The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)
Practice makes perfect.....post on....
Here is my example with WFTD.
No pushing at the door please!
Not to be confused with recent WFTD inequity. The obams is all about both inequity AND iniquity.
This one’s too easy:
The Obama administration’s iniquity has been emboldened in recent years as they shed their “kinder, gentler” moniker for a more in-your-face version of socialism.
A+++ yes, this Administration is a virtual catalogue of iniquities. and you’re right, it is mindboggling how fast it has transitioned to unabashed, in your face, imposition of their will. The LGBT stuff is being mandated gov’t-wide. i sent xsbro one of my ofc emails and his response was, you need to find a new job and get out of that effing hole! i don’t think the private sector is any picnic either, as Brendan Eich can attest.
I have one cat that has to stay indoors, but the other one has to stay outside.
The first is my Inny Kitty, the other is my Outy Kitty.
The White House, is the Den of Iniquity, whereas, the Preener-in-Chief emits the Din of Inquity.
ok, that was kind of cute... ; ) A+++
I admit... it was a stretch.
Most HR busybodies are making “diversity” a mandate in their corporations. I work in the private sector and can tell you that it makes me sick how we’re supposed to celebrate everyone’s “diversity” while those of us who are here to work are sickened by the rampant displays of depravity even in our own work areas.
It used to be that someone could get fired, on the spot, for looking at pornography on the job, but now it’s something for which they’ll “coach” the offender, esp. if it was gay porn. Ugh!
your efforts are always appreciated : ) i’m just happy when i “get” them!
During this holy season, we are called to repent from our iniquity, and come to Holy Confession!
The time to come to Confession is growing short, since Lazarus Saturday and Palm Sunday are this weekend. If you haven’t been to Confession, go now!!!!
To equal Obama’s iniquity
One needn’t go back to antiquity
Against Stalin or Hitler
Little Barry is littler
But he’s everywhere, King of Ubiquity
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children.
And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.
Hopefully Samuel L Jackson will keep that in mind....when he visits the Den @1600 Penn.
Another really, really good one Truthy. Is it finally Spring up there?
Good morning. I’m writing from CA where my mother is on her deathbed, I’m sad to relate. We went to Mass at a different Catholic church yesterday. QUITE INTERESTING! I write more about that later on.
Please pray for my mom and for me, as I have a lot of details to handle and really no clue. Naturally, Mom left no instructions, but she is/was a strong-minded woman. Lack of “orders” from her has put me in a quandary as to what arrangements I should make.
Thanks. It’s supposed to be in the 50s here in northern NJ, even touching the 60s this week, so, yes, spring is here.
Yankees home opener is this afternoon. Chance of some rain. Blocks of frozen ice and snow were still visible as late as last week.
it is extremely disheartening. xshub was very attuned to the story, bc as a conservative at the head of a nonpartisan organization (made up of mostly liberals), it struck him that it is something that could potentially happen to him.
Went last week! A+++
LOVE that one, it’s perfect!
While I am of mixed mind vis-a-vis Jebs actual comments, i abhor the gotcha use of the “love” aspect for headline purposes.ot’s like the media frenzy ove Chubby’s Ft.Lee lane closures.
That is almost as bad as last week, after U.S. V. Castleman was issued, the fringe right wing blogosphere went berzerk claiming, the entire Bill of Rights had been gutted
When, the Court itself rejected Castlemans Constitutional argument (I believe they said it had not been raised previously)
But the crux of the gnashing and wailing was actually part of Castlemans argument, that was specifically rejected...
