Random Thoughts on a Spring Morning

What does it mean that unemployment figures released today indicate there are 6.66 million jobless? IMAO asked: “does that indicate there are 10,000 anti-Christ’s?”

I understand the Chinese compute age from the moment of conception. It is a custom dating to a time well before routine interaction with the West and Christianity. Adoption of the practice would seem necessary to the forwarding of any Pro-Life arguments here.

By now, you are up to your ears in the comparisons of the Cheney/Obama speeches. One commenter nailed it when he said the latter was a masterful campaign exercise while the former vice-president’s was a masterful oration on wise governance.

I’ve decided to take my Tea Party poster with the picture of “O” with the cig drooping from his lip, and change the text. Currently it says “Hail to the Thief” but it will soon be entitled: “Abortionist in Chief.”

For those who thought Cheney’s speech was a response to Obama should realize the AEI speech was scheduled weeks before the president’s. It’s just another case of turning the truth on its ear. Why does “the one” feel compelled to answer a former office holder?

I listened to the president introduce William Gates (a fully employed billionaire) on TV as secretary of defense yesterday. I didn’t even know he had applied for the job. I guess they had already filled the greeter position at Wal-Mart. Maybe Robert Gates can take that job.

One of the best “tag lines” I’ve seen is on Knowledge is Power: “Life is messy, eat it over the sink.”

As you view the current political scene, does it bring back memories of the old “Ted Mack Amateur Hour?” I ache for the return of those days when the most interesting thing was a performance by the juggling wallabies.

Speaking of old TV, are we experiencing a “Gilligan’s Island” re-run. You do remember that in a couple of episodes they put Gilligan in charge don’t you?

I just noted a headline on a news service: “Clinton’s sax sold at auction for AIDS research.” It’s amazing what scientists can gather from material left on a saxophone.

I spent $32.00 to get my certified birth certificate from the state of Iowa. I needed it to vote, drive, and re-enter from Canada. Obama has spent upwards of $1,000,000 in legal fees to fight demands for the same document. Wassup wit’ dat?

In the mad dash to find alternate labels to the reality of accurate description; e.g. “war on terror,” “axis of evil,” etc., we find a search for an alternate to Guantanamo Detention Facility. Among the suggestions were “offshore holding facility,” Korandemonium,” and my personal favorite, “Allah-holics Anonymous.”

Enough musing; it’s time to get back to work.

In His abiding love,

Cecil Moon

Hehe...Clinton's sax is surely the one and only cure for AIDS! Can't wait to see his reaction when he finds out :)

Take care, Elli
