Dixie Chicks and other random offerings

Kudos to Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks for taking back her apology concerning her remarks about George W. Bush. The man really does not deserve any respect.
Also, thanks to Marilyn Vos Savant for echoing my opinion for many, many years that there is no difference between Dems and Reps. All one needs to do is look up their voting records. ( Does anyone remember that Reagan was a life-long Dem before California?)
Believe me, I used to chair a third party in Tarrant County and the first thing I learned was that those two major parties will snuggle to the death when another throws their hat into the ring.
On a lighter note, last night’s basketball game between the Spurs and the Mavericks was nothing short of phenomenal. I really am not much of a sports guy, but hey, I grew up in Fort Worth, which pretty much borders Dallas, so it’s hard not to be a little enthusiastic.
Pro athletes may be spoiled and overpaid, but at least nothing politically or religiously or worldly-threatening happens in a big game. Hooray for the Mavs!
Will have to watch some of the next series while in Mexico. Oh, Mexico.
Hopefully, we will be able to catch a bullfight or two. Not a sport, yet a brilliant art. Bliss.
Just thinking out loud.

a shit-faced Bush

The day begins. Candles are lighted and incense is burning. Cold beer at my side. I was just glancing at an old newspaper and had to laugh, really laugh out loud. Who gives a f…k in what language the national anthem is sung? The only person with a right to object would be Francis Scott Key.
Now, the funny part comes when George W. Bush said that anyone moving to this country should learn English. Okay. Let’s start with George W. Bush. That man cannot construct an English sentence for shit! The next time he pronounces the word nuclear as “nucular”, some English tutor should walk upon the White House lawn and take a public shit. Then, maybe Bush’s nose could be rubbed in it each time he shits on the language he preaches everyone should learn.
Sorry for the profanity, it’s just that kind of morning. Shit!
