THE SATURDAY GRUDGE

Posted by Pistol Pete

Kind of a gray,chilly,windy day here in northen Illinois.Plans for today include stoking up the fireplace and ‘kicking it’,as my grandkids call it.

From CtH:


There’s a great FOX News report about the ride embedded on this page [10:27]

Check out Melissa Stockwell’s page. She’s a 2x World Champion ParaTriathlete!

If anybody gives you grief about being “disrespectful” toward their messiah, show them the piece of left-wing trash I found at the Daily Kos. Can you believe anyone actually DISSED George W. Bush (who they call “The Chimp”) for hosting special events for Wounded Warriors? They even managed, in the same short space, to DISS anyone and everyone who has ever worn the uniform. These people make me sick.

The Chimpster [brags about] sponsoring a golf tournament for Vets. How thoughtful. And why not?  Most of them have fairly flexible schedules nowadays (unemployed).
Except for the few lucky troops who found time to practice at the driving range when not dodging IEDs, I imagine most have never stepped onto a golf course, other than to pick up trash, turn on the sprinklers or to find a quiet spot to spend the night?

    FEDS PROBE ‘SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY’ IN JJ3’S FINANCES
    He went into hiding in June and hasn’t been heard from since.Despite claims of fatigue,bipolar disorder he’s still running for reelection.His wife,Sandi,an alderman herself says he expects to be re-elected.Apparently there is a dearth of blacks on Chicago’s South Side who can read,write and speak intelligibly. The rest are really,really stupid.

      We had a Democrat running for judge here while in a coma. Literally. He’d had a stroke, but they kept him on the ballot and after he WON, sat on the bench where he reportedly is performing about like you’d expect a man who had a stroke and spent weeks in a coma would perform. He’s on the ballot again this November.

    ‘MILLION MUPPET MARCH’ TO SAVE PBS SET FOR D.C. NEXT MONTH
    PBS received $445 million taxpayer dollars last year.
    Merchandising from Sesame Street is worth tens of millions.
    Carroll Spinney,the actor who plays Big Bird,makes over $300,000/year.
    March is supposed to happen three days beore the election.
    Anybody wanna bet it gets more coverage then the 9/12 Tea Party Rally?

      $300K for wearing a feather suit?! That’s criminal.

      • “That’s criminal.”

        Well, since it’s taxpayer-funded, yes. Otherwise, if it were private, then, a star gets star wages, so what? You know how hard it is inside that suit, all sweaty and peeking out through a periscope while pulling all those levers and walking in those big clown feet, trying to sound squeaky, childish, high-pitched, and happy? Would you do it for less? 😀

        Hello.Yay, Saturday Grudges!

          I did it once, for about half an hour, got paid $3.50 and never even considered doing it again. And, yes, I did mean “criminal because it’s tax funded.” But also because there’s nothing all that unique about the person inside the suit. It’s the suit itself that’s the star. At the Disney-lands, actors compete to get to wear those suits and they sure don’t get paid six figures.

          • Well, I would defend good puppeteers vs the interchangeable suit-wearers. After Jim Henson, Kermit :mrgreen: never quite seemed the same. Kinda like Bugs and gang after Mel Blanc.

            You weren’t one of those people who dressed in, say, a big bear suit, standing out on the corner in the blazing sun, holding a car wash sign while people chuck beer cans (hopefully empty) at you, were you? 😛

    Darn reply button not working again.Thanks,Chrissy,for posting the W. pic.I miss him more every day.
    Remember Mel Carnahan was killed in a plane crash before the election in Missouri and he won anyway so his wife,Jean took his senate seat.The Carnahans are to Missouri what the Kennedies are to Massachusetts.All you need is the name.
    I tried to keep today’s Grudge short and not too depressing.

      Yeah. And at the same time I’m so glad he’s out of the snake pit.

      One of my kids met Marine One in 2007. Dubya told her little group it really boosted his morale to be greeted by a group of young Marines who were, of COURSE, decked out in their best dress, said he had had a tough morning and needed some cheering up.

      I looked up where he’d been; meeting with the DNC.

      Corporal K was so whelmed that he was thanking them for being there for him, when they were feeling it was this tremendous honor to be allowed to greet him on his own lawn and speak with him, shake his hand.

      Later, we got an official photo of him with the group from the White House. The sun was in their eyes, so it’s a terrible picture of all of them. But it means SO much to me.

    Incredibly STOOOPID Leftist tweet at #VPDebate from Sam Finkelstein ‏@SaveTransit – @sistertoldjah perhaps some specifics, yes, but all lies nonetheless. Sarah Palin was specific about seeing Russia from her house. #GOPFail

    Good reply from FormerDeminTX ‏@FormerDeminTX – Laughing at ill-informed person who thinks Palin actually ever said that. >>>@SaveTransit @sistertoldjah
