Life being what it is, I find myself typing my first post in almost a year. Without the outlet of this blog, I've had to regale Chris repeatedly with my sundry rantings on the current state of affairs.
For instance, I recently heard the following sound bytes on Headline News:
Dems are tickled pink because Ol' Dubya finally agreed to sign a bill requiring automotive manufacturers to comply with a new 35 mpg requirement on all vehicles, with a gradual implementation over the next however many years. Yes, W finally agreed to sign the bill after Dems agreed to put in a new tax break for those poor, poor oil companies (who continue to post record profits in the BILLIONS each quarter, because if anyone needs a tax break, it's those hardworking Oil execs). Meanwhile, in other news, Congress suddenly realized that they made a mistake about five years ago and forgot to put a new tax law into the tax code which would have raised taxes for the average middle income family about $2500 a year. Oh, no! Well, they've decided to be nice about it and give us this year to adjust our withholdings to make sure they get that money next year. The dears! How thoughtful of them to give their oil buddies a tax break while increasing the tax burden for us middle income folks. After all, we shoulder the majority of the tax burden anyway! 'Nuff said, I do believe, on that account.
Ok, onto other news.
I'm dying to know what is happening with Scott Peterson! If anyone out there can stomach Nancy Grace, give me the recent dish! I haven't heard a thing since the pesky old mall shootings out West wiped his beguiling face off the tube.
And what about that Britney? Loved the wacky pics in the back of the ambulance. It was like stills from a soap opera audition.
And speaking of Spears....who out there agrees with me that if Jamie Lynn Spears really wanted to set a good example for young girls out there, she'd give her kid up?! All three girls here watch Zoey 101 religiously, and I'm not too pleased with her new slut stunt and the fact they happened to be in the room when some newswoman was loudly proclaiming the *shock*of her teenage pregnancy! We never even had a chance to keep it a secret or come up with a good explanation. And that's another thing, thanks for making us have to explain it! "Well, girls, no she is not married. Yes, I know we said that only married people have babies, but we lied hoping it would keep you from having premarital sex." Makes you pine for that fly-on-the-wall experience, n'est ce pas?
Alright, folks,I've given you a few of my latest rants. Now it's your turn!
