commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Jon Stewart beating up the Democrats…..we go to the video tape!……

John Stewart  (of Comedy Central) does a routine on the democratic super majority in Congress, and their inability to get what they want……especially with Healthcare…The guy has got a point…but things are never that simple…yet,  he sure does take shots about this country not being able to  provide coverage for every American…Something I agree with it.

And, he attacks the war of words, and the politicians in D.C , with his satire…….

Mayor Michael Bloomberg has burned thru $64 million in his campaign for a third term…..

Yep…That’s right……. 64.8 million bucks…….$28 million in the last 11 weeks, to keep the job as Mayor of the City of New York. William Thompson, the New York City Controller, and his poorer opponent, has spend just half of his $8 million in campaign funds……..

Bloomberg, as everyone knows, is rich…how rich you ask?……Try $17.5 billion, plus or minus a few….. reports Forbes magazine…….

He’s gonna win a third term…but you know it’s funny….. No one I’ve talked to, in the city likes the guy, or is gonna vote for him…….

And just think…he ran as a businessman on the first go round…….Not a rich politician…..and he was only going to stay for two terms…max….

Is Basket Ball's Charles Barkley right?…….Alabama isn't ready for Artur Davis?…….

They didn’t vote for Barack Obama. They’re not going to vote for Artur Davis,” Barkley told WSFA-TV in an interview at a golf tournament..

Walking, Running and Biking…amen

For the last 30 years or so I have been walking, running and riding my bike….it is a godsend……..I don’t know how I could do without it…….it has brought men countless moments of joy, and aches and pains……but it is well worth it……

Mornings mostly because that’s how I wake up and deal with the aches and the rest of the day…in the heat, cold, and only summer rain……And during the real cold winter occasional outside runs but it’s down to the basement and the good ole’ treadmill…….

Of course my other secret is people……during my walks and runs I see all the neighborhood people I would never know just riding in my car…the daily hello’s and smiles…the one’s that tell me they’ll join me…and some actually do……and my whole family has gotten into the routine……

In the end it’s the good feeling when you finish and the challenge of doing it when you feel lousy (my best workout are when I feel that way)………..

I’m going to keep wearing out my sneakers and riding the bike…….and it’s gonna keep me feeling good……

David Letterman's non-joke admission………..

Last night, American’s premier late night talk show host blurted out a remarkable story that the live audience didn’t realize was true……..That someone had tried to blackmail him for things that he did do..…….Namely, have affairs with several of his co-workers…….

The person wanted  $2 million to keep that information quiet……….

Letterman of course had to swallow hard and talk to somebody..then go to authorities who went and collared up a fellow employee of CBS that worked for the “48 Hours ‘ show……

That sad thing is that Letterman just married  his longtime girlfriend Regina Lasko in March, and they have a little son.

And so, another rich and powerful ‘ober\’ male admits in public that he couldn’t keep his ‘Johnson’ in his pants……..The list seems endless…..And continues to grow…..

Jon shuts TLC down by locking them out……….

The people at TLC aren’t too smart…Why would they demote Jon from the marque…criticize the guy for his personal behavior (they’re right) in public…Then be  surprised when he locks their crew out the house when they show up to film……… WHAT WAS THEY THINKING!

Look, even though the guy has an apartment in New York he’s the parent who spend more time with kids , it appears to me…..Kate is all over the place on TV. This week Jon came out and admitted that his behavior wasn’t ‘G’ rated and said he’s reassessing his life style, and that he wanted to slow the divorce and spend some time talking to his wife (who still wants to proceed full speed with the divorce). Jon has also mentioned that all the camera’s and publicity now isn’t good for his kids, which I agree with. But the camera’s bring them money, lots of it, I hear.

I’m sure this is going to the lawyers, and this is turning into a bitter divorce case, in public…….But the people at TLC are working hard to kill the golden goose.

Jon and Kate need to spend some time together (without the camera’s, media and bodyguard), and work out the next moves in the lives…….do it for the kids…they deserve better………

Update…….Jon on Larry King………
