Left Overs

Welcome to a new feature on the blog, which I call Left Overs. (Get the pun?)  I’d like to think of it as a hodge-podge of topics I feel are still important, but because of time constraints, just couldn’t get around to writing about.

Instead of the usual full-length feature, topics chosen will be short and concise.  Kinda like CNN Headline News, for those who don’t have time to endure whatever it is that CNN actually does for a living.

Chick-Fil-A Controversy:  It comes down to this: two wrongs don’t make a right.  You don’t like the intolerance and bigotry of a business, you boycott it.  What you don’t do is ban it from setting up shop in your neighborhood.  Thanks to the nitwits in Boston and Chicago, what could’ve been a moral victory for same-sex proponents, has now been coopted by anti-gay activists who have somehow managed to garner sympathy for their myopic cause.  Nice goin’ guys!

Shepard Smith Criticizing Chick-Fil-A on Fox News: Does somebody want to break the news to poor old Shep that he works for Roger Ailes?  I hope his resume is up to date.

The Grover Norquist / Frank Gaffney Food Fight: How cynical must I be to actually be enjoying this?  I mean one guy is a cancer in American politics and has all but kidnapped the majority of his party; the other is a myopic Islamophobe who makes Donald Trump look legit.  It’s kinda like watching Mussolini and Hitler in a wrestling match.

Harry Reid Calls Out Mitt Romney on His Tax Returns:  Either Reid knows something, or he's betting that Romney won't call his bluff, or he's a world-class idiot.  Only time will tell.  If it’s either of the first two then Romney is toast; if it’s the latter, the Senate Majority Leader may have just given the White House to Thurston Howell III.

One interesting point somebody made in an editorial I read about Reid's remarks: Romney could effectively DESTROY Reid if he proved him wrong in any potential tax return release, but he still refuses. Does this mean he has something to hide?
