Danish writer Mikael Wulff and cartoon artist Anders Morgenthaler, “the creative duo known as Wumo,“ have created a brilliant series of graphs that illustrate some of the basic painful truths of everyday life in the Western world. Their graphs and diagrams are snarky and sarcastic but, for the most part, true. This, coupled with their simple and official-looking design, makes them a delight to look at. Wulff and Morgenthaler share these images on Wumo (formerly known as Wulffmorgenthaler). If you think you may have seen their work before, it should come as no surprise – they are a fairly successful cartoon duo. Their rise to success started in 2001, when they entered and won a cartoon competition. When they won, they received a one-month run of their comic strip in Politiken, a national Danish newspaper. Their popularity soared with the new exposure, and they soon found more and more publishers, including several blogs and newspapers throughout Scandinavia and Germany. Their most recent accomplishment was becoming a regular cartoon strip in the New York Times.

That does it. I will always choose Southwest Airlines if I EVER fly anywhere in the United States again.

Nobody Gets Email:Okay readers…I just got this, and at least one reader will be proud to know, I went to Snopes who said it was a fake. But it’s a great little story and it SHOULD have happened.So, in honor of all Navy Seals, I’m putting it up anyway, along with another dog who, has probably scared more than his share of house intruders.Notice…the dog and Rob have the same stare.(Thanks to Kris)*********************Bin Laden Shooter Rob O’Neill Mistakenly Attacked By Street Thugs Seeking To Collect Debt From NeighborPosted on December 15, 2014 by Raoul Stockton in Headlines, Weird News**************BUTTE, Montana –
***************Robert O’Neill, the former United States Navy SEAL who shot and killed Osama Bin Laden, had his home mistakenly invaded by members of a street gang this morning shortly after 1AM. O’Neill was uninjured, the five intruders all suffered injuries and remain hospitalized, but are expected to make a full recovery. Their names were not released in anticipation of the oncoming media storm.*****************Butte Police Commissioner Bartholomew S. Harrington told members of the Associated Press in a brief press conference that the five men, part of a local street gang connected with the infamous Crips, were seeking to collect on a drug debt and invaded the wrong house, with the intended target just so happening to be the next door neighbor of O’Neill’s.
********************“Mr. O’Neill had just turned in for the night, but was awoken by a loud crash when his backdoor was abruptly kicked in. As the five thugs ran aimlessly through the home, Mr. O’Neill used silent hand-to-hand combat tactics to individually disarm them of their weapons. Once Mr. O’Neill had taken down the five men and secured his home, he brewed a pot of coffee and called the police station. Those boys sure did find the wrong house!” commissioner Harrington said as he chuckled.O’Neill had little to say on the matter when Butte Daily Times journalist Kevin Williamson interviewed the celebrated war hero.
*****************“It was nothing really. Those kids didn’t have their mission planned out properly and hit the wrong target. I hated to break their wrists and dislocate each of their knees like I did, but it was necessary in order to immobilize the invasion. I hope they get the money that is owed to them once they get out of jail and decide to live better lives. My main concern is getting my back door fixed. Those boys really did a number on the door jamb,” O’Neill stated.************************The neighbor who was the intended target seems to have abandoned home and has not been found by police. According to the men in custody, the debt was over a $50 bag of marijuana.
HEY! It looks like the Donald is gearing up to really run this time.
Here’s some things he said at that conference:
On why Jeb and Rubio couldn’t make up their minds on the Iraq war:
‘Well, I don’t know,’ he said. ‘We spend $2 trillion, we lost thousands of lives, we’ve got wounded warriors – who I love more than anybody – all over the place. And you can’t say if it was a bad thing?’
He also lamented the fact that the U.S. ‘got nothing’ in return.
‘Remember, I said we should keep the oil.’
‘I like Jeb Bush. He’s a nice person. But when he was asked about Iraq, he couldn’t give an answer,’ Trump said. ‘It took him four days before he got his answer straight.’
On Carly Fiorina:
Fiorina’s next career turn was a 2010 U.S. Senate campaign against Barbara Boxer, which she lost by ten points.
‘She loses in a landslide. A landslide!’ Trump boomed. ‘And now she says, “Okay, now I’m going to run for president.” Give me a break!’
He has a point. But I do like Carly, because like the Donald, she is a business person, BUT she doesn’t have the “I’m going to GET ER DONE, attitude that the Trump has.”
