Pastor Bob from our local ELCA congregation posted this on Facebook earlier in the week and it was so good that I had to share it.
I have dealt with these same kinds of calls from the same guys (judging by the statement in the credits). I don’t mind someone calling me from time to time, but the guys from BlueFish are on my permanent ban list. I won’t even consider reviewing their materials anymore just based on past experiences with pushy sales people.
Shifting gears to humor in politics, Obama finally accepted his award for “transparency” which is already loaded with irony and basically a joke; but he managed to make it even more of joke by accepting it in private behind closed doors. It was so unbelievable that one of my Facebook friends (and probably others) were questioning if this was some kind of early April Fools joke. It isn’t; at least no more so that most of the rest of what passes for our obambulating presidency these days. The only thing funnier about it was the White House statement:
“This president has demonstrated a commitment to transparency and openness that is greater than any administration has shown in the past, and he’s been committed to that since he ran for President and he’s taken a significant number of measures to demonstrate that,” Carney said on March 16. No word yet on what the White House will say now that the award has been given – behind closed doors.
Last but not least, for a little more levity in your day check out the lineup of posts over at SBC Voices for today. Dave is out of the gate with a fantastic offer to start the day and I have a good feeling about the other posts in the lineup for later as well (warning lots of inside SBC type humor will be on tap).
