Greenwich Ave is a lot like Mill Plain Blvd in Vancouver, WA or 122nd Ave in Portland, OR. A fairly busy thoroughfare. Okay so were driving through a busy intersection thanks to a shopping center which is home to a Stop & Shop (which is kind of like a Safeway of the Northeast) and a Lowe's. Real busy intersection regardless of time of day.
So were in the left lane (thank God) and about half a block up the road, in the same direction of travel as us in the right lane is a car completely stopped with it's hazard lights blinking. Obviously a dead car or a blown tire or something right!? I mean why else would you stop in the middle of a lane and turn on your hazard lights??
As we got closer I noticed what looked like the car's reverse lights on and the car looked like it was rolling backwards a little bit. I thought to myself, "Noooooooooo, there is NO WAY someone would actually be reversing into ONCOMING TRAFFIC would they? I mean I know we're in Rhode Island, home to the worst drivers in North America, but no one would be that fucking stupid right? RIGHT!?"
Boy was I right and wrong all at the same time! I was correct in the observation dept, while being totally wrong with my expectations! I never thought that I would ever see something worse than the million and one other dumb things that I've seen Rhode Islanders do on the roads and highways.
What we witnessed was a person in their oh I don't know...mid-thirties, who missed their left turn (keep in mind that they were in the right lane) which would have taken them to the shopping center. So instead of doing what people in the rest of the country do, which would have been to travel another one-hundred-feet to the next intersection which had a signal and take a u-turn. She (the dumb ass driver) decided to come to a COMPLETE STOP, REVERSE AGAINST TRAFFIC (while this is happening the rest of us are swerving out of the way of each other and almost creating pile-ups left and right), and attempt to pull off a 3-PT TURN and DRIVE AGAINST TRAFFIC IN THE WRONG DIRECTION FOR 50FT AND MAKE THEIR LEFT...ERR...RIGHT TURN.
The end. I hate you Rhode Island drivers. You're the worst...ever!

Alicia's grandmother Ann (aka "Annie-O") passed away. It was devastating for the entire family but especially for Alicia and her sister Deanna. I felt so bad for everyone. Over the last year, Annie-O and I became friends. I love her and miss her.
I'll get more into the bad which turned good in a later post. I just wanted to break the wax-seal that formed on my dear ol' Inventory Report.
p.s. I cannot.fucking.believe. that Peyton Manning went to my beloved Broncos!

All I'm going to say is that Massachusetts and the Democrats are going to get what they deserve tonight with the ass kicking that Coakley is going to get!
How in the hell did the Democrat Party not learn it's lesson after the last eight years!? Are you fucking kidding me? How did this party not learn that the American people are not looking for silver-spoon Northeast elitists who have no idea what it's like to be a middle-class American. The Republican Party cornered the market on this need albeit deceptively and only because Karl Rove used decades of data, but they used what Americans wanted.
Obama and his crew took advantage of this and he got elected. Then almost immediately turned away from those of us who elected him and then filled an entire cabinet of Wall Street elites. Hmmm. Very nice Obama...very nice.
And now up in Massachusetts you have Coakley. This woman is the epitome of Northeast Elite. Trust me I'm surrounded by them everyday...they're the most out-of-touch people you will EVER meet! In fact they piss me off more than the FOX News Rightie...well that's saying a lot so let me say that they piss me off equally. But seriously this woman can't tell you the last time she worried about a paycheck not covering all of the bills. She can't tell you how many miles are on her car. She can't tell you how much a gallon of milk costs. Do my politicians have to be from the middle class only? No--of course not, but I do want to see my party learn from the last eight years and it obviously hasn't.
In fact I can make the case that the Dems are worse off because this party has acted just as cocky as the Republicans did in 2000. And unlike the Repugs who were able to act as a whole back in 2000 and get the things that they wanted done, the Dems do nothing but fight amongst themselves and try to see who has the most power...on the hill or in the house!
All I know is here we are again...a party defined by haughty elitists who all I want to do is knock the fuck out for using my vote to get or stay in office and then languishing and crying about how nothing that they want gets done.
So to Coakley I say this: you didn't deserve that seat BITCH! That seat belonged to the people and you did nothing to earn it's spot. You deserve everything you get tonight. Enjoy!
