LEAVE IT TO PEEVER
There are some things even I wouldnt do
Bumper sticker of the week: Bush/Cheney 2004: Dont get fooled again.
Quote of the week: "Hatred does not cease through hatred at any time. Hatred ceases through love. This is unalterable law." The Buddha
Peever law #76: In a relationship, if you have to think about it, walk.
Why Im staying in Galesburg:
I cant sell my house.
Theres only a slim chance of being killed by an avalanche or crushed by a boa constrictor.
The living is relatively cheap, providing you have a job.
There is a lot of peeve material.
The likelihood of being mugged is low, provided you dont go out at night.
Moving would be a major pain in the ass.
I like my neighbors, although theyre all moving.
Peever law #33: Never look backward when riding a bike downhill.
Democrats begin dumbing down for defeat: All the presidential candidates are attacking one another, while Bush sits in the White House laughing. They better rapidly adopt the slogan: Anyone but Bush in 2004.
Why I dont shop at Wal-Mart:
Theyre the biggest retail store in the world, which translates into theyre cheating us the
The Waltons are rich enough.
They cheat their employees out of overtime.
They discriminate against females.
They buy life insurance on their employees and keep the benefits when they die, rather than give it to the grieving families. (I think they ended this uncivilized practice when it came to light.)
During new employee orientation, they make it clear that any union talk will get you fired.
Wal-Mart has done more to destroy downtown America than any other single thing in the
last 250 years.
Wal-Mart has an unfair advantage over other retailers. They name the price they are willing to pay to distributors. Take it or leave it. Thats how they can sell for less. Mom and pop retailers dont have a prayer. This is capitalism at its worst.
I saw the CEO of Wal-Mart lie about their clothes being made in sweatshops overseas. When shown a film of young children sewing in the Wal-Mart label, he still said no. It was one of the most pathetic things I have ever seen. I wont give that lying jackass another penny.
I saw Kentucky Fried Chicken is trying to pawn itself off as health food. Now they got to take us for fools to try and sell us such nonsense. The FDA isnt even sure what they sell should be called chicken, much less that its healthy for you.
If alcohol and cigarettes had to get FDA approval today, neither would make it. They are both way too dangerous and harmful for human consumption.
Jobs I wouldnt want:
Prison guard: You can never be sure whos guarding who.
Judge: He who judges others is likely to get screwed on judgement day.
Wal-Mart greeter: Number 1, I dont like Wal-Mart. Number 2, I dont like greeters.
Knox College professor: I got the feeling you got to really pucker up to get this job.
Horseshoer: Youd be better off being a jackass shoer, particularly around Washington.
Right-wing minister: I couldnt deal with a congregation that listens to such crap.
Auto salesman: I cant lie and talk at the same time.
Real estate salesman: I cant talk and lie at the same time.
Lawyer: I cant lie and lie and ..
Santa Claus: Who in their right mind wants to hang around kids all day. And those elves are annoying.
