Die like a prince or a pauper....

Lies of Obamacare

Tonight is Halloween -

The spooks and ghouls stay away from my neighborhood - we are too rural for that. Besides - you never know on these warm nights, unless you have a really good flashlight, if the snakes are out, too.

So here I sit - after dinner, with a few of the dogs - may download some photos. My grandchildren are being escorted through their neighborhood by their mother. Grandson is into Scooby Doo or Spiderman and granddaughter is a witch tonight.

Holly, my Australian Shepherd is in recovery and well on her way to being whole, if her femur on the hind leg stays in the socket. Her lacerations are healing but the one under her "arm" in what would correspond to our armpit, is healing from the inside finally. She is flushed twice daily. Penrose drain came out last week. I found her on the bed yesterday.

Holly is a blue merle, blue-eyed Australian Shepherd who was viciously attacked by my female German Shepherd three weeks ago. I don't know what sparked it, but I think it may have been something about the water hose. They both love it, and I had filled the waterer by the wellhouse. I left them alone - heck - I've kenneled them together, but when Holly didn't come in around 7 p.m. I looked for her under the tool shed. She didn't want to come out. But she managed, and could barely walk. Left leg rear was twisted grotesquely around her right rear just above her foot and the gashes on her front leg had stopped bleeding. When I discovered the gaping hole under her "arm" I could see into her body between ribs and skin. It was awful. I gave her something for pain and she was taken to the vet's first thing in the morning. The only ER vet we had was two hours away. She made it through the night (I slept next to her on the floor) and through the surgery. Holly is about 10.

Maya now wants to get her. And Holly is afraid. Separation is the best thing to do; Maya came as a rescue a year ago. She'd been to a few homes and the animal control shelter. I can't put her down. So there will have to be a muzzle on her at all times in the house when Holly is fully recovered.

She is also looking at the possibility of having more surgery. Ka-ching. The first was approximately $700. And while I am not arguing the price, although I don't think putting a leg back into the socket warrants that cost, I am very grateful to the doctor's skill, maybe he could've presented us with the alternative while she was out on the table. That is, removing the head of the femur and letting the ligaments and muscles take over. Had a cat hit by a car once, and he had to have that done. Never had a problem with his leg. So if it dislocates again, she will have to have that. Estimate to follow.

I'm just very happy to have her getting well. She isn't a kisser. But she kissed me the other day and again tonight. She is from working stock. She was also a rescue from a couple in Georgia who didn't realize the beautiful puppy needed a job, and thus she came to me in a prong collar and never went in a crate again.

Redstate is HOT tonight!

Some of Mike Pence's notes on Obamacare on Facebook

The Wolf and the Dog by Jean de La Fontaine, a fable

Does this sound familiar to anyone...the part about "being free", and being better than anything.

The Wolf And The Dog
Author: Jean de La Fontaine

A Wold was down to skin and bone
(The watch-dogs did their work so well).
He met a Mastiff, a tremendous swell,
Sleek, plump, and portly, straying all alone.
Here was a chance, to rend him limb from limb!
But no, he looked a nasty customer;
So with a smirk the Wolf makes up to him,
And compliments him on his corporation.
The Bandog said: 'It lies with you, fair Sir,
To be as fat as I am. Quit those woods,
Where you poor devils pig it in starvation -
Just fancy, no fixed meals, no fire, no bed,
A constant fight for daily bread!
Come on, I'll help you find a situation
Where you can have your share of this world's goods.
'Pray," asked the Wolf, 'what might the duties be?'
'Oh, just to chivy beggars,' answered he,
'And folk with crutches, suit the master's moods,
Make yourself pleasant to the family:
The wages - leavings of the choicest foods,
Chicken bones, pigeon bones, no lack,
And lots of scratching on the back.'
At such a prospect for his future years
The Wolf's eyes filled with wistful tears.
But as they went, he spied his friend's bald scruff.
'What's that?' he questioned him. ''Tis naught.'
'How, naught?' 'Well, nothing much.' 'But what?'
'The colar of my chain, 'tis like enough,
Has caused the trifling mark you see.'
'Your chain?' exclaimed the Wolf, 'then you're not free
To come and go?' 'Not always - but no matter."
'Indeed? It wouldn't do for me,'
Replied the starveling. 'You may be the fatter,
But I prefer my own sweet will
To all the riches of your platter.'
Therewith he ran: I guess he's running still.

