    We were out target shooting.

    Some morons were screwing around and shot at us, my BIL was shot in the back.

    I had about 5 shots over and into the sand berm that I was lying behind-yes, I was cowering.

    I didn't turn 21 until a few months after JFK was inaugurated. I would have voted for him.

    Lovely,

    This is our Sputnik Moment.


    No, We have had Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, Voyager, Skylab, Vikings, the Shuttles, the IES, the two Mars Landers and a whole arse full technology that WE PIONEERED and BO is going to use a POS Russian satellite as an example?


    Or, is he harking back to the days when we got our rears handed to us by someone else and we go into freakout mode and start building stuff, willy nilly?

    LOL,
    I just looked SM up and it funnier than what I wrote.

    Sounds like he's on board with the Old Soviet Union being more bitchin' than we were.....

    I loved loved loved the line about the winner of the science fair should be cheered as much as the winner of the super bowl.

    Grace,
    I know who he is, I was making a joke.

    I thought he may have it in him to try and steal BO's thunder by putting on a sobfest.

    He was fighting the "Stand and Clap" device the previous Speaker of the House installed. She couldnt feel normal prompts because of her unusual amount of Botox treatments, so she had a broken broom handle with splinters installed to prompt her like a Jack in the Box. Unfortunately Boehner could. The libs where to cheap to remove Pelosi's splintery piece of wood prompter.
    I have a HUGE SIG!!!!

    I thought that was a great statement. (And I didn't even come close to winning the science fair!)

    My mom has a friend who was on the school board for a long time and she said the process for what to do with a poor-performing teacher is a challenging one. There are apparently a lot of "layers" to work through. I don't think I could be a teacher in this day and age. There are kids with complex family situations, learning disabilities, asthma and diabetic students, peer pressure, bullying, state and federal testing... My hat is off to teachers. But I've heard people say they could never be a nurse, but I like it.
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

  14. Well...I am shocked, shocked, shocked!

    The guy in the purple tie (and since when is purple an appropriate color tie for a politician???) is NOT wearing a little jeweled American flag in his lapel...I have magnified the photo - he is wearing some other emblem but NOT a little American flag.

    We all learned a couple of years ago that failing to wear a tiny bit of jewelry in the model of an American flag PROVES the politician is a commie/solicalist/anti-American/marxist.

    So WHO is this guy?

    (and yes, the veep is also missing his jewelry in the shape of an American flag - he probably left it on his pjs...)

    I think I would have loved to be a nurse aside from being on your feet all day!
