Practice makes perfect.....post on....
The fact that she looks so bad lends credence to the charges. And ok, maybe she doesn't drink, maybe she was stoned?
Congrats! Was excited to see Walker win last night. Obama must be shaking in his shoes.
Unbelievable how stupid those Hollywood starlets really are. Twitter exposes it all. Love it.
And now Miley’s getting married.
I have mixed feelings. I think they are way too young, but then the shacking/serial whoring isn’t good either. I do like the ring... ; )
I was clapping my hands and howling with glee last night when I saw how badly Walker smacked down the ‘rat contender-hope it is a preview of things to come.
I saw a bumper sticker yesterday on a truck at the general store that I want-it said “I’ll take the Mormon over the Moron”, and had the Obama logo in the “O” in “moron”...
Bill Clinton is a speaker
Who is fine, as lawyers go-
He knows how to play a crowd
And how to steal the show
‘Rats who attempt to use him
To boost Obama’s leftist case
Risk having his mordant wit
Blow right up in their face
Now he’s got his collar off
And he’s verbally throwing dirt-
He’s showing his old enemies how
He can still put on the hurt
And I just love it when they eat their own.
“shaking in his shoes.”
He is too self-absorbed for that-more likely throwing a tantrum...
love your pome, and LOOOOVE the bumpersticker!!! A++++
Thank you! I’m going to start searching for it-that was obviously a plumber’s truck, so the person probably bought it online someplace.
I had to reply to the Miley Cyrus remark-some people are still mature enough to make a youthful marriage work, depending on their upbringing. That said, I’d rather see the girl married than being another dumb slut or getting into the jail-to-rehab loop for substance abuse.
Did I understand correctly though that the idiot dems took back the WI senate?
Yes, apparently. But there are no sessions scheduled for the rest of the year before new elections this fall. And redistricting is supposed to help the GOP in the fall.
So they may call a special session and kick up a fuss, but they will have no way of getting anything done.
zazzle.com! I just sent pix of it to my family.
Weird - if she doesn’t drink she shouldn’t have had any reason to refuse the blood/breath test! In fact she should have insisted on it! But honestly, that photo of her should be proof enough that she drinks - what sober person under the age of 80 would put that color on her hair???
Great bumper sticker, and poem, as always!
just read a headline that they did, but from what i understood last night, it won’t mean anything because they recess for the summer and there will be another election in the fall, this was just to finish out this term. so practically speaking it’s meaningless.
Good explanation, thanks! If they do call a special session can Walker veto anything they try to push through?
I’m sure he could, but the Dems only won control of the state senate, not the house. So they couldn’t pass anything through both houses anyway.
I had read that the WI Senate wasn’t in session again until after the November elections.
Correct. But I also read that they may have the power to convene for an “emergency” session. If they want to have some show votes and continue to display their immaturity.
I was explaining to my daughter yesterday and she couldn’t believe how childish they were. Especially when I told her how they ran away to another state.
Thanks! I’m going there to get one...
