    I am eating a chicken salad sandwich. I already had three deviled eggs, and I have some potato salad sitting here, too, all to be washed down with a nice Henry Weinhard’s Root Beer.

    Then a brief nap. Then job searching. 🙂

    The primary is still some time from now. We have already seen at least a couple of the supposed “front runners” either exit from the race, or “stub their political toes” so badly as to be of no real consequence (Yeah, Huckabee, Gingrich, and Daniels, I am looking at you. And Romney isn’t all that far behind in the “STFU and get off the stage already” race.) once the primary is held.

    Bachman, Cain, Palin, Paul, and Perry, look to be the last folks standing. This assumes some of them officially toss their hats in the ring between now and then (which I expect Perry and Palin will do) and none of them develop a bad case of the stupids between now and then. (Although all are quite capable of doing so.) It is also possible a couple of others will enter the fray. Santorum and Bolton come to mind, but who knows, there may be others lurking in the wings.

    This is not to imply I would indorse all the above, cause I wouldn’t (Bachman has my attention at the moment, and Santorum could be interesting. Frankly, Ron Paul’s [lack of a realistic] foreign policy, and his attitude towards Israel really concern me, so he is off my list, but YMMV.) . Perry strikes me as little more than Romney with balls (I think someone here said that first, but it fits!), and also is not a first choice, but far better than what we have now.

    In any case, get the comfy chairs, popcorn, and adult beverages, cause this race is going to be anything but boring.

    Who knew July 4 was a Republican holiday rather than a national one?

    Democratic political candidates can skip this weekend’s July 4th parades. A new Harvard University study finds that July 4th parades energize only Republicans, turn kids into Republicans, and help to boost the GOP turnout of adults on Election Day.

    “Fourth of July celebrations in the United States shape the nation’s political landscape by forming beliefs and increasing participation, primarily in favor of the Republican Party,” said the report from Harvard. [See political cartoons about the 2012 GOP field.]

    Oooohh, shiny!!

    You can give money to political candidates. You can call a conservative radio talk show “a slut.” And you can even go as far as suggesting a former First Lady is “pimping” her daughter out and get a slap on the wrist.

    But don’t you dare besmirch the name of President Barack Obama.

    That would be the conclusion one could draw from the indefinite suspension of MSNBC senior political analyst Mark Halperin after he declared Obama was “a dick” during his press conference on Wednesday.

    http://tinyurl.com/44t6xqs

    Ed Morrissey notes:

    [T]he fuss seems a little overblown. “Dick” isn’t a word that needs to be censored; for one thing, it’s a proper name used by a number of politicians, including Dick Durbin, who’s second in Democratic leadership in the Senate. It’s also a playground word for “jerk” or “penis,” but hardly an obscenity.

    I think Romney will be around to the bitter end, unfortunately. Remember, McCain lost Iowa badly (even Thompson beat him), and got the nomination. We are going to have to elevate a Bachmann, Palin, or even Perry. They don’t have the recognition of the Romneys.

    On Wednesday the Obama campaign sent around a slightly panicky email about its quarterly fundraising numbers. Today, they have sent out another, slightly panickier, email about their quarterly fundraising numbers. The email is titled “Midnight,” just to make it a little bit scary.

    Peter Wehner says:

    During his press conference today, President Obama repeatedly invoked the theme of leadership. “Leaders lead,” he helpfully informed. “Leaders rise to the occasion,” he added. They are willing to make “tough decisions,” to “do the tough things” and to “do the responsible thing.” By the end I was reminded by the line from Emerson: “The louder he talked of his honor, the faster we counted our spoons.”

    I don’t know how he figured it out, but the doctor said her vision is good and she doesn’t need glasses (how THAT happened, I haven’t a clue – Mr. TiFW and I are both horribly near-sighted!). So she’ll see him again in a year.

    Didja ever see that comedy spot with Tom Parks talking about the “price” of repairmen? He got a new house, and as new houses are wont to do, things didn’t go perfectly.