He goes on:
‘It’s hard for me,’ he said. ‘I like these people but they don’t have it. It’s not gonna happen. Even the people I do like – it’s not going to happen, folks. They’re not doing what I do. I do it better than anybody.’
‘It’s going to be an election, in my opinion, about competence. And I’m the most competent by far.’
We live in a tough world, and as we saw today, the TTP was passed by the Senate. Donald would have fought that with everything he has.
Not many in the Congress did.
Nobody Cares if Donald Trump runs for President, in fact I’m hoping he does. It takes one to know one, and Donald knows the rich who rule this world, and won’t back down from a fight. He ENJOYS being victorious.
And he starts off with letting everyone know..he is NOT a politician. (Although, even in business you have to be) and that alone is what the whole country is sick of. Smart.
The people who WILL care if he runs are the GOP in Washington D.C…you can bet, they are already digging up the dirt.
But ask yourself: Who would you rather listen to the next 8 years of your life?
For a change…instead of my usual Nobody musing on history, I could not pass up these wonderful historical pictures sent to me by my friend Mona…while I can’t post them all, I picked out the ones that I thought really struck me as being pertinent to my nobody mind, and hopefully yours! See the rest of the pictures ….
Thanks to Mona, and enjoy!
Not many men in the world can match Mark Stein when he gets on a rant…about ANY subject. He’s funny, witty, sarcastic, and arrow-to- the- heart, devastatingly damaging to all liberal progressives policies, which is why you almost NEVER hear any democrat or liberal talk about him. He is that feared.
Since Obama gave a speech to the National Guard graduating class this week on the dangers of climate change, I thought Mark Stein should get the Nobody’s Fool Award for this week.
So, Congratulations Mark….you win the Nobody’s Fool Award for pretty much the next century! Don’t EVER stop!
Enjoy! And ….learn from the Obi Wan master of truth…the incredible, Mark Stein.
It’s GOT to be hard to come up with fresh ideas in a country where more than a third of the people don’t work. All those people sitting around doing nothing is not a good thing, so the democrats have come up with a solution.
Obama started this. He wants the taxpayers to pay for the first two years of college for everyone…Okay, I’m in.
Then Bernie Sanders, not to be outdone, wants FOUR year of free education: Even better!
The Vermont senator and presidential candidate has introduced legislation to eliminate undergraduate tuition at four-year public universities and colleges. His bill, called The College for All Act, would lower interest rates on federal student loans, give graduates a chance to refinance existing loans at lower rates, and stop the government from making profits on student loans.
But, wait: Hillary is not going to be outdone by those men.
Hillary wants debt-free college for everyone! I’m not sure what that means in Hillary land doublespeak. Does this mean she wants to give all citizens free educations? It has to mean that, because you have to PAY for college, so the only way you can be debt free is to not have to pay at all. Or do you build up that bill and it’s just erased at the graduation? And does she mean to forgive all the debts and student loans so far? She doesn’t say.
No, Hillary wants the state to not only provide free college, but free child care. Right after the mother pops that baby out, some state nurse will enter that little bundle into a Hillary state-run day care center.
Hillary Rodham Clinton says child care needs to become a national priority and is urging Republicans in Congress to provide more federal money to help working families care for their children.
The former secretary of state says Wednesday that Republicans should “get on board or get out of the way.” She says child care could be improved through new tax breaks to parents or grants to states.
Don’t kid yourself. Someday, welfare will no longer be there, so in order to eat, you will have to work, and you will have to work right after you have that baby. And Hillary will be there to make sure all the babies grow up to obey and respect…
Big Brother Hillary.
Yes, it’s got to be hard when a nation has been so destroyed economically that people can’t even afford a day care center let alone college.
And according to the news…next year, we won’t be able to afford chickens.
Hillary needs to get to work on that. I want my debt-free chicken eggs, don’t you?
Hillary said today that the deck is stacked in favor of the top. A CEO in America, she said, makes 300 times more than his employees.
She wants to “reshuffle” that deck. This is an impossible task.
First, you have to HAVE a deck to shuffle. We don’t have many left.
Judge Napolitano, in his book It Is Dangerous to be Right When the Government Is Wrong, explains why…why America lost all her decks—It’s because of government regulations.
All regulations violate property rights in some way or another. Tariffs, excise taxes, duties, and sales taxes violate the property rights of the sellers of the goods because the price for their goods is raised, making them less competitive and less profitable: as well the buyers of these goods are forced into paying higher prices for goods, thus paring with more money than would have been the case had these regulation not been in place.
