NEITHER RAIN, NOR SNOW, NOR SLEET

It’s a chilly, gray, blustery, rainy day here in the upper midwest. But neither inclement weather nor road construction could stop the regular Thursday meeting of the OFC (old farts club). My beloved Uncle Roger is always the first to arrive, waiting anxiously for the rest of us. My Uncle Bob and I arrived right at 8:30 and we waited about 10 minutes for my cousin before we were seated and ordered. She showed at 9:00 with her son and her boyfriend. I told her unfortunately, men of our age can’t afford to wait for anybody, as we don’t have much time left. Roger turns 83 Friday and he and his child bride of 63 years are going to a casino in Wisconsin. I tried to get him to have her make one of her killer German chocolate cakes, which I would readily volunteer to help dispose of. I doubt she’ll do it, but I can always hope.

HOW BAD DO YOU HAVE TO PEE?

    How the Obamas Opted Their Daughters Out Of Common Core Aligned Tests…

    CAN’T HOLD THEIR OWN KIDS TO THE SAME STANDARDS AS THE SERFS,CAN THEY?
    A growing number of principals and superintendents are supporting parents in this decision, though pushback is getting stronger from others. But, says educator Alan Singer, there is another way to opt out your child from standardized testing — send them, if you can afford it, to a private school that doesn’t give them.

    The Obamas, for example, send their two daughters to the elite Sidwell Friends School, a private Quaker preK-12 school with campuses in Washington D.C., and Bethesda, Md. Sidwell, like other independent schools, does not bombard its students with high-stakes standardized tests. (It also doesn’t evaluate teachers by the test scores of their students, a policy promoted by the Obama administration.)

    Report: Clinton changed stance on trade deal after donations to foundation
    THESE PEOPLE ARE SUCH SLIME

    The Clinton Foundation reportedly accepted millions of dollars from a Colombian oil company head before then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton decided to support a trade deal with Colombia despite worries of human rights violations.
    The report centers on donations from Frank Giustra and the oil company that he founded, Pacific Rubiales. In a Wall Street Journal story from 2008, Giustra is described as a “friend and traveling companion” of former President Clinton who donated more than $130 million to Clinton’s philanthropies. He’s also a Clinton Foundation board member and has participated in projects and benefits for the foundation.

    EXCLUSIVE: ‘If a child of mine was gay I would love them, but I still wouldn’t go to the wedding.’ Defiant Indiana pizza parlor owners who won’t cater for gay receptions REOPEN store tomorrow, buoyed by donations of $842,000
    Kevin O’Connor and his daughter Crystal of Walkerton have decided to start serving pies at Memories Pizza after shutting down last week

    The O’Connors went into hiding last week after saying they would not cater a gay wedding
    But gays – and anyone else – are welcome in their shop
    They revealed they are set to share their new fortune with disabled children, a women’s help group, fire fighters, police trusts, Christian churches and Washington florist Barronelle Stutzman, 70, who was fined after declaring she would not serve a gay wedding.

    Supporters Raise $148,000 for Christian Florist Who Refused to Provide Flowers for Gay Wedding

    The Alliance Defending Freedom reported that the court’s ruling prevents Barronelle’s case from going to trial and makes her personally responsible for paying any damages and attorney’s fees incurred by the same-sex couple and the State of Washington.

    The 70-year-old grandmother may lose her business, her home, and her savings – because she stood for her faith, she could lose everything she owns!

    This is the first time that Cuba will attend the summit after decades of isolation from diplomatic relations with the United States.
    Obama is also expected to recommend removing Cuba from the State Department’s list of state sponsors of terrorism.

    You want a superhero?’ Iraq war vet’s ‘American Soldier’ dance stirs emotions
    THIS WARRIOR IS SOMETHING VERY SPECIAL. IF THIS DOESN’T MOVE YOU,CHECK YOUR PULSE.
    Iraq war veteran Noah Galloway won rave reviews – and a standing ovation – from the “Dancing with the Stars” judges and audience Monday night, with a stirring, shirtless performance to a fitting tune: Toby Keith’s “American Solder.”

    The performance Monday was themed the contestant’s most memorable year. For Galloway, it was 2005, after he was wounded by an improvised explosive device while serving in Iraq.

    His story of coming back from injuries to live again was an inspriation. And for the judges, Galloway’s performance with Sharna Burgess was one they won’t soon forget.

    “Your experiences are unimaginable, but your spirit soars unbroken my darling,” Judge Bruno Tonioli said. “You are the ultimate role model.”

    To the audience, he said, “You want a superhero? There it is.”

    Empty nest syndrome has Barack Obama in tears
    I THINK I’M GONNA HURL
    JUST CHECK THE LOOK ON THOSE TWO SPOILED BRATS’ FACES

    Sixteen-year-old daughter Malia hasn’t even finished high school, but Obama says the thought of her heading off to college has him crying. Several times a day, in fact.

    “I start tearing up in the middle of the day and I can’t explain it, why am I so sad? They’re leaving me,” he told a laughing crowd at a prayer breakfast Tuesday, injecting a fake quiver into his voice.

    THE MAN WHO SHOT THE VIDEO SAID HE DID NOT COME FORWARD UNTIL THE POLICE ATTEMPTED TO COVER IT UP.THE COP HAS BEEN FIRED,JAILED,AND CHARGED WITH FIRST DEGREE MURDER

    Patrolman Michael Slager, 33, opened fire on father-of-four Walter Scott, 50, in South Carolina, on Saturday after reportedly stopping him over a broken tail light
    Incendiary video released after the shooting showed Scott, a coast guard veteran, falling face-down on ground after eight shots were fired at his back
    Slager, 33, said in police report he ‘feared for his life’ after Scott wrestled Taser from him – but the video shows Slager ‘picking up Taser and placing it next to Scott’s body after the shooting’
    Scott family attorney said: ‘This was a cop who felt like he could get away with just shooting anybody that many times in the back. He just casually shot a man that many times in the back’
    Protests were taking place at North Charleston City Hall on Wednesday morning as local leaders appealed for calm

    Obama Considers Getting The Choom Gang Back Together, Visits Bob Marley Museum In Jamaica…
    SOMEBODY TRY TO CONVINCE ME HE DIDN’T SAMPLE THIS YEAR’S CROP OF GANJA WHILE HE WAS THERE


    President Obama visited the Bob Marley Museum in Kingston, Jamaica, on Wednesday, but except for photographers, no press was allowed in, per the White House pool report.

    Here’s what we know, from our own Karen DeYoung: Obama’s visit was brief and unannounced. While looking at the wall of records, he said, “I still have all the albums,” and “One Love” was playing over the speakers. Because, of course.

    Bill Clinton Claims Family Foundation One of Most Transparent ‘by a Good Long Stretch’

    He told Town & Country magazine that the Clinton Foundation is “by a good long stretch, the most transparent of all the presidential foundations and more transparent than a lot of other major foundations in the country.”
    A recent Reuters report, which found that the Clinton Foundation breached its pledge to disclose the names of all of its donors, undermines Clinton’s claims.

    The Clinton Foundation’s Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), which reportedly “spends more than all of the other foundation initiatives put together” and remains bound to the same disclosure agreements, stopped making annual disclosures in 2010.

      By “a lot of other foundations”, he obviously meant what the undergarments industry tastefully calls “foundation garments.”

      And I’m sure it is 100% accurate to say that the Clinton Foundation is way more transparent than what my mom called a girdle, if only because it is not possible to make a sturdy meat packer out of anything flimsy enough to see through.
