Gosnell's defense rested without a single witness. The judge keeps dropping charges and adding back. The left is really having spasms over this one. They tried ignoring it, but baby body parts flushed down the toilet was just too much for Americans.

Gotta love a woman who can take care of herself. 26 year old sailor attacked by rapist...she subdues him after disarming him and breaking his knife in two. Guess she was pissed.

Benghazi: The left’s epic fail-ery
“What difference?” is treated with raillery
Looks like Boston’s the same
Duck and dodge, shift the blame
They all should be headed towards jail-ery

The judge does not agree
And he tells them so
Oh-oh-oh

Returning to class today, but without much raillery. In case you’ve wondered where I’ve been, I’ve been recuperating from total knee replacement surgery. It still hurts, but when I look at the injuries suffered by spectators and runners in Boston puts me to shame.

Late to class because I’ve been clearing out 3 weeks of email from my computer. (Operation was April 5, and I’ve been in rehab since April 9.) I barely remember the days from April 5 through the 9.

I’m sure another Clinton run at the White House would be neither a Hirrarity nor a Hillairity.

Of course.

but they still charge you an arm and a leg for each partial knee.

So the Dog Pound will be rooting for a guy named “Barkevious”?

That seems apt.

Cloudy, looks like rain, and 64-I love days like this-they are perfect for wandering in deep thought in the deep woods...

Obama’s minions are mistaken
In their opinion of “the folks’
Our dark humor isn’t raillery,
We aren’t laughing at their jokes

We only think they are funny
Because they are clueless, too-
They never learn how to watch
For that other falling shoe

Unfortunately, there’s a problem,
As the press dishes out the dirt-
When the clueless ignore terror
People end up dead and hurt...

Thank you! They don’t have a sense of humor-they just get offended and underestimate others-that’s what makes them funny in a RMFE way...

I heard about the terrorist mom-saw her on TV, too-her voice could strip the finish off furniture-it made my teeth itch.

She’s a psycho bitch all right-either she’s lying with every whining word, or she’s Cleopatra, queen of denial-I’ll bet she had a hand in the little darlings becoming radicals, too.

There was wifi, but I was busy trying to get well and to meet all of their schedules. I finally sent my computer home. I never took it out of the case.
