Maiello's Book-Almost Hits the Metaphorical Stands
Miami Fans Mistakenly Chant "Let's Go Eat" During Playoff Game
"The true measure of a man is not his intelligence or how high he rises in this freak establishment. No, the true measure of a man is this: how quickly can he respond to the needs of others and how much of himself he can give." — Philip K. Dick If you want that good feeling that comes from doing things for other folks then you have to pay for it in abuse and misunderstanding. Zora Neale Hurston
I design databases, I write code, I analyze data and people think it is a super power, I just never correct them.
For years the idea haunted me, if a Republican became a Democrat in the deep North what adjustments would she have to make?
And that is how it began, that fateful day in 1984 was the day I decided to infiltrate the Democratic party and turn them all into Liberal Republicans! I knew I could do it if I could just find a way to fit in first, to blend in, so I went to the doctor's office for some help. [Read more]
It all began with a Michael Moore visit to the View. It was nothing short of appalling. So we will call it Exhibit 1:
We spent the night in Drummond, Montana the night before the ride. Drummond is a tiny down in Montana, it is only 30 miles from Phillipsburg (Pburg) and Pburg is where the ride began, August 20th, 2011, high altitude and all. I was hoping I would be ready, I'd been training religiously, doing more than 220 miles a week and trying hard to add as many hills as possible, because training at sea level is not the same as high altitude riding.
Yeah this comes out of a comment yesterday and I want to know what the progressive plan is for getting more progressive legislators into the government, because that is the pertinent question here. So before I head out on a 50 miler today, I am going to ask the question, what is your plan to getting what you want?
Let's revisit my first question and I will take out the part everyone keys on, about taking the President down, it's snarky I know and too easy to fight about. I've conveniently reviewed some other primary challenges to sitting presidents in our more recent history, here it is again in case you missed it: [Read more]
Let's get this out there, Rep. Joe Walsh is discrediting a good name. The Joe Walsh I remember, played guitar had his own band and sang songs like All Night Laundromat Blues.. this guy, well he just doesn't seem like he is that much fun and he is trashing what is otherwise a very good name! I know I almost voted for the real Joe Walsh in 1980, the best part was I saw him in concert twice that year, man that was a great Eagles tour. Oh, I digress, because this Joe Walsh is definitely not that Joe Walsh. [Read more]
On snap, Wendy Deng has some great reflexes! She spikes a shaving cream pie, intended for her husband back into the attackers face! I mean this is actually some pretty good stuff! Who knew there was something to be admired about Rupert Murdoch... that is right, his wife. This happened about 10 minutes ago.
I thought today would be a good day to record some hearings! However I didn't realize I would get to see this:
I am training for a 120 mile ride in the Pintler Mountains this August. It's going to be a challenge, I live right at sea level. I am excited but anxious. The CHaFE was a pretty grueling ride, some of those hills we long assed climbs, not to difficult to complete but I actually got off my bike and walked a quarter mile during that ride, I've never done that before.
That sounds like a Lyle Lovett song, Our Big Mistake; we are repeating it over and over and over again, from the 1968 election to the present. Isn't it sort of sad, we gave up working from the inside to continue to move government in a more progressive way? [Read more]
I like to take the IPad preloaded with trail maps to go hiking, that way, you probably can't get lost. Well I probably could get lost, for some reason I seem without a good sense of direction, thank god I am married, although we do spend much of our time recovering from me turning the wrong way everywhere we go, but the I-Pad is truly and awesome thing and keeps me from getting lost often. So I had this map loaded onto my IPad before I left home. Port Gamble Trail Map. [Read more]
