….I'm so depressed….

I am totally with that web server at I know that it has some issues that are beyond my understanding, but we are at day 101 of the transition to the evil empire. I know I'm over-exaggerating, but geez, go watch the first three Star Wars and see how the Emperor seizes command. It is scary in its similarities.

There was is great website that I saw today that talks about what has happened in the first 100 days. Personally, I don't think we have ever seen changes so drastic and extreme in the history of this nation. The thing is that they are all un-American - They are all based in this socialist power grabbing agenda.

Now we have a new bill to protect gays from speech. Homosexuality is purely a moral issue. It is not like being a certain race, or being a certain anything . . . it is a choice as is being sexual or celibate. There is a great book out there called "on liberty" by John Stuart Mills. In it he is talking about legitimate and illegitimate laws. He makes a great point. The only legitimate law is one designed to protect a person from another. Just because someone believes that something is "good" for you it doesn't have the authority to be a law. Hurting someone is a universal crime, regardless of what that reason should be. There should not be some special consideration for protecting someone more than another for whatever reason. However, with this law we not only give special consideration, but we theoretically restrict speech regarding this issue. We think it is for the good that people do not talk about against gays. That is not good enough to be a law. It is called tyranny of the majority and is as despicable as any despot.

Anyway, I'm just a web blogger. I'm depressed. . .

Now leave me to sulk alone. . .

Arlen Specter (DB)

How is it that at 79 years old you decide that you are a democrat and not a republican? Is it that you have some end of life revelation? Or, is it that at this point in our history, out parties are so closely related that there is no difference?

    It is cliché to talk about how one dislikes politicians, but Arlen Specter and his likes are some of the worst humans around. To be fair, it takes a particular type of douche bag to be a politician in the first place. I liked how Kinky Friedman described them…to paraphrase…I've never liked politicians because to me Poly means many and Tics are blood thirsty little insects. However, theoretically there should be some fundamental differences between Republicans and Democrats that really would only allow a change between parties after some sort of drastic change in your morals or outlook on life.

    So, when looking at this guy I would implore anyone who is in his constituency to seriously ask some tough questions about this guy as a basic honest, moral person. He has lied to the people of Pennsylvania about what he stands for and is therefore not a good representative of the people. The idea of being a representative of the people in Washington is the core aspect to our system. Your Congressman is a person who should closely represent you. They should be the people who are your voice to say the things that you want to say, to be a moral representation of you, to stand as an economic representation of you, to stand as a person who you hire to fight for the things that you believe in.

    I cannot help but to believe that a person who, at 80, has fundamentally changed his political stance is nothing more than a liar and is trying to win another term as a congressman than is a person who has had some fundamental change in his outlook. If this is true, then he is nothing more than a liar and if that is true, I cannot accept the possibility that the people of Pennsylvania hold a liar as a fair representation of their beliefs and values.

    The people of Pennsylvania need to rise up and reject him as a leader. Both Republicans and Democrats need to work to crush his run for office next year. It is time to find new blood. He is a representative of all that is wrong with politics and not the people of Pennsylvania. It would be better to have some, either Democrat or Republican, who is truly a representative of the people of Pennsylvania than this dirt bag. Get out and vote and help to end the debacle.

So, swine flu is on the way. Essentially, the people of the US are not really doing anything differently to protect ourselves from this issue. However, I did see that Novavax stock has hit a high level of interest with investors. It would be nice if the average Joe started to take note and precautions.

For some reason, we just don't seem to really believe that bad things can happen in the US. Mexico has shut down everything trying to contain this issue, but we are still letting people roll on through our borders and airports. I saw that even some Asian nations have set up check points for people entering their countries from Mexico and the US.

    I am not advocating for taking the steps that Mexico City has, at this point. However, shouldn't we be taking prudent steps that places like Europe and Aisa have? Shouldn't we be restricting travel or analyzing passengers coming from Mexico? What about a ban on pork products from Mexico? I don't know what the right steps are, but it seems we should take some steps.

    Maybe some of that Mexican abortion money that Obama has spent would have been better spent saving lives by vaccinations in Mexico City, instead of taking lives of the unborn. I guess we will all know in time how this will play out. Just as a reminder, 50,000,000 were killed from the flu in 1918. Wiki tells me that was somewhere between 2.5-5% of the world's population. If that happened again, on the low end (2.5%), we are talking somewhere around 170,000,000 deaths. To put that in perspective, there are only 5 nations in the world with populations of more than 170mm.

    Well, good luck to you. Good luck to us all. Buy your Novavax stock and make sure you get yourself a mask. As for me, I'm going to stay away from the pork tacos for awhile.
