So, Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) is going to resign. Who did not see this coming?? I mean really, when you have members of your own party - members who themselves should have been kicked out long ago - demanding his resignation, you're pretty much sunk. And so are his plans on becoming the mayor of New York City. But, then again, this is NYC we are talking about. They might want him anyway.
No big surprise here. But I have to wonder why Pelosi wants Weiner to resign over this distasteful scandal while she stays in office after denigrating so many Americans who were voicing their opinions (which is the right of every American, Ms Nancy).
Speaking of distasteful scandals, come on Vancouver Canucks fans and residents, what the hell was that all about??!? I mean, I am from Philly and I know about disappointment and passionate fandom. But really, rioting??
When teams like those in Detroit win and fans go nuts causing all kinds of damage in their "enthusiasm" is bad enough. But to riot (a second time) when your team loses game seven of a playoff and thus the championship? You are sad, sad little people for all that nonsense. It is time to taker into perspective the really important things in life. Rioting because your government is murdering its citizens is reasonable. Taking to the street over racial and human rights barbarism is understandable (though violence is not really the answer there). But to freak out so badly because a sports team loses their try for a championship is ludicrous.
Canucks fans should be absolutely ashamed of themselves. Vancouver residents should be ashamed. Canadiens need to reflect on what is important. Family, friends, health, faith, life and so many other things should take precedence over a stupid thing as a sporting event.
Shame on you Weiner, shame on you "San Fran Nan" Pelosi and shame on you rioters in vancouver.
As usual, agree or disagree. Do skin off my nose. Just as long as you use that grey matter between your ears and think, I have done my job. Either way, this is just me, Thinking out Loud.
Have a great, safe and blessed day.
