The President

He signed a bill that gave amnesty to undocumented immigrants. He grew the size of the federal government and the budget, added a whole new cabinet level agency and added tens of thousands of government workers to the federal payroll. He tripled the deficit. He bailed out and expanded social security with a big fat tax increase. He raised corporate taxes by hundreds of billions of dollars. He raised taxes on gasoline. He, in fact, signed into law the largest tax increase in history. He supported federal handgun control. He called for a world without nuclear weapons.



Name That President.

Self-Humiliation

I've heard that one of the better ways to motivate yourself is to make a public statement while also being willing to humiliate yourself.

My goal is to get back to "six-pack abs" by the end of summer (that's September 22 for those who are astronomically challenged).

No drugs. No special diets. My plan is to light heavy weights (squat, deadlift, bench, repeat) every other day as well as watch my caloric intake (1,900 calories a day) and macro nutrients.

I can't believe I've let myself go like this. It's disgusting. But it's temporary!

So ... here goes. Here -- go ahead and laugh and say "yuck" and such-like -- is my BEFORE picture, as of June 9, 2010:



All The Best,

Older and Grumpier

Why is it that older people, who are retired and pretty much have nothing else to do, are the ones who complain the most about waiting in the doctor's lobby? What, are they missing The Price Is Right or something?? And, they have to complain out loud, making sure everyone hears them so they can make us all miserable. ARGH!!
