#1  It's called rationing. And since there is only so much the very shrinking work force can pay....

#2  Wew... Glad I'm still tubeless.

#3  I'll believe the Japanese government is serious about this when they issue single shot pistols engraved with "Do your duty" to each Japanese elder.

#3  Had to suffer through inauguration not-news this morning. They were really trying to gin it up. Two segments:
1. Michelles arms looked awesome - in a dress designed by a fellow known mostly for mensware and ties. Not sure if that is a compliment...

2. 1st vs 2nd inauguration speeches and how far we have come...except that they were the same danged message just the words had been flipped around a bit. If I had done that with an English class report I would have been reprimanded and given an F.

So yeah other than that greatest celebration since Scipio Africanus defeated Libya Carthage.

#4  As I wrote yesterday, it wasn't an "inauguration". It was an uppity Victory Lap. Many years ago the sponsors of my hometown 4th of July parade would invite the Camp Breckenridge, KY Federal Job Corps marching band and dancers. Yesterday's event brought back those memories. (think 1950's hip-hop in colorful band uniforms)

Well if your body
closely resembles the shape of a man's tie ....

#8  Somewhere I saw a photo of Michelle in a dress, juxtaposed to a Romulan in an almost identical dress. Raher remarkable resemblance.

LGBT Obama Inauguration Reactions: 'Pure Euphoria'
During the Inauguration, Meghan Stabler, a transwoman and a member of the Board of Directors for the Human Rights Campaign, was standing on the northwest side of the Capitol steps with a bunch of gay and lesbian people. "We were all waiting for the word gay to come up, and then we heard Stonewall and a few of us had tears in our eyes," Stabler said on Tuesday, her voice breaking up again recalling the moment. "Then we heard gay," she added, "and we just lost it."

#1  Loved it when FLOTUS Michelle dissed poor ole' GOP Fascist = mere or lowly "Limited/Liberal Communist" John Boehner, i.e. "Thank you for supporting my Husband + Big Govt + "Spend, Spend Spend", etc. but we've decided to purge or destroy your Stupid-for-Trusting-Us RINO Menshevik Ass anyway - get out + stay out while you're Chicken Little PCorrect ass is still alive to do so".

The DemoLeft + anti-US Globalists are riding high - they're getting or achieving everything they want be it domestically or as per anti-US OWG-NWO "Globalism", + ARE DOING SO WID THE HELP OF MANY MANY ELECTION-SCARED OR SPECIAL INTEREST RINO-CINO GOP-RIGHT POLITICOS.

NOT UNLIKE POTUS WILSON + UK PM CHAMBERLAIN, THE WORLD WARS HAPPENED ANYWAY NO MATTER THE ORAL OR WRITTEN PROMISES + AGREEMENTS MADE.

The anti-Tsar Bolsheviks are gonna purge or eliminate the anti-Tsar Mensheviks, the Commies the Fascists, the Globalist-Socialists the Globalist-Nationalists, the Totalitarians the Authoritarians, .....etc.

OWG NAU starting in 2015, hence 2014 [State(s) secession?] as dependent on what occurs in 2013 [US-World Econ, China, Iran].

Home Front: Politix
Presidential inauguration: Obama throws down challenge to Republican right
President's uncompromising inauguration address sets out liberal agenda for second term - gun control, climate change, immigration reform and gay rights - as he also vows to protect America's social safety net.

His left hand barely removed from the two Bibles chosen for his ceremonial swearing-in, Barack Obama used his second inaugural address boldly to urge his fellow citizens to make the most of the new hour - the end of two wars and the start of an economic recovery - to honour a shared vision of prosperity, peace and equality.

"My fellow Americans, we are made for this moment, and we will seize it, so long as we seize it together," Obama asserted in a speech that echoed the beliefs he campaigned on last year, ranging from protecting the poor and disadvantaged to gay marriage, from healthcare and immigration reform to climate change.

