Let's hope that this A$$HAT has a very ephemeral tenure in off ice and that Lowe's sticks to it's guns on this matter

Calif. senator threatens boycott over Lowe's ads

(http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2819070/posts) Calling the retail giant's decision "un-American" and "naked religious bigotry," Sen. Ted Lieu, D-Torrance, told The Associated Press on Sunday that he would also consider legislative action if Lowe's doesn't apologize to Muslims and reinstate its ads

There is nothing more ephemeral than the credibility of a once-great Nation under the "leadership" of the Kenyan-in-Chief.

Thanks to my Hungarian heritage (father’s side), I’ve seen a great recipe for Chicken Paprikash. It starts with: Steal One Chicken.

I certainly hope not - it need not be if we can get this despicable traitor out of office and return the White House to American hands.

Our Congress, 2 houses, bicameral
World leadership? fleeting, ephemeral
Separation of powers?

My sister lives in a big Hunky area and the Hunkyfest is a big deal every year, with people competing for best Paprikash. Because we’re goofy, we call it Poppykosh.

Only half. Does that make me a gyp? Mother's side is Russian. Both of my parents were first generation Americans.

Count me in the Hunkie reunion! Both paternal grandparents off the boat from Poland, both maternal grandparents from Slovakia. One grandfather was a coal miner, one a steelworker. My little Slovak grandmother used to call us gypsies when we acted up. You know, my parents had a “mixed marriage”, what with a Pollock marrying a Slovak. Heresy.

Three of my grandparents came to the US from other countries: Denmark, Scotland, and Canada(Newfoundland). The other one was from Brooklyn and dated back to the American Revolution’s Captain John Parker. She was the scariest of all.
