Settled Law

I wrote this up a while back, but never ended up posting it. But it still seems timely today, so I figured what the heck.

Amusingly, it was written when the Obamacare exchanges were just opening for "business," and failing horribly at every aspect of what they were intended to do. Today, the story isn't much different: Obamacare is still slowly crashing. It's like watching a blimp crash: "Oh no! We're going down!............We're still going down!........ We're STILL going down!!!!......Would anyone like a cup of tea?........WE'RE STILL STILL GOING DOWN!!!!!!

Anyway, that said, here's the original post:

I thought that with the Obamacare meltdown in full swing, and Queen Nancy and others out there still letting us know that It's. The. Law. and that it's "Settled Law," that I might take a look at other laws that were "Settled Law," at least until they weren't.

Remember, it's only "Settled Law" when the "Progressives"  and democRats like it, otherwise, it's only a suggestion.

So, bearing this in mind, here are some "Settled Laws" throughout history. (Warning: One pretty gruesome image after the jump (or maybe two))

Movie Notes:The Peanuts Movie

I know you are all just dying to see this movie, and frankly, I was right there with you. But, chez moi, we have an entire hutch filled not with the "GOOD" dishes, but with Peanuts memorabilia, so truthfully, there was no avoiding it: I packed the kids of to my mom's house and took my very own Little Red-Haired Girl to see The Peanuts Movie.

Now, I know what you're thinking: Was it as bad as we all expected it would be? Did it poop on all the awesome holiday specials we remember from when we were kids? Was it a raucous cacophony of rude humor, obnoxious kids and fart jokes?

Sorry to disappoint you, but the answer is: NO. This movie will not make the list of movies that are so bad they're good. It won't join the growing number of "kids" or "family" movies that traffic in cheap humor about bodily functions. It won't even scar your memories of A Charlie Brown Christmas or It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.

What it is, is simply wonderful.

Ted Cruz Rocks

Simple statement of fact.

He's conservative, bright, well-educated, has a good back-story, gets under the skin of democRats everywhere, including the president, gets under the skin of establishment Republicans, who really need their skin got under, and he can do this:

How can you not vote for a guy who can do that?

It can't be done!

Prime Suspect

The University of Missouri Police Department is asking students to report “incidents of hateful and/or hurtful speech or actions.” Offended parties are asked to provide a summary of the incident, a description of the those involved, vehicle descriptions, and if possible, a photo of the alleged culprits.

A quick thought on the perils of government responsibility

By and large, we know who this Administration's criminals are, and we know who will be unjustly NOT prosecuted for one heinous offense or another.  But government is made up of many, many positions which continue on from one administration to another.  The "underlings", if you will, although they're not all far down the ladder.

Happy Halloween

In honor of this fine, fine Halloween, I would like to share this sadly nostalgic song by Heywood Banks, who is awesome, and family friendly.

And two jokes that I'm stealing directly from Kevin Downey, Jr. which are much funnier aloud and especially when he tells them, but I couldn't find a video, so there you go...

Nuking Pumpkins

It’s the scariest time of the year. That’s right — impending November elections, the end of Daylight Saving Time, gaudy Christmas decoration sections at big box stores...oh, and Halloween.

In the spirit of Samhain, I’ve reprised a theme from last year, featuring a fresh display of ghastly graven gourds, using non-government-approved patterns inspired by the Department of Energy’s clever “Indoctrination Through Hijacking Traditional Seasonal Activities” program.

Warning: these are very scary, and should not be viewed under the influence of pumpkin spice.

Great Tunes:What Makes You Beautiful -One Direction

Okay, so not really a great tune, but a tune nonetheless. Obviously this one isn't in my permanent playlist (or any of my playlists, for that matter), but I heard the song for the first time from someone who didn't realize it described them perfectly, and I realized that with a few warps and twists, it could describe Hillary! perfectly. So, though it calls to mind people and events best forgotten, I decided to take one for the team and claw the lyrics into something more amusing, for your edification and enjoyment.

What Makes You Horrible

You're a drunken wreck,
Corrupt as heck.
You're churning guts when you 're talkin' your dreck.
When you screw up
You cover up
You think the gender you are is enough.

Presumed Enemy-of-the-State-to-be

In the #DemDebate last night, Hillary said the enemies she’s most proud of making are the Republicans.

She Said It

Here's a doozy from Hillary, again on gun control. And this one was uncorked right here in Northeast Ohio.

"I know politics are hard," she said. "I've got the scars to prove that. And I know when it comes to gun violence ... a lot of people just basically say, 'You know, it's just too hard, we're not going to try this again.' Well, I am going to tell you, I am going to keep going. I am not giving up. I am not going to sit by while more good people die..."
 I can think of four who might disagree.

He Said It

Following the despicable shooting at the community college in Oregon, president Obama had this to say:
"There is a gun for roughly every man, woman, and child in America.  So how can you, with a straight face, make the argument that more guns will make us safer?"
 Well, maybe if we could have managed to get just ONE of those guns into the hands of the security officer on the scene...
