Damn it, the Bitch is gonna take RI

Hopefully she’ll lose Texas! I cannot stand Hillary Clinton, there I said it. I knew the day she ran for the Senate that she only did it because she wanted to be President. I think I dislike her because of her corporate whoring. I don’t like that fact that a chosen few will set her policy. Obama had a clear mandate from individuals. She will not protect us, she will not be effective. And I’ll make a prediction here, she will lose to McCain. Why? Because there are a lot of people that hate that woman. A lot.

I guess I wasted my vote. I don’t understand it, when Obama spoke here he drew over 10,000 people while she only had 2,000. Something is fishy here.

Troppe informazioni mar numero cento e venti cinque

1. Under what conditions would you kiss a stranger?

Under none. I don’t even kiss or hug friends. It takes me a very long time to warm up to people so that might be why I’m like that.

2. Who was the last person you sent a text message to? If you’ve never sent someone a text message, is there some reason

The last person was six months ago to my now former boss.

3. When was the last time you deliberately surprised someone?

Saturnalia/Christmas, when I got the 1.5kt diamond in a white gold setting for Keyron.

4. How often do you walk somewhere (hopefully, other than the mailbox)?

I do about two to five miles every other day. I love living in such a walkable city, everything is so close by it doesn’t make sense to own a car.

5. What were the longest and shortest durations of your romantic relationships?

The longest is my current, on it’s 15th year. My shortest, hmm, I think 3 months, but they were 3 very intensely sexual months.

Bonus (as in optional):What is missing from your life.

A confidante. Actually in reality I have several already, I’m not really missing anything.

The Providence Obama Event

Well, today was what I’d term a classic cluster fuck. I took the RIPTA bus up to the Rhode Island College campus to see Barack Obama. Since it was raining I had my umbrella with me.

Got there around 9:45AM, there were about 100 people in line by then. About 10:45AM the Fire Marshall makes the announcement that no umbrellas will be allowed into the venue. He suggests we return them to cars and I asked him what does one without a vehicle do with theirs. He told me that entrance would be prohibited so I left.

I go back to the bus stop for the 11:05AM bus except it never comes. Wait for the 11:39AM bus, it never comes. By this time there are a dozen other people waiting for the bus.

I decide I’ll walk, it’s less than 5 miles and I can handle distances like that. As I get down the hill from the RIC campus I see two of Providence’s Finest directing traffic. I ask the one cop if he’s re-directed buses and of course he says yes he has. I yelled at him that maybe one of them should let the dozen people at the Roberts building know about that and trudged on.

Did I mention that we got another slushie? By the time I got home my shoes and socks were soaked. And I didn’t get to see Obama speak.

What irks me is the retarded nature of RI’s fire code. After the Station fire where 100 people died and 200+ were injured and disfigured our kneejerk legislature modified the fire code and made it more stringent. I’ve written about that before so I don’t need to go into it here. I will however state once again that the laws on the books at the time of the fire were adequate. If they had been enforced we may never have seen such a catastrophic event.
