You Forgot, Didn’t You?

Monday, February 1st, 2010

When was the last time you heard anything about our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan?  Obama’s “State of the Union Speech”?  He gave a little flag wave and Congress cheered.  It might have taken about a minute or two of his 1-hour, 9-minute speech.

Major media networks – including Fox?  Well, listen to them.  After sifting through the Haiti earthquakes, our rescue efforts, Toyota recalls, the proposed budget deficits,  debates between Obama and Congress, and who won the Grammy Awards, unless more than a few Americans are killed on any given day, they’re just old news.

Does anyone even remember we have: over 100,000 troops in Afghanistan and over 133,000 in Iraq?  That’s about a quarter of a MILLION troops fighting for,  oh…….whatever…. at a cost of about $1-TRILLION dollars over the last 8-years?

You believed the last President and this one – and then forgot about the troops, didn’t you? I blame both of these guys.  I think they now have an equal amount of  blood on their hands.  But you believed them, didn’t you?  They told you it was a noble cause, right?

Hey, Afghanistan (which has a 75% illiteracy rate)  had a “democratic” election where many votes were delivered from tribal villages on the backs of  donkeys.  It only took a few days and “our” candidate (as corrupt as he is) WON!  Great….

And Iraq?  We whacked Saddam even though today many Iraqi’s think they were better off with him rather than being occupied.

Two unwinnable wars – and all the moderates say we can’t just pull out of both of them immediately –  I forget why.  I think I remember that same argument from the Vietnam years about 1969.  It took us just 6 more years to lose that war at a cost of 56,000 American lives and countless hundreds of thousands maimed.

Oh, never mind.  Great Superbowl coming up!  I’ll take New Orleans with the points.  You?

Don’t Pity Carla, Help Her

People constantly amaze me.  There were any number of people who actually believed me when I wrote this piece over a year ago.  Fortunately, only two sent money ($10 & $5 – which I promptly returned) but many people felt sorry for Ms. Bruni and still click on the search engines such as Google landing in my blotg.

Friends, if a person has multimillions of dollars,  has the prestige of being the First Lady of France, has had a wonderful past, and is still very beautiful – why in the world would you feel sorry for her?

What you see here is a model in a pose – that’s it.  I have no idea if Ms. Bruni is pigeon-toed and WHO CARES? As we used to say in college, “I wouldn’t kick her out of bed for eating crackers.”

Don’t  believe ANYTHING ANYONE tells you!  Old Italians know this.

Carla Bruni is the First Lady of France. Before becoming President Nicholas Sarkozy’s 3rd wife last year, Ms. Bruni was a supermodel, a singer, and an outspoken advocate for sexual freedom. She’s been quoted as saying, ” I’m monogamous from time to time, but I prefer polygamy and polyandry.”  Ms. Bruni was formerly the girlfriend of Mick Jagger.

This 1993 photo of Madame Bruni recently sold for $91,000 US at Christie’s auction house in London and is now embroiled in a multimillion dollar copyright lawsuit.

Unfortunately, the controversy surrounding the nude print has overshadowed a serious physical deformity in the Prime Minster’s wife: she suffers from intoeing, or, as we call it in America – being “pigeon-toed”.

There are three causes of intoeing in healthy children. They are metatarsus adductus, internal tibial torsion and excessive femoral anteversion.

Intoeing usually doesn’t cause serious problems but children with intoeing have trouble getting shoes that fit because of the curve of their feet. This fitting problem plus the fact other young children sometimes laugh at those who are pigeon-toed, often causes a lack of self-confidence in the intoed child.
