Twilight Zone Day

When: Always on May 11th

Twilight Zone Day is mysterious, weird, surreal and perhaps a little scary. We can think of many other adjectives, but I think you get the picture. Every once in a while, you have a day like this. And, today is designed to be that day. 

Unfortunately, the last 4 years have felt like we're living in the Twilight Zone permanently.....


President Obama: “Somebody gave me an education. I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth. Michelle wasn’t. But somebody gave us a chance – just like these folks up here are looking for a chance.” Insofar as I know, President Obama has never had to attend a public school.


President Obama to soldiers at Fort Stewart on the Georgia coast: “Each of us is only here because somebody looked out for us. Not just our parents, but our neighbors and our communities and our houses of worship and our VFW halls. Because we had a country that was willing to invest in things like community colleges and universities and scientific research and medicine and caring for our veterans. Each of us is only here because somebody somewhere had our backs. Because generations of Americans worked together. `Out of many we are one.’ Those are values we gotta return to.”  So, probably news to these soldiers that they are now fighting for socialism.

Vice President Joe Biden: “I promise you the president has a big stick. I promise you.”  The cool part of this is, on video, people start laughing, and Biden then has a confused look on his face, as if he is thinking, “I said something funny again?”

President Obama about singing Al Green: “I can sing. I wasn’t worried about being able to hit those notes.”

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney: “I never lie. I never say something that I know isn’t true.”

Michelle Obama: “It’s hard to sneak around and do what you want. I have done it a couple of times. But you know one fantasy I have, and the Secret Service they keep looking at me because they think I might actually do it, is to walk right out the front door and just keep walking.”

President Obama, who ran up $5 trillion in debt in 3.5 years: “We’re here only because somebody somewhere felt responsibility not just for themselves, but they felt responsibility for something else, but they felt responsibility for something larger. They thought about their neighborhood, they thought about their community, they thought about their country – now – they thought about the planet. Now its our turn to be responsible, its our turn to keep that promise alive. No matter how tough these times have been, no matter how many obstacles that may stand in our way, I promise you North Carolina, there are better days ahead.”

axelrodfeddeficit.jpg

Presidential adviser David Axelrod: “We’ve imposed new strictures relative to waste and inefficiency and fraud that have saved tens of billions of dollars on travel, on printing, on leases, on fraud. Our Medicare, our health care fraud unit over at the Justice Department and HHS has recovered over $10 billion. those prosecutions are up 70%. We are saving taxpayers money all the time.”

Rep. Chaka Fattah, D-Penn. “Unemployment continues to drop and those people who are unemployed, they’re not going to be voting for the party who wants to cut their benefits – cut access to food stamps, cut job training,”


Paul Begala fund-raising email: “Republicans won’t just take us backward, they’ll take us to a place called Radical.”

Former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev: “Of course, there are many people who don’t like what President Obama is doing. But, my opinion of him is very [favorable]. I will support him.”

President Obama of Mitt Romney: “I’ve met him, but we’re not friends. His wife is lovely.”

Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt: “Secretive oil billionaires are making good on their promise to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on Governor Romney‘s behalf attempting to defeat the President.”

Debbie Wasserman Schultz: “Ya know, [Romney is] wanting to take us back to a time when insurance companies could drop us or deny us coverage simply because of our gender being considered a preexisting condition.”

Michelle Obama: “See, believe me, what you have to know is your president, Barack, he knows this. He knows this all too well. He understands these issues because he’s lived them. He was raised by a single mother who struggled to put herself through school and pay the bills.” And yet, the president attended only private schools?

DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz: “The Republicans have fully embraced extremism and they have brought in two years almost no jobs legislation to this floor and not worked with the president on any legislation to help make sure that we can move the economy forward because their number one goal is political and that’s to defeat Barack Obama.” Except for those 30 bills which Harry Reid will not allow to be brought to the Senate floor.

Julianna Smoot of BarackObama.com in a fund-raising email: “Spend an evening with President Obama and George Clooney, all while helping build this campaign? You know you want to.”

