Saturday Satire

This from the Lovely Loretta, a regular customer at the restaurant. "We used to have to pick between leaded and unleaded at the gas station. Now you pick between leaded and unleaded at Toys r Us."

Today is World Aids Day. I am fascinated by the approach to AIDS. People who contract cancer through smoking are criticized for their behavior and are lectured about the evils of smoking. People who contract AIDS through drug use or homosexual sex are pitied because they have been stricken by this disease. Why aren't they told to change their behavior? Nooooo, they would be too judgemental, that would be denying them their right to deviancy.

As long as I mentioned smokers, why do people smoke in their cars, but keep the cigarette hanging outside the car when they aren't puffing on it? Does this mean it's OK to put smoke in your lungs, but you don't want it on your car windows?

Joe Biden, the famed plagiarist and minor Presidential candidate, has said that he will move to impeach George Bush if he bombs Iran without Congressional approval. Thanks, Joe. I already like the sound of "President Cheney". Cheney might consider bombing Congress without Iranian approval.

What's the difference between ignorance and apathy? I don't know and I don't care.

This week's Republican Presidential Candidate debate featured an appearance by an openly gay Hillary Clinton plant asking a question. So other than the guys on the stage, it was just like any Democratic event.

No word on whether the man holding a hostage at a Clinton campaign office in New Hampshire was also a plant. I will turn that one over to the conspiracy theorists.

There was a "news" item about Washington, DC and the rising AIDS rate in that city. Given the fact the federal government is based there, I can't believe that is "news". What next, a story about the high crime rate in DC?
