Thank you for the well wishes, the move went off with little drama other than having to babysit a old and declining car through ten hours of driving with every single one of my valuable (to me at least) possessions loaded in the hatch.
The cute little doggies pictured below are just two of my new roommates as well as a sweet and charming girl. So life is good.
I still marvel at how people can even listen to Geroge Bush with a straight face. The other day while I was listening to him on NPR I heard him say that he wants to keep the programs that work and to get rid of the programs that don't work. So he plans to keep pouring money into Iraq and sustain and lengthen the damamge done by his budget busting spending and tax cuts while he works to cut reliable programs that have helped millions of people throughout many many years.
I still feel like I'm living in a twilight zone. He keeps saying that we should "Make the tax cuts permanent" when anyone with even the most basic grasp of government knows that there is no such thing as permanancy in a representational government.
Its as if a president said that he wanted to make Social Security permanent. Yes, still a preposterous notion even though many of us would like to see SS maintained for a bit longer. We can't just forget the fact that in our country we have the right and freedom to change our minds at any time. Which means that we can change our taxes if we feel it might be necessary to say, keep our nation from imploding.
And this year during tax season I want you all to take a look at your W-2's and realize that when politicians talk about taxes they talk about income taxes and that they seem to all conveniently seem to ignore all the other taxes that we pay as well.
Without internet at home I've had less time to read through blogs, which is just as well I suppose for its given me more time to do other things like reading books for instance. I do plan in getting broadband at home soon enough but i am hoping to get a better look at my options before commiting to anything.
take care all I hope to be writing more soon.
oh yeah, and this year's super bowl was one of the worst I have ever watched. Seattle played the better game and the officiating was too instrumental in deciding the score and momentum of the game. Ben Rothlisberger did not make it into the endzone with his sneak and it was obvious to everyone. The bogus calls against seattle at the worst times made the game a farce that I was disappointed to watch.
I don't mind watching a favorite team lose due to subpar performance (like, say... Denver's loss) but I do hate to see a game decided by forces outside of the players on the field. And I was a little too put out by the over the top sentimentality on the part of the network to push for Pittsburgh as the emotional favorite.
