Is it my imagination or is the news getting recycled?
Suddenly missing Nixon tapes surface. Former president recalling an assassination attempt that happened nearly 40 years ago. Civil rights marches that haven't been seen since the 60s. Did somebody reset the Delorian time settings Marty?
Good is becoming bad and bad good. Hannah Montana doing a dirty dancing bit. Enough to have old Walt Disney spinning in his grave. But then again who didn't have the hots for Annette, but I digress.
Where was I? Back to the regurgitated news that's been chewed up swallowed and analyzed to death only to be served up on our viewing plates cold. Tell us something we don't know. Area 51 again? Yeah yeah we know and there wasn't any aliens mucking about, but where else are you going to test planes at mock 1 or 2 without the Ruskies snooping? Finally fess up to the fact that we overthrew the elected leader of Iran back in the 50s because he was leaning socialist and just might have nationalized the oil fields?
Next thing you know they'll have found the whereabouts of Judge Crater or the body of Jimmy Hoffa. Seems anything is fair game as long as it detracts from the fact that our government is doing absolutely nothing about anything. Naming a post office or installing another federal judge may sound like you did something but to us it doesn't really count. Nothing on the event calendar you say then just throw in another awards ceremony. That's good for at least a day and a half's news cycle. And not to dishonor our military folk but have you ever noticed that so many receive a metal for screwing up? They get captured by the enemy after making a wrong turn on the road, have to be rescued and they're considered a hero? No I'll tell you who the real heros are. They're the ones who did their jobs and came home who are now jobless and without a home and who can't medical help when they need it. These are the guys who did three four and even five tours of duty in a god forsaken desert yet their reward is little more than lip service and not a bright future.
But yet again I digress. Let's have another round. Beers? No talks. Talks about what to do about Syria. Let's get this right. (Wait for it this gets snarkier). We'll hold high level talks with our allies where we can discuss our options. All options are on the table and a plan of action must be forged out. Alternative plans must be taken into consideration and additional channels of communication must be kept open. All resources must be put in play. A coalition must be formed and consensus reached. No clear evidence has been established. High ranking members of an international team are set to hold talks yet that has been delayed. The current situation has caused the markets to tumble (hope you bought your hedge insurance) and crude prices to skyrocket (so much for the long labor day outings) .
Okay okay I'll step off the ivory flakes box. You can get back to shopping. Nothing to see here.
