Mid Week Chill


Well, I am still somewhat lost, but here is the good news, I am making good time.  It is already Wednesday.  So things are truly looking up, there might be hope for me yet?  I am just trying to stay cool in an increasingly hotter and hotter world.  It was for instance, so hot yesterday, I saw a dog chasing a cat and they were both walking!  (drum roll, take my wife please!)

I thought I had read it all yesterday.

Yesterday I read where a lady selling cosmetic’s (I won’t say who, they usually drive a PINK CAR) was so irritated because another housewife in Florida would not open the door, that she took a dump on the woman’s porch and left a rather, how shall we say this?

A rather fragrant reminder on her porch that was surrounded by toilet paper.

Now I thought that was bad, but this morning I am reading of a six year, scientific study that was done in New Zealand on Sauvignon Blanc, as a combination of passion fruit, asparagus, and cat’s pee.  Uh huh, you read that right.  I suppose if you had a whole lot of cat’s pee it obviously wouldn’t be great.  Isn’t it amazing what a little can do these days?

Well, Whadya expect, it IS Wednesday for cryin’ out loud.

A medical student in New Jersey said that he was suspended from the school of medicine and dentistry for insisting that he’s a white African-American.  He was born in Mozambique before moving to the United States, and described himself in a class assignment on identity as “White African American.”  The faculty of the school, having nothing better to do I suppose, berated him and matter of factly stated “that no white person could refer to themselves as White African American.”

When the student persisted, he was suspended for two years, and he is now suing the school.  Now it seems to me, that if one was born in Cape Town South Africa for instance, to parents of say, German heritage on your fathers side (there are a lot of them in Africa I am told) and your mother was American, that he/or she as the case may be,  could very well be “White-African American.”

What do you call someone who drops out of medical school ….. A dentist.

An Ohio teenager was suspended from his fundamentalist Baptist school for taking his school girlfriend to a dance in public (her senior prom).  He was said to have violated a Baptist contract against dancing and rock music.  I hear that is why you never see them actually dancing, they don’t want anyone to think they are making love standing up. Give the kid a break, with all the other evil stuff going on in this world, you would think they have a better place to expend their energies.

How about all these Amish kids riding around in their buggies with open containers of beer, and no one is doing a thing about that!  Huh!  Huh!

With all the religious turmoil and persecution in the world, with all the bullying of people around the globe by religious zealots, it is comforting to know, that we have our very own version of the Taliban right here in our own back yard.  I believe there is a verse in the bible, where it states, “that David danced before the Lord.”

I rest my case your honor.

Well, I crossed the line on religion (I am not supposed to do that here) so I might as well go for the entire nine yards this Wednesday morning.   Here is a little political morsel for you to chew on.  I mean, I am already in trouble for the above, might as well take the shot.

Joe The Plumber says that he is quitting the Republican Party because they support excessive government spending.  He opposes any cuts in defense, Social Security (by the way, that runs out of money in 2037 so you better get signed up ASAP), Medicare, or Medicaid, and noted that he keeps his kids away from homosexuals (I am not making this up).

Isn’t it wonderful, we still live in a country where you are allowed to regale in your stupidity.

It has been rather slow here lately, not a whole lot to panic about.  You remember it wasn’t that long ago that we were all in a panic about this pig flu (swine flu) and walking around like zombies with surgical masks on and wearing buttons that said … the sky is falling, the sky is falling.  Where infectious diseases are concerned, I guess panic is good.  Without panic in this country, nothing really happens.

So you need panic, we have to have panic, if we did not have it, well, everything as we know it would stop.

Which is kind of strange, over 500 million people will contact malaria this year, and possibly 1 million or more will die from this water borne disease, but here in America and the rest of the west, there is no panic, no fear.  Conversely, for the swine flu, test kits have already been shipped to all fifty states, and there most likely will be a cure or vaccine out by late fall for the disease.

I didn’t panic then, I am not feeling panicky right now, I am just trying to chill, take it easy and make it to the weekend.  Men don’t show their emotions, except rage, because it takes strength to show soft emotions and most men do not posses that inner strength, they would rather go out and just kill something for instance, than talk to it.  Most men just don’t have that kind of soft strength that is required to get by in this day and age, so they panic.

The next time you find yourself in a sticky situation, feel a tinge of panic rising to the surface, which is in all reality going to be some time today or tomorrow, remember that you do have a choice in how you handle it.  Just because God gave you that extremely large forehead, this is no reason for you to take it personal and bail out on the Republican Party, there is still a lot of work to be done.

We now return you to your regular programming.

Think about it.
