It's now almost 23 hours since my last post, and the temperature is 69 degrees.
MUCH better. Al Gore must've turned down the world's thermostat.
TZAAR arrived yesterday and boy, is it pretty.
Can't wait to break it in.
Barack Obama is saying that Republicans mentioning his wife in their campaign ads is "unacceptable".
Well, let's see. She's the one that said "[F]or the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country". So let's see. The billions of dollars in charity that the US sends around the world (including $15 billion to fight HIV in Africa) is nothing to be proud of. The advances we've made during her lifetime are nothing to be proud of, including ending segregation laws that helped her get an education. Yes, we still have a ways to go, but I think there's a whole damn lot to be proud of.
If she's going to speak for his campaign, she's fair game - just like Bill is fair game.
Speaking of Obama...
In Portland, OR Obama made the following statement at a political rally this weekend:
Since when is it necessary to have the approval of other countries over what we do? Am I going to have to go through some kind of international check list before I decide what to have for lunch, or how low I'm going to set my thermostat?
Silly me - the government (domestic and foreign) knows what's best for me. Never mind what I think.
And wow - Obama sure likes saying what behavior is "acceptable" and what isn't. The power...
Speaking of the government...
A listener on the Tom Leykis show told the following tale:
In Palmwood (I think), the city has raised the price of water on an almost monthly basis. They also have water rationing - you can't water your lawn too often, or it's a fine. But there's also a $1000 fine if your lawn turns brown because you haven't kept up your property.
Leykis suggested asphalt - turn the front lawn into a parking lot. The listener said he was considering a desert scene and just water the cactus once a year.
Kim Jong-il is close to declaring his nuclear programs.
But...but...I thought we talked him out of it! You mean he (gasp) didn't listen??
We just need to cut his strings.
In the Whatta Dumbass Dept.:
This guy in Fort Worth scratches his back and gets injured - because he scratched his back with a loaded revolver.
You can't make this stuff up.
That's all for today. More tomorrow, if the good Lord's willing and the creek don't rise.
Be seeing you.
