Halloween is about to get a lot better.

 Halloween has always been an awful holiday for me. Eight years ago today, I lost my best friend to a drug overdose. Not only was he like a brother, but he was also Princess's God Father. As a proud Catholic Dago, it was a role that he embraced with vigor. To this day, the things he missed out on with his God Daughter makes me wish I could have done more to help him. I question  myself everyday on how I could have handled his demons differently.

 Seventy Five years ago today, a woman was born that would turn out to be the most influential person in my life. She gave me my morals, and my passion. Because of her, I learned about understanding and compassion. I learned how to cook and play piano. But the best thing she ever did, was give me life. My only regret is that she wasn't around long enough to meet her Granddaughter. Love you Ma.

 But this year, this day, is new. Somehow, this is the first time in eight years that the Princess will be with me on Halloween. I spent the last few nights enjoying things that I have not enjoyed in a long time.

 The amazing thing about children is that in the beginning, you give them life. You help bring them into this world. But as time goes on, they give you life. They teach you how to live again. They remind you of what was once fun and important. This morning was no different.

 The Princess is at school right now enjoying a Halloween party. I'm sitting here watching the clouds part, and the Sun starting to shine. I find myself looking very much forward to tonight. The first time I've been trick or treating in over 20 years. And for that Honey, I thank you.....................................

The Bitch is gone.....

 Sandy has left and in her wake is devastation. More than 40 deaths, including two young boys who died in New York when a tree fell into there living room. Millions without power. A horrific event that most of the United States did not have to endure.


 This is now a good time for us as Americans to help. Political beliefs and parties aside, American citizens need our help. Below are links to different charitable organizations and relief funds. If at all possible, I'm sure the smallest of donations would mean everything. Let's keep these people in our prayers.

Johnny O'Bloggin's Musical Monday......

Since Dottie mentioned Sepultura last week, I figured I would continue the theme another week. This is Roots, Bloody Roots. The song here is being performed at the 2012 Wacken Festival. Good times !!!!!

Johnny O'Bloggin's Musical Monday........

The band is Soulfly. The singer/guitar player is Max Cavalera. He is the founding member of Sepultura, but left that band in the late 90's after a dispute. He formed Soulfly after his departure from Sepultura. He uses different artists for all studio releases to avoid a "Stale" sound. Interesting story actually. I'm sure it's on wikipedia. Anyway, this song is entitled "Moses". Hope you enjoy.

Early voting starts today. (BUT WAIT!)

 Yes, I am asking you not to vote just yet. I understand that some people will be out of town and would prefer to vote early, compared to an absentee ballot. But the problem is that we as a country are under siege. Our Democracy is under siege. We are under siege from an evil known as the CPD

 The CPD (Commission on Presidential Debates) has held the diplomatic process hostage since 1987. The problem is that the CPD was started by the Democratic and Republican parties. The CPD has moderated every Presidential debate since 1988. So how did things work before that?
 The Presidential debates of 1976, 1980, and 1984 were moderated by The League of Women Voters. In October of '88 the League's trustees voted unanimously to pull out of the debates. They released the following statement.

The League of Women Voters is withdrawing sponsorship of the presidential debates...because the demands of the two campaign organizations would perpetrate a fraud on the American voter. It has become clear to us that the candidates' organizations aim to add debates to their list of campaign-trail charades devoid of substance, spontaneity and answers to tough questions. The League has no intention of becoming an accessory to the hoodwinking of the American public.

 That is correct. A fraud upon the American voter. Were you aware that there is an agreement made between BOTH PARTIES as to how the debates will go. It is called the Memorandum of Understanding, or MOU for short. Here;s the link for this years agreement.

 The two major political parties in this country are cowardice, and hi jacking true Democracy. Here is another nice note.
 Frank Fahrenkopf, is a former head of the Republican National Committee, and one of the Chairman of the CPD. At a 1987 press conference announcing the commission's creation, Fahrenkopf said that the commission was not likely to include third-party candidates in debates, and Paul G. Kirk, Democratic national chairman, said he personally believed they should be excluded from the debates.
 My personal opinion, is that these words and actions prove one thing. The two major parties ARE NOT always interested in nominating the best candidate. But the most winnable one. Of course by winnable, I mean a candidate that will follow their respective party's platform.

