Marriage counseling with dummies

My friend Don sent me this joke. I wondered if people who read this list would find it funny?

A husband and wife came for counseling after 20 years of marriage. When asked what the problem was, the wife went into a passionate, painful tirade listing every problem they had ever had in the 20 years they had been married.  She went on and on and on: neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness,loneliness, feeling unloved and unlovable, an entire laundry list of unmet needs she had endured over the course of their marriage.

Finally, after allowing this to go on for a sufficient length of time, the therapist got up, walked around the desk and, after asking the wife to stand, embraced and kissed her passionately as her husband
watched with a raised eyebrow. The woman shut up and quietly sat down as though in a daze.

The therapist turned to the husband and said, "This is what your wife needs at  least three times a week. Can you do this?"

The husband thought for a moment and replied, "Well , I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Fridays, I play golf'."


Bush administration lied to American public about reasons for Iraq war according to Senate Intelligence Committee report.

Here is the reason why smart and sophisticated people listen to Jon Stewart's The Daily Show for the news albeit satire, because he is one of the few who actually alludes to the important news in our society.

The Senate Intelligence report came out on June 5, 2007 and basically concludes that the Bush administration lied and distorted the facts to rationalize reasons for the war misleading the American people into a trillion dollar fiasco. Two of the three networks, CBS, and ABC didn't mention this most significant finding at all on their news broadcast, and NBC only gives in cryptic coverage.

It seems indeed ironic that you have to watch a satirical comedy program to get any significant news in the U.S. Makes you seriously question the role of the corporate media in our so-called democracy where propaganda and entertainment passes now as the evening news, and comedy gives us the truth.

The video lasts 4:24 and is worth watching.

U. S. Politicians failing corporate lobbyists - The Onion

I love satire, but you know, sometimes it makes me cry because, even though intended as mockery and parody it isn't that far from the truth. Our government is owned by the corporations. As the philosophers and the social critics have long told us, if you want to understand what happens politically, don't look for the true and honest thing which is best for the people, but follow the money.
