    I wonder if I'll have time to sit around and read and comment on this blog on my next job. Time will tell.

    Sit around? I'm currently helping my third customer of the day. My 2nd customer was a young man from Liberia! Very interesting fellow too.
    The ones who "sit around and blog" are the unemployed who should be doing something else, and those who would rather not work but still eat.

      Are you and Mary the same person, or do you just have her brainwashed?

      @Philip. you are fortunate that you are having a prosperous day. Kindly do not cast aspersions on others who blog. I have returned from vacation and have 4 more days off. Nor do I sit around and eat. As for the upcoming debate, SIGH.

      Whoah there, curb the paranoia. I wasn't pointing the finger at anyone but myself. It is slow here at work (the company is dying a slow death, which I predicted) and they gave me advanced notice that I'm being phased out in a few months. I was just hoping that my next job will be busier.

    Rather than address what, she addresses who. This is a common form of advanced backpeddaling used by Desperate Housewives of Atlanta on TV. (was told and have observed)

    When Governments such as the US, Israel, and Turkish officials are allowed to supply the nuclear black market and no one is willing to listen, it is a sad day for the passive public. Really! What makes anyone think that those officials do not represent gangsters on a global scale.

    @dazzle, I was taking issue with BOMBO imputing false if productive citizens aren't daily bloggers.
    (though i did use the opportunity to mention other groups known for being bored at home)
    God bless Sibel D. Edmonds, and RIP all those imprisoned or slain who have defied governemnt gag orders over the centuries.

      He explained he wasn't talking about you. Where's the apology or are you not man enough to admit when you're wrong??

    Paranoid? Sure. Those who are afraid of knowing who financed 9/11. Acourse even *that* would really be paranoia for these partisan microbloggers. More like an embarrassment for them. Wait. No. Being DEAD wrong about joyfully jumping on Bush's 9/11 Iraqi WMD war wagon DIDN'T EVEN EMBARRASS YA'LL.
    yep. paranoia it must be.

    * Can atheists get insurance for acts of God?

    * If Fed Ex and UPS were to merge, would they call it FedUP?

    * Does fuzzy logic tickle?

    * If they arrested the Energizer Bunny, would they charge it with battery?

    * I believe five out of four people have trouble with fractions.

    * Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines

    * Doing a job RIGHT the first time gets the job done. Doing the job WRONG fourteen times gives you job security

    * Artificial Intelligence is no match for Natural Stupidity

    * A person who smiles in the face of adversity... probably has a scapegoat.

    * If you can stay calm, while all around you is chaos... then you probably haven't completely understood the situation.

    If I had known that sharing something about my professional life would set Philip off like that – I probably would have done it much sooner.

    Ummm. That's not me after being "set off". Let me tell you the story of this 30 something feller from Phx. did to set me off. (He stalked my little girl online and i caught him. Caught him online and caught him at home alone.) he he
    But now I'm the gentle blogger from Colorady. The skinniest state in these here United States of America. (depressed native Coloradans don't eat much. Many of the corn fed who relocate here do though. There's an all-you-can-eat on every block) Mississippi won the fattest award for the 6th straight year. The city of Philadephia trimmed-down the most. Congrats Philly! Home of Bell crack. 🙂

    Is there ANY COMMENT here that relates to the topic? Nothing more than opinions that cannot even focus on the subject!

      Hey, I already said that the debates will be interesting and I can't wait...but the short answer to your question is no.

    For the record, as I drove from Colorado Springs to Phx., I listened to the same song over and over again. Chuck Loeb's "Sarao". (if you Youtube, listen to the second one down) What was I thinking of? What would you be thinking of?
