Tuesday's Loose Thoughts

Real life has trumped blog life again...well, at least since school started three weeks ago.  My site stats are in the tank, negative numbers, almost, but between school and taking care of my mom, by the time I get to my computer I'm brain dead.  I pretty much quit checking my sitemeter ages ago when I realized that I'm not making any money blogging and that I'll probably die of old age before I join the "million hits" club.  It used to bug me but it doesn't anymore. 

Anyway, there have been some stories that I've been following.  This Gibson guitar thing is just bizarre.  Powerline has a great encapsulation of the whole thing if you're behind the curve like I've been.  And the Michelle Obama twist makes even more crazy.  Gotta love it.  Doesn't the DoJ have anything else to do besides harass one of the few companies that still produces an American product?   Major fail.

Elsewhere, this post by Doug Powers is enough to make one's skin crawl.  "Federal family"?  Really?  Doug:

If my “family” was $14 trillion in debt I’d put myself up for adoption. Oh, and the “federal family” member who would have normally caught the spelling error in “preperations” was out tending to family, so we can forgive that oversight.

This has helped soften the image of the federal government to such a degree that the IRS is now considering referring to themselves as America’s “little audit buddies.”

Seriously.  Skin creepy crawlies.

And then we have Darryl Hannah getting arrested at the White House for a another Hannah-esque liberal unicorns and rainbows sit-in:

"Sometimes it's necessary to sacrifice your freedom for a greater freedom," Hannah said in Lafayette Park before her arrest.  "And we want to be free from the horrible death and destruction that fossil fuels cause, and have a clean energy future."
The video at the link is just bizarre; Hannah is arrested and frisked to a round of thunderous applause and chants of "Darryl, Darryl, Darryl!" She beams and basks in the moment like a red carpet event.  Irrelevant celebrities I can do without.

All I have to say about this one is that streaks were made to be broken.  

And finally, the tale of Obama's Uncle Omar gets weirder and weirder.  The Boston Herald reports today that Uncle Omar had a valid Social Security number even though he's an illegal alien ordered to be deported.  How'd that happen?    Mark Krikorian explains how it could have happened.

Oh and one last thing:  I watched the George Bush interview about 9/11 on Nat Geo last night.  Powerful stuff.  Powerful.  Catch it if you get a chance; it was well done.

Oh. My blogging has been worse. I am currently fascinated by the BioEthics Commission appointed by Obama for no apprent reason other than to dredge up old dirt so he can appologize on our behalf to whoever. I have to ponder the weirdness of it all awhile longer before blogging it.

I was listening to Hannidy this afternoon and he was interviewing Hannah about getting arrested and something she said interested me. She showed what a genius she was by saying civil disobedience ended slavery.

Excuse me you moron, you are going to give Hollywood actors a bad name. 600000 dead men is not civil disobedience...it's a war.

Get a clue.

After seeing that picture of Darryl Hannah, I hope TransCanada builds that friggin' pipeline through her damn living room.

Don't care if it's 2000 miles out of the way, just have it go to malibu or wherever this sanctimonious learjet limousine liberal lives, set up some sort of Rube Goldberg contraption-looking thing right there in her front yard and then have it jag 2000 miles back the other way.

I normally don't listen to Michael Savage, but I did last night. He was talking about Darryl Hannah that made me chuckle and was somewhat insightful. He said Darryl Hannah is just another has been middle-aged actress from the past, with a sagging ass and breasts, that is trying to make herself relevant again.

From what I understand D. Hannah drives a 1979 Pontiac TransAm; a gas guzzler if there ever was one. I do with this insignificant Hollywood pieces of s@#* would practice what they preach. Why isn't she driving a Toyota Prius?
