Monday Musings With The Crew

  • The older I get, the stronger my Libertarian leanings become.  To that end, I have grown increasingly more appreciative of John Stossel of the Fox News Channel.  The former ABC personality in a recent interview with the Heritage Foundation said he left ABC because "it sucked there".  Check out the video....

  • The Secret Service had a fun week in Colombia at the Summit of the Americas. At least 11 members of Dear Leader's Secret Service detail are being investigated for utilizing the services of some local prostitutes during their stay at the Hotel Caribe in Cartagena.  The scandal broke when one of the prostitutes refused to leave an agent's room because she hadn't been paid.  Look at the bright side, at least we know the American taxpayer is not the only one getting the shaft from the Obama administration.
  • Look, I am not saying that high schools are becoming bloated governmental institutions out of touch with their students, but then this story from England caught my eye.  On March 16, Megan Gillan's parents received a letter from their daughter's school.  The letter expressed concern about Megan's poor attendance, and cautioned the Gillans that Megan would not be able to attend her prom if her attendance didn't improve.  Megan Gillan died on January 19.  Read more at the Manchester Evening News.
  • More interesting tidbits from across the pond.....The UK National Army Museum recently held a vote to determine Britain's greatest ever military opponent.  The five finalists included Napoleon Bonaparte, Erwin Rommel, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, Michael Collins, and the winner George Washington.  Hmmm, remember George didn't even make Dear Leader's top 4 US presidents.  
  • Lady Gaga got a little grief last week for allegedly promoting unhealthy eating habits and body image to her 23 million Twitter followers.  Patrick Wanis, an expert in human behavior, was quoted as saying "....her tweets reveal that she is possible insincere and will simply do anything to get attention".  Please Patrick, tell me it isn't so.  I have seen no evidence that Lady Gaga has any interest in getting attention......
