HAPPY MONDAY!

Had a really nice weekend. Went to see Miss Isabel in her school’s production of the Wizard of Oz. Those kids put an awful lot of work into it, as the production lasted for more than 90 minutes. Many of the costumes and scenery were borrowed from two local theater companies. The boy who played the Cowardly Lion slipped in a couple ad libs and was really funny. I got a chance to talk to him after the performance and complemented him on his sense of comedic timing and told him he could do anything he dreamed of if he worked hard enough for it. We met some of SIL’s family that we hadn’t before and had a nice lunch at Portillo’s with everybody before coming home.

I went to work this morning, as usual, and it was just starting to snow a bit when I left. Minutes later, the streets were covered with snow. I friended BigFurHat from IOTW Reports on FB yesterday and first thing this morning he was condemning Fat Al Gore to Global Warming Hell as he shoveled three inches of the white stuff. Guess Old Man Winter isn’t quite done with us yet.

    • I remember Gov. Moonbeam back before he was a zombie. Or at least, before he became so obviously a zombie, anyway.

      Pete, I read about your snow from a Chicago suburbanite on Ace this morning. Reported this to Milady and said, I am so glad we don’t live in Chicago anymore! I was out puttering in the yard today; temperatures up in the 70s. The cloudy, cool-ish past several days just made today seem perfect.

      Hang in there. You’ll get Spring. The sun is creeping North faster than the glaciers are creeping South. Probably.

    DNC Issues Talking Points Against ‘Wannabe President Ted Cruz’

    “Fight back” against the anti-middle class, anti-immigrant, obstructionist crusader!
    A new campaign by the DNC seeks to “spread the word” about the obstructionist crusader Ted Cruz and the threat he poses to Obama’s legacy. A new email from the DNC provides anti-Cruz talking points to its faithful factivists, including forcing the government shutdown “as part of a personal crusade” to rob Americans of healthcare, being an anti-immigrant obstructionist, and trying to steal money from the middle class and stick it in the pockets of greedy corporations and one-percenters.

    Court turns away challenge to Wis. voter ID law
    ILLEGAL DEMOCRAT VOTERS HARDEST HIT

    The Supreme Court on Monday turned down a challenge to Wisconsin’s voter ID law, which it had previously kept from going into effect before November’s elections.

    The court’s decision not to review a federal appeals court ruling that upheld the law was a victory for Gov. Scott Walker (R) and perhaps other states that have tightened voting procedures to require additional identification

    Obama vows not to sign bills that keep spending caps in place

    THEY HAVE TO HAVE MORE,MORE,MORE…THERE’S GONNA BE A WHOLE BUNCH OF ILLEGALS TO BRIBE PRETTY SOON
    Asked if he would sign a bill that kept the caps in place, Obama responded, “I will not, and I’ve been very clear.”

    The White House has previously said that it will not stand for government funding bills that keep spending on both defense and non-defense programs at the caps, but Obama’s remarks published Saturday drew a bright line that Republicans will be likely to test.

    White House Encourages Boehner To Get Votes From Democrats To Increase Spending

    BARRY CAN ALWAYS COUNT ON THE SNIVELING LITTLE CROTCH-SNIFFER TO HELP SCREW THE COUNTRY OVER
    White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest called on Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) Friday, to work with Democrats, and not his fellow Republicans, in order to find a way to increase defense spending.

    “The most effective template that we’ve seen in recent history has been Republican leaders in the House sitting down with leading Democrats to find a compromise,” Earnest said. “That is what Sen. [Patty] Murray (D-WA) and Chairman [Paul] Ryan (R-WI) did and I think that there is some template like that, it doesn’t necessarily have to be just those to people, but this could serve as a model for resolving these kinds of situations moving forward.”

    Obama: ‘By Hook Or Crook,’ I’ll Expand Government

    President Barack Obama says he’s going to push the limits on presidential power as far as he can go during the last two years of his tenure.

    “Where [elected Republicans in Congress] are not willing to work with us, we will do it administratively or we will convene the private sector,” he said in a friendly interview with The Huffington Post.

    “By hook or by crook,” he added.

    IF THESE PEOPLE DON’T OBEY MY COMMANDS I’LL MAKE HEM PAY EVEN MORE

    Passerby With Concealed Carry Permit Stops Slaughter In Philly

    If you ask a concealed handgun permit holder why they choose to carry a concealed weapon all of the time, they’ll sometimes dryly reply that it’s because criminals are rarely considerate enough to put their deadly crimes on the intended victim’s calendar.

    Such was the case in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania yesterday, when a man with a concealed carry permit heard gun shots as he passed by a barbershop, ran in, and stopped a massacre in the making by shooting a man who had opened fire on employees and customers:

    Brunch patrons fight back against #BlackBrunch protesters in suburban Atlanta and Minneapolis
    I’VE BEEN SAYING FOR A VERY LONG TIME WHITE AMERICA IS GETTING TIRED OF BEING A VICTIM OF BLACK EXCESS
    Some sort of tipping point seems to have been reached, with Sunday morning brunch patrons no longer willing to sit passively as noisy protesters attempt to guilt-trip them about being white, or having the disposable income to go out for a nice brunch, or something (in my view, mostly anger about being such losers). Gateway Pundit reports on the pushback in Atlanta and Minneapolis eateries yesterday. In Atlanta:

    Black Brunch protesters invaded several Decatur, Georgia restaurants on Sunday. Protesters report two establishments called police, with managers from Sweet Melissa’s trying unsuccessfully to throw them out.

    Illinois State Employees Sue Over Mandatory Union Dues

    THIS IS WHAT GOV. RAUNER IS PUSHING FOR,BUT WITH DEMOCRATS IN CHARGE OF EVERYTHING,HE CAN’T MAKE ANY REAL DIFFERENCE.
    In a lawsuit filed Monday, three state employees in Illinois challenged a law which forces them to pay union dues even when they aren’t in a union.

    “Illinois law forces most employees of state government to pay money to a union as a condition of keeping their job,” Diana Rickert, the director of media relations for the Illinois Policy Institute, noted in a statement to The Daily Caller News Foundation.

    Feds to Weigh Children in Daycare

    USDA collecting data for study mandated by Michelle Obama’s healthy eating law
    HOW FAR ARE WE GOING TO LET THESE POWER JUNKIES INTRUDE INTO OUR LIVES?
    The agency published a notice in the Federal Register on Friday proposing data collection on what meals are served in professional and home daycare facilities and how much physical activity children perform.

    Aside from assessing how healthy the food in daycare is, the USDA will also check the weight and height of roughly 3,000 children.

    “Children will be asked to cooperate with study staff who will weigh and measure them for the Standing Height and Weight Form,” the notice said.
