The Minutemen

Just took an hour and a half out of my day to listen to the Minutemen's disc, Double Nickels On The Dime. Time well spent and I recommend it highly.

Word on the net is that my good pal Johnny Knoxville is concerned that not enough people are logging on to the Jackassworld web-site. Well fair enough he here I am getting the word out. Go to the site and look at the stuff and read the other stuff. It's worth taking the time to do. Put down the porn and pick up the Jackassworld. Yeah. Good clean fun.

The right thing to do

I just read that there is a huge controversy in Seattle, Washington, USA because a couple had their smooch-fest interrupted at a Seattle Mariners baseball game. Apparently the lip-lock antics were making somebody "uncomfortable" and she went crying to the ushers, one of whom had to ask the couple to "knock it off" or "get a room". Now this is just rude. A young couple sharing air should NEVER be interrupted. It's just not done. This particular situation is especially interesting because the young couple involved were both chicks, or "lesbians" to get all technical about it. Even so, the correct response (other than just leaving them alone) would have been to whip out the video phone, grab some "footage" and put it on the Internet. I bet the whiner is kicking herself now! You bet.

PS: I just thought of something; this wasn't some sort of "anti-gay" thing, was it? That would be just terrible. I suppose, if I squint, hold my head just so and have my feet about shoulder width apart and my knees slightly bent, not only would I look stupid but I could sort of understand. The way I look at it is that gay guys don't bother me at all. They and I are not after the same thing, if you know what I mean, so I don't worry about them. Gay chicks, or 'lesbians' as they are known by some, are a different matter all together. They and I are after the same thing and out here in the wild we call that "com-pe-ti-tion". Even so though, I think I still would have tried to score some footage for the Internet. Oh well.

So today may be the day that Senator Clinton's run for the Democratic Presidential nomination flares out like a Messerschmidt over London in 1941 (we in the "business" call that an "obscure reference", or maybe it's just a "bad reference"). The last two primaries are today (South Dakota and Montana) and it looks as though Senator Obama will get all the delegates he needs to grab the nomination. Now I know this is really none of my business but I think the Democrats may have dropped the ball here. Senator Obama may be a pretty good guy and all, but Senator Clinton's moves have been totally presidential this past little while.

As everybody remembers the Primaries in Florida and Michigan were held earlier than party rules allow, and thus the results have been changed by the powers-that-be in the Democratic National Committee. Senator Clinton knew the rules and decided to disregard them and now wants the results kept as they were, where she won both primaries (Senator Obama withdrew his name from the Michigan primary but was not allowed to withdraw from the Florida one). This willful disregard of the rules is totally presidential. Rules whether domestic or international have no place in the presidential vocabulary. The sovereignty or other nations is at best just a silly rumour started by those who support terrorism and don't like democracy and freedom. Or so it seems these days. Anyway, do what seems best Democrats. The whole world is watching.

It's an election year down south!

If it weren’t for the entertainment factor of the whole deal I don’t know that I would pay any attention at all to the election currently going on with our friends to the south (the United States). As usual it started out with a pack of folks from both parties, most of whom you had never heard of before and will never hear of again, all squabbling over who is the most religious and family oriented. A couple of debates later and the pack was whittled down to some serious contenders, and after some of these folks made some serious (or not so serious) mistakes then it should have come down to the final two candidates, plus some independents, making that final push for the White House. That last bit hasn’t come to pass yet and if the Democrats keep carrying on the way they are it won’t happen until late August.

Senator Hillary Clinton (D – New York) believes that Primary’s held in the states of Michigan and Florida should count, even though they were both held earlier than her party allows and are considered illegal by the Democratic party. Senator Barack Obama (D – Illinois) removed his name from the Michigan ballot but was not allowed to remove his name from the Florida ballot due to state law. He did this when the Democratic National Committee said that the primary’s would not count. Senator Clinton apparently doesn’t think that the rules of her party are very important and allowed her name to stand in Michigan (as well as, Florida) but didn’t campaign in either state and now thinks that the results should count (she won both primary’s)

Surprisingly enough the bigwigs of the Democratic Party disagree. Last Saturday (May 31) the DNC rules and bylaws committee said that half-delegations will be allowed from Michigan and Florida at the Convention, August 23 – 28, and Senator Obama will be given all delegates that voted ‘uncommitted’. The Clinton campaign doesn’t like this and has said that they will be raising a stink right up until the convention unless full-delegations are allowed from each state with their votes intact. Potentially they could appeal to the party’s credentials committee, and I suspect they probably will. From the little I’ve seen, or paid attention to, Senator Clinton is not one to give up real easy. Yeah, it very much looks as though the Democratic Party is shooting itself in the foot, or feet. Part of me does wonder if they are doing all this on purpose just so they will lose in November and then they put off having to deal with the mess in Iraq for a few more years. I wonder, are the Democrats that Machiavellian?

I believe that as a Canadian I’m supposed to hope that the Democratic candidate (whoever it turns out to be) wins the election in November. Realistically I suspect the Republicans would be the better party to win, being-a-Canadian-wise (if that’s a word, and even if it isn’t). Supposedly the Republicans believe in free-trade rather than protectionism, (although I think that’s a load of butt-junk), while the Democrats are partially financed by the Unions in the US, and more likely to have protectionist policies, which is only right. US politicians should protect US worker’s jobs and the Republicans don’t seem to worry about it as much as the Democrats do.

One thing that would worry me about the Republican candidate is his temper and lack of good judgment. He tends to come across as the “folksy” type, but I don’t think that is an accurate description of Senator John McCain (R – Arizona). In 1992 during his run for the Senate he called his wife a “trollop” and a “c*nt” (he later said that he had been tired at the time because it had been a long day. The President of the United States, of course, never has long days). In 1998 at a Republican Senate fund-raiser he made a joke involving President Bill Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea. She was 18-years old at the time. A truly good man never would have even thought of making a joke about a young lady like that, never mind saying it. This is Senator John McCain. He is probably also the next President of the United States.

So it’s a gong show and it looks again as though the voters in the United States will have to make their choice much as we do here in Canada. You’re not voting for the best person, but for the least worst. Good luck with that.
