Curmudgeon in the Wry 444

Tuesday, July 28, 2009---798 Words---Average Reading Time: 2 Minutes, 58 Seconds. (A pointless waste of time---time frittered away)
Offending readers and hindering productivity one issue at a time since 2001.
Virtually free of original ideas.
Warning: Contains unsound bites from the apple of life.
Often wrong…never in doubt.
Being wrong is the risk you run by thinking and acting.

Lou Dobbs.
+++++++
Reading: “The Defector” by

On the Hi Fi: “At Long Last Love” by

Ever Notice: That those who endorse higher taxes and those who pay those taxes are not the same people. Geithner, Daschel, Sibelius and Rangel come to mind.
+++++++
Must See TV: Only two more episodes of “
Burn Notice” remain on USA Network at 9 PM on Thursday. “Monk” at 9PM and “Psych” at 10 PM return on Fridays beginning August 7th. AMC’s “Mad Men” returns Sunday, August 16th at 10 PM.
+++++++
Irony: Why isn’t phonetic spelled the way it sounds?
+++++++
Hmmm: "Savings will pay two-thirds of cost!" Sort of like proper tire inflation to reduce foreign oil dependence. You don’t have to be the head cashier at Wal-Mart to know that’s bogus.
+++++++
Hmmm: Have you ever imagined a world without hypothetical situations?
+++++++
Lest we forget: The leaders in the obama administration have never run a business or met a payroll.
+++++++
Didjaknow: The New York Yankees were the last of the original 16 major league teams to travel by air (1946).
+++++++
Truism: It is appropriate that Franken represents Minnesota…its state bird is the loon.
+++++++
Rant: Now that 59-year-old
Tom Watson, coming off hip replacement surgery last year, nearly won the British Open, do we need to hear anymore about Tiger Woods having knee surgery last year?
+++++++
Hmmm: What does one do with an honorary doctorate? If you had a leaky faucet and a plumber showed up with an honorary wrench, would you still want him to work in your kitchen?
+++++++
This just in: “The more we inspect the House bill (Health Care Reform), the more it looks to be one of the worst pieces of legislation ever introduced in Congress.” ---Wall Street Journal editorial, 7/21/09.
+++++++
Didjaknow: It wasn’t called the Super Bowl until the IVth edition.

Quote: “The stimulus package hasn’t stimulated anything but the National Debt.” —
Marco Rubio.
+++++++
Didjaknow: More than half of all living Americans were born after 1966.

+++++++
Rant: The Nanny Dims want to ration health care for everyone in America---except for those who break our immigration laws.
+++++++
Didjaknow: Prior to portraying old men in the movies,
Walter Brennan was a stunt man. As a stuntman, he had his teeth knocked out.

Just asking: Where do you suppose Dr. obama got his MD? University of
Pinocchio?
+++++++
Didjaknow: Roller skates originated in Holland.
+++++++
Stats: On average, you will take 50,000 car trips in your lifetime.

Another stat: It takes about 45 minutes for a spider to weave an average round web.
+++++++
Quote: “Anything that is primarily steered by the hand of government rather than the price signals that free markets so efficiently process on a daily basis, would be an agency of the state.” —
Investor’s Business Daily.
+++++++
Didjaknow: The term “white shoe” for describing a socially secure firm derives from the WASPy habit of wearing chalked (white) bucks in the summer.
+++++++
Now you know: The clavichord was the first stringed instrument with a keyboard.
+++++++
Yet another stat: Most who order eggs request scrambled.
+++++++
Rant: I am sure tired of presbo whining about the financial mess he inherited. He would sound less disingenuous had he not voted for every spending bill that added to the deficit during the 150 days he magnanimously showed up in the Senate.
+++++++
Truism: In a public restroom, the sink furthest from the towel dispenser will always have the most soap.
+++++++
Rimshot: Is it possible that “Memorex” is the name of an all-mime band and those tapes aren’t blank after all?
+++++++
Truism: There are more people who understand English outside the United States than inside the United States.
+++++++
Rant: presbo’s health care plan will put a Federal Health Board between the elderly and their doctors.
+++++++
Hmmm: Income tax = Capital Punishment.
+++++++
Didjaknow: In a typical day, a professional typist’s fingers can travel 16 miles.
+++++++
Rant: Too bad presbo is not as tough on the Castro brother, Chavez, et al as he is on radio talk show hosts and the good police officers of Cambridge, Massachusetts.
+++++++
If you can read this, thank a teacher. If you are reading it in English, thank a Veteran.
That is all.
As you were.
