Will our government do anything right? Seemingly -- no. Listening to the White House briefing with Press Secretary (Somebody Gibbs,) I got that he wants the American people to NOT focus on 99% of the "stimulus" bill but take pleasure in the fact that like 1% will be helping to stimulate the economy. Without getting too much into it, this is helps demonstrate the divide in America. Dems want to help people BUT they also want to bloat the government and spend like crazy on anything they can. Here we are with Republicans being the ones who want to solely focus on the American worker without all the other crap.
(Or something like that. I'm generally always right but like Obama giving waivers to get around the promises he made about not having lobbyists in his administration, I'm giving myself a waiver to not be totally accurate here.)
Anyway, I wasn't paying close attention but over and over that's what I may have heard, that the American people (and the Media) shouldn't focus on the questionable things that the taxpayer dollars are going to be spent on. Only focus on we think will stimulate the economy. Stop scrutinizing everything else.
IT'S OUR MONEY. Are you kidding us? Don't dwell on the useless crap that some of the Congress has put in there, just focus on what'll help the people immediately?? But what about all that useless crap?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Ignore it? Stimulus bill my ass. "Government Bloating Bill -- 2009."
Whatever. Dooshbags. Any president who chooses a Tax Cheat to run a government agency and the government who seats that Tax Cheat is just asking to ALWAYS be in suspicion of EVERYTHING they EVER do.
That is all.
I went running.
|Monday Afternoon Run: 24 minutes 37 sec||+1 min 27 sec|
12:40 pm - 67° - a little sunny
Ay caramba. I'm wiped out. Nearly 70° (F) for the end of January? Disgusting. Just wrong. And it didn't help my run. By the time I got halfway through I wishing for death, as in -- drop dead, heart stop, run over. I'm not sure why left wing liberal [insert bad name here]'s complain so much about enhanced interrogation techniques for terrorists . . . they should be protesting to stop me from running because THAT is torture.
I don't know why but my shoulders hurt. I'm not sore anywhere else but there. Hips hurt during my run, a little bit, but that subsided. No bad knee pain. All seems pretty good... but my shoulders?
Twas so foggy this morning and I wanted to run down the foggy trail but it lifted quickly. Oh well. If it wasn't so warm this afternoon, twouldn't a-been so bad. Now all I really want is a coffin, thanks.
But I'm glad I got this run in. One more run and I can eclipse December and that's my goal. Unfortunately I won't get over 3 hours. Dang it.

I've known about this band but am not sure if I've ever heard a single note of their music before pressing play on Narrow Stairs. What's here is uneven in sound. Slow and dirge-like here, fast and cool there, and then Beatles/Oasis-ish in another place. I dunno, I don't want every song to sound the same but what's up with that? It's like three different bands.
Overall this is pretty good but I'd've liked it to be more upbeat. No Sunlight and Long Division get there but not a lot else.
I might listen again and might check out other albums of theirs. We'll see.
