Things you wish you could say (everywhere)

Doesn’t matter how many times they’ve been warned, they will still do it.

I don’t have time for those kind of people anymore.

The next person to claim that socialism can’t work and uses Venezuela as an example is getting hit in the face with a definition of socialism written on a brick.

A social democracy (which is now, in Venezuela’s case about to be destroyed by external capitalist and imperialist forces just like every other South American country which has experienced a coup after trying to stop the people from living in dirt) is not socialism. Especially when 80% of the industry is still privately owned. Social democracies are nice, being a step in the right direction, but they are not socialism as the workers are still subject to capitalism.

It won’t be over 100 degrees again tomorrow.

Edit: I found the emoji that fits.

I would suggest you get a time machine and stop all those people pointing at Venezuela as a sterling example of Socialism at work.

Socialism is a cancerous step on the way to Communism, both of which oppress the common man in the name of justice. The tens of millions that Socialism and Communism have killed are enough proof that it doesn’t work with the way things are right now.

Every time yet another socialist experiment ends in disaster all of a sudden it’s revealed to be not real socialism. All we have to do is try harder, kill some more people, and then it will work next time. Chavez was just as brutal as the current president, he just had more money to spread over the rot.

Venezuela is being destroyed because it was a sham democracy and was “benevolent” dictatorship that was handed to the wrong man, as they all eventually are. They don’t have food because it’s a bad system, believe me, if it was pure capitalism someone would be growing and selling food. Chavez wasn’t trying to keep the people from living in dirt, he was consolidating power.

Who the $@#$@ starts a jackhammer at 8:30 on a Saturday morning?!

(Widget is hiding in the roommate’s lap shivering)

A friend of mine actually did that last weekend. We live like three streets over and four down and could hear it clear as day. It might have been closer to 9:30, but still whew… but it’s usually so hot by noon you want to be done.

On a weekday, I really wouldn’t care, since I’d be at work by then. I’m not really that upset, since I’d been up for hours, but dang, it was so loud I had to close all of my windows. Unfortunately, that means that my house didn’t get to cool down as much as I’d like in the morning, so it’s pretty warm in here now.

When I was a kid, the next door neighbor would mow his lawn at 6:00 every Saturday morning. Up until he got married, when his wife made him start waiting until at least 8:30. I believe the phrase “no wonder your neighbors don’t talk to you” was uttered.

I would, if I had jack-hammering to do.

There’s a noise ordinance for our township, but after 0800 all bets are off. I noted, if it’s going to get hot, the earlier the better.

More importantly, who sets off big, loud, bottlerockets at 5AM on a Sunday morning?!

I can actually handle the jackhammering. It’s loud and annoying, but it’s for a legitimate purpose.

#1545

Yeah, THAT would tick me off. Or late at night… the noise reg has a start time, too.

That one I called the police on. I was out for a walk, so I saw them and was able to point out the direction they came from. I think they caught the person since I saw another police car heading that way about 5 minutes after I talked to the first one. It wasn’t just one bottle-rocket either, but about ten.

#1547

The bylaw around here says 7am. That’s when I’ll do it.

I don’t care. I’m not sorry.

Dear Mr Intruder

This morning we noticed you left the gate open in your haste to get away from our doggies.

I sincerely hope you have learnt your lesson not to trespass on other people’s properties.

by the by, wish I could get a rabid chicken from hell with glowing red eyes and a really nasty cackle that will scare the heebiejeebies out of ne’er-do-wells…

My son-in-law used to raise roosters that could be used for cock fighting. As far as I know he never fought them, apparently people show them as well, but they were really impressive and scary looking birds. Problem is they are naturally aggressive and would dominate the flock and totally abuse any other rooster so they had to be raised away from everyone else, or you’d have to drop the rest of your flock.

In other news, pro tip of the day; Start the over auto cleaner after you finish cleaning the kitchen, not while you are. Especially if the house is closed up because of the heat.

I am certain of what day it is.
