Good morning everyone and happy Monday! Before I get started on my main subject, I wanted to share something that a friend sent me the other day.

In a bid to stem taxpayer losses for bad loans guaranteed by federal housing agencies Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac, Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn) proposed that borrowers be required to make a minimum 5% down payment in order to qualify. His proposal was rejected 57-42 on a party-line vote because, as Senator Chris Dodd (D-Conn) explained, “passage of such a requirement would restrict home ownership to only those who can afford it.”

Now you don’t know how badly I wanted this to be an accurate quote, but as I came to find out, this was written by satirist John Semmens. Damn!!! I thought the Democrats had finally come out and said what their true failings/ feelings are. I did read that the new rule is that 60% of your income can now be used to pay your mortgage on new loans. This is as dumb as requiring as little as 5% down. There is something seriously flawed in the Freddie Mac/ Fannie Mae organizations besides being controlled by the Barry Obama and Congress.

Is it just me or are there others that think these toads are attempting to create another mortgage/banking disaster? What else could it be? I can’t imagine that Barry Obama will use this next disaster to take over the banks, do you? Maybe it’s just that my tin foil hat is on a little too tight this morning. I will adjust that right now, so give me a second here ….. Ok now I think I’m good. Wait, maybe just a little foil over the temples…. There, now that’s better.

Now on to my main subject, but before I get to that, I saw something in the news the other day that I thought was absolutely charming by the Barry Obama. He came out and said that BP has got one week to fix this. Now isn’t that special?
Now what do you think the moron in chief is going to do when that deadline comes and goes? Maybe jump in the motorcade and drive over to the BP headquarters and kick some ass? I don’t know about you but I would pay a couple hundred bucks to watch that tap dance unfold. Or, you know what? Maybe he and the Congress could take over BP and turn it into a government sponsored Amtrak type of company. Now that would be interesting. What a plot for a reality show that would be. It would be just like the promise that Barry made about televising the complete health care debate. Now it occurs to me that with Barry and the Congress running the company, the spill is bound to get much worse, but that wouldn’t matter as they (Barry and the Congress) could do what they always do and that is to blame it all on BP and George Bush. Problem solved. What’s next? Maybe cap and tax trade?

Just one more thing before I dutifully move on to my main topic. Our old friend Iranian President Imanuttcase Inajacket Midget just took a couple more steps into the quick sand pit when it was announced last week that Saudi Arabia had announced that it was giving Israel permission to use its air space.

Now I’m not positive about this but the only thing that I can think of is the Israelis would want to use that airspace for is to turn Iran into a parking lot. This does concern me as I know for a fact there are a lot of good people in Iran that would like to enter “the midget” in a swimming contest that requires the strapping of bricks to the contestants’ ankles. Another note on the subject; The U.N. announced new significant sanctions on Iran. Some of the things on the list are Snickers bars, Band-Aids and microwave popcorn. Ya, that will show them!

Ok, now onto my main topic. I have never been a father, but on occasion I have been referred to as mother. Now I hesitate to bring this up as those who have made that kind of references to my character were of questionable character their own selves. [sic] A couple of note worthy individuals were friends that I went moose hunting with in Alaska a number of years back. I could write a couple of paragraphs about this subject but it will have to suffice to say that just like Sarah Palin, we brought home a lot of moose meat on that trip. I think one of the big reasons for that successful hunting trip and Sarah’s last moose hunting adventure was that we didn’t have John McCain’s presidential campaign handlers involved. You talk about a group of mothers….. Sorry, I couldn’t help that last sentence accidentally squeaking out and I will try and be more careful about going off the handle in the future. Or not!

    It took the Mexican government 10 months to cap the leaking Ixtoc I. 3 months into the Deepwater Horizon and its beginning to look as bleak.
