There seems to be this under-current circulating thru America that if you involve yourself in political causes, that it will increase your brain power. As we listen to the candidates and think about what is being said, the brain processes the information, which in turn grows neural connections.
At least that is the way I understand it.
If you watched the presidential debates, your brain got as much exercise as it would have working a math problem. Especially if you cared which candidate won. They say the greater the levels of emotion or commitment further enhance the brain processes.
What a week! I just trashed another “I hate Jane Fonda Report” why is it people in this country cannot forgive? Sure she made mistakes, but who hasn’t, why is it some forty years later, we are still trying to kick her A** around? Isn’t it time to bury the hatchet and move on.
I also continue to receive a lot of negative stuff on Mr. Obama too.
News Flash! The election is over, see if you can somehow visualize that concept and place that between your ears people. It is over, it is time to move on, you people are kicking the wrong dog.
For the most part, you are now in the minority, like it or not. Give it up. It amazes me how popular the guy really is, I don’t ever remember in history a guy being so dog-gone popular (In my recorded history that is) and being hated so much at the same time. Here is a small sample of the drivel that comes in.
The message starts out with Greetings:
As I reflect on 2008, I can say we had a great year: Blacks are happy; Obama was elected. Whites are happy, OJ is in jail. Democrats are happy; George Bush is leaving office. Republicans are happy: Democrats will finally quit saying George Bush stole the election. And all of us are so happy; The election is finally over!
I think 2009 will be even better: Immediately after his inauguration, Obama will balance the budget, revive the economy, solve the real estate problem, solve the auto industry problem, solve our gas/alternative energy problem, stop the fires and mudslides in California, ban hurricanes and tornadoes, stop identity theft, reverse global warming, find Osama, solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, get rid of corruption in government and achieve world peace .
Then on the 7th day, He will rest.
My best wishes to you for 2009. Remember, however: “The government cannot give to anyone anything that it does not first take from someone else.” (Brother Phil)
“The government cannot give to anyone anything that it does not first take from someone else.” I mean gee whiz, if you are going to quote someone, at least have the decency to say who it was … My guess is Andrew Jackson on this one.
No one, Obama or otherwise could accomplish all of those stated goals during one presidential term, it is laughable to think so, and blatantly unfair to imply that it is even possible.
Of the fifteen listed goals I would be personally thankful if he accomplished one or two, to tell you the truth. While we are so busy kicking the wrong dog, I would be thankful if the government of the United States worked one week or one lousy day on a level that was not dysfunctional.
I am tiring of all these email critics, who send out this drivel, written by some ignorant fool and then passed on by someone who evidently shares the same short-sighted view of the world, which makes them what?

Bottling up your feelings I understand is actually a useful strategy for getting over a traumatic event in your life (the loss of your favorite hamster or Congressional seat). Sitting down to just undermine someone who hasn’t even had a chance to start, is moronic and lame. Evidently for some people pushing away memories of an awful experience (losing a national election) is more therapeutic than talking it out.
One thing for sure, Brother Phil where-ever he is, isn’t growing very many neural connections these days, he seems to be regressing. So here it is, like my wife says, “not sugar coated.”
“If you really do have my best wishes at heart, stop sending me crap like this. Stop passing it around to your family and friends.”
Now if you excuse me, I have other rats to kill. Like … Calling that truck guy and tell him we have another load of Republican horse-manure ready for the Home & Garden Center.”
Send this to all your family and friends Brother Phil.
