Reading Room

Hillary is looking more and more like the Secretary of State. They don’t seem to want to say anything until after thanksgiving though. I guess they don’t want us thinking anything about turkeys except as tasty sandwiches. Meanwhile it appears Sarah Palin wanted you to think about turkeys. This shot was set so perfectly it couldn’t have been a mistake. The guy working kept looking around like, “Would you guys hurry up, I have work to do!“ It did it’s job of keeping her in the news anyway. On a mildly similar note, semantics apparently went right over his head. This guy took gettin' it on with a hot chick to the extreme.

More death in front of cameras. This guy killed himself on a webcam at a body building web site. Not the best way to build muscle if you ask me.

Jim Jones for national security chief ? Just keep him away from my kool aid.

Bill Richardson as Commerce Secretary? Why? Look Richardson is highly qualified for a lot of posts but this doesn't seem logical to me. Looks like he will get something though. Warming up in the bullpen, Gov. Denish!

The new setting a date for withdrawal in Iraq agreement says some of the piggish contractors got thrown under the bus. They might be prosecuted under Iraqi law. Sad that other countries need to provide accountability for our countries actions. What happened to that vaulted personal responsibility? Just a talking point for the right. In the meantime Iraqis are burning Bush in effigy on the same pedestal that use to hold the Saddam statue.

Obama is asking vetees about their gun habits with this question: Do you or any members of your immediate family own a gun? If so, provide complete ownership and registration information. Has the registration ever lapsed? Please also describe how and by whom it is used and whether it has been the cause of any personal injuries or property damage.” This has the gun buddies confirming their fears. It's good they didn't ask Dick Cheney.

Speaking of guns, radical islamists say they will fight the Somali pirates. Guess they may be good for something afterall.

We want our money back!
The United States has asked four oil-rich Gulf states for close to 300 billion dollars to help it curb the global financial meltdown, Kuwait's daily Al-Seyassah reported Thursday.
Quoting "highly informed" sources, the daily said Washington has asked Saudi Arabia for 120 billion dollars, the United Arab Emirates for 70 billion dollars, Qatar for 60 billion dollars and was seeking 40 billion dollars from Kuwait.

Looks like another "too big to fail" Citibank will get some government money. The biggest investors in the company is our oil money. Wouldn't want the mid east oil titans to lose their money now would we?

They've served their purpose and now you should forget about the whole Osama Bin Laden scam. Al queda in decline.

Here's another great wingnut idea. Put your social security into the stock market! Hell, lets just privatize everything. We could be the new Somalia! No government, you're on your own!

Support small business but remember that "smokin' ain't allowed in school".

Fred Thompson seems to get the clue...wingnuttia is on the wane. Going back to acting.

Ashely Simpson and that Fall Out Boy guy have their baby, name him Bronx Mowgli Wentz. Good luck BM.

Madonna gets a quickie....divorce. He doesn't want her money and she probably can't make a pie so what good is she.

Jodie Sweetin of Full House is spliting from her 2nd husband. Line forms here for #3.

Paris Hilton still loves the homely Good Charlotte guy even though they broke up. She has denied there is anything going on with Prince William or her ex, Stavros Niarchos.

Speaking of Prince William. Who woulda guessed it, his wanger is in the news. Man can't a guy relieve himself without it 'leaking' out anymore.

The King of pop, Michael Jackson, has converted to Islam and changed his name to Mikaeel. Apparently he just loooooves the womens veils.

As we round the curb and pull up to exit the cab, I look up, and there is your name. And I said, oh, my, Ted’s got an airport. That’s neat.” – The toe-tapping Sen. Larry Craig, missing the joke.

The delusions of the Roswell/SENM right wing free-marketeers continues to increase. "Flyover Tommy" Krumland, CEO of Krumland Motors, was mentioned in a Roswell Daily Record article of 12/04/08 that he was frustrated about the way people take messages from the MSM about the economy. He was quoted: "Here in Roswell, we are in a unique environment", "For the everyday person in Roswell, it doesn't affect them. I say we turn off those negative TV ads." He mentioned the new housing growth and the dairy and cheese industries are reasons for this appraisal. Krumland, one of the local leaders in junk mail, said that with rebates and lower gas prices that it is time to make an "investment" in a car. Investment? While cars are most often a necessity in our society, it is seldom considered a profitable investment. He also said the economy will bounce back because Americans have more faith than they did during the Great Depression. So according to this Hoover wannabe people in the 1930s
never needed a New Deal they just needed more "faith", and we don't need a "new" New Deal now because we have more of this "faith". Bottom line: Nevermind reality as long as you have a crackpot right wing ideology to believe in and have more money than most of the rest.

The same issue of the RDR had an article about how "for the everyday person in Roswell, it doesn't affect them." The Poe Corn Basketball Tournament, which has been around for about 50 years, is in danger of being cancelled this year because of the economy according to its sponsor the Sunrise Optimist Club. Travel and lodging for the visiting teams have been paid for in the past. But if additional local money is not found soon or unless the visiting teams can pay some of their expenses the tournament may be cancelled this year. Local businesses usually get some boost from the shopping and dining done by the visiting teams and their supporters.

Larry, It's rather odd how such, sometimes intentionally, blinded people can become community voices and leaders while realism flounders. Sounds like Tommy is escaping the down turn. Lots of people buying your cars Tom? Or are you just praying they will.
