Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • Michelle Obama was great last night and, as she spoke, I could only think about the racists that post in the comments on here sometimes. Uh, boys, she's black and smarter than you.
  • But it was pretty funny watching the CSPAN coverage of the Democratic convention. With no commercial breaks, the cameras would just pan around the arena during down time. Amongst the predominately minority crowd were lots of old white man doing some pretty bad dancing.
  • I'm pretty sure CSPAN is owned by a private company and not government run or subsidized.
  • Hot sports opinion: Tony Romo will be injured at some point causing the most promising season in years to go down the drain.
  • Found a website that will send you an email or text when a game involving your sport of choice is going down to the wire with a close score. It's pretty cool.
  • My favorite protest sign posted yesterday from Denver by a D Magazine reporter.
  • I washed my iPod shuffle in my jeans a couple of months ago, and I thought it was ruined. Nope, the little sucker fired up and started working the other day.
  • I saw a garbage truck yesterday which was violently launching trash containers after it emptied them. I could have watched that all day.
  • Mccully Culkin is 29 today. Worst. Actor. Ever. I hope he saved his money.
  • I finally bought sandwich stuff. I bet I've had six sandwiches in the last week.
  • I'm still enthralled by the Chinese. Criticize them all you want, but when all is said and done, they will be around and we won't be.
  • I finished the very odd movie Funny Games. Pretty shocking but I absolutely turned on the film when one of the "bad guys" turned to the camera and spoke directly to the audience ("Who are you pulling for?") Dumbest movie trick ever.
  • Video of the day: This man did not take Hurricane/Tropical Storm/Whatever Faye seriously.
  • Video of the day #2: I can't believe this didn't work (Extreme language warning from a couple of incredibly stupid kids that do not need to go forth and populate the earth. But it does involve fire which is always a bonus.)
  • Two people that sound scared to death whenever they speak: Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Texas Ranger GM Jon Daniels
  • I turned over to Fox News to see the haters' take on the DNC and caught a little bit of Bill O'Reilly. He seemed old, tired, and out of touch. And I used to at least be entertained by the guy.
  • I bet that Obama has a contingency speech in case it rains at Mile High Stadium on Thursday. "It's OK to take chances. It's OK to walk in the rain every now and then. It's OK to believe America can take a brave new step and go where it's never gone before. And it's OK to embrace the newness of this vision just like we embrace this refreshing rain together.")
  • The girl above in the pic is famous for the "whipped cream" scene in Varsity Blues.

I agree she as well as the rest of her family is very very elegant and well spoken! I can bet you that not one of her clan ever says anything like " go on AXE me a question" or talks or acts like 90% of the rest of them do! I can respect anyone who isnt so lazy that they dont even attempt to speak correctly! Any race as long as they dont like heathen's is fine by me! Hope that the rest of that race was watching and taking notes from her oitstanding speach last night!

I saw a deaf mute and a mime fighting the other day. Then a naked blind guy tried to intervene. I don't think he knew they were fighting, he must have thought they were doing something else.

My thoughts from her speech: So she can speak as well as any educated white person - big deal. I wondered if she and her husband got any preferential treatment in getting into college because of their race. Obama didn't even know what city he was in - I hate when they do all that crap of putting on a show (watching TV with some common white folks). His kids are out of control - not cute either. I bet she was fired from the law firm and the only job she could get was at city hall.

On a side note about Kennedy's speech. One of the worst things this country ever did was starting the welfare program. The second worst thing we will do is starting a universal heath care program.

Michelle Obama spoke about how hard her father worked and how dedicated her parents were. Nothing unusual for most children. She probably had the advantage of student loans to go to college. She spoke to values saying Obama was raised by a single mother who taught the same values. Obama was raised by his grandmother who had a job in a bank and was sent to a prep school. They do not share the same background; however, no one would know who listened to her speech.

Bringing up the 18 million voters who voted for Hillary Clinton was a slap in the face since she was overlooked as the VP!

Michelle Obama is a strong angry black woman whose true feelings came out with her comments about for the first time being proud of her country.

She referred to loving this country instead of saying loving my country.

It is not about race. It is about values, experience, character and judgement. Obama is not the better choice.

Being articulate does not make one smart, ESPECIALLY when that person is reading from a teleprompter!

Just listen to all the "uh's" and "umms" Obama "outside my pay grade" makes when he doesn't have one to rely on.

When did killing unborn babies become a moral value? The little gal from NARAL spoke at the lib convention yesterday and proclaimed pro-choice as a moral value. Go figure?

Everyone's question should be "HOW?" when we hear all these promises made during political speeches. That goes for BOTH parties. We might as well pass a law that "eliminates crime" or "cures cancer". Passing a law bill in Congress DOES NOT cure a problem in and of itself. Stop listening to promises and "positional statements", and start thinking before you vote. I think both parties are out of touch with reality, especially at the national level.

People are being taken for a ride with the Obama camp. It's no different than Hillary and Bill. You folks need to pay attention. Example; Obama say's he's not taking money from "Washington Lobbyist", come to find out he's take money from city lobbyist, State lobbyist and Lobbyist spouses. The trick, he's not taking the money directly from "Washington Lobbyist" but rather indirectly through their spouse(s). He talks the talk but doesn't walk the walk like all politicians for the most part. He's no different but why people are falling all over him like he's the Messiah I'll never understand. Hey, Obama and Michelle are smart, I take nothing from them. She's classy, intelligent and sophisticated, great, so is Cindy McCain. I truly believe people are just getting too rapped up in appearance, change and hope and not truly doing thier homework. The guy is running for the POTUS and took the American flag off his plane for heavens sake. I know you Liberals don't have a problem with that and think it's no big deal but the Clinton's didn't think a lot of things were a big deal and look at some of the crap they pulled. Liberals see what they only want to see and are pretty much blind to everything else.

