Mocking the Chin-Tuggers

***You know, Sarah Palin has a point here. First of all, I think there is a lot to dislike about Hillary  Clinton, and her health is the least of them. But...all these people tut-tutting about how awful right-wingers are to bring up her health, didn't seem to mind when their side was making fun of a boy with Down syndrome.

"Hey! Hillary’s brain is off-limits! Leave her health records alone!" Palin wrote in a Facebook post. "Democrats are right – scouring records of a female candidate is just politics of personal destruction, and for the media to engage in it would be unfair, unethical, and absolutely UNPRECEDENTED. You can’t probe a woman like that because, well, it’s a war on women!"
Palin linked to articles from Politico and Salon about rumors that circulated when she was running for vice president suggesting she wasn't the real mother of her youngest son Trig, who has down syndrome.
"Goodness, no one credible would print lies, continually harass a candidate’s doctor, disrupt local hospital staff, or even offer to pay locals to give 'quotes' about her health records to be included in a 'research book' by a public university professor (your tax dollars at work?) which the candidate’s attorney will need to respond to," Palin wrote.

Hard to argue with her.

***The Pentagon is actually thinking about allowing illegals to join our military. What could possibly go wrong? We have GOT to get these idiots out of power.

The Pentagon is weighing allowing some immigrants brought illegally to the country as youths to serve in the military, a unilateral step by the Obama administration as immigration legislation remains stalled in the Republican-led House.
The announcement came Tuesday as House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, defended his election-year decision to rebuff a narrow immigration measure pushed by a GOP congressman to achieve a similar goal.

***Howard Dean: "Republicans aren't American!" What a moron.

 A terrible sort of insanity has gripped the Democratic Party. On almost a daily basis, when you see the party’s leaders in action, you want to start edging toward the door, murmuring “Nice doggie. Nice doggie.” Today it was Howard Dean (filmed a week ago, but seen on YouTube today). He was addressing a Democratic crowd in Colorado, and went off on a tirade against Republicans. Yes, he really did say that Republicans aren’t American. And that they should stay away from the United States, and go to Russia where they belong. One gets the feeling that if the Democrats ever have the opportunity, they will have us all arrested. Or deported.

***Doesn't matter what the people want. If a liberal judge says it's to be, it will be. 

***Rides to go loopy for. Nope, some of these I ain't interested in. Give me the water park...

***Experts say these magic words will save your life.  
Here's an example:

“Some”

“Nothing’s going right! Everything is out of control!” Sound familiar? When you get stressed, it’s easy to slip into an all-or-nothing mentality. But that can just drag you down, Tamar Chansky, PhD, author of Freeing Yourself from Anxiety, told Woman’s Day magazine. A simple solution: Use the word some. In other words, “Some things are going right, some things aren’t.” Suddenly the glass is looking half-full.

***Another one bites the dust: Nevada abandons failed State Health Exchange.

Sonnet: I Thank You

By Henry Timrod
 
I thank you, kind and best beloved friend,
With the same thanks one murmurs to a sister,
When, for some gentle favor, he hath kissed her,
Less for the gifts than for the love you send,
Less for the flowers, than what the flowers convey;
If I, indeed, divine their meaning truly,
And not unto myself ascribe, unduly,
Things which you neither meant nor wished to say,
Oh! tell me, is the hope then all misplaced?
And am I flattered by my own affection?
But in your beauteous gift, methought I traced
Something above a short-lived predilection,
And which, for that I know no dearer name,
I designate as love, without love’s flame.

***To character and success, two things, contradictory as they may seem, must go together... humble dependence on God and manly reliance on self.  ~William Wordsworth
 
***Have a great day!
