If our original plans had gone thru, I might have been there for Aqua-Palooza.
“You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.” *

File under Week 32 of 2009.
I had a great time golfing with my friend Fred last Sunday. I also had a nice surprise visit with Spazticus and Reality Check on Saturday. Thanks again to all.
Anytime you happen to be in Ann Arbor, MI (as I was yesterday), you MUST go to Zingerman’s Deli. I had the best sandwich EVAR!
These are some of the must click headlines of the past week:
Cubs in First place after sweeping Reds. That didn’t last very long.
Fiery crash probed by cops kills 8.
Lance Armstrong Third at Tour De Wimps. The guy who won seems to be a bit of a dick.
And here is the past week’s list of Fucktards of the Week:
Otty Sanchez, (Graphic content warning: click only if you can read about unspeakable crimes against infants). Here is a little follow up to the original story. (Also quite graphic and loaded with fucktardary).
Daniel Patrick Boyd and his sons and buddies are Fucktards for planning Jihad from a sleepy Carolina home.
Cameron Brown didn’t want to pay child support, so he threw his four year old off a cliff. I’d be more than happy to do the same to him.
Roddell Vereen is a Fucktard for committing buggery with a horse. Repeatedly. She shoulda shot him. He will be back, cause once a horse is stump broke…
While I have had enough of the Michael Jackson issue, I guess I have to list Dr. Conrad Murray as a Fucktard. He is going down.
Baby theif Julie Corey is clearly a Fucktard. She “carved” a baby from her friends womb and tried to pass it off as her own. Oh, the friend died. How would you like to be that kid later in life?
Here is some news that came as no surprise: Texting raises risk of a crash 23 fold. Tell everyone you know. Here is a little more evidence that should be used to ban any cell phone or texting activity while driving.
Whaddya think about the Beer Summit last night?
Joe Biden had Buckler (hehe). I am CERTAIN that man should not drink alcohol, so good call Joe.
Enjoy your freedoms and happy healthy weekends to all.

Blue M&Ms May Reduce Spinal Injuries
CNN (July 28) — The same blue food dye found in M&Ms and Gatorade could be used to reduce damage caused by spine injuries, offering a better chance of recovery, according to new research.
Researchers at the University of Rochester Medical Center found that when they injected the compound Brilliant Blue G (BBG) into rats suffering spinal cord injuries, the rodents were able to walk again, albeit with a limp.

AN OPEN LETTER TO
Dear President Obama:
You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.
You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.
You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support.
You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.
You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.
You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don’t understand it at its core.
You scare me because you lack humility and ‘class’, always blaming others.
You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail.
You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the ‘blame America ‘ crowd and deliver this message abroad.
You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.
You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.
You scare me because you prefer ‘wind mills’ to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.
You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world.
You scare me because you have begun to use ‘extortion’ tactics against certain banks and corporations.
You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spe nding proposals.
You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.
You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient.
You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.
You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys, O’Relllys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.
You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.
Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.

My daughter turns 25 years old next week. She closed on her very own home today. If you visit her site, please be nice. She may bite! I’m proud of my spoiled rotten daughter!
