Hiatus for now


Nothing contagious, but I've been exhausted. Barely able to stay awake.

Mrs. AOW will be picking up the antibiotic medicine tomorrow.

Idiocy is forever

I thought all along that all the recent political scandals that so many blogs have covered would make no difference to those who think that Obama is oh so wonderful! So far, liberals have proved me correct! They claim that he didn't know, and so does that Press Secretary Jay Carney.

Memorial Day

Memorial Day is about our fallen heroes - not about barbecues and picnics and shopping bargains.

Observe the day with at least a few minutes of how the day should be observed!

The perfect graphic!

Mrs. AOW found this, and I just had to put it here on my blog:

If these leaders really didn't know what was going on right under their noses, then the best I can say is, "They're unfit to govern."

3. What was the top speed of the first police car in the U.S., introduced on the streets of Akron, Ohio, in 1899?

Has he even seen the movie?

Joe Biden:
…Biden talked about his work in Congress on the Violence Against Women Act when he brought up the Deliverance reference.

“After those guys tied that one guy to the tree and raped him, man-raped him in the film, why didn’t the guy go the sheriff?” Biden asked. “They don’t want to get raped again by the system.”
Nothing like using a reference that makes no sense! Brain damage?

Was there even a woman in the movie Deliverance? Not out on the river, that's for sure!

And get this, Joe! Justice and survival were guaranteed by the gun in Deliverance.

Time for humor

A Muslim burglar broke into a Christian home one night. He shone his flashlight around, looking for valuables, and when he picked up a CD player to place in his sack, a strange, disembodied voice echoed from the dark saying "Jesus is watching you." He nearly jumped out of his robe, clicked his flashlight out and froze.

When he heard nothing more after a bit, he shook his head, clicked the light back on and began searching for more valuables. Just as he pulled the stereo out so he could disconnect the wires, clear as a bell he heard, "Jesus is watching you." Frightened, the burglar shone his light around frantically, looking for the source of the voice. Finally, in the corner of the room, his flashlight beam came to rest on a parrot.

"Did you say that?" he hissed at the parrot.

"Yep," the parrot confessed, then squawked, "I am just trying to warn you."

The muslim relaxed. "Warn me, huh? Who among the Jinn of the underworld are you?"

"Moses," replied the bird.

"Moses?" the Muslim laughed. "What kind of stupid infidel would name a parrot Moses?"

"Probably the same kind of infidel that would name their Rottweiller Jesus," the bird answered.
