Danny Federici Is Gone

Danny will be missed so much and with tickets in my hand to a show this month, I realize I am seeing something less than what will never be seen in it's entirety again, The E Street Band.
When They Built You Brother ...the broke the mold.

Al Gore says so ??? That Can't be True

I literally know someone who is in eery other aspect of her daily and professional life much more reasonable, but says that global warming cannot be true ...and gives the primary reason for this belief is that Al Gore says so. So deep is her distaste for the wouldve been shouldve been Gore who proves that all things happen for a reason,and is doing much more for the citizens of America and our planet by having lost in 2000 to the C student who has proven that he is all that that implies. Haven't we all met thos people who say that they can't possibily fathom global warming as long as such things as a cold and blustery day are still in their personal existence. The old "Al Gore ought to feel how cold it is HERE and he'd know there is no such thing as global warming." Wow...such disdain for the simple truths of science. Didn't we all go to grammer school ? Did you deny the existence of gravity as well or proclaim the world is flat? Silly.

More Big Oil as the Bad Guy in our lives

Fuel prices are pushing our budgets ..those of the lower and middle class americans the the brink....folks there are two main causes of this as I see it..the greed of the big oil companies..and the inability of the us govt ..the bush administration to stand up those who are doing this to america...gas goes up ...everyone knows that everything goes up...and when i say this, please take no disprespect to the brave soldiers doing all they can do in the middle east...but ...for me here at home, if gas goes up 50 cents ..that effects my family as if a bomb went off in my back yard..or more correctly ...the driveway. Elect leaders who will stand up to big oil and face the energy cost problems with the ever escelating prices diminishing all aspects of our way of life ...especially on the homesteads of farmers and the overwhelmingly underappreciated independent trucker.

A Rant About STUPID Jurors

I want to talk about how dumb juries can be.

In my area, a couple is on trial for using their storefront as a place for the dealing of drugs including meth. in fact...they were caught with 500 grams of meth.

do you know how much that is ??? 500 grams.

And after jury selection, non the first day of the trial, the wife pleaded guilty to her parts of the 500 grams of meth...now the community ahs a chance to do something about the scourge of what this does to a small town in the way of increased crime, the prominnence of drugged up scum, and most importantly, the awful peer pressure that high school kids get from others to try meth and other drugs.

Now on the third day of the trial, some of the jurors were admonished for talking about the case amongst themeselves, asking the question "who is xxxx xxxxxl." SHE IS THE ONE WHO HAD 500 GRAMS OF METH AND PLEADED GUILTY TO IT. Excuse me, but as important as it is to do something about this particular problem...can we try...just try to seat jurors who have a stinking clue as to whats going on ???
