Did You Know?

Because I didn't. Did you know that Obama has his own channel on DISH Network? Stephanie and I were browsing through the menu on TV last night and happened upon channel 73 which indicated it was The Obama Channel. Huh? I was huhed again. I immediately switched the TV to that channel to see what the ruckus was all about. It was about a 2-3 minute long speech indicating what he wanted to do as President. It was on for hours and was the same speech played over and over and over and over. Weird huh? There I go again with the Huh item.

I was thinking of this on the long drive through the country to get to my place of employment. I wondered how long it would be on but mostly I wondered just how much it would cost to have your own channel on a satellite network.

Just another of those things that make you go hummmmmm.

Huh? Gee that sounds annoying, you can't keep a speech on a loop that's boring. Can't wait to see how this debate goes tonight that should be interesting.

I saw that last night and I was not thrilled. I mean come on. It's bad enough we have to see commericals we sure as heck don't want to listen to him talk over and over again. And people wonder why I WON'T vote for him!

Here's an idea instead of spending all that money for your own channel why not put it to some good and help the homeless of the US!

He has raised a lot of money without taking public funds. I suppose that he can use it as he sees fit. It doesn't bother me at all.

Lou, we even have a Starbucks here. It is oddly placed inside one of the 2 hospitals in this town. I find that a little strange. My So finds it strange that I have never been in a Starbucks.

You are correct about my name. My parents almost named me Windy. I thanked them several times for NOT doing that!

Trailboss said...

Me either Syd. In fact I watched it for several minutes.

so funny that I should read this. I JUST called my husband and said "did you know Obama has his own channel on tv?" He said "nuh-unh!" I said "uh-huh!!" As you can tell we were both shocked. LOL It won't be watched in THIS house..I can guarantee that!!! ;-)
