    The fact your parents named you “Steny” should have been a warning.The next time you have a thought,…just let it go.
    Does the phrase ‘whistling past the graveyard’ mean anything to you?

      “The Maryland Democrat said Obama’s numbers have surged as the economy improves” … ::humming Twilight Zone theme:: Obama’s Presidential Approval Index “surged” from -18 on March 5th to -13 on the 7th and 8th. Today, it’s at -15.

      • I check Rasmussn every day.He only polls likely voters and these numbers are ‘strongly approve’ vs. ‘strongly disapprove.’Methinks he will be chin deep in excrement shortly.(it just dawned on me-maybe that’s why he sticks his chin up.I thought it was just arrogance.)

            It’s also a good place to link to polls. I found this interesting tidbit by following a link to a poll I usually find is skewed by over-polling Democrats (WaPoABC):

            2/14/12 Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as president?
            Approve 50% Disapprove 46% DK 3%

            2/14/12 Based on his performance in office so far, would you say Obama deserves a second term as president, or not?
            Yes 50% No 48% DK 2%

            Interesting disparity between the Disapprove 46% and the No 48%. This is the same poll, so the same people answering.

            Now compare the second set of numbers above with the 10/24/04 poll (different people, but same poll methodology): “Based on his performance in office so far, would you say Bush deserves a second term as president, or not?”
            Yes 48% No 49% DK 3%

            We know who won that one! LOL

        Motley, your scenario of focusing on Bell, and then BOOM was brilliant. Why don’t you send it to Breitbart’s crew.

        Bob, et al, could you tell I am still mega grieving over Breitbart? Do we have a prayer request on this blog? Here is mine: neighbor, never married no kids just lost job of decades, (in a nasty way), boyfriend of 9 yrs as well, and she is only caregiver to mother with undiagnosed dimentia and many other probs, where they live in a 200 yr old house in need of much repair, siblings pathetically nonparticipating in care for mother, or anything else, (one long distance and useless, one close by, making it all the worse), and she has literally broken down on many occasions seriously wanting to die. Of course no money but the added touch. I recommended a book, but she said it didn’t help, she gets better from the Bible, so your little writeup of those comforters had me thinking what it would be like for her to get one of those, out of the blue from afar. Your thoughts?

I’d love to do this. Can’t help with money or any in person support, repairs, help with mom. But I can sew. And bead. Does she like jewelry? Sometimes a necklace or bracelet or earrings that are just right can be very helpful. One of my peeps uses one of her necklaces as a worry stone, because the main piece is so smooth and lovely to rub.

      PP-What about your incumbant. It is so maddening that the mad again machine has managed to redistrict in order to do away with the newly elected tea partiers. Chicago continues to go down in population, but they never lose a representative.
      This is why I believe they stole the election from Brady and put in Quinn, who could not get elected dog catcher before. They just wanted to be able to change the bounderies to compensate for losing 2 electoral votes.

        As far as Quinn,I know damn well they stole the election.That turd won TWO counties in the entire state and won the race.The biggest employer in Crook County is the government and before the election he cut a deal with them to promise regular raises and no layoffs for at least two years although the state is broke.The Chicago Machine never met an office they couldn’t buy…or steal.

          You are probably right. I could not believe how quickly Brady backed down. After the final count, he led by a few hundred votes. Then of course, crook county came up with a few extra ballot boxes that had been “forgotten” and Quinn wins by about a hundred. Plus there is the fact that all the polls showed Brady had a pretty good lead going into the election, and Mark Kirk was neck and neck with the mafia king he ran against. I think they made a deal, we will give you Kirk (rhino he is) if you do not contest Quinn.

      I’m not going to watch this so just going by Pete’s pithy commentary … IS SHE FREAKING KIDDING? Calling a person one of the starred words reduces that person to a body part. It’s dehumanizing … like when Nazis tattooed numbers on Jews arms.

      “Slut” refers to voluntary behavior. It is usually meant in a judgmental manner, as in “I think your behavior is contemptible”, but that’s the whole point. To shame a person into behaving better is to try and awaken the God-given conscience to the ways in which that person is demeaning herself.

      The starred words are much, much worse. It’s a sign of how deadened Leftists are to the dignity of their own humanity that they don’t understand this.

