Let’s go, early birds. I’m making the return trip from Texas to New Jersey this afternoon. I’ll be losing one hour and about 30 degrees.

All (normal) marriages are exogamous — a man leaves his tribe and marriages a woman who is from a different tribe.
Now a 1% group of perverts want to make marriages endogomous.

Exogamy was one of the things that Esau did to displease the Lord. That and vowing to kill his brother. Yes, I’m knee-deep in Genesis lately.

Thomas Perez is a pretty horrifying individual. One of the biggest differences between them is she was dumb as a post and he’s quite smart.

Trying to add to the Obama legacy of selective prosecution.
We’ve already learned, from Eric Holder, that it’s okay for Blacks to intimidate Whites at the polls because there had been suppression of Black voters in the 1950s. And slavery.

I was delighted when Mrs. Truth showed me that she had hundreds of dollars in T J Maxx bucks. It finally dawned on me that you only get those by spending thousands.

She uses a TJ Maxx credit card. It’s a Visa card. She says she gets the bucks back from Marshall’s and Homegoods as well.

i’ve always resisted getting their credit card, but maybe it’s a good idea. I think i knew Marshalls and Homegoods were also related. i love those stores, but TJMaxx is the best IMO.

Actually, ANYONE who did not vote for him were so accused. For an all-inclusive party, there’s a lot of racism in the base.

You can apply for TJ Maxx Rewards card on line. You get 5% back. Don't even think about keeping a balance, as interest rates approach loanshark levels, near 30%. Some good info here.

Well, it’s the biggest tribe that we all belong to — brotherhood and sisterhood. LOL.

I’ve always said that all marriages are mixed by their very definition — man and woman. Adding other elements just further complicates matters. Of course, I came to that conclusion years before anybody thought up the perversion called same-sex marriage!

You’re going to miss our next cold front-it may freeze again here next week...

Since Dr. Carson and others
Are spreading some information
Of being a prisoner with a vote
Liberals need a new plantation

Now, fresh out of ethnic victims
They had to find another group-
So they found a strange exogamy
For the emperor’s circus hoop-

But don’t call them “homosexual”
Now, everyone says they’re “gay”-
But even that polite euphemism
Won’t change reality in any way...

Gays just won’t marry out of their tribe. (cue Seinfeld voice) Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Probably checking for explosive residue. They put the swab into a machine and it took 5 seconds to clear her.

I bought Husky girl a bottle of the Cosamine they advertise on Animal Planet, from the online pet supply-it seems like a good idea to keep her limber-after all, I like the human equivalent.

The label said chewable tablets that dogs are supposed to like. Well, not this dog-after she spat the thing into her dish twice, she only ate it when I wrapped it up in a bit of leftover grilled chicken. You’d think that someone could come up with a flavor dogs really like for that price.

LOL My dog could separate the pill from melted cheese in less than 10 seconds and strut away leaving the pill spit out on the floor. She would act haughty about it. RME I buy pill pockets now, she can’t eat them fast enough.
