Pushing back the frontiers of ignorance...........

Back in 166 A.D. Emperor Hadrian had a complete stone wall and ditch built the whole way across England (about 80 miles) to keep those horrible Scots out.... and did it in 4 years.    In 2005, Congress was supposed to build a 660 mile simple fence at our border with Mexico.  Still not near done and you want them in charge of your medical care?
As with the Clintons, Obama so earnestly believes in public school education that he sends his girls to an expensive private school.   He demands that taxpayers support the very public schoolteachers he won't trust with his own children.

Merry Mary's Mirthful Mutterings...............
I was depressed last night so I called Lifeline.  Got a call center in Pakistan.  I told them I was suicidal.  They got all excited, and asked if I could drive a truck.
Friends come and go...but enemies accumulate.
In just two days from now, tomorrow will be yesterday.
My doctor told me to stop having intimate dinners for four...unless there are three other people.

Particular Paul's Perilous Puns............
The great German actress Brunhilda Von Divagruber had achieved everything she wanted in life but for one honor: She'd never won an Academy Award.
One day she was called by the great director Meyer Schmidtenlager and asked to review a new script he had. An Oscar winner for sure! 
She read the script and immediately accepted it. "Iss my type of script, Meyer, I'd luff to be an Oscar winner, Meyer!"

Have God create a wife for you while you sleep. Note: this will cost you. - Adam (Gen 2:19-24)

Gentleman Jim's Generic Pennsylvania Gems.............
No, there's no 'vegetarian special' on the menu.  Order steak or you can order the chef's salad and pick off the two pounds of ham and turkey.
When we fill out a table, there are three main dishes: meats (includes fish), vegetables and breads.   We use four spices: salt, pepper,hot sauce and ketchup. Oh yeah.... we don't care what you folks in Jersey call that stuff you eat...it ain't real chili!!!
You bring 'coke' into my house, it better be brown, wet and served over ice!
You bring 'mary jane' into my house, she better be cute, know how to shoot and have long hair.
College and high school football is as important here as the Eagles and Steelers, and a dang site more fun to watch
Yeah, we have golf courses, but don't hit the water hazards----it scares the fish.

That's it for this week from your "unfunded neighborhood organizer" lurking on the edge of Absurdia,  the principle city of The Peoples Democratic Republic of Absurdistan where we are expecting more huge fees and taxes to support "change you can believe in" even when everyone knows it won't work - like the Poverty Program.
But, on the other hand...............
Catch a man a fish, and you can sell it to him. Teach a man to fish, and you ruin a wonderful political opportunity - Obama
