Wednesday Wipe-Out

Reading the news feeds, there's nothing there that gets me worked up.  Our President flew to Afghanistan and met with the leadership there.  He and Karzai signed an accord to sign an agreement to sign a treaty, but there doesn't seem to be anything there.  It looks like another campaign trip undertaken at the expense of the American taxpayer.   He never used the word Victory.  That's not strange, because he doesn't care about victory in the Afghan sense, only in the sense of his getting re-elected.  I intend to do everything in my power to deny him the opportunity to use the word in that sense.

There's some kerfluffle about a girlfriend that Obama wrote about in his book.  He told an interviewer that she didn't really exist, yanno, in the actual girlfriend sense, she was just a composite of several girlfriends that he had in the past.  I don't really give a damn about his girlfriend, I still want to know about the dog he ate.  Was that a specific dog, in the dog sense, or was that a composite dog, kind of like a casserole?  Inquiring minds and all that.  How many dogs did he actually eat.  Count the tails, or count the legs and divide by four.

Locally, I see that the School Board voted to not renew the Superintendent's contract.  He's been there for 10 years and doing a pretty good job, although he has pissed off some folks.  I'm sure that his detractors are pleased, but this is just the opening volley, and the fat lady hasn't sung yet.  It's going to be an interesting summer around the School Board offices.

Finally, the Daily Wipe is reporting that the Legislature is moving on a constitutional amendment to stengthen the rights of Louisiana gun owners. The text of the proposed amendment reads as follows:
“The right of individuals to acquire, keep, possess, transport, carry, transfer, and use arms for defense of life and liberty, and for all other legitimate purposes is fundamental and shall not be denied or infringed, and any restriction on this right must be subjected to strict scrutiny.”
Strict scrutiny.  I like that.  It's a pretty big hurdle for the gun-banners and shows that Louisiana is on the side of gun rights.  It'll also keep the Courts away from our gun rights.

Other than that, I stopped on the way home and picked up a couple of baking potatoes and some of the finest little select filet's you've ever seen.  They are marinating right now and as soon as Milady gets home, we'll fire off the grill.
