America Is Officially Over. We Are Now Western Europe

The Joke is on you America...

With the rammed through passage of Obamacare we can welcome ourselves to government mandated mediocrity. That's right we are now Western Europe.. We have been stripped of our freedom on a grand scale. I'm not sure this was stoppable. We only had the power to slow it down. We did all we could. Now we must wait for November and clean house literally. And even then I don't know if we can overturn any of this. Here's what you can do.. CALL YOUR CONGRESSMAN OFTEN www.usa.gov/Contact/Elected.shtml. Be polite. But let them know that if they voted for this bill they are gone in November. Maybe if we show our teeth a little we can avoid a full on revolution later on.. no one wants that. We just want them to leave and leave soon.

Welcome to Socialism. Welcome to the end.

Fun Facts

The Best Of Fred Thompson's Facebook Status Updates

Fred Thompson is my new quotable hero...

  • Toyota is questioning the accuracy of a California driver's story about his out-of-control Prius. They probably got suspicious when the driver said "I stomped on the brake pedal - you know... the long skinny one".
  • President Obama said he wants to overhaul the immigration system. Knowing Obama, it's probably just another crazy entitlement scheme to give everyone in America a free illegal immigrant
  • The IRS visited a carwash in Sacramento because the owner was 4 cents short in paying his taxes. Poor guy. With a piddling little violation like that, he'll never be able to get a job in Obama's cabinet.
  • During a speech on health care, President Obama said "I don't accept business as usual". What... you mean "profitable"?
  • In a recent speech, President Obama bravely announced that he's opposed to waste, fraud, and abuse. I'm guessing his next risky position will be denouncing cornflakes that don't stay crunchy in milk.
  • To meet the Obama administration’s targets for cutting greenhouse gasses, the government would have to tax gasoline until it cost $7 a gallon. I think Obama would have a real problem doing this. And by "this", I mean "keeping the tax hike that low."
  • Gun rights advocates have held "open carry" meet-ups at Starbucks stores in the San Francisco Bay Area, which has angered gun control advocates. Actually, not angered so much as embarrassed to discover that the Bill of Rights didn't stop after the First Amendment.

You Want ObamaCare? You Have To Watch This First...

This is must watch for liberals that believe the propaganda that Canada has a great "free" health care system.

Fun Facts

* I want to leave a HUGE carbon footprint. I want people in the future to know Aaron has been here. I don't even recycle. In fact I will take my neighbors garbage and dump it into the sewer in hopes it gets into the water supply somehow.

* I have a feeling Phoenix University Online is going to make a surprise show in the Final Four this year. They have a wicked 3 pointer if they hit the buttons fast enough.

* The ratings for the Winter Olympics would skyrocket if they added the Snowball Fight as an official event.

5 Overrated Bands And Musicians

Cover of "Blonde on Blonde"Cover of Blonde on Blonde

A quick look at 5 bands or musicians that I think just don't live up to their massive hype.

1. U2 -- This is a band that has rabid fans. Being a fan of U2 is usually a result of ones college days when it's brainwashed into you by fraternities and overzealous roommates. However if you just sit down and listen to the actual music, the melodies just aren't that memorable and in fact are pretty bland. And also Bono has one of the worst whines in the industry.

2.The Rolling Stones -- Not much to say here. They have some really good tunes. Some of their songs I really enjoy. But to call them the quintessential rock band is pushing it. It's one of those bands where they have tons of albums but only a 10 song CD should be enough to carry their greatest hits, yet to listen to the critics you'd think that every song they made was gold. They haven't quit touring either which is disconcerting. Seeing men in their late 60's still rockin out seems kind of sad in a way.

3. Bob Dylan -- I could go on and on here. Bob Dylan is one of those artists that is hyped by snobby, condescending critics. I have tried to like Highway 61 Revisited and Blonde On Blonde, because I was told by the critics that these are THE greatest albums in history.. so I put in my player and I can't make it through 4 or 5 tracks. It's lousy. And the dude has like 80 albums.. and out of all of those there are maybe 5 good Dylan songs. Way overrated!

4. Leonard Cohen -- I know that most people have not heard of Leonard Cohen. However if you have ever picked up a Rolling Stone or Blender Magazine, or looked at Metacritic.com then you would think that this man is god himself. I HAD to check it out because all I had read about him was that he was one of the greatest songwriters of all time. But the second I put any one of his albums on I wanted to shoot my ears off with a 12 gage. He might have written good songs, but you wouldn't know it because he is also one of the worst singers in history. He holds a tune even worse than Bob Dylan, and that's not great at all.

5. The White Stripes -- It's just bad rock-n-roll. I don't want to relive the 70's garage band stuff. But again Rolling Stone Magazine and Metacritic.com seem to think they are the only thing worth writing about. Jack White is not a great guitarist or singer, and Meg White is a horrible drummer.. So why they are consistently hyped is anyone's guess.

HONORABLE MENTION: Radiohead. 95% of the time they are terrible, yet they have rabid fans.

That was fun. I hope that makes everyone mad! Yay!!

5 Reasons To Visit Thoughts And Conditions

Thoughts and Conditions
* He only blogs once every 4 months.. so if you aren't much of a reader, this is the blog for you. Also it's like the Olympics, the wait is long but the payoff is spectacular.

* I know this guy, so he is cool by proxy.

* He is the founder of the TAADD Foundation. TAADD is Teens Advocating Against Domestic Disputes. They make open hands, not closed fists. They do good work in the greater Wichita area. Make sure to get your TAADD card today.

* He blogs a lot about Weezer because Weezer rocks (or at least they used to). The little secret is that he didn't even like Weezer until I, yes I forced him to like them. At least that's how I remember it.

* I have 3 regular readers of my blog, and he has 2 regular reader of his blog. So if we combine forces we will be a blogging powerhouse, an unstoppable force with as many as 5 regular readers. We will change the world... probably for the worse, but still.. CHANGE!!!

Whatever, Just go read it.

We Are All To Blame For The Economic Collapse

* We are all to blame for the erosion of American economic dominance. Every single one of us have purchased things we can't afford. We need to go back the days where when you ran out of money you ran out of the ability to purchase.

* No one is to blame but ourselves for upside mortgages and foreclosures.. You signed on the dotted line and you knew the consequences. You chose to move out of that apartment and buy a house. The bank cannot force you to sign.

* Credit card companies and lenders are predators for sure. But when you walk onto a college campus and sign up for a credit card because they are offering free t-shirts.. trust me, you are very much to blame.

* The reason we don't hold Washington D.C. to "Pay-as-you-go" is because we don't do it ourselves.

Let's face it.. our eyes got bigger than our wallets and now it is time to pay the piper.

The Cool Report: The Redundant Clock

I don't know where to buy it, or if you even can. (It may just be a photoshop) But I think it's a cool postmodern idea on the boring clock.
