Hiking the Appalachian Trail

Gub-mint is broken, and this confessed adulterer will fix it!


Isn’t his ex wife (the chainsaw heiress) running against him?

In the American electoral process, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups: the journalists who kinda-sort of-but-not-really cover the candidates, and the looney-tunes nut cases running for office. These are their stories. (DUN DUN!)

ok wait
he twotimed a chainsaw heiress? daay-um

Well I guess that’s what brains look like… Sort of like… Lasagna… Kind of… Okay, I’ll shut up now.

have we discussed mississippi outlawing slavery. last month.

For bonus points, this showed up as an ad:


Nothing like an ad whose explicit goal is to hoover up federal student loan dollars to prop up a school that kicks out students who dissent, whines about contraception coverage, provided a huge chunk of the Shrub administration staff, and flirts with dominionism. Ugh.

TJ/ So, I’m doing my federal tax return and I’m like, “doodeedoodeedoo…where’s the box for state withholding? Oh, SHIT! Why aren’t they taking out state taxes?! OMG I am RIGHT fucked!” And I run around a bit, too scared to go to the state’s website to see what kind of shit I’m in.

A week later, I’m like, “Okay. Fine. Suck it up and look.” No state income tax. Now I understand the hiiiigh sales tax, but no state income tax.

The sun came out today.

@CaptHowdy: Apparently, Mississippi actually ratified the 13th Amendment in 1996, but forgot to send their certification to DC, until last month.

So hey, 1996! that’s not nearly so bad.

@al2o3cr: I’m getting an ad for Military Cupid, a dating site for those in our Armed Forces. I hope they’ve covered all their LGBTQ bases.

It also seems fitting for a Mark Sanford post: meet someone to take on maneuvers on the Appalachian Trail.

@Walking Still: I installed the AdBlock Plus and NoScript add-ins today to my Firefox. My life is changed – I can actually go on sfgate.com without feeling like I’m going to have a stroke from all the pop-up ads and videos. Nice clean white space. Same for the “Not the MSNBC Ad” space.

Outside online (based here in Santa Fe, right next to the REI) had a thing the other day on a guy who had a heart attack and died on the Appalachian Trail. Ironically, he told everyone he was going to Argentina to see a woman.

@JNOV: sounds like tennessee. the other day, i bought a case of busch light, a frozen pizza and a box of parmesan goldfish. the state cut themselves in for $2.34.

looks like sanford is bucking to be the next joe walsh. the burden of child support hasn’t got to him yet. but when it does he’ll be as bitter and spiteful as walsh. he desperately needs that congress salary to pay the child support. how can he work in private business and be taken seriously? his reputation alone prevents him from closing any sorta deal what so ever. once the congress return goes belly up maybe he can wrestle the boys free from mom and they can do a reality show, sanford and son(s). of course it will suck like all the rest but at least maybe dr drew can make an appearance and counsel sanford’s love addiction like the good doc did for mindy mccready:
check out doc drew’s track record. you’d be better off dosing up on mercury and getting bled out by leeches than seeing dr drew evidently.

@jwmcsame: Here in Cali, we have both state income taxes and high sales taxes. And for this we get, uh, something.

@Dodgerblue: I rarely pay sales tax. My life is food & coffee.

“Change Washington” I refuse to click play just because of that stupid title.

Is there be a more bland and meaningless political slogan? I doubt it.

Don’t talk taxes to me unless you’re paying 20% commission and motherfucking subsidiary rights. And 12% of earnings on health insurance.

But we have a spur of the AT down the road: the Long Trail. I intend to hike it any day now. Who knows what I might find. Forest Rangers come to mind. And also cowboys who must be nursed back to health after a fall. Which requires sponge baths and protein shakes.

@Tommmcatt Can’t Believe He Ate The Whole Thing: Protein is essential to health. It tastes good and it does you good.

Appalachian Accent Test: spell “Appalachian” phonetically but without all those goddamn symbols no one uses anymore.


@jwmcsame: Yeah, I think we’re at like 9%.

Doesn’t CA do something like tax clothing?

No plastic bags in Seattle! and if you need a paper sack, you have to fucking buy it! 5¢

@Benedick: clothing or the sack?

I mean, you need to wear clothes. Kids grow. Don’t tax clothes.

The bag thing? Sometimes I forget my hemp tote* and just want to buy a couple of bottles of iced tea or something because I’m thirsty and I forgot my Nalgene. GIMME A GODDAM BAG! As the actress said…

*I do not own a hemp tote.

Wow. Apology for the women of Magdalene Laundries. Give them some fucking money! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-21514044

@JNOV: you might, but I know some Asian boys that would beg to differ.

@JNOV: Really? Because they beg for a lot and shampoo isn’t mentioned at all.

Bada bing.

@Tommmcatt Can’t Believe He Ate The Whole Thing: So, if I tell you how I would respond to that bada bs if I had the time and energy, is that as good as putting like effort into my visual response? (Involves GIMP and no mouse.)

@JNOV: um, yes? Only because I have no idea what you are trying to say.

Yes has served me well so far

@Tommmcatt Can’t Believe He Ate The Whole Thing: I forgot, so you win. GIMP is Photoshop for losers. GIMP without a mouse is agony.

Do you remember this? … Well, fuck! I thought I had a flickr account! I’d GIMPed a picture of Cheyenne with a nosegay for Bene. Lost in the abyss.

God. I don’t want to deal with Pinterest. I can’t find my JNOV Flickr thing, and Instagram won’t help me. Damn.

@Tommmcatt Can’t Believe He Ate The Whole Thing: HERE! It took forever to do that.

Should have spent all the time I wasted trying to find that thing working on your surprise. Later.