 From Wikipedia:

During the 2000 election, the CPD stipulated that candidates would only be invited to debate if they had a 15% support level across five national polls. Ralph Nader, a presidential candidate who was not allowed to debate because of this rule, believed that the regulation was created to stifle the views of third party candidates by keeping them off the televised debates. Nader brought a lawsuit against them in a federal court, on the basis that corporate contributions violate the Federal Election Campaign Act. After a series of FEC actions and lower court decisions, the D.C. Circuit Court ultimately ruled in 2005 that because Congress vested discretionary power in the FEC (meaning that an FEC action would have to rise to the level of arbitrary and capricious to be challenged), the court would not overrule the FEC's determinations that "found that the third-party challengers had failed to provide 'evidence that the CPD is controlled by the DNC or the RNC,'" and that the CPD provided sufficient rationale for barring third party candidates from entering the debates as audience members out of fear they might have disrupted the live debates in protest over having been excluded as debate particpants.[28]
On September 21, 2012, Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson filed an anti-trust lawsuit against CPD, the RNC and the DNC in D.C. Circuit Court citing the Sherman Act and claiming "restraint of trade" for denying competition to, for example, potentially receive the $400,000 annual presidential salary. Although the complaint recounts the history of CPD formation, it omits any mention of either the Nader/Hagelin 2000 lawsuit or the FEC. The Johnson complaint asks "for injunctive relief by temporary restraining order ... by enjoining defendants ... from conducting presidential debates unless all constitutionally-eligible candidates are included whose names will appear on the ballots in states whose cumulative total of electoral college votes is 270 or more."[29]

 If a person wants to run for President, but does not follow the two major party platforms, they have no chance of winning the highest elected office. It's basically the punishment, for not selling out your values.
 But we as the American public are missing out. Two politicians that will be debating TOMORROW are Gary Johnson, and Jill Stein. There are two others that will be part of this debate, their names are Rocky Anderson and Virgil Goode. I don't know too much about Anderson and Goode yet, but I truly believe that Mr. Johnson or Mrs. Stein are better capable of running this country than the two candidate you'll watch on T.V. tonight. It's to bad you won't see Stein or Johnson with them. But the Democratic and Republican National Committee's has done their best to make sure that won't happen.

It's time to take our Democracy back.................................................................
Watch a real debate tomorrow night at 10/23 8:00 CDT at this link.

Left wing and Right wing lunacy in the Land of Lincoln

We have it all in Illinois. We have Governors in Prison and Congressman in clinics. We are the home of Ronald Reagan, numerous politicians trying to buy and sell a Senate seat. We are also home to the first "Billion dollar" President. This upcoming election cycle will offer us a fabulous array of unqualified candidates and incumbents.

First up is one incumbent US Representative named Jesse Jackson Jr. This guy is all sorts of special. He represents the 2nd Congressional District, or at least he DID, until early June. Surrounded by controversy since his "Illness", this man has not been performing his duties as a Congressman since June. He hasn't even been campaigning, but yet conventional wisdom says he will win reelection. Even though come November, he'll be in MN at the Mayo Clinic. A lot of people have been defending him, including his wife Sandi, who is a Chicago Alderman, despite spending most of her time in DC. He was supposedly under medical care when he was spotted at a DC night club. Not once, but twice.

Not only has he been out of the public eye, but he hasn't even taken his seat in Congress. He's actually asking voters to be patient in regards to his return, and even asks for their prayers and blessings.

Last, but certainly not least is Joe Walsh. He is the incumbent Congressman from the eighth District. Despicable doesn't even begin to describe this guy. His stance on abortion for instance is deplorable.

According to Representative Walsh's recent debate on WTTW Chicago, the one exception to abortion that he approves of, is if the child and Mother's life is threatened. At least we got that clarified.
"Maam, Your child will be born with severe cerebral palsy and it's heart will form outside the body. The child will live no more than one year, but your health will be fine. Good luck".
Seriously, that's a conversation that can occur under this Asshole's ideals? Fuck off.
 But, just in case that isn't deplorable enough, how about this?

