The meme of the democrat party culture is that republicans are uncaring, cold-hearted maladroits who care not for mankind.

I thought that was the meme of the media.

Oh, wait...they’re the same.

You’re right. The Democrats have erected Orwell’s “prolefeed” system to manipulate the minds of the L-I-Voter.

Next time you're in a waiting room somewhere you might pick out a few of the postage-paid subscription cards from the pile of Time magazines.

Write cancel across the cards and drop them in the mail.

Not quite the same as actually canceling but it works for me me me.

That will keep me occupied, as Obamacare will cause the waiting times for doctors to increase exponentially.

That explains the cogent response and lack of stream-of-consciousness tangents for which you have become famous.

By the way, I find that bourbon makes my corn flakes soggy. (No, that's not a euphemism.)

Us corn flakes (failure is not an option..it’s a way of life) is made soggy too. I heard about a new drug taking hold among the corn flakes...crack...crack corn!

Drink the Bourbon,neat.

Eat the corn flakes, out of the box.

The Bourbon starts to hit first,then the cornflakes absorb some, and act like a time release.

Why is “Politics and the English Language” not required reading, in Middle School.

I love that essay by Orwell, and had a section from it in my first book!

The liberals have studied him well.

So many urban jungle dwellers
Have been gulping koolaid down
That they aren’t able to be
Off their turf or out of town

Since they absorbed the meme
Of government love and care
And on welfare these 40 years-
Without a thought to spare

For how they will eat and live
With no real skills to sell-
And no more bread and circuses-
Just their own self-made hell

The meme about Pittsburgh and losing baseball was crushed last night.

Crushed like a Martin home run.

Now i can say i hate the one game wild card playoff without it sounding like sour grapes.

We finished ahead of the Reds. We beat them three times last weekend. Why did we have to play them again?

Americans have gotten used to being highly-paid, which was because we were highly productive. The lefties still want the former although they are no longer the latter.

Stopped at tgiFridays with xsbaby after picking her up after her class finished at noon. i LUV the pecan crusted chicken salad. She is dieting and ordered the grilled salmon and shrimp. Took about 20 min before we got served and then they brought steak and shrimp instead of the salmon so they took that back and tried again. The chicken in my salad was clearly at least a day old and dried out beyond belief, not remotely edible. 40 min after we were seated xsbaby had no food. The guy that brought her the wrong thing came to the table and i said, i need to see a mgr, bc something needs to be FREE here! he said he was the mgr. He literally seemed intellectually challenged, so there is clue #1 as to why this branch is a total DUMP! i went off about the chicken being dry, he offered to bring another salad and i declined saying i had no guarantee that the chicken would be any fresher! 50 min after entering xsbaby was able to eat her meal, which she said was good. The bill was $12.39. they charged for my salad and iced tea and then discounted it 20%, and charged zero for her food. soooo disappointing! i LOVE that salad, and it was horrible.

xsbaby is a youtube and internet FREAK, totally up on all this stuff. She taught us about MEMEs a few years back. Just to annoy her xsteen and i would consistently mispronounce it, most commonly as Mem-MAY... drove her nuts.

Thank you! Then I guess they will freeze in the dark when it all comes down-many of us have been planning for these times for a few years-I’m one of them-and it is still hard as hell for us to begin going galt. The spoiled, clueless dilettantes who have no economic or practical survival skills may be like queen bees in their urban hives-waiting for some workers to come and feed them...
