    Reading this cartoon and ROFLMFAO!!!!!

    Oh, that’s good.

    Gotta say, I’m so glad those days of ego stroking are behind me…

    And dontchya know, The Donald would be just like that.

      Whenever I hear Donald Trump brag on incessantly about how much money he has; I always think about that old saying :

      men usually lie about two things – how much money they have and their sex life.

      So, seeing this cartoon this morning made me laugh…..

    Youngest and I took the oldest granddaughter to the egg hunt at the Ice Center on Saturday. They had a pretty good crowd there. Spent much of yesterday working, and then watched two movies I’d never had a chance to see: The Taming of the Shrew and The Prince of Tides. Topped the night off with three hours of Buffy.

        I think these Religious Right Republicans have one agenda – they want more babies born so that our country will have enough people to fight their upcoming desired holy war.

        I know that sounds sounds looney-tunes, but think about it from their narrow-version of the world. It’s that Us against Them mentality taking over.

        The only thing I can add to indy’s post is that these folks also want to have more babies born so that the donations can keep coming in to fund their causes.

    All is not well in China…..seems like China has a strike on their hands.

    Speaking of The Donald – look at his wife’s newest venture.

    BTW – I just called QVC and they confirmed my suspicion – this jewelry is made in China.

    But, but ……The Donald has gone on a public rant about how we need to stop buying things from China, we need to put a tariff on all Chinese made products and we need to start manufacturing products in the USA again.

    While I agree with The Donald on his lofty goals – I just wonder why he has not told his wife that it will look bad if her jewelry is made in China and he is ranting against China…

    Do you think the Republicans will even bother to find out – or care – that The Donald’s wife is hawking Chinese-made jewerlry?

    I suspect not – because the bottom line is MONEY. Everything else is not relevant to these folks.

    Last week it was reported that the GOP is going to spend $500,000 to have outside counsel defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).

    Well, today there seems to be a little problem in the selection of the lawfirm that was granted this holy privilege by the GOP Congressional leaders. It seems the lawfirm does not want this case – but the lawyer who was the choice to handle the case has resigned from his original lawfirm and has now joined another law firm – filled with old Bush supporters.

    Have we all been sufficiently been brought up to speed now?

    Bottom line – not all Washington lawfirms are the same – who knew? Or maybe the original lawfirm does not want on the end of a losing case as big as this one is?

      I have a suggestion for Republicans – rather than defending the DOMA – why don’t they just make a law wherein their fellow Republican males start honoring their wedding vows and stop tomcatting around?

      Wouldn’t that be a bigger boost to traditional marriage than to go ahead and push this DOMA thing?

        Yes, it would, but that proposed action would, imho, cost them, rather than gather them, votes.

      • indypendent

        You’re probably right. I figure that is why these preachers don’t push the ‘thou shalt not commit adultery’ commandment too hard – for the same reason.

        And in both scenarios – when the people leave, they take all that beautiful money with them.

    Well, color me shocked…. the Republicans (being driven by a story on Fox Nation) are demonizing Obama for not having an Easter Proclamation.

    Don’t look now elephant boys and girls – but George W. Bush ( the self-professing Compassionate Christian Conservative president) did not do such a proclamation either and GWB was there for 8 years!

    Do you think someone should tell these ill-informed folks? Nah, if these folks were capable of shame – Fox News network would have gone out of business long ago.

      This link is worth reading – Obama said plenty at the Easter Prayer Breakfast – but I guess that does not count.