This Asshole has accused Tammy Duckworth of "Using" her military career as a political upstart.
Tammy Duckworth joined the military in 1992 and is STILL a member of the Illinois National Guard. She has received the Purple Heart and the Army Commendation Medal, among others.
How exactly does she use her military service to garner votes Joe? Because she limps onto stage?

In the end, these two incumbents are proof, that there should be some sort of testing system involved in someone's right to vote. Because both of these politicians are clearly unfit to represent the people. In one way or another.............................................................................

Johnny O'Bloggin's Funny Ass Friday...........

A man had a party where all the rich people attend.
And the he had a pool with alligators. So he announced that anyone who will swim across this pool and come out alive will be granted three wishes.
But no one wanted to go for the challenge. All of a sudden, there was a big splash and a man was swimming like a hell and came out alive.
So the host asked, "What are your three wishes?"
The man replied, "Give me the shotgun and bulllets and show me the idiot that pushed me in ...."

The Liberal's idea of tolerance and free thinking.

 Well I've been banned yet again. Apparently, the free flow of ideas on a Liberal blog only works, if you agree with them, don't criticize Obama, or criticize the shit out of Romney.
 My first banning was by Muddy over at Mudrake. Although I will admit, I wasn't banned from there due to ideas. He got mad because I deleted a comment. I'll be honest with you, I kind of miss him and our back and forths. Even if you don't like him, I did. His debate with CS on religion was awesome. Both of them debating back and forth in a friendly manner actually got  me to research things. Can you believe that? Me, an agnostic researching facts about God and the bible.
 Because of Muddy, I met two good guys. Dottie and EOK. I've communicated with both via e-mail, and actually talk to one on the phone and text messaging quite a bit.
 I take full responsibility for what happened between Muddy and I. Things would always get heated, and quite often, I would step over the line. Now that I think about it I think I'll try getting a hold of him when I'm done here.
 But this latest incident is pathetic. I will not mention names, and will remove names when I see fit. I don't want anyone to visit this close minded Jack Wagon's blog. So, a quick recap.

 My first comment on this man's blog was on 10/16...................................................
Hello ##- Almost forgot about our little diatribe. Hope ##'s absence is a simple hiatus, and not permanent. Felt like I had to comment here for obvious reasons. You didn't mention too much in the post, So I'll go back to our original diatribe, if you don't mind.

"Willard's website says (and I have a video of the werds coming out of his lying mouth)He specifies a 20% cut in income tax rates, a 40% cut in the corporate tax rate, repeal of the estate tax and alternative minimum tax and elimination of taxes on interest, dividends and capital gains for households with incomes below $200,000.( The Independent Non Partisan Tax Policy Center AND the Wall Street Journal BOTH say that will reduce revenues by $4.8T. Wednesday night, however, he said he was "Not in favor of a $5T tax cut"(on more than one occasion) and he would keep marginal rates at their current levels while raising Defense spending by $2T MORE than already budgeted. Which is it? Either he's lying on his website (and on camera multiple times) ... or he lied in front of America Wednesday night(on camera, multiple times)."
1- The center estimated that altogether, the lost revenues would total $480 billion by 2015. The Obama campaign adds up the cost over a decade and winds up with $4.8 trillion, which it then rounds up to $5 trillion.
The conclusion is accurate but misleading. Yes, the cuts would total that amount, but as Obama himself noted as he continued speaking, Romney hopes to offset the lost revenues by closing loopholes and deductions. The reductions in tax breaks are as much a part of Romney’s plan as the tax cuts.
2- If memory serves, Romney said he would work with Congress on eliminating loopholes. That's where his whole bi-partisanship musing came into play.
3- I believe the 2T defense shit and the tax cuts were separate issues. Obama was wise to throw that one at him, but when you got someone down, you step on there throat, you don't give 'em smelling salts.

Look ##, I love argumentative banter, as long as it's friendly. I also like meeting new bloggers such as yourself. But before we continue this thread, or you post something about me needing to be informed (which is appreciated), you need to know one thing. I am no longer voting for Romney. 

But I do stand behind my original comments. Romney won that debate. He won it because Obama let him. Obama's biggest problem is that (Spoiler) he is not good at debating. He just isn't. If Romney stood there and told all these outright lies, what does it say about our President? WHO LET HIM. Biden was more Presidential than Obama.

