    Wheeeee, it's the start of Olympic Ice Dancing!!!!!! Mr. Roo Roo is wavering between homicide and suicide. We have to flip back and forth between ice dancing and two man bobsled or we might have to get a divorce. Okay,here is my expert opinion on ice dancing: there should be point subtractions for bad outfits and women's armpits with five oclock shadows. Seriously.

    There’s an old proverb (or maybe it’s just the title of a Broadway play) that reminds us of the universal truth: “You can’t take it with you.” Though they’re talking about life after death, I believe it applies to your 40s, as well. If you’re a man on the cusp of middle age, there’s a long list of things you should be leaving in the past. I’m talking about everything from scooters that would be mistaken for a child’s to wildly age-inappropriate clothing to the single worst haircut any man can have—especially someone at your dignified station in life. Now,...
  • House GOP mad that favorite whipping boy still on job at IRS

    Unhappy that their favorite whipping boy is still in charge of the IRS, House Republicans asked President Donald Trump on Wednesday to fire Commissioner John Koskinen. Fifteen Republicans on the House Ways and Means Committee sent Trump a letter asking him to can Koskinen. They said trust in the IRS has hit rock bottom and that under Koskinen, the IRS destroyed evidence when Congress was investigating the tax agency for inappropriately singling out conservative groups for extra scrutiny. “He also misled Congress in the process, intentionally degraded customer service at the agency, and has since lost the trust of the...

    Donald Trump may be spending Thanksgiving with his family in his Florida club Mar-a-Lago, but the President-elect promises he hasn't stopped work..ing. On Thursday he tweeted: 'I am working hard, even on Thanksgiving, trying to get Carrier A.C. Company to stay in the U.S. (Indiana). MAKING PROGRESS - Will know soon!' And Trump kept his energy up with a five-course meal with his family, with options including 'three-layer Trump chocolate cake' and 'Mr Trump's wedge salad'. ~snip~ The Trump team had something to announce, however: The spread available at his Mar-a-Lago resort was made available to the media. The five-course luxury...
  • REPORT: Tony Romo Arrested In North Carolina For Using Mens Bathroom

    05/18/2016 7:28:06 PM PDT · by big'ol_freeper · 35 replies
    Thursday afternoon at approximately 4:57pm ET , North Carolina Police detained a man, later to be identified as Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, for using the men’s restroom in the Charlotte-Douglas International Airport. Police say they received a complaint from numerous bystanders and patrons inside the bathroom complaining of a person who didn’t belong there. When asked how police recognized that the man who they received complaints about may have been a women, they pointed towards the Cowboys apparel Romo was wearing at the time. “It was a dead giveaway,” said officer Mike Roseman. Under the state law, Romo was...

    LOUISVILLE, KY—By a nearly unanimous vote, the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA) voted to overlook or explicitly endorse a number of additional sins in what is being perceived as an attempt to slow its rapid pace of membership decline. As balloons came down, the PC(USA) commissioners danced in the aisles to the Kool & The Gang 1980 party standard Celebrate and some attendees openly wept for joy as the denomination announced their official endorsement of pride, gossip, sorcery, covetousness, theft, and sexual immorality as a general category. “Finally,” sobbed self-described “open gossiper” attendee Rebecca Arnett. “I no longer...

    I'd like to ask an illogical question, one constructed upon the same imbedded, faulty "logic" used so frequently by Barack Obama. Question: If an ISIS jihadist, or an al-Qaeda terrorist like Osama bin Laden, reaches the pinnacle of success in their chosen career field, would Obama ever state their hard work, disciplined planning and "success" was based on them simply being "winners of life's genetic lottery"? Or, does his derisive, condescending snark only apply to Americans who have successfully built their own businesses?

    One of the most enduring symbols of the Cold War’s destructive potential is the intercontinental ballistic missile. But during the 1950s, the U.S. Force developed a strategic cruise missile known as the Snark. The Snark was highly unusual at the time. Almost forgotten today, the flying branch developed the missile as a nuclear-armed “pilotless bomber” that would herald a new era of robotic warfare.

