Who’s in Charge of the Pie Around Here?

Relax America, all’s right with the world. The Big White “Christmas” tree arrived yesterday to great fanfare. And by fanfare I mean even the dogs came:

I note that we’re no longer even trying to hide the fact that we’re living through a rerun of the Carter Administration (with apologies to Jimmy Carter); take this 1970’s inspired coat-frock for example:

Trust me, it could always be worse. We could have worn it with our knee boots.

And boob belt – with pearls:

So continue to count what blessings remain.

In other Thanksgiving week news:

the FDA on November 25, describing new rules that require restaurant chains to tell their customers about the calories they are consuming. On the same day, EPA also put out new rules for calorie counts on food packages sold by vending machines. Congress in 2010 had ordered the EPA to write all of those rules as part of the new federal health care law, the Affordable Care Act.

This has Lady M’s fingerprints all over it, if you know what I mean:

Fingerprint_Art_cheetos3A Cheetos “fingerprint” left on a vending machine dispensing “junk” food

It remains to be seen if this intrusion on free will and “choice” by the FDA mandate is constitutional, butt I say if you can use the Commerce Clause to mandate that everyone buy health insurance, then why not?

BTW, next year we’re mandating that every household serving Thanksgiving dinner to more than 3 people be required to serve broccoli and Brussels sprouts. Further requirements mandated by the Obamacare “healthy eating initiative” will be implemented after the 2016 elections. Included in the future provisions of the Big Brother Health Plan is a severe restriction on the number of pies that can be served at any one time – including holidays - as well as a restriction on who is allowed to get a piece of the pie and how big of a piece they can get.)

As I’ve mentioned before, this whole pie thing remains a mystery to me. It seems pretty simple.

we'll both have the cream pieWhy can’t Big Guy and Val Jar figure this out?

Instead of cutting the leftover pie into smaller and smaller pieces in order to give everyone, including our 20 million new citizens-in-name-only a few crumbs, they could either make the pie bigger:

or simply bake more pies:



I mean, this isn’t rocket science. Butt then, they aren’t rocket scientists either; they’re a lot more like Marxists.

I don’t know about everybody else, butt I’m suffering from a case of PTSD  - Post Thanksgiving Stuffing Disorder. I’m in serious need of some rest and recuperation. So what do you say we play a little game?

The rules are simple: after eating your leftover unindicted turkey sandwich, watch this video of Big Guy bragging to his newest constituents that he just broke “changed the law…”

Then, let me know what other law you’d like to see the next Republican President break change? The suggestion with the highest number of “likes” wins.

Just to get things rolling, let me toss one out that would take care of my pet peeve, curly-fry light bulbs:

cb-curly-fries. deconstructed light bulbjpgA “deconstructed” curly fry light bulb: “clean up on aisle 3!”

So here’s my proposal: the next Republican president can suspend the enforcement of the ban on incandescent light bulbs by eliminating the enforcement division, the EPA.

Get your suggestions in early in order to maximize the voting time period and allow people to figure out how to vote for their favorite more than once.

PS: Speaking of curly-fry light bulbs, I’ve been advised that Mark Steyn will be filling in for Rush today.

big brain curly fry light bulb Uh-oh: this one’s going to be trouble.

Thanksgiving 2014

For each new morning with its light, For rest and shelter of the night, For health and food, for love and friends, For everything Thy goodness sends. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you are like me, you have many reasons to be grateful and give thanks this year. Please join me in taking a moment on this day set aside to do so to reflect on how truly fortunate we are and give thanks.

May you all have a blessed Thanksgiving. I hope you enjoy your day and the food, friends, family, furry and otherwise, that make it special.

Because I’m going to be even busier than usual with kitchen chores this year, I’m reposting one of my favorite Thanksgiving  posts, from 2012 (I hope it’s not the scary cat photo!):



…and in addition to all the other blessings

you have conferred on my reflective frame

I wish to thank you, Lord,

for the companionship of steadfast comrades

whose wit and wisdom and strength

help steer me through these tempestuous seas


of flattery and lies churned to fury by the ill will of demagogues. Amen.


