Good morning! Hope everyone gets out to enjoy the perfect forecast for the day. It’s another day with some random thoughts rolling around in my head…and some interesting stuff I’ve seen online already.
-If a Healthcare bill passes before the end of the year and it has a lot of “compromise”; did the President plan it that way…oversell the deadlines to motivate people and expect something less than Universal healthcare? Or, is this a victory for Republicans, reflecting the more conservative tendencies of the American electorate when it comes to spending money?
-If you are a public figure or have taken any oath to hold your job, you are going to be held to a higher standard. The problem is, when people take some of these jobs they come with some power. It’s power that makes people feel they no longer have to follow the rules, and can sometimes lead to bad decision making.
-If you ask me Colin Powell is an unimpeachable voice in American Politics. Discredit the guy all you like…I’m going to listen to the former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Former Secretary of State and an African American who’s lived through discrimination and succeeded. As usual, he’s said it right…both sides in the arrest of Prof Henry Gates should have found a way to back down and resolve the situation before it escalated.
–Tanning beds bad for you? Who saw that one coming???
Who knew putting yourself in the equivalent of an Easybake Oven would be bad?
I did…that’s why I still have like 20 hours of tanning on an account my roommate convinced me to open in Peoria. That’s 50 bucks I’ll never see again.
–This is another great article on the “Birthers” as they’re being called. Bad nickname. I’d drop the conspiracy theory just so people would stop calling me a “birther”.
-Bret Favre is not going top play for Minnesota this year…Really.
Thanks for giving Bears fans one more reason to Laugh at Minnesota and Green Bay.
-My golf trip is intact. We’re going to Orlando later in the year. Let me first say my wife saved this one for me and she continues to be the BEST WIFE EVER. I ave to give some props to the junior wives of this group. Many of them have also just delivered their first kids and are knee deep in diapers and burp cloths. They’re still letting their husbands participate in this five day golf marathon we go on every year and I am grateful. I imagine this year’s trip may have a slightly different tone. Sleep will be a priority.
