Some stuff doesn't have to be law. 
Right now, the law says that you can put as many people as you want in your car so long as the driver isn't crowded and all available seatbelts are being used.

This makes sense. If there's a seatbelt there, you should use it so I don't have to pay to piece you back together after you're thrown out into oncoming traffic.

Sometimes, however, you need to fit an extra person in the vehicle and there just isn't a belt there. In that case, should the law force you to find some other form of transportation?

If you can only fit your family of 5 in your car, and your cousin comes to visit, do you have to leave him home when you go out to dinner?

If you're going to do a job and your truck only has 3 seatbelts in it, can you not take 4 people?

Over the weekend some people died because there were 10 of them in a minivan and not enough seatbelts. That's unfortunate, but does it mean the law should be changed to prevent this from ever happening again? Would those people be safe and sound right now if the laws were different?

It just leaves a bad taste in my mouth when laws are changed based on current stories in the media rather than based on actual statistics showing a real problem. It seems to me like political posturing when they could be doing something far more constructive with their time. I guess time will tell what comes out of this but I can only hope they're looking at all the consequences before just going ahead and making up new laws. A lot of people will be negatively impacted by what could amount to very little in the way of positive outcomes.

Belinda Stronach is Allegedly a Dirty Whore 
Homewrecker.

Homewrecker who was elected as a Conservative representative to govern. I sure hope her constituants think twice before casting their votes next time.

Of course, when her daddy is the boss, it's a tough call voting your conscience. Assuming those people have a conscience.

Asked bluntly about her sex life, Stronach responded: "Let's face it. I don't sit at home and knit on Friday nights."


Dirty, dirty, whore.

Who will defend Lebanon??? 
"Who will defend Lebanon in case of a new Israeli offensive?" he asked. "The Lebanese army and international troops are incapable of protecting Lebanon," he said, flanked by Lebanese and Hezbollah flags.


That's from Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah. It just begs the question... would Lebanon need defending if Hezbollah didn't go around starting conflicts?

Hmm...

Now to answer his question... wouldn't the Lebanese army defend Lebanon if such defense were needed? As I understand it, they weren't involved in this ordeal because Israel wasn't attacking with the intent to hurt Lebanon but, rather, with the intent to hurt Hezbollah who was using Lebanon as their playground. So really, if Lebanon was in need of defense, it was against Hezbollah making them a target. Seems to me that Israel was actually helping them out in this regard. I don't recall hearing anything about the Lebanese army going in and stopping Hezbollah from keeping the conflict raging.

Maybe that just didn't make the news... but I doubt it.

Time to take over the world. 
So now that I'm a millionaire, who would like to help run my campaign?

NotWeasel for Prime Minister.

Or... rather... NotWeasel for... umm... member of parliament? Stupid political system.

More money than you can shake a stick at. 
Our lottery here has ballooned up to $42 million. That's a lot of money and I fully intend to win it.

For all my concerns about the complete incompetancy of our government, a big chunk of change like that would go a long way toward getting me into office where I can make a go at setting things straight.

I have to wonder though. Is there anyone in office right now who went in wanting to make possitive changes to this country? Is anyone concerned with stopping the misappropriation of taxpayer's money?

If so, what happened? Is the system so corrupt that even those with good intentions end up buried within the beaurocracy and reduced to ineffectual mouthpieces, held off to the side for their lack of political affiliation? Is there really anything that can be done to prevent the eventual slide into a complete collapse of government?

God willing, we'll all get a chance to find out.

A tax on people bad a math, eh? I suppose it's to the benefit of my unrealistic ambitions that I couldn't count apples with an abacus if my life depended on it.
