Pushing back the frontiers of ignorance..................
Last Friday morning I called for the drive by media to cover that Democrat Sleaze Ball John Edwards story.  They still haven't but Edwards outed himself in an attempt to kill the story Friday afternoon but is still lying and has not acknowledged paternity.   And it is now coming out that donations to his campaign were used to pay off his "honey" with the full knowledge of his campaign leaders.  Old "two Americas" Edwards and his handlers should all be in prison!
Senator Obama has me convinced. I have freed all my slaves, and will pay each one of them $1,000,000 in reparations. I will use the rest of my money to buy a tire gauge and inflate my tires at the local convenience store and to buy a tank of gas.  Why can't the rest of you acknowledge this wonderful savior and embrace the "second coming" like I have?

Lucky Larry's Driving Rules...............
Hang up and drive.
Four-wheel drive means you can probably get going when it's snowing. It does not allow you cause problems for people who don't have four wheel drive.
If you're someone who can't buy a clue and still has to drive in the left lane all the time because you're afraid to change lanes, stay home or ride the bus.
The next time you cut a corner, rather than turning into your own lane, realize that if you're in an accident, it will be your fault.  More importantly, if you hit someone and you're not injured in the accident, don't be surprised if they beat the crap out of you for being stupid.
If it's raining, or snowing, or foggy, or dark, turn your headlights on, and use the low beams.  High beams just reflect the fog, blind the other drivers, and prove to the world that you're a stupid jerk.

What to Say When You Talk to Yourself By Shad Helmstetter  
What's a Metaphor?........................
A place to raise sheep
He spoke with the kind of wisdom that can only come from experience, like a guy who goes blind because he looked at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes with a pinhole in it and now goes around the country speaking at high schools about the dangers of looking at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes with a pinhole in it.  
He was as tall as a six-foot, three-inch tree.  
The revelation that his marriage of 30 years had disintegrated because of his wife's infidelity came as a rude shock, like a surcharge at a formerly surcharge-free ATM machine.  
That's enough from your embedded reporter here in the heartland of Absurdistan where our childlike governor, Martin O'Malley is being considered for the position of Energy Tsar for Obama - the very man who lied to the entire state about stopping the increase in energy costs.  I think that Obama should make this post a committee of Martin O'Malley D-MD, Grey Davis D-CA and Paris Glendening D-MD - three losers that don't have a clue ..............

But, On The Other Hand.........
Become a possibilitarian. No matter how dark things seem to be or actually are, raise your sights and see possibilities. Always see them, for they're always there.
