Don't forget to click the header.
Here's an odd start:
A linguistics professor was lecturing to his class one day.
"In English," he said, "a double negative forms a positive. In some languages, though, such as Russian, a double negative is still a negative. However, there is no language where in a double positive can form a negative."
A voice from the back of the room said, "Yeah, right."
Believe it or not, that one got me thinking. Not about our weird English. Nope. Got me thinking about the double negatives involved in our country's strange political arenas. Sometimes I wonder about whether I've lost my mind or am about to lose it. (I heard that, Buck.)
Ahem. We have elected (for good or evil, take your choice) a man who claims to want change. So he is going to take the troops out of Iran. And put them in Afghanistan.
And he wants all Americans to get $800 to help bail out American companies by going on a buying spree. Well, maybe $300 each. Perhaps $250 would be better. But billions to companies like Fannie Mae, AIG, etc., etc., so they can give their employees multi million dollar bonuses. Well, okay, I guess. (I must have missed that curve. But I have some knowledge about when I'm being screwed. Honest.)
He wants to fight a border war with Mexican thugs, but he also wants to take our guns away so we can't defend ourselves against their savagery. That would be a change.
The One says is visiting many places in the world (where he can bow his head in obeisance). That's very definitely change.
Now, here's a possible change that may occur to the One:
"ABC News says Americans spend $300 billion every year on games of chance, and that doesn't even include weddings and elections." For all I know, he may be rubbing his hands together, remembering that Indian tribes did not give him a really warm welcome. So is it possible he will nationalize all casinos in the U.S? That would be a change.
************************************************************************************ Here's some change from New Mexico: Prisoners riot over sausage "Prisoners rioted at a jail in New Mexico after being told they would be allowed only one sausage each at dinner. Inmates of the Lee County Prison started fires, broke toilets and smashed windows, reports the Hobbs News Sun. Officials said the prisoners began yelling and banging on their doors in what they described as a "temper tantrum." Officers from the Lea County Sheriff's and Hobbs Police departments were called in to restore control, and the jail was locked down after the incident. Warden Jann Gartman said 33 prisoners were involved in the disturbance. The remaining 300-plus prisoners at the jail accepted the meal without incident, authorities said."
I include this because we seem to want to take better care of our law breakers than our seniors and children. Perhaps that should change?
Again, considering change, has the One forgotten this? Have you and I?
How about the change in the One's taxes?
And here's a change: Obama has resurrected the Dead. The Grateful Dead, that is. Well, all except Jerry Garcia.
Yeah, right....

1773 - 2009 Same Party, Same Result?

The header is ready this time (I hope). We could use a few thousand women like her. A Tea Party is about to be held. But not just in Boston. Apparently, all over the U.S. (Canadians are welcome to join in) and possessions. ************************************************************************************ Here's a link to a page (or two): We can't remind King George now, but there is an elitist who should react. I'm mailing my tea bag. Guess I'm a trouble maker. But Americans need to be frightened about the roads we seem to be embarking upon. More to come.
