Message to Mexican el Presidente: Besa me culo, puta.

So the Mexican el Presidente wants the U.S. to quit making guns? I have a simple response and I'll even say it in English this time:

Kiss my ass, bitch.

Get a little control over that stinking cesspool you call a country, grow some cajones and start eliminating your cartels and crooked cops and government agents, quit exporting your citizens illegally across our border, quit accepting our "foreign aid," quit polluting our air and our water on the border, quit exporting your third-world diseases, start educating your citizens, cleaning up your cities and being a better neighbor and then ask us to quit making guns. . .

You can still kiss our ass.

Pinche idiota

Ron Paul Attorney General, Michele Bachmann Secretary of Treasury, and the rest of the 2013 Cabinet.

Let's face it. Romney isn't exciting anyone. Newt excels at irritating us. Santorum confuses us. Ron Paul is ignored.

While each has some strong points about them, none of them are what we need.

A good president appoints the right people, which is why our present Chosen One is so weak and ineffective.

But he still hasn't figured out that he's no longer community organizing. Or is he?

What the winning GOP candidate needs is to tell America, and the world, who his Cabinet will be. Do that, and the Dems do not stand a chance.

With no further adieu, here is my proposal for a landslide winning Dream Team 2013 Cabinet. Some departments would be combined, others outright eliminated--beginning with the Department of Homeland Security (moved under the Attorney General's responsibility), Housing (totally eliminated), Health and Human Services (moved under Treasury) and Interior--give the parks back to the States.

Attorney General: Ron Paul.

No one is stronger on the Constitution than Congressman Paul. No one. As AG, anything this government does will have to pass constitutional muster. No pass, no play. As a bonus, he can review the new president's Supreme Court nominees' records and decisions.

Paul would put an end to much of the BS presently carried out by today's law enforcement such as no-knock raids, random checkpoints for motorists, and gross abuse of authority under color of law. When it comes to the law, you cannot go wrong by strictly following our Constitution--and that is what we desperately need.

Secretary of Treasury: Michele Bachmann.

Bachmann understands tax law--the single biggest inhibitor to new business growth in America today. Furthermore, no agency abuses or intentionally intimidates the American citizen more than the Internal Revenue Service, although the numbnuts at the Department of Homeland Security are quickly catching up. Appoint Bachmann as SecTreas and instruct her to clean house, revise the tax code, abolish IRS, and make America prosperous again. To help her do that, we'll appoint--

Herman Cain, Secretary of Commerce.

Cain's record on private sector achievement is unmatched by anyone presently serving in government, and I would dare say, anyone who has ever served in government. The Commerce Department's entire raison d'etre is for the purpose of job creation, sustainment and helping keep the economy healthy and vibrant. Herman is the man for the job.

Secretary of Defense and Veterans Affairs: Congressman Alan West.

The Florida congressman and combat veteran understands the military, the American fighting man and woman, and more importantly, unlike the nimrods inside the Beltway, he understands our enemies. West has been there while hardly any of our present serving disgraces have. John Kerry doesn't count--Purple Hearts that he requested for wounds treated by a band-aid, then coming home to malign the very people he served with should have had him tried for treason and hung by the neck until dead. We need a warrior who's been there, done that leading our Department of Defense. West is the guy.

Secretary of Education and Labor: Mark Levin.

Levin has written two back-to-back New York Times bestsellers about what is wrong with America. He is an absolute Constitutional scholar and outspoken critic of today's educational system. He's also a strong supporter of Hillsdale College which teaches the Constitution.

I propose combining Education with Labor because I see the two as inter-related. Education results in a smarter, better, more affluent labor force and a better product for America. To that end, Secretary Levin would work closely with Secretary Cain.

Levin has no fear of the NEA or any other teachers' unions, is not afraid to step on toes, and doesn't give a damn what the media thinks of him. Give him Education with the instructions of cleaning house, fixing the problem.

Secretary of Agriculture and Energy: Rick Perry.

Perry has already served as Agriculture Commissioner for the State of Texas and Texas' standing in the world of agriculture is unparalleled. When it comes to energy, no one in Washington understands energy better than the Texas governor. In Texas, there is oil, natural gas, wind and solar power and the major universities continue to explore additional forms of energy creation. Why put a Beltway lifer who thinks gas comes from their Exxon credit card in charge of the nation's energy production?

