75/33 Year Anniversary

75 Years ago today was the great stock market crash of 1929. Also Winona Ryder turns 33 years old today. Wow. Looking at her bio, I had no idea some of the stuff about her. For example: 1. Her real hair color is blonde but when she made her first major film Lucas (1986) her hair color was dyed black and she was told to keep it that color and...

Enron and War

What the heck happened to Enron? This was the biggest corporate rip-off ever and no one brings it up at all. I think that the War on Terrorism and the War in Iraq is actually just a big distraction from corporate greed and abuse scandals. Why doesn’t Kerry say as much? Something like this: “The President is a one-trick pony. He talks about the War on Terror. What about the...

Income Breakdown in US

Quick Question: What percentage of Americans do you think has your income level? I believe that most Americans do not understand the breakdown of income in this country. So here is a nice chart to help you understand how poor most Americans are. (Shoutout to Danny for the basic info and the IRS for making this information public.) Source: IRS Income Tax Statistics Data – 130,076,445 Total income tax returns...

The Workin Man

A poem I read in The People’s History of the US. Addition source. My Boy I have a little boy at home, A pretty little son; I think sometimes the world is mine In him, my only one. But seldom, seldom do I see My child in heaven’s light; I find him always fast asleep… I see him but at night. Ere dawn my labor drives me forth; ’Tis night...

Poor Jets

They put up a good fight but lost. So I guess they are not going to go 16-0. BUT, I am getting a vision…Here it comes…They are going to go 15-1. I am 94% sure. If the Redsox can win the World Series, then maybe the Jets can win the Superbowl? The boys are getting a tiny bit more into football. I wish I could get DirecTV on the roof....

Its all about Florida

A nice electoral college calculator. Using this, I started with the 2000 election. Then I split Colorado’s vote. Then I changed Pennsylvania from a Democrat win to a Republican win. Ohio went to Bush last time. It doesn’t really matter. Whoever wins Florida wins. It’s all about Florida. Check the Miami Herald’s article written an hour ago on who is winning there. I wonder why I don’t hear about more...

New House, Day 4

So Comcast came over to set up cable TV and Internet Access, but unfortunately, they screwed up the internet access. They can’t even fix it until Sunday. Come on people! 13 days to the election. I sort of feel like a Boston Red Sox fan. You can make your own analogies here. Maybe something about class warfare and Babe Ruth? What is the best analogy you can make between this...

Houses and Families

Moved. Muscles hurt. Everything still in boxes or strewn throughout the house. No internet access. No phones. No Comcast. No DirecTV. No garbage. No mail. Other than that, I love the new house. Oh, speaking of DirecTV. They came and decided that the roof was too high. They didn’t want to go up on the ladder. What the hell is that? A satellite installation company that is afraid of heights??...

New House

We are the proud new owners of our new house in Hercules. It cost an arm and a leg but it is ours. I feel good about moving. Really excited. Lots to do. We are moving tomorrow. Right now, I am all optimism. Let’s see how I feel a year from now!

Lying Liars

In the debates, the ridiculous lies are making me crazy. Dick Cheney Debate Lies.. This video shows Bush lying to every American in crystal clear language. Bush DOES own part of a Timber company! I have this terrible feeling in my stomach that Bush is going to be president for four more years. I don’t know if he will be elected, but he will be president. Hopefully, it’s just gas.
