Trash Cash

 I found this dollar this afternoon sitting in a puddle of water in a parking lot. I don't know about you but I CAN'T STAND litter bugs so I picked up this dollar and put it in my back pocket. After drying it out I'm confident that this discarded trash dollar cash will be almost good as new. I don't know why some people throw away their money. Some people these days have to work hard for their money; AND if you are going to throw away your money, PLEASE throw it in a convenient trash can or throw it on my lawn if you can't find a proper container. I will make sure to make good use of it. Yes, the dollar isn't worth what it used to be as far as purchasing power compared with days gone by but I'm willing to take these dollars if you don't want them.
If by chance you think you might have dropped this dollar by mistake and are frantically looking for it, if you contact me and tell me where you think you may have lost it I will gladly return it to you if you correctly describe where I found it.
I have found money before in my life. If I had a dollar for every time I found money, for sure I would have more dollars.

The Final Countdown

The final countdown, like the classic song from the band "Europe". We are now one week away from the United States nartional election. So, what do you think? I myself am already on record for a Romney victory 52% to 47%. If the election happens on the scheduled November 6th voting date I do think that Romney will hold his current lead in the polls and actually this election may turn out to be not as close as many people currently think. We could see a Romney/Ryan "landslide".

This current Libya fiasco where through either lying,incompetence, or deliberate inaction; four people are dead while no support was given them and we learn now that apparently the terrorist action against the embassy was even viewed in real time. Either Obama directed support for the embassy and this order was not followed or the order to help defend the embassy was never given.

Now, "Hurricane Sandy" has impacted a good portion of the East coast of America. Do you think the photo optics of President Obama trying to look presidential and directing the American citizenry to follow their state governor's advice and assuring everyone that government relief efforts will be in place to assist in the recovery is enough to sway the populace the re-elect Obama?

Has President Obama earned another "four more years" of support? We shall see. Do we re-elect a president who has never had a budget approved and the last budget didn't even receive one DEMOCRAT vote in Congress? Do we re-elect the current "establishment" Obama who until this past week has not put forth any plan for the future? Will Obama's "persona" carry the day next Tuesday? Do we re-elect a president that raised the defecit so much but we still had over 43 months of over 8% unemployment and fewer people are now currently employed that when his term first started? Do we re-elect a president that thinks we should raise taxes during a slow growth economy?

I don't think so. What do you think? The final countdown is upon us. Do we move FORWARD. over the cliff of fiscal ruin on our road to Greece? Or, do we change course with the Romney/Ryan ticket and move towards a path of reducing the total role of the federal government ?

"Obama is the Governor (Def 4a)"

President Obama is the "governor" (definition 4a. as found in the Merriam Webster dictionary as this definition states:an attachment to a machine (as a gasoline engine) for automatic control or limitation of speed. In this case "the economy" is the machine and Obama is the "governor" who by his policies of raising taxes, regulations, instituting "Obamacare" if re-elected, is making many small business in particular pause in any hiring or business expansion plans until after the November 6th election. If Obama by some chance is re-elected many small business owners will forgo hiring new people, convert many former full time positions to part-time under 30 hour per week positions and limit their total employee count to 49 people as the Obamacare provisions state that employers MUST offer health insurance if they have over 50 people employed at their firm to all full time employees who work more than thirty hours per week. Yes, President Obama, although the current president with no former leadership or business experience, is now the "governor (def.4a)" of our economy which will stagnate along at current levels at best and probably the economy will deteriorate with the new tax and regulatory burdens to come.

Similar to NASCAR "restrictor plate" races such as "Daytona and Talladega" where "governors" restrict air intake into the carburetor as thus control the maximum car speed; so to the Obama regime "governors" will restrict any potential future growth in the American economy. That's a fact, and you can look it up in your "Funk and Wagnalls".

The You Tube Anti-Islam Movie

On 9/11/12 this year when the US Libyan ambassador was brutally assassinated; the Obama administration blamed the killing and attack of the US Libyan embassy on a spontaneous reaction to an anti-Islam You Tube movie trailer where hundreds of upset Muslims complete with guns and grenades overran the embassy. Later, on the Sunday talk shows this fiction about the video as the cause of the premeditated terrorist attack was repeated on five or six Sunday news talk shows by Ms. Rice. President Obama at the United Nations in a speech before the general assembly again mentioned this powerful anti-Muslim video as the cause of the so called spontaneous riot.

