Practice makes perfect.....post on....
Rush went through at least 25 quotes from other people of both parties saying the same thing about the Ponzi scheme that is Social Security. Another one of my pet peeves is when people mispronounce “social” when they put those two words together.
Who is she? I haven’t heard of her.
Paul Beguiler (a/k/a "The Forehead"), a well-known
Dem pundit and purveyor of delusion & deception...
Any relation to Mary Katherine Gallagher?
(And why would I want a trace of buffalo in my apple butter?)
I love MK! How cool to see her.
I was feeling musical prior to the big dead zone
She’s on against Juan on O’reilly. Not sure where else she’s been, she’s a cute 20 something. Have known of her for years but can’t recall specifically from what.
Excellent! Worth waiting all day for that one! a ++++
Just like all the cute 20 something girls I vaguely recall. ;-)
Did you sign up for gbtv? He was pretty good but it is diff watching on comp rather than the tv. Still hawking gold line LOL!
I guess I missed his debut, huh? I was thinking Sept 14 or 15, for some reason. I intend to sign up, but I’m not really in my normal pattern here.
And, hey, I don’t even get an “RME” for my efforts. LOL
What exactly were you “efforting” ? ; )
There’s a two week free trial you might take advantage of.
I always enjoyed cooking dinner and watching Glenn.....now it is TWO hours long. Be still my heart.
Two agencies have sent staffed ambulances to cover our district to give us a much needed break. It is awesome to hear them on the radio. I know I am trying to relax and shed the stress, I am sure those that did much more than me and lost their homes on top of it appreciate it even more than me.
I’m now a member.
Having historians build up your character and accomplishments, while glossing over your shortcomings after you've died (ie JFK)?? A rather beguiling idea.
A+++ Chrissy fatpantload Matthews is apparently writing a book about JFK so there’s sure to be more of that glossing.
That must be a godsend.
yeah, i was in the middle of trying to post something to you when the servers went down like a lew... NO. I’m not going to go there.
oral fixation? ; )
Oh, yummy. I want one or two or...
You have all the luck, don’t you!
