Everyone complains about the weather but no one does anything about it. Mark Twain said that. But why complain about the weather when.....
President Obama has abandoned Israel. He came out last night in support of the Palestinians and embraced the pre-1967 borders. Iran must be licking its chops. Why would Saddam Hussein not allow weapons inspectors in? Because then the world, and specifically Iran, would know he had no weapons! But we did what Iran couldn't: we weakened Iraq beyond all recognition. You're welcome. Now we are going to give billions of dollars (that we will probably borrow from China) to Arab nations whose most mainstream political parties would like to see Israel wiped off the map. Could we please have Ronald Reagan back? Heck, I'd even settle for Jimmy Carter.
Public Safety Advocates, a fancy phrase for "People Who Know What's Best For You Better Than You Do Because You're A Dumbass" want to bump off Ronald McDonald because he's a bad influence. The last time I checked (I didn't really but it's just good, common sense) toddlers can't drive. Their parents are the ones who decide what the kids eat, and if parents want to take their kids to a G-D Mickey D's, it's none of the State's bizness. Sure, kids are fat. I'm fat. But I still think choosing what I eat is a basic human right even if it's not in the Bill of Rights.
Part II of "People Who Know What's Best For You Better Than You Do": New York State wants to pass a law banning teens from tanning booths. If you are not yet 18 it's going to be illegal to get a tan so you don't burn on the family vacation to Myrtle Beach or so you can look nice for your prom pics. Shouldn't that be up to the parents to decide? Oh, that's right. They're dumbasses.
The three-headed monster of Hochul-Corwin-Davis are running for Shirtless Chris "I'm Really Buff" Lee's empty Congressional seat. The 70-year old Davis gets assaulted by a phony camera crew, who edit the tape to make it look like they haven't been following the guy around all day and getting in his face, and then the incessant radio and tv spots accuse all three candidates of trying to kill Medicare. Way to make a play for the Frightened Senior Citizen voting bloc, you idiots. These ads run alongside others in which, apparently, if you agree with the Ryan Budget Proposal from a few weeks ago, you want everyone and their mother to have an abortion. I don't know who to vote for and I just want it all to be over.
It's NBA playoffs which means a series started on a Sunday should end right before you begin your Christmas shopping. The Heat-Bulls series is averaging a game every four days. Can we please pick up the pace, Mr. Stern? If Oprah was really that powerful she would have killed bin Laden a long time ago.
I think there was some other stuff that was bugging me but, except for people who hit straights and flushes on the River, I can't think of it now. Ok, that's it.