Secretary of Transportation: Chesley Sully Sullenberger.

You know him as one half of the heroic flight crew that safely ditched his French-made Airbus in the Hudson, stayed aboard until all passengers and crew members were safely out, then exited the plane.

Sully is also co-chair of the EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association) Young Eagles program which provides first time small airplane rides to youngsters. Sully is a military veteran and airline captain who has traveled all over the U.S. and the world. Unlike our past appointed SecTransportation jesters, Sully did the driving rather than the riding. He knows what is needed to traverse America, North America and the world. He knows what gets in the way and what helps. Sign him up.

And finally--

Chief of Staff: Sarah Palin.

No explanation needed.

Flying the dragon.

I know a number of readers here have seen the world outside of the United States, and I think many will agree with my favorite sentiment:

It's not the people of other countries I necessarily have a problem with, it's the governments of other countries that I have a problem with.

United States government being at or near the top of the list.

I've also often said that if the time came to leave North America, my first choice would probably be Asia.

I have no problems with the Chinese people, mainland, Hong Kong or Taiwan. No problems with the Japanese, the Koreans, Thais, Cambodians, Laotians, Malaysians, Filipinos, Vietnamese.

At no time have I ever been treated other than graciously and with utmost respect and honor in their cultures.

The same cannot be said of experiences in Paris or Washington DC or Quebec.

Radical religions, extremist government ruin people. Of course, those institutions are led by extremist people.

Every crowd seems to have them.

But check out this video. It's breathtaking and exhilarating. The scenery is captivating and truly awesome. It will put a smile on your face.

Most of all, though, look at the Chinese people enjoying the experience. They're just like you and me. You can see the working class people, the smiles on their face for enjoying some time away from the house and the job. The students on the bridge, youthful innocence filled with passion and hope.

I'm an American. I love my country. I served it in uniform, and defended it from behind a badge. But it's the people, our spirit, our history--brief as it may be compared to most other countries--that I defend and not our government.

At the end of the day, we all have the same hopes and dreams.

Share this video. It's a good reminder that although language, looks and culture may separate us, our hearts are interchangeable.

Never forget that.

The government's manipulation of your mind continues. Fortunately, only the idiots believe it.

There used to be a time in which you could actually trust some mainstream financial publications like The Wall Street Journal. But as we've seen of late, Wall Street has fallen into the pocket of Washington D.C., so it stand to reason that the WSJ has as well.

Look at the headline from a few days ago, "Jobless claims fall to nearly four-year low."

By this reckoning, we should be on Happy Street, singing Zippity-Doo-Da out our collective butts.

Why is no one dancing except for the Obamas?

The housing market is down. Gasoline prices are skyrocketing again. Many national retailers, even, like Walgreens are on a national hiring freeze. Jobs lost are not being replaced at the nation's largest drug store chain except in case-by-case scenarios.

But the government releases a report about jobless claims using Enron-accounting like tactics, and a publication once respected like the Wall Street Journal jumps right on and happily parrots what this administration demands we believe.

The reality is that there are a variety of other factors at play here, chiefly of which is that we, as a nation, are going broke faster than Terrell Owens.

Even at 99 weeks of unemployment, or almost two years, people laid off around or after the anointment of the Chosen One have exhausted ALL benefits. They CAN'T apply for new jobless claims because they ain't got any.

So, they become a new statistic to the government by becoming a non-person. They can't file a new unemployment claim, so therefore our geniuses inside the Beltway conclude that they must've found work.

Only the head-up-the-ass elected clowns and their mindless minions can come up with logic like that.

Only the American mainstream media can believe it.

Only Utopian American liberals can trust in our government.

No wonder we're in such bad shape.

Want a more realistic indicator of how our job market is doing? Take a look at the number of Americans on food stamps and other supplemental forms of welfare. Then take a look at how much more our government is wanting to tax the remaining businesses and individuals that have somehow managed to remain financially solvent in order to support the citizens that our government has helped ruin.

Socialism. It's what Obama, the Democrats and the liberals are about. Remember the Chosen One's famous campaign utterance to Joe the Plumber about "When we spread the wealth around, it's good for everyone."

What a dumbass we have for president.

Mr. President, you may be able manipulate the numbers coming out of your cesspool administration, but you cannot manipulate the facts. The facts are that unemployment claims are not going down--the benefits for unemployment are running out for those who cannot find work.

