The Following is Totally Unrelated to Recent Events on BZPower

Posted by LewaLew , in Work/School Dec 13 2012 · 210 views

This arises from a totally different fuss I have had for a while.
 
 
If someone scolds you, or even calls you a name, you are not being 'attacked'.
 
If you are in a major debate with someone, it is not a 'war', nor a 'battle'.
 
If someone physically assaults or threatens to do so, you are being 'attacked'.
 
If two groups of people take up arms or fight each other, then it may be called a 'battle'. If multiple battles occur over the same thing, it may be called a 'war'.
 
 
There's a difference. Quit saying someone attacked you if you had an argument, so those of us who are trying to figure out what you're talking about don't think somebody came after you with a baseball bat!
 
 
Why I'm posting all this on BZP, I don't know. I think it's just because I happen to have a blog here, and nowhere else.

Finished Voting

Posted by LewaLew , in Work/School Nov 06 2012 · 128 views

In typical BZPower tradition, I could post what I voted for and no more,





and that's exactly what I'm going to do.

Mitt Romney for President
Paul Ryan for Vice President
Yes on Illinois Constitutional Amendment 49 to require a 3/5 vote in the General Assembly to increase pensions for public employees.
Voted Republican for Congress (I don't want to give away the Congressional district in which I live)
Voted Republican for County Auditor, Clerk, Recorder, etc. (All but auditor ran unopposed; I also won't mention my county)
Voted Republican for Judicial positions (Also ran unopposed)
Voted Yes to retain all Judges on the ballot.
Voted Yes to merge County Recorder with Clerk.
Voted Yes on Power Aggregation for my Township. (Which I also will not name)

The most important vote I cast was probably on that amendment. It's unusual, because even though most Democrats oppose it, Illinois House Speaker Mike Madigan (one of the highest ranking Democrats in Springfield, besides Governor Quinn) was the one who wrote it and passed it. I'm interested to see what happens.

Vote!

Posted by LewaLew , in Work/School Nov 06 2012 · 118 views

I'm going to be voting today for the first time. Don't waste your opportunity, if you've got one.

And don't forget that local officials and referendums affect you also. So when you think about that little question over whether your county recorder's office should be merged with the county clerk, remember that your choice will affect your taxes, and the ease of working with the local bigwigs.

And please, don't vote Mickey Mouse for auditor or something.

A Little Bird

Posted by LewaLew , in Work/School Oct 08 2012 · 75 views

A little bird was chirping,

Perched high upon a roof,

Until its small heart sputtered

When it heard a fearsome woof.


It quickly flew away from there,

Finding refuge in a tree.

It mocked the dog, and gaily laughed,

'til a cat found that chickadee.

Play Ball!

For those of you who don't know (which would mean everyone but Aho-Chan and Sumiki) the BaseBlog is beyond a blog, this is beyond baseball it's a blog that focuses on the great American sport of baseball. The idea of a baseball themed blog has actually been in the works by me ever since Super Bowl XLIV, when Aho-Chan posted a blog entry asking if anyone besides himself didn't care for the Super Bowl, to which I suddenly got the idea of a baseball-themed blog so I could talk about my favorite sport without waiting for someone else to post in the Official Baseball Topic in the Completely Off Topic forum.

Play Ball, folks.