A special thanks to all who visit here. I wish you all a peaceful, happy Thanksgiving – because there is always, always, always something to be thankful for.

Pardon the Birds and Pass the Ammunition…er…Dressing.

Ever wonder what Big Guy did before he figured out how to get elected to public office? When he was still just some guy in the neighborhood, “organizing” the community and agitating for justice? If so, allow the  Rev Bobblehead to demonstrate what the fine art of street agitatin’ involves:

Agitatin’ Al…agitatin’

Boy, I hope all the outside agitators pack up and go home for the Thanksgiving holiday so Ferguson/St. Louis can reach a truce in the race war and begin to return to normal:

If all you agitators go away, maybe we can stand tall again.

Because like Big Guy said the other night:

“First and foremost we are a nation built on the rule of law, so this decision was the grand jury’s to make,”

Butt hey, if the rule of law doesn’t work the way you want it to, you can always issue an Executive Order, demanding that the riots stop and the cop be incarcerated “for his own good.” Right?

And finally, with all the uproar across America I failed to note that Barry handed out another batch of his special Presidential Medals Monday night:

presidential medal thomas brokaw streep

Included in this year’s batch of liberal honorees were, left to right, the woman formerly known as Marlo Thomas, legendary talking head Tom Brokaw, and the perennial Presidential award winner (and donor), Meryl Streep.

Today I think we’re pardoning the turkeys. No, not the ones in Ferguson:

fergusonseasongreetingsPost-Racial Seasons Greetings from Ferguson

The white ones:

cobbler gobbler

Figures. The white guys always get off scot free.

domini domini domini turkey“Dómine, Dómine, Dómine”

Now feel free to get back to your Thanksgiving Day preparations. All’s right with the world.

Don’t Shoot Me Bro, I’m Only the Piano Player!



If after 3 months, a grand jury – which everyone knows can indict a ham sandwich - can’t come up with probable cause for an indictment against Officer Wilson, what conclusion can you reach other than it was a racist decision?

Big Guy went on TV and did his best to sound presidential explaining how anger is an “understandable reaction” from people who believe “the law is being applied in a discriminatory fashion.” As usual it took him three times longer than necessary to get around to saying he was ordering people to remain calm and not riot in the wake of the decision. The rioters didn’t hang in long enough to hear him get to his point.

demonstrators-defy-curfew-fergusonLet the riots begin, I could use a new microwave…or piano

And do you know what other decision anger is an “understandable reaction” to?  The statement released last Friday by Mike Roger’s House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence that essentially let the CIA and everyone else involved off the hook in the Benghazi attack that killed our Ambassador. Good luck with that new radio show, Mike. Let’s hope Trey Gowdy’s Select Committee on Benghazi does better, because Chris Stevens and the other 4 Americans killed there deserve justice too.

chris1_fixedIf only he had worn a hoodie…h/t ConservativeTreeHouse

Before sending you off to tend to your Thanksgiving week shopping, I leave you with a few words from perhaps the country’s last honest liberal, Jonathan Turley (h/t dchrist81)

justice peace-TURLEY

In the end, it rings hollow to cry "no justice, no peace" when you are rioting or looting. There can be no justice if it is merely the result of demonstrations rather than demonstrated facts. Otherwise, the scales of justice become just one more object to throw through the window of an appliance store.

Meanwhile, please don’t shoot the piano player; he’s doing his best, trying to keep you entertained in a racist world.

“New Car Smell” or “Smells BeGone”– Cast Your Vote(s)

Well, he always did strike me as more “used car salesman” than President, so who could be surprised by Big Guy’s assessment of the 2016 Democratic Presidential candidate field,  where, at the  1:30 mark, he observes that the American people are ready for “that new car smell”

If you ask me, I think what voters really want is a complete air exchange - to get rid of the current stink.

smells begone

Who did Big Guy endorse as having lower mileage than himself? Hillz? JoeyB? Butt who am I to evaluate the mileage and smells of the 2016 Neo-Communist Democratic field? I’m not a big brained, Ivy League Economist, Constitutional Law Professor, or even an International Fashion Icon and Busy Mom (h/t Cripes Suzette). So, maybe I should just ask you:



