Another timeless classic…
It was a tough day for our friends north of the border today. Terrorism may have found its way to the Great White North.
Canada has always been our friends, so naturally, the Americans should “stand on guard” with our neighbors to the north.
When 9/11 happened, several nations honored ours by playing our national anthem. Canada, this is one American who would like to return the favor.
I have to admit I was most disappointed when President Obama appointed Ron Klain as the “czar of Ebola” on Friday past.
I try to keep things apolitical on this blog, mainly because when push ever comes to shove in this era of America, the major parties collude against the wishes and best interests of the American people. “Obamacare” and its implementation was an example of this, as it marked a major Republican-like move by Democrats to screw the people out of their money and line the pockets of healthcare and insurance companies with it. The Republicans, when the time comes at some point in the future, will keep Obamacare in place. Mark my words on that.
Now, they put a bureaucrat in charge of a mainly medical problem.
Would I go to the Dalai Lama to help me bowl better?
Would I go to a football coach to learn to paint?
Putting a bureaucrat in charge of Ebola makes as much sense. Seems to be an asinine move, unless the disease is farther along than what’s publicly being discussed.
If Ebola goes airborne, will this government tell you?
Another one of those “first songs” from my childhood…
Have a good weekend, or try, try, try to anyway!
I didn’t watch last night’s governors debate between former governor Charlie Crist and the present governor, Rick Scott. But by now, I bet you have heard what happened.
First, a little background for those of you outside of Florida.
Crist and Scott used to each be Republicans, but Crist left the GOP a couple of years ago and campaigned for President Obama in 2012, and the GOP seemed happy to be rid of him. There were rumors of Mr. Crist being gay and a lover of alcoholic beverages (not necessarily in that order), but nothing was ever proven to be substantial.
As for Rick Scott, he was so bad as the owner over at the HCA hospital chain (buying up Largo Medical Center a few years back, where my mom used to work) he became the governor of Florida. The GOP loves their crooks, don’t they? My theory as to why that is is because said individuals (such as Herr Scott) are figureheads really, controlled by the middle men pulling their strings. Would George W. Bush have been successful without Karl Rove?
Fast forward to last night, and Ricky’s little tantrum. The Scott camp alleged Crist had committed the heresy of keeping a small fan under his podium, so Ricky Boy threw a hissy fit, refusing to debate the former governor for a good seven minutes.
It was the first time I had ever seen a candidate lose a debate before the debate ever began. I also hope it costs him the election! I did my part, voting for Mr. Crist, thanks to early balloting by mail.
Like many of you, I’ve been watching the news over the past days and weeks of the Ebola outbreak here in United States. Ironic that 45 years ago we could go to the moon, and now we can’t even keep a disease away that is harder to get and spread as gonorrhea once was.
I have a hard time believing our government is that incompetent, but I was saying that roughly a decade ago when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, and for a while back then our government WAS that incompetent.
I’m not a physician, so I don’t know what to tell you in terms of advice, other than it is not rational to live in fear as the media would want you to. Apparently people will get sick, and people will perish from this, but the odds are still pretty good that the average human being will still be around.
So there is that.
With the passing of Paul Revere this week at the age of 76, thought I’d play this classic. Was an unlikely hit for the Raiders back in 1970, and the song also serves as a bit of a history lesson.
Until next week…
