Wednesday, June 1, 2016 – June is Busting Out All Over – 161 Days

Wednesday, June 1, 2016 – June is Busting Out All Over – 161 Days

I was looking for something to think about today and found nothing of interest. I will play word association with myself.


Donald Trump – Bombastic – even the PGA is leaving your Florida golf course and taking a tournament to Mexico City.

Hillary Clinton – I will email her later.

Bernie Sanders – The Supremes – You Just Keep Me Hanging On

ESPN/CBS/SEC Football Broadcasts – House Cleaning – Good Bye Vern Lunquist. Good Bye Chris Berman. Please take Brent Mushburger with you. See if Jesse Palmer can ride with you.

NCAA Women’s College World Series – there are some very large girls who play softball. If you have any eligibility left I am sure a Division III football team would be interested in your talents.

Baylor – WOW. How sad. And now Ken Starr. Who would have ever seen his demise due to a sex scandal? Talk about Karma. One of my mother’s favorite proverbs “Play in shit; gonna get shitty.”

New Favorite TV Show – Houdini and Doyle – Science vs. Spiritualism in London 1901 plus the suffragettes.

Texas – “Water, water, everywhere and oh the boards did shrink; water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink.”

Transgender – Give me strength. Who gets to do the in-service next fall for teachers on who gets to tinkle where? Does it coincide with their concealed handgun workshop?

Nothing of interest – same old same old except for the 161 days. There are 161 days until Election Day. Then what?

Wednesday, April 20, 2016 – Yes, We Will and Other Comments from Yesterday’s News

Wednesday, April 20, 2016 – Yes, We Will and Other Comments from Yesterday’s News

Here’s What I’m Thinking

Buddy Glasses

“Yes, We Will” is Ted Cruz’s new campaign slogan. Will What? That is the best your team could up with? Sounds a little like “Yes We Can.” In other Cruz quotes…

Cruz also made an unusual analogy to wrestling or yoga, depending on which mat you prefer.

“America has always been best when she is lying down with her back on the mat,” he said. http://www.salon.com/2016/04/20/america_has_always_been_best_when_she_is_lying_down_with_her_back_on_the_mat_what_was_ted_cruz_talking_about_last_night/

Where did your speech writers learn to write your lines? – From Best Little Whorehouse in Texas?

In Mr. Trump’s acceptance speech from New York, he said – we will get rid of Common Core and provide education locally. The exact quote “Local communities are going to take care of their education need.”

Just exactly how is that going to work? Especially if local communities do not want federal education funding? Are you planning for local communities to change their schools’ names to something more like “By God (mine, not yours) Independent School Districts and Local Communities?”

And Hillary and Bernie – Kiss and make up. Bernie, I am certain you will get a nice spot somewhere in her administration. However, watch out for one of those Castro twins from Texas to be the Veep.

Regardless of the candidates, their metaphors, similes, analogies, quotes and ideas create images in my brain that are not pretty. What are those Caribbean Island coordinates? I think I can think more clearly there.

Monday, February 1, 2016 – A Connie Francis Playlist for the Iowa Caucus

Monday, February 1, 2016 – A Connie Francis Playlist for the Iowa Caucus

Connie Francis was a top chart singer of the 1950’s and early 1960’s. She is still popular in Los Vegas and still has a wonderful voice that ranges opera to her pop hits.

Do not tell me that if you were female growing up during this time period that you did not sing along into your hair brush in front of the mirror in your room to the Connie Francis’ records on your stereo or on the radio. You know you did.


I bet you did not know that Connie Francis invented spring break. It was the movie Where the Boys Are in 1961 that showed college students going to the beach to frolic in the sun. Not to be confused with the other actress in the movie Delores Hart who went into a nunnery and is a now Mother Superior. I am not certain if there is correlation to Spring Break and going into a nunnery on not.

Back to the playlist.  Here’s What I’m Thinking – These songs would make a good Iowa Caucus Playlist with songs from Connie Francis.

For Hillary Clinton I have selected – Where the boys someone waits for me!!!

If the word cupidity means an eager or excessive desire, especially to possess something, greed; avarice then for

Donald Trump and his supporters I selected:

“Stupid Cupid”

Stupid Cupid you’re a real mean guy I’d like to clip your wings so you can’t fly I’m in love and it’s a crying shame And I know that you’re the one to blame Hey hey, set me free Stupid Cupid stop picking on me

For Bernie Sanders I selected My Happiness – … Evening shadows make me blue… A million years it seems, that have gone by since we shared a dream…

I selected for Ted Cruz – Everybody’s Somebody’s Fool.

And for all of us – Who’s Sorry Now?