The government decides one day that it is going to charge you a widget licensing fee of one hundred thousand dollars per year for the privilege of being allowed to use your land how you wanted to, this not only decreases the value of your factory since there is a hefty cost imposed on anyone who wishes to use it, but it also is a taking of one hundred thousand dollars of your property every year.
Let’s say then the government says you have to hire union workers. Now to make widgets you must give workers higher wages, bigger benefit packages, longer vacation times, shorter working hours and better pension for retirement. And if they demand you deal with a certain union giving the union greater power for bargaining in the future. And you are forced to guarantee that you will never use improved machinery or roots that could produce widgets faster and more efficiently tan any of the current union workers because then they would be out of a job.
To make matters worse, your main widget producing competitor for Asia has an unregulated widget factory comprised of only robots that are producing the cheapens and highest quality widget in the world. Now your business is regulated to bankruptcy. And this is precisely when the government will swoop in to bail out your creditors., kick you out of the management office, purchase your business and factory for pennies on the dollar, and transfer ownership of it to your union workers– the UAW. I mean the UWW.
Nobody Wonders what percentage of wages Hillary makes compared to her hairdresser. I bet it’s more than 300 times. And Hillary is a BIG fan of government regulations.
“Are we going to set our hair on fire?” because we lost a few cities?….he asked.
Well…sure! Obama has already set the world on fire, what’s a few more singed ends? Obama really doesn’t give a hoot about the democratic politics that have burnt down American cities, why should he care about some dustbin hole in Iraq?
It’s summer! The golf courses are in green.
Visions of Richard Pryor came to mind—Did this happen in the White House, a crack pipe got out of hand in the Oval Office, and some clever speech writer thought it would make a fine rebuttal to Obama’s failure in the Middle East?
Who says stuff like that at a press conference?
Nobody Knows…but nobody believes that Obama is going to ‘take Ramadi back’. or that he even wants to. If he armed the Kurds and Christians MAYBE they wouldn’t run from ISIS, but they are the last people Obama wants to arm. Obama is running from ISIS as surely as the Iraq army he says will go back in and take back all that has been lost.
Just let him finish this putt.
By the way…he likes to run…have you noticed? His little jog, whenever he knows the camera’s are on when he exist his planes? He thinks it makes him look cool..
I’m waiting for the big trip.
And speaking of running…
From the Daily Caller:
New documents obtained by Judicial Watch and made public Monday show that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other senior officials under President Obama were given intelligence within hours of the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi attack describing how it had been planned at least 10 days in advance “to kill as many Americans as possible.”
Gee…that old news again? Men go out every night in Libya just to kill Americans. Heck, they go out in America to kill Americans. What do you want from this poor women? Her emails? She WANTS to give you those emails. Better yet, she wants to really talk to her old friends…because she has so many of them. Like that Sidney Blumenthal who just happened to want to start businesses in Libya and sent her lot of emails telling her all about how a video is making people mad in Libya…
Hillary, caught in another lie. You’d almost think Bill was behind all of this, it’s just too good.
So when Hillary was at one of her staged events, a REAL reporter gave her a hard question…and oh..how DARE he.
She would answer his question in her own good time.
So, Hillary pops out like praise dog…and then back in again. She runs and hides. Back to her jet. Back to her luxurious life. I wouldn’t doubt if she has at least ten maids to press her pantsuits. Michelle has 27, Hillary could do with a few more don’t you think?
And Nobody Knows I think this is about the most perfect ad ever made to sum up the Queen:
Nobody Knows how many people could survive a Queen right after we’ve had a Pharaoh, but I wonder how many people in the United States would vote for the Presidency to be stripped of all powers but state dinners?
Raise your hands?
What is never reported is how many state dinners Bill and Hillary threw in the White House when they lived there..And how much it costs us.
The couple that used to sell the Lincoln Bedroom has move up to selling foreign nations their time. If Hillary becomes President, she might be tempted to sell the whole House.
Nobody Knows that there is another sign of tyranny coming:
Now, the government OWNS all water: From Moonbattery:
You might be aware that it is illegal to collect rainwater on your own property in some states, but did you know that doing so could actually land you in jail? That is exactly what is happening to Gary Harrington of Eagle Point, Oregon. He is now facing a 30-day jail sentence and fines of more than $1,500.
His crime? Harrington has been collecting rainwater in three reservoirs on his property, and the government doesn’t like it. In Oregon, all water is considered property of the state whether it flows from the tap or falls from the sky.
