Erie County Idiocy ... (subtitled: Why do I watch the news?)

Caution: High use of vulgarity present




Ever notice that the things you love the most ... you also despise? Or is it just me?

I'm watching the news - local news on Channel 2 - the only station I can stomach. And frequently, even that's too much.

Anyway, they're talking about Joel Giambria wanting a county manager ... to the tune of $170,000 a year. WHILE KEEPING HIS LAME ASS, TOO!!!
The other topic du jour is the violence at Buffalo schools. Some idiot administrator or teacher makes a comment that the kids are rioting cause programming has been cut. Are you effin kidding me? That's right Mr. Union guy, the kids are beating the shit out of each other cause they only have art on Tuesdays and Thursdays now. If you just give them their fucking art classes back, they'll go back to behaving again. The worst part of it was that the news let the comments slide. What the shit?

Many of you are familiar with my buddy Nuclear Lou Ricciuti. Tomorrow morning at around 6 a.m., he is going to be in front of the Tops on Niagara Falls Boulevard in Niagara Falls (LaSalle) playing a musical instrument. I, unfortunately, can't make it. Hopefully someone who's reading this can go and tell him I said "hey."

It's been more than a week now since I dropped out of my forum. I've kept an eye on it, but must say, I've not read every post ... nor have I missed it. I have noticed that the number of users has plummeted. It was down to 120 last time I checked. I know that Lou dropped his - and his school accounts, too. I think some others got the hint and dropped out as well. I think I'll give it a few more days as it is and then step back in and make some changes and statements. First of all, I think I have to do away with anonymous posting. It just gets too damn nasty. Second, I think users should be allowed 1 account a piece. No more. And yes, I can enforce it.

In the early part of the new year, WLVL will be unveiling a new web site and it will have a forum much like that on SL.com or the US&J web site. I'm actually quite excited about the new web site. I've been told that once it opens up, I am expected to plug IT instead of my own. Understandable. I'll gladly plug it once it's plugworthy. (I'm thinking so many bad thoughts about this last sentence). Moving on.

I created the first post in the Niagara Libertarian Group. I'm hoping that others follow suit. I'm also hoping that more people get brought along. I'd really like to start pushing the cause of limited government.

GMail added a new feature that allows you to "group" contacts and send an email to a group very easily. Very cool. GMail rocks. If you want an invite, let me know, I'll gladly do it. Google Talk could rock if they get it to do what they want it to, but right now, it's just a shell. I'm hoping they pimp it out soon. They're supposed to.

Who the fuck is "they?"

I've been amazed at some of the people I've found here on MySpace - Denis Leary - Joe Rogan - KMFDM - And it's really them. It's weird.

I gotta get Tom Christy on this thing. He'd love it.

We have Dish Network. Love it. LOVE IT!!! But we only have it on one TV - downstairs. I'm thinking we should get another reciever and put it on the TV upstairs. Our bedroom is easier to keep warm and after the kids go to bed, we could go upstairs and watch TV there. The cost of the extra reciever would be paid for by the savings on heat. It's friggin X-Pen-Sive to heat this house. *sigh*

Alright, I've blogged enough. Later skaters.
