Thoughts While Shaving for July 26

Thoughts While ShavingThe Democratic political convention has moved to center stage, competing with terrorists around the world.

After the Dems, time for the Olympics.

A couple more pet peeves;

(a)  friends who are so biased they do not agree with my biases,

(b)  motorist who ride my bumper as if they will arrive at their site earlier if they drive ‘thru me”.

I wonder why we expect ‘wannabe politicians’ to have all the answers related to complicated issues, from the local level to the highest office in the land. Getting elected is not about having all the answers, it’s is as much a popularity contest as anything.  After the election, On The Job Training (OJT) begins.  Now, I do want my candidate to have some idea of the scope of  responsibilities of the office he/she is seeking.

I check FactCheck.org just about every day and recommend it.  A non-partisan site that checks what national candidates have said and what the real facts are.  Bet last nights speeches are being critiqued today, must confess have not checked as of this writing.

Thanks for your continued support of BladenOnline.  I must confess, it has surpassed my expectations.  BladenOnline is a daily source of information for Bladen County residents.  We may not get all the news, but so much more than whoever is in second place.  Again, Thanks.  And, if you would like for area residents to know about your business, contact Charlotte Smith at 910-876-5393.

Summer vacation for some is when you drink triple, see double and act single.

A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken.  James Dent
