It looks as if most republican legislators will die intestate, because they don’t seem to have any will.

Intestate

This is an official made up word for explaining why your homework isn’t done: The dog ate my homework so it’s in test ate. My dog has eaten so much homework we call him Test Ate so my homework is intestate.

It’s early...what can I say?

They don't have any testes either, now, do they?

Since I have no assets, (and no testes either), I guess that’s how I will die.

The government isn’t going to wait for us to die intestate to take all of our belongings — they are just going to take them while we’re still alive.

Good morning. Will it even matter if we die intestate after this regime is done with us? There won’t be anything left to pass along

With the help of a compliant media, the lib playbook is working like a charm. To wit:

Megastorm Sandy caused megabucks in damages, and it is obvious to all that massive relief funds are needed. So, the dems put up a relief bill that is laden with pork, putting the republicans into the usual quandary—damned if you do, and damned if you don’t.

If republicans trash the bill because of the un-Sandy-like extras the dems put in, the media will show poor, newly homeless people in NY or NJ who are unable to get assistance because republicans won’t sign off on the bill.

If republicans go along with the bill, they are contributing to an ever-increasing deficit, and aiding liberal strongholds such as unions and the environmental whackos.

Our side never seems to learn how the game is played. We keep bringing a knife to a gunfight, keep playing checkers while they are playing chess. Just once, I’d like to hold up a democrat-favored bill (how about the increase in the debt ceiling?) by sticking in a poison pill such as, oh, I don’t know—making Voter IDs mandatory.

no one knows that. there is extensive pre-trib/post-trib eschatology and it’s all conjecture. Only God knows the date and the time, and it could be any time. Besides its the protestants that go around the bend with the pre-post trib stuff!

“Something else?”

Since you asked...That came from our local bartender who happens to be profoundly blind. No worries though, he swears he can tell the difference between the drinks by putting his finger into the liquid and by all accounts he’s right well accurate.

Now the more fastidious reader might say this is “unsanitary” but the barkeep has very clean hands despite working at the garage and putting in cheap pace makers during the day.
Besides, he licks the booze off between drinks.

A couple of more years of Liberals Gone Wild might finally get this country to bottom out, like a drunk waking up from a two-week bender, and give us the will to head in the opposite direction. By that time, however, in many areas we will be so far past the point of no return that no rehab would be possible.

Sunny and 39-still no work, but nothing is going to happen that is good in the midst of the chaos-

Obama keeps channeling Nixon-
The reason is anyone’s guess
No “king” has died intestate
And left us all with a mess

Like Nixon, he has caused it
With his thirst for control
But neither of them thought
Beyond that self serving goal

We’ll be better if he resigns
Like Nixon did, we’d be ahead-
Instead of having royal rule
We’d have interregnum instead

I think it’s like the family that knows bankruptcy is inevitable. So they go on a cruise, buy some new clothes, etc.

we will all die intestate
while rich libs live behind a gate

not a care for America’s fate.

I know this news will cast a pall of sadness over the forum...but it appears that rap artiste Shawty Lo may well die intestate.
Oxygen channel has announced that "All My Babies' Mamas" has been cancelled before the first episode aired.

Brings a tear to your eyes, don't it?
