The zeitgeist of so-called pro life Democrats was made obvious by their inability to read a bill and discern its meaning. The culture of death party reveals itself on a daily basis.

Zeitgeist.

The zeitgeist, the time spirit, it is the hand raised not in friendly recognition but in the rigid salute, not in the easy salutation of friends but in fearful submission, not in hopeful submission to a greater good but to superior power, not in superior power to an end but wounding power as both means and end.
People in tall black boots being hailed by people in flip-flops. Zeitgeist!

The Hip-Hop/Rap/Gangsta zeitgeist of Misogyny, Drug abuse, violence, and hate contributed to the death of Whitney Houston. JMHO.

oh i have made homemade dog biscuits many times, but i was just not prepared for valentines day at the OTSFD!

shub has arranged for Slapshot, the Caps mascot, to go to xsjr’s HS and bring her hot choc and DD munchkins today at noon. He’d talked to the dean of students there in advance to make sure it would be ok, and i talked to her friend Joey, about videotaping it for us, since none of us will be there to see it. So hopefully that will be a huge surprise for her.

Out society’s zeitgeist has led to much drug abuse that has created a tenebrific cacography on the walls of many big cities. It is a gallimaufry of illegal street drugs and prescription drugs that work together to destroy us. Many a panjandrum has fallen under it’s spell. Some, like Whitney Houston fall so far, they die. Others, like Rush Limbaugh have conquered it. All very sad.

The liberals’ overarching zeitgeist
Spend money, kill babies, fight Christ
They can’t resist the temptation
To rework civilization
In November, we will see them sliced, diced

The maid at the Holiday Inn Express was still badly confused about who she needed service first. Her manager, now very irritated, corrected her yet again.

“No, no. Not that dis guest room, but zeitgeist room!”

It is a beautiful day-65 and sunny at last after all the cold, dreary weather-no more estimates to do today-in half an hyour or so, I’m going to make some tuna salad for lunch, pack it up along with a bottle of Sobe strawberry kiwi and my book and head for my favorite hidden place in the woods-

The zeitgeist ‘rats are pushing
Is no longer ringing true-
The Catholic employers said
They won’t be told what to do

Like handing off to an insurer
And demanding that they provide
The services the Church will not-
That already has been tried

And as to that, most are self-insured
So in spite of all the braying
Obama can’t make that “accomodation”
When the Church would still be paying

I saw the bit on Fox on that lunch debacle-the school ended up eating crow and having to apologize because the lunch was not only “healthy” but actually better the school lunch. If someone fed my kid f***ing processed, fried chicken nuggets instead of a nice turkey and cheese sandwich, I’d be pissed, too. I hope the parents sue.

Nuggets are made just like those crab nuggets-chopped, formed chicken, fish, etc. It is all SPAM-S*** Posing As Meat. I don’t think it is real food.

The turkey was probably processed luncheon meat, but still......it’s the parent’s choice. I don’t do luncheon meat.....if I have a turkey sandwich, I cook up a turkey breast for the meat.
