HOPE: Our New Squirrel

A very busy day: After expressing his outrage in Lake Harriet, Minnesota about the phony scandals drummed up by the do-nothing Republicans:

Bead-Dazzlers for Replicants

Today’s reflection: jewelry

Specifically, what does your neck jewelry say about you?

I know there are still a lot of disturbing things going on, butt don’t worry, Big Guy is still out there “working for you” “every day” despite all of those “phony scandals” “geared towards winning elections or ginning up a base.” So if he can take some time off to golf, we can take some time off to discuss bling.

Besides, BHO has made it perfectly clear that we need to lighten up. So, since it’s Friday, it’s summer and this is a fashion blog let’s talk about necklaces. I’ve noticed that liberal women tend to favor big beads and pearl necklaces:

From their Congresswomen,

dem congresswomen necklaces

To their Senators,

dem congresswomen

First Ladies,

dem flotus

State Department spokesmouths:

dem state spokesmouths

and even their Womyn’s Reproductive Rights spokesmouths:

fluke necklace

They all favor the beaded, choker style necklace. What is it, do you suppose? A secret Fem-Dem sorority symbol that you find out about only after someone opens those trap doors for you? A talisman of some sort? A discreet way to carry your prayer beads?

Or is it simply a product of liberal mind melding?  You know, the sheeple phenomenon?

obama sheep

I suppose we could blame Jackie for these fashion replicants,

i blame jackie

Butt I blame Obama:

A shining city on the hill, or the proverbial end of the line? Just asking.

It’s like the The Never Ending Story meets the Bad News Bears: the VA implosion, the implosion of Iraq, the implosion at the border, the implosion of IRS computer hard drives (along with the EPA’s) and now, the implosion of the economy. And that’s just in the past month!

implosion…a giant sucking sound

Imagine how you’d feel if you were president and had to find out about all of this when you tuned into the evening news. Without so much as a heads up before another disaster strikes it’s hard to “frame the discussion” properly. Which is to say, it’s hard to effectively shift the blame away from yourself and back onto your predecessor (as an aside: read about how Bush is now officially the longest serving U.S. President in history, edging FDR out by 2 full terms).

Butt with things going from bad to worse in Iraq, even Big Guy would rather focus on the lame economy:

Remember when in January 2014, Q1 GDP was expected to rise 2.6%? Well, here comes the final Q1 GDP revision and it's a doozy: at -2.9%, far below the -1.8% expected and well below the -1.0% second revision, it is an absolute disaster, and is the worst print since Q1 2009.

I’m not sure how anyone could be surprised that the country experienced negative growth (i.e. “honey, I’ve shrunk the economy!”) in the first quarter.

I mean, what else can you expect when 93 million Americans have dropped out of the workforce resulting in the lowest labor participation rate since Jimmy Carter, another 11 million have somehow joined the ranks of the sick, lame and lazy, and 46 million Americans are on food stamps.

Wow! If this is a recovery, Detroit is a boom town.

If you must whine, at least whine like a girl.

Question: What’s the difference between fine wine,

P43903-10a.jpgLaura poses with India the cat

and a fine whiner?

mo and grumpy cat bangsGrumpy Cat get’s her bangs on

Answer: one enhances anything it is served with, the other, well, what’s the opposite of “enhances”?

Laura Bush: 

In a sneak-peek for a special “First Ladies” interview with C-SPAN, former First Lady Laura Bush responds to a question about whether or not the president’s spouse should get a salary. She replies that she doesn’t “think so,” because “there are plenty of perks.”

Lady M:

About life in the White House: “Don’t ask! It’s hell. I can’t stand it!”

About a 9-11 ceremony: “All this for a damn flag?”

About her job as FLOTUS:  “it’s a really nice prison.” (and, she doesn’t get paid for it!)

So, as the world burns and our stomachs churn, BO holds a “Working Family Summit,” and has lunch at Chipotle with a hand selected diverse group of people concerned about such things. Meanwhile, Lady M lectures us on why we need a female president “as soon as possible” because “this country is ready for anyone who can do the job."

