Did you know under the Obama administration if you and your spouse die the GOVERNMENT can decide who raises your kids????!!!!!! It’s true.
TB was reading this morning about the upcoming gender testing of a South African runner competing and setting all sorts of records as a woman. I ain’t gonna lie–lady looks like a dude. But there’s no way…..is there? Also, there is a growing movement to have male sprinter Usain Bolt tested. To see if he is human. I was listening to the Dan Patrick Show the other day and they were discussing a physicist’s conclusions on the capabilities of human speed in the 100 meters from the 1990’s. Last weekend Bolt ran faster than the physicist calculated was humanly possible.
I think one of the causes of the Republican party’s collapse from 2006-2008 was that they conclusively disproved widely held public understanding of their core strengths and their primary campaign talking points–strong national defense and fiscal restraint. I’m of the opinion that if the Democrats fail on health reform they will expose the same disconnect between rhetoric and action and will consequently suffer the same electoral fate. If they fail on reform this year, how can they effectively campaign on the issue in the future? They can’t. It seems to me they better figure out how to ram something worthwhile through Congress on their own right now and take a chance on losing in 2010 and 2012 instead of playing it safe this year and losing with certainty the next two rounds.
Sean Hannity is the latest to provide national exposure to a guest comparing the Obama administration to the Nazis. In the 1950’s, Eisenhower built the interstate highway system–similar to the Nazi construction of the German autobahns. In the 1980’s Reagan engaged in an unprecedented military buildup, not unlike pre-World War II Germany. I was wondering why there was no comparison in the political reporting of those days to the Nazis and no popular movement of citizenry taking the same leap of logic. I’ve given the question careful consideration, applied all my skills of deduction, assumption and knowledge and I’ve come up with this theory. Maybe people weren’t SO FREAKIN STUPID back then!
Mike Vick is coming back to the NFL. Some people are mad. Really pissed, actually. My view–he’s paid the price set by our society and there is no reason he shouldn’t be allowed to hold a job for which he is qualified. Then again, if I were the NFL or the Philadelphia Eagles I would keep him on a, um, short leash.
Brett Favre is coming back to the NFL. Some people are mad. I can’t figure out why.
I’ve got this story forming in my head. It’s about a wrestler. The “Greatest Wrestler In The World.” I’ll call him Andre the Monolith. He has a few allies, and I’m just making these names up off the top of my head–Hulk Smith, Randy “YMCA” Savitch, and Tiny Frazo. He’s a fan favorite. He has destroyed all challengers he’s ever faced–Mexican luchadors, Middle Eastern sheiks, American fairies and dozens more. His enemies list has grown through the years and the fans are sick of hearing about them. The fans want him to destroy all these posers once and for all. Hulk, et al, have warned him its a bad idea but Andre won’t listen. There is a big pay per view coming up and there’s gonna be a battle royal. But what if all the bad guys team up on Andre? He’s had a couple of narrow escapes in the past fighting two guys at once. There was even a draw or two when he was unable to catch up with a speedy little gnat. But Andre is stronger than ever. So it’ll be one against twenty, winner take all. I can’t decide how the story will end right now.
Oh, about that Obama controlling your kids thing at the beginning. That was just to get your attention. Really, the government has been able to decide who raises your kids under all Presidents, but only if you don’t have a will. So if you are a parent you ought to have a will, if for no other reason than to make your wishes plain on who you want to raise your kids if you and your spouse die. No joke here, just free, good advice. If you have questions just drop me a line. I’ll recommend a living will too–you know, one of those death panel documents Obama thinks you should have to keep a Senator from diagnosing you from the floor of Congress.
