Curmudgeon in the Wry 526


Sunday, July 08, 2012---594 Words---Average Reading Time: 1 Minutes, 58 Seconds. (A pointless waste of time---time frittered away)
Offending readers and hindering productivity one issue at a time since 2001.
Continuing to call them as I see them.
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.
A Grumpy Old Man Production.         
If you want this in a different language…move to a country that speaks it!
Gluten Free.
Why waste your time anywhere else.

+++++++
Quote: “If there were only one right woman for every right man on earth, they would never find each other.”—Renowned economist, Milton Freidman.
+++++++
Stats: Just the facts---Fox News Channel had the top 13 cable news programs in total viewers, and the top eight in the demo for Q2, 2012.
+++++++
You Know You’re Old: If you still tuck your shirt in…except when carrying a concealed weapon.
+++++++
Rave: I just love Wimbledon…the civility of players wearing tennis whites, the dress of the ball boys and line judges and the great towels.
Having John McEnroe and Chris Evert as commentators is a huge plus.
Roger that.
+++++++
Rave: Great tag line for the upcoming US Open tennis tournament---“It must be love.”
+++++++
Irony alert: Voting is arguably the most sacred privilege we Americans enjoy, and the obama regime says voter ID is all wrong and unfair. Now, when obama’s wife made a D.C. book-signing appearance, two IDs (driver’s license and Social Security card) were required to enter the store. One would have thought such a policy would be unfair to young people and members of minority groups, but that only applies when it comes to voting. The world is upside down.
+++++++
Didjaknow: We are enduring the longest string of consecutive quarters of economic growth below 4% since WWII, an average of 1.4% in the obama years.

+++++++
You Know You’re Old: If you ever waited to hear your favorite song on the radio.
+++++++
Rant: America’s storyteller = obama, the 21st century’s Aesop. He’s still attempting to sell the American public black and white photos of rainbows.
+++++++
One Final Thought: When you compare apples to apples, the Ambrosia is the crème de la crème of the apple family.
+++++++
If you can read this, thank a teacher.
If you can’t, thank the teacher’s union.

That is all.
As you were.
