Rick Perry’s Fed Up!—“The Last Warning Sign To The Danger That Lies Ahead.”

Above is a cup of coffee, a piece of carrot cake and a copy of Fed Up!–Our Fight To Save America From Washington. I took this picture a few hours ago.

As my friend and fellow Texas blogger Steve Wichard wrote when I posted this picture on Facebook—“So you are having something warm, something sweet and something nauseating.”

Steve could not be more wrong.

This is a great book.

You can tell it is a great work from the divine glare you see on this book written by self-anointed prophet Rick Perry.  This book is bathed in light for pointing the way out of our national troubles.

Here is what Newt Gingrich wrote in the introduction to Fed Up!—

” I wish this book never had to be written. It almost came too late. America is recklessly accelerating toward economic disaster. Fed Up! may be the last warning sign to the danger that lies ahead.”

It sure was nice of Mr. Gingrich to write such nice things about somebody to be running for President against in 2012—Assuming the Gingrich campaign makes it as far as 2012.

Just imagine that this solution to our national woes is available for just $21.99 and is explained in only 220 pages. Everything is so simple!

Though would true prophet charge anything at all?

I guess Governor Perry supports even a privatization of salvation.

Here is what it says in Matthew 7:15— “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”

While the coffee and the carrot cake are now gone, I’ve only completed the introduction, Governor Perry’s brief preface, and the first 3 pages of Fed Up!

I want to read the book over a few weeks so I can savor every word.

The Governor starts off by the preface saying–” I grew up in Paint Creek, Texas. If you can’t find it on a map I won’t be surprised.”

It seems Mr. Perry was already assessing the geography skills of Texas students after the deep education budget cuts of the recent legislative session.

I’m certain this book will provide me with a number of blog posts over the next few weeks.

If the book does provide me with some blog posts, I might well be the only person who gains anything of use by reading Fed Up!

Take Ownership Of The Constitution From The Far Right—Learn, Fight Back & Win

Republicans in control of the U.S. House read the Constitution out loud today on the floor of the U. S. House.

There is nothing wrong with reading the Constitution out loud. All people should know the Constitution.

The mistake has been us as liberals, progressives, and Democrats to allow people on the far-right, such as just about every member of the Republican Party at this point, to lay claim to ideological ownership of our founding documents.

The Constitution does not belong to people who feel it does not protect the rights of all Americans.

With this blog post, you see my copy of the Constitution with my cup of coffee at the White Castle at the corner of Reading & Taft in Cincinnati.

I keep a copy of the Constitution at all times. I have it with me even when I’m on the road. I’m ready to reply to all Constitutional questions should a Constitutional debate break out on the sidewalk, or any other place I may be in daily life. I’m not giving up our freedoms to any so-called Tea Party.

The Constitution is both the starting point of our laws, and a document that allows us to make progress in our society.

The Constitution allows for the rights of all people, and it allows for advancements to be made towards the goal of universal health care.

Learn about the Constitution for yourself. Don’t shy away from what makes our nation strong. Don’t let our futures be defined by our most selfish and fearful fellow citizens.

Give Instant Lottery Ticket To White Castle Worker While Bronski Beat Is Playing And Everybody Is Happy

This evening I ordered a cup of coffee at the White Castle at the intersection of Central Parkway and Martin Luther King in Cincinnati. I did this at the drive-up window.

The young woman who served the coffee was very nice. She was so nice, I gave her one of the Turkey Tripler $1 instant lottery tickets I had in my coat pocket. Maybe, though not likely I admit, she will win enough money to cover her Thanksgiving dinner.   

She seemed to appreciate my actions.

My rental car has satellite radio and I was listening to the 80’s new wave channel while ordering my coffee. I had my excellent interaction with the White Castle employee while  Bronski Beat was playing.

They are not my favorite, but it was good enough.

It’s good when everybody is happy. 

Service workers merit our respect.
