Random Rants for June 2008

Hello again, Lee-tards.  Now that my move to Mexico..I mean, Maryland is just about done, it’s time for more Random Rants.

– If you are reading this website, there is a good chance you didn’t see “Sex and the City: The Movie”.  I guess the hype was alot bigger than the final product.  Sorry to hear it, SATC folks.  However, in a related note, congratulations to Sarah Jessica Parker for coming in third at the Belmont Stakes.

– For Fathers’ Day, I was going to do my part and volunteer to be a Big Brother for a kid who might not have a dad.  Did you know they did background checks?  Apparantley someone who says “My name is Brian and I like to drink” for a living is not considered a qualified candidate.

– Last month a helicopter crashed into a hospital in Grand Rapids.  I thought to myself, “well, that’s convenient”.

– Congratulations again to the Pittsburgh Penguins to going all the way to the Stanley Cup finals.  During the entire playoffs, they only lost 6 games.  Out of those 6 losses, 5 were officiated by referees Brad Watson and Marc Joanette.  Coincidence?

– NASCAR is currently being sued for racial discrimination and sexual harassment.  Can you believe it?  A redneck organization like NASCAR being named in a sexual harrassment and racial discrimination case?  What’s next, players in the NBA being named in paternity cases?

– The environmental movement uses the environment and animal species as an excuse for putting the means of production (the land) off limits to the American citizen. Putting the means of production off limits to the citizen is the definition of communism. Putting gas and oil off limits to the citizen is the definition of insanity.  The Government estimates that the outer continental shelf has 76 billion barrels of oil in it that are recoverable.  Let me put that into perspective. 76 billion barrels is enough to replace every single barrel of oil that we import from everywhere outside of North America for the next 34 years at our current pace.  On June 11th, Congress voted against the U.S. drilling on the continental shelf.  Keep that in mind next time you vote for your Congressman.

Till next time….drinks are on me!
