The End of Week Rants of the Insane

SO THIS IS FREEDOM:

So we are just a few days away from Passover, holiday of freedom - you know, the one where you either a) chain yourself to your house to cook, clean and overpay for food for 3 weeks BEFORE you spend a week not eating anything that can be digested or b) you chain yourself to debt by spending 20-40 k's to take your family to a place where you eat non-stop and have to be dressed to kill at all times (meaning you've also blown your entire year's clothing budget on 8 days).

Ah Freedom.


DEMOCRACY IN ACTION:

In the neighborhood I used to live they sold an unused public school to a real estate developer who was going to partner with a big medical provider to bring a huge clinic to the area.  The people of the area stood up and voted it down 2 to 1.

Generally, I wouldn't find this interesting at all, but the way it was described to me, this was a true example of a grassroots build-up which stopped a supposedly "done deal". 

There is something to be said for seeing democracy work, as opposed to watching politicians on both sides destroy the true meaning of it.


HOCKEY PLAYERS, PER CAPITA, ARE THE CUTEST ATHLETES IN PROFESSIONAL SPORTS (WITH THE POSSIBLE EXPLANATION OF CERTAIN BRITISH SOCCER PLAYERS)

No explanation needed.


ENJOY WINTER, SUCKERS

Me and the Mr. are joining his family in warm Miami for the first half of Pesach.  Still unsure about the second half.  I would say there is a fair possibility that the last days will be spent with the Wicked Witch of the South Shore. 

So who is the sucker, again?

Happy Passover to all.

  1. Sad. That is true democracy. Majority stripping the minority of their rights. That is exactly why the US is a republic and not a democracy. The rights of the individual can never be trampled on! If people have an issue with the clinic let them not use it. It will go out of business.
