Well I survived False Patriotism Day. Don't get me wrong, its sad that 3,000 people died that day, but lets put it in perspective. 1. Iraq War: 4,474 (and slowly creeping) 2. Afghanistan War: 1,776 (and not so creeping) 3. Dead due to drunk drivers: Approximately 130,000 since 2001 4. Dead due to lack of … Continue reading False Patriotism Day
I say here and now that this whole bailout is bullshit its a last desperate gasp of the corrupt administration and rich backers. I have been reading some articles and there are non banking institutions who are claiming money from the government (including Rudy Guiliani's company wanting money to help with the bailout). Not a single … Continue reading Bailout bullshit
Rolling the dice
There are many things wrong with where I work, and from what I am told those wrong things extend to the public accounting profession in general. Its not that they are necessarily doing something illegal (although the example I will talk about later is definitely against the tax code), its just the greed and drive … Continue reading Rolling the dice
I was watching t.v. and saw that they finally approved Plan B. I am very happy to see it, anything to help prevent unwanted pregnancies is good, especially if its not invasive abortion. However, I noticed several fundie/conservative groups are up in arms about it. Now, don't get me wrong, I don't necessarily blame people … Continue reading Hypocrisy
I was watching the news. Evidently Bush is passing a tax cut for 70Billion dollars through the House and may pass the Senate today. The Republicans are touting it as a victory. I am just confused on why we are cutting taxes when the government is spending an ever increasing amount on military and "Homeland … Continue reading WTF?

We don't know the real story, we have a few cell phone communications, by no means could we possibly know that the way shit went down, actually went down that way. So in my opinion its about as truthful to … Continue reading United 93
This morning I got up and started channel surfing. Of course there are a ton of religious programs. Four of the programs I watched stated we are in a religious war and we need to fight it out. One of them (Jimmy Swaggert) said the Koran is not written about love and that we need … Continue reading WTF?
http://www.earthtimes.org/articles/show/2255.html An Army Captain was found guilty of killing a wounded Iraqi they mistakenly thought was an insurgent. Now it wasn't even that the Iraqi was killed accidently in the first salvo. They had stopped the car, killed one person and the wounded Iraqi was laying there bleeding. The Captain walked up, put the pistol … Continue reading Fucked Up
Fucked up religious right wing republicans
This morning (after having woke up at 415am) I was watching tv. A scene for the 700 Club came on and Pat Robertson was talking about President Bush helping America. It then dawned on me how fucked up that was. Nobody who claims to be christian should be supporting this war. I believe distinctly the … Continue reading Fucked up religious right wing republicans
