My sour mood has rotted away, leaving behind a smile and a sunny disposition. It turns out that the problem with the Civic is fully covered under warranty and I won't have to spend a single dime to get it fixed. As soon as I found that out, the birds started singing, the smell of freshly-cut grass wafted into my nose, and every where I looked, I saw children playing soccer whilst eating ice cream in a meadow filled with puppies and kittens. Today's going to be OK.
For putting up with my complaining, here's another Today's Joke!
In Ohio, McCain outlines vision that achieves Iraq victory
John McCain, looking through a crystal ball to 2013 and the end of a prospective first term, sees "spasmodic" but reduced violence in Iraq and Afghanistan, Osama bin Laden dead or captured and government spending curbed by his ready veto pen.
When asked to clarify the "spasmodic violence" phrase, McCain replied, "well, there will be a lot of violence when the nuclear bombs are dropped, and then little shock waves of violence as the radiation ripples through the middle east, followed by pockets of violence here and there as the few survivors of the devastation fight amongst themselves for what little food and water is available, and then the violence will be reduced, as there will be no more insurgents left to fight. We will be victorious in Iraq, even if it means wiping the entire region off the face of the map."
"Then we can stop spending so much government money on this war and get back to funding the things the government should be funding, such as our defense program."
