Mitt not running again…

leave a comment »

It’s official:  Mitt Romney  will not seek  the republican presidential nomination  in 2016.   I’d vote for him in a heartbeat,  but apparently American voters demand pizzazz instead of   economic sense  and decency. After all,  they elected a man who possesses neither,  then re-elected him.   They deserved Barack Obama,  but the rest of us don’t.

Unwanted dead…

No one is claiming  the bodies  of all the foreign ISIS fighters piling up in Iraqi hospitals.   Imagine that!

I hope the report that the Iraqis are refusing to bury them in their cemeteries is true.   My recommendation is some large bonfires accompanied by celebration.

White Castle blowout…

leave a comment »

White Castle opened its first Nevada restaurant in Las Vegas,  and it proved a heck of a  good bet,  as it sold 4,000 sliders an hour,  then had to close  temporarily for maintenance.

Yeah, they are wonderfully tasty,  and Americans are tired of Our Lady of Perpetual Dissatisfaction hectoring us to eat leaves and twigs.

CBC chair threatens…

leave a comment »

If this were playing out on camera,  I’d make popcorn,  settle into a chair,  and enjoy the show.   Unfortunately,  we are unlikely to get a live show,  just pages of ink,  as the chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus is subtly threatening  to charge  other Democrats with racism.

The problem is that some junior Dems are pushing for time limits on committee memberships.   Senior Dems are not about to step aside,  and certainly no one in the CBC is about to surrender a ranking member position.    There are now fewer Democrats in the House than at any time since World War II,  and you will see elbows sharpened to rapier points against any white Democrats who try to horn in on what the CBC considers to be its rightful turf.

It will be interesting to see the lengths the CBC will go to in order to exclude its new member,  Republican Mia Love,  who is as unwelcome there as Col. Allen West was.

What some women want…

A dozen  women told  the Independent Women’s Forum what they want in 2015.   I found them all to be excellent choices.   You?
