Good Morning my pretties! Class is in session, perquisites are demanded or your grade might suffer. Alls fair in grading homework! See you in class.
One of my pet peeves is people who abbreviate “Perquisite” as “Perk”.
Apparently a Perquisite of serving in Congress is not being forced to abide by same laws as the rest of us (Obamacare) despite all measures taken to avoid such a situation (Grassley’s Amendment).
Obama HIMSELF pushed for this....those that rule are cool, the rest of us pay through the nose. A++
A++ Like you did for your homework? LMAO
Here is an unwelcome perquisite http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3052755/posts of serving in Obama’s CIA that has come to light in the last week.
"Now look at us, the way we do it
Printin' money, makin' laws for you on the dumb tv
That ain't workin', that's the way we do it
Perquisites 'n brothels for nothing, and ObamaCARE for free."
A++ Nice recovery.
America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!
DC is a sinkhole for liberals and their foibles. A+++
We need to poison that trough so they quit all this garbage. They are NOT the ruling elite. A++
I never knew that word... I will intentionally use it (instead of “perk”) from now on.
"Because it might ruin the fabric. We'll use a different chemical. Do you know which one?"
"Perc, is it?" (perchloroethane)
LOL, drycleaners have a perquisite or two up their sleeves.
Our lib leaders grasp every perquisite
The template: The Number One jerk is it
Fly your pals on vacation
Sheeple love exploitation
Corruption’s the left-wing’s pre-requisite
A+++ Even the left has it’s limits, seems wiener’s dog won’t hunt this time around. A glimmer of hope.
According to The Atkinsonville Daily Wind and Journal someone broke into the FeelRite Pharmacy and stolt all the Perquisite pills. The owner felt so bad about it he had to spend a month in the Bahamas relaxing.
So I guess you’re right, perquisite is like a side benefit.
Vi-co-din dey catch the perp?
Ah, true, True.
But is not a disdain for the real world and the people who earn their own livings both a prerequisite AND a perquisite for all democrat politicians?
And all too many republican politicians....
I recall when I was just beginning my career, the use of “Life/Health/Dental insurances were perquisite to a good job. If they weren’t offered, you didn’t even talk with them. Now it’s dangling in the air.
A++ That’s because of Obama and his ilk. Why work for benefits, the dem party had made it’s fortunes on freebies.
Good morning ti. One of the perquisites of jogging the park in the morning is to see the deer out and about. Also one of my favorite dogs who stops his owner until he gets a pat from me.
Here is a program loaded with perquisites — puppy petter: http://www.washingtonpost.com/posttv/video/thefold/the-unlikely-ptsd-therapy-puppies/2013/08/08/8d5ed20a-006b-11e3-9a3e-916de805f65d_video.html?tid=ts_carousel
Heres one for you, What goes on when you are not there: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AihvuZiDhsg
I know some people at the office who think that free coffee is a prerequisite perk of the company
Our local constabulary sent a man to the Bahamas to question the owner. A month later he came back and said it must have some flat-lander what stolt the goods.
Whoever makes the best pizza deserves a prequisite:
Living in NYC, I’m spoiled — but shocked at the lower rating here.
Most people dont want flappy pizza. I like a good crust that is doughy and givea a good reheat out of the freezer.
Chicago is good but its not finger food.
The answer is neither thick nor thin, but that happy medium.
The wife and i had date night last night and saw “the Conjuring”.
It was really good and suspenseful. I actually let out an utterance at one point, which had never happened before.
Good haunted house/possession story. Based on true events.
Thats the scariest kind.
Ok, serious question here. If it is the law (and a good idea for safety) to have your headlights on when it is raining and i have “automatic” headlights, why don’t they turn on when i turn my wipers on?
No work today, damnit...
Obama wanted this nice job
For the perquisites included-
He thought it was a cakewalk
But then cold reality intruded
He found out that playing golf
And always going on vacation
Isn’t the performance expected
By one who is CEO of the nation
Now he’s off to Martha’s Vineyard
To golf and party some more
As the scandals and other trash
Are piling up at his office door...
Midget girl has a new game she is playing with Titus-sneaking to the window he is sitting in, swatting him then running across the kitchen to watch his reaction. As soon as he settles, she does it again, and keeps up until he chases her down and knocks her to the floor, holding her there, licking her face till she howls like some little victim and he lets go and walks away.
While she waited for him to settle again, Yeti boy ambled over and tried to get his big paws around her for a tackle, but she spat at him and took off-at least she has sense enough not to goad someone that big into a wrestling match. He plays with Titus, who is 13 pounds and likes rough play-he probably shouldn’t play with Midget girl-he is just too much bigger...
I agree - we got pizza yesterday from a place that reminds me the most of pizza we got in Pennsylvania, but the crust is just a bit too soft - I have to heat it in the oven to be able to pick it up!
You want enough dough on the edge to make a nice handle. One that you can crack open and scoop out the soft doughy goodness from if you want.
If a big bubble develops in this outer edge, even better.
When i make homemade pizza i like to use frozen bread dough as the crust.
LOL Can’t stand coffee, wouldn’t do it for me. A++
Pizza, pizza, pizza...A++
My daughter and her boyfriend recommended the movie.
LOL, good idea. It’s the law here in NY state to have your headlights on when you have your wipers on. Lots of idiots ignore it. Cops are more interested in anyone with a phone than no lights.
A+++ I had to leave Buffy most of the day....NO accidents. That’s a first.
Ok, where's the thermos...
It’s in the book closet on the top shelf where it always has been. Just remember, you empty it you refill it.
Glad to hear there were no messes-for weeks when Husky girl was a puppy, I closed my eyes when I came in from work, expecting either a mess on the floor, or a throw pillow relieved of its stuffing. That stage didn’t last long, fortunately...
Tim Conway, wasn't it?
I don’t make a point in getting out of the way of someone without their lights on in the rain but if I see someone obviously talking on the phone, hands-free or not-I slow down to let them get way ahead of me-rain and lights don’t interfere with attention quite like listening and responding to a remote conversation...
And no, I don’t talk on the phone and drive-my phone stays in the case, in my purse until I arrive at a destination...
Exactly. And try to pull onto a busy road in the rain and you see why its the law.
My point is that the cars could be wired/ programmed to do this.
My headlights turn on when the engine starts.
