Got a Tissue?
Just Lock the Door, yo.
So the White House had a security breach the other day, where a guy jumped the perimeter fence and made it all the way into the front door.
Tina and I were talking about this tonight before dinner … and she had a brilliant -yet simple- solution for the President: “Why don’t they just lock the door?”
I laughed when she said it, but you know … it’s a pretty simple solution, really.
Designation of Organ Mountains – special guest!
Pretty Neat – Pops Suina (Tina’s Dad) was on sight for the designation of the Organ Mtns (in southern NM) as a national monument.
The Chinese Cut to the Chase
Sobering development, frankly, by the Chinese in regards to this ridiculous government shut-down here in the US. With the amount of our money they own and the amount of power they have, we don’t want to be messing with these guys long-term.
First – they are right. This is ridiculous. Bravado or Progress? I’m no politician – but I do know business. People who “make things happen” don’t fart around like these idiots in DC – you find a way to make it work, and together. Politicians, government employees – all people on the public dime – just don’t get it. Don’t care, don’t want to. Just work as little as possible, collect the check, get the benefits, then retire with full pensions. This crap simply does not fly in the private sector. If my CEO or any board members acted like this, they would all be out the door on their asses. Seriously. And no “pension” (seriously, pensions? What – is this 1954?).
Second – let’s not stir up things with China. NOT a good move.
Game On, DC – let’s grown up and do some work.
Users of Facebook: Deliver!

Brazilian Jails – Getting it Right
Using prisoners to provide electricity for the local boardwalk? Brilliant.
America … why can’t we take a closer look at this?
Okay, this is just getting silly now.
These guys in the East love burning effigies – I get it. But it seems they are running out of quality material, don’t you think (yes, that’s a pic of a drone)?
As a matter of fact, an “Effigy” is strictly defined as “a representation of a person, especially in the form of sculpture or some other three-dimensional form.” Don’t ask me where I got the pic, by the way. I took a screen shot of it on my tablet while reading the news in bed the other night because I found it so silly – but I can’t make this crap up.
From a group of guys who take things so literally, you’d think they’d work more aggressively at recruiting someone who is really good at paper machete or scale model design.
Extremists Lacking Effigy-Building Skills
Okay. Really? This is the best these guys can do with their effigy of Obama?
- size of head is wrong
- he’s wearing a tie, with a blue-jean jacket
- pants clash with the flag
- at least cut him out so it doesn’t look like you took the picture out of Time Magazine
- a little effort here, guys!
Background here – these guys are rabid because the Quran was burned. There are actually people dying there as a result of these scenes.
I don’t think I will ever truly understand theism, let alone all the fundamentalists in this world. People can believe what they choose – but this just seems way over the top to me.
Not a Man of Science, Apparently
So we have another Governor of Texas running for President … who is apparently more steadfast on Creationism than his counterpart in Utah, of all people.
