There’s a HOLE in the BUCKET…

The “PRINCE” of ‘CHANGE’ has been “at it” for more than 100 days. So far he’s done quite a few things that he’s ‘PROMISED’. Now I’m somewhat at a loss as to the positives, since the “news” agencies tend to HONE their views on the GRATING, DEGRADING, UNGRATEFUL, AND GRATUITOUS that have made themselves the most notible/ notorious. Oh… there has been a “SUPREME” satisfaction with Sonya Sotomayor, and we just MAY be able to get from here to there without trading in our offspring.

Now that the bullies of the child of the bully pulpit champion are freeing themselves of the well ‘OILED’ regime there seems to be not much difference , except by the “DRUM-MAJOR”. In that this situation that we’re ALL going through has prodded me to express my ‘ANGER’ and ‘DISAPPOINTMENT’ LIKE THIS.

Imagine ANY ONE of the “major” players of the “GOVERNING” body taking their place on a stage that makes them tell the truth through song. As my example for this exercise’s inspiration I begin with this folk song because we’re all just FOLKS.

I’m all too happy that the visuals can be so easily replaced. I put President Obama and Nancy Palosi together for their admission about just HOW bad this nation’s monetary situation has become. I’m including the lyrics so that you can make your own mental “video”. Have fun and NO TEARS, Because …

There’s a hole in the bucket, dear Liza, dear Liza,
There’s a hole in the bucket, dear Liza,
There’s a hole.

Then fix it dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
Then fix it dear Henry, dear Henry, fix it.

With what should I fix it, dear Liza, dear Liza,
With what should I fix it, dear Liza, with what?

With a straw, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
With a straw, dear Henry, dear Henry, with a straw.

But the straw is too long, dear Liza, dear Liza,
The straw is too long, dear Liza, too long.

Then cut it dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
Then cut it dear Henry, dear Henry, cut it!

With what shall I cut it, dear Liza, dear Liza,
With what shall I cut it, dear Liza, with what?

With an ax, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
With an ax, dear Henry, an ax.

But the ax is too dull, dear Liza, dear Liza,
The ax is too dull, dear Liza, too dull.

Then, sharpen it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
Then sharpen it dear Henry, dear Henry, sharpen it!

With what should I sharpen it, dear Liza, dear Liza,
With what should I sharpen, dear Liza, with what?

With a stone, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
With a stone, dear Henry, dear Henry, a stone.

But the stone is too dry, dear Liza, dear Liza,
The stone is too dry, dear Liza, too dry.

Then wet it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
Then wet it dear Henry, dear Henry, wet it.

With what should I wet it, dear Liza, dear Liza,
With what should I wet it, dear Liza, with what?

With water, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
With water, dear Henry, dear Henry, with water.

But how shall I get it?, dear Liza, dear Liza,
But how shall I get it?, dear Liza, with what?

Row over US Bollywood ‘detention’

Shah Rukh Khan, 11 Aug 2009

Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan has appeared in more than 70 films

India has asked the US to explain why a leading Bollywood film star was allegedly detained for two hours at Newark airport, which serves New York.

Shah Rukh Khan, who was released after India’s embassy in the US intervened, said he felt angry and humiliated.

The actor, who is promoting a film on racial profiling, said he was stopped because he had a Muslim name.

But US customs officials denied that Mr Khan had been detained, saying he was questioned for 66 minutes.

Elmer Camacho, a spokesman for the US Bureau of Customs and Border Protection, said the questioning was part of the agency’s routine process to screen foreign travellers, the Associated Press news agency reports.

Check list

The US ambassador to India, Timothy Roehmer, said the embassy was looking into Mr Khan’s case.

Speaking in Delhi, Mr Roehmer said: “Shah Rukh Khan, the actor and global icon, is a very welcome guest in the United States. Many Americans love his films.”

He said the embassy was trying to “ascertain the facts of the case – to understand what took place”.

Mr Khan, 44, earlier told the Press Trust of India news agency he had been detained by immigration officials at Newark airport because his name came up on a computer check list.

He told the agency that he had been released after he was allowed to message a politician in India, who contacted the Indian embassy in Washington on his behalf.

Mr Khan was on his way from New York to Chicago to attend an Indian independence day celebration when he was stopped at Newark airport in the state of New Jersey.

