Crazy Idea

So I have a crazy idea and I think I've talked about it before, but I want to bring it up again. This is 2010, an election year. Specifically, if you know anything about how the house of representatives works, which you probably don't because many americans are totally ignorant of the American political system, all the member are up for re-election. That is ever 2 years all the members of the house are re-elected. Now this is what I want you to do. Its pretty simple, but really far out there, as very few people advocate this. Don't re-elect any incumbent represntatives. An incumbent is the person who currently holds the seat for their state. That is don't vote for the person who currently holds the seats. I want all 435 members of the house to be brand spanking new. I think we need to shake up the whole political system.

Biggest Loser: Why Fatties are Funny

Ok, so for lack of even trying to sound professional at all. Fat people, especially the obese and morbidly obese are hilarious. I should know, I am pretty damn fat. That's besides the point. I was watching the Biggest Loser on NBC, and this show is SO damn stupid. I mean I know, America is fat country. I live in Texas, there are a lot of fat people here, but is televising our problem really helping? I mean maybe 1 out of a 1000 viewers or hell one out of 10000 viewers will be motivated to do something, but overall, I doubt it makes a difference. These people are hilarious. I mean they compete to lose weight, but in the end, they'll probably just gain it all back. Anyway I think its hilarious that they take it so seriously. I would never do that. I am a content fatty. Although everyone probably knows I have had my own struggles with weight loss, but go on TV? No thanks.

2010

I am not sure what's going on here, but Its been well over a month since my last post. Sorry guys. Not much new here. Living with the in-laws, and its okay. I mean I still gripe and complain, but wouldn't you if you shared a three bedroom 1 bath house with 7 other people? In case your wondering, the dining room is now a bedroom. However not all is bleak as it would seem. Those bank types finally got back to me and said, hey you actually improved your credit. As though somehow there should be surprise that things were paid off on time, but that's beside the point. Although I do wonder why we paid of our bedroom furniture which is sitting in storage. Of course I am sure it had something to do with the 24% interest rate that would've kicked in. Oh well. Anyway now we're looking at houses again, albeit in the Whitehouse area. I don't really have a problem with Whitehouse, even though I joke around, but I sometimes feel that area is snobbish or other times just distasteful, because although most of the city is zoned well, sometimes you see a trailer next to a home or things like that. Of course at this point we've been living at the in-laws for a good 6 months. Longer than either of us had planned, we were hoping to celebrate Christmas in our new home. I sometimes feel bad that I couldn't make this happen sooner and wish I could have done something else, but I don't know what I would've done differently. Of course I just really want my wife to be happy. She deserves a home all her own, even if the in-laws will be with us for a while. Yeah, basically because we've been with them a while and they're in a rent house, which won't be a rent house much longer, we're going to let them stay with us for a while, upwards of a year, but hopefully this will allow us to save money, pay of more debts and after they leave upgrade the house. Honestly I think we should be a little thankful for this opportunity, because beggars can't be choosers. However I for one am already looking forward to them never living with us, or hopefully even near us, ever again. I mean a nice 1 to 2 hour drive would be great. The job is going well. Although my commute will go from 15 minutes to 50 minutes. Another reason I am not looking forward to the move, but its only fair since my wife had to drive about the same to get her current job. Things are getting better that is all that really matters...
