Framing the Dialogue

If You Like It You Can Keep It

We have all come to learn that Barrack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and all of the other Demoncrats that wrote and pushed the Affordable Care Act (AKA ACA, Obamacare) down our throats lied.  The “grandfathered” plan was a hoax because they KNEW that very few plans could be grandfathered.  They continue the lie as they say “it’s not our fault that your insurance carrier no longer offers the plan that you liked” know full well that is not true.  The law was written to achieve exactly that.  I happen to work for an organization that has what can be described as a “Cadillac Health Plan” though to get it I accept a lower salary.  I don’t need a crystal ball to know that Obamaites are coming after me.  I am sure that I’ll be able to keep my plan…they’ll just tax the hell out of this benefit until I bleed.

Mike’d Up

No longer relegated to 60 Minutes or Dateline NBC to nab crooks, perverts, and household scammers.  Extra-ordinary citizens have become empowered to expose corruption and lies that the main stream media will not.   Perhaps the worst type of people are those who present a public image, but when the “cameras” are off they expose themselves among friends and like-minded people.  Sometimes the “cameras”, microphones, or even cell phones are still recording and I would like to celebrate those who venture to expose the true feelings of elitists.  The weird thing about Bill Clinton was that I always had this feeling that he was this type of person, but I have been shocked that there had never been a smoking gun tape showing this.  Either he is genuine or is really good…I feel that he is really good.

The Unfinished Sentence

I love Chinese food.  Sometimes it is an adventure trying some new food, but I have had great experiences as these restaurants.  A favorite part of the dining experience is getting the fortune cookie with the bill at the end of the meal.  I should clarify that I enjoy getting the cookie not the bill.  It can be fun sharing your fortune with your dining partners.

Over the years, I have collected some of my favorite fortunes even though many no longer are “fortunes.”  There is a game that you can play with your fortunes by simply adding the phrase “in bed” after you have read yours.  It certainly adds some humor to the meal, but you may NOT want to do this with work colleagues or young children.

Glenn Beck’s Common Sense

As I listened to  his program last week, Glenn and Stu were discussing, Glenn Beck’s Common Sense.  One thing that they were discussing grabbed me; our congressmen earn more than 95% of ALL American families.  In addition to the nice salary, they also provide themselves with such necessities as subsidized gym memberships, free parking in Washington, and even their own cafeterias.  These cafeterias are exclusive meaning you or I cannot eat there even though we are paying for it.  It is interesting that their salary always falls beneath any demagogued “rich” salary. 

Has Anybody Seen…

Has anybody here seen our old friend Harry?
Can you tell me where he’s gone?
He screwed a lot of people,
But it seems the pols. they hide now.
You know, I just looked around and he’s gone.

 

 

Anybody here seen our old friend Nancy?
Can you tell me where she’s gone?
She ticked off the CIA,
But it seems she just up and left town.
I just looked around and she’s gone.

 

 

Separated at Birth – Scarecrow/Pelosi

Scarecrow
I could while away the hours, conferrin’ with the flowers
Consultin’ with the rain.
And my head I’d be scratchin’ while my thoughts were busy hatchin’
If I only had a brain.
I’d unravel every riddle for any individ’le,
In trouble or in pain.
Dorothy
With the thoughts you’ll be thinkin’ you could be another Lincoln
If you only had a brain.
Scarecrow
Oh, I could tell you why The ocean’s near the shore.
I could think of things I never thunk before.
And then I’d sit, and think some more.
I would not be just a nothin’ my head all full of stuffin’
My heart all full of pain.
I would dance and be merry, life would be a ding-a-derry,
If I only had a brain.

Brush Back Pitch

The pitcher shakes off the sign from his catcher as the batter steps into the box.  He shakes off another sign and the catcher trots out to the mound to talk to his young pitcher.  The second baseman joins the discussion until the umpire calls for the game to resume.  Here is the stretch and the pitcher throws a fastball high and inside.  The batter has to leap backward to avoid being hit by the pitch.  The batter glares at the pitcher and says something to the catcher as he re-enters the box.

Pelosi’s Pernicious Peril

There is daily news implicating House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in the “scandal” over Enhanced Interrogation Techniques (EIT).  Rep. Pelosi (D-CA) had been a long-time opponent to EITs and the practice of water boarding in particular.  In an article that she wrote for Washington Monthly in March 2008, Pelosi (D-CA) was clear in her opposition to enhanced techniques.

“The use of torture violates fundamental American values. It damages the reputation of the United States in the eyes of the international community, and it increases the risks for our military personnel, diplomatic officers, and intelligence agents around the world. Many intelligence professionals have stated that torture is ineffective: it is unlikely to produce the kind of timely and reliable information needed to disrupt terrorist plots. The negative consequences of the use of torture far outweigh the supposed benefits.”

Cooper Should Make a 360 and “Come Out of the Closet”

The mainstream media (“MSM”) showed their true stripes again during their coverage of the hundreds of Tea Parties held yesterday.  When confronted with a true grass-roots effort to protest excessive taxation and what is turning into an ever intrusive federal government, the MSM fell back on their typical, tired playbook.  They tried to diminish the efforts of the planners and attendees like the elitists they are.

Over the years, Anderson Cooper had seemed to be different, but we probably saw the real Cooper yesterday.  During his coverage of the tea parties and in response to a statement from David Gergen about the Republicans needing to “find their voice,” Cooper made the smug, off-color statement:

It’s All Relative

We are family
I got all my sisters with me
We are family
Get up ev’rybody and sing

There has a roiling controversy in Pennsylvania’s control liquor sales system.  State government not only taxes the heck out of liquor and wines, it is the exclusive agent (Liquor Control Board or LCB) for the sale of said products.  Other than a limited number of outlets that can sell wine, if you want more than beer you have to visit a “State Store.”  They have since come up with a nicer name, but will always be State Stores to my generation.
