Hillary's Kennedy quote NOT as bad as Limbaugh Show Speculation on McCains Death


There has been much talk about the remark Hillary Clinton made concerning the whys of her staying in the race when nearly mathematically eliminated. What she said about Robert Kennedy’s assassination in 1968 would be unforgivable if she meant the worst that her statement conjures up…but it is also clear to everyone including the Kennedy family and Obama that she only misspoke and did not mean to say that she was in it because Obama might be killed. NOW if she HAD said that, she would deserve whatever the fate of t hose who would judge her because it is a terrible thing to think about, much less say. However, just being honest, I wonder how many people really do believe that Obama is in danger, as any candidate probably is from kooks, but Obama probably more so, one would think, because of racist beliefs by the lowest element. While Clinton, as a candidate, should never have uttered the comment , the discussion is nonetheless there at water coolers around the nation … Obama has acknowledged the presumed danger to him in a Brian Williams interview, and denying the reality of the vigilance that will be needed by his security.

Now…I say all that to say all this. While the comment I am writing about next did not come from a candidate, it DID come on the benchmark national conservative talk radio program ..the Rush Limbaugh Show. In the past week, Limbaugh had a fill in, someone I did not know, who said this, and I will not be able to directly quote, but I will come close. He said that the ultra conservative republicans who hate the McCain candidacy should be rejoicing because they would soon be getting the ultra conservative president they desired. He said that McCain would not live out his first term, and to get elected, he would HAVE to pick a conservative VP to fortify the republican base, and that given McCain would likely die in his first term, the conservative republicans should be happy that by electing McCain, they would ultimately get their wish. ON RUSH LIMBAUGH’S SHOW! While this was not a direct quote, I got the gist of it right here, and he closed by saying something like “you people are going to get what you want..this might not be so bad afterall.” I have got to believe that I am not the only one outraged by someone seemingly rooting for McCains death , albeit after election. I have got to believe even McCains people are mad about this.
as I post this…I request that if someone knows who the Limbaugh guest host was, let me know. AND if you are asking the question ? “why do you listen to that crap,” I tell you what I tell my wife….when ESPN starts talking about NBA, I drift to another station quickly.

The Walmart Chronicles - Episode 1 - McDonalds Salads or Soup ?

THE WAL*MART CHRONICLES

This happened, swear to goodness, at the McDonalds located in my hometown Walmart.

A woman came up to the register while I was waiting in line, and addressed the cashier.
"Mam, you gave me a a spoon with my salad."
"yes mam," matter of factly she replied, "we are out of forks."
"out of forks ?" said the astonished customer.
"yes ..we out of forks."
"I am not sure I would have ordered a salad if I knew you were out of forks," she stated with amazement, looking at me and saying , " am I being ridicilous ?"
"not at all," exclaimed the Wal*Mart Chrnoicler
"Well ..we are out of forks ..." and went about her business...
The manager got involved.
The woman said, "are you sure you don't have any in the back ?"
Manager: "do we have any in the back???? (looking back there somewhere)...no..we just don't have any ...we hope to have some soon."

OK>>>WE ARE IN A WALMART>>>THEY HAVE FORKS SOMEWHERE DONT THEY ??????

What Bruce Springsteen Says at the start of Livin In The Future is the way I (think) I feel about America

Bruce Springsteen
Introduction to "Livin In The Future"
Charlottesville Virginia April 30, 2008

"this is a song called ´Livin´ In The Future´ but it´s about what´s happening now....along with all the things that we love about America - cheeseburgers, French fries, the Constitution (crowd cheers) Clarence ´Big Man´ Clemons (crowd cheers) ....along with all the things that we love about the place we live, in the last seven years we´ve had to add to the American picture things like illegal wiretapping....an attack on our Constitution, a rollback of civil liberties, rendition....those are the things that ain´t supposed to be happening here that are happening here now....so we plan to do something about it right now....we´re gonna sing about it....as loud as we can.....´´

Of Bruce Springsteen, Big Oil, Exxon, and Climate Change

WHEN BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN SINGS COMON UP FOR THE RISIN..HE WASNT TALKING ABOPT FOD PRICES. HOW COULD THINGS BE SPIRALING THIS MUCH OUT OF CONTROL TIS FAST ? WHO IS TO BLAME ? WHO WASNT LISTENED TO ...YOU KNOW? i WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHO SAID SEVERAL YEARS AGO ...DONT USE CORN FOR ENERGY OR YOULL CREATE MORE PROBLEMS THAN IS WORTH. WHO SAID DONT INVADE AND CONQUER AN OIL RICH COUNTRY, OR YOU MAY FIND THE PRICE OF GAS TRIPLED WITHIN 5 YEARS.

SOMOENE MUST HAVE BEEN OUT THERE SAYING IT ?
WHEN GAS GOES TO 5 UCKS A GALLON, NOBODY GETS BOOODY, NOBODY LOSES A LIMB, NOBODY DIES IN COMBAT ...HOWEVER, ITS HARD NOT TO REALIZE THAT ITS LIKE A BOMB GOING OFF IN MY BACK YARD. GAS ESCELATES, FOOD ESCELATES, QUALITY OF LIFE DIMINISHES, AND GENERALLY, LIFE IS MUCH MORE UNPLEASANT FOR THOSE WITH MEAGER MEANS, AND FOR SOME, LIFE DOES INDEED BECOME A NIGHTMARE OF CHECKING ACCOUNT OVERDRAFTS, LATE PAYMENTS ON CARDS OR UTILITY BILLS, AND A NEW CONSTANT WEIGHING OF NEEDS VERSUS WANTS.
IM TROUBLED THAT BIG OIL IS GETTING RICH, BUT ALSO REALIZE THAT ITS NOT REALLY THEIR JOB TO LOWER THEIR PROFIT POTENTIAL JUST BECAUSE WE ARE SUFFERING. FOR PROFIT VENTURES ARE ALMOST NEVER BALANCED AGAINST THE NEED FOR COMMON GOOD. BUT UNDERSTAND THAT IN THIS ECONOMY, ITS NOT JUST BIG OIL GETTING RICHER. ANYONE WITH COMFORTABLE MEANS RIGHT NOW IS ONLY SUFFERING FROM ONE MALADY...THAT THE INTEREST RATE CUTS AWAY AT THE WEALTHYS INTEREST BOUNTY....,BUT BUT BUT...THOSE WITH MEANS HAVE PURCHASING POWER LIKE NEVER BEFORE AND CAN GOBBLE UP REAL ESTATE , CARS, AND ANYTHING YOU CAN THINK OF THAT IS VALUABLE AT BARGAIN BASEMENT PRICES BECAUSE ONLY THE RICH CAN AFFORD THESE THINGS NOW. INDEED, LIKE NEVER BEFORE IN MY LIFE, THE RICH ARE GETTING RICHER IF THEY WANT ...AND ALL THIS COMES AMIDST THE MORAL DILEMMA OF ABSOLUTELY NEEDING TO DO SOMETHING, ANYTHING, ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE.
