Ruminations of a Semi-Old Fart

Politics

NAIROBI (AFP) – Women’s activist groups in Kenya have called for a seven-day sex ban on the country’s men in an attempt to shock the political class into overcoming bitter feuds and working together.

          And I was at the point where I believed there wasn’t any way to get politicians to straighten up their act.

 

Religion

          The fact that partisanship is bad for the country should be obvious: look what it has done to the church.

Swine Flu

“I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out then under another Democrat president Jimmy Carter. And I’m not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it’s an interesting coincidence.” – Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann

          What’s really interesting is the fact that she actually got re-elected.

Birthdays

I share the same birthday as Willie and so I leave you with his words.

Don’t be ashamed of your age
Don’t let the years get you down
That old gang you knew
They still think of you
As a rounder in your old home town

Don’t mind the grey in your hair
Just think of the fun you had puttin’ it there
And as for that old book of time
Boy, you never skipped a page
So, don’t be ashamed of your age
Brother, don’t be ashamed of your age

Now, listen Mr Smith and Mr Brown
Don’t let the years get you down
‘Cause life ain’t begun until you’re forty some
That’s when you really start to go to town
Now don’t wish that you were a lad
Why boy, you’ve lost more girls
Than they’ve ever had
And once more you’ve graduated
From that ol’ stubborn stage
So, don’t be ashamed of your age
Brother, don’t be ashamed of your age

          Don’t Be Ashamed Of Yor Age – Willie Nelson
