) then there is something you need to understand before you read this blog: I value the truth above everything else... except a good laugh. A good laugh will almost always beat the truth as far as I’m concerned. Everything you read on this blog will be true, somewhat true, or something I made up in an effort to get a laugh. Sometimes I will go on a rant that I don’t really mean (or only kind of mean). Sometimes I will mean what I write only to completely change my mind a year, month, or day later. Such is life. By reading this blog you agree not to get offended by anything I write (or, at the very least, you agree not to tell me or anyone else that you are offended). It is worth noting that my employer does not endorse my blog (or even read it, to tell you the truth). The Wife also does not endorse my blog (though she will read it from time to time). I am not paid to write this... it’s just my way of giving back to the community. I have, and will, touch on a wide range of subjects and will give my opinion on these subjects. Again, most of what I say is for laughs but every now and then I will say what I really think and feel (see my views on Westboro Baptist Cult). How will you know when I’m serious and when I’m trying to get a laugh? You’ll know. And if you don’t know, well... maybe this isn’t the best thing for you to be reading. So, sit back, read and enjoy.

Me and Daniel

I know this is old news, but I never got around to posting about it and I can’t stop thinking about it… so I’m going to get it off my chest.

Do you remember back in June of this year when the House Democrats conducted a sit-in to demand legislative action on gun violence? If my memory is correct, I don’t think anything came of it and they ended it after a day or so (though I could be wrong… honestly I can remember much about this other than what I’m about to talk about). There were a couple of stories in the media around this time like this one talking about the Senate Democrats bringing food to support their House Democrat friends. Go ahead and click on the link to see pictures of some of the food that came in… candy, pop-tarts, cookies, pizzas, soft drinks, donuts…

Think about this for a minute. Congressional Democrats… DEMOCRATS… D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T-S… and the food they chose were candy, pop-tarts, cookies, pizzas, soft drinks, donuts… not exactly known as “healthy food” (outside of my house). So, I don’t follow politics as closely as I probably should… but even I can tell you that the main “cause” (or at least one of the main causes) of our First Lady (Michelle Obama), who I believe is also a Democrat, is childhood obesity. Now, I grant you that her cause is CHILDHOOD obesity and the story I’m talking about is dealing with adults (who often act like children), but still. I mean, come on… a big part of her message is about eating healthy. So here are the Democrats in Congress, men and women in her own party, and they couldn’t last a day or two with just having healthy food?!?! Really?!?! If it had been Congressional Republicans doing it, I would have just assumed it was a friendly middle finger pointing at the White House, but the fact that it was Congressional Democrats blows my mind. Come on guys! And they TWEETED about it?! At least when Republicans back in the ‘80s were doing drugs, they didn’t tell the world about it. Why? Because they had enough respect for the White House that they weren’t going to crap all over Nancy Reagan’s “Just Say No” campaign.

Thank you for letting me get that off my chest. I feel better now.
