Didja hear?

President Obama and the US Congress were run out of office on Friday.  Yeah, by “10 to 30 million like-minded Americans.”

Retired Col. Harry Riley called it the Second American Revolution, where at least 10 million people descended on Washington D.C. determined to clog the city until the present administration resigned and left office.

You didn’t hear about it?  Well, of course not.

Because much like Harold Camping’s apocalyptic predictions of 1994 and May & October of 2011, this Second American Revolution was an abject failure.

Reports on Saturday had the attendance somewhere around 500.  No, no, no, not 500 million.  Just a plain and simple 500.  Half of a thousand, which is 5 hundred-thousandths of the minimum prediction.

Let’s see; 500 ÷ 10,000,000 … mmmm, move the decimal over two. Hey, that’s .005%, or 5 thousandths of a percent of the backing good ol’ Harry thought he had.

Now, much like Camping’s end of the world (hey; Harold Camping, Harry Riley. mmmmm) Riley would not admit how much of a failure his prediction was.  No, no, no.  The latest news is that this whole “Operation American Spring” was conjured up by the liberal left to make the Teabillys look bad.

Ha, like they need any help!

‘Tis the season…

that time to post here is rare for me.

18 days of school left, and everything was pushed back several weeks because of the fire and being unable to use the auditorium, so I have even less time than usual. And I’m more exhausted than usual.

See ya on the other side.

Just a drummer in a rock & roll band…

I had my musical debut today as a drummer in a band called “The Fab 9.5”.

It took some intensive practice (one lesson from an ex-student and 6, count them s-i-x, rehearsals), some serious interviewing (“Will you?”, “But I never played before.”, “That’s ok, the backup singers never sang before, the lead guitarist never lead before and the lead singer is hoarse from the play.”, “Oh, what the heck.  Ok.”), and a major make-over (a wig and a tie) and we finally got our first gig in front of a paying (if you consider captive as paying) audience.

We rocked.  We brought down the house.  We won the competition; which was easy considering this was all for the announcement assembly for the next year’s Student Body Officers, and the script called for us to win.

If you take into account the group consisted of the poor band teacher stuck with two math teachers, a French, Spanish, science, history, drama and English teacher and the school Librarian, we pulled off a pretty good rendition of “Twist and Shout”.

Yeah, well, at least the kids loved it, probably more for the fun of watching teachers make fools of themselves, but it was a lot of fun for us anyway.  And I got to be a drummer in a rock and roll band.  One more thing checked off the bucket list.
