On the Road again.....

The Global Outrage of an Educated Man.........vol.73
Lipstick on a pig. How about that? Lipstick on a pig is today's catchphrase. I was at the State Fair this year and I didn't notice any booth that was offering that kind of deal. I was too heavily focused on finding the freak show down in the Midway or was I sipping on my nice tall glass of Stella Artois at the time? I forget. Where is that booth? It may have been out by the Minneapolis International Airport and nearby Sen. Larry Craig's favorite bathroom stall. Can't you just hear the foot tapping? To the beat of a different drummer. No pun intended. Seriously, no offense. Getting off track once again. My apologies. This kind of stuff comes around once in a lifetime. Maybe the mud of the pigs' is America, and listen how we squeal.
Thanks a lot for those economic stimulus checks. Oh, what's this now? You want them back to bailout companies that are "too big to fail". It's nice to know that average citizen doesn't have a safety net as neat and tidy as the Federal Government does for Wall Street big businesses. I know that if the federal government didn't step up to the plate and beg for more money to stave off another Depression we would all be going for each other's throats and looting and burning whatever cash we do have on hand, because we'd realize once and for all that not only is our country morally bankrupt but financially as well. How else can anyone explain "Hole in the Wall?'". 700 Billion dollars on top of the 10 billion that we are spending every month in Iraq. Who would want to be President of the United States? Look what they are going to inherit. Ouch. But at least the President has been telling us that our Economy has been "fundamentally sound." Whew, that is a relief. I almost thought we may be in trouble here. I mean how much is our dollar really worth when all we do is print more and send more out into the marketplace when we know in our heart of hearts that we are never going to pay off our national debt. Never. Then again, if the world is going to end or whatever changes might occur by December 22, 2012, this is kind of leading us down that thorny path. Can't you just smell the roses? You know what you need for nice flowers to grow? Bull. Yep, you guessed it. Have a great weekend everyone and enjoy the filth.
