Feeling A Bit Snarky

I’m a bit annoyed, as about 40 different types of aircraft have been flying overhead today in preparation for the 75th birthday bash for Eglin Air Force Base, and the cloud cover has kept me from seeing them.

This evening the road paving crew are back with their noisy behemoth machines and irritating back-up beepers. They are a bit further away, but I have windows open because of the nice temperatures.

With that in mind I would like to point out to Dr. Krugman, that he is off the mark on his Birds and Bees blogging. He may take the holy writ of the priests at the National Bureau of Economic Research that the recession began in December of 2007, but if you look at the price of oil and the unemployment numbers for all of 2007, it was obvious to Main Street that things were turning bad. If the recession had started in December of 2007, Christmas sales figures wouldn’t have been as abysmal as they were.

Here’s a news flash for the econ types – the volatile energy and food segments of the inflation index are two of the largest segments of the household budgets for real people. When they spike, real people have a problem.

From PZ Myers: you know you are scrapping bottom when the Ku Klux Klan issues a statement disavowing any association, past, present, or future, with you. It must make Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church proud to know they are too offensive for the Klan.

Now all of us native Southerners know that the Klan is patriotic good ole’ boys who put their hands over their hearts when the National Anthem plays, know all the words to the Pledge of Allegience (and know that it has nothing to do with four witches standing), get tears of joy in their eyes when B-52 bombers take off over their trailer houses, and love their country so much they want it all for themselves and all them darkies can just go home to wherever they came from (the possibility of they themselves going home to wherever they came from is discounted, since the average Klansman couldn’t find England on a map if you paid him a six-pack of Bud to do so). So clearly when ole’ Phelpsy started protesting at military funerals, that was one bridge too far for the KKK, yessiree!

Sounds like the ideal cage match to the death to me, so they can determine whose side G-d is on. 😉

You are probably right about the military funerals as the point of separation. The Klaniacs do love uniforms, flags, and things that go boom.
