todays horoscope for dave.

Be precise in everything that you do and give yourself time to critically assess the various situations that you will contend with today. You have a lot to do today and it would be wise to bring colleagues or friends on board. You realize that most of your friends or peers are unable to relate to you in terms of your goals and aspirations. This will force you to re-evaluate the kind of lifestyle that you have adopted and its impact on your future. Your attempts to convince someone to understand your views will end in a battle of words and egos.

let's see how that works out, eh?

Todays News via Wordle and BBC



Plugged http://news.bbc.co.uk/ into Wordle and I get todays news, condensed.

Davish...

So Dave will be in Portland soon, I'm stoked, haven't actually seen this guy since... A long time ago.

Anyways, yeah, Dave'll be crashing the couch for a while, it's good times. It'll be like when Dave crashed the couch at our house in Santa Cruz, except not really at all.

New Ride, with 300% More Epicness...

So I'm heading down to Ashland for school, United Bicycle Institute. Gonna learn me some wrenching. My sister is gonna give me a ride down there as an excuse to go do some downhill runs in Ashland. Anyway, I don't have a ride back to P-town, so I'm gonna peddle my ass back, and do it in style, along the Oregon coast.

~475 miles and 11,000 vertical feet of quad exploding madness. Oh yeah, 'tis gonna be sweet!

Epic Ride, Portland Style

I recently started planning a 3 day ride from Portland, out past Mt. Hood, up to the Columbia and back. 180 miles of cycling awesomeness. My buddy Charles and possibly another guy we met recently, Vinnie, will be doing this ride sometime this summer. I'm thinking June or so. Notice the 10,000 feet of climbing, sweet!

Israelis 'shot at fleeing Gazans'

'Claims have been received by the BBC and an Israeli human rights group that Israeli troops have fired on Gaza residents trying to escape the conflict area. Israel has strongly denied the allegations.'

It's shit like THIS that makes you want to burn flags and break windows. If such allegations are true (which I believe they are), Israel is just as bad as Nazi Germany.

The United States needs to cut ties with Israel, and sanction the shit outta them, let there infrastructure rot, they're people die, then we'll see how many bombs they can drop.

Gove'ment Cheese

I was thinking this morning, about Salaries for U.S. Congress members, Senators, the President, and other government employees.

A Congress member, gets paid over $174,000 a year. A Representative, gets $169,000 per year. That's not including Minority or Majority leaders extra pay ($193,000), or a House Speaker ($223,000).

If you take say $70,000 a year away from these greedy bastards, you'd end up with a savings of over $37,000,000 per year. That's not including pay cuts for the president either, who makes $400,000 plus a few taxable and non-taxable spending accounts (like the $19,000 spending account for entertainment!).

37 million dollars is a big chunk of change, not government changing, recession busting money, but in a financial climate such as now we need every penny we can get.

While this thinking is obviously not new, I think the current recession mandates action such as these pay cuts.
