    In keeping with this mornings graphic:
    Louisiana Gov. Jindal claims ‘rebellion brewing’ against Washington
    “I can sense right now a rebellion brewing amongst these United States,” Jindal said, “where people are ready for a hostile takeover of Washington, D.C., to preserve the American Dream for our children and grandchildren.”
    Jindal gets it.People are angry and scared.There is a reason DHS and the iRS are being heavily armed and there is an increasingly intense effort to clamp down on legal gun ownership.Even normally rational people can reach a breaking point when they see no other alternative.

    I’m not ‘truly well off’ compared to wealthiest Americans, says Hillary Clinton… despite multi-million dollar properties and personal fortune estimated at $100million
    Hillary Clinton has been criticized for charging $200,000 speaking fees and saying she was broke in 2001, despite making $12 million that year
    On Saturday, Clinton said her wealth won’t be an issue with voters should she run for president again in 2016
    ‘They don’t see me as part of the problem because we pay ordinary income tax, unlike a lot of people who are truly well off – not to name names,’ Clinton said

    it seems to me like Killary is doing this just to aggravate people of conscience since she has convinced herself the presidency will be hers no matter what.It’s her legacy.Millions of idiots will enthusiastically vote for her to “make history” like they did with Emeperor Barack the first.

    “The epidemic is now in a second wave,” Bart Janssens, the director of operations for Doctors Without Borders told the Associated Press. “It is totally out of control.”

    The feud between the Obamas and ‘Hildebeest’
    “I hate that man Obama more than any man I’ve ever met, more than any man who ever lived,” Bill Clinton said to friends on one occasion, adding he would never forgive Obama for suggesting he was a racist during the 2008 election.
    Despite his claim to be “the first black president” Mr. Bent Penis has shown himself to be every bit the racist the old time Dixiecrats,like his mentor,J.William Fulbright and Albert R. Gore Sr. were when they voted against the 1964 civil rights act.
    He has stewed for 6 years seeing an incompetent clown doing the job he felt his co-conspirator was due.This bunch tries to put up a united front in public but they really,really loathe each other.

    So my question to Paul Ryan and other congressmen who claim to be after the truth is, why are you not subpoenaing these emails from the archives of SonaVault? If you aren’t doing that, then you should not be trusted as a person who is after the truth, but is merely a political version of a WWF wrestler who plays the part when before the cameras, but when you’re off camera you’re having drinks with the enemies of America.

    In her sixteen months of imprisonment and under the mismanaged “care” of BCH, Justina Pelletier’s health deteriorated from being a vibrant figure skater to being confined to a wheelchair, unable to walk on her own. Lou Pelletier says said Justina now has “no feeling at all below her hips.”

    • What a crime that is. But they’re doubling down on all of it. Mooch is saying now that parents can’t be trusted to feed their own kids right, and the gov’t has to “help.” I think I see where this is going.

    • What A Hoot says:

      Not only physically has she deteriorated but mentally and psychologically. Remember the issue was the parents insisted the girl had physical problems and the hospital said it was mental. How did that get treated? With tons of counseling that shapes the mind into seeing themselves as a victim that can’t cope with life because those evil people around the patient have abused them so badly. Tons of powerful ‘meds’ that will have severely damaged the nervous system. Withdrawal rehab will be necessary but not allowed because she is not physically fit to be taken off the drugs and the same drugs are designed to make you legitimately psycho when go off off of such. (As what happens to vets. I believe during their active duty they are medicated with ssri’s and/or other stuff without their knowledge and when they are discharged the drug is no longer there and a vet has instant PTS, which is handy in labeling incompetent and potential terrorists. This is not farfetched as I knew someone personally who was giving little pills with meals in Vietnam and when he came home was really whacked and almost non-functioning. He knew he wanted that pill and needed it and found out what it was but did not really understand what it was (I don’t remember exactly what it was but maybe valium or lithium).
      Anyways, when he was discharged he went funky and went looking for the pills. He was given a prescription but ordered that the requirement to have it refilled was he was not to tell anyone. Anyways, during a good time he got married. The family thought he was just suffering from whatever was ailing all these vets coming home (if only we had the internet back then) and what chaos and drama when they did find out the truth. It was almost ten years into the marriage and the wife felt betrayed because she should have known she was marrying someone on drugs at levels that were given to local mental hospital patients. It explained so much as to why he was walking around like an automaton or drone. Awake. To work, feet always shuffling. Home. Sit in chair. Stare. Go to bed. Repeat next day. I knew this family during this time. So, if was happening back then how about now. Creating large-scale PTS. Genius.

