Land of Sunshine

Does life seem worthwhile to you?


Yes, hmm hmm, now for the next question --
Does emotional music have quite an effect on you?
Do you feel sometimes like age is against you?
Sing and rejoice and sing and rejoice
Yes, hmm hmm, that's interesting.
But tell me, do you often sing or whistle just for fun?
Do you feel sometimes like age is against you?
I, I can help -- I can help you -- I can help you help yourself!

Does life seem worthwhile to you?

Thanks very much, randal. Now I don't know whether to crawl under my blankets for the rest of my lifetime or commit suicide, like right now.

Funny how Clinton, Obama and McCain were all absent for the FISA vote. Not.

Well, at least my "other" senator, Schumer, did the right thing. As our did next door neighbor Chris Dodd our downstairs neighbors Melendez and Lautenberg.

Kucinich, I sincerely hope, will go down in history as a very brave and distinguished teller of the truth.

In the meantime, I'm stocking up on canned goods.

AND finally feeling glad that I made the decision a year or so ago to get out of Brooklyn because I believe that the next Category 5 hurricane is going to take out Long Island, Queens, Brooklyn and submerge the entire perimeter of Manhattan. OVER and ABOVE the submergence (is that a word) that's already happening due to the rising sea levels.

Well, all that, and more. Assuming, of course, I don't commit suicide (thank you very much), because man, life is NOT worth living.

But, thanks again, bro !!!! Your cheerful posts are, well, cheery.

I'm not buying unless it's from Ronco. Ron Popeil for president!

DivaJood said...

What's age got to do with it, sonny? Hmmm?

Listen, I personally think the death penalty for child rapists is too good for them. They are lower than low, more evil than... no, scratch that. Nobody is more evil than Cheney.

My biggest problem with Obama is that he is a Chicago White Sox fan.

okjimm said...

gees.....that's a lotta info for a saturday.....I'll take a shower and then think it all over.....over a beer.

oh, wowsers Anita

//life is NOT worth living.//

Sure it is...I found the secret is NOT wearing underwear on weekends..... and never go biking wearing my four inch heels ;)

Suzi Riot said...

Well, aren't we all just a jolly lot. I might have to change my blog background to black again.

Randal Graves said...

anita, Kucinich will certainly not go down in history as that because he has funny hair and shoulders you can't land a 747 on.

I'm glad I could contribute to the misery.

Hey, you're supposed to laugh, laugh, damn you!

dr. zaius, he's get my vote! Plus Weird Al's!

diva, Cheney's so evil, he made Hitler's trains not run on time!

Bartman! Bartman! Yeah, wrong team, but right city!

okjimm, four-inch heels? Should we start calling you Huggy Bear?

suzi, you should, for your place is far too bubbly for my tastes. You should try being a little bit more morose now and then and dump the happy fun candy routine.

American Hill BIlly said...

I like Kucinich. I think he's one of the good guys; instead of one of tha' goo' ole' boys. They seem to get shot in the face. By Darth Cheney!!

Peace and Freedom

susan said...

Why is it the mainstream media never seems to question what it is that McCain is 'experienced' in as opposed to Obama's lack thereof?

If I weren't still Canadian I'd vote for Kucinich whether he's on the ballot or not.. yeah, I know - a FAT LOT OF GOOD THAT WILL DO!

Okay, it's hot today so I'm putting on my 4" stilettoes and going for a 2000 mile bike ride to okjimm's for a beer. I should be passing through Cleveland around 4:00 and I'll expect company.

Randal Graves said...

AHB, remember though, it was that other guy's fault for getting in the way of that buckshot. Cheney can do no wrong!

susan, oh, that bastard has experience alright. Just not the right kind. If you're talking 4am, then I'll be sleeping. No, I should be up, polishing riding shoes with the 4" heels. Très sexy.

Anita said...

how can i laugh, when we're all going to hell in a handbasket? tell me that, dr. graves!!!

well, hmmm. let me think about this for a moment. come to think of it, the idea of you and okjimm in your stiletto's is actually pretty hilarious.

ahhh. i feel much better now!

okjimm said...

