Today is primary election day in Illinois.

The state is in pretty sad shape. Go vote the bums out that got us here.

Illinois is bankrupt

January 20, 2010 Comments off

If there was ever a need for some fiscal discipline, even bloodletting, it is now.
Illinois enters a state of insolvency
I would almost say good riddance, let the state die, but I need to buy some more personal protection and emergency supplies first. No telling what this will lead to.

Oh yeah, thanks Rod and fellow democrats!


I’m ready for spring!

This winter isn’t even a month old and I’m sick of it. Maybe its because the snow has stuck around too long.

Whatever the cause of my discontent, I am just itching to get started on this year’s to do list. I’m going to get some chickens, so I’ve started designing a chicken coop. I would like to get some cows as well, but before doing that I need to sow some pasture seed in late February. Then I need to put up a fence. And I’m getting an urge to buy some heirloom seeds for the garden already.

I just hope there’s enough money to do all this.

I’ll post my coop design when its finished. Hopefully I can start building it soon. Baby chicks go on sale in March.

A Message To Senator Roland W. Burris

November 25, 2009 Comments off

I received an e-mail from my distinguished Senator, Roland Burris, touting his newfangled website and declaring his love for a health care reform public option. Read the e-mail.

I love the picture of Roland with the “medical professionals”. They look straight out of med-school if not still in it. Real professionals that have been involved with health care for a long time would probably disagree with the distinguished Senator.

Well I decided to respond to the e-mail and here is what I wrote:

In an e-mail sent to me you said “I would like to hear from you” concerning Healthcare. In the very next sentence you claim to be convinced of the need for a public option. Mr. Burris, you obviously do not want to hear from me since you have already made up your mind on the subject.

Be informed that voting for the Reid/Pelosi/Obama Healthcare reform bill in its current form will NOT endear you to your constituents since a majority of people in this country OPPOSE it.

Please reconsider your decision to support this bill and I will reconsider being convinced to vote against you in the next election.

I’m sure Roland will never read it.

Why unions must be reformed

SEIU Considering Legal Action Against City For Allowing Eagle Scout to Clear Walking Path

“there’s to be no volunteers.” No one except union members may pick up a hoe or shovel, plant a flower or clear a walking path.

Is this the communist utopia we’ve all been waiting for?

Scary creature of the day

bald bear

Its El Chupacabra!

No, its a hairless bear, but scary as heck. Look at the claws on that thing!

Its sort of like a hairless cat. Cats are furry and cute normally, but the Siamese variety are just plain ugly and scary.
