Random Reasoning's VI

An occasional column of random thoughts and observations.

  1. This weeks poll results: What grade would you give Barack Obama today? A, 48%; B, 48%; C, 0%; D, 0%; F, 4%. I'd say these results are pretty good, especially when I know a few Republicans voted.
  2. Former Vice-President Dick Cheney has been mouthing off lately by trying to scare us all because he is no longer in power. At least George W. Bush has the class to stay silent. Cheney; you need to take me up on that offer to go shoot all the feral pigs in Texas!
  3. Memo to Dick Cheney: Did you not hear the testimony of General Kevin Chilton before Congress on March 17? Seems like you guys were sleeping longer than Rip Van Winkle. Ever hear of cyber security. You know; that type of security that your administration was in large part ignoring. You think you were keeping us safe?
  4. And another thing Dick; you guys were sleeping for months before 911. How dare you? You didn't keep us safe. Your leadership was a disgrace!
  5. Speaking of disgrace; did you hear about the latest "Joe the Plumber" speech before the conservative Media Research Center? Seems like Joe Wurzelbacher was getting so much loving from the crowd that he told everyone he was "getting horny". It's Amazing they can't find somebody that knows something to talk before that group.
  6. Obama's final four picks look good to me.
  7. Message to Pope Benedict: The church is not in the "forefront in the battle against AIDS." Truth be known; God willing, the church is centuries behind. Your condom message is counterproductive to humanity and was a pathetic message to send to a region so ravaged by AIDS. You need to pray on that!
  8. Ever wonder if Adam and Eve were Neandertal? Where does that leave us?
  9. There were a record number of babies born in the United States in 2007, 4.5 million of them. The sad thing was that 40% were born to single moms. Seems like there needs to be a few more condoms worn in this country.
  10. At least the nations of France and Germany have blasted the Pontiff's message to Africa.
  11. I like the Obama quote: "If you're walking down the right path and you're willing to keep walking, eventually you'll make progress."
  12. Isn't it great to have a President that can speak English? I think it should be a requirement of the job.
  13. Hat's off to Bill Richardson of New Mexico for repealing the death sentence in his state and requiring that "life in prison" means life in prison. You just saved your citizens millions of dollars in taxes.
  14. I wonder what Phil Gramm is trying to mess up now?
  15. If Blue Cross in Rhode Island is a non-profit and they donated $20 million dollars to another non-profit, the Rhode Island Foundation, why can't policy holders take a charitable deduction off of their income tax for part of their premiums?
  16. Did you see where the Swedish Countess, Marie Douglas-David can't get by on $43 million which translates into $53,000 per week? Now there's a women that can really destroy the institution of marriage.
  17. Let's all say a prayer for those 4 Oakland, California police officers.
  18. Barney Frank reminds me of Sister Superior; I want those names and I want them now. If you don't cooperate you'll stay after school.
  19. Message to Barney: I think you should do your job. Singling out some folks at AIG that had signed contracts is not it. AIG is not totally at fault here; Congress is. Some of those employees were getting death threats and need confidentiality. It was Congress; although a Republican Congress at the time, that deregulated us into this mess. Now go fix it - damn it!
  20. One more message to Pope Benedict: As the wise prophet once said; "if you're going to flap it, wrap it."



  1. Deductions for health insurance premiums given away to other non-profits, what a marvelous idea!

  2. Yo Tom, M.H. here. Interesting thoughts as always!!! What I could do with $53,000 a week, PLEASE!! Neandertal..........maybe.....simian......yes
    I'm not saying the death penalty is right or wrong, but states having to reconsider it, because they can't afford to house the people, is quite the sign of how deep we are in the hole that has been dug.
    Don't even get me started on the Pope!!!!!
    Will TTYL!!
    Say hi to Sandy!!!!!

  3. I thought that Neandertal might throw some people. Actually, it is the same as Neanderthal Man which is an extinct sub species of humans (Homo sapiens Neanderthalensis) that inhabited Europe and west and central Asia 100,000 to 40,000 BC. Scientist today refer to Neanderthals as Neandertal. They co-existed with modern humans and recent DNA studies seem to indicate that they probably did not interbreed. That's right; they actually have Neandertal DNA.

  4. Someone should have considered placing a condom in the Pope's mouth before he spoke....

    My 16 year old niece will become a single Mom in July. We, the taxpayer, will be footing the medical bills and more for these unwanted, unplanned children being born and raised by children. Teaching abstinence is a joke and a huge waste of tax payer money. Pass out the condoms!
