I don’t like you. You arrive way too early and draaaaaaaag on. Three-thirty in the morning and I’m awake after sending the Redneck to another week of Hell away from his home and his family. For six years, you’ve been the absolute suckiest day. You’re even worse than the first of the month when every body and their brother wants money from me. And when the first of the month is a MONDAY!! Well, fuck that shit is all I have to say. Of course, if we got rid of you, then Tuesday would be the new Monday. But really, can you just back off?
To The Boys on Wall Street
I really want to thank you for fucking up the Redneck’s retirement. I mean, he was looking at having to work until he was seventy anyway and now you’ve guaranteed it. You assholes have stored up millions over the years, living high off the deals made by dumb smucks like us who just don’t want to die in a fucking nursing home. I really gotta hand it to you. You’ve fucked things up royally and now the rest of the world is sliding into financial trouble. Congratulations. I hope all that “living well” will be enough because, if there’s any justice, there’s a hot place in Hell for you assholes.
To The Politicians
Do you REALLY want my opinion? You’ve been calling but you’re not asking the right questions. Do you want to know why I advocate gun rights? It isn’t because I’m some kind of loopy Conservative with entitlement issues. It’s because I’m starting to believe the only way you assholes will keep listening to us at all is if you are just a little worried we MIGHT be heavily armed out here. Call me a conspiracy theorist, but the pecking away at ALL our rights makes me think you don’t want us to threaten you. The gun bans, the Patriot Act, environmental laws all seemed to be aimed at controlling and tamping down on the American population. I believe that guns should be kept out of the hands of criminals but no gun ban has been proven to do that. I believe terrorism should be fought tooth and nail. I believe that we need to take responsibility for cleaning up our industrial messes and preventing new ones. BUT the way you all have decided to deal with these issues is to punish all instead of just the offenders. November 4th is coming, people. I’m not staying home, though you’d like me to.
(I kind of sound militant in the last post. No worries. We don’t call our house a compound. And my kids still go to public school.)
To The What You Ought To Know Guys
You took on a VERY hot issue and, though I admire your guts, I have to say I wouldn’t do it. But since you did, look at all the interest it generated. Over a hundred comments on your website alone (not including the ones on YouTube) with lively discussion and not too much ugliness. I still don’t know how I’m going to vote on the issue come November 4th, but your perspective on it was interesting.
To Elaina Huntley
What would I do without you? In the last month, you’ve read stuff last minute, critiqued a short so I could get it in to my publisher before the end of October, and generally cheered me on through all sorts of writing ups and downs. You’re awesome and I lurrrrrrrve you. Plus, I’m a little jealous of you. After all, you get some awesome “theoretical” experiences that I don’t. (Yes, that is an inside joke, but if you REALLY want to know what it is, you’ll have to join Romance Divas and post fifty times to get into the Steamy Section. Buhahahahahahahahaw.) You’re going places, Elaina, and I can’t wait to see you kick ass and take names with your writing.
Even cheap and bitter, I love you.