I have tonight's debate DVR'd. Probably won't get to it until tomorrow. But I'll stop back, maybe frequently. LOLOLOLOLOL, aren't you a lucky clown.

BTW- One question. You said in that thread, "Changing your point of view because of THE FACTS is an admirable quality, but changing your POV because of PRESENT COMPANY is despicable!"
Out of curiosity, what do you think about Obama's flip-flop on gay marriage?
Talk to ya soon.............................

This comment was left on a post where the blogger personally referenced me. It went back to a debate on another blog between him and myself. Here's his reply posted on 10/17.......................................

J.O.B., Thanks for dropping by and for your comment. You're welcome over here ANY time .... regardless of how you vote!
I was under the impression our disagreement was about whether or not Romney lied (is still lying) about his tax plan .... not who won that debate. Unquestionably, Romney won what debating took place that night and your points on that debate are well taken. My President's "throat stepping" adviser was recently elected Mayor of Chicago and that position is as yet still open.
however .....
I am no Federal Income Tax expert, but folks at The Independent Non Partisan Tax Policy Center are. THEY say that if you cut ALL the loopholes and ALL the deductions it STILL doesn't add up to $5T over ten years. Furthermore, if Mitt cuts the Home Mortgage deduction that will, in essence BE a tax HIKE on everyone who takes that deduction. THEY say (The Independent Non Partisan Tax Policy Center) you cannot cut taxes by 20% across the board and still BE revenue neutral. Bi-Partisan agreement or no. Not even with magical underwear on unicorns. Just doesn't make sense, even if Ryan and Romney "had TIME" to explain it to us, it doesn't add up.
You are correct about that extra $2T as well. After I read the Romney/Ryan tax plan and heard Willard speak of the $2T increase in Defense spending I mentally connected the two for no apparent reason. BUT ....If you CANNOT achieve a revenue neutral 20% tax cut across the board without raising SOMEBODY'S taxes .... where's that money coming from? From the, again, magically created 12M jobs? Another contribution by those patriotic 'Murkans the Koch brothers? Probably not .....
Like you I dvr'd last night's debate and haven't had the chance to view it yet.I HOPE Obama CHANGEd his tactics. I'm a Yankee fan (what?) and it appears their elimination will come much sooner than November 6th. I don't have magical underwear to help them in the post season but I do have a 'special' cap I wear. Which, by the way, after last night's whuppin' the Tigers put on my Yankees seems to be magic "neutral", as well.
As for Obama's 180 on gay marriage fer shure it was a political ploy to woo the "Bleeding Heart" Liberals back into the fold, and though it has fuck all to do with me or Barry(I don't think PBO's gay, either), it was the right thing to do, human rights wise, though it WILL cost him votes next month.
Again, thanks for stopping by and commenting. If you still believe Romney's tax plan is doable c'mon back .... I've got an old abacus out in the shed ... we'll sit out back, watch my birds, and have a beer. I'm a Mathamagician with that thing! Maybe Willard and lil' Eddy could use one ....

Here's another back and forth on a separate post, same blog and same time frame.

##- Quite useful and awesome. Might add it to a blog post of mine. With your permission of course.

Check out this document, then tell me these two aren't cowardice pussies.

This comment was left on a post that included quite a useful link. Here is his reply.

J.O.B., GOO-uh-OOD-NESS! After the first reading of that document I thought perhaps they had forgotten to add a rule or two .... but on second reading? Nope! they gottum all! That document alone created several jobs .... for LAWYERS! heh
As for content ... take what you need. As the title of this blog implies, NONE of my content is original. It comes from the nowhere ... and it goes to the no place. So take whatcha need ....

btw .... visited your page and that's a very pretty lil' girl ya' got there! Her Momma must be a beauty queen .... and it's a good thing too ... what with all the ugly YOU thowed into the mix! heh heh heh
Johnny O'Bloggin, huh? J.O.B.. Not at all what I assumed. I see those very initials (J.O.B.) pert near every day ... but it's because I use

After this exchange, I thought we were on a pretty friendly basis. He even complimented the Princess, and joked about my looks. Hey, I'll give him that. I ain't pretty, but I do think I have beautiful eyes. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
This is a comment I left on 10/18. The post was in regards to the recent debate when Romney/Obama were talking about women in the work place, and The Lily Ledbetter Act.

