On the upside our State elections yesterday got great results here - we got the Sheriff we wanted in our County and Cruz will be in a run off with dewhurst for the senate seat previously held by Kay Bailey Hutchison this summer. Mostly everything else was uncontested but we were very interested in the Sheriff's race here!
The love of my life, Allen West certainly was the victor in the agon with the troll questioning him about his aggressive interrogation of an enemy combatant. Loved the tweet, tioga.
Four lines to that story and we still don’t know if she’s hot. Jeez.
Which one, paralegal or buttinski?
I was really asking about the nosy broad, but now that you mention it I’ll take info on any babes in the mix there.
We need more Agon!
I have a running war with a neighbor who thinks he's an independent, but who is actually a liberal. He says that we agree on a lot of subjects, but that he is more compassionate toward the poor. You have to give the left credit--after decades of repeating that Big Lie, it has become a huge talking point for them. Too bad it's totally false.
that was DELISH!
i said, of course we have to take care of each other, as a community, as a family, as CHURCHES and other CHARITIES, it’s not the function of a GOVERNMENT to do so. She rolled her eyes at me.
and no HD, nothing remotely hot. you should know better than to think it’s even possible for a lib woman to BE hot. She’s older than i am, and not as well preserved. And, my paralegal is a doll, but 60+
You got an eye roll - nice. Basically saying “I hate what you’re telling me but have nothing to say to defend my position.”
Wow. Good news for sure.
LOL Look what the cat dragged in.
Looks interesting. Let me know.
He looked especially fine, didn’t he? A++
Fauxcohauntus just keeps on going like that energizer bunny....she is paving the way to total humiliation come November. I don’t see them shoving her out of the way for another candidate, probably Scott Brown’s poll #s look amazing or something.
Bill Whittle is a disgusting pig who deserves a good old fashioned shunning...
Among the Obama synchophants
Every agon seems more extreme
With talking points that surely
Came to someone in a dream
Jay Carney-barker is stuttering
As the press is getting giddy
And Holder wonders if his fate
Is like that of Haldeman or Liddy...
From enemies lists to hit lists
The Nixon references are growing-
Every time Obama speaks openly
His mafia side is showing
I also want very much to to go and see “For Greater Glory”.
Fauxcahontas now thinks she is a new version of the historical Sacajawea, carrying her papoose along on the trail?
