Memorial Day Madness- OPEN THREAD

So my summer is off to a rather rocky start. While taking down part of the deck in my backyard this afternoon, to comply with one of 17 violations the Suffolk County Buildings Department found in my house thanks to my next door neighbor calling them because she’s upset we’re a bunch of liberal cat-haters or whatever, my dad suffered a heart attack and was rushed to the hospital.

My dad is a former US Air Force pilot and has always been in good shape. He looks like hell. Luckilly, he’s ok and can come home tomorrow…but he almost doesn’t want to come home. In response, I’m trying to get my mother from choking our neighbor to death. She saw her pull out of her driveway this afternoon when we got back from the hospital and i had all to do to keep her from going over there and punching her lights out. I’m staying at the rents place for the weekend and I’m seriously consider taking some revenge tactics like filling my neighbor’s mailbox with bleach or something, because I’m just that pissed.

What are you up to this weekend?

    If Glenn Beck was my dad, I’d kill him, punch my mother in the face, and then kill myself.  Mega-Douche:

    BECK: (imitating Malia) Daddy? Daddy? Daddy, did you plug the hole yet? Daddy?

    PAT GRAY (co-host): (imitating Obama) No I didn’t, honey.

    BECK: (imitating Malia) Daddy, I know you’re better than [unintelligible]

    GRAY: (imitating Obama) Mm-hmm, big country.

    BECK: (imitating Malia) And I was wondering if you’ve plugged that hole yet.

    GRAY: (imitating Obama) Honey, not yet.

    BECK: (imitating Malia) Why not, daddy? But daddy–

    GRAY: (imitating Obama) Not time yet, honey. Hasn’t done enough damage.

    BECK: (imitating Malia) Daddy?

    GRAY: (imitating Obama) Not enough damage yet, honey.

    BECK: (imitating Malia) Daddy?

    GRAY: (imitating Obama) Yeah?

    BECK: (imitating Malia) Why do you hate black people so much?

    GRAY: (imitating Obama) I’m part white, honey.

    BECK: (imitating Malia) What?

    GRAY: (imitating Obama) What?

    BECK: (imitating Malia) What’d you say?

    GRAY: (imitating Obama) Excuse me?

    BECK: (laughing) This is such a ridiculous — this is such a ridiculous thing that his daughter– (imitating Malia) Daddy?

    GRAY: It’s so stupid.

    BECK: How old is his daughter? Like, thirteen?

    GRAY: Well, one of them’s, I think, thirteen, one’s eleven, or something.

    BECK: “Did you plug the hole yet, daddy?” Is that’s their — that’s the level of their education, that they’re coming to — they’re coming to daddy and saying ‘Daddy, did you plug the hole yet?’ ” Plug the hole!

    GRAY: (imitating Obama) Yes, I was doing some deep-sea diving yesterday, and–

    BECK: (imitating Malia) Daddy?

    GRAY: (imitating Obama) Yeah, mm-hmm, mm-hmm, I was doing–

    BECK: (imitating Malia) Why–

    GRAY: (imitating Obama) Yeah, honey, I’m–

    BECK (imitating Malia) Why, why, why, why, do you still let the polar bears die? Daddy, why do you still let Sarah Palin destroy the environment? Why are — Daddy, why don’t you just put her in some sort of a camp?

    I also hope you can bring the temperature down. I’d be pissed too, but the anger will get you nowhere. Somtimes you gotta step back and measure the cost.

    Not trying to preach, hope things calm down and your dad recovers.

    Saw this photo and headline over at HuffPo:

    The Rest Of The World Is Taking On Big Banks — Why Not The U.S.?


    Obviously, the answer has something to do w/ Tim Geithner’s Jazz Hands. I don’t know enough about TARP, bailouts, and all the financial stuff to determine if Geithner is the froo-it of the deb-eel, but boy do they ever villify this guy.

    What are you up to this weekend?  

    I’m only slightly embarrassed to admit that I’m still in my pajamas from … Friday night.  🙂

    It’s my first two-day weekend in a month and I’m being lazy.  Gonna get dressed in a few minutes, though.  Even I have my limits (plus I need to go to the grocery store).
