I'm Tired, and They're Stupid

My 3 loyal readers have probably been wondering why I dropped off the face of the earth. It started innocently enough. Things picked up at work; I decided to focus on taking care of neglected areas of my life. I got lazy and used to not blogging, and once I'm in a pattern...

Work also started to get busy on top of really starting to suck, and in post-K New Orleans, it doesn't take much for me to give into the urge to say: fuck it. i'm tired. i'm just done! stick a fork in me.

There's been lots I've wanted to say. God knows there's no shortage of absurdity to comment on around here -- just haven't had the time or energy. Fortunately, all my thoughts can be summed up into what may just end up being my mantra: I'M TIRED; AND THEY'RE STUPID!

I'm also real fuckin' tired of "The Stupid." You know, our legislators, leaders, etc... I can't believe some of the shit they've proposed in the legislature, like raising auto insurance rates -- because we're not paying enough insurance. But then again maybe that bill sponsor was on to something; since more and more people will be living in their cars while waiting on Road Home payouts, maybe we should pay more to cover the belongings we'll be hauling around.

The haggling over using Road Home money to pay flood only or wind damage too? If this ain't another cheap stalling tactic, then I'm starting a petition to amend the city charter so Nagin can run again.

A bill to add about 25cents tax per beer to fund building a mental health hospital in St. Tammany? First, why the tax? it's exorbitant AND shouldn't such an emergency need be eligible for coverage under ohh i don't know...emergency funds or part of the $3 bill+ surplus? Second, if the hospital is an urgent need for the New Orleans area since the city lost so many psych beds, has it occurred to anyone to fucking build one in New Orleans?!?

Somebody needs to tell these folks that they're doing a horrible job at hiding how badly they want this city to change.

This pales in comparison to prior posts, but i figured maybe posting any thing might get me back into posting more often.

Yeah, I missed you too, but living life is more important than blogging about life, ya know?

I'm tired, too, and the idiots seem to be getting stupider. Stopping to breathe is always a good thing.
