The Product Placement President

October 7, 2006

So yeah, Monica Lewisnky and Bill Clinton sold a few cigars, right? And I thought that was…shall we say … in bad taste. So, in fact, is this: President Bush PRODUCT PLACING his sister’s book. He knows he’ll be in the news, he has the ability to call a press conference whenever he wants. So, why not just bring a copy of his sister’s book along? She can make a few bucks, right?

And, my friends, this is exactly what he did for all of HIS friends. He product placed companies all through the war, and now we invest in oil and defense companies, because we know the president is endorsing them.

He should be carrying Bob Woodward’s new book, State of Denial.President Bush just happens to be carrying his sister’s book


And we’re worried about the Taliban?

One of the most popular blogs today, and I suppose I’m helping it stay popular.

May women teach men at church?

There are some good counterpoints in there but I will leave them where they are so I don’t misquote them. I’m a Christian (very handy when you live in the heartland) but I’m the kind that believes in common sense. I’m not the kind that tells people they are going to hell. Okay, I do but for fun, not out of a theological obligation. If you want to get right down to it I’m the kind of Christian that thinks the way you treat other people is important. And how you act is more important than what you say. And whether you have wiggly bits or jiggly bits does not enter at all into that equation.  And that’s about all I can say without going on a long rant about abortion clinic bombers and other terrorists nutjobs. I’m so tired of these ultra-right-wing goofballs getting all the press. We are not all like that!

God gave you a brain with the hope that you would use it. (And he gave it to you through a long evolutionary process using the laws of physics and nature, but that’s getting off-topic.)

Crying Dwarf Crocodile

Steve Irwin was killed by a stingray! In a violent death, too.

From the article:

“He came on top of the stingray and the stingray’s barb went up and into his chest and put a hole into his heart,” said Stainton, who was on board Irwin’s boat at the time.

I liked the Crocodile Hunter. I am not sure that I agree with this statement:

“He died doing what he loved best and left this world in a happy and peaceful state of mind. He would have said, ‘Crocs Rule!'” I think he died doing what he least expected, and he would have said, “Stingrays Suck!”

The list of people not killed by Stingrays is still pretty long, including my favorite neighbors, who now have at least SIX dogs. **sigh**

Here is a video of the crocodile hunter for you, with a scorpion.

Running a tight ship

August 22, 2006

My neighbor decided not to let her dogs run free this morning.  As she was pulling out of her driveway, she saw three of them running around in the yard across the street.  So she took action. She stopped her car, got out, and pointed at the house and started yelling at those dogs.  By this time they were up around her car. When they didn’t immediately run back to the house, she marched toward them, pointing and yelling. They didn’t ever make it to the house, but I’m sure she got the point across.
Wow. I’m glad she is so decisive and such a stern disciplinarian. Those dogs might be running all over the neighborhood now if she hadn’t come down on them like that.

Was she too harsh?


Lands’ End Pushes Way Too Many Buttons

I don’t approve of their misplaced apostrophe, so I’ve always eyed them with a wary eye, but their latest catalog is out of control.


You were loud and clear —

now they’re here!

Okay, who shouted “tunics”. EVER? French Peasants during a revolt….MAYBE. Overheated Coal Miners … PROBABLY.
