Hard to Believe

It's been a busy couple of days.

On Sunday, my Baby Girl, Attitude With Legs, turned 32. I love you, little girl!

Then yesterday, She Who Must Be Obeyed and I celebrated our 35th Anniversary. With everything I've put that woman through, with my back problems and PTSD, I can't believe she's stuck around this long. I guess it's amazing what trust and respect will do. I'm the luckiest man in the world to have found such a loving, caring angel - and I hope others out there can be so lucky!

S&G - Ecoweenies and Others

I know - it's been a month. I just don't seem to have the fire in the belly since the two year election. So this is going to be a "when the Muse strikes" blog for a while.

Now for the fun:

There's a group of Save the Planet idiots who are trying to grow more plankton in the oceans, since they absorb CO2. I don't think they know that plankton generates over 50% of our oxygen, not their pretty trees. By growing more plankton, they will be adding more oxy into the atmosphere, which may kill off any plants or animals that can't adapt to the higher level. I wonder if these scientists have ever heard of the Law of Unintended Consequences?

And, of course, the Ecoweenies have killed off their favorite theory - Darwin's Natural Selection, or Evolution. By placing everything they can think of on endangered lists, as well as humans breeding for recessives, evolution has been killed. In order for evolution to work you need a species to go extinct in order to open a niche for others to fill. Dipshits.

Now one of my pet peeves - while all these States are banning hand-held cell phones, our car manufacturers are putting GPS, restaurant lists, maps, etc, right smack in the middle of the dashboard, so you have to take your eyes off the road. I know most speak, but people are still going to look at the map, causing them to either go off-road or wandering across lanes. What are these folks thinking?

And finally, the owner of the Chicago Cubs, the Tribune Co, has filed for bankruptcy. Unfortunately, the Cubs are not included in the bankruptcy. Not only has it been over 100 years since they won a World Series (and since 1945 that they even made it there), they can't even file bankruptcy right!

Wait 'til Next Decade!!
