Currently generating a new wish list, since all my wishes were granted over the Holidays.

That Bush Bounce

As Mr. Atrios over at Eschaton persists to state that Bush is enjoying a huge bounce, he fails to notice that there is a new more sobering poll out there.

Here are some highlights from the wonderful article:

A new Gallup poll shows that, for the first time, Bush’s approval rating has fallen below 50% among total fucking morons, and now stands at 44%. This represents a dramatic drop compared to a poll taken just last December, when 62% of total fucking morons expressed support for the president and his policies.

This tidbit may resonate with Mr. Atrios a bit more, since he is such a big fan of Rick Santorum:

Faltering approval ratings for the president among a group once thought to be a reliable source of loyal support gives Republicans one more reason to be nervous about the upcoming mid-term elections. “If we can’t depend on the support of total fucking morons,” says Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA), “then we’ve got a big problem. They’re a key factor in our electoral strategy, and an important part of today’s Republican coalition.

My challenge to anyone out there, including Mr. Atrios, show me some polls that show Bush going in the right direction.

Here's something to get you all started....

Chicago, Unpacking, Birthday, and Global Warming Deniers

To all my Philly liberals and friends, if anyone is checking this or still reads this, I wanted to let everyone know that Jen, Bella and I made it to Chicago alright and are in the process of unpacking. I would say we are about 95% done.

Taking a break today since it's my 25th birthday. Got some cool gifts this morning, Jen got me some nice books: Cooking with Beer, Beers of the World Book, and two books from The Art of Being a Man Series: How to Mow the Lawn and How to Keep House.

My parents got me a Sony CyberShot DSC H2 Digital Camera. I know it's not as nice as Albert's or Matt's, but it should do. It will definitely be more than suitable for posting some pictures of Bella, Chicago, and whatever else I encounter.

Tonight we get to go out to David Burke's Prime House.

For my one political note, it seems some people who are visiting my site because a post I made related to a South Park Episode called ManBearPig. The episode fun of Al Gore and his global warming exploits. It seems some people keep on citing entirely false articles such as this and this. The second article almost made me throw up, the author seems to think because of the way certain people such as ABC news, celebrites, or other people argue about global warming that man-made emissions must not have anything to do with the problem. He fails to acknowledge that not one credible scientist in the World has disputed the research used by Al Gore. Not one credible scientist in the World has suggested that we do not have an impact on the warming of the earth. Yet because he has a feeling that because of the way certain people their case somewhat innaccurately that all scientific research must be thrown out. I only wish I could argue that illogically and almost feel as if I am since none of what I just wrote really makes sense to me. Although I do feel that I have proved my point that the guy wrote the is a total and utter idiot. Since I feel that way it most be true.

Editor's note: That was a wonderful tangent, anyway since not too many people check this site as of this day, I will probably send out an email updating all you philly people. Hope all is well.

Let's See....

So many things on the brain today and I can't think of one coherent thing to write about. Here's a laundry List:

  • Moving back to Chicago next Thursady and although there isn't much packing left to do, I still feel somewhat overwhelmed. The fact that we lost the key to the Cargo carrier that goes on the top of J's car is adding a bit to the overwhelm-e-ment(yes I know I made up the word

  • I'm feeling especially negative today about the amount of total idiots there are in this country. First of all Carbon Dioxide is a pollutant., How is the president allowed to disregard laws that he himself has executed into law?????, When did reporting on government's breach of the public trust become treason??? There's plenty more but I don't have the heart for it right now

  • Ok fine, one more to add to the political column. Can we please just call bullshit on certain aspects of the conservative movement. Will the real conservatives please stand up because the people that they have put into power are no conservatives. This in no way acquits the majority of democrats who are in office right now who either have their heads so far up their asses or they are complicit with the entrenchment of power that they will not stand up for regular people who can't give them their maximum quartely donations

  • Law school begins August 15, That means I will have a month and half to relax once we are moved back to Chicago. At least I won't have to waste my time hoping the Cubs make the playoffs.

  • That's about it for now, especially any of the philly folk, I promise I will try and keep this up to date with whatever is on my mind, etc.

    Volcano the size of Washington D.C. Disovered

    That was the headline on CNN.

    The real question is which one possesses more hot air?

    What's the deal with all the Obama hating?

    My greatest fear when Barack Obama took the podium at the 2004 Democratic National Convention was that it would paint a big bullseye on his back for the right to aim at. I was proud of the words that Obama spoke that night, it gave me hope that there would soon be a leader in the Democratic party, a voice for Democrats to rally around. As he was speaking I thought in the back of my mind that with a guy like this, the republicans were going to come out extra hard and try and dig for skeletons in his closet.

    Little did I know that so called "progressives" and people that I thought wanted to move this country forward have decided that he's not progressive enough(read the comments) or that he's not using his media presence to advance the democratic message(whatever message that may be), or he isn't thinking big enough.

    All the comments under these posts make me want to scream,"HE'S ONLY BEEN IN OFFICE FOR LESS THAN TWO STINKING YEARS!!!!

    He would be a fool to come into the senate and start a big racket. Remember, if you are a democrat and go against the grain you are a trouble maker or an obstructor, if you are a republican you become a maverick.

    Now I am off subject, but seriously can we stop with Obama bashing it is of no help, there are much bigger fish to fry. No he may not be the savior that he was built up to be, but I believe he will be a strong voice in the years to come, despite what the whackos who call themselves progressive but really only want things to be exactly the way that they want them. I'm sorry but things just can't be that way you have to compromise. These people make me feel like my head is going to explode. They are the problem with this party, not Barack Obama.

    That's all.

    Editor's note: The whackos I speak of are those commenters in the posts, not the bloggers. Although Matt Stoller seems to be taking things a little out of context in proving his point

    John Cornyn: Pro Man/Box Turtle Unions

    The Marriage Protection Amendment hoopla reminded of this quote by Senator Cornyn:

    "It does not affect your daily life very much if your neighbor marries a box turtle. But that does not mean it is right. Now you must raise your children up in a world where that union of man and box turtle is on the same legal footing as man and wife. "

    Who the hell voted for this a-hole or a better question is why is he anti-Box Turtle, what did they ever do to him?

    Only in America!

    Here is a list of some of the problems facing our great nation:
  • 1. A war with no end in sight
  • 2. A rising federal deficit
  • 3. A slowing economy
  • 4. An increasing divide between the rich and the poor
  • 5. Many Americans cannot afford adequate Health care for their families or themselves
  • 6. An education system that is failing a majority of our children

    Just to name a few. There are many more, and what do the Republicans who control our Congress decide to focus their attention on, GAY MARRIAGE or THE FEDERAL MARRIAGE AMENDMENT, as they like to call it. Let's put aside the fact that this is bigotry at its worst, let's put aside the fact that many of the Republicans who are the largest supporters have had more failed marriages or mistresses than they can count on one hand. Is this really an efficient use of government time?

    Would a real conservative government meddle into the private lives of their constituents? Isn't this the big government interference that we have heard conservatives yell about before.

    Democrats need to stand up against this bigotry, throw it back in their faces for the next election. I can't believe that the majority of Americans believe that this is what their elected officials should be using taxpayer's dollars to debate this amendment. Will the Democrats grow some balls, we will have to wait till November to find out.
