So what are y'all doing on the last day of life as we know it?

I'll go and open up my store as usual. My locals will come and go as they buy their chews, pop, smokes, the odd bag of chips and half gallons of milk. I'm sure there will be some comments about the events of this day.

The past few days I've been pondering the weirdness of all this, on a personal level.
3 weeks ago I got a notice from AIG, letting me know that they would be canceling my car insurance. The letter explained that they would no longer be insuring people with only one car. A week later AIG was all over the financial news. I almost felt personally responsible.

Then there was the collapse of Wa Mu. Wa Mu is one of 3 credit cards I have. I liked it because of the delightfully low interest on it (something like 7 percent) I used it rarely, but wisely. My next favorite was my Chase card, but it had a 9 percent rate and a modest limit. Funny how Chase ate Wa Mu. Now my question is: What happens with my Wa Mu card? And if it transforms into a Chase card, will I still have the bitchen interest rate or will it bump up to my other Chase card rate? (but really, after today will it really matter?)

And now,we have Citi getting weird. Again, that is my 3rd card I own. I NEVER use that one. But out of the 3 cards-that one has the most insane limit. 25,000 bucks!
But for reason I don't fully understand it carries a obscene rate: 23%. I've never been late on it, so it's not a penalty rate. So naturally, I don't use it. 3 times I have called them and threatened to cancel the card and all 3 times they have begged me not to and as a carrot they lower the rate on it, one time to 3 PERCENT! But that only lasts for about 3 months and then they jack it right back up. Can't figure it out. Maybe they're in trouble because I never use it.

Naw. We're in this mess because the crapweasels in congress have been planning this for years. Back when they greenlighted banks to become investment houses and investment houses to become banks was when I got worried...oh, yeah...that's a GREAT IDEA!

Missouri Prosecutors, Sheriffs 'Target Anyone Who Lies' About Barack Obama

I had to come out of my self imposed hibernation to bring this to everyone's attention:

Missouri Prosecutors, Sheriffs 'Target Anyone Who Lies' About Barack Obama

A St. Louis television station reports — their words — "The Barack Obama campaign is asking Missouri law enforcement to target anyone who lies or runs a misleading TV ad during the presidential campaign."

Prosecutors and sheriffs from across Missouri are joining "The Barack Obama Truth Squad."

They mention Jennifer Joyce, St. Louis Circuit Attorney and Bob McCullough, prosecutor for St. Louis County in Missouri.

The reporter says, "They will be reminding voters that Barack Obama is a Christian who wants to cut taxes for anyone making less than $250,000 a year."

While the report never quite comes out and says that anyone running an ad saying those things would be subject to prosecution, that certainly is the message implied.
( More at National Review, Online)

I dare these pinheaded, mind numbed squints whose salaries are paid BY US, the citizens of the grand state of Missouri, the "Show Me" state, to just try that crap around here...where all the normal people live.
And now on to my political ad:

Barry Husein Obama is a big fat poopyhead!
He is a coward, a Marxist, and as much a "christian" as my dog.
Anyone who buys into his tripe is an ig'nert booger eatin' moron.
Again, I repeat: Obama is a big fat lying whining MUSLIM by decent poopyhead.

"I'm WTR, and I approve this message."


Oh, that's right...these pansies won't dare go south of the I-44 corridor- we have all the guns here!

Our Gov. has released a scathing, no holds barred statement concerning the shinanigans: (Clare? Are ya ears burnin'??!!)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Saturday, September 27, 2008 Contact: Jessica Robinson, 573-751-0290 Gov. Blunt Statement on Obama Campaign’s Abusive Use of Missouri Law Enforcement

Gov. Blunt Statement on Obama Campaign’s Abusive Use of Missouri Law Enforcement

JEFFERSON CITY - Gov. Matt Blunt today issued the following statement on news reports that have exposed plans by U.S. Senator Barack Obama to use Missouri law enforcement to threaten and intimidate his critics.

“St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch, St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer, and Obama and the leader of his Missouri campaign Senator Claire McCaskill have attached the stench of police state tactics to the Obama-Biden campaign.

“What Senator Obama and his helpers are doing is scandalous beyond words, the party that claims to be the party of Thomas Jefferson is abusing the justice system and offices of public trust to silence political criticism with threats of prosecution and criminal punishment.

“This abuse of the law for intimidation insults the most sacred principles and ideals of Jefferson. I can think of nothing more offensive to Jefferson’s thinking than using the power of the state to deprive Americans of their civil rights. The only conceivable purpose of Messrs. McCulloch, Obama and the others is to frighten people away from expressing themselves, to chill free and open debate, to suppress support and donations to conservative organizations targeted by this anti-civil rights, to strangle criticism of Mr. Obama, to suppress ads about his support of higher taxes, and to choke out criticism on television, radio, the Internet, blogs, e-mail and daily conversation about the election.

“Barack Obama needs to grow up. Leftist blogs and others in the press constantly say false things about me and my family. Usually, we ignore false and scurrilous accusations because the purveyors have no credibility. When necessary, we refute them. Enlisting Missouri law enforcement to intimidate people and kill free debate is reminiscent of the Sedition Acts - not a free society.”

Spread the word, y'all!
