Lest I be Considered Humorless: Yes, most of my opinions are serious and rather gloomy BUT have no fear I DO have a sense of humor!

In case you have not noticed the collection of Republicans vying for the presidency, arguably the most powerful position in the world, or just simply Republicans are nincompoops, idiots, morons and dumbed down Know Nothings. Let me give you some examples which represent that fact and are quite funny INDEED. Well, it had me laughing with incredulity anyway:

Rick Perry after the last debate was showering effervescent praise on our Founders who as he stated fought so hard for freedom in the 16th CENTURY. Okay so he was a mere 200 years off. What's a few years? After all our Founders WERE men of the Enlightenment preceded by the Renaissance weren't they? Considering the sands of time, I guess he was close.

Michele Bachmann TRIED to show how smart she was by using the word HEINOUS except it came out Hein-Y-ous. Heinyous, yes we get it, Michelle, I guess it’s not as bad as saying Concord, New Hampshire where she so assuredly thought the American Revolution began. This was BIG news for those of us living near Concord, MASSACHUSETTS. Eh, what's a few miles. Maybe geography AND history are not Michelle's strong suit. Who needs to know where the American Revolutionary War began when one was allegedly a tax attorney, small business woman and is a Congressional Rep?

The best screw up came when a Florida GOP Rep. Brad Drake said he wanted to bring back the electric chair and firing squads to execute criminals because lethal injection is just too darn humane. As Drake said “In the words of Humphrey Bogart, ‘Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn.' I'm so tired of being humane ...".

You know Humphrey Bogart of "Gone with the Wind" fame; that famous quote a sixth grader might know was uttered by Clark Gable and after all he thought of that when someone at the "Waffle House" -- a restaurant like IHOP -- said that profundity.

So big deal, Clark Gable, Humphrey Bogart who cares? At least we have to be happy he didn't say Marilyn Monroe! GENIUSES all!
Occupy Wall Street STILL Occupying Wall Street: Mayor Bloomberg stopped the removal by police of the Occupy Wall Street demonstrators shortly before it was supposed to begin today, Friday, October 14, averting a feared clash between the police and demonstrators who are protesting a fraudulent and corrupt Wall Street.

Smart move! Throwing police into an Occupy Wall Street crowd at 7:00 a.m. on a Friday morning when everyone is tuned into The Today Show is NOT a smart thing to do. It is a non violent crowd dedicated to peaceful civil disobedience. It is the ONLY kind of protest that we have seen historically to work ESPECIALLY in a 24/7 media, video cell phones and other recording devices which will capture the entire thing. It serves only to be an advocate for our cause.

FINALLY our sleeping giant has awoken will and is giving the Republican (and some Democrats too) obstructionist politically malevolent Congressional "representatives" a run for their money (forgive the pun).

This has shed light on the most rancid time I have ever experienced in my decades of watching the American political landscape. It is not a landscape it is a trash heap. Wall Street, the banks, Geithner, Summers and their ilk wielding the batons of power and ALL those who think they can get away with the fraudulent theft of millions of Main Street money while they live like kings with their bailout and bonuses of taxpayer money are having a RUDE awakening.

I think too our president who was put into the oval office by people like me sees now we CANNOT be taken for granted. I believe the sleeping giant is arising from his slumber -- I HOPE -- as Blankfein, Dimon, Goldman Sachs, City Bank, Merrill Lynch and the rest of those bloated gluttons infected with corporate gout feel a little chill running through their greedy bodies.

The Cretans of Wall Street MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE, investigated, regulated to within an inch of their life, indicted, tried by a jury -- HOPEFULLY -- convicted and sent to jail while their posterity pays BILLIONS. This must NEVER EVER happen again or our capitalist system which I support and the nation I love with it will end up in the trash bin of history!
