Swinging Down Memory Lane.
So right now I am listening to KOMA out of Oklahoma City. The venerable oldies station is by far one of the best things things to come out of Oklahoma (though there isn't much else good that has ever come from there) and it provided my entertainment for two years when I lived in Wayne Nebraska. I spent two years bored off my ass lying in bed listening to KOMA wondering if it was all worth it. Now I know it was but it wasn't. I was doing the right thing for all the wrong reasons. It also brings to mind one of my favorite things to do that I hardly ever do any more. Lie in the dark or with candles and listen to music coming from radio stations from anywhere but home. I can't explain the appeal of it but my brother also loved to do the same thing. I got it from him. I think it's because we both prefer the darkness and listening to out of town stations allowed us to travel with out leaving. It just brings to mind my thoughts on TV. I love TV...but we have definitely lost something because of it.
I Hate... I Mean Really Fucking Hate... Brett Favre.
Here's a riddle. What brings more enjoyment...The orgasm Brett Favre gives the media or the orgasm Brett Favre gets from the media? NOBODY has ever got off more from hearing his name on TV than this son of a bitch. He's retiring now he isn't. He's calling a press conference to say nothing. Now he's retired now he's coming back. Oh look there's his wife hawking her book and there is his Mamma. This guys has to be the total story and the media being blinded by their lust for him doesn't see just how self centered this son of a bitch is. Fuck you Brett Favre just fucking go away. Where your Wranglers, Mow your own fucking lawn and stuff your Wife's vibrator with Rayovac batteries but just fucking go away. One last thing. If Green Bay bends over for this clown again if I were Aaron Rodgers I would demand to be traded.
Get Used To It Barack.
Barack Obama is dumbfounded by the media reaction to statements he made about Iraq...
ST. LOUIS - celebrated "active faith" as an obligation of religious Americans and a chief agent of societal change while speaking Saturday to a nearly all-black roomful of churchgoers, but hoping to reach far beyond them.
Earlier in the day as he flew from Montana to Missouri, Obama told reporters he was surprised at how the media has "finely calibrated" his recent words on Iraq, and reaffirmed his commitment to ending the war if elected.
Don't know why he is surprised by the media's reaction to anything he says but I'll let him in on a little secret (Ok unlike a certain crazy right wing blogger I DO NOT actually believe Obama has read anything I have written.) But don't be surprised by the reaction to anything you say about anything. They are committed 100% to getting John McCain elected president. I do have one question for Obama however. Why are you campaigning to be the next Bush? Jeez even John McCain who IS the Next Bush isn't running as the next Bush. Why would you?
One note the Hillary supporters who are not going to vote or are going to vote for McCain...Fuck You!
Even The Optimist Can't Really Think Of Any reason To Be Optimistic.
Even folks in the Optimist Club are having a tough time toeing an upbeat line these days. Eighteen members of the volunteer organization's Gilbert, Ariz., chapter have gathered, a few days before this nation's 232nd birthday, to focus on the positive: Their book drive for schoolchildren and an Independence Day project to place American flags along the streets of one neighborhood.
They beam through the Pledge of Allegiance, applaud each other's good news — a house that recently sold despite Arizona's down market, and one member's valiant battle with cancer. "I didn't die," she says as the others cheer.
But then talk turns to the state of the Union, and the Optimists become decidedly bleak.
They use words such as "terrified," "disgusted" and "scary" to describe what one calls "this mess" we Americans find ourselves in. Then comes the list of problems constituting the mess: a protracted war, $4-a-gallon gas, soaring food prices, uncertainty about jobs, an erratic stock market, a tougher housing market, and so on and so forth.Really I don't know why anybody would be surprised. When we gave Bush four more years couldn't you see this happening? Hell any country that elects the people we elect deserves the mess we are in. This just makes me scratch my head even more when I see and hear Obama go down the "I'm more like Bush than you realize path" At a time when Americans have less faith about everything it's not a good
time to say you want more faith based bullshit.
'Till next time.
Fuck Brett Favre.
