A VIEW FROM MCDONALD’S PLAYPLACE

Yesterday being a holiday for schoolchildren and federal employees,my beloved child bride and I were tasked with the care and feeding of Miss Isabel and Miss Olivia. In the middle of yesterday’s posting DW suggested we take the little critters to Mickey D’s for lunch and to play for a while in hopes they’d burn off some of their excess energy. (It was worth a shot,anyway.) Miss Olivia has to drown her McNuggets in ranch dressing and loves pickles. Miss Isabel sucks down french fries like Michelle Obama inhales lobster.

Apparently dozens of other parents/grandparents had the same idea because the play place was packed. I’ve been in aviaries at the zoo that were quieter than that place. All the sweaty little bodies climbing all over in their stocking feet and shoes everywhere smelled like a boys high school locker room at midterm.

There are few things I’ve ever encountered as piercing as the squeals of a four year old. They make your eardrums bleed and your teeth hurt.

All the playground stuff kids get to play on anymore are made of cheap plastic. In my day,slides were metal,so on real hot days you could scorch your legs. There were monkey bars you could go across hand over hand and rub blisters on your hands,and a thing you could go around on for a couple minutes then get off and throw up. Those were fun times.

There are way too many overindulgent mothers who let the kids run wild while they play with their i-phones or laptops. There was even one aging hippie grandfather with a ponytail halfway down his back sitting on the floor Indian style with a couple kids,no doubt to be as one with the universe on Indigenous Peoples’ Day.

The plan was to wear off some energy so they’d take a nap. I think you can guess who it was who needed a nap that afternoon.
MISS OLIVIA WAS HELPING DADDY WORK ON HIS CAR AND SHE FOUND THE AIR HOSE. YA GOTTA LOVE HER

    Fireworks: Pryor Doubles Down, Calls Cotton “Entitled” Again During Fiery Debate
    Since the debate aired on a Monday in the middle of the afternoon, I’m not sure how many Arkansans tuned it. But the good news is it will re-air tonight on public television — and there is another debate tomorrow.

    This time, however, there will only be two candidates on stage. Let the games begin.

    Kerry: Kobani Is Just ‘One Community’
    Monday, Secretary of State John Kerry downplayed the importance of defending the besieged Syrian border town of Kobani despite widespread reports that ISIS is using its success there as a recruiting tool.

    Kerry said, “Kobani is one community, and it’s a tragedy what is happening there, and we don’t diminish that. But we have said from day one it is going to take a period of time to bring the coalition thoroughly to the table, to rebuild some of the morale and capacity of the Iraqi army, and to begin to focus where we ought to be focusing first, which is in Iraq.”

    If this prick had a conscience the cries of the victims would torment him.If.

    Police: More than 50 arrested in Ferguson protests
    More than 50 people were arrested, including scholar and civil rights activist Cornel West.
    <img src="View image on Twitter” alt=”” />

    West was among 42 arrested for peace disturbance at the Ferguson police station. Some protesters used a bullhorn to read the names of people killed by police nationwide. Christian, Jewish and Muslim clergy members — some of whom were among the first arrested — led a prayer service before marching to the station two blocks away.

    Obama’s plan to continue his ‘transformation’

    Thomas Sowell: BHO is fundraising to assure approval of lifetime judicial appointments
    Dr. Sowell’s article is highly recommended reading.

    With all the cross-currents of political controversies raging today, what is the overriding national issue that makes this year’s congressional elections so crucial?

    That issue is whether, despite all the lawless edicts of President Obama, threatening one-man rule, we can still salvage enough of the Constitution to remain a free, democratic nation.

    Barack Obama will be on his way out in two years, but if he can appoint enough federal judges who share his contempt for the Constitution’s limits on federal government power in general, and presidential powers in particular, then the United States of America can continue on the path to becoming another banana republic, even after Obama has left the White House.

    Liberals “Offended” By Oklahoma Neighbor’s Halloween Decorations
    APPARENTLY EVERYBODY IN OBAMANATION IS AS THIN-SKINNED AS HE IS.

    Of course, not everyone is on board with demonstrations of discontent with President Obama. In fact, one Oklahoma woman is “absolutely offended” at her neighbors’ Halloween decorations, which she believes have gone too far, KOCO reports.

    “I saw it for myself and I was absolutely offended,” Jamilla Phillips said, referring to a fake tombstone with Obama’s name on it.

    Phillips, an Edmond resident, was afraid the marker might send the wrong message to children, although, she wasn’t too worried about the demonic baby doll, shredded torso, or bloody crosses.

    “He is the president of the United States and it’s about respect,” Phillips added. “This person is still alive. I just thought it was an absolute disrespect.”

    Get over it,sista,you didn’t show any respect when Bush was in office,so go piss up a rope and get a life.

    As school children continue to protest Michelle Obama’s push for healthier lunches by dumping their full trays into garbage bins, the nation’s school boards are joining in to demand that the Obama administration let them off the hook of serving the costly and tasteless meals.

    Hotline’s Senate Race Rankings: Republicans on the Brink
    The woman in the picture is Shelley Moore Capito,R-W. Va.-the guy in the background ain’t there no more.

    Senate control looks tantalizingly close for the GOP, but Democrats still have a fair chance to hold the line.
    You will be hearing from the “experts” about the senate races ad nauseum for the next three weeks.
    The top three states look very likely to flip; the GOP appears to have smaller advantages in the next three states; the next bloc of three look like something close to pure toss-ups; and the incumbent party is favored in the races after No. 9. The races in our list are ordered by the likelihood of the seat flipping between the parties.

