Post V-day, Suck Up, Alert!

As usual, my editor (see the Heron's Nest) is right.
When your wife says for Valentine's Day "let's just do cards," she's lying.
She may not even know she's lying, but she is.
Don't be fooled. I wasn't.

My present (which involved her dogs) led her to declare this, "The best Valentine's Day ever."

Tip to you girls: Guys like such fawning.

To further celebrate we watched "War of the Roses" one of the darker comedies about a failed marriage. She picked it. And later, the surprisingly good 1995 version of "Bye Bye Birdie."

This morning, I got coffee in bed and the slack to make fun of it.

"This better be Fair Trade Coffee."

For those of you not in the know, I live in (actually near) the "Fair Trade Town" of Media.

As Media's web site, advises:

"Most Fair Trade certified coffee, tea, and chocolate in the US is certified organic and shade grown. This means that the products you buy maintain biodiversity, provide shelter for migratory birds, and guarantee a future for the earth."

I say that better be a money-back guarantee.

But then I hear from the kitchen: "It's Folgers."

Oh well, men, women, dogs. That's enough biodiversity for one household.

UPDATE: Check out the logo for Fair Trade here. Do you think maybe they stole it from this Star Trek episode.

SCREW fair trade. It's a feel good program so someone can get re-elected when he/she put the info on their election propoganda. Let's focus on the growing number of kid-touchers in the 19063 ZIPcode.

As I once wrote before "Frank Daly cares more that a Kenyan makes $5 an hour for coffee sold in Media but our children are open game".

My thoughts on Frank and his followers in Media can best be described by the infamous line from cameron of "Ferris Bueller's Day off"

"Pardon my French, but you're an a$$hole!"

Libs and their misplaced sympathies and priorities strike again.

That stupid half white/half black logo person was no doubt a Lib effort designed to show that not only are they for fair wages but also for spreading the wealth among races. Libs can’t help but slip their contrived diversity horsecrap into everything.

Question: Does anyone know what unofficial day falls on March 14?

Is that "Piss On a Lib's Foot Day"?
