Random thoughts

I’ve been thinking about some things lately.

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) says, “it’s time for a new president.”  Does he NOT know that no matter who wins in 2016, we will have a new president?  That’s not a reason to vote for him, that’s just the 22nd amendment in action.  This is what happens when we have politicians who didn’t get a BA.  Yes, Scott Walker, I’m looking at you.

Why do we keep talking about the nuclear deal with Iran and the way Congress reacts as being good or bad “for Obama“?  The last time I checked, we all benefit from not having a nuclear war anywhere on earth.  I’m no military or science expert but having fewer nuclear weapons on the planet seems like a good idea.

We were not the only nation negotiating with Iran.  We think we are the center of the universe; we’re not.  The US Senate can totally reject the deal but that doesn’t mean it will die.  Seriously, other countries have a say here.

Why do journalists refuse to use verbs?  When you add “ing” to a verb, it becomes a noun (the gerund).  Stop it!  Use a damn verb.  And to think, you people are supposed to be good with language.

Note to Rolling StoneYou need to apologize to every woman who reports a rape and is called a liar.  Your story did more to damage their credibility than you can possibly know. Your failure to fact check hurt so many people, your reporter’s failure to do her job and her non-apology makes me think she really doesn’t understand the extent of her misdeeds, she needs to be fired.  Oh and to Sabrina Rubin Erdely, if you think anything you ever write again will be taken seriously, you are either insane or on crack.  Sickening.

Anyway.  And please, please, please check out The Random Journal.
