Rings true now more than ever. The current pervasive grumpy-ness is a result of wide spread narcissism coupled with a down economy. Time to focus on the “we” and not the “me.”

digital is ok I guess. I haven’t spent a lot of time with it. I am still trying to figure out how to post images to this blog.

Two years ago, I watched Obama’s inauguration at the big VA hospital in Dallas. It was a freedom day for me. I was told my ankle was healed and I didn’t have to wear that damned soft boot when I went outside. And I could drive again. It was mostly a good day. I was out of commission for about 90 days and it was like “house arrest.”
Doots, don’t you know that gumn’t health care doesn’t work?
Doots; gosh, your ankle injury seems like years and years ago. So much has happened.
You must post a Rance and Maddie pic soonest.
Christian Science Monitor article on the JFK inaugural speech.
“How good was Kennedy’s inaugural address? Very. Historians generally rank it as one of the four best US presidential inaugural speeches of all time. William Safire, former New York Times columnist and Nixon speechwriter, included it in a volume he compiled of the greatest speeches delivered in history, writing that it “set the standard by which presidential inaugurals have been judged in the modern era.”
…. And what are the three other best inaugural addresses, you ask? FDR’s 1933 speech, in which he famously declared, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” And Lincoln’s two inaugurals, which are among the greatest short works ever written in English and deserve their own Google logos. Lincoln’s birthday is coming up, by the way.
I love the CS Monitor, and that it’s on our sidebar.
Check out Google, they are honoring today’s 50th aniversary of JFK’s swearing in.
Link to JFK inaugural address.
Link to first and second Lincoln inaugural addresses.
Second Lincoln, ends with the memorable “with malice toward none, with charity for all” :
And, finally, FDR’s first.
Great links Sra Dog. Thanks.
Welp, I just had me some of that Socialist medicine this AM. Peed in a cup and visited with the Dr had my blood work looked at and had a nice visit with the Dr. $15.00 Took less than an hour.
Doots, capitalistic medicine costs me a $50 copay to pee in a cup, $50 copay for blood work, and $50 to visit with the doctor. So it cost me 10 times more than more than your socialist medicine, and I have to wait longer.
