This morning as it is my nature, I took a stroll around the internet and found some interesting things. I found out that Mr. Bush is still blaming everyone else for the ills that are infecting the country, and steadfast refuses to assume any kind of responsibility for any action on his part.
Two of his claims are a real hoot.
He says “Americans voted for Mr. Obama because of me.” Which is ludicrous. And number two this is really rich … Now he is actually blaming other governments around the world for the invasion of Iraq. Incredible. Like Margaret & Helen are so fond of saying …. “Sit down and shaddup.” More of his drivel here.
Now this next piece or comment is going to “sound like sour grapes” and more than likely it is to some extent, but it still needs saying. WordPress,com consistently over and over, runs all these “fastest growing blogs” on their home page, when in fact, they are bogus and are actually not fastest growing anything.
Fastest Growing Blog Of The Day
Today it is http://naturalborncitizen.wordpress.com/ Now here is a joke. One post. ONE LOUSY POST and these idiots say it is a “fastest growing blog.” Give us a break. If WordPress.com isn’t even going to bother reading some of these blogs they “say are the fastest growing” then they should just flat out discontinue the practice as advertising them as same. One post on one page, doesn’t constitute a fast growing blog in any way shape form or manner.
This is not the first time it has happened, and I am sure they will pull it down as fast as they can. To cover their sorry ass. (Pardon my French but my English isn’t much better!)
This is just another insult to all the people who work hard at trying to provide something substantial each and every day to the wordpress.com forum and should be discontinued if they are not going to be at least “half-way honest about it.” It is a joke and a fraud.
If you are new to WordPress.com and actually believe that you have a “shot at being a number one blog” here, then you best rethink your position on it. Because at best it is a crap shoot and nothing more. Luck of the draw kind of thing. Unfortunately for you and a lot of others just like you, hard work, quality of material, number of hits, has nothing to do with any of it. It is not gonna happen. You people at WordPress,com need to clean up your act.
Forget the tide
Have we got a deal for you, no more laundry days, that sound good? A scientist at the University of Massachusetts is trying a different approach to dirty clothes. He has invented a technique that impregnates fabric fibers with bacteria engineered to consume organic materials. If he’s successful, your clothes would in fact, eat their own dirt. The only problem: You have to keep the bacteria alive by waring the shirt a lot. Or as the scientist puts it, “You could end up having to feed your shirt instead of washing it.” C’mere honey, I want to give you a big ol hug.
Yule Time Ring
August Memmi was ringing his bell at a Salvation Army kettle in Harrisburg, Pa. this week when someone handed him a very special donation a rive-diamond ring. The young donor, who wished to remain anon. explained that he had purchased the ring for his mother, with money he made by mowing lawns. His mother died this year, and he said he wanted to put the jewelry to good use. Every now and then we run across something positive and good, and feel it is necessary to share this with you. This is the true spirit of Christmas, the story is heartwarming. There might be hope for mankind yet.
Snitches Needed in Albuquerque New Mexico
The Albuquerque Police Department is running classified ads in newspapers to recruit informants. The help-wanted ad invites “people who hang out with crooks” to make some extra cash by sharing information with the police, up to $50 for drug-crime info and $700 for murder. Now I know this sounds crazy, but it is true.
The ad also assures potential applicants that their résumés won’t be scrutinized. It says “drug use and criminal record okay.” Now who says that New Mexico isn’t progressive? They are borrowing a procedure right out of the Washington DC playbook. “Uh, don’t worry about the guy standing here with the gun, he is my character witness from my last job.”
Pull My Finger!
Don’t you just love Thanksgiving and Uncle Frank? A kid in Florida, 12 years old, has been arrested for farting in school! Yes I said “arrested.” The arresting officer was summoned to the school by the schools’ principle and he was charged with “continually disrupting his classroom environment by breaking wind and shutting off several computers.” (Now I know that is not a fact, I do it all the time, and my computer never shuts down, never.) The kid was later released to the custody of his “maternal” parent (whatever that means?). Oh by the way, any resemblance to anyone living or dead, or named Uncle Frank is purely co-incidental and should not be represented as a representation of a wordpress.com fact or fast growing blog.
The Chinese college student who climbed into a Panda Enclosure so he could hug a Panda Bear … Which should be pretty self explanatory … Even George Bush could figure this one out, maybe.
Is the world going nuts, or is it just me?
Now I am back to my stated mission in life …. My absolute driving force, that burning desire that stokes the fires of my soul …. Saving the world one post at a time here in the loving arms of WordPress.com.
