Goodness knows who that boy is, but we wish he'd just get the heck out of yard this morning, before we've even had a chance to mix up our noon bloody marys.
Yes, we heard Congressman Posey speak yesterday. We saw several local politicians attending and appreciated the few that stayed around to speak with folks. We noticed some, like Miss Carole Jean Jordan and Commissioner Solari and Sheriff Deryl Loar leavin early, but we're sure they had important business to attend to, now that they're in office, right?
And yes everyone expects some sort of political comment from Miss Vero, but no, we are not going to say a word.
Why? Well, since y'all asked...
Miss Vero is just dog tired of it all, maybe it's just us. We are as tired of the Democrats printin monopoly money and handin it out willy-nilly, just as we were tired of the Republicans printin out the same pretend money for their no-bid contract profiteering war. And then we are tired of each side pointin fingers at the other.
We often wonder, why is it that the same people who say "God Bless America!" are the first one's to exclude many Americans from that blessing.
And why is it that God should bless America and not the whole world? If y'all believe in that mumbo-jumbo-bible-hocus-pocus and read it, like y'all say y'all do, did y'all happen to skip that part where God created the world, the whole world and not just a well defined portion in North America?
"Because I believe we live in the GREATEST COUNTRY ON EARTH!" Yes, that always gets the applause, doesn't it? And every politician makes sure to make that statement. Is it because they believe it? Or, is the sound of applause really the pay off?
When we hear a politician, any politician, we always wonder if they are truly tryin to help us, or if it is just the popularity contest they seek and then we remember somethin about power that our Daddy used to say - "Anybody that wants to carry a gun and tell other folks want to do, shouldn't be allowed to".
We're sure if we lived in Sweden (and it seemed that Mr. Posey has some sort of fascination with Sweden, cause he mentioned it many times), we would think that Sweden is the Greatest Country on Earth.
And yes we get it, we're bloggin well within our first amendment rights, so the irony is not lost on us.
But as we said, we are weary.
We've been trying to get everyone in Vero to get along. Miss Vero does not know just how many times we can ask y'all to calm down, pour a cocktail and try to not be so hateful to one another. And for goodness sakes, if y'all don't have a sense of humor, we'll lend you ours! Because when we are divided we are conquered. Red, Blue, Black, White, Christian and Atheist, Muslim, Jews, Gay and Straight, 32963 and the PJ, Blessed Americans and everyone else, how can we all coexist?
We suppose what this planet really needs is a good ole Alien Attack! That sure would put everything in perspective right quick, now wouldn't it?
Oh, and a little TANG in our martini wouldn't hurt either!