I have two friends with lupus AND and one has a rare cancer of the blood, lupus and arthritis. Both are clean freaks and the latter has her premises sprayed regularly, for we live in the southern kingdom of bugs. Big bugs.

I remember using DEET sparingly when we lived in the Florida Keys. I never liked putting something on my body that killed another living thing so I resorted to long sleeves and pants.

Some people I knew there just slathered themselves with it.

I wonder if there will be long term consequences of it?

More on the Obamanation of Obamacare

From Mathew Staver of Liberty Foundation

Some of you might find this interesting. For Floridians reading this, you may want to contact our Senators. Give 'em hell. All of you reading this should give your Senators such cramps and heartburn...that they'll start listening, use this 19 pound document to light their holiday yule logs, and start all over. A health care plan should be what...20 pages of text that a high school student (functionally illiterate as most are from government public schools...and no more.

Mathew Staver, Founder and Chairman
Liberty Counsel

Nancy Pelosi's 400,000-word bill puts the preborn -
and pro-life Members of Congress - squarely in the
crosshairs. See below. - Mat

Nancy Pelosi finally unveiled her massive 19+ pound, nearly
2,000-page government takeover of healthcare. And she is
already pushing for a floor vote as soon as next week but
no later than Veteran's Day, Nov 11.

This bill is longer than Leo Tolstoy's ponderous book "War
and Peace"! It is five times longer than the Old Testament!
In short, it's a monstrosity. And most of it is written
in "legalese"!

The last bill from Pelosi was 1,000 pages. They didn't think
anyone would read it, but we did, so now she added another
1,000 pages! My staff is pouring through the text and I will
have a report for you as soon as possible.

Here's what we already know: Pelosi's bill includes the
"public option," government-run, taxpayer-funded abortions
and alarming new taxes. No wonder they've been hiding it!

On Page 110, lines 17-22, there is explicit authorization of
a new government health insurance program that commits federal
funds to pay for abortions!

So much for President Obama staring directly into the
camera and promising no federal funding of abortion!
And what about his promised "conscience clause"
protection for doctors and nurses?

We also expect Harry Reid's version of ObamaCare to emerge from
behind closed doors any day now, with pressure for a vote as
soon as possible. That means we could be facing TWO major votes
on ObamaCare within the next week to ten days!

++They've "Shown Us The Bill," but it's largely unreadable!

As you might expect from the Obama/Pelosi/Reid power axis,
Congress will now be RUSHED to approve bills that no staff
can be reasonably expected to digest in just a few days.
Lawmakers tell us it could take a week or more just to get
through the text, but Pelosi will be demanding passage by then!

When confronted with the bill's staggering length and complexity,
Democrats say Congress has already dealt with every part of the
bill! Well, maybe a FEW of them have - behind closed doors -
but nobody else has seen this radical manifesto! It is TWICE
as long as anything the committees spewed out!

+ + Pro-life Congressmen facing intense pressure

Thankfully, many courageous pro-life Democrats and a growing
number of moderates are speaking out against their leadership's
kamikaze plans. One Representative even said he was willing
to jeopardize his career to stand up for life. But the
pressure to fall into line next week will be immense!

That's why I'm asking for your help once again...
We cannot let political bullies like the
Obama/Pelosi/Reid machine trample on the pro-life and moderate
members of Congress! We need to embolden the Members of Congress
who are standing up to them!

That's why we've added key pro-life members and other moderates
to our "Fax Barrage."

Even if you have done so already, go here right now to schedule
your faxes and reach Senate leaders PLUS key pro-life members
of the House:

I am convinced that our carefully targeted Fax Barrage is
greatly adding to the resistance against the leadership's
arm-twisting. Together, we are making a real difference!

Between now and the time that votes are taken on these bills,
we must have THOUSANDS OF FAXES flooding the Senate and
House EVERY DAY. We must demand that Congress stop the
bullying to silence the voices of pro-life Representatives!
Then, we need to make it clear that we will not accept ANY
bill that funds abortions, limits our rights or imposes new
taxes and burdens on the American people.

