It's the Fleabaggers!

Haha! The fleabaggers! Love it and especially enjoy seeing Michelle Obama in the crowd...right where she belongs.

Thank you, smokey! This one made my day!


The Face Of Occupy

Wow. How pathetic. No wonder they can't find a job, looking the way they do. I loved some readers comment from another site...here they are:

" They are so high that if they didn’t lean on each other they would be on the ground in the poop."
" Hey, leave those two alone! All they want is their fair share of what the rest of us earned."
"Maybe they’re sharing a tender moment, but keep it to hugs, that lip metal might prove troublesome. They might need a welder, "
"Just be home in time for dinner kids', Love mom "


Occupy, you say?

Yes! These soldiers got the right idea!


Oh, Christmas Tree

During our six years of full timing, we never had a Christmas tree, even though we had the room for a tabletop tree.
So, this weekend we made a trip to target and purchased a little three foot tree. We found some inexpensive ornaments, tree skirt, and an angel for the top. What's very unusual for us is the fact that we put the tree up already. Definitely broke our 'wait until after Thanksgiving' rule, but that's okay. It is time to get in the holiday spirit.

Our daughter will be here right after Christmas to bring in the new year with us, so we will celebrate Christmas with her just as we did when the kids were growing up. Then on New Years Eve, we will be attending the Boston Bruins vs. Dallas Stars hockey game. Amanda is an avid Bruins fan and I know she'll be wearing the black and gold Bruins colors, so let's hope there are plenty of others cheering for Boston in Dallas.


Happy Veterans Day

Thank you, Veterans, for your sacrifice and your service to this great country of ours.


A new Tax...yippee

Oh cool! A Christmas tree tax! Only they're not calling it a tax, they're calling it a fee....and they say it's not to generate revenue.....the monies will be used by the appointees of the Board (for the new Federal program), so they can research, pass ideas about, and promote the image of Christmas trees. Say what??
First, it IS a tax. Second, it IS to generate revenue, and third...now we have yet another federal program? Goodness, my guess is that by next Christmas, the tax will increase to cover the increasing costs of the Christmas tree promotion Board. Below are the particulars:

President Obama’s Agriculture Department today announced that it will impose a new 15-cent charge on all fresh Christmas trees — the Christmas Tree Tax — to support a new Federal program to improve the image and marketing of Christmas trees.
In the Federal Register of November 8, 2011, Acting Administrator of Agricultural Marketing David R. Shipman announced that the Secretary of Agriculture will appoint a Christmas Tree Promotion Board. The purpose of the Board is to run a “program of promotion, research, evaluation, and information designed to strengthen the Christmas tree industry’s position in the marketplace; maintain and expend existing markets for Christmas trees; and to carry out programs, plans, and projects designed to provide maximum benefits to the Christmas tree industry” (7 CFR 1214.46(n)). And the program of “information” is to include efforts to “enhance the image of Christmas trees and the Christmas tree industry in the United States” (7 CFR 1214.10).

The 15 cent fee will be charged to Christmas tree sellers, and of course the fee will be passed to the consumer.



When you believe the lie, this is what you get.
Did these kids really think that after four or six years of college and tens of thousands in student loan debt, that they would walk from the college directly to a job earning six figures?? Even I, a self admitted, not ashamed to say it, high school dropout could have told these idiots it DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY!!

But, here they are, all the over educated idiots blaming everyone else for their own stupidity. I've been saying for two years now that the next bubble to burst will be the student loans/college education.....gettin' ready to pop, especially now that Obama has nationalized student loans, so lucky us! We The taxpayers will get to pay for the mistakes of the morons. AHH, such joy.


Sunday humor

Thanks, Dina!


November 5th


Well, they've all got one thing in common (besides being stupid). They're wearing masks to resemble Guy Fawkes.
This guy, below is Guy Fawkes. He goes way back to like 1605, or something. I guess he was responsible for attempting to blow up the British Parliament with gun powder. He was later tried, convicted and was to be hung. On the day of his hanging, he managed to jump from the scaffolding, fell and broke his neck. Bottom line, the guy was a loser.
In Britain, November 5th is considered Guy Fawkes day and is celebrated by bonfires and the burning of effigies of Fawkes. Personally, I don't get the connection. The guy was not a hero, he was a punk. OHHHH, that's gotta be it! These protestors are punks, too. Okay, that makes sense.

Two things to note: tomorrow is November 5th, the following is a quote from a news story today:
“Remember, remember the 5th of November” warns “V,” the anonymous rebel who sparks a revolution in the 2006 movie “V for Vendetta.”
Based on the comic book series and graphic novel of the same name, the film — and especially the mask worn by “V” — has become a symbol of discontent among Occupy protesters."

Tomorrow has also been declared 'bank transfer day'. The Facebook page set up for the bank transfer day has an avatar of the mask as their symbol. Who is supporting bank transfer day? None other than MoveOn.org, which when you follow the money, takes you directly to George Soros. And who is Soros? Master puppeteer and Obama is one of his many puppets. They are inciting violence. These people WANT a revolution.



Scenes from OWS in Oakland and Seattle

It's quite disturbing, don't you agree? These punks not only have no respect for people or property, but they have no clue what they're even protesting about. Death to capitalism??? If it weren't for Capitalism, they wouldn't have an iPhone to text or tweet...they wouldn't have been able to go to college and rack up tens of thousands in debt...they wouldn't have any of the opportunities they COULD take advantage of. No, these OWS demonstrations are much bigger and deeply rooted than appears. This is precisely what Van Jones, Obama, and the likes want. They are fueling the fire...they are funding these protests through organizations like ACORN, the unions and George Soros.

Obama has been very quiet as these protests have intensified. Why? Because this is what he has called for from the beginning. This is Cloward and Piven in action. Google Frances Fox Piven. These protestors are not going away. They will only become angrier and more violent. Those in front and on the streets are merely the pawns, and they are so completely stupid they don't even know what they're fighting for.



Is this not the most beautiful horse ever?


Friendship through the years

Amanda flew to Florida last weekend, joined by her college roommates. Despite living in four different states, they promised to always meet up at least once a year, if only for a weekend. It's been almost six years since their freshman year at Anderson University, and they remain the best of friends, enjoying their time together today as young ladies. Bridget lives in D.C., Savannah, North Carolina, Kyleigh in Florida, and Amanda in Arizona. I love how four strangers from six years ago have formed lasting friendships, and they are just as silly today as they were when they were 18.
