Monday Musings With The Crew---Adios 2012

No dear readers, Sahib and I have not fallen over the fiscal cliff and taken our keyboards with us.  We've just been on a little holiday sabbatical, spending some time with friends and family.  Today, I'm sitting in my office watching the snow come down, and listening to clients calling in to cancel their appointments.  Ugh.  Anyway, on with the countdown.....

  • Frankly, I am sick and tired of hearing the phrase "fiscal cliff".  I have news for you.....we went over the fiscal cliff a LONG time ago.  To be precise, we did a full gainer off the cliff on October 3, 2008, when then President George W. Bush signed the TARP bill into law.  The only question now is do we limp away from the landing with our tax rates and national security intact, or do we auger into the ground and have Dear Leader drop an anvil on our head a la Wile E. Coyote.  Reminds me of the old Norm McDonald joke......"there's only two kinds of cliff divers, world champions......and stuff on a rock"   
  • As a young man growing up in Kansas, and then attending a land grant university (insert Silo Tech joke here), I am familiar with the old prank of "cow tipping".  What I didn't know is that the art has been perfected by our Russian comrades.....

  • In what is surely a more accurate sign of impending doom than any Mayan calendar, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are having a baby.  Obviously the child will grow up to be a well-adjusted member of society, and make great contributions to the furthering of the human condition. We can only hope the little whippersnapper is smart enough not to donate any money to his daddy's charities..
  • Pennsylvania police have charged Benjamin Klinger with a multitude of charges stemming from the death of his 17 year old girlfriend in a car crash.  Police allege that Klinger intentionally crashed the car the two were riding in (at over 100 mph), and then sat on his injured girlfriend until she died of suffocation.  Senator Diane Feinstein immediately reacted by adding "the sitting position" to her upcoming weapons ban bill.  
  • While we are on the topic of deadly about the story of Franziska Hansen?  The 33 year old German woman is accused of attempting to murder her boyfriend during sex by suffocating him with her 38 DD breasts.  The boyfriend, Tim Schmidt, was able to escape the murderous confines of Franziska's cleavage, and ran naked to a neighbor's home to call police.  Schmidt claims that Hansen later admitted to him her intent, saying "I wanted your death to be as pleasurable as possible". We should all be so fortunate.....In response to this story,  the state of Massachusetts has asked Barney Frank to register his bad boys as potential deadly weapons...

  • I don't know about you, but I am ready to kiss 2012 sayonara.  It was a crappy year for this country, for individual freedoms, personal responsibility, and most of the other things conservatives hold dear.  Chief Justice John Roberts lost his mind, the American electorate decided to vote for more handouts and less freedom, and the Kansas City Chiefs went 2-14.  Check please!
