OT, but my wife and I went over to my mother's house to give her her birthday gift. She just turned 88. My wife was walking around looking at the unusal pictures, statues and sculptures sitting around. My mom kept telling her to take anything she liked because they were hideous and too bizarre for her tastes. I bought her all of them over the years. I had to walk into the kitchen because I couldn't stop laughing. I gave her a gift card this year.
Herpy Bathday, mom!
She's getting a little bit loose in her talk anymore. She dropped the f-bomb on us in casual conversation this afternoon.
I'm not going to get it stitched up. I superglued it shut. I've done that a couple of times before. It's swelled up and a little black and blue.
Also, tell the doctor 'you should see the MIL'.
For 88 she's pretty good. OT, but I fell out of bed about 30 minutes ago. I've got a three inch gash on the side of my head immediately to the left of my eye.. We got the bleeding stopped and bandaged it up. I'll go to the dr when they open up at 9 and see if it needs stitched up. You can see white stuff. It looks fairly deep. I'm pretty sure I'll have a black eye in the morning. I think I'll move the night stand a little further from the bed. lol.
<sigh>I guess my wordplay was too crude.</sigh>
Anyway, I gathered that she was suffering the slings and arrows of old age. Hope she's ok.
Her friends must be rightwingers. It'll do that to you,
Romney to appear at CPAC. Atlas Shrugged:
What Obamacare did today: (hint: it's a good thing; sorry, wingers)
I prefer to think of him as a one person volmitorium.
"Hopey-changey millenials getting crushed…"
Odd that the groups that voted for Obama in massive numbers are taking the greatest hits. Well, Ol PT did say that there was one born every minute.
Well, when the economy was destroyed by the Republicans, the deficit was being run up by the Republicans, they were looking to cut spending on education while we were in school, they did nothing about the accelerating cost of tuition and the debts it gives us, they give tax breaks to the mega rich who we can't join unless we were born into it, they watched and helped as jobs got shipped overseas, and now that the world is going to crap, they're trying to cut the programs that might keep us afloat while we wait for their mess to get fixed. I don't know if the hopey-changey thing is working or not. All I know is that it's not the one actively trying to rape us.
(Ok, fine, I'm Canadian, but I am a millennial and I was certainly watching this all unfold as I grew up)
@paulejb Hopey-Changey how cute. Keep channeling Sara Palin and keep being as irrelevant as she is.
"Schumer: Chuck Hagel ‘almost had tears’ in meeting"
Hell! Anyone would almost have tears in their eyes from laughing hysterically at this pile of dreck that you are peddling.
@paulejb Or perhaps he just couldn't believe how fast the vultures in the Republican party would turn on one of their own. A rabid weasel would be proud.
Never doubt that the left is coming for your guns. Support the NRA!
"Never doubt that the left is coming for your guns."
Never doubt that the right is coming for your Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Unemployment benefits, retirement, hospitalization and civil rights. Guess which side I'm more afraid of?
The ones with the guns?
@paulejb The NRA- Lobbying for Criminals to have guns. Because nothing makes American safer than felons with fire arms.
In Obama's vision of America, ONLY criminals would have guns.
Seriously paulejb. You used to be somewhat amusing back in the day. Now you're trying so darn hard being insufferable. Do you really crave our attention so hard? It's like the fewer that even bother paying any attention to you the more shriek and dumb you post.
Show some respect for yourself. I mean really. You've gone way beyond pathetic and lame at this point. You're like the girl who liked to get spanked and when that's not enough asks someone to spit on her or give her a 'golden shower'. It's to the point people feel dirty and icky trying to discuss things when you're around. You're like that really bad movie you can't even make fun of. Take a hint; 3x, rusty and bunch are not around anymore. THEY don't want to waste their time.
You're not the last para trooper. You're the last village idiot in the ruin of your movement screaming LEEZEN.
We're not listening bud - we're pointing and laughing and even that have lost its charm. Come on. Don't do this to yourself. You're not representing yourself or your movement very well.
Barry is doing his Chicken Little impression.
