Spinning....

Reference (Just one of many such stories)

So....basically...the Democrats overspent by $857 Billion dollars on the completely unfounded assumption that they would be able to raise taxes to cover it.

Then they try to blame Republicans (who are not yet in control of either house, btw), who are just doing what they have always done.

They do this by assuming that taxes should be raised (read: more of your money should be stolentaken), and then calling anything less than that a "tax cut" and "adding to the deficit".

Does anyone else see the insanity here?

Go-Kart Racing...

Last night, we had a company Christmas party at the Driven Raceway, recently opened here in Fairfield.

We had the facility to ourselves for two hours, and another hour after that where the public was allowed back in.

We had open snack bar and free games (it's also an arcade) the whole time (the public didn't!), and pizza afterward.

This was seriously one of the most awesome times I've had in a long time. :)

The karts go up to 45 mph, and each race is 17 laps. I raced four races, and won them all and I put up a best lap time of 18.959. Ok, so I didn't exactly win the last race, but that was one with the public involved, and I got fourth. I did, however, beat everyone from our company, so I count that as a win, too. :)

Anyway, if you are in Fairfield looking for something to do, Driven Raceway is definitely great fun to consider!