Of course, if you prefer to send your own faxes, please go
here for fax numbers and sample texts for your faxes:

After you send your faxes, please call your Representative
and your two Senators. Here is their contact information:

Rep. Boyd 202-225-5235

Sen. Nelson 202-224-5274

Sen. LeMieux 202-224-3041

Pelosi's 2,000-page monstrosity has been unveiled. She has
promised to push this for a vote within a matter of days.
Please continue to stand until the battle is over!

God bless you,

Mathew Staver, Founder and Chairman
Liberty Counsel

P.S. I know this has been a long battle, but we simply can not
become "weary in well doing." Too much is at stake! For some,
this will be the second, third, fourth or even a greater number
of times to "stand in the gap."
Publish Post
But we can not let up - I
assure you the other side is mustering all of their strength
to PUSH this monstrous government takeover of healthcare through!
THANK YOU for your perseverance and God bless you!


n November of 2010 the entire House of Representatives will have to stand for re-election; all 435 of them.
One third of the Senate, a total of 33 of them, will also stand for re-election.
Vote every incumbent out. And I mean every one of them. No matter their Party affiliation. Let's start all over in the House of Representatives with 435 people who have absolutely no experience in running that body, with no political favors owed to anyone but their own constituents. Let's make them understand that they work for us. They are answerable to us and they simply have to run that body with some common sense.
Two years later, in 2012, vote the next third of the incumbents in the Senate out. You'll know who they are because their names will be on the ballot and, in most cases, will be shown as the Incumbent.
We, the People, have got to take this Country back and we HAVE to do it peacefully. That's what the Framers of our Constitution envisioned. Please, if you love this Country, send this (as I have done) to absolutely everyone whose email address appears in your address book. This thing can permeate this Country in no time. Let's make it happen.
The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who are not. -

Pelosi's 1,900 page Obamacare bill - read it here and visit Grassfire

>From the Desk of:
Steve Elliott, President, Alliance


Nancy Pelosi just proudly announced the formal release of
the House version of the back-room health care reform bill...

...all 1,990 pages of it!

The bill includes everything Obama and the Democrats have
been pushing for... a public option that will destroy private
choice; the unconstitutional individual mandate; the
punitive employer mandate; draconian cuts in Medicare;
and massive tax increases.

Pelosi also started the "countdown clock" to a House floor
vote now slated for NEXT WEEK.

Go here to download the entire 1,990-page bill:

+ + Have your message hand-delivered to Congress

We now have just a few days to get our message through loud
and clear. That's why I'm thrilled to report that, as I write,
tens of thousands of personal letters from Grassfire team
members are being hand-delivered to key Congressional offices.
Thousands more are already slated for tomorrow's delivery.

In fact...

If you schedule your hand-delivery any time today,
your letters will be hand-delivered on the next
business day.

In other words, take five minutes to schedule your letters
TODAY and they will be delivered TOMORROW (or the
next day Congress is open for business). If you haven't
done so already, go here to schedule your letters
to be hand-delivered:

+ + Also... call your Senators and Rep

In addition please also call your two Senators and your Representative.

If they do not receive hand-delivered letters and calls and
other communications from constituents, they will assume
you support ObamaCare!

For Florida: But use the toll free number 1-877-851-6437

Sen. Nelson 202-224-5274

Sen. LeMieux 202-224-3041

Rep. Boyd 202-225-5235

Or, call the switchboard and ask for your member of Congress:
202-224-3121. Be sure to tell your Senators and Representative
that you live in their state or district.

Again, Pelosi just dropped her health takeover bombshell and started
the countdown to a vote NEXT WEEK.

Thank you for taking action.

Winchester ammo contract with Department of Homeland Security

I have a couple of questions:

1. Why does Homeland Security need 200 million rounds of .40 S&W ammunition over five years (when's Obama's term over and how many are employed in the Department of Homeland Security), and

2. Why isn't the Department of Defense sending ammunition to our troops in Afghanistan, whom we have learned of late, are having trouble with weapons that jam and a lack of ammunition?

Someone tell me the answer to this, please.

Ocala, FL! You have a choice on Nov. 17 runoff - Suzy Heinbockel! Hooray for Suzy!

Suzy Heinbockel in Nov 17 Runoff

October 28, 2009

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Ocala voters gave Suzy Heinbockel a second place victory in the City Council election. Heinbockel was running for Ocala City Council, District 1. Her victory qualifies her for a run-off election on November 17th.

