TOPICS: Word For The Day
KEYWORDS:
Mitt Romney grew a pair and called out the Senate fainéant, Harry Reid, to provide proof of his allegations. Reid has claimed that Romney paid no income taxes for 10 years, which Romney flatly denies. Romney told Reid to "put up or shut up". This is providing us a summer playground diversion as the days tick off to NOvember. Reid has time to make these statements from the floor of the Senate, where there is still no budget for years.

LASlimes is the source.

Deja vu? I thought this word was used a few weeks ago.

Maintenant avons nous un homme faineant dans la Maison Blanche. Merde!!!!



Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

I'm already laughing at the way count-your-change is going to define this one.

Did Speaker Boehner say that Obama was a faineant? Pretty much.

Obama, Monsieur Cool, très fainéant
When he speaks, he’s like Ipecac, nauseant
The one wish I’ve had
Is that his mom and dad
Would have failed all attempts to be procreant

I’d be surprised if the First Wookie, Mean Michelle Owe-bama, didn’t hear the word Fainéant used to describe her on one of her many, many taxpayee funded vacations.

Pig.

Good one, again.

When folks talk about the birther issue, I think they are missing something that, at least to most women, really stands out as a huge red flag regarding the story that Stanley Ann married the African.

Stanley Ann graduates high school in May or June and the family packs up and moves to Hawaii. She starts university that fall and by December is pregnant with little BHO. She is 17 years old - has a baby on Aug 4, three weeks later is enrolled in the U of Washington, with a THREE WEEK OLD BABY and has left her new husband in Hawaii.

She was only in her second year of college so no rush to get to another university since the first two years are basics in most areas. A three week old baby and a barely 18 year old mother would need a grandmother to help out - and she left her husband? None of this makes any sense.

Faineant

Today is a sad day in Atkinsonville. It seems Louis’ father, Louison, passed away for the third time this month. He suffered from these faineant spells everytime he tried to rise from his lounger. Keeping a t.v. going in front of him helped to relieve the faineanting.

Louison, who was known as Louis senior at the time, tried out for a baseball team and became known as the Louisville Sluggard, a title he's worn with pride since ‘53.

Well, I have to get over to the print shop and pick up some new birth and death certificates from Louison’s cousin, Louis junior, so Louison can collect the insurance for his next spell of passing away.

I'm getting a little choked up here.

Obama’s minions have sympathy
For the fainéant on the dole
Forgetting that many of us
Keep together body and soul

With duct tape and prayers
And what little work we find-
Doing without and hoarding
Every dollar we can find

If that bunch lived like us
For a day, walked in our shoes
They’d understand the working poor
With a reason to sing the blues

They have no sympathy for the poor, they just covet their votes to the point of buying them with our hard earned $. A+++

Thank you!

The only time they feign sympathy, or do anything remotely charitable, it is with someone else’s money...

So true T- punish those who work hard for their families and give to those who don’t care enough to even try.

Reporter : So Mr. President you took some heat from conservative talk radio about how Mrs. Obama 'doesn't go all the way down'....How far would that be exactly?

Big story on the evening news last night. They reported live from the Greensburg Chick-Fil-A that absolutely nothing happened there today.

On the 10 o’clock news they showed about a dozen people protesting at the store at the Waterfront.

We need a commercial that highlights the reckless Dems who have not produced a budget for 1200 days and counting. Spending has always been a Dem downfall, pin it on them. Make them wear it like a dunce cap.

No homos in WestMoCo. ;-)

The Waterfront is the entertainment/shopping complex built on the former Homestead Works.
