Raven's 9-7

           I was so excited after they came back and won the SD game. I was thinking maybe things are going to bounce our way this year for once and I was super excited. Then the Pittsburgh game happens. I have never gone from so excited for the end of the season, to dreading it so quickly. All 4 teams we have left to play have something to play for. The Ravens could end of 9-7 that would be an epic collapse and everyone would get canned.

          I agree the play calling is so bad I can't even begin to describe it. I was sort of numb when I was watching it. They get ahead and they don't know what to do. Their offense gets stupid and the defense starts rushing 3 guys and the QB picks us apart. It is the SAME thing every time. We play 4 really good quarterbacks through these last 4 games. They are in trouble.

         They could lose 5 straight to end the season. I hope it isn't that bad but we play both Mannings at home for our last 2 games. They will be playing for the playoffs. The Ravens don't have a spark and there have been too many injuries. The offense is not getting it done either.

It is a potential train-wreck waiting to happen. Things are going to blow up.

 Just one fans opinion.

EPA more harm then good

Is the EPA doing more harm then good? I am not sure when you read articles like this one. Or articles about them forcing people out of their homes because of being in a water shed. I don't get it. They have too much power and they are a big part of why our economy is struggling. I really believe they are now another political entity doing what they do. Striving for more power and control. The people and the economy is struggling under the current weight of the government. We need less of it. Is the road to hell paved with good intentions? I guess they started out with good intentions. Just my opinion...

Raven's Games Sunday Night

I love going to the NFL games. They are still an event that I look forward to early in the week. I have have 6 friends who can stand each other long enough to hang out for 6 or so hours. We used to have 8 but 2 abandoned us.

The Ravens played the Jets Sunday night, and we were warned of the extended pat downs at the gate. We got emails saying to come in early. We actually thought we were doing the safe thing and left to go in 1 hour before game time. We waited in line for 45 minutes to get into the game missing the most of the introductions.

This increased security does not make sense. Who do they think they are protecting us from? God forbid someone with a gun or a bomb would have attacked the 5000 people standing in line trying to get into the game. It was ridiculous.

I don't see how it makes me safe. I would gladly get shocked with a stun gun in the game, if it meant I didn't have to wait for that line. Thanks to the dumbass at the Jets game week one.

It was a great night other wise. The Raven's played well, almost exclusively on defense, and everyone had a great time.

Hopefully they can do something for the future.

HP I hate you

I have bought HP products for most of my life. Sadly I am done. The last printer I bought just does not work. It is called a HP Photosmart Premium All-in-One Printer. The drivers flat out do not work on 64bit operating systems. I have uninstalled and reinstalled them maybe 1000 times, both on vista 64bit and Win 7 64bit. They are there one time then you reboot and they are gone. You can't scan with this thing either. It just does not work. I have spent limitless hours trying to get this thing to work. I really want to take a bat to this thing.

Next I bought a refurbished HP laptop for 500 bucks. It is a nice laptop. About 2 months after the limited warranty went up it started blinking error messages on the keyboard. Very strange. They said it will be 450 to get the whole motherboard replaced. They are so stupid. If you sold the laptop for 600 that part is no longer worth 450.

Every time I contacted them they were no help. It is so frustrating. I am done with them. Any suggestions for a new printer?

Super 8

My wife and I were really looking forward to seeing this movie. We got to the theater 30 minutes early on opening day. There were 4 other people in the theater. By start time the movie filled up a bit but nowhere near full. This is more of a statement on movies in general and not Super 8.

The movie was produce by Amblin which brought us movies like E.T. and Goonies so I was expecting a movie that fell in that genre. It was for the first two thirds of the movie. The last third is not for young children.

It started with a way over the top train wreck which was interesting. Then the movie continued with a Goonies vibe. All the actors that played the kids were great. In fact, all the actors in the movie were great. I have alwasys liked Kyle Chandler starting way back when he was on the tv show Homefront.

The story was my issue in this case. The film was really well done. The beginning in the Goonies part of the movie was a great set up. The problem was it turned into more of a Cloverfield. It got too violent to stay in the Goonies genre. It felt like 2 different movies and it was a very abrupt ending. The monster felt like a cast off of Cloverfield too.

Overall I give it 3 out of 5 scooby snacks. It wasn't horrible, everyone should see it and you wont be upset you saw it.

MD Budget

The MD state government is raising taxes and fees all over the place this year. Why? They raised the budget 11.6%. I don't understand how they get away with it. As MD residents we need to vote these people out. I sent an email to my 4 congressmen asking them not to vote to raise any taxes. I got some very nice responses from the 3 delegates that represent me (Bromwell, Cluster and Bromwell) explaining their position. I was happy they took the time to reply to me.

My senator Katherine Klausmeier did what I have come to expect from politicians. This is her answer:

"I do the best job I can for the residents of District 8."

Why couldn't she take some time to answer my question? I hate when they talk to you in this matter. Shut up and take it. I know best and you are just my minion. Our state congress raised the budget 11.6% this year. How can they justify that in this economy? The answer is they can't. This needs to stop at some point. How many people in the state's wages went up 11.6%, very few. What justifies it?

I don't get it. Nobody is questioning them. Can't expect The Sun paper to say anything.

How about spending less? What a novel idea.
