    Very pretty pic!

    OK, here’s a theory from The Three Percenter’s Club on FB, and I kinda agree with it:

    “The Saudi national that was a person of interest is being deported and now Obama is meeting with the Saudi prince, hmm. According to all the news sources the FBI released pictures to law enforcement agencies of two men who’re thought to be connected in the Boston Marathon bombing. This is how I know this was an attack by Islamic Terrorist, because if it was right wing extremist like the media and the Obama regime was trying to get everyone to believe, their picture would’ve be released to everyone and the media would be crucifying all the patriot groups…the fact is Obama doesn’t want us to know that the peaceful religion of Islam isn’t so peaceful…we already knew, Obama!”

    Especially agree with the fact that they find every-other-dang-body lickedy split, but this guy-whomever-he-is? “No clue”, “no leads”. Fuzzy pics and conflicting stories regarding arrests or not. The confusion seen in the media all day yesterday is, from my blinkered perspective, indicative of the same confusion with Bengazi– that there are real things happening, that we’re no supposed to know about, and a few people are leaking, but the turth–like Bengazi– makes the administration look really, really bad.

    That’s my $0.02 (which as we know these days is practically worthless ^_^)!

    Immigration Bill Gives New Legals $3,000 Hiring Edge

    “Under the immigration reform bill, some employers would have an incentive of up to $3,000 per year to hire a newly legalized immigrant over a U.S. citizen.”

    WTF?! Rubio, this better not have been your idea!

    This was posted over at Twitchy yesterday. Still freakin’ hilarious!

    Ouch: CNN’s sloppy Boston bombing coverage inspires major mockage

    Good grief.

    Homebuilders scrap ‘master bedroom’ because of racist, gender-biased connotations

    Why? In large part for exactly the reason you would think: “Master” has connotation problems, in gender (it skews toward male) and race (the slave-master).

    Enter the owner’s suite.

    Seriously? Owner’s suite? That’s stupid. I’ve always heard “slave-owner” more than “slave-master”.

    Senate passes amendment to prevent media from releasing gun owner maps

    Wow. Common sense.

    Funny. Mitch McConnell mocks Harry Reid via Facebook.

  11. PYONGYANG, DPRK (BHN) – The North Korean military is now claiming leader Kim Jong-Un personally carried out the bombing attack in Boston.
    “Our glorious and brave leader carried out his threats with a strong action deep in enemy territory,” claimed the statment released Wednesday morning.
    A photo (below) posted by the DPRK News Agency purports to show Kim planting a pressure cooker bomb at the marathon.
    Sources report North Korea has become increasingly angry with the lack of attention their threats have received since the Boston bombing.

    Parody from BigHairyNews.

    • This is extraordinary. We should all be protesting the POS POTUS for supporting Morsi, but the Copts have the balls to do it, and the MSM doesn’t even cover it. I hope this can become a bigger story, but I’m not holding my breath.

    A Canadian’s Version of David Letterman’s Top 10 – This is what other countries think of us, in this case Canada. Do we look like idiots or what?

    10) Only in America …could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 a plate campaign fund-raising event.

    9) Only in America …could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when they have a black President, a black Attorney General, and roughly 18% of the federal workforce is black while only 12% of the population is black.

    8) Only in America …could they have had the two people most responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geithner (the head of the Treasury Department) and Charles Rangel (who once ran the Ways and Means Committee), BOTH turn out to be tax cheats who are in favor of higher taxes.

    7) Only in America …can they have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and have the media primarily react by fretting that Muslims might be harmed by the backlash.

    6) Only in America…would they make people who want to legally become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege, while they discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just ‘magically’ become American citizens.

    5) Only in America …could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country’s Constitution be thought of as “extremists.”

    4) Only in America …could you need to present a driver’s license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote.

    3) Only in America …could people demand the government investigate whether oil companies are gouging the public because the price of gas went up when the return on equity invested in a major U.S. oil company ( Marathon Oil) is less than half of a company making tennis shoes (Nike).

    2) Only in America …could the government collect more tax dollars from the people than any nation in recorded history, still spend a Trillion dollars more than it has per year – for total spending of $7-Million PER MINUTE, and complain that it doesn’t have nearly enough money.

    And finally,

    1) Only in America …could the rich people – who pay 86% of all income taxes – be accused of not paying their “fair share” by people who don’t pay any income taxes at all.
