Why do all glamour model's look like they have been starved?…..Plus sized models deserve some respect….

Lets face it…most American women are no size zero……and I never could understand why every darn picture of a glamour model, or Hollywood actress, looked like they had spent the year in Biafra, Africa…..I’m glad to see that Glamour magazine has stepped up …and taken a page from reality, and is featuring plus sized model\’s in their next (November) issue…beauty isn’t just starved  looking women…..

Obama is doing good overall…but suffers generally in state polls…..

I get several polls…and while reading them I began to notice smoething that I thought couldn’t be right?……..while Obama polls in a almost all the big Polls at about 50%…a breakdown of the polls by state, shows a troubling disconnect for the presdient……

In a several of the states that he won in the general election almost a year ago…..he\’s down below 50%…way down…..

It’s too early to worry about 2012, and once he starts campaigning things will turn around…..but a long hot August, the isues of Aftghanistan, the economy, unemployment and some old bug- a-boo’s are taking their toll on the Presidents’s ratings………

What can we do with Iran?

The popular thinking around here is the administration is doing its best in talking to Iran…I did a post on that…..then I check a few sites a few days later, and my question given in the post is sitting there,  screaming from everyone  else…..Is the President getting rolled?……the final thing in this story is the piece in the New York Times declaring that the UN thinks that Iran has the knowhow to make a bomb……duh?

Listen folks…..I wouldn’t want Obama’s job…..nope…I’ll take the plane, and not having to wait on line, anywhere…but not the decision on this one……

Iran is what they would call in Star Trek…a Kobayashi Maru , or  a’No-Win’ situation…….

As I posted before, Iran’s political administration wants a nuclear bomb, and so does its people……while they have made concession’s in the past week in Geneva…the fact remains that they are busily working to achieve their goal……I mentioned the carrot and the stick……well I believe in that, but lets face it……in the end, sanctions are not going to stop them….we know it, and so does the President, he’s not dumb…I mentioned the Israeli’s, as the stick…..while a defensive strike by them would set things back…..the entire Middle East peace movement dies with that action…and there is no guarantee that the Israeli Defense Force will eviscerate the whole program…( I cannot see this president sending American aircraft to do the job, it’s not him)……..

So in the end, I for one, don’t have a hard answer…..I’ll bet no one else out there …..has one either………

The latest with the Gosselin's…..Jon explains his actions (he's mannning up)……this IS a messy divorce…..

Here’s the latest Post …with the up to date news about the halt in the production, the status of a state investigation into the child labor aspect (ther really isn’t much), and what Jon wants the future to be for their kids (no more cameras), and the financial implications of no show…..

Incidentally…I don’t know if it’s true ..but there is story out there that Jon cleared out the couples joint bank account…which would be heartless and I image illegal( pre-divorce aggrement?)…..

Finally!…….Elizabeth Edwards may file for a Divorce!

Listen…the story is from the National Enquirer right now…so we have to wait…but if it proves true, its about time…

Guys cheat on their wives…a lot of politicians do…guys have babies with other women…a lot of politicians do…but most of the ones that stay married…fess up to their wives…and spend their time in the dog house…and are truly sorry for their ‘Johnson’ problems…..one get the impression that that is not the case here in the fact that Edwards denied , vehemently that he was a party to this….

Add to this the fact that his wife stood by him believing his story, while being involved a fight for her life against cancer……

The guy is just too slick for me……and she needs to find someone else to be her partner…….

The NFL is thinking of adding two more games to the season……..

Why?…….I don’t know?….probably more money…but as this piece suggests…the biggest problem is going to be injuries, which have dogged teams more and more…..

My suggestion….have ony two pre-season games…..keeping the total number of games played the same as now, for the wary, and stressed players…….
