Caught My Eye…

It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not. ― André Gide

Welcome to the “Black Friday” edition of Caught My Eye!

The holiday season is upon us! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and were able to relax with family and friends. Last night I felt a little like one of those large balloons in the Thanksgiving Day parade – kind of like a blimp.

If you are a first-time visitor, “Caught My Eye” is posted right here every Friday morning! This is when I take a look at some of the stories I did not have time to write about during the week. I often throw in a touch of sarcasm to make you smile – or to irritate you just a little – or maybe both.

Today I write about Montana Drivers, Small Business Saturday, Obama & Christmas, The Chanukah Song Part 4, plus we have a winner who is Making Montana Proud!

Montana Drivers:

Congratulations Montana! USA Today reports that Montana retained its dubious title from last year of having the worst drivers. Drivers were ranked in several categories of traffic fatalities by (Source)

Yes, one of the categories is drunk driving.

Let’s be careful out there…

Making Montana Proud:

This section is where I mention people or groups whose actions embarrass Montana in some way.

From MTN News: Helena resident Levi Brandon Richeson, 37, has been charged after allegedly using elk antlers in an attempt to stab his wife.

Richeson reportedly tried to stab his wife after she refused to drive him to Teaser’s Strip Club. A friend ended up driving him to the strip club.

One key “point” to remember from this story is that Richeson did use a designated driver….

Small Business Saturday:

Don’t forget that tomorrow (Saturday, November 28) is Small Business Saturday, so be sure to get out and shop at your local small business.

More information can be found HERE.

The Chanukah Song Part 4:

Adam Sandler has updated his “Chanukah Song” for the fourth time. Enjoy:

Obama & Christmas:

It’s the holiday season and that means fruitcakes! Yes, the “fruitcakes” on the right will once again be telling the rest of us through Facebook, Twitter, and maybe even on their Christmas cards, that President Obama has issued an order banning U.S. service members from using the word “Christmas,” or that “Christmas” trees are now referred to as “Holiday trees” in the White House since Obama has been President.

Next up we’ll probably hear that Obama was behind the red Starbucks holiday cup conspiracy.

The best advice I can give you is to cut down on the spiked eggnog, take a deep breath, and relax. It’s still OK to say Merry Christmas while holding on to your favorite rifle…

One More Thing:

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. ― Eleanor Roosevelt
