Greetings! Sometimes it’s hard pretending to work on a Friday ... especially when work keeps getting in the way of goofing off. Not much content today because A) I’m live at Serra Kia in Gardendale from 11-1 and have to get allllll the way across town and B) just because. So why am I wasting your time with these faulty excuses? Because if I don’t post my daily blog my parents call and ask where it is and why it isn’t posted and am I in trouble at work for not posting it.
President Obama is having a seriously bad week in the press. He's being called weak, he's being called ineffective, he's being called detached, and he's being called un-American. And that's just the stuff Hillary is saying. Meanwhile, Sara Palin is demanding President Obama’s impeachment. Really she’s just demanding attention. LOOK AT MEEEEEEE! Somebody talk about MEEEEEEEE!
The experts say we could expect gas prices to drop by 25-cents a gallon over the next month. The oil execs should have their cars, homes and vacation properties paid off by then...
And a few things you need to know …
On this date in 1798, the U.S. Marine Corps was created by an act of Congress. Can you believe that? Congress actually did something!
It was on this date in 1804 Aaron Burr shot former Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton in a duel. Can you imagine that? A vice-president actually doing something? The loser of the duel had to appear on the $10 bill.
Also on this date in 1979, the U.S. Space Station Skylab came crashing down to earth. However, even to this day, it's still higher up than the congressional approval ratings.
London has come in as the world's top tourist destination with 19 Million visitors expected this year... despite what happened under Jack Bauer's watch.
And ... I guess their ratings needed fattening up: Rosie O'Donnell is returning to "The View." Our long national nightmare is over! Just how did ABC lure Rosie back to "The View"? My guess is whale song.
