Just Because It Makes Me Laugh........


Okay, this is not in any way meant to be a political statement, I just think it's funny. So watch these clips, in the order in which I posted them, and get a much needed laugh (we all need one with the economy in the toilet the way it is because of the Repu -- I mean, um, watch these):

Don't make the little one angry, she's scary when she's angry......

She's still angry:

Going to Iraq.

This morning in church, a husband and wife went up to be prayed for by the elders. See, he is being deployed to Iraq for 6 months, leaving behind his wife and 8 month old son.

I sat there and became very angered. This man is being sent to fight in an unnecessary war started by a very small man who needed his HUGE ego fed.

Hmmm, I guess I am hostile sometimes!!

Do your research people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I have a new pet peeve, and no, it's not people who start their sentences with the word so.

It's e-mails that are sent out that are either: 1. Not True At All, or 2. Were Once True, Years Ago!

Why do these e-mails continue to circle the web, over and over and over and over and over.....?

Whenever I get an e-mail that I wonder about remotely, I go to snopes.com. Snopes.com is a great site to find out what's true if you don't want to put the time into doing the research yourself! Just type in the subject of your e-mail, and voila, you get the facts, without sending on to someone who will send it on to someone who will send it on to someone. I mean, 50 years from now we will still be getting the same e-mail that Barack Obama doesn't salute the flag (it was actually the National Anthem when he didn't place his hand over his heart, hmmm, I don't do that either)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ArDGDkp5DNE, Osama Bin Laden owns Citibank, or that Dunkin Donuts employees celebrated the terrorist attacks on 9/11!

I mean, come on people, check out the facts!

New Cellular Phone law, hmmm, how dumb is this??


The new cell phone law will be in effect July 1, 2008. I fully support the law insomuch as I don't think people should be driving while holding the phone and talking on it. But why should we talk on the phone at all while driving? I mean, can't you get to Starbucks without making an important phone call? Of course, I am just as guilty of this as others, but I don't think having a Bluetooth will make a difference. You still have to dial your phone, and can by law, and you're still carrying on a converstion which is distracting no matter whether you're holding the phone or not.


But get this, and this is the most ridiculous part, it's not illegal to text and drive. Don't hold your phone and talk with one hand while driving with the other, that's too distracting, but by all means, text away. Hold it with one hand and press the letters with the other, don't forget to check your e-mail while you're at it. And oh, don't you have some important thoughts to add to your blog?? What better time than when you are just killing time driving. Wait, did I just say "killing"? Let me share the exact wording on the CA.gov website which lets you know with this new law that it's A-okay to text, as long as it does not distract you from driving your 2 ton killing machine, of course:


"Q: Does the new “hands-free” law allow drivers 18 and over to text message while driving?A: The law does not specifically prohibit that, but an officer can pull over and issue a citation to a driver of any age if, in the officer’s opinion, the driver was distracted and not operating the vehicle safely. Sending text messages while driving is unsafe at any speed and is strongly discouraged."


Well gee, at least it's strongly discouraged.......
