The FISA wiretapping bill sucks, part 2.

Kendrak raised a good point in the comment the other day: Senator Feinstein has a history of bad votes, and it should be no surprise that she supported the ridiculous unconstitutional wiretapping bill. But I've still voted for Feinstein in the past! I guess I'm an enabler. Realistically, though, what else was I going to do? The race hasn't been close in this state for a long time, so it doesn't matter much.

However, a few elections ago I realized that I can give money to candidates in states where the vote *is* close. Coincidentally, one of the candidates I did give money to in the last election was Darcy Burner, and she just released this video on the wiretapping vote:

Rock on, Burner! She just guaranteed I'll give her money this cycle, too.

Dear Senator Feinstein,

I was going to write you to complain about your recent vote for the unconstitutional wiretapping bill. But I realize that I had already had this discussion with a friend on the phone earlier today. Please, next time you're at the NSA, ask them to print you a copy of my call. Thanks!

Q: How can you tell I saved a ton of money at Costco?

A: Because I went in intending to buy one or two things and left with $180 of other stuff.

On the up side, I have enough toilet paper to last until the apocalypse.

This poses the question: Is it possible to look cool carrying all that toilet paper past the babes at my apartment complex's pool? Answer: I sure hope so.
