Nothing motivates and encourages entrepreneurship like checking the top-10 Fortune 500 companies and reveling in those companies’ profits.

I mean, praise Jesus, Right?

Right.

I feel much better about hosing 13.6 gallons of gas into my car, just before getting home to my $1000s of dollars worth of Apple gear.

You know, I wouldn’t make my living if I weren’t able to trasport myself to jobs only to return home to use Apple computers to process and execute video and still imagery.

And hey, we have a job with one of the companies in the top 10 tonight. So that should feel good to receive liquid money from one of those guys.

To think, GM needed a bailout a few years ago.

We have a glorious country with glorious principles.

Honk. Honk.

The apostrophe wins! “Happy Mothers’ Day”!

Loving this New Yorker Mothers’ Day cover …

From the article about the cover:

Now that the numbers are in on same-sex marriage, many Republicans are falling like dominos all over themselves to express their support for something that only a few months ago they steadfastly claimed to stand against. They’ll probably soon claim that this is how they felt all along, and they were simply too hamstrung by politics to be able to say what they really meant. Well, okay. In the spirit of openheartedness and what life is really all about, I’ll go so far as to say that the fear of others may mask some deep-seated desire to understand, and maybe even to love. Because really, what is there to be afraid of? Few people today don’t know—or have in their families—at least one loving couple who are raising children, same-sex or not. And it’s really just the loving part that matters. That same-sex marriage could go from its preliminary draft of “diagnosable” to the final edit of “so what?” must indicate some positive evolution on the part of the larger human consciousness. My wife, being a biology teacher, puts it even more succinctly: “Why are all these people so worried about who everybody else is sleeping with, anyway?” (Score two for Moms.)

We all look forward to the day when certain religious folks dump their opposition to gay marriage, just like slavery, suffrage, and slamming babies against rocks.
