Good Friday Morning P4A Kids…
It’s about time I get to see Todd in action. Sarah is great and all…but SERIOUSLY!!! It’s about time for some Todd! ….just sayin’
Colorado wildfires in Teller County just west of Colorado Springs are being set by a serial arsonist. Word is that as of late last evening they may have a suspect. I was kind of hoping that someone would have had a clear “shot” at him.
Mom is doing well! She is getting around pretty good and is able to do most things for herself in terms of taking care of herself. I am at the “big house” this weekend doing dog duty. But reinforcements are on the way. She gets her staples out Monday… OUCH! Has not left me with much time to post.
Regarding Fast and Furious….Let’s go back in time shall we as to NOT EVER FORGET all the players? Now the “weeper of the house” wants some credit. Gosh could it be that Boehner would be “embarrassed” because he wanted Issa to drop the whole thing in the first place? Could it be that Boehner is just as clueless at running “HIS” house as Obama is at running “OUR” house? This headline has me spitting my water across the room. Boehner would not know the term “hard if a shovel hit him in the face! He needs to go! Screw You Boehner!
Onto the Headlines:
Yeah…sure. Should he be elected..with his track record he will “tackle it” AFTER his term(s) is over!
Damn…I always thought OUR motto was “LIVE FREE OR DIE“….who knew?
I am NOT going to argue at all! Call me chicken! Plus he is right!
Congrats to the Heat!
And because it’s a dogs life …after all!
