Where the hell is Jesse Jackson Jr.?

Today, for certain, I don’t feel particularly inspired. I guess that finally catches up with my not possessing s**tloads of inspiration. It’s hard to be inspiring.

Here are some interesting tidbits I found today: (Merriam-Webster Online says tidbit comes from “tit” as in titmouse + bit.”) Hmmm. Just love ’em some titbits, even better than tater tits. Try ’em!

Where’s Junior Jackson?

U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., D-Illinois, is on medical leave from Congress but his folks are not saying what is wrong with him. That’s kind of odd. Immediately it would make one wonder if Jackson, son of the famous civil rights leader, has some serious social disease or AIDS or treatment for drug addiction or is having a head transplant. Sorry you are sick Junior but people can handle most anything unless you were brought into an ER with an animal as an appendage.

Get well congressman and please bring a written excuse.

Snobs? No snobs here. Move along, please.

Republican presidential candidate-almost-Mitt Romney was campaigning in Colorado with the event produced by a “Snob Productions.” This titbit from a story I read in The Pueblo Chieftan.

 “The Daily Sentinel in Grand Junction (http://goo.gl/Zude2) reports that the company masked its trucks and dressed employees in shirts that didn’t bear the company logo. Company owner David Wall says he’s never had such a request.”

Well, at least Mitt didn’t put one of the production people into a kennel and strap it on top of his car.

Yes we get it!

The U.S. House voted to repeal the Obama health care law — for the 33rd time.

Republicans know there is a snowball’s chance in Death Valley that their action will pass the Senate. Obama certainly won’t sign it.

I would think a time comes when one is long past symbolism and the circumstance turns into — especially with this case — official abuse. What have these dunderheads in Congress done since they took control of the House? They’ve screwed the American taxpayer, I’ll give them that. I have news for you. Congress, the House of Representative and the Senate, do not operate for free. If these fools are in the House, they should do something worthwhile. Thirty-three freaking times? House Republican leadership should all be booted out. They are robbing the citizenry blind. Malfeasance with a capital MAL, that rhymes with Pal and that stands for Pool. Read the Constitution.

 “Each House may determine the rules of its proceedings, punish its members for disorderly behavior, and, with the concurrence of two thirds, expel a member. — Article I, Section V, U.S. Constitution

Trouser Talk

Finally, from Alexis Madrigal, senior editor at The Atlantic: An answer to that burning question, why do we wear pants? It turns out the reason is horses.

Seriously, I’ve never really thought about it. Except for Porky Pig. I always wondered why he wore a coat and bowtie with no pair of pants? It turns out the reason is horses. No, I just made that up.


Ride ’em cowboy!
