Good morning all. I’ll be in a seminar most of the day, but that’s no excuse for missing your homework.

obama has gone so far beyond irksome that it is both irksome and annoying that I can’t think of more and better words to describe it.

Jesse Waters is on Fx & riends right now asking simple questions of college students/graduates who haven’t a clue. Oh, how irksome he is.

It’s irksome to me, that I often incorporate the daily word into my letters to BOR but he hasn’t seen fit to publish a recent one on the air...lol.

Of course, he’s previously read three of mine, so perhaps I should open a new email account, ya think?

It is irksome to hear the word racist dropped every five minutes.

Yep. I’ve got 2 days and 2 bedrooms and a garage to do, plus a broom closet and a couple of drawers in the kitchen. But you wouldn’t believe the volume of “stuff” and the things I find.

For instance, I have the entire history of the California Presswomen from 1950 to present and NO CONTACT to turn over these scrap books. I’ve written to the National Presswomen to ask for a California contact (the last President died 2 years ago). Same for Delta Kappa Gamma (a teacher’s sorority). I know they are still in existence because she carries insurance sponsored by that group. She gets all upset when I ask her about these folks, so I don’t want to quiz her too much. If I don’t find a home for these books and papers, my husband is going to add them to the dumpster.

Speaking of the dumpster, homeless folks are sleeping there over night. There is a broken couch in there. The police cannot do anything about it because the dumpster is parked on the street.

I went down to the police esterday to identify her property that was stolen. I can’t get it back until the 2 thugs they caught are processed through the court system. Evidence.

I find it rather irksome that despite no teacher for the day, we're reminded to complete our tasks. Character is what you do when no one is looking.

That said, and with my WFTD word used in a sentence, where da wimmen at?

The machinations of the Obama Regime go far beyond irksome to those who value Freedom: his entire Weltanschauung is loathsome; the prospects for continued existence of the American Way of Life under his administration are gruesome; indeed, his agenda will consign our Beloved Republic to the flotsam and jetsam of destroyed nations.


America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!

Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

At least it was found, right? Too bad they didn’t steal the scrapbooks instead.

Congressional stalemates are irksome
The voters expect them to work some
The left won’t give in
Compomise is a sin
We need statesmen like Everett Dirksome

(Yes, I know I spelled his name wrong. Rhymes better my way.)

I cannot believe the sickness and idiocy of some. I was following a car this AM on my way in, with a license plate which read 4 OBAMA. i am not kidding you. it also had some bumper sticker praising obamacare. i cannot remember what the other one said but within the past month i saw another one similar to that. Not the same vehicle. bc one was a van and one was a car. I wanted to pull up next to them and say ARE YOU SERIOUS? you are driving around worshipping Obama with that license plate???

It is beyond irksome to deal with a husband who 3 months after the diagnosis has still not made up his mind to do anything. My elderly MIL just tells me NOW that her husband’s prostate cancer was a very aggressive one. Wouldn’t that information have been useful 3 months ago? So in summary, DH’s brother and father had very aggressive cancer and he still can’t decide IF he will do anything beyond wait for his next PSA. Fool. The stress is too much.

does his mother know about his condition? does his brother with prostate cancer stage 4 know about your hub’s condition? if not, i would make sure they did and i would have the entire fam on his back about it. what is he going to do? yell at you, not talk to you? i think you can handle that if it means he gets treated and stays alive.

Ugh! I don’t think they’d care. The police say that they get sued by the ACLU every time they rout the homeless, although they just had a big raid on a homeless shanty town around here.

I can get you the name of a fine doctor in NYC. I have a friend whose father died of the disease. He had a very high PSA level and was treated in NYC. His twin sons also tested positive — one was treated in Florida; ane is doing NOTHING in San Francisco. His daughter just had a double mastectomy (breast cancer is related to prostate cancer). This DOES run in families.

I have another friend who was operated on about 15 years ago — doing fine. So is his twin brother — also doing fine. Their sister died of breast cancer and their father died of prostate cance about 25 years ago.

I agree with this advice. The more you have yelling at him, the better.

and TELL YOUR KIDS, have them calling him yelling and bawling about it. He has shown himself to be impervious to reason, you have to go full bore with emotion now, that is the only chance. Is he going to divorce you over it? just keep thinking what is the worst case scenario— i think that would be death from lack of treatment, right?

Then there's one of Rush's favorite Democrats, Irksome Bowels, Chairman of the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, whose recommendations proved merely to be an irritant to The One and His lavish spending plans.

Last night he said he was waiting for his next PSA results. I told him we already KNOW you have cancer....I do not harp constantly, but I do harp on him. Told him the first thing I will do after he dies his painful death is to take that trip to Hawaii he never took me on. I made sure I said it would not be a celebratory trip, I will sprinkle his ashes. RME

We do have a local cancer center at Lourdes Hospital, I would have chosen the surgeon there. I felt very confident in him and his steady manner.

when’s his next PSA test? ti, i know you have potential to be as much of a b!Tch as i can be, so why are you holding back? i am here to tell you, no one could withstand the onslaught i would unleash on them on a daily basis. He’d be RUNNING to get treatment just to shut me up. that is what is needed here.
