There ARE Two Americas: Want To Keep Them For 8 More Years?

Democrats have always lived in Two Americas; and as long as BO and Joey are around they always will.

First, there’s Big Guy’s fairy tale America (no offense to fairies):

"There is no economic measure by which we are not better off" than when he took office, he said, and Democrats must tell that story.

And then there’s Joey’s America:

“To state the obvious, the past six years have been really, really hard for this country,” said Biden…“They’ve been really tough for our party. But together – and together — we made some really, really tough decisions — decisions that weren’t at all popular, hard to explain.”

So why did the Dems get trounced in the midterms? Because we didn’t tell our fairy tale well enough. In other words, we need more cowbell.


I sure hope nobody’s connected dots :We made some really, really tough decisions — decisions that weren’t at all popular, hard to explain?” 


In other words, Americans don’t seem to be on board with the bailouts, BarryCare, open borders, and the “complete transformation of America.”

lone ranger.jpg.CROP.rectangle3-largeWhat do you mean WE Kimosabe?

Here’s the take-away: we need to tell better stories; and everything you don’t like is still Bush’s fault.

So in our current state of “two Americas” we have the one where “middle class economics” – whatever that is – are working splendiferously; and the other one, where “the middle class still needs help.” That would be the America where the middle class has shrunk because 93 million Americans have permanently dropped out of the work force in order qualify for SS disability, food stamps, Barrycare and free oPhones. And the remaining members of the middle class has seen their net worth shrink and their taxes go up to pay for it all (can I get a little more cowbell here?).


No wonder it’s so hard to explain.

The perennial Democratic explanation for losing the popular vote has always been “we just didn’t get our message out,” never that people just didn’t like the messenger, or worse, their message. So if all they have to do is work on the delivery, then I’d say Joey’s their boy for 2016 because nobody can deliver a message the way he can.

Just imagine, the Campaign Slogan of the Decade:

Accountability: It’s What Made America Great

Good news: the first black president has been ousted due to to poor performance. Bad news: it’s McDonald’s president, not ours.

20150129165124-don-thompson-mcdonalds-ceoDonald Thomas: out

Apparently Mickey D thinks the CEO is where you look for accountability if things continue to decline:

mcd-sss-1.pngSame Store Sales, red arrow designates point at which Mr. Thompson took over

Butt that’s not the worst part: Not only did McDonald’s fire their first black president, they replaced him with a white Guy, a Brit who bears an unsettling resemblance to Simon Cowell. Tell me that’s not racist.

SteveEasterbrookMainSteve Easterbrook - in

What went wrong? It’s not like McDonald’s wasn’t paying their historic president a living wage, he earned $9.5 million in 2013, according to Bloomberg. Despite his raise however, McDonald's continued to lose both same store sales and market share in the US throughout his tenure. It doesn’t require a genius to figure out why. The Vodka Pundit (not to imply that he isn’t a genius) has identified 3 reasons for the decline:

  1. Competition from the new “fast casual” burger chains like Five Guys, In-n-Out and – my fave - Smash Burger.
  2. The rapidly rising price of beef – despite claims that a Mickey D burger doesn’t actually contain any.
  3. The left’s relentless cultural battle against the entire American concept of McDonald’s. He cites their victory in getting McDonalds to remove the beef fat from their fryers in order to assuage the sensibilities of vegetarians (specifically Hindus as I recall, in order to give the “protest” more diversity) as the beginning of their death spiral.

Indeed, the “emasculation” of their fries did reduce them to a nearly flavorless calorie delivery system. Butt that didn’t stop them from bowing to Lady M’s demand that they eliminate them altogether from their previously “Happy Meal” in exchange for a 2 year waiver from implementing ObamaCare.

“Want catsup with those apple slices?”

So for those of you who like to find morals in sad stories, here’s a couple for you:

1. Judge a leader by the quality of his qualifications rather than the color of his skin. Which is to say, don’t hire an electronic engineer to run an international burger chain.

2. You can lead a horse to healthier food,

donald thomas speaks about healthy food

butt if it doesn’t taste good,


you just can’t make them eat it.


Just like with school lunches.

So Don, enjoy your early, unplanned retirement. And don’t forget to thank the people who made it all possible: BO, MO -  and let’s not forget the enlightened Left.

Hippos. In The Soup.

Well here’s the verdict from the Newspaper of record, it’s another case of much ado about nothing: Michelle Obama Praised for Bold Stand She Didn’t Take in Saudi Arabia.

