Today was almost – almost – downright pleasant, the temp dropping to a bone-chilling 108. After the 115s of the last few days, believe me, we’ll take it!

I think the heat has gotten to the idiots we’ve elected here in AZ to run the state. The state is in such a hole financially that now they’re talking about selling some of the state Capitol buildings. Personally, I think it’s a great idea – I’d even go for selling the Capitol itself. Everyone else is cutting back and belt-tightening, government should be able to do the same thing. The less in size and shape, the better.

So the esteemed head of the worldwide Anglican Communion, the Archbishop of Canterbury, is now talking about a “two track” arrangement where churches that ordain actively gay clergy and consecrate same-sex unions can somehow peacefully co-exist alongside so-called “orthodox” churches that don’t favor that sort of thing as a way to avoid schism. My take: why stop there? Why not a three-track arrangement for churches that promote incest and beastiality, or a four-track arrangement for churches that allow polygamy. I mean, how stupid is this? Why bother with any pretense that you actually hold any kind of belief in anything?

If there’s one thing I can’t tolerate is wishy-washy institutions. Say what you believe and believe what you say. Otherwise, why bother to even exist in the first place? Today’s Anglican Communion is an embarrassment, and the odd duck who heads it symbolizes the sad state it finds itself in.

When a President loses the trust of the American people it’s a damned hard thing to get back again. For someone trumpeted by his a$$-kissers in the mainstream media as a genius and savior, Barack Obama has shown himself to be pretty tone-deaf politically. Most people don’t believe the nation’s health-care system is broken. Certainly it needs some tweaking, but I sure as hell don’t want it “fixed” by extending coverage to illegal aliens, providing abortion on demand, and having bureaucrats rationing the care of the elderly. Like Arizona, the federal government should be doing what everyone else is doing – i.e., cutting back on spending, and cutting taxes to put more money in the pockets of the people who need it and would like to spend it.

…Of course, we all know that ain’t gonna happen anytime soon.

Hmmm… Wasn’t it yours truly who first compared Obama to Richard Nixon? Nobody listens to me, but then again everyone in the Goodboys Nation knows no one listens to The Great White Shank.

It’s official: The Great White Shank and the wife are comin’ to New Orleans for a visit in late September. I can’t wait!

  2. Wish we could, Jana, but we’ve only a week and between four days on a cruise ship and three days at our favorite hotel in all the whole wide world there’s just no time (not to mention, not enough $).

    Believe me, you’re not chopped crawfish, but then again, you’re also not Antoine’s


    or the Royal Omni Orleans
