Michelle Obama raps and rules
I love this. This video shows that Michelle Obama is definitely connected to what is happening in today’s youth. Super impressive. Certainly could not see Barbara Bush doing this. Although I could see Hillary going for it.
This is good. There’s a company/group that also uses “current” media/voice to get kids off sugar. Called DunkTheJunk… Twitter handle is DunkTheJunkFood.
Love it, thanks for sharing!
.Safe bet — BB would not be doing this.OTOH, I ran into Laura Bush at Tx French Bread yesterday and she was working on her decades long reading initiative, something she started when she was Texas First Lady.She was a librarian in Midland, Texas when she met George Bush, so reading is a logical cause and she has been working on it for years.I doubt she’s going to make a rap video but she works at it consistently and quietly and has for 30 years.She looks great. Classy, thin, sharp as a tack.A small army of Secret Service with her.JLMwww.themusingsofthebigredca…
Personally I would never want to be married to a librarian (or be one) it seems like a low energy type of work that is not very challenging or stimulating in any significant way. Before that she was a 2nd grade school teacher. I think a guy like George was probably looking for the type of woman that would be his 50’s housewife and make good obedient arm candy. Vastly different than what Clinton and/or Obama obviously have done.Bush didn’t need help from “the little lady” to be President, he had his Dad and the legacy. Obama and Clinton did.Noting this from Laura’s upbringing:Her father was a home builder and later successful real estate developer while her mother worked as the bookkeeper for her father’s business.Can you imagine Joanne being happy just being “Fred’s bookeeper at USV?”. I can’t. (My mom was a bookeeper by the way and a cousin of mine is a librarian..)
I’d shoot myself.
I’ve actually had other men say to me things like “Why would you want to be married to someone that is smart and earns their own living?”You are so lucky that you live in NYC. Where I am (an upscale suburb) there is a large helping of mediocrity in the community and you get “deer in headlight” looks from people if you try to talk about anything that requires thought.
that’s frightening that someone would ask you that.
.Not if Obama had confiscated all our guns, right?Let me apologize for that right now and save us both some time.JLMwww.themusingsofthebigredca…
Think about all the drones, missiles, etc. that could be built by using the melted metal from all the guns…
.Think of all the goodness in life if we could get rid of all the evil even the things we do to safeguard ourselves from the evil.Evil is very expensive.JLMwww.themusingsofthebigredca…
Well said. In fact, we’ve both said the same thing, but yours without the satire 🙂
Please use a water pistol, though 🙂
.What a dumbass you are, LE. You should get a good look at Laura Bush today. Hot as a pistol.”We all get the wives we deserve.” Jean Paul Sartre supposedly said that.I had a guy who worked with me who went to HS with Laura and had the most admirable things to say about her.Joanne Wilson would be happy regardless of what she ever undertook. It doesn’t take a role to make someone happy. It takes a self lit fire and I have no reservations that JW would find her fire stick. Most accomplished women don’t need a man to make them happy.Fred, OTOH, would be a plumber in Farmingdale without JW. A very good plumber but still, a plumber.I won’t even get into Texas and Southern women. I don’t want to make you cry.In the end, we cannot make ourselves happy but we can keep ourselves from becoming unhappy. And when we are not unhappy, a bit of happiness may crawl into the void.Say what you want about George Bush and Laura but of all the Bush’s I’d rather hang with him than the rest of them. He was a fabulous Governor of Texas and he’s a good guy. Even if he did some dumb stuff as President, I am certain he was acting from principle. She’s the real thing.I wouldn’t walk across the street to have a beer with any of his brothers. I admire his Dad in a grandfatherly way.JLMwww.themusingsofthebigredca…
I understand fully that you have “the hots” for Laura however I didn’t say anything about her looks at all. (Just her career path.) Who mentioned beauty?Joanne Wilson would be happy regardless of what she ever undertook. It doesn’t take a role to make someone happy.Somehow I don’t think that is the case relative to the subject I brought up “a librarian”. She likes and enjoys being a (yiddish here) “big mahoof”. So do you for that matter. So does Warren Buffet. Not me. I am “Howard Gittis” not “Ron Pearlman”. Most accomplished women don’t need a man to make them happy.Depends on the definition of “need”. You could say that about men as well. Personally I like having a spouse. And it would be hard for me to see how Joanne doesn’t like traveling and living with Fred or vice versa. Don’t think she’d be as happy without that, just a guess here.Look at Trump. Could be with a different woman each week (and changes them every 10 years let’s say) or even Brad Pitt but still decides to have one woman, generally, usually. Those guys aren’t us but they choose to not rotate the women weekly. Must be something to need or happiness with having a single person, eh? Cars on the other hand I change every year or two.
“In the end, we cannot make ourselves happy but we can keep ourselves from becoming unhappy. And when we are not unhappy, a bit of happiness may crawl into the void.” — Powerful words.
“Fred, OTOH, would be a plumber in Farmingdale without JW. A very good plumber but still, a plumber.” A most fascinating statement!
.Just kidding. Of course.TRUE STORY –Hillary Clinton was visiting her hometown with her husband right afterehe was inaugurated as President.On the way back to the airport, they stopped at a gas station whereupon a man hugged her.”Bill, this is Melvin, my high school boyfriend.”As they rode away, Bill Clinton said, “Hill, that was your high school boyfriend? He’s a freakin’ loser. Not like me, the President of the United States. I saved you from marrying that loser Melvin.”Hillary smiled, leaned over and kissed Bill on the cheek whispering in his ear, “Bill, if I had married Melvin — he’d be the President of the United States.”Whereupon Bill pouted and looked out the window for the rest of the trip back to the airport.TRUE STORY?JLMwww.themusingsofthebigredca…
Mr JLM,I’m afraid I heard this story before- except the Clintons were substituted with the Obamas. We know “behind every great man is a great woman” “History has many cunning passages” et al.I wonder though sometimes, if say, a fisherman in Spain, who only lives to work, and who takes a siesta every afternoon, and spends a lot of time with his family would trade his life with a POTUS who works 60+ hours/ week, is always accompanied by secret service, and whose life is made very public? I remember Caroline Kennedy wrote in her book “The Right to Privacy” that essentially people who are in the public eye have none.Fair tradeoff? Happiness/freedom for fame/fortune?
If I may interrupt this very intriguing public exchange… from my limited knowledge of the Bush family, it appears to me that former POTUS George Bush II really wanted to be a professional baseball player and through family obligations entered political life whilst Laura was the fiesty, outspoken, Democratic journalist who captured his heart and had to succumb to the role of the “ideal first lady”. As Jackie Kennedy said, “Women must hide their intelligence”.