Heinbockel has been a long time supporter of the Liberty movement in Florida. "I don't believe that our resolution from this economic crisis is going to come from government," Heinbockel says. "It's government's role to get out of the way, to make it easy for people to start businesses, and clear the path to level the playing field so people can work and grow their businesses without interference."

Suzy Heinbockel was a leader during the Ron Paul Presidential Campaign and, along with her husband, John, helped to sponsor the Florida Liberty Summit. She was chosen as one of the first Regional Coordinators for Florida Campaign for Liberty, but resigned the position in order to run for Ocala City Council, District 1.

Heinbockel’s opponent is 72 year old Mike Finn, a Planning and Zoning Board member for 17 years and a city councilman for 16 years, who is trying to come back from retirement after having left office in 2001.

When asked about her chances on November 17th, Heinbockel said, “I came in second by only 163 votes, so this is a very winnable race. Because the turnout will be very low, we have to make sure our people get out and vote. We need more volunteers to help make phone calls. And we need more donations for absentee ballot mailing.”

For more information about Heinbockel, visit her website, You can also view links to her news articles on Facebook.

Campaign for Liberty is a 501(c) 4 lobbying organization which neither supports nor opposes candidates for public office. From time to time we will report on races of interest.

Big Agra: Prosecute undercover animal activists

This is big news. You may not agree with the process of going undercover with a video camera, but then how will we see what goes on in factory farming and related industries, where food and other animals are raised, horribly mistreated, slaughtered, and brought into OUR food chainin filth and improper methods of preparation. This is called transparency, and something the Obama administration promised in all things.

These videos you see issued from PETA and other sources on the hideous practices of animal handling - from the skinning alive of fur animals in China, the horrible beating of dogs and cats for food in Korea so that the meat will be tender, the deplorable treatment of cattle and dairy cows, chickens and other food animals, horses in fear and pain to be slaughtered and sent abroad.
The list is endless. Apply it to puppy mills. Medical research laboratories.

I commend them.

These animals are what you put in your body. We have a right to know how they are transported, treated before death, how that death is administered, and when it arrives in neat, innocuous little plastic trays at your food store, the quality of the product.

The idea of compassionate care, high standards of care and cleanliness are not four letter words.

Here's a PETA video I just came across from South America, which produces most kosher meat.
It is quite horrific. This isn't ritual slaughter. No religion would sanction this unspeakable cruelty. Watch it if you dare.

Stealth agencies for gun control

A feel good video for animal lovers

I have been a volunteer wildlife rehabilitator, working for licensed rehabbers. My job was to raise squirrels, opossum and ravens in the desert. One of my fondest memories were taking two very young whitetail fawns whom I named Wind and Sky, siblings, and teach them to drink from a bottle. They were with me for two or three weeks.

When I took them to my rehabber, Betsy Knight, who runs the Big Bend Wildlife Sanctuary in Altha, FL, she was very careful not to "befriend" them. They would be weaned there with a minimum of human contact and later transferred to Tyndall Air Force Base to live in the forest and become game in deer season; sent off with prayers for their safety. That's all you can do.

When I see this, although I know it is not good for the deer to associate so closely with humans, it is a beautiful sight to me, and I wish I could do the same thing, while providing safe haven to them in hunting season.

But that would be in a perfect world.

It's like the fish I feed across the street. I can't fish for "my" fish. I don't do any fishing anyway. But if I did, I couldn't do it there. A few summers back, I watched one large bream who had lost an eye. I watched that fish for a year before it disappeared.

When I visited Montana this year, I wanted to visit a feed store and drop off salt licks on the prairie. But I know what would happen. It's like feeding game at a station to bring the subject in close so that they can be killed.

Two sides of a coin.

Campus violence prevention, disappearances and gun control

My friend and I were talking tonight about children disappearing from their homes, or from walking home from school or the bus stop and being murdered. There is a case coming up for trial where a 13 year-old was raped (the killer says it was consensual) and killed by a man in his late 30s. The public defender said there was no evidence of torture (is not the murder or the "killing" of a child - of anyone - the final torture?), and was having a tough time finding a jury. It was ludicrous. My thoughts on murdered children? When someone confesses, turn them over to the family to deal with him. Taxpayers will be spared the burden of room and board and appeals.

