If our current president is all that fired up on on private education and personal creativity, I wonder if Laura offered the alternative word "Catsup"?
No joke y'all. There really is a ketchup/catsup (whatever) named "W".
Please don't ask me how I found it , but it was probably a link from the last article "Bushisms" which, if we're not careful, might be "dubbed" as the national religion.
There are extremists on all sides of the body politic, and this is about as extreme as it gets.
What's next: Cheney Chops? Rumsfeld Ribs? Republican Rice? CIA Crab Cakes? And lets all be considered equal witha side dish of Condeleeza Cornbread with Colin Chitlins with Halliburton Hot Sauce for a little ethnic food flair!
I think, regardless of partisanism, that this is a very sad gimmick to get people to give money under the guise of goodness when there is a core of corruption running 'neath it all.
Someplace in the New Testament it talks about Jesus kickin' butt when Pharisees used the Jewish temple as a money changing place. Americans need to kick butt in November, revise the menu.
The comments link of www.wketchup.com (see below) has ridiculous comments on both the "right" and the "left."
And some of those comments make sense, but none are worth the time of day when it comes to issues facing our nation.
Hmmmm, I wonder if the tomato pickers are migrants working with no health insurance who are living in mobile shacks called one-room, dirt floor cardboard suites?
Hey, just tryin' to, as Dave Chappelle would say, "keep it real" and the ketchup people need to better learn how to "pick their spots." This ketchup stain thing ain't gonna wash with this voter. It plays on guilt.
So of anyone is going to help soldiers families with that money, let the Department of Education kick in a big ol' rebate for every college student like the ones who go for broke and half crazy, trying to get through medical school so they can help those soldiers.
And the LAST persons who should be MDs working with the American VA administration are Iraqi and Afghan physicians who failed to help my brother in law who had a lung disease that could have killed him (thanks to agent orange--see my blog). He's struggling for the breath of life and all they could do is ignore his 12 inch thick file, and say, "bend over and touch your toes! And that's the gospel truth. A lot of soldiers from Viet Nam died at home because of the lack of communication of stuff that our beloved but somewhat misguided military leaders ordered to be sprayed to "assist" with the war efforts of the late 60's and early 70's.
Makes one wonder: "What other biological fog planes are being sprayed over our loved ones and soldiers on the battlefields of the Middle East?"
I tell y'all if Iraqi oil was rich in crack cocaine, then the USA would be the biggest pimp in the western hemisphere.
What other things under this new umbrella of intelligence reorganization are being held in confidence "for the good of the sanctity of this oil-guzzling nation?
Don't blame me for keepin' it real. I didn't start this mess in the white house kitchen.
No, I don't usually get this riled up, but the government is screwing over thousands and thousands of families, all in the name of God.
And you know what else, ya'll? The VA can kiss my ketchup! I'll order my hotdogs plain, thank you very much.