Michelle Obama: “…let us never forget the impact their decisions [of the two justices appointed by President Obama] will have on our lives for decades to come-on our privacy and our security, on whether we can speak freely, worship openly, and, yes, love whomever we choose. That is what’s at stake here.” How about the actual rights enumerated in the constitution?

Michelle Obama: “Two years ago, we made history together by finally passing health reform. And because we passed this law, insurance companies will now have to cover basic preventive care – things like prenatal care, mammograms, contraception – at no extra cost.”

HHS secretary Kathleen Sebelius on the balance between religion liberty and her most recent healthcare mandate on contraception: “I’m not a lawyer, and I don’t pretend to understand the nuances of the constitutional balancing tests.”

President Obama to students: “So stand up, be heard, be counted. Tell them now is not the time to double interest rates on your student loans. Now is the time to double down on smart investments to build a strong and secure middle class. Now is the time to double down on building an America that lasts.”  And he forgot to say, “And pack up your stuff and move back in with your parents.  That is what you do next after graduation.”

Socialist senator Bernie Sanders: “A post office in a rural town is more than just a post office. That post office disappears, and many times, that town disappears.”

Barney Frank, of retirement: “I would like to do a TV hit once a week.”

President Obama: “I never bought into the notion that by electing me, somehow we were entering into a post-racial period.” I hope that is code for no Barney Frank on tv.

MoveOn.Org ad: “Calling a person illegal takes away their humanity; you can join with our voices to ask media and government to drop the I-word.” This is a push to get people to stop saying “illegal aliens.”

State Sen. Steve Gallardo at the Schumer scam hearings on the Arizona immigration law: “Juan Varela, a United States citizen who gets in an argument just days after Governor Brewer signs the bill and violence occurs and Mr. Varela is dead over Senate Bill 1070. These are the unintended consequences that come from legislation where the state tries to fix what is ultimately a federal immigration problem…Senate Bill 1070 and laws like it have fostered and legitimized vigilante movements responsible for violent and sometimes lethal attacks on Latinos.” What really happened.

Former Green Jobs Czar Van Jones: “They [tea party] understood that people were sitting on a white hot stove out there, and if Democrats weren’t going to point at the financial elites, they were going to point at the government elites. Somebody got to get blamed, and part of the problem with the president was by being so bipartisan and trying to not, you know, try to be one country about everything, he let his opponents set him up.”

Vice President Joe Biden: “We’re looking for Turkish leadership in the rest of that entire region…[because] It’s a model as to how you can have an Islamic population, an Islamic state and a democracy, something the rest of the region is groping to figure out how to do.”

A senior State Department official in the Obama administration: “The war on terror is over.”

Dan Savage, homosexual activist, at a journalist conference, as many people exit his speech: “We can learn to ignore the bulls__t in the Bible the same way that we have learned to ignore the Bible about shellfish, about slavery, about dinner, about farming, about menstruation, about virginity, about masturbation; we ignore bullsh__t in the Bible about all sorts of things. The Bible is a racially pro-slavery document.”  This was a talk on bullying, during which, Savage thought it apropos to bully Christians.Liberal civility:

saywhatrcivil.gif

Occupy DC Speaker to fellow protesters: “[If I'm arrested,] I want you to start killing motherf___s!”

One of the dozen or so Blacks who did a beat down on white Matthew Owens using chairs, pipes and paint cans: “Now that’s justice for Trayvon.”

Congresswoman Yvette Clarke (D-NY) on the Tea Party: “These are individuals who have no problems with using racial epithets, have no problems with cursing and spitting. They showed the ugliest side of the United States of America.”

Lib radio talker Randi Rhodes: “[Marco Rubio] looks like a little boy [next to Romney]. It’s almost like the Batman and Robin thing that Quayle and Bush senior had going there, it’s very homoerotic I gotta say!” This is why liberal radio is going nowhere. This is why it garners such a small audience.

MSNBC’s Martin Bashir: “We should point out that when you listen to someone like Rush Limbaugh, the sort of comedy that he enjoys generally is sexist, homophobic, and racist.”


It’s all about racism…

Bill Maher: “Barack Obama was born to a single mother on food stamps and he became the first black president of the racist states of America.”

