Fix It Yourself!

July 19th, 2012 . by Cary

This is going to be the fault of the US taxpayers, isn’t it? It’s not going to be the responsibility of the people who knowingly and illegally crossed into the US, worked jobs illegally, and had children here, is it?

It’s never about personal responsibility and accountability for your own actions, is it? Even if you have more kids than you can support it’s not your fault, is it? “Somebody” needs to take care of the problem, don’t they?

Here’s where I probably piss off a few people and make new enemies.

Stay in your country. Do not bring your small children here illegally and then hope they can deal with the issue when they grow up. Keep your private parts private unless you can support the result of sharing your private parts. We, the People, are sick and tired of being blamed for the woes of the world. Got a problem of your own creation? DEAL WITH IT! Do not blame anyone else, you caused it, you figure it out. Grow up, and take responsibility for your actions. Most five-year-olds in this country already know the difference between right and wrong – have the sense of a five year old, at least, when you are making life decisions.

And quit blaming the US and expecting them to help you.

Loooooooong Day

May 13th, 2010 . by Cary

Had a long day today – Fox channel 10 here in Phoenix did a remote at the store and we were out bright and early to get a representative sampling of the toy tester events set up for “background”. Here’s the video (I don’t know how long the video will stay up, so enjoy it while you can) – see if you can pick out a former Marine being helpful and watchful…

Then, I get home, eat dinner, watch CSI and The Mentalist (taped versions, since we’re about two weeks behind anything live) and I check my e-mail. Opened this one, and about died laughing, only because the Air Force never really had any kind of sense of humor when I dealt with them. Maybe it was just me?

Air Force Chief of Staff: Mr. President, we have perfected an invisibility cloak for Air Force One.
Obama: Really? That’s amazing!
Air Force Chief of Staff: Yes sir, it is. Will you be going on her maiden cloaked flight?
Obama: Wouldn’t miss it for the world!
Air Force Chief of Staff: Have a nice trip, sir.

Now, it’s time for bed. I’m tired! Working all day, laughing all night…

Chat ya later…

Thursday Round Up

October 30th, 2008 . by Cary

This week, I’m going to see if I can group like subjects together. Since I haven’t surfed before I started writing these, there’s no telling where this will lead… and no, Blogrolling still isn’t working right.

Jenn joins the call for the tape to be released.
Wealth Redistribution explained … on Bloviating Zeppelin.
Political Pistachio explains why Obama’s plan of wealth redistribution won’t work.

Under the sub-category of “Nothing New Under The Sun” comes this video courtesy of Pitchpull.

Mary gives us the low-down on Scott Higginbotham, an author worth finding on the shelves…