    Ted Cruz made his first appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Wednesday and came out swinging. Cruz offered his account of the recent media blitz over an interaction he had at a rally Sunday morning in New Hampshire. After stating that “the world was on fire,” a little girl in the audience reacted with concern and asked if indeed it was. About the girl’s startled response, Cruz told the panel: “This is blown up in the media. Every reporter has written about it.” “It’s gotten worse and worse. It was first ‘Girl Startled.’ Then it became ‘Girl Terrified.’ By the...

    Snark is a popular word used for a particular sort of off-putting sarcasm. Snarkiness can manifest itself as adolescent cheap shots, snide condescension, or simple ad hominem patronizing — a sort of “I know you are, but what am I?” schoolyard name-calling. Its incessant use is typically connected with a peevishness born out of juvenile insecurity, and sometimes fed by an embarrassing envy. All politicians are snarky at times; but few obsessively so, given the wages of monotony and insecurity that the snark earns. President Obama is well known both for ad hominem dismissals of his supposed enemies — everyone...

    We must be really special to have the smartest person in the world in charge; or something. The people in charge of ObamaScare -- and of the economy in general -- are as intelligent and sophisticated as the financial experts illuminated by this video.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzJmTCYmo9g&w=640&h=390] Video link"Our" federally managed financial system resembles ObamaScare, the Obama Maladministration and the insurance companies with which President Obama et al are currently dealing. Here's a more recent analogy from the wonderful world of federally regulated high finance.

    OK, I admit it. I love snark. I love a well-crafted one, and I love to try my hand at it. Perhaps too often, I will concede. You definitely don't want to be considered "too snarky". But I can't help it. It's just too much fun. When I see a headline that is just screaming out for snark, I jump on the thread, and all too often see that another Freeper has beaten me to my snark. Did you know that the plural of snark is snark. As in "I posted 5 snark today". Honestly. While I play at snark,...

    Boosting President Obama's reelection chances Sheik Mohamed ali-Baba, principal spokesman for al Qaeda, demanded that President Obama be reelected. Sheik Mohamed ali-Baba, a well known Islamic scholar, humanitarian, redistributionist and principal spokesman for al Qaeda, today cited the reelection of President Obama as necessary for the survival of the United States under Islam. According to the Sheik, he is the only candidate who understands the beautiful truths of Islam and hence of al Qaeda. The Sheik based his assessment, in part, on President Obama's prompt recognition that the September 11, 2012 unpleasantness at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya was...

    Not everyone is kissing Tiger's ... ahem ... wood at The Masters: Just as Tiger Woods teed off at 1:42pm Eastern Time, a plane flew overhead with a banner that read, "Tiger Did You mean Bootyism?" The plane continued to circle the Master Golf tournament. This was an obvious reference to his apology and his so called return to Buddhism. So sad.

    Obviously the circumstantial evidence is rich. Too rich. So rich, Obama is already trying to figure out how to tax it. But, now that I've been linked to these trifling matters (self-linked, but who's paying attention?), I find myself unequivocally unable to avoid promoting them, for it is in my nature to be dangerous ... and to associate with known and unknown desirables.

    The Community Organizer in Chief should nominate a “Corpse-man” Czar. He’ll need one after most of the Congresscrats get killed at the polls in November. That’s why every Democrat should write these four words on their hand: I’m going to lose. Then again, it would be a lot easier for the nation if Obama just bought every Democrat in Congress a Toyota.

    The call to arms went out last week. Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), who made her name suggesting that Barack Obama and other Democrats have "anti-American" views, appeared on Fox News on Friday night and urged Americans to come to Washington to protest: "We need to pay a house call on Nancy Pelosi and tell her what she can do with the Pelosi health-care plan."... They came as directed, about 5,000 tea party regulars and anti-abortion activists, to the West Lawn of the Capitol for what Bachmann called a "Super Bowl of Freedom," sponsored by Republican members of Congress. And what...
