FYI: The J.O.B. Revisited

Since I posted about my new job a couple weeks ago, I have been pondering something. Since I now work for the State, I work in a location in which I am legally not allowed to bring my gun. So, basically I'm a sitting duck for a psycho who wants to run amuck at my place of work. I am becoming exceedingly irritated at this fact. I mean, if I worked for some jackass who just didn't want guns in his place of business, I'd still bring that shit anyway. I'd just keep it on the down low. Because, really, it's worth getting fired for--my life that is. And, in reality, my 2nd Amendment right is worth dying for, or it should be, so it is certainly worth getting fired over. It is, after all, what my forefathers fought and died for. But, in this case, I would not only be fired, I'd have broken a law, which would probably prevent me from carrying a gun ANYwhere EVER again in my future--which I hope is somewhat long, being that I'm not old and gray just yet. I just can't get this out of my mind. I love my Surefire E2D, but damn, that just isn't enough!

The Health Care Crisis Crisis

So, I saw an interesting post of facebook. So credible, I know. So, I Snopes-ed it. (Yes, I just made up a word. Yes, that's how I roll.) Apparently, it is legitimate, assuming Snopes is legitimate, but that's always up for discussion... The post is a letter to the editor or something similar that a doctor sent to a local paper in Mississippi. I can't find the original, but here is Snopes' quote:

"During my last shift in the ER, I had the pleasure of evaluating a patient with a shiny new gold tooth, multiple elaborate tatoos (sic) and a new cellular telephone equipped with her favorite R&B tune for a ring tone.

"Glancing over the chart, one could not help noticing her payer status: Medicaid.

"She smokes a costly pack of cigarettes every day and, somehow, still has money to buy beer.

"And our president expects me to pay for this woman's health care?

"Our nation's health care crisis is not a shortage of quality hospitals, doctors or nurses. It is a crisis of culture — a culture in which it is perfectly acceptable to spend money on vices while refusing to take care of one's self or, heaven forbid, purchase health insurance.

"Life is really not that hard. Most of us reap what we sow.

"Starner Jones, MD


Now, if that don't just about sum it up, I don't know what does. And, to those who read and agree with the response on Snopes that was apparently sent in to the paper regarding Jones' letter, I must say I beg to differ. There is an Us and a Them. The Us pay for lazy turd-cutters to sit on their growing asses. The Them take advantage of the system and are perfectly capable of getting off their lazy asses and supporting themselves. Now, I realize and agree that there is a slippery slope in determining who can and cannot get government support, but let's be real, we already do that--otherwise we would all be getting government support and none of us would be working. (Could you imagine the deficit? On second thought, could it really be much worse than it is now?) So, that argument is null and void in my book. We need more realistic and accurate ways of measuring qualifications for government assistance. Because, I for one know that my husband and I have nothing to drink in our refrigerator right now but water--and it isn't bottled but from the tap and is just in a pitcher in the frig to be cold. What I mean to say is, we can't afford groceries most weeks, so we don't even have milk right now. And, we don't qualify for food stamps. So, yes, I do get a little fucking irritated at the fat cunt in line buying $400 worth of meat when I can't even buy milk because she has food stamps and I don't, and I'll be damned if she doesn't look awfully capable of pushing that really heavy meat cart around. Can't she get a job doing that?

FYI: The J.O.B.

So, I got this new fancy smancy job working for the State. I won't say doing what so as to somewhat protect myself from getting fired when I make racist comments, bitch about how shitty work is, and say otherwise unscrupulous and immoral things on this here blog. Because, let's face it, you assholes will try to get me fired just because I hate Dagmar.

So, I want to start out my bitching by saying that I can only work 19 hours in a week because I am part-time. According to the State, if you work more than 19 hours, you are eligible for benefits, and they are required to offer them to you. Well, whoopdeefuckingdoo with your benefits. I just need some damn money! My husband's work has much better insurance than the State at a much cheaper cost to us, so I could give two shits about that. I just need some cash!

Now, let me back up and say that I guess I wouldn't be so irritated by this if they hadn't interviewed me for a full-time position that they never got funding established for. Yeah, that's right. AFTER they drug me through THREE. FUCKING. INTERVIEWS. They let me know that funding hadn't been secured, and they weren't sure it would be. Well, lucky me, there just so happened to be a part-time opening because (guess what!) the funding didn't come through. Gotta love it.

