Last night's Tar Heels victory is extra sweet given that it's the 5th straight in Cameron Indoor sweatboxatorium. One thing I've referenced before, is how us Carolina fans enjoy our ability to watch our team compete and win without us having to feel we're part of the competitive equation. That is, we're cheering for our five guys to beat your five guys (or sometimes, our five guys versus your five players and 2 or 3 of the refs). We are absolutely tickled with the fact that you Duke fans were helping your team...and...
We. Still. Whipped. Your. Punkass.
Hahahahahaha. I love it.
On to other stuff...
I meant to mention this earlier. Actually, I did mention it, but didn't elaborate. Here come da E-laboration: Sunday, neighbor-friend Ted takes me along on the horse-ride, remember? I was riding Nockahoma, and there were 17 of us riders. I was not prepared for there to be that many folks, as I thought it was going to just be a few of us, but it was a coordinated ride with the local horsemen's association. The ride was over 8 miles long. This was my first time riding Nockahoma.
Nockahoma's nature is that he hates being amongst a bunch of horses; he likes to be out in space. When he's behind another, he likes crowding up on them and his gait is choppy. When out by himself, he's very easy (not to mention, comfortable) to ride. But, when he gets out in front, he behaves very unsure of his direction.
Once, this was happening in front of Ted and several other riders. We were talking about it, about 4 of us, I think. I said, "I know what it is."
They were all curious, of course. "Do tell," says Ted.
"He's a democrat" says I.
"Why do you say that," someone asked (I believe they thought it a good thing that anybody or anything is a Democrat).
And I said, "because he wants to lead, but he doesn't know how."
And even more stuff:
I was gnashing my teeth this morning, in spite of my otherwise pleasant disposition regarding the Carolina game, over having a person (in my presence, no less) utter the following ignorance in regards to the (choke, choke, hack) "stimulus plan": I'm just glad they're working together...
Can somebody please just shoot me?
Boortz made me feel a little better. He has a way separating the wheat from the chaff:
Yesterday we were supposed to get the grand financial plan from Obama's tax-cheating whiz-kid Tim Geithner. And what we got was a bunch of grandstanding, but not a lot of details. Here's one good line: "We're will have to try things we've never tried before." Wait! Isn't that what brung us to this hideous dance with all these ugly partners in the first place?
Let's see ... we'll start out by making millions of home loans to people who have no credit, no steady job history, and certainly not enough income to pay the loan back. We'll make these loans to people who should be renters. We've never tried that before on such a large scale .. let's see how that works out for us.
Here's something else we haven't tried before. Let's pass a law - we'll call it the Community Reinvestment Act. This will be a really nifty way for the government to interfere in the free marketplace. We'll set up some urban gangs who can make sure local banks make bad loans to favored minority groups .. or they'll get spanked by the federal government. Let's see how THAT one works out for us.
Once we have those two programs we haven't tried before in place, we'll keep interest rates artificially and illogically low for far too long. Yeah, let's follow this monetary policy that virtually every sane economist not working for the government thinks is a grave mistake because voters like low interest rates. That ought to work out really well.
So now our tax-cheat Treasury secretary wants to try some more things we haven't tried before? Well, you may think that this message brings great hope, but it would seem that the stock market didn't like that one bit.
If you want to see just how this gang of leftist statists want to change this country some new details can be found here.
The reason we don't have more details has to be because they really don't know how the hell they're going to pull this off. It's just going to be stuff we haven't tried before. No chance for letting people work, thrive and then spend their own money.
