Weekly Roundup 10/12/2009

Just some opinions on the past weeks news in no particular order of importance

On Letterman:

Two of my marriages and most of my friendships have come from meeting people and having relationships at work.  I spend at least 9 hours a day at work.  Where else am I going to meet people; cleaning the catbox? In Letterman’s case I have not heard nor have I read any woman speak out on being coerced into anything for any purpose.  It seems to me the extortionist is in the wrong here and wanted to make a buck.    

On Polanski:

Sorry Whoopi, rape is rape.  There is no different kind of rape. Polanski raped a young girl against her will after drugging her and ignored her requests to stop.  A thirteen year old girl did not do anything to deserve this.  What I want to know is, where was her mother?  Common sense, you don’t leave your children alone like that.  Ploanski may be famous, but he broke the law.  He needs to go to jail. 

On Alan Grayson:

Thank goodness there is a Representative out there in Washington Land with some gonads.  It’s about time.  Keep speaking out Rep. Grayson, we need your voice. 

On Sarah Palin:

I don’t plan to buy the book or support any cause you stand for because I think you lie when it is convenient to lie.  You quit as governer of Alaska, now go away and be a regular person.  No one cares what you say, especially not me. 

On Senator Al Franken:

Thank you for standing up to do the right thing.  I agree with you, there is a place for mandatory arbitration, but it does not apply in cases of rape or abuse. Those that choose to abuse others need to pay, and those companies that get money from the government need to protect their workers not exploit them.

On the Senators that voted against Franken’s Amendment:

Be named and be ashamed:  Alexander (R-TN), Barrasso (R-WY), Bond (R-MO), Brownback (R-KS), Bunning (R-KY), Burr (R-NC), Chambliss (R-GA), Coburn (R-OK), Cochran (R-MS), Corker (R-TN), Cornyn (R-TX), Crapo (R-ID), DeMint (R-SC), Ensign (R-NV), Enzi (R-WY), Graham (R-SC), Gregg (R-NH), Inhofe (R-OK), Isakson (R-GA), Johanns (R-NE), Kyl (R-AZ), McCain (R-AZ), McConnell (R-KY), Risch (R-ID), Roberts (R-KS), Sessions (R-AL), Shelby (R-AL), Thune (R-SD), Vitter (R-LA), Wicker (R-MS).  (These same names keep showing up and I wonder why.)  I looked at a map showing the number of forcible rapes in each of your states.  Very interesting.  For those interested check out

On Keith Olberman:

Loved the special comment and it touched me.  We all need to stand up for Healthcare for our fellow man, woman, and child regardless of their ability to pay.  Donate to the National Association of Free Clinics Here

On Rush Limbaugh:

Leave the Rams alone.  Also, the idea of you being a judge for the Miss America Pageant makes me cringe.  Any woman that would want a leering fat blob like you judging her should be ashamed.  Note:  I have not watched this show for many years, because it demeans women everywhere and is a joke.  Adding Rush Limbaugh as a judge makes it a bigger joke.  Please.

Dinner with Scarah P on Ebay…  Now isn’t she picky???  The rules below.  Personally I would rather eat worms.

Dinner shall last no more than four hours, but could be less, in the sole discretion of Sarah Palin. Governor Palin reserves the right to refuse dinner with a winning bidder if, in her sole discretion, the winning bidder is not a suitable bidder based on her subjective standards of suitability, professionalism, background and other factors. In the event the high bidder is rejected for this reason, the high bidder’s bid will be refunded, if paid, and the next highest bidder shall be notified, and thereafter, until a suitable match is determined…

The winning bidder agrees, warrants and represents that you will not in any way advertise, promote, market or, utilize Sarah Palin’s or the Ride 2 Recovery’s name, likeness, voice, photograph, signature, logo or image in any manner, for any reason at any time without the prior written consent of Sarah Palin or the Ride 2 Recovery. In order to make the experience more enjoyable and interesting, the dinner will be “off the record,” and the winning bidder and his/her guests agree not to record the conversation, take notes or quote Sarah Palin in any manner in any media including blogs or other online communications.

Sarah Palin : HOW DARE YOU !

The Politico had the following story this evening:

The Republican National Committee appears to have spent more than $150,000 to clothe and accessorize vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her family since her surprise pick by John McCain in late August.

According to financial disclosure records, the accessorizing began in early September and included bills from Saks Fifth Avenue in St. Louis and New York for a combined $49,425.74.

The records also document a couple of big-time shopping trips to Neiman Marcus in Minneapolis, including one $75,062.63 spree in early September.

The RNC also spent $4,716.49 on hair and makeup through September after reporting no such costs in August.

Politico asked the McCain campaign for comment, explicitly noting the $150,000 in expenses for department store shopping and makeup consultation that were incurred immediately after Palin’s announcement. Pre-September reports do not include similar costs.

Spokeswoman Maria Comella declined to answer specific questions about the expenditures, including whether it was necessary to spend that much and whether it amounted to one early investment in Palin or if shopping for the vice presidential nominee was ongoing.

And here is what I have to say. HOW DARE YOU!

You are full of Moose Poo!

Srsly now.. I contribute yearly to a worthy cause called the Los Angeles Mission, its downtown LA on 5th street where people live in cardboard boxes along the sides of the buildings. The shelter gives some a bed an a hot meal for a night at a time, and each Thanksgiving for the last 71 years they give out a full Turkey Day Meal with all the trimmings to the homeless or needy folks in LA.

The way I figure it, $150,000.00 divided by the cost of a meal $1.86 = 80,645 meals.
