Stolid - a fourth state of matter even harder than solid.

She’s flying into BWI airport, which supposedly just broke a 100 year old record for COLD. It’s 13 degs here, roads still icy and lots of snow on side streets.

There is stolid evidence that Russia’s position across the Crimean peninsula is getting more entrenched every hour.

A++ Depressing as the weather and four more years of Obama. Can’t get more stolid than that.

Though Vladimir’s actions are squalid
Obama’s reaction is stolid
“I’m thinking it through
I know what to do”
His brain, like cement, is a solid

I think it is more of a colloid
His policy just like a hemorrhoid
A gross varicosity
Full of opacity
Looking for more Ocare laws to void.

I was taught to be stolid when sizing up an adversary who doesn’t know that is not my “real” personality-it has paid off many times...

If Obama practiced being stolid
Instead of going off on a tear
Maybe he’d actually make sense,
And he’d certainly be more aware

Of all that stifled laughter
From every leader who hears
The words that point to having
A blank space between the ears

As he puts his mouth in gear
Before he engages his brain-
Every leader either laughs
Or decides that he is insane...

A+++ Obama tries that on Republicans and they cave, but on the world stage he ends up a chump. Putin does it and nails it. Kind of comical.

i just have to believe these people live in small towns/rural areas and do not get out much. there is no other explanation for some of this. kidnapping the baby bc they require that you give them the name of a pediatrician? seriously? we had to have selected a ped before giving birth, and who in their right mind wouldn’t, just for the sake of PRUDENCE??

In this case, the guy says his sister and some other relatives are nurses, so he doesn’t need a pediatrician.

Yeah.

I think a lot of it is just plain stubbornness. Like a teenager. If someone in “authority” tells them something, they automatically do the opposite.

And then there are those who don’t realize that there are lots of morons out there reproducing and if hospitals don’t make an effort to make sure people have some clue, they can be sued.

My son just called my daughter to say that he'd finally arrived in Washington from Atlanta. He's accompanying my grandson to a leadership conference in DC, although my son not allowed to attend. Not even allowed on the premises. I think this is grandson's Jr. NROTC. They work on "white hacking".

I should add that my son has a top Q Clearance because he works with nuclear materials at Savannah River. It's not like he's some thug, or something. He'll catch the train to Richmond later today and hang out all week with his sister and her family while grandson does his top secret leadership training thing in DC.
