Okay, the debt ceiling has been lifted and the government is open again. Time to celebrate? It's a temporary fix. How is it different than the last time? How will it be different in a few months?
Ted Cruz? Seriously? I believe he is a Disney animatron escaped from Orlando. Michele Bachmann? Prove to me that she is not one of the original Stepford wives.
Affordable health care?? When I was poor and struggling, I didn't have health insurance. Why should I pay taxes for someone else to have it now? Progress? That's a part of progressive...so it surely must be bad. (Sheldon: "Sarcasm?")
Facebook has opened itself to public sharing by teens...so they can have a voice in the causes important to them. I do hope Malala Yousafzai has an account.
And speaking of teens, a Massachusetts school stripped a girl of her position as a sports team captain because she went to pick up a friend who had been drinking and needed a ride home. Let no good deed go unpunished.
I do appreciate people offering their condolences, but I don't understand why some have to say things like, "I know you are a good Christian, so..." Well as it happens, no, I am not a Christian. I am a good and spiritual person, but why does anyone have to speculate on my religion? And get it wrong? That just strikes me as slightly rude. Even so, I do not turn away anyone's prayers or positive vibrations.
The definition of compromise is to settle a dispute through mutual concessions.
"If you refuse to do it my way, you are not compromising," does not quite cut it. On either side. Just saying.
Comforting to know that a plane can still fly with only one functioning engine. There is always a news story in the week before I have to fly somewhere.
Smart guns on the news tonight. I predicted that.
Maybe I am the wacky one and the rest of the world is all okay.
