Why I married this man.

Instead of focusing on a task at work, Mr. Stoney wrote a little essay on why Bush is an idiot. Keep in mind that at the beginning of this year he was a card carrying Republican. I have since shown him the light.

Flip-Flop Politician
By Mr. Stoney

I am for government standing by people financially and not telling them how to live. But I am for a constitutional amendment that outlaws the most intimate part of your personal relationships.

Outsourcing? Education is the answer. American workers shouldn’t worry about losing their low skilled jobs overseas because education (not experience) will get them better jobs. Forget that people can’t stop their lives to go to school, especially with tuition going through the roof. Regardless of how long it will take you to go back to school and learn something new, in the mean time, unemployment coverage will not be extended.

Instead of raising the minimum wage to help the increasing number of people living at or below the poverty line, especially single mothers trying to make ends meet, again education is the answer. Minimum wage by definition is for UNSKILLED labor. People that are trying to get an education or people that will never be able to get an education need the minimum wage.

Immigrants are welcome to come if they can work and they should be given a temporary card that identifies them as productive members of our society. But, if there are Americans that want unskilled jobs that will never pay more than $5.15/hour, an immigrant with a temporary work permit will not be allowed to work. Fortunately, no American will want a job that will never pay more than $5.15/hour.

How can you tell Americans that you won’t raise the minimum wage because Americans should go out and get an education and become a white collar career person, while giving a tax break to companies that outsource white collar jobs to India, and at the same time allow illegal immigrants to take over the job you are currently qualified for? I guess you better start studying!

On a second note, I watched my cat stalk and kill a field mouse today. She would pin it down ("it" being as large as a softball!!!) with ONE CLAW. And groom her other paw. Then release the mouse. Then repeat. It was like watching Orcas toss baby seals about on National Geographic. Sad, but AWESOME.

On a third note, crazydiamondsue gave me the biggest belly laugh of the week when she pointed out that I wrote in an email that I had moths in my PANTY and not PANTRY like I had meant. She and elcazavampiros are coming to see me next Thursday, so I'm sure they debated whether or not that was such a good idea. Ha ha ha!

On a last note, big ups to karabair for inviting me to submit a religious essay for possible publication. Naturally the topic I chose was Mormonism and Sex. Good times! It's all proofread, beta'd and shipped off for approval. *fingers crossed*

I promise to post more Wee!Spike this weekend, if you promise to laugh with me later!

I so want to read both of those essays.

Also, put bay leaves in your pantry to repel moths. I tell you this from the hard-won experience was gleaned from the Horror of the Maggotty Graham Crackers. I wouldn't recommend bay leaves for your panties, though, as they are rather sharp-edged and pointy.

I promise to post more Wee!Spike this weekend, if you promise to laugh with me later!

I think I can safely promise that.

Hmm. I put his essay here, but I don't see it. Off to edit...

And thanks for the Bay Leaves!! I KNEW there was a home remedy, but I couldn't remember it. Guh. I have taken two showers today from the morror of the larvae in the oatmeal, and the weevil in the corn meal. No more meal.

D'oh. Forgot a ">" after the cut text, so it ate the essay by Mr. Stoney. Is fixed, is there, is ready.

And I will STILL hypnotize you and make you mine!!

Isn't he great? He stomached Farenheit 9/11 twice so he could take proper notes and look up each fact that struck a chord. He wanted to be able to tell my dad "BOO-yah! Your bush boy's a bitch."

I'm wrapping my moth-eaten draw'ahs in plastic to maintain their integrity. And I'll see you boy-ahs ahftah thu woe-wah, Mr. Main and Mr. Hazard.

One down, a zillion to go.
Kudos to Mr. Stoney for becoming one of the well informed. Still have to see Farenheit, I just haven't gotten out to buy any DVD's lately. That and I haven't sufficiently prepared myself for an evening of complete disgust for the Bush status quo.

Re: One down, a zillion to go.
Heads up: when they saw graphic images, they mean it. If you can look at some of the photos taken during Vietnam of people being exucuted, then you can take this.

It hurt me to watch such sad things, but I felt it was important to see what our military has been told to do by the religious zealots running this country. And the reason why we are there is laid out so simply, I don't know how ANYONE can still support Bush.

He is. Aren't you sweet for saying so? He's preening now that he's home and I'm reading the compliments to him. Another feedback whore is born...

Speaking of, Wee!Spike is up, with the second half coming tomorrow!

so excited about your essay! do you get actual cash or just adulation?
Oct. 16th, 2004 05:49 am (UTC)
EEE!! I know, me too. I have no idea if I'd get paid. I'm assuming not, so I don't make a frowny face when they tell me that just having my name set permanently in 16 point type should be good enough.

Karabair says they are still shopping for the publisher now that they have the book to work with. We'll see...

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
