Whose Smarter Than A Fifth Grader?

Every so often I read something in the paper that leaves me scratching my head. This morning I saw this in the Post Gazette. Fayette County Commissioners agreed to sponsor a 15 Million dollar federal loan application to 84 Lumber. At first glance. No biggie. Then I'm like "wait a minute, isn't the owner of 84 Lumber, Joe Hardy, a Fayette County Commissioner?" Is there something I'm not seeing here? Did he just vote to give himself a 15 million dollar loan from us, the taxpayers?

I don't know, maybe I'm just stupid or something. This seems crazy to me. Maybe Joe Harding should try limiting his divorces from baby girls to one a year. They must be draining him of his money. Or maybe he could sell a plane or exotic animal or something.

So whose smarter than a fifth grader? Apparently not me because this just seems stupid!!

Just askin'

Speaking of being stupid. How about these four Mensa's. Holy Shit. Who was their leader, Snookie? Hopefully Penn Hills School teachers union solved their contract disputes. This does nothing to help their case!

OMG, I just Googled "stupid looking Mafia" for a picture to go with this post. Urban Dictionary was the first link to pop up. Look at Urban Dictionaries #2 definition of Gangsta. Perfect. No picture needed.

Maybe It's Just Me????

I mean really, what the fuck? A person gets nominated for a Presidential Medal of Freedom because he coaches a bunch of kids in a football game.

Chuck Noll said in his press conference when he announced he was retiring from coaching the Steelers, "It's time for me to get on with my life's work." (Or something like that) What he meant was there are things in life that are way more important than coaching football. It's not brain surgery for cryin' out loud.

I don't know, maybe it's just me. But who in their right mind would put Joe Paterno in the same category as Dr. Martin Luther King, Justice Thurgood Marshall, Dr. Jonas Salk?

Just askin'.

*When I was looking up a quote for Chuck Noll, I came across this one.

"Some coaches pray for wisdom. I pray for 260-pound tackles. They'll give me plenty of wisdom."

Love it!

On another note, is it just me, or does anybody else want to take Stephen Slater out for a well deserved drink? You go man......... We've all been there, haven't we? He followed through on what each and every one of us has wanted to do at some point in our lives. (Thankfully I have my AMG girls, we've talked each other off the wall too many times to count!)

Stephen, you are my kind of hero,not Grecian Joe Paterno!