    He wasn’t willing to fork over tons of money for the electrician to come out on the weekend to make the stove work (it wasn’t plugged in), but when poop started backing up into his shower, “MONEY WAS NO OBJECT!!!!”.

    The guy came out on the weekend, fixed the problem, charged him $250, and started to justify the cost of the call. Mr. Parks asked him, “Is there shit in my tub?”

    The guy said “No, sir.”

    Mr Parks said he handed over the $250, said “Here ya go!”, and declared it the best $250 he’d ever spent……

    Why is President Obama apparently defying federal law by funding ACORN?

    Judicial Watch discovered that the Obama administration is flouting the will of Congress by giving federal taxpayer money to ACORN.

    Obama’s Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) gave a $79,819 grant to the largest branch of the ACORN tree, ACORN Housing Corp. (AHC). AHC filed papers last year legally changing its name to Affordable Housing Centers of America (AHCOA). It’s the same old organization with a brand new ACORN-free name.

    Tell me if you think this means what I think it means:

    I’ve been emailing my boss daily to invoke my paid time off so that I’m not back at work this week. Today, I indicated that as I told him when I sat with him several weeks ago, I’ve daily for a long time labored under the crushing sense of impending termination, and that the events of earlier in the week amplified those concerns exponentially. I told him that I was uncomfortable returning to the office, and that I would be back on Tuesday, July 5.

    I received a reply today where I am expected to be in the office tomorrow at 10:30 AM for a meeting. I just replied that I’d be there. I suspect I’m in for a firing. Anyone? Beuller? Beuller?

    I’m guessing it’s not about a promotion.

  103. Jazz June 30, 2011 at 8:49 pm #

    LOL – yeah, this is gonna be interesting. I’m in a much better mood about it than I’ve been up until now. I’ve got permission to get fired at home, so that pressure is off. Not having a job would suck, but the heartburn I get thinking about the prospect of going back to that soul-killing, tedious fecal-fest isn’t exactly thrilling me.

  104. Jazz June 30, 2011 at 8:52 pm #

    Not having to sit on my dignity is liberating. The only reason I’ve really felt like crap is because my actions have had to be moderated out of concern for the folks at home. I can hold my head up now and play big-boy games, rather than fold to the passive-aggressive crap I’ve been dealing with up until now.

  105. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX June 30, 2011 at 8:52 pm #

    Jazz, hope it’s not what you think it is.
    In the meantime:

  106. clintbird June 30, 2011 at 8:53 pm #

    Life’s too short to be miserable … even if it’s a paying job. I agree w/some of the others, find something new or hang up your own shingle.

  107. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX June 30, 2011 at 8:53 pm #

    And if you get any interviews in the DFW area, you are more than welcome to flop at the Casa de TiFW – it’s not very tidy, but you can’t beat the price!

  108. clintbird June 30, 2011 at 8:55 pm #

    Also, Jazz, think about going in wearing your absolutely most kick ass Hawaiian shirt.

  109. LC Aggie Sith June 30, 2011 at 8:59 pm #

    Same goes for the San Antonio area, Jazz 😀

  110. Dick June 30, 2011 at 9:05 pm #

    Jazz, you’re gonna be shit canned at 10:32 am.

    Now, a few words of advice. When they shitcan you, lean across the desk, (as you can imagine that I would) get get close to the person who pulls the trigger, (two, maybe three inches), smile like you’re gonna cut a bitch’s throat and let them know YOU’VE made tapes of conversations within the company, whether you have or not.

    Do Not Hesitate in the least, nor show any sort of emotion.
    Trust me.

  111. Dick June 30, 2011 at 9:08 pm #

    Jazz, they always shitcan people on Friday cause they (the corporate douchebags of the world) believe there’ll be less chance of violence.

    Which, if ya feel the urge, you could totally throw a kink in the works.

