Today was tax day in America. And I wrote a Large Check. Biggest one in my life to the U.S. Treasury. It was enough to (almost) make me become a Tea party member, where Tea stands for Taxed Enough Already.
And then they flew shuttle Discovery up to Washington so they could put it in a museum next to Dulles. I could have gone outside and and watched it fly overhead, but I expect working spaceships to be used as tools, not become museum pieces. I'm looking forward to April 30th and the launch of SpaceX's Dragon to the ISS. Go SpaceX!
And then finally is the story of Ted Nugent and his comments about the Obama administration. I love Ted, going back to his rocker days. And then, of course, there were the prissy Democrats who got all bent out of shape over what Ted said (see video below). And the Secret Service, which is investigating "any threats against the President." The same Secret Service that got caught with their dicks out of their pants in Columbia, embarrassing the President. So this is the Secret Service's way of trying to prove they're still competent and to draw attention away from their bad behavior. My damn tax dollars at work, eh?
