Just FUN!

Christian and Kermit: What they have in common


See Dick. See Dick dumb. See Dick losing it.

Actual quote from 'da Dick' re: Michael Scott:

"The credit card, that's all it was. It wasn't much, when you look at it," Daley said. "But, again, that doesn't -- I don't condone it. He can be accountable. If he was lying, he'd be accountable for it."

Hey, Dick!

He's no longer accountable. Remember, HE'S DEAD!

Truth or Dare?

OBAMA: We had nothing to do with the Cornhusker kickback

EMANUEL: Yes we did

Hours before his embattled boss gave his first State of the Union address, White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel contradicted President Barack Obama’s claim made just two days before that he had nothing to do with the much maligned deal to get the vote of Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Nebraska) for the Senate’s healthcare bill just before Christmas.

Speaking to ABC News’ World News Tonight anchor Diane Sawyer in an exclusive interview on Monday, Obama denied being involved in what has come to be known as the “Cornhusker Kickback”.

A lot of people think you must say at the end of the day, this is not who I was in 2008, these deals with Nebraska, with Florida…

OBAMA: "Let’s hold on a second, Diane. I mean, I think that this gets into a big mush. So let’s just clarify. I didn’t make a bunch of deals. There is a legislative process that is taking place in Congress and I am happy to own up to the fact that I have not changed Congress and how it operates the way I would have liked. So that’s point number one."

In an interview with CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric on Wednesday, Emanuel flatly stated that he and the Obama administration were heavily involved in the Cornhusker Kickback as well as the other deals that provoked outrage from the public and helped Republican Scott Brown win the U.S. Senate seat formerly held by the late Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts.

As you know, people were pretty disgusted by deals that were made up on Capitol Hill like the one given to Ben Nelson to win his support. If the White House was so involved, was this done with your blessing? But…

"Look, we were involved in the legislation all the way through."

Were you involved in that?

"Yeah. I’m not gonna go through all of it…"

But in the Ben Nelson deal?

"We were helpful in getting the bill off the Senate floor. And in retrospect the things – as I said to you just earlier, things you woulda done different."

To repeat what Obama told Diane Sawyer about the Cornhusker Kickback:

"So let’s just clarify. I didn’t make a bunch of deals. There is a legislative process that is taking place in Congress and I am happy to own up to the fact that I have not changed Congress and how it operates the way I would have liked."

The mainstream media has thus far ignored Obama being exposed as a liar by his own chief of staff.

A few conservative outlets have noted a Washington Post article from December 20, 2009 that reported the involvement of Emanuel and other White House staff in the Senate negotiations.

With Emanuel himself confirming the Obama administration’s involvement with the Cornhusker Kickback, Obama has some explaining to do.

Well, he would if he were a Republican president.


Rahm is not long for this world.

Upon looking older and more partisan...

Obama Admits Partisanship at GOP Retreat; Forgets About

Building on Real Clear Politics observation by Tom Bevan:There’s been a remarkable amount of coverage of President Obama’s appearance at the House Republican retreat today, but I haven’t seen anyone focus on the President’s rather stunning admission about the Democrats’ health care legislation:

President Obama stated at the GOP retreat in Baltimore:

“The last thing I will say, though — let me say this about health care and the health care debate, because I think it also bears on a whole lot of other issues. If you look at the package that we’ve presented — and there’s some stray cats and dogs that got in there that we were eliminating, we were in the process of eliminating.

"For example, we said from the start that it was going to be important for us to be consistent in saying to people if you can have your — if you want to keep the health insurance you got, you can keep it, that you’re not going to have anybody getting in between you and your doctor in your decision making.

"And I think that some of the provisions that got snuck in might have violated that pledge.”

Spewing, just spewing!

And when will this man learn to speak in a proper grammatical manner, and throw to the wayside the 'Negro dialect' he thinks the American citizens desire (Kool-aid, anyone?)!

On a roll today...

Don't think I've ever posted so much on one day, but...just had to show you this.

The tall building is the 'Farcroft', on Fargo Avenue between Sheridan Road and Lake Michigan. Its apartments are empty now, after the magnificent building was purchased by James N. Pritzker. Total rehab will begin soon, I was told.

Here's a shot of the fireplace in the Farcroft lobby.

The entire building is quite a fascinating piece of architecture, and I am certain Mr. Pritzker (et al) will do it justice.

