Insert Word Here.

Cruel Wife told Hacker-Boy that he needed to get ready for bed.

His scowl, closed fists, set jaw, and head lowered – it was man language – I felt a need to translate for CW.

I said (sotto voce):  “You bitch.”

She looked at me, shaking her head.

“You know that’s what he was thinking about you… he just didn’t have the words.”

Which gave us both a good hearty laugh because it’s true.

We’re not so old we don’t remember being kids ourselves.

While we’re on that topic… right hand to God, this was my pre-pre-bedtime-story discussion with Lemurita…

She was complaining about how pizza is ruined.  She says “It tastes like garbage.  Miss Obama really messed up our pizza.”

Of course she is referring to Michelle O’s crusade to decide what is best for our children, as if we couldn’t decide.    And here.

I asked her “You do know why mom and I are conservative, right?” We’ll leave the concepts of conservative, libertarian, republicrats, liberal, commies (oops, already said liberal, didn’t I?), and the merits of each for when she’s older.

“What does that mean?”

“Well, for one thing – among many – it means that we believe that in this country we should have the right to choose what we do and don’t want to eat, that it isn’t up to our government to decide those things for us.  We tell them what to do, not the other way around.”

She said “Well, I think if people are brave enough, they should write to the government and tell them they want our food back.”

“I agree absolutely, Lemurita, with one teensy exception.  You know what that is?”

“No.  What?” she asked.

“I believe that we should never have to be brave to exercise our rights.  If you want to stand on the corner and shout out your opinion or go to the Mall in DC then you have that right because we live in a free country.  A lot of people in the world don’t get to do that, but we do.  It is just a matter of people getting off their butts and saying and doing things and voting.  That’s why we vote, so we can pick the people we want to go to Washington who will do what we want, not – for example – the unelected wife of our President.  Someday we may have a woman President and I’ll say for her husband what I say for the First Lady now – if you want to get involved in our government, run for office and get elected.  Don’t assume because your spouse was elected that it makes you special.”

Lemurita said “She sure ruined our pizza.”

She may be nine, but she’s been given a priceless lesson by the Obamas, which is rule of the people is far less palatable than rule by the people.

The kids take lunches to school now.  No way are we going to be a part of this ridiculous program.

Fox News is getting stupider by the day, I swear.  They posted this pic with the caption:

Emmy Style: Hot or Not?

Seriously?  This is the equivalent to saying:

Ribs: Hot or Not?

I mean, great googley moogley… just LOOK at them.

And here is a real live Public Safety Announcement from Lemur King (really really).

It was pointed out by my late mother-in-law, a chemist, that cooking the dish will not get rid of all the alcohol that you add to it for quite some time.  I was curious and damned if she wasn’t absolutely right.  So if you have a thing about exposure to ethanol in quantity, give it a think before you go tipping up a bottle of vino in your dish or flaming those pears with brandy.

Obama tried his best, Michelle sacrificed her heart out, and Oprah didn’t support the candidate of her choice like she hasn’t from day one as he ran for election.  She was just there, pulling for the children, just like Michelle.

But… but… but… The One can’t fail.   Or can he?

Yes.  Yes he can.

So, the US  – more specifically ChicagoLand – will not rake in the huge bucks to slake the thirst of the pigs at the trough.  Kickbacks and bribes will go without completion.  Dogs and cats will live together.  It will be anarchy.  The children will weep themselves to sleep, silently.

It’s all about racism, you see.

Surely there is no argument in the world that could possibly be strong enough to defeat the designs of The One, so ergo, it must be racism.  He said that the US was ready and eager to assume the sacred trust.   Oh gag me.

Carter will back me up on this one.  I know it.

UPDATE to the poorly done image below… is right below that.

Poorly done graphic, isn't it? Well, it's still satire.

Let’s get one thing straight.  I hate the KlanI think they are diseased vermin.  I hate the thoughts and ideology that they spew.

I also hate this ongoing issue where anything bad happens to a member of a minority, any disagreement, any letdown, anything that doesn’t go their way, that some bright spark stands up and chirps “It’s racism!”   Like Carter.

Now, go look at the UK tabloid’s (online) coverage.

The U.S. president was embarrassed on the world stage after the IOC rejected his very personal bid for the 2016 Olympic Games to be hosted in his home town of Chicago.

Makes you embarrassed – women weeping in Chicago.  And the caption?

America stunned: Two women comfort each other at a gathering in downtown Chicago this afternoon after the city’s bid to host the 2016 Olympics was rejected.

Now, ladies, seriously… there are people being raped, murdered, starved, drowned all over the world – dying in bad ways – and you want to cry because the Olympics didn’t happen in Chicago?  When put in context, you pathetic creatures look even worse, which I thought would be hard to do.  Guess not.  Ladies, you rose to the occasion just by being you.

Supporters gathered in Chicago were equally shocked. Many left the rally in Daley Plaza tears.  – CBS-Chicago

That’s what we need to be remembered for… weeping because we didn’t get to have the party at our place.  What a bunch of children.

Global Warming predicted this.  I’m sure of it.

It was colder this morning in Port Huron than it has been in more than seven decades.

The Port Huron waste water treatment plant recorded a temperature of 32 degrees at 8 a.m., one degree colder than the record low set Oct. 1, 1935… <snip>

Today’s temperature is expected to reach 59 degrees. The average high for Oct. 1 is 67 degrees in Port Huron.
