While I Was Plumbing

After the latest artillery exchange the President says that North Korea is ‘a serious threat’ and South Korean leader threatens ‘retaliation’.

North Korea has been a threat since the Truman administration. My Father and I both were awarded service medals for dealing with those mentals. They are going to be staging a number of provocations to prove the mettle of the newly designated heir-apparent Kim Jong-un who will be taking over from his father, Kim Jong-il. The boy has to show the military leaders that he’s tough and worthy of respect. The reality is that only China has the possibility of putting a lid on this insanity.

It is being reported that a Pakistani shopkeeper conned Afghan and Western officials into believing that he was a top member of the Taliban, and he received some major “gifts” to help government-Taliban negotiations. If I had ever been in Pakistan, I might remember that most of their shopkeepers were fairly astute negotiators, so it would be a logical move on the part of the Taliban, or a gutsy rip-off on the part of the shopkeeper. All officials are denying this happened for the record, but many have already admitted it off the record.

In the US I see that Government Leaders Can Skip Security, TSA Says. That should make everyone feel safer knowing that only the “little people” have to put up with these indignities. Of course, there are a number of Repub Congresscritters who don’t seem to remember that they are carrying a weapon when they show up at the airport. They say they need a weapon because DC is so dangerous, not realizing that the “little people” don’t get to carry weapons to protect themselves, and they don’t have the multiple layers of armed officers that the Congresscritters have available 24/7. “All men are created equal” but some are more equal than others.

But the good news is… it will provide ENDLESS amusement for all sane people everywhere!!!

Here’s the first installment:

Palin: ‘Obviously, We’ve Got To Stand With Our North Korean Allies’

Oops! Showing her true color’s perhaps? 😉 😆

You do realize that you add to her importance whenever you take notice of her. I ignore her because she knows that she will make more money as an “entertainment” figure, than a politician, so she won’t run for anything.

I have no interest in “Ma and Pa Kettle Go to Alaska”, or whatever enterprise she is involved in, and the only reason she is still a viable property is because so-called “serious people” talk about her.

The sooner people start ignoring her, the sooner she goes away to become a footnote to McCain’s failed Presidential bid.

Nahhh m8! I always add ridicule and scorn! They are the comedic gift that just keep on giving! 😆 I’ll take my laughs wherever I can get them. 😉

She’s just a noisy nuisance that is a constant source of hilarity m8! Ascribing any kind of importance, actual or implied, is giving her a modicum of credibility the stupid cow doesn’t warrant or deserve. McCain on the other hand, is a major senile roadblock that needs to be taken out ASAP! (Though, he is still hilariously funny, but unfortunately at the expense of everyone, especially the US Military). “Ahhh McCain… You’ve done it again!” 😛 Yup!

Lighten up man, have a laugh! You may as well enjoy it while you can. What else is there these days? *shrug* If everyone laughed at these clown as they richly deserve, they would crawl back under the bed’s the came from.

Actually, the guy in the White House is a bigger problem than McCain as he is deflecting the blame for his conservative actions on to liberals, and there are still “official” liberals who defend him.

I’m more convinced than ever that Mrs. Palin is dyslexic, and refuses to acknowledge it. People like her are best ignored so they will fade away. She is what the hard-core conservatives want people to watch, so they don’t look any deeper at the real troublemakers. Her bit is nothing more than an extension of the Limbaugh/Beck distraction, entertainers who hold the attention of the media while the real leaders screw people.