The facts are that more Americans than ever before in the history of the very nation you despise and continue to destroy are on some sort of welfare assistance. Even your own CBO bears this fact.

Oh, and speaking of your Congressional Budget Office? Here's what they have to say about real unemployment. They're reporting actual unemployment at 15% as of January 2012.

Yet one more example why the mainstream media is no longer relevant, nor trustworthy.

Here's an excerpt from that CBO story:

Worse, the CBO reports that the ravages of the Obama Economy have created an unprecedentedly high rate of long-term unemployment, which the CBO defines as a person who has been seeking work for over 26 months.

Over 40 percent of people who are currently unemployed have been out of work for more than half a year, as compared with about one-quarter during the 1981–1982 recession. The extent of long-term unemployment is much greater than would be expected on the basis of its historical relationship with the overall unemployment rate.

That means that during the 1981-1982 recession President Ronald Reagan led America out of–which was the only other time in the post-World War II era that unemployment rose above 10 percent as it did in October 2009 under Barack Obama–long-term unemployment was 15 percent less than it presently is today under Barack Obama.

The CBO report was issued at the request of Rep. Sander Levin (D-MI).

A Democrat with guts. Of course, Rep Levin resides in one of the states most devastated by the Chosen One's politics. Any port in a storm, I suppose.

How will the clowns inside the Beltway try to manipulate this?

Remember all of this come November and vote against every damned incumbent office-holder in Washington.

Throw the CEO's ass in prison.

I read about JP Morgan getting fined some $200,000,000.00 for some scam or another, so I decided to google them.

Holy cow. Lots of fines.


In googling for other companies with big fines levied against them, I found CVS and Walgreens, interestingly enough, being fined for everything from blatant OSHA violations to Medicaid and Medicare overbilling.

My question is this:

Why not throw the CEO's asses in prison along with fining these companies?

Hell, it's not the CEO's money being lost. With companies like JP Morgan, it's the investors' money being used to pay fines. With CVS and Walgreens, it's the shareholders' money, the employees' money and the customers--you and me--being used to pay the fines.

The CEO and senior executives get off scot-free.

I suspect if we started tossing CEO's asses in prison for these blatant schemes and huge fines, a lot of that nonsense would stop.

As in immediately.

Anyone want to bet against me?

God Bless Canada. And Australia. And Great Britain.

(From the e-mail stacks)

This was written by a Canadian woman, but oh how
it also applies to the U.S.A., U.K. and Australia.


Written by a housewife in New Brunswick , to
her local newspaper. This is one ticked off lady...

"Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was
it or was it not, started by Islamic people who
brought it to our shores on September 11, 2001
and have continually threatened to do so since?

Were people from all over the world, not brutally murdered
that day, in downtown Manhattan , across the Potomac from
the capitol of the USA and in a field in Pennsylvania ?

Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning or crushing death that day, or didn't they?
Do you think I care about four U. S. Marines urinating on some dead Taliban insurgents?

And I'm supposed to care that a few Taliban were
claiming to be tortured by a justice system of a
nation they are fighting against in a brutal Insurgency.
I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle
East, start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere belief
of which, is a crime punishable by beheading in Afghanistan .

I'll care when these thugs tell the world they are
sorry for hacking off Nick Berg's head, while Berg
screamed through his gurgling slashed throat.

I'll care when the cowardly so-called insurgents
in Afghanistan , come out and fight like men,
instead of disrespecting their own religion by
hiding in Mosques and behind women and children.

I'll care when the mindless zealots who blow
themselves up in search of Nirvana, care about the
innocent children within range of their suicide Bombs.

I'll care when the Canadian media stops pretending that
their freedom of Speech on stories, is more important than
the lives of the soldiers on the ground or their families waiting
at home, to hear about them when something happens.

In the meantime, when I hear a story about a
CANADIAN soldier roughing up an Insurgent
terrorist to obtain information, know this:
I don't care.
When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the
head when he is told not to move because he
might be booby-trapped, you can take it to the bank:

I don't care. Shoot him again.

When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and fed 'special' food, that is paid for by my tax dollars, is complaining that his holy book is being 'mishandled,' you can absolutely believe, in your heart of hearts:
I don't care.

And oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes
it's spelled 'Koran' and other times 'Quran.'
Well, Jimmy Crack Corn you guessed it.

I don't care!!

