73 Days till we VOTE the bum OUT! Get busy, spread the word....talk to a liberal. Talk to the Republicans. We have momentum....WORK IT!
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!!
What is wrong with the ‘rat party-?
They must live in confusion
What they “see” as reality
Is obviously a delusion
Despite the contradistinction
Between policies in this race
They desperately cling to Obama-
They worship his words and face
Their baseless hero worship
Is certainly one for the books-
It reminds me of Carter or Nixon
With their idiots and crooks
Makes perfect sense. A+++
Thanks. Been quite a ride!
A+++ Excellent! I think O will go down in the history books as worse than Carter, and that is saying something.
i hope you are getting a nice dinner out somewhere, for 40 years!
Off to see my girlies. BBL tonight.
Thank you and happy anniversary!
We have a contradistinction in this house with the new dog compared to our former collies. They did not mind the cat and only barked when necessary or while playing together. This new dog consistently tries to attack the cat and barks much more than any dog should. I miss my old dogs. This one is not a good replacement but he needed us. Now I have to chase his big bohunkus off the leather couch again for the THIRD TIME TODAY! There’s a lot to be said for raising a dog yourself and not having to deal with this nonsense that goes along with rescues.
Quiz: Who said it: Joe Biden or Michael Scott?
Everyone’s too busy planning how they’re gonna force a brokered convention next week.
Excuse me. I need to run out and buy some stock in tin foil :)
Here’s how you can tell who said what. Does the stupidity make you pity him? Then it’s Michael Scott. Does it make you want to blast him for being such an idiot? Then it’s obviously bidenblather. That one was bidenblather.
This season of The Office will be the last. Mercifully. I don’t know if I can handle any more.
Robert California ruined it. Have you seen Longmire yet? It’s not a funny show, but it’s good.
Yes, California was a bad character. Then Nellie came along. Even worse.
Haven’t seen “Longmire.”
Thats right....R&R, is gonna give way to the new R&R...Ron and Rand...
I liked her better as Donna Noble in Dr. Who.
If they’re gonna do stuntcasting for the final season, and you know they will, they should bring David Tennant on.
My all-time favorite Dr. Who!!! Eccleston is my second fave.
I need one for my mafia.
Cutest thing ever and sends a msg!
Just saw on tv here where sheila jackson lee announced she has been battling breast cancer this past year —— but is now cancer free
Well God bless her. I suppose. I won’t wish anyone ill.
Maybe mute...not ill ;)
I wish her a speedy recovery, of course-and a come-to-Jesus moment for her nearly always hateful mouth, too...
