Eric and the Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad Day

May the gods have mercy on me.. Yesterday was so horrible that I made a rage comic about it.

And that was just the beginning! I went home and we were doing the podcast and right in the middle our phone line went dead!

I had to race up to Ella’s to use their free WiFi to let the other guys on the podcast know what happened and that they should finish without me and then I got home and everything looked like it was working okay and I went back on Skype and then our internet blinked off and then back on again and I was like “That’s it, I’m outta here.”

So I called AT&T and they were like “everything looks fine on our end” and I say “well it’s NOT” and she was all “oh wait this diagnostic test I decided to run says there may be something wrong on our end. Or maybe it’s a problem with your setup that suddenly decided to be wrong after five years of working flawlessly. We’ll send a guy out between 8 AM and 8 PM. Just sit at home and wait for him.”

So now I’m just sitting here waiting for him.

Did I already post this? Well it’s pretty good either way. (Yeah, I’m sick of dubstep too. Focus on the video editing.)

Rick and Ron on the Union

This is a FILE photo.

So apparently former Texas Governor Rick Perry is running for President. The man is fascinating for many reasons, but the one I think most important to point out here is that he once suggested Texas might secede from the union.

That seems like kind of a big deal. Seems like one of the most important questions we should ask ourselves about a potential leader of the nation is: “Do you believe the nation should remain united as a nation?” Of course most of us would never ask this question because the answer in almost all cases is “Duh, yes!”

But it seems that Perry isn’t the only Republican candidate who feels this way. When Perry’s comments caused such a commotion in April 2009, Rom Paul said the following:

I’m receptive to the principle of secession. You should have the right to leave.

So, to review: Two Republican candidates for President of the United States think it’s okay is states want to leave the union. God Bless America! (Or at least God Bless those who wish to stick around and remain part of America. The rest of you — you know, whatever. Do your thing.)

UPDATE: I can’t support Rick Perry, but this ad makes a good case for Rick Parry.
