Itchy and Scratchy Show

GAH! I am itchy today. That word “Gah” is stolen from someone. I hate this ::scratch, itch, scratch:: My dental work is possibly finished. If nothing gets worse and the sore teeth get less sore, then that ordeal is over, leaving me $800 poorer, no thanks to the guy who hit me. Okay, about $165 […]

Interesting Video

The video starts off with “If you’re one in a million in China, there are 1300 people exactly like you” and moves on to “The top 25% of India’s population with this highest IQs exceeds the population of the US” The music is really irritating so you might wish to turn it down a bit, […]

Crashing Airplanes and Obama

First, a little bit on the USAir crash into the Hudson. I had mentioned how fascinating the video of the actual crash was and many of my friends said “Video? There’s VIDEO?” There is, indeed a video of the plane gliding in for a perfect landing in the river as well as the ferries coming […]

Sarah Palin Loves Turkey because, I suppose, she IS one

Everyone hates Sarah Palin. At least I do, and that’s all that matters. I’m telling you this because you should know there’s bias here. Lots of it. In spades. But this video was sent to me by one of her fans. Says quite a lot about the sort of person who actually likes her. The […]

More Election Thoughts and Detailed Analysis

In my previous post, I said and now, we boldly go into a new future for America, Americans, and the World. I want to throw lots of stats out to show you what the world things. I have mentioned before that I subscribe to The Economist, a decidedly stodgy old conservative British publication. They opened […]

Barack Obama: President Elect. Congratulations!

Congratulations to President-Elect Barack Obama for winning a decisive, historic victory. The electoral college will show a huge win. The popular vote will show otherwise — it’s pretty close like the last two elections. Less than 10% is still close, but it is a mandate by the people and a sign that it’s time for […]

Just More Stuff

A few people have asked about my jokes list. If you’re not on it, it’s here. I will warn you that at some point you will be offended and your complaint about it will fall on deaf ears. My elliptical exercise machine arrived today. My exercise bike is now redundant. I will begin using it […]

Some Thoughts

The Beatles’ song is still in my head, “Beep, beep, yeah!” for reasons I shan’t share, but will continue to tease you all with. It occurred to me today that many of you enjoy my political postings, though maybe you don’t agree.   I gave money to the Obama campaign recently. As some polls show […]

Dictator for Life

A number of my friends have told me I should be President and that I’d be good at the job. I deeply appreciate the sentiment from those deluded fools’ friends. Actually, I accept their theory as plausible, but I must reject it because: Anyone who wants to president must, by definition, be an idiot You […]

Our Country’s Financial Crisis: My Views

Why do my friends ask me about the current financial meltdown of the US economy? I don’t know but there certainly are a lot of them. I get calls, emails, and other such entreaties for my opinion. First, the quick answer: is it’s the fault of the current administration. That is the failed economic policies […]
