I wonder why it is that when we drive by a dead opossum at the side of the road whe say “eww” or some other gross-like remark, either to ourself or even aloud. But when its a dead squirrel we say “ahh” or some other endearing comment about a poor misfortunate animal.
The old saying of “don’t say anything unless you have walked in their shoes” definately doesnt ring out in the ears of our congressmen. They already pay less of a percentage in taxes than we do and have no idea to know what it’s like to go shopping for dinner knowing you only have six dollars to spend for it. Give me a friggin break… there is no real effort being put into changing the screwed up financial system of the country.
If we are experiencing “Global Warming”, I wonder how long it will be before Tennessee becomes the “New Florida”. Personally I will have not problems with with 50 degree temperatures all the way till spring. The less I have to heat the house, the better off my wallet is.
It’s funny how I use to have some slight displeasure about my life being an island, living alone with cats. But over the last few months I have found quite a bit of solice in it. I still have my social outlets I visit daily, but as far as needing someone in my life to fill some kind of void… well thats not the way I see it anymore. The way I have screwed up my work, sleep and play schedule, it’s probably difficult for someone to try and be my other half anyway. But if the earth moves… then all that goes out the window and it’s a new route to take.
Beef is going to raise substantially this year… and why? Because we are using so much corn to make ethanol. Welll thats a crock of poop if you ask me. What a sad state of affairs when we are so hungry for oil that we forsake other more important aspects of life.