The War on Women rages…

New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd: “IT is an astonishing thing that historians will look back and puzzle over, that in the 21st century, American women were such hunted creatures, even as Republicans try to wrestle women into chastity belts, the Vatican is trying to muzzle American nuns.”

Nancy Pelosi on Republican plan to keep student interest rates low: “In order to pay for it, [House Republicans] are going to make an assault on women’s health, make another assault on women’s health, continue our assault on women’s health and pay for this with prevention initiatives that are in effect right now for childhood immunization; for screening for breast cancer, for cervical cancer; and for initiatives to reduce birth defects – a large part of what the Center for Disease Control does in terms of prevention.”

contraception.jpg

President Obama: “This contraception fight in particular was illuminating. This is a [Republican] party that says it prides itself on being rabidly anti-regulation. These are folks who claim to believe in freedom from government interference and meddling. But it doesn’t seem to bother them when it comes to women’s health.”

President Obama of mandatory ultrasound: “If you don’t like it, the governor of Pennsylvania said you can `close your eyes. It’s appalling. It’s offensive. It’s out of touch. And when it comes to what’s going on out there, you’re not going to close your eyes. Women across America aren’t closing their eyes. As long as I’m president, I won’t either.” Having had neither, I suspect that an abortion is a good deal more invasive than an ultrasound (and the kind the Obama is worried about apparently does not occur that often). It is also my understanding that many Planned Parenthood’s require an ultrasound.


Global warming and evil oil…

President Obama‘s Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, when asked if he is “being more strict on denying drilling permits based on safety and environmental concerns”: “We have new sets of regulations that that have been put into place. The permit reviews are rigorous. We make sure that any company that is going to be operating in the waters of the United States is going to be complying in the rules that we set out.”

Major League Baseball announcer Tim McCarver: “It has not been proven, but I think that ultimately it will be proven that the air is thinner now; there have been climatic changes over the last 50 years. I think that’s one of the reasons balls are carrying much better now.”

Former Vice President Al Gore: “Now there are some talk radio show hosts, they say that (global warming is) not (real). It’s up to you; my point is we must respond. What the scientists tell us is going to take place if we do not is too awful to contemplate.”

presdientclimatechange.gif

The Compliant Obama Press Corps:

NY Times columnist Gail Collins: “Did you ever notice how many of the Republican candidates seemed to have animal issues? Rick Perry shot that coyote, and Jon Huntsman got bitten by a goat — really, that was the high point of the Huntsman campaign. Also, Senator Rob Portman of Ohio, the veep front-runner, recently imitated a chicken on television…And the winner is the guy who drove to Canada with the family dog strapped to the roof of the car!” If someone wants to be a liberal and express their opinion, this is fine by me. But is this really political insight? Is there a person on this planet who read this and decided, “Wow, I never thought of it like that before. Republicans really do have some animal issues.”  Gail Collins has mentioned Mitt Romney‘s carrying his dog on top of his vehicle in about 50 articles so far.  She has never mentioned his involvement in the rescue of some people, which included the rescue of a dog.  In any case, if you if you are a flaming liberal, and you love all liberal politicians and all liberal candidates, what can you actually get from an opinion piece like this which is meaningful?

The AP explains the anemic quarter growth: “Growth slowed at year’s start but some see rebound. Don’t panic yet. The government reported Friday that the economy got off to a tepid start this year, but that doesn’t foreshadow a repeat of the near-standstill that happened in 2011….the Commerce Department said it was 2.2 percent, mainly because of government budget-cutting and a slowdown in business investment.” Except that there has been no slowdown in government spending.  The government continues to spend in excess of $1 trillion each year in borrowed money.

Washington Post’s E.J. Dionne Jr. column headline: “Romney’s principled, radical view for America”

A New York Times editorial calls Mitt Romney: “The best of a very bad bunch.”

bias.gif
(The news ran so many headlines like this when Bush was president.  Google Bush and Great Depression; there were dozens of mainstream stories about Bush and the Great Depression when unemployment was at 5%)

Recent headlines:

Christian Science Monitor: “President Obama: The cool factor”

Real Clear Politics: “`Cool’ Obama Returns GOP Fire on Gas Prices”

Philly Tribune: “Obama: The new King of Cool”

Washington Post: “Barack Obama is cool. Mitt Romney is not. What does it mean for 2012?”

