I am terribly disturbed by this news!!! Why do people have to make this much money??? It’s absolutely ridiculous. When I think about my upbringing and the upbringing of most middle class people who lived great, productive lives, with no real struggle, kids went to college, etc. These people did not make $350,000 per year. It’s just ridiculous. And these salaries are set to feed a lifestyle. The GM of Metro makes $350K and probably doesn’t even ride metro. His wife probably is a stay at home mom with some live-in African or Caribbean or Latino nanny who takes care of her kids while she starts a “business” and luxuriates with the other wives at the country club. These people ought to be ashamed of themselves. Though unemployment rates are going down, it’s still a mess. Gas prices are going up, so folks are thinking they can hop on Metro for something cheaper and it’s not! And this new stupid way they’re splitting the Smartrip card money from the parking money is ridiculous and just another way to ROB people of their money. If there’s such a deficit why don’t they get their salaries cut???? So, they’ll golf less and have to give up that BMW for a Corolla, so what! Wouldn’t that make more sense? If collectively these salaries were over $3 million and the deficit is $116 million, maybe giving up some of this executive money is what needs to be done.
So, let me get this logic of the fool ass Republicans straight… If I’m a waitress at some random restaurant, where I get FULL health benefits that happen to include coverage of birth control pills, whether I use them or not, they wanted it to be okay for my Catholic boss to not offer it to me cuz HE has an issue with contraception???? They better get their life and stop trying to control women’s! I mean, what year is it? I thought the suffrage movement was over.
So, the one superstition that seems to have stuck with the entire country is the 13th floor. Every building that’s tall enough eliminates the “13” from the elevator buttons, like we’re idiots because of a stupid superstition… or is it? I think this woman’s baby purposely stopped the elevator on 13, because that’s the passage way through hell… LOL. I kid, I kid. But, kinda crazy, right?
So, we know Obama will win. It’s inevitable. The GOP crew is full of loony’s and it’s just fun to watch them try. But, I was really curious to hear someone say recently that, the GOP is well aware of the fact that they don’t have the RIGHT Republicans running. And I really thought this guy would be up there. He got so much talk after his speech when Obama won… Most of it was about him sounding like Elmer Fudd, but folks really saw him as the answer to the GOP’s struggle with liberals and especially with not-so-conservative Republicans. Wonder why he’s not running???
Standing at the bus stop last night I was FREEZING! And I was in winter clothes and had only been out there for 15 minutes. These fools have been here for months, sleeping outside. So, you can’t really blame them for trying to build a house in the middle of McPherson Square, but come on you protesting fools… LMFAO! Did you really think you were going to keep this massive thing up in the middle of the city? Do you know where you are? Small town USA this ain’t. Main Street mentalities, oh no! DC is becoming more and more posh by the minute. Condos in the hood and a Starbuck’s on every corner.
My suggestion, as it’s always been, is that this movement needs some REAL structure. Who’s leading this thing? Whatever dumbass thought to start this in the winter is the ultimate dumbass cuz DC is MOST on fire in the summer. And all the politicos leave in August to go spend the country’s money on Martha’s Vineyard! So, regroup, and come back when folks can sleep in 80-90 degree weather and not attempt to build these hideous structures…
And what was up with the guy peeing on it? One thing I’m really tired of with this movement is how many penises are just out on display because they just go… anywhere. I walked by the National Theater the other day and this guy was peeing… across the street from The Wilson Building. It’s just in poor taste and, uh, no one wants to see your penis!
We play the New England Patriots on Sunday… OMG!!! The anticipation of the embarrassing loss!!! What kind of masochists are these guys??? Just give it up now. GIVE IT UP!!! We’re done. We’ve won and we’ve LOST. They should just have a party on the field. Have some balloons and drinks and just celebrate the end of a SUCKASS season!!!
We knew it was coming. We TOTALLY knew this was coming, so don’t be shocked and confused. She was willing, able and excited to marry Reggie, but their “schedules” were a problem. No, mama Karjennerian (you like how I mixed the names?) wasn’t feeling her meal ticket missing money work to be with that boy. Be happy Kim. Just be with whoever you want and be happy!
I mean… doesn’t he own the E Channel by now? Or doesn’t he want to try to buy it? I know E! is a sister network, but he does sooooo much on the network, just let it be. And when Larry King threw his name in for his CNN slot folks were truly puzzled. What the hell does Ryan know about world politics?
Wild and crazy, but this new Lisa was very focused and mature. She wasn’t drinking and fighting too much. She came there to win and she did!
Allison, my FAVE, cuz she’s just so quirky and cute was the runner-up. That was appropriate because she stomped on those girls the whole way through. Though, she isn’t usually too confident in her abilities she always rocked a great photo. Even that music video was awesome and she was in tears the whole time she was making it. Now, Allison, work on that whole sensitivity to the sun thing because with eyes that beautiful the WORLD needs to see them.
And the saddest most shocking news of the night was the absence of Angelea!!! What happened Tyra??? There was no explanation as to why Angelea was disqualified at the last minute and we sooooooo want to know. My first thought was… is she pregnant? But, that wouldn’t warrant a disqualification would it? Gotta read those in depth Top Model Laws to find out. Anyhoo, we love you Angelea and you deserved the runner-up spot or even the big win. Hope you keep at because you have that model spark!
Sooooooo glad we won yesterday. So very very glad. But, it was effin nail biting! And if they don’t let that damn Gano go… there might be a riot in SE! Between his missed field goals against the Cowboys, which probably could have gotten him a serious beat down in DC to yesterdays shinanigan’s with the kicks being blocked he’s just not the business. And Grossman! If you know he has small hands and the commentators are talking about his small hands why is his small hand ass the quarterback!!!
So, across the country Obama is basically being lynched by folks over this budget crisis and the unemployment rate. Yet, Black Friday was a big success. And oh, Cyber Monday brings in billions… Are you effin kidding me!!! Where are the priorities? This country is as lost as it ever was and it’ll never get better. From the greed of that NBA lock out to folks spending money they don’t have on a holiday that ain’t even a real holiday, our financial troubles will only get worse.
There’s some serious holes in this story. Who starts fighting at an Indian restaurant, then stabs and shoots people? Furthermore, why turn what’s a really nice restaurant (or at least the one in North G’town is nice) into an after hours club where folks can wear jeans and sneakers? That’s such a contradiction.
Our hearts and prayers go out to all the victims and we hope this gets resolved soon and that the families get justice.
