Earmarks in Bills

Have you heard what they have in these bills they are trying to get us to pay for.

a bill for Morman crickets?? Are the male crickets in limted supply and need multiple cricket wives??

A bill to have control the beaver population in New Orleans - Okay that could be taken a few different ways. Has the beaver in the big easy really gotten that out of hand. So are they impeding on each others corner? Oh come on.

Money to help with the odor from pigs in Iowa - SOAP.. Hello they are PIGS! Pigs smell. they play in mud.

Money for genetic research on grapes - Is there a run in paternity among the grape population? They are grapes.

These have got to be the stupidest things to add to bills. Hey why not add something like support the ARTS.. Help the Local Scrapbook Stores.... That is helpful on multiple way - Mental therapy, preserving the past, bringing families together and physical therapy.

The nerve of people..

Tonight I had to fill up my little Rav4. I stopped at the place where I feed my Slurpee addiction (7eleven). I was pumping gas. I see this beat up, paint peeling, dented and muddy red minivan at the pump across from me. It had papers and empty coffee cups across the dash. The guy pumped his gas. He then walks over the to little squeegee window cleaner. Head back to his care and cleans the window. I then notice that he starts squeegeeing the dirt off his driver door. He then moves to the tire and cleans it. He works his way all around his vehicle. So he used the thing we use to get the buggies who decided to out in front of you as you drive 70 mph down the highway. So now who ever uses it next will get their windshield scratched because he did not want to run it through a car wash. Well when I went in to get my crack-in-a-cup (sorry I drink the Coke and Mountain Dew mixed - The best) I told the cashier what he was doing and she was shocked. So now think twice before using the squeegee at the service station because it may have been used to wash someones van..

A trip to the book store..

Have you ever noticed that they publish a book and then a few years later they pull it and put a new cover and then plant it back on the shelf. I have seen this with several of the series of books I have or are reading. L.J. Smith's Vampire Diaries have been pulled all the books (at the time 4 books). They pulled them stuck 4 books in 2 books and then they are back on the shelf. I have noticed about another one of his series of books. Charaliane Harris, her books are very hard to find at the moment. You can the find the first of the Southern Vampire series back on the shelf with a new cover thank to HBO. They have a new series called True Blood. I must say it is pretty strange to watch. The series is pretty close to the book so far. There are some crazy changes to the plot. They have started reprinting the Harry Potter series. Although I must say there are what 6 or 7 covers already. I will admit I have 2 complete sets of the series (US & UK releases). Sorry I like the series. I have noticed since I purchased my final book in the Harry Potter series I have been reading more. And lately I have been reading even more. That is one reason I have not been posting to often. For Christmas I was given a Kindle e-book. I am in LOVE with it. I am on my 7th book since I got it. It is amazing how quick you can read with it. You can change the font. You can download a book ANYWHERE. So I started the Southern Vampire series the Monday after New Years and I am now on Chapter 9 if the 7th book. I have never read this fast. I admit I have ADHD and can not concentrate long enough to finish a book with in a month or even a year. I now love to read. Thank you Amazon. My bank account has some other words for you. Well I am running away to see what Sookie is up to...

A funny & something just wrong..

Okay the funny. I was sent this website with a video. This a the speech a best man gave. You will laugh your butt off. The Freaky Best Man.

Okay last week a woman gave birth to 8 babies at once. Okay yes it is a miracle but unnecessary. This woman already had 6 children (One of which has autism). She did this so she could get another girl. She does not have a job. She is not married. Her children all have come from the same sperm donor (can you imagine his surprise when 14 children show up on his door step). Her parents had to move in with her and her children in a 2 bedroom home. Can you imagine 15 to 17 people in a 2 bedroom home. Her parents filed for bankruptcy last year. She did this because she is obsessed with having kids. I am sorry there is a lot wrong with this. Her parents bought her a home for her and her kids. She could not make the payments so her parents stepped in. They in turn lost their home and had to move in with her. If she could not way her mortgage then she should not be paying for IVF. How is she going to pay for these children and their medical bills. This kids are going to need a lot in the medical department for the rest of their lives. How did she pay for this? It can cost $15000 to do IVF. Who is going to pay for these kids? I don't think it should be the people of her state that should pay for these children. It was not their choice. This was done for a totally greedy reason. She has robbed her parents of their life and stability. It is not fair for those children. As for the IVF clinic you guys need to draw the line somewhere. You have no business putting 8 embryos in at one time. That is insane. Humans were not meant to carry a litter of kids. As a young girl I love children but I would never consider having 8 embryos implanted. Anyways my family would have me committed for a psychological evaluation. She needs help. It is now posted that she want 2 million from the media for interviews. This is insane. News Article.

I am sorry if you do not share my feelings but it is my blog and this is how I feel.