One last thought:

Only five defining forces have ever offered to die for you:

1. Jesus Christ

2. The British Soldier.

3. The Canadian Soldier.

4. The US Soldier, and

5. The Australian Soldier

One died for your soul,
the other four, for you and your children's Freedom.

Retail whores.

It happened again, this time at a Walgreens.

I'm standing in line to check out and in front of me are a couple of fat, grossly overweight women, one of whom is talking on her new iPhone and bragging about all its new features.

The counter is loaded with ice cream, cokes, chips and enough candy to make the entire dental industry giddy in anticipation of the cavities to come.

Time to pay up, and you guessed it.

Out comes the food stamp card--known as a SNAP card. Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, the key word here being nutritional.

I'm steaming. I've been trying to get back home while fighting weather and an impending head cold. Detours and delays equal additional income spent on food, lodging and gas while also resulting in lost income by not being able to be back at the home base. Money which I earned and comes out of my pocket--not the government's.

The cashier bags up the first hog's junk and it fills up that little shopping cart. The second hog places a pack of gum on the counter, whips out her EBT card, which stands for Electronic Benefits Transaction, paid for the chewing gum and got $20 bucks cash back. Then she bought two packs of cigarettes.

Then she did ANOTHER transaction for more gum, got ANOTHER $20 bucks back and used that to buy a case of beer!

I blew.

I let both of those fat, arrogant parasitic pieces of human sewage know exactly what I thought of them. A manager was called. He tried explaining to me the store's "policy" on taking food stamps and EBT and cash back for cigarettes and beer. I told him what I thought. He told me he'd call the police. I handed him my phone, made sure he noted it was NOT a brand new high-dollar iPhone like the one used by Hog #1, and told him to call the police because a crime was damned sure being committed--only not by me, but by him and his Hog slopping clientele.

Police show up. I'm still steaming. Hogs have left. Didn't see what kind of "ride" they were in, but you know, it wouldn't have surprised me if they were in a new car than my pickup truck.

Police tell me I was out of line. I tell the police to basically kiss my ass. They explain the concept of "criminal trespass" to me if the store wants to go that route. I explain the concept of how much CASH my wife and I spend at said store on prescriptions and goods (although that came to a screeching halt). Dipshit manager tells me they don't care WHERE the money comes from (government welfare or cash from hard-working honest citizens) that it all spends the same.

I leave.

For good.

Retail whores.

We have a choice where we can spend our hard-earned money. So long as we continue to spend it at the large corporate entities that support Obamacare, welfare for anyone and everyone simply so that they can skim from it, retailers who buy the vast majority of their goods from communist China, who mark their prescriptions up for insurance reimbursement 1000% or more, who cut thousands of jobs while giving their senior executives huge raises and bonuses. . .

So long as we continue to spend our money with brands like that, we, America, as a nation, will continue to go under. So long as we continue to stay silent when we see the abuses go on, we, America, as a nation will continue to go under.

Nobody wants to rock the boat. Nobody wants to take a stand. Nobody wants to dare have to explain themselves to a police officer.

Son of a bitch.

If our forefathers had thought like that, we'd still be having tea at 4:00 every day and bowing to some king or queen.

Just where, in our societal evolutionary process, did we lose our collective ovaries and testicles?

Money runs our government. Trying to get the whores inside of the beltway to listen to us is futile. They listen to the big corporations.

So long as we continue to feed the big corporations, who in turn, screw us, there is no reason for the Beltway whores to pay us any mind whatsoever. Half the nation pays taxes, the other half doesn't. Washington pays more heed to those who pay no taxes because they are the easiest votes to buy.

And those easy votes are being courted by retail whores like Walgreens and CVS.

No thank you. I'm still free to spend my money where I choose, and I choose not to support corporations who promote and pander to those who abuse a system designed to help those temporarily struggling.

Because when you start putting up your "We welcome SNAP" signs over your private brand JUNK FOOD and ICE CREAM and private brand COKES and PASTRIES, you are promoting a gross abuse of the system.

Think about that the next time you find yourself in one of these places.

Then have the guts to take a stand.

Talk about being hard up for sex. . .

OK, so either the women in Iowa are more than a little homely or this one certain individual who is the focus of this story is so ugly that he couldn't get laid in a whorehouse.

I've been to Iowa and they have pretty girls there. Not as many as Texas or Florida or California, but they got 'em.

