I just had to put this up earlier than usual today. Paul Harvey's show was on while I was in the car today and this is what I heard:
President Obama has named a 4 man panel plus 4 assistants to work on the crisis in the automobile industry. Out of those 8 people, 2 own American vehicles. One, a 6 year old Lincoln and the other, an 18 year old Harley Davidson.
Now, as my sainted late father-in-law used to say: "Wouldn't that just frost ya?"
I may be back if there is even one new thing to be heard from Obama this evening. If not, see you tomorrow.
PS-Just checked out Nick at RightMichigan and now it'll bug me until I find out what an Autobot or a Decepticon is. And given the speed at which new words find their way into our speech I can't even afford to buy a new dictionary which is out of date almost as soon as a new car driven off the showroom floor. The words in question are not in my unabridged or either of my abridged editions. Help!
Okay- The Speech is over and it was another campaign speech. It reminds me of a cartoon/joke I rec'd a few days ago. Obama is making a different promise in each frame: free education!! free healthcare!! free energy!! free retirement plans!! free transportation!! After each of these freebies the crowd below yells "Yea!!!"
And the last frame is "And a job for everyone!!" And the crowd yells "Jobs???"
My biggest leap of faith had to come at the end when he said everyone wants America to be the best country in the world and my subconscious started listing the celebrity types and left wingers who I wonder what they really want..............
The Strykers and Soros of the world will always stay the same, but I wonder what they would have the rest of us do--for them.
