Dave's Wheel of News

This is where I cite numerous news stories, give you my opinion, then you click the "next blog" button out of sheer boredom. It's what I do when my creativity is not having a heavy flow day.

Katrina Aid From Cuba? Bush Says No Thanks

We're refusing aid from Cuba for the Katrina crisis. My question is, why the @#%& is that?

Closed circuit message to President Bush, former Clinton and Bush One... the cold war is over. The missile crisis was... what almost a half century ago? Let it go. I am sick of having to hide my cubans in secret luggage compartments when returning to the states.

Don't accept from China what you refuse to accept from Cuba. It just doesn't make good sense.


FEMA Dumb-Ass Quits, New Director Chosen

Mike Brown made the first smart decision of his tenure as director and resigned. The new guy is a former firefighter, has hurricane relief experience and was the head of the Dade County Florida emergency management office.

This is great news. Now, FEMA needs to come out from under the umbrella of homeland security and return as a cabinet position.

I also think I should be on the cabinet. I'd call out the other cabinet members everytime I sensed bullshit. I'd be a busy, busy man.


Not a news story, but that guy on the Subway commercial who sees a shooting star and wishes his hot girlfriend was a freakin' sandwich... is gay.


California Screamin'

A blackout today affecting more than 2 million people in California was caused by one person overloading one power line.

It's good that the entire power grid of one of the most densely populated areas in the world can be brought down by some jagoff who tried to use a toaster while the microwave was on.

Can we start using some of the goddamn 45 percent of my money that Uncle Sam takes on infrastructure? Please?


I grow weary from the sermonizing.

Cest la vie Dave. Not that anyone has to accept that things are this screwed up, but what ya gonna do? And who ya gonna do it to? I will share my new favorite quote:
"An ideal form of government is democracy tempered with assassination" *Voltaire*

Enjoy! :p

WTF?! If Cuba wants to give away money, I'll take it! (Hand up in the air waving...)

And dammit! It just doesn't seem fair that someone so perfectly in line to get fired has the option to quit. "Brownie, you're doing a heckuva job."

I just don't understand why we can't see the guy who cut the wrong wire in L.A. on a news clip ~ perhaps with Bush telling him he's done a helluva job.
Now THAT would be perfectly timed entertainment.

And you're right about not accepting Cuba's help. Unless of course, they were going to send us a bunch of stanky stogies. Then? No.

I'm with you Dave. I grow weary from ... well, just being Weary.

I wonder if everybody donated one hearing aid to Cape Canaveral if that would be enough power to get a rocket ship to the moon. Is anybody studying this?

FRITZ said...

Totally right on. WTF is up with California? L.A. goes OUT OF POWER? It's a good thing I'm not one of those 'the world is coming to an end' people. Because if I was, I would say:
The world is coming to an end.

Well, since the majority of U.S. debt is to Asian banks, it makes more sense to accept money from China.

With the amount of tv I watch I don't know how I've missed the subway commercial. But I've always thought the soda commercial where the car remote changes the car and the guy's friend seemed a little gay. I mean its still his friend, right? Sorry I can't be more specific. I've seen the commercial 5 dozen times, but I don't know what it's for.
