  1. Perhaps a new segment of the population is coming to realize that Obama’s definition of “fair share” means “share more“.

  2. Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha – to infinity!

  3. Just when I thought I’d found an irony meter that could stand up to the strain.

    And dammit, there went my schadenfreude meter too!

    So long as they understand that “share” means “take” when you’re inside the Beltway, and “give” everywhere else.

  5. “You fucked up! You trusted us!”

  6. Should have gone to see 2016 and payed attention to it.

    Obama does not consider the US poor to be ‘the poor’. He considers the poor of the third world to be ‘the poor’. And he wants to teach the US what it is like to be ‘the poor’. Many poor people in the US will not be at all happy with how they end up under Obama.

  7. Could you maybe put up a highlight list of selections? I really don’t want to sully my parent’s computer with the DU.

  8. Mr. Saturn, try New Router’s Twitchy link.

  9. Hi, Darth! How was Christmas?

  10. Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all ‘right-thinking people’. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.

    This is known as “bad luck.” — R.A. Heinlein

  11. Hi Leigh. Christmas was a bit trying, through nobody’s fault. This was Mrs. Darth’s year to work Christmas, so she was away from home from 9a-8p (or later) from the 23rd through the 27th, which strained some family resources. Also, we all got some variety of the creeping crud so dealing with illness as well. Despite that, we all enjoyed the time we did get together.

    Sorry for being away for so long; post-election I wanted nothing to do with politics and retreated from Twitter and reading any blogs deeply (still scanned most stuff, but didn’t dive in). I was pleased to read of Jeff’s Best Writing on a Blog award, although I’m amazed he didn’t get the Deb Morgan Most Creative Use of Cursewords Award as well. I think I’m nearly ready to engage again without becoming overly curmudgeonly, cynical, or depressing. Overly. I’m still preparing to move to the first state that secedes.

  12. To quote the guy with the hair, Julia Roberts’ ex-boyfriend:
    Texas wants you anyway.

  14. Obama will no doubt point out soon that he promised that income taxes would not increase and that this is a payroll tax increase. And then I’m sure everyone will feel better.

  15. And he will soon be celebrating the fact that the chocolate ration has increased to 15 grams from the previous low of 20, and people will still smile and nod and call anyone who questions the increase “racist”…

  16. “Guess what? You’re rich!

    So, you at least have that going for you…

  17. Just wait ’til Obama gets a VAT in place.

  18. And he will soon be celebrating the fact that the chocolate ration has increased to 15 grams from the previous low of 20,

    Around here take it with plenty of links for the sweetness.

    Also, why you don’t mess with Texas.

  19. I hope everyone is feeling better now. We all have the hacking cough that is going around and I hope it keeps right on going to somewhere else.

    It’ll be nice to have you back. You always have a lot to add. Hugs for the girls.
