We’re trying a new thing. Let’s learn some Spanish. Courtesy of mikrofon’s Spanish word for the day calendar.

Today’s word is a classic false cognate.

The roberant offsite meeting was a boost to morale and to departmental camaraderie.

the First Undocumented Moslem inteviews

Ted Cruz’s cache is becoming more roborant, while Chris Christie’s is diminishing.

Right. Instead of some sort of discussion about their experience and what it portends for Obamacare, they want to declare “Gay!” and move on.

It’s pretty sad.

I read it in a woman’s voice and thought about what she was saying about their experience.

Try reading it that way.

The left was excited and jubilant
Thought Obamacare wonderfully roborant
But Biden’s “Big f**king deal”
Has lost all its appeal
Making democrats far less exuberant

OK. Now I can’t get over how forty one year old persons flake out and leave their jobs when they have bills and needs like medical insurance.

These people are too stupid to live.

Yeah, I don’t care about what kind of sex you want to have, but you generally can’t have BOTH parties in a “marriage” quit their jobs at the same time.

I thought you'd want to see the ranting and raving.
And that's why we listened to WPLJ when I was in HS. Cousin Brucie was for grammar school.

My reaction was “why was Miles income treated seperately from Steves”? If they are married, why would Miles qualify for medicaid?

And don’t they realize you have to pay back Medicaid? He may temporarily have no income (by choice) but he will have income later and he certainly has assets.

You do realize that there really is a guy named Buck Sexton who works for Glenn Beck’s TV network?
