Let The Joke Continue

During the White House Correspondents Dinner of 04 30 11, President Zippo took the opportunity to make jokes "after weeks of attacks" from would be republican presidential challenger, Donald Trump, that questioned Zippo's citizenship and resultant legitimacy to hold the office of president. His Zipness began his evening's monologue with the phrase, "My fellow Americans." Although Zippie's barbs were directed at Trump, who was in attendance at the "gala dinner," I suppose one could easily infer that the jabs were equally directed at the numerous (confirmed and confident) American citizens who are also suspicious of Zippie's credentials.

The Big Z probably assumes a tad more license to ridicule after the release of what is touted to be his official State Of Hawaii long form certificate of live birth. (I personally belong to the group of "birthers" who subscribe to the belief that Stanley Dunham did not give birth to any children who lived.) After that certificate was made public, Trump immediately jumped from the birther train of thought to the believer train... claiming credit for the document's long awaited journey to daylight. I personally am more suspicious of his legitimacy now, than previously, since it took only four years for the certificate to break the surface from the depths of darkness. ("his legitimacy"... I made a funny)

But, just as Nero fiddled while his empire burned, Zero entertains his media admirers while his "fellow Americans" are suffering with even higher gasoline and food prices.

While various sources pump the schmooze about Middle-East instability and / or the fears of speculators driving the price of oil through the roof, the New York Times reported ExxonMobil has posted a first quarter jump of 69% in profits. That's 10.7 BILLION dollars. Up from the previous quarter's pittance of 6.3 BILLION dollars. (it must suck to be them!!!) Obviously the big bucks we are paying at the pumps aren't going to help stabilize tensions or soothe those fears. As I said in my last post; it's called G R E E D folks.

Among shocking prices at the grocery check-out, I noted a 12 oz. container of cherry tomatoes at four dollars and eighty-nine cents. I'm talking about almost $5.00 for less than a pound of miniatures. My family is no longer treating me as being brain damaged since I was the one who insisted we buy and plant thirty two tomato plants in the garden a few week back. Further, I can now understand the full social impact of laws designed to shut down hobby / personal gardens. And they ARE NOT intended to protect ANYONE.

If you haven't already, you better get into the prepper mind-set. I can only pray you still have time. Time is not on our side.
