IRS employee, Lois Lerner, now gets to be faineant and get paid for it since she was placed on Administrative Leave.
Class is in session, despite my computer glitches. Homework do, don’t be the word for the day.
What a piece of work she is. Fox was just showing letters with Lois’ signature that show the persecution of conservatives.
Beat the ping by 7 minutes!
Homework is due ....can’t blame the computer for that one.
Funny, that word -
Feign - to fake it
Ant - associated with industriousness.
Watching that too. And to think! We pay her $177k annually for the privilege of having her persecute us.
Had to restart the computer, dang thing crashed on me.
It’s French, what can you expect from them? LOL A++
Which she now gets to sit at home.
I have to give up my life of faineance today and go into work to try to “fix” my email which hasn’t downloaded anything since May 14. My email provider is ATT which is a pain in the rear. The last time I had to work with their techs on a “fix”, I was on the phone with them about 16 hours. Finally some technician in the Philipines fixed it.
161020; < French, earlier fait-nient, literally, he does nothing, pseudo-etymological alteration of Old French faignant idler, noun use of present participle of se faindre to shirk. See feign, faint
Now Lois goes home, a shrew, faineant
“Unfair,” she shrieks, “I ain’t no miscreant!”
Where does this thing stop?
Methinks at the top
Obama or similar nauseant
My car’s steering was going bad. The mechanic said it was the Faineant arm...
oh, I am betting it goes all the way up to the POSPOTUS....all those meetings with the IRS and he wasn’t steering this? I don’t think so. I bet he met more with the IRS than his national security briefers.
Oh, my. Good luck with that. Then you get to sort through the emails? Yuck.
Good morning - I am still hopeful that more heads will roll and positions lost in the IRS - no way those at the top who really orchestrated this will take the fall so they will sacrifice the underlings who did their bidding.
If a secretary can embezzle nearly $9000, what did the head honchos steal? The whole thing is a hot mess and now they will stick their noses into healthcare. At least Lois is out of that. She is a white woman like Hillary, she should realize she is expendable. Here comes the bus!
It is 68, gloomy and rain is apparently on the way...
It seems Obama is so faineant
He can’t even manage a dialog
Of why government has become
Like a wild and greedy hog
Consuming everything in sight-
And anyone who dares to say
That control is gone, will be
Put on an enemies list today
The emperor should be careful-
Tricky Dick tried that before-
Said he wasn’t a crook until
He retreated out the door
Have you ever heard of the pork chop from Perry’s steakhouse?
You confusing me with someone who recalls high school French? A++
Take a look at the low info voters knifing each other over who should have won on American Idol...
....Rush is on this subject now and I had to look. OMGosh. Scary.
Some people really, really need TVs wi8th channel lockouts on programs like that-they obviously can’t handle the stimulation...
It was pouring here until just a few minutes ago-1 1/2 in. of rain in about 45 minutes.
Honestly, I don’t think this is about pop tarts, implied unfit mothering, inadequate nutrition, etc-I think it is just an illustration of that woman’s stupidity. All kids have lifted some special food from a parent’s stash-it is a kid thing-I did it, too. And pop tarts aren’t exactly healthy food-look at the nutritional info on those things...
The idea that kids aren’t supposed to take other people’s stuff is supposed to be taught to kids by parents-not cops. I hope the dumbass mom was fined to hell and back for her misuse of emergency and law enforcement resources. If she is too (ahem) fainéant to cope with her kid being a kid, that is her problem...
Yes - our daughters rehearsal dinner was held there and several people ordered that.... it looked amazing
Now I could understand if it had been toaster strudel, but pop tarts? ;^)
Yes, very delicious, but daunting. Trying to eat something the size of your head!
We laughed about that as well - most of us got the petite steak or fish and then those plates looked like platters! If I recall it was several different cuts of pork together in the dish, is that right?
Are you still there or home?
I got home last night.
It’s cooked as one piece, but carved into pieces on a cart next to the table when they bring it out.
You have one small “eye” piece which is the most flavorful and tender, so they tell you to eat that first. Then 3 or 4 ribs. And one big hunk of pork that looks like something you’d throw in a crockpot and roast for the family. With some applesauce for the latter piece.
Memorial Day weekend. Raining, 48 degrees. I am a faineant today.
