Various Comments on the State of Affairs
« on: September 02, 2015, 05:19:01 PM »
Got a notice in the mails this morning from Social Security Watch that we probably aren't going to get a COLA (cost-of-living-adjustment) this year because the members of Congress consider the 1.2% we've gotten for the last few years was 'too generous'. :thud: And our Medicare premiums will go up too.

:coffee3: and :soapy:

Well, I think I met my first liberal today at work, it seems the other bench tech thinks that Obozo is doing a wonderful job and the hype about him trying to take away guns from vets, and social security recipients is not true.

Really ...

Damn all I did was type in the phrase in the search engine and it gave back over 4,000 links and many were TV video clips ... really how naive are people ... to think that our illustrious "idiot in chief"  has one upheld the Constitution of our country as charged with when sworn in, or gives two hoots about the Bill of Rights.

Latest type of distracted driving

Texting while driving is bad enough but we have now seen it all today.

While stopped at a traffic light what do I see but a woman in a car next to me breast feeding her child while driving, seriously .... and people want to bleat about how "lives matter" yet you are going to continue to drive while breast feeding your child and to add insult to injury you have two additional children in the back seat that are not in a child seat and buckled in ....

Tsk...humans. What're you gonna do with 'em?

 :#1kitteh:

We were once driving onto a reverse bank curve on-ramp with a good tight radius to it (the old one before they fixed it) and I'm in the passenger seat. I happened to look over at the guy next to us and he's got this huge book in front of him. I don't know if it was a road atlas or what. But he's reading the book, not looking where he's going...and eating a sandwich at the same time. I told my husband at the time, slow down. This bozo next to us is reading a book. He glanced over and as I recall said something appropriate and backed off.

I saw another lady driving down I-25 (our main freeway) at sixty mph putting on her mascara.

:psycho: :thud: to them both.

They taste nasty and they're stringy. Not even barbeque sauce helps.

I'm not a Liberal but I am a Democrat, have been ever since Vietnam, I'm also a Veteran receiving Care at the VA Hospital in my area and also  Retired and receiving Social Security and Obama or his Administration have never asked for any of my Guns, good freaking luck if anyone does. Funny thing is I was also a Bench Tech for years before I got my EE Degree and agree The President has done a good Job especially considering all the Obstructionist Republicans have done to Stop him from doing anything which was their Stated Goal from day one of his Administration.

Back up a minute on history - like for at least 60-70 years...from Dulles and Eisenhower to present. Suez Crisis, The Invasion of Sinai, Moshe Dayan, Gamal Abdul Nasser, Prince Aga Kahn, Prince Faisal, Osama bin Laden, Yassir Arafat, the Crown Prince of Brunei, Saddam Hussein, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. And let's talk about the Banana Repulbics, neo-colonialism, and the Communists and Generalisimo Francisco France (yes, he's still dead), Juan Batista, Kruschev, Chairman Mao Tse Dung, Papa Doc Duvalier, the Marcos's,  The Red Threat. McCarthyism. Theoretically, those of us in our late sixties lived through all that and should remember. Air raid duck and cover drills in your class in grade school with all those lovely windows in the school room waiting to shower you with shards...just in case their was one.

Who is it who's sold off some of our national parks and large parcels of real-estate to China, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, etc.? Our government...to finance the overbloated National Debt from all the wars. Now China's jacked up their yen, not to mention breathing the air in Beijing is like a two-pack a day smoking habit. Bush Jr's 'little Shock N Awe' war was costing us 20K a SECOND. Hold your breath for a minute and you'll be rich! Cheney and Rumsfeld laughed all the way to the bank. Viet Nam wasn't anything but a drug war, burnin' through downtown Saigon. One of Mitch McConnell's father in law's boat was found to be packed with mass quantities of cocaine, but he was found 'innocent of any wrong-doing' . 

What a perfect 'fall guy' - a black president with an obstructionist, Koch Brothers owned Republican Congress who are their talking heads; who have managed to pass less bills than any other congress before them and even shut down the government whilst reading Dr. Seuss. That certainly proves he's incompetent. How about Mr. Manpants and NAFTA; Reagan's draconian public education cuts? What about the Neo-Con PC's who want to further rewrite our history books and school text books to hide what really happened? It was already a lie with I was in fifth grade History class. Finally, some people actually know the truth about Christopher Columbus and Hernan Cortez. Let's not talk about the US Supreme Court, full of corporate minions and shills.

Who's ruining this country?

Who's buddies? Aaaaaaaaaarghhhhhhhhhhhh.

:zipit:

We've had three vehicular homicides in the state in the last week and I lost count of how many shootings, planned shootings that were averted happened this week here. Maybe we should talk about taking people's cars away too.
