PETE’S PAGE; WEDNESDAY EDITION

Posted by Pistol Pete

First, a thought for the birthday of Elvis Aaron Presley. He would have been 79 years old today….had he not died on his toilet in a drug-induced stupor.

OK, that’s done.

Record-High 42% of Americans Identify as Independents; Republican identification lowest in at least 25 years

PRINCETON, NJ — Forty-two percent of Americans, on average, identified as political independents in 2013, the highest Gallup has measured since it began conducting interviews by telephone 25 years ago. Meanwhile, Republican identification fell to 25%, the lowest over that time span. At 31%, Democratic identification is unchanged from the last four years but down from 36% in 2008.

Do you think the GOP realizes that Tea Party patriots and regular conservatives are abandoning them in droves ? Or that we’ve had it with being lied to and watching the DC republicans help democrats in destroying everything we ever believed in? Scott Walker said we should stop fighting republicans and start fighting democrats. From where I sit,there’s hardly a dime’s worth of difference between them.

There has been much made so far of former Defense Secretary Robert Gates scathing indictment of Barry,Plugs and Cankles. That Obama only pretends to be interested in anything that doesn’t fit in with his quest for good times and self-aggrandizement is not a shock. People  have pondered if this will harm Hillary! in any way. My thought is that their voters are mostly practitioners  of political idolatry. They will vote for these lower life forms no matter what.

Plugs: Do I look cool like this?

Barky: Gotta go,its almost my tee time with Reggie.

Cankles: I gotta pee.

OK,enough editorializing for now.

Leadership Failure

March 16, 2006: Senator Barack Obama called the Republican’s request to increase the national debt limit a failure of leadership. The national debt was HALF then what it is now and the so-called “leadership” in Washington shows no signs of reining it in before the country goes bankrupt.

Grade schooler demonstrates value of ORGANIC

Sheesh! You have got to watch this.

UPDATE: A Facebook friend added this link to my post of the video. Good research, Cindy!

“I’ve been in the sweet potato business for 30+ years; I’ve never heard that sweet potatoes are sprayed with Bud Nip,” said Johnson-Langdon. Indeed, Bud Nip is registered to be use in potatoes only, not sweet potatoes; we haven’t found any documentation to show that Bud Nip is registered to be used in sweet potatoes!

Jesus I trust in You

Jesus said, “Have no fear of them; for nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. … Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul.” -Matthew 10:26,28