So ##, Obama's claim to fame is Lily Ledbetter? Let's take a look at that.
1st- The Ledbetter Act passed the Senate on 01-22-09. Obama signed it into law on 01-29-09. That's a whole 9 days after his inauguration. He supposedly championed it. Must have been during his Presidential run. I would also like to add, what this bill does. The Act amends the Civil Rights Act of 1964 stating that the 180-day statute of limitations for filing an equal-pay lawsuit regarding pay discrimination resets with each new paycheck affected by that discriminatory action.

This is the champion of women's rights? Good times.

BTW- I like to think my Princess looks like me. Considering the EX is a disgustingly ugly woman. Inside and out.
Good to see you admit that our President is despicable.
I never got into rolling papers. I have always been a bowl kind of guy.

Now here is his reply posted today. 

You missed it, ####er, because it didn't happen. J.O.B. here is using a tactic called "baiting" in which he blathers passive aggressive nonsense to evoke a reaction .... and further debate. This guy is what Squatty referred to as "the weight" and what the rest of us call a .... fuckin' .... TROLL! So .... unlike Squat I won't try to reason with this shit stirring idiot, I'll just ... fuckin' .... BLOCK his monkey ass! This will be Johnny O'Bloggin's last retort because now he's Johhny O' ....fuckin' .... BLOCKED! Yes ... he'll post a comment as ANONYMOUS .... I'll switch to comment moderation .... you and the three or four LEGITIMATE commenters here will be annoyed ... we'll dance this dance until he finds someone else to intimidate and life for us will then return to normal. BUT .... make no mistake .... this is the last you'll see of J.O.B. over here. Oh, sure .... if it gets real bad ... I'll go over and take a giant SHIT on his page two or three times a day (fire for effect!) and disrupt his little cesspool corner of the interwebs ... you remember BBC? Should be about as interesting.
J.O.B. .... sorry, dude .... I tried to give you a chance, but "We don't LIKE yer kind 'round these parts .... sooooo .... Buh-Bye and good riddance.
And I disagree with you about yer little Princess. She really is a cute lil' girl and looks NOTHING like you. I suspect that if yer EX is as FUGLY as you say she is ... she can't be any FUGLIER than ... fuckin' ... YOU ... and perhaps it's like adding two negative numbers together. BTW .... what does that Ugly Ex-wife of yours think about her daughter headlining yer .... fuckin' .... Titty Blog? Yer showin' Reeeeeeeeal Class with that, Son! In closing I'd like to say .... MERGE PETER CHEESE! "Or I shall taunt you a second time-uh..."

######, see how that's done? No pain, no strain, no weight, no .... fuckin' .... J.O.B.

 There it is. Liberal idealism at it's finest. I have always taken pride in my manners. At least while on other blogs. If anyone disagree's, please let me know.  But we are not on someone else's blog now, are we?
 To my latest censor, GO FUCK YOURSELF. You are obviously a mindless, non thinking piece of shit. You are so blinded by your hate for Republicans and Conservatives, that you don't even see that you are practicing the same tactics that you as a "Liberal" preach against. The GOP intimidates? Really? What am I to gather by your threats of coming to my blog and shitting all over it.? That your the piece loving, tree hugger type? 
 I never went to your blog and acted rudely to you, or your commenters. And your last reply is what I get. You are a small minded conformist. I will now explain to you why that is.

 Lily Ledbetter is a shit law.  It does nothing for women's rights other than just opening a possible door. The woman who was discriminated against has to do her own investigating, she has to hire an attorney, and she has to file suit. Are you fucking kidding me? That's your answer to a woman's right in the workplace? Or do you just like it because our incumbent Fucktard "Championed" it. How about a better idea. Like audits of companies through payroll tax forms and other avenues, by the Department of Labor? Why should a woman who's already been discriminated against, be forced to incur additional costs to prove her discrimination? Oh, I remember now, Obama "Championed" it, and Romney's against it. So YOU must be the righteous one.
 AND HOW DARE YOU, talk to me about class, and how to raise a child. You don't know me, my child, or what I've went through just to be a part of my child's life. So maybe you should stay away from that one you piece of shit.
 But hey, thanks for not calling HER ugly. You are definitely all heart, all class, and all man.
 Oh, and you can comment over here anytime. Your input is always welcome. That's my motto, come one come all. Open doors to everyone. Even an ASSHOLE such as yourself. Good day sir.

