Giving misses?

Sure. Family, food, shelter, health & wealth, the NFL Network.
But what about Misgivings? When do we set aside a day just for that?

Police state

Friday night on the west side of Tallahassee. Cool autumn temps. Respite from the work week.

When pigs fly.

All-Seeing-Eye in the sky. Copper chopper. RotoDeputy. I'm caught in the web of student and minority profiling. 

Essential rhetorical device: How long would these things last if flown over the nice part of town?

My inner civil libertarian is appalled, of course. A very close second, however, is the ire of my outer Joe Taxpayer. I do not wish to hear the plaints in the coming round of flat-to-slashed budgeting when this money-burning idiocy goes on.

Pardon me while I go take my Lipitor.

Don't Ask, Don't Tell, Pass The Remote, Please.

The U.S. Senate mismanaged to punt the debate. I'm aware of and abhor the great harm and injustice this policy and its predecessors bring about.


Personally and in my own experience of the American character -- current and past -- I think we've shown ourselves to prefer Don't Ask, Don't Tell in most everything. On its own, that's a bad thing. But there's already an implied third element to DADT: Don't Ask, Don't Tell, but if we do or you do we're really going to reveal how stupid we are.

With an alternative, explicit added clause, we'd have a winner.

The perfect addition would be Don't Ask, Don't Tell, Doesn't Matter.

However, Don't Ask, Don't Tell, Hand Over The Chips, works just as well.

I kind of like Don't Ask, Don't Tell, What's That Smell.

Baseball and politics

Blogs/baseball.jpgEvery baseball team is going to win (roughly) 60 games and lose 60 games. It's what the team does in the remaining 42 games that distinguishes a champion from a chump.
Blogs/ivotedsticker.gifEvery major-party candidate for public office is going to automatically get (roughly) 40 percent of the vote and fail to have a chance at another 40 percent of the vote. It's what the candidate does to win over the remaining 20 percent that is the difference between an office holder and a loser.
What I can't figure out is if it's the Republicans or the Democrats who have the designated hitter rule in place.
All in all, I prefer baseball.