  112. Jazz June 30, 2011 at 9:08 pm #

    HAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAH!

    Oh, this is gonna be fun. 😀

    I just got a call from the guy who was with me when this whole incident started. Evidently, they’ve changed the locks at the office.

    What does that mean?

  113. Jazz June 30, 2011 at 9:10 pm #

    I’ve got an employee handbook, and I haven’t looked recently, but this kind of dismissal seems not to follow the company procedures at all, by my recollection. I haven’t had a single written warning, and no disciplinary notes to my knowledge at all.

    Heheheheheheheheheheh

  114. Dick June 30, 2011 at 9:16 pm #

    Wait just one minute……

    Call in sick tomorrow. Tell them you have a 102 temp and shitting your brains out.
    That will fuck them up beyond believe. Then stay out, for as long as the number of sick days you have available.

  115. Dick June 30, 2011 at 9:20 pm #

    Better yet, tell the morning receptionist that your distraught because of your work environment.

  116. Jazz June 30, 2011 at 9:24 pm #

    Better yet, tell the morning receptionist that your distraught because of your work environment.

    I did that to the VP today. I think that’s what’s precipitating this li’l exchange.

  117. Jazz June 30, 2011 at 9:25 pm #

    That, and the fact that I requested a copy of my personnel file.

  118. Dick June 30, 2011 at 9:26 pm #

    Time to light them up, in court.

  119. Jazz June 30, 2011 at 9:35 pm #

    My mom is sitting next to me laughing at you, Dick.

  120. Dick June 30, 2011 at 9:35 pm #

    Hell, I don’t doubt it a bit.

    Hi MOM!!!!!!!!!~!

  121. LC Aggie Sith June 30, 2011 at 9:36 pm #

    Sounds highly irregular, Jazz.

    They realize you are a lawyer, right??

  122. Dick June 30, 2011 at 9:39 pm #

    Jazz, time to move to D/FW. Believe it not, we need more lawyers.

    (now I have to kill myself for admitting that)

  123. LC Aggie Sith June 30, 2011 at 9:40 pm #

    HOWDY, JAZZ’ MOM!!!!

    *waves frantically*

  124. Jazz June 30, 2011 at 9:40 pm #

    She says, “Hi, Dick!”

    She thinks you seem nicer than me.

  125. Dick June 30, 2011 at 9:41 pm #

    Why yes, I am half plastered.

  126. LC Aggie Sith June 30, 2011 at 9:41 pm #

    She thinks you seem nicer than me.

    Poor woman…she must be tired from a long day… 😉

  127. Jazz June 30, 2011 at 9:42 pm #

    HOWDY, JAZZ’ MOM!!!!

    *waves frantically*

    LMAO – she likes my friends, and she says hi to you, too, Ags! She’s laughing at the whorehouse, too – she spotted the whore’s light saber.

  128. Dick June 30, 2011 at 9:42 pm #

    She thinks you seem nicer than me.

    Of course she does. I’m not a lawyer.

  129. Dick June 30, 2011 at 9:43 pm #

    Okay, since Mom’s watching, I’ll say it it.

    Stop being a pussy and hang out your own shingle.

  130. LC Aggie Sith June 30, 2011 at 9:45 pm #

    she spotted the whore’s light saber.

    Is that what that is???

  131. Dick June 30, 2011 at 9:45 pm #

    And I apologize, (not really) for asking what you were wearing earlier.

  132. Jazz June 30, 2011 at 9:45 pm #

    Jazz, time to move to D/FW. Believe it not, we need more lawyers.

    I am looking, Dick. I’m going to be getting much seriouser about it now, and I have Texas at the top of my search parameters. My cousins have a pool biz in Plano and I’ve got another cousin who’s got a roofing biz down in the DFW area, too. Not that I’d want to do either – I’m a light skinned Irishman who’d dessicate quickly in the sun. Thing is, my fam’s so large that the first time I met them was at my cousin’s funeral a couple of summers ago, and we haven’t spoken since. Nice folks, though, and I do have true TX connections!

