Mr. Roland Burris with Dirt on His Shoulder

Happy New Year; first blog of the year starts with a scandal...yeah I know right!

Roland Burris was appointed by the scandal plagued Governor Rod Blagojevich.  This has created an uproar within the state, the democratic party, nationally, even in my home.

It's just a weird situation.  Rod is innocent until proven guilty but to allow him to pick is risky.  What if he is found guilty?  Do we revolt Burris?

This is the scenario I have played in my head.  You have Lucifer in heaven and corruption is found in him and he is going to be removed from his seat.  Before he leaves, he appoints another demon because that was his job.  

Now I'm not calling the governor Lucifer or Satan; and I'm not calling Roland Burris a demon.  I actually like both of these guys.  However; I am saying the situation is similar to the one found in Revelation 12 (Bible class is coming in handy here).

Would God let Satan make that pick?  Different government; different beings, I know.  In this current case, because the way the government is ran; Governor Rod Blagojevich still has this power no matter how corrupt he's been and we have to go along with it; business as usual.

At worse, in my opinion, of the candidates heard on the FBI spy taps; they should not be an option; but after that if the Governor selects a well qualified man or woman; I think it should fly.  Until he is proven guilty he is signing other bills right?  Tell me what you think?

Billionaire to Soup Kitchen

Well not exactly; you see with the climate of the economy, certain billionaires around the globe took a harsh beating like many poor folks have.

This Yahoo finance article about who took the harsh hit (that are billionaires), made me think are they in the soup kitchen line for billionaires?

I don't think so.  I think they are doing just fine.  If you are a billionaire and you lost half your trappings; you are still a good sized millionaire.  You are not going to the soup kitchen.  But maybe the "oops kitchen."

Losing money is losing money.  They are getting the same gray hairs I get when I lose or can't find five dollars I misplaced.  Check out the list of the biggest billionaire losers... see if you're on it.  If you are a reader of Chicago Funnies; I can assure you are not quite a billionaire!

If you are; please write in or leave a comment and as always love donations are accepted.

Virginity Pledges Don't Work!

Teenagers who pledge to remain virgins until marriage are just as likely to have premarital sex as those who do not promise abstinence and are significantly less likely to use condoms and other forms of birth control when they do, according to a study released today.

Nike has won again in the war of what to do. "Just do it" is a popular slogan in which NIKE urges people to do predominantly when it comes to buying their shoes. However, when playing sports in there shoes, Nike urges all to 'just do it' when it comes to winning or being successful or doing what your gut is telling you.

From this study, we see since promises are always meant to be broken; promising to be abstinent till marriage does not work (at least in the western world).

And what is worse is that those who do make pledges are more likely to not use condoms and such when they do engage. This is probably because they feel like that person is going to be their husband. I have news for you, everyone is not honorable, and every one is not a thief. People break written contracts (you know...have you heard of foreclosure), so of course they will break verbal agreements.

In serious spiritual groups they work because you are pledging to God; but pledging to yourself... "gimme a break" like Neil Carter.

"Yeah baby, I'm going to be with you forever, let's have sex." - Two minutes later

"Uh baby I gotta go to the store." Never seen again, of course unless he wants to re-up. If you don't want to have sex, leave the attention alone of trying to be in a virginity pledge, and just do it with your fruits.
