State legislators challenge the current interpretation of the 14th Amendment.

Swing voters should ask themselves these questions, but many won't.

Lone Star Howdy's Infodel!

Anywayz ... thanx for the tip's/ link's, and I do want to point to point out in my opinion 3 that stood out to me as far as "info" ... First the piece's by Marla Konovalenko (? spelling), I havent even finished that yet ... one one Hell of a compilation of piece's!

Second to the outstanding work and compilation done by Leslie of Parsley's Pics ... this all was one excellent read to me ... she just done one Hell of a job on that!

Third ... Jack Jodell's piece on 10 question's voter's must ask, I only fantasize at time's that folk's would do some serious thinking when they vote, especially this election round in particular. I AM NOT anti right either ... I am just saying ... this is a big mistake if they regain a majority, I am sure they feel confident in their agenda as far as economic's ... but I sware to Satan ... their proposal's CANNOT work, if what they are saying is real! I'll leave it there .... THINK

Crotian Time's ... heh, heh, heh, heh, heh ... that dont suprise me ... even dead folk's in America have been asked to prove they made no income! :)

Thanx also for the MSNBC Street View Cam info ... damn importante!

Frum's Forum ... Teabag's $100K cruise expense .... Well ... I got to give it to them on that ... at least they are being fiscally conservative a tad more than run of the mill republican's ... who would probably have spent $3 million!

Fixin to attend my sunday service, which is sitting my fat ass on the sofa, stuffing my ugly mug with Doritos and Salsa, downing a couple ice cold bottles of Shiner beer, and watching goddamn NFL game's all bloody afternoon on the tele!

Later Dude ....

She seems to be up to speed on a lot of developments. There seems to be plenty of interest in life extension in Russia -- maybe because so many of them are atheists and don't believe in an afterlife? I'm adding that blog to my regular reading.

I learned a lot.....You mean "bipolar" doesn't mean you're attracted to polar bears of both genders?:-)

Fixin to attend my sunday service,

I think even teabaggers attend the Church of the NFL.

One last funny thing that came to mind concerning Teabag's and the NFL ...year's back we worked with this real hardass right winger we just called Bubba ... but he alway's had to go to church on sunday, or his ole lady wouldnt give him any, he went to a Baptist church. One day since he loved football ... I asked him since they go to the 10:00 am service ... what if the sermon get's long and you dont get back for kick off (similar wording) ... he said ..."It dont man ... in our church the preacher know's when it's time to shut up, we let him know that from the getgo ... at 10:45 he better put a lid on it, cause we need to stop by the beer store first then drive back to the house!" :)

Thanks for the hat tips. I'm glad we can share news!

I have to agree -- that was the worst (and funniest) ad placement ever.
