“There is one thing I’m not going to do. I am not going to pull our troops off the battlefield before the mission is complete,” Bush said in a keynote speech at the University of Latvia just before a summit of the NATO defence alliance.
I’m not a homeowner yet, bu I decided long ago that when I am, I will never belong to a homeowner’s association. People claim that they are there to protect the value of all the properties in the association, and perhaps they do, but at what cost? You give up the right to design your own lawn space, to pick the color of your house, and to decorate as you wish. You pay a mortgage, taxes, and association fees just to be bullied around on your own property.

Something else about this bugs the hell out of me….. the fact that “a few people” believe that the peace sign is a sign of Satanism. Everyone else there knows that it isn’t. Why are facts constantly subordinated in favor of belief? Why is it her responsibility to cater to their misinformation, and not THEIR responsibility to learn the truth?

I refuse to respect nonsense just because someone who is too lazy or stupid to do some research believes in it. I don’t care if it’s religion, politics, or whatever – either back it up with something I can research, or admit that it is only an unproven belief.
He has nothing against the kitties, but seems to be wondering why they were necessary when HE was already there…….
I have no idea why Wordpress doesn’t put the pictures where the damn cursor is……

Hint: I bet Paula wins.
Now that I’ve got the blog working, the home computer is ready for the ol’ dirt nap. First, it had problems rebooting, which is VERY inconvenient in a laptop, and now the cpu fan sounds like it’s grinding coffee. Posts might not be as regular as they usually are for awhile.
I guess I know what I’m buying myself for Christmas.
