Rally O' Geniuses Captured On Video


The last guy sums it all up for the liberals.

Totally objective jourrrnalists at NPR & Newsweek

NPR's Nina Totenberg said Friday that she's very afraid of the upcoming elections.

Newsweek's Evan Thomas, her co-panelist on "Inside Washington," said historians might look upon November 2, 2010 "as kind of a joke...obviously the political system’s a mess" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

GORDON PETERSON: Nina, columnist Paul Krugman says if the election goes as expected, his advice is be afraid, be very afraid. Should we take his advice?


NINA TOTENBERG, NPR: I am already afraid, very afraid. I mean, it’s not like governance has been going great. I think we’ll, I don't know whether I should be afraid, but there will be gridlock.

Really, Nina?  Afraid of gridlock?  Speaking for myself, I can only pray for gridlock as a bunch of incompetent jackasses try to write 2,000 page laws that affect my life when they should be leaving me the hell alone.

PETERSON: Evan, Krugman also says that future historians will probably look back at the 2010 election as a catastrophe for America. You are a historian. You agree with that?



EVAN THOMAS, NEWSWEEK: No, but they might look on it as kind of a joke. More at Newsbusters:

Really, Evan?  A joke?  As opposed to electing a garage band called Obama and the Democratics?  Yes, it's a real joke.  Speaking of jokes, why don't you see how much trial lawyers are costing the poor in this country with the Democratics fighting tort reform etc.  I'm certain you'll get a huge laugh out of that one too.

Of course ... OF COURSE!!




Found it at Bits and Pieces:

The media's excited -- big leftist party on the national mall

Hey ... I'm pretty sure someone photo-shopped this to make Code Pink look even worse than it is.  What a dirty trick.  Oh well, you'll get the idea.

Journalists are practically giddy in anticipation of this weekend's Jon Stewart rally on the National Mall. The Rally's staff has recieved more than 1,000 requests for press credentials for the event. Only 400 were given out.Those statistics underscore just how much the media loves Stewart's leftist message (and it is a leftist message).

For some perspective, consider that the September 12, 2010 Tea Party on the Mall received roughly 150 requests for press credentials, according to FreedomWorks, which sponsored the event.

Glenn Beck's "Restoring Honor" rally granted 450 such credentials to journalists, but in the brief contact NewsBusters had with Beck's staff there was no indication that any reporter who had requested credentials had been turned down.

More at Newsbusters:

Right, there is no bias in the media, they report fairly and objectively on all things ... baaaaa, bleat.

By the way, do you think Code Pink will be there?   I'll give you the answer ... yes, they'll be there.  Code Pink is a communist group of total idiots.  If the media interviewed them they'd come off as total idiots.

Now, let me as you this ... Do you think the media will associate Code Pink with Jon Stewart/Democrats?  Do you think the media will even allow a Code Pink protester to be shown?  Answer: No.

When the idiots show up at conservative rallies does the media try to associate the Republicans with the idiots?  Answer: Yes.  Do they show the idiot's signs at every opportunity?  Answer: Yes.

Do the idiot leftists/Democrats think the media is fair and objective?  I'll answer by quoting a standard leftist commenter at the J-Walk blog.  Please keep in mind this lady is completely serious ... she actually believes this so don't laugh in her face ... it would be cruel.
What I meant was that his (Stewart's) comedy is neither left nor right. He gets his digs in on both sides. It is just that the right presents far more parody opportunities than the left. At this time. All that rich material cannot be ignored.
The thing is, she's mostly right. He does get his digs in on left and right ... it's just that it leans ... is mostly ... is 90% right ... you know ... due to the righties being so stupid. 

Here's a little taste of how the  lamestream media will "portray" the commie get-together.
Good Morning America's Claire Shipman on Friday used no liberal labels in a friendly piece to promote Jon Stewart's rally in Washington, Saturday. Yet, on August 28, she warned viewers about the "right-wing" Glenn Beck and his protest in the nation's capital. More here:

Changing The Rules

The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals yesterday threw out part of an Arizona law requiring proof of citizenship to register to vote, but left standing a portion requiring registered voters to present proof of identification to cast a ballot.
A split three-judge panel ruled that the voter-registration portion of Proposition 200, which was approved by voters in 2004, was void as inconsistent with the National Voter Registration Act, otherwise known as the “Motor Voter’ law. However, the panel unanimously held that the identification requirement did not violate the U.S. Constitution or the Voting Rights Act.


