Let me screw up your state, too

DorothyGaleHouseWitchThe cartoon I posted this morning kinda hits a nerve with me.

I thought I told this story earlier, but I can’t find that I did. So, you’re gonna have to put up with it now. And you have no one to blame but yourself for reading it.

Anyway, I was driving into work one day — this was a couple of years ago — and I got behind a car with a Michigan tag. It also had an Obama sticker on it.

I prepared to turn at a light, and the vehicle in front of me, with the Michigan tag and Obama sticker, turned the same way. Next light, same thing. And, sure enough, drove into the parking area at work just ahead of me.

Now, I’m thinking, sure, our company is doing good, and hiring people from all over. But this is going too far.

Somebody from Michigan been voting Democrat, and then they’re having economic issues because, and then they need to move 800 miles south to get a job?

Okay, I’m fine, so far. They screwed up — screwed up bad — and now know better, right? No, they dumb as ever. They brought their Obama sticker with them.

That politics that screwed up their state, they’re bringing to my state, and now they’re going to screw it up, too.

Anyway, that’s why the cartoon last hour kinds resonates with me. The image of the dominoes falling worries me, if they make my state one of those dominoes, too.

Maybe something will fall on them. The most appropriate thing for what to fall on an Obama voter? Dorothy Gale’s house.

Sunny Day…

BigBirdWorkI don’t have anything personally against Big Bird, or Bert and Ernie, or any of the Sesame Street crew. And, I’m not happy about the latest bit of news to hit the Sesame Workshop, which makes the show. However, I wonder if they’ll finally come to realize that Obama isn’t their friend.

You see, Sesame Workshop just cut their staff by 10%.

“We at Sesame Workshop are not immune to the challenges of today’s economic environment. After careful review, we have concluded that we must operate, and achieve our strategic priorities with fewer resources. Therefore, we have reluctantly determined that we must reduce our workforce by approximately 10%,” said CEO H. Melvin Ming in a note sent to staff this afternoon.

Oh, in case you forgot, this isn’t the first layoff for the company. A dozen were let go last year. And another 60 were let go in 2009. That’s 102 of the 355 that were employed when Obama took office. That’s right, 29% of the company’s workforce has been downsized since Obama moved into the White House.

I just hope that they remember that today’s layoff’s are brought to you by the letter “O.”

But they won’t.

Heat map

Have you seen the new meteor impact heat map?

Well, there’s a map that plots all of the recorded meteorite impacts on Earth since 2300 BC. Note, this is recorded impacts. If no one saw it or found evidence of it, it’s not recorded. That’s why there aren’t a whole lot shown over the oceans. So, it’s not a full mapping of every meteor impact, just those we know about.

You can go to the interactive map and zoom in or select any place on earth. It contains information about each strike. I found it interesting.

Naturally, it’s inspired by the recent meteor strike in Russia. But, it’s not the only map inspired by recent events.

Here’s a map of areas of the United States that are victims of the economic impact of Obama and Democrat policies. Those adversely affected are shown in purple.

It’s a little more accurate than the meteor map. And a lot more scary.

It’s all about winning. It’s not about doing what is right. It’s not about what is doing what is best for the country. It’s about winning. And the other side losing.

Any questions?
