No gelid reception from Pope Francis for this disfigured man. Christian Love in abundance. Obama's phony "I'm sorta sorry I got caught" apology is not the same thing at all.

There are a number of democrats that can expect a gelid reception from their constituents next November due issues with Obozocare.

Gee I hope it doesn't affect them adversely during the next election cycle./SARC

BTW, our parish youth group is going to Tioga Center, NY on a mission trip this spring. I think they are going to fix houses and clean up yards. They are selling soup on Sunday to raise funds to go.

I hate to sound selfish, but I could really use some help in my yard. I guess that doesn’t sound too exciting for a teen ager, however.

I’d lend a hand, but the 3000 mile drive is a little too far;-)

But hey, if they are raising funds, you should make the phone call....

Yeah, their game is going to be to get The Preezy to agree on a one year extension of the Mandate (no, not with Reggie Love) that will go beyond election day, in the hopes the sticker shock wont add negative votes to the millions losing coverage,.

The one Boner (Boehner) Obama doesn’t like should refuse to assent.

The minute the Senate and Pres ask for it, the House needs to go out and say, It’s the Law of the Land, Passed by Congress, signed by the President, Upheld by Scotus, and immediately challenge his ability to govern by Decree via Executive Order.

No time for a limerick today. On my way to see Truth’sBabyGirl’sThirdBaby. She delivered a beautiful little girl, which makes 2 girls and a boy for her, and 5 girls/4 boys for our 9 grandchildren.

I just saw an article where that assbag dan savage thinks abortion should be mandatory for the next 30 years, and I was just fuming - then saw your beautiful announcement. I’m so happy for your family!I’m smiling again

Abortion should be Mandatory.

For Registered Democrats, and Wellesley graduates.

xshub is attending the SU-Maryland football game tomorrow and will be tailgating with his message board compatriots for the first time [he graciously invited me and i just as graciously declined as i do not want to be tied up all day there]. He was assigned a dessert item to bring, and so i thought oh i will make him a few nice apple pies etc. NO. he wants storebought sugar cookies, with orange icing and the S from the SU logo, and i was in charge of procuring those. I figured rather than safeway i would call Wegmans and they needed 24 hours notice, so luckily i called at 8:30 AM and they can be done. i had to send them a pic of the logo for them to see the block style of the S and the colors. While wegmans is an upstate NY store, their VA employees are not all versed in the SU.

as a relatively new doglover, you will appreciate this. xshub always claimed to dislike dogs and tried to act like he wasn’t a fan of our’s either, but with Chan’s near death experience two weeks ago, and him staying up bawling along with me, he can no longer get away with saying that. Today he called me on the house phone at 6:30 am, bc he rang my cell twice and even though it was charging right behind me on the kitchen counter, i had it on silent and it didn’t even vibrate. he was concerned that i wasn’t answering bc something had happened to chanel.
