***Up at 4:00 a.m. on a Saturday? I usually give myself a break on Saturday, but we're having a herd of people over so I gotta get started early. Emily & Peter are here and Johnny's home too - I love it! We played Cranium last night and had a ball!

***NBC's shameful editing of the Zimmerman tape - this really is despicable.

***Bet The One wishes he hadn't said this - not that he doesn't believe it, he just would rather we didn't know he believes it.

Here’s one line that President Barack Obama might want to rewind: “Under my plan … electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.”
That quip from a January 2008 interview with the San Francisco Chronicle editorial board is making the rounds in conservative circles — even Mitt Romney referred to it last month – and it likely won’t go away anytime soon.
“If somebody wants to build a coal-fired power plant, they can. It’s just that it will bankrupt them,” Obama said, responding to a question about his cap-and-trade plan. He later added, “Under my plan … electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.”

That's who he is, people.

***Marion Berry: Racist. Imagine if this were a Republican talking. 

Marion Barry’s mouth set him up. The disgraced former mayor of Washington, D.C., caught on tape in a 1990 crack cocaine sting, made an even bigger disgrace of himself and his city on Tuesday. Celebrating a Democratic primary victory, the city councilman attacked small businesses owned by “Asians” in his district. Then the race-baiting clown doubled down.
Barry told supporters in D.C.’s Ward 8: “We got to do something about these Asians coming in and opening up businesses and dirty shops. They ought to go.” Once pushed out, Barry, promised, he would replace the foreign invaders with “African-American business people.” Barry then took to social networking platform Twitter to expound on the perils of “dirty” Asian shops in his neighborhood.

***More Media Matters fake Rush protesting. These guys really are shameless.

***                                          What? You got a problem?

***Tim Tebow to speak at a Georgetown church on Easter. I'd like to hear that.

***Thomas Kinkade, RIP.  He was only 54. I've always liked his work.

***Liberals again try to ban toys in Happy Meals. What a bunch of losers. Fortunately, this case was thrown out. Apparently there are still some judges with a little sense.

***I don't think he's too thrilled about the Easter Bunny...

***We're just too stupid to understand our brilliant president! Thank you for the clarification, Jay Carney - you buffoon.

How stupid of us.  Obama’s propaganda minister Jay Carney has not told us what OUR problem was with Obama’s statement earlier this week that it was “unprecedented” for the Supreme Court, “an unelected group of people,” to overturn an act passed by a “strong majority” of the congress.  Now we know, thanks to Minister Carney, that Obama was talking in some short of a “legal shorthand” that is only clearly understandable to law professors such as himself.  In other words --- the rest of us were just too stupid to understand what Obama was really saying, and we should all be so very ashamed.

***8 Ingenious Cooking Gadgets.

This old farmer had a mule that fell into the farmer's well. The water wasn't very deep, so the mule was able to stand on the bottom. After assessing the situation the farmer sympathized with the mule but decided that neither the mule nor the well was worth saving. The farmer called his neighbors together and told them what had happened and enlisted them to help haul dirt to bury the old mule in the well and put him out of his misery. Initially the mule was hysterical, but as the farmer and his neighbors continued to shovel dirt on his back a thought struck him. It dawned on the mule that every time a shovel load of dirt landed on his back he would shake it off and step up. This he did, blow after blow of dirt hitting his back. Shake it off and step up...Shake it off and step up... Shake it off and step up. The mule repeated this statement over and over to encourage himself no matter how painful the blows or distressing the situation seemed, the old mule fought panic and just kept on shaking it off and stepping up. It wasn't long before the old mule, battered and exhausted, stepped over the wall of the well. What had seemed would bury him actually saved him because of the manner in which he handled his adversity.

The moral of the story: That's life. If we face our problems and respond to them positively and refuse to give in to panic, bitterness or self-pity...the adversities that come along to bury us often have within them the very real potential to benefit us.


***Have a great day!