Well yes; I suppose after five and a half years, having “anyone who can do the job” would be refreshing, wouldn’t it?

Anyway, I wonder if Lady M has any woman particular in mind for president, or if any “female” would fill the bill.

Sarah Palin's Alaska Episode 04

I’m guessing the answers are “yes” and “no.” What do you think?

Team Organizing For America moves forward to the semi-finals

Today’s Reflection:

Proof that there’s only room for one professional in any conversation with a liberal; and because you can never hear enough from a member of the State Department’s Junior Varsity team:

Megyn Kelly Hammers Spokeswoman Marie Harf on 'Devastating' #ISIS Threat in #Iraq.

Or, as Donald Douglas on American Power put it:

With Marie Harf and Jen Psaki who worked as Obama for America campaign staffers in 2012, you've basically got a couple of ditsy sorority pledges who've got no business speaking on behalf of the United States government.

 

State Department Junior Varsity Team: Jen Psaki* and Marie Harf

State Department Varsity Team: Kerry and Hillary

It’s Only Monday and I’m Already Down So Low It Looks Like Up To Me

Today’s Reflection:

If you can explain this in one sentence, consider it a caption contest. If you need a few more paragraphs, feel free to elaborate; I’m certain America will appreciate any insight you can bring.

Here’s Lady M, with the sons Big Guy never had. They don’t call her “Hoochie Mama” for nothin’ you know.

Homeland Security’s Escort Service Solicitation: Now Servicing Client #9

Did you read Thomas Lifson’s breaking news report about Big Guy getting caught soliciting an escort service? (h/t deehra) No, silly, not for himself; he has people who handle that sort of thing. Nor was it for his Secret Service team, they too have their sources. No, the solicitation was for Homeland Security. The request-for-proposal they issued stated they needed escorts to help transport the gazillion new “wee citizens” and MS13 gang enforcers streaming across our former southern border to safe havens in Greyhound bus stations in Arizona.

Since the law requires that all official federal government operations put such solicitations out for bid, and since you, the taxpayer, will be funding the operation I thought you might want to review the proposals we’ve received so far:

First, from Mexico Lindo Bar* (please see footnote* below):

Screenshot Studio capture #1623

Headquartered in our 57th state, and home of the famous Team Juanita Girls”, Mexico Lindo Bar offers competitive pricing as well as special “Overnight Promotions:”

Screenshot Studio capture #1624

Mexico Lindo Bar has the Mexican chops we’re looking for, offers English as a second language and it comes highly recommended by our State Department, Embassy and Secret Service staff.

Next up, a bid from Mega Escorts* (please see footnote* below):

With world wide locations, including Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, this service has a leg up on the others. Combined with higher than average scores with respect to escort diversity (a requirement now to bag federal contracts),

Screenshot Studio capture #1622

and a bi-lingual website in your choice of either English or Espanol (another requirement for bagging a Homeland Security contract) and Mega Escorts is a top contender by any international standard.

Finally, we nailed one domestic contender; the U.S. based uber-escort service Eros* (please see footnote* below):

Screenshot Studio capture #1625

With locations in nearly every state as well as around the globe, this heavy hitter provides a multiple variety of escort “genres” sure to please even the most finicky refugee. They offer Female escorts, Shemale escorts, Male escorts,and BDSM escorts – all color coded (not by race, by ribbons and wristbands) for easy identification. 

ribbons

If Eros comes up short, it’s only because it does not have locations in the 4 states that we expect the majority of our new “citizens” will be arriving from: Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala.

Now that you’ve got the low down on the top three contenders, Big Guy, as usual, would like your input before he ignores it and does what he feels is right. So, I’m posting a “little pole” so you can vote for the escort service that you think best meets our Homeland Security needs. As usual, Chicago Rules apply so vote early, vote often, and solicit your dead friends and relatives to do so also.

*Warning: these are real escort services. You probably don’t want to Google or Bing them if you are at work, your history is likely to be reviewed by someone who might conclude that you are, um, curious or if you don’t want your computer to contract a PCSTD .
