I will be brief. Here in the U.S., when a traffic sign says “keep moving change lanes later” that means Continue reading

I am warning you now: this is a post that somewhat angrily responds to the attempts by President Obama to verbally bully people into agreeing with him about gun control legislation. If that offends you, too bad.  Continue reading

Holy Crap, March Is Here Already

Yeah, been a while.  It’s okay. I’m here now.

Kinda like the 2012 Mayan calendar “end of the world” thing, the date for the start of the much lamented sequestration has come, and the country has some how managed not to fall immediately into ruin. If President Obama believed the warnings he was using during his recent fear-mongering campaign, he must be shocked to see that there have not been immediate massive firings of teachers, police officers and fire fighters.

A Mild Rant about Football

Posted in Rant, Sports with tags , , , , , on September 1, 2012 by Xajow

My apologies to those for whom ‘football’ is the name of the game we Americans call soccer. I am about to complain about football, and I do not want you to think I am complaining about your version of football.

I enjoy watching football. Or at least, I used to. I am not so sure any more. Why? Because the rule changes are starting to make less and less sense to me. Continue reading
