Yesterday, 8:03 pmCongressman Trey Gowdy...
Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) issued a strong warning to Democrats at the House Judiciary Committee meeting Wednesday, saying that one day they'll regret supporting the "president's failure to enforce the law" and "cry out" for the enforcement of the Constitution.
You may benefit from the president's failure to enforce the law today, but I'll make you this promise: There will come a day where you will cry out for the enforcement of the law. There will come a day where you long for the law to be the foundation of this Republic. So you be careful what you do with the law today, because if you weaken it today, you weaken it forever.
Gowdy followed the strong words Wednesday with an appearance on Greta Van Susteren's "On The Record" (video above), in which he expanded on his warning, saying, "I just don't like it when either side plays games with the rule of law, because it is the most unifying, equalizing force we have in our culture.
The representative also noted to Van Susteren that the president deliberately delayed his announcement of his executive amnesty program until after the midterm election, suggesting that Obama knew he was overstepping his constitutional authority.
Yesterday, 7:38 pmPlease pass this on...
n Thursday, Dr. Ben Carson came out swinging at this year's CPAC 2015 conference. He denounced what he called the "PC police" bullying people who support traditional marriage and oppose abortion, reports LifeNews.
"I refuse to give into the PC police," he said.
"If you're pro-life, you're 'anti-woman.' If you're pro-traditional family, you're a 'homophobe.' If you're white, and you oppose a progressive black person, you're 'racist.' If you're black and you oppose a progressive agenda, you're 'crazy.' And if you're black and you're pro-life and you're pro-traditional family, they don't even know what to call you. You end up on some kind of watch list for extremists!" he said.
Earlier in the month, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) issued an apology to Dr. Carson after placing him in their "Extreme File" alongside the KKK and Neo-Nazi groups for having the audacity to criticize Obamacare at the National Prayer Breakfast in 2013 and support traditional marriage. While the SPLC did remove Carson from the file, they concluded in their apology that he holds views "most people would conclude as extreme."
"We shouldn't submit to the PC Police, and to people who are trying to control us by intimidation and by IRS audits and by messing with your job," Carson said. "The only reason they can do that is because we sit silently by. That's what they want us to do."
Carson also had some harsh words to share about Hillary Clinton as well.
"I'm not ready for Hillary," he said. "I'm ready for a country that puts our Constitution on the top shelf. And for those that have any doubt, that includes the Second Amendment. I'm for a country where we take the restraints off the most dynamic economy the world has ever known."
Carson's statements received thunderous applause and standing ovations.
February 22, 2015, 9:43 pmTo My Young Friends...
I very quietly confided to my best friend that I was having an affair.
She turned to me and asked, 'Are you having it catered'?
And that, my friend, is the definition of "OLD"

Reporters interviewing a 104-year-old woman:
'And what do you think is the best thing
About being 104?' the reporter asked.
She simply replied,
'No peer pressure.'

I've sure gotten old!
I've had two bypass surgeries, a hip replacement,
New knees, fought prostate cancer and diabetes
I'm half blind, can't hear anything quieter than a jet engine,
Take 40 different medications that
Make me dizzy, winded, and subject to blackouts.
Have bouts with dementia. Have poor circulation;
Hardly feel my hands and feet anymore.
Can't remember if I'm 85 or 92.
Have lost all my friends. But, thank God,
I still have my Florida driver's license.

An elderly woman decided to prepare her will and
Told her preacher she had two final requests.
First, she wanted to be cremated, and second,
She wanted her ashes scattered over Wal-Mart.
'Wal-Mart?' the preacher exclaimed. 'Why Wal-Mart?'
'Then I'll be sure my daughters visit me twice a week.'

My memory's not as sharp as it used to be.

Know how to prevent sagging?
Just eat till the wrinkles fill out.

It's scary when you start making the same noises
As your coffee maker.

These days about half the stuff
In my shopping cart says,
'For fast relief.'

THE SENILITY PRAYER:
Grant me the senility to forget the people
I never liked anyway,
The good fortune to run into the ones I do, and
The eyesight to tell the difference.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
I don't want to brag or make anyone jealous or anything, but I can still fit
into the socks I wore in high school.