  133. Jazz June 30, 2011 at 9:47 pm #

    Of course she does. I’m not a lawyer.

    Okay, since Mom’s watching, I’ll say it it.

    Stop being a pussy and hang out your own shingle.

    She in changing her Depends now on account of those comments. 😀

    And I apologize, (not really) for asking what you were wearing earlier.

    And I apologize for telling you what I was wearing.

  134. Jazz June 30, 2011 at 9:48 pm #

    Is that what that is???

    LMAO – she knew right what it was, and she said, “You guys are sick.” ;p

  135. LC Aggie Sith June 30, 2011 at 9:49 pm #

    I missed what Jazz was wearing???

    Dang it…

  136. Jazz June 30, 2011 at 9:49 pm #

    Gotta run. See y’all tomorrow in the unemployment line!

    Or maybe the litigation line.

    😀

  137. LC Aggie Sith June 30, 2011 at 9:51 pm #

    In my defense that was NOT my contribution 😉

    God bless PattyAnn!!

  138. LC Aggie Sith June 30, 2011 at 9:52 pm #

    G’night, Jazz, and Jazz’ Mom!!

  139. Jazz June 30, 2011 at 9:52 pm #

    Jazz, hope it’s not what you think it is.
    In the meantime:

    HAHAHAHAHAHAH!

    Thanks, TiFW – you’re sweet. Thank you all for the generous offers, too. I’ll keep you updated as things progress.

  140. Jazz June 30, 2011 at 9:52 pm #

    G’nite, y’all. 😀

  141. Dick June 30, 2011 at 9:59 pm #

    ‘night Jazz. Sleep good and fuck some idiots up tomorrow.

  142. LC Aggie Sith June 30, 2011 at 10:02 pm #

    Glad to see Jazz in a better frame of mind, too.

  143. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere June 30, 2011 at 10:13 pm #

    There is always the possibility of practicing law in the Puget Sound area…

  144. Dick June 30, 2011 at 10:19 pm #

    BiW, don’t lie. There is no law in the Puget Sound area.

  145. Dick June 30, 2011 at 10:21 pm #

    People here are getting used to the weather. I’m getting calls again.

  146. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere June 30, 2011 at 10:21 pm #

    Sometimes yes, sometimes no, but when things suck, you still have awesome views.

  147. Dick June 30, 2011 at 10:23 pm #

    True dat, according to memory.

  148. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere June 30, 2011 at 10:27 pm #

    It can be very relaxing to drive home and see the cascades in the distance.

  149. Dick June 30, 2011 at 10:30 pm #

    And then to suddenly realize the cascades are surrounded by Libs.

    G’night!

  150. LC Aggie Sith June 30, 2011 at 10:31 pm #

    I would love to see the Pacific Northwest before I die.

  151. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere June 30, 2011 at 10:42 pm #

    You can see some great pics on my FaceChimp page.

  152. LC Aggie Sith June 30, 2011 at 10:50 pm #

    Oh, I have. Beautiful area, BisW.

  153. Jay in Ames July 1, 2011 at 7:44 am #

    Good luck today, Jazz! They don’t deserve you!

    (was gonna post a Donald Trump youtube, but thought it might be “too soon”)

  154. Jazz July 1, 2011 at 8:47 am #

    Good morning, folks!

    Got a few pre-meeting jitters, but that’s normal and good. They enhance perceptions and cognitive functions, I think.

    I will be so glad to have this over! 😀

  155. Jazz July 1, 2011 at 8:50 am #

    Good luck today, Jazz! They don’t deserve you!

    I believe that’s what they’re saying right now, too, albeit from a different perspective. 😛

  156. roamingfirehydrant July 1, 2011 at 8:54 am #

    Good luck, Jazz. Be sure to moon them on your way out.

