He popped in here a while back when the same question came up. Seems he had
enough wood working and was going elsewhere with his talents.
Truthfully, I think he was abducted by aliens! I have a problem believing he
"hung it up" with the skills he has!
You know, some folks have to keep going forward. Out to the great
unknown, that's where the fun resides.
Personally, I wouldn't want to go to my grave, retirement, or anyplace
else thinking I left too much on the table.
I applaud his move.
Comfort zones are for weenies.
That is the truth. Exploring and developing new ideas (to me) is what
gets me up in the morning. To fund that process, I have to maintain
some of the status quo. Believe you me, if I didn't need the money, I
would stop slugging those damned countertops regardless of their
profitability. I have to play to pay to play.
I am not sure why he did what he did, but the fact that he made that
decision is indeed to be applauded, for the courage alone.
You can't get to second base and keep one foot on first. (Or as a
buddy of mine in Rochester says: "you can't get laid and keep your
dick in your pants.")
You know you have simplified your life about as much as possible when
your key ring has only ONE key.
The key for the boat that you will sail to catch the morning tide to
see what is over the horizon.
The goal of almost every cruising sailor.
Sometimes I am longing back for the days that all we had to do was untie
the line to shore, hoist the sail and sail away. The outbord auxiliary had
a string to start the stinky, and was used only when poling was useless.
His comment mentioned something about the fact that just as he was about
to celebrate the rewards for one of his exquisite carvings, a bill from the
state for workers' comp showed up and essentially wiped out all of those
rewards. He decided it wasn't worth working for the state.
If you're going to be dumb, you better be tough
Yup, Lefty's fault.
What he DID say, that he got hit by an insurance bill equalling his
profits of this particular job. Workman's Comp. Is insurance a
socialist thing? You know.. like....
Naaaaaaa. Can't be.
Would he have the class to apologize? Limbo has never apologized for
anything, that I can recall, not even his "prescription drug
dependency," something that he calls drug addiction in less wealthy
He's another superpatriot who wants others to do the fighting, while
he rouses the rabble.
Tom left off my favorite, Miss Piggy, Ann Coulter. No talent. No
position except she hates liberals (we who supposedly seldom thank God
for much, thank God for her hate: it is a benison). She thinks it
would be fun to A bomb Iran. She stole my horse's face, too.
I do get curious about the tone of some of this right wing fervor: it
is either hate-filled, a la Ms Coulter and Limbaugh, or loud and spit
spraying like Hannity and O'Reilly.
Sort of an "I got mine, f&&ck you who might want some of it to run the
country." In the process, their cohorts found and run companies like
Oh, well that just makes it all better, doesn't it? Tell me something and
be honest. If what Obama said had been uttered by a prominent Republican,
would they even have a job right now? Would the Shriver family and the
Special Olympics be all understanding? Hell, no, they wouldn't. There
would be a giant shit storm and every major network would have it as their
top story until a resignation was extracted. But I guess we can't be that
hard on Obama. In fairness, he didn't have his teleprompter to read from.
Classy. At least she's an improvement over Pelosi. *shiver*
If you think O'Reilly is a Republican hack, you haven't seen his show much.
Let's see. Limbaugh...check. Hannity....check. Ann Coulter...check.
O'Reilly...check. Congrats. You hit almost all of the talking points. If
you could have worked in Pat Robertson, you would have gotten a free turn.
Feel free to pick a prize from the top shelf.
I am not an Obama fan nor do I hate him because he is a Democrat. I believe
in united we stand.
Having said that I have heard his comments 2 or 3 times about the bowling
event and perhaps the news did it's usual deed in only reporting the
sensational parts but I am absolutely clueless as to what was offensive
about his comments.
I wasn't offended, but Todd is correct. The networks would still be feeding
on it if Bush had said it.
I notice Obama gave up his teleprompter at the last news conference.
However, there was a large screen TV at the back of the room he was reading
his speech from. I love it. . . :-)
I agree with the last comments. I really could care less about Obama but
not much. I agree with his wants but absolutely not with his methods.
As for the bowling score, I wish I could do as good. HI HI...
"Wants others to do the fighting"? Well, sure. Leave it up to the
professionals - I sure don't want to pull my own teeth!
But our soldiers are volunteers. They joined for the opportunity to kill
people and blow things up. That, and they get paid to do it!
Our soldiers are trained to be there, they need to be there, they WANT to be
there! There's folks that need killin'!
