how many freckles???

Hey Kids, What time is it???

Who's the funniest clown we know?
Who's the clown on O"backie's show?
His feet are big, his tummy's stout,
But we could never do without,
Joey, Joey, Joeybiden!

Who has fuzzy-wuzzy hair?
It's partly red but mostly bare.
And since the day that he was born,
He's honked and honked and honked his horn.
Joey, Joey, Joeybiden!

"The White man took the savage beasts out of the jungle into the light of civilization and made them beasts of burden and took care of them. Then they exposed them to culture, art, science, industry and humanity, and education. They released them into the world, but they languished and did not flourish and so they still had to take care of them. Then they gave them an exalted position and  special privilege and still took care of them. They gave them power and as soon as they secured it, they promptly and ferociously destroyed  the culture, art, science, industry and education of the White Man. And the Light of civilization dimmed, and the jungle crept back and it was dark once again. And the savage beasts were sated." --John R. Burroughs, London, 1878

THE NATONAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY HAS NOW BEEN officially designated to be a Hate Group due to it's unprecedented (for the modern era) and relentless untrue  scurrilous attacks on Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, and Paul Ryan.  Vice President "Joe" Biden's latest disgraceful remarkabout Republicans that  "They gonna put Ya'll Back In Chains" to a largely African American Audience in the South  has put them over the top and earned them this  shameful designation. Noted historians are likening the Obama campaign's rhetoric to that of the 19th century.   Some party leaders have protested this move by stating the Biden has gone rogue and suffers from early onset dementia, so does not reflect the policies of the party, yet he remains the party's  presumptive nominee...

Didn't need no Welfare state
Everybody pulled his weight
Gee our old LaSalle Ran great

I just heard Bill Hemmer on Fox news say "Walk softly and carry a big stick"...

This common and persistent misquoting of  President Theodore Roosevelt’s corollary to the Monroe Doctrine has always driven me crazy--and  would not be so onerous if it did not radically change the meaning of the phrase.

If you WALK softly, it implies you're going to sneak up on your opponent and hit him with the big stick.

If you TALK softly, it means you negotiate respectfully, but from a position of great strength to back up your words with the force of the big stick, but only if necessary.

I ate an amazingly delicious chicken sandwich and waffle fries at the Oldsmar  Chik-fil-A yesterday and Rosie had a Chikin Salad and a very good lemonade. It was fun to be part of the Celebration of Freedom and Christianity. The place was  jam packed with happy people. A steady stream of cars going thru the take-out  and the whole time we were there, a line of people wound around the interior, about 50 feet long. They ran out of (horrors) tomatoes. Wonderful to see. Later, at Grumpy's Tap Room in old Palm Harbor, while quaffing beers and watching the Olympics, we talked with a guy who went to the Celebration at another store. He said that place was packed as well. It's good to be an American, even when our values and traditions are under assault by traitors and commies, we can still come together and stand up for what is right in a world that has lost its way. Thanks, Mike!!!
