So, I was at the soccer game on Wednesday night.
All I have to say is that I was shocked to hear what I heard while at the game. I guess, at the same time, I am not.
In case you don’t know… making generalizations towards a group of people is not cool… it actually constitutes racism. Yeah, I said it, the ‘R’ word.
“They should be trimming my shrubs or cleaning my pool.”
“How many of these people are day laborers?”
“ICE should be out here rounding these people up.”
All I ask is that you watch what you say… take a minute and think about what you are going to say. Making a joke doesn’t make something you said ‘OK’.
Ok, that’s all for now.
Below are pictures from London’s Heathrow Airport.
The one question that comes to mind for me is… would this plot have been uncovered if 9/11 never happened? Would the UK have been on the lookout for ths sort of thing? Who knows… but I’m glad they were!
This picture makes me sad.
OH, I’M SO PISSED!
The local NBC affiliate pre-empted game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals for some stupid fire that wasn’t going to harm anyone up in Flagstaff. Almost 2 full hours, almost the first two periods! They put the game on a small split screen so we could watch it but we couldn’t hear the audio and even on my large screen tv, I couldn’t read the score. This would have never happened if it was an NBA, NFL, or MLB playoff game. Oh well, just goes to show you how much hockey doesn’t matter here in Phoenix. I wrote them a letter and here’s their retarded response…
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback regarding 12 News
coverage of the wildfire which threatened homes and forced evacuations
in Flagstaff. As keepers of the public trust, we are obligated to make
sure we are using the license granted to us by the Federal
Communications Commission to warn and inform our viewers who may be in
harm’s way in the case of a public emergency.You may not be aware of the fact that Channel 12/KPNX’s viewing area
extends far north of Flagstaff, so despite the fire not being in
Phoenix, it was in our viewing area. Therefore, it was our
responsibility to provide live coverage of the event.We regret that this impacted your viewing experience of a portion of the
NHL game and knowing the importance of the game provided a split screen
and audio option on the secondary audio program.
Many people complain, but few take time to do anything about it. Thank
you for letting us know how we can serve you better. Please know your
feedback is appreciated and will be considered in future programming

The best part of that email to me, which also shows me that it’s a form letter, is the “you may not be aware” paragraph. I went to school in Flagstaff for 4 years, of course I know that! I put in my letter to the station that I knew they owened the NBC affiliate up in Flagstaff as well and asked why they couldn’t have just piped it through that station vs making everyone in Phoenix watch the “breaking news”.
Anyway, that’s my rant for today. You know this would have never happened in Canada! The station doors would have been stormed and someone may have died! hahaha.
This is a very ingenious advertisement. I wonder where this picture was taken?
Anyone who believes that Hurricane Katrina is the result of the United States rejecting the Kyoto Protocols is retarded and can no longer be my friend. I hope no one that reads this journal believes that. They want us to believe that it’s our own fault and we deserve our fate. So they are basically saying that no hurricanes existed before Katrina and that Katrina is the strongest hurricane in recorded history, both of which are false.
Anyway, I’m very annoyed and I’m done.
WTF?! Stupid Germany. Why don’t you do us all a favor and shut the hell up.
AZ is burning up! It may actaully keep me from going up to Flagstaff for this holiday weekend! OH NO!!
Here are some pictures to give you an idea of how bad it is… this has been going on for the past 3 weeks.
