I Believe: 8.26.08

I believe:

  • Instant is not.
  • Democracy only works for the majority.
  • A siesta is a wonderful thing.
  • Any diet that requires a special shake or powder is not going to work.
  • Home equity loans help you to keep paying for your house.
  • Saying “I heard it on NPR” afterwards does not make it a fact.
  • Spending less money equals a pay raise.
  • Tattoos are stickers for adults.
  • Lipbalm should be a controlled substance. Everyone I know is addicted to it.
  • If you’re gonna walk slow, move to the side.
  • Insurance is a misnomer. It should be called Partial Reimbursement After the Fact.
  • Most things described as green aren’t.
  • A pickle is a waste of a perfectly good cucumber.
