A quick glance out the window as he tugged the knot closed at his throat. Not the power red today, a more funereal blue. They disgusted him, gathered around the podium out there as if it were a gallows scaffold. Reporters. ‘Vultures!’ he hissed. Teeming, prevenient and frenzied. Like sharks circling a leaking raft...

Your commentary about TO sounds very similar to what is going on in the Hampton Roads area about Michael Vick.......pathetic.

Back from Room 101 in the Ministry of Love already?
Or do the Obamites use a different name than Orwell?

It was really only meant as a gag when we turned you into the fishy@wh.gov boys... ; )

Have you now fully embraced the Slouch towards Single payor?

Did I ever mention that not only was I once a member in good standing of the SEIU, I was the shop steward?

I swear when I see tats all up and down someone’s arm like in that photo, the first thing that comes to my mind is he/she is wearing a flowered blouse, or sleeves....

Seriously. In 1976, first and second year residents were permitted to belong to the union. Once I became a third year, I was considered a supervisor and no longer eligible.

looks like he WORE sleeves to cover his arm since his sunburn is more severe in the belly and chest region! yuck! saw way too many disgusting people in revealing garb at the amusement park. you seriously have to wonder what some of those women are thinking when they leave the house looking like that!
oh there was someone similar to the pictured rednecks, at hersheypark, with his girlfriend, wearing a t-shirt that said on the front of it “i’m a keeper”... upon catching sight of him, the kids and i exchanged glances and started to ROAR! they couldn’t wait to tell their father how mommy didn’t even wait til the guy was past to basically laugh in his face. Of course, xshub, who wasn’t with us, didn’t GET IT, thinking that the guy was indicating he was a member of the “promisekeepers” RME!

You two (three) Pittsburghers.... Willie posted about a local sandwich the other day - his Mom took shaved ham and made a sort of sloppy joe with it....Did either of you experience that local quisine growing up?

Oh and XS, I buy Mrs. T's pierogies (frozen) here...

No. Just a generic politician. And Obama will surely come to hate the media by the end of his term. They all do.

isly’s chipped ham fried up with ketchup, yessirree bob, that was a sammich of my youth! i am not surprised you buy mrs T’s that is what i buy also. not bad for storebought. the best part of homemade is the dough is more delicate and not so rubbery.

There is some kind of disconnect in some people - anorexics look at themselves and see fat, where we see skin and bones.... and women who wear revealing clothing with all sorts of body parts/rolls falling out and think they look good are almost like the opposite end of the spectrum... both types are mentally ill

Well some of the folks on the Texas board were attacking Willie regarding the sandwich but it sounded interesting to me - he did say chipped and couldn’t find it here and I suggested he request “shaved” ham thinking that might get closer to the consistency. His mom made some sort of sauce with pickle relish and catsup - sort of like a bbq sauce - so of course I’ve been craving some kind of ham/bbq sauce sandwich since then... lol

I think they really don't realize that some curves are NOT really attractive.

No, it’s a role-playing, strategy game that is very popular on Facebook. You build up your mafia by inviting other FB friends to join in, send gifts to your mafia members (weapons and loot that you pick up on “jobs”), run your little criminal enterprise and acquire properties to bank the make believe Mafia Wars money. It’s a funny diversion that many FB-ers are fanatical about.

At one time I thought she was funny. That’s before she had all the plastic surgery & straightened her hair. Messed up her brain cells, no elimated her brain cells.

Kathy was on a tv show starring Brooke Shields back in the 90's I think - she was the sarcastic side kick - then had her face reworked, added boobs I think and she's still the sarcastic sidekick...

The bitter hate and envy of leftists tends to really mar the visage. It shows thru regardless of what kind of surgery they may attempt to cover it up.
