Oh, Halloween. The candy! The costumes!

Remember when parents would cut two eye-holes in a sheet and send the kid out as a ghost?

Well, these costumes really let the Creativity flow!

Can you guess the character?

Return of the Motor-Mouth Moron

Florida Dummycrat Alan Grayson managed to get himself re-elected to Congress in 2012. Since our Congressional districts were rezoned, I could not vote against the motor-mouth moron again.

So much for hoping that his hiatus from Congress might have made him a bit more reasonable (=sane).

Rep Grayson blasted over anti-Tea Party email


Comment:

sharonanntomal Grayson was always an idiot and remains so. A key point to remember, whenever a far left wacko brings up the race card in any fashion, it means they are losing on FACTS. Think about it, if this clown Grayson thought for one second he had a winning hand, he wouldn't drop these racist bombs.

Emma's Birthday

You know, I would so much rather hear about people like Emma than about the Krappy Kardashians etal.





Happy Birthday and  Thank you, Emma!

Deaf to Reason

This is shameful and disgusting:

Feds-try-to-eliminate-housing-for-deaf-at-complex-built-for-hearing-impaired
Arizona is defying a federal order to eliminate apartments for deaf seniors at a housing complex built specifically -- for the deaf.
"I think it's about the most ridiculous thing I've heard in a while," said Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., who attempted to negotiate the impasse. "There are a lot of stories of out-of-control regulators, but this just seems to be going to the extreme."A 2005 federal study found that the U.S. had virtually no affordable housing for the deaf. So the federal government helped build Apache ASL Trails, a 75-unit apartment building in Tempe, Ariz., designed specifically for the deaf. Ninety-percent of the units are currently occupied by deaf and deaf-blind seniors.But now, the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development says Apache ASL Trails violates civil rights law -- because it shows a preference for the heari…

Who Indeed

This excellent article by thomas Sowell may give you a clue:




The Worst Ever

Move Over Jimmy Carter America has had some great presidents, many mediocre ones and a few bad ones. But we’ve never had one like Barack Obama.
He’s the first who thinks the job is beneath him.
He’s the first who turns political give-and-take into a crisis by refusing to negotiate with Congress.

He’s the first who thinks the way to more power is to inflict pain on ordinary people.

The move to barricade the World War II memorial reveals the mentality of a tin-pot dictator. The limited government shutdown did not need to affect the memorial because it is open 24 hours, without gates and often without guards.
But to turn public opinion in his favor, Obama’s goons trucked in barricades to keep out World War II vets and other visitors. By one estimate, the barricades and workers cost $100,000.The same punish-the-people attitude led to shutdowns of other parks and historic sites that get no federal funding.“We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting,”…

Liar, Liar

To whom do I refer?

Who else, the namesake for one of the worst things to ever befall this country, the Affordable Care Act:

President Obama Lied to Us about Obamacare
By the time ObamaCare is fully implemented, I suspect most Americans will be begging for death panels – to put us out of our misery. -Todd Starnes





This Is Not News

NYT reporter: Obama admin most closed control-freak  administration  I've ever covered
From the author Leonard Downie: 

“Whenever I’m asked what is the most manipulative and secretive administration I’ve covered, I always say it’s the one in office now,” Bob Schieffer, CBS News anchor and chief Washington correspondent, told me.
So, Mr. Schieffer, you're saying that the Obama administration is actually the least transparent administration you've covered?

This is not news to anyone who has been paying attention since 2007, when Barack Hussein Obama announced his run for the presidency.   Obama jumps into Presidential Fray 

NObama’s claim to deliver “the most transparent administration ever” was a load of political bushwa .

Someone asked what is worse than a closed, control-freak administration?   A media that covers for it.

My favorite comments about this article over on Hot Air:

    Yes Virginia there is a Santa Claus. Hope and Change. Bush did it! Tea Party people are…

There just are not enough kids like this around:

mystery police donation made by 11 year old

Greenfield police said a boy walked into the police department Friday and gave the clerk a bag of coins worth about $10.

Police were pleased but puzzled by the anonymous donation, so they spent the weekend looking at surveillance video from the lobby hoping to identify and thank their donor.

On Monday, Assistant Police Chief Paul Schlecht got his man.
WISN 12 News' news partners at Greenfield Patch report that Maxx Siepert's grandfather was a Milwaukee police officer who was killed in the line of duty in 1974.

Siepert said he had just studied the September 11 attacks in school. He said he learned of the great things police and firefighters did and he wanted to give back.

"Happy I did what I did because, one day, that's going to make a difference," he said.

Schlecht said the donation has lifted the spirits of the entire department.
