A Few Thoughts to End (or start) The Week

It seems that Young Anthony is getting in even more hot water. Some new photographs of Tony have apparently surfaced that show a good deal more than earlier. It is alleged that the photos in question were taken at a govt facility. I would say that this Weiner's wiener is cooked. Even that psycho Pelosi is calling for him to go. It has been an amusing ride no doubt but still one has to feel sorry (sorta) for those close to this little screecher of a man.

It seems that the U.S. govt is investigating "for profit" schools. We all know that there are some that are little more than scams but there are indeed those that are  excellent institutions and deliver a pretty good bang for the buck. For instance I received a degree in History from the American Public University System, which is for profit, and found the instruction to be more in depth and  "real world" than any of the traditional schools I attended. It took me near twenty years to finally get that degree and I am proud of it. Unfortunately there are bad apples out there. University of Phoenix has a bad rep but really is probably fairly decent albeit overpriced. AIU and Devry have their place also. Part of the problem is of course that some in traditional education are feeling the heat of competition. Since a great many in higher education have no understanding of (or hate) the free market, it is not surprising that they would be crying foul.

I did not know that the regular old light bulbs have already been banned from being sold in the California Peoples Republic. Perhaps I am mistaken here. Time to stock up for the rest of us. I have mine and they should last for quite a number of years. I suggest you do the same unless you just want to pay more. This is stupidity run amok.

I have been thinking about instituting a "rule five" program on my blog. Cheap trick to build traffic perhaps, but "when in Rome...."

Pretty soon it will be time to begin some work on my "expert" (lol) analysis of college football. The "bibles" are already out in the local green grocers. I will be making a purchase directly and see where I land at the end of the season. Last year I was just about as accurate as many of those handicappers who charge for service. Anyway, if so inclined, keep an eye out at my college football blog. Or not. I don't give a rusty.....
I will mention this to start the season. Jim is gone at Ohio State. Keenum is back behind center at the University of Houston and Rice football players were arrested recently. Predictions on this; U of H will be a top twenty team. Rice will have a winning season and Ohio State will fall to the irrelevance that those programs in the "Big Ten" deserve. Rice may well be getting finally serious about building a winning program. Dopers and thugs on a team make for winning records.
Oh and f... you Nebraska.

It is about time to refill my electronic cigarette cartridge. I have cut down on my smoking of "real" cigarettes a good deal and attribute this to faux product. Now (of course) there is an effort to "ban" these devices. Ask any doctor and they will likely tell you that anything, I mean anything, is better than smoking the real thing. It is not about "health and safety" after all. It has to do with tax revenue.

Just a few thoughts.......

My wife, a smoker, also is happy with her e-cigarette which she bought in Vegas this past Spring Break. Could even smoke on the plane on the way home and nobody give her crap about it. Anytime - anywhere - pretty hip.

You know the problem with those E Cigs. Money. Fed/States don't get tobacco taxes from them so there are concerns over their safety and they may need to be banned...for your health you understand.

What BS...
