“I brought home a new breed of dog; it won’t drink anything but Tennessee whiskey. They call it a Jack Daniel’s Terrier.”

“Read the Vent about the Romneys’ (Howells’) get-together in the Hamptons. You are confused. That was the Kerrys (John). Oh, but wait, he is a Democrat, so it’s OK for him to be rich. Sometimes I forget which set of rules the liberals are using — theirs, or the ones for everyone else!”

“So the taxpayers paid $103 a day or $1,100 for the deputy’s food costs on Sheriff Joe’s Hawaii birther baloney. So, why didn’t he take some food from Tent City? After all, the Sheriff earned the nickname ‘Baloney Joe’ after his 35-cent sandwiches with salsa verde sauce.”

“Why don’t we contract out Chinese athletes for the Olympics. I’m sure they would work very hard and bring back lots of medals for us and it would be a lot cheaper than sending U.S. athletes.”

“When a company moves overseas in the name of tax breaks and in the name of a global economy the mess left behind is called outsourcing by Democrats, and entitlements by Republicans. Whatever you want to call it, American taxpayers have to clean up the mess. Shouldn’t getting up and walking away from your mess be considered an entitlement?”

“I wonder how many people who complain about the Olympic clothes have contributed to the Olympic Committee financially? It is not a tax-supported organization. Just people like me who send in a check. They need to make the dollar go as far as it can. You might question the downfall of the USA garment industry failing because the unions drove business out of the country. People do it here all the time. Like when they choose WalMart over Sears, for example. You stretch your dollar where you can.”

“Sadly, we see another mass shooting. This time in Colorado. Too bad there wasn’t an armed citizen in the movie theater to stop this crazy man from carrying out this massacre. If there was any doubt in anyone’s mind about the need for a gun-carrying public, just remind yourselves that there are no mass shootings at country western concerts.”