I don't think we think a whole lot about that happening to our young student who is now adult and going off to college. But it's happening more often.

It isn't unreasonable to give them lessons in self-defense or a firearms course and a weapon before you send them off to college. I would rather do that than send them off with no defenses, no confidence or resources to fend off an attacker or a kidnapper.

Re government's fiscal responsibility and its death.

Banks' ponzi scheme exposed -

From the Freedom and Liberty Tea Party group in MT

Subject: Our Constitution is Being Destroyed

Hello Patriots! Right now, in Washington DC, our elected officials are destroying the US Constitution on a daily basis and yet nothing is being done to stop them. Almost all recent legislation enacted by Congress is unconstitutional, flat and simple.

The US Constitution is a marvel, as it is a simple document that is not difficult to read or understand, yet contains the precise language that allowed the governing of our country for more than 200 years and enabled us to become the most prosperous free country in the world.

Why is it now that our elected officials have opted, without authority, to throw away the Constitution and make up their own rules for governing our country? Was there a recent Constitutional Convention that none of us are aware of? The sad and scary answer is that liberal elements in Congress, aligned with a liberal President, are purposefully destroying the Constitution and in doing so is endangering our freedom and liberty.

Where is the Constitutional authority for bank bailouts, auto company bailouts, mandated health insurance, cap & trade energy schemes? I have read the Constitution many, many times, yet have found no authority for any of these things.
When pushed up against the wall and asked this hard question, liberals in Congress promoting these agendas use the "general welfare clause" referred to in the preamble of the Constitution.

Anyone falling for this explanation is a victim of the "dumbing down" of America over the last few decades. The words in the preamble of the Constitution need to be re-visited occasionally, so here they are:

"We the People of these United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America".

Read the line "promote the general welfare", and then look at the definition of the word "promote". "Promote" is defined as "to contribute to the progress, development, or growth of; to further, or encourage". It does not mean to mandate or provide for. Our founding fathers knew the exact language they were using; look at the phrase in the preamble "provide for the common defence". They used the specific word "provide" because that was their intent- to provide for the common defence. "Provide means "to supply or furnish; set as a condition, or stipulate". That is why we have a federal military force, because the Constitution provides for it.

If our founding fathers had intended to "provide" for the general welfare, they would have used the precise language to make that provision. But they didn't- and no Constitutional amendment has either. The conclusion I come to is that Congress is acting outside of the Constitutional authority granted them when they enact such legislation. There is no other explanation. And by doing so they are endangering the security of another thing in the preamble, "the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity".

I don't want to ramble on, but in this current debate over government health care the simple answer seems to be that there is no Constitutional authority for it. We need to return our nation back to the Constitutional roots it was founded on, anything outside of that is detrimental to our country and it's future.

"The people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government and to reform, alter, or totally change the same when their protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness require it."
-Samuel Adams

"It does not take a majority to prevail ... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men." - Samuel Adams

God bless America, and may God save our great country.

Public Option ad nauseum -

Harry Reid is trying his best to secret the plans for the public option away from the public eye.

I am going to end this post and call his office (1-877851-6437) and leave a message, because it's 5 p.m. here and he's not there, for sure. God forbid they put in an 8 hour day.

Obama promised, and you can view the lies in the video below) transparency and a five day period where we can look at legislation.

You can be those lying asses won't tell us what's in this bill.

Why did we elect a thug from Chicago? It doesn't make sense.

I digress.

Time is running out. We need to flood the offices of the proponents of the bill and the White House line as well. Fax them, call or email them.

NO on the public option.

Senator Reid would better serve his constituents by opening up and operating another whorehouse in Searchlight, NV. He'd be good at that.

7 Lies in Two Minutes! El Presidente Obama - You LIE!


Read this Reuters article.

Bandwidth shortage? Oh, come on.

It's all about control of uncountable masses of people and what they choose to read and research, then pass on.

It is mind control.

It is evil.

It is Orwell's Big Brother who is watching me and you and your neighbor and your parents. It is truth and enlightened thought and hungy minds looking for what they need, not from the government or the state, but from the knowledge of others.

I hope that you will push back and resist.

