Ego Strokin'

First order of business today...I would like to give a BIG OL' OKIE THANK YOU (which may involve a nice smooch) to Cam Edwards for the absolutely fabulous (and completely unexpected!) COMPLIMENT he gave me, for no apparent reason. :) Thanks Cam!

Iam's Savory Sauce.
What the hell? It's sauce...that you put on your dog's dry food. For crap's sake.
I love my doggies, but gimme a break. Just when I thought I'd seen everything...I found out I was wrong.

Entertainment News...
I saw an advertisement last night for some movie called "The Curse" or "The Cursed" or something like that...Christina Ricci still looks like Wednesday Addams. I'd've hoped she'd have grown out of that by now.

For some reason that I cannot fathom, I actually watched the "One Day At A Time Reunion" show last night.
What was I thinking?

What, ME talk about politics?
I'm the first to admit that I am...somewhat a-political. Or to call a spade a spade, I'm completely ignorant when it comes to politics. However, once in awhile something catches my eye that I feel rather strongly about. So NATURALLY my first thought is to share it with all of you, my friends!

Here's a couple of small excerpts from an article by Ruben Navarette Jr. in today's The Daily Oklahoman:

"Maybe I'm getting to the age when I'm starting to be senile or nostalgic or both, but people are so angry now," Clint Eastwood said. "You used to be able to disagree with people and still be friends. Now you hear these talk shows, and everyone who believes differently from you is a moron and an idiot--both on the right and on the left."
Ruben goes on to say:
These days, when they talk politics, a lot of Americans tend to demonize, dismiss, and demand. They demonize anyone who disagrees with them. They dismiss anything their opponents have to say. And they demand that even those who agree with them do so 100% of the time.

...You can be proud of someone for accomplishing something significant, and still critical of him for positions on which you disagree. To maintain otherwise is to make people out to be less complicated than they really are, and politics a lot less interesting than it ought to be.

See, now that makes sense to me.
