    And I have made up my mind that those days are gone

    Both Arizona and Florida, bastions of intellectual thinking have implemented drug testing for welfare recipients.  They will tell you that if you have enough money to buy drugs you don’t need government assistance   Sounds reasonable right?  Ah silly you, listening to our sound byte society.  Since 2009 Arizona has tested 87000 people.  Yes.  87,000.  At a cost of $30-$40 per test.  They caught exactly one drug abuser.  One.  So they spent upwards of $3,000,000 to save $560 by not paying that one drug addict.  Well done idiots.  Who wins?  The drug test manufacturer and the drug test company who got fat contracts from a bunch of stupid old white people who spend too much…

    Garden gnomes on the grassy knoll

    No, I don’t know why that amuses me so much.  I think it was the Full Monty where the guy was taking care of his garden gnomes and somebody stole them and had them dance around while some other guy was at an interview.  I remember laughing hysterically and not being able to stop.  Because they’re garden gnomes. I don’t believe there were two shooters.  I don’t believe there was a conspiracy.  I think a nut with a gun killed Kennedy.  He got lucky and did maximum damage with two shots.  I’ve read most of the conspiracy stuff.  I don’t believe it.  Oswald did it and the world changed that…

Am I the only one that finds it curious that these cardinals are being deposed before getting on a plane to the Vatican to vote on the new Pope?  Isn’t there something fundamentally wrong with the Catholic church at this point? I am seeing such incredible stupidity right now that I just wonder what the hell is wrong with people.  A classic from Mr. Stewart who is sadly a better source of news than the Faux news station in this country.

    Santiago died because he had no code

    I’m going to say it, because it needs to be said.  I think Christopher Dorner was right.  His method was wrong.   I am willing to bet the other cop did kick the suspect, his report was not a false one and he was wrongfully dismissed. Unless you’ve lived in Southern California and paid attention you don’t know how bad the LAPD’s history really is.  I will never forget, and I bet Old Title Guy remembers, the football player from USC who got picked up on a drunk in public and ended up hanged under the care of the LAPD.  I remember the kid had a 3.5 GPA and had…
