Something is very wrong with this picture

“Throw in a few billion here and a few billion there, and before you know it, you are talking about real money…” . I don’t recall who first coined that phrase, (I think it was in the late ’80s), but when I first heard it, it was Millions not Billions! (more…)

Greetings fellow citizens.

My name is Surface Earth.

I welcome you this evening to improve my life and my future income.

See, if you vote for me,

My ego will inflate,

My social circle will inflate,

And down the road,

I can make lots and lots of money from that,

And,

Have friends in power to give me tax cuts,

So even though shopping for food, gas, homes may be difficult for you,

I will be in good stead.

And oh yeah?

“God bless America!”

Colbert for President???

Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

CNN has some great articles today about Stephen Colbert and the bid for whichever party will take him for Presidential nominee. Personally, I’m in favor of the Colbert, Colbert and Only Colbert Party, then again, there is already the ColbertNation.

If you jump below you can find the CNN links & one of the CNN articles.

When searching for some more “news”, we came across some more fun sites about Colbert running in 2008:

Colbert announces bid for the White House

 

Colbert said Tuesday he will run for president in South Carolina.

WASHINGTON (CNN) — He hinted at a possible run for the White House on CNN’s Larry King last week, but Comedy Central host Stephen Colbert made it official Tuesday night: he’s jumping into the presidential race in his home state of South Carolina.

“After nearly 15 minutes of soul-searching, I have heard the call….I am hereby declaring that I will enter the presidential primary in my native South Carolina, running as a favorite son,” Colbert said on his show Tuesday night. “I defy any other candidate to pander more to the people of South Carolina — those beautiful, beautiful people.”

South Carolina is one of four lead-off primary states that will likely play a crucial role in determining the eventual nominee of both parties.

On Larry King last Thursday, Colbert laid out his potential electoral strategy, saying he’d see how he did in South Carolina before deciding to move on to other states.

“I think maybe there’s something I could offer the campaign on a state-by-state basis,” he said. “I would target a state individually…a test run.”

Colbert, author of the recently released “I Am America (And So Can You!),” also told King he’d seek to run as both a Democrat and Republican.

“I’d let the people decide what party I belong in,” he said. “I don’t dictate the people’s actions.”

In the interview with King, Colbert also brushed aside suggestions that it was a “cop out” to run in both parties, calling it instead courageous, because, “I could lose twice.”

In the slim chance that he wins a party’s nomination, Colbert said Tuesday he’d consider either Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, Russian President Vladimir Putin, or himself for a running mate.

“Colbert-Colbert — that’s a strong ticket,” he argued.

Question: Elections 2008, Presidential Candidates

Friday, June 15th, 2007

Why are we even considering electing anyone that is less than diplomatic?

Is it really funny that people we would choose to lead our country, affect not only our country’s, but other countries’ children and families…stoop to barbs?

See, I’m simply confused.

If you have something meritorious to say, can’t it stand on its own without sarcasm?

I want to elect a leader that does not resort to such games. Let him or her then serve as a leader, an example, to all the lower levels of government, and to our children, the future leaders.

Is that too simple?

The big joke now is the young lady who launched a song about Obama, or the two or three girls, of course, profit being the bottom line, to sell t-shirts. Suggestive songs. Now, how does that affect Obama as a presidential candidate? Good, bad? Worse or better than Mrs. Clinton’s insurmountable==wait, seemingly surmountable odds on overcoming the base suggestiveness or alleged infidelity.

Again, media coverage comes back to what can we get you on? embarrass you about? judge you about? what can we get off on while dissing you?

yes, we do this as a society, but do I want my LEADER doing this?

No. It’s that simple.
