All very conservative/psychotic/corporate/anti-American… NPR says the above Republican asshole’s statement were in response to the President’s Saturday address… so they lead the story with the Republican response?!
And don’t allow the President a sound-bite…?
When all you have left is the fall, the fall matters…
If the Republicans in Congress told NPR they would stop picking on them only if Ari Shapiro were dead… we would find Ari Shapiro floating in the Potomac River with Hillary Clinton’s scarf in his pocket.
To make it worse, they followed this Republican/Corporate/Oil Company propaganda with Newt Gingrich and fucking Rick Santorum criticizing the Obama Administration about… you know,?.. I’m not even sure… they were just both going on about how badly managed America is under Obama… and this time, NPR didn’t even mention a Democratic response… the story simply was about giving Gingrich and Santorum a platform….
The next segment was NPR asking for money.
I wish the public humiliation wasn’t so public… Don’t ask me to pay for it.
I cooked Mario Batali’s recipe for Lamb: Roman Style… except I used Newman’s Own Caesar Dressing for the lamb marinade instead of following Mario’s recipe which basically had all the same ingredients as Newman’s Own Caesar Dressing.
When the tornado ravage victims of the Confederacy line up for FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) assistance this week, they should be required to show a long form birth certificate before receiving any Federal/Tax payer funds… What if we need them for a corporate bailout or bank failure?
I was sick last week and sat on the couch watching Sam Peckinpah movies. The kids today think SAW, SAW II, SAW III, SAW IV, SaW V, SAW VI and SAW 3D are violent and that Ludacris, Vin Diesel and that wrestler-Rock guy are tough,.. How about I unleash a little fucking Warren Oates on your ass!
Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia will make your girlfriend get up and walk out the door. .. But if you watch The Getaway, you will know how to get her back and behave herself… Ali McGraw her ass and she’ll be putting the DiGiorno in the oven and popping the cap off your beer.
It started with Major Dundee, a film I haven’t seen in decades. TCM was showing a ‘director’s cut’ of sorts with footage and scenes cut out by the studio before the film’s original release. I enjoyed the acting, the cinemaphotgraphy, the directing, the script. I must have needed a little macho, Americano… From there I had to watch The Wild Bunch and then Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid. (Slim Pickens and Katy Jurado!!!)...
Oh the violence… poetry and death in slow motion… and the scripts are smarter than I remember. Lots of interesting history going on in the background. Clint Eastwood can bite me… Little Bill, my ass.
I’m finding myself drawn-in to the Game of Thrones series on HBO. Kind of like Lord of The Rings, but without elves, orcs or hobbits… there is a dwarf, but he is a real dwarf, not a mystical, magical nanny dwarf or anything like that. And there is lots of HBO-sex, too… boobies and butts.
I’ve been interested in the Republican Town Halls that have been going on this recess… Republican Congressmen getting booed and hissed at and not answering questions, or holding the meetings in churches so they can arrest and mace Democrats from their districts and get away with it…
Where is the media coverage that captured the Tea Party Express as they interrupted Democratic Congressmen and Congresswoman Town Halls in 2010? Not interested anymore?
And on the technology front. I got an iPhone 4… and have no idea what to do with it. It sits there and I watch it and I wait for it to do something. Once in a while it buzzes and that means I got an email, but when I’m at work I am sitting in front of my computer, so I know I just got an email… and I refuse to touch the fucking thing if it buzzes while I’m driving home on the 405 freeway doing like 70 miles an hour… although that does not seem to stop my fellow commuters… and the text key pad is too small for my fingers, it takes me four or five tries to get the word ‘the’ written.
Some of the younger co-workers have these things sewn into the palms of their hands. They gave me a list of “apps” I simply must have… So I bought … yes bought the Twitter app… but DeRosaWorld has been on Twitter for a while and I can’t see the difference between the Twitter app and the Twitter website, other than one is on my lap top and one is on my phone, now… which is I guess the point, so I can tweet when I’m not in the office… or at home… or just because I can on my phone, now… which I would pay for as part of my data plan… instead of for free on my laptop…
One of the younglings got frustrated trying to explain to me how to use one of these apps and said: “You sound just like my mother when I brought her an iPhone… just use it.”
I’m told it will change my life.
All I know is when I was a kid… TV was free, I owned the records I bought and I didn’t have to sign a multi-year contract to make a phone call.
Speaking of records...A bunch of old-timers have come out with ‘releases’… we don’t say albums anymore, I’m told, in just the last two weeks: Willie Nelson & Wynton Marsalis, Robbie Robertson, Greg Allman, Paul Simon, Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, Lucinda Williams… to name a few. Where are these artists get played today? Satellite radio? Or do they just jump on iTunes and hope someone will find them.
