Here is a fresh new word for your vocab .......Street Spam.
This covers all those people who come to your selling stuff like magazine subscriptions. Just yesterday some kid comes up and says he needs to collect "personality points" and I can help him get some by purchasing magazine subscriptions. This really isn't new they have been around for a while the game just getting lamer and lamer . I bought some from a girl a few years ago and I think I got put on the list or something because everyone comes to my house. The worst is those steak truck guys who always say "hey buddy I am at the end of my route and I have some steaks left and I can hook you up with a deal on some meat. This must be part of the training because they all say the exact same thing. I only bought the magazine subscription from the girl a few years back because she just came to the door and said "hey man I am selling magazine subscriptions .I am supposed to hit you with this lame story and be all perky but I really just have to sell some inn order to make any money." When I asked her why she didn't mention the Awesome trip she could win or something she said she didn't really expect to get any trip she was just trying to make some money. I wonder when salespeople will drop the lame gimmicks and just get honest it works much better on me .

Here is a swell way to get all the infor you need to feed your outrage or just for curiousity. It is always good to read what the government is doing, too bad the people we elect to represent us seldom do.

I just looked at the ad at the top of this blog (it may have changed now) and see that the robot looking at my text to look for words that would give an idea of what you as readers would be interested in isnt too smart. I write en entry slamming hummers and they try to give you a good deal on a Chevy Tahoe . Niiiiice Remember I dont pick the ads in the banner.

I have thought there was something just wrong and stupid about the Hummer H2 since I first saw one. I always thought the people were just lame asses who were too wimpy for a real Hummer (which no none really needs unless you live waaaaaaaaay out in the tundra or something) now I am happy to find out that plenty of people agree with me .Here are some other reasons why.
The H2 is the ultimate poseur vehicle. It has the chassis of a Chevy Tahoe and a body that looks like the original Hummer; i.e. it's a Chevy Tahoe in disguise.
The H2 is a gas guzzler. Because it has a gross vehicle weight rating over 8500 lbs, the US government does not require it to meet federal fuel efficiency regulations. Hummer isn't even required to publish its fuel economy (owners indicate that they get around 10 mpg for normal use).
The H2 is a tax loophole. Under Bush's new tax plan, business owners can deduct the entire cost of their $55,000 H2. If you are in the highest tax bracket, that's a tax savings of nearly $20,000! The government rewards you more savings for buying an H2 than you'd get for buying an electric car.
These among other reasons are proof that the hummer has replaces the corvette as the ultimate accessory for the over compensating type. GM should have 24inch spreewell spinners as an option being as the real reason to own an H2 is to front not to drive through the woods in the mud

I just finally moved into the modern world of communication, getting a cellphone. The thing is I hate the phone in generally I seldom answer the one at home and my wife makes fun of my short cryptic conversation with people who call me that have few words and no real exit but a hang up. The real reason I wanted a Cell other than to eliminate the regular phone bill was to make a Photo Blog so check it out ,the link is on the right I will work out a swell graphic button later on.