So that means this masked man who robbed a sex-toys store of a $250 sex doll, known as the "F**k Me Silly Mega Masturbator" model must be more than hard up.

He must be desperate.

Or, perhaps, he's a fan of Bill Clinton's former Surgeon General, Jocelyn "Let's teach the kids how to masturbate" Elders. If we knew this clown's age (the sex doll robber, not the former Surgeon General), it might shed a clue as to whether or not he was influenced by Ms. Elders, who some say was Bill Clinton's right hand on certain matters.

According to the police, the desperate robber walked into the Romantix Pleasure Palace around 3 a.m. on January 12 and, standing erect at the counter, whipped out his. . . knife and wagged it in the clerk's face.

He then took his love doll, described the manufacturer as "the best piece of blank that you'll ever blank in your entire blanking life" and hauled blank out of the Pleasure Palace.

(There are some more colorful, leave-little-to-the-imagination descriptions in the actual story, but I can't type them here without blushing something horrible.)

Police in Iowa City are asking for your help to apprehand, er, sorry, appreHEND this dangerous pervert. The crime fund is even offering a cool thousand bucks for information leading up to the man's arrest.

Now I'm kind of wondering about a few things, such as--

1. Is crime so non-existent in Iowa City that police can utilize their vast resources to have citizens chase down a masturbation-happy petting, er PETTY thief? Are their no drug dealers or robbers or burglars or auto thieves in Iowa City?

Just curious.

2. Judging from the picture, this meat-beater weighs a lot more than the police's estimate of 165 lbs. That might be a good place for the fearless Iowa City pervert patrol to start. This perv has some pretty good pudge going on.

3. I'm assuming prostitution is frowned upon in Iowa City, but what if the Romantix Pleasure Palace were to "rent" these sex dolls and give patrons their own private little room in the back of the sex shop. Would that still be considered prostitution?

4. If/when this guy is finally caught, will he be charged with A) Aggravated Robbery, B) Kidnapping or C) a sex crime?

And if convicted, will he have to register as a sex offender? Inquiring minds want to know.

So far, though, this is about all we know about this story. We'll bring you more as things come up.

No word on whether or not the sex shop wants their kidnapped love doll back.

A favor paid forward, and with gratitude.

Scrolling through my e-mail box and found this:

Lila has left a new comment on your post "The Forgotten Man":

I adore you!! Sooo I gave you a blog award because of it!
The url takes you to the home of the Total Survivalist Libertarian Bitch Fest where the blog award is explained in more detail. Part of the tradition is to forward the award to blogs and bloggers you feel are worthy.

According to Lila, in regards to moi, "An Ordinary American - He is one of the most amazingly blunt and honest men. He is sick of the crap and tells it. I adore him!"

I'm flattered and honored, and in looking at her list of other bloggers she is awarding, I'm humbled.

A Texan humbled. Imagine that.

The conditions state:

1. Copy and paste the award on our blog.
2. Link back to the blogger who gave us the award
3. Pick our five favorite blogs with less than 200 followers, and leave a comment on their blog to let them know they have received the award.
4. Hope that the five blogs chosen will keep spreading the love and pass it on to five more blogs.

In no particular order, here are five blogs I feel worthy of everyone's readership and attention:

1. Lagniappe's Lair. What can I say? It's on the "DMR" (Daily Must Read) list, plus I'm a sucker for German Shepherds. He has a way of writing that makes you feel like you're sitting right there in the living room with him and Murphy. And then there's his encyclopedic knowledge and experience with guns. Holy cow.

2. The Life Of An Aggie. Maybe a strange choice for a Texas Tech alumnus, but this young lady is everything I would want in a daughter. She's smart, has a very good moral and ethical compass, is mature beyond her present years, and she's definitely not afraid of guns. She's also one helluva engaging writer. Read her stuff. The only criticism I have is that she doesn't write often enough. But then, I'd probably raise hell with her about her school being neglected.

3. All Nine Yards. Another Texan, albeit one exiled to Florida. A gun owner and ardent supporter. A fellow pilot. A Texan's no BS way of looking at things. What is not to like?

4. Home On The Range. I'm probably awarding her something she's already been awarded upteen-dozen times already, but what the hell. Brigid is nothing short of absolutely awesome. She's also on my DMR list. She's educated. She takes no BS. She refuses to be a victim. She knows more about guns than most anyone I know. She talks a lot about airplanes AND boats. . . and damn if she doesn't post some of the tastiest looking and edible recipes I've ever seen.

