Nobody's Opinion

Can We Have a Promise Zone Where Politicians Can Promise to Go Away?

Nobody Rants on a Saturday

I have been really out of it since last Monday, it seems I caught the usual “flu” of the season, and I can tell you the exact moment…I was coming out of the bathroom at my local Wal-Mart, the one that I HATE to shop at but have to due to “lack of competition.”  They are the only place that sells certain items…anyway, I had washed my hands, put on anti-bacterial hand lotion, stepped out into the store, and then I heard it: the deadly cough…from a kid. Right there in front of me.Promise Zone Map

“Oh boy, I’m doomed.” I thought, and sure enough —while going out to pick up the mail in minus 3 below zero a few days later, it didn’t take long for the sore throat to start. And what they are saying is right: the new bugs are oblivious to everything: It didn’t matter what I took from my medicine cabinet, nothing worked.  The only thing that worked was daily trips trapped in a steam filled bathroom, thanking god that I had hot water…

And speaking of hot water, I don’t think I ever remember a town’s water supply being contaminated so badly that 300,000 people are told not to touch it, do you? Can you imagine not being able to wash your face, your hair, your teeth, or cook as the poor people of West Virginia? And yet, have you noticed, whole towns can be wiped off the map by tornadoes or floods, or spilled chemical disasters, and what does the media repeat over and over and over?

The latest political scandal…whatever it is. As if, politics are the most important thing in the country. And last week it was Chris Christie’s email.  It’s no secret that Chris Christie wants the Republican nomination. He showed that at the last Republican convention down in Florida, when he gave a big speech about himself instead of Mitt Romney. As I remember, he even looked very pissed at Romney that night, probably for not picking him to be his VP. And so everyone remembers Christie gawking over Obama right before the elections, and his obsequious behavior to Obama after that hurt Romney really bad. He knew it, and really didn’t care.Chris Christie

He is vindictive…no doubt about it. He’s as ruthless as they come.  I don’t buy this “big heart” he puts on. Bill Clinton was good at that too.

Beware of puppy dog faces.

Nevertheless, Hillary is such a weak candidate, and Chris is about as big as a liberal as she is…they have to get rid of him early. Watch for some more nasty attacks on the big “bully”. Christie’s apology speech was much too long, and that was a stupid political move on his part, but so typical of egotistical politicians..

And speaking of egotistical politicians, since I was in bed last week, I even watched the Obama “promise Zones” speech, and I got something very different from everybody else. What I heard is that Obama is giving money to poor Hispanics and future democratic voters in economic zones (he left out Detroit…why?) where big corporations will be needing future workers, and he is going to make sure kids get government care from birth if necessary.  The Promise Zone is early childhood state nanny help. That’s what I heard. Just more of the agenda that Hillary wanted on the plate since she stated it in “It Takes a Village.” Hillary stated in that book that she thinks the state can take care of the babies in the first year.

Don’t believe me? Read it.

And there he was, stating that we are in a recovery.  Amazing.Promise Zone Speech

Just his week in St. Louis, the last Macy’s North of St. Louis closed down.  Eight thousand jobs were lost. The mall it was attached to died in 2009, so it’s a wonder it held on that long. For every ‘job’ created, five are lost.

By the way, did ANYBODY hear how great the retail sales were during Christmas?

I never did.

What kind of idiots base their GDP on how much people spend?

Anyway, the good news is, I did not cough ONCE while typing this! The old cantankerous woman is coming back!

If I seem a little scattered in the next few days, blame it on the Nyquil that isn’t working.

Any home remedies on “how to kick the flu in less than 3 days” would be really appreciated. (It’s now been 6 days, I’m ready.)

And…thanks!

  2. You must have been REALLY sick if you actually listened to an Obama speech! I’ve had pretty good luck with Zi-Cam. It won’t stop a cold or the flu, but it seems to limit their progress and duration. When someone coughs in my face like that, I run right home and squirt some Zi-Cam down my throat.

  3. Call me paranoid, but an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
    You were on the right track with hand sanitizer, add a particle mask and glasses to increase your defense against airborne virus when in crowds.
    It doesn’t look stylish, but most people that see you are Nobody’s too. 😉
