Obama and his pet, Susan Rice, have attempted latitudinarian foreign policy and now we have Israel being bombed. First sirens since Gulf War. Obama's world. Rice's record at the U.N. on Israel is horrendous.

Good morning. Latitudinarian sounds like a fancy word for cafeteria Catholics.

The dems claim they’re latitudinarian
But my take is somewhat contrarian
They push, without caution
For Catholic abortion
All policies Rat-atudinarian

Secret was in so early she had to make the coffee fer the teacher .....

If you don’t care where you are while traveling, you might be a Latitudinarian.

If you really don’t care where you are while traveling, you are both a Latitudinarian and a Longitudarian.

But if you forget a fine for overdue books while not caring where or when you are while traveling, you are definitely a Libraridinarian.

Public schools and other quasi governmental organizations can no longer be termed latitudinarian — they have no tolerance for Christians.

And speaking of missing, I’m also missing my Libraridirian.

Latitudinarian

We’re not going to get technical with a word that has that many letters and some twice or more. So let’s just skim the top of our brains: Latitudinarian is someone who studies Latins who have an attitude.
Example, I go home and both pizzas from Little Caesars are gone. What does the wife say? “Et tu...Brutalus!”

See what I mean? Next time I hide her dentures in the cat box and let’er gum her pepperoni. Latitudinarian is a tough job.

On another thread this morning, Desert Rhino posted this link to Mark Twain’s SCATHING review of James Fennimoore Cooper’s work. Wordsmiths should be interested in all of the ways he denigrates poor Cooper.

The latitudinarian Weltanschaung of the average American stands in stark contrast to the dogmatism of the Islamists.

The term latitudinarian does not refer to how much space you take on a loveseat.

Your poem made me think of something - perhaps the reason radical feminists and liberals are so crazy pushing abortion is a hope to kill off more Christians? Since we raise our children with the same values/morals/religious beliefs, maybe they feel killing them off will lower our numbers? I saw an idiot liberal black woman (MSNBC) who claimed we were against abortion to raise the numbers of WHITES in America.... that idiot didn’t realize she was supporting genocide since her race is 12% of the population and accounts for closer to 50% of abortions. Dumb ass.

54 and cloudy, but the sun is making an attempt to come out...

Obama and his minions pretend
A latitudinarian attitude-
But that just doesn’t go with
Being divisive, criminal and rude

They think themselves partician
And above all those silly rules-
They encourage koolaid drinking
Among all their idiots and fools

When their delusions come to ruin
And are open to every avid look
This mob owned pres will join another-
Namely Nixon, his fellow crook...

I’m reminded of Nixon more all the time-especially the bravado and bluster-so similar...

Dumbasss is right-was she related to that female member of congress who said (a few years ago) that she supported “choice” because her mother couldn’t have an abortion?

I can’t remember knowing but four or five women who have actually aborted a baby-and only one of them was caucasian (hispanic).

“when they just stop making Twinkies?”

Admittedly, I didn’t/don’t buy sugary snacks or white bread for my family, but I guarantee the niche left by Hostess products will be filled by (with?) Little Debbies or the like-no one will be jonesing for that stuff for long...

Pan Bimbo, anyone?

If I want something sweet I share a dessert with DH while out to dinner or I buy some expensive chocolate and ration it out to myself. That junk food just does not appeal to me. I bake once or twice a month for the fire station, but not any more than that. I will bake for Thanksgiving and holidays as well. DH buys that junk and eats it, I shun it. I will not buy it for him, either.

(OK...full disclosure: I was stressed beyond reason...my heart kept racing (PACs really). I spent a day or two eating butterfingers around Halloween recently. It didn’t really help my stress but the sugar high gave me momentary relief. ;^) Butterfingers and I have since called off our affair. No bitterness, no regrets.)

Oh, I do love the taste of dark, barely-sweet chocolate once in a blue moon-when I have that lust, I get a mini-bar of Russell Stover sugar free dark chocolate, and enjoy it very, very slowly, like good wine...

Just about the only thing I bake is bread for my use and for barter with neighbors for fresh eggs, honey, etc.

I bake pumpkin bread for Thanksgiving. That’s about it. I like the Sam’s Club pumpkin pie too much to bother baking. I get a couple around Thanksgiving and Christmas.

You can get most of the Bimbo brands here at stores that cater to Latinos-I go to one that also has a Tex-Mex deli, Farmers’ market on Tuesdays, and so forth-one of those places that has a sign saying “barbacoa Sabado y Domingo”, and a brake-and-tire shop out back...

My daughter is fond of the Marinela snack cakes-the ones that are like Little Debbies-she stocks up every time we go there, and her weight shows it-about 25 extra pounds.

HEB also has a lot Bimbo products and Orowheat stuff, which I think is also owned by Bimbo.

They just recently started using the “Bimbo” brand on some bread products here.

If we had any Latino markets here I’d get some Japanese style cacahuates.

Well, I'm up in North Carolina right now, but apparently my father-in-law is flying over Texas dropping pumpkins on innocent dirt.

Got this from a recent email from him ....

Saturday I went to the Fault Line Flyers airfield near Briggs Texas. Bill S. had invited me. This was their annual Pumpkin Drop event. Bill flew the two seat glider and I sat in back and dropped a pumpkin from a thousand feet. The first drop was fair but not great. I thought we would do better on the second drop but we actually did worse. A pumpkin kicks up a lot of dust on the dry ground from a thousand foot drop. Bill did great on the spot landing after the drop, especially after the second drop. Lots of fun.
