    Dem Lawmaker: Stop Your Whining About Cancelled Insurance Plans
    Today House Democrat Anna Eshoo (D., Calif.) said Republicans should stop “whining” about cancelled insurance plans due to Obamacare.
    “This committee is too important to be taking up what “The Wniners” did on Saturday Night Live years ago.”
    Wait until November,crone.

      Let’s take away all the freebies Congress gets (and the WH too), including healthcare. Then we’ll see them change their attitudes. We cannot expect fair representation from these “entitled” bastards. Time to bring them back to reality.

        Pay ’em $10/day and allow them $25k and 60 days to run for reelection and see how fast the rats scurry. F*@k ’em. 👿

    Maybe having cosmetic surgery and having a famous last name will get you a gig on MSDNC,but it helps if you can read a teleprompter.

    Angel really is a good guy! 😀 *swoons*

    Ok, well, I guess time will tell on this one, but re-tweeting Ted Nugent and the Blaze is promising. 🙂

  4. Old Fisherman’s Grotto in Monterrey bans kids.
    I support their right to do whatever they want. Just like that bar on the east coast that had a sign saying “No Irish Drunks.” I think both are kinda stupid, though.

    • barnslayer says:

      Makes sense to me. Too many parents (at least around here) think their noisy kids are a blessing for all to enjoy. Either that or they’ve self-medicated and no linger hear it. I won’t go to ChuckECheese and I wouldn’t go to a cigar bar. Old farts like peace and quiet. No to find a place with a built in Faraday cage so we don’t hear cell phone loudmouths.

      • Everybody’s got some kinda noise they don’t like. Loud, drunk 20-somethings drive me nuts. For some reason, crying babies don’t bother me. It still seems a healthy, normal noise. But nobody likes bratty 4-year-olds, I guess. Still, I sympathize with the parents, and I feel more relief (that I’m past that) than annoyance, usually.

        • barnslayer says:

          Don’t get me wrong. I’m just as intolerant of the noisy 20-30 yr olds. (Oddly, I have no problem with barking dogs). The rare times me and Mrs. Barnslayer go to a restaurant it’s too late for lunch and too early for the early bird special crowd. Same thing with movie theaters. The more empty the better. I guess I’m just not a socialist.

  5. This has been making the rounds. Pretty funny anti-liberal rant by Evan Sayet. Hat tip to iOTW and Knuckledraggin’.

  6. Mental Illness. We’ve all been there.

    DUDE! Ed Schultz opposes executive order on immigration “I don’t think one man should have that much power”
    Ok I totally didn’t see this coming, but it makes sense considering Ed Schultz’s ties to the Unions. Yesterday on his show he came out against an executive order granting work visas to millions of illegals. Among other things, Schultz argues that one man shouldn’t have that much power.

    I almost dropped my coffee cup.Special Ed finally said something that made sense.What’s the world coming to?

    HULA SKIRTS FOR JULIO: Illegals Dropped Off In Hawaii, Aloha
    This report says we’ve only sent 8 so far.We still have plenty to spare.Do y’all still make human sacrifices to the volcano gods?Just askin’.

    Wisconsin Supreme Court upholds 2011 union law
    The fight over Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s signature policy achievement, a law effectively ending collective bargaining for most public employees, ended Thursday with the state Supreme Court declaring it to be constitutional.
    He’s saved the citizens of Wisconsin billions in property tax which he has rebated to them.Unions still haven’t gotten over it.

    Head of the Harvard Law Review,constitutional scholar and amateur golfer:
    Obama Phones It In In Message To Conservatives: Come On, Stop Hatin!

    Today is not only Harry Potter’s birthday, it’s also the Feast of St. Ignatius of Loyola, who is one of my many patrons (because seriously, I need all the help I can get).

    In recognition of this day, here’s a great post that was shared with me on facebook:
