cybershells

One last flower, one last vase.

I am now putting this black carnation in an iron vase, set way off to the side. This one is for me.

Words are the bullets of the internet. I wrote a post protesting the gestapo tactics used to put more money into the coffers of the Iowa bank. This money will be used to give state politicos raises. It will also fund non smoking casino's with twice the number of bars. That way all of those non smokers can gamble away their savings and drink enough to endanger the lives of everyone they meet on the road. No, the money won't go to fix or build roads, that would be logical and Iowa is NOT logical.

No one saw the taxes part. Everyone condemned the smoking part though and did it well. It was just my train of thought. Hmmm, maybe a trip to the park would help.

money hungry Iowa

Iowa is the first in the nation. The very first state to eliminate the middle class. Thanks to our new tax laws, only the rich can afford to buy cigarettes. Is it legal? Of course it is, the government did it. They have taxed one entity out of business. Whatever will this money hungry state destroy next? How about coffee? Then all the smokers can suffer both withdrawal from nicotine and caffeine at the same time!!
I guess they might as well make it easy and just remove all controls on guns. That way those of us that smoke and drink coffee can just add more business to the soon to be growing mortuary business. Oh wait, that will be getting taxed out of business too. Hmm, I guess we’ll just have to start digging bigger pits to throw the excess bodies in. Isn’t Iowa just grand?

crush that taco!!!

I try to avoid politcal issues. However, our government (Yes Virginia, we do get what we pay for and this government is not even good enough for a goodwill bin), has finally proven just how idiotic it really is. Ok, yes, we all know that war in Iraq is just to reduce the number of male taxpayers. But their latest bouts of stupidity have me totally up in arms.

What, may I stupidly ask, is the problem with immigrants? I guess since they can't vote they are undesirable. Are they taking jobs of Americans? No, in fact we ship the good jobs to their country. We are not the natives of this country. I do not recall ever seeing a petition to fence the east coast to keep the pilgrims out. I don't believe the Mexicans, or any from South America built very many walls to prevent the spanish or portugese from conquering them. Europe has taken down borders and make a united Europe. What in the hell is the mindset here? Heaven forbid a mexican will sneak in to feed his family!!!!

Oh, wait. I know what it is. Spies and Terrorists come in through the Mexican border disguised as immigrants. Give me a break. The bad guys that want in to cause damage have much more sophisticated ways. They can forge papers to the point they will come in legally. Justify this immigration thing. It cannot be done!! Dont get me wrong, there are a lot of excuses and I've heard a lot of them, especially at Taco Bell!