So we’re officially bored with the story now that archival evidence has emerged of not just former Secretaries of State, Madeline Albright and Condoleezza Rice meeting with the King of Saudi Arabia sans headscarf, butt - quelle surprise! – former SOS and president-in-waiting herself:

hillary 2012Did you have a question Abdul?

My favorite headshot from the archives though has to be Nancy Pelosi from 2007, because you can tell that she’s been recently plastered. Honestly, these last 8 years have been tough on her; all that expensive spackling has developed deep cracks and fissures.


Although maybe I still have a bit of a fever because everytime I look at these pictures I keep getting flashbacks of Fantasia.


Anyway, the whole headgeargate was a rather boring story to begin with and now, gratefully, we can drop it. And nobody’s happier about that than Lady M who somehow found the whole trip boring.

mo india saudiThey don’t call it “bitchy resting face” for nothing

And that’s all the news I’ve got today because, to be honest, I’m still feeling a little under the weather. I spent more time watching the puppy pile than the news yesterday. I think I could use some soup; maybe you can help out. I’ve progressed beyond chicken broth, so how about your best soup recipes - preferably one that would go well with these cute floating hippo balls I found while I was goofing off:


Not as cute as the puppy pile, butt then…you can eat them.

So I’ll provide the directions:


For 8 bread hippos:

  • 16 frozen bread rolls (I used Rhodes dinner rolls)
  • Butter
  • Black eyed peas
  • Black beans
  • Your favorite soup or chili

How To Here.


hippo stewYou can even make hippo puppies


If you can provide me with some soup recipes, I’m sure I’ll be back up to snuff tomorrow. And while I pretty much like any kind of soup, I should mention that there is someone around here that isn’t all that fond of broccoli, so maybe any other kind would be good.

Historic Snow Jobs

What can I say; sometimes the predictions are just wrong.

waiting for it to snow

That doesn’t always stop us from pretending that our prediction was more accurate than it really was:

It appears that the model used to forecast New York’s  Snowmageddon II was just wrong.

A National Weather Service official says the agency will evaluate its storm modeling after a storm that was predicted to dump a foot or more of snow on many parts of New Jersey and the Philadelphia region delivered far less than that.

So, using the European Centre for Medium-range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) instead of the U.S. Global Forecast System (GFS) to forecast this week’s weather in New York proved to be a big mistake, costing  NYC (conservatively) some $200 million. So I guess the European model isn't necessarily superior to the American model after all.

It’s sort of like that with ObamaCare: Big Guy along with his other really Big Brains promised over and over that Obamacare would save every family money, will cut the deficit, create new jobs and otherwise save America:

Big Guy promises his healthcare plan will not add “one dime to the deficit.”

Butt don’t blame Big Guy, it was his model that was wrong. Like the European weather model, apparently the Eurocentric healthcare model used by the Big Brains to develop Obamacare was wrong too. Therefore the resulting cost forecasts associated with ObamaCare turned out to be slightly off the mark: $1.35 trillion off (so far) to be precise.

It will cost the federal government – taxpayers, that is – $50,000 for every person who gets health insurance under the Obamacare law, the Congressional Budget Office revealed on Monday.

The number comes from figures buried in a 15-page section of the nonpartisan organization's new ten-year budget outlook.

The best-case scenario described by the CBO would result in 'between 24 million and 27 million' fewer Americans being uninsured in 2025, compared to the year before the Affordable Care Act took effect.

Pulling that off will cost Uncle Sam about– or $50,000 per head. - Daily Mail

In sum, the CBO’s initial forecast – that Obamacare will cut the deficit in half – was revised to: it will increase the deficit by $1,350,000,000,000.00 after tax increases of $643,000,000,000. Just a teensy bit off, butt plenty good enough for government work.

Therefore, no apology needed. That sort of thing is reserved for weather forecasters:

OT: Regarding Lady M dissing the Saudi’s by “going bareheaded” at the King’s funeral: heck, even MO gets it right occasionally.

saudii arabiaYeah, I say let the guys cover their noggins.

P.S. Thanks for all your good wishes and remedies yesterday, and thanks to Little Mo for filling in. I’m feeling better today.

We’re Taking a Snow Day

Hi! It’s me, Little Mo!


No, it’s not Twilight Nocturne Lounge night again; MOTUS asked me to report that, like much of the East Coast, she is feeling under the weather and will be taking a “snow day.”

