A Choco-lypse Now!

It would appear that not only is the federal budget running deficits, but we are falling short in the production of chocolate as well!

This is terrible!

Without chocolate, how could Anonymiss award everyone with her extra special yummy chocolate cookies?!?

And worse, what if the shortage extends to other ingredients as well? What  if the only things left to make cookies special are raisins and walnuts and, dare I say it... SNOT?

While I am sure Anonymiss' cookies would be absolutely wonderful with nothing more than sugar, flour, water, eggs and just a touch of luuuuv, chocolate chips are always nice.

And the article mentions that dry weather in Africa is partially to blame, but stops short of mentioning (and you know it's coming) global warming.

But cocoa plants are tropical, so obviously what we need is MORE global warming to increase the arable land on which we can grow the wonderful stuff.

Speaking of global warming:

Fun With #Gruber

So, I've not really done this Twitter thing much. I have this curmudgeonly old man-like aversion to social media. I mean, look how long it took me to make a blog. Just because it was a portmanteau of "Web Log" and I thought that sounded sissy.

Well, the #Gruber thing was too much to resist. So I spent a while last night on the official NP twitter account tweetering zingers. We've had this twit account about as long as the blog, but it's pretty much just been used for broadcasting posts when they go live.

Here are some of the twerts I made:

Shoe Scrapers R Us

Mr. Obama just keeps stepping in it.  He's never missed an opportunity to make a situation worse by lying about it.  Whenever something leaks out, his response is predictable:  "I just learned about this". 

Whenever something Mr. Obama is doing comes to light, his first reaction has never been to address the actual problem.  The only problem he perceives is the potential for political fallout.  Predictably, he waits to see what he needs to do to make sure no responsibility sticks to him.   What happened in Benghazi, what's going on in the VA,  the ongoing saga of the Obamacare farce, Biden's latest gaffe, what the IRS is doing, etc., all news to him when and if it reaches the public' s awareness.

Stop the Madness; Eat More Bacon

Posted in response to this headline seen on a thread discussing Muslim gangs overrunning scores of neighborhoods in Sweden — so dangerous that ambulance workers are demanding military-grade protection to enter these “no-go” zones. The poster’s argument was that the primary need is for “adequate and good police.”

Fun With Metaphors

Any one of these would be an apt metaphor for pretty much anything the Obama administration has tried to do over the last six years (Other than campaign perpetually and avoid responsibility for running the country off a cliff), but the video as a whole is a perfect metaphor for the entirety of the debacle that will be called the Obama years.

The President Has a Plan for Your Health


[direct video link]

To be fair, Gruber was speaking “off the cuff.”

The Fine Art Of Grubering

Jonathan Gruber is referred to as the "architect" of Obamacare.  His approach to selling the idea to Americans is summed up here in a quote by him:
“Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really really critical for the thing to pass….Americans are too stupid to understand…"  
If cynicism and moral bankruptcy were Olympic sports, Jonathan Gruber would have at least two golds locked up. If there was a Hall of Fame for a sport called "Contempt for American Citizens", they would put a statue of him in front of it. In a country run by socialist wannabes who aspire to complete control, where the end always justifies the means and the concept of integrity is a joke, this guy has some stiff competition, but he's way ahead on points.

Nuke the Punchline- Kiss Up Cookie Edition

Today Is Anonymiss’s Birthday. What Should She Do to Celebrate?

Cookies to c64wood for the Picture :)

You gave me so many wonderful suggestions. :) How 'bout I tell you what I did?

I took rodney dill's suggestion to take enjoyment from the mental calisthenics of judging a good Straight Line of the Day from IMAO.

You guys are so funny and clever. I LOVE words. And so, jw, I did HALF of mental health day. I'd have to *be* MENTAL to eat walnuts :)

I was a little under the weather in the morning, so I listened to advice from walruskkkch, Burt, Bob in Feenicks, CrabbyOldBat and tinman: I kicked back and basked in your love. :)

It helped. :)

I was uplifted by the song from rodney dill (which really hit the spot...)

and cheered by the one from Les (which was fun, because it's the same Happy Birthday song I sing with the kids I teach in church!)

I had a very important meeting in the afternoon. One that I have been stressed about for months. Thanks to Iowa Jim, I NUKED THE MOON!! Truly, I don't know how it could have gone better. :D

Shockingly, there were no cookies. But James, c64wood, Burt, Dohtimes, Nucking Futs, walruskkkch, and FredKey, I will definitely make up for that today. :)

tinman suggested Harvey make them.

I heartily agree. :D

And just for HokieGomer and CCO, I'll make brownies and snow cream to go with them. (When Mother Nature sends us snow. But I'm in no hurry :) )

Then, since Da**Cat wants to keep me healthy, I'll eat a tuna fish sandwich. :P I *did* do my Zumba. I'm not a complete slug :)

And my talented friend 4of7 offered to draw me a beautiful snowflake. A girl couldn't possibly feel more spoiled and happy.

Finally, Bob B said I could do whatever I want!!

So I grabbed some of my favorite people and we saw Big Hero 6.
It was endearing and fun and nerdy and made me laugh out loud.

It was an absolutely wonderful birthday.

Thanks to you.

Cookies to My Sweet IMAO Guys!
Since you were all so wonderful to me yesterday, I decided to grant Jimmy's request and post a picture of myself:

We Built It. We'll Fix It


There's something very basic about America that Mr. Obama doesn't understand.  That ship behind him?  Americans built that.  After he's gone, we'll put it back the way it was, no matter how long it takes.
