Haven’t been here for awhile. Too much work work. Not enough time to paint or rant but now I’m so pissed off; must rant.
My latest aggravations:
- Politics – Jeeeesus, unending, unrelenting bullshit. I can’t stand those prop ads that give a little snippet. Always the same from both sides. If you don’t vote YES or NO as the case may be, all the firefighters, police, teachers, etc will quit. Your taxes will skyrocket, you will be homeless for 3 generations. Meg what’s her name came on the radio. Her spiel – 25 out of the last 30 years the California legislators have failed to pass a budget on time. If she is elected governor, she will PROPOSE all legislators forgo pay, perks, and per diem until the budget is passed. Uh, Meg, what do you think the chances of that being passed are?
- Green bullshit – at work they have signs patting themselves on the back for switching from styrofoam to paper cups. So now we will have less plastic? Nope the plastic companies don’t call up the cafeteria to get the buying schedule so they keep producing at the same level. Ya, ya, ya, “well we have to start somewhere … if nobody does it …” Keep chanting your warm and fuzzy mantra and watch the environment. What should be done is make everyone bring a damn cup to get their own drink. Novel idea. Anyhow, there is one HUGE overriding factor for the environment that seems to be overlooked – the population is GROWING but the earth is NOT. Now China is talking about relaxing the one child rule because they need more workers to make more money. In fact all the builders and other manufacturers need growth to sell more product. Just think if we had half the population there would be half the number of cars and half the number of people to throw their plastic Big Mac trash out the car window (like I do trying to kill those damn pooping ducks).