I don’t think it’s anything serious; most likely something she ate,

Picture 132While the cat’s away…

something she reflected,


or simply the old fashioned stomach flu.

She said she’s sure she’ll be back at the keyboard tomorrow, butt until then you should carry on without her.

This is Little MO, signing off, and I’ll be watching you:

GloZell, Agent Provocateur, Punks the Punk-In-Chief

I know there has been much discussion here and elsewhere regarding Big Guy demeaning the office of the Presidency by agreeing to an interview with green-lipped GloZell Green. Butt just because she eats Fruit Loops out of a bathtub, don’t be so hasty in your judgment. Did I not tell you that GloZell is a national treasure?  I suspect several of you did not believe me.


Allow me to present my case, which will require you to review an actual clip from her interview with Big Guy, butt do it with this in mind:  GloZell, the crazy YouTube vlogger who will do practically anything, may have actually gone rogue on the Prezzy. And I’m not the only one who thinks so; NewsBusters also speculates that GloZell might have punked the Punk-in-Chief too.

As you watch, note at the beginning where she tells Big Guy that she has 3 family members in law enforcement, and her husband is a retired Air Force veteran. Hmmm, that should be considered fair warning. Next she tells him that she’s cut all the hoods off her husband’s hoodies so he won’t get shot by the “Po-Pos” and then asks BO what can we do about this black guy/white cop situation:


Not  knowing exactly  how to play her game Big Guy goes all serious and drones on endlessly, at one point  offering this insightful advice as to what white police officers should ask themselves before pulling someone over:

“Am I stopping this person because I should be stopping them, or is there some bias at work?”

Hee. Maybe we should draw up a flowchart for cops to consult before they stop someone for running a stop sign: “Is the perp white? Yes? Okay to stop. Are they Black? Check your white privilege.”

I think the point goes to GloZell in that round.

Perhaps Big Guy’s little people should have actually screened the content of some of GloZell’s greatest YouTube hits before booking her. Here, for example, she lampoons people for idolizing Oprah and Obama just “becuz they black…they black, they black!”

They should have done a little homework instead of just assuming that because “she black - she black, she black, she black!” she’s on his team. That sort of presumption strikes me as a bit racist.

And then there’s this video, featured here a long time ago: “Thanks for paying for my ObamaCare…shouldn’t you be at work?”

And then she takes her interview up a canal that few in the MSM would dare dip their oar; she asks BO about…Cuba. After pointing out that she was raised in Florida and has many friends whose families escaped from Castro – who, she reminded him, put the “dick” in dictator – asks essentially “what were you thinking?” 

Although she’s better known for her “My push-up bra will help me get my man,” “Ghetto Hunger Games” and ”Cinnamon Challenge” videos, GloZell makes a pretty good provocateur. And she may have just conducted the first undetected drone attack inside the White House – all while getting BO to discuss cyber security with her!

So let’s hear it for GloZell: she’s not your ordinary video fool, she just plays one on the internet.

bo's cubanoHow’s that Cubano smell, punk?

The MSM, Athletic Supporters That They Are, Will Sniff Out the Truth

I will be brief, as this could turn out to be a bum wrap.


We don’t know now, and may never know, what transpired in “Deflategate.” Notwithstanding, the nation - and by “nation” I mean the main stream media (MSM) - has now officially spent more time examining a scandal surrounding the inaccurate inflation of NFL footballs than we have spent on all of the following phony national scandals collectively:

  • Fast and Furious-gate
  • Benghazi-gate
  • NSA-gate
  • ObamaCare-gate I
  • ObamaCare-gate II
  • VA-gate
  • IRS-gate

Apparently integrity still matters in athletics. We know that honor and veracity have no role in politics. And we understand that they have been demoted to “optional” in most other realms of modern society as well – butt sports!?   Athletics was supposed to be the last bastion of honesty, the final barricade between civilization and total moral relativism. And now even they’ve let us down. This breach of trust cannot go unpunished.

Awareness of this injustice must be raised. Why?  Because “Athletic Lies Matter.”

athletic lies matter copy

And don’t worry, we  WILL get to the bottom of this because you will not find a bigger batch of athletic supporters anywhere on the planet than the MSM.


So just as every major news network led their coverage with Deflategate last week, expect them to continue to dog this story until they’ve sniffed out the truth.

We would expect nothing less from them.
