Pushing back the frontiers of the National Socialist Party.....

 
Welcome to 2010!   Remember the movie "2010 - The Year We Make Contact?"  Perhaps we will make contact with reality this year!
 
Meteorologists are calling last weeks a record blizzard, which makes sense if you think about it. Republicans always said the Senate would pass healthcare when hell freezes over
 
For the first time in history, the official White House Christmas card did not mention Christmas or include an offering from the New Testament - How is that "hope and change" working out for you?
 
Obama's poll numbers are so low now, the Salahis don't even want to be seen with him
Merry Mary's Meticulous Murmurings...........................
 
President Barack Obama accepted the Nobel Peace Prize from the Norwegians. This comes almost two weeks after Tiger Woods was also crowned by a Swede
 
We now see that Tiger Woods drives very well on the fairway but doesn’t fare very well on the driveway.
 
Never date a woman whose father calls her "Princess". Chances are she believes it
 
Let the schools teach sex education! If the schools teach sex the way they teach everything else, the kids will lose interest anyhow
 
If it weren't for the fact that the TV and the refrigerator are so far apart, some of us wouldn't get any exercise at all.

Preppy Paul's Perilous Puns..............
 
I have a friend who works in the kitchen of one of the restaurants in the Red Lobster seafood chain. He said they'd been experimenting with ways to improve the taste of the fried fish entrees. They'd found that if they mixed herbs and spices in with the shortening they use for frying, it made a wonderful difference. Of course, timing is still critical, and the frying process must be closely monitored so that the food isn't overcooked or undercooked. That would explain why when I called him at work the other day, he said he couldn't talk right then because (deep breath) he'd left his carp in saffron Crisco.
 
A young man was in love with two women and could not decide which of them to marry. Finally, he went to a marriage counselor. The counselor asked, "Please describe your two loves."  "Well, one is a great poet."  "And the other?"  "The other makes delicious pancakes."  "I see. So, you can't decide whether to marry for batter or for verse."
 
Juan lives in a small hut, in a small Mexican village and catches a few fish daily to eat with his tortillas. Retire now in idyllic Mexico with almost no money. And you too can live as cheaply as Juan.

Gentleman Jim's Generic Gems...................
    (And Workout Regimen)

Beating around the bush
Jumping to conclusions
Climbing the walls
Swallowing your pride
Passing the buck
Throwing your weight around
Dragging your heels
Pushing your luck
Making mountains out of molehills
Hitting the nail on the head
Wading through paperwork
Bending over backwards
Jumping on the bandwagon
Balancing the books
Running around in circles
Eating crow
Tooting your own horn
Climbing the ladder of success
Pulling out all the stops
Adding fuel to the fire
Opening a can of worms
Putting your foot in your mouth
Starting the ball rolling
Going over the edge
Picking up the pieces
Exercise caution.

Lucky Larry's Liturgical Leavings..............
 
The world is full of willing people, some willing to work, the rest willing to let them.
 
Isn't it a shame that future generations can't be here to see all the wonderful things we're doing with their money?
 
It never occurs to some people that there is a big difference between giving advice and lending a hand.
 
Elections should be held on Christmas. That way, if we don't like who we elect, we can exchange them.
 
If something goes without saying, let it!

That's it for this week from your embedded community activist, lurking around the edges of Absurdia, the principle city of "The Peoples Democratic Republic of Absurdistan"  where the slutty Mayor is grasping at straws to keep from going to prison for stealing gift cards from the city's poorest children..........

But, on the other hand..................
 
The task ahead of us is never as great as the Power behind us.
