So…the Democrats won the House and Senate majority. Does it really matter to the us who is the majority? We’ll get sick of the democrats in 4 or 12 years and vote in the republicans again. It’s just a American cycle. Like real estate prices or sports team successes. The republican administration was arrogant and wanted to put a gun to the rest of world and say: “Be a democracy or else!” Iran, North Korea, Syria, Cuba, and a few others don’t like our methods and stand up to us because of the republican policies of the past 6 years. I don’t like a lot of those countries and their governments but we’ve got a few problems to take care of here. Like: bringing back the middle class, healthcare, Red Sox starting pitching, gas prices, fixing the Big Dig, global warming, the leaves in my back yard, Karl Rove, online poker and gambling, and most importantly who is going to be the next mayor of Worcester (Tim Murray just got elected to Lt. Govenor).
Rummy, you gave it a good shot
Donald Rumsfeld was arrogant. He always seemed incensed at reporters’ and their questions about Iraq and our failed policy. When your the Secretary of Defense and every military general from here to kingdom come says you should resign or be fired and you still stay, that’s arrogance. His firing has been called for as far back as 2004. I wonder what he’ll be doing for the rest of his years.
Best bet: a book. Title: “Memoirs of an arrogant man.”
Red Sox pay 42 million to talk to a man
If their bid is accepted, they can talk to this man about paying him more millions. Most likely $50 million over 10 years to keep talking to this man. The man? A pitcher from Japan.
Yes, potentially $92 million dollars to get a man to play a kids game and help us beat the other team: the Yankees. The took the caveman away from us last year, and we’re going to get flame thrower from Japan.
Sort of makes the republican administration’s attitude of the past 6 years seem normal.
