Republicans Sicken Me.

They passed the enormous tax bill that fucks the poor and feeds the rich. Adding to our national debt by a paltry 1.5 T.

I hope that this is the last straw for all of the hangers on who really want to believe that the R’s are acting in the interests of the people. The only interest they have is how best to screw us, screw the environment, screw the planet, screw everything and everybody, and in the process line their pockets with piles of $$.

My only hope now is that Mueller is the iceburg to the Titanic. And that people come to understand what has been done to us and our country, all in the name of democracy. In the name of progress, in the name of rocket fuel to the economy.

Bullshit!

Profit and its best friend greed (Yes I stole this from our conversation Mak) is what is at work here. The absolute unscrupulous desire for a legislative win is what is at work here. These assholes passed this bill without even knowing what exactly is in it! They kept it all a big secret from everyone until they dropped it in the lap of the Senate last night, and pushed like a runaway locomotive to get it passed immediately. Before anyone could figure out what shenanigans they have pulled.

This bodes not well for our country. This is not how legislation should be done. This is running roughshod all over what is supposed to be a democracy. This is a despicable act by a desperate Senate, that is probably hoping this bill will be the crowning achievment of this administration, just before the iceburg sneaks up on them. Like the Titanic. She is sinking, and I hope each and every R that was a party to this legislation, is on board when she goes down.

And Nero plays as Rome burns.

If the revolution is taking applications, CALL ME!

There Can Be Only One

5 dollar box that is. I don’t know about most of you but I have to do a lot of running at times, and when you are caught out in the wild when hunger strikes it is all too easy to stop in somehwere for a bite. I have tried every 5 dollar box I know of (yes I am a cheap bastard!) and just wanted to relate my personal findings. All of these boxes I tried were the chicken tenders variety. Also bear in mind I am close to 5’11” and run around in the general vicinity of 215 lb bare nekkid (there is a visual image for ya). So I am a pretty good sized guy with a pretty good sized appetite.

First the Wendys 5 dollar box. The chicken tenders were decent enough though small. The meal for me was unsatisfying. I was still very interested in getting more food than it actually offered for 5 bucks.

The Dairy Queen 5 dollar box. Quite similar to the Wendys version, though the small sundae helped a little.

The Hardees 5 dollar box. This one was a little better as far as a satisfying meal. The cookie is superior to the KFC box. I am a cookie enthusiast and would know 🙂

And finally the KFC 5 dollar box. This is the first 5 dollar meal I know of, and by far stands out as the best. The tenders are larger than any of the other offerings. The biscuit helps to fill you up making it much more fulfilling overall. You can get mashed potatoes/gravy or potato wedges, and the cookie tops it off.

It just so happens I was out last night when hunger struck, I have 2 boys at home that needed to eat also, (The wife was at work) and I had not the time or inclination to cook. So I thought I’d stop at McDonalds and grab a few quarter pounders from the McPick menu. You can get a pair of several kinds of burger offerings for, guess how much? 5 bucks. So there I was sitting in a long line thinking to myself, “I have 2 grown boys to feed and I’m damn hungry myself, I can get us 3 deals of 2 burgers, and we have chips and drinks at home.” (yes I am a cheap bastard!) Then it hit me, I’d be spending 15 bucks plus tax, for 3, 2 burger deals with no drinks or fries or anything else, and “why in the hell would I want to do that when there is a KFC not 2 minutes from here?”

Needless to say in our trash this morning is the remains of 3 KFC 5 dollar boxes. And this mundane post was born. I guess we take what we can get when the inspiration hits us…

So, my personal ranking of the 5 dollar boxes is #1. KFC, #2. Hardees (the better cookie did not tip this one in favor of the number 1 slot), #3. Dairy Queen, and coming in at the bottom of the box, #4. Wendys.

So says, the cheap bastard, SD.  🙂
