Hard times not a comin'
as they are already here.
Just and inkling of self pity,
and that's what pisses me off the most.
Trying and getting nowhere used to bother me more than anything else in the world,
but now, not even knowing where to go bothers me the most.
Where is karma when I need her?
My grandfather is in the hospital. He went in there Sunday night / Monday morning. Pneumonia was the original cause for the visit. A few days later now, and they are still trying to fight off the bacteria so that he can get better. I know he is weak and tired from being 94 with Alzheimer's and so forth but I have never seen him this weak and fragile. This man is my hero and it is bothering me more than I thought it would. I just don't like it. Thursday is another day though, which means 2 more visits from Dr. Yu. She has the power to send him home all better, if only his body would cooperate. And his mind. I mentioned the Alzheimer's already, but think about it in these terms: The nurses and doctors tell him something to do or not to do and he can't remember what it is. It is difficult for him to remember what he should do. He hates being in the hospital but he likes the constant attention from the staff. I understand as I get my personable (Shut up!) nature from him. He is being honored at the end of the month as they are decommissioning the NCO Training Academy he founded and was eventually named after. (See, hero.) I did not know about this until recently and when I asked him about it his response was, "Well, since it isn't located in Texas, it didn't seem important." God bless him.
Randomly, because I have been wanting to talk about it for quite some time now, but I didn't know who to ramble at. I have fallen in love with a beautiful girl who doesn't even know i exist. It's not as bad as I make it sound but it's not the situation I would like it to be. Like anyone is ever in the dating situation they want to be in (Matt and Shawn say nothing) She makes me want to send her flowers and write her bad poetry. Seriously bad haikus and so forth. I already wrote one, but I am not strong enough to post it. I don't even have the balls to show it to her. (The poem, she's already seen the other thing) At least I did that well. Feels nice to be good at something, but I would seriously cut off my toe to have an emotional connection with someone (read: female) that lasts more than a weekend.
Well, now that I feel like a total wuss I will leave you with this final thought:

The stupid cannot be held responsible for their stupidity.
The Hell they can't.
We are not talking about people with disabilities here, we are talking about morons who think like that.

Dodd told CNN's Dana Bash and Wolf Blitzer that Obama administration officials wanted the language added to an amendment limiting bonuses that could be paid by those companies. He said they were afraid that without it, the government would face numerous lawsuits.
On Tuesday, Dodd denied to CNN that he had anything to do with adding the language, which has been used by officials at AIG to justify paying millions of dollars in bonuses to executives after receiving federal money.
As outrage over the AIG bonuses spreads and finger-pointing continues, lawmakers are trying to convince the public that it isn't their fault.

So this is making the rounds on Libertarian and Republican blogs. If this gets media traction, I suspect this AIG bonus situation is going to be Obama's first real political (as opposed to genuine) problem.
Quoth (with hyperbolic language taken out as it doesn't add to the message):
You know those AIG bonuses making national news that the Democrats are all upset about?
Chris Dodd: For AIG bonuses before he was against them.
"While the Senate constructed the $787 billion stimulus last month, Dodd unexpectedly added an executive-compensation restriction to the bill. That amendment provides an 'exception for contractually obligated bonuses agreed on before Feb. 11, 2009, which exempts the very AIG bonuses" they are outraged, OUTRAGED about.
To review, Democrat Dodd added an amendment specifically protecting those bonuses, the Democrat Congress passed the bill, and Democrat President signed it into law days later.
And now Democrats are outraged that AIG has done this?!?
Here's a bonus:
"Sen. Dodd was AIG’s largest single recipient of campaign donations during the 2008 election cycle with $103,100"

Once upon a time, during the last two weeks before Christmas, four of Santa's elves got sick and the trainee elves did not produce toys as fast as the regular ones. Santa began to feel the Pre-Christmas pressure.
Then Mrs. Claus told Santa her Mother was coming to visit, which stressed Santa even more.
When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of them were about to give birth and two others had jumped the fence and were out, Heaven knows where.
Then when he began to load the sleigh, one of the floorboards cracked, the toy bag fell to the ground and all the toys were scattered.
Frustrated, Santa went in the house for a cup of apple cider and a shot of rum. When he went to the cupboard, he discovered the elves had drunk all the cider and hidden the liquor. In his frustration, he accidentally dropped the cider jug, and it broke into hundreds of little glass pieces all over the kitchen floor. He went to get the broom and found that mice had eaten all the straw off the end of the broom.
Just then the doorbell rang and irritated Santa marched to the door, yanked it open and there stood a little angel with a great big Christmas tree. The angel said very cheerfully, "Merry Christmas, Santa. Isn't this a lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Where would you like me to stick it?"
And so began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas tree.
