Random Thoughts for March 2010


“Mayor Richard Daley says he’s optimistic Chicago will prevail against what he calls the gun industry’s challenge to the city’s handgun laws.”

How very good for him. Also, how very bad for anyone who doesn’t want to see a leveling of the playing field for innocents and the crooks that prey on them. But, gee Mayor, the times they are a changing and the Supreme Court has already ruled against you. What this latest court ruling will pertain to will be just where the burden of gun ownership shall lie. Currently, a person who desires gun ownership in the city of Chicago must prove to the city as to why he should have one. After the ruling next week, this burden may shift 180 degrees where it will now be necessary for the city to show why a person may not have a handgun. Good luck with that Mayor Daley.

Health Care Reform Passage Will Kill the Democrats in Both Houses

In what will be a truly historic case of mass self inflicted suicide, the Democratic Party is now facing a very ugly reality. Rumor has it that Obama is more than happy to be a one term president if he can get the Health Reform Bill rammed through congress this year. Unfortunately, this is not the case for career Democrats, some of who are facing re-election in a few months. These folks are running around like cockroaches caught when the lights go on. It seems no matter which way they go, their political health will suffer. Darn the luck!

My-My, What a Bad Year for the Census to Hit!

I just received my census form and right on the envelope cover, in bold letters, I was informed that failure to fill the census out would be a violation of the law! Not only that, but if I don’t fill out all the answers or if I should attempt to be ‘deceptive or evasive’ I could also face jail time! (Actually, the jail time doesn’t have the ring of fear for me it used to. Maybe if I did a stint, I could get some personal health issues taken care of for free). In any case, a few of the questions are somewhat sensitive and God knows who will have access to the information once you send it back in. (Note: Does anyone out there really trust these guys in Washington to get anything right anymore)? Look at the Department of Energy. When it was conceived of back in ’77, it was supposed to help America get off its dependence on oil. Now, 42 billion tax payer dollars later, it has become a megalithic monster that employs over sixteen thousand people doing God knows what. Actually, I know one thing it isn’t doing….

Shark Attacks Rise Worldwide, but Drop In the U.S.

The not-so-good news for swimmers: shark attacks worldwide rose marginally in 2009. But, the brighter news for those splashing into American waters is that attacks off U.S. shores plummeted more than 30 percent. This story, while true, leaves itself wide open for joke about attorneys. But sorry, I won’t stoop that low….Oh, what the heck. “What’s the difference between an attorney and a trampoline? You take your boots off to jump on a trampoline!”

For the Last Time…There are no Free Obama Money Stores!

Rumors keep persisting in and around Washington that you can get free money at ‘Bama Stores’ around the city. Please read our lips, “There is no free money being handed out to citizens!” Now, if you are a bank or a failing mega corporation, then yes there is plenty of free ‘Bama Money’. Corporations just need to call 1-800-BailMeOut and please make sure to round your request up to the nearest billion or so. Thank you!