The Boob Apron

So, as a chick with huge boobs, I try to keep them semi-covered so as to avoid direct and obvious ogling. But, of course, there are shirts that just don't cooperate. For instance, v-necks, wraps, button-downs, etc. I tried wearing a tank top under those kinds of shirts, but it adds bulk and makes me look fatter than I already am, plus it makes me hot as hell. So, they have these little clip on things they have been advertising on the TV. I was thinking, if that shit would actually stay stuck to my bra all day (doubtful), it might be worth a shot. But after seeing this video, I've decided not to be a shitty human being. I'm gonna let my puppies fly.

Where Does That Money Come From???

So, I'm sure all of you have heard about the 30,000 people showing up to 100 available Section 8 homes in East Point, GA. But, have you heard the Regular Guys talk to the applicants? Unless you live in the metro area, I'm guessing you haven't. And, you need to:

Go here. (Yes, it's a download, but it is directly from their podcast, and I have no way of linking directly to it other than the file. It's not a virus.) And just listen. The most important part is around 7 minutes if you want to skip.

It's not enough that they are bitching that the housing authority wasn't prepared for 30,ooo people. Oh, no, they are expecting a fucking handout. As usual. The guy has no reason to be in government housing. No. Fucking. Reason. He's not handicapped. His children aren't handicapped. His wife baby-mama isn't handicapped. There is NOTHING wrong with him. Or his family. Or his ability to pay rent. He doesn't even give a sob story about being laid off (like so many of us who actually work) since, well, you have to have a job in the first place to get laid off. When they ask him where the money comes from, he acts like he doesn't know. They tell him. Then he's all like, "I figured." Well, if you figured the taxpayers were paying your lazy fucking ass' way, why didn't you get a job?! Because you're a worthless ass piece of shit, and you are what is wrong with our country! And, he's not happy or thankful about it. Because "some people might disagree with that". Yeah, some people might disagree with the fact that taxpayers pay your lazy ass fucking way. Like you. Right. Except you'd be fucking wrong. T-totally fucking wrong, asshole.

Consumer Reports Sucks

So, I'm sure you recall my new fancy smancy washing machine I got last month. You might also recall that I used Consumer Reports to help decide which one to get. Well, those fuckers liked me so much they decided they wanted to keep me for another month, which I did NOT authorize. When I signed up, I chose the one month option because I was only using it to help pick out a washing machine. I didn't expect to make any other big purchases any time soon, so I didn't want to sign up for a year. Well, I sign on to my Regions, and there it is--five dollars and 95 fucking cents of Consumer Reports. So, I put on my sweetest kill them with kindness voice, and I call the lady. I say that I did not intend to sign up for a year, and that was not clearly stated. I asked her to please refund the charge since I had not used the website, and I did not intend to, and she refused. So, I called her a bitch (which always makes me feel better), told her I'd call my bank, and I WOULD get my money back, and I'd complain to the BBB. Which I did. I love Regions! And the BBB.

Black Panther 10 Point Belief = Scary Shit!

This is copied exactly from the Black Panther's website:

"The Ten Point Plan

"WE WANT FREEDOM. WE WANT POWER TO DETERMINE THE DESTINY OF OUR BLACK AND OPPRESSED COMMUNITIES. We believe that Black and oppressed people will not be free until we are able to determine our destinies in our own communities ourselves, by fully controlling all the institutions which exist in our communities.

"WE WANT FULL EMPLOYMENT FOR OUR PEOPLE. We believe that the federal government is responsible and obligated to give every person employment or a guaranteed income. We believe that if the American businessmen will not give full employment, then the technology and means of production should be taken from the businessmen and placed in the community so that the people of the community can organize and employ all of its people and give a high standard of living.

"WE WANT AN END TO THE ROBBERY BY THE CAPITALISTS OF OUR BLACK AND OPPRESSED COMMUNITIES. We believe that this racist government has robbed us and now we are demanding the overdue debt of forty acres and two mules. Forty acres and two mules were promised 100 years ago as restitution for slave labor and mass murder of Black people. We will accept the payment in currency which will be distributed to our many communities. The American racist has taken part in the slaughter of our fifty million Black people. Therefore, we feel this is a modest demand that we make.

"WE WANT DECENT HOUSING, FIT FOR THE SHELTER OF HUMAN BEINGS. We believe that if the landlords will not give decent housing to our Black and oppressed communities, then housing and the land should be made into cooperatives so that the people in our communities, with government aid, can build and make decent housing for the people.

"WE WANT DECENT EDUCATION FOR OUR PEOPLE THAT EXPOSES THE TRUE NATURE OF THIS DECADENT AMERICAN SOCIETY. WE WANT EDUCATION THAT TEACHES US OUR TRUE HISTORY AND OUR ROLE IN THE PRESENT-DAY SOCIETY. We believe in an educational system that will give to our people a knowledge of the self. If you do not have knowledge of yourself and your position in the society and in the world, then you will have little chance to know anything else.

