What It's About

Welcome to my blog! I ruminate on random thoughts rattling around in my brain. Subjects range from reality TV to current events and everything in between. Whether you agree with me or not, I welcome your comments. God gave you the ability to think for yourself, and this country was founded based on the right to have your own opinion.

Random Thoughts

Some things kicking around in me noodle tonight:
  • Sad to see Walter Cronkite died today. 92 years old. Can't say he didn't live a full life. Can remember watching him when I was kid. Don't think polictical views matched, but he was still one of the best. Very sad.
  • "We have to spend money to keep from going bankrupt" - Joe Biden, VP of the USA, explaining to AARP why the health care bill has to pass. So, we have to spend even more money we don't have to keep from losing it all. Do what? And, to think we keep electing these guys (D's and R's) over and over again. Guess we'll get what we deserve eventually. Most likely sooner rather than later.
  • So Tiger Woods missed the cut at the British Open this week. It happens. To hear the media talk, you'd think the world was coming to an end. And, while it might be, don't think Tigger missing the cut will have anything to do with it. Even CNN.com had it as the lead story this afternoon. Geez, Louise. Don't get me wrong. He's a great golfer and I appreciate that kind of talent. Still, not ready to call him the best ever like some others want to.
  • This week's Deadliest Catch was emotionally riveting. We got to see the humane side of Sig. Could always sense it was there somewhere. Hope Jake's family is doing better.
  • For those of you who watch Big Brother but have not found out what Chima said last night, she reminded everyone that Braden had called Kevin a "beaner" and then, "He called you a whore, Julie. Yes, he did." Supposedly, "beaner" is a derogatory word about Mexicans. Never heard it, myself. Funny thing is, Kevin ain't Mexican. Still, as Julie said, it was one of the most memorable speeches in Big Brother history, and few people heard all of it.
  • "Those who hammer their guns into plows are destined to plow for those who do not." Thomas Jefferson. Always knew he was one of the smartest men who ever lived in this great country of ours.
  • "The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him." - G.K. Chesterton. Thank you, Veterans, for loving us!

That's all I got for now. Have a great weekend!
