  1. Good description there Keith…”receies” the the PDB..about what he probably does..
    I notice he just had to show his face on TV as I walked through the workplace today. yuck

  2. Very OT, but….I was listening to some music and goofing off and I noticed this.

    Are those white boys playing with Charles Bradley? The music is good and everybody is enjoying themselves. Kinda blows a hole through Barack Obama’s racist America.

    May not be your thing, but I like Bradley — so enjoy.

    Not your thing? Try this. More morning appropriate. Nice.

  3. Another OT but pretty funny. Chris Matthews was caught oogling Melania Trump the other night on a hot mic right on TV……story on Daily Mail….the comment section is pretty funny too.

  4. I wonder if Barry will perform his famous Carmen Miranda impersonation at the Cinco de Mayo reception at 4:05 pm. They say it’s a sight to behold when he puts on his fruit hat and starts working his castanets while dancing the zambra. Ole! Click, click.

  5. Today is also National Day of Prayer.
    BHO is not attending – and have not heard this mentioned on the news.
    Yet, everyone is talking about Cinco de Mayo and BHO is attending a CdM reception.
    Personally, I don’t believe we need to host a reception for CdM. We are NOT the United States of Mexico.
    And while I am griping, other topics deemed newsworthy today are:
    -the Mayor of New York City asking people to boycott Chick-fil-A because the owners uphold traditional marriage
    -the Justice department threatening to remove fed funding to NC because the Governor of that State upholds girls going to girls bathrooms and boys going to boys bathrooms.
    I will be buying food from Chick-fil-A every chance I get just because the NYC mayor said not to support it. (Won’t have much of any chance – don’t have them here.). Can you believe a government official would tell anyone to boycott a private business? Maybe we are the USM…
    And, I do not believe God makes mistakes – so if you have girl parts you are a girl. Same for boys.

      • And FYI, I have a rapidly worsening physical deformity which has affected my mobility…and will continue to affect it and my appearance. There is no known cause for my condition and many days the pain is nearly unbearable as I have aged. There is no cure or fix.
        Why me? Don’t know. And honestly, I don’t care why I have this – it is what it is.
        But this I do know – I am not a mistake. And I love God all the more for this condition because it draws me closer to Him.
        Non-believers will not understand that, I realize. But it is my truth and I treasure it. All I ask is respect for my belief and the strength and comfort He gives me so freely.
        And I always need all the prayers I can get! :-)

        • I did not say you were a mistake–but I am sure you are doing everything you can to help your situation, as do transgender people. I am very sorry to hear this about you, by the way…I will send a prayer…

          • Bless your heart, Star. Thank you. I know what you meant.
            And if I may make one more comment…I don’t think any of us are mistakes. I do think we have mistaken thoughts and ideas from time to time.
            My parents told me I was a mistake. I understand now that what they meant and, perhaps, couldn’t admit, was that they had made a mistake and the result was me. So I suppose I am too sensitive about anyone that might be regarded as a mistake. Sorry.
            As I have said before LGTB issues are not my battle yet I keep inserting myself into their fight. Why oh why? I am resolving to keep my mouth shut about them! :-)

          • You remark about your mom reminded me how my parents used to say, “We should never have had four children. It’s too many. We don’t know which of you we’d give up, but it’s too many….”

        • Dear Aileen, You are so right-non believers do not understand what you are talking in about. I have been blessed so many ways that I cannot even count them even though I have made many mistakes in my life. Every morning I awake I say that wonderful verse “this is the day the Lord hath made and I will rejoice and be glad in it.” May God keep you safe.

  6. Something Obama would approve — from the Drudge headline it appears that the fine people of London did indeed elect their first Muslim mayor. (I did not read the article, I can only stomach so much craziness).

    Something we learned hard with Obama. Elections have consequences. No sympathy for Londoners on this one.

    Chamberlain-itis runs deep.

    • Well, I wonder if that is the situation for Canadian National Rail and Burlington. We know Burlington and Buffet has benefited (since the time of the linked article) from Obama’s refusal to open the pipeline so transport continues courtesy of Buffet. As for Gates’ investment, not sure. But I don’t think either are in danger given that all these two have to do is pick up the phone.

    • I do not know if this is still the practice among American automakers – but, back in the late 1990s/early 2000s when a car left the factory is was accounted for as “sold.” Automakers rented parking areas and parked car after car in those lots. I saw them myself. No wonder the US auto industry collapsed. I don’t know what became of those vehicles but I would bet many of them where not sold to consumers.

    • Wash watching comedian Heather McDonald’s concert last nite and she was talking about trying to teach her kids…”In China, there are kids with no apps! No apps! They look at a blank screen–how would you like that?” I laughed.
