happy money days

At my health club the TV in the locker room is usually tuned to one of those "morning" shows and no one really watches. Today I heard a commercial on whatever show it was that caused me to stop and ponder.

It was an ad for a big discount store; which shall remain nameless. The ad ended with a statement along the lines of - you'll save so much money - you can give more xmas.....

It left my brain in a muddle. Have we really packaged xmas so much that it can be quantified and "given" to someone? Do we now need persons like billo measuring how much xmas each store sells and then lambasting those who have less xmas to give as ones who are part of his war on xmas?

Raises lots of questions....but the answer to all is simple - you are expected to give lots of xmas this year - even if you go broke doing so! The "stores" have made this their December mantra!

It's been a weird week

For starters - this clip about rudy is funny and summarizes his week!

Then we have new allegations against Larry I am not and never was gay Craig.

The head of the Red Cross [A REPUG] lost his job for having an adulterous affair with a female co-worker - [that's probably why it wasn't big news...]

Virginia is making those who wish to vote in the repug primary sign an oath that will vote repug in the general election.

Iraq is wallowing in corruption.

The shrub is cutting back funding for first responders and ports - but probably not the college football stadiums and mid west who-knows-what that get such money.

Next he'll start scaring us again with terra threats - cuz his hallyburton cronies need the money - not the citizens!
