Mimi In A Minute #15 ~ Just Send The Dog






These things keep me up at night.
They give me a headache.
I just need sixty seconds of your time to unclog my pencil brain
so that I can get some sleep.
Do you mind? I have a few things to say.
This is Mimi unplugged.

Hide your children.




The General Motors Bailout: I don't know why but every instinct in my body is screaming STOP. NO. ENOUGH. This is a really bad idea. (sorry for shouting)










To the vigilante killer who gunned down the Kansas abortion physician in church:
I love how you proved your non-violence stance with violence. Dr. Tiller would be proud.


To the government employee who accidentally posted "highly confidential safeguards sensitive" information about nuclear weapons ON THE INTERNET: YOU should have gotten a paycut! And we are trusting them with our social security numbers? Now that's "keeping America informed."

Parents: Stop blaming the teachers when your kids get in trouble at school. Come to school, take them home and deal with them (the kid, not the teacher). The rest of the class would like to get an education.










Someone from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia visited my site today and didn't leave a comment. Twice. That's where President Obama is today. Maybe he was on a coffee break looking for a new idea. Can someone say peace globe?







To the researchers who just discovered that TV causes learning lags in infants: DUuUUUUH.

To "Paddy the Puppy" the black lab
who sniffed out 35,000 illegal DVDs in Malaysia all in a day's work: And we can't find Bin Ladin? Cover the mountains of Pakistan with Purina and send the dog.











Congress: You can't find enough money to reduce the exponential red ink in Washington?

Send the dog.And finally....

To the state of Oregon: I love it! You are charging prisoners for luxury accommodations in the slammer - and extra for bathroom tissue and meals. Kinda gives the term "bailout" a new meaning.....


And if someone decides to check out early before paying - let's all say it together -
Send the dog!

Whew! I feel better. Thanks for listening.Sixty seconds flew by.
I think my blogsomnia is cured.
Lights out.
P.S. Homer is having a fit. I'd better go see to him. I think he's hormonal or something.....

Do you think the "Pro Life" people will ever wake up and say to themselves: "Hey. If we don't want any killing, maybe we shouldn't be doing it"?

Mimi Lenox said...

Fee - Fortunately, all pro-lifers aren't wacko like this guy. Most are honorable people with a right to their opinion and go about it peacefully. This was such a stupid tragedy based on ignorance and evil.

Charles Gramlich said...

TV causes learning lags in me and I mostly watch the good channels.

Dawn (Twisted Sister) said...

That's a really good question... dogs can pretty much sniff out anything - why not Bin Ladin?

teabird said...

Let's see.... General Motors, check - check - check -


yup. All of the above.

Sheesh.

bobbie said...

What IS this thing with anti-abortionists that they can't understand that taking a life post as well as pre birth just isn't right?

I love the idea - SEND THE DOG.

May I add - I just read a great post submitted for the meme, Think Green Thursday. She suggested going to a site: poopbags.com and get some biodegradable bags for picking up after your dog. Isn't that a great idea?

Through Thick and Thin said...

Mimi - please tell Homer to stop calling Weezie at 2am. I'm getting tired of the phone calls with howling and panting on the other end.

Bond said...

Glad I could help by allowing you to vent off...

Excellent words today

Mojo said...

I always love these little vignettes.

If I didn't know better, I'd swear that was a young Tonka in the first shot. Wow.

I get lurkers from all kinds of places ... got one from Iran once even.

Trust me, if we'd really wanted bin Laden, we'd have him by now. We managed to dig up Saddam in just a few weeks, but bin Laden dead of in prison isn't scary. A bin Laden on the prowl was something the Dubya's could use to strike fear in the hearts of the citizens and gain political leverage. So why do we still not have him? Who knows. But trust me, if we really really wanted him we'd have him. Count on it.

*sigh*

Hope you're feeling better at least.

Autumn said...

I have lots I could say about all of it, but you did a much better job. So...once again: Thanks for the :)

Jean-Luc Picard said...

I wonder if the prisoners say "Can I pay for the luxuries with the money I got from robbing the bank/company/general public."?

Mimi Lenox said...

Charles - Except for a few chosen shows, it makes my brain go numb and bores me.

Mimi Lenox said...

Dawn - Exactly! They should send Paddy!

Mimi Lenox said...

Teabird - The world is a crazy place, isn't it?

Mimi Lenox said...

Bobbie - Oh poo! That's a great idea!

Mimi Lenox said...

Debbie - Their love life is really getting on my nerves. I think Homer is falling in love with her. You and I could be inlaws soon....

Mimi Lenox said...

P.S. - I'll tell him to knock it off...

Homer The Palace Dog said...

Hey Weezie! Make sure Debbie is asleep by 2 am. We have a pant date..

Mimi Lenox said...

Bond - Thanks for listening...

Mimi Lenox said...

Mojo - I thought he looked like Tonka too!

You could be right about Bin Ladin. Interesting...

Mimi Lenox said...

Autumn - Oh, don't let me stop you. Fire away.

Mimi Lenox said...

Jean-Luc - And where else would they get it? Hmmmm???

The Gal Herself said...

I think I'm for the GM bailout. Because if those jobs disappear, so do all those employee benefits, like health care. So aren't we making those trillions back in good karma, and in not absorbing the costs when these people end up in the ER with catastrophic diseases they can't afford to be treated for any other way?

Maybe not. I don't know. I don't think there IS an attractive answer to these problems. AND OBAMA WANTED THIS JOB?

Seeing Homer in love reminds me to ask, how is his social life? Does he get out on his own very often?

Mimi Lenox said...

Gal - Maybe if the GM Bailout had come BEFORE all the other disastrous and unaccountable bailouts, I'd feel differently. Maybe if I didn't see people all around me daily losing their jobs left and right, I'd feel differently.
It's all disturbing and frightening. There has to be a better solution.

Mimi Lenox said...

- Homer is doing better than I in the phone-pant department, although, I never was a fan of that.

But really. Isn't anyone interested in MY love life? The Queen has a love life ya know!!!

Sheesh.

Jamie said...

The world would be so much better off, if they just gave it to you to run properly.

You're smart enough to send the dog.

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

A lot of interesting ideas. So if the dogs play it right, will you and Debbie be inlaws?

Travis said...

But but but...I watch History programs on tv...with my laptop so I can look up stuff they tell me.

Uhm...

Ok...

My geek is showing.

♥ bfs~"Mimi" ♥ said...

For a young gal, you sure are smart!!! Enjoyed this post.

Mimi Lenox said...

Jamie - If the world could only be run with common sense at the wheel.

Mimi Lenox said...

Bud - Perhaps....

Mimi Lenox said...

Travis - That doesn't make you a geek. That makes you smart.

Mimi Lenox said...

bfs...Mimi - Nice to meet another Mimi. Welcome. And thanks.
