Friday Wrap Up

 Today I present to you just some of the news that apparently wasn't fit to print in the Main Stream Media this week. You know, even if I tried I could not make this stuff up.

This first story actually really really didn't surprise me much ....What DID surprise me is that I am not alone in thinking this! 
" Using his law enforcement experience and data drawn from the FBI’s behavioral analysis unit, Jim Kouri has collected a series of personality traits common to a couple of professions.
Kouri, who’s a vice president of the National Assn. of Chiefs of Police, has assembled traits such as superficial charm, an exaggerated sense of self-worth, glibness, lying, lack of remorse and manipulation of others.
These traits, Kouri points out in his analysis, are common to psychopathic serial killers.
But — and here’s the part that may spark some controversy and defensive discussion — these traits are also common to American politicians. (Maybe you already suspected.)" Read more here.  

And speaking of politicians, it seems our illustrious leader doesn't seem to think that "We, the people" can possibly be able to understand the intricacies of the treasury and our debt crisis as well as "professional politicians" nor should we be expected to. We are too wrapped up in our own lives to have a clue I guess. His words, not mine.   Have a listen to this.
Of course, being the "Paid Political Professional" that he is, Thursday it seems he got his panties in a bit of a wad and stormed out of the debt ceiling meeting stating that all the progress made so far had been "erased.  Now I ask you... How professional is that? Acting like a kid that doesn't get his way he threw himself a little hissy fit. Geesh....

Ok, I suppose that's enough politics to last for awhile.  Unless you are this Oak Park Mi woman who has been cited and faces possible jail time of 93 days for growing vegetables in her front yard.  Apparently the city manager has a thing against vegetables.  What I want to know is what did a vegetable ever do to him?

Alright, since we are on the topic of food, I'm willing to bet that most of you haven't heard this alarming tidbit about the radioactive contamination of meat that has made its way into Japanese Markets.
"If we were to eat the meat everyday, then it would probably be dangerous," Hosono said at a news conference Tuesday. "But if it is consumed only in small portions, I don't think it would have any long-lasting effects on the human body."  
Excuse me??????

Alrighty then.......   On a lighter note... well it's not really lighter, actually it's kinda heavy, but I'm gonna leave you with this one. In North Texas this week a  woman gave birth to a 16 lb baby boy.  Can you say Holy Roly Poly!!!  This could be a state record.  They always say things are bigger in Texas!!  And now I can  prove it!
      ~~~~~~  Hey ... I'm Just Sayin' ...  ~~~~~~


  1. Well since most politicians are crooks that makes sense.Japanese people should hang their criminals who think it is safe to eat radioactive meat.Gee I wonder if their veggies are on the market?


  2. The biggest problem we have right now are the professional politicians who don't give a damn about anything but their careers. The hell with their constituents.
    As to the Japanese, hopefully none of that meat makes it into our markets. Or do they know something we don't?
    The family who is growing veggies in their yard needs a good constitutional lawyer. Surely there's one out there willing to represent them.
    All I can say about the woman who had the 16 pounder is....yikes!!

  3. Hey China, Glad your back! You would have to believe that the veggies are affected as well. The cattle eat the grains and feed..... The Japanese haven't been honest about whats going on since day 1 so I guess we don't really have any reason to trust that it isn't in the veggies as well.

    Momlady, I totally agree... we need to get rid of 98% of the politicians who are in office.
    LOL@ yikes. I thought the same thing when I read about it. That baby is big enough to freaking walk!!

  4. I've always felt that most politicians were mentally ill. Most feel superior and that they know better than the "common" man. They self-aggrandize and are focused on how choices they make will further their own short sighted agenda. In their own bubble, they fail to recognize there is a bigger order and power than themselves. They open up a door that lets evil in to manipulate their thought processes. We suffer from the results.

    It used to be that your front yard was your garden. People thought it was ridiculous to waste all that space with something as useless as grass, but now, it's okay for people to have quirky ornamentals (gnomes, flamingos, cherubs, etc) in their front yard, but put something productive in and now we send them off to jail. And in FL a man isn't even allowed to fly the American flag in front of his house. Ay... the insanity.

  5. Rose, back in "the day" they used to call them victory gardens. It's a crazy world we live in!
