Now that my kitchen remodel is essentially done and has been for 2 months, it’s probably time to get the impedimenta of tools and stuff out of my living room. Then again, it’s fishing season, so I’m too busy for that.

Harry Reid carries impedimenta
As he moves twenty miles left of cent-a
His obscene crony deals
Have withstood all appeals
He’s just a nasty old partisan yenta

I guess. If you believe vinegar is not a chemical. I usually just rinse stuff with water and it hasn’t killed me yet.

Washington’s dementia about socialism is their primary Impedimentia against actually improving the economy and improving people’s lives.

Assuming, of course, that Obama’s Washington actually WANTS to improve the economy and improve American life!

He doesn’t even have to go back that far. He could just read some of JP2’s stuff.

I buy a solution in a spray bottle to clean wax and “stuff” off of fruit and vegetables- it probably is just vinegar and water!

Obama & his policies are purely impedimenta to the health of our economy ... His Socialist programs with their fiscal dementia impact not only its current status, but has ramifications into generations yet to come. His appointees (i.e. cronies) in charge, besides being woefully inept, maimed legitimate investigation into questionable activities by continual obstruction & delaying tactics -- as our GDP in the meantime dips into negative (Recessionary) figures, and we see the Treasury emptied mainly due to their malfeasance.

When did James Lileks start writing for NRO? I like his column today on the impedimenta to monogamy or how Slate writes weird stuff.

Lileks has done a column for the magazine for a long time. Not so much online, but they’re probably using him to fill the Steyn void.

And quite the void it is.

Ann Coulter was right to call them girlie men a few years back.

Unless they are being clever in disassociating themselves from Steyn so he can run the kamikaze campaign he is running on this Mann lawsuit.

Such a fine line between clever and stupid.

I’m on the edge of a big thunderstorm-the temperature dropped about 10 degrees, and it just started raining with small hail mixed in...

The accumulating impedimenta
May be weighing Hillary down-
Adding an unwanted tarnish
To a much-re-polished crown

Since Obama has spat on it,
And had her tied to a tree
She can only parrot his lines
However ridiculous they may be

With Monica surfacing again
Reminding women Bill is a jerk
Even with that Clinton spin
It just may not even work...

Thank you!

Never give up or give in-there aren’t any democrats in evidence here, only fellow conservatives who lean libertarian and vote republican-the rural version of hippies and preppers, I suppose-but there are still visitors to convert-el miedo es un defecto mortal...

So the Texans drafted the Pitt QB - I never saw him play this season - did we get a good one? And by good, I mean is he able to tell the difference between our jerseys and the opponents, unlike our former QB?

He only played one season at Pitt, but was pretty competent/smart.

He had transferred from another school and had some injury previously as well. Not a typical history. So we didn’t see a lot of him.
