Magic smoke has a very strong odor

Moral: New inverter time

Nobody has yet to invent a device to capture and reinstall the Magic Smoke once it escapes! But I have heard that the EPA will soon require an emissions control device to prevent Magic Smoke from entering the atmosphere.

Dave- will the EPA be applying those new rules to folks higher in the food chain in Washington, D.C., for all the Magic Smoke emitted there?

Mike. That is not Magic Smoke.. It's hot air.. IN fact it's the major source of global warming.

That's why this winter has been so cold here in North America ... For many years now, in fact more than a few Presidents worth, we have heard talk of the need for health care reform.. But all it's generated till this year was HOT AIR.

This year we have a president who put pen to paper and .. Well, wishes to put his signature on a line.. Thus instead of just passing gas they are actually trying to pass a law.

Will it happen? I don't know.. Should it happen? I don't know.. What do I know?

I know that I don't wish to discuss it here.. (The point is that less hot air is being generated in Washington DC just now)

Home is where I park it!