Downtown Evanston is at the center of the horizon.

Just wanted to share this lovely view with you, my few readers, and to thank my Creator for all the blessings bestowed upon me, as three and a half years ago, I was a quarter-inch from death, again.

Though I am no longer being given credit as co-founder (and SEEDER) of Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce, I have no regrets regarding my resignation from that entity.

I have a certain high standard of ethics...the rest of the board apparently does not. Simple as that. In fact, one board member, whom I shall thank so much for the "UNCONDITIONAL LOVE", has resorted to name-calling in my e-mail. Don't ya just love insecurity?

And, the Chamber still owes me over $1,000, for which I shall have to wait a year to be repaid.

In addition, Bill Morton has a more-than-significant personal debt with me...which he continues to ignore.

Rogers Park News, Updated

On January 12th, I posted these:

I noticed, the other day (but had no camera with me), that this VAST IMPROVEMENT has been made by Lake Shore Rehab.

Well, two outta three ain't bad!

Happy Days Are Here...Again?

Taxpayer-funded drinking...ain't it great?

No wonder she looked so whippy at SOTU! Or should that be SOT, YOU?

Wilkommen, Bienvenu, and sooo Strange!

I am beginning to think...

...that Michelle's fashion "faux pas" problem is equated with the fact that she is trying to tell Barry she WANTS ANOTHER CHILD. She continues to accentutate that protruding abdomen, especially revealing in outfits like the above retro piece.

Boob belts, high-waisted dresses...mmm, mmm, mmm. Now that she is 46, she should really stop thinking about having a child, wouldn't you think? Or, is it just from snarfing down all that Wagyu beef and cherry pie?

Perhaps her Momma can help out, chanting around some chickens?

Need to hear from Rasmussen, NOW!

Wax ON!

Wax OFF!

Just havin' some kinda FUN today, it being Saturday and all!

The next time...

...anyone tries to explain how great life is in Cuba under the Castros (or should I call them 'castrattos'?), have them visit this site:

See what Fidel's communism has wrought!

Miss and Mrs. Wagyu, who are currently esconced in the Waffle House, invite you, too, to become a member of this Marxist society.

Please visit this site, but only if you have not just eaten. It drove me to many tears. Sooo sad!


Care to comment, heavily-costumed, self-appointed 'holy' man? (You know who you are!).

Or, will you accuse me of 'racism' AGAIN?


...I love my CS4 Photoshop. I use it to enhance my photographs. It's better than a darkroom!

But should it be used for this?

"Newsweek has a feature on their Web site that shows the amount of photo retouching goes into making celebrities the fakes they are.

When I saw Madonna, I was scared, ser(i)ously scared.

She looks like a nasty, skanky grandma that running a Nevada whore house--not that I have been there or anything.

This is clear(l)y a woman who has been around the block... 11 abortions last time I checked.

What's(t) that tell ya.

Real sweet woman there.

Her last abortion happened because she thought it would hurt her career.

That may be the most selfish thing I have ever heard in my life."

From Wiki

Madonna was born in Bay City, Michigan at 7:05 AM on August 16, 1958, to Madonna Louise (née Fortin), who was of French Canadian descent, and Silvio Ciccone, who was a first-generation Italian American Chrysler/General Motors design engineer, originating from Pacentro, Abruzzo, Italy.

Madonna is the third of six children; her siblings are Martin, Anthony, Paula, Christopher, and Melanie. Through her mother, she is a descendant of Zacharie Cloutier and Jean Guyon du Buisson.

Madonna was raised in the Detroit suburbs of Pontiac and Avon Township (now Rochester Hills).

Her mother died of breast cancer at age 30 on December 1, 1963. (She was named for her mother).

Then her father married the family's housekeeper, Joan Gustafson, and they had two children; Jennifer and Mario Ciccone. Madonna commented on her father's second marriage: "I didn't accept my stepmother when I was growing up ... In retrospect, I think I was really hard on her."

She attended St. Frederick's and St. Andrew's Elementary Schools (the latter is now known as Holy Family Regional School), and after that West Middle School. There she became known for her high GPA - and for her "unusual" behavior, particularly a kind of an underwear fetish:

Madonna performed cartwheels and handstands in the hallways between classes, dangled by her knees from the monkey bars during recess, and thought nothing of tugging her skirt up over her desk during class so that all the boys could see her briefs.

