I think I hate politics and politicians….I can’t believe that we have such crushing problems facing our nation (if we believe the television pundits)–problems like a huge debt with two warring political parties refusing to compromise to buy us some time, a lack of jobs is other parts of the country and neither political party has even a tiny clue about what to do except point fingers at each other; and companies sitting on vast amounts of cash and refusing to hire people because they want to force the politicians to give them even more tax breaks. And guess what our politicians are doing? Why they are tsk, tsking over Rep. Weiner’s wienie. Are you believing this?
What I find interesting is that most of the states that are having such budgets problems now and are solving it by taking money away from our next generation in the form of stealing money from their respective education systems. Most of those states received stimulus funds which were supposed to be used to create jobs by funding “shovel-ready” projects, but most of them spent that stimulus money to balance their own budgets that year. Our own governor, Gov. Good Hair did that and then bragged in television ads when he was running for reelection that Texas had a surplus. How could we have had a surplus when he was running against Kay Bailey and now we are so broke that thousands of teachers are going to be laid off and class sizes will be increased to over 35 students per room? Still no buyer’s remorse.?
I been telling you’ll…..I’ve maintained for three years that Sarah Palin is just plain dumb. I’m not sure she really passed elementary school. Here she was in the Paul Revere Museum and when asked a question about Paul, she flubbed it completely. I’m sure some of her defenders will claim “Gotcha Journalism,” but remember she was in the Paul Revere Museum. Didn’t she absorb anything just standing around there?
That lady is dumb. Cute, but dumb.
Car 54, where are you?….No, really, where are you. The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Department has a new communication system that just doesn’t work. Nobody knows where Car 54 is, and no body knows when they will know.
And I’m not sure I want it to work anyway. The new communication system works on a Visual Data Terminal. The county cops won’t be communicating with each other via radio anymore. They will be texting.
So you will have this county mountie barrelling down the road and rather than getting his information from a radio, he has to look at a little tv screen mounted in his car to communicate.
I know this is the new era and I need to join the 21st century, but I’m just saying…..Don’t admonish me about texting and driving and be doing it yourself. (I can never text and drive because I just can barely do either one–even one at a time.) Most people who ride which me spend their time issuing sometimes not so silent screams and slamming their own feet against the floor to emulate brake work. And I won’t even tell you what part of my anatomy I’m accused of using when I call people on my cell phone texting device at inappropriate times–like 3 a.m.
There are two types of women….I’m convinced there are two types of women. Those that put on more make-up as they age, and those that put on less. I belong to the latter class.
I noticed that very recently I used to put on eye liner, shadow, and mascara, in addition to the usual blush and lipstick. Lately, I’ve skipped the eye liner and shadow. At my age, I just can’t improve very much any more. So today I caught myself leaving the house without mascara. Is lipstick next?
FYI, apropos of nothing: Michele Bauchmann had on very noticeable (if you are on the lookout) false eyelashes in the New Hamsphire GOP debate. Let’s see: she reads, is a teapartyer, and wears makeup. Except for the reading part, we’re seeing a Sarah Palin wannabe.
