Thoughts On A Sunday

The cooler and cloudy weather made a trip to the laundromat necessary as we have not as yet replaced the defunct Official Weekend Pundit Clothes Drier. It rained on and off all day today which precluded any outside work from bring performed as well.

At least the foliage colors are brightening up a bit to make up for it.


The funding impasse has reached its sixth day and for the first time it appears President Obama might finally be willing to negotiate a solution. Maybe.

I ain't holding my breath.


The New England Patriots played the Cincinnati Bengals in Cincinnati and it turned out to be a battle between defenses. In the end New England couldn't get it done and they lost their first game of the season, 13-6, bringing them to 4-1.

What's worse is that they lost more players to injuries which weakens both their offense and defense.


Oh, I like this!

Yet another moniker being bestowed upon Obama: President Stompy Foot. In this case I saw it applied in tweets about people being kicked out of their homes due to the government shutdown because they happen to be on federal land.

No wonder the White House has been renamed the “Spite House.” Obama wants to make sure he pisses off as many people as he can so they will blame the House Republicans, but it's backfiring because the people being adversely affected are laying the blame where it belongs: Obama and Reid.


This is yet another example of affordable health care without insurance.

It's amazing how much cost can be cut out of a medical practice when they don't have to deal with all of the overhead health insurance adds.


It looks like Bogie's luck has had a turn for the better. She even got around to getting an external hard drive for backing up the contents of her computer.


Here's more on Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker telling the federal government to take a hike in regards to closing state parks that are on federal property but run and maintained by the state of Wisconsin.

Frankly we should be telling the federal government to take a hike on most things that are entirely the purview of the states.


Somehow I knew this: SEALs are quieter than ninjas. Well, at least until the SEALs open up with their automatic weapons, then they make a whole lot of noise!


It's funny how harsh reality easily blows away fantasies, particularly fantasies like ObamaCare.

Once the bill for health insurance premiums arrive, reality intrudes and supporters of ObamaCare find they have to dig a lot deeper into their pockets to pay for the same or worse coverage than they had before.

To quote one of my favorite movie heroes, “Welcome to the party, pal!”


And that's the abbreviated news from Lake Winnipesaukee, where the leaves continue to turn, the rain is ending after the weekend, and where preparations for storing the boat for the winter are being made.
