or i could, like most GI's, just say the magic words....
besides, it's all been wrapped up in this gem, except for the discussion of why Canuckistan and the rest of the Empire does a better j*b of commemorating this day than the US does.

If George W. Bush had been the first President to need a teleprompter
installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have
laughed and said this is more proof of how he inept he is on his own
and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?
If George W. Bush had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take
Laura Bush to a play in NYC, would you have approved?

Olympics, would you have approved?

incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a
thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have
If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing

narcissistic and tacky?
If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia , would you
If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the
non-existent "Austrian language," would you have brushed it off as a
If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with
people who cannot seem to keep current in their income taxes, would
you have approved?
If George W. Bush had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to
"Cinco de Cuatro" in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the
5th of May (Cinco de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried
again, would you have winced in embarrassment?
If George W. Bush had mis-spelled the word "advice" would you have
hammered him for it for years like Dan Quayle and potatoe as proof of
what a dunce he is?
If George W. Bush had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a
single tree on Earth Day, would you have concluded he's a hypocrite?
If George W. Bush's administration had okayed Air Force One flying

Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether
they actually get what happened on 9-11?
If George W. Bush had failed to send relief aid to flood victims

So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant
and impressive? Can't think of anything? Don't worry. He's done all
this in 5 months -- so you'll have three years and seven months to
come up with an answer.
telling advice from Usenet, which the miserable fucks, neighborhood busy bodies and would be local political scum should have well heeded.
instead, they rammed through their vision for a piece of city property in my AO, AND had the fucking gall to propose a local tax district to pay for the rest of the shit they decided we should have. people tried to talk to them, but they didn't listen. in fact they actually threatened me for even trying to be involved with the project, and then tried to slander me behind my back when that didn't w*rk. they even forced an old friend to carry a veiled threat of litigation to me. i told her to pass back "so shut up and sue me."
well, fuck all you assholes and how does it feel to be my personal bitch? i fucking pwned all of you oh so "connected" movers and shakers. i wrote fliers in my inimitable style, and walked them to every house in the area, time and time again. i stirred up a quiet neighborhood in the best rabble-rouser style and it paid off this week.
the city conducted a straw poll to see if they should spend the money on a formal election about creating the assessment district, sending out ~550 ballots to area property owners.
the final tally has just been released:
total votes: 318
Hell No: 251
so here's a final hearty "fuck you you fucking fucks" to all y'all, and now it's my turn. you should have stayed in your own turf and not bothered the bull but no, you wanted to play games.
well now you get to play "how far in will the horn go"? hope you enjoy it as much as i do.
and i don't have too many good days.
those of you that know me personally will vouch for this in general. i have a few friends i give a damn about, but in general, my opinion of mankind is shaped by my interactions with them. needless to say, i'm a firm believer in birth control, regular or retroactive, hence the title of this "pathetic blog".
today, i got some really good personal news that had me almost upbeat for about 5 whole hours, until i opened some email from the local busy body. now i'm contemplating restraining orders, lawsuits, press releases and waiting for certain local offices to open in the morning. no late night for me tonight.
and, instead of spending my big 5-0 in a haze of beer and tri-tip, i'm gonna be ass deep in assholes and local politics.
thanks ever so much, you fucking fucks. when you're screaming "why?", know that you could have played "nice", but instead you wanted to play "assholes".
well, i'm an asshole's asshole when i want to be, and i have fuck all to lose over this issue, unlike you. we're gonna see just how much you like having sunlight being shown in on your little schemes.
see you in hell, scumbags: it's home field to me.
Outdoor fucking begins today!
sorry, but i couldn't resist. %-)
Happy Birthday to my brother, who i don't think LJ's, but at least the thought is there, right?