ABC News: “Campaigning for the `Cool’ Vote”

Rolling Stone Magazine: “The Obama-Romney `Cool Gap’”

From what I could find about the sign was it’s in Alabma:
If any art form can truly be called American, it’s offensive text on the signboards of churches and places of business. The latest masterpiece comes to us from an electronic repair shop in the Florence for this kind of art, Alabama: “BBQ PORK RESTAURANT IS SAFEST NO MUSLIMS INSIDE SEWER CAM REPAIR.” That’s right, if we are interpreting this right — though there’s no wrong way to interpret art — each and every Muslim in the world goes to a restaurant at least once a day and blows himself up. But he does not go places that serve pork, because his lips could shoot out from his exploding jaw and land on someone’s plate of pig butt

We had rain this week. So many accidents on the roads.

Hampton Roads, VA highways are full of dehydrated idiots.

Add water, all the idiots come out on the roads. It doesn’t matter the state of the water, although solid water (snow, ice) causes more problems than gaseous water (like fog). One snowflake hits the windshield and the driver goes, “OMG!! It’s snowing!!! I can’t drive in the snow!!! I’m gonna DIE!!!! AAUGH!!!!!”

When I was in the service...I partied like a sailor...(what the hell... I was a sailor). Later, when I was in college, I partied like I was a rock star...

Later still, I used to party like it was 1999...

Now I still like to party, but I also try to keep the expenses down... so I guess you could say, I party like a Secret Service agent.
_____

I Voted Democrat Because

I voted Democrat because I love the fact that I can now marry whoever I want. I decided to marry my horse.

I voted Democrat because I believe oil companies’ profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 18% isn’t.

I voted Democrat because I’m not concerned about the slaughter of millions of babies so long as we keep all death row inmates alive.

I voted Democrat because freedom of speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

I voted Democrat because I believe that people who can’t tell us if it will rain on Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in ten years if I don’t start driving a Prius.

I voted Democrat because when we pull out of Iraq I trust that the bad guys will stop what they’re doing, because they now think we’re good people.

I voted Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

I voted Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

I voted Democrat because I’m way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves.

I voted Democrat because my head is so firmly planted up my ass that it is unlikely that I’ll ever have another point of view.

By the way, a Liberal is a person who will give away everything they don’t own.

What?

Avogadro's number is the number of molecules per mole. It's the same for every element, 6.02 x 1023.

A 1M solution will contain that many molecules, and a 1N solution will be approximately the same.

Things to do:

Go into a department store’s dressing room. After a few minutes, yell “Hey, there’s no toilet paper in here!”

Things to do:

Ask your houseguest “What is the difference between a shower curtain and toilet paper?”

When he replies he doesn’t know, say “SO! YOU’RE the one! (from the sitcom “Alf”)

The World’s Economic Viruses

Government Virus - Nothing seems to get better, but all the elected officials say it’s getting better.

Political Virus - Doesn’t actually do anything, but you can’t get rid of it until the next election.

Econometrician Virus - Sixty percent of the economies infected will lose 17 percent of their GDP 12 percent of the time (+/- a 2% margin of error).

Marxian Virus - Helps your economy go into a depression whenever it wants to.

Environmental Virus - Before allowing you to fix the recession, it first asks you if you’ve considered the alternatives.

Chinese Virus - Crashes your economy, but denies it ever happened and calls you a liar.

AIG Virus - Makes sure it’s too big to fail, while crashing everything else.

Stimulus Virus - Puts your economy in a recession for four years. When you finally recover, you’re 10 trillion more dollars in debt.

The Economy Is So Bad That...
· I got a pre-declined credit card offer in the mail.
· Exxon-Mobil laid off 25 Congressmen.
· Parents in Bevery Hills are considering raising their own children.
· I saw the CEO of Wal-Mart shopping at Wal-Mart.
· A prostitute asked me if she could borrow $20 until she can get back on her back.
· I saw a van full of legal immigrants illegally crossing the border into Mexico.
· I saw four CEOs playing miniature golf.
· Even people who aren’t in Barack Obama’s cabinet aren’t paying taxes.
Oh wait, that’s only 9 of them... darn recession is scaling down everything.

