It's time for me to complain again. Or not. I really, really, really don't want to. But our GREAT nation keeps heading nowhere except toward socialist financial ruin. To ignore that would irresponsible. All our damn president wants to do is grow the government to preposterous proportions. In order to help everyone, he's launched an attack on those who make more money: they should be responsible for paying for most of America -- Raise Their Taxes. Where does this idea even come from??!!
"Hello. May I help you?"
"We're the government. According to our records, you make more money than your neighbors."
"Yes, I've been fortunate and I've been able to be successful."
"Since you make more, we're forcing you to give more of what you earned back to us so we can use it to help others."
It's not fair, it's blatantly wrong, and most importantly, it's going to do so much damage to the economy. And then you've got fools who say it's not really raising taxes. Going from 35% to 39.6%, "that's just letting tax breaks expire and it's not really raising them." What?!?! 35 to almost 40 IS going UP.
WAKE UP!!!!!!!! This idiotic dooshbag and his stooge Congress are doing so much harm. We're so screwed.
But I've got to keep getting my exercise... can't be an important part of the revolution if you don't have the healthy energy to do so.
|Friday Afternoon Run: 25 minutes 39 sec||+11 seconds|
Days Since My Last Run: 2
3:25 pm - 68° - kinda sunny
For this run I was ill-prepared but I got it done... somehow. I just did not have the energy that I would have liked to've had. On top of that, I think I was a little more tired than I should've been for such a run. It just wasn't as easy as other similar runs. Less than two minutes in (!!!) I was already wanting to quit, quit, quit, quit, quit. That thought so early was easy to push away but it returned soon enough. I really don't know how I pushed on to over 25 minutes. I got it accomplished though. By the end, all I wanted to do was sit and sleep and wake up whenever and then stagger back home. My ass was draggin', my feet were draggin', I don't want to be sitting here now typing this, I just want to be dead... well, uhh, maybe just laying down in the most supreme state of vegging out.
In order to have 10 runs and 4 hours for the month, am I really gonna do this tomorrow??? Ay caramba. I wish I could hire someone to exercise for me. I suppose that wouldn't really do much for my physical health, though, eh?
Good news is I've had my Best Month Ever. I just wish I had the energy to be more excited about it.
