There are times in life when you can do the right thing for your country.  When the cries of those regular people getting screwed by the government on a daily basis can’t be tuned out anymore, you must act.  And considering the two candidates we have to choose from, somebody has to step up to the plate.  Because, quite frankly, they both suck.

I have been waiting for a third option.  Hoping for another choice.  And so far, zip.  Well, my fellow Americans, someone has to step up to the plate.  And I am that someone.  Today, I am announcing my candidacy for President of the World United States.  I mean, I don’t think I can do any worse than McCain and Obama.

Ever since the Primaries were settled, I have been telling people that I probably wouldn’t vote, since I have no confidence in either candidate.  But I myself have always been pretty self-confident.  So there you go.  A candidate I can be confident about!

Since I am so confident I will win, I went ahead and offered my VP slot to Brian.  He said no.  Then I bought him a Dr. Pepper.  VP position filled.

I have to thank my buddy Norm for this one…

So I have been kicking this around in my head.  Check it out…

Roughly about a week ago I checked an email account that I haven’t used in a while.  In it there were several “friend requests” from some friends of mine for one of those social networks.  They had accumulated in there since I really don’t log into any of those sites much.  So I logged in to approve those friends, who know doubt by now thought I was dissing them (one had been in there close to 2 months).

After I went in there and got that done, I started clicking around.  And clicked around some more.  And then a couple more clicks on various things.  At that point I came across the profile of someone from my past.  We’re talking, like, a decade ago.  Six degrees of seperation.  Seriously.  Anyway, I briefly looked and saw what she had been up to, and gathered that she is married now with children and seems to be doing very well for herself.  Great to see.  And then I clicked on some other stuff, got distracted by something and that was it.  Kind of forgot about it.

So today I started thinking about emailing her a harmless hello.  And was about to do just that when I started having second thoughts.  I mean, we didn’t hate each other when things ended, did we?  Or at least I didn’t hate her.  Hmmm…  I honestly couldn’t tell you if things ended badly or not.  I think we were cool, and just went our separate ways.  But I’ve been wrong before.  God knows I’ve been wrong before.

So in that regard, I definitely wouldn’t want to stir up any bad memories.  And although there may have been some good memories, there were definitely some bad ones.  But a harmless hello?  Would it really be that bad?  I really have nothing to gain by saying hello.  I’d like to just to catch up.  And she is a married woman and I would not want to disrespect anyone.  But she is also an adult and I’m sure her husband wouldn’t care about a piddly email.  I don’t know.

I’m definitely leaning towards not emailing her now.  I haven’t really thought twice about it until another dork friend of mine wanted to get into my friend list today on that same website.  Don’t worry, Albert.  I’ll put you in there. :)   So I’m thinking I will just leave it alone.  Life has been just fine without communication with her.  What do you think?

I have been an Atlanta Braves fan since they sucked beyond belief back in the ’80s.  They were always on TBS and became my favorite team.  And through all those losing seasons I watched as I learned the game, there was that familiar, witty, sarcastic commentary from Skip Caray that made it all easier to accept.  Well, Mr. Caray passed away on Sunday in his sleep.  I’m shocked and saddened by this.  Not having Skip Caray around makes baseball that much less enjoyable.  No doubt his Pop greeted him at the pearly gates.

The man was good at what he did.  He knew his stuff and had many memorable great calls.  But I will never forget this one.  Quite possibly his greatest…

“The 2-1. Swung, line drive, left field! One run is in! Here comes Bream! Throw to the plate! He is … safe! Braves win! Braves win! Braves win! Braves win! Braves win!”

Rest in peace, Skip.  You will be missed.

This Snickers ad featuring Mr. T. was recently pulled because some morons consider it ‘homophobic’. Please. Are you telling me that only gay people do speed walking? Give me a break.


Homophobic? Nope. Funny? Hell yes!

The ad was being aired in the U.K., but apparently someone in the USA got Snickers to stop airing it. Way to make real Americans proud, ass-clown.
