MAYBE I'M AMAZEDMAYBE I’M AMAZED……..that when news comes out about the Hit and Run deaths, the accused always admits it privately to either a friend, family member or another confidante. This might sound simplistic, but if they admit, or present hypotheticals, they were involved somehow.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……….that CEOs in big companies have to step up next and Deal with the President as well as the House and Senate in putting together a viable, fair plan to cut spending in Washington. The fact that the GOP got no spending cuts in this “deal” was a major loss for them and frankly the future of the economy. Spending can be cut but it has to be humane.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……….that when people make New Year’s Resolutions and gym memberships explode, Burger King and McDonald’s launch their Buy One, Get One Free circulars in the local newspapers.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……………not really, at the warm reception former First Lady of Pennsylvania Ellen Casey at the mock swearing in ceremonies at the Capitol Wednesday by Vice President Biden. Biden was taking photos with Senators and family members and Biden make a big fuss over the Casey family when the newly re-elected Senator was sworn in. Referencing his own late mother, Biden told Mrs. Casey, “Next to my mom, you’re the mom I love most”. Biden also joked that the reason why he moved out of Scranton’s Greenridge section was because he knew he couldn’t compete with the Caseys three doors down.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED………that the “News Stations”, WBRE and WNEP, those with the big sets never made the trip down to Washington to cover the swearing in ceremony of three area Congressmen from their coverage area. It was Hazleton’s WYLN that made the trip and did comprehensive reports on the swearing in of Congressmen Marino, (the 10th), Barletta (the 11th) and Cartwright (the 17th).
MAYBE I’M AMAZED………that when we are thinking about cuts to our deficit, we refuse to cut military support to Europe. Why are we still spending billions there? Hitler and Stalin are more than a distant memory.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……….but not really, the fact that Matt Cartwright was elected President of the Freshman Class of the 113th Congress. Cartwright must have made an impression when the group was in its training and indoctrination period. With Cartwright, you’ll see more of this to come.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……a dog’s body temperature is 101 degrees.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…….that Congressman Barney Frank volunteered to serve the state of Massachusetts as an interim Senator until March. When John Kerry is confirmed as Secretary of State, that seat becomes open until a special election. If only for a few months., Frank would be a fierce advocate for the Obama/Biden agenda in the upcoming fiscal fights.

MAYBE I’ M AMAZED……. that convicted, former Louisiana Governor Edwin Edwards is doing a reality show with his wife called “The Governor’s Wife”. Edwards is 85, his wife is 34. So that means when Edwards was 50, she wasn’t even on this earth. A fifty one year spread. Can anyone say “Anna Nicole?”
