Sunday Contemplation (22 Dec 13)

.

—  Maybe we are the only people, but we don’t give a swimming  bass’s butt about what Phil Robertson said to GQ magizine (completely forgetting the question of why GQ is interviewing Mr. Robertson [a noted connoisseur of modern fashion sensibilities] in the first place)

.NDAA…if you don’t know what it means….LOOK IT UP!!!

.NYC mini-dictator Michael “Obey ME!” Bloomberg has banned E-cigarettes.  Probably because mini-mike hates anything bigger then him.

.  I know some wing-nuts hate Taylor Swift, but….

AWESOME!!!

just saying.

Humpday History (18 Dec 13)

 

On this day in history…

 

218 B.C.  —  The Battle of the Trebia, where Hannibal’s Carthaginian troops crushed a Roman army under Tiberius Sempronius Longus.  [Second Punic War].

 

1271  —  Kublai Khan renames his empire Yuan, marking the official start of the Yuan Dynasty in Mongolia and China

 

1888  —  Cliff Palace, in Mesa Verde were re-discovered by Richard Wetherill and his brother-in-law. 

 

1898  —  Gaston de Chasseloup-Laubat sets the land speed record in Jeantaud electric car, at the blazing speed of 39.245 mph (63.159 kph).  Later on the same day de Chasseloup-Laubat beat that record with a top speed of 57.65 mph (92.78 kph), although this record would only stand a month before Camille Jenatzy would shatter it.

 

1932  —  In the first ever NFL playoff game, the Chicago Bears defeated the Portsmouth Spartans (now the Detroit Lions) 9-0 in Chicago Stadium on a modified 80 yard long field. 

 

and a political one, just for shits and giggles

 

2012  —  President Obama stated [in reference to ObamaCare] bluntly,

“If you like your insurance, you can keep it.  Period. 

If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.  Period.” 

This turned out to be a lie, repercussions appear to be few to none. 

1 in 3 Americans still believe the President. 

[expect more lies from our ‘leaders’.  What a prediction, eh?]

· They wanted so much to believe Barack Obama was somehow better and different from other ultra-leftists that they simply took him on faith.
· They ignored his anti-white writings in his books.
· They ignored his quiet acceptance of hysterical anti-American diatribes by his minister, Jeremiah Wright.
· They ignored his refusal to explain years at a time of his life as a student.
· They ignored his ultra-left record as a “community organizer,” Illinois…
