If you have more than a couple of years wear on you, then you know life is a series of forks in the road.
Sometimes you pick left – sometimes right.
No matter which path you choose, things change and new opportunities open.
We’re putting this blog on hiatus for a while.
Life has gotten busy in other areas and, while popular, this blog has never been a 10,000 reader-a-day killer.
With other things grabbing our attention it’s been hard to find the motivation on a daily basis to crank out this dribble.
After almost a year and a half and more than 3,000 posts, there isn’t much left to say except the same stuff over and over.
So for now, our attention moves elsewhere and we’ll leave this up for those who stumble in and want cruise through the old stuff.
Maybe a bit later the fire will rekindle.
It’s been great and we thank you for dropping by.
“Today Mitt Romney had some ashes on his head. He’s not Catholic. It was soot from his campaign blowing up in his face.”
“Rick Santorum said today that during his 16 years in Congress, he was an outsider the whole time. You know what? After 16 years, you’re not an outsider. You’re just unpopular.”
“Santorum says that Satan has his sights set on the United States of America. And today Satan said he tries to avoid politics because it makes him feel dirty.”
“A known white supremacist has been working with a known black gang leader to make and distribute crystal meth. A white supremacist works side by side with a black gang member, and the Republicans still can’t agree on Mitt Romney. That doesn’t make any sense.”
“This guy Santorum is very conservative. Rick Santorum is so conservative he won’t watch a baseball game because there’s a pitcher and a catcher.”
A friend tipped off to this:
He did it again on Friday.
At the end of a speech about his economic plan before the Detroit Economic Club, when it felt as though Mitt Romney was just winging it, he said:
“I love this country. I actually love this state. This feels good being back in Michigan. Um, you know the trees are the right height. The, uh, the streets are just right. I like the fact that most of the cars I see are Detroit-made automobiles. I drive a Mustang and a Chevy pickup truck. Ann drives a couple of Cadillacs, actually.”
There’s nothing we can say you probably aren’t already thinking.
We’re not really surprised to see this so-called study.
Washington, DC is the best city in the country for people looking to cheat in their relationships.
That’s according to website Ashley Madison.
Its business is to hook up people looking to cheat so we guess they’d know.
More people per capita in the DC metropolitan area sign up for the website Ashley Madison than in any other city.
The chief executive officer of the company told the Washington Post he believes people who live and work in the District achieve success from taking professional risks, which often pay off, and the personality trait cause personal risks, too.
“The more successful you are, the more prone to cheating you are, and Washington is full of successful people looking for something outside their marriage.”
We immediately wonder how many are politicians and high government-types under an assumed name.
Plenty, you think?
Montana, if you don’t remember, is a long way from the ocean.
State representatives have advanced legislation to launch a study what Wyoming should do in the event of a complete economic or political collapse in the United States.
House Bill 85 passed on first reading by a voice vote.
It would create a state-run government continuity task force, which would study and prepare Wyoming for potential catastrophes, from disruptions in food and energy supplies to a complete meltdown of the federal government.
The task force would look at the feasibility of Wyoming issuing its own alternative currency, if needed.
Here it comes: House members approved an amendment by Republican Representative Kermit Brown, to have the task force also examine conditions under which Wyoming would need to implement its own military draft, raise a standing army, and acquire strike aircraft and an aircraft carrier.
Wonder where it would be based.
