I find myself not too happy with Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) today. It appears that on Wednesday he went on to the liberal talk radio show of Bill Press and said?
BILL PRESS:? Alright, well good for you. You know, we gotta work on that, because they are just shutting down progressive talk from one city after another. All we want is, you know, some balance on the airwaves, that’s all. You know, we’re not going to take any of the conservative voices off the airwaves, but just make sure that there are a few progressives and liberals out there, right?
SENATOR TOM HARKIN (D-IA): Exactly, and that’s why we need the fair — that’s why we need the Fairness Doctrine back.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Ok, ok, I know it’s a couple of days late, but I’ve been on vacation for the last two weeks. It was great to spend as much time as possible doing as little as humanly possible.
I spent most of the two weeks loafing around playing World of Warcraft, watching movies, and thoroughly abusing the new pizza cooker that I bought for myself. Of course the new cooker means fewer Godfather’s orders which in the long run will save me money. I went to Hy-Vee today and for the $20.00 I normally spend on one pizza from Godfathers I picked up 10 frozen pizzas. Yes, if your wondering, I tend to eat a lot of pizza. Up until now I was probably wasting around $100.00 a month on pizza from Godfather’s. While they make great pizzas, its something I’ve never really been able to afford on such a regular basis.
With the beginning of the new year, comes my return to work. BOOOO!!! Don’t get me wrong, I’m satisfied with my job, something that not many people can say. But with two weeks off you just sort of get out of the habit and now I have to get back into it.
Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone. Cinco de Mayo celebrates the vicotry of the Mexican Militia over the French in the Battle of Puebla in 1862. The holiday is actually celebrated more in the US than in Mexico. Check out the Huffington Post’s write up on the history of Cinco de Mayo for more.
