Do Elders Gain Rosier Memories with Age?

Sunday Serendipity: 28 December 2008

category_bug_politics.gif Well, Elder News didn't happen this weekend; I just got busy with other stuff yesterday. It will resume on 3 January in the new year.

Today, there is this sent by email from Chancy of driftwoodinspiration. A couple of weeks ago, there was much in the news about George Bush’s new home in Dallas which, they tell us, is just down the road a bit from where his presidential library will be. So lest we forget, this is sneak peek at its contents.

The George W. Bush Presidential Library is now in the planning stages. The Library will include:

The Weapons of Mass Destruction Room which no one has yet been able to find.

The Hurricane Katrina Room which is still under construction.

The Alberto Gonzales Room where you won't be able to remember anything.

The Texas Air National Guard Room where you don't even have to show up.

The Walter Reed Hospital Room where they don't let you in.

The Guantanamo Bay Room where they don't let you out.

The National Debt Room which is huge and has no ceiling.

The Tax Cut Room with entry restricted to the wealthy.

The Economy Room which is in the toilet.

The Iraq War Room: After you complete your first tour, they make you go back for a second, third, fourth and sometimes fifth tour.

The Dick Cheney Room in the famous undisclosed location, complete with shotgun gallery.

The Environmental Conservation Room still empty, but very warm.

The Supreme Court Gift Shop where you can buy an election.

The Decider Room complete with dart board, magic 8-ball, Ouija board, dice, coins and straws.

Additionally, the museum will have a 20-electron microscope to help you locate the president's accomplishments.

Admission: Republicans - free; Democrats - $1000 or 3 Euros


That is the funniest thing I've read in yarons!

Thanks, Ronni, and best wishes for another year's worth of great blog posts.

Maybe we should all get together and give the president one of those electron microscopes as a parting gift. He needs it in his effort to tout his accomplishments as he leaves office. Most of us certainly can't see them.

EXCELLENT!! I think he spends most of his time in the decider room anyway.

I love your blogs. I should be polite and comment more. This one is hilarious.

Funny but sad. Christpher Buckley said, "The only people people gaining from this are the heirs of James Buchanan previously thought to be the worst president we've had." I think he had it right.

This is really funny, Ronni. Thanks for brightening my day, yet again! Hope you have a wonderful 2009. Keep on bloggin'. Dee

How about the Civil Liberties Room where you shouldn't say anything because it's bugged?

Yep, very funny. Then there's this item which has circulated via e-mail:

Dear World:

The United States of America, for over 200 years your high-quality supplier of the ideals of liberty and democracy, would like to apologize for its 2001 to 2008 service outage.

The technical fault that led to this eight-year service interruption has been located, and the parts responsible for it were replaced Tuesday night,
November 4.

Early tests of the newly installed equipment indicate that it is functioning correctly, and we expect it to be fully functional by mid-January.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the outage, and we look forward to resuming full service -- and hopefully even to improving it in years to come. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Dubya genuinely and deeply doesn't give a damn what the likes of us think of him. He doesn't even know what we think because we can't get his attention. It has been impossible for us or for anyone to help him, to guide him, or to suggest things to him. In the end, it has been impossible even to insult him. He doesn't listen because he doesn't even hear.

Our concerns, our alarm, even our outrage have been to him nothing more than distant buzzing in the background of his life—rather like the muttering of disgruntled servants who had better shape up if they don't want to find themselves fired.


Now that is funny. In fact it made my day....

Too true! Have a Happy New Year, Ronni.

I agree with Pete...very funny and let's hope President Obama can really change things...HAPPY NEW YEAR AND STAY HEALTHY, RONNI - I need your words of wisdom
