King of the Wild Frontier

and other bits and pieces

so anyway, I should be doing my school-work right now but I need a break. As far as my continuing education is concerned, I have learned that Val-U-Rite vodka and homework do not mix well.

I had a revelation whilst walking The Wonder Poodle this evening: If this whole ObamaCare thingie gets "deemed" as passed on Sunday and Teh Won signs it, it would certainly suck out loud to be invested in the stock market come Monday morning.

Just a thought. I'm not big on predictions but if ObamaCare gets "deemed" and signed, I think a lot of money will get pulled from the market in short order. Like, something approaching one sixth of the current market capitalization. I know, I know: Why can't I have these insights during regular business hours, when you could call your broker and move stuff around. I'm working on my "timing".

Anyhoo, a post titled "King of the Wild Frontier" should contain references to either Thayrone (Supply Side Politics 2.0's Blues Provider of Choice of industrial strength Rhythm & Blues) and / or Davy Crockett (who killed him a bear when he was only three). In this case, I'm going with Davy Crockett.

Via Cold Fury (actual), comes this gem: "Not Yours to Give". I'll excerpt from Mike's excerpt...

“Every man in this House knows it is not a debt. We cannot, without the grossest corruption, appropriate this money as the payment of a debt. We have not the semblance of authority to appropriate it as charity..."
Read both of the whole things, here and here.

There were other things, but it's gotten late early again and I have homework to do. It truly suck to be a growd up student.

more soon

ps. President Obama has been in Office for just under 14 months. I've been unemployed for just over 10 months now. Coincidence? Discuss amongst yourselves, this issue will appear on your Final Exam on Tuesday 02NOV10.