Sitting by designation, retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor wrote for the majority that the NVRA’s comprehensive national system for registering federal voters superseded the Arizona law’s conflicting voter registration requirement given “the paramount authority delegated to Congress by the Elections Clause.”


"Sitting by designation"?? - If you can't handle the highest Court in the land, you go to a lower court that hears more cases? Shame on Sandra O'Connor for not just retiring and shutting up. It would be like Terry Bradshaw showing up on a high school's field - "Hey - I wanta play some more".

There Are Myriad Other Ways

A nationwide shortage of several anesthesia drugs has left Kentucky and several other states scrambling to find enough doses to carry out lethal injections — potentially delaying executions well into next year.
Kentucky announced this week that it would not be able to carry out two executions, despite pending death warrants, because the state only has enough sodium thiopental, also known as Pentothal, to perform a single lethal injection.
“We have reached out to some other states, but that has not been fruitful,” said J. Michael Brown, secretary of the Justice and Public Safety Cabinet. “We’ve had other states call us trying to find it.”

And a shortage of Teddy Bears and Snuggies has further delayed the executions.

Stupid libtard trying to go easy on murderers


WASHINGTON — Justice Elena Kagan cast her first vote on the Supreme Court late Tuesday, joining the liberals in dissent when the high court cleared the way for the execution of an Arizona murderer.

More here:

Right.  Another 5-4 vote where the liberals on the court tried to let a murderer get away with it.  I don't get it with the libs.  They're against the death penalty for violent rapists, robbers, and murderers ... why?

You have to wonder.  There are nine "justices."  And it seems like every vote is 5-4.  Are these issues really THAT hard?  Is it THAT difficult to tell right from wrong?  Do the same justices disagree on EVERY issue?  Is justice REALLY being done?  I submit to you that it isn't.

Ladder Accident

Okay. It's a commercial but it's very funny.

I shall try some tea now, please.

Another mystery solved with idiotic reasoning.

(Newser) – Despite earning $2 million a year from Vanity Fair, celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz is in dire financial straits—how can this be? John Gapper explains in the Financial Times: No one is collecting her work.

Despite shooting such iconic pictures as a naked and pregnant Demi Moore, or the also-naked John Lennon with Yoko Ono, Leibovitz’s work simply hasn’t gained a following among people with expensive tastes. Some don’t admire her style; some cite a lack of focus; others say she hasn’t played “by the art market rules.”

High-profile fashion and society photographers sold some of their works for as much as $3 million, but at auctions this year, most of Leibovitz’s prints have sold for single-figure thousands, or even just hundreds, of dollars.

One expert explains that in order to find success, artists must work closely with auction houses and galleries—and Leibovitz hasn’t. “She suffered from not caring about it, not paying enough attention,” says one gallery owner; another adds, “We dropped her because it would take six months just to get a print signed.” Click here for more on how she got underwater.

Really? It's that nobody is collecting her work? That's the explanation? REALLY? So what you're saying here is that it's completely understandable that it's someone else's fault (okay- everyone else's fault) that you're broke even though you're earning $2mm a year.

What they're attempting to tell us here is that the only answer to having more discretionary income is to make more money and NOT to spend less of what you already earn. I'm not being naive here, I get it that $2mm doesn't buy what it used to buy but that doesn't explain going broke on $2mm a year. The only thing that explains that is overspending. Allow me to gleefully misinterpret Occam's Razor by saying, "All things being equal, the simplest explanation is usually the correct one."

Not that this commentary is needed but she's clearly a Lib. Here's a short list of the reasons.
1. She's got long, unstyled, gray hair.
2. She's an artist.
3. She can't manage a substantial income without going broke.
4. She would rather go broke than "sell out to the man".

Well, at least she still has her self-respect dignity integrity instamatic.

From Newser with the headline "The Real Reason Annie Lebovitz is Broke".

Wait a minute- fanatical ideologists LIE???

Green-themed false advertising is everywhere: More than 95% of consumer products on the market make some sort of unproven claim or outright lie about environmental benefits, a new study shows. In fact, about 12,000 examples of so-called greenwashing (unsubstantiated claims of being "all-natural" or free of BPA chemicals, for instance) were found in only 5,000 products examined. The most common example of outright lies came on Energy Star labels for appliances, reports the Wall Street Journal.

From Newser.

Green Party was all set to win the election but ... Gaaaaaaa


Bold is mine:

It's the typo to end all typos: Illinois gubernatorial candidate Rich Whitney's name is misspelled as "Rich Whitey" on some electronic-voting machines in Chicago, and officials say the problem can't be fixed before election day.

