Well the weather is much better the snow is just about gone, which only means one thing. Time to get the car out and go for a drive. Hopefully I can get a drive in before I head to Florida.

Yep I am heading to Florida, for the first time in my life I am traveling to a warmer place during winter. Coincidentally it’s going to be in the 60’s while I am gone, so not much of a change for me. Though everyone knows I prefer colder temps. Well as I may have written I became reacquainted with a lady I dated last year. It turns out she has moved last October. So we got to talking which turned into an offer to come down to Florida and I could stay with her. Now immediately people are thinking “your going to get some leg for sure”. Well that is not my thought at all, I am not that naive to think that an invite “comes with sex”. I have slept next to women and nothing happened, I think mature single people can do that. I do NOT condone that married people sleep next to a single friend, maybe when your 80 🙂 . This lady and I have had no previous physical encounters other than a kiss. We did have a good time, we have been bike riding, gambling and been to the movies. So we shall see what happens while I am there this weekend.

Well on to other things, irritations. Civil servants (or as I like to think UNcivil servants) who get in trouble getting “On leave with pay”. I am sorry but whoever dreamed this up ought to be electrocuted. It’s no wonder these adrenaline junkies think they are above everyone else and the badge just compounds this thinking. How about your FIRED and when and IF your found innocent then you will be reinstated and you receive back pay. These people are supposed to be examples for the rest of us, yet I rarely see a turn signal, parking in “No Parking” areas, a friendly wave all I see is snobbery and elitism. If you are younger than them and drive a nicer car you are pretty much doomed to getting a ticket and being harassed. No I have not had an incident just heard something on the news and also remembered some things from the past.

So in the future, use turn signals, maybe a friendly wave once in a while, maybe not drive down the highway during rush hour causing “inDAviduals” to think that your supposed to drive 5 -10 UNDER the posted speed limit. While out make sure that people aren’t running red lights and that their equipment (tail lights, signals, etc) are working as that helps all of us.

Well in April I am heading out to California for a pseudo family reunion, it should be pretty good. Though if it turns into a “house arrest” situation I will not be happy. Nothing like flying half way across the country and be able to see the local sights as well.

While I do not know what all took place I would like to congratulate Egypt for their own overthrow and hope they can show the world that bad leadership of any kind can be removed.

Good luck to Iran and Sudan.

America, take notes we need to work on this here as well!!

Well for the first time in quite a while I decided to watch the “pat on the back” and “mini campaigning”.

So what was said, not much as usual.
So were going to spend money and be fiscally responsible, there must some new math that they are using in Washington. This is like watching an award show, one person says something and everyone claps. (LEMMINGS) (Trained primates).

Some of what was spoken seemed pointless, I am glad the people of Sudan are able to vote but that has NOTHING to do with the “state” of our Onion.

Is Washington really naive in thinking that the Iraqi people are “converted” and will be stable when we leave? This should have never started, they never asked for us to come over and help them. Has we “stayed” home, we could have replaced 1000’s of bridges and roads that are in serious disrepair.

As for the statement “we are the hardest working people”, yes we work more hours that any other country. What does it get us? Depression, anxiety, crime, anger, aggression etc. Check other countries, their standard of living is quite acceptable yet they work less.

He spoke about a school in Michigan that had poor attendance and graduation levels. I will admit that I have not researched it but from what I know about Missouri schools, they lowered the expectations/standards thus creating more positive numbers.

Undocumented workers and people coming here to learn then leave. We undocumented worker just have to go period end of story. As for the latter, maybe make part of the curriculum that they do a 3 year internship before they leave.

A lot of talk was about the future. This is POINTLESS, he only has control over the next 1 year, 5 at best. Plus he does not have the final say so on anything. So these 10 year and 15 year plans are lip service to make us feel shiny and happy.

I also am dis-enfranchised when I hear things like “I will get democrats and republicans to work together”. Last I checked there are far more than 2 parties. Libertarians and Green party have existed for a very long time and have people in Office, either include them or I will continue to NOT VOTE.

Why is it that he said, “black and white and Latino, Chinese etc” . Should that have been “African-Americans, Caucasians, Latinos and Chinese”

The only good that I heard was the fact that gays can serve their country without prejudice. I support gay people, they should be allowed to marry, divorce and experience all the pains and poor laws of hetero couples.

Lastly, while tragic the shooting in Tucson is no more news worthy than anything else. People are shot in this country everyday, we should not be elevating our public servants to hero status. They work for use period.

So next time there is a State of the Union, how about reporting the unemployment rate, what you have done the past year. OR pick 100 citizens give them a pre-test to see if they have any clue and let them grade your performance.

Your our employee and should be treated as such!!!!
