A Slap of Friendship

Great story: there was this kid who lived in our neighborhood back when I was in junior high. He allegedly got into some tussle with, of all people, a girl in the neighborhood; and further, he allegedly slapped her. Now, I don't remember all the people involved in this tussle. I just remember being there when the explanation was offered: it was a slap of friendship.

Can you think of a more absurd or ridiculous thing to say?

Still thinking?

OK, enough suspense! The Senate hands Bush a major defeat, how about that?! Yes, God help me for I think I have wet myself, that's actually the title of the Reuters headline!

And there's this gem from the article...

"No one benefits now, there is nothing to look forward ... it's very disappointing," Rosa Rosales, the national president of the League of United Latin American Citizens, told Reuters.

Oh, my goodness people! Let's get a few things straight.

1) Reuters: Your knee-jerk hatred of Bush is positively hysterical in this instance, because everyone with nominal brain activity knows that what actually happened was that regular Americans told the elites that there'd be hell to pay if this monstrosity got passed. Regular Americans defeated the Senate elites and Bush. Credit where credit is due, right?

2) Hey, Rosa Rosales! You know who benefits now? Regular American citizens, my favorite people in the world!

Commence the happy dance.

And an extra mid-air click of the heels ... on this same day, the Fairness Doctrine amendment to the FCC funding bill has been defeated in the house by a margin of 3-1 (for this year's funding, at least)!

Three cheers for the House!
Hip-hip, HUZZAH!
Hip-hip, HUZZAH!
Hip-hip, HUZZAH!

I don't know about the House, but three cheers for the American people!


Now, Stay Awake! There's work to be done!

There's work to be done indeed, Mom!

Thanks for the reminder.

Now everyone go out and see "Live Free or Die Hard" this weekend, LOL!

It has been a good couple of days for Americans, thanks be to God.
