gay marriage

It's been a spell since I wrote all political, but I feel the urge to do so, so I am.
Anyway, the is a group out there opposing Washington State's law that granted civil unions all the rights of marriage, without calling it marriage, so this group opposes it.

These people base their argument against gay marriage on God's law. Does that mean that they also want to forbid non Christians from getting married? They have a commercial that says god created the earth and man and marriage. What if you don't believe any of that? I do not believe in God therefore I do not believe in marriage?

They have another commercial that say, something like most homosexual relationships last less than 2 years. Here is a new flash for you Skippy. Most hetero relationship last less than 2 years! I would be willing to be that most relationships last less than 2 months.

The part that pisses me off is in a commercial when they say that homosexuals have a much higher suicide rate. I do not know if this is true or not. If it is true don't the A-holes that make this argument see that they’re the cause of this statistic?

If gays were accepted as equal and not forced to live as second class citizens shammed into hiding their feeling from the world, they would likely have a lower suicide rate. Actually I do not know that, but never mind that.

What I do know is that when the dildoes running this organization kill over, they’re going to be less than pleasantly surprised about their afterlife and if their god is running things I think I would prefer not to know him.

I hope this referendum fails.

companies I like

last time i posted a list of 3 companies that had given me reason to hope they went away as companies in the last couple weeks, so I'll do the reverse this time.
  • Dell Computers actually treated me good, Dell Fiancial services which it turns out is a different company didn't but nevermind that.
  • Target - A couple days ago, the clerk took me in the express lane which had no line, from the regular lane, which had a line despite my having about 40 items.
  • Coke, and more specifically diet coke, that necture of the gods, or at least overweight middle aged accountants.
  • Toyota - I am really really impressed with the prius after getting to ride in the second one I've gotten to ride into.
  • Ebay - I've actually sold some of the book i've read in the past month and have earned enough to buy a new book to read :-)

companies that blow

Chase, Tmobile, and Chrysler.

In the past few days, I have had horrible expericances with each of these companies. Is it any wonder that the government had to bail 2 of them out and the third is losing marketshare? I say knwo it is not.

The world would be a better place if all three of these companies went away.

Oct 14th

It is October 14th and I had a client show up this morning before I got here at 8 to deliver his tax paper. Seriously, I haven't gotten anything from them until now. Which if it was an easy return wouldn't bother me, but this is not an easy return(s). They also brought in the information for their business returns. This means I am excpected to prepare 2 or 3 returns, I don't remember which, and then prepare the individual return.

I just looked last year, I spent abotu 75 hours doing their stuff. there are only 39 hours left on the 15th? How am i supposed to do that? And do you really want your accountant to throw numbers down and see what sticks?

What have you learned

Yesterday, someone who obvisouly doesn't know I have a blog asked me What have you learned from being a parent. I gave some thought to this and have came up with this rather short list.
  • few things can take away hours of frustration like having your baby smile at you.
  • when people ask if your baby is sleeping through the night they ask like it is a good thing, but they don't mention that when they start doing that, they're up for most of the day, which means the Jerry's Big Dog and Pony Baby Entertainment Extravagansa got a second and sometimes third act.
  • I never knew what it was like to be tired, before I am up at midnight, with my lower back screaming, my arms throbbing and holding the little girl because the pain in your arms and back doens't compare to haveing to listen to her scream.
  • I am munipulatable, even by little girls, well at least little girl and dogs, and my wife, I am starting to think I am what they mobster/villian types would call a mark.
  • Day care is expensive
  • No matter how many implementations of parenting easy you have like a bottle warmer, swing, car seat, jumper, rings, chew toys, bottle sanitizer, travel bag, stroller, front pack, or the oodles of other stuff out there, the one i want now is always the one i can't find.

That is what I've learned from parenting so far.

What I have learned

I think most of you know that politians, lobbyist, and world leader types are an arrogant lot, who think they're better then the rest of us. I think the expession is they think their poop doesn't stink.

Recently I was in a hotel located very near the White House, Within 3 blocks. Anyway it was pricey I would not have paid that much for a hotel. Anyway this it what I learned. That if you rent a room in a hotel that is alot, there are certain things you get. There are certain things you don't get too. Among the items you don't get is a bathroom fan.

Every bes western I have ever stayed at has one, but this hotel didn't. I can only take this to mean that the power that be in Washington literally believe their poop doesn't stink.
