Bushism of the Day

President George W. Bush sure has a way with words. Thus, couldn’t help but share this latest Bushism: “There’s only one person who hugs the mothers and the widows, the wives and the kids upon the death of their loved one. Others hug but having committed the troops, I’ve got an additional responsibility to hug and that’s me and I know what it’s like.”—Washington, D.C., Dec. 11, 2002. For more Bushisms, go to: Slate. These are just classic! Btw, if you want to get your hands on a talking Dubya, check out It may be too late to get […]

Bush II is Gearing Up for WAR

I’m sure this is no surprise to many, but it looks like America is going to war sometime next year. According to Secretary Colin Powell, Iraq is in “material breach” of a U.N. disarmament resolution. And “the world will not wait forever.” God help us!! Since Bush II wants to finish what Bush I didn’t, I have this awful feeling that things are going to be a lot worse than Desert Storm. Saddam is not going to go quietly. Even if he is captured and or killed, this won’t be a 100 day war. As with Afghanistan, American/British/UN troops are […]

My One Week Anniversary

It has been a week since I set up this site and starting writing this blog. According to the statistics provided by my hosting company, I’ve had 403 unique visitors. WOW!!! Of course, they then go on to tell me: “Be aware that measuring unique visitors is very inaccurate. Check the “Hits by unique IPs” statistical report for more information.” So I check the hits by unique IPs, and guess what, while the number is indeed lower, I still think it’s impressive. Total is 167 unique IPs. For only a week, I’m pleased. Of course, this now makes me start […]

Nothing Fits Anymore

Today I had my annual physical. Despite the fact that I’m fighting my third cold/flu this season, according to my doctor, everything checks out. I’m just a little run down from all the drama that went on this year. But one issue that needs working on is weight. No surprise there. This is something I have battled since college. It’s so frustrating. Every time I think I have the problem conquered, something happens to throw me off. I suppose I need to start thinking of my weight in terms of my health and not just in terms of my physical […]

Pandering Politicians

So Senator Lott went on Black Entertainment Television (BET) last night to beg forgiveness. Give me a break! Why couldn’t he have gotten his apology right the first time? Better yet, why didn’t he keep his racist thoughts to himself? And does he really think that we believe he was referring to “Thurmond’s strong anti-communist, pro-defense and fiscally conservative positions” when he talked about the problems that could have been avoided if the country had voted like Mississippi did in 1948 presidential election? And to top it off, he now “absolutely” supports affirmative action. Whatever! He needs to resign from […]