    White House Won’t Say How Much Taxpayers Pay For Obama Fundraising
    When President Barack Obama takes Air Force One on a fundraising swing, he is required under the law to reimburse taxpayers for certain travel expenses.

    But as Mark Knoller of CBS News reports, the White House has made it a practice of not publicly releasing specific reimbursement figures, making it impossible for the public to see exactly how much they pay every time the president goes on a political trip.

    Knoller says it’s not about national security reasons, but rather about saving face.

    “Very simply, the White House doesn’t want to disclose the material because it might be embarrassing and would draw lots of criticism, which Mr. Obama can do without,” Knoller reports.

    ABC NEWS: PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS BEEN TO ZERO CAMPAIGN EVENTS THIS CYCLE

    Just three weeks to go until the midterm elections and with control of the Senate hanging in the balance, candidates are scrambling toward the finish line.

    One key figure, however, has been largely absent: President Obama.

    President Obama has appeared at zero public campaign events this cycle, opting instead to tap into his fundraising prowess to boost Democratic candidates behind closed-doors.

    Braced for Voter Fraud in Colorado
    <img src="” alt=”” />
    Having suffered stinging defeat at the polls, advocates of same-day registration were careful in 2013 to have it approved by the state legislature instead of the people. They rammed through the bill without any bipartisan input. It allowed those running voter-registration drives to delay delivery of the registrations they accepted, reducing the time available to check the data on them. It stripped county clerks of the ability to review new voter registrations and forced every Colorado voter to receive a mail ballot, including 800,000 who had clearly expressed their desire to vote only at polling places. Ballots will be mailed to people who don’t vote and no longer live in Colorado, because the law makes it very difficult to remove names from the voting rolls.

    SHOCKING VIDEO Uncovered of Democratic Party Vice Chair Ray Buckley – Second in Line at DNC
    Ray Buckley is the chair of the New Hampshire Democratic Party. He is also Vice Chair at the DNC. If something were to happen to unhinged DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Buckley would step in and take her place. So, Buckley is an important player in Democratic politics.
    And, he’s everything you’d expect from a Democratic leader.

    Recently, a video was uncovered of Raymond Buckley saying Hitler should have bombed The Hague.
    Buckley also pulls down his zipper in front of associates.

    Will Independent Candidates’ Support Dissipate in Kansas and South Dakota?
    Unless these polls are dreadfully wrong, there’s no question that many Kansas and South Dakota voters have been changing their minds. That’s in contrast to the relatively static preferences of voters in other states with serious Senate contests, where only a few percent seem to have been moving around
    Both these states’ contests feature purportedly independent candidates. In September, Gallup reported, 58 percent of Americans said that a third political party was needed. So maybe it’s not surprising that, when presented with a well-known independent candidate, many voters consider voting for him.

    But will they still feel that way on Election Day? Recent elections in Brazil on Oct. 5 and in Britain in 2010 suggest that they may not.

  20. PP: “There was even one aging hippie grandfather with a ponytail halfway down his back sitting on the floor Indian style with a couple kids, no doubt to be as one with the universe on Indigenous Peoples’ Day.”

    (Looks around the room, clears throat)

    Okay, look, this happens sometimes. Mistaken profiling.

    Just because I forgot to get a haircut for, uh, okay, several years now, that doesn’t make me a hippie.* Would you call some of those long-gray-pony-tailed bikers hippies? To be a valid hippie sighting, there must be a clear 2nd hippie indicator, such as braided beard beads or a faded “Vote McGovern” button. Just because I can still sit cross-legged on the floor, that doesn’t count, and it doesn’t mean I’m protesting for feather-Indians nor trying to do dot-Indian yoga. It’s just so I’m at the kids’ level — playing on the floor with the kids is more fun than sitting around griping with the grumps. Keeps me young. And I was only sitting in the play area, not *ew* the eating area, right?

    Oh, wait, wait. Never mind all the foregoing. You said grandfather! I’m not (alas). Okay, so, um, that wasn’t me. Yeah, those dirty aging hippies! Every time I see some guy with a gray pony tail, I shake my head and remark to the Mrs about the lack of self-respect in someone that age. What are they thinking?

    * Historical note, per Hippiepedia: There were only about a dozen actual “hippies,” very nice, smart, clever, creative people, who were clean, wore wild, colorful clothes, and enjoyed engaging in wacky street theater and punking the press. They all went on to work in the insurance industry about the time “hippie” entered the language — meaning, mentioned in Time Magazine. Every so-called hippie / dippie / yippie since then is just another dirty punk poor imitator. (Like all metal bands after Led Zeppelin.) But they say the true Hippie Spirit will never die. Cough cough. Holy smoke!

    • Hahahah!! Great comment, Mindful! And well-taken. We conservatives have a tough time knowing how to handle the hippie thing, because so many used to be hippies or married hippies or still are hippies. MRM and I used to joke a lot about that. And, of course, there have always been 2 kinds of hippies, just like there have always been 2 kinds of everything (like classical liberals are more like conservatives than modern libs are). I remember people complaining back in the early 70s about how all the young hippies weren’t “real longhairs.” Meaning not actual “broadminded, good people.” And they were right. Lots of the poser hippies were just idiots pretending to be hip for the drugs and free sex, but they didn’t care about anything.

      At the time, I was just a kid and I didn’t see the point in dividing people up based on hair length. Old farts seemed just as likely, to me, to be broadminded as longhairs, so I didn’t get it. But people are different all over.

      Love the Hippiepedia quote and your graphic! Funny Stuff!
