For Sale, 535 Weasels.

"Stand with anybody that stands RIGHT. Stand with him while he is right and PART with him when he goes wrong."--Abraham Lincoln The big bailout bill went down in flames today. When we needed leaders, all we could muster was petty politicians. Disgusting. My little sidekick Aiden and I spent the day goofing around. He is out of school for three weeks, because of a year-around school schedule, so we had lunch and then went to see the movie Igor. We had a great time. This is the second time in three days that I've seen Igor. The lovely Mrs. Sneed and I took Noah on Saturday. The things you have to do for grandkids. Sheesh! Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky

I like how sometimes, when I have lucky timing, I get to read your original post and then the re-issued post :)

Merle, will you take me for Igor?

Reya Mellicker said...

Your grandparenting is truly generous. Sometimes I feel a little sad that I don't have grandkids, but then I remember I don't ever have to see Igor. Whew!!

I agree with you completely about the House politicians. What the hell are they thinking?

That's a whole lotta Igor!

I don't know what to think about the bailout's failure. I suppose we have to do something, but I wasn't crazy about dumping taxpayer money into hole dug by a bunch of greedy investors and fund managers.

Karen said...

I want to go to Igor too, Merle!

(BTW, you haven't lived until you've seen Alvin and the Chipmunks 10 times in a row with your child...)

Here you've gone and seen Igor two times, and I've never even heard of it!!

The bailout is so fraught with problematic aspects to it, I honestly don't know what to think. I watched the interviews on the breakfast shows this morning, and according to some, it's all Nancy Pelosi's fault.

I want to see igor!!!

Coffee Messiah said...

Wow, good 4 U, although I too haven't heard of Igor the Movie.

I despise the idea of only 2 political groups, but always find it amusing, although all complicit in what always seems to happen in losing our tax dollars, jobs etc, that the main group that has caused most of these messes, always blames the other.

Grrrrrrr.

Nice previous posts too, although, I was sad to see (like Books and Movies) you used a quote attributed to me, without asking. ; (

Cheers from indy-anna ; )
