Last New Year's Eve my wife and I went to a party. As the time neared midnight my wife stood up and said "It's time to get ready. At twelve o'clock I want every husband to be standing next to the one person who has made his life worth living."
When the clock struck midnight the bartender was almost crushed to death.
New Year's Eve is like having sex with my second ex-wife.
10 seconds of pleasure then another year before it happens again.
U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, who oversaw the rollout of Obamacare, resigns from the Cabinet to take a position overseeing e-mail storage for the Internal Revenue Service.On a more serious note, a man I respect greatly - Thomas Sowell - penned a scathing indictment of the media's increasing lynch-mob mentality directed towards anyone who gets in the way of the story they want to report, as opposed to the actual story. An excerpt:
... did you know that, during this same period when riots, looting, and arson have been raging, a black policeman in Alabama shot and killed an unarmed white teenager — and was cleared by a grand jury? Probably not, if you depend on the mainstream media for your news.I wish I could write half as well as either of those gentlemen.
The media do not merely ignore facts, they suppress facts. Millions of people saw the videotape of the beating of Rodney King. But they saw only a fraction of that tape because the media left out the rest, which showed Rodney King — another huge man — resisting arrest and refusing to be handcuffed, so that he could be searched.
Television viewers did not get to see the other black men in the same vehicle that Rodney King was driving recklessly. Those other black men were not beaten. And the grand jury got to see the whole video, after which they acquitted the police — and the media then published the jurors’ home addresses.
A 42-year-old suburban mother of three is accused of having sex with a 17-year-old soccer player.Rah Rah Rah!!!
The inappropriate relationship was uncovered when an Upper Pottsgrove Police officer allegedly found Iris Gibney and the teen naked, having sex inside a parked car.
As the officer approached the car, he saw Gibney performing a sex act on the teen...
The 17-year-old Pottsgrove High School student said he met Gibney at a high school football game earlier this year, police said. She had been volunteering as a "cheer mom" for the cheerleading team that her daughter is a part of.
Gibney works at Victoria's Secret in King of Prussia...Of course she does. Now lots of lonely men have new material for their MILF fantasies.
She was back at work Tuesday night and declined to comment when contacted at the retail store.Not a whole lot she could say, given the circumstances.
Officers responded to a suspicious vehicle call, and found the described vehicle. The occupant ducked down when the officer shined her (!) flashlight his way.You can't make this stuff up...
The man was completely naked and covered with canola oil. He had an object stuffed up his rear end.
He was arrested and charged with public nudity and obscene behavior.
Parents in Farmville, North Carolina want to know why their children were given a Common Core vocabulary assignment in an English class that promoted the Prophet Muhammad and the Islamic faith.
“It really caught me off guard,” a Farmville Central High School student who was in the class told me. “If we are not allowed to talk about any other religions in school – how is this appropriate?”
The Islamic vocabulary worksheet was assigned to seniors.
“In the following exercises, you will have the opportunity to expand your vocabulary by reading about Muhammad and the Islamic word,” the worksheet read.
A spokesman for Pitt County Schools defended the lesson – noting that it came from a state-adopted supplemental workbook and met the “Common Core standards for English Language Arts.”Gee, what a surprise.
“Our school system understands all concerns related to proselytizing, and there is no place for it in our instruction,” the statement goes on to say. “However, this particular lesson was one of many the students in this class have had and will have that expose them to the various religions and how they shape cultures throughout the world.”
I asked the school district to provide me with a copy of vocabulary worksheets that promoted the Jewish, Hindu and Christian faiths.
The school district did not reply.
The Swedish flag has now been banned at a primary school in Sweden. The reason is that the flag may be offensive to certain groups and breaking the law "offensive against ethnic groups."No word on whether or not the Swedish school will suspend students for chewing their pastries into the shape of a gun...
The reason for the ban is a masquerade which was held at the school recently where one of the students chose to paint his face blue and yellow. He also brought a toy gun to masquerade.
The school management reacted very strongly and now prohibits both the Swedish flag and toy weapons.
When he’s not mocking Americans for being Bible-toting, bitter gun-clingers, every chance he gets Barack Obama loves to throw Bible verses around. The problem is that the verses he quotes are usually out of context, woefully misinterpreted, cherry-picked and distorted to support a socialist worldview, and occasionally completely made-up.To be fair, barry played golf on Christmas Eve, not Christmas. On Christmas Day "the Obamas spent Christmas morning opening presents and singing carols and then spent the afternoon at a nearby beach." barry and michelle also visited American troops at Marine Corps Base Hawaii in Kanoehe Bay.
