In a few hours 2010 will be a memory…painful and at times humorous, but all in all, a year that I think not many will regret leaving behind. As in all other years preceding, it’s habit to want to pause and take inventory of what we’ve been through and see what we have in store for the coming year. I for one just want to get the new one started so I can implement changes in the simple things..such as just how I start the day. How I use my time, and how I face, and react to, daily situations. Hell, just how I organize and run my home is an area that needs enough work to keep me buried for months.
Screw the world stage at this point. If I’m not willing to deal with my own here and now, then the rest doesn’t matter very much does it? We all have to make those choices. What happens out there can influence what happens in our personal space, but if you don’t make the effort and choices to change how you deal with each breath you take, then there’s no chance of that influencing what happens out there. Just once I would like to feel like I can make changes to myself and my personal environment without the invasion of all those outside influences beating the door down to rob me of the motivation. I want to start influencing out there for a change, but it has to start inside first. In my mind, in my heart and in my home.
Yeah we all know that in theory, but how many of us actually do it….do it with conviction, with motivation and without letting other people and other forces having some small part to play? It’s damn hard, but it can be done. You decide, you implement, you tell everyone else to f**k off until you’re done.
All that being said, I want to wish each and every one of you a New Year of Love, Faith and Laughter. If you have those three things, it doesn’t matter what lands in your lap. You can deal with it.
The commissars of the O-ministration just don’t seem to get it. You mess with the fucking bull, you’ll get the horns. As we’re sure you know, the Ogabe regime, not in the least bit respectful of the separation of powers (or any other inconvenient part of the Constitution, for that matter), decided to utterly ignore the fact that they couldn’t get their Knee-cappin’ Trade bullshit through Congress and tasked the EPA with enforcing it anyway.
The Republic of Texas told them to go fuck themselves. Not at all happy about this lack of subservience to the Ogabe Politburo, the EPA then sent Governor Perry a nastygram stating that if Texas wouldn’t obey their un-Constitutional power grab, then the EPA would just take over the issuing of permits in Texas.
To which Governor Perry, undoubtedly getting a bit tired of DC and Ogabe’s regime’s inability to understand plain English, replied that they can, once again, go fuck themselves.
“The EPA’s misguided plan paints a huge target on the backs of Texas agriculture and energy producers by implementing unnecessary, burdensome mandates on our state’s energy sector, threatening hundreds of thousands of Texas jobs and imposing increased living costs on Texas families,” Katherine Cesinger, a Perry spokeswoman, said in an e-mailed statement.
The American Petroleum Institute chimed in as well:
“In unprecedented fashion, EPA is now coercing some states to relinquish their authority and is directly usurping state regulatory authority in Texas,”
Yeah, well. Ogabe and his commissars will just have to find out how well “coercing” works on Texans, won’t they? They could start off by asking Santa Anna, the “Napoleon of the Americas”, how fucking well that worked out for him.
Come and get ‘em, assholes. Here’s the thing, you puling socialist sucknozzles, y’all need us a whole lot fucking more than we need YOU.
We graciously let you yankee assholes join us in 1845, mainly because we felt more than a little bit sorry for you on account of what a bunch of effete, whining pussies you were and how much you were in dire need of a firm hand to stiffen up your non-existent spines, and we can sure as fuck throw you right out again unless you quit trying to mess with your betters.
Seriously, Governor Perry. You already once mentioned the word “secession”. We think it’s time you drag it out again to remind the worthless lemmings up north that you weren’t kidding. Let them fucking freeze in the dark while we down here enjoy the fruits of our labor and the land that G-d gave to us.
And Mayor Bloomies’ incompetent non-response (not made any easier if increasingly convincing reports about a deliberate act of “work slow” sabotage by the unions turn out to be true):
You know, we kinda thought that NYC had gotten literally buried in a snowy hell of truly Biblical proportions, after all it took from Sunday to Wednesday for the city to get the situation somewhat under control, and then we read that the total amount of snow dropped on the city was, wait for it, two feet.
Two frickin’ feet? Really now? SERIOUSLY???
Where His Imperial Majesty comes from, that’s the kind of snowfall that we call “a minor inconvenience” and have cleared off the roadways in half a day or so. One pass with the plow and you’re good to go.
So we’re going to have to throw a bogus flag on that number, because there is just no frickin’ way that a city in a civilized country can be turned into a disaster zone for three days by two pathetic feet of fluffy, frozen water. Somebody give us the real number, please.
And their bosses sent to death row: Selfish Sanitation Department bosses from the snow-slammed outer boroughs ordered their drivers to snarl the blizzard cleanup to protest budget cuts — a disastrous move that turned streets into a minefield for emergency-services vehicles, The Post has learned. Yeah, well, it’s all harmless fun and justified protesting until

Liberal college assholes still hate you. DrewM, from whom I purloined the article, sums it up nicely: Some guy named Colman McCarthy, who “directs the Center for Teaching Peace in Washington and teaches courses on nonviolence at four area universities and two high schools”, crams so much stupid into this 800 word piece it has

We mean, really. It’s not that we don’t respect his right as a citizen to desire a close encounter of the fourth kind with Mitt Romney’s private parts but, seriously, his addiction to use any excuse imaginable to put up a post with Mittens’ mug shot has gone beyond pathological. Somehow, anything going on in
