News Lube

Yes– I said NEWS LUBE instead of NEWS PERUSE.


Because things are getting grimier and grimier everyday. I keep reminding my 12 year old daughter that AMERICAN HISTORY is soooo being made during her adolescent life. First we elect the United States first black president, then a Gulf Oil Rig explodes and one of our wars generals has loose staff lips that could sink ships. Can you imagine how this is going to read 20-30 years from now in history books….that is assuming TEXAS doesn’t attempt to rewrite all of our countrys History.

That’s right — History rewrites by folks with no literal insight is also in progress in the state of Texas with hopes to influence other ISD school books around the world. California has already declined on utilizing any such re-written versions. I hope their decision is catchy.

Health Care issues are also taking shape through reform
The President addressed most concerns [6-22] — w/o alarm.

General Stanley McChrystal has been dressed down and sent home.
History will recall him as the man who bad mouthed “the leaders” zone.
(shaking my head) Mm-Mm-Mm…what went wrong?

BP and TRANS OCEAN are surely not happy today
about the black dude who’s been interviewing about their “safety astray”.

When the ‘fail safe’ first blew, it took 11 with
Then today we lost 2 more — God forbid.

They were trying to help – it’s definitely shifty and risky work —
In an effort to keep off shore drilling alive – many more are bound to get hurt.

It’s a greasy situation. Todays NEWS is untimely, grimey and bold.
In an effort to exhibit a silver lining — what’s up on the production of clean coal? 🙂

America: The Story of US

Did you catch The HISTORY CHANNEL last night? “AMERICA: The Story of US” If you didn’t — don’t worry, the same episode: “Civil War” will air again on May 12th @ 8/7c and a new episode: “Cities” will air on May 19th @ 8/7c.

I caught the late night re-run of the broadcasted show;
The CIVIL WAR was bizarre and both sides went ‘for broke’.

If you missed the first broadcast day – take heart it’s coming on again
The History Channels reflective panel — opens up @ our countrys begin…

Fighting “within the house” doesn’t make us look any more “functional” or smarter,
May outside forces observe: United Blood will always be thicker than water.

I’m digging the Historical recap of the haps – so far,
Finally a show – where our ancestors are “the star”.

AMERICA: The Story of Us airs May 12th @ 8/7c on The History Channel
