The imposition of ObamaCare has been nolens volens. Exemptions can be had for your loyalty to Obama and if you are a Washington lawmaker. The rest of us must endure.

The current English phrase "willy nilly" came from "will he, nil he", meaning "whether he wants to or not".

I thought he was an incoming Syracuse University basketball player, actually. But he went to Georgetown instead and was #1 pick in the NBA draft.

Barack made us commies, nolens volens
We need an approach that’s like Poland’s
May the Tea Party surge
Lead a Washington purge
Clean the socialist stench from our colons

There is a doe in my garden eating the ‘good’ plants. Why don’t they ever eat the weeds? Maybe she’s the mother of the slain fawn, paying me back.

The turkeys are out again this AM, but I don’t see any babies. I hope they didn’t drown in the deluge we had Wednesday night. We caught the edge of the Jerecho, and I’ve never seen so much water come down. There are 2 open barns on this property, but the wild animals never seem to seek shelter there (just raccoons and groundhogs that tunnel in).

What you missed was disgusting. Mueller might as well have taken the 5th, for all the info he provided to some on target questioning by Jorden, Chevetz, and Gowdy. Jorden, at least, provided the questions in advance, so Muller should have been prepared. Can you jail the Director of the FBI for contempt of Congress?

In another nolens volens reply to an inquiry, “Did you know the IRS was targeting Conservative, Christian, and Jewish groups who were applying for charity status?”, Jay Carney denied the president had any knowledge of the scandal, confirmed he was the President and the buck stops there, and then passed the buck to unnamed IRS “low-level” agents, who were to be thrown under the bus at an unnamed date. He also wrote down the name of the reporter and passed it to an aide for “further action”.

oh that's right, i remember when he announced he was going to UofKy on twitter, he was very close friends with one of the SU players and xshub was following them both on twitter. yes, he is that pathetic, that he follows HS KIDS on twitter, so he can know promptly where they are going. he actually ATTENDED the McDonalds allstar game here in DC bc one of the SU recruits was playing in it, and he SPOKE TO THE KIDS PARENTS. yes, he's THAT GUY as my kids would say.

It is misting off and on, and a chance of heavier rain-I will not complain about rained-out work, mud or any such-we need the rain...

A most unwelcome consequence
Of Obamascare has come to pass-
The bill never read is here
To bite its pushers in the ass

Nolens volens, congressrats will
Be dragged along just the same-
They said we peons must buy it,
So, now let them play the game

Let the law Obama’s minions loved
Be followed right to the letter-
It’s time they realize they are
Just like us folks-not any better...