breaking story from ESPN Sportscenter..........2/16/2015
Pete Carroll, former head coach of the Seattle Seahawks, is reported to be very near to signing on as a special consultant to The Pope in Vatican City. The Pope looks to recruit Carroll to be a spokesman for the Catholic Church because he is the first man in history that made 100 million people jump up and yell "Jesus Christ!" at the same time.
February 18, 2015, 6:28 pmJobs for ISIS...
My, oh my. This is why President Obama's AUMF must be rejected. State Department Deputy Spokesperson Marie Harf actually said "we cannot win this war by killing them [ISIS], we cannot kill our way out of this war" yesterday on MSNBCS's "Hardball." Instead, her solution is a jobs program and training for all those jihadis. Even host Chris Matthews was shocked. 'Nuff said.
What a moron.
February 16, 2015, 6:27 pmHow will history judge Obama...
Seriously, When history takes a step back and reviews the time of President Barack Obama with an unbiased eye � they will say, "<snip> Americans were really stupid back then!"
Will historians lament; "How did it happen? It couldn't be because he was black? Please tell me that Americans were smart enough to look at man/character instead of his skin color. Tell me that they didn't vote this guy in because of this "white guilt" stuff I hear..."
How can Americans vote a leader in to the highest, most honorable of positions based on skin color. Why didn't they learn his history? Why didn't they.. well, there's been more than one leader voted in lawfully whose past should have had some giant red flags.

February 14, 2015, 12:46 pmLaugh for the Day...
If you've ever worked for a boss who reacts before getting the facts and thinking things through, you will love this!
Arcelor-Mittal Steel, feeling it was time for a shake up, hired a new CEO. The new boss was determined to rid the company of all slackers.
On a tour of the facilities, the CEO noticed a guy leaning against a wall. The room was full of workers and he wanted to let them know that he meant business.
He asked the guy, "How much money do you make a week?"
A little surprised, the young man looked at him and said, "I make $400 a week. Why?"
The CEO said, "Wait right here." He walked back to his office, came back in two minutes, and handed the guy $1,600 in cash and said, "Here's four weeks' pay.
Now GET OUT and don't come back."
Feeling pretty good about himself, the CEO looked around the room and asked, "Does anyone want to tell me what that goof-ball did here?"
From across the room a voice said, "Pizza delivery guy from Domino's."
February 13, 2015, 7:06 pmSex Argument...
A Japanese couple is having an argument over ways of performing highly erotic sex:
Husband: "Sukitaki. mojitaka!"
Wife replies: "Kowanini! mowi janakpa!"
Husband says angrily: "Toka a anji rodi roumi yakoo!"
Wife on her knees literally begging: "Mimi nakoundinda tinkouji!"
Husband replies angrily: "Na miaou kina Tim kouji!"
I can't believe you just sat and tried to read this -- as if you understand Japanese!
You'll read anything as long as it is about sex.
You need serious help!!! Sometimes I worry about you.

The Nun took all the young children in too a big room where there was a lot of food on a very long table , so they could eat
At the end of the table where they started , first thing on the table was a large plate of beautiful red apples
And besides these apples the nun had placed a sign that said ...... " Only take one..........God is watching "
As the children went on down the table , at the other end of the long table , there was a large plate of brownies
Some little boy that had done went that way , left his own sign by the brownies
The sign read .......... " Take all you want...........God is watching the apples " Smile

Gotta love those grand-kids ..
I was eating breakfast with my 10-year-old Granddaughter and I asked her,
What day is tomorrow?"
Without skipping a beat she said, "It's Presidents Day!" ..
She's smart, so I asked her "What does Presidents Day mean?" ..
I was waiting for something about Obama, Bush or Clinton, etc.
She replied, "Presidents Day is when the President steps out of the
White House, and if he sees his shadow, we have another year of Bull <snip>."
You know, it hurts when hot coffee spurts out your nose.
February 8, 2015, 2:08 pmBob gets a text message...
Bob gets a text message.
Hi Bob, This is Alan next door. I'm sorry neighbor, but I have a confession to make to you.
I've been riddled with guilt these past few months and have been trying to pluck up the courage to tell you to your face but I am at least now telling in text as I can't live with myself a moment longer without you knowing.
The truth is, I have been sharing your Wife, day and night when you're not around.
In fact, probably more than you, particularly in the mornings after you've
left for work.
I haven't been getting it at home recently, but that's no excuse I know. I can no longer live with the guilt and I hope you will accept my sincerest apologies.
My wife has known for some time now and I've promised her that it won't happen again. Regards, Alan.
Bob, feeling anguished and betrayed, immediately went into his bedroom, grabbed his gun, and without a word, shot his wife twice in the head, killing her instantly. He returned to the lounge where he poured himself a stiff drink and sat down on the sofa. He took out his phone to respond to the neighbor's text and saw he had another message:-
Hi Bob, This is Alan next door again. Sorry about the slight typo on my last text, I expect you worked it out. Anyway, but as I'm sure you noticed, my predictive text changed 'WiFi' To 'Wife'. Hope you saw the funny side of that. Regards, Alan
