Just Ramblin

Played golf, drank vodka, ate tacos. Thought I should post this before it becomes obsolete. I do want to say how much I like all the Oklahomans who read this mindless blather. Hat tip to Chef Troll. Somehow he found this thing and broadened my horizons. Life is funny sometimes and I'm glad for my friends in the blogosphere.

Things that cross my mind while wondering why anyone would spend $2,600.00 to watch a regular season game at the new Yankee stadium.

Don't you love living in the era of no personal responsibility? I could go on and on but the example I'll use is Manny Ramirez. Drugs are rampant in professional sports. Manny was recently busted for a performance enhancing substance and had this to say "Recently I saw a physician for a personal health issue. He gave me a medication, not a steroid, which he thought was OK to give me,” Ramirez said in a statement issued by the players’ union. Really? Your physician is so incompetent that he doesn't know which substances are banned or not? My advice to Manny is to get another doctor. Do these people really believe that the rest of us are that stupid? I mean, the rest of us who didn't vote for President Obamaclaus. The ones who did vote for him are obviously morons.

Hmm. Lets see. The government has bankrupt Social Security and Medicare and they want to be in charge of healthcare. Yeah. That makes perfect sense. A tremendous idea.

I was garage saling a couple of weeks ago and heard this exchange. A son pulled up to his mother's house and was wearing a t-shirt without sleeves.

Mom "You cut the sleeves off that shirt? I bought that special for you and it was expensive"

Son "Well, it's gonna get dirty with or without sleeves."

Me, to myself "What the hell does that even mean?" It made my head hurt.

You have to love living here. 80 on Saturday. 45 on Monday. 72 today and a chance of snow on Saturday. Yes, the weather here is very predictable.

I love baseball and consider that I have an eye for talent. Big Papi, you aren't all that. Every time Manny was out of the line-up you were exposed and could easily be pitched around. Now that Manny has been gone for almost a season, your production has been non-existent. Oh, your defenders can come up with whatever excuse they want but the bottom line is that the moniker "greatest clutch hitter of all time" is more of a product of where and when you played and nothing else. You never had me fooled. Not for a second.

Not alll republicans are conservatives but all democrats are liberals.

Speaking of democrats. Why can't they lead? Agree with George Bush or not, he did lead. He wasn't concerned with a legacy but the future of our country. He governed in that manner. That's not to say that I agreed with what he did all the time. Quite the contrary. I believed in 2000 and believe now that GWB was and is a moderate Republican and his record all but verifies this. Before some of you anti-war protesters get on the bitch wagon remember that there is no way we would be in Iraq without support of democratic leadership. Saying that you were "mislead" or "didn't have all the facts" but voting anyway only shows how stupid democratic leadership is. If you didn't research this particular subject with 100% conviction before voting you should resign in disgrace.

To continue on the legacy theme. Lets look at President Teleprompter. He is more worried about a Palestinian state and relations with dictators than righting the economic ship and protecting our nation. Closer to home Montana's stuttering idiot of a US Senator, Max Baucus, is trying to cram a health care plan system through the Senate that virtually no on in America wants. Except Max. And the insurance companies that contributed $400,000.00 to his re-election campaign. Coincidence? I think not.

Why isn't the press complaining about the rising cost of gasoline? Gas has gone up over 20 cents a gallon since Memorial Day and not a peep. When this happened every summer under GWB the press would scream how he was helping his buddies in Big Oil. Could it be that President Bush didn't have anything to do with high gas prices and that this was all part of the left wing mainstream media? No, not at all. The members of the media have their own opinions but they report objectively. Look at Dan Rather. oops I'm sorry. The New York Times. Dang it, my bad. Katie (I got my job because I'm above average looking and swallow) Couric. Sorry, wrong again. Someone out there has to be able to come up with an example of MSM objectivity. Anyone?
When did race, sex and ethnicity become a factor when picking a Supreme Court justice? Call me Ismail but shouldn't the most important factor be how they interpet the law?

I wonder if President Barry will apologize to the Germans this weekend for invading Normandy.
This weekend is the 65th anniversary of D-Day. Take a moment on Saturday to remember the thousands who died to liberate Europe. I heard Reagan's ,speech on the 40th anniversary and it is still moving 25 years later.

What did people say before the expression "its just like riding a bike"?

I would rather have to spend a weekend with my ex-wife then play golf as poorly as I played it last night. I still almost puke in my mouth when I think about it. The golf. Oh yeah, and the ex-wife.

Does anyone watch the NHL anymore? Last year QVC had a higher market share than the hockey all-star game. Makes me giggle.

So, Ted Kennedy's son is in rehab again. I'm not trying to make light of the situation but the article I read almost had a tone of "feel sorry for him" about it. Rush hurts his back and in his recovery becomes addicted to pain pills and is crucified in the media but a U.S. congressmen whose biggest claim to fame is, unlike his dad, not killing anyone while drinking and driving checks himself into rehab for the umpteenth time and I'm supposed to feel sorry for him? Whatever happens to him and his dad they've brought on themselves.

now those are some ramblin thoughts. I sit here watching the Magic hand over the NBA championship to the Lakers in 5 games. There are a lot of things going through my mind watching this game. I think you've given me a post idea for later in the week. Hope you had a good weekend.
