A Bad Day in Court

***The Obama Administration is not doing so well in its attempt to circumvent the Constitution and not enforce immigration law in Arizona. Note this incoherent response from the Solicitor General arguing before the Court:

JUSTICE KENNEDY: So you’re saying the government has a legitimate interest in not enforcing its laws?

GENERAL VERRILLI: No. We have a legitimate interest in enforcing the law, of course, but it needs to be — but these — this Court has said over and over again, has recognized that the — the balance of interest that has to be achieved in enforcing the — the immigration laws is exceedingly delicate and complex, and it involves consideration of foreign relations, it involves humanitarian concerns, and it also involves public order and public –

It's hard to defend the indefensible.

*** DDF (Dumb Democrat Female) Debbie Wasserman Schultz's answer to why the Senate hasn't passed a budget for a thousand days plus three months (in violation of Federal law, by the way):

DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was on Fox News last night, and Brett Baier asked her about the Dem-controlled Senate’s failure to pass a budget for a thousand days plus three months. The short answer from Wasserman Schultz was “because the Romney-Ryan budget is so horrifying we’re incapable of moving” (was Mitt elected President or to Congress and I missed it?).

Pathetic.

***Woman starved to death on "light" diet. This is sad, but really, how dumb can you get?

A Swiss woman starved to death after believing she could survive on light alone.
The woman embarked on the diet after watching the controversial 2010 documentary film "In the beginning there was light," newspaper Tages Anzeiger reported Wednesday.
The movie centers on Swiss chemistry doctor Michael Werner, 62, and 83-year-old Indian yogi Prahlad Jani, who both claimed to derive sustenance from spiritual means rather than the intake of food -- a concept also known as breatharianism.








Love this one! It's based on one of my favorite works of art:




***
A collector of rare books ran into an acquaintance who told him he had just thrown away an old Bible that he found in a dusty, old box. He happened to mention that Guten-somebody-or-other had printed it.

"Not Gutenberg?" Gasped the collector.

"Yes, that was it!""You idiot! You've thrown away one of the first books ever printed.

A copy recently sold at an auction for half a million dollars!"

"Oh, I don't think this book would have been worth anything close to that much," replied the man. "It was scribbled all over in the margins by some guy named Martin Luther."

***Speaking highly of your husband. This is so important. I cringe when I hear women talking negatively about their husbands, sometimes getting very mean and downright vulgar. This is the man you vowed to love, honor, and cherish. What I hear sometimes is anything but uplifting. We're not perfect either, ladies. Read the article.
