Rethinking the Elementary

Oddly enough, in the past few days, I have been slapped in the face with the contradiction of a very basic philosophical premise on which I have been incorrect for my entire life. If I have never been offered definitive proof of the existence of something, I cannot accept that premise. When new information comes to light that contradicts something that I have held as factual, I have trouble accepting the premise. Yet, I cannot deny the facts of anything when given the evidence of that very premise.

That said, I was WRONG on something, so that means I cannot allow myself ANY more mistakes this year. Doing that for six months is going to be pretty tough, so I must be a little more careful for a while. Tip-toeing through life is really not my style, so I might exceed my one mistake a year limit this year. Que sera, it is kinda like I had to add a mistake to every year for the past twenty-five years, so my record is SHOT. TO. HELL.

However, the premise of exactly how bad our economy is doing continues to be reinforced daily. In case you were unaware, the DJIA is DOWN -27.76 since President Hopey McChangerson took office. So, at BEST, FLAT. You would never know this by watching the Barrystream Media, you would be SHOCKED to actually find out that things continue to head to the cellar.

Do not forget that on July 24, 2009, the federally mandated minimum wage shall be increased yet again forcing even more millions of citizens into unemployment and causing a huge spike in illegal immigration. This is GOOD to President Jughead, though. Here are some graphs and stuff that kinda calls Barry's folks out on their lying.

What about folks that have predicted the economic future with startling accuracy? At some point, normal people must accept the fact that we are being lied to by our "trusted sources." Can anyone figure out WHY? And still they continue.

Funny, that it took so long to find the writings of our new moron President from college, huh? Come to find out, he kinda HATES THE UNITED STATES!

(By the way, what exactly is UP with Barry's "life partner?" Good Lord, she is Worf!)

The toughest lady in the political scene today, TAKES OFF THE GLOVES. This is about to get fun, folks. Will Chris Matthews send a dribble of urine down his tingling leg? Will Keith the Olberdouche lose his shit? Odds say YES.

Billy Ayers writes some more stuff for Barry's diary.

Muslims are ALL ABOUT PEACE, you know. (By the way, this is in the United States.)

We done run outta Pow-wie!

Please take the time to comment.

Paul, I was gonna ask if we could guess what you were wrong about...but you already gave it away on Haloscan.

I had my own idea to offer, but never mind.

I saw that morphing deal on your favorite blog this morning...hilarious.

I hope Sarah cleans all clocks, now that she gets a free throw.

And, my friend, I am not surprised at all by the Arabfeast in Dearborn, MI. I have a friend that is of Arab descent (his folks came here from Yemen...and I'll call him Gerald). He's technically a Muslim. But he smokes, drinks too much, his Arab wife wears shorts, and...well never mind.

He was born in Dearborn, and his Daddy retired as a line worker for General Motors. I met his Daddy once while he was visiting him here in Louisiana, and he tried to convince me to study Islam.

When I told him that I wasn't interested, he got a bit "irritated." The longer our discussion went on, the more "irritated" his Daddy got. Gerald (not his real name) had to give me the "high-sign" to make an exit from his convenience store before all hell broke loose.

Since I like Gerald, and consider him a friend, I made a swift exit. Those people are truly nuts!

Have you ever been cursed in Arabic while you are making a gracious exit from a convenience store? My friend Gerald (not his real name) had taught me enough Arabic (and I'm not kidding)to know that I had just been slapped.

But, wisdom is the better part of valor...and my Nutty Buddy was melting...

Ha! My word verification is "pootit."

Yes, Andy, I have cussed in Arabic. Many times. And yes, they are beyond crazy. But, it is an evil kind of crazy too, not the fun kind.

I hereby give you permission to use one of my mistakes for the year. That should give you some breathing room.

that whole Michelley-poo / Warf thing will give me nightmares, thank you very much.

As for Islam? I rediscovered thisawesome video last night after I said I was going to bed and didn't. Yeah, we've all seen it, but since it is funny as hell and hits the nail on the head, we should make it a weekly viewing ritual.

You = wrong once a year, maybe
Liberals = wrong every time mouth is opened to insert feet

I'd say you have a comfortable edge ;)

CJ, I might have to take you up on the offer. Crowder's old stuff is so much better than the "Louder with Crowder" stuff, too.

Skunkfeathers, just like in golf, I do not gauge my performance against lesser people.
