When I originally started uncensoredrants.com and icensored.com, it was for the sole purpose of getting my opinions out into the open. And, as most anyone that has read any of this blog can tell, I am not shy about sharing my opinions. Unfortunately, I am already sharing them in a lot of different places and have neglected this site in favor of some of the others where I am getting more of a response and community.
With that in mind, I wanted to open this up to others who may want to contribute their own rants and share some of how they feel about the world. If this is you, please drop me a line via comment or email and lets talk about your contributions.
Hey fatty; yes you, the one with more lard in your ass than a micro-bus, you’re going to have to work just a little harder to get your college degree from Lincoln University in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania because good grades are no longer good enough. That’s right, this “Historically Black University that combines the best Elements of a liberal arts and sciences” is leading the charge in the battle against obesity by requiring all students with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or above, which generally defines obesity, to take a fitness course that meets three hours per week. Don’t complete the class? Don’t graduate.
Ok folks. This American “It’s not my fault. It’s the fault of the person with the money!” attitude that just pisses me off.
Everyone feels like they deserve something from someone else even when it was their own stupid fault. Remember many years ago the person that sued McDonalds because her coffee was “Hot?” They got coffee at the drive through and placed it between their legs (I guess they didn’t have cup holders back in the stone age.) Short story is, the coffee spilled and they sued.
Yeah. We all thought it was a joke, and silly, but that person ended up getting a lot of money for it. And to be fair, the facts of the case showed she received THIRD DEGREE burns from the fucking coffee!
It’s been a while since I last posted – but not for want or fodder. My children have been under the weather and accordingly I’ve devoted my time to make sure that they’re getting the attention and support that they need during their time being ill. Fortunately, they’re now better and for good or bad I’m back to sharing my rants and making sure that my voice is heard.
I talked yesterday about my feelings surrounding the auto-bailout for Chrysler, Ford and General Motors, and the more I read about what Congress is doing and the debates that are flying around the more frustrated I get. Now CNN is reporting that Congress wants the automakers to show how they plan on spending their bailout dollars before they’re willing to offer any. Generally speaking this isn’t a bad idea, but what I find most frustrating is that they haven’t publicly asked the same from companies like AIG or banks taking money from the already approved $700 billion bailout. Doesn’t it seem logical that any company coming to Uncle Sam for a loan/bailout would be held to the same standards?
At the same time they’re asking for $25 billion in taxpayer money – these auto company CEOs are idiots. They all came from the same state in their own private luxury jets. The average American will never see first class, let alone the inside of a private luxury jet, and while continuing to pay their taxes will probably end up eating Mac-and-Cheese to get through this depression recession and these beggars can’t even share a ride or fly commercial. That’s saying two things – they are neither green nor frugal, and that should be disconcerting to everyone. These companies need to get both quickly and those changes need to start at the top.
It’s probably not a coincidence that Apple announced the release of their 2.2 update for the super-successful iPhone on the same day that RIM/Verizon planned to release the much anticipated Blackberry Storm. Both have a touch-screen, 3G connectivity and basic PIM functionality, but the similarities end there. The iphone has the app store that is revolutionary in hand-held devices. RIM has the reputation as a diehard business machine that is bulletproof when it comes to email. Both reputations are well deserved and both phones will continue to coexist in the market.
I’ve been looking around trying to find out the best “ticker” for tracking election results, and it seems that MSNBC might have one of the best out there. Nice thing is they have widgetized it so that I can embed it here for you. Enjoy!
