Typical Catholic BS
There was an article in USA Today that says the Vatican won't change their celibacy rules. This happened in a summit led by Pope Benedict XVI that was spurred by a married African archbishop. This archbishop was excommunicated from the Roman Catholic Church for banging his wife.

However, if a priest starts banging an alter boy, that's OK. If word leaks out, move the priest to another parish and forget about it.

Hello? How hypocritical can you get? You're gone if you bang your wife but go ahead, plow right into that little kid's butt.

Adopted from Catholic Social Services and raised in the Catholic church, I should have more respect for the church, right? WRONG!!! I'm through with the church as is the rest of my family. We didn't even register with our new parish when we moved. We don't want a single cent of our money going to the church to pay for defense in law suits... screw 'em!

Except for weddings and possibly funerals, don't look for me in any churches... you won't find me there.

Election's Over
I can tell the election is finally over... overnight, the endless political ads just stopped (thank god).

However, the true telltale sign is gas prices! In just one week since the election, I've seen the price for a gallon of gas go from $2.06 to $2.09 to $2.11 to $2.13 to $2.16. Five increases totaling $.10 in just 7 days!!!

Now I know some of you out there are saying, "Dave, that's just a coincidence. The president can't manipulate gas prices." To you folks I say, "You're probably right, the president can't manipulate gas prices."

However, the oil companies can manipulate gas prices. You see, it's in the best interest of the oil companies to have the GOP a majority in Congress. That said, they can easily back off on their $36 billion profit to lower gas prices. Consumers get happy, and they forget about record gas prices along with record oil company profits.

Guess what guys... AMERICA HAS SPOKEN! Changes are a coming!

Fall Sucks
This is our first fall in the new house and I now realize that I took something for granted at the old house... TREES! Or the lack there of.

At the old house, we had a tiny, little Japanese Maple out front and two small Crab Apple trees out back. Raking the leaves involved 2 days worth of work every year and less than a dozen trash bags.

Here at our new house I've got this monster Oak tree out front and a huge Maple tree out back. We've been raking the past 4 weekends using between 8-10 bags each weekend. Add to that a shit-load of acorns and you've got some serious work.

What a pain in the ass!

I need to find something other than rakes for this job going forward. A lawn vacuum cleaner for the acorns would be nice too.

Ah, the joys of home ownership.

America Has Spoken!!!
It's about time too. The DEMS now control both the House of Representatives and the Senate. America has finally taken off their rose-colored glasses, look around, and said, "Holy, shit! What did we do back in 2004?"

Me, I did the right thing in 2004. But for all you others out there (and you know who you are) welcome back to reality.

It's amazing, Mr. "Stay the Course" now thinks maybe he was wrong and should change directions. Mr. "Rumsfield Stays" said goodbye to Donald Rumsfield yesterday. Mr. "My Way or the Highway" now wants partisanship. And have you noticed, gas prices are on the rise again!

The DEMS have their work cut out for them. First they need to fix all the mistakes made during the past 6 years. Then they need to investigate and reprimand the people that blatantly stepped over the line. You know, the people that fabricated intelligence about Weapons of Mass Destruction to justify an IRAQ invasion. The people that saw to it that Halliburton got an exclusive, no bid contract to provide services in IRAQ. The people who ignored constitutional law and authorized illegal wiretaps on US citizens. Wow, I could go on and on.

Anyway, 2 more years and we can fix the mistake in the Oval Office. I can't wait!

I'm happily married to my high-school sweetheart and have two sons. I love relaxing down the Jersey Shore. I also enjoy sitting by the pool after dinner, talking to the wife, watching the kids, and smoking a cigar.
