Radically Inept
Thursday, February 26, 2004
  This is still in response to some emails that I can't post here, but I think the response may be entertaining:

Well, in response to both, I think I'm opting for the Gulag in Iraq or Afghanistan. At least it pays well, and maybe I'll learn a few things. Besides, it appears my options so far are DC, or the Left Coast. Both are way too expensive in my opinion, though I love northern California, and I really do like the cultural aspects of DC, i.e. the museums, symphonies, etc. But, I really hate what has happened to DC. The crime rate is so high, I mean the number of lobbyists there is so extreme, you never know who in the restaurant w/ you is in fact stealing you blind. I happen to agree w/ Franken on this one: I've only ever been robbed by rich white people, with the exception of who ever stole my jeep for a joy ride. At least, I don't think they were rich. I do think they were white, since it appears that most black youths can't drive stick, and seem to have no interest in going four wheeling in the country where the jeep was finally recovered. That might sound a little like racial profiling, but I think the stats would back me up on this one. Besides, I think on the whole the US military is a far better class of people to be associating with.

The Stern thing is a joke. Clear Channel only had him in six markets, and Infinity Broadcasting, which is going to continue to carry his show, has him in 75 markets. Poor Stern...But, you know, I think his show sucks.

As to living in a commune, or what ever, I have two friends who are developers helping me locate property in Northern GA, and western NC. I want fifty acres, ideally, and will settle for twenty if the property has water rights. So far, one is quoting me at $2200/acre in NC, and the other is quoting me $1200/acre in North East GA. The popular areas are now commanding $8-14K/acre. So, if employment does come thru, I'm locking in on something. My dream is to not have to tie in to the grid or other utilities, and to be as self sustainable as possible, though I can assure you I won't farm (goats stink!). Also, no drive way. If you don't know where it is, you don't need to drop by. I do think I'd like it better in NM or TX, because again, ideally, I'd like to be 100 miles from the nearest Wal-Mart and 200 miles from the nearest mall. And, fast food can just go to hell for all I care. Like Lori has said, once a month we leave a check under a rock by the mail box for the guy that delivers that month's groceries...Alright, but I am allowed to dream.

In contrast, the other alternative we have discussed is moving directly into one of the local towns in the metro area. The idea here is, you could walk to the grocery store, pub, restaurant, library, etc. and not have to drive (I hate driving in this city). And, it would have to be a condo or a town house because I hate having to do home maintenance on my weekends. Decatur, actually seems like a great area, but you can't touch the property for under several $100K or even higher.

And, as to military hardware being destroyed, I think you're being somewhat nearsighted and mean spirited. We have to destroy this stuff so Baby Bush can collect a sizable inheritance when Papa Bush dies and leaves his Carlyle Group holdings to his heirs. Too bad for Osama that his family was bought out (forced out) a month after 9/11.

By the way, where is Osama, anyway? The guy has to get kidney dialysis on a regular basis. How many dialysis machines are in Afghanistan and Pakistan? We just can't watch the hospitals? Oh well, I guess I'm just not CIA trained, and I'm sure they have their reasons for not watching these places.
