And They're Off!

***Mom & I went to the mall for a little while today. It really wasn't too bad. I had a particular item in mind, and she did a little shopping at Penney's. We avoided Wal-Mart, The parking lots at Menard's and Kohl's were absolutely full. I do most of my shopping online, but what I was looking for was 40% off so it was worth the traffic and hustle & bustle. Got that accomplished, and when I got home I got all my fall decorations down. The place looks naked! We're going to get our tree Sunday, doesn't seem possible it's time for the Christmas tree! I should be out putting my outside lights up because it's not too cold, but I want to get some more transcription done today. With a little luck it'll be nice tomorrow and I can get them up.

***Only 27% of working class whites support Obama. Well, of course it's because we're all racists, right?

***Media ignores lousy jobs report.

***Early casualty of Obama amnesty: Tax breaks for working Americans.  Never hear the "mainstream media" talk about stuff like this, do you? The "party of the little guy" is anything but.

Way to go, fella.

***McDonald's in a church? People, if you have to do that to get people to come to your church, you need a new preacher.

As church attendance falls, one group believes that the lure of a burger and fries might make church more appealing.
McMass Project, which is the brainchild of Paul Di Lucca -- a creative director at the church branding agency Lux Dei Design -- is raising funds to put a McDonald's franchise inside a place of worship.
"Christianity is unable to capture modern audiences," Di Lucca told NBC News.  "There's a lack of innovation and lack of design thinking in Church communities."
The multi-denominational group has launched a campaign on the crowdfunding site IndieGoGo and hopes to raise $1 million to build the first McDonald's church.  As of Friday, only $104 has been raised.

That must be the dumbest idea I've ever heard.

***Prisoners get millions is bogus IRS refunds. These are the people who will be enforcing Obamacare. If that doesn't keep you up at night, I don't know what will. They are incompetence personified. Unless, of course, they're harassing conservatives. They're pretty darn good at that.

The Song of Mr. Toad
by Kenneth Grahame

The world has held great Heroes,
As history-books have showed;
But never a name to go down to fame
Compared with that of Toad

The clever men at Oxford
Know all that there is to be knowed.
But they none of them knew one half as much
As intelligent Mr Toad!

The animals sat in the Ark and cried,
Their tears in torrents flowed.
Who was it said, “There’s land ahead?”
Encouraging Mr Toad!

The Army all saluted
As they marched along the road.
Was it the King? Or Kitchener?
No. It was Mr Toad!

The Queen and her Ladies-in-waiting
Sat at the window and sewed.
She cried, “Look! who’s that handsome man?”
They answered, “Mr Toad.”
