Well, There’s a Small Agribusiness Downside

Okay, so some fancy pants writer in Colorado has a supposed solution for the way the Texas Legislature treated women this legislative session, especially the 24 hour wait period before a woman can get a perfectly legal abortion.

He thinks we need a moratorium on sparkin’.

Clearly there’s only one answer for this kind of Texas trash. Time to put a 24-hour hold on sex among Texans in the first place. For those Texans feeling amorous, they should be required to see their doctor or clergy, where they will be examined to determine levels of fertility. Then, they’ll be counseled about the problems of unplanned pregnancy and told that government programs may exist to help them with issues surrounding abstinence. Finally, they’ll be instructed that they cannot consummate their romantic notions for 24 hours.

We can’t do that.  We’d have to lock up the sheep.

Thanks to Larry for the heads-up.

Well, We’re Doing Something Right

Long time visitors here know that I have a little fan in Houston.  He’s a shy fella and uses the Houston Branch of the NAACP’s return address to send me racist, hateful, untrue Obama things in the United States mail.  I don’t mind that because I support the working men and women of the United States Postal Service, and I don’t suspect my little fan knows he’s supporting a union.

From past mails he’d sent me with his handwriting on them, we figured he was so old that they have to carbon date him know how many candles to put on his birthday cake down at the Happy Trails Senior Facility and Trailer Park.

Well, I hadn’t heard from him in a few months and figured he’d gone to that great dominoes and gripe session in the sky.

He’s baaaaaack.  And this time he sent a whole package.

Most of it was racist and all of it was hateful.  There wasn’t one constructive solution or idea in the whole mess.

So, I did what I always do with anonymous stuff —

And no I did not put it in the recycle bin.  I wasn’t willing to risk anybody seeing that racist crapola.

Now, if this guy is reading this.  I do not mind you supporting the working men and women of the United States Postal Service, but I want you to think about something:  I have the courage to put my name on what I think and I’m a little girl.  We are laughing at you, and the ladies are laughing the hardest.

But Not To Worry About Entertainment. The Bard of Wasilla is Back.

You know what I love about Democrats?  Well, lotsa things, but the fact that where others see dread, we see humor.

They released some of Sarah Palin’s emails.  Instead of just letting them melt though the garbage can and the sub flooring, a guy named Michael Solomon put them in a book in free verse form.

Here’s the best part.  You can get an afternoon of entertainment for 99 cents.  No, I am not kidding.   99 cents.  Hell, that’s less than one dollar!

The kids over at The Daily Beast gave us a preview.

Are You Flippin Kidding???

Oh GOD help us.
Are you flippin kidding???
Todd doesn’t have $12 million
That’s something else,
I don’t know what it stands for
Put this is a statement,
Others have asked about my opinion
On this latest:
But I hadn’t seen it
So didn’t know it was this

Eat your heart out, Carl Sandburg!

Thanks to Brian for the heads-up.

Oh Newt, We Hardly Knew Ye

February 29, 2012 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Except for spending some Vegas mogul’s dirty money, which is a good thing, Newt appears to be pretty much finished.  Again.

I hate that.  He was so much fun.  He and his parade of wives should have charged a fee to their sideshow.

When my kids were little, they had something called BopBags.  They were blowup toys about 3 feet high, weighted at the bottom.  When you punched them, they bounced back up for another punch.  That’s Newt.  He’s a BopBag and I have no doubt we’ll get to punch him again.

Last week, speaking at Oral Robert University, Gingrich said

“All of you should be very deeply concerned about national security. Barack Obama is the most dangerous president in modern American history.”

Last time I checked, President Obama had done more to rid the world of terrorists in three years than George Bush did in 8.

And then today, the two worst Republican nightmares, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton scored another point for the home team.

North Korea has agreed to a moratorium on nuclear activity at Yongbyon, its major nuclear facility, the U.S. State Department said Wednesday. North Korea also has agreed to a moratorium on long-range missile launches.

The announcement came Wednesday after a U.S. delegation returned from Beijing following a third exploratory round of bilateral talks.

Keep yakkin’, Noot.  The world needs more improvement and you making dire predictions seems to be the magic key.

I will miss Newt.  For a man who is so wrong about so much all the time, he was fun to bop.

Michigan and Arizona Primary results and Chat-a-Thon

Okay, this is an open comment section.

Share what you think.

Who won tonight?  Who lost?  And how much muck did Democrats stir up to get even for Rush Limbaugh sending his listeners to our primary in 2008?

This Is Priceless. Priceless, I Tell You.

Oh, you’re gonna love this.  Go get a cup of coffee and savor this moment. Read slowly so you can take it all in.

The Justice Department indicted a Rockwall, Texas doctor Tuesday morning for allegedly receiving $375 million in phony Medicare billings in what is considered to be the largest health care fraud case in American history.

First, congratulations to Attorney General Eric Holder for uncovering this massive fraud involving Dr. Jacques Roy of Rockwall, Texas.

And then, stroll on over to the FEC and see who Mr. Jacquez Roy wants to run our government.

Click the little one to see the big one.

How nice.  He supports the Tea Party.  Because, after all,  Medicare fraud would be so much easier with a smaller government, particularly a smaller Justice Department.

Thanks to Alfredo over at the Dairy Queen, who is serving up more than Hunger Busters today, for the heads-up.
