Burris on Blago: Before…and after

December 31, 2008

My how the wanna be senator Burris does wax poetic in expressing his dual feeling regarding Gov. Blago.  I guess this is another example of against him before he was with him.

Unfortunately, there is nothing shocking about this since it typifies the normal American politician.

Nothing to do about nothing

December 31, 2008

This post is only dedicated to my best friend who is leaving me to go overseas and live in London.  I am so happy that his dream is being realized.  I am equally sadden that we will no longer share the dark side, a knowing glance, an informative smile or a burst of trivia song expressing a multitude of meaning.

To my best bud I wish him well and that all that his move can grant him will be reached.  Though I am both sadden and happy I can only say you go dude and knock them dead.  We stay in contact via email and make the best of that.  No it will never replace the spontaneous hugs or glances and smiles but will have to be enough.  Especially until I get up off my butt and go and see him in London.

If ever two people were destined to be soulmates and forever friends that would be me and my very perfect buddy, Michael.

Much love and success to my special friend Michael.

Signing off Music: Alicia Keys – No One

December 31, 2008

For some reason, I had this song on my mind all day and when I took my girls out to eat for dinner this was one of the songs that was playing on the speaker system.

I knew then that this would be my signing out song.   Smooth, easy, refreshing, and filled with soul.  Doesn’t hurt that she’s one fine babe to look at.

Last Post of the Night: Paul Krugman on the Stimulus Package

December 31, 2008

Let’s take a minute and pause over the implications of Paul Krugman’s words.  So certain Republicans are planning to fight the stimulus package proposed by President Obama.  The fact that the RNC is showing that they are being childish at best, as they try to re-establish themselves is insulting enough.  They have no strategy or point to oppose the stimulus but want to gain some type of credibility?

My question is very simple. Why are these azz holes playing with real peoples lives over their failed ideology and principles?

What makes it worst is that even the Republican Governors are playing games as well.  We selected these people because of what exactly?

SHOCKER: John Bolton Would Invade Iran Now!

December 31, 2008

johnbolton_01Here’s a shocker.   JOHN BOLTON would attack Iran now. Why do we have to keep listening to this warmonger?  Oh, right he’s on Fox Fake News. Who else would give cause for America to enter a third war without taking into account America’s lack of money (economic meltdown) and troops (serious shortage) that is currently going on?

That’s right this is America, let’s just keep fighting everyone we don’t like.  There’s no need for diplomacy.  Let’s just pretend we can storm troop into Iran and fight them and take control.  Did I say Iran or did I mean Iraq?

Hm…I think I’ve seen this story played out before and it didn’t work out too well.   Now that Israel is considering a cease fire where do we go from here? Do we make some bogus CIA report, lying about Iran’s capabilities, take it to congress and the UN and declare war on Iran?  Then look back 5 years from now after 10 or 20 thousands Americans has been killed along with millions of innocent citizens to confront the fact that the war was a lie?

John Bolton’s kind of stupid needs to be stopped.  It is getting tiresome to listen to people living in bubbles.  Can somebody just get a pin and be done with this nonsense?

The Secret Strategy Behind Blagojevich’s Decision to Pick Roland Burris

December 31, 2008

The Blagojevich (“Blago”) saga continues to rage. Blago has turned into being the media’s story of the century. Never mine if the over playing of the

S. Whiplash

S. Whiplash

subject has some of us ready to shoot our TVs.

Now we are being presented with a strategy as to why Blago did what he did  —  picked someone to fill President-Elect Obama’s senate seat, Roland Burris.  Even after his own lawyer, Ed Genson,  said he would not being appointing any one.  I guess he lied.  Blago has now earned his place in history, right along with that dastardly villain S. Whiplash of Dudley Do Right.

The media will now be on the look out for all contributions made by Burris to Gov. Blago.  The media will tie the story up into a neat package of not one criminal but possibly two.  Hm… I’m sure most of the articles will come with the sinister insinuation of possible criminal activity, whether true or false.

Rod Blagojevich’s choice to fill Barack Obama’s Senate seat, Roland Burris, helped raise money for the governor on multiple occasions. [Read this nonsense here]

There’s sure to be room for a little racial tension as well; especially, since Burris is Black.

In a wild press conference where Gov. Rod Blagojevich introduced Roland Burris as the Senate-appointee to replace Barack Obama, congressman Bobby Rush came to the lectern and firmly offered a racial basis for seeing through the appointment. [Read more on this nonsense here]

None of the current chatter has made it easier for me to generate any real outrage, righteous or otherwise, over Balgo’s deceit.  I’ve become complacent over politicians being corrupt.  It did not faze the media, or me, when Ted Stevens got convicted and continued to run for his senate seat, why would we now get in a tizzy over Blago? It all seems par for the course of American politics.

TVA Coal Ash Sampling Trip

December 31, 2008

Just as can be expected, there is little being done to clean up the mess of the coal spillage in TN by the coal company. Why do we even bother to have the EPA? What is the point of such an agency? To protect the private investors of private companies?

That the city had the nerve to tell people that the water was safe is what is so disgusting. How in the hell can water that is filled with millions of pounds of toxic waste be deemed safe by any stretch of the imagination?

Of course now they are reporting that the water is not safe a full week later. The crap our current administration gets away with is absolutely scandalous and would make for a great movie if it wasn’t so real.