The Chicago Sun-Times, which broke the story, notes that half of the flawed machines are in predominantly African-American areas of the city. The problem is present in 23 of Chicago's 50 wards.

"I don't want to be identified as 'Whitey.' If this is happening in primarily African-American wards, that's an even bigger concern," Whitney, the Green party candidate, told the Sun-Times.

More here:

LMAO - the Green Party candidate ... RICH WHITEY!!  From now on, when speaking of Whitey and the Oppressors, ensure you mention that Whitey's first name is "Rich."

People need to learn how to use slingshots.

Yes It's Sophomoric, But It Made Me Laugh

Tuesday Taste of the "Town"


DUFFY STREET SEAFOOD SHACK
CHERRY GROVE BEACH, SC


FIRST IMPRESSIONS:
It’s a large beach house looking building a few blocks from the ocean. We decided to dine al fresco on the front porch. The complimentary peanuts were pretty unappetizing, and we were afforded a lovely view of the True Value super-hardware store across the street. We never ventured inside – it looked dark.

SERVICE:
Our server quite possibly was hard of hearing. Several times she’d ask if we needed anything, and then turn and leave, ignoring our requests.



CHEESEBURGER & FRIES:
The burger was horribly overcooked, dry and charred. It was served with so much lettuce as to be funny. The fries were actually pretty good, thick and cooked properly. The ketchup situation was a big problem – the Klown requires a lot – and bringing it to the table in one ounce paper ramekins was inadequate to say the least. I guess they don’t believe in “bottles” of the red stuff. F. Utter failure.


OTHER FOOD:
I had “the” crab cake sandwich. Honestly, I’ve eaten very many - I love a good crab cake, I really do. This one was probably the worst I’ve ever tried to eat. Overcooked, dry, all filler, no discernable crab meat, with no flavor at all. I ate about half of it. The hushpuppies were excellent, though, even without honey butter. Tartar / remoulade sauce was also flavor-free.

OVERALL EXPERIENCE:
Forgettable, and very expensive. I had 2 bottled beers, EK had an iced tea, and the tab was $28 + tip. I shall not return.

WTF? EVENT:
Who chose this place to begin with??

Unsuspecting morons tricked by subtle test questions?

So I was taking an online assessment the other day and it was so ridiculous that I thought I'd share some of it with you. These "tests" are all the rage in employment screening these days. Seriously, I wonder if they really help. I mean, how damn stupid do you have to be to get these questions wrong? You're telling me that an interviewer wouldn't be able to identify the moron who would screw this up?

Ok, we'll assume that this ability is beyond the capability of a "manager" and we'll go ahead and give it a perusal.  You're   supposed to check the box that applies.  Possible answers are:
HE - Highly effective
EF - Effective
N -- Niether effective or ineffective
IN - Ineffective
HI - Highly ineffective

LMAO - "Take extra change from the penny dish" -- yeah, that sounds like an awesome solution.  Hey honey, problem solved, I snagged 9 cents from the change dish this morning.  That idiot boss of mine is none the wiser.

"Hide a product outside the door to sell later" -- wow, that sounds really illegal.  I prolly won't get the job if I check that box.  I better pick another solution.  I like the "... keep it just this one time" option.


Well, these are what they are but one of them struck me particularly funny ... "Take surplus cash from the cash drawer ..."

"What?  What's the problem?  I only took the SURPLUS cash ... geez."

Yeah, I"m going to need one of these

At last, someone who cares about us scam victims!!


I got this email this morning.

ATTENTION,

SCAM VICTIMS REIMBURSEMENTS PROGRAMME.

I write to bring to your notice as a delegate from the Nigerian Government Reimbursement Committe under the strict supervision of the United Nations to pay 230 Nigerian 419 scam victims the sum of $150,000 USD (One Hundred and Fifty Thounsand Dollars) each. You are however listed as one of the beneficiaries for these payments.You are expected to get back to us for your immediate reimbursement.

We shall feed you with further modalities as soon as we get your response so send a copy of your response to svrpp_04@yahoo.com.hk

Yours Faithfully,
Mrs. Ewere Itah
PUBLIC RELATIONS OFFICER

Yes, it's from Nigeria sooooo, THAT'S PROBABLY LEGIT. 
Mmmmmm, "further modalities."

