  1. Ah, Double Arch!

    A tidbit from history to brighten your morning:

    Bunga, bunga!

    • Great hoax. I’m pretty sure they’d be in jail for something these days.

      The Montreal hoax from the comments was pretty funny, too.
      “Until now, the best I’d heard of was here about forty-five years ago. The Canadian football championship game alternated annually between Toronto and Vancouver, with week-long festivities leading up to the game. The most rabid fans came from Saskatchewan, also known for its rural cowboy culture. Saskatchewan was in the game that year and a group of students from Montreal arranged secretly to pick-up horses and cowboy clothes on the west side of Toronto and then ride downtown with great fanfare and actually into the lobby of the best-known hotel, claiming they had ridden all the way from Saskatchewn ( about1,500 miles) for the party and game. Only to be told, of course, that the game that year was in Vancouver, 1500 miles in the other direction. The media bought the whole country rube schtick and they managed to be front page fare until they fessed up after a couple of days.”

    I happened to catch this live last night. Congressman Gowdy explains **spoliation of evidence** to IRS commish, who happens to be a “trained lawyer”.

  4. Pistol Pete says:

    Senator Thad Cochran’s campaign illegally rallies black Democrat voters to his cause. It is illegal to encourage someone to vote for someone in the primary who they do not intend to vote for in the general.

    This has been going on in Mississippi as Sad Thad Cochran desperately tries to hang on to his seat.

  5. What a friggin’ Weasel. Hickenlooper “would sign magazine ban again.” Idiot.

    This, boys and girls is one good reason that Facebook probably shouldn’t exist. Along with that, why others shouldn’t be allowed to access the internet from their parent’s basement. 🙄

  9. Salon warns its readers that Pope Francis is just an old-school conservative. If even these idiots recognize that, then why are conservatives still hand-wringing about what a “liberal” he is?

    And while we’re linking to the liberal bastion Salon, meet the Wicked Witch of the Atheists, Ann Druyan, Sagan’s last wife and the “genius” behind Cosmos. I use that term very loosely. She’s a arrogant, bitter, old, pot-smoking, godless hag with an IQ in the low 60s. Did I mention I despise her friggin’ guts? 🙂

    • Grunt, where do you come up with this stuff??? Good grief `Anna March, who is an athiest who may just hate Catholicism (found out her boyfriend’s mother was busy dancing with an archbishop when she was trying to get ahold of her after they had gotten into an accident from an alcholic seizure by the boyfriend [who later committed suicide]), what the heck does she know about this pope or any other one?? And why does she even have this podium in the first place?? oh that’s right, we just gave it to her! 😦

    This is a subject that should not be touched. bHo just had to stir the hornets nest. I swear its on purpose. He is sowing discord everywhere he goes in the nation.

    Interior Department receives a resounding “no” to federal recognition of Native Hawaiians.

    • That is certainly a sore subject, and I’m not sure what should be done about it, but it does seem that Barack is wreaking havoc on everything he touches. It’s happening in my state with the FedGov set-asides, and it’s definitely happening in Hawaii with the sovereign HI movement.