Yes, you can’t collect your own rainwater in Oregon…and it’s only a matter of time before it becomes Federal Law.
And if that doesn’t set your hair on fire, remember:
You can go thirty days without touching Michelle’s lunches, but only 4 days without water.
Tell me these people aren’t on Coke.
Just a nobody daily reminder:
“It only stands to reason that where there’s sacrifice, there’s someone collecting the sacrificial offerings. Where there’s service, there is someone being served. The man who speaks to of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to b the master. ” Ayn Rand
Admit it…everyone at sometime in his life gets lost. I once got lost in East St. Louis, by missing my turnoff at the highway crossing over the Mississippi. I put on my baseball cap, hunched down behind the wheel as low as I could, and prayed…nobody would notice my white skin, because it was about 2 O’clock in the morning. I truly thought I was as good as dead. And this was in 1975.
So, this week, I thought we talk about a few lost souls that got lost last week: Two Teens in Canada VS John Kerry.
Let’s start with the two teens first. Being typical teenagers, they thought that, “Hey dude! Let’s go get stoned in the park!” would be fun. Teenagers going into the woods to get stoned has been happening ever since The Whole Earth Catalog showed everyone how to grow marijuana in their backyards. It’s something that happens probably more often than bears shitting there.
Anyway…there they were, in Canada, roaming a 50-acre undeveloped park, wandering around lost, and decided, in their infinite wisdom to call 911 and ask for help because..they probably ran out of Oreo cookies.
When a police dispatcher asked one of the young men if there were any landmarks around, he responded that he saw trees. So the dispatcher tried asking him to shout “Help” to alert the searchers, according to Acting Sgt. Adam Morris. Instead, the man said “Yeah,” in a quiet voice.
“Our dispatcher was able to determine they were on something,” Morris said.
I swear to the Godda di Vida, I have NO idea where John Kerry is at any given moment in time…he is all over the place. Even HE doesn’t know where he’s at. I guess the plan when you are Secretary of State is not to make phone calls, but to GO to the actual place and talk to whomever will see you. And if they don’t see you, no problem: you can eat at some pretty nice restaurants. John Kerry goes to so many places, you can’t tell me he remembers where he is at, at any given moment, and I don’t think he really cares. He just wants to talk…to anybody. Like those two teens, the reports we get from him are just as clueless and nebulous as those teens. Yesterday, he was in South Korea, and last week he was treading all over the middle East trying to get a deal with Iran. Now he is trying to write global laws for the internet:
Speaking on behalf of the Obama administration, Kerry said that Internet policy is “a key component of our foreign policy.”
First, no country should conduct or knowingly support online activity that intentionally damages or impedes the use of another country’s critical infrastructure. Second, no country should seek either to prevent emergency teams from responding to a cybersecurity incident, or allow its own teams to cause harm. Third, no country should conduct or support cyber-enabled theft of intellectual property, trade secrets, or other confidential business information for commercial gain. Fourth, every country should mitigate malicious cyber activity emanating from its soil, and they should do so in a transparent, accountable and cooperative way. And fifth, every country should do what it can to help states that are victimized by a cyberattack.
It’s that last part where John seems to find his place: Yes. Every country should to what it can to send money to other countries that need our help. When it comes to redistributing the American taxpayers money, John Kerry is NEVER lost.
So who win the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week?
Is it the two teens, who probably dropped Acid and got so lost, the thought of having to sleep in a big scary forest at night without their X Boxes was just too much to bear?
Or is it John Kerry, who never recovered from losing the run for the Presidency to George W. Bush. He’s in some kind of weird “I can’t believe I lost” perdition.
Let’s put our hands together for John Kerry!
John Kerry….has no clue..that he is. Like the teens, he is just taking a long lost walk—- in the woods.
Somebody dial 911!
Last night, my husband and I watched one of our favorite movies: Armageddon. It must have been made before 2001, because the twin towers were still in the New York Skyline.
That skyline is now…changed forever, and whatever you may think of the lone FREEDOM Tower, it just doesn’t live up to the same magnificence. Even when they make movie about New York now, I don’t care how many times they show the Empire State building, New York is not the “top of the heap” as it once was.
What made the movie so great, was the story of the indestructible American spirit portrayed so well by Bruce Willis, and his merry crew of oil mine drillers who land on a comet about to destroy the earth, and with the help of the (at that time) incomparable NASA..save the planet.
It was so American.
Kids in the movie were playing with Space Shuttle toys.
I felt sad as I watched this. The shuttles are gone. NASA is gone. America has to hitch a ride (at a very high price) with the Russians if they want into space.
