Something is agley about this picture.............especially to all the victims of Hurricane Sandy who are still not in their modest homes...while Obama lounges poolside in Hawaiii. No heat, no water, no electric...no roof over their heads. All those lemmings who voted for Obama should take note of theWon's lifestyle.

Good news:
Luke 2:10-11
10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.

Rev 22:20
20 He who is the faithful witness to all these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon!”

Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!

The agely details of HIllary’s “concussion” eventually will surface. The good news is that this ploy should spell the end of her influence on the national scene.

Robbie Burns was first to say:
“The best-laid schemes...gang aft agley.”

A quote that says bad folks will pay
Is “Every dog will have have its day”

Obama’s schemes lead us astray
Enough that voters will say “nay”

To spending cash in every way
And loving windmills, and all things gay

We need some light—a shaft, a ray
To lead us from this disarray

The liberal dragon, we must slay
We’ll find a spark, a counterplay

Agley

Another way of saying ugly, “Thet sure is an agley monkey you got there, Lady! Your baby? Awry! He must look more like his daddy if you know who he is.”

Some people it’s just hard to say nice things about.

A little Bobby Burns quote:

"The best laid schemes o' Mice an' Men,
Gang aft agley,
An' lea'e us nought but grief an' pain,
For promis'd joy!"


A cautionary note for our "leaders" in the Executive and Legislative branches.

I cut my walk short at 8, came back and started doing invoices for the little bit of work in December-even a nature freak like me is not into hiking on a rocky trail with light rain and snow/sleet when it is 37...

All the accounts are really agley
Concerning Hillary and her woes
I think her job is the problem
And now it certainly shows

Is she really being paid enough
To get dragged into all this grief-
Risking her health and credence
For the egotistical idiot in chief?

Even though I think Bill rules her
I’m sympathetic, I must confess-
She managed to let herself be used
As the smokescreen in this mess

Things are gonna get agley in the cities when the mob is outta bread and circuses-let us be glad we do not live there...
