Then there's this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iV2ViNJFZC8 Makes one feel that the tax money paid by UK citizens is being spent none too wisely, n'est-ce-pas? Here in the USA, we have a Congress of silly notions and an extremely, reactionarily White House funded entirely by kickbacks from Wall Street. No taxes involved! See how superior we are?This message has been edited. Last edited by: Geoff,
Speaking of our "President," I found this quote by one of Illinois' representatives to be hilarious:
"We don't live in a dictatorship or a monarchy. I swore an oath—in the military and in the Senate—to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, not to mindlessly cater to the whims of Cadet Bone Spurs and clap when he demands I clap." The "President" had said the Democrats were treasonous for not applauding during the state of the union address.
For background, Tammy lost both her legs in Iraq in 2004. She recently was elected to the House of Representatives. She's a keeper!
She also calls him Draft Dodger Donald and Deceiver in Chief.
I've often thought that, given his propensity to give everyone nicknames, Trump should have one. I like "Dipshit Donald." If you want to clean it up a bit you could substitute other "D" words, such as "Doofus." But I think, given his earlier remarks, "Shithole Donald" would be appropriate.
Tonight the HuffPost had a story about a private Catholic school that fired a teacher the day she married her girl friend. The reporter said parents were upset since "she had taught their children to read and right."
Guess the reporter needs some remedial training. I know a teacher who's looking for work.
EDIT: Maybe the teacher was discussing literatture and ethics.This message has been edited. Last edited by: <Proofreader>,
Tiger Woods was assessing a long putt. The announcer said it was 34 feet and Woods had moved about ten feet further back to check his line. hen, in a fit of incredibility, the commentator said, "He's keeping a close eye on this shot." My question is: How can a position at least 40 feet away be considered "close"?
Proof, as for "keeping a close eye" on something, I can see where a literalist like me would think that way. I suspect it is the word "close" that makes it confusing.
In my job we work with people from all over the country, in several different time zones (we work across the territories too). Therefore, I have given up on CST or CDT, and now just schedule meetings for Central time.
