Things I Know

  • President Obama says his economic recovery plan will create or save at least three-million jobs.  That’s $275,000 per job.  If they make the transaction non-taxable, I’ll sell them my job for $225,000.  Then they can give it to somebody else.  I’m sure a lot of other people are willing to do the same.  That’s almost a twenty percent discount.  Think of all the money they’ll save if they do that.

  • All men are NOT interested in only one thing.  There are a few of us who don’t give a dam about football.    So I won’t be buying an enormous and expensive flat-screen TV on which to watch the Super Bowl.  Even if I bought such a TV, I wouldn’t be watching the Super Bowl.

  • There were more things I want, but can’t afford in Scottsdale AZ in January than anyplace else on earth.  They were being sold at the Barrett-Jackson collectible car auction.

  • On ABC radio the night before the Presidential inauguration, an announcer said, “The first African American” will be inaugurated as President tomorrow.  I know what he meant, and Barack Obama’s inauguration does break a barrier that deserves breaking.  But the announcer didn’t say what he meant, did he?  I don’t think anyone knows for sure who the first African American was.  Did the Spanish bring Africans to Florida when exploring and founding St. Augustine in the 1560’s?  Did the British bring the first African to Jamestown in the early 1600’s?  Or to be the first African American, did we have to wait until the United States were formed?
