115 days till we throw the bum out! IF Obama thinks it’s hot this summer, wait till he simmers on election night as the final polls are taken.
The character “Mrs. Snow” from Pollyanna comes to mind...
P: “I’ll come back tomorrow!”
Mrs: “If I’m not dead by then...”
FRiday the 13th leads to Saturday the 14th! I am sure SD knows that classic.
Some California valetudinarians may also be Valley ‘tudenarian....
Right! Remember this: “Ya hear that Elizabeth? I’m coming to join ya!”..as he grabs his chest.
Michelle 0bama patterned her look after Aunt Esther,
though MO would inherently reject Esther’s faith.
CA cannot be described as value -tudinarian. They waste tax dollars faster than a hooker fakes an orgasm.
Joe Biden is valetudinarian in the head. Did I just read where he told the NAACP that “blacks should be educated to the extent they are educable”? Does that sound demeaning to anyone else? Methinks ol’ Joe was educated beyond the point he was educable.
I think Biden confuses them. Look what happened with Obama, he called him a clean black man and gets to be VP? Makes no sense, unless Obama was too dim a bulb to get it. A++
A++ Obama is something else indeed.
As Valetudinarian Percy had to give a speech at my high school parole hearing, also known as “graduation”. Everyone at Clemency High said Percy had a great attitude and some value to someone somewhere and so was a Valetudinarian in spite of looking kinda sickly.
I used to think my sister-in-law was a hypochondriac, but now I realize she is a valetudinarian.
Obama feels valetudinarian
Call a doc, wait! a veterinarian
‘cause his record’s a dog
No pluses to catalog
Since he’s naught but a platitudinarian
I still think the hair plugs damaged his brain.
I loved Sanford and Son.
As Redd said:
"Beauty is skin deep but ugly goes all the way to the bone."
I don’t think he said blacks but rather youth/kids. Marginally less racist.
But the fact remains, he is a moron, on stilts.
That is incontrovertible fact right there.
Slow Joe was always the dumbest man in the senate, and he had stiff competition.
OK. I apologize. Biden just has to open his mouth and steam comes out of my ears.
You should have heard what I had to say to my Pastor when he named Biden as a “great Catholic American who has made a difference in our nation” in his 4th of July letter to the parish. Fr. Tom, who is very interested in OUR Stewardship, was shocked when I pointed out that dear ol’ Joe gave an average of $379 per YEAR to charity of all sorts over 10 years. He gave NOTHING to any Catholic church last year. He did give $500 to his Diocese, but NOTHING else. He wife gave to her Presbyterian Church, but not a lot. Most of their donations were in the form of used clothes.
Then I hit him with how many times ol’ Joe has supported (publicly) Roe v. Wade. Scandal!
Father mumbled something about “I was trying to be evenhanded”, because he had also mentioned John Roberts and JFK in his tribute. I just rolled my eyes.
I asked him “Why not Mary Ann Glendon?” and he was quick to say, “I wish I’d thought of her.”
My husband came up behind me and said, jokingly, “If you think it is hard being her Pastor, try being her husband!” Everybody laughed, but Father Tom will be getting a letter from me about every 2 weeks on Founding Fathers and Catholics who SHOULD be honored.
I had someone insist yesterday, that he did not suggest partitioning Iraq.
Denial isn’t just a river in Egypt.
Always something going on in Changeville. A++
A slight distinction, yes. Frequent Flyers come in both varieties. We call them EMS “specials”.
A+++ Outstanding! We will all be flocking to vets when we can’t find a doctor.
Good for you AFTR!
I just have to brag on the new assistant pastor we just got. OMGosh.....he mentioned abortion and how we are NOT good Catholics if we are not ardently opposed to it. Said “we the faithful” have to evangelize the other Catholics who have fallen. I sat right up and listened to every single word he said. I was so impressed. God bless him. Fr. Brian Carpenter. A hero. I looked for him after mass, but he was out front and I was parked out back. I am so excited to go to mass now.
and btw ANY pastor who holds up an abortion politician as a good example is diluting his faith....when he gets to Heaven he will hear the words “And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity.” Matt7:23 A pastor has a duty to not lead us astray. Good for you to evangelize your own pastor.
