The Noise Machine (06/08/10)

Keeps going and going and going.....


Can you dumb it down a little? (We've got to hit our phony baloney targets)


Signs of a recession. Discount retailers are booming.


Not ALL of the airlines are hurting. Emirates has the absolute BEST flight attendant's uniforms. They also have great customer service. (Are you paying attention US Airline Industry?)


Potential bad news for Sam Houston Race Park. If this happens, my guess is it spells the end of horse racing in Houston. (If you know my proclivities then you know my position on this)


The German Government, learning from the mistakes of the United States. Go figure.


Maybe it's just me, but "I don't care how good/bad they are I'm agin' em" doesn't seem like a viable political philosophy.


Oh Noz!!! Let's have Council meetings and discuss this tragedy... Oh, wait. This is a private entity taking the necessary steps to weather a recession. Carry on.


For every action, There is an equal and opposite reaction. Shut down the engine of the economy = lost jobs.


I'm not sure Bill White had thought this line of attack all the way through. He spent an large amount of time out in the hinterlands campaigning during his last year as the Houston Mayor.


I give you, today's "It's the end of Democracy as we know it!" moment courtesy of The MSM and InterLeft. Horrors!!


Oh yeah, Next years speaker's race could be a little interesting. Or it could not. (One thing's for sure, politicos will care about it a lot more than the general public, thus convincing themselves that they're more in tune with the world. Zzzzzzz.)


Are "Tenthers" the new "Truthers" Or the new "Tea-baggers?" More importantly, are we now doomed to have every political movement defined with the suffix "-ers"? (Much like lazy journos slap "-gate" to the back of any political scandal to avoid having to do anything remotely creative.)


And finally.....


Turn off the oil. Forgetting, of course, that North East winters are cold and Texas summers are hot. (And that most modern medical advances involve petroleum based products.) My simple solution is this: Much like with the "tax more" crowd being able to write a check to the treasury if they so desire (although they never do), if you don't want to consume oil products then don't. More for me.)

    Heh, interestingly, there's never as much horror when it's Move On or SEIU or ACORN or even John Thornton throwing money around to push political agendas.

    Hey, don't leave out lazy bloggers like myself! :D

  2. Actually I'm wondering if that might be the big stick that the oil companies might still pull out. If they simply decide to sell their oil to the rest of the world instead of to us, How long would the current administration continue to exist? Would the electorate turn on Obama and force him from office?

    Maybe not, but it is a refreshing change from "I think all those b*st*ds in Congress suck... except for mine, of course!"
