The public opinion polls seemed to say whatever the pollsters wanted them to say; pro abortion or anti abortion, pro gun or anti gun, pro gay marriage, anti gay marriage, raise the debt ceiling or don’t raise it.  The one thing all the polls agreed on was that the whole bunch of politicos ought to be fired and they should start over . . . .  David, Sf.G.

Think Pink

When word of the Pink concert to be held in Houston hit, some of the Texas girls decided to go, but instead of the usual “Think Pink” or “We Love Pink” T-shirts, theirs said “Quit politickin’ and telling us all how to run the world and who to vote for, and just sing”  . . . . .  David, Sf.G.

Red Hat Society

The food had been excellent, but the service surly and poor, at the Red Hat Society’s weekly luncheon.  It turns out that the restaurant owners, Venezuelan political refugees from their homeland, thought the Red Hat Society members were showing respect for and mourning Hugo Chavez . . . .  David, Sf.G.

Not Exactly Clear

First it had been the “Fiscal Cliff,” now the “Sequestration” with both sides blaming the other, and both sides making wildly different claims as to the final outcome and how to fix it.  To Jim it was all about as clear as a foggy morning at the seaside.. . . .  David, Sf.G.

Hallway to Nowhere

Before he had been elected to Congress, Henry had studied some of the famous boondoggles hoping to educate himself and not make some of the same bad choices.  While on vacation in India, he saw the famous Hallway to Nowhere and wondered if this had been the inspiration for the famous Alaskan Bridge to Nowhere. . . . .  David, Sf.G.
