Morning Seditionists

Finally made it to Friday. And I have next Monday and Tuesday off, so it’s a big weekend. It’ll be even bigger if we win the Mega Millions, which is now up to something like $540 million $640 million. If I win, I hope to do things like vote for Mitt Romney, and tell amusing stories about the time my dad closed an auto plant and laid off thousands or workers. A real knee slapper.

On the way in to work yesterday, I was behind a truck with a cap on it (which is always annoying, ‘cuz you can’t see through or around it). Anyhow, on his rear window, he had a “Don’t Mess with Texas” bumper sticker in the middle, and two “Bush/Cheney ’04” stickers on either side. And I thought to myself, “gee, there’s a guy I’d like to hang out with.” Alas, we eventually parted ways, and I never got to meet him. In fact, I’m only assuming it was a dude, ‘cuz I don’t really know.

The SCOTUS dog and pony show wraps up today, as oral arguments shift to the concept of severability, and also something about Medicaid expansion. It seems that things didn’t go all that well yesterday, sending liberals into a tizzy. I mean, so Fat Tony was mean to Solicitor General Donald Verrilli (who doesn’t sound like he was exactly up for the job). Big deal. What did people expect? Sounds like the left-leaning justices had to bail Verrilli out.

Today is garbage day, which is always pretty exciting. And as if that wasn’t enough, it’s Day 2 of Healthcarepalooza, as anal arguments focus on whether it’s constitutional to make you eat broccoli, buy a health club membership, and stop worshiping at the feet of our Lord God Jesus Almighty. Or something like that. Also birth control figures into this somehow, too, from what I gather.

So, Obamacare goes to the Supreme Court this week, starting today, when I believe they’ll take up the issue of whether or not the “fee” for not having insurance is actually a tax. If it’s a tax, they effectively punt the ball until 2015 or something, because you can’t question the constitutionality of a tax until it’s actually been levied. Or so the pinkos at NPR tell me, anyway. They make a big deal out of the dog and pony oral arguments show, but I find it hard to believe any of it actually matters, and that they don’t already have their minds made up. But maybe I’m wrong.

Orange Day

Yes, it was on this date in 1870 that Syracuse University was founded. Or opened. Or whatever. So they call this “Orange Day,” even though orange wasn’t the school’s color back then. In fact, I don’t think they had any colors to start with, but in 1872 they adopted the truly inspiring combination of pea green and pink. Eventually that became pink and blue, until, in 1890, they got made fun of by students at Hamilton College and adopted orange because nobody else had that color yet. So, here we are.

Finally, it’s Friday. What a long week it’s been. And I’m a little tired this morning, having stayed up past my bedtime. Well worth it, though. Now, let’s get this week over with already.

OK, this is a little late in the day, but I find myself with a few minutes to kill while running out the clock at work, so I thought I’d get something up here. This is the time of day when my back is on fire and it’s all I can do to sit in the chair. Walking around doesn’t help much (not for long, anyway), unfortunately. So, the Jets got Tim Tebow for some strange reason. With the, I believe, the fifth worst QB (statistically) already on staff, they made a move for the third worst one. Another brilliant move by the men in green. It’s hard to be a Jets fan. I guess there are people out there who hate the Jets, though I don’t really know why. I mean, why hate a team that occasionally goes to the playoffs, but hasn’t really won anything since Super Bowl III?

Congratulations to Mittens, crowned king of Illinois last night. Interesting that Newt finished a distant third. I really thought he had something going with the fake outrage over Robert Deniro making a joke. Of course Ricky trumped him with the whole Obama shouldn’t let his kid go to Mexico thing. Stupid meeting day today. Whoopie.

Spring!

Yes, as of 1:14 AM EDT, spring has officially sprung. And for the first time in a long, long, time, it actually feels very spring-like. Actually, it feels more like summer, with the temperature supposed to be around 80 for a few days. Yesterday we even had thunderstorms late in the day. And I’ve been pulling ticks off the dogs at an alarming rate. I used to use Frontline ‘cuz it’s supposed to take care of ticks. But it didn’t seem to be killing the fleas, so I switched to Advantage (we have cats, so I’m leery of using K9 Advantix). But with all the ticks, I decided to order some Fiprogard (which is generic Frontline). Hope it works.
