It's time for some complaining.
Here are words and phrases I'm tired of hearing:
Our New Economy
I hear this phrase every night on the news. What is "our new economy" anyway? Oh! They must mean the one that's in the tank? I guess "our new economy" sounds better than "our crappy hide-money-in-your-mattress-because-that's-the-only-place-it-will-be-safe economy."
I hope this woman's 15 minutes is up soon because I'm tired of hearing about her.
Have you heard? Middle-aged ladies that used to be famous a really long time ago are getting their bikini bodies back. Evidently they lost them in the 80's and found them again by becoming spokespeople for weight-loss companies, hiring personal trainers and nutritionists, undergoing a professional make-over and photo-shoot, and having the resulting photos subjected to the greatest Photo Shop minds of this decade.
Overseas Contingency Operations
OK, I haven't really heard this one on the news, unless you count The Daily Show: Overseas Contingency Operations is what we used to call "The War on Terror." But "War on Terror" is so "George Bush." And "War on Terror" sounds scary and mean. So Obama and his team niced it up a little. I think they are also referring to terror attacks as "man-made disasters."
