Sometimes retail stores pick an unfortunate style of type face for their signs. This is a good example of one. A lot of horny guys will be disappointed when they find out that the store only rents movies. Where is “Times New Roman” when we need him?
The twelve year old kid who recently lost on “Jeopardy!” because of a spelling error received a valuable lesson in real life. Although many schools and texting habits today aren’t particular about correct spelling, young Thomas Hurley III found out that “Jeopardy!” does care about it. The Final Jeopardy! question was “What is the Emancipation Proclamation?” Thomas got it correct except he misspelled “Emancipation” which made him incorrect. Afterwards, he claimed he was cheated saying: “It was only a spelling error.” Only a spelling error? Maybe spelling is more important in life than the kid thought: at least on "Jeopardy!"
I love to turn on the computer in the morning and see where Obama’s poll numbers continue to drop. This morning (August 10) Real Clear has him at 51.0 disapproval and 43.6 approval; a variance of -7.4%. Gallup shows him at 50 disapproval and 41 approval, a variance of -9. Polls aren’t everything but those numbers at least make the coffee taste a little better in the morning.
Have you heard the latest liberal nonsense from the city of Seattle? Fox News reports that “Government workers in the city of Seattle have been advised that the terms "citizen" and "brown bag" are potentially offensive and may no longer be used in official documents and discussions.”
OK, if they want to drop “citizen” for “residents” they can go ahead since they probably have many residents who aren’t citizens living in that liberal haven. However, the city government leaders are either too young or too stupid to understand the term “brown bag.” They claim "brown bag" has been used historically as a way to judge skin color. Not so! It has strictly been a term for someone taking their lunch somewhere in a brown Kraft paper bag. Example: “Are you eating at McDonald’s today?” “No, I’m not. I’m broke so I have to brown bag it today.” It’s an innocent term that like so many others in our thin skinned liberal world is being mistaken for something that doesn’t exist.
Great letter to the Republic from this past week: In response to another bleeding heart story about the so called Mexican “dreamers,” a guy from Glendale replied, “My dream is that people don’t keep expecting me to pay for their dreams. While I have plenty of dreams, I work hard and make intelligent life decisions to achieve them rather than expect someone else to pay for them. It’s the American way; work hard for what you want and don’t expect that society owes you anything.” Amen!