Lucky,

It was posted last week that we’re not supposed to post the cartoons of the grumpy old lady (I can’t remember her name). It’s a copywright thing. Maybe that’s why your PING got pulled.

These children may have spinal disorders, or brain disorders, and riding backwards helps them to gain some balance.

The disabled should not be linked to the Disabler.

Dang! For the guy who says his ancestors (slaves) helped to build this country, I say, “So what? I had at least one ancestor who came to this country as an indentured servant. The difference is, I have tried to make them proud of me, rather than be ashamed to call me a descendant.

That is such a totally nasty attitude...”I’m not lookin’ fo’ a job. A career maybe, but not a job.” Who’s gonna hire him?

10 Terribly Bad Mother’s Day Gifts:

 1. Tissue Box Photo Cover $9.95- I love photos as much as the next Mom, but just because you can stick a photograph on something doesn’t mean that you should.  When in doubt, go with a traditional frame, and don’t turn Mom’s treasured pictures into creepy keepsakes.

2. Chinchilla Apron $39.95 Even though this Chinchilla Apron is faux, it has no place in the kitchen…or anywhere else.

3. Face Slimmer Duck Mask sold by the Japanese Trend Shop $78 – There are so many things wrong with giving this to Mom as a gift, or to anyone at anytime, that I really don’t know where to start. Let’s just state part of the obvious and say that you should avoid gifts that insinuate that Mom needs to do exercises to slim down her fat face.  Also, look at this thing! It looks like a …WTF?

4.  Picnic Pants – Have you noticed that your Mom rarely picnics anymore?  Is it because she’s too busy?  Is it because her arms are full with diaper bags, purses, etc. and she just doesn’t have a free hand to tote around the necessary picnic blanket? Or perhaps it’s because her regular Mom jeans don’t allow her to eat off her lap with ease? Well, have I got a product for you! Picnic Pants!  Mom can enjoy eating out of her lap anywhere she can sit cross-legged (BONUS cup holder on her pant leg too)! I have no idea how much these cost because I could only stand to look at this site long enough to copy the link and the ridiculous picture.

5. Assorted Chocolate Crocheted Satchels $25-   Really? Crocheted Chocolates? These were being advertised for Mother’s Day specifically, and what’s the message this gift sends to dear old Mom? Hey Mom, I know you love to eat chocolate, but maybe you should just look at it instead. Oh, but don’t worry, it smells like the real thing! Enjoy!  For $25 go buy your Mom some real chocolate…seriously. I’m sure she’s earned at least that much by being your mother.

6. Subtle Butt Gas Filters 11.95  – Leave the fart jokes and these gassy ass filters for Father’s Day. Please.

7.  Houreisen Face Exercise Mask $92 -Last year’s hockey mask made such an impression on you, I had to include another this year too.  This one makes Mom look like she should be a professional wrestler…if you really want to give her a great gift, how about an actual facial?  A spa treatment says you care, whereas a facial exercise mask says you’re kind of an ass.

8. Hand Dipped Roses 19.99-799.99 – For $19.99 go buy a beautiful, real bouquet for Mother’s Day…fresh flowers are always a nice gesture.  And if you’re planning on shelling out nearly $800 for Mother’s Day, you could get some fabulous gold bling (and score some major points) with jewelry, instead of this odd, expensive floral thing.

9. Cooking For the Clueless DVD $18.99- I know someone who once received cooking lessons for Mother’s Day.  Now, I’m not saying this was the reason, but she is divorced now… Even if Mom really, truly needs them, Mother’s Day is not the time to give the gift of better cooking.

10.  The Emergency Bra $49.99 - Is your Mom constantly worried about being in an emergency situation without a gas mask? Does the gas mask she owns take up too much space in her purse (who’s doesn’t)? Well, Mom can relax and look stylish in her new Emergency Bra. If the moment arises, these safety cups can cover her mouth and allow Mom to breathe with ease. Whew! Function meets fashion with this handy under garment!
