Saturday Stuff

Headless

We know where all the bodies are buried,” my sister’s friend snarled.

My sister gave me an evil smile over her shoulder.

“I have no idea what you’re talking about,” I said while trying to calm my pounding heart.

The Amazon (which is what I silently called my sister’s friend), held out her hands – six Barbie doll heads were nestled in her sweaty palms.

“You’re sick, do you know that?”

I shrugged. “Prove it.”

The Amazon nodded toward the window.

I looked.

Our chocolate Lab was digging – she buried her nose in the ground and tugged out a headless doll body.

“Stupid dog,” I muttered under my breath.

Obama’s Message: The Only Way for YOU to Be Better Off is for OTHERS to Be Worse Off

If that isn’t typical liberal logic, I don’t know what is.

As usual, Marco Rubio articulates what we, the rational-thinking, reality-based, Americans are thinking …

“The bottom line is this president inherited a country with serious problems. He asked the Congress to give him the stimulus and Obamacare to fix it. The Democrats in Congress gave it to him. And not only did it not work, it made everything worse.

“He tells those who are hurting that the only way they can be better off, is for others to be worse off. He tells all of us that the only way for some of us to climb up the economic ladder is for others to be pulled down.”

Sounds like a Utopian society to me…

Let’s vote this inexperienced whack president out of office and FIX his mess…. before he completely destroys us.

Added: Here’s an excellent summary of Obama’s campaign speech … er … State of the Union address from Biblical Conservatism:

Last night’s State of the Union address proved it. Considering we’ve seen this speech multiple times. He said “pay their fair share” four times, he used class warfare twenty-three times, blamed Congress sixteen times, and he blamed others twenty-two times. He proposed raising taxes eight times and demanded/requested more executive power to go around Congress five times. He asked for increased spending sixteen times. Then he proposed a few policies that he knows very well don’t have a snowball’s chance in July of passing into law. He talked about investing in “Green Energy” that is not even close to being a fitting replacement for fossil fuels (while not noting that his previous investments in “Green Energy” already resulted in bankruptcy – see Solyndra). This President doesn’t have a new idea. All he wants to do is spend more money that we don’t have. That’s all he’s got. He’s doubling and tripling down on the same bad policies that have failed. The only thing he was correct on was saying that it’s unlikely anything will get done in Congress this year. Of course, he didn’t mention that it’s his party that obstructs good policies and forces bad.
