Sheep, I tell you! Sheep!

I should stop reading the newspapers, I really should. Today I read this headline 'Conservative party support soars with new budget' and I cringed.

I know, you're probably saying "You should be happy with the budget! Green support! Help with family $$$! bla bla bla!! " Yeah ok, that's great and all, I'm happy that these things are being brought up, even though the work towards environmental changes are minimal at best and WAY too late coming. It's great I will have extra money in my pocket as a single income family dad and there are incentives to buy fuel efficient vehicles etc.

What really grinds my gears is the fact that the Conservative party is ONLY doing this because it's a minority gov't and they want to stay in power. If they didn't put forth this budget the other parties would have voted 'no confidence' and the present gov't would fall. NOW though if the Conservative party gets in with a majority of votes, they will go back to the same old status quo, ignoring the environment and focusing on big business. The same STINKIN' road that got us into the situation we're in.

Yet again, another reason why humankind is screwed in the long term.

No more funny

There are some shows on tv these days that just ... should have died before the last season started. One of these is Family Guy and the other is The Simpsons. It's over people... finite... gonzo... no funny no more.

When they are producing jems like last nights 'Prom-night Dumpster Babies' and Peter hitting on his own daugher because he thinks he's a redneck. That's just... not funny. Since when is a baby singing and twirling his umbilical cord after stepping out of the dumpster where the teenage girl who just had him dumped him funny. Oh.. ha ha... yeah... dead babies and teenage mothers commiting infanticide, oh yeah.. ha .. ha.

Then The Simpsons.. well I can't point out a specific scene that has turned me off but the last season was uninspired, weird or nonsensical without being funny and just ... yawn. Sorry Matt, but I am a massive Simpsons fan from the old days when it was funny. Now they're coming out with a movie... wow... I can't see how you could drag this dreck any further. Last nights poor attempt at a Sound of Music rip-off was a good example of the un-funny that this show has become.

Friggin "My life with Jim" is funnier sometimes these days.
