A good bet?

Joe Biden was in China trying to bolster confidence in the U.S. economy, saying on Friday – “No one has ever made money betting against America.” Well, clearly the V.P. hasn’t watched a lot of major golf or men’s tennis tournaments lately.


Regarding God and Tim Tebow. Maybe it’s just that He loves Tim so much He doesn’t want to have him on the field getting tackled all the time.

Sarah Palin claims now on her Facebook page that she went to the National World War I Museum in Kansas City last week, although no one at the museum apparently saw her inside.

Palin did post a picture with her daughter and niece, which a reporter said was from inside the Westin in Kansas City.

So maybe what she meant was “I could see the museum from my room.”


You have to wonder, did Michele Bachmann consider ordering her speechwriters to get to work on something blaming President Obama for overthrowing Moammar Gadhafi.


Good to see the rebels doing well in Libya. Let’s just hope that the difference between rebels and dictators doesn’t turn out again simply to be who’s in charge.

Kim Kardashian got married this weekend. Straight men were as likely to watch the television coverages as Rick Perry is to watch the Science channel.


Meanwhile, on a cooler wedding note, country singer Chely Wright was also married last weekend, to her girlfriend Lauren Blitzer. (Wright only came out last year.)

To do this as a country singer and a Christian takes serious guts. Good for Chely.


The Help,” was #1 at the box office this weekend. Wonder how many women told their husbands, “it’s okay honey, we don’t have to go, we can stay home and watch coverage of the Kardashian wedding.”

A Brett Favre lookalike, wearing a #4 jersey, was apparently signing autographs in Green Bay last week. Though Favre’s “travel coordinator” said Brett was not in Green Bay. Many fans, however, were able to figure the deception out quickly – when the imposter made an instant decision about signing.


Foxnews.com is critical of Obama’s taking what their writer Chris Stirewalt calls “a fantasy preppy getaway in New England, as the nation’s economy reels.” Gosh, must have missed Fox’s outraged response when W. took those fantasy cowboy getaways to his ranch.


Mitt Romney currently has three homes, a townhouse outside of Boston, a $10 million vacation home in N.H, and a $12 million 3000 sq.ft beachfront place in San Diego. Now he wants to bulldoze the California place to build an 11,000 sq ft home, because the current place is “inadequate for their needs.” Can’t imagine how Mitt gets a reputation for being out of touch.


And finally, okay SF Giants fans, admittedly Brandon Crawford can’t hit. But the difference between a .190 average and a .240 average is five hits out of 100 at-bats. Maybe a hit a week. Crawford’s glove takes away almost a hit a game compared to what Tejada-Cabrera let get through. So why isn’t he on the big league roster?

    Geologists have discovered what the believe are the world’s oldest fossils.

    1) They made this conclusion after indentifying one of the fragments as a piece of finger wearing a Toronto Maple Leafs Stanley Cup Championship ring

    or

    2) Initial reports are that the trove consists primarily of Toronto Maple Leafs Stanely Cup Champion memoriabilia

    QUOTE FROM 8/22: “To do this as a country singer and a Christian takes serious guts. Good for Chely.”

    ‘Gay Christian is an oxymoron’. You CAN’T be both!


    • Sorry Freddie, but you are wrong. I know a number of Gay christians. As one gay young man says “God doesn’t make junk.” But you are entitled to your opinion. It’s still a free country.

      • Berney Says:

        I agree Janice. I have a gay friend and he most definitely believes in Christ. Isn’t that what makes a Christian?

      • Freddie Says:

        Sorry, but both rebuttals are wrong. The Bible, the book Christians claim to follow, is VERY VERY clear that homosexuality is a sin. 1 Timothy 6:9 (NIV) says: “neither the sexually immoral…nor homosexuals will inherit the kingdom of God.” What part of this don’t you understand? If a person is gay, that’s their business, but to be gay and claim to be a Christian doesn’t work. This isn’t my opinion….it is the law of God! I’m certainly not judging homosexuals, just quoting what the Creator of men and women says. Why don’t you get it??
