My preferred ploce du jour is #SpiteHouse, #SpiteHouse, #SpiteHouse. And when people complain about Congress I point out it is Harry Reid’s senate that has historically been unable to pass a budget.

Sad about the Buccos’ loss last night.

Obama adores using ploce
For proof,you would just have to go see
Any speech, and here’s why:
“I,” “I,” “I,” “my,” “my,” “my”
With the personal pronoun, he’s cozy

I am not sure of the intention here. They are talking Homecoming spirit week.

Crazy hat day
Wear your clothes backwards day
Dress up like a thug day

I don’t think it’s necessarily meant to be a solemn memorial of St. Trayvon.

Maybe.

But its weird that schools don’t have a “falsely convicted by the libtard media” day.

We could sell Tom Delay,Zimmerman,Scooter Libby Tshirts galore!

I just watched the local news report on this story. Lots of black students. I think they were going to serious memorial.

Regardless, they have chosen to have Bucco day instead.

The unending ploce of “Affordable” RE the formal moniker of Obamacare doesn’t hide the fact that it’s hardly even a placebo in terms of actual health care or its spiraling costs…

No, I am sure the passport and FOREIGN currency in the lockbox were happenstance.

You carry those in your daily travels right?

i just texted one of my friends from work to say, hey, if they call us back to work, can you please text and let me know bc i am paying zero attention to what is going on with that. I actually dreamt the other night, that i wasn't able to find my ofc. Not working for this long feels weird. Though i have a ton of stuff that i need to do and can't imagine how i had time to work, truth be told. one bad thing is that the location of the engagement party on 11/2 is a federal landmark. xsteen's fiance has promised us there would be a colonial woman churning butter there for the party [bridesmaids reference]. But they are shut down. xsteen is starting to sweat the shutdown bc of it, and i am sure that the fiance's parents def are, as they will need to find someplace as a backup.

Why bother? The evidence is clear. This Democrat administration, moves rapidly to cover the motivation for acts of DOMESTIC terror, like Ft.Hood, and Boston, and the Navy yard and kills or captures terrorists from the previous administration, when they are in Political hot water.

Tell me I’m wrong.

I have my passport and foreign currency with me at all times. That is, a few random pesos or such in my wallet.

Sometimes I bet people 5 Renminbis that I am right.

That was my point. Even if you sincerely wanted to honor St Trayvon, it is misguided to juxtaposition him with Funky Sock day.

I don’t keep a passport, because I haven’t traveled in awhile, but I’ve always kept a few pesos-about $20 worth-and I have the same amount in Canadian bills, left over from when MrT5 and I visited relatives of his in Quebec-that was maybe 14 years ago, but I don’t get rid of perfectly good money.

If the poor woman who was killed had that stuff in a lockbox, and if she knew that she was getting close to a meltdown, maybe she planned to travel to Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Bahamas, whatever to get her head together-maybe go to a psych facility there for rest and counseling-it is usually cheaper than here, and I’ve heard that they treat clients better, too.

People do that all the time-even ordinary ones-who don’t want to cause their families a lot of fuss, or listen to a ration of crap from them. She had a good job and could probably afford a mental health vacation.

I could be way off base with this-but I do think it is a possibility...

The kids at that school don’t have much imagination, either with that Trayvon nonsense-would it be so hard to come up with a theme that is actually creative and FUN-it is a homecoming, not a drama club tribute to Greek tragedies...

I don’t see that it is, either-I was curious enough to go to some college textbooks I still have about all the political influences in the Dark and Middle Ages, and read some of the chapters on similar situations in the Church and Papacy. It wasn’t pretty at all-I truly don’t want to see any of that happen again-our Faith is so important to so many of us, and the world is in a precarious state-I don’t see this as the time for another Vat II to cause a possible schism...

I am so disquieted by the political situation and fate of our country, and this just makes me feel that my church is equally disquieting. I really think I need to talk to Father DeCelles about everything.

In the third paragraph, she makes my point.

The GAYS! and NARAL thanked the POPE.

I would respectfully submit, that disarming your enemies is the first step in winning any war.

How many times does the obvious need explaining?
