Really?

Been some things in the news which make me think "really?" when I either see the headline or read the article. Just in case you have missed them, thought I'd share some with you. Might even add a snide remark or two. So, if you're ready...

  • Someone has finally figured out what killed King Tut...they think.  The conclusion was he died of malaria.  Sure glad that issue has been solved.  Can't tell you how many nights of sleep I've lost over that.  Anyway, not sure why it's been so important to figure out.  Ain't gonna change our world today as far as I can figure.  But, if someone out there is happy this may have finally been resolved, more power to 'em;
  • President Obama took credit for preventing a depression with the stimulus package passed last year.  That's the good thing about "preventing" something like that.  No one can really confirm or deny that you are right.  Just like W can say he prevented the next Hitler when he invaded Iraq.  Short of going to the parallel universe where these things happened because of something we didn't do, no one can really know for sure things were stopped or not.  Just so I can feel in the spirit, will now take credit for preventing the sun from not rising and not setting every day because I told them not to stop; 
  • Saw a headline that said "Bill Maher Calls Dick Cheney A Liar."  Who cares? If you've ever seen Maher's show on HBO, this should not come as a shock to you.  He's as far to the left as Rush Limbaugh is to the right.  Plus, what difference does it make?  Maher is an actor, not a politician or leader of any sort, and Cheney is no longer in office. Seems like some writer needs more to do with their time.  Now, if he'd said Cheney was right all along, THEN you might have a story;
  • There are billboards popping up in Minnesota and Wisconsin asking if we're missing W, yet.  No one seems to want to take credit for them.  Even if we were, what difference would it make?  Bush has served his two terms allowed by our Constitution and can't come back even if he wanted to and could somehow get re-elected.  Seems like the money could have been spent advertising someone who can actually run for office.  Guess some folks really do have more money than sense;
  • That's something else about the dude who flew his plane into the IRS building in Austin, TX.  You reckon he had all his faculties about him?  Anyway, when you consider close to 200 people work in that building, it's lucky there were only 2 people killed (one of which is apparently him) and 13 people injured.  Only two of them went to the hospital.  Who knows what he was trying to accomplish?  Even set his house on fire before he did it.  Guess he wanted them to get an empty lot when they foreclosed.  More and more people want to go out in a blaze of glory (pardon the pun) nowadays.  Media feeds right into 'em, too, with their non-stop coverage of even the most minor things.  Not that this was minor.  Have to admit my first thought was another terrorist attack, too.  Sad sign of the times, I suppose;
  • So Tigger has made his statement about what happened.  Whoop-de-doo.  Like have said before, this should be between him and The Mrs.  Have read comments saying he's being selfish for having the "press conference" on a Friday, a day when the tour is playing.  Other comments include he's taking away from the Olympics.  Hard to believe all the major networks covered this sham live, not to mention all the cable stations.  If that's what the public wants, then shame on us.  S'posedly the reason he had the conference when he did was cuz he has to head back to rehab after a week-long break.  Wonder why he couldn't have waited until he was done to make his statement/apology?  Could be just another step in the rehab process.  Might have been more interested if the lapdog pressmen that attended could have asked questions.  Probably not since they would have most likely asked wiffle-ball questions.  Sure the press will do the bathroom dance again when he finally plays in a tournament, then again when he wins.  Can hardly wait...; 
  • A friend of mine posted this on Facebook the other day:  People will always be more violently opposed to the wearing of fur than leather for the simple reason that it's far safer to harass rich women than biker gangs.  Think about it;
That's all I got for now.  Interested to hear what you might have to say.  Might give me a different angle to think about.  Not such a bad thing sometimes.  Please feel free to leave a comment below or shoot me an e-mail at ScotPS23@yahoo.com

Y'all keep 'em straight out there.

  1. Borrowers who seek foreclosure help early are much more likely to work out a solution, no matter how dire their situation. Based on your situation, your lender may be able to provide the foreclosure help that you need.
