Things That Make You Go....Ewwww

It's been hectic at work recently. Pretty much getting my ass slammed (can I say not all judges were in line for brains, here? Heck yes. It's my blog.) So some things that have made me go "ewwww" either in a train wreck kinda way or in a "Oh, shit, I can't believe somebody had the balls to say that" kind of way.

Draw your own conclusions:

1. "I think everyone who reads this blog can join me in expressing sadness over the course events that may rob the nation of the moral leadership and visionary intelligence of a leader of the caliber of Tom Delay. Without the Tominator at the helm of the Republican Party, who will use the Department of Homeland Security to hunt down Texas Democrats? Or Bill Frist? Without the moral leadership and visionary intelligence of a leader of the caliber of Dr./Mr./Leader Frist, who will do all the necessary diagnoses of brain-dead women by videophone... and the people who’ve contracted AIDS from kissing… to say nothing of all the cats needing killing? And what if we lose Rush Limbaugh? Who will prowl the nation’s parking lots looking for fix, while at the same time terming Jerry Garcia to be “nothing more than a dead doper?” Sad, sad, sad."

2. "But I do know that it's true that if you wanted to reduce crime, you could -- if that were your sole purpose, you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down. That would be an impossible, ridiculous, and morally reprehensible thing to do, but your crime rate would go down. So these far-out, these far-reaching, extensive extrapolations are, I think, tricky."
--------Bill Bennett, GOP'er and Reagan's Former Secretary of Education

3. The movie "Getting Off." Three female friends take HIV tests and reflect on their lives up to that point. The scene that got me--- the most fucked up girl of the three finds out that in her really bad drinking days, her "friend" (one of the 3 women) allowed her to be gang raped in a bathroom at a party by her brother's frat friends and then told the brother/boyfriend of the fucked up girl about it years later and made it sound like the rape victim wanted it. The guy broke up with her and sent her into a downward spiral which resulted in the HIV test. The "friend's" excuse- "You always get what you want and guys like you better than me."

4. Roberts confirmed as Chief Justice.

5. Anna Nicole Smith gets cert..


In sum, it's been a long, long summer. We all need another vacation. I'm looking at Amsterdam. At least the red light district there is confined to one area. There, I can pay to see fucked up people instead of just turning on my TV.

It makes it more special.....

Good choice with Amsterdam. If there was ever a place that would be good for forgetting your cares that is it. Never been, but it is on the list. Jake Da Wonderdog

Nothing like window shopping and people watching in Amsterdam. Great choice.
