TOPICS: Word For The Day
KEYWORDS:
Our futilitarian President and his minions believe the individual doesn't count, only the government should think for us. We came to these shores for a higher ideal than that, for individual freedom. Not sure that exists much anymore since we have to slave away while government takes our wages to give to others. Wealth redistribution has nothing to do with individual freedoms unless you are talking about the freedom from work...is that even a freedom at all?

Lest we forget that we sacrifice for theWon's family vacations, too.Bahama Bound.

I could try to come up with a sentence, but it doesn’t seem worth the effort.

Our Leader, a true totalitarian
Wants us to be egalitarian
Take from the makers
And give to the takers
A concept that’s flawed, futilitarian

Tioga, I'm thinking in fact that he's a Feudalitarian, seeing all those not directly under his thumb as peasants whose earnings belong to government, whose lives are forfeit per his whim.

Frustrating and futilitarian, that’s what dentistry is. I have at least 3 teeth that have had more than one root canal. I hope you get some relief.

Oh, hope they get it fixed for you! I’ve been fortunate enough to never need a root canal -(knock on wood) so far - it sounds painful!

I was wrong about the tooth, 15 had 3 root canals and 14 just one. We now know it’s 14. I am on antibiotics. Both dentists think this tooth has cracked...the next step is removing it. OMG not THAT. Then I will need an implant. (((((shudder)))))

Sorry I didn’t get back all day. Went for a walk with a friend, stopped to visit with her husband then my tooth ached and I didn’t feel like being online. Just got back from the dentist...no magic cure, just antibiotics to try. I hope I have a painfree Easter. On duty for 24 hours, then off to spend Easter in our hometown on Sunday. We have lots of plans brunch with my little girlies and my Godson, then dinner with DH’s family. Busy, busy. I am on vacation....I want to enjoy it.

Here’s hope for an uncomplicated tooth fix-

If Obama’s minions, like the mob
Are just futilitarian slaves
Then I guess they will settle
For shallow lives and early graves

Swipe the card for government cheese
And all the koolaid they can drink-
Maybe get a scrip for medical weed
Then they won’t be able to think

Soon enough, they’ll fade away-
Put out of office or under the bus-
No doubt, someone is going down
And it will be them, not us

Being passive is likely an end in itself, and not a good one...

A+++ Love the poem, not the leftist tools. The weather was decent enough to take a nice walk today. Almost sunny, and the winds were not bad enough to blow my hair straight up. LOL
