Time Travel, Jesse Ventura, and America the Beautiful

Time Travel, Jesse Ventura, and America the Beautiful February 7, 2014 at 11:11am I did my "I can travel into the future" joke in my composition class the other day at MCC. We were talking about writing about concepts and the concepts of time and time travel came up. So I said to my class that I could prove that I could travel 15 seconds into the future. I had my class count aloud for fifteen seconds as I stood there. "One, two, three, four, ...... fourteen, fifteen." " There," I said when they reached fifteen, "I did it!" I got one or two rolling of the eyes, and a couple of smiles......... as usual. I said I could also travel farther into the future but that it takes longer. On Obamacare, the Congressional Budget Office report said among other things that Obamacare would create jobs, insure millions of Americans, reduce the deficit, and lower the unemployment rate. Outraged Republicans vowed to fight. Republicans, having had their panties in a bunch when a lot of peoples' insurance plans were cancelled but most of whom ended up with better plans for less money, are now trying in Arkansas to take away insurance for about 85,000 poor Arkansans by taking away their private insurance policies under the Medicaid Expansion part of Obamacare. Republicans continue to plot how to take away insurance from about 25 million Americans who now have insurance coverage under Obamacare............................. Breaking News - McDonald's has released a video that reveals its Chicken McNuggetts are in fact made out of............................chicken. Who'd uh thought. The Sochi Olympic games have started and the death toll has reached about 35 so far. "Not bad," said Russian President Putin. It also turns out that Russia has installed security cameras in hotel bathrooms with views of showers. Weird. And Pat Robertson, of all people, says Christians who believe the earth is 6,000 years old are a "joke." This is from the guy who says God sends hurricanes as punishment...... Watching various Tea Party candidates start their campaigns, I think their problem is they don't realize they are nuts. And speaking of nuts: Former wrestler, movie actor, body guard for the Rolling Stones, and later Governor of Minnesota, Jesse Ventura, is currently hiding out in Mexico so military drones won't find and kill him. Sounds like Obamacare is to blame for sure. Re. the Superbowl Coke Ad that has many conservative panties in a bunch. Why are you so shocked that so many people who speak different languages love America? Isn't that what it's all about? (Aside - Wait til they figure out that "America the Beautiful" was written by a lesbian feminist and the Pledge of Allegiance by a socialist.) ps. Happy Together is booked for June 17 at Lauritzen Gardens as part of their Tuesday nights Tempo of Twilight series. Stay tuned for details.
