“The Mitt Romney Paul Ryan pair
Together display a certain flair
Their preferred budget niche
Give tax cuts to the rich
But everyone else must beware!”

“I tried it a few times. All scores were under 10. I tried one more time and got a perfect score - a 0!

With a squint I compared each chip
Their order I would carefully flip
Time and again
I scored less than ten
So it's skill and not just a blip!”

“I thought that I'd never find anything associated with Rush entertaining. I was wrong. Companies leaving in droves, radio stations dropping him, conservative pundits blasting him, and Rush attempting to apologize. (I say "attempting to apologize" because Rush really has no idea how to apologize. He does that so badly!) This is VERY entertaining. This is a comeuppance that was long in coming and so well deserved.”

Please know the people in the area care and always will.”

“Congressman Anthony Weiner
Whose twittering should have been cleaner
When the truth comes to light
His errant acts might be slight
But his future is now looking much leaner.”

Huffington Post Readers' Picks: Best First Sentences

Huffington Post Readers' Picks: Best First Sentences

Commented May 26, 2011 at 12:58:08 in Books

“Not the opening sentence, but the opening paragraph of Shirley Jackson's "The Haunting of Hill House":
"No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality; even larks and katydids are supposed, by some, to dream. Hill house, not sane, stood by itself against its hills, holding darkness within; it had stood so for 80 years and might for 80 more. Within, walls continued upright, bricks met neatly, floors were firm, and doors sensibly shut; silence lay steadily against the wood and stone of Hill House, and whatever walked there, walked alone."”

eetwi on May 26, 2011 at 13:06:34

“The whole first paragraph works so beautifully, but I like to separate the first sentence (even the first clause) because, on its own, it says something pretty profound about the nature of consciousness itself.”
House GOP Seeks Big Cuts To FDA, Food Safety Inspectors

House GOP Seeks Big Cuts To FDA, Food Safety Inspectors

Commented May 24, 2011 at 15:58:46 in Politics

“What the Republicans are saying to the public is:
1) We don't care if you get sick from unsafe food.
2) Food inspectors cost money and food found unsafe would lower the profits of farmers, companies, etc. and we can't have that because we (the GOP) receive a lot of $$ from them.
3) If you do get sick, it is your responsibility to pay your own medical expenses. (Hopefully, you have health insurance, but if you don't we're not paying for that either.)”

consultingpbh on May 24, 2011 at 17:37:18

“No major food retailer relies on the FDA or the USDA. Like Costco, WalMart, Kroeger etc. they require Independent audits for a supplier to get on an approved vendor list. Nobody sees an FDA or USDA stamp of approval as having any value.

“Let’s see…
- A large house, with very high walls, topped with barbed wire…
- This house is much larger and much more expensive than every other house in that community. That makes it stand out even more.
- This much larger, much more expensive house has no phone or Internet access.
- Unlike everyone else in this community, those in this very large house do not put out their garbage so that it can be collected. They burn their garbage.
- Many in this community are retired military officers – who (if they were competent when they were in the military) would at least wonder about that very large house, with the very high walls, and barbed wire, and no phone lines, and burnt garbage.
- Terrorists have been known to hide and get caught in Pakistan.
- Bin Laden had lived in that house for years.

It is beyond belief that Bin Laden had no help, and that nobody in Pakistan knew that Bin Laden was living and hiding there. Everything about that house and the people who lived there but never was seen outside that house, made it stick out.”

“3 cheers for the brave Navy SEALS!

For Osama Bin Laden… I have not one iota of sympathy. He was not a “Head of State”. The US policy against assassination does not include him. He was a terrorist, and the leader and founder of the Al Qaeda terrorist group, and someone who felt that civilians, including women and children, were legitimate targets. It does not bother me in the least that he was shot and killed.

You can call it justice or retribution or vengeance. He deserved what he got.”

Osama Bin Laden Dead, Obama Announces

Commented May 2, 2011 at 06:20:09 in World

“At last!

I have many memories relating to September 11th, 2001.

On September 10th I was flying home. As the plane approached Newark Airport, I saw the familiar sight of the World Trade Center. Little did I know that that would be the last time I would see that building.

On September 11th I was playing in a golf outing. On the drive to the course I heard about a plane crashing into the WTC. Before I reached the golf course I heard about the second plane, and knew that it was terrorism – not accidents. Another attendee, an FBI agent, was paged and had to leave. The TV in the pro shop was tuned to CNN, and we could see the towers burning and then collapsing. Another attendee was on her cell phone a good part of the time. She worked in the WTC and was concerned about her co-workers. From the golf course, we could see the smoke coming from the burning WTC. I remember nothing about the golf course or how I played.

I remember going to work on September 12th and hearing that a co-worker died on September 11th. He was on flight 93. I can’t think about September 11th without thinking of him.

And now I will remember May 1st.”