The internet has become the collective brain of us - "We the People" - whether you live in Dakka, Yazoo City, St. Thomas, or Lake Eufala, Alabama. Do you get it? We have joined intellects and made friends, met lovers and spouses, long lost relatives and the world has become as small as a mouse click. We visit each other every day - sometimes all day. Words of encouragement, sympathy, love, joy, business, learning, information and empathy. And your government and mine want to stop this in order to shut this fantastic tool for good we have created.

The shock to me is still that my government in the land of the free (HAH!) which seems to be no more in this administration, will black us out eventually until they have control of minds and people so that it can work in darkness.

If you are an American and you are reading this, you have to agree after you read this.

Let me know what you're doing to tell your legislators NO!

WY Gov. Freudenthal follows Obama gun control lead

I just returned from a brief visit to Wyoming while staying in Montana. I question the mental state (as well as the oathkeeping ability) of a governor of such a safe, low crime state. How can you allow this, Wyoming?

Like Obamacare. They get the Cadillac health plan, we get marginal and minimal and get taxed.

Did you hear or read today that unions and government employees will get better than the Obamacare that we will get?

Over $3,000,000.00 for her staff? This may be a repetition of an earlier entry here, but in itself, as we face Obamacare and Cap and Trade, this is much like French royalty before the French Revolution, isn't it?

Let them eat cake?

There wasn't any at my table tonight.

Climate change bill and aviation

The Cap and Trade Bill analysis

This is a good breakdown of the cap and trade bill. I heard something on shortwave just now that sparked my interest. If we have animals, even pets, we will probably have to pay a tax on what it is, size, its carbon footprint, and you will pay accordingly.

The pet business, and especially our little carnivores who share our homes, may be limited.

If we have livestock - horses in the yard, goats, etc., are grain/grass eaters. It costs to produce their feed. What is their carbon footprint?

In one of the posts yesterday, I read where the prices of food will escalate so high, we will forego buying meat because of the carbon footprint.

We are under assault from every side.

Please fight back. Even by emails or a phone call to your legislators.

This is total robbery of the American people and those all over the world.

Two Wapo Must Reads on Obamacare

I heard from my friend, Mike (since high school) today that union and government workers are to get Cadillac Obamacare, but not we underlings -

I have to research that a bit. More later.

Another reminder from another source - it's the company you keep that tells everything...

Informative links from JPFO re BATFE and Foreign Governments

America's Aggressive Civil Rights Organization

October 26th 2009


If you read last week's alert about the national gun registry BATFE
is creating - - then
you will be extremely interested in the comments in this article - - by the Hillary
Clinton State Department. This can also be found archived on JPFO
- . Over thirty
foreign governments and thousands of police agencies can access the
BATFE registration records to find firearms owned by Americans
under the guise of tracing "crime guns".

The same data base could be most useful to an anti-gun
administration who asks for assistance from a foreign government to
confiscate your guns. The potential for misuse of the BATFE
database cannot be underestimated.

We are receiving information from those in the firearm industry
confirming that BATFE agents are removing 4473 firearm sales forms
from stores and holding them until they have completed copying all
data from the forms.

If you are not on board with JPFO to abolish BATFE then don't
complain when you get your door bashed down in the name of "public
safety". Discover more about BATFE -
and learn about the use of Nazi "Gun Control" laws to write
America's Gun Laws. Go also to "Gun Control": Gateway to Tyranny -

What you were never told about vaccines...This is very frightening

Covertress is exceptional tonight - read especially about India and China pulling out of Copenhagen.

Revival of the Gold Rush in northern California

Our politicians busy at work!!
These are some of the guys that had no time to read the Stimulus Bill.
House Minority Leader Lawrence F. Cafero Jr., R-Norwalk, pictured standing, far right, speaks while colleagues Rep. Barbara Lambert, D-Milford and Rep. Jack F. Hennessy, D-Bridgeport, play solitaire Monday night as the House convened to vote on a new budget. (AP)

The guy sitting in the row in front of these two... he's on Facebook, and the guy behind Hennessy is checking out the baseball scores.

These are the folks that can't get the budget out by Oct. 1, Seriously!!!
So, we’ve got a 30 day budget extension. Well, guess what, 30 days from now we will be in the same boat. I guess this makes it easy for the news ‘reporters’ as all they have to do is recycle the same headlines from this week and from 2 years ago. And these yo-yo’s will still be playing SOLITAIRE!!!

Hat tip to my friend, Mike.
