About The New Weblog Look

I know it sucks.

And I'll be working on it Thursday.

Lesson to be learned: Don't ever click on a button unless you're sure you know what will result.

To make matters worse, Blogger won't accept my old HTML code anymore.  Which is strange.

So I'm sifting through a few thousand characters trying to figure out what it is that violates the coding rules.

Keep an eye out.  This ain't over till it's over.

Caption of the Day

From Hot Air:

Objective.  Blind as a bat.  Delusional.

Same difference.

Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?

It wasn't supposed to be like this:
It’s the Math, Stupid!: Seven Devastating Facts About 2012
By Wynton Hall, Big Government 
As we enter 2012, the presidential candidates would do well to wrap their minds and messages around these seven mathematical facts: 
● Every day, the U.S. government takes in $6 billion and spends $10 billion. This means that every day the federal government spends $4 billion more dollars than it has. 
● The real unemployment rate is a jaw-dropping 11 percent. 
● Every fifth man you pass on your way to work is now out of work. 
● College graduates are now 34% less likely to find a job under Obama than they were under President George W. Bush 
● Every seventh person you pass on the sidewalk now relies on food stamps. 
● The ravages of the Obama economy now mean that more Americans live under the federal poverty line than at any time in U.S. history since records have been kept. 
● Under President Barack Obama, every fifth child in America now lives in poverty. These are not partisan jabs, manufactured statistics, or ideological swipes. These are mathematical facts.
Well, that's about as depressing as it could be.

Obama, by the way, wants you to know he thinks he's done a swell job over these last three years and will be asking for another four.

The numbers aren't bad enough, I suppose ...

Anti-Americanism Will Do That

What a shock:

Rasmussen: Democratic party affiliation at all-time low

Trying to destroy this country with taxes heaped upon taxes, with regulations strangling job growth, with an all-out effort to make electricity bills skyrocket (and bankrupt utility companies ...), cap and tax, subservience to foreign dictators, assaults on our freedoms of speech, religion, and the right to keep and bear arms ...

I'm surprised there's a Democratic Party at all these days outside of Havana.

I Thought He Was There To Govern

Guess not.

President Barack Obama will waste little time getting back in front of voters following a 10-day Hawaiian vacation spent largely out of the spotlight.

From electioneering to golf to electioneering to vacation to electioneering.

I coulda swore we sent him to Washington for something other than that.

Definition: 'Jumping The Shark'

For the love of God:

Kathy Griffin strips down during New Year's Eve Times Square celebration, makes Anderson Cooper uncomfortable 

CNN.  The most pathetic name in news.


The painful truth:

The threat of President Obama and his determination to create an entitlement state, combined with the dismal economy, have voters eager for a bold conservative leader.

The Romney luck was that no such obvious reformer got into the race. 

Newt is bold. But all over the place when it comes to policy and ideology.

Rick Perry looked to be bold. But we had to throw him back in the lake and wait for him to grow up.

Then there was Herman Cain.

At a time in America's history, when our country so desperately needs radical reform, we're going to end up having to choose between Mr. Hopeless & Changeless and ... Mitt Romney.

What's the price of gold this morning?

I Think Someone's Had Too Much To Drink

Another actress doing politics.  Oh, my.

Actress Tweets That If Obama Loses, Police State 'Around the Corner' 

Sounds kinda bitter.

Not sure why.

Guess the millions we gave her so that she could play the clown on the big screen weren't enough.

Or maybe Ellen Barkin just got old.

Something princesses like her are not equipped to deal with.
