I will never Twitter

As I watch the do-nothing, partisan, self-absorbed, clueless Congress members and Senators disrespectfully & myopically Twittering during our Chief Executive's State of the Union Address, I am resolved - I shall never Twitter. 140 characters is ridiculously abbreviated. And WHO CARES what is on the mind of a Congressman or Senator as the President is speaking? Really, Who Cares? I see no added value in it.

Me, and Jon Stewart, we'll both not Twitter. =)


  1. I have met more cool people, been exposed to new ideas, and received free products via twitter. Its the greatest thing ever.

  2. perhaps I am just a grumpy old man. ...and I do not have a web enabled phone, because like my parents and grandparents before me, I don't want to pay exorbitant fees (like they never did for long distance telephone or cable TV when they could get it for free via analog broadcast many years ago).

    Maybe it's a good thing... and I'll see that someday, but I'll want to read it on a screen that is at least 8-1/2 x 11 inches wide, not 1.5 x 1.5.

    Hey you kids, get off my virtual lawn! argh! =)

  3. Back in my day, we had to make condoms from Sheeps' bladder if we wanted to get laid!

  4. ...and entire movie plots revolved around finding a pay phone... and if you wanted to get money out of the bank at night you needed a big drill, or dynamite, or deft fingers and a stethoscope... and if you got lost in the back country, you better have a sexton and a cloudless sky to navigate back without a precious GPS to save your butt!

    You laugh, but the very first condom I ever purchased in high school (had to drive to the next town over where the pharmacist didn't know me) was a sheep skin - I splurged! LOL the good ole days before HIV was rampant, and the tiny micro pores inherent in sheep skin that can pass a virus through them didn't matter so much. =P
