I must have missed something. Did the Canadian women's ice hockey team finish last? They must have. I mean, why chastise their celebration, except that maybe they didn't win. I suppose if they had thumbed their collective noses at the losers, mooned them, or sang some less savory Queen lyrics, that would be unsportswomanlike, but champagne, beer and cigars? I don't get it (just for Julia). When a baseball team wins a championship, they douse each other with champagne, they don't even drink it. When a football team wins they waste gallons upon gallons of gatorade. These "girls" smoked a bit, drank a bit and just generally "whooped it up". Where's the problem? There weren't droves of gigolos (Julia, ask your mom... sorry Donna) waiting for them (at least that was televised), and as far as I can tell, no bongs or other forms or illegal substances involved in their celebration. Let them be. How old are they? College aged? Probably. Would we expect any less of an American team? Would any less be expected of any winning team in any major sport in the world? This was the world's largest stage and these young ladies proved themselves the best, so let them celebrate. I do however believe that driving the zamboni drunk may have be over the line, eh?

Don't be fooled. Please don't. The only reason we're not living in a socialist dictatorship now is because our benevolent "despot" can't get the troops to agree on which circle of socialism to progress to. If all of the minions and imps and the head devil himself agreed on taking this country to the ninth circle of socialism, we'd be communist. The health care summit meeting (farce) just proves it. Is anyone else worried? If I have a meeting with my boss because he wants to get my input and opinions on something, then he wants to incorporate my ideas, great, I'm all for it. However, if I have that meeting with my boss, then at the very end he says, oh, well, do it my way or I'll just do it without you, I think I'd be pretty upset. I guess in the next three years we just have to find out which circle we end in. I'm pretty sure we're in the eighth currently... FRAUD (barrators [or politicians?] in boiling pitch anyone?)

Snow will be doled out equally to all parts of the country.
Hurricanes will be divided equally for everyone. (Why should Florida have all the rights?)
Every state in the union has oceanfront properties, and everyone owns one.
Earthquakes will be moderated equally among the states. (No damage that way I'd think)
Tornadoes are divvied out over all the land. (Once again, no damage)
Rain and heat and cold likewise are shared equally (No more driving to Florida in January)
Mountains are also shared. (Lancaster County would be a "have not")
Freshly caught seafood is available everywhere, not just "down the shore".
Every national monument is within reasonable driving distance of everywhere,
I want to see them, but It's a lot of driving.
Every "politician" is available (in person) for angry tirades when anyone feels it's necessary.
Every person is an "A" list movie star.
I could go on for hours. I'll stop.
If you live in Iowa, you're not getting, or going to get, seafood caught ten minutes ago.
If you live in Kentucky, you're not going to get the plains in Oklahoma.
If you live in Texas, you won't have the mountains of Colorado.
If you don't live in PA, good luck getting Yuengling Lager.
If you live in PA, good luck getting Yuengling Lager at the grocery store.
If you want any of the things you don't have, go get them, that's your freedom. It's not the government's job. If you can't afford them, work harder. If you feel entitled, tough sh t, work harder. If you still can't afford them or feel entitled, you still didn't work hard enough.
I guess I'm not, nor ever going to be, pro-socialism.
