Some folks like this kind of weather because they love to sweat and feel the sun beat down on their bodies, turning brown and beyond. I take to air conditioning and do not venture out after 8 AM until after 10PM. My heart goes out to anyone who does not have air conditioning or at least a gigantic fan!
Got an interesting e mail today I want to share:
Congressional Reform Act of 2011
1. No Tenure / No Pension.
A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office..
2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security.
All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.
3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.
4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.
5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.
6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.
7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/12.
The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen. Congressmen made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.
Of course, there is absolutely no way congress would pass such an amendment - it favors we, the common citizen WAY TOO MUCH!
Working on a song! Based on a tee shirt a guy I saw at walmart was wearing:
You Had Me at “Get Lost”
Larry Heagle, words, music, June 15, 2011
I walked up to her table
Motioned to the empty chair
“Get lost!” she snarled so sweetly
“My friend is sitting there”
But I made a move to sit down
And she grabbed the waiting chair
And busted it over my head
But, Hell, I didn’t care
Don’t you know that you had me at “Get Lost”
Do whatever you want to
Honey, yer the boss
Don’t you know that you had me at get lost?
And every part of no -
Is the part I don’t understand
She grabbed a tequila bottle
Did the same thing she done with the chair
Then she kicked me til my shins was bloody
And the meat was all laid bare
She gave me a titty twister
While she kneed me in the groin
And I fell to the floor
Cryin’ “Gimme some more!”
Cuz there ain’t no where I’m goin’
Her friend came out of the rest room
She musta been six foot two
From her flannel shirt
To her hobnail boots
She was woman thru and thru
And when she saw what was goin’ down
She said “we’re not thru with you”
She broke my jaw with a big left hook
I bet her fist is still black and blue