      All my life I have had dreams of tornadoes and every time I am trying to save kids. When I was young, it was my little brothers. When I was a teacher, it was my students. Then is was my own kids. I still get dreams about trying to save kids in a tornado. I think almost every woman would instinctively go into savior mode for the children they love.
      Ironically, my own mother would probably stay on the couch, smoking a cigarette and reading some Mickey Spillane novel and be oblivious to her family, as she always was.
      There are women who are just not meant to be mothers. I think that sometimes the souls who would be stuck with such mothers would be better off. I do believe that the soul does not die with a fetus. I feel it just finds a better womb.
      That is one I am pro choice. I do not the government telling anyone what to do with their bodies. This includes forcing parents to give their children toxic cancer treatments or vaccines, and telling old people they cannot die in peace.
      The soul never dies. It thrives on love. That is God to me.

      It is a MUST READ.
      Does a great job of explaining how we got a commie in the white house.
      It is all smoke and mirrors masterminded by Asselrod.
      Obama tried to get elected by joining the south side black church, but the people there did not buy him. He was not black in an American sense, and OBama lost his election bid to Bobby Rush. So Obie moved to the rich folk neighborhood of Hyde Park
      where he would be taken in by the liberal Chicago elites and could hang out with the likes of Ayles and other former SDS radicals.
      Abraham Lincoln is probably spinning down in Springfield, seeing what kind of man has used his name. Lincoln tried to save the union for separating. Hundreds of thousands lost their lives in this endeavor. Now we have a black president, spitting in Abe’s eye by trying to divide this great country once again by claiming racism and class warfare.
      To add insult to Abe, the Newberry Library in Chicago has an extensive display of Lincoln Memorabilia, including his mother’s bible, which Obama used as a prop for his immaculation. When you walk into the library, you are blasted with a video of the event with Obama pontificating, nose up, on a big screen. It is like seeing Big Brother on the screen! It just made me sick. No mention that Lincoln was founder of the REPUBLICAN party.
      Just one more example of what has become of things in this once proud state and the home of three great presidents, Lincoln, Grant and of course Reagan.

      I hope you will all take the time and read that link. It does such a good job of explaining how the leopard got his spots.

          Thanks, GP. I appreciate your suggestions, but on this one, I actually am fairly knowledgable cuz my eldest and I both have Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.

          My kids bought me Colonix and Toxinout for my birthday-Mother’s Day because I am feeling SO clogged up and they are SO beyond my budget.

          After I finish the cleanse, I will keep in mind what you said. Maybe I should go back on kelp.

          I have to be careful how many new things I try at a time, because I have no many seasonal problems. It can really confuse my reading of what is or is not happening, so I try to do only four new things a year, spacing them out so I can be sure that any good or ill is from the thing, not the mold-pollen, etc.

          I’ve been researching and decided to give Resveratrol a shot. My biggest issue besides being toxic and clogged up in the pipes is my heart. I know I tolerate Dr Natura really well, so I am hoping I can just start the Resveratrol when it arrives and then do the cleanse when that arrives.

          I never know til I try! LOL But maybe in the summer sometime, I should order kelp again. It’s been a long time since I used it on a regular basis.

              Thank you so much, GP! We were both diagnosed long before the internet. Mama Buzz had a goiter at age 11 if you can believe. Dumb doctor missed it twice and we only got a diagnosis after the Physician’s Assistant noticed the swelling and thought to do a blood test for her “probably not mono but we don’t know why she’s so tired all the time.”

              When I demanded an iodine uptake test, they gave us an argument, then the endocrinologist they referred us to (but did not send her records to!) commended them for testing it, because it was LOW. They hadn’t told us that when the tests came back. ARGH.

              He was wonderful, let us try Kelp for 6 weeks before going with thyroxine. It brought her levels half way to normal! And we left that stupid doctor. Anyway, it was a long time ago, before we had the net, and I had not thought to see what was new.

              Found a few things to share with Mama Buzz and implement. I’ll miss my broccoli … but not if it helps me feel better. Probably found the reason a few times a month I crave meat so much, Dearest RUNS to the store to get me some just so I’ll stop being so dang cranky. And I did a ton of research and chose NSP’s Dulse liquid.

              Ordered it from my dealer. I do not have a physician to do blood work or oversee high dose iodine supplements. It seemed wiser for me to go with something I know I tolerate (I can eat dulse) that is a good source of iodine, but not a mega-dose source.

The shorter the list, the better. We made a few painless substitutions in our diet doing that and feel better without suffering any feeling of deprivation. It was just changing from one brand to another. Over time, I also put less and less sweetening in my yogurt and now I actually prefer it plain with fresh fruit. A year ago, I wouldn’t have TOUCHED plain yogurt.