Most of this has happened under Obama.
After all our other wars, America made sure the countries we left had better future: Japan. Germany. Not anymore. We have become merely pinpricks in a world where, we are now…just another kid on the block.
And I couldn’t help but say something during the movie…because DAMN IT...our elite leaders are weakening us on purpose and for reasons that only benefit the few. And it makes me furious. But, my husband, gets angry if I even mention it.
To a man, if he can’t solve the problem, it does no good at all to stress out about it.
Logically speaking, it’s a survivors mentality. I know, he is right. But…I just can’t help myself.
Which is why, my next movie pick is going to be Beethoven II.
The top news of Hillary’s criminal mass extortion of foreign funny money going into the Clinton Foundation, got a relief last week, because all the attention went OFF her, and onto one of the Clinton’s most dearest friends.
Yes, I’m talking about George Stephanopoulos. That unflappable little man on the Today Show, (and his own show)—who tries to look fun and entertaining, but after living with the Clinton’s’ for decades, the fun is pretty much gone the way of George’s boring presence. He has two faces: Serious, and..serious with a small smirk. And I think, only one suit.
Evidently his crime of not reporting a $75,000 donations to the Clinton foundation was such a crime that he was forced to apologize.
“I made charitable donations to the Foundation in support of the work they’re doing on global AIDS prevention and deforestation, causes I care about deeply,” he said. “I thought that my contributions were a matter of public record. However, in hindsight, I should have taken the extra step of personally disclosing my donations to my employer and to the viewers on air during the recent news stories about the Foundation. I apologize.”
Oh gee. What a surprise. He not only gives them money, he was one of the movers in their “war’ room, and do you really think he has given that job up? No, he is working with the Clinton foundation, so, what? Everybody knows that.
He said in his book, he suffered from depressions, and I believe him. Can you imagine how many times he had to sit outside one of Bill’s Hotel rooms watching out for reporters while Bill had his nightly sexual romps? Was he measuring screams in the next room?
Who wouldn’t get depressed?
On Fox’s Sunday programs, Bret Humes was making the point, that this will hurt his career— because George is suppose to be a journalist, and journalists cannot be seen as bias. How he could say that with a straight face is beyond me, but he did. And so, then Karl Rove, was asked the same question. Who was he to criticize George?
After all, like George, Karl was a close adviser to HIS President, and is on FOX news so much, it might as well be renamed the “Karl Rove” show. (Clearly, Roger Alies is not THAT stupid.)
Karl replied that he didn’t claim to be a journalist.
Ha ha ha! Well then, what exactly ARE you Karl? A man with a chalkboard?
To the nobody out here in TV land, it seems beyond hypocritical that FOX can even make this case, because not only is Karl Rove on Fox every day, so is Dana Perina, George W. Bush’s old press secretary, and it Dana that keeps the Bush family smack in the public eye every day, by reporting on their birthdays, when they jump out of planes, sneeze, burp, tell a joke, cut wood—and now, she has even written a book, which we are told is filled with how the Bushes are the most wonderful people that ever walked the planet.
At least Stephanopoulos is trying to hide his devotion.
So, in America now, if you were a press secretary or adviser to a President (of either party)— after your boss leaves the White House, you will continue your job promoting your old bosses policies and legacy on TV.
None of these people are journalists.
But, notice—- nobody is talking about Hillary right now, are they?
And lately, Obama has been going after FOX news. And it’s not just Obama. The other day, I was watching a Marvel comic book TV sitcom called The Agents of Shield, a fantasy world program about a secret agency which goes after superhuman alien weirdos. Right in the middle of a fight scene, one of the black characters made a nasty comment about FOX news.
It was so out of place in a gun scene, I went…WHAT? I now suspect that pretty soon the cooking shows will be making omelets and the cooks will claim that FOX news is spoiling the breakfasts of America.
Do these actors get paid to say this stuff? (You know what I think.)
And so, liberals will continue to attack FOX News, and George Stephanopoulos will continue to work for Hillary, and Karl for the Bush family.
So far, Karl is down two election loses. Nobody pays much attention to George.
I don’t think either one of them is going to effect the next election, but clearly, the Clinton’s and the Bushes think otherwise.
Wait….I am forgetting Obama’s adviser…and the real reason Obama has to attack FOX news. After all…..Obama’s ex adviser, now propaganda machine on cable is not exactly pulling in the ratings.
