M is for Macy pulls T-shirts, as reported from aol....

I thought this article was interesting about t-shirts that are made in Mexico and were going to be sold in New York, but then they were pulled after being considered offensive. I don't know about that, I mean we're allowed to sell what we want, but customer pressure drives that decision.

anyway you can check out the article here. Underneath the brown t-shirt pic are several others you can read that have various "funny" sayings on them regarding people from Mexico. Regardless of which issue the shirts make you consider, I can appreciate that they are not from some Anti-Illegal immigrant group, but by a Mexican company sort of laughing at the situation themselves. And that's what the Illegal Immigration issue is in this county anyway, a big joke.
Are we a nation of laws, or have we declined to being no better than other countries with corrupt governments and miserable human rights.... and this includes China.
Actually I wish I had the balls to wear the shirt that says "I is for Illegal". I think that's hilarious, but wearing that shirt would probably be seen as an aggressive statement around OKC. I don't know. Basically i just like making the point that for all the amnesty and mercy and sympathy that Illegal immigrants are given, the fact is that breaking a law is still breaking a law...

(all this talk about illegal immigration reform, when the only thing that we really need is enforcement of employment laws that already exist. If the jobs are not here, they won't be trying so hard to come here. This is not a bad thing, I realize there are many more opportunities in this rich nation, but if there are no jobs and poor economy and corruption in Mexico, then the people should stay and take a stand and try to make a change. alright enough already, what do I know....)

just check out the t-shirts and someone comment, funny? offensive? and to who?.......

anyone have this camera or seen it used before?

I think I might get this camera from Amazon tomorrow, it's $125 there. THis looks like a quick easy no nonsense way to capture video and get it to the computer. You can check out the Flip Video website here.

Paul Rudd is on letterman, and does anyone else think he's sort of like really hot as he's gotten older?

good week so far, I have a final tomorrow morning and then no more summer class!! sweet!

then Thursday morning I'm flying up to grand rapids MI. shoudl be some fun, I am hoping my buddy and his wife get me out to a lake while I'm up there.

I taking the girl to SNOW PATROL next week. we confirmed it at work today. I'm still taking it as a getting to know you as a friend deal, although I got to say we've been awful flirty at work this week. just a little bit.

I was watching this spanish music video and it really got me thinking how I"d love to be part of the fantasy world in the video. basically just lots of hot latino guys and girls hanging around looking hot and some hot guy singer in front etc etc.. but I couldn't help how hot it'd be hanging out with those people and getting to lay on top of some girl and have a lot of fun, and also maybe hang out iwth the dudes also, some making out or rolling around etc.... so dumb, I know. But I will prolly be saving that idea for tomorrow morning for some alone time... he he

btw Thanks to the readers leaving the b-day comments. I had an EXCELLENT weekend while away, my college buddies and their wives, and some of the new very young college girls in town working at the coffee shop. getting a hair cut from my same college barber. not to mention the extremely awesome Harry Potter 5 movie, yeah I'll admit it I loved it. ha

back to studying........
