"Chicken Poodle Soup?" ...From Paris

My mother used to tell me that if I didn't have anything nice to say, I shouldn't say it.

(Oh dear.  You may want to look away Mom.)

I read on DailyBrisk today that Obama ate dog meat.  I believe fellow blogger Iowa Hawk said it best:  "Chicken poodle soup"

Now.  Back to our regularly scheduled programing...

Young Barack Obama ate dog meat



"With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chill peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy)."~~Barack Obama in his book, 'Dreams Of My Father'.

Oh, THOSE Three Stooges.

(I'm just getting my rant muscles limbered up for the upcoming presidential campaign. As you may have guessed, I don't give the Big Three networks much credit for being unbiased in their coverage. Most of the time they might as well wear Obama campaign shirts and tops as they give their reports. Maybe they'll surprise me this time around...)

Argentina's leaders are acting like fascists




Argentina will seize natural-gas producer YPF Gas SA as part of plans to boost control of its natural resources, two days after seizing oil producer YPF SA. (YPFD)

“We supposed it was a unit of YPF, but it isn’t, it’s a separate company,” Senator Anibal Fernandez said today in Buenos Aires. “Both companies need to be expropriated.”

Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner seized control of YPF, the country’s largest energy company, on April 16, and sent a bill to nationalize the stake. Argentina said Spanish parent Repsol YPF SA (REP) was responsible for declining Argentine oil and gas output since 1998. Senators will vote on the bill April 25 after senate committees approved it today.

The $5 trillion Dollar Man gets a plug from FLOTUS

Daniel Halper:

Michelle Obama made a remarkable claim when talking up her husband, President Barack Obama, at a campaign event earlier today in Nashville, Tennessee.

"I am so in," Michelle Obama said toward the end of her remarks. "I am going to be working so hard. We have an amazing story to tell. This president has brought us out of the dark and into the light."

The crowd of nearly 450 folks applauded as the first lady likened her husband to a Jesus-like figure.

Another pundit said: "Romney had a dog on the roof of his car; Obama had dog on the roof of his mouth."

It really says something that you have to retire from the Senate to get anything done

HARRY REID SHUTS DOWN BUDGET PROCESS IN SENATE

Featured imageThe Democratic Senate has not adopted a budget in three years. This is not only flagrantly irresponsible, it is a violation of federal law. Outgoing Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad, who is retiring at the end of the year, apparently felt pangs of conscience, because he decided it was finally time for his committee to mark up a budget. He announced that the committee would do so, starting tomorrow. A »

Another Grim Milestone… Obama Adds $5 Trillion to US National Debt

Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, April 18, 2012, 11:57 AM

On July 3, 2008 — the day before Independence Day — Barack Obama said that adding $4 trillion in debt was irresponsible and “unpatriotic.

Then what does adding $5 trillion in debt make you?

Barack Obama has added $5 trillion to the US national debt in a little over three years.
CNS News reported:

In the 39 months since Barack Obama took the oath of office as president of the United States, the federal government’s debt has increased by $5,027,761,476,484.56.

Although he has served less than a term, Obama is now the first American president to see the federal government’s debt increase by more than $5 trillion during his time in office.

During the full eight years that George W. Bush served as president, the federal government’s debt increased by $4,899,100,310,608.44. (Rising from $5,727,776,738,304.64 to $10,626,877,048,913.08.)

The $5,027,761,476,484.56 that the debt has increased during Obama’s presidency equals $16,043.39 for every one of the 313,385,295 people the Census Bureau now estimates live in the United States.

Now THAT's a train

A big dress for a big day! Bride wears $8,000 wedding gown with a 502metre train that weighs nearly 50kg

Beaming: The happy couple shows off the amazing dress which has a train measuring more than 1,700ft long

Bride Li Kuo, 25, wore a wedding dress with an astonishing half a kilometre long train, which weighed nearly 50kg and cost almost £5,000, in Hubei, China. It took more than 20 bridesmaids to help steer the trailing frock to the altar. She chose the length specifically because in the local dialect the pronunciations of the numbers '5' '2' '0' sound the same as the words 'I' 'love' 'you'.