Now THERE’s a real journalist! When the top TV stations have the top political advisers and hacks pretending to give you unbiased news everyday, you have to wonder….
The best of news…..
Okay. I admit it. I gave myself a few more days of “rest” from writing, which is always a good thing to anyone who writes everyday I think. I want to thank the readers who sent prayers for my family during this last week: We are home now, and everything is pretty much back to normal except for lifestyle changes which have to be made.
To explain my panic, my husband has an inherited blood disorder called Protein S Deficiency Factor 5 Leiden: These are two separate issues:
Factor V Leiden thrombophilia is an inherited disorder of blood clotting. Factor V Leiden is the name of a specific gene mutation that results in thrombophilia, which is an increased tendency to form abnormal blood clots that can block blood vessels.
People with factor V Leiden thrombophilia have a higher than average risk of developing a type of blood clot called a deep venous thrombosis (DVT). DVTs occur most often in the legs, although they can also occur in other parts of the body, including the brain, eyes, liver, and kidneys. Factor V Leiden thrombophilia also increases the risk that clots will break away from their original site and travel through the bloodstream. These clots can lodge in the lungs, where they are known as pulmonary emboli. Although factor V Leiden thrombophilia increases the risk of blood clots, only about 10 percent of individuals with the factor V Leiden mutation ever develop abnormal clots
Okay…so not so bad..BUT…he also has the only other blood clotting disorder called Protein S. Deficiency:
Protein S Deficiency (PSD) is a rare blood disorder that affects just a few thousand people worldwide. It is one of several known risk factors for thrombophilia and can increase the risk of blood clots such as Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and Pulmonary Embolism (PE).
AND he has lived with a blood clot in his leg..(one of the many he has had) for over four years, which we were warned could break away any time. Add to that, is the fact that he is allergic to Kumindin, and had to experiment with other blood thinners. We never know when something might happen. He is on one of the many blood thinners that you see on TV everyday…you know, the ones where you could DIE any second so please contact our lawyers types?
The good news: He is okay now, and besides a lot of bad hospital food, he has found out he cannot drink his favorite Mountain Dew anymore, or indulge in his other daily favorite vice…Twinkies.
So—small a sacrifice..in the scheme of the universe–it means–Your prayers worked! Thank you! Not that this couldn’t happen again in the future, it’s just nice to know, he’s okay for now.
On another short note: I have to tell a few stories from the hospital. (Of course I do.)
I was in the hospital room when one of the technicians came rolling in with a big machine to do an ultrasound on the blood vessels to his brain. As I watched in amazement at the huge monitor, I asked her how long it took to learn to operate the machine:
“A year and a half,” she said. “but you must have a Bachelor’s Degree first.”
As we got to talking I found out she was from Iran.
“You know,” I said, “People all over the world think Americans are fat and lazy…but..we are NOT lazy.”
“Yes, I know that.” She said. She then told me how people in Iran, worked until early afternoon than took long afternoon breaks..and some of them would go back to work later, but their work days were short.
“Is it true about the people?” I asked.” “Do they agree with the Mullahs?”
“Right” I said. “Obama was no help.”
She shook her head, sadly, in agreement.
And then she talked about how hard she had to work–she had two jobs. She worked at a bank part-time and at the hospital part- time. She and her husband, who was from Mexico, were struggling, and they had a little boy.
His parents were doctors in Mexico, but he did not follow in their footsteps…he was home. Perhaps unemployed, but she didn’t say. She was so proud of him because he just lost 40 pounds when he found out he was a diabetic by exercising. She wanted to exercise with him, but just could not find the time.
The reason I bring this up, is that I thought it strange that with all her education, the hospital had her on part- time. The hospital did….as a whole… seem empty.
Still worrying about my husband, I had to come home to feed the dogs that first night. After that was done, I went to my neighbor’s house to ask if she could give me a lift to my husband’s car, which he had left at work. My neighbor is in her early sixties, and she works at the local church, so I knew she would help.
In her living room was her grandson, who was graduating from Law school. The money he owned from law school was $200,0000, and he was trying to figure out how he was going to pay it off while setting up a house and starting his new job, and he couldn’t see how he was going to do it.
He expects to make $300,000 a year—– someday.
And I can’t help but wonder, will that day come? Or, will we fat and lazy Americans become more like Iran, and Europe, and work part-time, making less and less, and doing with less and less?
Some say, someday—- is already here.
So, what did I learn from the last week?
Stay out of hospitals…and someone please tell Obama: Fox News is being shown in the ER. All…Day….long! :)
