Today, in preparation for the London Olympics, a taxi driver jumps off Tower Bridge in protest. The United Cabbies Group has  organized a protest because of 100 miles of restricted cab lanes, about one-third of their routes will affect two out of five cab drivers.

The man dove 25 feet from bridge to water without being harmed.  He was then arrested after he was pulled out of the river. A spokesperson from the Port of London Authority commented.

“This was an absolutely crazy thing to do. He could easily have killed himself.

I guess the big plunge made his statement.

Why Mitt Romney is Unlikable. Top Ten Reasons to Dislike Mitt Romney.

H/T Tom

A lot is being said in the media about Mitt Romney not being “likable” or that he doesn’t “relate well” to people. Frankly, we struggled to understand why. So after much research, we have come up with a Top Ten List to explain this “unlikablility.”

 Top Ten Reasons To Dislike Mitt Romney:

 1. Drop-dead, collar-ad handsome with gracious, statesmanlike aura. Looks like every central casting’s #1 choice for Commander-in-Chief.

 2. Been married to ONE woman his entire life, and has been faithful to her, including through her bouts with breast cancer and MS.

 3. No scandals or skeletons in his closet. (How boring is that?)

 

4. Can’t speak in a fake, southern, “black preacher voice” when necessary.

 5. Highly intelligent. Graduated cum laude from both Harvard Law School and
Harvard Business School…and by the way, his academic records are NOT sealed.

 6. Doesn’t smoke or drink alcohol, and has never done drugs, not even in the counter-culture age when he went to college. Too square for today’s America?

 7. Represents an America of “yesterday”, where people believed in God, went to Church, didn’t screw around, worked hard, and became a SUCCESS!

 8. Has a family of five great sons….and none of them have police records or are in drug rehab. But of course, they were raised by a stay-at-home mom, and that “choice” deserves America’s scorn.

 9. Oh yes…..he’s a MORMON. We need to be very afraid of that very strange religion that teaches its members to be clean-living, patriotic, fiscally conservative, charitable, self-reliant, and honest.

 10. And one more point…..pundits say because of his wealth, he can’t relate to ordinary Americans. I guess that’s because he made that money.

HIMSELF…..as opposed to marrying it or inheriting it from Dad. Apparently, he didn’t understand that actually working at a job and earning your own money made you unrelatable to Americans. Oh and by the way HE GAVE HIS ENTIRE INHERITANCE TO CHARITY.

 

My goodness, it’s a strange world, isn’t it?

Obama speech in Aurora, CO after theater shooting, July 22, 2012. Obama stayed longer than expected as he has said to met with victims and family members on a one on one basis.

Obama did what a President should do for a Nation at a time of crisis. Obama did his storytelling events.  That was OK. Tough situation to attend to. I understand and give him an A for effort. ( how about that folks)

But why do flies follow Obama wherever he goes? At the end of speech, a fly was circling his head as he tried to bat it away several times and continued to speak. Did anyone else notice it? It starts at the 9 minute mark, really take a look yourself, fast forward the video.

Below are other video of Obama and the Fly.

NCAA announces Penn State University Football program sanctions, worse than the death penalty?  There is no red shirt year if a student athlete transfers and their grants and aid automatically reassigned to their new athlete program. If I was a parent, I would have my son leave that program very quickly and transfer.  The NCAA has left that door open very wide. The NCAA has acted vehemently in the horrific crimes against children that superiors ignored for the sake of a collegiate football program.

In my opinion, I believe they should disband the entire football program forever. Those children, now some adults lives will be forever altered. Why not a Collegiate Football program? It was because of what it fostered that lead to their physical emotional and spiritual harm.

But I do applaud the reality the NCAA has penalized the Penn State Football program. Greed has inflicted its nasty scar.
