The Rudeness of Registries

On Father's Day and my birthday, I ask for two things: Breakfast in Bed, and the remote control. Anything else is a bonus. My oldest daughter and her husband bought me some Orioles gear (hat & shirt), a bag of chips, and a large glass mug, suitably engraved. I was very pleasantly surprised. My teenage son bought a USMC t-shirt (served in the 80s). Again, pleasantly surprised. For Christmas, my mother-in-law buys me a new hat. Each time, it's very nice, and I like it a lot. My wife asks me what I want. Then she gets it for me. Registries are gimmie-gimmie-gimmie lists. At our wedding nearly 30 years ago, we got plenty of practical stuff. But we were more interested in the presence of our friends and family. Not the presents. Grow up. You're not ten years old anymore.
"And they’re mostly in the suburbs and rural areas where there is virtually no crime and no murder." Think about that for just a moment, Moore. Or are you capable of rational, emotion-free thought?

"Narrowly tailored" and "fair"? Pick one. You can't have both. You either tailor it to suit individual needs (not fair) or make it "fair" (whatever in the world that means -- which will take away all tailoring, let alone the narrow kind).
Figure skater who made something of himself after the Olympics. A golfer who made more money as an architect than a golfer. Politicians who have incorporated SOLUTIONS into their work that have actually made the country a better place. Kid Rock? Is that like a pet rock from the 70s? The GOP doesn't need rock stars. They have solutions.
It's AC. Don't give me too much credit. :-) But thanks!
No candidate is perfect. Neither is the office. Politics & Sausage. Don't watch either being made. But rather than "lesser of two evils," go for the one who comes closest. Count the things you are *FOR* and compare what side the candidates stand on with those issues. From there, the choice should be easy, no matter the political stripe. And when a candidate is also *FOR* something as opposed to "I'm not the other guy," it's usually a winning situation.
Start with Blame-Gahzi. Move to fast and furious. That ought to keep them busy for quite a while.
Please return Chris Matthews' glasses and teleprompter. He's going to need them Tuesday night. And while you're at it, you may want to adjust your outer "feelings." Your jealousy is slipping through.
Chic-Fil-A type turnout? You have that, and Chris Matthews head will explode on national TV. Should be interesting to watch.
