injaynesworld “A Sabbatical Is In Order…”

It may be a day, a week, or…

Between a heavy workload at the moment and all that’s involved in preparing for my big move to my little house, I’m needing to spend more time in the real world as opposed to the virtual one right now.

So I’ll be around, but less for a while.

This week the fabricated political battle over the debt ceiling continued to dominate the airwaves.   The truth is we don’t have a debt crisis, we have a revenue crisis, so don’t forget who the bad guys are.

And let’s also not forget the amazing things America can accomplish if we can ever put country ahead of political party again.

Have a lovely week…

injaynesworld it's the "Sunday Recap..."

Former First Lady Betty Ford died Friday at the age of 93.  

Known for being pro-choice and speaking out for women’s equality, often to the chagrin of the husband who adored her, she was a classy lady and a just a great all-around broad in the best sense.  I actually voted for Gerald Ford because I liked Betty so much.   Now I’m nostalgic for both of them. 


And in case you missed it amidst the 24 hour coverage ad nauseum of Casey Anthony  – there was another Exxon oil spill this week, this time in the Yellowstone River 

A 12-inch pipeline ruptured on Friday dumping 42,000 of crude oil into the flood-swollen river which has now befouled farm land, water wells, and is threatening wildlife. 


And next time you think the oil companies are not in cahoots with the auto industry, think about this…


More than a little irony…

Among those tweeting their outrage over the Casey Anthony verdict this week was none other than Kim Kardashian...

... whose father, the late defense attorney Robert Kardashian, got O.J. Simpson off the hook.


You bang it, you buy it…

A U.S. soldier was just “being all that he could be…” when he broke into an adult novelty store to find a friend.  Captain Little Jim (his real name) was discovered by police officers in a closet attempting to have sex with a blow-up doll.

The manager of the shop lamented, “It’s sad.  Our stuff is really reasonably priced.”

In the soldier’s defense, the store was closed and a man has needs. 


Which reminds me of one of my all-time favorite movies, “Lars and The Real Girl.”

injaynesworld it's the "Sunday Recap..."

This week we bid adieu to the Glenn Beck Show.

Yes, the man Stephen Colbert called “Satan’s mentally challenged younger brother” made his final appearance as host of his own show on Faux TV.  Let’s wander down memory lane for some of Beck’s finer moments.

“Don’t let anyone tell you what the truth is.  Not even me.”  They’re watching Faux, Glenn, so there’s little danger of that.

"When I see a 9/11 victim family on television, I'm just like, 'Oh, shut up.'  I'm so sick of them because they're always complaining."  Yeah.  There's just no pleasing some people.

“The most used phrase in my administration if I were to be President would be 'What the hell do you mean we're out of missiles?’”  There are those fine Christian values.

On why people in California lost their homes in forest fires:  “I think there is a handful of people who hate America. Unfortunately for them, a lot of them are losing their homes in a forest fire today.”  Yeah, and 9/11 was God’s payback for homosexuals.   You and Jerry Falwell -- separated at birth.

Finally, in what I can only assume was Beck’s attempt to one-up Kanye West:  “This president, I think, has exposed himself over and over again as a guy who has a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture… This guy is, I believe, a racist.”

Buh-bye, Glenn.  As they say, don’t let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya. 


Speaking of primates…

Thought to have escaped from Six Flags Great Adventure, a baboon had an adventure of his own while on the loose for three days in New Jersey.  Spotted several times crossing backyards, traveling down highways and even taking in the pleasures of a golf course, the baboon was finally tranquilized and captured.  Word has it they would have captured him sooner, but in several instances he was mistaken for Governor Chris Christie.

The baboon was not amused. 


Meanwhile, the Republicans continue to prove they have no interest whatsoever in seeing the economy recover any time soon…


Don’t you hate it when you’ve got nothing smaller than a $100 in your wallet?

On a campaign stop, a young boy offered Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney a $1 bill that he’d folded origami-style for good luck.  Wanting to give something back, Romney searched through his wallet, but could only find a $100 bill.  An aide handed him a dollar, but Romney kept digging and finally found a $5 dollar bill deep in the recesses of his billfold, proving that he really is one of us, after all – minus the $100 bill, of course. 


Just for laughs…

Doesn’t this just give the term “shower enclosure” a whole new meaning?


Have a wonderful 4th of July weekend and remember…

If you drink, don’t drive, and if you’re a moron, don’t barbecue.

Whatchu got to say?
