The libs in the mainstream all jubilate
Over Barry’s success; they obnubilate
All the wrong he has done
(Wasn’t Benghazi fun?)
As the lies and misstatements accumulate

Easy peasy. The new violence against women act provides for white students to feel black and claim the benefits thereof. Similarly black students can get their superiority on by claiming whitey status. The students should deny authoritarian rule over their racial status by wearing each other’s wrist bands.

I’ve always felt that it’s the color of the wrist, not the color of the wristband, that is important. ;-)

They might have to cut back to 4 Guys.

(And witness the typical FReeper ignorance and idiocy. Muslims are exempt from Obamacare, McDonald’s is exempt from it and 5 Guys hires only illegals. The things we can learn.)

You believe that just because some FReeper said it?

Yesterday there were threads about “Ray’s Hell Burger” and that was supposed to be a place Obama went in DC.

No, it was a Pittsburgh Public School teacher, who lived in the Hill District and resisted officers at his door with a warrant.

the two funniest twitter stream items yesterday were ASKMOOCHELLE and the NYCmayor’s ofc tweet that they were going to appeal the overturning of the sugary soda ban and were sure it would be upheld.

It is astounding how many teacher/student affairs are going on - seems like we see one highlighted on tv at least once a week in the Houston area. It is usually sad looking white women and one, or more, teen age boys.....

There was another teacher in the suburbs trying to have a gay relationship with a student.

The newspaper just ran one story with the two incidents together.

I heard on the news that a pickup truck pulled up at a drilling site in PA, a window rolled down and a shotgun came out to blast some shots off amid some obscene yelling. Didn’t know there were libs in PA that owned a shotgun. I think libs are closet gun owners. Like Gabby Gifford’s louse...er spouse.

my fav dem driver who turned on Romney and voted 0, yelled the other night that he was NOT ever voting Dem again. Seems he isn’t happy with Cuomo’s plan to wait 2 more years to decide on drilling.

he’s a dead ringer for elton! i like justin, i think he’s funny and cute. xshub swears he’s a poofter, but i don’t think so. he’s had a string of women, and this isn’t the Rock Hudson era.

Sunny and 70, but still no accepted bids for compadre and I-

Acting like chicken little
As Obama’s minions have done
Has now begun to unravel
Spoiling all of their fun

Their efforts to obnubilate
Have made sequester a joke
Everyone sees through it-
Look at he fun they poke

Running like uncovered roaches,
Carney and the rest look dumb
We’ll laugh at the fake panic
For many, many years to come...

Y’all guys forgot “Beds Are Burning” by Midnight Oil-

The time has come
To say fair’s fair
To pay the rent
To pay our share

The time has come
A fact’s a fact
It belongs to them
Let’s give it back

How can we dance when our earth is turning?
How do we sleep while our beds are burning?”

etc, etc...

But ti-I heard that Ms Gifford’s spouse assured a reporter who asked him about the guns that he was “just testing the system”-I think someone needs to measure his nose every time he says that...

I’ve got my best pair of field glasses in my hiking lunch pack along with some water-I’m hiking to the top of the trail on the hill facing west at sunset to watch the comet for awhile. Got to be sure I get back before twilight ends, though...
