Hello Peeps – how are y’all doing today? I hope well. My schedule got completely turned upside down toward the end of the week and unfortunately I was unable to complete my regular (long a*s) Weekly Recap. Believe me I am just as bummed about it as you are – promise. Perhaps I will do a Monday Recap…
In any event, here is an extremely brief recap:
(1) President Barack Obama is up in the polls. Yaaay! (Huffpo)
(2) Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are still traveling the country lying every where they go. (I’m not listing a reference site because there is no need. They lie – all day, every day, everywhere they go. Period.)
(3) The Chicago Teachers Union is still on strike but negotiations are going well and it may be ending soon. (Chicago Tribune) I support them and you should as well however IF you are INFORMED about the issues and you still think they should not strike then so be it. All I ask is that you have an INFORMED OPINION ABOUT THE MATTER.
(4) Four Americans were killed in an attack on the United States Consulate in Benghazi, Libya earlier this week, including American Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens. (NYT) Anti-American protests have escalated during the week in the Middle East and chaos is quickly spreading to other areas. This is not a drill, this is real people. (NYT)
(5) The iPhone 5 is here. (Huffpo) #Ireallydontcareaboutthisatall
I will also share this video below. I posted it on my facebook page a while ago but it is so heartwarming that I had to share it again. If this doesn’t make you smile then you are dead on the inside and you should go see someone, like a doctor or a shaman, perhaps an exorcist? Whatever works man, whatever works.
Now go forth and enjoy the hell out of your weekend!!