From the start, this excuse to me of some lame video having such an influence over the Muslim world sounded highly suspicious and not believable. I do wonder why this current president and his administration think that the American public would swallow such an incredible bunch of baloney as the cause of the Libyan embassy attack?

About two weeks later, the new story from this administration is "Of course, we knew from the start that this was a pre-meditated orchestrated terrorist attack." I do wonder why the Libyan embassy was not protected by any sort of American military or security team especially on the anniversary of 9/11. We now know that the embassy attack was viewed in "real time" as it was taking place by state department officials. If the press would do its "job" we may find out a true answer of what really happened this 9/11 in Libya. It is not inconceivable that after America  participated in overthrowing and killing Qaddafi that some Libyans would resent the air strikes.  So far it does appear that "Obama lied and people died". The You Tube video just doesn't hold water as the reason for this Libyan terrorist attack.

"Got to Move My Jaguar"

Some songs these days I just don't get. Maybe I'm getting too old to follow the lyrics of some of these new "young whippersnapper' bands such as "Maroon 5" I think it is for example. What's a "Maroon 5" anyway? Is that a shade of purple? Or maybe a shipwrecked quintet similar to the crew from the "S. S. Minnow"? I don't know.

"Maroon 5" has some new song called something like "Move My Jaguar"? I just don't understand this song. Why does the singer have to move his Jaguar? It it parked in a handicap spot or a no  parking tow zone or too close to a fire hydrant?  Maybe I'm not hearing the words right. Maybe the song says "I got to move my jacket". If so, why write a song about your jacket? Just move your jacket and be done with it.

There must be someone who can explain this song to me as right now "I can't get no... satisfaction" as to what this song is all about. Maybe Mick Jagger of the "Rolling Stones" could help me out. I don't know.

Birds of a Feather

"Birds of a feather flock together" so the old saying goes. In the case of "Big Bird" and President Obama this is certainly true. One of this pair is definitely a "bird brain"; while the other of course is "Big Bird".

The debate watching nation saw that President Obama without his teleprompter or a prescreened fawning audience in front of him doesn't have "too much upstairs" as he stumbled around hemming and hawing or looking down at the podium as Mitt Romney "schooled" him on how an economy really works. President Obama so much loves the role of government that he is begging for a second term; "Please, pretty please vote for me so I can take over more and more private enterprises and bring them under control of me and my unelected government czars". Obama, I doubt ever took any basic economics courses during his high school or college days; or, maybe he did but he won't release his grades as maybe he received "F minus" marks.

Imagine the nerve of Mitt Romney to suggest that the "Corporation for Public Broadcasting" shouldn't receive further governmental assistance. How cruel to suggest that in this day and age of "You Tube" , the Internet, and a multitude of cable television choices that maybe the Public Broadcasting channels should compete like every other station for viewers and advertising dollars. Quality programming should be able to be self sustainable and people and/or advertisers will pay for access to quality programming and the viewers who watch these shows.

President Obama is sooo concerned that Mitt Romney wants to "kill Big Bird" but doesn't seem too concerned about the lack of security for our Libyan ambassador or the ex-Navy seals who were killed on 9/11/ this year. Ambassador Stevens begged for increased security even up to the day before he was assassinated; his pleas fell on deaf presidential ears. Obama was more concerned I'm sure about his upcoming fundraisers and the opportunity to "hobnob" with celebrities who could laugh at his scripted jokes and tell Obama what a "cool cat" he is.

No, President Romney (oops, I'm being a little premature) doesn't want to "kill Big Bird". He wants "Big Bird" to earn his bird seed the old fashioned way by working for it and NOT getting a federal government handout like Obama and the other "bird brains" prefer.

Blah,Blah, Blah

Like,you know,uhh,some people  I have noticed recently say "blah,blah,blah" a lot when they are relating a story  when they want to end their conversation description.  I myself uhh,you know, like uhh,like, like,uhh, never  say like "blah,blah,blah".Instead, I say "Well, whatever" or  to make a long story short".

What I wonder is how "blah,blah,blah" started and like uhh,you know, why the saying is "blah,blah,blah" and not "blah" or "blah,blah" or "blah,blah,blah,blah" or even "blah,blah,blah,blah,blah", not to mention "blah,blah,blah,blah,blah,blah"?  Well whatever,to make a long story short, does anybody out there like,uhh,you know like,like,uh like you know,you know this like uhh, reason for the "blah blah,blah'?
