How would you like to have been sitting in the food court when this started?

It’s in New York, and I am sure I saw at least one Jewish person singing!

I Am Not Surprised November 19, 2010

Is anyone surprised that the government that gave us sexually invasive airport pat downs and pornographic x-ray scans of traveling people now is trying to convince us that Irish coffee is … (wait for it) … toxic?!

Well, I’m not.

This just in: “Survey: 1 in 5 U.S. Adults Face Mental Illness. Government Research Finds 45M Americans Experienced Some Form of Mental Illness in 2009; Most Didn’t Get Treatment”

OK, so how many U.S. adults work in the Obama government? Divide that by five, and send in the folks in white coats.

Leave Me Out, Please November 19, 2010

The lawyer for the House Ethics Committee (oxymoron though that is) said that censure of Rep. Charlie Rangel, Harlem, the most severe punishment short of expulsion from the House, is appropriate. The panel had weighed whether to recommend censure or a reprimand, a less severe penalty. Both censure and reprimand are symbolic: publicly shaming the offending lawmaker on the House floor. Neither carries legal repercussions.

So without legal repercussions, they are inadequate. Lying, cheating, stealing and ignoring tax laws deserves expulsion from the House and significant prison time. Letting Rangel off with a pat on the wrist is itself unethical.

Why don’t these people acknowledge that?

I’ll tell you why: Because they are each as corrupt, as dishonest, and as unethical as Charlie Rangel is!

And who do they claim to be entertaining here? Yes, entertaining. Surely they know that we realize that they aren’t SERVING anyone.

Why, us of course! You and me.

Do Them One Better November 16, 2010

Patrick Caddell with someone named Douglas Schoen wrote that Obama should announce now that he won’t seek a second term.

Caddell worked for Democratic presidential candidates George McGovern in 1972, Jimmy Carter in 1976 and 1980, Gary Hart in 1984, Joe Biden in 1988, and Jerry Brown in 1992. He probably won’t be working for Obama anytime soon.

So, if announcing after two years that he won’t run in the future is good…

… wouldn’t resigning now be better?

What’s the downside?

I know, I know, I mean BESIDES the VP.

From Crosswalk.com:

Three sons left home, went out on their own and prospered. They discussed the gifts they were able to give their elderly mother.

The first said: “I built a big house for our mother.”

The second said: “I sent her a Mercedes with a driver.”

The third said: “You remember how our mother enjoys reading the Bible. Now she can’t see very well. So I sent her a remarkable parrot that recites the entire Bible. It took elders in the church 12 years to teach him. Mama just has to name the chapter and verse and the parrot recites it.”

Soon thereafter, their mother sent out her letters of thanks.

“Milton,” she said, “the house you built is so huge. I live only in one room, but I have to clean the whole house.

“Gerald,” she said, “I am too old to travel. I stay most of the time at home so I rarely use the Mercedes. And that driver is so rude!”

“But Donald,” she said, “the little chicken you sent was delicious!”

Bits and Pieces November 4, 2010

In 2005, I worked on a contract in Greenville, NC, for the American branch of the Dutch pharmaceutical corporation, DSM. A quick job in a sleepy little southern town. This weekend, my alma mater, the U.S. Naval Academy, will play football against East Carolina University in their home town, Greenville, NC. The university will broadcast the game to me for “only” $9.95. Looks like some savvy Northerners got in there recently and taught the good ol’ boys how to make a buck.

New subject: I received one email and sent another today using Microsoft Outlook. In each case, Outlook screwed up the attachments. I think it was more accurately labeled under Microsoft’s original name: “Look Out”.

Some good things are happening here: moving on to a new assignment; IRA funds withdrawal due today; and my Navy son and his family are moving in to their new home in Virginia today, having flown out of Hawaii last Monday! I intend to drop in on them soon. The nice thing about the trailer: they don’t need to worry about where to put me!

POST SCRIPT: Navy beat ECU 76-35. That is embarrassing to me. I am inclined to apologize for this lack of sportsmanship. When the outcome is projected to be that one sided, honorable coaches put in the second or third string, both to gain experience and to allow the losers to save face. We apparently have no honorable coaches, and we have trained a Navy football squad to be merciless. I’m sorry.
