VIRGINIA BEACH (August 10, 2010) - - Just pondering: Who's yo daddy? Did Obama's daddy (a part time sex toy for his white mama for a short while) really serve in World War II as the president claimed? Is oral sex cheaper than a haircut? Can a Christian-educated at religious entertainer Pat Robertson's Regent University be the largest booze seller in the state? Can government really run a railroad?
Those are just some questions people ask. They come from the Internet, the barber and the news media. Some of them stick around for a few hours each day, some longer, but not all for real long.
President Obama, in talking about veteran services and need to support them, told the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials on June 28, 2008 that his father served in World War II and when he came home he got the veteran services he needed, including treatment for PSTD. (See YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fv4jnlkxOaw).
His father born in 1936 would have only been 5 years old when WW II started and less than 10 years old when it ended. Obama lied? Or simply 'mis-spoke?'
Most of us believe he probably lied. Snopes, an Obama apologist organization, chalks it up to he mis-spoke. You can listen to the his speech on YouTube
and make up your own mind.
Oral sex cheaper than a haircut? My barber said it was!
I went the cheap route and decided to try a 'regular' barber shop instead of a fancy-smancy stylist I usually went to, a couple months back. Hadn't been in such a place since I was a child when it was 2-bits for a shave and a haircut (and I was too young for the shave).
There was foreign female barber, possibly Filipino, open and I was her next victim. Being noted for big mouth and no forethought, I flippantly quipped, "Hair cut $5?"
Without missing a beat, she said, "Oral Sex, $5. Haircut $15." "Lets proceed with the haircut," I replied.
Big Mac, our GOP governor, who once had a problem of trying to determine if he had ever experienced oral sex, came out of Regent University - a devout Christian lawyer.
Like down in the Bible belt where the Southern Baptists were in a conspiracy with bootleggers and 'shine runners' that kept us good ole hillbillies 'dry,' it's hard to believe that Big Mac has to tour the state to dump its liquor industry.
Cretins fear it is going to cause liquor stores to be 'seeded' on every corner of every city, county, and town. Who cares? If they can't make money, they'll shut down on their own. For the rest us, it'll offer competitive prices.
And no! No government in the U.S. can run a railroad.
In Norfolk, the executive black director who was trying to build a 'light rail' monument to himself was so incompetent that he allowed the project to go over budget $108 MILLION in 1-year and get a year behind completion schedule because he was 'black' and everybody was afraid to challenge him.
They finally gave him a wealthy 'black' parachute to go away. It was cheaper than a prolonged discrimination court fight they were sure he'd launch against Hampton Roads Transit if they'd didn't buy him off.
So now, new management is swamped with trying to correct everything from engineering mistakes to personnel matters.
And Washington's Metro which has had numerous problems, has asked the National Transportation Board to tell it how it can prevent fatal accidents. I have an idea: Turn it over to private industry or park the trains.
Ain't it fun to ponder stuff?
