The viperine nonsense spilling from the mouths of Jay Carney, Harry Reid and the usual suspects about Benghazi would be laughable if the subject were not so serious.

The ‘video did it’ to coverup the Benghazi atrocity
was viperine -— a vapor viperine video.

The kids of the town were all terrified of old Farmer Hately. With his vicious stare and viperine tongue, he was mean as an acre of snakes.

I just made it up. :-) But, the “mean as an acre of snakes” phrase is something I recently heard “Chester” say on an old-time radio episode of Gunsmoke (from the mid-1950s).

the viperine vixen is attempting to extort the racist. Not very bright considering she appears to have illegally taped the original conversation.

Here’s a good one. This woman calls the police yesterday cause her 4 YO daughter is missing. They do a big neighborhood manhunt.

Then they find the girl at preschool.

Where the mother had taken her earlier.

Yes, drugs were involved.

my heart breaks for the children of drug-addicted losers. there was some viral video of a young girl on the bus with her mother who was “nodding” in some heroin stupor, and she kept trying to wake her mom up. just makes you want to bawl.

My heater is on now. It rained pretty hard this morning, but waited until after I got in to work.

84 tomorrow, they say. My brother-in-law is coming over this evening to help me remove our old living room A/C and put in a new one. The old one is squealing like a banshee. Fan bearings.

I’ll put it out by the curb and it will disappear. Probably before we have the new one assembled and in.

She has never been pretty, even when young, but she looks horrible now. The one old broad with the long stringy grey hair looks bad too, yet they are the fashionable people! lol Contrast those two to the lady in the orange just barely showing in the right side of the photo - her hair is nice, dress looks good and covers enough - THAT is good fashion

If you leave it out with a note that says Free it will be gone by tomorrow. If you leave it out with a note that says For Sale, it will be gone by nightfall. With all the landscape crews that come through our neighborhood, if I put something out too big for trash or for me to haul to Goodwill, with a Free to a Good Home sign, it is always gone by the end of the day.

No sign needed. If it’s on that side of my hedges, it’s fair game. I’ve gotten rid of other non-functioning A/C’s that way. My old gas grill. I even had someone take my wife’s old broken food processor earlier this year.

It broke while making cheesecake. We didn’t clean the bowl out.

When someone took it the next day, I commented to the wife that I was pretty sure a raccoon or something was licking it before it was taken.

Ew.

as someone on the FR thread on this commented, if this passes for fashion, no wonder Moochelle is considered a fashion plate.

we live on a culdesac, there is de minimus traffic and we could never get rid of anything that way. we have to wait for AmVets, Purple Heart or National Children’s Center to call and they schedule pickups. we always have something for them when they call or we can certainly dig something up for them.

Anything we put at the curb gets hauled off same day too...a neighbor is moving and has put out several things that were gone within hours. We put out some lawn equipment and one of the lawn crews hauled it off quickly!

That is a good point.... apparently being thin to the point of looking ill counts as fashionable, or being rich because normally a big rear end would NOT be lauded as fashionable

she looks perfectly fine in the lavender dress 10 years ago, that is a DRASTIC decline it seems to me. i don’t look THAT much different than 10 years ago. more wrinkles etc. but not CRYPT-KEEPER like!

Pardon for butting in, but it appears the botox in her face and collagen in her lips have taken their toll-her face looks like one of the perch that swim around in a little pool on the river I pass by when hiking.

I’m older than she is by several years, totally au naturel, and I’m even thin-but I don’t look like that flamed-out Halloween jockey-If that is what “enhancements” and all that do, I’m glad I don’t believe in any of that...

You are naturally thin T, I think many of the ultra rich starve themselves beyond anything natural.

But you are right, she has had stuff done to her face and it does not look good

That broad is more than just scary looking-she’s had too many cosmetic procedures on her face-the effects do wear off, and each one makes you look more like the product of mummification-just look at that mask Nancy Pelosi has for a face...

I’d probably go through the stuff in front of your house-nobody throws away stuff that can be re-used out here, and I’m pretty handy at fixing free stuff-just call me an opportunist...

Well the lawn stuff was actually still good - but we had replaced it with some things that worked better and I didn’t want it just sitting in the garage. One of those illegals doing lawns will fix it up and either use it or sell it so I consider it a donation to someone
