Obama Is Not That Bright

Obama Is Not That Bright

Mr. Obama has said a lot of unsmart things: there are 57 states; Canada has a president; "Austrian" is a language; America is "20 centuries" old; Arabic is spoken in Afghanistan. He's called the Falkland Islands (Malvinas) the Maldives, and declared it would be "unprecedented" for the Supreme Court to invalidate a law passed by Congress.

Well, Duh!1!!!

Wow.  Forgot how bad it actually is.

Teachers are usually nice people, but they can not - must not - run the state.  It isn't their place.

Pent up snark for a Sunday morning...



Ah, I like these for their wit and wisdom...


Oh, and some questions that need answering...


Wow - good thing we got rid of that idiot Bush!


Just snark today - I deserve a growler....

Indiana: 12-Year-Old Boy Made Honorary Marine Before Succumbing To Cancer-Related Infection, Local Marine Stands Guard At His Hospital Door Entire Night Before He Passed Away…
12-year-old Cody Green has always admired the strength and courage of the marines. At 12:35 Saturday afternoon, it was the Marines admiring the strength and courage of Cody.
Cody had leukemia since he was 22 months old, but beat the disease three times. Although he was cancer-free, the chemotherapy lowered his immune system and Saturday afternoon, he died from a fungus that attacked his brain. Members of the Marines decided to step in and do something.
“They decided Cody, with the strength and honor and courage he showed through the whole thing, he should be a Marine,” said Cody’s father David Snowberger.
Cody was given Marine navigator wings and was made an honorary member of the United States Marine Corps. For one Marine, that wasn’t enough, so he did even more.
“The night before Cody passed, he stood guard at Cody’s door at the hospital all night long for eight hours straight,” said Snowberger.

City of Hope BMT reunion # 4

I love going to these, but it does take a toll.

I didn't see many kids this year, that always weighs heavy on me... So they were either in another section, or not as many kids are getting cancer.

I pray the latter.

Again, I met more WONDERFUL people there.  Seems like there are more and more Multiple  Myeloma patients surviving longer and longer.


Add to that, my two favorite Bone Marrow Transplant Doctors:



I even had an extra cupcake.  Bern would have wanted me to.

(sigh)

I need a nap...

Bylaws

In a civil society (yes, as Heinlein said, an armed one) bylaws would be ignored.

Just wasted 45 minutes when someone objected to having a "co-president" vs. a "president" because it wasn't in section 3.3 or 3.4 of the bylaws.

Really?

They were working hand in glove with each other, a "grizzled vet" and a newbie, working together to pass on the knowledge of the ages for the future.

But Noooo - Ms. "Harvard law" came in to piss on the parade.  She wanted to be president, so 45 minutes of wrangling and -- nope.  No joy.  Oh, they (the good ones) did get elected.

On my second Chocolate Bock, may need a third.
