DC Earthquake

Posted by madjillmom on August 23, 2011

Thank God that Pres. Obama and his family were far away from DC today.  It would have wreaked havoc on his putting game as he was playing golf at the time.

Now, this a pretty serious event.  Felt as far away as NYC and that area, causing building evacuations, Pentagon evacuation, and damage around DC.

Possible Causes:

Lack of movement on Patent Reform

Corporate Jet Tax Breaks

Tea Party Anger

Republican intransigence

George Bush

Gosh, if I had only been able to patent the Earthquake Prevention device I have been working on in my garage, the economy and DC would be much better off.

Greek Tourism

Posted by madjillmom on June 29, 2011

The Greek population seems to be in denial.  They demonstrate/riot because they still want their cushy lives on the government dole.  If I had to guess what the biggest industry was in Greece, I would guess that it is tourism.  I wonder what these scenes do for that industry?

Back Alley Circumcision

Posted by madjillmom on June 5, 2011

If the loons have their way, there may soon be “back alley circumcisions” in San Francisco.  Probably using rusty steak knives.  Everything goes in San Fran though I guess freedom of religion is not one of those things.  There has been some evidence in the past few years in Africa that circumcision helps in prevention of the spread AIDS.   No big deal in San Francisco.

Has the Government Shut Down Already?

Posted by madjillmom on April 6, 2011

I have tried to communicate with my Senators Cornyn and Hutchison today through e-mail access on their sites.  Every time I try to access their websites, I get nothing, nada, zip.  I have also tried to visit and get nothing but a white screen.  What’s the deal?  Have they shut down already?

I guess the old people are starving and the kids are starving and the parks are closed and the social security checks aren’t going out….    OMG will we survive?

Confusion about News

Posted by madjillmom on February 26, 2011

For the last few days, I have caught bits and pieces of reports on the news.  Sometimes I am confused about who they are talking about.  Sometimes I think they are talking about Dictator Muammar el-Qhadafi, but I then find out they are talking about Charlie Sheen.  Delusion reigns.  I realize that they are in no way comparable, but the reports could be interchangeable.

“The Godfather” and the Male Mind

Posted by madjillmom on February 13, 2011

“The Godfather” has always appeared on lists of best movies ever.  For whatever reason, I have never seen it until last night.  I just didn’t really get it.  I had to look up a synopsis of the story to put a few things together.  I still have a lot of questions about who did what and why.  Evidently, the who, what, and why are better understood by the male mind.  I guess they are the superior sex when it comes to crime and science fiction.

OMG Snow in New England!

Posted by madjillmom on January 27, 2011

The downside of having 24 hour cable news is apparent when snow in New England in January is the biggest story on said stations.  This phenomenon is not that noteworthy.  It is the abnormal that should be noteworthy.

The only take on it should be how NYC is now able to remove the snow when they seemed not to be able to around Christmas.  The bad press on the union that takes care of that now means the union has to do their jobs for real or catch a lot of flack.  Unions should be on notice that they can’t get away with the stuff they usually do.  Too bad it took some deaths to get to this place.

Odd Mail for Me

Posted by madjillmom on October 18, 2010

Today, I found two odd things in my mailbox.  The first was a Rolling Stone magazine with my name and address on it.  The next was an American Girl catalog with my name and address.  The databases are corrupted.  Abandon all hope!  Oh, wait, abandon all hope and change.

Strange Dog Behavior

Posted by madjillmom on October 9, 2010

One of our dogs, a dachshund named Belle, regularly eats her food and then comes to our bathroom and yelps.  After I open the shower door, she proceeds to lick the shower door track and a bit of the shower floor.  It isn’t for water, she has water.  I have always thought it must be some mineral or salt that she wants to clean her palate.  I guess weird people have weird dogs and at least one weird cat.

The World is in the Very Best of Hands

Posted by madjillmom on September 28, 2010

The United Nations has appointed an official point person to greet any incoming aliens.

The Democrats are inviting Stephen Colbert to pontificate on migrant farm workers.

Priorities are really an issue here and in the world.
