The job I'm bidding right now has us replacing a dozen valves like this. it takes some serious dint to pull these suckers out, since they've been in place since 1942.

This guy was not in charge then. So, he could blame prior management and share our outrage at these mistakes. Vow to get to the bottom of things, etc.

That he doesn’t is very telling.

Obama, twice elected by dint
Of the fact that his skin has a tint
Though he loves being ruler
(There’s nobody cooler)
He’s just clueless; please give him a hint

oh his demeanor is extremely telling. Oreilly said he was a big donor and he’s obviously a partisan, so he’s not batting an eye at this.

I’m glad i’m not one of the guys who does that work. They are 125’ down in a shaft under a reservoir with air-arc cutters cutting off bolts cover with all kinds of nasty “stuff” and have to have air supplied to them by a big hose. And the leaks make it like it’s raining, so they have to have fireproof raingear, and the air is so thick with moisture and smoke, visibility is about 3 feet.

I’m too much of a wimp to do that stuff. i like my cushy office chair now.

Hill staffers, some of the more annoying people on the planet...

xsfiance works for a PAC and has contact with these types. xsteen's best friend is engaged to a guy who works in a Senate ofc. so xsteen has tangential contact with these people and it drives her insane. she can't stand this type.

xsteen always says THE HILL with exaggerated air quotes, LOL. xshub was a hill staffer back in the day, and that type was just as annoying 25 years ago.

Speaking of zerobamacare, it hasn't made a dint or a dent in covering the uninsured. It's a giant middle finger to the middle class.

Dude. Post 17.

That is some serious Man Work.

And they think they do....

Man, I used to keep a compendium of Mean Michelle pics on my about page here, and haven’t added any in probably 4 years, but I have to include that one.

She’s scary mean.

I’ve never listened to rap. Or watched an HBO series. No desire to do either.

Oh, yes I did-

By dint of just common sense
And exposure of their abuse
Anyone but a fool can see
The IRS outlived its use

Richard Nixon made use of it
And Clinton gave it a look-
So to further his ambitions,
Obama picked up that book

The IRS is too corrupted
To be any good-it has lost
Any reason for funding it-
It needs to just be tossed...

La cascada cubre una cueva.
