Well, It's month eight of "Let's find a way to further screw up the economy", headed chiefly by those zany, thieving politicians whose antics keep us on our toes. You have to understand that, by definition, most politicians are not too bright. If they were, they'd be escaping on golden parachutes right about now.
Nay, my little buttercups, politicians trek through life unaware of the definition of economics and morality, staying steadfast to their plans to steal or spend as much monies as they can get away with. The few who are already wealthy and/or educated, are only serving in politics to fluff their egos and further their legacies.
You see, smart people don't become politicians. Smart people make as much as 100 times more than politicians and have no time for, or interest in, the politics of America. They do, however, use these little pinheads to further their own interest by contributing directly or indirectly to the politician's pockets.
So, be patient, my little gun-toters, politicians are doing the best that they can considering what they have to work with. Just remember how well you've done since the last election and vote for the best of the losers in 2012.
The News As I See It: Finally, we have a ceiling debt deal. See what happens when the two parties put aside their principles and do what is best for them personally? It’s what they call a "two-step" deal. It steps on the middle class and the lower class.
The TSA has a new program where agents have in-depth conversations with passengers to detect suspicious behavior. An "in-depth" conversation with an idiot? I’ll just take the groping.

The new debt deal sets the debt limit until 2013. The best part is that it prevents another "Smurfs" movie before 2014.

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) I have recently learned that my prayers only get answered if I forward an email to seven of my friends and make a wish within five minutes. 2) Last year on vacation, I called the hotel operator and she said, "How can I direct your call?" I said, "Well, you could say 'Action!' and I'll begin to dial. And when I say 'Goodbye', then you can yell. 'Cut!'" 3) Imagine if you were a drummer and you accidentally picked up two magic wands instead of drum sticks.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: My thanks to my pal Wally for his contribution to today's stories.
Joe, the farmer, was selling his peaches door to door. He knocked on a door and a shapely 30-something woman dressed in a very sheer negligee answered the door. He raised his basket to show her the peaches and asked, "Would you like to buy some peaches?"
She pulled the top of the negligee to one side and asked, "Are they as firm as this?" He nodded his head and said, "Yes ma'am," and a little tear ran from his eye. Then she pulled the other side of her negligee off asking, "Are they nice and pink like this?" The farmer said, "Yes," and a tear came from the other eye.
Then she unbuttoned the bottom of her negligee and asked, "Are they as fuzzy as this?" He again said, "Yes," and broke down crying. She asked, "Why on earth are you crying?"
Drying his eyes he replied, "The drought got my corn, the flood got my soy beans, a tornado leveled my barn, I voted for Obama and now I think I'm gonna get screwed out of my peaches!"
A guy walks into a bar with a piano entertainer, sits down and orders a beer. The piano player's monkey soon jumps on the bar and and takes a leak in the guy's beer. The guy yells to the piano player, "Hey, do you know your monkey just pissed in my beer?" The piano player says, "No, but if you hum a few bars, I might remember it!"
A man was driving down the street in a sweat because he had a very important meeting and couldn't find a parking place. Looking up to heaven, he said, "Lord, take pity on me. If you find me a parking place, I will go to church every Sunday and quit drinking!" Just then, a parking place appeared - the closest one imaginable. The man looked up again and said, "Never mind Lord, I just found one."
That's it for today my little elves. Remember, live life as a dog does. Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy. Lord knows, some of the girls I've dated have. I'm going to AREA 51 for happy hour. More on Friday.
