….for Thanksgiving and the holiday season. You won’t see me anywhere near a store on Black Friday – I’ll be golfing in shorts and the Tommy Bahama Hawaiian shirt my lovely wife gave me for my birthday. It’s got a lot of fishes in a underwater seascape design – perfect for all the water I’ll be trying to negotiate my way around at Kokopelli Golf Club.

This still gives me goosebumps. Tracey’s still pi**ed because she was out of the room and missed it. Not unlike, BTW, the time we were at RFK Stadium in 1994 at a Pink Floyd “Division Bell Tour” concert (don’t ask why we were there!) and she was the only one in the stadium that didn’t scream out “AHHHHHHHHHH!” during Comfortably Numb at the line, “there’ll be no more ….but you may feel a little sick. She’s still having a hard time getting over that. ๐Ÿ™‚

Can you imagine the outcry if my county sheriff Joe Arpaio had said this. Just by “looking at their faces”. Isn’t that racial profiling?

And speaking of which, more lies from lying liars (my boldings):

Supporters of President Obama are working overtime to backtrack from his promise that “If you like your health-care insurance, you can keep it. Period.” While the president has conceded that this statement was inaccurate, the administration doesn’t seem to have learned its lesson. The damage control plan is to spread another falsehood about the Affordable Care Act.

…The president jumped on this theme in his press conference on Nov. 14. “I’m not going to walk away from something that has helped the cost of health care grow at its slowest rate in 50 years,” he said. On Wednesday, the White House Council of Economic Advisers published a report claiming that “the ACA is contributing to the recent slow growth in health care prices and spending.”

These assertions border on nonsense.

…annual health-spending growth rates began to decline a decade ago. In 2002, health-care spending grew by nearly 10% in a single year. The growth rate dropped to 7.1% in 2004, 6.2% in 2007, and bottomed out at 3.9% in 2009โ€”the worst year of the Great Recession, where it has stayed ever since. ObamaCare was enacted in 2010.

…To argue that the Affordable Care Act has been and will be a key driver of slower health-care spending is irreconcilable with the most basic facts about such spending over the last decade, as well as with the judgment of the executive branch’s own team of actuaries responsible for health-care accounting and future projections.

Read the whole thing. That the President and his pack of liars continue to lie fecklessly is, sadly, no longer news. You know what will be news? If anyone from the Obama administration would tell one truth about ObamaCare and its roll-out. Now THAT would be news!

I’ll bet my cousin Don who works for Boeing and lives outside Seatlle knows all about this clown. I know, I know: it’s Seattle, but jeepers! Looks like we’re heading back to the early 1920s and the days of the Wobblies. What’s next, a revival of the Ku Klux Klan? This is all dangerous stuff. I wonder if anyone cares anymore or if they’re too immersed in their iPads to even know.

I can’t help but think that all this idea of marginalization on both the Left and the Right is because you have a President who has done nothing but divide people in his five years and entrenched politicians on both sides of the political aisle who have little concern for anyone and anything else except keeping their own jobs. Look, there’s nothing wrong with two political parties being diametrically opposed to one another and its goals – that’s nothing new. But in this case, you have President who has little concern about governing or bringing people together; his only concern is shoving his radical progressive agenda down people’s throats. And with folks’ health care in danger he’s playing with fire.

And lest you think I’m just a serial Obama-basher, if this was his idea I’m all for it. ‘Bout time someone gave the Chinese Communists something to think about. There’s only one word that describes what the B-52 does, and that’s F-E-A-R-S-O-M-E. I don’t care who you are, you don’t want to mess with it, believe me. It’ll kick your ass.
