Having given their Impramatur to the Hillary creature in the NH primary, the dim faithful seem to have shown their unswerving devotion to the dogma of the aforesaidmention of said Party.

It is a sad, sad day indeed, when the uninformed will give their Impramatur for socialism, instead of stepping up to the plate and giving their loyalty and total Impramaur to things which really count, such as (A.) supporting our brave fighting men and women who now are in harm’s way, and (B.) Not giving their Impramautur to candidates who, IMHO, will make a real POTUS, such as Fred Thompson (GO DUDE!!!)

After the debate, I kept thinking about another Presidental run, many years ago, when one other actor said what he meant and meant what he said. Say what one may, being used to playing a character, just as Ronnie R did, is not too dissimilar from going thru the political process. The field of acting, to be quite honest, is not all that much of a leap of faith than becoming POTUS. The C-IN-C is in all reality, playing a part, albeit the most important part for which one can be cast. Looking the part is just as important as the actions one takes in the part. IMHO, Fred Thompson has what it takes to do both, for it takes that special skill to bring oneself out in front of the Country and the World as one who brooks no problems, has the courage to act, quickly, decisively, and ruthlessly to solve those problems, as well as winning over, and this may be the most important of the reasons, winning the public backing.

Fred Thompson has it all..I give my unqualified Impramatur
to his hopefully future elections and the big one of all, his election as POTUS.

I finally committed to color in my kitchen. A combo of what I would call sunshine yellow/harvest moon yellow..depending on the time of day. It’ half done. I couldn’t move the refrigerator by myself so I will finish tonight. It feels great to walk in and see that wall finished....it’s the one I chipped the brick off of and muddied all by myself. It looks fabulous!

The NY TImes perhaps needs a Imprintatur to verify whether ANY story recently printed there has any facts at all ....

Or, of course, they could just imprintadventure to have fun and fantasy - they do on the editorial pages.

I’m sorry, but you are in violation. You can’t have an Imprimatur without a Nihil Obstat.