    I’m going to be offline most of the day – travelling home. (((Squishy hugs)))

  157. Jazz July 1, 2011 at 8:56 am #

    😀 Thank you, Romy!!!!

  158. Jazz July 1, 2011 at 8:59 am #

    was gonna post a Donald Trump youtube, but thought it might be “too soon”

    hahahahaha! well, let’s wait until after the meeting, so that everything lines up the way it’s supposed to. Too soon? Nah – not soon enough.

    I left my last long-term job under mutual agreement, because I was working for a family-owned law firm that wouldn’t ever promote me to partner status. Once I figured out that I had no upward mobility in that environment, the relationship deteriorated to the point where we just couldn’t maintain the relationship. This’ll be my very first out-and-out firing, though.

  159. Jay in Ames July 1, 2011 at 9:10 am #

    I’ve been through a firing, and while it’s no fun, it isn’t the end of the world.

    The sun’ll come up, tomorrow!

    /Annie

  160. Jazz July 1, 2011 at 9:13 am #

    J’Ames, with the crushing and oppressive sense of fatalism I’ve been living with for the past year in regard to that place, this is going to be a GREAT relief for me, and at least I’ll have unemployment to ease the pain a little.

  161. Jay in Ames July 1, 2011 at 9:18 am #

    Of course, get ready to be called a hypocrite for using a program that you have paid into, just because you are a conservative.

  162. Jazz July 1, 2011 at 9:24 am #

    The WI ban on collective bargaining ban for benefits is not working as the Dems predicted:

    The Kaukauna School District, in the Fox River Valley of Wisconsin near Appleton, has about 4,200 students and about 400 employees. It has struggled in recent times and this year faced a deficit of $400,000. But after the law went into effect, at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, school officials put in place new policies they estimate will turn that $400,000 deficit into a $1.5 million surplus. And it’s all because of the very provisions that union leaders predicted would be disastrous.

    Minnesota government shuts down, because their governor (Dayton – D) is a dick.

    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/minnesota-government-shuts-down/

    Iowa won’t be far behind, I’m afraid. Except our governor is a R.

  164. Jazz July 1, 2011 at 9:27 am #

    J’Ames, I’m going to do everything I can to avoid availing myself of those bennies – if I get a decent severance/waiver package, I won’t have to use apply for unemployment at all. I do not intend to negotiate a severance/waiver today, either – I’ll let my attorneys handle that.

  165. LC Aggie Sith July 1, 2011 at 9:31 am #

    Good morning!

    Jazz, I shall be saying prayers for you today. Know that an angel goes with you!

    And it’s all because of the very provisions that union leaders predicted would be disastrous.

    Oh, the provisions were completely disastrous….FOR THE UNIONS.

  166. Jazz July 1, 2011 at 9:32 am #

    Jazz, I shall be saying prayers for you today. Know that an angel goes with you!

    That means a so much, Ags! Thank you. I have to get ready now, but I’ll be back later.

  167. Jay in Ames July 1, 2011 at 9:32 am #

    That WI article is incredible! Stupid union. Imma gonna steal that, thanks Jazz!

  168. Jazz July 1, 2011 at 9:33 am #

    I still see them, Ags. I’m still trying to leave, too

  171. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX July 1, 2011 at 9:41 am #

    Jazz. since you figure the writing is already on the wall, here’s my advice:

    Take your mother with you to the office when you go.

  172. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX July 1, 2011 at 9:44 am #

    Everyone thinks lawyers will scare people, but trust me, NOTHING scares folks more than someone’s mother getting righteous on their ass.

    And if someone’s mom comes to this joint and doesn’t run screaming into the night, that is EXACTLY the kind of mom who will go into such a meeting ready to kick ass and take no prisoners….

  173. Dick July 1, 2011 at 9:50 am #

    Jazz, go there, smile, and have a great day.

  174. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX July 1, 2011 at 9:59 am #
