Matty’s Corralled Thoughts

A trillion dollar coin

Washington elites are looking into the 2009 idea, of Georgia blogger only known as “Beowulf”, of releasing a trillion dollar coin, made of  platinum. No point in obtaining a trillion dollars worth of platinum. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is warming up to it. The idea being the treasury could create and issue the commemorative coin and arbitrary declare it to be worth a trillion or bazillion dollars thus we can borrow, avoid the debt ceiling and bankruptcy. Zimbabwe here we come. Let’s use some of that money to buy magic beans first.  This idea should make my Franklin Mint issued Star Trek plates very very valuable.

Even without Al Gore visiting on his private jet, Jerusalem received a paralyzing snowstorm (4-6 inches) this week. It has been around 20 years since the elders could remember such a snowfall. Could they be frozen tears of God who is laughing about someone for Al-Jazeera paying the former Vice President and ecologist around $500 million for his tv network?

Hey Palestinians, throw snowballs not rocks & gernades

Academy Award nominations were handed out this week with the Steven Spielberg directed movie “Lincoln” receiving 12 nods. Co-host Seth Mcfarlane made news when announcing the Foreign Film category’s pick of Amour. Said McFarlane “”The last time Austria and Germany co-produced something, it was Hitler.” He later took to Twitter to apologize and offered a solution. he said Austria “we will give you the Oscar if you take back Arnold”. Spielberg’s Lincoln has been criticized as being a dangerous, inaccurate and insidious portrayal of one of the nations greatest presidents(sorry Libs it was not Bill Clinton portrayed by Johnny Depp in the movie “Blow“). We did a movie review some time ago for “Lincoln”. I hope that criticism wasn’t meant for “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”, because there is a slight difference in both historical movies. The low information voter could easily confuse the two.

Four score and seven vampires ago...

Speaking of taken someone back- could CNN’s foreign import and ratings anchor (782,000 viewers- a little more than a spray on hair infomercial)Piers Morgan be a man without a country? It seems all of his anti-gun comments have prompted over 120,000 people to sign a petition to deport the British agitator. Meanwhile, the United Kingdom started their own petition that they did not want him back. They still harbor some bad feelings about his journalistic integrity being compromised when he illegally wired tapped British leaders and celebrities. The  US petition needed only 25,000 signatures for the White House to investigate. Obama finally came to his rescue and dismissed it. Just like a groundhog seeing its shadow- we have many more months of Piers Morgan.  Incidentally, the year both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union address will occur on the same day.
