Political Lomcevak (Tumbling the Liberal Mindset)
Wednesday, July 09, 2003
I am out of town until the 15th, off to a Convention to meet folks who will hopefully be looking for an aviation attorney in the near future. Until then, keep your fingers crossed for the Iranian people. You know the ones being prosecuted and oppressed by a fanatical religious government. Sort of what the left complains about in this country. Except in this case, the media is stone cold silent on this issue.

Since everyone else is doing it, and I want to fit in. I too will answer the questions.
1. Do you have a personal hero? If so, who is it?
Hmmmm. My father is possibly my personal hero at this point.
2. What is your favorite book of all time and what made it so fucking good?
I have more then one favorite book. "The Closing of the American Mind" by Allan Bloom is a favorite, as is "The History of the American Speaking People" by Churchill. In the end, it's tough to think of a favorite book, since each contains differing elements that make it enjoyable
3. What does “diversity” mean to you?
It is a codeword used mostly by Liberals to justify the continued use of Affirmative Action.
4. What is the wildest thing you’ve ever done?
Caught a 70Lb Roosterfish off a beach in Mexico. Tumbled an aircraft. Flat Spun an Aircraft.
5. Do you regret doing it?
6. Can you drive a stick shift?
Dad wouldn't teach me in an automatic
7. What’s the highest speed you ever traveled in a car?
Shhhhhh. 138mph at 3am. I don't know if my speedo was correct, but it felt fast. I have gone faster on a bike
8. Were you driving, or riding at the time?
9. Which is better: snakes or spiders?
Both are cool, but snakes may have the edge. Not furry
10. What is the most disgusting thing you ever ate?
Mompani Worms. Don't ask.
11. Have you ever shit your pants? Be HONEST!
Once, must have been 8.
12. Was losing your virginity an enjoyable experience?
Yes, although it was a short experience.
13. Should oral sex be outlawed or encouraged?
Inside or outside of marriage?
14. Name one man with a fine ass.
Mel Gibson. I am secure enough to say that.
15. Do you watch golf on television? If not, will you iron my shirts?
Only the Masters, sometimes.
16. Who is Martha Burk?
The supposed feminist who tried to rally the country to boycott Augusta (Where the Masters is held) because they do not allow female members.
17. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
Nothing really, I am quite happy with who I am.
18. Do you eat raw oysters?
I have at one point.
19. Are you claustrophobic?
Not severely, but have been in very tight situations and felt the sensation.
20. If you rode a motorcycle, would you wear a helmet even if the law said you didn‘t have to?
90% of the time I would. There are a few times when I would not. For instance, there are times when it is fun just to cruise the beaches with your wind in your hair.
21. Name five great Presidents.
Reagan, Washington, Lincoln, Coolidge, Eisenhower.
22. Name three shitty Presidents.
Carter, Lyndon Johnson, Clinton. (Can't I have more?)
23. Now call me fanny and slap my ass. Just kidding.
Fanny! No slapping though.
24. This is the 4th of July. Did you set off any fireworks?
Hah. I live in a little Liberal town in California where all types of fun is outlawed. Expressly verboten are fireworks.
25. If you could have dinner and conversation with anyone in the history of the planet, who would you choose?
Winston Spencer Churchill. No doubt about it.

The UN, once again, provides us with a little comic relief. The UN, that bunch of social experimenters, the group that wants every nation on earth to respect the right of the workers to unionize (too many examples of this to list), does not want its workers to do the same.
I love this line.
"The union, in existence for more than 50 years, has a history of confrontation with U.N. management."
Unions are a pain in the ass? You don't say? How come the enlightened UN management has a problem with their Union? Don't you think they would get along? Amazing.
And this is glorious too.
" The union believes that the U.N. move is an attempt to save money because with the union office closed, it will be easier to hire more temporary and contract employees as the world body proceeds with a $1 billion plan to renovate the headquarters complex."
That's just rich. The UN is breaking the Union to save money. Possibly United and American airlines should take notes. Possibly the State of California should take notes. Actually there are many industries that would like to do this. However, the UN, and the media would have a conniption fit, the likes of which you will never see here.
