There are far too many thoughts running about in my head to get them all down in this blog.

Deciding what to write about has become such a chore!

Should I write about the lies President BO told in his press conference? (1-he would ask people only to “give up paying for things that don’t make you healthier.” 2-he would not sign a bill that increased the federal deficit or failed to cut health care costs. 3-declaring that his health care plan was an essential part of cutting that deficit.)

Maybe I should write about young people being forced to participate in mandatory national service programs in order to get student loans. (Is it my imagination, or does that sound Hitleresque?)

How about President BO chiming in on the arrest of a guy caught seemingly breaking into a house, who happened to be black and thus should not have even been questioned about it, let alone detained? Should I write about how NO president has ANY business weighing in on local police matters that are not of national concern?

Or I could write about Press Secretary Gibb's explanation of President BO's involvement in this issue, calling the arresting officer, "stupid": "He was not calling the officer stupid, okay?"

And my favorite Gibbsism on the subject: "I think there's a point where it becomes clear that the situation, as it was originally called in, is not the current situation..." (That's like me saying I wouldn't be as old as I am if I were just a bit younger than I am at the moment.)

Maybe I should write about how in a free society government should not be involved in the day-to-day functions of peoples' lives.

Should I write about the fact that the only jobs created so far by President BO's mighty plan have been government jobs, and most of them temporary? (I'm sure they are appreciated by those who have them, but it's a far, far cry from what His Majesty promised. Oh, wait, we still have four more years for millions of new jobs to appear.)

If I were a doctor I would be seething over President BO's statement: "Right now, doctors a lot of times are forced to make decisions based on the fee payment schedule that's out there. ... The doctor may look at the reimbursement system and say to himself, 'You know what? I make a lot more money if I take this kid's tonsils out,'" Obama told a prime-time news conference. The president added: "Now, that may be the right thing to do, but I'd rather have that doctor making those decisions just based on whether you really need your kid's tonsils out or whether it might make more sense just to change; maybe they have allergies. Maybe they have something else that would make a difference." I could write about that.

Lest you think I'm too hung up on President BO (why would you ever think that?), maybe I should point out how insufferably stupid Barbara Boxer has appeared lately...what with condescending to a black leader, poor handling of her chairmanship of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee and so on.

Well, with so many topics to garner my attention, I think the best course of action would be to just not post about anything at all.

So I will (won't).

I think.

PS: you really need to read this: GeeeeeZ today.

Well, that tag sure surprised me...very pleasantly! Thank you, Joe. Did you see it before Klaus's response I just added?

Joe, I can't tell you how much I agree with you on all of this stuff...Mr Z and I were watching TV news last night and I kept wanting to bound upstairs to write yet another post about's hard to limit ourselves anymore as there is JUST SO MUCH HAPPENING and we all wish more Americans were seeing it...
Sadly, our Americans HERE on our blogs pretty much KNOW the stuff we know!
But, we can try........and encourage people to send our blogs to nonbloggers who should be getting educated in a country where the media's so dishonest and obfuscating just to protect THEIR GUY.
Thanks, Joe..God bless you....
"TOO MANY THINGS TO THINK" but you do it so well.

Welcome to the club. My blogging has been drastically reduced since this guy took office. It's just overwhelming.

I have to limit myself. I need to remain calm. Take a deep breath. Choose my battle carefully.

I never knew how full of it someone could get until BO

For not posting on all those issues you did a bang up job of it!!!!

'Is that my imagination or does that sound Hitleresque?'

Yeah, it does sound Hitleresque since you just wrote a post comparing Obama to Hitler. And your commenter suggested it would be nice if Obama killed himself.

Obama definitely was out of line about Gates' arrest.

Joe said...

Sue: Of course, I do not agree that it would be nice if Obama killed himself. I do think it would be nice if he came to his senses, studied a little American and world history and learned a thing or two about liberty.

I want Him out of office, but not if it means Joe Biden or Nancy Pelosi become president. OOf! What a thought!

So I will opt for voting him out when the time comes.

Joe said...

Sue: BTW I did NOT compare him to Hitler. I laid out the domestic policies of Hitler. If there was a comparison made, it was made by the reader.

sue said...

Joe - Good that you are going to vote Obama out of office instead of any alternative.

But Joe, you have a way of squeaking out of things you say. You most certainly were comparing him to Hitler just as you tried to convince me that Rush didn't call Chelsea a dog. I may not be as smart as you but I am not stupid.

sue said...

BTW - You probably do not know that I have renounced being a liberal. I am a free agent for the next 3+ years.

Joe said...

Sue: Congratulations on your renouncement. Have you also renounced NOT being a nice person, 'cause I still think you are, although I refuse to say so for fear of offending you.