"WE WANT COMPLETELY FREE HEALTH CARE FOR All BLACK AND OPPRESSED PEOPLE. We believe that the government must provide, free of charge, for the people, health facilities which will not only treat our illnesses, most of which have come about as a result of our oppression, but which will also develop preventive medical programs to guarantee our future survival. We believe that mass health education and research programs must be developed to give all Black and oppressed people access to advanced scientific and medical information, so we may provide our selves with proper medical attention and care.

"WE WANT AN IMMEDIATE END TO POLICE BRUTALITY AND MURDER OF BLACK PEOPLE, OTHER PEOPLE OF COLOR, All OPPRESSED PEOPLE INSIDE THE UNITED STATES. We believe that the racist and fascist government of the United States uses its domestic enforcement agencies to carry out its program of oppression against black people, other people of color and poor people inside the united States. We believe it is our right, therefore, to defend ourselves against such armed forces and that all Black and oppressed people should be armed for self defense of our homes and communities against these fascist police forces.

"WE WANT AN IMMEDIATE END TO ALL WARS OF AGGRESSION. We believe that the various conflicts which exist around the world stem directly from the aggressive desire of the United States ruling circle and government to force its domination upon the oppressed people of the world. We believe that if the United States government or its lackeys do not cease these aggressive wars it is the right of the people to defend themselves by any means necessary against their aggressors.

"WE WANT FREEDOM FOR ALL BLACK AND OPPRESSED PEOPLE NOW HELD IN U. S. FEDERAL, STATE, COUNTY, CITY AND MILITARY PRISONS AND JAILS. WE WANT TRIALS BY A JURY OF PEERS FOR All PERSONS CHARGED WITH SO-CALLED CRIMES UNDER THE LAWS OF THIS COUNTRY. We believe that the many Black and poor oppressed people now held in United States prisons and jails have not received fair and impartial trials under a racist and fascist judicial system and should be free from incarceration. We believe in the ultimate elimination of all wretched, inhuman penal institutions, because the masses of men and women imprisoned inside the United States or by the United States military are the victims of oppressive conditions which are the real cause of their imprisonment. We believe that when persons are brought to trial they must be guaranteed, by the United States, juries of their peers, attorneys of their choice and freedom from imprisonment
while awaiting trial.

"WE WANT LAND, BREAD, HOUSING, EDUCATION, CLOTHING, JUSTICE, PEACE AND PEOPLE'S COMMUNITY CONTROL OF MODERN TECHNOLOGY. When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume, among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that, whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute a new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and, accordingly, all experience hath shown that mankind are most disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But, when a long train of abuses and usurpation, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security."

While it's all quite concerning, the point that gets me is that their "illnesses...have come about as a result of [their] oppression". Huh. That's sure funny. I didn't know sickle cell was caused by slavery!

Joke: A Blonde With Big Tits

President George W. Bush and Colin Powell are drinking in a pub close to Old Town Square in Prague. A guy walks in and asks the bartender,"Isn't that Bush and Powell sitting over there?"

The barman says, "Yep, that's them."

So the guy walks over and says, "Wow, this is a real honor. What are you guys doing in here?"

Bush says, "We're planning WW III."

The guy says, "Really? What's going to happen?"

Bush says, "Well, we're going to kill 40 million Iraqis this time and one blonde with big tits."

A little perplexed the guy exclaimed, "A blonde with big tits? Why kill a blonde with big tits?"

Bush turns to Powell, punches him on the shoulder and says, "See, smart ass?! I told you no one would worry about the 40 million Iraqis.

Hummingbird Takes Hot Air Balloon Ride

I thought this was a fantastic photo (right click to open in another window for full size). We got this feeder last year, just to see if we could get any hummingbirds, and this little lady has been gracing us with her presence. She's quite beautiful--and extremely fast!

I Was Wondering: Psychological Screening for Guns

I don't want to piss anyone off (that's a first, right?!), so hear me out before you fly off. This is an honest question, and I honestly want to hear your opinion. So, please be civil.

I have a very close family member who works for a sport shooting club. He is around guns all the time, and he was his own guns. He even recently obtained a Georgia conceal carry license. Here's the problem: I know for a fact he shot himself about 10 years ago. I don't think it was honestly a suicide attempt as much as it was a cry for attention because of some shit that was going on (I won't air his dirty laundry). However, he was nearly paralyzed and extremely lucky. I don't necessarily think he'd do it again, but I never thought he'd do it in the first place.

