Random Thoughts: 7/16/2012

  • Happy birthday to Revis Edgewater!
  • Mitt Romney doesn’t like the fact that the Obama campaign is attacking his character with negative ads.  So the natural thing to do is to release some positive ads to counteract the negativity, right?  Right?!?!  Apparently not.  Romney released his own negative ad besmirching Obama’s negative ads.  How typically hypocritical.  Gotta love politics.
  • Laszlo Csatary, a Nazi war criminal, has been located in Budapest.  The Simon Wiesenthal Centre is all over it and wants the man prosecuted.  While I get why they want to make this man pay for his crimes, what’s the freakin’ point?  The man is 97-years old and has lived a full life already.  The are more meaningful things to pursue.
  • The ACLU is suing the Highland Park school district because parents are fed up with a system in which 90% of its students are not proficient in reading or math.  I don’t generally agree with what the ACLU does most of the time and I don’t know how suing a school district which is extremely broke will help, but it’s better than doing nothing.  I wouldn’t send my children to this horrible excuse for a school system.
  • The US Olympian contestants will apparently being wearing uniforms that were….made in China.  How very appropriate.  In an election year in which the outsourcing of jobs is an important issue, our olympic athletes will be wearing red, white, and blue clothing with tags that say made in China.  I wonder what the children that made those uniforms wear thinking when they made them?
  • Michael Payless, a 33-year old father of three, left a loaded gun within reach of his 3-year old son on Friday night.  Today, Michael Payless is no longer among the living.  While his son was playing with the loaded weapon, it discharged and Payless died from the gunshot.

    I know some people are going to come on here and scream about tougher gun laws, but no law can regulate stupid.  Owning a gun comes with a lot of responsibility.  The biggest of which is ensuring that the firearm is not within reach of a child.  I’m a firm believer that every US citizen has the right to defend him or herself with a firearm against criminals who get their firearms by bypassing current gun laws, but those citizens should exercise some common sense.

    I’m just glad it wasn’t the 3-year old who paid the ultimate price for his father’s stupidity.

  • George Zimmerman’s legal troubles have just been magnified.  Not only does he have to somehow justify the murder of Trayvon Martin to keep himself out of prison, he now has a family friend accusing him of molesting her.  I hate to judge (well, not really), but George isn’t turning out to be a very likeable guy.  First he shot a teenager dead because he looked suspicious, then he lied (well, his wife did.  Allegedly) about how much money he had at a bail hearing, and now he’s been accused of molesting a young girl.  Nice guy, that George.
  • This post is going to be uncharacteristically short.  Most of the news articles I perused to construct this post were political posts dealing with the coming election and I just didn’t have the patience to read them.  Or the desire, for that matter.  I can only stand so much political posturing, and that’s all these idiots do any more.  They very rarely talk about what they plan to do if elected and concentrate on the fuck-ups of their opponent’s past instead.  It gets old fast.  I’m tired of hearing about Bain.  I’m tired of political ads that attempt to slander the character of political hopefuls.  I’m tired of hearing about negative ads condemning negative ads.

    Hey, I have an idea.  Instead of searching for who’s to blame or where things went wrong why don’t we look for solutions instead?

  1. But looking for solutions might actually be productive. And then what would they have to fear monger about??? Politicians and campaign managers need to work, too! :)

  2. As for things Made In China, unless people demand otherwise, it will continue to be business as usual. People don’t see that if they buy one shirt made in the USA for $50.00 it is made to last and will out live the 5 shirts they purchased at Walmart. People are so programed for fast & cheap they don’t see the logic.
    I was listening to the Michael Smerconish show the other day and this came up. Someone called in and said he attended an Army/Navy game at West Point. He went to the school store to purchase a T-shirt and low and behold it was made in Vietnam. He was a veteran of that war, complained to the manager and didn’t buy the shirt. You could tell he wasn’t angry, he was hurt. How can the most prominent Military Academies in the country sell shirts with their logo, made in Vietnam? That is just wrong….

    • I can’t think of much that is made in this country anymore. It IS sad.

      • Not only that, but nothing lasts as Tops mentioned. It’s all made to fail…

        But Bain is important. Really important. Much more so than anyone’s sex life, for example which gets lots of press. It is Romney’s one claim to why he should be president.

        • I don’t know if it’s his one. It’s the one he’s pushing right now, though.

          Still, I don’t care about what happened 10 years ago and I think it’s pointless for them to argue about it like school kids on the playground.

          Tell me how you’re going to fix things. Don’t tell me why you’re the lesser of two evils.

          • You don’t think that how a person conducts business throughout his entire career reflects on how he will do things in the future? I strongly disagree. Besides, Mitt is just saying he’s not Obama. That’s not good enough. Plus he is a liar who says whatever folks want to hear, and changes with the wind. He is a spineless toad. And how will any leader with whom he negotiates believe any of his promises?

          • Right now, saying he’s not Obama is actually swaying people. I’m not very impressed with what Obama has done so far, either.

            As far as the lying…yeah, he does it. As does Obama and every other politician. I don’t know why you think that Romney is the only one that does it.

            Let’s face it. This election, just like damn near every other one, comes down not to choosing the best person to lead our country, but choosing the lesser of two evils. This is really getting old.

  3. TwinDaddy, I am missing your stuph. Hope life is improving for you. I’m not sure this will help, but, well, at least I hope you won’t hate me for doing this, but I nominated you for a {Booker} Award. Feel free to accept or ignore as you prefer. But I’d love to know what you’re reading.
