Other Voices | Tom Callaghan: Joe Biden – Caretaker

Posted on November 18, 2020

Joe Biden, slightly befuddled, usually successful at remembering which woman is his wife and which is his sister, often capable of detaching his facemask from his left ear, is going to take care of us for a while. Our Joe.

And, by the way, we should thank our lucky stars for that. Seriously. I mean consider the alternative. We dodged a bullet. Big time. Not just because the other guy is such a self-centered jerk, but because “taking care” is what comes natural for Joe. He’s been doing it his whole life. And, being cared for, is exactly what our country and our world need right now.

We don’t need a knight in shining armor. We need care and healing, literally and figuratively. We need someone we can trust.

“Caretaker” is not exactly what most politicians, on the make, aspire to be. You know the type. Hard chargers, who point with pride and view with alarm. They dominate debates with cut and thrust. They aspire to be transcendent actors on the world stage and practice their slow walk strut before full length mirrors. That’s not Joe at all. The other guy, no briefing books please, he’s practicing his strut and fist pump.

Joe is no silver-tongued snake oil salesman. He’s more like your favorite uncle who always seems happy to see you. His most memorable line in umpteen Democratic debates was “I see I’m out of time” which he used three times. Whatever he said before he became “out of time” was, and is, entirely forgettable.

Yet, another reason to thank our lucky stars. Continue Reading……

Very little will render us speechless…..(Updated)

But this sure did.

A pretty bold billboard considering this is less than a month old:

Judge removes Scott Walker as manager of dad’s finances over ‘misspending’ ~ Anita Lee

So you have it folks, Scott mismanaged his parent’s finances, got himself out of trouble while putting his Dad on the chopping block for another prison stint and the gang is evidently loud and proud of that fact.

To hell with the politics….

It’s getting to where someone can’t comment on government waste without a bunch of snowflakes melting down:

Joe Buck, Troy Aikman Were the Victims of an Inside Job ~ Jimmy Traina

This was done before the game, during a rehearsal. That means someone who works at FOX, either in a truck or a broadcast studio, pulled the clip on purpose and then leaked it on purpose to make Buck and Aikman look bad. And the fact that one of their co-workers would leak this clip to make the broadcast duo look bad really sucks.

You can be sure Fox is doing some sort of internal investigation to find the culprit.

Someone on the Fox Sports football crew isn’t a team player or as an old high school coach used to tell the team, “someone is pissing in the drinking water”.

As for Aikman’s opinion that spending big $$$$s doing jet flyovers of nearly empty stadiums is a bad idea, the facts support his read. I have this from the 2019 Heritage Foundation Military Assessment:

It is exactly days like today…

That make me wonder if Karma truly does exist in this world. Here is a small sample:

Rudy Giuliani faces questions after compromising scene in new Borat film ~

The only thing creepier than seeing Giuliani without his dentures on hanging under the desk at the oval office last year on South Park was the screen capture of him playing with himself on a hotel bed floating around on Twitter today.

Worshiping Republican Jesus at OLG in the Bay…….

They call election time the silly season for a reason. My own opinion is Mike is one of the Pharisee Hypocrites that Classic Jesus warns everyone about in the good book. In these polarizing times I’m sure there are those that would beg to differ.

My Dad was a very simple man in respects who did not have a high school diploma but he came up in a much different time joining the Marines at age 16 during the Second World War. On his deathbed he explained why he had two ministers coming in to check on him one being a Marine Corps Chaplin that would later officiate his funeral. “Never trust a preacher that sells more than salvation” he explained to me why he wanted the Marine Corps Chaplin instead of his family’s Baptist minister. That piece of wisdom has stuck with me ever since.

The reasons for the decline in U.S. Catholicism and Christianity can be traced.