Here's my question: Do you think, in spite of how much we want gun rights, we need more strict psychological screening when it comes to getting your hands on guns or gun permits. I'm torn on the issue, mostly because I know the guy, but if I didn't know him and love him, would I think he should have a gun much less a conceal carry permit?

Please discuss, but remember, comments are moderated!

Samsung Washer WF330ANW

So, my washer, which wasn't really my washer but Travis' parents' old one, decided it wanted to be retired to the old folks home junk yard at the ripe ol' age of 15. The drum in our top loader was at an angle more like that of a front loader, and it was leaking oil. And, even though we're broke as Joe's turkey (why, exactly, Joe's turkey is broke, I don't know), we decided we were tired of that shit and kicked it to the curb for this nice shiny new one.

It's a Samsung WF330ANW, and it is currently $600 from Best Buy. I did a lot of research on washing machines, and we decided a front loader was the best way to go. Consumer Reports rated this machine very highly and gave it their "recommended" stamp. We got a Georgia Energy Star Rebate for $99 (note that online purchases do NOT apply--you must buy in store!), so we ended up getting it for $500, and it was just a way better deal than any top loader. Plus, it has more space and more options, including this fancy smancy "sanitize" cycle. I'm in love with that one since we have a chihuahua who thinks she's a cocker spaniel and pukes every chance she gets. Just to piss me off. Anywho, it's been super quiet, and, despite the concrete floor that was leveled by a drunk with one eye, it hasn't walked off yet. It spins at a remarkable 1150 rpms. I swear it's going to take off, but it sure gets your clothes dry before you put them in the dryer. It's a huge energy saver because of that, and it uses a lot lot lot less water. The direct drive motor has a 10 year warranty, which is comparable to LG, and at regular price it is very comparable to LG's similar model, but on sale, it was no contest.

I haven't had any issues with it yet (I'll update if I do) except I don't have enough stuff to wash. I sat there and watched it for the first hour or so... I want to try out all the cycles, but I don't have any dress clothes for permanent press or wool for the wool cycle, and I don't wear anything that goes on the gentle cycle (if you know what I mean). I'm thinking of trying the chihuahua on the gentle cycle, but I'm afraid she may need to go on the quick wash...

Burger King of Idiots, US41, Acworth, GA

So, here's I is...I been wantin' (pinin' for) a Burger King apple pie for, like, two days. I get myself an appetite worked up swimming (in case you aren't in Georgia, it's only 100 degrees). I get out of the pool, drive all the way to Burger King--they aren't exactly all that common, really--and place my order for a whopper JR (no cheese, no onions), a large frozen coke, and an apple pie (well, duh!). What about this looks anything like an apple fucking pie?.

Go ahead and right click and select "Open Link in New Tab" if you can't tell. Because the answer is NOTHING. And Samedesh, yes literally, can't blame my fucking accent or the speaker because the shit was broken, and I was ordering AT THE WINDOW. Really. You can't make this shit up! And, to add insult to injury they give you this ketchup-sized packet of caramel. What the fuck am I supposed to do with that?! At least give me a little cup of the "low fat" caramel so I can dip my apple sticks in it. I mean, does that crazy bitch really think my fat ass is gonna order a whopper, frozen coke, and apples?! It's like ordering a whopper, large fries, and a diet coke. Damn. Just damn.

Hiatus Much?

I apologize for the mild inconvenience of not getting to read my mindless rantings everyday. It's been a long year and a half since getting laid off, and I just haven't had it in me. Have I changed much? Probably not. I'm still super bitter and angry, but I try to keep it to minimum, which might be new... I really don't know.

If you're wondering, I still don't have a job. Yep. It's been a year and a half. Yep. There must be something wrong with me. Nope. I don't know what it is. I've looked and applied and looked and applied until I've all but given up. I don't really think I'll get a job at this point. It's been too long since I've had one. I think I might be OK with it now, though. My husband (not divorced yet! woohooo!) is set to graduate from school (finally!) in December. Bless his heart, he has worked so hard, and I am so proud of him! So, assuming nothing goes wrong (with me, YEAH RIGHT!), he will be working true full time with a salary to match that degree come the first of the year. We might actually survive!

So, if everything works out, we might start trying to have some rugrats. I know what you're thinking: my mouth and kids--bad combination. LOL I'm not that bad in real life. I think...

Anywho... I've been meaning to write something for a while, so maybe I'll actually be able to commit. I hope you will still read, even if it's been a long time. I believe I can still entertain... We shall see.

We. Shall. See.
