Be my valentine???

Minor rants and petite complaints, aka this stuff just bugs me department.

Why does every commercial with an adult male show me a guy who needs a shave? Has Gillette gone out of business?

I mean first we have business people, led by the computer/IT geeks showing up in sloppy garb. Supposedly it showed they were free thinkers and had independent thought. Funny, none of them ever thought of a nice suit, white shirt and tie.

But this latest trend is just blah. You want me to pay attention to an actor pushing your product?? And he can’t shave?

Please.

The Donald is running for Prez??? Sorry Donald. Your comments are far too logical and correct to be taken seriously. Stop at once and start worrying about gay marriage and dope smoking. Then we’ll pay attention. (That’s sarcasm, boys and girls.)

Obamie is going to balance the budget by not spending money that he would have spent otherwise using money that he never had. Okie dokie.

Oh, did I mention high speed trains zipping from place to place with passengers stepping from the train directly to public transportation??

Where does he get this stuff??


I doubt he gets it from scifi. Of course this issue, May 1950, features "Wine of the Dreamers." So who knows?

BTW - You will note that the young lady is scantily clad while our hero is covered from head to toe, gloves included. Obviously our future ladies have built in environmental controls.

The cover was by Bergey, one of the best known cover illustrators. His T&A covers, tastefully described as GGA (Good girl art) titillated a whole generation of young (and old) men.

And John D. MacDonald's featured novel went on to be published in hard cover, quite an accomplishment for a scifi story in 1950.  He became famous for his Travis McGee series of mystery thrillers and is close to being the seller of more books that anyone else of that genre.

But I digress........on to the exciting stuff??

Dumber and stupid.

On Feb. 15, on the recommendation of its Peace & Justice Commission, the Berkeley (Calif.) City Council is set to vote on a resolution to invite "one or two cleared" Guantanamo Bay detainees to resettle in Berkeley.

Peace & Justice Commissioner Rita Maran told me that the idea was to invite to Berkeley "the kind of people you'd like to have living next door to you or dating your cousin."

I guess that no one has told Rita that about 20% of those terrorists released have returned to attack the US.

Wait..... She's a Leftie...Now I understand.

Know what I would like to see? The voters of Berkeley throw Rita from the train, aka quit funding the “Peace & Justice” whatever that is and make her get a real job in the real world doing real work.

Oh, you though I meant Rita is dumb and stupid?? No. That’s the taxpayers of Berkeley for putting up with shit like this.


Technical and other problems.

Shawn sent me this video on how to fix your Blackberry.

Cheers!

"Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them." - Karl Popper

“Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants. It is the creed of slaves.” - William Pitt

"Logic. There is little logic among the cultural elite, maybe because there is little omnipresent fear of job losses or the absence of money, and so arises a rather comfortable margin to indulge in nonsense." - Victor Davis Hanson
