Paul Murphy is Dismembering a Dead Hooker and Needs Some Assistance!


Actually, that’s not true, but if I were I bet I could get a lot of Mafia Wars players to help me out. Those guys will do anything!

In fact I’m taking apart several downed trees on our Pennsylvania farmette (a “farmette” is like a farm, except that it doesn’t get any government assistance and produces only vast quantities of poop). We lost three big trees in our front lawn during this last round of winter storms, and now that the weather has improved I’m trying to deal with ‘em. I plan to get rid of all of the smaller branches myself with my limb lopper, then take apart the medium stuff with my trusty ripsaw. I may need to hire some even manlier dude to take care of the trunks, but we’ll see. I have plans.*

One of three extremely dead trees on Chez Murphy-Postma.

The whole thing is kind of depressing. These were huge trees, some 50 feet in height. They looked like they were in fine shape, and then one day – *splat* – they fell over and they couldn’t get up, ever again. (I’m sure it’s a metaphor for something political, but I can’t figure out what.) I’ve been hacking away at one tree for about five hours, and the poor thing looks like a flensed whale.

Speaking of healthcare (which I wasn’t), I watched “Meet the Press” today. Lindsay Graham was on, and he was spouting the standard company line that President Obama has turned into a raving socialist who forced a radical left-wing healthcare bill through Congress, aided and abetted by Comrades Pelosi and Reid. The Republicans wanted to help craft a bi-partisan bill, said Graham, but the Democrats were implacably determined to ram their Marxist agenda down the throats of the American people. Later on one of the panelists (it may have been Doris Kearns Goodwin, who is totally hot) noted that Obama’s bill was slightly to the right of the one that President Nixon had put forward some 30 years ago. But why let facts interfere with a good talking point?

Doris Kearns Goodwin lending some class to a recent episode of "The Daily Show".

Anyway, time will tell whether the American people continue to buy the Republican line or if they figure out that the sky hasn’t actually fallen and that many of them are actually better off than they were before the bill. Even if the Reps do win big in November, it’s unlikely that they’ll get a big enough majority to actually overturn the bill, or that they’d have the guts to rescind something that actually benefit so many voters.

Which is good, because I’m taking my chainsaw in to be sharpened this week, and the “no pre-existing conditions” mandate may be of some importance to me down the line.

Vrrrrrrroooooooommm!

    I AM TELLING YOU WIFE!

      Great. Now I have some weirdo who eats cats narking on me. What the hell is wrong with you people on the Internet?!?

  2. Doris "Bambi" Goodwin Says:

    I heard on the radio that nationwide healthcare was first proposed by presidential candidate Teddy Roosevelt, the well-known socialist and vegetarian. He didn’t win that time, so he dropped it from his later platforms. So, the wacko Left was clearly plotting this scheme from way back.

    • Paul Murphy Says:

      Sheesh, was Roosevelt a lefty? I had no idea! I assumed he was some kind of monarchist or something. Well, live and learn…
