And I want once more to thank everyone publicly, and again marvel at the charity, respect and affection a group can create even though most of us will never meet in person.
I cannot imagine this happening among the readers of Daily Kos, or the Huffington Report; the hate gets in the way every time.
It was a fine turnout last Saturday on a very cold day in Gillette, Wyo.; the average age of attendees was perhaps 45-55. That in itself was a tribute to a 83-year-old “Grandpa” with a knack for mentoring young men.
The number of mourners at most funerals for that age group are small given that the guest of honor has outlived most of his peers. A grandson, Chris, summed it up best: “What do I do now? My best friend was 83, and now he’s gone.”
The church music was great; country western hymns—”How Great Thou Art”, “Amazing Grace”—that have real meaning for working class American families; I noticed myself, Uncle Gene, and a few others tapping our toes in the amen pews.
Dad crossed over in a suit, no tie; with notes from family and friends, his 50-year Masonic lapel pin… with 20-some welding rods among the floral spray, and his welding gloves.
He’ll need them, The Boss is always looking for a good welder.
Obama’s latest kabuki theater performance
Somewhere in his new garage filled with tools and more stuff he’ll never throw away or have to, JD is grousing:
“That jackass Obama just told that conference his time in the health meeting doesn’t count against the democrats’, “… because I'm The President."
“Where’s that guy that called him a liar a few weeks ago?”
I have to admit… I thought the GOP should have told His Eminence to pound sand on the summit and refused to play loser in a rigged game; but what the news coverage indicates is that the repubs are headed for a knock out that will resonate with an increasingly hostile public.
Not long ago I thought conservatives and libertarians had reason for real hope as Obama continues to circle the drain with increasing speed. I was thinking Romney whom I supported in 2008.
I’ll never be able to figure it out… the knock on the guy was that he was right-center, a self-made billionaire, a man of faith, the same wife and five nice kids, and has Hollywood good looks; yep, being too perfect DQ’ed him; that and being a member of the LDS.
Hell of a thing when people whose religion advocates beheading “infidels” are considered “mainstream” and “peaceful”, and Mormons are viewed with suspicion.
Well, we can forget Romney all together for 2012 because he has already endorsed McCain’s re-election. This despite the fact that the senior senator from Arizona is the poster boy for everything that’s wrong with the GOP, and it’s puny, flaccid, token opposition to the socialism of America.
Purge… ? No big tent…? No hands across the aisle…? No “mavericks”?
Yes, yes, yes and absolutely yes.
Victory is our guys standing on their airstrip; nothing less.
The socialists must be crushed; the vermin of Marx and Lenin and Obama-mentor Saul Alinsky must be scattered to the winds so this war does not have to be fought ever again.
Nits breed lice… whether it is in Iran, Afghanistan, Imperial Japan, Nazi German… or in the United States of America.
We are running out of time; it’s clear that there is no winner in the first three tiers of GOP potential presidential standard bearers.
Two years ago I thought Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal , left, showed a spark with the potential to take flame. That lasted about a cup of coffee. He gave one very poor national speech and now he can’t get on C-SPAN.
So much for our very “own” Obama-like visitor from the mysterious east who is exotic, much smarter than white people, and yet sounds like any other Gulf Coast Bubba. Plus, he’s probably “clean” and can switch on and off his Kwik-E-Mart accent any time he wants.
Marco Rubio of Florida, the candidate for Republican Senate seat being vacated by a very lack-luster George LeMieux, is finished before breaking from the starting gate.
It seems that while Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives, Rubio charged nearly $110,000 over 25 months he used his GOP-issued credit card.
The problem is that:
The charges included $1,000 for auto repairs, $2,976 for a rental car, $765 for “computer supplies,” $68 at Happy Wine in Miami for “beverages” and “meal,” and $412 at a music equipment store for “supplies.”
Rubio described payments to a Tallahassee property management group, totaling $1,024, as personal, but the credit card records show the party paid for them.
Rubio insisted on Wednesday that he paid for all personal expenses billed to the credit card, and the rest of the charges were legitimate party expenses.
Trust me… we’re looking at another tip of the iceberg and that means Florida's best-known, closeted homo and Super-RINO, Gov. Charlie Crist, above, is likely headed for Congress as Bawney Fwank’s newest dance partner.
Television host and rock bassist Mike Huckabee? Barack Hussein Obama notwithstanding, American will never elect a man named Huckabee president.
Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty? No one from Minnesota can be trusted, surely we must have learned that by now, and no one can spell or pronounce his name anyway.
Never happen; the left and the McCain wing of the GOP were very successful rebranding her in the persona of Tina Fey… to hell with facts, this is the Big Leagues.
But the original truth has never changed: she is not presidential timber and can best serve her country by continuing to be the best man in the Republican party.
Baby Senator Scott “Truck” Brown? Ha ha ha ha hahahah, Ha ha ha ha hahahah Ha ha ha ha hahahah.
I’d vote for Dick Cheney in a, uh, heart beat, but running would be a suicide mission by a stupid man and he is not a stupid man; still he is far and away the best qualified to be president and there are 10 furlongs between him and his closest challenger… whomever that nobody may be.