Mr Khan later tried to play down the incident.

When asked about it while attending the Chicago celebration, he said: “I think it’s a procedure that needs to be followed, but an unfortunate procedure.”

The news was widely reported by Indian media outlets.

Mr Khan has appeared in more than 70 films and is considered one of India’s most recognisable and popular celebrities.

Last month, America’s Continental Airlines apologised to APJ Abdul Kalam amid outrage in India when it emerged that the former Indian president had been frisked and made to remove his shoes at Delhi airport in April.

The airline said in a statement that it had not intended to offend Mr Kalam or the sentiments of the people of India.

This has been a BBC News “Up” date.

If we keep this up we won’t have to be cautious… nobody will want to go through this so they won’t come.

One day later: August, (How APPROPRIATE !), 16/ 2009. Do you think that Bill Clinton might salvage [THIS situation]? The word ‘enflummox’ is now ENFLAMED.

It’s Time For a Reality Check

This is the opening sentence received from Mr. Obama’s Senior Advisor, David Axlerod. If you have an email account the White House may have sent you this “hyp-ra-bol” of our latest scheduled fleecing. It’s only ‘fair’, (If it were ANY good they’d call it a “Great”.) There’s nothing that lets you know that you’re “IMPORTANT than having a computer regurgitate your name for the proverbial “gallup” through the numbers. It shouldn’t surprise me since I had just sent Mr. Oabma and Dr. James Curran, (of Emory University.), former CDC head of HIV/AIDS , an introductory letter about an item I’ve been attempting to produce to HELP FUND RESEARCH and TREATMENT for diseases like CANCER(S), SUBSTANCE ABUSE(S), and HIV/AIDS. ALL “heavy hitters” in the realm of ‘HEALTH’ and whether administrations seriously do ‘CARE’ about the lives of THIS and OTHER nations.

Is this the “DARK KNIGHT’S ” answer to the INTERNATIONAL search-light he’d spotted from those steamy Chicago avenues? CAN this be the echoed ‘CRIES’ (of) “The Beloved Country”? KEN-YA hear it? Whether you want to, (or can.), “LIVE”-strong is up to how much support you’ll give to the glitter of sweat when it’s packaged so well… and has just enough “natural” lighting for the assured 3D depth of PISNEY/ DIXAR artistry.

Is it really so hard for this “EDUCATED MAN” to pull a Siddhartha-esque moment and sit with those who offer him the fruits of THEIR garden of learning. The grove of ” SIMPLE, AND EFFECTIVE” dropping knowledge’s sustenance’s so close that just holding out one’s hand makes “HUNGER” a past tense.

The “REALITY Checks”, how many more does this Man’s “advisors” believe we have available before the REAL ‘ACCOUNTING’ lifts U(.)S(.) from the ability to receive a true “PAYABLES” draft, in any form, ?

Even though I won’t “Steele” for a living I am in search of my African heritage by extending my “MEMORY” by turning “HANNIBALISTIC”, because there AIN’T no mountain high enough… (For my thoughts) to keep me from gettin’ to you.

If Mr. Obama is seriously looking for a reality here’s a smidge. 1.) the world Cup of Football will be played in South Africa, one of the highest per capita places for HIV/AIDS, AND authorities want to LEGALIZE PROSTITUTION to “show hospitality” to the incoming visitors. Who is going to write the checks for THAT ! 2.) Advertising for the sale of DRUGS is making Timothy Leary and Abby Hoffman heroes of the mother’s little helper faction.

The funny thing is that I’ve “spent”three days at hospital, of those three days my billing will, most likely, remove $2,700.00, (AFTER DEDUCTIBLES @ 80/20.). If there was still a studio 54 slot I would STILL be able to “DANCE” for five extra days.

The reality check that I’d like to fill is the one where I can really do/ PROVIDE something that the world can use … I DO, but things are happening too fast for some folk, and those who are supposed to help are confusing the situation just enough that responsible people won’t feel it when it touches them.

And for Grant Hospital/ Columbus, Ohio’s Abbie and Rhia: You ARE BLESSED.

Mr. President, as of Friday August 7, 2009 my health decided that I couldn’t be an EMPLOYED stagehand anymore, there’s more to health “care” than a CHECK, the currency also involves IF an employer cares after the hospital’s concerted efforts.
