Guys, there's a reason Kitty Parson is internationally internet-famous. Just sayin'.

So my car died. There is an oil leak from somewhere above the starter, and stick a fork in it, because that starter is DONE. I am wondering if I shouldn't sell it, and then use the money to get notebook or something and some internet subsidy whatsit program, and just ride the bus. I'll get a car when I get enough for a downpayment on one from a job, it might be better.
Starters are cheap, for what it's worth.
Nah, I see this as totally political.
His family has maintained the lands roads and waterways there for about a hundred years (giving them certain "easement" rights) and paid fees to the state to use the land as seasonal grazing. The current controversy is that the feds declared the area "tortoise habitat", deemed that superseded any contracts they ranchers had with the state, and that the cut herds to 10% of previous numbers and pay them the fees to continue grazing. That meant from over 1k cattle to 150. He refused, took them to court and stopped paying any fees to the feds.
Now, they're confiscating cattle and euthanizing most of them.
This all starts to sounds like "yay environment" until you learn that the feds also plan to kill 700 tortoises (half) in the local federally funded conservatory nearby: http://linkis.com/www.rawstory.com/rs/XROjg
I can't decide whom I hate more.
Maybe this will help. The Houston Freethinkers, vis something called the "National Liberty Federation", posted this image
Turns out the government took 20% of my pay, despite me not earning enough to get taxed.
I'm mildly annoyed by this. I'm even more annoyed that, when I relayed this information to my parents, their response was bullshit along the lines of "everyone has to pay taxes". Yeah, and if I were bitching about that, then your response would actually make sense. I've never complained about paying taxes, I am annoyed however when I lose 1/5th of my pay for no good reason.
I'm actually more annoyed at being treated like a moron than I am about losing the pay.