I mean -- LMAO @ scammers who don't even have the sense not to associate Nigeria with their scams.  How long has the scam been going on?  10 years?  15 years?  It seems to me that anyone on the planet who hears the word "Nigeria" IMMEDIATELY thinks "SCAM!!"  Am I wrong?  I must be wrong if people are willing to invest time using this template.

I'll bet I get at least one or two of these kinds of emails per day on my hotmail account.

I think the rest of us should step up our game too.

Think about it- if more of us were this thoughtful and helpful, the world would be a better place.

Probably.




From Quipsologies

Firms who received bailout cash giving generously to the politicians who bailed them out in the first place.

What's extry funny about this is that it's the Libs who keep whining about "Republicans and their corporate buddies". I mean, I just love it how Libs methodically bash corporations, capitalism and profits but never acknowledge that the money they love to spend doesn't come from any place else. Furthermore, they never ever give the cold shoulder to donation dollars- no matter what the source. Those of us reading this know fully well that Liberals are hypocrites but why is it that they think they're getting away with anything?

As P.J. O'Rourke recently said, “This is not an election on November 2. This is a restraining order.”

By Dave Sheinin
Washington Post Staff Writer

It was Game 6 of the National League Championship Series, a game the Philadelphia Phillies were built to win, but one the San Francisco Giants were resolved not to lose. And now, it was beginning to come together for the visitors, the stadium filling with nervous silence - a cheap, tiebreaking homer to right, a fluky double-play to end the eighth. Yeah, because this kind of thing NEVER happens in the regular season, right Dave?

And then, all of a sudden - strike three! - it was over, the Giants converging elatedly around their black-bearded closer, Brian Wilson, near the mound. The final out of a taut, 3-2 victory was secured - a borderline-call strikeout of Phillies slugger Ryan Howard - and the Giants, improbably, were headed to the World Series.  Improbably, Dave?  For what it's worth, you're probably right but, then again, I'd probably be right if I called you an asshat ... but I wouldn't do that, Dave ... you know why? Because it's not necessary, Dave.  It's not necessary to give my lame-assed opinion in a fact based story ... it comes of as sour grapes, Dave ... capsice?  I doubt it.

More here:

I tuned in about the bottom of the first inning (I think) and the Phillies were hitting at will. It just seemed ridiculous to me. I had watched about 8-10 pitches and thought, "they gotta get this guy off the mound." After a few minutes, I couldn't watch anymore. I figured it would be a 20-nothing blowout or something so I tuned out.  Sometimes it seems like they're going to get creamed just because I'm watching.

I tune back for a few minutes a little while later, just in time to see the bench-clearing fiasco and couldn't stand to watch any longer. When I woke up and checked the news I couldn't believe my eyes. THE GIANTS ARE IN THE WORLD SERIES!!!

Yes, Sir! Ma'am! Uh... Senator!

Something tells me that it's not that she worked so hard for the title. The same thing is true of PhD's insisting that you call them "doctor". It's not that they worked so hard for that title either. It's that by insisting that you use the title they're forcing you to remind yourself, them, and anyone listening that they're vastly superior to the rest of us and they won't soon let you forget it.

Now, you might be saying to yourself that a title doesn't really mean a whole lot. You might even know a lot of people with just such titles and wonder just exactly how they managed to wrangle such an appelative.

I can only speak from personal experience but what I have noticed is that the people most likely to insist that you use a title of respect are the least likely to be deserving of that title or of respect. Either way, I present a mockery of Barbara Boxer.

Bacon.

Something occurred to me while reading this article at the Daily Mail (mentioned by Rush Limbaugh). It seems that a cafe owner was forced to shut down an extractor fan because the smell of bacon was offending local Muslims. This story made me realize something interesting.

I have noticed that recently, there has been a surge in the popularity of bacon. I'm not talking about people agreeing it's delicious, I'm talking about it attaining cult status. It occurred to me while reading the article mentioned above that bacon's new popularity might be due- at least in part- for an invasive feeling of animosity toward Muslims.

Let's face it- it's politically incorrect to overtly despise Muslims yet when there seem to be so many of them overtly trying to kill us, it's hard not to feel at least a little disdain for them (or at least for their actions). Add the idea of their trying to impose Sharia law in places where they're newcomers and it only makes matters worse.

Somehow, the Liberals have convinced us that it's unamerican to be proud to be American. I don't fall for it and it's clear that I have brothers and sisters out there who feel the same.