Barack Obama Lie Lying Deception Dreamworks Schrek Nose Rub Mouth Cover 2 Nonverbal Communication Expert Body Language Expert Speaker Keynote Las Vegas Los Angeles Orlando New York City“There ain't nothin' more powerful than the odor of mendacity!” – Big Daddy, Cat On A Hot Tin Roof

PS: George Stephanopoulos also asked Big Guy to explain why executive “prosecutorial discretion” was okay for him, butt not for any future president. For the record, he didn’t really have an answer, butt since none of the other MSM alphabets are covering this embarrassing situation, I probably shouldn’t either.

The “Gods” of Winter are Drunk. And Loopy.

Even though Creeper cleaned up piles and piles of chicken bones before staggering home last night, Adrienne and I were still up bright and early to don our new Playtex gloves and clean up the remaining detritus from last night’s Twilight Nocturne Lounge benefit concert. (Which was a HUGE success, thanks to all who attended.)

Screenshot Studio capture #2333I’m too sexy for my gloves, too sexy for my…

So, as you might imagine, I’m a little cranky this morning which means I’m in no mood to deal with a new wave of crackpot global warmists. The latest batch of Warm Fuzzballs claim that they have "evidence linking Arctic amplification to extreme weather in mid-latitudes" caused by – you guessed it – global warming!

So again we are to ignore our own lyin’ eyes and instead believe the Big Brains’ version which has been created specifically to foster the ongoing belief in the religion of global warming. So let’s pretend I’m game: what do you think is causing these harsh winters, esteemed scientists?

Here’s their current theory: it’s the “wavy and loopy amplified jet stream pattern.”

wavy northern hemisphere jet streamBeware the wavy jet stream

I wonder what linguistics clown they’re using to come up with these new, eye-catching scientific terms for their harebrained theories?

wavy gravy Wavy Gravy[1] now official Ben and Jerry’s ice cream flavor and consultant to the “gods”

Naturally that whole loopy, wavy thing causing all the snow and cold is due to the rapidly warming arctic temperature:

And according to Francis and Vavrus, Arctic warming should make the jet stream more wavy and loopy on average – some have called it “drunk” -- with dramatic weather consequences. WaPo

“Drunk” - “wavy and loopy?”  Seriously? Do they think I’m as stupid as Jonathan Gruber does?

megyn reacts to gruber“Yeah - I’m sorry to report, MOTUS, they do.”

More on the wavy gravy theory:

“Here's the atmospheric physics behind the idea: Warm air expands, and naturally there is much more warm air at the equator than at the poles. Thus, the atmosphere is thicker at the equator.”

mo waistLike, who doesn’t know that?

Wait, what? “atmospheric physics behind the idea?” So all of a sudden climate “scientists” believe in physics again? After having ignored the laws of thermodynamics all these years? I’m not sure I’m persuaded yet; what else does your big brained wavy gravy theory forecast?

In their paper, Francis and Vavrus suggested that a rapidly warming Arctic should interfere with the jet stream, the river of air high above us that flows eastward around the northern hemisphere and brings with it our weather.

So big deal: Jonathan Gruber had a “paper” that provided forecasts of his model too:

“What we know for sure the bill will do is that it will lower the cost of buying non-group health insurance,” Gruber told the Washington Post in November 2009.

If Jonathan’s big brained theory had turned out to be correct (it didn’t) we could have all kept the health plans we liked, everyone’s healthcare premium would have gone down on average $2500 a year, our doctor’s wouldn’t be retiring in droves and our deductibles wouldn’t have tripled and nobody would be uninsured. Butt none of that happened now, did it?

“[ObamaCare] will result in individual market premiums increasing, not decreasing, as stated in the Gruber paper,” insurance company Wellpoint wrote. Gruber had simply failed to consider key factors in the plan that Wellpoint correctly predicted would add "between 20 percent and 80 percent to the cost of premiums under reform.”

So relax, we may die due to ObamaCare, butt we’re not going to die from global warming.
