What do you guys think about Chris Christie?It seems that the media loves him right now and is almost preparing his 2016 run for President. I don't believe the media likes us or our positions. They…Continue

Best person to watch after Huckabee's withdrawal?

I was a strong supporter of Huckabee, so it was upsetting that he decided to pull out of the presidential race. Out of the current candidates I see right now I am probably going to be paying a good…Continue

I did it!

And you're all getting two Walts for the price of one 'cause it won't let me delete one. I'll try again later.

Walt Kowalski.

The grumpy old man from Gran Torino. That's who I found myself thinking of this morning even with all the madness going on in the world. Or maybe because of it. I confess that the first time I saw the movie I didn't like it. It was way too cynical, I thought. But it'd be on TV occasionally and I'd find myself watching parts of it, repeatedly. It grew on me over time. Walt grew on me. And I started to see what Walt saw, in his family, and why he dismissed them. Because they were a bunch of materialistic, unfeeling, narcissistic ingrates, that's why.

Anyway, I think I brought him up because I'm more and more understanding why the guy was so grumpy. I'm not ready to be that, but who knows, maybe 20 years from now, if I'm still around, I just might be. I'm sure that by then I will have earned it.

I wanted to have some Halloween fun so I thought I'd put on a costume until All Hallow's Eve. No, not Walt, lol. He's not quite pretty enough.

No, not this guy either.

Happy Halloween!

Comment by Margie yesterday

I'm sorry to say it, but it looks like we've jumped-the-shark with this one. The Potty-Mouthed Princesses for Feminism video. I heard about this yesterday on The Five. They showed a clip, but I didn't watch the video in its entirety until just a few minutes ago. I was angry when I heard about it yesterday. And when I watched it a while ago I felt that anger welling up in me again. And then when it was over, I was overcome with sadness. I'm not sure where we, that is society, goes from here. If you haven't seen it yet, you probably should. I guess. Here's the link.

NSFW.

Or you could just skip it altogether and listen to the song that came to mind after watching it.

The Day the Music died.

Let's see... Wendy Davis is running a reprehensible ad campaign against her disabled opponent, Al Gore is out there doing whatever it is that Al Gore does best, and Democrats are blaming Republicans for Ebola.

The Party that trolls together, stays together?? Yup, looks like business as usual for the other party.

In other words...

La de da de de, la de da de da....

I read the article that Pale Horse posted in GD today:

President Obama and his administration go to great lengths to appear relevant to young voters, and it looks like a new social media campaign geared toward Millennials is about to bust out a secret weapon: the emoji.

Yes, Obama is going to start using emojis in tweets and other social media posts to reach the coveted 18-25 year-old demographic. The cheese factor on this is so high it’s actually making me queasy.

 

I have to admit it's making me a little queasy, too. Will the madness ever end?! Nevermind, I know the answer.

Anyway, would I be going out-on-a-limb to say that the old man known as "Old Man" was Ezekiel Emanuel's least favorite character? Well, I'm saying it.

Yeah, him. The sweet, old man with the cats.

And while I'm on the subject of Logan's Run. A little fun.

Umm...somebody...anybody...help."

Did you all hear that Ezekiel Emanuel (that other guy's brother) wants to drop dead at 75? It's true. You'd think that one of the chief architects of Obamacare would be more responsible than that, but no, he says:

“I think this manic desperation to endlessly extend life is misguided and potentially destructive,” Emanuel writes. “For many reasons, 75 is a pretty good age to aim to stop.”

Not to mention expensive now that the government is footing the bill.

What are we supposed to take from this? I have a pretty good idea of where it's headed, but it's too depressing to think about. I did hear an interesting rumor though. Apparently, Ezekiel is looking for an event planner to plan "the Big 75". He's getting an early start due to the magnitude. Supposedly it's going to be a grand shindig, the likes of which hasn't been seen, the shindig to end all shindigs. Quite literally. I hear they're planning on having a lovely carrousel, too. It was inspired by Ezekiel's favorite movie scene.  

"Renew Ezekiel renew!"

This just out. Bill De Blasio caused the death of "Chuck" the groundhog when he dropped him last February during the annual ceremony. 

"Chuck" who, apparently, was in actuality Charlotte died a week after the incident of "internal injuries". I like traditions such as these. I think they're important to us as a people, but what's with those ridiculous oversized gloves! Was he afraid of being bitten like Bloomberg before him? Or was it that they had to be big enough for the purposes of advertising? How tacky, either way! And now that poor little Charlotte is gone.

In remembrance of 9/11. The day we were attacked by Islamic extremist terrorists bent on our destruction.

Fraternal orders for young men?

Hello, I am recently returning to these forums after a couple of years with a new-found interest in old world traditions and community building.I want to combine these two interests by forming a fraternal order for young men to be part of a positive group. Because most young men don't have a lot of disposable income the idea would be to facilitate their practical, rather than financial, contributions to their communities.  We would try out and practice old world skills such as blacksmithing,…See More
