Liberal Thoughts

I consider myself neither a Liberal nor a Conservative, though I share views with both parties. Personally, I feel that anyone who labels him/herself a "Liberal," a "Conservate," a "Democrat," or whatever, has not done much thinking.

It looks like the Conservatives will win another minority, which probably says more about the disaster that used to be known as the Liberals than anything else.

I'm not a fan of Dion or the Liberals, but if they want to win, they should follow this one piece of advice: make gas prices an issue! I'm amazed that no leader, except maybe Jack Layton, has even mentioned the insane and exponential rise in gas prices, not to mention the obvious gouging that is going on. The Liberals will win many votes if Dion only says "if you vote for us, you will pay less at the pumps." It's that simple.

Pictorial Goodies

I've been blogging less and less lately owing to my increasingly busy schedule. On top of the thesis, I teach now, so I barely have time to do anything else.
Instead of the blog, I find my self (I never thought I'd say this) on facebook more. It's just easier.

Here are some funny pics I found this morning. Neither of them are NSFW, though the latter is very suggestive and very wrong. 1 & 2

Res Ipsa Loquitur

I'm back from the T-dot feeling somewhat refreshed, getting ready to teach for the first time on Monday.

In the meantime, this is one of the most disgusting yet family friendly pictures I've ever seen in my life

These are Krispy Kreme Bacon Cheesburgers. I'm not one to shy away from unhealthy, tasty food (I like cheesburgers and krispy kreme donuts), but I can't even look at this pic without feeling sick.
