the lincoln of our times got 12 stitches in the mouth today after the white house said he was inadvertently elbowed while playing basketball with family and friends at ft. mcnair. the only family listed was a nephew, avery robinson, the rest of the players all appear to be washington insiders.
blame for the fat lip was placed on a guy by the name of rey decerega, a director of programs at the hispanic congressional caucus institute. i think that is a load of shit.
i think the princess blasted him after he related to her that the marines and air force had approached him, about affixing sling load and tie down instructions to her ever expanding ass. and he concurred. how would you like to be the the load master on air force one with that unsecured (bag)gage rolling around?
michelle proves plaid is not very slimming.
last one to lunch goes hungry...fo' reals.
even after the bike ride, michelle exceeds the recommended weight of the balcony.
does it look like the dog lost weight, or is it just me.
you see girls, if we drop moms ass in the colorado right there, we will have a dam named after our presidency.
what ever, after all the shit he has said about those of us who disagree, it's about time someone clocked him, no matter the source.
disclaimer; no part of this post is meant to condone violence toward our humble exalted leader.

below you can read how thanksgiving began as a nationally recognized holiday, sanctioned by our then duly elected governing bodies, citizens who at least tried to represent their constituents interest.
i post this because it seems to me that many have forgotten all of the good that AMERICA represents, or are just "jaded" and think that they literally crawled up out of the mud, grew brains and thumbs, and now post stupid shit on line.
you know who you are, the anarchist and atheists. let me ask a question. on those pesky national holidays, CHRISTMAS, thanksgiving and independence day, do you live by your avowed convictions and work, or do you stay home with your families, go to the lake etc.?
any answer other than work, or continue to live off the government you so hate, or protest shows you are nothing but a fake.
the rest of you, enjoy the day.
By the President of the United States of America, a Proclamation.
Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor-- and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.
Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be-- That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks--for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation--for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war--for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed--for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted--for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.
and also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions-- to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually--to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed--to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord--To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease of science among them and us--and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.
Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

politics aside, remember to vote today. i voted early but my vote honors my uncles KEN and JOHN and aunt LUCILLE as well as the wife's uncles JACK and GENE, and step father JOHN. my family were all ARMY, hers were all NAVY WWII vets. my dads friend MORRIE, USAAF.
also remembered are my dad (NAVY) and uncle RICH (AIR FORCE), KOREAN WAR vets.
dad and my buddy BUSTER a MARINE.
a man i work with ED, is a VIET NAM vet, the sole survivor of a squad size recon patrol.
my best friend growing up STEVE, his dad went from private to general, and led an infantry platoon in VIET NAM.
