There aren’t very many things that I sit around thinking that I need. I’m not hungry, homeless, disabled, isolated, etc. I’ve got a good job, great family and friends and bad hobbies which lead to bad habits. I’m not rich, but I know how to make some money when needed. I’m really lucky and I know it, love it and therefore, I have a large time in life. I didn’t think that I would make it to adulthood and I did not plan on being 40 or older. Now, I have a phenomenal daughter who is a responsible adult, a son that has a chance to become a productive citizen and a wife that is still here putting up with my crap (how’d that happen?). Since, I didn’t plan on 40, I have some concerns on making it to 90+ like a lot of my ancestors. I shouldn’t be allowed to have that many years of fun. There are only a few things that I truly need in life that I don’t have.
1–A tank. Not a water tank, an actual tank. With ammo for it. This would be great fun. No, I have not ever driven a tank or shot the guns, but it wouldn’t take me long to figure it out. I would also use it in times of national defense, if needed. Watch the movie “Kelly’s Hero’s”. I would have a bloody, beautiful tank–playing music as we go.
2–TIME–Who doesn’t need more of this? I can tell you who. Those dumb bastards in washington D.C.
3–I need somebody that can transfer an iTunes account. I have 549 songs in an existing iTunes account, but with the new phone, newer email address, conversion from a pc to a mac computer, it won’t let me download MY account (bought & paid for) to MY new phone and it pisses me off. The cat AT at&t told me that he had the same problem and it took him 6 hours on the phone with an apple genius (think about that term) to get his accounts merged. refer to #2– I don’t have the time, patience or desire to sit on a phone, in front of a computer trying to get what is already mine. If an at&t employee that sells iPhones has hell with this problem, why should I think that I could get something done. I should be able to type into MY account and then type in a dang phone # and download that crap to that phone. I already paid for it. I’m pretty sure that our government has something to do with iTunes. Why? It is shutdown and doesn’t work properly.
4–A government that functions. These crayon eating tards (your president and congress) that are sponging off of all of us need to look at history, not at polls. We need representation of people that have actually done it. By done it, I mean worked fields, had a time clock job, had a boss, understood a dollar–not inherited it, lied for it or cheated for it. They need to understand what it means to be a representative. Go to WORK in Washington D.C., for NO pay, then come back to their jobs after ONE term. Read the last paragraph of the Gettysburg Address by Abraham Lincoln (do they still teach this in school?).
“But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
Highlights include: Under GOD and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from Earth.
WE need people in leadership positions that understand what a DOLLAR actually is and how to MAKE a dollar, not print it or spend it. We need a government that doesn’t use the terms Debt Ceiling, trillions, campaign funds, lobbyists or RE-ELECTION. They NEED to understand ONE TERM, NO PAY, SERVICE, JOB. If they do a good job of the people, by the people, and for the people, they will by heroes, rich, etc. If not, they can come stab goat turds at my place with chop sticks.
People have more money than ever, but our governments (city, some states and national) are broke. Why? When people EARN their money, they spend it as they see fit (see high $ goat sales). When they don’t earn it themselves, they piss it away. Money is only valuable when you understand the value of the labor, time and commitment that it took to earn said money.
I need our government to be OF the people, BY the people and truly FOR the people.
5–I need the word “obama” to be the sound that all toilets make when being flushed. He & his fellow politicians have never had a real job. He’s played dirty pool to get his banners and now they are pissing away the money that others earned. Our nation will survive this. Just look at charities, fundraisers, church collections, etc. We, as a nation, have money. We get things done to take care of those that we want to help. We just don’t give two squirts of duck shit for people that are incompetent, crooked or un-trustworthy. Hopefully, they will spend their way out of office, then actual people, with common sense, will move in take over and get things done.
6–I need an un-biased media. I need Gary England to give me the news, not the weather. Somebody that we trusted for the past 40 years. I need somebody like my Mom to give me the news. She is INCAPABLE of lying or sensationalizing anything. Straight forward and ALWAYS with the thought that GOD is watching and listening. I can do the straight forward part, but I know that GOD is good at forgiveness, (I listened to that part in MASS.) so I still have a chance at talking my way out of that last stupid stunt, whichever one it was. If I get hit by lightning, you people will know why.
7–I need a smaller government. I need a president that actually understands the value of a strong military. I need a president that will negotiate with fellow Americans, not the syrians or other skid mark regimes.
No matter how this deal ends up, the United States and the Roman Empire will go down as the greatest civilzations ever on Earth. “Et Tu, Brute?” And these “elected” officials will be noted–nameless, I might add, to the reason of the fall. oBAMa isn’t the first or the worst, just a part of the problem. They weren’t true citizens.
8–I need a better goat in Duke’s pen. Whoever, is picking his goats needs to do a better job. Wait, how old is he? 12. Oh heck, he’ll be alright, we haven’t hit the debt ceiling yet. Give it a while or so and I will be able to buy his goats with gov’t money because his dad is mentally disabled and then they will send him a funds card that as long as the online sale is advertised as a community development event it can be spent on show “projects” for the needy as they are a “food” item. And whatever is leftover on the card can be spent at Charlie’s because their products are made from barley and other subsidized programs. RUSM?!
