Taking Squirrel Politics to a New Level

You’ve heard of “squirrel politics”, right?

Democrats practice this all the time. We bring up something substantive (name any of Obama’s numerous scandals, the national debt, unemployment, yada yada yada) and they do the equivalent of shouting, “Look! A squirrel!” 

Sometimes it’s a strawman argument; more often it’s RAAAAAAAACISM or one of the other tired old personal attacks they can’t seem to outgrow. But always, it’s meant to deflect the conversation from things they can’t handle. I.e., facts, logic, principles, common sense.

The GOP has had a long-standing problem with being too stodgy.

I think this may be changing. Hillary Clinton is out on her “I Wanna Be Prezident” book tour and the GOP has a guy in a SQUIRREL COSTUME following her around, handing out bumper stickers that say, “Another Clinton in the White House is Nuts!” And the U in NUTS is an ACORN.

I think it’s brilliant! Some of the Lefties on Twitter snarked that the guy in the squirrel suit was a big loser. ::snort:: This coming from the people who cheer women who dress up as vaginas. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Cleanse Your Bowels book outshines Hillary’s I Wanna Be Prezident book

And that’s only the number two. The number one best seller is about teen-agers dying of cancer!

2014_06 13 Amazon best sellers

A sampling of one star reviews:

  • I couldn’t tell what parts are true and what parts are made up to cover the truth. But then I thought, What difference does it make?
  • Five pages in I realized I’d wasted my money.
  • Longest campaign speech ever by self-absorbed narcissist.
  • Seemed like a lot of fluff needed to fill a certain number of pages.
  • You’d think with their millions, they could hire a better ghost writer than the one who wrote this book.
  • More entertainment value reading the Hong Kong phonebook in reverse.
  • Grossly inaccurate and misleading.
  • Three thumbs down.

Dating the Slaughter of the Innocents and the Flight into Egypt

Today is Sivan 15, the date Jesus was born in Bethlehem.  Let’s all spend a few minutes this Father’s Day week-end thinking about what Joseph went through … accepting that his pregnant wife hadn’t cheated on him, but was carrying the Messiah … taking a massively pregnant woman on a week-long journey by foot to a town too crowded to provide her a clean bed in which to give birth … supporting the three of them in Bethlehem while the baby grew enough to travel … packing them all on to their donkey and fleeing to Egypt … supporting them in a strange country where he likely did not speak the language … taking them all on the long journey back to Nazareth where he again had to set up shop … be the most important human father figure in the young life of the Son of God.  Phew.  The man deserves a lot more credit than he usually gets!

PETE’S PAGE; FATHER’S DAY EDITION

Posted by Pistol Pete

You thought this would be a Friday the 13th post…wrong.

I’ve often wondered why people make such a big deal about Mother’s Day and Father’s Day gets short shrift. I think I’ve figured it out.

Americans are expected to spend $7 billion less on Father’s Day gifts this year than they were for last month’s Mother’s Day. According to a study by the National Retail Federation, consumers are slated to spend a total $12.5 billion on Father’s Day, which falls on June 15 this year, compared to the estimated $19.9 billion they were projected to spend on Mother’s Day, which was celebrated on May 11.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2648717/Are-dads-appreciated-moms-How-consumers-spend-7billion-LESS-Fathers-Day-did-Mothers-Day.html#ixzz34WkKKRzj

Mom is the one who cooked your meals,made your bed,eased your pain,hugged you when you were afraid and would walk through fire to protect you.

Dad dished out the punishment,yelled at you not to change the TV channel when he’s watching it,complained when you forgot to put gas in the car,told you to mow the lawn and wanted to know when you were going to get a job….when you were 12.

Moms were soft and loving,dads were a little more firm trying to teach you some of life’s lessons. It’s akin to the difference between democrats and republicans. One functions strictly on emotion,the other on reasoned thinking and hard facts. It all depends on your upbringing and how emotionally and morally mature you are. If there was no father in your life chances are you never learned many lessons only a man can teach.

My dad died when I was three and if it hadn’t been for mom having Gramma and Grampa’s farm to move us to I’d be an even bigger mess than I am now. Mom walked me to school and held me when I was afraid. Granny did everything when mom took off for long periods of time with her latest flame.

Grandpa was not a physically compassionate man,I can’t recall him ever hugging me. But he did teach me volumes of life’s lessons about what’s really important,what is trivial,what is worth working for and how to enjoy what you’ve done just for the joy of doing it.

If you find this entire post sophomoric and a complete waste of time then things are about normal.