Listening to the president play the reverend on more than one occasion would lead one to believe Jesus Christ was a Marxist whose only objective was to further Obama’s Gospel of Collectivism.
During Obama’s first term, former Obama spiritual advisor Joshua DuBois led the White House Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships. On a daily basis, Joshua sent Obama inspirational verses on his Blackberry. In 2013, the former pastor turned consultant said that the “biggest untold story is that [Obama] is a president of deep and abiding faith who values his walk with Christ and uses that walk to motivate the work that he does in the world.”
DuBois... recently explained why the pious one never misses a golf game or foregoes a vacation and has golfed 208 times in office and counting, but has only managed to drag himself to church 18 times, including just one Christmas.
According to Joshua, Obama’s absence from church is actually self-sacrificial, because although the president desires to worship in the house of the Lord every Sunday just as he did when he attended Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s Black Liberation Theology-based church in Chicago, Obama’s utmost concern is to avoid distracting other churchgoers from celebrating the Lord.
DuBois didn’t elaborate, but it sure sounds as though Obama, unlike other churchgoing presidents, is of the belief that if Barack is in the house, not even God Almighty can compete for the undivided attention of the flock.

We need to have an honest discussion in this society about how we treat police and how they treat us.Go here to read the entire piece. Good stuff.
They cannot see civilians only when they are committing crimes or in danger.
And we cannot see officers only when we are in danger or we misbehave.
We have to see each on our streets. In our churches, in our stores and know each others' names.
Certain parts of society need to learn that in areas of this country the police don't have a great reputation for honesty and integrity.
And certain parts of society need to see police as part of their community.
And we need to look at each other beyond seeing a badge dividing us.
We need to look at each other for who we are: brothers and sisters, countrymen all.
And here's a little tough love for both sides of the divide. If you're an officer and someone on your squad is doing something immoral, you speak up. You don't just owe it to us, you owe it to yourself. And if you think the police are keeping you down, stop generalizing. We all know there are bad apples in every profession. Don't confuse the good guys with the bad guys.
Tiny Ava Urrea and enormous Menelik Watson produced one of the more heartwarming stories of the football season.I hope Santa brings that little girl and her family everything they want.
The 4-year-old was a special guest at the Bills-Raiders game Sunday...
Ava was born with hypoplastic left-heart syndrome. Her heart didn’t develop correctly and she has basically half of a heart. Her first open-heart surgery came when she was just five days old. She since has had two more open-heart surgeries and more than 20 surgeries in her young life. There is no cure.
“We are enjoying each moment and praying,” Amy Urrea said, noting how emotional she got last month when Ava turned 4.
“Every milestone is such a big deal,” she said.“We’re making memories for our family.”
One astounding memory came thanks to Watson. The Raiders’ offensive tackle, who was out again Sunday with an ankle injury, met the Urrea family Friday, when Ava was the honorary captain for practice and had lunch at the facility. He had his game paycheck in his hand and decided on the spot to give it to the Urrea family.
“I felt like if there was anything I can do I wanted to do it,” Watson said. “I have a daughter of my own, who is 6. It just felt right to me.” ... He handed Edward an envelope.
“I couldn’t believe it,” Edward said, upon opening the envelope and seeing its contents.
The Urreas hope to use the surprise as seed money to start a foundation for other families dealing with Ava’s condition ... Doctors have told Amy and Edward that Ava won’t survive past her early teens, but they also know that expectations and advancements in science could change her prognosis dramatically in the coming years.
The Urreas had to buy an extra suitcase to bring home all the Raiders’ gear and gifts from the weekend. Ava was decked out in black from head to toe. Some of Watson’s generosity might help pay for a new costume from the movie “Frozen,” the gift that Ava hopes Santa will bring her this week.
The 17-year-old son of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel was the victim of an assault and robbery, a spokeswoman for the mayor told CNN on Saturday.My schadenfreude stems not from the trauma experienced by Zach, but rather from the fact that under his asshole father Chicago has turned into a contender for Murder City USA. Gangs and violent crime are running rampant in the City of Broad Shoulders, while
"Yesterday evening, Mayor Emanuel's son, Zach, was assaulted in a robbery during which his phone was stolen," spokeswoman Kelley Quinn told CNN. "He sustained injuries that required medical treatment, but was able to join the family for a long-planned trip."
... the incident occurred when the victim was approached while walking near his home "by two unknown male offenders who grabbed him and went through his pockets, taking his phone and then they fled the scene."
