The Rom/Obam contradistinction
Will lead to the latter’s extinction
Despite Mr. Akin
Who has our hearts breakin’
With his selfish display of rat-fink-tion
Good Morning! Will be leaving to see my girlies and little man later. Cannot wait! Also, my BIG anniversary is tomorrow. 40 years!
Taking the family to see 2016 tonight. My wife didn’t know what it was.
My conservative republican neighbor came over with the title written down on paper so she could tell me about it. LOL She met a TEA party lady at the gym who told her and was all excited.
I find that ad spooky. A+++
will be interested to see the audience reaction up your way too. i’m excited to go.
I read D’Sousa’s book, so I know the history and colonial mindset theme. I’m interested to see how he projects the future.
I asked our resident scholar about this contradistinction word and he explained it:
A skunk is kinda pretty looking varmint from a distance but but they are contra too if they wanna be and the stinction can be fierce so much that normal folks “dis” (short for distance) you unless you splash on lots of Blue Waltz to take the edge off.
There ya go...contradistinction...just like boiled okra...don't look too bad but for the life of me I can't stand deliberately swallowing something I'd normally cough up...worse than swallowing a fresh squeezed toad.
A neighbor asked me the other day, “when did it become wrong to get rich in this country?”
Congrats on the anniversary I missed reading this earlier!!
