Back, in a manner of speaking.
Nasty reaction to medication doc gave me.
Heard news of killings at Ct. school on the radio late last night. Shocker. Just little kids. The killer had to be severely twisted mentally. How could his late mom have not seen something wrong there?
I won’t dwell on that subject except for one other related thing.
I heard Obama’s remarks as they were also broadcast here. He sounded quite emotional and there was a bit of dead airtime during his remark.
Very un-presidential I thought. I’m willing to believe he was genuine as after all, he is a father no matter what else we believe about the guy.
But choking up and sounding as if he’d cry at any moment was toe curling and cringe-worthy. Good grief. Like him or not he carries a title as head of state and is seen as a leader of the free world. Well, a leader of some kind anyway. You do not get all teary-eyed before going public. You compose yourself and go on only when ready. Or am I mistaken on that?
I liked Richard Nixon btw, and know during his last days in office some of his public remarks were emotional sounding.
Speaking of Nixon. I heard an interesting program last night and it was based on the interviews he’d done with Frost.
It was sort of a re-cap of life and career.
From beginning to end it was genuine hatchet job which made me love and admire Nixon even more than I already did. But golly sports fans, he had flaws. Oh woo. None of the rest of us have those. Sure thing. We’re all perfect and especially the media. Right. Always fair minded. Right?
They played a tape recording which was presented as proof of how racist and bigoted he was supposed to have been. Really. When you listen to it if open minded and even if not a fan, there was no racism there. Zip. He said Latins weren’t very good at governing, he used Italy and Spain as examples, and then said look at France. Look at their problems and they are somewhat latin. And yes, he mentioned Africa saying they were just not up to what it takes to govern and hold a country together. Was he wrong? He didn’t use the ‘N’ word either. But somehow he was presented as racist and bigoted. He said African states were childlike and always demanding something. Gimme-gimme. Or words to that effect.
BBC program had a field day with that.
With regard to shooting in Ct. It won’t surprise any of you to know the liberal minded here are all over those ignorant uncivilized and barbaric Americans and their love affair with guns.
Meanwhile back at the home ranch:
Gunman robs elderly homeowners before kidnapping wife in their own car
Man broke into couple’s home and demanded money with a gun
Woman was forced into her own car and driven around for 15 minutes
Police have urged robber to give himself up
By Harriet Cooke
The terrifying ordeal came after a man turned up at a house in Lymington, Hampshire, yesterday morning, and used a gun to demand money from the couple who live there.
The man - in his 70s - received a minor head injury during a confrontation with the suspect.
As you can see, with the very strict control they have here, and btw should you want to know, it is against the law to have and carry a weapon of that sort.
Apparently this fellow didn’t quite understand the law. Or maybe,,,, he didn’t care?
If you’ve a mind to, surf to the Daily Mail and read the comments posted by many here re. Americans and guns. I won’t go there. I don’t need any more anger and angst in my life at the moment.
On an all together different subject entirely. Were you aware that as much as 80 percent of us, speaking of Americans, believe goreball warming is a serious threat to the USA? Must be true cos it’s in the papers.
80 per cent of Americans think global warming is serious problem for U.S.
A recent poll found 4 out of every 5 Americans said climate change will be a serious problem for the United States if nothing is done about it
That’s up from 73 per cent when the same question was asked in 2009
Even most people who say they don’t trust scientists on the environment say temperatures are rising
More than half of Americans say the U.S. government should do a great deal or quite a bit about the problem
By Associated Press Reporter
A growing majority of Americans think global warming is occurring, that it will become a serious problem and that the U.S. government should do something about it, a new Associated Press-GfK poll finds.
Even most people who say they don’t trust scientists on the environment say temperatures are rising.
The poll found 4 out of every 5 Americans said climate change will be a serious problem for the United States if nothing is done about it.
That’s up from 73 per cent when the same question was asked in 2009.
That also comes from the Sunday Mail. I just thought you might like to know what it is you are thinking.
Look for measures inspired by euro-pee-ons to influence thinking in the US.
80% of Americans? That’s the biggest load of shite I’ve ever read, next to Obama’s book.
