Good morning, all. Thanks to xsmommy, who was kind enough to take my Wednesday class while I was hanging out with Mickey, Donald, Goofy, et al. I am taking her Monday class in return.

Mattie Ross: I know you can drink whiskey and snore and spit and wallow in filth and bemoan your station. The rest has been braggadocio.

Braggadocio for treason is Baraq Hussein Obama
lying to the American public claiming
"al Qaeda has been decimated"
while terror, rape, crucifixions, beheadings,
followed from Boston to Cairo, from Benghazi to Damascus,
and while treasonous DNC/Obama Weapons transfer of MANPADs, SAMs,
and sarin poison gas to al Qaeda followed while the
borders to the USA have been left wide open for Obama's "friends".

I, too, am finding Mr. O’Reilly insufferably pompous.

That was on This mornings news.

It appears Hillary!ous wants to haver her liquor back in her hotel rooms.

Simple fact is, Huma married Weiner to cover up her ties to the Brotherhood. This isnt an ultimatum, its them giving her the out.

Obama's full of braggadocchio
But shares so much more with Pinocchio:
A small boy of wood,
Never does what he should;
A known liar from Moscow to Tokyo.

A classic of the faux-Italian limerick genre.

Okay, so the last episode of BB is labeled FeLiNa, which can be an anagram of Finale or chemical symbols for blood, meth, and tears. Discuss amongst yourselves...

No idea, my kiddo sent me a text of it, asking me to post it to the class. I still don’t care for the show and am being shamed into watching it by both her and Jonah now.

Quit watching him and Hannity a couple of years back. O’Reilly never seems to have a position on anything, other than when a child is involved and Hannity is like listening to a parrot...repeat, repeat, repeat!
