Good Children get their allowance

I was planning on skipping the political stuff for a while. Ever since the Republicans were barely able to squeeze out a victory in the last election, with a war going on and a pitiful excuse for a challenger, I knew that there was no way they'd be elected again.
But when I saw this analysis in the WSJ and then again in the NYpost, I figured I'd pass it along.

11 Stitches

I thought I switched from Karate to Aikido so I wouldn't get kicked in the head!

Wednesday night, we were doing a simple drill. I was bringing the newest guy at the school to the ground with a kind of pressure point technique. He flipped forward into a roll and his heel hit my head in a glancing blow.

Wierdest thing I've ever seen. He barely hit me, but for some reason it split the skin wide open.

After he hit me, I thought nothing of it. Then I saw a drop of blood fall. When I raised my hand towards my head, my upturned palm got to about my shoulder when a stream of blood poured into it. I cupped both my hands, trying to prevent the blood from getting on the white canvas.
My sensei rushed over and guided me off the mat and over to some paper towels. We applied direct pressure. The bleeding stopped pretty quickly. We all agreed that stitches were necessary, since I didn't want a huge scar on my forehead. I didn't trust anybody there to do a decent job of it, (They offered) so I changed clothes and drove myself to the ER.

This is the same ER that I went to after my car wreck. Once again, the ER was crowded. Once again, there were three white people with obvious injuries: Me, a woman with her hand wrapped in a bloody towel, and a man holding his left arm, wincing in pain. The rest of the ER was filled with latinos with, as far as I could tell, no signs of injury or illness. Call me a racist or whatever, I just calls 'em as I sees 'em. Why do these folks hang out at the ER? Help me out here.

I spent a total of three hours at the hospital for five minutes worth of stitching, and I was on the "FAST TRACK". I almost didn't make the fast track. When they first took me in, they took my blood pressure and it was reading high, something like 160 over 110 with a pulse of 87. They wanted to put me in a room where they could monitor my blood pressure the whole time. I explained that I was right in the middle of working out when I got hit, then immediately drove there. My BP is usually pretty close to 120 over 80. After arguing with the woman, plus they had no free beds (gracias, amigos), she agreed to keep me in the "FAST TRACK" section. I got out of there around midnight. One interesting thing is that, after the doctor stitched me up, he gave me the utencils that he used, saying, "We're supposed to throw these out, but the only thing that's gotten on them is your blood, so take them. They are useful in your tacklebox"

Master Debators

Ok, I just wanted to use that title for a post.

I don't generally watch debates. I also don't pay attention to the political ads prior to an election. I find that anyone who bases their voting on these is woefully uninformed. You have to look deeper into a candidate's history than the dog and pony show, that is an election.
Debates are basically just infomercials for both candidates. They rarely answer any questions, except to sidestep it and launch into their talking points.

You know how, in football, whenever there is a big dogpile of players onto the ball? Nobody can tell who has posession, but both teams will start excitedly pointing in their direction to make it seem like they have somehow determined that their team has posession of the ball. This is done in the belief that it will somehow sway the refs into thinking with them.

That's how I see the debates. Both sides will 'commentate' to death that their candidate won the debate. This is especially the case when, like last night, there was no clear winner.
