Texas tried to secede from the U.S. but misspelled
the word and voted to succeed the U.S.. When asked
about their decision the governor asked the press
to be more pacific.
Given the decline of formalwear Thailand has announced it has changed its name to Teeshirt.
In a similar release Bangkok changed its name to
Jusfondlin.
This used to be an exciting city to live in, a bomb going off someplace once in a while, soldiers shooting at mobs of people, people shooting at police and soldiers, now it's turned into a vanilla icecream cone. Yeah, there is a little action going on down south, about 55 hundred popped in four years, but I don't have a desire to eat muslim type foods. I need a pork chop or two and a little ham with my eggs. Plus I'm too old to start growing a beard.
Trains can be fun, they have had 7 derailments in four months, always exciting wakeing up, upside down in the dead of night.
The chrome pole palaces are as boring as all get out, if you've been to one you have seen them all, sort of like the temples here, all glitter with a big guy sitting with one hand in his lap and the other raised, like he's saying HI!

No matter how quite it is here It's still much better than living in Oakland, Chicago, or Detroit if your white.
Also trying to figure out who is going to be the Rep, runner for the big house in 16.

The move is on for Detroit to get another bailout
from Herr Obama. Seems like the ultimate
entitlement. American taxpayer dollars to be
transferred to a corrupt, mismanaged city ... a
reward for incompetence and greed.

Expect Chicago to follow suit.

The precedent is astounding in its implications.

The implications are profound because if Detroit is bailed out
with more Obama funny money there is no reason for any city
in the country to take responsibility for its decisions on
fiscal matters.

The message matters: a Detroit bailout means there is no
accountability on the part of municipal government to manage
its affairs. Detroit says "Oops" and gets a 50 year old
mulligan.



Next stop: Chicago.

Back in 1962 I sold real estate in a town called Roseville just on the otherside of the Detroit city line of 8 mile road, for almost a year before I reenlisted. No one with half a brain, if you were white, would ever think of going past 8 mile road into Detroit at night and that was in 1962.
It would not surprise me at all if Chicago, did the same thing. Liberal socialism at work.

As things are going there Motown is destined to become
Nomotown.

With something like 300 square blocks having been abandoned
I'd suggest the smartest thing would be to invite the
Hollywood folks to buy it up, pay taxes, and fix it up.
That ain't gonna happen given the hypocrisy of the Left, but
it would actually prove their worth beyond making headlines
in the MSM.

Bill, When you look at the Forums and polls section of Topix at least the first 10 or 15 topics. I have noticed that there are some really strange and weird, possable a few mentally deranged people out there.
They cover everything from race to the government trying to spy on and enslave everyone. I do realize that there are about 300 million folks in America but damn if the ratio is something like 1/4 of 1% of the population, America is in deep trouble. How do these people function in life when everything is a sinister plot aimed at them. Or on the other hand there are the caring, helpers who feel that their way is the true path to peace and happyness.
Let us march so that people know how we feel, here's a FLASH for that bunch, "I don't care how you feel" not only that, "I don't care if you all die tomorrow". It would be a nicer place if people would just learn how to live their lives and keep their nose out of other people thoughts and ideas. Please stop trying to tell me how to think, what to like, or who to like, who to interact with and where to live.
When a phony bastard like Al Sharpton gets the ear of the President of America, it is one sad day.

I agree with you on the "strange and weird" and "mentally
deranged" point you made, but I think the population of such
people is pretty much distributed equally around the planet ...
with the exception of the Middle East where Islam dominates.

Remember the little game of "connect the dots?" You would get
out a pencil and go from #1 to whatever and you would have a
picture of, let us say, a cow? Today people do the same with
political or fiscal issues, but instead of connecting #1 to #2
and so on, they take 100 dots and toss them into the air, then
build their own cow.#7 becomes #35,#86 becomes #7 ... what
the hell, if it all fits your conspiracy theory it must be
right! You drew yourself a conspiracy cow!

In this way the way Right and way Left are the same. The
"Reverend-without-a-degre e" Sharpton and the whackos on the
edge of the Right are the same. They see conspiracies every-
where. Anything remotely resembling moderation is ridiculed
and assaulted with the term "capitulation." Emotion defeats
reason.

If there has ever been a more meaningless phrase
concocted by a President than our need for a
"national conversation" about race after the
Zimmerman trial, I haven't heard it.

Mr. President, may we have a "national conversa-
tion" about fiscal responsibility?

Mr. President, may we have a "national conversa-
tion" about the need of cities to take full
responsibility for their actions rather than
expect the federal government ... meaning
someone other than themselves ... bail them
out?

Mr. President, may we have a "national conversa-
tion" about the federal government's presumption
that it has the right to access any information
it wishes from private individuals by whatever
means?

Mr. President, may we have a "national conversa-
tion" about the government's presumed right to
interfere in other nation's affairs, oftentimes
without our knowledge or consent?

Mr. President, may we have a "national conversa-
tion" about federal interference in the affairs
specifically granted to the states?

Mr. President, may we have a "national conversa-

the 5th Amendment or altogether refusing to
testify at all .... without penalty?

Mr. President, may we have a "national conversa-
tion" about needless presidential trips costing

Listening to the CNN/BHO network .........

I tried to listen to another campaign-style
speech by Obama, but the strident semi-hysterical
tone was a complete turn-off.

Mr. President, pick one or two subjects and say
what you have to say and get off the stage. We
used to laugh at Fidel Castro's 2 hour long
diatribes, but he now has a challenger.

Does he ever shut up?