     Now I have an old acquaintance to contact.


I realize that there may be some confusion over the Asshole's last comment. I will add more to clarify

JOB, dude. I must admit that I usually skip over your comments for various reasons. I have viewed your website but likewise skip over that as well. But if you'd like more than skipping, you need to stop printing the "facts" as you choose to hear them. If you want to lay down the facts about Ledbetter, do it. Say that GW Bushkin and his cronies killed the same bill and say that John McCain campaigned against it and Obama promised to make it a priority if he was elected.

Say that Obama and his new Democratic majority gathered enough Republican Senators to support the Bill and prevent other Repub assholes from fill-a-fucking-busting the bill. He made a promise and kept it.

And I must have missed where B### admitted the Prez is despicable.

This comment was left my another nameless commenter. I replied but it was erased. It was actually well thought out and I agreed with a lot of his points. Oh well, his loss. But you will notice the commenters last sentence. Well, this part of my comment "Good to see you admit that our President is despicable.  

This was an attempt at tongue and cheek humor. I know the Blogger never called Obama despicable. The funny thing is that I believe this is what set him "OFF". The funnier part is that in a round about sort of way. He did call The President despicable. Let's start. This is from a thread on a different blog.
"Changing your point of view because of THE FACTS is an admirable quality, but changing your POV because of PRESENT COMPANY is despicable!"

So I posed this simple question.
BTW- One question. You said in that thread, "Changing your point of view because of THE FACTS is an admirable quality, but changing your POV because of PRESENT COMPANY is despicable!"
Out of curiosity, what do you think about Obama's flip-flop on gay marriage?

Here is his reply.
As for Obama's 180 on gay marriage fer shure it was a political ploy to woo the "Bleeding Heart" Liberals back into the fold, and though it has fuck all to do with me or Barry(I don't think PBO's gay, either), it was the right thing to do,

So there you have it. If you are Republican and you change your point of view due to present company, or to garner votes, you are despicable. But if a Democrat does the same thing, it's the right thing to do.

Maybe some day, I'll figure that one out.

What is Douchebaggery?

 I got an e-mail from a visitor politely asking me to define Douchebaggery. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
Well friend, here is the best example I can find.................................................................................

Douchebaggery is two millionaires fighting over how to best serve the Middle Class.....

Philadelphia Cheese Dick................

 Football is a funny game. The Philadelphia Eagles fired their Defensive Coordinator, Juan Castillo, yesterday. Here's what's funny. Juan Castillo's entire career in Philly started in 1996. He was hired as an Offensive Assistant. He also spent time as Tight Ends coach. He was promoted to Offensive Line Coach in 1998. He served in that position under Andy Reid for thirteen seasons.
 Last year, Reid promoted Castillo to DEFENSIVE coordinator. Until that time, Castillo had not coached the Defensive side of the ball for over twenty years, back when he was in Division 2. There is a pattern here, with the longest tenured coach in the NFL.
 In 2001, Reid was promoted to Executive Vice President of football operations. That means he is in charge of hiring and firing. Which also means, he was the one who fired Castillo. Here is the problem, and this is why a Coach should be nothing but a Coach. The Executive Vice President of football operations is in charge of one thing. Day to day operations of your teams success.
 With all this said, Reid should have fired?.........................HIMSELF
The luster is gone, and has been gone for years. As a White Sox fan, I was sad to see Ozzie Guillen fired last year. After all, he brought a Championship to this town after one season. But, you can't rest on that. Reid took the Eagles to Four straight NFC Championship games, finally going to the Super Bowl in '04. And, LOST. Since '04, he's gone to only one other Championship game. So he fires a guy who should have never been given the job he got. I'm not even an Eagle fan (Da Bears!) and even I'm irate. I can't imagine how Eagles fans feel. But this was just an opinion piece written by someone who loves NFL football. But there is one very glaring fact. The hapless Offense (Reid's baby) is the one of the worse. Second only to Jacksonville. I guess the good news is that Reid should be gone at the end of the year.

