Random Thoughts - Thirty

Can someone explain to me why grown men, who make a ton of money playing professional football, do silly little dances like sugar hyped kindergartners when they make a successful play. After all, isn't that what they are paid to do. Must they also make themselves look like fools. I mean, it is embarrassing to see a thirty year old man who weighs 280 lbs. prance around on his tip toes wiggling his hips.

A Norman Rockwell painting, "Saying Grace", just sold at Sotheby's in London for 
$48 million. Don't get me wrong, I like Norman Rockwell. It would be unamerican not to. But he was an American artist that lived in the twentieth century and painted cover art for the Saturday Evening Post. 48 mil. Really?

Wouldn't you love to know why Jimmy Carter wouldn't fly to Mandela's funeral with the other Presidents and is flying there separately? I know I would.

I see area 51 is back in the news. They are bringing out something that anyone could guess was coming, a stealth drone. It's the old magicians trick. Look over here. See what I want you to see. Let's face it, area 51 is almost as public as Fenway Park. I wonder what they have going on at the really secret places.

So thirty million people didn't have health insurance. Some because they couldn't afford it. Some because they didn't want it. Some because they never thought about it. So now we have fifty million people who have lost the insurance that they wanted to keep. The health care system is in turmoil. The whole country is in turmoil. They spent a ton of our money, screwing up the system and proving once again that they are the gang that couldn't shoot straight. Go ahead. Ask yourself if you are better off now than you were five years ago. Go ahead. I dare you.

Did you see in the news, "Global Warming" is dead. Yup, we are now in a cooling cycle that may last to the end of this century. Or maybe in twenty or thirty or forty years the Earth will start warming up again. Weather cycles, folks. We can't predict them and, certainly, can't control them. Remember the old commercial? "You can't beat Mother Nature."

Speaking of commercials, I haven't seen the "hump day" camel on TV lately, and that is a good thing. I can only hope that he has been placed in a high security zoo someplace, never to be seen again. Had to be the most annoying commercial ever.

Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, has been accused of lying to Congress. If true, he should, at the very least, resign. If he doesn't he should be fired in disgrace.

So on Pearl Harbor Day, our President honors those that died there with a picture of himself at the Pearl Harbor Memorial, on his Facebook page. Once again, it is all about him.
