Ponderables...

How much do they pay people to get on television and say things like "I have genital herpes"? And I wonder how that impacts that particular actors love-life after that? Granted, the person standing behind them that gets to say "And I don't" must be giggling like a school girl off-camera. I know I would.

And who in the hell has $499 a month with $3,999 down to lease a frickin' car for three years? I don't care if you can talk to the car like Rosie from The Jetsons. Tell you what--why don't you save yourself some grief and lease my goodwill for three years? Send me $3,999 down and $499 a month (send to PayPal address jtim24@yahoo.com), and I guarantee my goodwill toward you for three years--and you needn't even fill me up with gas every week. I guessing if you have that kind of money to throw away on a car you'll never own (but have the privilege of keeping up after for three years), you won't miss sending it to me...

I also heard today that WalMart is the single biggest retailer of fire arms in the United States... I found that a bit shocking to say the least...
Jason: Hey, Baby, I'm running to WalMart to get some flower pots, dog food, a rifle, and something for dinner... What are you hungry for, and should I hunt it down on the way home?
Rich: Uh...
I imagine this conversation happens a lot more often in Alabama than New York, but I don't put it past our own Pennsylvanian mountain folk to consider this... It's probably happened in my bloodline more than once...

I'm also wondering--if the Christians Children's Fund stopped advertising on television every afternoon on the CW about how .70 cents a day can save a child's life with food, clothes, and a thorough brain-washing for Jesus, how many children would their advertising budget save alone? And just think, they wouldn't have to mail out all those photos of children either--why, the savings in postage alone will feed and clothe half a kid per picture per day! Imagine!

Just imagine...

hello jason! i agree with you on most of your new post but what is the comment on guns? it is not the guns that is the problem but the people that are holding them. you do come from a long line of good gun owners. i think we have a lot more good gun owners than we hear about since we only hear about the bad people with guns who really are not the gun owners. i think this country is heading down a road that will be taking away our freedoms more than teaching us how to handle our freedoms. and it shouldn't be just a book learning thing but a hands on learning also. i always did better with hands own learning than a book learning way and i know there are others that are that way. i still hate reading books that are just filled with facts. give me a story to go with it. :) maybe you didn't mean anything by the gun thing but like anything we have the people who don't like guns but think its ok to let the kids have all the education on sex and let them choose to have sex if they want to but NO don't teach them how to handle a gun and what you can do with a gun that is not bad. both guns and sex need education and both can have bad things that can happen with no education. maybe we should make anybody who buys a gun should take lessons on gun saftey. i am sure wal mart can afford to pay for it. the genital herpes ad is why we have high prices on the meds and the people who don't have any health coverage can't afford it since we are spending the money on tv time. if we didn't spend all the money on ads maybe they would not be so expensive. sylvia told me something she takes for her bad headaches cost for only 30 pills cost like $900! that should not be! it is wrong! are the pills made of gold or something?!?!? the car ads say we should just find some richer friends to hang out with. :) but most of the people with money are not near as much fun as us redneck's. :) i know that. dad took me to some places that had people that had $'s and found out they are not as much fun and don't even shop at wal mart. other things happened also but this is getting to long and i want to get out to enjoy the FREE nice day we have. love and prayers