Have a Happy and Humorous Hump Day.........

Sharp curves ahead !

Skinny girls aren't as fun.

The possibilities of President Obama's reelection.....

 Bad news may be coming for the Romney supporters. No matter what the record is, or how it's spun, an Obama 2nd term is a very good possibility. If you don't believe me, and you want proof, you need look no further than his hometown of Chicago. I offer you one Jesse Jackson Jr.

He’s being treated for bipolar disorder — a mental illness that can bring depression, mania, risky behavior and delusions.
He’s had a highly publicized relationship with a “social acquaintance” that rocked his marriage.
His name is repeatedly linked to disgraced former Gov. Rod Blagojevich.
Now he’s the target of a federal investigation into “suspicious activity” into his congressional finances.
What does all this mean for Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.’s political future when the Nov. 6 election is a little more than three weeks away?
“He’s going to be re-elected,” political consultant Thom Serafin said. “In this particular part of the world, being a ‘D’ is so important.”

 That's what we've come to in this state and country. You can be the biggest dirt bag piece of shit in the world. Completely inept at your job. Which is disturbing, when your job is representing the people of this state. But the greatest part, is that Mr. Serafin is correct. Jackson will be reelected. He will be reelected even though he has done zero campaigning. ZERO! After all, he is sick.

 It almost says something about the peoples' right to vote.

Johnny O'Bloggin's Musical Monday.................

 Went to The Vic this past Friday. Spent the night Down town. A start to a long "Cotton" Anniversary celebration with my better half. capping it off next week with a long, but beautiful drive to NOLA.
 So anyway, bought tickets to see Social Distortion. One of my Queen's favorite bands. And the only one of her favorite bands, that I can deal with. Social D is a punk band that started in '79 in Orange County CA. I'm not a big "Punk" fan, but Mike Ness (Singer/Guitar) was highly influenced by country, especially Johnny Cash.
 So I don't like Punk Rock, and I do not like Country/Western. But I do enjoy a combination of the two. A unique sound if you ask me. This is "Story of my life".  Hope you enjoy.

The Winner is ?????????? Drum Roll Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                    Emmett C. Burns
                       Congratulations. You are the Beat-Off of the month for September.
 A line-backer for the Baltimore Ravens named Brendon Ayanbadejo is very active with his political beliefs.
 Apparently, if you support same sex marriage, your boss may get a call from a State Rep asking him to curb your political views.

 I know a lot of my friends feel differently than I do about Homo marriage. But even you guys have to admit, this is an egregious act by the Maryland House of Delegates member. Congratulations again member Burns.
 You are quite the Beat-Off.

Oh Canadaaaaaaaa..........

 My Brother-in-Law recently moved to Canada. He accepted a position at McGill University in Montreal. It is a very prestigious University. From my understanding, one of Canada's finest.
 I never gave to much thought about living in Canada. I've visited a few times. I must admit, I've always been a tad curious, never curious enough to research it, but curious none the less. You always hear about how wonderful the Canadian Government is. But maybe not.
 My Brother-in-Law e-mailed me when he received his first pay check. He grosses $4500, every two weeks. His take home is $2700. That is a taxation rate of 40%. He pays 20% to the Federal Government, and 20% to the Provincial Government. No refund.
 Healthcare is free(?), Tuition levels there are dirt cheap. $2700 a year to attend Mcgill. But in the end, Everyone pays 40%. Now I tried researching it, but could not find exact info on the tax rate for the poor, or welfare recipients. Maybe it is also 40%, maybe 0. I'm not sure. But everyone from the lower working middle class, to the upper class pay 40% on income. Now they also seem to have a separate tax for Capitol gains, which of course is lower than the 40%, but I could not find an exact number.
 I wanted to share this for one reason. Last year I was was able to lower my tax to 26%. Yes, Romney paid lower, but so did our President. With wages and investment income, I was in the five figure range. Middle class, right? In Canada, I would have paid 40%. My point is this, In the end, the middle class always pays. So, Middle class Americans, are you willing to pay 40%? Because the funding for The Affordable Healthcare Act is in question. At least in my opinion.
