Let’s Call It The United States Of Fantasyland

When I posted my last entry, I decided to read some other recent commentary.

I'll never do that again.

Did you know there are a lot of idiots on Vox?

We've had baby Boomers, Gen X and Gen Y,.. the latest is Gen Whacked!

One girl, had this to say about watching the inauguration:

We all woke up so early that day,

I think we were just so excited.

Put on So we sat there,


they made some tea,

I made some coffee

and we sat there


watching cnn news and abcnews for hours.

I think as excited as we all were,

we were a littl emotional, and a little nervous.


Then the moment came,

with a little humor.

It was time to welcome in our new president,


and you could tell

that it wasn't just the US that was watching,

it was the world.

She didn't put it in the form of a poem, I did that, but I think it helped, don't you?

Another young boy was complaining about Chicago's power plants, He began by saying that it was colder than it's ever been in his 22 years, -30 degrees! That's cold!

That also wasn't his main concern. He was distraught about the pollution the plants emit. It didn't occur to him that global warming might be the solution!?

No, he accuses Mayor Daley of caring more about bringing the Olympics to Chicago, and here's what he wants the people's mayor to do:

Since ending the suffering of thousands upon thousands of people obviously doesn’t appeal to you, how about this: If you close the plants and begin using other forms of renewable energy instead, you may end up not only with the Olympics, but with your face plastered on the cover of national magazines from Newsweek to Time.  Imagine that.

Yep, imagine that! Of course he'll be competing with Obama for those covers, and being that it's Daley, I think it more likely that his face will be plastered on Wanted Posters first.

Now I hate to nitpick with the young who know more and know it all better, but shouldn't the mayor begin using the "other forms of renewable energy" (as opposed to coal, I presume) -before- he closes the plants? Otherwise, might those thousands upon thousands who are suffering so horribly from air pollution suffer a little bit more from having cold cereal at a -30 room temperature?

Although granted, their suffering would be a LOT shorter!

Now I know, our lad wants the switch to be simultaneous, I'm just bustin' his chops – because I can't bust his jaw. I mean:

If he wants simultaneous,

simultaneous it will be.

But when it happens

Roundabout 2103

Daley will be dust

And so will he

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

    Because it wasn't safe for him to do it himself?
