It was reported in the December 6 Des Moines Register that MSNBC host Martin Bashir would be leaving his post after the bizarre remarks he made about Sarah Palin. Like a lot of Iowa liberals, Martin Bashir’s head would spin and green pea soup would shoot out of his mouth at the mere mention of Palin’s name. His throat would constrict his voice to a gurgling, demon possessed growl and his face would turn beet red. Saturday Night Live immediately hired him.
In other news, the headline on page 3 of the same paper read, “Milk prices could rise as farm bill cutoff nears”. In no way could market forces ever stabilize themselves on their own. In no way could the laws of supply and demand come to a logical price on milk. Nope, only with the interference from our beneficent overlords in the government can we possibly afford milk. Only then will we ever have milk again, through government action. Face Washington, get on your knees, and bow six times.
[That was so cute Bashir resigning, just like liberals had standards.]
The post popular show about a family on TV isn’t the Kardashians, it would seem to be Duck Dynasty. These Louisiana swampbillies seem to be cleaning their clock. Not even close. A Nielson annihilation as it were.
No plastic surgery. No eye-popping swimsuits. No fast cars. No drunken tirades. No Hollywood parties.
They have beards. Guns. Dogs. 4WD’s. Prayers to Jesus. And lots and lots of camouflage.
Paris and Nicole are turning over in their grave. A&E seems to have a ratings monster.

It should be deliciously ironic to a lot of people, the tie-in between “Cyber Monday” and the Obamacare website. One will host traffic from a sizeable percentage of the country in one day, the other will be lucky to stay upright. One will display the efficiency of private industries quest for profit, the other will be lucky if it doesn’t crash and burn.
44 years ago we put a man on the moon, now we can’t launch a website.

Mel Sanders’ letter to the editor in the 11/28 Register seems to have a faulty premise. He writes, “Being a science-based utility, charged with making health decisions… ” ??? Oh? I don’t remember asking the Water Department to make health decisions for me? I remember asking them to provide me with clean water.
Sanders wants cities to continue adding fluoride to their entire water supply. Really? Brushing your teeth with toothpaste and using a fluoride rinse would to a much better job. Fluoridating all the water used in a town or city is a bit wasteful and pointless.
Why would you fluoridate the water used to wash your car? Your dishwasher? Why would you spread fluoride over your garden? Where is the necessity to put fluoride in the toilet you flush?? How much water do you use to shower each day? If in a week you use 200 gallons of water, and only 4 of those you drank, why would you spend the money to fluoridate the other 196? Where is the logic in that?
Like I say, what is the percentage of water used for human consumption? 1 % ? 2 % ? Let’s TRY using science, brush your teeth with a good toothpaste and use a fluoride rinse. Yeah you can kill a fly with a cannon, but it isn’t very cost efficient.
