The Twelve Hour Wait

Four years ago I voted for president on the last day of early voting, the Friday before the Big Tuesday Vote. Which makes today my four year anniversary of sitting on the floor of the Gwinnett County Justice Center for 8 hours waiting to vote for W. If you count the time I stood in line, waiting to get a number to be able to sit on the floor to wait for my turn to vote, I spent a little over 12 hours in the Gwinnett County Justice Center waiting to vote for W 4 years ago.

Brilliant!

I just saw a YouTube video over at Instapundit I had to share. It’s wonderful. My favorite quote:

If Republicans are for the rich, than that must mean that they need the rich to keep their power. And if they need the rich to keep their power, then they need to keep the rich rich to keep their power. … If that’s the case and Democrats are for the poor, then that must mean that they need the poor and they need to keep the poor that way to keep their power.

I would add that Republicans have more to gain from making the poor rich than from keeping the poor poor. But that’s just some pesky logic again. And critical thinking isn’t something they teach in public schools these days. So pay no attention. Move along.

3 Zombies 42

13 And Prudence was sore afraid, for she did hear of the people who once were dead, but walked amongst the people of the Goddess. Prudence did hear their name whispered at night upon the dark winds, and was even more afraid of the dead called Zombies.

14 And she did ponder their love of brains.

15 And Prudence found the site for Zombies who search for love. For indeed, even Zombies deserve love.

16 Prudence did realize that while Zombies do indeed need love, they also need to be destroyed. And Prudie did covet the Urban Bone Machete, Mark II. Even the Goddess was impressed by such beauty.

17 Prudence did worry, for even the beauteous Urban Bone Machete would not be enough to fight the dreaded Zombies in large numbers. And lo! Prudie did find a link that provides most useful information for surviving Zombie attacks.

18 Prudence found more reason to worry about an oncoming Zombie Apocalypse.

19 Prudence found dead pinups and was amused at Rosie the Rivited.

20 Prudence also found Lost Zombies and was amazed.

21 Prudence found Zombies from Hollywood and laughed and rolled upon the floor until her ass did fall off.

22 Prudence rejoiced at killing Zombies, even if it was only a game.

23 And Prudence did thank Mr. Brooks most fervently for his Zombie Survival Guide.

LATER:

24 And lo! Prudence found the blog of Jason Pye, he who scares neighborhood kids. And on his blog, Prudence found that President Bush shares her dislike of Zombies. And Prudence was pleased, for she found a great and noble reason to be thankful for voting for W twice.

ARRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!

I am so sick of Jim Martin’s commercials. (Jim Martin(D) is running against incumbent Saxby Chambliss(R) for US Senate here in Georgia.)

Here’s one of the commercials against Saxby Chambliss. Several of the commercials against Chambliss mention a 23% national sales tax that Chambliss supports. Well, yeah, he does support a 23% national sales tax. It’s the Fair Tax (which I support). Naturally, I have several problems with Democrats and Martin using the Fair Tax against Chambliss.

The commercials say that the Fair Tax would cause people to pay more for groceries. That’s not completely true. Sure, people would pay 23% taxes for groceries in the store. But before a person ever pays for groceries (or the taxes), that person would receive a prebate equal to the amount of money they would be expected to pay for grocery taxes.  So, in essence, there will be no grocery taxes (or taxes on essential items like clothes, for that matter).

The commercials make it seem like the Fair Tax would be enacted on top of income tax. That is not at all true. The Fair Tax legislation would abolish the IRS. The Fair Tax is intended to replace the IRS as the primary means of funding the federal government. It will not be enacted on top of the income tax. That runs counter to the purpose of the Fair Tax.

The Americans for Fair Taxation (the main people behind the Fair Tax) have a Hall of Shame up with Martin featured prominentlyas someone who has lied about the Fair Tax. I love the Pinocchio nose. That is hilarious.

Oh, and how does the Fair Tax stack up against the Messiah’s the the Old Guy’s tax plans? Here you go.

LATER: Dear God. I just answered the phone; it was one of those automatic robocalls against Chambliss. At the same time, that stupid anti-Fair Tax/anti-Chambliss commercial was playing on the TV. At. The. Same. Time.  Oy!

And lo, Prudence was sad. For her inspiration was also low;

43 And Prudence returned again to linkage, that which required only clicking, to fill her empty blog;

44 And she decided to also return to the old saw, in which she kinda  plagiarizes the sacred works of her former religion. 

45 But Prudence was afraid, for she did not want to link any whose words were political, for she was sorely tired of such bitter fighting. But the inspiration and light of the Goddess came to Prudence and Prudence knew that she could find links to words of joy  and glee  without linking to any containing words from the Messiah or the Old Guy. 

46 So Prudence did search for links.

47 Prudence found the dogs which are upside down, because dogs right side up aren’t always funny. The Goddess did laugh at the pictures for the Goddess has a sense of humor, especially when one of her favorite earth-bound creatures appears to fly and hit the ceiling.

48 Prudence found that cat spelled backwards doesn’t spell God, which she thought was obvious, but was amused nonetheless.

49 Prudence found Ginger, the cat who would be President. And Prudence did laugh at scratching the economy’s butt.

50 Prudence did wonder how much of her own odd humor was gained while she was in engineering school. But Prudence dismissed the idea that weirdness is gained with an engineering degree, for Prudence has always been weird.

51 Prudence did find from another WhoHead, the Spinster who is Twisted, that the power of boobies compels you. And Prudence was ashamed that she understood this parody and thought it hilarious.

52 Prudence found the French Dalek and wondered why no one before had thought to combine Doctor Who and Monty Python.
