  1. We are rapidly approaching the time when talking isn’t going to get it done,

  2. “If it’s all the same to you, I’d rather my rights were defended by someone who would secede.”

    There fixed that for you.

  3. I’ll defend them just as much as they’re willing to defend me.

  4. i was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar when I met you

  5. Ask any boy that she ever knew,
    A-keep away from flunitrazepamfoot.

  6. Wow! Spam pingback!

  7. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay pay for the birth control of his friends.

  8. Wow! Spam pingback!

    Not anymore. I fed it to my Spam-Eating Norwegian Gray.

  9. All the reasonings of men are not worth one sentiment of women.
    -Voltaire

    Do you know any actual women? ‘Cause this makes me doubt. In fact any man who has ever missed a hamper with a pair of drawers, and then learned that “sentiment of woman” was that everyone in the house was going to have a really bad weekend is probably snickering at you right now.
    -Me

  10. Feed the beast to avoid the blame says Moran.

    If Sebelius is going to get the money anyway, why give the Democrats an opening to claim Republican “obstructionism” when October 1 rolls around and everything blows up?

    Just spitballing here, how about, because it’s against their principles as ‘conservatives’, and fear of blame is for spineless maggots. And maybe I should have written ‘principles’.

  11. Rick pee pee pants Moran wants to string up Health and Human Services and hang them with a rope?

    Color me skeptical.

  12. Rick Moran doesn’t know what the @#$!! he believes in, and doesn’t think anyone else should either,

  13. “If it’s all the same to you, I’d rather my rights were defended by someone who would succeedwas inclined to do so.”

    Upgraded to reflect my own personal views.

  14. All the reasonings of men are not worth one sentiment of women.
    -Voltaire

    With all due respect to Voltaire, women will be truly equal when they can kill their own spiders.

  15. women will be truly equal when they can kill their own spiders.

    And snakes, leigh. Don’t forget snakes. (Two legged or otherwise.)

  16. The “sentiment of women” is why we didn’t give them voting privileges in the first place. Looking at the last century’s policy history, I’d say the Founders were smarter than we give them credit for. Hell, one need look no further back than this morning for evidence.

  17. Voters were originally all landowners, the vast majority of who were married with children. When such a man votes, he votes for his whole family.

    There is something to be said for that.

  18. The GOP’s opposition to gun control is pretty much shouting ” not in the face” before a fist fight. Bracing stuff.

  19. Leigh, hah!

  20. It’s hard to figure why on earth women would want to be equal when they already have the upper hand. Who takes a self-defeating step backward intentionally?

    O, just bat your eyes and admit it.

  21. Eat me.

  22. I’ve been telling my boys that for years, sdferr. Look at all the things you guys will do for us just for a chance at a roll in the hay.

    I’m still steamed about the feminazis ruining our sweet, sweet deal we had for time immemorial. You guys worked hard and brought home the bacon. We took care of the house, raised the young’uns and spent your paychecks on new stuff. Our version of hunting and gathering is shopping. Bonus points if we looked damn good doing it and your buddies would tell you what a lucky dog you were to have such a sweetheart who made great sandwiches and mixed a mean cocktail for your Friday night card games.

  23. I could use a sammich and a cocktail just now, leigh.

  24. leigh, I have absolutely no problem with my wife doing the shopping and doing the bulk of the childrearing. The reality is, she’s got just as much (if not more) income-earning capability as I do, and she kicks my ass at the housekeeping stuff.

    Although I have to say that I do the spider-killing, firearm-selecting, weeding and lawn-mowing, as well as anything having to do with any sort of poop. Plus when the occasion arises, I get to wield any power tool appropriate to the job, and I get to go out and buy new and different ones when they’re needed.

    I think that in our house, we’ve both got the best of both worlds. Especially now, when guess who gets to help the kids with their math and science (and history) homework?

  25. I need to go shopping, darling.

  26. Take all the money I have. Get yourself something.

  27. Sweetheart! You are a love, have I told you that today? Let me make you a little snack before I leave. Drink, dear?

  28. Heh!

    I was going to link Shake, Rattle and Roll as performed by Count Basie Orchestra with Joe Williams, but Youtube does not have that.

  29. Sloe gin fizz, please. And is it too much to ask for a hummer before you head off to spend my money?

  30. Whatever I have, is exactly nothing, dear. Not for nothing is the ex-Mrs Whistle known as The Lamprey. So better make it a long, cold one.

  31. Ah, well SW. Let’s go shooting then. Wear your kilt.

  32. I sense a romance a-budding.

  33. Is anything worn under the kilt? No, it’s all in perfect working order!
