Thoughts Without Posts #6

This is a continuation of the post I do for notes that I have made but did not make it into a full fledged post…questions, insights, musings and rants….

1–When did instant coffee become ready brew coffee?

2–Politicians playing politics during a national disaster should be arrested and immediately stripped of there ranking in Congress or whatever organization they are employed in….

3–Conservs are the ones that bitch and moan the most about big government and creeping socialism…..yet they bitch and moan that the government should be controlling the oil spill clean-up…..this is why I have the problem with conservs….they seldom stick to what they bitch about…

4–Meg Whitman, Repub candidate for governor of California has spent $80 million in her campaigning…..think about that for a minute….$80 million to win control of a bankrupt state…is her ego really worth $80 million?  BTW, $68 million of that is her own money.

5–The media is abscessing on the Sestak thing, where the admin offered him Dept. of Navy if he would not run against Specter…..that type of thing happens all the time…why is it so much a story now?  Looks they want to set the agenda for the news cycle……

6–for months now the media has been killing Senate majority leader Reid in his re-election attempt…saying that he was all but dead politically…..oops they may have been wrong….

He trails Lowden (42-39%) and Tarkanian (42-41%), but he leads Angle, 42-39%. In mid-April, he trailed Lowden, 47-37%, and he trailed Tarkanian by 11 points the last time the two were matched up head-to-head, in late Feb.

7–More on Sestak…..someone in the GOP needs to tell these people to shut up…I mean Cheney’s secret meeting with oil companies could be construed as inappropriate and worthy of an investigation…..it is all so much waste of time….move on to the important things…..

8–Fergie is pissing in her corn flakes, but this is just too good to pass up……

With how much she’s been in the news lately, is it any surprise that the already-disgraced Duchess of York is now in the middle of her very own sex scandal? In its “bombshell report,” creatively titled “Fergie slept with rich men for ca$h,” the Globe claims Sarah Ferguson got $450,000 for sleeping with two oil tycoons. Of course, if you want the details (we’d like to know why she’s raking it in but still broke), you’re going to have to buy a copy of the tab.

I like red heads but so far I have not seen one worth that price tag for sex….sorry  Fergie!

9–Recent a crony of GW Bush said, “History will sort the Bush presidency out”…thinking……would that be the same history that leaves Jefferson out of the history books or maybe the same as relabeling the slave trade as “A Triangle trade”…my point is it will be left up to who writes the history…you can bet your butt that it will be a revisionist…..

2010 Easter Comment

The year is speeding along…seems like yesterday I was wishing everyone a Happy New Year….and look…in a blink it is Easter…..

First, do you know what I am giving up for Lent?……..(pause)…..Nothing!…I am not a Catholic……..

I would like to once again to thank my readers for their participation….they make the hours of reading and research all that worthwhile………a special thanx to Quin, Terrant and Chris……I appreciate all the thought provoking comments….

I wish that everyone have a great day and enjoys family, friends and food….I am taking a short pause from the mental masturbation and I will be back Monday……

Random Thoughts

As a regular feature, these are my notes that did not make it into a post and want to get feedback from my readers.

1–What the hell is “cross wheel drive”?

2–I have an idea of Time magazine.  Make the” Man Of The Year”–the CREDIT CARD.  It can symbolize the economic crisis which is all about the credit and its influence on the population.

3–If the Big 3 go bust and you have a car under warranty you will be screwed.  Under bankruptcy all obligations are terminated and a warranty is an obligation.  Merry Christmas!

4–During this Xmas season, take a look at the presents you buy and receive–how many of them were made in the US?  Very few.  We are no longer a manufacturing country, but a nation of consumers.

5–Dell computers has outsourced their tech support to India, but if you would like to talk to someone in the US–it will cost you $12.95 a month.  Not bad, charge people to talk to an American…now that is a great idea!  (sarcasm intended)

6–How would someone do something illegal and then post it on youtube or facebook?

7– Congress will be getting a pay raise when the new Congress convenes in January.

8–A kidnapping expert in Mexico has been kidnapped…..sorry but that is just damn funny!

Random Thoughts

This has become a regular feature, that is notes that I have taken that have not yet made it into a post.  I make a lot of notes daily on the news and such and just cannot always find the time or space to make a post.  So I offer them to my readers for their comments.  Have fun!

1–Economic indicators–credit defaults rising; Housing falling

Govt food programs helped 11.9 million in 2007 and in 2008 it has risen to 29.5 million.

2–did you guys know that for every $1 of food stamps that is used, it generates $1.73 in economy activity?

3–Did you know that AIG will use bailout cash to rennovate esec offices and save the exec buffet?

4–Corporate layoffs up 148% over ’07.

5–Splenda–taste like sugar, made from sugar but not sugar—thinking–plastic is made from oil, but it is still a petroleum product….so what is Splenda.

6–GM is worth about $3 billion and they want a loan of $12 billion–not a bad deal—could you get a deal like that on your house?

7–How can the media blame the baby boomers for the economic crisis…why?…they try to blame them for everything that has gone wrong lately.

8–More bad news–Food Stamp program will be up by at least 17% this year.

Why Do They Keep Injecting Race?

The media that is.

As the Obama team rolls out their picks for the various position the media reports on it by stated that “She will be the first African-American to hold the position”  Or that he will be the first African-American in the AG’s office.  Or…well you get the idea……

This past election has proven that most Americans have moved past the race thing, but somehow the media has to keep injecting it into the conversation.  Why?

I realize that the media thinks at most of us mortals are ignorant dolts,  but I do not think that most of us need their unsolicited help.  We are a visually aided society and I think that most Americans can determine what a persons ethnic origins are.  Well, I guess there are some that will need assistence in this area, but most of us can do it all by ourselves.

May I suggest that it is time to let that crap go.  Time to move on and report the news and stop the commentaries.
