B Is For Bullshit

If you've read much of what I've written here, then you know I'm not a Bush fan. I wasn't happy that he won the election nor was I surprised. We Americans are a country in denial.

Of course, now that he has won, Bush is once again appearing as the ?compassionate conservative? he is not. Besides, I thought compassion was a dirty word. It sure seemed to be during the campaign, in more ways than one.

Bush stated that he was going to focus much of his presidency on issues of morality and economy. The economy is his business. Morality is not. Governments, by their very nature, lack morality. How is he expects to give away something he doesn't have?

I was hoping that the election would prove that ?b is for balance?. But the country would have none of that. Instead, we proved that ?b is for bullshit?. Stand by. We're going to have four more years of it.

Closing In

Between having to bring work home and spending what free time is left looking for airplanes, I haven't had much time to write anything of my own. I miss it.

That said, after chasing several duds, I believe we are closing in on our airplane. All the ducks seem to be lining up on this one. I'll know more after this weekend. On Saturday, Connie and I are flying a Tampico TB9 to an airport near Farmerville, Louisiana to inspect a red, white, and yellow 1974 Grumman Traveler. If the logs and paperwork and the airplane prove to be as good as they appear and the current owner and I can reach a deal, I hoping to have him fly the airplane down to Galveston, Texas for a pre-sale inspection and appraisal next weekend. We would take ownership of the airplane sometime within the next two weeks, as soon as we could get all the transfers worked out.
The sooner, the better. Or so I feel right now. Later, I may wonder why I rushed so to get into more debt.

I'll know more Sunday.