A+++ With Slow Joe as a vaudevillian act? LOL Should get some amusing footage out of both.

We have a new assistant Pastor too. He is from Colombia and was formerly a Military Policeman and was nearly killed. He was just ordained and speaks pretty good English. He’s been here about 4-5 years, so he came to milwuakee under Dolan. We have had a lot of good seminarians that were attracted to the priesthood by Cardinal Dolan when he was our Archbishop.
I haven’t heard a homily from him yet, but I’m hoping for good things. He’s excellent one on one. And handsome. Handsome always helps! He looks like he just stepped out of “The Greater Glory”. The interesting thing is that he has a Middle Eastern first name — Fr. Yamid Blanco — the Y is pronounced like J. Jah-meed’. I’ll have to hear the story about that. Maybe his mother was Lebanese.
When he got out of the military (after his near death experience) he was going to study law, but accepted a colleague’s invitation to apply to the Seminary in Milwaukee because of Abp. Dolan. He has 5 cousins who are priests. God Bless the Blanco family.
It sounds like He already has!
My husband would have given you a standing ovation for that response to your pastor in re Biden! Bravo to you.
THAT is fantastic, i am so happy for you guys. it’s about time some fresh air blew into Catholic churches in upstate NY and blew out the heretical stink!
I speak Spanish and have spent time in Colombia. I also googled the name Yamid and even though it sounds middle eastern i could find nothing that indicated arabic derivation for it, and the only people named Yamid that it turned up on google were FROM COLOMBIA, so it could be that the name has some significance to the country? Several Colombian baseball players are named Yamid apparently.
Waiting for the 3D imax show. You may roll your eyes at space, but you’ll like this.
If you brought your dogs they have a free air conditioned kennel space for them while you visit.
Obama is running out of smoke
And shiny mirrors to explain
Why most of us know he left us
Standing broke, out in the rain
I suppose that the next “story”
His minions are directed to tell
Is that he’s been too valetudinarian
To see plainly the road to hell
That he has sent us speeding on-
If he is concerned he might be ill
He needs a psychologist for that-
Preferably one with plenty of skill...
I swear he is has a major emotional problem-now he thinks if he becomes story-teller in chief people will learn to like no work, no money for bills, ramen noodles and hamburger helper to eat every day with salad as a treat? If I were a casemanager for his employer I’d recommend a psych eval for him before he got a dime of workers comp benefits...
“humans have sex” Apparently, that instructor either does not, or is kinky-he is a voyeur, at the very least-he needs to be sued...
did you get my email pic of xsteen with Sid’s dryer? also has pix of his school uniform and report cards....
I had a roommate in college who was a sociology major and she had a class in Human Sexuality, and the days they showed sex films, the room was always packed. BTW, she dropped out one semester shy of graduating. I guess she noticed what the job market would be and went back to waitressing.
That is interesting to know! Someday when I have the oppotunity, I’ll ask him about it. When we were anticipating his arrival, we were trained to say Yah’- meed. Oooops! We were quickly re-trained the day of his arrival to say Jah - meed’. In any case, he seems like a eally nice guy.
Oh, mine did. I stepped in to keep my husband from giving him “what-for”. He might have gotten us ex-communicated!
My husband did get his 2 cents in by muttering “serial adulterer in the White House” at the mention of JFK. But his crack about “you should be glad you are not married to her” caused the pastor to crack up, and that broke the tension.
Ya meed is fine. The Ja is really a nuanced Y sound. I don’t have the phonetic vocab to describe it but you put your tongue on the roof of your mouth behind your front teeth to pronounce the Y sound and it ends up a little like a J.
