I would bet the writer has a Keurig. To be a liberal is to be a hypocrite. Al Gore will probably ban Keurigs from his private jet and his limo.
***Bergdahl desertion report held hostage. Yeah, as Glenn Reynolds says, pretty inconvenient after that Rose Garden photo op.
***Gallup CEO says Obama's unemployment numbers are a big lie. This is news?
Right now, we're hearing much celebrating from the media, the White House and Wall Street about how unemployment is "down" to 5.6%. The cheerleading for this number is deafening. The media loves a comeback story, the White House wants to score political points and Wall Street would like you to stay in the market.
None of them will tell you this: If you, a family member or anyone is unemployed and has subsequently given up on finding a job -- if you are so hopelessly out of work that you've stopped looking over the past four weeks -- the Department of Labor doesn't count you as unemployed. That's right. While you are as unemployed as one can possibly be, and tragically may never find work again, you are not counted in the figure we see relentlessly in the news -- currently 5.6%. Right now, as many as 30 million Americans are either out of work or severely underemployed. Trust me, the vast majority of them aren't throwing parties to toast "falling" unemployment.
Ever try to tell a liberal Obama sycophant anything like this? They do the equivalent of sticking their fingers in their ears and chanting "La La La!!" They absolutely will not hear the truth, it's really a waste of time to try. I've found that out in countless debates, but I keep going back and trying. :-)
***Workers trying to get rid of union after rigged vote. Unions are parasites, we're better off without them.
Workers in Alabama are staging a fourth attempt to kick the United Auto Workers (UAW) out of their plant following claims that stuffed ballot boxes derailed their last vote.
Employees at the NTN-Bower Corporation, a ball bearings manufacturer, have unsuccessfully tried to boot the labor giant out of their factory for two years.
Workers voted to decertify the UAW in an earlier election, but an Obama-appointed National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) panel threw out the election.
Another election was held in January of this year. The UAW prevailed, but it was later revealed that 148 ballots were cast—eight more than the entire workforce. Employees convinced the NLRB to throw out those results with the help of the National Right to Work Foundation.
Obama has to have his grubby hands in everything. Geez, I can't stand that weasel.
The Dragon of Grindly Grun
by Shel Silverstein
I'm the Dragon of Grindly Grun,
I breathe fire as hot as the sun.
When a knight comes to fight
I just toast him on sight,
Like a hot crispy cinnamon bun.
When I see a fair damsel go by,
I just sigh a fiery sigh,
And she'd baked like a 'tater-
I think of her later
With a romantic tear in my eye.
I'm the Dragon of Grindly Grun,
But my lunches aren't very much fun,
For I like my damsels medium rare,
and they always come out well done.

***25 Makers Who Are Reinventing the American Dream
Graham didn't found Dropbox, Airbnb, or Reddit, but all three companies are indebted to him. They are among the 630 startups the Silicon Valley guru has shepherded through his groundbreaking business-accelerator program. Twice a year Graham and his Y Combinator colleagues run a few dozen budding entrepreneurs through a high-stakes, 13-week boot camp. The hopefuls polish their business plans with A-list mentors before pitching them to a roomful of venture capitalists. Kids now drop out of Harvard and Stanford to participate in the program, and the federal government, universities, and thousands of business leaders worldwide have adopted Graham's idea.
"The opportunity for creative explorers has never been better," Bre Pettis likes to say. He is no doubt speaking from personal experience. The former Seattle art teacher emerged from a subculture of makers who began painstakingly building their own 3D printers in the early 2000s. He has since made the technology more accessible by creating a ready-to-use printer for everyone. The CEO unveiled the first MakerBot at the South by Southwest festival in 2009, using it to print plastic shot glasses for attendees. Today his printers are sophisticated enough to help NASA engineers build early-stage models, and simple enough to find a home in elementary schools.

That you have such a February face,
So full of frost, of storm and cloudiness?
