      I even loved how the Easter Bunny put his/her hand over his/her heart during the national anthem, this morning! That was a cute photo, too.

    Ed Henry, Knoller, Chuck Todd, John Boner, Trump, etc all secretly wish they were little Donovan.

    Socialist!!! Took another kid’s egg & “redistributed” it to the crying “taker” kid, instead of handing it over to Koch bros to fatten their accounts further. What is this world coming to? Impeach Obama!!! Socialist socialist socialist!!! πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

    Eek. Accidentally saw one minute of Throw Up with Chris Hayes before I realized it was on. Hope that minute didn’t count toward his viewership.

    Chris and Luke and Chuck and Jake should all run off and do a road tour for Scholastic Books or something, based on their overall maturity level, averaged, of about 10, no offense to real 10-year-old little scholars.

        I remember this happened four to five years ago……it’s still devastating that a man, a father, would give a eight year old an uzi to play with.

          It’s a sickness. Why would a parent want to expose their child to a deadly thing like an uzi? I wouldn’t even want a child to be able to recognize one, let alone handle it. What a sad set of circumstances.

      Harrisburg suspect’s gun permit violated law

      Less than a year after he was convicted of assaulting a neighbor, Anthony Charles Hardy received a concealed carry permit from the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office, an approval that N.C. law prohibits.

      Hardy – who authorities said fatally shot two of his neighbors before killing himself on Friday – received a concealed carry permit in September 2005, shortly after a prayer for judgment conviction for misdemeanor assault and battery, state records show.

      According to N.C. law, a sheriff must deny a permit to an applicant who has been found guilty, received a prayer for judgment continued, or had a sentence suspended for a violent misdemeanor.

      Cabarrus County Chief Deputy Paul Hunt said the employee who would have approved the permit application has since retired.

    gop today announced that it is changing its emblem from an elephant to a condom because it more accurately reflects the gop’s political stance.

    A condom halts production, destroys the next generation, protects a bunch of pricks, and gives you a sense of security while you’re actually being screwed.

    Damn, it just doesn’t get more accurate than that.

    Everything after 1:17 is this guy Chris’ stuff until the the last minute or some when he goes back to Newman’s original theme. Pretty cool!

    Can someone tell me how I get my notifications, when notifications isn’t letting me get to my notifications? I see the orange square, but nothing happens when I click on it.

    • April 2, 2013 at 1:01 am

      Haha, just realized I will never know if anyone replies because I Can’t Get My Notifications.

        πŸ™‚ The notifications button i very finicky. Right now, mine is refusing to consistently switch off after I look at messages.

      Thank you, again, Maryl for the SP link that is referenced in this tweet:

      Rest well everyone (or Good day to those already well into 2 April).

    A little off the beaten track here, but I have been enjoying this woman’s writing a lot. Rachel Held-Evans has a fascinating blog and just wrote a book, “A Year of Biblical Womanhood”, which I highly recommend. This is a great post about her decision this year for Lent to take her hate mail and turn it into origami. I will remember this the next time I am tempted to blast back at someone posting hateful stuff.

    Oops. Two days to catch up and nobody’s home. Oh well, I’ll be back to 12 hours behind in no time.

    A not so happy Tuesday (snowing like crazy), but there is still this wonderful place to come to and all the amazing, talented folks who lift my spirits and make my day by sharing and believing!

    All hail, Ms. Chips, for creating this amazing place that has saved my sanity from the inanity of the (crapforbrains) MSM!!

    To Amk, LP, Yardarm, LL, VC, the Carols, Theo, Mary, Dudette, Hopefruit, JOB, UT, HK, FayPay, and so many others………..My eternal gratitude.
