Obama *IS* Coming For Your Guns!

by cirrocco

Well, you and I know that isn't true, but that line has existed for decades now. Except, when I've heard it, the word "Obama" has been replaced with various groups. So, where X=the group currently about to come for the guns, the phrase goes, "X is coming for/wants to take away your guns."

I'm just as tired of hearing this as everyone else who knows better, so I have a plan for the next time I hear it.

I was recently exposed to the phrase "war crime." What an odd phrase that is.

They hated us then, too

by cirrocco

The leather, the spikes, the outrageous hair, the over-the-top stage sets and all the other trappings of heavy metal and rock 'n' roll were decried back then, too, and the message was equally ignored.

Profile of a Birther

by cirrocco

Alas I'm intimately familiar with a Birther. He's my father. He's also the reason that I know for a fact that there's an element of racism to the Birthers.

He's also the reason it hurts so much to listen to these people. After all, I love my father. Consider his experience...

Is Glenn Beck illegally married?

by cirrocco

Is Glenn Beck illegally married? That may seem like a strange question, and I believe he is legally married, but I can't help but wonder why we've never seen PROOF that he's legally married!

Unemployment, food stamps, welfare, Section 8...where does all this money ultimately go? Who is it REALLY a handout to?

Here's where I attempt to channel my inner Bob Dylan. A non-melodic set of lyrics to be set to a badly-played harmonica and an acoustic guitar.

Too bad I don't know how to play either.

There I was, about to go to sleep, when suddenly the Muse visited me...

Fine, Canada Sucks.

by cirrocco

After reading a letter to the editor of the Tri-City Herald here in Hermiston, OR, I'm convinced. Canada's system of healthcare sucks.

As I rolled down the highway I tripped over the words "grass roots" in my head and something popped in there that was oh so appropriate: Harass Roots.

I cannot, for the life of me, remember where I've seen the reference to this event mentioned on DK, but I know I have. It just so happens that I found an article and have a picture of it. Pic below the fold...

Oh, a tough guy, huh?

by cirrocco

More of a rant than anything else, if you'll indulge me. I'm a truck driver, and I've got something to say to my fellow truck drivers.

Look, I know we have a reputation for being "tough guys" and, in a  lot of ways, we are. We sacrifice time with our families to feed our families and keep America moving. We slog through crappy weather through places where trucks have no business being in the name of doing our jobs.

But there's more to being a tough guy than hard work and sacrifice...
