"If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and talks like a duck...it's probably a duck!"
Today's move by former PA "Republican" Arlen Specter to join the Democratic party, was merely a dog and pony show. Let's face it, the guy has been voting like a Democrat for as long as I remember.
On Friday (4/24), while I was away at the Spring Pilgrimage, Tay informs me that our mother hen, Churkey, hatched her first peep of the spring. Here are the first pictures. She was sitting on 4 Buff Orp eggs, 3 EE eggs and 8 other assorted eggs from our flock. After collecting 15 eggs like an Octo-mom, I set her up in a brooder in the garage, so she could get down to business.
With the Mets sitting at a 6-8 record with no threat of going anywhere and no team demeanor change, it's time to cut the cord to the past and get us a fiery manager that is going to kick this team's ass. It's an absolute embarrassment that this team hasn't won a championship yet!
I'm really beginning to love how the left is absolutely intolerant of others opinions, while demanding that their opinions be revered as gospel.
Now, it isn't possible to become Miss America unless you believe in gay marriage?
Why the hell in God's name is this even a question asked of the pageant's contestants?
With every passing day, the left is surprising me more with their eroding support of free speech and intolerance towards others.
The left is slowly becoming communist Russia.
Any dissention from their doublespeak marks you as a racist, homophobe, terrorist or retard.
Where is the ACLU on this one? Oh yeah, much like the NAACP, it is only interested in supporting liberals in this country. Neither group would piss on a conservative if they were on fire.
Here is the article at Jammer's request: Big surprise, the judge in question is gay. So, I guess there was only one real right answer to his question.
Maybe she should have said "world peace?" and left it at that!
How the NBC network can air such tripe is a testament to what a joke the network has become.
I have blocked NBC, MSNBC and CNBC from my cable system, even giving up my favorite show Scrubs in the process. It's really a small price to pay. Tay also gave up her favorite show Judge Judy in support. Bravo!
Tay and I attended the TEA party festivities tonight and were more than happy to see many other folks also upset about our government's runaway spending. The event was hosted by Rose Somma Tennent. The gathering was exremely orderly and peaceful. Just a few hundred people interested in holding their local and national politicians to fiscal responsibility. Enjoy the pictures!
Today, many "Taxed Enough Already" TEA party protests will happen around the country, and fittingly on tax day. We already pay 50% plus percent of our earning on taxes and with the spectre of more government spending on the horizon, it is time for us to say enough is enough.
It shouldn't matter if you're Republican or Democrat. Any hardworking individual, who has to work almost half the year to reach tax amnesty, should be up in arms.
This "cradle to grave" demand for government care from the deadbeats in our society has to end. Our own federal and state governments are bankrupting our country with outrageous and borderline criminal spending. Our government is really not running in a different path than GM. It's just got another twenty years more of rope to hang itself. We still have time to reverse this.
Wasn't the Federal government formed to serve the people and not the other way around? It's time to hold all of our politicians accountable for using their influence and our tax dollars to serve their own self interests and to make sure they are elected indefinitely.
The American budget on the horizon has the potential to turn many of our states into welfare states. If you don't think folks will be leaving tax oppressive places like California in droves soon, you're kidding yourself. I don't want that to happen to Pennsylvania.
That's why I'll be at the Washington, PA TEA party at the courthouse tonight that runs from 5-7pm.
If we don't stand up to the federal government soon, we will soon be slaves to it. You can argue that we already are... This is one issue that both parties should support!
Seeing Tom Seaver pitch, Dave Kingman hit and the 1986 Mets in their championship year.
I'm psyched that New York finally replaced Shea, where the upper deck seating should have come with a bungee cord. It seemed that high and far away from the field.
Citi Field seems to have embraced the cavernous design of Shea but achieved intimacy and some gorgeous sightlines. I always loved that Shea was a pitcher's park and despise short bandbox stadiums that have inflated HRs to epic proportions. Bravo to the architects and Lets Go Mets!!!!
Our cat, Luna, is defying logic and gave birth to only one kitten last night. 24 hours later and nary an addition to her litter.
At this rate, we should probably call this kitten Uno or Una.
The kitten is healthy, strong and large and tiger striped like Mom, but has nobody to cuddle with when Mom takes a sabbatical.
I'm not complaining since I can definitely handle a one kitten litter but I surmise we'll probably get an addition later tonight...
We all went to the Union Grille for dinner to celebrate. Happy Sweet 16 Aussie! We love you!
