MAYBE I'M AMAZED
Maybe I’m Amazed……that the GOP in Congress took so short a time to show their hands and true colors. Stopping unemployment benefits right before Christmas is so much in the spirit of this current Republican party who are hellbent on eliminating the middle class. They won’t be happy until they change the name of this country to the “United States of Potterville”. (Note to vapid Young Republicans with no clue as to pop culture or history and who think history began on the day they were born: “See “A Wonderful Life”.
Maybe I’m Amazed……….that Jessica Simpson has found another unemployed loser to marry. No pre nup, and she even bought the ring for herself. Why can’t me I have met women like that when I was on unemployment.
Maybe I’m Amazed…..that I heard a college student (male) commenting on the alcoholic energy drink “Four Loko”. Was he talking about the ban of it in some states? Was he warning other teens not to drink it? No, he was telling the interviewer that he was going to the store to buy four pallets of it so he can have it in stock just in case it gets banned. That supply should last until New Year’s Eve.
Maybe I’m Amazed….that after another big layoff at my old Alma Mater Blue Cross this week, they are still advertising heavily on TV and Radio and doing phone blitzes to member’s homes (Mrs. LuLac just got a call) inquiring about her wellness. Now when I got laid off from Blue Cross, they were very empathetic and helpful. Classiest place I ever got booted from. But hearing that commercial on the radio as you are driving to a job interview can’t sit well with the newly minted bunch of workers “right sized” from “Cross”. And by the way, Mrs. LuLac hung up in the middle of the automated message. Jeez shouldn't’ have said that, they’ll raise her premium. And when they do, the Republicans will blame it on Obama!
Maybe I’m Amazed….that the average turtle can’t reproduce until they are 25 years of age. Yeah, teen pregnancy is God’s big joke on all of us. Or maybe bad parenting.
Maybe I'm Amazed......that over 3 billion cups of tea are consumed every dai in the world.
