i hate politics

i got this the other day in an email… a supposed to be funny, ha ha joke…

**The Heaviest Element Known to Science***

*Lawrence Livermore Laboratories has discovered the heaviest element yet known to science.

The new element, Governmentium (Gv), has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons, and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.

These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.

Since Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert; however, it can be detected, because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A tiny amount of Governmentium can cause a reaction that would normally take less than a second, to take from 4 days to 4 years to complete.

Governmentium has a normal half-life of 2- 6 years. It does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places.

In fact, Governmentium’s mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes.

This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to believe that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a critical concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as critical morass.

When catalysed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium, an element that radiates just as much energy as Governmentium since it has half as many peons but twice as many morons.

and now, my rant…
i’m not sure if this is a sign of me getting older or what, but i’ve started paying attention to this stuff lately and i’m not sure why. i get annoyed and pissed at almost everything i hear about. the goings ons in DC and in government in general is enough to make a person sick. i don’t want or need help from the government, i work for a living. and i’d rather they (government) just get out of my face.

we live in a house that i’d rather not be in – but we’re making our payments. and NOT looking for a handout. we know we signed onto the deal with our mortgage and we’re living with our decision. if the market tanks and people lose their butts a couple months before their retirement, that’s their fault. if the market tanks and people lose money on their ‘investment properties’ that’s their fault. the government is not supposed to protect people from their own bad decisions. if a company can’t make enough money to stay in business and can’t raise capitol themselves, then the company shouldn’t be around. survival of the fittest no longer applies?

i recently watched wall-e, and we’re going to end up like the people on the ship. we’ve already started NOT doing anything for ourselves. everyone is looking for handouts and bailouts – get off your ass, stop spending more money than you make…

or just wait for the worthless paper check from the government that our kids or our kids kids will have to pay for, selfish pricks
