No privilege exists that is not inseparably bound to a duty - Pierre Samuel Dupont

In a reflective mood, I am focusing on the XFactor tv program. It was the most over produced show in the history of television.Billed as a singing competition, it was more a show for halftime of the superbowl.When the contestants sang, there was a group of dancers cavorting on stage with flashing lights and sounds similar to a fourth of July celebration.
The judges seemed to outdo each other with praise of the last group of performers. Truly the level of the twelve finalists was perhaps the best since the inception of the program.
Who was the idiot who decided to have the three finalists sing a duet with an established performer and then have a judge state the contestant was nervous.Duh!Feedback welcomed

Social Security

People have a right to look forward to retirement and not worry about what is going to happen to themselves if Social Security is reformed and benefits reduced.
Therefore, it is imperative that we notify our members of Congress to take Social Security off budget to prevent Congress from taking money from the Social Security fund and then tell recipients that there are no funds for cost of living adjustments and other benefits.
This affects every one of us.
To write to your members of Congress address your letter to:
The Honorable [Full name]
U.S. House of Representatives
Washington, D.C. 20515
To reach your Senator, The Honorable [full name]
U.S.Senate,Washington, D.C. 20510

To call, the number is 1 202 225 3121 and tell the operator who answers to connect you to your
representative in Congress and the two U.S.Senators.

I suggest the US suspends all payments to foreign countries and use the money to help rebuild the areas devastated by tornadoes, floods and earthquakes in our own country.

Baseball--is it really a walk-off hit or a home run?


Who is the idiot who coined the term walk-off for a winning hit or home run? Where is the walkoff feature when a winning team gathers together on the field to celebrate a win for several minutes? Let's get back to describe a game the way it is and call it a winning hit or home run.
Comments welcome.
