It would seem after four years, all Republicans get is an ambsace.

Was listening to Mark Levin last night and I have to agree......Boehner will capitulate, or cry, don't know which is worse.

Our country has chosen to remain with the ambsace, the miserable failure. Here are some of the consequences.
And as far as the too-often-repeated fiscal cliff, I say drive straight into it, a la Thelma and Louise. Back them up to the wall and DO NOT CAPITULATE! No retreat baby, no surrender.

What a great idea for a graphic!

Can a Freeper come up with a picture of Thelma and Louise going off the cliff in the '65 T-bird with Obama driving and Reid in the passenger seat?

Had not heard any of that about him. I just know he has been ineffective and blabbering about the next four years. He needs a set, thought he was born with them.

The ambsace in Tuesday’s election for Wisconsin is that the Rs have taken the Senate with 1 vote (possibly 2 if the Rs win the recount). We need 2 because one of our Rs capitutlates all over the place and causes us to lose votes.

Tioga — I thought you wrote that you needed to find a new HUBBY. Glad I read it twice. LOL.

You might take up “prepping” as a “hobby” if you haven’t already.

This pig’s gonna crash, and SOON.
Get your garden and chickens going.
(Hint on the chickens - just get hens, no roosters, and you can keep the neighbors from snitching on you for “long enough”.)

Oh, I see you need to spend some time listening to Jack Spirko (survivalpodcast), and perhaps hanging out on Kartographer’s threads.

It’s not viable to raise your chickens for eating.
Their purpose is to turn table scraps into egg protein.

For meat, it’s rabbits. Rabbits and chickens are necessary survival tools. Rabbits have the added benefit of making superior compost.

And, glad to hear that you’re in a place where you can have “livestock”, that’s a big leg up.

To OUT him, we need to get something dirty on him and make it very, very Public. But even then, how do we know the replacement for him isn’t more of a sell-out? Just takes our chances, I guess.

LOL I live in an historic village and 100 years ago it was legal, still is. No one but the Pakistanis who live out back have ever done it since I have lived here. They had two goats and the cops harassed them. Told them they could not take them to the park, because we have laws about them defecating there. They would walk them right through my yard to get them there. They had an old car and the goats would climb it and hang out, I used to stop and watch them while on my walks. That was back in 2001, so you can imagine how popular those goats were. Not a good idea to call attention to yourself at that time. My mother was dying that summer, she lived with us. I used to entertain her with stories of the goats. Don’t know what happened to them, but local legend is they slaughtered the goats for a celebration feast. LMAO They are ok as neighbors go. Don’t know them too well, but they get along with everyone. Many neighbors are quite fond of them.

My niece called to say "Tough luck". I helped her thru a little financial difficulty this past summer, not the first time either, and now I get "Tough Luck". She already started her Christmas shopping, so come January she'll be in a financial bind. And she'll call. And I will send her a card, and it will say "Tough luck".

It just downed on me that in the name of Ambassador Stevens, Obama should replace the title "Ambassador" to "Ambsace".

My DH works for the defense industry. Layoffs were scheduled and didn’t happen, then we learned of the coercion of the Obama admin regarding defense cut layoffs. Depressing place to work these days. The lemmings were in DH’s office gloating that their man got another 4 years. He’s speculating on which one will go on Jan 1st and praying it’s not him.

My ambsace this AM is that I made it to Sam’s Club during the early hours for business. We belong both to Sam’s and to Costco. It is interesting because Costco is the preferred shopping spot around here — much nicer neighborhood. But, their hours are crummy, and they don’t have much of a selection for business. And both the clientele and the other shoppers are horrid. I’ve actually been accosted by other shoppers at Costco. Snippy, horrid women.

I never go to Sam’s this early, but I did this AM because my accountant is coming in today to help me close October. I’m SO glad I went there. Not only did I have the run of the place this AM, but they serve free coffee and juice for early shoppers! They even had an array of fresh fruit and pastries layed out. Not sure if those were free, or whether they were just advertising their elevated buffet servers. THe orange juice was served in a cut “crystal” urn! Very la-de-dah! Although I’d already had breakfast, the second cup of coffee for the road really hit the spot. And I got all my business needs purchased that should hold me for another 2 months!

Good grief! If I’d only known how nice they are at 7 AM, I’d have shopped there early all the time. I feel totally pampered. (It doesn’t take much.) My husband is leaving for his annual hunting trip in Missouri on Sun., so I think I’ll go back tomorrow at 7 AM to purchase “stuff” for him to take. And to enjoy another cup of free coffee.

Very soothing song. Thanks. My day just crashed. The 5th grader I tutor has mislead me (lied?) about the due date of his SS project. We would have had it done last night, but he insisted he had to do it in school. I was skeptical...he had early dismissal and guess what? It WAS due today. I am going with his mother to his parent teacher conference in a few mintutes. I am not expecting it to go well. (sigh) I think his mother will cry. He will be punished. All preventable. I am getting discouraged.

The misery factor. Yes that’s a great way to put it.
Well the weeping was bad Tuesday night, easy to tear up on Wednesday, no tears on Thursday, Friday,,,well just the general overall feeling of doom. There’s a nice short easy word for us all, doom.

I will post everyday, just to keep my tagline countdown number correct.

Told the hubby I want to pull all our money out of the stock market this morning. He just looked at me like I’m from Mars. Seems to have no worries at all. Total denial of what is ahead.

Some boys really need extra help staying organized. Most of the ones I know have had that problem. I hope she doesn’t cry. That doesn’t solve anything. He needs consequences for this, which will be the failure, not the end of the world for a 5th grader, and an organizer to prevent it from happening again.

I’ve sctually seen that word before-

Obama mistakenly thinks
He’s been given a tool
By getting re-elected-
It won’t help his rule

He also got an ultimatum
And that’s not good at all-
His tool isn’t worth ambsace
And he’s set up for a big fall

The ultimatum is “fix this”-
He has no one left to blame
We are sick of enpty promises
And tired of playing this game

I think it is a fitting ultimatum-you broke it. Fix it. Now.

Actually, his conference was great. His grades in all subjects are up. He is reading below grade level, but has improved that since school started. Math is now one of his best subjects, instead of near failing grades from last year. I learned that they no longer teach printing and cursive writing, so I will undertake that. The teacher said the parents are told to do it at home, but alas, that was never done. I had them practice today with dry erase books for it that I had bought. I will have to get the cursive ones and let them try that. Loved his teachers, they were great. I can now picture him at school. I skipped the conference for the younger brother. My DH came home to stay with the boys while we went.

I have to laugh, his mom was all tarted up in high heeled boots with fringe down the side, skin tight jeans....OMGosh. She is nearly 40 and dresses like a single girl slut. We ran into the mother of another student and she looked like a normal mom, I noticed her check out the getup. Oh, well. She does love her boys and they are sweet.
