Green Jobs at Golden Arches

posted by bob

Unemployment rose to 9.1% last month, and employers added only 54,000 new jobs, the smallest increase in eight months. To add insult to injury, half of the new jobs were created by one employer — an employer of whom our obesity-obsessed First Lady vehemently disapproves. The inimitable Bard of Murdock comments:

At fifty-seven tries
I got a real surprise:
A job that oft applies
More cellulite to thighs.

Most mornings when I rise,
With sleep still in my eyes,
I head to work that ties
My life to apple pies.

“Perhaps you would like fries?”
My clients I advise,
“Or maybe Supersize,
And get a Nobel Prize!”

Barack might improvise,
But doesn’t realize,
The jobs his plan supplies,
Michelle would criticize.

While researching this one, I found some other goodies to graphic, like the 10-year-old who got a week’s detention for having one piece of hard candy. They’re not current, so I’ll just direct you to the album:

Court jesters and village idiots

By Chrissy the Hyphenated

There used to be an institution called court jester or king’s fool. This person was generally some kind of entertainer, juggler, tumbler and master of the one-line zinger. He acted as the court’s conscience, poking fun at bad decisions and personal shortcoming in people who were so powerful, no one else dared criticize.

There is another old tradition, the village idiot. This person was cared for by general village charity and served an important function in being less capable and competent than everyone else. He made people feel good about themselves even when they didn’t amount to much otherwise.

Since Democrats seem to spend most of their time criticizing their betters and making themselves ridiculous with their scandals and faux pas, I recommend we designate them to fill these important societal functions in our government. But let’s get the balance right. Lots of competent and capable people plus one or two fools and idiots per department. Okay?

THE SATURDAY GRUDGE

posted by Pistol Pete

EDITORIAL ALERT!!!!!!

There were two notable deaths yesterday.

The first was Jack Kevorkian, “Dr.Death.”

I could care less.Unfortunately,Joe Biden won’t be able to redeem the gift certificate I sent him for a session with the good doctor.

The second passing leaves an empty place in the heart of Americans who remember when the good guys won.

James Arness,TV western icon, passed quietly at age 88.The 6’7″ tower of manhood walked down a dusty street and outdrew the faceles bad guy at the beginning of every episode.Those of us who are old enough will always remember Roy,Dale,Gene Autry,the Lone Ranger just to name a few who epitomized all that was good and moral in our culture.

Contrast that with today’s heroes.Womanizing politicians,barely-dressed women,gangs dealing drugs and death with indifference.A failed education system,decaying cities,a population stripped of hope and the ability to dream.

Rest in peace,Marshall Dillon,we’ll not see your like again.

OBAMA’S NON-ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF TODAY’S JOBS REPORT

This man has totally divorced himself from reality.Like a child,he thinks if you ignore a problem it will go away.He truly believes the myth of his greatness,pushed by a sycophantic media will protect him from the boiling sea of despair and contempt felt by ordinary Americans.