What better way then is there to quietly protest being oppressed and overrun and to show true American pride than to love something they hate? I present to you bacon paraphernalia:

Tuesday Taste of the "Town"


TONY’S PIZZA
CALABASH, NC

FIRST IMPRESSIONS
It appears to be an old house that’s been remodeled into a restaurant. Kind of old-timey, very clean, and the music is from the 50’s and 60’s. It smells like great pizza.

SERVICE
Superlative. We had a great server, C*****. She was smart, attentive, and pretty cute, too. She even helped with the photography, as did Mrs. Klown.





PIZZA
We ordered a large with pepperoni and mushrooms. It arrived very hot, and had all of the ingredients as ordered , but alas, the mushrooms were canned (see WTF? from last week). Slightly crispy crust, not too much sauce, and stringy, melty cheese. I call excellent. A.


OVERALL EXPERIENCE
Thoroughly enjoyable – nice quiet atmosphere, and very energetic staff. I will definitely go back, either for takeout or dining in. There was even discussion with our server about their burgers – could be our first double up restaurant.

WTF? EVENT
There really wasn’t anything out of the ordinary to report. EK told our server how his last pizza from there was purchased about 25 years ago, and it was so unacceptable this was his first return visit. She was probably 3 years old then. Oh, and the owner told me what “Opa!” means.

Sick pedophiles in our midst


Bold is mine:

TV watchdog group the Parents Television Council is stirring things up this morning with its outrage over the racy photo shoot of the stars from Fox's Glee in the upcoming issue of GQ, which it called a "near-pornographic display." "It is disturbing that GQ, which is explicitly written for adult men, is sexualizing the actresses who play high school-aged characters on Glee in this way. It borders on pedophilia,” said PTC President Tim Winter.

UPDATE: GQ released a statement defending the shoot: “The Parents Television Council must not be watching much TV these days and should learn to divide reality from fantasy. As often happens in Hollywood, these ‘kids’ are in their twenties. Cory Montieth's almost 30! I think they're old enough to do what they want.”

More here:

Right ... because if you are attracted to well-filled-out high school girls then you're a sick, SICK pervert.  Got that?  Keep voting for idiot libs.  They'll give other idiot libs jobs like "PTC President."

The Klown's congressman brings Interesting news


A House Democratic lawmaker said late last week that he'd heard Nancy Pelosi wouldn't seek another term as Speaker.

Rep. Mike McIntyre (D-N.C.) said that not only would he not back Pelosi (D-Calif.) for Speaker again, but also that he'd heard she would not seek another term in that position.

"From what we're hearing, she's probably not going to run for Speaker again," McIntyre told WWAY-TV in North Carolina. "And if she does, I'm confident she's going to have opposition, and I look forward to supporting that opposition."

More here:

Well, Mike isn't too bad as Democratics go.  I have actually voted for him on several occasions in the past.  He voted my way about 90% of the time.  He's tough on illegal aliens, government spending, etc.  My main problem with him is he doesn't support The Fair Tax. 

My district hasn't had a Republican in office since just after the Civil War but I voted for the Republican candidate yesterday anyway.  That's right, I've already voted.  This district has early voting every day this week so my honey and I went yesterday.  I figure it this way .... why stand in line elbow to elbow with the libs on election day if you don't have to?

Fat Tony's menu sets off Klown's lib detector


OK, so a few days ago, Ragweed posted a short review of Fat Tony's Italian Pub in which he recommended the pizza.  I hardly ever make it up to Wilmington (over an hour away) so I didn't start making any plans that day.  However, it has come to my attention that "Americans For Prosperity" is having an event in Leland (about 10 minutes from Wilmington) this Saturday at 9:30AM.  I'm thinking this will be a "Tea Party" type of event but they call theirs "November Is Coming."



So I thought to myself, "Hmmmmmm, if this works out it could be a chance to try out Fat Tony's Italian Pub. "  Naturally, I jumps into cyberspace action to start to begin to commence to checking 'er out.  Well, I finds out they have pizza on the menu but only "Specialty Pizzas."  I'm assuming you can specify the ingredients but I didn't see that on the menu ... granted, I didn't look that hard, I'm not that interested.  Anyway, I'm clicking around there and I finds out they open at 11AM so that lunch could fit in just fine after the Americans For Prosperity event.

OK, so now I'm clicking around some more when I spot this jewel for the conservative eyeball.

