#10.  I vote Democrat because I love the fact that I can now marry whatever I want. I've decided to marry my German Shepherd.

#9.  I vote Democrat because I believe oil companies' profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon at 15% isn't.

#8.  I vote Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

#7.  I vote Democrat because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

#6.  I vote Democrat because I'm way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves.  I am also thankful that we have a 911 service that gets police to your home in order to identify your body after a home invasion.

#5.  I vote Democrat because I'm not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive and comfy.

#4.  I vote Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits, and we should take away Social Security from those who paid into it.

#3. I vote Democrat because I believe that businesses should not be allowed to make profits for themselves.  They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrat Party sees fit.

#2.  I vote Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

… And, the #1 reason I vote Democrat is because I think it's better to pay $billions$ for oil to people who hate us, but not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle, gopher, or fish here in America.  We don't care about the beetles, gophers, or fish in those other countries.

How Paul McCartney Really Died

Akward Moment

I went to the library yesterday. I’m wearing a Beatles’ “Rubber Soul” tee-shirt. This guy comes walking toward me wearing a  John Lennon tee-shirt. Lennon with the long hair and beard. Do I say something to him like, “nice shirt.” Or say, “his post Beatle career sucked.” Maybe nod to him to acknowledged his shirt.
Nope, I did none of the above. I just kept walking.

Food Discount Cards

Pathmark and Waldbaums did away with their discount cards. Now you get savings without the card.
I have mixed feelings about this. Good thing is I don’t have to carry around the cards anymore. Bad thing is everybody will get the discount now. I used to feel special when I had the card. If the person in front of me didn’t have the card, they would par full price. I’d be thinking “sucker.” While they were bagging they stuff and I was paying, the cashier would say, “do you have your card.” Give her my card, she would swipe it and say, you saved $11.50.” I’d be thinking, that idiot paid full price and I saved money. Now that satisfaction is gone. We’re all equal.

Vintage Stereo Equipment

I just joined a Vintage Stereo Equipment group on Facebook and I went searching online to see if I could find my first real setup. Found them all except the turntable, and that’s because I don’t remember what kind I had.
Pioneer 424 receiver. A big 12 watts per channel. This baby really pumped out the power.
Acosti Phase Monitor Speakers Phase 1. For the money, these speakers were excellent. They were made by a small company in Vermont. I bought all this stuff from Crazy Eddie. I just found out that they were the main distributors of these speakers. 6 inch woofer and 1 inch dome tweeter. I think they might have been one of the first to have the dome tweeter.
Akai CS-702D tape deck. To tape with Dolby or without? That is the question.

Crying Soccer Fans

I’ve been watching the World Cup. Never seen so many crying players and fans in my life. Look, half the teams that play lose. If your team loses, there’s no need to turn on the waterworks.  I bet most of these crying fans are the one that shove it in your face when their team wins. You lost, deal with it. It’s not the end of the world. Mickey Mantle don’t pay your rent.
