That actually pays taxes…
The odd thing is that she posts to a site wanting MORE government. Could she be so crass as to want more government but not to pay for it? Hmmm… maybe.
My suggestion… try marriage. Maybe give estmen.com a shot….then all this is HIS problem. (-:
I left college with no debt and excellent job prospects in the worst recession since the depression (the one before this one). Admittedly we had a President that actually liked the country, so maybe I did have an easier go of it.

Somebody walked over this spill on a sidewalk and noticed that, eerily, it had spilled to look like a wolf howling at the moon:

171 Days ago Sally Davies bought a McDonald’s Happy Meal:
Day 1 Day 171
She photographed it every day and so far it is holding up fine.
She loses me however with this:
Sitting on a shelf in her apartment, Sally has watched the Happy Meal with increasing shock and even her dogs have resisted the urge to try and steal a free tasty snack.
Dog’s not only eat Happy Meals, they LOVE Happy Meals. At least my dogs do. Not that I intentionally feed one to them, but if the trash is left out they will dig in heartily.
That said… I like McDonald’s. Especially their Angus Burger and Southern Chicken Sandwich.
Good thing he wasn’t compared to a cat
Obama complaining about folks talking about him “like a dog” bothered me today. For two obvious reasons… one is that Presidents shouldn’t bitch about negative comments. The second is nobody has actually compared him to a dog.
But underlying my irritation was a 3rd reason that it just sounded “odd”, but I couldn’t put my finger on it.
Vox Day identifies what is odd about Obama’s complaint, from an American perspective:
To me, the most interesting aspect of this is that the first negative thing that sprang to mind when Obama wanted to express how people were badmouthing him, he thought of "a dog". That is not a normal American expression. One works like a dog, one is as loyal as a dog, one is dog-tired, whereas the negative forms tend to utilize the term "bitch" instead. Using dog in this perjorative sense is much more common in the Arab world.
So he may not be a Muslim (now), but his upbringing in the Muslim world has given him a fundamentally non-American way of thinking.
Which could be an excellent explanation for his un-American policies.
A golfer claims his swing, hitting a rock, caused a wild fire in California:
On his next swing, his club snagged a rock, causing a spark that lit the rough ablaze and eventually attracted 150 firefighters to the scene
Now if I were a betting man, I’d bet that this golfer was a smoker. Or possibly that this guy had a gas golf cart that had a hot muffler. But I’m VERY dubious the spark off a club hitting a rock can start a fire. Mao Tse-tung may believe it, but I don’t. Mythbusters… make a show!
The DEA needs 9 Ebonics translators to help them translate wiretaps of southeastern African American drug criminals.
Some worry this somehow legitimizes Ebonics, but it doesn’t.
When I was last in Atlanta I encountered Ebonics. A helpful rental car employee gave us instructions but I had NO IDEA what he said. I claimed I couldn’t hear him due to a car going by and asked him to repeat. After three times I sorted out I should head “that way”, but knew none of the details. He was trying to be helpful, but alas I wasn’t “hip” enough to understand him. I’m usually better with actual foreigners because they are actually trying to speak English, but poorly. Ebonics is English minus the understandable parts.
Here is the 10 most uninsurable people on the planet… Read them all, but #9 struck me as particularly worthy – read it all to see the surprise ending…
9. Frane Selak
Mr. Selak’s had his first near run in with death in January of 1962 when the train he was on plunged into an icy river and killed 17 passengers. He escaped with only a broken arm.
The next year, while on a flight from Zagreb to Rijeka, the door of the cockpit blew open and he was thrown from the plane. Nineteen others were killed, but he escaped nearly unharmed after landing miraculously in a haystack.
In 1966, he was on a bus that crashed into a river. Four others were killed, but Selak escaped unharmed.
In 1970, he escaped uninjured after a faulty fuel pump engulfed his car with flames.
In 1973 another of Selak’s cars caught fire, and flames were forced back through the air vents, singeing his hair but leaving him otherwise uninjured.
In 1995 Selak was hit by a city bus, but walked away nearly unscathed.
In 1996 he escaped after driving off a cliff to escape an oncoming truck. He landed in a tree and watched as his car exploded 300 feet below him.
In 2003, things turned around and he won $1,000,000 in the Croatian lottery. Figures…
Wild. All 10 of them are particularly uninsurable!
Interesting faculty attire at this Plano, Tx schoo:

Or maybe Congress needs a Chief Exorcist as well? The Devil certainly has an office suite there.
My son just sent me this picture of a MIG 25 Foxbat that the Iraqi’s buried to try and hide it from us:
Makes you wonder what else they’ve buried in Iraq and Syria….
I’ve known very few nuns in my life, but those I have met did seem to have a good sense of humor.
