Driving home from work today I witnessed a state worker who was practically asleep while holding the "stop/slow" sign to direct traffic in a construction area. (Rest assured I will drive that way again except with my camera) During the rest of my commute where I was going 20mph in a 45 zone I got to thinking, instead of paying someone $14/hour to sleep while holding a sign why don't we instead pay a homeless guy minimum wage to sleep why holding a sign?
If liberals were really serious about helping the homeless then they would happily sacrifice a few union jobs to give people a hand up. Not likely...
In only four days we begin confirmation hearings for John Roberts. Since even the media is conceding defeat on this one I think that we should start our campaign to let Bush know we need a reliable conservative to fill the other open seat on the court.
FRC has a short and sweet ode to Renquist that is worth reading.
OFF is reporting that gun confiscation has begun:
"NEW ORLEANS, Sept. 8 - Waters were receding across this flood-beaten city today as police officers began confiscating weapons, including legally registered firearms, from civilians in preparation for a mass forced evacuation of the residents still living here."
Real good idea, lawless gangs are raping, killing, and looting so government decides to disarm the law abiding citizens. I'd like to know who made this decision. One more reason to buy and sell privately so that the gun grabbers don't have reliable registration lists.
With regards to racism, which is a charge being thrown around frequently due to the hurricane, I have a question for the media and the democrats: how come you never talk about the Asians?
When you talk about about academic performance it's always "blacks and Hispanics" lag behind whites. Why don't they discuss Asians? Is it just because they are successful or is it because they don't like the reason for their success? The fact that Asians generally have a traditional family (married dad and mom) and emphasize hard work and success shows what works.
This is in contradistinction to "cultures" that emphasize using broken English and dressing like gang members and don't seem concerned with 75% out-of-wedlock birth rates. Wonder why those guys aren't doing so well...
I had quite a few more random rants for tonight but blogger ate my post. *dons tin-foil hat* "Blogger is part of a vast left-wing conspiracy that has been out to get me since... well, since I started have delusions of grandeur." Goodnight.
