There will be a handshake tonight. We’re just not sure who will be shaking hands with whom.

On late night, each joking farceur
Has a target with Barry, for sure
While Leno and Fallon
Used all of their talent
Letterman stays liberal pure

The farceur (Impostor) has made a farce of American Law,
Justice, economy, medicine, innovation and entrepreneurship,
but none of this is laughingly farcical because Obama
has defiantly created a real vale of PAIN for Americans ranging
from al Qaeda in their midst with weapons supplied by Holder and Clinton
to shift-changing absence of future good medical care.

They could probably win in 4 if they only play a single Ranger.

There is the matter of game 7’s to be played, of course.

Lundqvist could probably steal a game or 2.

I was talking to my friend, the black obama-voting paralegal. she is by and large conservative, a devout Christian, and we were talking about the Michael Sam thing and i said it's going to be illegal to be Christian in this country before long. She said in many ways it is now, while not illegal, definitely frowned upon. She has a 5-6 yo granddaughter. The grandbaby's mom and a friend of her's were talking about a work situation between two women, the one is charging sexual harassment claiming the supervisor "wants" her. Betty said that her daughter and the friend were on a diff floor and whispering about this situation. But Betty was driving the little girl somewhere and she said Grandma, when i grow up i'm going to marry a girl... Betty said she nearly drove off the road. Betty said, oh no, you will be friends with them, and then went into the whole man-woman marriage deal etc. She called her daughter- the child's mother-- who was horrified and said, where is she getting this??? and she spoke to her other daughter, who was equally horrified. This is the real life consequence of this situation. Little kids walking into the room to see the kiss, who are not getting any explanation from their parents, and being brainwashed at every turn that this is perfectly fine. For some reason i clicked on Patrick Burke's twitter feed last night and was reading it. He was disgusted with parents asking WHAT TO TELL MY KIDs, when they see/ask about the michael sam kiss, his retort was tell them it's two people who care about each other, You're welcome, parents. As if it was as easy as that. Christian opposition to same sex relationships is now a Scary times.

heard Barry’s name mentioned as someone the Caps are interested in, on the radio this AM. Also saw on twitter last night three names as potential interests for GM, which horrified xshub and i in the extreme: fired loser coaches from Buffalo, Vancouver and Calgary. WHY in God’s name you would want a fired loser from franchises who have not been in playoff contention etc for eons, i have no idea. The twitter comments were hysterical, xshub was nearly peeing himself reading them aloud to me “what, bozo the clown isn’t available?”

No one is happy with what they are seeing. I will always defend a star player who has to take matters into his own hands because of the way penalties aren’t called.

Yes. Wouldn’t they all complain about penalties not called? Wouldn’t they all rather play with their skills than with their goons?

It is 54, cloudy and raining off and on-it poured last night ahead of the cold front...

Jay the Carney is a farceur-
His nervous laugh and grin
At first were almost amusing
But now they are wearing thin

He gets paid to spin things,
And do what he’s been told
But lies have overcome him
And all he does now is scold

Some of the pandering media
Feel foolish to have stayed-
It shows now in the briefings-
They’re pissed at being played...

Un todoterreno es necesidad aqui...

oh, we should fear for them all....the world wants our Christian children, we need to pray for them. Look what’s happening to those Christian school girls....yes, that’s blatant action, but the powers of evil in this country are much more devious.

The former farceur, now just an a$$, Alec Baldwin gets ticketed for riding his bike the wrong way on a street in NYC. He had no ID, so he got a ride to the station....I bet he gave quite a screed for the entertainment of the cops.Couldn't happen to a bigger jerk.

The point being that if there are sentient beings, beings with free will, then they sin and are in need of a savior.

i have no problem what he said. it fit the gospel perfectly, and it was taking that same point— that the locals back then thought that baptizing Gentiles was outlandish, weird and wrong— and applying it to a comparable situation. Not lunacy.

Obama, from his seat of grandeur,
With an air of disdain and hauteur,
Toujours le farceur,
Sans doubte un poseur,
D'or tourne à inaltéré maneur.

A little macaronic.
