EVERTHING MUST GO!!!!!





Huge Liquidation Sale!!!!!

We gotta be crazy.....




Make an offer, historic office building for sale. built in 1879.....

Gotta move it real quick, current owners to consider all serious bids....


Aaaah....Michigan....Let's recap.....


To help promote voters to elect a Republican Governor, the republican michigan house and senate opt to repeal the Single Buisness Tax.....cutting taxes paid by well....businesses.....and the business owners like this but....


...to not scare off voters, the same house and senate propose no plan to replace, cause that would mean higher taxes to the people who actually vote, the.....i believe....10 billion in revenue, but.....


act surprised when the state has run out of money a year later.....


....but let's not talk politics, as the republican senate leader kills every bi-partisan solution, cause he wants to run for governor next election.....but i just saw him on the evening news begging the governor to not shut down the state...



but in reality people only care if.....they can't buy lottery tickets, booze and the casinos have to shut down!!!!


If the people from Myanmar want democracy and we seem to be the country who tries to bring it those who want it.....why haven't we invaded there???? At least the citizens of that country are willing to help stand up for democracy....


.....how close to China is Myanmar???? They could bomb our new troops there with lead-based painted bombs....that would be bad. Maybe we should stay in Iraq.



And, i don't care where the leader of another nation is from....dammit, if he or she is a sovereign leader and wants to visit the UN, let him....and if he wants to lay a wreath at ground zero....maybe take it as the olive branch that it could be....why does the entire country seem so damned happy to keep Iran an enemy....


i saw Colin Powell speak once about when Yuri Andropov, during the end of the USSR, Mr. A looked at the distrust in Mr P's eyes, threw his head back, laughed and said "you need to find a new enemy, cause we're not it anymore" Okay a paraphrase....


i mean would trade between the US and Iran be terrible.....next thing i'm be supporting opening trade with Cuba....i must be anti-american. It's just another country our business owners could send jobs too.


Movin on to running....i gotta admit to no real excitement with the big run in Chicago. It could be taper madness but mostly, i just want to go, have a nice morning run and go to St Louis on a business trip.


On the plus side....i have my 2 rooms, $29 a night, downtown, 5 blocks from the starting corral, verified yesterday. You would think that would be enough to gather a carpool with another runner, from the metro area (perhaps the one who is using the other room, with her girl crush, alas their tender weekend be cramped)....so dear Fun Guv doesn't have the long drive home alone after i board a plane at Midway, but....c'est la vie (mock french...more anti-american propaganda) Man, nobody has a sense of humor anymore!!!


Anybody looking to carpool??? But i'll try to give the Steers salute as i cross the finish line


thanks for reading

Man, cheer up, the sun will rise again!! Where's that marathon excitement? It's hiding in there somewhere.

You can carpool with us if you can be in Okemos by 9 AM Friday morning. Then we would be leaving on Sunday by about 2-3 after some cool down and a lunch refuel. Fun Guv can leave the car at my house (just off I-96). Let me know.

Steers!

Lukie,

There is nothing better than the old Steers salute at the end of a marathon...

except for maybe the Indy 500.

Oh, and by the way, when I registered for the Richmond Marathon the nickname that they are printing on my bib number is... "Steers"..

Enjoy Chicago

Lukie,

Perhaps you might want to check into taking the train. hydrate all you want, no stress over driving through Chicago, and meet ne potential clients, what's not to love.

The Pontiac station is calling your name.

Have you considered that the issue isn't, "Hey, let's think of a new way to get money from the taxpayers to make up for the lousy single business tax cut!" but rather, "Hey, we need to come up with a way to spend less money so we can get rid of things like our lousy sales tax extenstion (that we promised would be gone by now)!"

Pesonally, if all we need to do is stop booze and gambling, I say go for it! I can drop by Canada to buy myself a drink :-)

Republicans suck. So do Democrats. I'm thinking we should give anarchy a shot.

Bring on the 'tender weekend'.

Trade with Iran wouldn't be terrible. And the US wouldn't send jobs there, because it isn't cheap to hire their workers. Iranians actually have a decent standard of living, so what's the fun in exploiting that? Now Cuba, we could definately take from behind...
