Dave!I had gotten all fired up and wrote a big long political rant for tonight... but then remembered that I don't really do politics on my blog and deleted it.

This was kind of painful, because I spent 45 minutes writing it (whereas my average blog entry takes 10-15 minutes). Oh well. Sometimes writing down how you feel can still be therapeutic, even if nobody ever sees it. Suffice to say that I am not happy about the latest bullshit being shoveled our way, and am in a state of constant amazement that people are so willing to sit back and take it. I wonder just how bad it has to get before people are outraged enough to start rioting in the streets?

So now I got nuthin' to blog about...


I'd feel bad about that, but I have to get up in six hours so I can fly out again.

    Sometimes all we need is a little bit of your monkey.

  2. sizzle says:

    Safe travels to you, friend.

  3. Chris says:

    Rioting in the streets requires that people give a shit and get off the couch. Don’t hold your breath.

  4. Winter says:

    Well, you should totally pimp yourself out for the Hot Blogger Calendar. You could get in the finals! Or even win! YAY!

  5. Howard says:

    You should have posted it on some political blog and then linked to it. Now we’ll never know how you feels about things political!

    I’m sad now.

  6. delmer says:

    Bad Monkey looks so much like Bush that he’s a little political.

    If it weren’t for the fact Bad Monkey is so much smarter it would be hard to tell the two apart.

  7. Sue says:

    NOW I’m interested…

  8. Michelle says:

    Damn, I would have loved to read the political post.

    While i was at a paintball tournament this past weekend, we were having breakfast and watched McCain spout all kinds of B.S, its a little bit scary wondering who is going to be running your country soon. Even though i am in your friendly neighbour to the north it is still a daunting decision for you guys.

  10. ChillyWilly says:

    If you ever decide to post that political rant, I will read it. I think I know what you are ranting about, but still would love to hear Dave Speak on the whole issue.

    See you for Dave Lake City 2 tonight.

  11. Poppy says:

    Last I checked, this was your blog so you could post whatever the fuck you felt like…

    Who’s in charge now?

    Safe travels, in retrospect and in future.

  12. I think I can probably guess what the original rant was about.

  13. Gina says:

    Well… I am always up for political discussion! So next time, don’t delete what you’ve written, e-mail it to me instead! Seriously. I need more intelligent conversation in my life. 😉

  14. When are you going to create an animated bad monkey who is throwing poo? Honestly? I’m waiting with antici….


  15. To be honest I don’t think that the average person really cares enough to riot. And that is really quite sad. It seems like as long as their cell phones work and they can watch their American Idol or Big Brother, they’re golden.

    Oh and by the way, I would also like to have read your political rant actually.

  16. Sorata says:

    I agree, sometimes the little monkey is just all we need!

  17. Lisa says:

    I know I’m sick of the phone ringing and I’m sick of the “research” people asking me if I were going to vote today who would I vote for. The truth is, I don’t have a clue. I’m not happy with either candidate and I’m ready to move to Canada.

    I don’t want to talk politics either so that’s MY rant on YOUR blog. I got nerve, I know.

    Travel safe my friend.

  18. Justin Scott says:

    Well while I totally understand not discussing politics… I would love to read your views on it cause I’m pretty sure we agree on it all. You always with want to hear what you know you’ll agree. 😉

  19. Mocha says:

    Hilly rules. I cannot possibly beat that comment.

    Nor will I beat your monkey, you dirty boy, you.
