If I had to place a bet I would say most parents are against Obama’s idea of lengthening the amount of time kids go to school. I believe parents today are too coddling. I would also bet that some kids spend more time at football practice/game time then doing math or english in a week. Sorry, I’m one of those people that think scholastics are more important than sports.

I read that kids in other countries go to school 25 to 30% longer then the U.S. I’m not saying that’s all kids should do is school but even just adding a 1/2 hour a day and maybe cutting off a couple weeks of summer vacation may help.

“Our school calendar is based upon the agrarian economy and not too many of our kids are working the fields today,” said Education Secretary Arne Duncan in a recent interview with the Associated Press.

So lets see what you think-


It’s Black and White

Are some people racist of an African American president…President Carter thinks so. Here is what he said-

“I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man, that he’s African American. I live in the South, and I’ve seen the South come a long way and I’ve seen the rest of the country that shared the South’s attitude toward minority groups at that time … and I think it’s bubbled up to the surface, because of a belief among many white people, not just in the South but around the country, that African Americans are not qualified to lead this great country.” 

The age old question

I will be jet skiing for the next couple of days but didn’t want to leave you hanging too long so I thought I would do a poll…I think people like polls. With this poll you may need an extra day to think about it and then come back to it…that’s how deep this one is!! This topic has been talked about for centuries; I’m sure it has broken up marriages & friendships. It drives some people just plain crazy. OK…here it goes-



Naked Ladies go away

Taken from California State University

Taken from California State University

I am not a single woman but whenever I see a naked lady mudflap on some moron’s truck I always say “If I were single I would never date a man that owns those degrading things”. I don’t get it; what kind of person buys these. I would think if you were single and were looking to date someone you would know by owning these god awful things that no decent woman would be interested in you. If you are married or dating I’m surprised the woman puts up with them…I would have to guess she is timid.  Either way, in my eyes, you are a jerk. Time to grow up and act your age not your shoe size (I still love saying that…it worked when I was 5 and it still does).  I think Arizona was wrong…the Arizona House rejected a bill that would have banned mudflaps with “images that are obscene or hateful.”

Let’s all stop the next generation and get rid of all those mudflaps today!! Seriously…why do you want them? Do you not realize your level of respect reaches under the ground with the ownership of them.

Oh, and I also don’t think I could date anyone who wears croc’s or socks with sandals.

Yellow delanie?

I had a successful San Francisco trip; Uncle Hal is now at peace in the San Francisco Bay.

We decided to drive this trip as to save money with San Diego only being about 7 hours from San Fran. I don’t mind road trips as long as I don’t hit traffic. Sometimes by the time you drive to the airport, arrive early and go through all the hassle, driving is not that bad. Plus my last flight to SF the plane was delayed and they had my luggage on the wrong plane so it actually was probably the same amount of time. Then in this week’s PARADE I read in Europe they now allow passengers to make in –flight cell phone calls. If this happens in the U.S I will be driving EVERYWHERE! I cannot fathom sitting next to some person having an obnoxious call. You know air rage will become the rage. I can see allowing texting but I’m sorry, there is absolutely no reason you have to talk on your phone while flying…no reason! Are Bose headphones absolutely soundproof? Tell me now so I can buy stock in the company.

Does anyone know what delanie is? As I was listening to Cat Stevens this road trip (he is definitely a road trip musician) I was listening to Into White (a song I have heard many times) and the line “yellow delanie would sleep well at night” and I was like “hmmmm…what is delanie”.  Why it took me over a 100 times of listening to question it…I guess I will chalk that up to the mindset on road trips.

Now back to cell phone usage on planes…what do you think?

Octo NO

I just read that Octomom’s reality show will start filming September 1st….damn! We all have to unite and not watch so the show is taken off the air…that is all I will say about this woman I do not like.

You either love them or hate them

Rumor has it that Crocs…those awful looking shoes, are finally on their way out. I have never been a fan of these odd looking things they call “shoes”. Now sometimes I will give up a good fashion look for comfort but not when it comes to Crocs. I am a huge fan of the Fit Flop and I admit it’s not the most fashionable shoe but it is very comfortable. The Croc is just stupid looking…but that is just my humble opinion.

So what do you think about the Croc-
