Blah

***Ever have one of those days where you're not really sick, but you don't feel good and wish you could just go to bed? That's me today - probably because of the extra stressful week I've had. No signs of it letting up any time soon, so I guess I'll just pull up my big girl panties and stay at it.

***Rand Paul: "Democrats should be embarrassed to be seen with Bill Clinton." Heck yes, and I could enter quite a few other names in there, too. However, they're proud of him! Oh, they think he's the greatest thing since sliced bread. When I hear someone reminiscing about how wonderful things were with Clinton, I want to stuff a blue dress in their mouth.

***This is just *wrong*. NFL threatens to pull Super Bowl from Arizona if Jan Brewer signs The Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Heck, it wouldn't bother me to boycott the NFL, they're turning into wusses anyway, afraid to get their heads bumped and all.


Opponents of the bill contend that it will allow Arizona businesses to refuse service to homosexual customers.
But, as with most bills in Congress, the attack ads have little to do with the actual legislation.

Pretty much sums up how liberals operate. Most of what they're saying has nothing to do with the actual bill.

***Muslim terrorists murder 59 children in Nigeria. The "Religion of Peace" at it again.

Stories like this happen all the time, and we can’t begin to note all of them. Still, the murder of 59 boys, either shot or burned to death, deserves mention. Terrorists from Boko Haram–which means “Western education is sinful”–attacked a school in northeast Nigeria. Attacking schools and murdering students is a favorite tactic of Boko Haram, which is trying to force Nigeria to institute Sharia law:
Gunmen from Islamist group Boko Haram shot or burned to death 59 pupils in a boarding school in northeast Nigeria overnight, a hospital official and security forces said on Tuesday. …
“Fresh bodies have been brought in. More bodies were discovered in the bush after the students who had escaped with bullet wounds died from their injuries,” [Bala Ajiya] said.
Rafai, who had given an earlier estimate of 29 killed, said all those killed were boys. He said the school’s 24 buildings, including staff quarters, were completely burned to the ground.

Savages.

***This is sad. Did you see this fall? It was awful. I hope she recovers.

Olympic skicross racer Maria Komissarova of Russia remains confident of walking again despite having no feeling in her legs.
Komissarova writes on Instagram, ''I don't feel my body below my navel. But I am strong and I know that I'll be able to stand on my legs again some day.''
The 23-year-old Komissarova remains in a Munich rehabilitation center after breaking her spine at the Sochi Winter Games. She will remain there for at least three months, a spokesman for the Russian freestyle ski federation told the Interfax news agency.

***Well, I haven't noticed THIS: After 50, growing a nest egg gets easier.

***From A Gift of Inspiration:

A special place

There is a special place in life, that needs my humble skill,
a certain job I'm meant to do, which no one else can fulfil.
The time will be demanding and the pay is not too good
and yet I wouldn't change it for a moment - even if I could.
There is a special place in life, a goal I must attain,
a dream that I must follow, because I won't be back again.
There is a mark that I must leave, however small it seems to be,
a legacy of love for those who follow after me.
There is a special place in life, that only I may share,
a little path that bears my name, awaiting me somewhere.
There is a hand that I must hold, a word that I must say,
a smile that I must give for there are tears to blow away.
There is a special place in life that I was meant to fill,
a sunny spot where flowers grow upon a windy hill.
There's always a tomorrow and the best is yet to be,
and somewhere in this world, I know there is a place for me.

***The Obama Administration puts the fate of animals above that of humans. This is sickening, but typical of liberals.
In one of Alaska's most remote outposts, where a thousand hardy souls make their homes, the Obama administration has put the fate of birds and bears above the lives of people, blocking construction of an 11-mile gravel trail connecting a tiny fishing hamlet to a life-saving airport.
For more than three decades the predominantly Aleut fishing community of King Cove has been fighting to build a one-lane,gravel track connecting the Cove to the nearby hamlet of Cold Bay. What they have gotten is 30 years of flat-out federal refusals or stall tactics.
Cove residents say a road is necessary so they can reach an all-weather airport in Cold Bay that will transport them to Anchorage, about 625 miles away, for medical treatment. They say that in emergency situations, it's a matter of life and death.
Late last year, though, the Department of Interior announced it was rejecting plans for a proposed land swap that would allow the road to be built. The Dec. 23 decision cited the negative environmental impact on grizzly bears, caribou and water fowl like the Pacific black brant.

I'm speechless.
