It’s the Spending, Stupid

There is a lot of talk going on about the “fiscal cliff” and raising taxes. What few if any in the U.S. government seem to be willing to say is that this notion that Congress needs to take this so-called “balanced approach” to solving the problem of debt caused by Congress’s excessive spending, is a lot of nonsense. The government does not need more revenue. What it needs is to cut spending. And putting a lot of weight on the tax revenue side of things is not balanced at all. It is unbalanced, but it is also an attempt to misdirect the attention of the people. Continue reading

What I Would Rather Have Said

I just had to apologize to someone because I dared to ask when a project that affects my job (in a significant way) was going to be done. The reply to my initial request carried the polite but annoyed tone that indicated answering my request was a pain because I had no business asking about the project in the first place.

Absences

Dear reader, I know you are yearning for my words. Unfortunately other obligations and my mood have been nonconducive to producing posts for this blog. But I will be making a few posts over the next week or two. They may be sparse, but posted they will be.

Next week, I will be out of town but I will bring an old laptop with me, and will hopefully post a few comments. Not about my trip, mind you. That would only bore you, as it is neither BDSM nor politics related.

And as we head into October, I may be rather busy during the month with a local project (again, neither BDSM nor politics related).

So now you know. And knowing is half the battle. Whatever the f— that means.

Some people are way too strict. Apparently a valedictorian is not being allowed to have her diploma, because said “hell” in her valedictorian speech. Continue reading

I Need a Proofreader

If you follow this blog by e-mail, you probably got the post immediately previous to this one in your e-mail inbox. And if you read that, you possibly noticed it had a number of grammatical errors. I have fixed them (at least the ones I noticed after posting) in the official post online, so please read that version instead. Thank you.