For the amount of hysteria try Googling. “Castleman Privelges Rights”
(Decision was only 36 pages...you’d think one hysteric would have tried to read it.)
yeah, no thanks Jeb. A+++
A+++ why’s he going?
oh AFTR you and your mom have my prayers, this is a very sad time. No matter how old, no matter how sick, it is very hard. She’s not in a condition to let you know anything any longer, i am guessing?
i read at noon Mass on Sundays. a few weeks ago, the church secretary, who sends out the readings and announcements to the readers during the week, included a new woman who has begun reading at the 9 am mass. Later in the day i got an email from this new woman, with hilarious antiobama cartoons and jokes. i thought to myself, hmmmm... this is strange, then i figured that clearly she did not mean to include me, that it was the auto-population of addressees that iphone does, that she prob hit the first letter and my address popped up, unbeknownst to her. So because that is SOOOOO something that would happen to me, i sent her an email saying, i don’t think you meant to include me, but i wanted to let you know that i thought those were hilarious, and i can’t stand Obama either! She was aghast at what she had done, but appreciated the note, we went back and forth some and i said that i was happy to know there were some bonafide conservatives at Holy Rosary, since being Catholic is no guarantee of being conservative, as we well know. She has a reagan.com email, so she’s actually pretty hardcore. I bring this up now, bc i just got another set of them from her, again, i think she has no idea. I think she thinks she is sending them to her mom, bc i see “dad” as one of the other addressees. obv i got in her address book, because we are both on the church emails together with the other readers.
I keep my mouth closed at the office, but it’s a very comfortable environment for liberals to spout their garbage. The conservatives among us know each other by our work. The rest just like to skate by on their presumptuous pedigrees.
Not really. “Ice” is just about the only word I can get out of her. And “open the window”. She is nonresponsive to all owther questions.
That is scary! (iphone emails going astray)
My FIL passed away about 18 mo or so ago, so i recall pretty vividly this sort of in-between life and death stage. he was comforted by prayers though, so we actually put the iphone rosary app on and put it on the pillow next to his ear.
I have a friend who constantly sends me forwards, some of them really old retreads, some highly inappropriate. I just glance and delete. She is rabidly anti-ozero and some of the mailings are just racist. There are so many earned things to hold against him, his half race is not one of them.
WHOOSH! That was the law talk soaring over my head, and I don’t care. I’m just tired of idiots who have no real experience doing anything useful being in charge.
i don’t have anyone like that, luckily. his race is totally irrelevant to his iniquity.
cliff notes version: you can’t raise an argument on appeal that hasn’t been raised below. you have to make ALL of your arguments at the very first level, you don’t get to think of new and better ones as you go along.
But that’s my MO in family discussions all the time! ROR!
Is there some other kind of ice? ;-)
LOL I doubt he is, that Quote is from Pulp Fiction, where he plays the Hitman.
It’s the last thing his victim usually hears...lol ;-)
we have our @$$Pain hat on today don’t we, soother? : )
always acceptable in family discussions, just not in appellate courts!
Plus, the blog article is a grotesque distortion of reality, for hysteria purposes....
Sometimes I wonder if some of those hysterics aren’t DNC plants.
My heart and Prayers are with you. I was just informed my Uncle (Stage 4) ordered himself out of the hospital to go home to die.....
nah, there are less than bright conservatives, we have to take credit for our own. there were freepers up in arms over the Obama/Pelosi/rosary biz last week on a thread here, and that was just not a big deal. i can’t stand the guy, think he’s one step removed from the Antichrist, but there was not a thing wrong with that. The rosaries are handed out as amenities to everyone who has an audience, it was not a special personal gift between Francis and Obams, i am sure some functionary gave it to him. And what does Obams want with a rosary, he gave it to Nancy, who is ostensibly a Catholic [heretical though she may be].
A Den of iniquity in North Korea ...
All weekend long, I had been getting asked ...”Would you mind doing....”
Response.. “not at all”
“Oh, did you want me to?”
What, watching gay porn at work? ;-)
rme. ok, take the damn hat off, i’ve had enough!
Going back to the realm of the Illmatic, there were reports of iniquity worthy of the Hellfire Club.
I can see why Dennis Rodman a simple, country boysome might say, a cockeyed optimistwould get caught up in the dirty game of world diplomacy and international intrigue.
All right. Been working long days here at the chemical plant. You have to admit that you walked right into that one. LOL
I’m sorry for you all - my husband and siblings are facing the same thing with their mother.
