Look at me now, baby! That’s usually a phrase someone would say when they’ve achieved something that no one thought could be done or was, at least, unlikely. For example, I got my master’s degree. I, for one, never thought it would happen, but it did. I know several people who figured I’d drop out of college before getting my bachelor’s, let alone my MBA. So, that’s where I would say “look at me now!” However, this is a different story attached to the phrase.
Congress…. When I think of Congress, I think of the opposite of progress. You know, pros and cons. So, when I see in the news that Congress decided to cut the benefits and pensions of active and retired military, I start to think to myself that those selfish people in Congress have their priorities wrong. I used the term “people” because this is a family friendly blog… well, I try to keep it family friendly.
There is a lot of tension in the nation right now. The government is failing, they are on a partial shut down, the deadline for the debt ceiling is looming just days away, VA disability payments likely will not go out next month, federally subsidized state programs are closing, and the food stamp program went offline when Xerox had a “power outage.”
Dale Gavlak of the AP is reporting that the chemical weapons explosion in Syria was not the work of the government, but rather was an accident caused by the rebels. They claim the gas was provided to them by the Saudis and was intended for rebel, more specifically al Qaeda, to use against the Syrian military and/or government. However, while transporting the weapons, the rebels set them off accidentally. According to Dale Gavlak, most of the rebels didn’t know what they were carrying and didn’t have training on transporting chemical weapons.

The higher you go in the corporate structure, the smaller your balls become.
On my way into work this morning, I started thinking. I was listening to one of my favorite radio shows, Glenn Beck, and he was talking about how the liberals are taking over states. They came out of California and invaded Colorado and look at what happened. Now they’re moving into Texas.
There is an ancient Greek phrase Molon Labe. Two words that say a lot more than you may think. Pronounced moˈlon laˈve means “Come and take them”. It is a classical expression of defiance reportedly spoken by King Leonidas I in response to the Persian army’s demand that the Spartans surrender their weapons at the Battle of Thermopylae.
It seems that every time some moron decides to go shooting people, the loons on the left go after the guns. That’s expected. It always goes that way.
My argument used to be the criminals will get the guns anyway. The only people gun control hurts are the law abiders. However, this time the guy bought the guns legally, as well as the ammo. Obviously, one of the many laws he broke was that he lied about his mental illness on the gun application. So what do we do? Do we change the laws to better control that sort of thing?
