We were hopeful that the Muslim riots spreading across the world would galvanize the mainstream media into telling the truth about their anointed one’s foreign policy failures. As they say in North Korea: “rotsa ruck.”

To prevent further grade inflation, I have re-scaled the curve. The highest grade will be A+++.

No pushing at the door please!

The “One” believes that wind, battery, and solar power are ready to replace coal, oil, and gas. This should make him “The Two.”

Galvanize around this story of missing minutes from the "Romney tape"! Don't let it die!

Did Ghost of Rosemary Woods 'Accidentally' Erase Part of Romney Tape?

Lies, exaggeration and obfuscation are pillars of leftist philosophy. In an honest discussion, with an informed electorate, Obama would carry D.C. Period.

Thank you very much for my grade!

Right.

Our so-called "news" media are unconscionable and no longer function as sources for news, but as creators of "news" which have proved to be lies and leftist spin in matters of extreme importance to both our national security and our presidential election.

That obscure film didn't cause the riots and American deaths in the Middle East, and the Marxist hasn't been vetted to this day, nor has he been grilled on any serious matter since he's been in office!

I am referencing the lamestream of course.

God bless and keep you. Your screen name is perfect. Stick with the truth Romney and win this one! The Palestinians have never wanted peace.

On “Talk Like A Pirate Day,” I always use a Spanish accent. I try to sound like Roberto Clemente.

Actually, the last two words in definition 2 should not be divided that way. Usually written as one word: Electrodeposition (”electro-deposition”).

This is the 40th anniversary of the Immaculate Reception, so that’s getting a lot of retrospective press.

It happened just a week before Clemente’s death. Talk about your highs and lows.

What’s a pirate’s favorite letter?

I don’t respond to coercion. Bribery, however, is another story. I’ll email my PayPal info to you. How does $10 for each + sound?

I’ve always thought that this is the funniest pirate joke:

A pirate returns from a year at sea, and goes into his favorite tavern. The bartender notices that the pirate is now sporting a wooden leg, a hook (in place of an arm,) and a patch over one eye.

“What happened to your leg?” asked the bartender.
“Cannonball nailed me. But this pegleg works just fine.”
“What about the arm?”
“Sword fight. But the hook works okay.”
“And your eye?”
“A sea gull crapped in it?”
“Wait—you lost an eye to bird poop?”
“Well, it was my first day with the hook.”

Oh that was funny...... needing to start the day laughing. My daughter had a wreck yesterday...well, some foreigner rammed into the back of her at a red light. She’s ok (my daughter, not the fat stupid foreigner) - but car is demolished. I’m thankful and angry at the same time.

Glad your daughter is all right. Is Obama
going to prosecute her for stopping at a red light and
thus impeding the progress of a foreigner?

By the way, love your tag line.

Good question - The husband arrived and seemed more concerned about not getting to choose his own tow company instead of the vultures who were already on scene. I didn't care - the car is totaled and I just wanted it off the road.

Any advice on handling this? Do we contact an attorney or just deal with insurance company? The car was just paid off in July and I hate for her to have a car payment now. We are fairly confident that this woman never hit her brakes - no skid marks and my daughter never heard anything before being hit - she would have looked up if she had heard someone skidding. So this woman may have been dialing a phone or reading something - since even the sunglasses flew off my daughters head it seems unlikely this woman's cell phone wouldn't have flown and it was "quickly" in her hand