As such, he threw down the gauntlet to Republicans - there will be no backing down from the principles he believes in.

#1  So the rest of the middle class will be decimated and the already wealthy will be catapulted to never before dreamed of wealth. The takers will forever outnumber the makers and have now discovered how to simply vote themselves more benefits.
Four more of the same, nothing to see here.

#3  But, but, but that was the PLAN !

#4  Damn! I missed Obama's screed. I got interested in a show, "How It's Made", and learned all about making Corn Flakes and Pitted Prunes.

#5  Washingtonian's Sophie Gilbert writes, "To press seated just below the podium, in front of the 'President's Own' Marine Corps Band, it was evident that the band wasn't actually playing during the song—even though band director Colonel Michael J. Colburn was conducting energetically and the band members mimicked blowing into their instruments". Appears Beyonce Lip-Sync the Star-Spangled Banner?"

Fitting and appropriate I'd say. A fake performance all around.

#6  "My fellow Americans, we are made for this moment, and we will seize it, so long as we seize it together,"

All this moment seizing sounds a lot like inappropriate touching.

#7  My fellow Americans, we who were made for such a moment, will now seize whatever we can, as much as we can, while we can, until the system seizes up!

#8  Ignore. Mock. Get on with business.

No other response is needed or appropriate.

#11  Taken from the "LEFTIST/LIBERAL MANIFESTO", as ascribed per FOX NEWS + FOX Pundits this Guam AM.

Iff there was any doubts about the Bammer being Far Left, Leftist-Radicalist, or Leftist/Commie-Anarchist, IT ENDED TODAY VEE HIS OWN REELEX INAUGAURAL SPEECH.

FNC'S "THE FIVE" Segment > FEISTY ANDREA = Didn't get the entire segment, but IIUC Andrea argued that the Bammer's speech IHRO showed his covert but real personal desire for International or States-Diplomatic
"Collectivism" + State-led, State-decided, State-controlled/Managed EQUAL OUTCOMES IRREGARDLESS OF THE CAUSES OR MERITS. THE GOVT- STATE, + ONLY THE GOVT-STATE, NOT THE PEOPLE OR THE VOTERS OR INDIVIDUALS OR FREE MARKET FORCES, ETC. MUST CHOOSE + DECIDE + CONTROL + MODIFY???

There is No God, Life, or Existence save for the State.

US CONSTITUTION???

POTUS Billary hinted at it, but was too PCorrect to affirm it, POTUS BAmmer has now publicly semi-affirmed 1990's "This is Amerika, NOT America".

2017-2025 > POTUS 3rd, 4th, ???-Termer BARACK "DON'T CALL ME FDR OR STALIN" OBAMA OR OTHER PRO-OWG, NAU ANTI-US GLOBALIST-ANARCHIST POTUS SUCCESSOR = D *** NG IT, WHAT PART OF "THIS IS AMERIKA, NOT AMERICA" DID WE ONCE AGAIN N-O-T UNDERSTAND"!

The Bammer, DemoLeft, LeftMedias + anti-US Globies are NOT going to give the GOP-Right any chance to turn the clock back towards anti-Socialist, anti-OWG/Globalism, "Nationalist/Sole Sovereign" US in 2016 or after Jan 2017.

Lest we fergit, 1990's CLINTONISM > "THE US-N-ONLY-THE US MUST BE RESTRAINED AND CONTROLLED ..... THE US-N-ONLY-THE-US MUST ACCEPT OWG + SOCIALISM, OR THE US WILL BE DESTROYED".

And thus Virgina, we learn once again the Left likes Gun Control - EITHER NO ONE HAS GUNS, OR SSSSHHHHH .....CCCCCC ONLY THE LEFT HAS GUNS.

[ROSIE "NO ONE CAN HAVE A GUN UNLESS THEY'RE A FAMOUS HOLLYWEIRD CELEBRITY LIKE ME " O'DONNELL here].
