143 years and still counting.

Heading home from work yesterday, a pickup truck entered the expressway about 10 miles from my home, proudly flying the stars and stripes of Old Glory. But he had the stars and bars of the Confederate States waving beside it.


Why have so many learned nothing and still have this innate hatred of their fellow man? Why is this even allowed to still exist? This symbol of slavery is flown everywhere. You hear and read so much of people that claim "It's not racism. It's just me honoring my ancestors and celebrating my heritage." Your ancestors enslaved humans and your heritage is a disgusting line of cruelty!! Why do we not believe the claim when someone flies this and says "it's just me remembering my legacy"? Cause we know that symbol is wrong, just as the Confederate flag is wrong. Justify it all you want - no person that believes in the equality of all men would think the flag is anything but the support of a horrible blemish in the history of the US, and the world.

And now, here we are as a country with a qualified African American poised to take a seat behind the most powerful desk in the country, and yet - too many still live and think as if we are still in an era of intolerance. I think instead of them seceding, we just need to kick them out.

Are we getting too lazy?

I remember a short time back yet another article telling us how fat and lazy we are as a nation. Stinks how true it is, but facts are facts. And then I was in the washroom earlier (when nature calls, one must respond accordingly) and I noticed just how many inventions are around that do nothing but contribute to that laziness. Granted, many do not affect the whole tub-of-lard thing, but as a nation, we are some lazy dudes.

Back to the bathroom and auto flushing toilets. Now com'on.... is it that dang difficult to push the lever down??? Do you get some weird enjoyment over leaving what you left in the bowl for the next person to view? And what about the faucets? There is no way you can wet your hands, dispense soup, lather and rinse all in the 6.4 seconds the hot water button stays down. That is at least a three push procedure. But sometime, in the past, someone just turned the water on, washed up and walked away. I wonder just what the homes of these people look like (or smell).

YouTube-sday™: I'm not fricking BSD!!!

I love the Mac/PC spoofs. Not the actual video spoofs, but the spoofs OF the spoofs. Here's a double shot of Mac/PC spoof-spoof for your pleasure:

YouTube-sday™: Back to the 80's

I remember catching this band some flip through on MTV when they were playing videos (I am not even going to crack a joke about how they don't play them anymore - that would be like making fun of Matthew McConaughey's inability to keep his shirt on). Liked The Primitives back then - still like them now. Rock out:

PS - I think my cube partner that sits behind me must think I am totally gay for searching and linking so many McConaughey topless pics.
