Have you ever wondered

If you have ever asked yourself the question "How do I be more annoying" read on and soon you will have an answer.

Step one is to generally be obnoxious. Most everyone in the world has a pet peeve, just do something which at one time annoyed someone and chances are that you wil again annoy someone.

Pick your nose and flick it.

Fart in an enclosed space.

Drive sloppily, putting the lives of others in danger.

Talk loudly when there is no need to.

Lie about most everything you talk about.

Install an ultra-sensitive car alarm on your vehicle... one so sensitive it goes off when another car drives by.

Now some of those listed are my pet peeves, some are things I inadvertantly do in the course of a day. Some are just things that are considered common courtesy not to do.

Don't use money foolishly. More importantly don't use taxpayer's money foolishly. Take for instance that our government pays for Rush Limbaugh's heaping box full of shit that he calls a talk show to air on Armed Forces radio. I am sooooo sure that's what our soldiers, mostly twenty-something national guardsmen, want to hear while they fight off dehydration, squalid living conditions and daily attacks all for the sake of a war started on false intelligence.

As a taxpayer, one who has a friend who is preparing for duty in Iraq, I am beyond appalled that our seemingly corrupt government has the gall to use tax money to broadcast one man's opinion to not only our troops but citizens of the countries where they are stationed. Why? I have no knowledge of how much money was exchanged to make this happen or when it began but it either needs to be balanced with an equal amount of airtime from someone with an opposing viewpoint or needs to be pulled altogether. Personally, I am leaning toward the second option in order to use our tax funds for something more worthwhile than a block of time filled with one man's often untrue ranting.

Keep in mind too, that next Friday (June 25th) marks the release of Fahrenheit 9/11. Michael Moore's film which is likely to stir up its fair share of controversy is a breath of fresh air and I am going to make it a point to see it. I just hope that it makes it to the theaters in all of its glory as some ultra-conservative individuals are trying to water the film down so it inflicts very little damage to Bush's re-election hopes.

It is also sad that, in trying to get re-elected, Bush is using images of Ronald Reagan in anti-Kerry attack ads. I was too young to remember Reagan but when anyone dies, I feel it is simply wrong to use that person's image for your own gain.

Lastly, be sure to sign the pledge to see Fahrenheit 9/11 on its opening weekend - wear something blue, too.

More tomorrow as I wind down toward the approaching weekend.
