Let’s Start With the Department of Education

I am baffled daily with the ridiculousness that masquerades as the United States Federal Government. I mean, really, is there a better example of elitist ass clowns who bleat on about fixing this and changing that all while completely ignoring all the obvious fixes and changes that need to happen? The debt debate has been a perfect example of the hopelessness that exists when one thinks that any of these fools are in the slightest bit interested in doing what needs to be done in Washington DC. The only thing that is more ridiculous than a DC politicians are the millions of Americans who play along with the charade, believing that this party or that party is really the one trying to fix things and the “other side” is a group of godless heathens intent on ruining the American way of life.

Don’t Fear Default… Goose and Gander at a National Level

This weekend was a “road trip” weekend for me and my lovely wife. A trip back to my hometown, which also included a detour to Hershey Park so that Mrs. Weapon could experience the wonderful world of chocolate for the first time. What Mecca is to Muslims, Hershey is to 52% of the US population. On the ride north, I listened to a minimal amount of news, instead opting for some music that the USWeapon clan could sing along with on the drive. But I did listen to about an hour of talk radio coverage of the debt ceiling discussions happening in Washington DC. As a result, SUFA gets this article because I am tired of hearing all the bull dookey around the topic.
The Time Has Come for a Reality Check

Horse Thieves

Why do words matter?  I have corrected people several times about Nero fiddling while Rome burned.  False statement in all aspects, fiddle was invented a thousand years later, Nero was not in Rome during the fire, even rushed back and was the driving force behind the recovery. He housed and fed the homeless at his personal expense, and required brick homes to be built as part of a fire prevention policy from that day forward.

Seems funny to me that Nero, who should be given the highest praise, is remembered as an un-caring elitist.  So why does it matter today?  A hero from a thousand years ago is commonly believed to have been an uncaring scumbag.
How Does Nero’s Story Compare to Modern Day Storylines?

Guest Commentary – Fantasy Candidate Part 2

Thursday night brings me to part two of Jon Smith’s fantasy candidate series. I was pleased with the discussion around part one and after reading the parts that are yet to come, I am excited to be sharing this series with all of you. You already know what I think of what Jon brings to the table and this series is no exception. I am not going to write out a big introduction tonight as I am having a little trouble typing. I hurt my wrist the other day and I am still trying to figure out if it is broken or not. I guess if it is still hurting tomorrow I may have to get it looked at. Wouldn’t be the first time I have broken something and did my best to ignore it 🙂  Needless to say typing is a little tough for me to do this evening as every time I reach for certain keys the pain shoots up my forearm. Let’s all hope for the best as if it is broken that would put a serious damper on my blog writing ability. So instead of my rambling, I will simply turn it over to Jon as he continues the quest to identify the traits in a candidate that would serve the constituents of SUFA. I will add a few more pictures of my personal fantasy candidates, however!