5. That Texas Lady. Another Texan from up on the plains, this lady does Lone Star State gun owners proud. She's active in helping teach other women everything from what gun to purchase to which ammo to carry to what kind of holster to carry it in. Women like That Texas Lady walk the walk, and she has a very nice blog to back up that walk. I'm a relative newcomer to her blog, but after scrolling through it, I couldn't get it on my blogroll fast enough.

So there we have it. My five designees, all of whom are deserving of having you check them out. Without a doubt, they are our kind of people (with thanks to A Girl And Her Gun).

So. . . who are you?

I paid zero attention to the Super Bowl this year.


When everyone e-mailed me and asked me who I was rooting for, New York or New England, my answer was always the same:

Neither. They're both a couple of Yankee teams and I hope they both lose.

In college bowl games, if I didn't have a dog in the hunt, I would always root for southernmost team. So in this case, New York is further south than Boston, so I guess it's okay that they won.

But I really didn't care and don't care and will never care.

One thing that did strike me, however, was when browsing The Drudge Report, I ran into one of those stories that has a sidebar link that leads you to another sidebar link that leads you to another.

Boring Monday afternoon, so I kept clicking. And I found this, Celebrities spotted at the Super Bowl.

I need to update the Fios in the cave next to the rock I must be living under, because there are sixty-two pictures of celebrities here and I only recognized a few. I didn't recognize any of the (so-called) super-models, and most of the television actors I didn't recognize.

Most of the shows that I watch involve fishing or hunting or shooting or flying, which negates that fat, obnoxious son of a bitch Alex Baldwin, who I did recognize. Hard to miss that slob's ugly visage anywhere.

I recognized Madonna, even though she had her clothes on, and I recognized Stephen Tyler. Maybe a few others, but for all the other (so-called) celebrities, I was left wondering,

Who the hell are you and what makes you a celebrity?

Or more importantly, why should I care?

Steve Jobs is spinning in his urn right about now.

His beloved company, Apple, has just screwed over millions and millions of loyal customers all over the globe.

As geeks will be geeks, geeks love to tinker with computer and technical related things in which there's not a damned thing wrong with them.

Tinker to tinker, just to be geeky.

The latest geekdom fiasco involves not Microsoft (at least directly) and Windows, for once, but the once bullet-proof Apple computers.

A security upgrade was issued, and for Apple owners, the upgrade was marked as "critical" and supposedly had to do with security.

So millions of loyal and trusting Apple users the world over installed the upgrade, and received a poison pill in return.

Millions of Apple computers around the globe are now crippled. Microsoft Office applications are hobbled--you can read, but often can't save, and can't print.

Quicken will not print checks, and QuarkXpress (design/layout application) all but disappears. Friends in the music and film editing business tell me they're dead in the water.

That translates into tens of thousands of dollars they lose each day they can't edit on their Apple computers.

More software is affected than I can list, and on the Apple discussion forum, more bad news pours in as more applications are affected.

Apple has been silent. Not a peep. No release. No news. No admission. No patch. No instructions how to undo their little poison pill.

Not a fucking thing from Apple.

So what do you say, Tim Cook, new CEO of Apple? You have your first crisis with millions of your loyal customers stranded and you and your company say nothing, do nothing.

Jobs would've already been screaming up and down the rows of cubes and workstations demanding to get this thing fixed. No less than a dozen incompetents responsible for allowing such a disastrous "minor update" to leave Apple's mother ship unchecked for the damage it would ultimately cause would have been terminated on the spot.

Maybe Mr. Cook is too busy still counting his $378 million dollar salary for last year?

Meanwhile, Apple users and businesses are busy trying to count how much money they're losing while Apple counts theirs.

Jobs has to be spinning in his urn.

Generation Y

People born before 1946 were called The Silent Generation.

People born between 1946 and 1964 are called The Baby Boomers.

People born between 1965 and 1979 are called Generation X.

People born between 1980 and 2010 are called Generation Y.

Why do we call the last group Generation Y?

Y should I get a job?

Y should I leave home and find my own place?

Y should I get a car when I can borrow yours?

Y should I clean my room?

Y should I wash and iron my own clothes?

Y should I buy any food?

Or maybe even, Y should I pull up my pants?