Later, she went to Rochester Adams High School, becoming a straight-A student and a member of the cheerleading squad. Madonna received a dance scholarship to the University of Michigan after graduating from high school.
She wanted to take ballet lessons and convinced her father to allow her to partake the classes.

Her ballet teacher persuaded her to pursue a career in dance, so she left the college at the end of 1977 and relocated to New York City.

Madonna had little money at that time and hence lived in squalor, working as a waitress in Dunkin' Donuts and with modern dance troupes.

Of her move to New York, Madonna said, "It was the first time I'd ever taken a plane, the first time I'd ever gotten a taxi cab. I came here with $35 in my pocket. It was the bravest thing I'd ever done."

While performing as a dancer for the French disco artist Patrick Hernandez on his 1979 world tour, Madonna became romantically involved with the musician Dan Gilroy, with whom she later formed her first rock band, the Breakfast Club, in New York.

She sang and played drums and guitar for the band and lived in a converted synagogue in Corona, Queens. However, she departed from them and formed another band called Emmy in 1980, with drummer and former boyfriend Stephen Bray.

She and Bray wrote and produced dance songs that brought her to local attention in the New York dance clubs. DJ and record producer Mark Kamins was impressed by her demo recordings, so he brought her to the attention of Sire Records founder Seymour Stein.


Just another nice Catholic girl growing old, huh?

Blame it on Glinda?

Thanks to Disney, your child may become ill!

'Princess and Frog' children's necklaces recalled for cadmium

Federal consumer safety regulators on Friday announced the recall of The Princess and The Frog pendants because of high levels of the toxic metal cadmium, an unprecedented action that reflects concerns of an emerging threat in children's products.

The recall affects two products, about 55,000 items in total, sold exclusively at Walmart stores for $5 each. The action was taken voluntarily by Rhode Island-based jewelry company FAF Inc., which did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, which disclosed the recall, had been testing for cadmium in children's metal jewelry for several weeks in response to an Associated Press investigation that reported high levels of the known carcinogen in the Disney movie-themed pendants and other children's metal jewelry imported from China.

In reaction to the AP's reporting earlier this month, Wal-Mart Stores Inc. had pulled three items from its shelves, including the two recalled Friday — a crown pendant with UPC number 72783367144 and a frog pendant with UPC number 72783367147.

The items had been on sale at Walmart stores since November, in conjunction with release of the animated movie.

Soon after Wal-Mart pulled the items, the CPSC's chairman advised parents to throw away all pieces of inexpensive metal jewelry, noting that children who chew, suck on or swallow a bracelet charm or necklace may be endangering their health.

Consumers can return the two recalled items "to any Walmart store for a full refund or a free replacement product," according to the recall notice.

Wal-Mart did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The recall marks the first time any consumer product has been recalled in the United States because of cadmium, which recent research also suggests can harm brain development in children.

The CPSC said in a statement that there have been no reports of cadmium poisonings associated with the pendants but that its investigation into other pieces of jewelry "remains open and active."

The Walt Disney Co., which produced the movie, said: "Disney supports the decision by FAF and the CPSC to recall the jewelry."

The Fashion Jewelry Trade Association, which represents the industry, had no immediate comment.

Lab tests conducted on 103 pieces of low-priced children's jewelry as part of AP's original investigation found 12 items with cadmium content above 10% of the total weight.

One item consisted of 91% cadmium by weight.

Pendants from four "The Princess and The Frog" necklaces ranged between 25 and 35% cadmium, according to the testing.

At the time, Walt Disney said in a statement that test results provided by FAF Inc. showed the item complied with all applicable safety standards.

But in the case of cadmium, unlike lead, there have been no specific levels that would automatically trigger health risks to children or a push for a recall.

As part of its investigation, the CPSC bought pieces of the jewelry cited in the AP reports, tested them in the agency's lab and found high levels as well.

Based on the Federal Hazardous Substances Act, agency staff determined that the items posed a health risk to children, according to agency spokesman Scott Wolfson.

The agency then approached FAF, which cooperated with the investigation and agreed to the recall.

I have a dear friend, whose grandfather told him years ago, "Do not trust the yellow man."

So many contaminated toys are produced today in China, a Communist country, where life is not respected. And we continue to buy their junk, under the guise of trademarks like those of the Disney corporation.

Cheap junk...purchasing any of it places our children, our FUTURE, in harm's way.
