Some Things Are Downright Scary !

Tuesday brings revelations in the form of a You Tube video I have not previously seen. I do not know the validity of the comments made in the video nor do I know its' author. If the video contains an ounce of truth, however, then the next twenty or thirty years should be very interesting.

To comment on its' content without you seeing it first would be inappropriate. I assure you that you will be amazed at some of the statistics cited in the video. As usual, your comments are welcomed and appreciated.

                      

The Clinton-Obama democratic debate is on television tonight. It will be interesting to see how they react to each other. Here is some of my questions for the two "esteemed" candidates.

For Ms. Clinton: Although Mr. Obama did plagiarize parts of his speeches from another democrat, didn't you do the same thing

For Mr. Obama: You purchased your home and adjacent lot in Illinois from indicted Chicago slum lord, Tony Rezko, with whom you have been associated. Are there any improprieties there and was that ethical?

For Both Candidates: Since Ms. Clinton does not come from a dynasty and Mr. Obama has not been sent by God to lead us to the promised land, do you think it would bepossible to tell the voters specifically what you plan to do about the porous borders, the daily influx of illegal immigrants, runaway gasoline prices and the ailing economy?

Unfortunately, tonight will just be another pissing contest and the 24 million people that voted the other day on American Idol won't even be watching. Where's John Edwards when you need him?

                       

The Pictures: Brother Kirt sent me some shots of some usual trees that I believe that you will find interesting. I've also added a few interesting pics from a new site that I found.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: The following was sent to me by my pal, Garnett (edited and abridged).

The Seven Dwarfs always left early each morning to go work in the mine. As always, Snow White stayed home doing her domestic chores. As lunchtime approached, she would prepare their lunch and carry it to the mine.
 
One day as she arrived at the mine with the lunch, she saw that there had been a terrible cave-in.
 
Tearfully, and fearing the worst, Snow White began calling out, hoping against hope that the dwarfs had somehow survived.
 
"Hello, hello!" she shouted. "Can anyone hear me? Hello!" For a long while, there was no answer.
 
Losing hope, Snow White again shouted, "Hello! Is anyone down there?" Just as she was about to give up all hope, there came a faint voice from deep within the mine.
 
"Vote for Barack Obama,..... vote for Barack Obama."
 
Snow White fellto her knees, crossed herself, and prayed, "...OH THANK goodness! At least Dopey is still alive!"

Smooches,

Trees were cool huh? The u-tube info was overwhelming to say the least!! If science doesn't know everything about the human brain, how in the world can they build a computer to surpass its intelligence? Go figure!! Brother Kirt...............

The trees are wicked cool. As for the YouTube....Yeah it is scary one of the reasons I wrote the entry "Shortchanged by Technology"...Kind of makes the "Terminator" movies a little more realistic than we would like. (Hugs) Indigo
