Happy St. Patrick's Day

May you be poor in misfortune, 
Rich in blessings, 
Slow to make enemies, 
And quick to make friends. 
But rich or poor, quick or slow, 
May you know nothing but happiness
From this day forward.

Just remember not everyone can be Irish, someone has to drive. Have a Happy and Safe St. Patricks.

Vote Them All Out!

If we only could. I have spoken to friends that stand on all sides of the political spectrum from different areas of the country. They all feel the exact same way about our political leadership, Fuck Them! I really think that in the next election if you are an incumbent politician than you really need to update your resume. 

Because it doesn't seem to matter what the issue is, pick any that needs to be addressed, they have done ABSOULTLY NOTHING. I'm not going to point fingers and say "Oh it is the Left" or "Oh it is the Right" they both fucking SUCK! The only member of congress that I have even the least bit of respect for anymore is Bernie Sanders from VT.  I do not respect Reed, Pelosi, Cantor, or Beohner all four of them are exactly the same, useless. 

If you don't believe me then check out this study that was done by the 


Congress somewhere below cockroaches, traffic jams, and Nickelback in Americans' esteem Public Policy Polling
Our newest national poll finds that Congress only has a 9% favorability rating with 85% of voters viewing it in a negative light. We've seen poll after poll after poll over the last year talking about how unpopular Congress is but really, what's the difference between an 11% or a 9% or a 7% favorability rating? So we decided to take a different approach and test Congress' popularity against 26 different things. And what we found is that Congress is less popular than cockroaches, traffic jams, and even Nickelback
Here's what we found:
It's gross to have lice but at least they can be removed in a way that given the recent reelection rates members of Congress evidently can't: Lice 67 Congress 19
Brussel sprouts may have been disgusting as a kid, but evidently they're now a lot less disgusting than Congress: Brussel Sprouts 69 Congress 23
The NFL replacement refs may have screwed everything up, but voters think Congress is screwing everything up even worse: Replacement Refs 56 Congressmen 29 (the breakdown among Packers fans might be a little bit different).
Colonoscopies are not a terribly pleasant experience but at least they have some redeeming value that most voters aren't seeing in Congress: Colonoscopies 58 Congress 31
And you can make the same point about root canals: Root Canals 56 Congress 32
You might get a bad deal from a used car salesmen, but voters evidently think they're getting an even worse deal from Congress: Used Car Salesmen 57 Congress 32
Being stuff in traffic sucks, but voters are even less happy about being stuck with this Congress: Traffic Jams 56 Congress 34
America might have had to bail out France multiple times over the years but voters still have a more charitable opinion of it than Congress: France 46 Congress 37
Carnies may use loaded dice, but voters still think they have a better chance of winning with them than Congress: Carnies 39 Congress 31
It may be true that everyone hates Nickelback, but apparently everyone hates Congress even more: Nickelback 39 Congress 32
Genghis Khan did a lot of bad stuff but I guess it's faded from voters' minds in a way that Congress' recent misdeeds haven't: Genghis Khan 41 Congress 37
DC political pundits and Donald Trump aren't held in very high esteem by the population, but they still both manage to just barely edge Congress: DC political pundits 37 Congress 34 and Donald Trump 44 Congress 42
Cockroaches are a pretty good reason to call the exterminator but voters might be even more concerned if their homes were infested with members of Congress: Cockroaches 45 Congress 43
Now the news isn't all bad for Congress:
By relatively close margins it beats out Lindsey Lohan (45/41), playground bullies (43/38), and telemarketers (45/35). And it posts wider margins over the Kardashians (49/36), John Edwards (45/29), lobbyists (48/30), Fidel Castro (54/32), Gonorrhea (53/28), Ebola (53/25), Communism (57/23), North Korea (61/26), and meth labs (60/21)
But when you're less popular than cockroaches, Genghis Khan, traffic jams, and yes even Nickelback, well, it might be time to reevaluate. http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/main/2013/01/congress-somewhere-below-cockroaches-traffic-jams-and-nickleback-in-americans-esteem.html


They want an issue to rally behind; how about improving their image by working together for solutions to the problems that face our nation instead of being a road block for progress. So if you have a member of congress or the Senate that is up for re-election I say vote the Fucker out!
