Welcome everyone and anyone to the 3 18 11 edition of Flush 'em Friday!
This week I would like to flush:

1. The USC and Louisville men's basketball teams for completely messing up my bracket predictions!

2. My healthcare provider for "losing" some disks with some of my personal information on them!

3. Anti-war Democratic Rep. Lynn Woolsey  for being foolish enough to think you can "give peace a chance" with the likes of the Taliban.

4. The POTUS for worrying about bullying rather than world bullies like Gadhafi.

5. The POTUS for golfing and vacationing more than me.

6. Los Angeles voters for re-electing the same group of fools that screwed things up.

7. People driving upscale import cars while talking on their cell-phones. I don't mind or envy the cars, I do mind the erratic driving. Don't you people have Bluetooth?

OK, that's it for me this week but I am still waiting for you to put in your two cents.

Liberals Love to Scape Goat

The ScapegoatImage via Wikipedia
I work with a lot of bleeding heart liberals and one of the frustrating parts of any conversation is the way they frame their questions. I think it is where they say, "But don't you think..." insert some phrase like, "Babies deserve health care? It's not their fault that they were born into poverty." While it is true that it is not the babies fault that it was born into poverty, it isn't mine either. 

There is the problem. Liberals love to set up a straw man scape goat in the form of the greedy, malicious, set on everyone else as they climb to the top, capitalistic rich people (usually white). Wealthy white liberals love to point  at all other (usually conservative) white and declare, "Those white rich people, not us". 

Well, I am tired of the liberal nonsense. There is a difference between a right and a right to pursue. The constitution speaks of the right to pursue happiness. Nowhere is happiness, healthcare, minimum wages, or much else guaranteed. Happiness is not guaranteed. I think our founding fathers knew that even if you got what you where pursuing you still might not be happy. But, the liberal dogma of "everybody deserves" demands that someone arbitrates who has too much and must redistribute from one person to another. That is where all dictatorships are born, in the egocentric heart and mind of those who think they will solve all the problems by making everything equal.

Think about it.

No Tax Tuesday: I Just Don't Like Taxes

Happy No Tax Tuesday. Yes, I know I must pay some taxes but, I just want some relief.
The truth is I just don't see any positive results from the taxes I already pay.

If you have some more silly, dumb, stupid or even questionable taxes...forward them on.

Who's the bully now?

Bullying on IRFE in March 5, 2007, the first c...Image via Wikipedia
It's not that I don't know that bullying is an issue. I work with disciple at a Middle School! I can't tell you the number of phone calls I have had with concerned parents when it comes to bullying. So, you might think that when I read about President Obama speaking out against bullying I would be quite pleased. Actually, I think the President should be more concerned about global bullies like that thug Gadhafi  in the middle east then his future voting block now on middle school campuses.

I have enough trouble with the micro managing knuckle heads in the local district offices who make decisions based on how things would affect their careers rather than what is right or wrong or even what would ultimately teach a particular student what is right or wrong. Why doI need the federal government reaching its' slimy hands way down to us? 

But, hats off to the President for taking such a strong stand on such a crucial global issue. This is a beautiful example of how a President can influence society. It reminds me of the Clinton's anti smoking smoke screen. Taking a stand against smoking and bullying sounds goods and who would disagree except smokers and bullies?  I don't notice any decrease in smokers. I just find them more annoying.

Finally, isn't the current President the biggest bully of them all? He wants to "re-distribute" everyone else's "wealth". He has taken over 1/6 of the economy with Obama-care. Do I have a choice under his plan? Is that really a choice? What are community organizer who hire and direct groups of thugs, I mean "protesters", to go an assail and hassle an opponent into submission but bullies by another name? I ask you, who's the bully?
