(Update: Some of you thought I am on a break, but I am not. The 3 days I did not blog was my mini-break. I am back with my usual crap ;-))
I guess that is what one could call the mini – hiatus. Thursday evening I felt as if I had hit the proverbial wall. I was too tired to blog although I had a few thoughts floating in my head. While on Friday I read a lot of the blogs, I realized I was at a point where I probably needed a bit of a break.
Nothing big,, but several things competing for my time and with me always trying to pack in as much as I can. Well *A* had to work this Saturday and Sunday so I had to take care of some of the stuff around the house including the usual grocery and other shopping. Is Costco always crowded or what? And there was also playoff football, and since we are both ardent football fans we were both glued to the Teevee on Saturday and Sunday. Heck I did not even turn on my computer. And let me tell you that almost never happens.
I did manage to find out thanks to CNN, that there had been a “miracle in Missouri”. Now don’t get me wrong I am glad that they cops found the 2 missing kids, due to some sharp work on their part. But that was all CNN kept harping about. It’s like nothing else in the word mattered or nothing else was going on.
And then our joke of a president decided to grace us with more of his crap. This was on 60 minutes on CBS. While I did watch his speech last week, I was not gonna watch this interview again. But CBS, does have a transcript and here are some choice bits.
Ahh there it is you Iraqis, you should be more grateful to America for bombing your country to the stone age and helping foment a civil war. Guess what the power outages, general chaos, death squads, bombings..and all that? Fuggedaboutit! Show us some gratitude dammit!
Not at all. I think, I think I'm proud of the efforts we did. Uh, we liberated
that country from a tyrant. Uh, I think the Iraqi people owe the, the American
people a huge debt of gratitude. That's the problem, here in America. They
wonder whether or not there is a gratitude level that's significant enough in
Pelley: How can you escalate the war when so many people in this country seem to
be against it?
Bush: Uh, I, uh, I'm going to have to keep explaining. That's
why I'm doing this interview with you. Uh, Scott, uh, sometimes you're the
commander-in-chief, sometimes you're the educator-in-chief, and a lot of times
you're both when it comes to war. (smile)
That’s right America, all we need is more explanation from the educator –in-chief. So you see it’s our fault that we don’t fall in line behind the “king”.
