Some Random Thoughts

Once in a while you just hear stuff. On headline news or Today or you see it in the little blurps that show up on your server's hopme page under headlines. They can sound odd or rough or cruel or danmgerous and many of us take them right out of context -- because the little blurp (and I am intentionallyt using that term) takes them out of context. One example is today reading that Presidential Hopeful Romney says that he is not worried about the poor. WHAT???#@!!

If you reasd the aricle he esplains that there are systems in place to help the poor -- a safety net. If elected and he finds that net broken, he will repair it. He also says he is not concerned about the very rich, they can take care of themselves. His focus is the middle class. Now that sounds more reasonable.

Still, I wonder what he defines as "poor." In America. In 2012.

More thoughts:

Today we also are stepping up concern about Iran's nuclear capability and Israel's possible pre-emptive strike response. It makes we think about another situation in which a major power was concerned about the growing strength of another major power and decided to launch a pre-emptive strike of its own. They attacked Pearl Harbor, and that didn't tirn out too well for Japan. Just saying.

On justice: can't we leave that to the courts? In America an accused is innocent until proven guilty, yet under freedom of information, the accused's name is released to the media, where the same person is guiltyu until proven innocent and the damage done by the public opinion garnered in the case can damage that person for life even if they prove nto be innocent.

Thirdly, there is an ad on TV for Tums. Is your favorite food foghting you? Change your diet -- your body is trying to tell you something!

And finally, I leave you with this thought:
Remember, every silver lining has a cloud.

Th, Th, That's all. Folks!
