So, two years after the biggest Republican gains in the House since before World War II, Americans remain every bit as unimpressed with the way Obama is handling his job as president as they were then.
In 38 more days we throw the bum out! Look lively, talk to a Democrat and convert him.
Sorry, I used a new source and now they want you to sign up to access it. That is just plain wrong.
Rhathymia — easy spirit.
Hmm. Okay. I try to be cheerful, but it’s not as if I had an “Easy” button someone could operate to make me happy.
Never mind. I’m easy.
Anyway, I’ve tried to get into the humor and good nature of
“Ratatouille”, but the rhathymia still escapes me. It’s a rat, in a kitchen. Not funny.
Aww, I’ll check back with you on Nov 7th, if we win. ;^) A++
Where is everyone? 15 minutes after the bell and you are the only one to stagger in.
They’re all out doing homework.
You expect them to be happy without preparation?
I was in a state of rhathymia watching the 1968 Version of “The Producers” instead of the usual depressing newscasts.
The Obama Administration’s rhathymia has been replaced with morose dread as the 2012 elections loom large.
Obamots say “He’ll buy me a
Cell phone,” which brings them rhathymia
They get phones from the louse
But no free gas or house
I just laugh, singing “River, Cry Me A”
Just saw on twitter that Amb Rice blew off Netanyaho’s speech and went to lunch with Hillary instead. If they are not thrown out of office with a landslide we are doomed.
Cry me a river......whorealdo rivera was on Fox this morning still defending the coverup. RME
A+++ Where is that lady who Obama was going to save? No rent, no car payments, gas paid for......whatever. Hope she’s bitter.
I want to be there when he gets the news. I deserve it after all 4 years of this. A++
My escape is a long walk outside or some other exercise. My son put together my new recliner bike for an added choice in workout. I still like my elliptical best...I have a tv and vcr in front of me when I am on the elliptical. Watching Burn Notice on it while working out. A++
I sent a tweet about Whorealdo to Fox and Friends:
Geraldo says Bibi is incendiary. “He wants what he wants.” Yes, Mr. Rivera, he wants his nation to NOT get blown to bits!
oh, boy! Romney to meet with Netanyahu today, while Obama campaigns.
I walk Linda-The-Dog 3-5 Miles every morning. It’s a very relaxing and good time for both of us. :-)
what a lucky dog!
Rhathymia? I think my Uncle Bill had this. The doctor gave him some pills and told him to never eat asparagus.
Rhathymia is not my nature. Thus, I wake up in the middle of the night and watch whatever is on TV to make me fall asleep again. Last night it was half a British movie with Philip Saymour Hoffmann entitled “Pirate Radio”. It was so disturbing that I got up and looked it up on the Web and watched the rest of it. Therefore, I overslept, and that is why I’m late to class. Do I need a note?
BTW, I want to see the whole movie from the beginning.
Well, the water heater pilot light went out last night, and the Rbatherymia water this morning was frigid!!!!
Now THAT news puts me in rhathymia. The very suggestion that Romney should avoid meeting Netanyahu unless Obozo meets him first just fries my soul. Romney and Netanyahu were friends incollege, FGS.
Now what to wear, what to wear.....the blue shirt or the white....
here. finally. had to take xsteen down to union station. she had to go to NYC for the weekend for work. so 2 solid hours of aggravating traffic and construction at every turn. seriously a grown woman giving me the finger? that is so damn juvenile. i was so ready to get out of the car to rumble this AM!!
that video of the woman in Cleveland cackling about the free obama phones is HORRIFYING. that people like that are allowed to vote in his country is mindboggling. xshub was exchanging email with a dem friend of his. the other day he sent the Howard Stern interviews with obama voters. His friend replied with some SNL sketch, saying THIS is funny. xshub said, what? some actors playing roles? i sent you REAL people, who were interviewed BY A LIBERAL, those people are your co-constituents! then he sent the cleveland woman vid yesterday to say, here you go, MORE OF YOUR PEOPLE! He said how does it feel to be one of the 30% of white males voting for Obama? LOL!
We still have not determined “who rescued who.”
Oh yes...I have had doggies like that, but Linda-The-Dog is an absolute angel.
And to think that I was denied housing in a Florida “Over 55” Community, because she weighs over 35 pounds.
I am actually quite glad that happened, as I live in a place now that accepts Me, Linda, My Harley, and my Music.
I guess I am not ready for Bingo, Shuffleboard, and Line dancing just YET. LOL
That’s the movie about a Broadway show that they turned into a Broadway show and then made a movie about it, right?
yes, but NONE of the current stuff can hold a candle to the ORIGINAL.
I suppose Fox keeps him to maintain the "sane/insane" balance.
Are there any bad movies with Philip Seymour Hoffman in them?
Max (my Golden Retreiver) couldn’t even come up with an entry as a joke on this site. He never does anything wrong. Well, he’s not so good at retrieving. He quickly learned that I’m just going to throw the ball again, so he doesn’t bother to bring it back to me any more. Otherwise, he’s a perfect gentleman.
Of course the story line was preposterous! My husband worked on oil rigs in the North Sea in the 1970s and 80s. (He invented a lot of machinery and undersea pipeline connectors and was testing it, etc.) Those DJs wouldn't have lasted 2 minutes dressed like they were in the North Sea. But, it was a good movie anyway.
well julius caesar is full of Pee and vinegar. Mostly he’s a bawlbaby when he’s separated from me, we have the upstairs gated off with baby gates so they can’t go up there. so if i go upstairs to change etc. he stands at the bottom of the stairs looking up at me and bawls at the top of his lungs. another good trick is if their water bowl is empty, he picks it up in his mouth and carries it around and then drops it at my feet. no one taught him that, he did it on his own.
It’s so much worse than you think.
I’m doing some polling for a PAC in my spare time. I just started yesterday. It goes something like this.
Me: Question 2, what’s your opinion on Obamacare
Them: Repeal it
Me: Question 3 what do you think of coal and natural gas in your state
Them: More please
Me: Question 5, Who are you likely to vote for
Them: Obama or not sure.
I’m really starting to become a misanthrope.
Romney needs to show an ad with him saving companies while Obama rode the Choom Bus. Too funny. Very good ad. Love it and love Allen West. A++++
Hawaiian bound, come January next year. His last ride in our plane. A++++
Misanthropy is the only rational position.
LOL You will feel that way after you see it. A+++
Rain predicted, and the clouds and humidity are already here...
To achieve rhathymia today
We need some better news
And solutions from some people
With more realistic views
Than the current silly mantra
That has become the song
Of those who want to sit around
And get wasted with a bong
For all of the koolaid drinkers
On Obama’s downhill slide-
The trip may be nice-but look out
It’ll be an expensive ride...
A+++ or drink coffee.
A+++ awww, it’s pretty rare that you aren’t in hot water.
college friends? I thought they worked together. A+++
