Monday Ė Empty Chair Day
Legal Insurrection ^ | 8-31-12 | William Jacobson

Posted on 09/01/2012 9:24:10 PM PDT by STARWISE

That’s what reader Sandy writes:

Prof – Seems that there is an effort to make Monday “empty chair day”

Below is an image of my front lawn, just mowed, to ensure the emptychair looks right. The sign next to the chair says: “We own this country . . . Politicians are employees of ours . . . And when somebody does not do the job, we’ve got to let them go.” –Clint Eastwood

The huge cultural divide is reflected in the photo above contrasted with this NY Daily News article and photo about “Eastwooding” by New Yorkers who think the joke was on Eastwood:

(video here, did not embed because autorun)

Who knew an empty chair could expose so much.

Send me your “empty chair” photos on Monday, and I’ll run them.

The Twitter hashtag is #EmptyChairDay

The county party is going to be in the local Labor Day parade Monday. I think we’re going to use the Empty Chair idea on our float.

Apologies to songwriters Burt Bacharach & Hal David (RIP 9/1/2012)

A chair's an empty chair
Even when Obama's sitting there
But Obama's not a man
Who can lead us to a land
Of prosperity - just hope and change
Just empty words, like the man - deranged.

Who knew what legend Clint started? Let the libs diss him .. he’s a great American, and sane Americans knows it!

I really wish FR had a “like” button.

I dragged a cracked (broken) dark green resin chair to my front yard for
my back porch. DH pointed out that trash pick up isn’t til Friday. I explained that MY “Eastwood” chair represents the “broken empty promises, and failed “green”’pandering” of Dear Leader. I was on quite a roll...as thunderstorms are predicted today and tomorrow—I think my “sign” may have to be laminated.

Malkin and Breitbart have picked up the idea.

Star, someone around here did a marvelous graphic on the eCOTUS, complete with a seal and chair. Do you remember who it is?

Aww .. thank you, dear TOL. Say me a prayer. Just routinely bent over to pick up something yesterday, and BOOM .. I’ve been in agony since, hobbled over since in such awful back pain. Sitting or lying down feels ok .. but it nearly makes me faint to get up and move. Thank God I found an Rx for hydrocodone from 5 yr old knee surgery and took one a couple of hours ago .. almost magic. Dang, dang, dang ....

Amen! WOO HOO!

“The sign says “Pray for Obama”, but it’s the scripture quoted below those words that is raising eyebrows: Psalms 109:8.

Psalms 109:8 reads, “Let his days be few, and let another take his office.”

Hi lady, of course I remember you!! I haven’t posted much, lots of family and stuff going on, lol.

Not sure I understood what you meant by; “Don’t they have anything better to do?” in your previous reply.
Hope your weekend is going great.
