In back of that Condo I stayed at, away from the ocean view, there was at least 25 White Ibis roosting on mossy stumps every morning. That's something a bird lover has etched into their memory as one of those things that CT Yankees don't see every day. Like the evening launch from Titus Ville. Actually saw the fuel tanks jettison with my Bi-Nocs. Too bad the job didn't work out. I might still be there. In those days, I could have sold and easily bought a ranch home like the Golden Girls owned. But, if it doesn't work out, you can't come back under the same circumstances. One of my regrets. Of many. Shoulda coulda woulda. Where's my hug?
No regrets whatsoever. If that had worked out, who knows if we'd have ever collided here. Besides, you make the most adorable snow angels it'd be a shame to waste a skill like that.

No, no, no. Robbers knew people walked into the market with $150 in cash so everybody stopped paying with cash, seriously. Everyone now swipes. It's the 21st century. We also have Blue Rhino here - but I get mine filled at the gas station's propane tank so I get to keep my shiny tank. Ark ark.

Robbers waiting outside our local Big Y? See, I told ya. We happen to have regular Police Patrols here and racial profiling. Ain't gonna a happen. 21st Century? Yes the only swipes are Baby Wipes. Every time you swipe, credit card companies win. You lose. While I learned the long method, you can always bring a calculator with you. It helps. That's "C-A-L-C-U-L-A-T-O-R ". Where my hug? Leg? Breast?

We couldn't prove our assertions, but neither did he. He's got money backing up his socialist goal. Fifty years from now, there will be books written about this dark period and that man. I read all about the 1960-63 era; drugs and sex addicts lived in the "maison blanche" back then. Nobody commands me if I don't respect him. Tru dat.

I knew Kennedy took prescription meds but you seem to be painting an acid tripping Marilyn Monroe into the picture. It doesn't matter, not if you remember what's important.

Short of nuclear war, there's nothing we can't undo.

BTW, I measure presidencies after they're done, it's one of the things that makes me accurate.

John Smith started the day early having set his alarm clock
(MADE IN JAPAN )
for 6 am ..

While his coffeepot
(MADE IN CHINA )

was perking, he shaved with his

electric razor
(MADE IN HONG KONG )

He put on a
dress shirt
(MADE IN SRI LANKA),

designer jeans
(MADE IN SINGAPORE)

and
tennis shoes
(MADE IN KOREA)

After cooking his breakfast in his new
electric skillet
(MADE IN INDIA)

he sat down with his
calculator
(MADE IN MEXICO)

to see how much he could spend today. After setting his
watch
(MADE IN TAIWAN )

to the radio
(MADE IN INDIA )

he got in his car
(MADE IN GERMANY )

filled it with GAS
(from Saudi Arabia )

and continued his search
for a good paying AMERICAN JOB.

At the end of yet another discouraging
and fruitless day
checking his
Computer
( made in MALAYSIA ),

John decided to relax for a while.
He put on his sandals
(MADE IN BRAZIL ),

poured himself a glass of
wine
(MADE IN FRANCE )

and turned on his
TV
(MADE IN INDONESIA ),

and then wondered why he can't
find a good paying job

in AMERICA

AND NOW HE'S HOPING HE CAN GET HELP FROM A PRESIDENT

MADE IN KENYA

You gotta keep this one circulating!

Can we say your accuracies are only verified by what you read after the episodes? Not what you felt at the time? Oh, there in lays the rub. So we wait to see how we felt at that time to see if we were right. Kind of like looking in the rear view mirror, no? He has yet to prove convincingly that the birthers are wrong. Martin Luther King was a North Vietnam communist sympathizer and NOTHING in print will convince me otherwise. But, history has been written and it's now a National Holiday. So fcuken what.

I don't know why you expect me to defend my position, I'm doing it for y'all. If I had to judge his presidency right this moment I'd have to say he's exceeded my expectations. As it is, I'm waiting until it's over on the off chance he'll twist his pecker in a knot over the next four years at which point you get to tell me how lame he WAS.

This isn't Egypt...we don't protest our own choices, we make the best of them. Hindsight being 20/20, Nixon was my favorite president. If not for him I would have had a fourth deployment to the great southeast Asian vacation.

"We don't protest our own choices"? Not my choice nor half the country's. The electoral college gave YOU this czar.