//should be passing through Cleveland //

NO, NO...if you get to have gone too far......LEFT at Chicago....LEFT....WISCONSIN!!boy& can take the girl outa Canada, but it sure is tough to take the Canada outa the girl.... :)

Beach Bum said...

If it happens, it raises the prospect of the Arctic nations being able to exploit the valuable oil and mineral deposits below these a bed which have until now been impossible to extract because of the thick sea ice above.

Gore might as well hang it up on saving the planet. Exxon and all the other energy companies are absolutely cumming in their expensive suits over drilling for oil in the arctic region.

Liberality said...

I am very jealous that you can vote for Kucinich and we can not. At least, I don't think he'll be on our ballet. Fuck it, I'm writing his name in and that's that...

susan said...

I stopped off at a Quik & Qweezy for a beer and a burger.. and plugged in the laptop. No damn wifi back in those mountain passes but there's still a shitload of trucks and RV's hauling boats. I almost split a nail and my thong got a bit twisted when I had to make a fast maneuver in a slipstream but I'm on my way. Did you say left at Chicago? Shit. East and west are easy because of the sun and all but that north south stuff always was confusing. I'm sure randal's gonna get there before me but save some beer. I'll need it for the ride back to work on Monday. Damn smartass Murkans.

Christopher said...

Obama needs to come out swinging against Telecom Immunity and tone down his rhetoric on Iran.

If he doesn't do this, his sprint to the right may wind up taking him over to the dark side and pandering to the GOP is what sunk Hillary Clinton with the Netroots.

Anita said...

"If he doesn't do this, his sprint to the right may wind up taking him over to the dark side and pandering to the GOP is what sunk Hillary Clinton with the Netroots."

Christopher is EXACTLY right.

Mauigirl said...

I love Kucinich - always agreed most with him.

I am proud to see that both of my senators voted "nay" on the FISA bill - Lautenberg and Menendez. Lautenberg is so old he makes McCain look like a kid but he sticks to his principles!

I must say, Randal, that was a depressing bunch of links!

FranIAm said...

In a word, or three really...

Have a great day!!! :-)

Tom Harper said...

Being buried alive -- there you go. That'll give those whiny terrorists something to whimper about. Waterboarding will be the least of their worries.

Remember, every one of those Islamofascist terrorists wants to kill us. If we bury them alive, they won't be able to. Can we get John Yoo to run for president? He's much tougher than that wimpy McCain.

Randal Graves said...

anita, I'm not a doctor, I only play one on the internets.

Hilarious? Try disturbing! I'm too sexy for stilettos.

okjimm, I'm sick of you lefty loons and your dog-whistle politics!

BB, and then with Hansen coming out and saying we have even less time than we thought. Yeah, it's only one guy, but I'm not an optimist. Nothing on a grand scale will be done, then it'll be teeth gnashing and knuckle cracking time.

liberality, perhaps we should rethink this human cloning deal and make a copies of Dennis.

susan, don't get your thong twisted, we'll save you some of the best American beer. Busch light, yum!

christopher, I'm starting to wonder if Bob Shrum isn't whispering in his ear from the shadows. He doesn't need to do all this centrist bullshit to win.

mauigirl, wait. Older than McCain? Really? And I aim to please, but no one commenting on the mighty Faith No More? Heathens.

fran, and not the good kind!

tom, hey, he never suggested that. What was the one from one of the last batches of torture hearing, crushing testicles?

Wait, wimpy McCain? Why do you and Wes Clark hate the military?

Dusty said...

Well, piss, fuck, shit, and all the rest of them thar words..It used to be nice to live in the good ole US of its a gigantic pain in the ass..

Because people got complacent and didn't pay attention to the fuckwits in office and what they were pulling.

Its gonna stay that way until the majority of Americans wake the fuck up. And I ain't so sure that will happen anytime soon.

I voted for Kucinich here in Cali during the primary..him, Dodd and Feingold are the only congress critters I really trust and listen to.
