Snoop Dog should join the Fantastic Four. The Thing would no longer be the only one stoned and they could change their name to the High Five.

Happy Friday Miss C!

In George Washington’s time long courtships were not advisable. Communication further than a shout was slow and unreliable. People died younger and often suddenly so, git ‘er done.

Codpiece flopped?
Try sidenafil, that may help stop ‘em from flopin’.

If you watch the video about the mark on the screen, pay attention at the one-minute mark.  Notice how the instructor's hand goes behind the screen while our attention is on the on-screen character taking the light saber from the video clip – and then when the saber is 'tossed' to him he brings his hand out, holding the light saber that had been stashed behind the screen all the time.

This is classic stage-magic misdirection, and even when you know how it's done, you've still got to admire how well he makes it work.

I am actually in shock over the LIBERALS ARE ALWAYS RIGHT post. Talk about Orwellian! Democrats supported the South in the Civil War. Democrats and unions blocked immigration from the Chinese in the 1800's to the Jews after WW 2. (Just google FDR Project M, which was recently declassified).FDR's policies prolonged the depression by 7 years. Democrats supported segregation (including Biden who still openly praises segregationists). Truman dropped atomic bombs on a country that had been trying to surrender. The JFK administration ordered the torture and assassination of the President of South Vietnam and his son for saying he did not want U.S. troops on the ground in South Vietnam. LBJ lied to get us into Vietnam. Both LBJ and Kennedy were Democrats. Bill Clinton lied to get us into Iraq. And by the way. One of the biggest deliberate lies Democrats say, is that Jessie Owens was snubbed by Hitler. He was not. FDR refused to allow Owens in the White House. Don't believe me? Try to find a photo of the two together. Liberals are always on the wrong side of history. Don't believe me? Ask the people of Afghanistan about Obama's "right war" and surges.

I seem to recall a president named Bush got us into Iraq and Afghanistan. Japan didn't want to surrender; they wanted to negotiate peace on their terms. And we all know the parties flipped on racism in the early 1960s.
