New Years Resolution...... and some blog stuff.

My resolution this year is simple. I want to get into better shape. I need to work out everyday rather than just doing it for a few weeks and then getting bored. As part of that my goal is to gain 10-20 pounds this year.

In other news, Congress passed the "Secure Handling of Ammonium Nitrate Act of 2007"

Thanks to Joe for the post

I found this part particularly interesting

"Congress simply didn't understand what it was doing," said Peter Stockton, senior investigator for one of the groups, the Project on Government Oversight, which is a watchdog on national security issues.

"Maybe they thought doing something was better than nothing."

That seems about right for our Congress, passing laws to make everyone (especially the politicians) FEEL safer, regardless of the unintended consequences or sheer stupidity of the laws they propose.

I think some of the time they know damn well what they're doing, and yet they do it anyway to keep us serfs in our place. Gun control, especially administered by politicians like this guy. is a perfect example.

The less they do the better! I'm about inclined to think that in the next election, if a good, gun-abiding nominee won't get elected then it's best to vote for the biggest moron or most intransigent obstinate moron, just so Congress and the Senate stay paralyzed and immobile for four years, and by doing nothing do the least harm...
And good luck with your exercise program! :-)

Unless they're going to start repealing bad, unconstitutional, and vaguely worded laws and/or abolish several federal programs I'd prefer they do nothing for 4 years.
