I wonder if Obama has got one of those count down clocks registering how many days in office he has left. He probably goes " F#$%k not another decision, Oh well I'll use the old, we are examining our options line".

But simply by treating the Office of the President of the United States as his personal travel agency for not only himself, but his family.

And by using that office as his own version of the William Morris Agency and the repeated appearances on talk shows, bad comedy shows, rap concerts, etc, etc, etc.
During Mr. Clinton's administration, we had the World Wide Travel Agency affair and Harry Thomason and all that ilk. So the personal travel agency mold's been cast long ago.

To his credit, wings folded recognized his positions have been refuted by reality and, rather than stick around to whip a dead horse, chose a graceful exit.

I have popped in to read, but not posted until now (18:43 zulu on the 14th) where I observe that there has been something like 18 hours of aphonia from you chaps.

You surely do not need my stimulus do you?

A very interesting fact that needs be used when the next inevitable anti-gun thread pops up.

Gun Homicide Rate Down 49% Since 1993 Peak; Public Unaware | Pew Research Center?s Social & Demographic Trends Project

Deaths by guns down 49% since 1993.

But you'd never know that if you watched NBC news all the time or listen to Obama.

Good news, that. Still some way to go though but a good start.

And there hasn't been 74 school shootings since Sandy Hook either.

Last week an everyday group of anti-gun nuts called Everytown published data that claimed there have been 74 school shootings since Sandy Hook. Most of us went, “No there haven’t,” because we’ve only read about a few. The president apparently does not have access to Google, because he ran straight to the papers and bleated, “There’s no developed country on earth that would put up with this. And it happens now once a week … We should be ashamed.” He’s accidentally right. We should be ashamed of these shootings. Gang violence among black youth is totally out of control and the lack of fathers has to be a factor. That’s obviously not the narrative he was going for, however. He was more likely going for the same old “evil, white, American patriarchy” garbage we were all taught in school.

So let’s take a step back and explain to children and the president of the United States that most of the truths they take for granted are completely false. For example …

Congratulations.

24 hours with nil input. No need to thank me for dragging you back to the top page.

Must not only be me who feels like a stranger (alien) on these pages.

Father's Day and all that... Some of us have lives, and repeating the Bumster's mistakes gets old.

She would have done the world a favor by using a contraceptive.

Does he know who that is ?

Or is their confusion over that like their is as to where he was born ?


I predict that 2 - 10 years after he leaves office, it will be "found" that he was born somewhere other than Hawaii !

He does seem a bit perplexed on Father's Day each year.