Gee, this is a shocker - no longer the majority.. or on it's way to no longer being.. and the sky is falling:
New data: Whites twice as likely to own guns A previously unreleased survey shows whites far more likely to own guns, and oppose reform, than blacks or Latinos
@outsider2011 That's the scariest stat I've seen in a while.
We've been watching paulie's rhetoric escalate for weeks. ("The Dems are a comin to take muh guns and manhood!") He's already talked up his 'unreported race war'.
It most cases its's all just blustering xenophobes, but when they're that heavily armed....
The headline says it all.
Liberal memories are short. They have the attention span of a gnat.
Do you ever listen to the whole video before you make some stupid attack about a single line?
"Either Congress comes up with 1.2 Trillion dollars... or the sequester kicks in"
At the time and today, I took it to mean that for him to not veto, they would have to provide an alternate to the sequester that impacts the deficit as much as the sequester. I see no evidence that he violated that statement.
@paulejb They have the attention span of a gnat.
Says the guy who contradicts himself from post to post.
So the Number One Tax Cutter-in-Chief John Boehner thinks that Pres. Obama is a failure and a loser because of the sequester? So he was for the sequester before he was against it? He should change his name to John Flip-flop.
Ok, this was too funny to save until tomorrow, so I'm interrupting 'Paulie's Playhouse'.
Headline from The Blaze! (which I'm not going to link to)
HAVE YOU HEARD THE WWE’S WILDLY RACIST ‘TEA PARTY’ WRESTLING CHARACTER NAMED JACK SWAGGER?
(Yes, The Blaze does everything in all caps)
Even Pro Wrestling has caught on that the Tea Party is a bunch of xenophobic Archie Bunker wannabes fit only for mocking. If you're too rightwing for Pro frickin Wrestling, you know you've jumped the shark.
This continued misogyny or just hubris? Either way, another instance of GOP class:
Bob Beckel stunned his own co-hosts when he suggested that rape does not happen on college campuses during Tuesday's "The Five."
The Fox News roundtable was debating Colorado legislation that would allow women to carry concealed weapons to prevent sexual assault at colleges. Beckel was skeptical, and asked, "When's the last time you heard about rape on a college campus?"
"What?!" Kimberly Guilfoyle reacted.
"What are you talking about?" an indignant Eric Bolling said. "It's rampant."
"Oh, it's rampant?" Beckel asked. "Rapes on campus?!" Bolling responded. "Where?" Beckel wanted to know.
"In particular, date rape on campus," Dana Perino added.
"Yea, date rape, that's one problem," Beckel conceded, "but you gonna take a gun out and shoot your date?"
An estimated 20%-25% of women in college reported experiencing an attempted or a completed rape during college, according to the Center For Disease Control. New York University's statistics about rape on campuses also report that one in five women raped during their college years.
Beckel is no stranger to making controversial statements on air. Earlier this month, he referred to the appearance of his eyes as "Oriental," and was quickly reprimanded by co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle. He has also dropped the f-bomb numerous timeson "The Five."
It's all part of the Democrat war on women. The Democrat party where NO means YES.
Why are you responding with an ad hominen attack? We aren't defending Beckel, we point out when our own people are idiots, and flooding this thread with ad hominen attacks, aside from doing what Paulie wants, contributes nothing to the actual debate?
Mantis, why respond to this crap? He took a story about the GOP saying rape doesn't exist, and tried to tie it to the Dems.
It was useless and transparently desperate. Don't qualify his idiocy with replies. All it does is dignify him - and he doesn't not deserve that when he says something as patently stupid as the GOP saying rape doesn't exist is part of the dem war on women (never mind that it's the GOP who are warring with women, and Dems who are defending them).
@paulejb @mantisdragon91 @outsider2011 Is that why the Republicans want rapists to have child custody rights? You see Troll you can throw lies and BS in this board all day long and yet the facts remain the same and the fact is that the Republican Party and Islamic Fundamentalists have more in common when it comes to disdain for women than you are comfortable admitting.
