Career Meltdown – He haz it.

You want to see someone’s “career” (and I use that in the most loose terms possible) getting ready to self destruct?

Son’s Messy Room Leads to Dad’s 911 Call

28-year-old threw plate of food, made fist when told to clean up

BEDFORD, Ohio – An Ohio man who argued with his grown son over a messy bedroom says he overreacted when he called 911.

Andrew Mizsak called authorities Thursday after his 28-year-old son — who’s a school board member in the Cleveland suburb of Bedford — threw a plate of food across the kitchen table and made a fist at him when told to clean his room.

The son, also named Andrew, lives in a room in his parents’ basement.

The father declined to press charges and told police he doesn’t want to ruin his son’s political career.

The son, who also works as a political consultant, says he’s lucky to be living in the house rent free. He also promises to keep his room clean.


Let’s see:

  • “Political consultant” – Check
  • Lives at home (rent free) – Check
  • School Board member – Check
  • 28 and living at home rent free – Check
  • Can’t keep his room neat – Check
  • Threw a plate of food at his father and threatens him – Check
  • Police Called and report (public document) filed – Check

Yep – that is the sound of a “political career” melting down. Somehow I don’t expect him to win another election. Instead, I see a career as a Wal-Mart Greeter in his future.

Hell, at this point, I could probably win an election against him.

Well, it is official.

The RNC has officially gone bonkers now.

RNC chief: Gay marriage will burden small business

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090516/ap_on_bi_ge/us_steele_republicans

SAVANNAH, Ga. – Republicans can reach a broader base by recasting gay marriage as an issue that could dent pocketbooks as small businesses spend more on health care and other benefits, GOP Chairman Michael Steele said Saturday.

Steele said that was just an example of how the party can retool its message to appeal to young voters and minorities without sacrificing core conservative principles. Steele said he used the argument weeks ago while chatting on a flight with a college student who described herself as fiscally conservative but socially liberal on issues like gay marriage.

“Now all of a sudden I’ve got someone who wasn’t a spouse before, that I had no responsibility for, who is now getting claimed as a spouse that I now have financial responsibility for,” Steele told Republicans at the state convention in traditionally conservative Georgia. “So how do I pay for that? Who pays for that? You just cost me money.”

Read the rest of the article here.

**************

So I guess this means that insurance for straight couples is free since it only costs money to insure gay couples.

I just love the claim that having to recognize gay couples would hurt small business – because we know that there are so many more gays out there than straight people.

Right now the small businesses are getting a free ride, but if “Teh Gheys” are allowed to get married, it will butt-rape the poor innocent small business owners.

GAH

I’m a geek / nerd / dork / whatever.

I just named off the four nucleotides that make up the two base pairs of DNA and yes, I kept in mind that uracil replaces thymine when doing RNA transcription.

Without having to think about it.

And how does this give me skills with computers?

Because I got rather busy on Friday

One thing about getting older

When you get tired, you start forgetting things.

Like the fact that I forgot to take out the trash this morning as I was leaving for work.

Trash FAIL.

But I can get all nostalgic about musicians I listened to when I was in high school. And now, 25+ years later, they are re-recording and re-releasing their music.

So – you get Nena feat. Nena (I swear, she has a painting in the back of her closet – either that or she is functionally immortal)
