Obama’s Deceptive Hidden Premises is an article that exuviates the many layers of theO's devious gollymaufry of a tenebrific minatory health care bill. He is a panjandrum who will get his comeuppance in November. As you will recall, we had to pass this bill to find out what was in it, as San FRan Nan told us. The cacography is now on the wall, and it's frightening.

Cause I am a brown-noser, here is another homework:

did you see the guy that exuviates his clothes before heading into a Walmart to get some socks. The 45 second youtube video is the middle of the thread is priceless.

What is exfoliating more acceptable to ladies than exuviating?

Exuviate.

“When making whang leather from the hides of dogs, coons, ground hogs, etc. always scrap away the exuviate, (the flesh and fat) until the hide is smooth and clean. Cut the hide into thin strips for sewing horse collars and work boots for which it is oncommonly suited.”
(The Atkinsonville Guide for Young Married Folks, pg. 30089)

Other chapters show how to hammer and swage a 42 inch circular sawblade and build rat proof corn cribs and treat scours in calves.

I have a green yard, too-winter weeds that only grow when it is mild-so much prettier than bare earth and rocks. Raining and 54 today-I had a bid to type this morning, so did not hike-but if it lets up for a spell this afternoon, I’ll go hiking for awhile and enjoy some seed and plant gathering in the mist-the plants will stay nice and fresh and not wilt.

Just look at all the sunshine
Turned on Media Matters and such-
They claimed once to be “news”
But they’re not really so much

Now that they’ve had to exuviate
That fake claim of being fair
We see they are really underhanded
And now that everyone is aware

Their undeserved tax exempt status
Could be summarily yanked, at best
Proving again their meaning of “is”
Doesn’t pass the olfactory test

If you’re using the IPOD you really need Bose Triports.

About 99 bucks at best buy. ( a fraction if what you paid for the music and IPOD)

You can put me on your Cristmas card list afterward.....

Welcome to my nightmare on now

You'd think there would be one person around him to teach him how to do things, just to make the rest of them look better, but they're all naked emperors. And it is not pretty.
Did you hear Paul Ryan vs. Timmy Taxcheat yesterday? Classic.

Anyone who supposedly can’t figure out how to use the same TurboTax most of use without screwing up should not even be trusted to price out a grocery list, in my opinion. I seem to remember that the tax he owed due to a “little mistake” was about the size of the national debt of a small 3d world country...

It’s even worse. He was paid with a check specifically to cover his taxes and then claimed he didn’t know he had to pay the taxes.

I thought that was laughable, too-anyone who works as contract labor knows that they are responsible for paying their own taxes.

I don’t watch many movies, but I’m going to check out the 2009 Star Trek on FX tonight-the one that is supposed to show what insane stuff the characters of the original series did when they were first assigned to the big “E” as brash young officers. It sounds amusing-have y’all seen it?

Is it just me, or is this Whitney Houston thing Michael Jackson deja vu? I don’t understand why her death is more of a “tragedy” than any other family’s loved one who died as a result of substance abuse, unless it is because her hangers-on/enablers won’t be able to push her onto a stage in a lucid moment to make more money for them...

As soon as the deluge stopped this morning, I went wood gathering and spread it out to dry under the trees in front of the garage, noticing that the gutter over the garage doors is full of leaves. I came inside to get a cup of coffee, an apple and some yogurt for breakfast, and turned on the TV to see some of the business shows and some news.

Once the business shows were over, the coverage switched to a crowd of people in NJ talking about Whitney Houston as though her demise happened in a plane crash, or some other accident. I turned it off, worked on a bid-they are still eulogizing, so I’m going to fetch a ladder and clean that gutter...
