Saturday I was up at 5:45am. For no, good reason, other than I seem to have to operate on defective corgi’s time clock these days. He has figured out that the doesn’t have to get on the bed to get me up in the morning. If he just scratches at the covers for 20 minutes or so I will get up and do his bidding.
Once again, if a dog had opposable thumbs and could actually get me a damned cup of coffee in the morning, this would go a lot better for all of us. As it is he rules by terror.. “Get up or I WILL crap in you hallway, and you can beat me all you want.”
Having a bad case of the am boredoms I went out to get the paper.
Or weekend paper has been a source for at least three different pieces in this space, because our douchebag weekend delivery lady refused to put on the front porch. No, she has to use the spot on the post where the newspaper bucket used to be, the one I removed two years ago to remind her to put the thing where I can reach it in the nude without offending anyone except my neighbor directly across the street. And, since his kids are all 20 somthings and out of the house, I care not.
So.. some running commentary from the morning paper, I’ve been on a roll the last few days, by other accounts I assure you, I think because the bronchitis or pneumonia or what ever I had that was wiping me out, has finally resolved. This confirms my man sense that no matter what the symptom, if you wait long enough it will resolve with out medical attention. One way, or the other.
Sit down and get a glimpse into my head, as I read the paper.
Headline is more jobs are out there, but we have a long way to go. Reported unemployment rate is 8.9%. This is DEEPLY concerning to politicians of the Republican variety because if this trend continues we could see the reelection of the Muslim in Chief.
On a side note I did enjoy Mike Huckabee’s speech on Obama’s growing in Kenya and being tainted by commie relatives who witnessed the MauMau rebellion. Scratching my head I don’t know where to start, I thought it was an Indonesian Madrassa that indoctrinated him. I thought he was born in Kenya, faked the birth certificate in Hawai’i, then went to Indonesia and became a Muslim, then met with the Illuminati to be anointed King of the World. It all makes my head spin and I wish someone would explain it to me.
Tubby Smith and the Demise of Minnesota Nice
Gopher’s Basketball coach Tubby Smith has been upset this year over the chants and taunts that Gopher Fans have leveled against opposing teams in the Barn. Early last week he sent out an email to students and season ticket holders admonishing them to clean up their act. He closed with “I promise to bring our A-Game to the remaining three games at the barn if you promise to bring your A-Game too. Based on the Gophers play the last two, I’m thinking the barn should be rocking on Saturday with profanity. Or maybe a chant of “A-Game” for 20 minutes while the Gophers stink up joint. Again.
Rapist says he deserves freedom
A chronic sex offender with more than 90 offenses on his record says “I deserve another chance”. I’m laughing and barfing at the same time. That hearing should be about 30 seconds long if all is right in the world.
Rocket Falls to Sea
For the second time in two years, and for the same reason, a NASA global warming monitoring satellite has plummeted into the Pacific, a half billion dollars down the toilet. I’m sure that by the time my kids are my age we’ll be watching the Europeans and Chinese in space and remembering when we used to be able to that too.
But at least the greedy teachers aren’t unionized anymore.
Mexico still a hot ticket for Minnesotans
No shock here, beheading at the hands of a Los Zetas operative is faster than freezing to death I think, just say’n. 40 below zero. If you’ve never felt it you should, then you’d understand.
Still better than Padre Island however.
Or anywhere in Florida.
What’s not been said yet? Douchbag.. (BTW I can’t say that out loud anymore, someone objects. What if I went with the gender neutral “enema bag”? No good? Shorten to “fleet”? I like that.. “He’s a fleet”.
No one gets it, Yet.. I may have found a way to leave my mark on the world, introduce a new term to the vernacular.
I could care less, artists, composers, actors, bloggers.. we’ve been self destructive for years. I can’t tell you the pressures that writing this blog has brought down on me. If wasting money on comics and indie band MP3’s were a drug, I’d be right there with Charlie. Train wreck.
Minneapolis Baby treated for measles
While we’re tracking Obama’s sorted past, same folks are not vaccinating their kids because.. again massive confusion for me. Global Warming is a hoax BUT vaccinations causing autism is not? We were so close to eradicating measles until Lisa Bonnet and her ilk, starting telling us that we were killing our kids.
Blows me away who we trust and we don’t in this society.
From the Sports Dept-
Oldest kid, Michigan Tech.. the Tech Hockey team lost their game vs. North Dakota last night, by the typical 5 goals. The might Huskies will finish the season at the bottom of the WCHA. The HATED North Dakota Fighting not mentioning Native American mascots here, especially the tribes have asked them to change it green guys have won the regular season. A-Gain. Tech finishes the season with 6 points, or 11 behind the next team with a 2-23-2 record.
Oh well, we saw them play twice, enjoyed ourselves, and tried to be supportive for a team that sucks as bad they do, I’m good and supporting losers. Which reminds me, better let the wife know I have three Timberwolves games next week.
Now, that being said this trend of crappy sports teams and my family may be coming to an end. We’re on the hunt for colleges for our middle kid now. Top of his list, Auburn. Which reminds me, I have to tell the Wife that Auburn is in the great state of Northern Florida… Southern New England? She wasn’t aware that it is in fact in Alabama.
We’ve never been to Alabama, that will change this spring when go for a college tour. Lets see how this plays out.
