“Potvaliant” sounds like he should be Bluntman and Chronic’s new superfriend.

Shouldn’t this be when someone is high on pot, not booze?

Potvalient on the intoxicant of a stolen election, the left may tip its hand right over the fiscal cliff.

One would think, but this dates back to when people apparently kept their booze in pots.

I am of the opinion that the left will come out smelling like a rose on the raised taxes and we will just look like mean old rich people who hate anyone who isn't white.

The lying dem machine just has to say the word "racism" and the GOP bows and scrapes. They blame us for everything - our fault poor children and the elderly will starve because they can't get their checks. The Rich will party (except for the dems because their parties are exempt) while not paying anything in taxes... So the GOP will cave so they don't look mean and obam won't cut any spending and we will face this again in 6 months, a year? Soon.

James B. Gallone, no age available, of Greensburg, grabbed a container of Colt 45 malt liquor and attempted to leave a Hempfield Towers apartment at 8 p.m. Thursday after an argument with Vanessa L. Robinson, 28, state police said.
Police said Robinson became “enraged over him taking the final beer” and began punching and kicking Gallone, who then emptied the beer onto the floor.
Robinson allegedly stabbed Gallone multiple times with a butcher knife

Maybe the gov’t should give out “beer stamps” so this type of tragedy doesn’t happen again.

Yes, beer stamps, as a way of moving towards beer justice.

I should point out by “tragedy” I meant the spilling of the final beer. The guy wasn’t killed.

And the correlate word, ‘sotvalient’, quite naturally describes a person who becomes potvaliant on a daily basis.

That reminds me of the guy who visits a psychiatrist while dressed only in Saran Wrap. Doc says: "I can CLEARLY see your nuts."

If the economy is truly so fragile that it can not withstand the withdrawal of the trillions of made-up money the gov’t is supposedly injecting into it without collapsing, isn’t it better that we return to a sustainable level quickly. Rip the band aid off?

That's exactly how it will go down, and the majority, slim as it is, will think it's good because they are freakin IDIOTS!

65, the fog is lifting here and I’m praying my compadre will call with some work from the bids we did last week...

I would really like to see
Obama’s minions’ secret bills-
How much ego-booster is needed
To convince them of their skills?

When they become potvaliant
What substance do they use?
And are they sober or stoned
To promote those insane views?

The WFTD can be used two ways,
And the first refers to liquor-
That may be cheap and acceptable
But a few tokes are probably quicker...

We’re in the high 60s today - maybe hit the record of 70. Then it’s back to the 40s.

of course it's FULL of LDS floggers, bc FR lives for that crap. but honestly, if we are as depressed as we are, can you imagine him? He clearly didn't do it for the fame and glory and i do believe he is patriotic and wanted to help the US achieve prior glory. if WE think the country is circling the bowl, imagine what sort of second guessing you would be doing in Romney's position.

I heard yesterday that he’s going to be on the board of Marriott. So that will give him something to get out of bed for once a month.

74 here now-it seems there is a jet stream thingee draped over the middle of everything, keeping the coldest air up in and near Canada, and most of the rest of us are balmy for awhile. I’m going to enjoy it while it lasts...

I don’t read those threads once I see the badmouthing, no matter what denomination the subject is. That kind of bashing by fellow Christians isn’t what I was taught was a Christian attitude at all, and I do not see the point of frothing at the mouth and yelling “Satan” like some 16th century Spanish inquisitor every time someone’s beliefs in God don’t match one’s own in every tiny detail.

Aha! My compadre just called and said he’s just on the way here, bringing a carpenter of our acquaintance who is willing to trade out the heavy curb appeal work on my property that women are not built to do. Thank God-I need that stuff done to get the best price for this place. I’m eager to get a place further into the woods here in the neighborhood-it only takes money...

Very nice day out. Sky is blue, sun is shining and it’s a fine day for a walk in short sleeves......which I just did. Teacher spared the 5th grader homework, so he is out enjoying it.
