Loose Cannon Fire: 6 25 11

Cannon fire in Burton, OhioImage by joiseyshowaa via Flickr
Avast ya scurvy bloggers! Fire at will!!

How does this "character flaw" not affect the way Weiner has done his job?
$50 says he was Tweeting on while on the job.
Would most other people be able to keep their job if caught sexting and lying?
Does being honest and being a good politician have anything to do with each other? It should...

(To a lady defending Weiner) I'll bet you'd feel differently if it was your spouse.
The problem with people like you is you make an excuse for men and then call us dumb.
He is the politician who voted to rip us off via the banks, wall street, etc.!
Isn't his Twitter account for political purposes. Using his political status to get off is bit more than just being horny.
Being a grown up tells me you think you know more than you actually do ;)

On the other end of the country we have a Weiner trying to be cyber Flash Gordon but Palin's emails are the hot topic.
This is a perfect example of the leftist media on a witch hunt.
To the people who wasted tax payers money to do this. Thanks for wasting money again.

Craig Huey would never put out this video, true as it is.
Jaice Hahn's people have already attack Huey with the usual liberal crap about favoring the rich and all.
What worries me is that the people who would vote for Jerry Brown and gavin Newson would vote for Hahn too.
Janice Hahn's add is like a schoolyard bully telling one kid that some other kid doesn't like them. You know, "'Those Republicans hate people of color." Wake up people!

Two reasons (at least). For minorities falling behind educationally.
#1. Making every student take Algebra, even in 8th grade. Stupid idea. Does Japan or Europe do that? No. I am in education and the only time I have used Algebra in the last 30 plus years is when I have stood in for a fellow teacher for a class or two. The only thing forcing every child to take Algebra does is make many feel stupid.
#2. The Democratic led government is pricing higher education right out of the reach of working class people. See the latest Democratic budget for California. Soon only the rich and entitled will be able to afford college.

  • My (now ex) cable company for charging double for HD TV. (And the government for putting so many taxes on cable.)
  • AT&T for being a Terrible Telephone Tele-company.

No Tax Tuesday or Doofenshmirtz on Taxes 6 21 11 Edition

California State Senate chamberImage via Wikipedia
How many times do people have to say it before the politicians hear it. NO MORE TAXES!!!

Yet, what is Jerry "Moonbeam" Brown really trying to do? Continue high taxes and ask for more. What does the President really want to do? Raise more taxes, redistribute your wealth. What does Congress want to do? Raise your taxes. 

Career politicians don't want to help people, they just want to manipulate them and exercise control. It is not about helping people, it is about controlling them. That is why politicians like Brown, Lieu and Janice Hahn are more concerned with keeping programs that can buy votes than actually helping the economy and providing true lasting jobs and stability. For some common sense ideas see Craig Huey @

If the California legislature really wanted to balance the budget and if Jerry Brown was truly trying to cut spending he would consider the expenses that suck the life out of state. Jerry vetoed the Democratic the budget authored by Democrats and rammed through by Democrats, which under the wise old law would not have been passed because it could not muster a 2/3 majority. Yet, Jerry Brown blames Republicans for the budgets obvious failings. Hello McFly! That's politics, blame your opponents for your failings. Who voted in these financially and truth challenged Doofenshmirtz?

It's Good to be a Dad

Photo taken by me as an example of a stay at h...Image via Wikipedia
Yesterday my two oldest sons took the whole family out to breakfast, and paid! Thanks fellas, it was great! I love going out to breakfast. But, going out with the whole family and enjoying it, that was truly good. 

I'd like to thank my father for a few things he taught me. Not really by saying it, but by living it.

My dad taught me to always do what was right no matter what anyone else around you says or does.

Dad also taught me to treat everyone fairly and with respect. Dad never said much about equality and stuff like that, he just lived as if everyone was the same. It is more than just referring to people as Sir or Ma'am or shaking their hand and looking them in the eye. My parents moved a few times and dad had the same movers move them. What stuck with me is the way he talked to and treated the men who were moving us. He called them sir or by name. He remembered there children and asked specifically about them. Their race, color or job had zero effect on how dad spoke with them or treated them. And you could tell they knew my dad only saw them as men providing for their families. 

After my parents moved from the city to the mountains dad did some general contracting. Luis, who did the landscaping for dad was probably one of dad best friends. I would often come home from work and see them drinking ice tea and just talking. I don't think it was just about work. 

I once applied for a job and the contractor said, "Your his son! I'd do anything for him. You'll always get paid and he treats people right. If you're his son, your hired!"

Yesterday was Father's Day but today we go back to the business of truly being dads.
