Jesse Jackson Arrested Naaawwwww, never! I just can't believe it. A protest? No way. A rally? Blocking off a street, causing chaos? Not Jesse Jackson, the Civil Rights "peacekeeper". ~Sarcasm~

The Deaf At work, there's this elderly couple that comes in reqularly and they're deaf. Luckly, I spent my junior and senior years at a school that was made up of about 50% deaf kids, so I became fluent in ASL. I can communticate with this couple and it just makes their day, but not being around the deaf anymore has really affected my signing. I've forgotten so much. I'm considering going down to the half-price books store one of these days and buying a book on Sign Language and learning it all over again. When I'm "talking" with this couple, It reminds me so much of my friends from school and makes me wonder how they're getting along in life now. I miss the silence. It was so peaceful sitting in class not having to hear annoying teenage voices or abnoxious teachers yelling. (A few of my teachers were also deaf) It makes me feel good to be able to help someone who cannot hear. It has to be tough going out in the public doing simple things like, shopping, eating out, going to the doctor, etc and knowing not a single person around can understand you. Most workplaces find it a plus, especially here in Texas to be bilingual but you never see on an application a place for ASL. You see spanish, which I know some from the mexican guys at the restaraunt I used to work at, Arabic, which I know a few words from the guys at the restaurant I used to work at too, and every other country in the world almost. The man and his wife come in, just smiling and waving at me. I try and go out of my way to help them and they know that and appreciate it. It just make me start thinking about relearning sign language again.

Also, off the subject, my friends at Icecream Headache have their comments up, so go there and tell them how much you like their blog... NOW!

The Texas Democrat Stunts Never End
Well whattdya know:
Airline makes room for Lee

Members of Congress often use weekend plane trips back to their districts as a way to unwind after a hectic bout of lawmaking. Which could explain why Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) demanded a whole row of seats to herself on a recent Continental flight from Washington to Houston.

Jackson Lee usually gets first-class upgrades from the airline. But on this particular flight first class was full. After cabin attendants delivered the bad news and showed her to the coach section, Jackson Lee exploded, said one witness.

“When she saw that she had to sit with other people, she started shouting that she was in Congress and worked hard. She was really loud. Everybody in the plane could hear.”

Frequent flyers say that such outbursts are common whenever Jackson Lee is on board. The Continental crew seemed to take the whole situation in stride. Attendants scurried around to find her other accommodations, and once Jackson Lee got her own row of seats she quieted down.

Later in the flight she even paid a friendly visit to the people she had refused to sit with. According to a nearby passenger, Jackson Lee “handed out her business cards and invited them to stop by her office.”


Thanks to Acidman for the link

Tired
Sunday will be my 7th straight day of work. No days off for me. I'm tired, bitchy, moody and probably will not be blogging much for the next few days.

Liberal, Conservative and Texan Answers

Question:

You're walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children. Suddenly, a dangerous looking man with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, raises the knife, and charges.

You are carrying a Glock .40 and you are an expert shot. You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family. What do you do?

Liberal Answer:

Well, that's not enough information to answer the question!
Does the man look poor or oppressed?
Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?
Could we run away?
What does my wife think?
What about the kids?
Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand?
What does the law say about this situation?
Does the Glock have an appropriate safety built into it?
Why am I carrying a loaded gun and what kind of message does this send to society and my children?
Is it possible he'd be happy with just killing me?
Does he definitely want to kill me or would he just be content to wound me?
If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get away while he was stabbing me?
This is all so confusing!
I need to debate this with some friends for a few days to try to come to a conclusion.

Conservative Answer:

BANG!

Texan's Answer:

Sent to me from the lovely Driver Of Dr. Pepper Truck Shot While Driving this happened 15 minutes away from where I live. It could have been me. Damn.

Officer Shot While Serving Warrant Good Grief.

I used to live near this neighborhood about 3 years ago.
THIS could have been me too! 14 of the 261 music downloading lawsuits are in North Texas.

More Shootings, Madonna, Yoko, and Other Fuckwittery

Now I've never been one for strict gun control. Making guns illegal to citizens will not keep them out of the criminals hands, it will only make the responsible law abiding citizen unable to protect himself. There should be some gun control though. I don't believe any sicko off the street should be able to walk in and buy a gun, but taking them away from everyone is only saying to burglars and thugs, "Hey! I'm unarmed!, go ahead, rob my house, take my shit, I don't have a way to protect myself!" But crap like THIS is getting out of hand. It's everywhere. Dallas has the highest crime rate of ANYWHERE, thanks to the racist, used-to-be police chief Bolton, and we see more of it every day.

Madonna is publishing her first children's book. Oh, isn't she an inspiration to all. Using children to make MORE millions. Like she isn't rich enough. She says is isn't about the fame and fortune, so if that's the case Madonna, take every bit of the money you earn from that "book" and give it to the children. Yeah right. This from a woman who tongues Brittany and Christina onstage in front of, hmmm, who watches these awards? Kids! This from a woman who claims being a whore sexuality is something to flaunt and show to the world, This from a woman who fucks Dennis Rodman. Man, what great role model for children everywhere.

Yoko Fucko Has Clothes Cut Off In Performance
Yeah, we all want to see that. Great way to make a point. Now what was it again? Oh, your protesting something? Nawww.
Arrgh! IDIOTS!