You can best believe they speak ebonics out of the spotlight. Obammy can't speak unless someone else tells him what to say. Voters beware!!

I was struck by the pauses in her speech and the fact that she isn't like me. I didn't get to go to Princeton and law school. Then Barak just blew me away not knowing whether he was in St. Louis or Kansas City. Maybe he was tired but being President is a tiring job and if he doesn't know where he is today, I can't imagine his confusion when he's in the Oval Office and has 30 priority issues flying his way.

I'm no fan of John McCain either so this isn't a fun election for me but I was struck by how lost the Obama's look when they can't go completely scripted. Yikes.

Please pray for teachers this week because that skateboard kid in the video will be in some poor teachers classroom. No wonder teachers can't do their job with kids like that to deal with everyday.

Barry, you are such a sycophant for the Democratic party, we are not surprised that you thought Mrs. Obama did a great job. She certainly did her scripted duty in not portraying herself. The stiff looking, confused Mr. Obama in the "common white people's home" was really ridiculous. O'Rielly looked his age and not confused at all.

There IS a God and thank him and Obama for his VP choice. He doesn't stand a chance now- thankfully.

If he had gone with Hillary I don't know if I would have wasted my time voting.

Very strange assessment that delivering a speech well makes you smart.

I believe Michelle Obama is an articulate, intelligent black woman. However, I am not convinced that she does not have an agenda when it comes to the Afro-American population of this country, and I think that will become very apparent if she becomes First Lady. How many beyond rhetoric attempts has she made to assure the non-black voters of this country that she is truly unbiased in racial matters? Non-black candidates have to go to great lengths to satisfy the scrutiny of black voters and organizations such as the NAACP. Why shouldn't she be required to meet the same litmus test of race prejudice?

For all these disclosures, Biden remained unbowed. "I'm in the race to stay, I'm in the race to win, and here I come," he declared. That meant, of course, that his days were numbered. Newsweek soon reported on a C-SPAN videotape from the previous April that showed Biden berating a heckler at a campaign stop. While lashing out at the audience member, Biden defended his academic credentials by inflating them, in a fashion that was notably unbecoming and petty for a presidential candidate.

"I think I probably have a much higher IQ than you do, I suspect," Biden sniped at the voter. "I went to law school on a full academic scholarship." That claim was false, as was another claim, made in the same rant, that he graduated in the top half of his law-school class. Biden wrongly stated, too, that he had earned three undergraduate degrees, when in fact he had earned one—a double major in history and political science. Another round of press inquiries followed, and Biden finally withdrew from the race on Sept. 23.

Speaking of ethics, McCain also lied about cheating on his first wife and then marrying Cindy 5 weeks after the divorce. There is a reason you never hear much from Cindy.

Um, and 11:45 there must not be much to the situation you allude or it's all we'd hear about to increase Obamas chance at the POTUS.
But, interesting thought, we may want to keep that in the back of our minds and see if it gets drug out for last minute derailiness of McCains campaign if things start looking tooo goood for him.

Anonymous said...

11;45, people that do great deeds usually don't advertise it. That's why you don't hear much about Cindy. I did read where the hospital that Michelle works at at a salary of over 300 thousand dollars has been turning away low income people. So much for the little people.

The whipped cream girl in Varsity Blues is Ali Larter...whom is now in a supporting role on NBC's Heroes...The girl in your photo looks a bit heftier than Ali. Just sayin', that's all.

Wearing flag makes one patriotic? Displaying/flying worn, tattered, faded one makes you......?

Eloqution/articulation of course does not equate to IQ...........I keep telling myself that each time W walks to the podium.

Name calling equates to.......?
Bigotry takes us back to IQ or lack thereof.

I feel like Michelle Obama will be co president is Obama is elected. I am sure she is well spoken as she should be. Most wealthy people are when they speak in public. I am sure she is well educated in certain areas and the ones she is not I am sure there is someone from the campaign to inform her well enough so that she doesnt look stupid.

On a side note...I love sandwiches!

I like the trash men that pick up my trash...my trash cans are always up against my back fence and when I put something big out that they dont really have to pick up they do.

They girl in the pic has a nice body(she is not tooo skinny) but she needs some boobs!

BG....the Chinese will probably overhaul America in a lot of areas---including GNP in the next few years, but I'll take the Americans when the chips are down.....just ask another bunch of Orientals---the Japanese.

Don't worry about the Chinese... wealth is dribbling into their country and a rising middle class is touted as being as lazy and shiftless as all the others in Western Countries. Pretty interesting stuff out there too regarding the current generation of teenagers in China, and how they are basically growing up spoiled rotten... cruise the net for that.

Michelle was articulate and pretty, reading from the teleprompter. The substance of her speech didn't do much for me. What did she say that makes me think she as a First Lady would improve things...? And what did she say that was anything better than what Cindy McCain would say, or Laura has said for that matter. It was all motherhood and apple pie, but nothing more. (personally, its been a while since any party conv. did something for me).

Thought for the day... Everyone who tries to be President campaigns for the Magic word... CHANGE. So, what is the magic Change you want that Obama or McCain will give you. That they can actually pull off. Think a little about this. The Dems promised all sorts of change during the last elections.... where is it? There has been none.

Obama has been drifting to center since he clinched the nomination. All that change is starting to be tempered with realistic expectaions.

Personally, The President is the last elected official I want promising/bringing change to the country. His job is to protect and defend us, not mold us. The congress and my reps there need to be agents of change.
