Also, 2 pre-emptive things:

1) East/West Coasties/etc.: If you're going to bash us on where we live and the dangerous weather conditions in "fly over country", then remind me not to give a shit when a disaster befalls you. I'm looking at you, California.

2) I guess Obama doesn't care about black people and Mittens does. As shitty of a president Bush was, Obama must be the GOLDEN child to get such cover for such a lack of concern for doing the exact same thing that Bush was criticized for. He's in Texas trying to raise money for re-election. So, fuck him.

Four Down, Eighty Four to Go

Jun. 10th, 2010 | 04:49 pm
location: Work

had to update the list, since I haven't been on in a dog's age.

31.Take down swing set
44.Shave head
59.Teach Noah to read on his own
79.Memory for JoAnn's computer


I did the first two late last year (shaved head for my 40th birthday and took down the swing set around the same time).

I cannot take the credit for #59, though. That honor goes to his wonderful 1st Grade teacher, Mrs. Kathy Biles. She was simply amazing as a teacher.

There is a variation to #79, which will also happen to other things on the list as some of the objectives will need to be changed due to other issues. Instead of memory, I got my wife a used laptop, which works far better than the desktop PC we were planning to upgrade. Now with the wireless connection, she does all her internetting and other diabolical deeds on it.

Seriously?

The White House has asked for James Cameron for ideas about the spill?!?!

SERIOUSLY?

They're asking a director; who said to a reporter, "(sic) If the Native Americans of yesteryear could have seen the future of their race and culture, they would have fought harder." For fucking advice?

Let's not ask deepwater oceanographers or engineers who deal with this shit. No, that'd be too easy.

Let's get the man who created "Dances With Wolves in Space."

Maybe the Navi can use their USB tails to commune with the Earth and tell it to close the fissure, thereby stopping the oil.

Fucking unbelievable...

ETA: Maureen Dowd isn't impressed by it, either - "Thank goodness James Cameron, the director of The Abyss, came to Washington on Tuesday to help the administration figure out how to cap the BP well. What's next? Sending down the Transformers and Megan Fox?"

Dear President Obama,

Thank you for taking a break from your busy schedule of fundraising to take another stop here to "lend your support" with the oil spill.

Well, if it is the same type of "support" that you have given to the other politicians you have been trying to get re-elected, we don't want it.

Also, if you have "been in charge since Day 1" of this mess, then that's not something to parade about as a good thing. It shows that the response of the Federal government was lacking, just like with Katrina. However, the blame for Katrina is spread amongst federal government, local government, and Joe Citizen too stupid/blase not to leave the area.

This, on the other hand, falls on the Feds. From the beginning, LOCAL GOVERNMENT WAS ASKING FOR HELP. Your response, the equivalent of shrugging your shoulders. We ask to build berms to protect the coast, "We'll get to approving your permit just as soon as we finished having a manicure."

I'm also a wee ticked that local government, not getting a fast enough response from the Feds, didn't just say, "screw this" and start with the clean up and berms, and deal with the consequences later.

Stop dragging your feet, Mr. President. Stop dragging your feet.