      Wow, I started out with a comment on Justina and end up with veterans!

    “On Sunday, of all days, a day of rest and theocratic contemplation of goodness for the entire country, published a shocking announcement from our good friends north of our border that disappointment with the Obama administration’s decision to delay approval of the Keystone XL pipeline, their government has approved the construction of a major pipeline to deliver oil to Asia.

    “News reports are flying about airstrikes by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) inside Syria, the most serious response by Israel to cross-border violence in the past several years. The IDF response came after an Israeli teenager was killed by an anti-tank missile from Syria over the weekend. What few media outlets are reporting, however, is that the teenager whose death sparked the operation is an Arab–and Muslim–citizen of Israel.”

    “After the commissioner’s testimony, a Twitter user went hunting for info on the IRS and discovered that as far back as 2005 a company named Sonasoft had announced that it had been awarded a data backup contract from the IRS. Even as late as 2009, the company had tweeted about its association with the taxing agency.”

    The final decision was “pushed back until after the election, because when people understand the impact on jobs, people get mad,” said Kathleen Sgamma, vice president of the Western Energy Alliance.

    “They know they’ve got a tight Senate race and they know that people in Colorado who are going to vote for the next senator are upset by actions that put jobs and economic growth off –limits,” Sgamma said.

    Critics of the decision fear the BLM is following the same playbook it used to list the lesser prairie chicken as threatened in Colorado, Texas, New Mexico, Kansas and Oklahoma.

    Detroit activists call for UN help as city shuts off water for thousands

    City’s water utility keeps raising rates as it falls further into debt; nearly half of customers are behind on payments
    The announcement sparked outrage among activists groups, who say the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) is going after the city’s most vulnerable citizens to shore up its bottom line.

    Sounds like Detroit Water is going to shut off the deadbeats, I don’t see a problem.

    Chick-Fil-A Shows Haters How To Have Respect
    Last week, a local franchise mourned with the town in Griffin, Georgia for a respected police officer who was killed in the line of duty. Officer Kevin Jordan, father of seven and Army vet, was shot five times in the back while trying to make an arrest at a local Waffle House, according to Mad World News.

    The company placed a sign in its drive-thru window telling customers that it would suspend service while Jordan’s funeral procession was traveling past the restaurant, in respect for the fallen.

    The sign read:

    “Chick-Fil-A of Griffin Dwarf House will suspend all transactions as the funeral processional for Officer Kevin Jordan passes our location Monday afternoon, June 9th. Thank you for helping us pay respect to our fallen officer.”

    there are a large number of kFC’s in our city….and one Chick-Fil-A.I pass about three KFC joints to get to the Chick-Fil-A that’s always busy,anytime of the day.The prices are reasonable,the food and service are excellent.I will support them as long as I retain the freedom to patronize the businesses I choose.

      Not completely accurate,my friend.To feel humiliation or remorse one first has to have a conscience.That won’t fly with this crime syndicate.They’re all so immersed in their own self-aggrandizement they don’t realize they are the absolute laughingstock of the globe.
      They delude themselves into thinking people like them…they really like them.

  24. Trophy Wife Myth Busted?
    So, we should believe a sociologist from Notre Dame about this? Trophy wives don’t exist? Yeah, no. I don’t buy it. When I worked at Lockheed Martin, virtually ALL the executives ditched their starter wives for young hot wives, and these were drawn usually from the executive secretarial pool, which was largely recruited for their looks and figures from lower ranks. I saw it happen myself. It was pretty shameless. And in general, the tie in between looks and money is a very strong one, for both sexes. I don’t think anyone can deny that. I think it’s so strong, that it may be a huge blessing to be average looking and broke. That way you’re free to look for a good spouse instead of merely a face-date.

    If you have any question as to why our country is so f**ked up, just try to read this. I could only get to #7 before I started retching. 😯

    • Wow. That’s a pretty comprehensive list. I got through the whole thing, but now I need to drink heavily, even though that literally violates rule #fifty-something.

      Did I understand it right that one rule says a woman is always right when she nags you, but another one says you should never nag a woman? Just making sure I got that right. LOL.
