Get It Right Before You Speak

When I was listening to the radio this morning, the mid-morning, early-afternoon DJ, announcer or whatever they are called, was making mention of Autumn beginning this Saturday, the 20th. Well, it does not start on that date. It is September 23, the same day as my late father’s birthday was. Then about an hour later she said the same thing again, about the date that Autumn begins.

I was tempted to take a wake over to the radio station, which is just around the corner from where I live, and tell her or someone to tell when the correct date is. I mean, is it too much to take a look at the calendar to see what day the new season begins.

Its just one of those things in life that bugs the shit out of me.

My Likes

Here are some of the things that I like.

Black coffee: Most of the time I like it strong. No sugar, as it does it kills the flavor.
Crosswords: On line and on paper, using a pen with black ink.
Books: Mostly novels and old literature.
TV: I’m very picky about what I watch. Old Law & Order, NCIS, Burn Notice, Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Everybody Loves Raymond and Seinfeld.
Sports on TV: Baseball, college football, its more exciting than the NFL, which do watch. Also college basketball.
Happy people.
Winter and Autumn.
Walking, except when there is to much ice on the pavement.
Favorite foods: Chicken, Pasta, Pork Roast.
1% Milk.
Bottled water.
Rainy days.
Newspaper: The Boston Globe. Digital and the print editions.
Ice cream: When I’m in the mood for it.
Clothes: T shirts, sweatshirts on the loose fitting, and jeans.
Holding the door open, for both men and women.
Writing: When I get my act together, and hopefully get into a routine.

There are more things I like, but the list above, tells you a little something about me.

I will do a follow up post, concerning my dislikes.

Liberal

What do our opponents mean when they apply to us the label
Liberal? If by Liberal they mean, as they want people to believe,
someone who is soft in his policies abroad, who is against local
government, and who is unconcerned with the taxpayer’s dollar,
then … we are not that kind of Liberal. But if by a Liberal
they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone
who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who
cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their
housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and
their civil liberties — someone who believes we can break
through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies
abroad, if that is what they mean by a Liberal, then I’m proud
to say I’m a Liberal.

— John F. Kennedy

The above quote by the 35th President of the US, should be heeded
by the right-wingers, and the so-called Tea Party politicians. Sadly
it is not their want. They rather see people lose their jobs, deny them
health care, food and other necessities of life.

They get their jollies off, bashing the current president, repeatedly
lying for just about everything he says and does. It just doesn’t make
any sense at all.

I could go on, but I’m sure you’ll get what I am saying.
