For those of you too smart to watch the SOTU last night, I surely hope you read Stephen Green’s Drunkblogging.
Biden and Boehner, it is rumored, have a standing bet on which one looks most like their replica at Madame Tussaud’s wax museum, assuming either one actually had one.
Every time, it’s a tie.
Making political speeches palatable since…uhhh…I don’t know, probably around 2002 or so.
Holy moly, did he claim to have cut the deficit again?
He does it every time and every time it’s an astounding lie ($1 trillion+/year deficit added to our debt), and every time nobody spends much time in pointing that out. Am I the only one who has a problem with that?
As an aside, scenes from my porch.
I live in a cheap place, the spot where I live has decent people, all 50+, single men who want the world to fuck off, the front apartments are more diverse. There’re the two 50+ guys who are hating life, the basset hound owner (barooooooooooo), the married tweaker couples and, of course, the cops. I don’t know any of them except one guy, I avoid the others.
So I overheard one of the tweaker women from up front, she had a kid taken from her years ago and just had her 3 year old almost 1 year old taken from her because, meth. She’s said before that she’s just wants to be a fuck-machine and hates having kids.
So I heard her on the phone, she wants her kids back, who she often calls stupid fucking bitches as she’s screaming at them, because she doesn’t get social security anymore and her kids are her income. She related how she’s been getting disability since she was 13 because she can’t emotionally handle other people. That’s when she went inside. I wish she had done so about 5 minutes earlier. I really didn’t want to hear that conversation, I sincerely hope she doesn’t get those poor kids back. The 3 year old, when she was two, was angry and cussed like a Moron. It was depressing to see.
