Jesus Take the Wheel

A couple of things have been on my mind the last few days with news and such. I waited patiently for details on the economic stimulus package before speaking on it and I'm annoyed about much of what is included.

I'm just trying to figure out how millions going towards teen STDS creates jobs? I definetly support tax cuts for small businesses and working Americans. I also believe there should be another one time stimulus check for Americans. I realize this didn't work with President Bush but now people are definetly hurting and will surely spend the money. I support federal money to build infastruture. That puts people to work as well as making the nation better. On the other hand some of this other crap is simply put, ridiculous. $400 Million for Global Warming? Are you insane? $2.4billion on Carbon Capture projects? What the hell is that???? That does not stimulate the economy. NO! There is entirely too much environmental humbug in this "stimulus package". Those things are definetly worthy but they should be considered in a separate bill! $650 Billion for digital tv conversion coupons? NUTS! $150 million for the Smithsonian and $1 Million for Amtrak???? INSANE!!!If it's costing money SELL IT. It's been losing money for 40 years! Let the private industry run it. There are billions for increasing foodstamps, childcare, medicare. All that having absolutely nothing to do with increasing the economy! Okay, done with this subject. NEXT!

Ervin Lupoe needs to come back to life so we can put him in front of a firing squad and shoot him again. If you have no idea who Mr. Lupoe is. He and allegedly, his wife are the two idiots who lost their jobs last week following an investigation at Kaiser Permanente. They decided (Mr. Lupoe left a suicide note), that they no longer have anything to live for and did not want to leave their children behind so they killed their children and themselves!

A man fatally shot his wife, five young children and himself Tuesday after he faxed a note to a TV station claiming the couple had just been fired from their hospital jobs and together planned the killings as an escape for the whole family. “Why leave our children in someone else’s hands,” Ervin Lupoe wrote in a letter posted late Tuesday on the KABC-TV Web site. Officers rushed to the home in Wilmington, a small community between the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, about 8:30 a.m., apparently within minutes of the killings.

Officers could still smell the gunshot residue in the air. A revolver was found next to his body. Ana Lupoe’s body was found in an upstairs bedroom with the bodies of the couple’s twin 2-year-old boys. The bodies of an 8-year-old girl and twin 5-year-old girls were found alongside Ervin Lupoe’s in another bedroom. All were shot in the head, coroner’s Assistant Chief Ed Winter said. Kaiser Permanente Medical Center West Los Angeles released a statement confirming both Lupoe and his wife had worked there; both were medical technicians. The letter indicated that Lupoe and his wife had been under investigation for misrepresenting their employment to an outside agency in order to obtain childcare.

If grown people wanna off themselves because life gets a little tough, that’s their decision, but taking the children is where the line needs to be drawn. The whole thing is terrible, but the mother participating in it makes it all that much worse. Here's a thought idiot. Go buy yourself a life insurance plan and then drive your car off a cliff and kill yourself since you are an obvious coward. At least your KIDS can have a good life. We've all gone through hard times. Keep it moving or move out of the way so your kids can grow up and be productive citizens. Do you honestly think you'll be with them doing the angel dance in heaven after you commit murder and suicide? There has got to be something in the water lately...gggrrrrr

On a side note - I'm not completely frustrated with life. My insomnia seems to be subsiding. With the new year I've realized that life is too short to be unhappy and unsatisfied. In the word of Andy Dufresne "Get busy living, or get busy dying". I've realized that I have so much more to offer and I am "needed". God had to turn the world upside down in order for us to realize that we needed CHANGE. I'm very excited in what the future has in store.


  1. The desperation across this country right now is really something that will be remembered and talked about to my children someday, you know? It's tough out there. I know a lot of families that are struggling to eat; struggling to live. Also though, there are alot of people saying they're hurting, but when you're out buying new clothes, electronics, and still carrying that Coach bag, I don't want to hear about it. That part is frustrating.

    That guy is a douche; hope he rots in hell--her too. I feel sorry for his babies. :*(

    Have a better day!


  2. I didn't here about this. Now I am so mad about this !@#$%^&*()*& jerk. It never ceases to amaze me when people kill their whole family. It just adds insult to injury and it is selfish. I wish I could be there before they did it and could read their minds and tell them to just go to the Golden Gate bridge and jump by themselves.

  3. That whole mess with the Lupoe's is astonishing... I can't fathom how they could be that hopeless and deluded and selfish that they would justify killing their children along with themselves. I hope that kids in the area that see that on the news aren't all having nightmares that mommy and daddy are going to lose it and kill them all.

    Times are tough, but I am with you on the whole "change" thing and how it is going to be hard to get through, but the world needs it.

    Love your thoughts and it is awesome to see a blog that addresses political concerns. :)

    And, guess what?? YOU JUST WON THE SEPHORA $50 GIFT CARD!!!! Congrats and email me your details at amysprite@yahoo.com and I'll get you all set up. Thank you so much for hanging out at my blog and commenting. I really appreciate the support and words!

  4. Wow - really great post. I'm with you on the stimulus package. I'm afraid no matter what "side" you're on, someone always wants to get their project greenlighted, no matter how they sneak it in.

    And that family in California - sad, all the way around. The whole murder/suicide thing, should start with the suicide first.

    (over from Amy - congrats on the $50 to Sephora!! Now, go stimulate the economy!) Em