Cigar, pipe and clove cigarette smoking is allowed on our patios -- but not indoors.  Thank you.
Ha ha, and it appears just like that ... with those specific words bolded.  I mean, please ... "clove cigarettes" but not regular cigarettes?  Cigars & pipes but not regular cigarettes?  Or is this just a screwup by the person who designed the menu?  If so, why did they find it necessary to include clove cigarettes and exclude regular cigarettes?  I mean, c'mon, the Klown hates those shitstain smokers as much as the next guy but I'm smelling a big fat greasy lib close by.  

Clove cigarettes ... who smokes those except for dipshit libs with weird haircuts and black lipstick?  Who even considers them a factor except for dipshit libs?  How much of a screaming lib do you have to be before it occurs to you to mention clove cigarettes on a menu?  Let me tell you something, I've never seen this type of idiocy before ... and I've read at least a billion menus in San Francisco ... so that ought to tell you something.

Ok, well, I must be getting soft in my old age or something because I'm not going to let this (by itself) deter me from trying out Fat Tony's.  However ... those of you who know the Klown will NOT be surprised when the subject is broached with the waiter.  I'll start off very nice about it but, if my Klowny senses are right, I'll soon be speaking with a manager and having some fun. Since it's an Italian joint, I may get to use my favorite word, capisce?

Hey! Stop calling Obama a socialist!!


(Bold is mine)
By Stanley Kurtz

On the afternoon of April 1, 1983, Barack Obama, then a senior at Columbia University, made his way into the Great Hall of Manhattan’s Cooper Union to attend a “Socialist Scholars Conference.” There Obama discovered his vocation as a community organizer, as well as a political program to guide him throughout his life.

The conference itself was not a secret, but it held a secret, for it was there that a demoralized and frustrated socialist movement largely set aside strategies of nationalization and turned increasingly to local organizing as a way around the Reagan presidency — and its own spotty reputation. In the early 1980s, America’s socialists discovered what Saul Alinsky had always known: “Community organizing” is a euphemism behind which advocates of a radical vision of America could advance their cause without the bothersome label “socialist” drawing adverse attention to their efforts.

A loose accusation of his being a socialist has trailed Obama for years, but without real evidence that he saw himself as part of this radical tradition. But the evidence exists, if not in plain sight then in the archives — for example, the archived files of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), which include Obama’s name on a conference registration list. That, along with some misleading admissions in the president’s memoir, Dreams from My Father, makes it clear that Obama attended the 1983 and 1984 Socialist Scholars conferences, and quite possibly the 1985 conclave as well. A detailed account of these conferences (along with many other events from Obama’s radical past) and the evidence for Obama’s attendance at them can be found in my new book, Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism.

No, public schools aren't liberal at all


Three van loads of Hughes High students were taken last week – during school hours – to vote and given sample ballots only for Democratic candidates and then taken for ice cream, a Monday lawsuit alleges.

The complaint was made by Thomas Brinkman Jr., a Republican candidate for Hamilton County auditor, and the Coalition Opposed to Additional Spending & Taxes against Cincinnati Public Schools.

“They plan to bring four more high schools (to vote) this week,” Christopher Finney, COAST attorney, said Monday after filing the suit.

It seeks a temporary restraining order to prevent school officials from participating or helping students participate in partisan politics during school hours or with school property or employees involved.

But the school district’s lawyer denies any school connection.

“No CPS personnel engaged in the promotion of candidates or any political party,” CPS attorney Mark Stepaniak noted in a written release.

LOL. It sounds to me like this guy expected he might have a problem and was sure to cover his ass just in case. He's one of those "smart" guys. He probably told this lawyer "I did it just this way so nobody would be able to prove anything -- ha ha ha."

Another genius Republican


Really? And tell me, when did you "decide" to be straight (if you are.) Let me guess, you were sitting there in junior high thinking, "Well, it's time to decide whether I'll be gay or straight" - right?

And, even if it WERE a "choice," what gives you the right to limit the rights and freedoms of other people based on their "choice" in that matter? If you claim to be a conservative and you don't stand up for the freedom of ALL people then I have no use for you.  We've simply got to purge the Republican party of these morons.
 

LOL @ "Steal the rugs ..."

Pizza

 


If you ever go to Wilmington NC, you should try "Fat Tony's" pub. The pizza was excellent and they used fresh mushrooms and cooked to perfection. The pizza was right up there on my list. We had it with sausage, mushrooms, & onions. You had to eat the first 2 bites with a fork cause it was to heavy and keep all the shit on it. The bar staff is very friendly and the bar itself appears to be clean and organized. (not that I would give a shit) Well if you ever get there try it I think you will agree.
