That "Law" stuff only applies to the little people

Google founders fly out of Moffet Air Force Base. The base is currently leased to NASA, but it is still illegal to use it for private jets. It's called "misappropriation of Federal property". And no amount of wink wink nudge nudge "it's being used for RESEARCH purposes!" is going to change that.

But hey, that "law" stuff only applies to the little people. Or to pesky black preacher men asking inconvenient questions. It doesn't apply to, like, the people who really rule America, i.e. the handful of billionaires who control over half the wealth of America. Alrighty, then!

Badtux the "I like cake" Penguin


  1. I guess google decided "don't be evil" is just too damn inconvenient,

  2. Life is like a can of mixed nuts. The big ones work their way to the top. And you would also if you could, you would go from a jeep to a Hummer in a heartbeat if you had the money.

    It's only people like me that won't do that. :-)

  3. Uhm, no. I could afford a Hummer if I wanted one. In case you haven't noticed, I'm not short of money by any means (though a Hummer would stretch my budget). All the toys I've paraded past this blog were bought with cash, not credit (well, except the Jeep, but 0% financing is the same as cash in the end, just stretched out a bit). But a Hummer won't do what my Jeep will do.

    If I were replacing my Jeep, I'd get the new-model Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, which comes out of the box with all the stuff I had to put onto my current Jeep myself plus has ABS brakes and a better ride. ("Better" being a relative term here, heh!). But I'm going to wait a few years for that, because my current Jeep works just fine. I have it set up exactly the way I want it, with the possible exception of adding some way to carry a jerry can on the back.
