Wth? If that isnt a colosal waste of time. Why would overturning those convictions even be considered? She already got off more than she EVER should have!
Father O'Malley has been preaching at his church in Ireland for so long, he decides to take a vacation. He's never been married and is curious about what Americans endure in everyday life, so he decides to go to the States before it's too late.
He hops on a Nevada bound plane and arrives at the airport in Las Vegas. While he is exiting the plane, someone in the airport runs up to hm and exclaims, "Elvis! Good Lord, it's Elvis! I always knew you weren't dead, Elvis! How have you been?"
Father O'Malley looks at her and says, "Get outta me face. Can you not see I'm not Elvis? I don't look a bit like him." He then moves on to his taxi waiting outside. He hops in the cab and is a little upset, so he tells the cabby, "Take me to my hotel and step on it."
The cabby turns and says, "Sure thing, sir – Oh my God! It's Elvis! I knew you weren't dead! I happen to be your number one fan! It's wonderful to see you!"
"Shut up,. I am not Elvis! Now turn around and drive!" snaps the Father. So, the cabby speeds up to the hotel where Father O'Malley gathers his things and walks up to the hotel check-in counter.
"Oh my Lord! Oh, dear! It's you!" screeches the hotel clerk. "You're back, Elvis! I always knew this day would come. We saved everything just the way you like it! Free cheeseburgers, peanut butter and banana fried sandwiches, masseurs, complimentary ho okers and a full liquor bar! I am so glad to see you're back!"
Father O'Malley looks at the hotel clerk, curls his lip and says, "Thank you. Thank you very much!"
@bobcat, thank you for the early day laugh. I just know what will come, but I will keep it to myself my friend. I hope this posts as I am being blocked on the Giffords thread. Take 2 Now Take 3. @cnn, serious umbrage is being caused.
Laughing out loud but but being blocked!
Trying to get a thank you laugh out to you my friend but you know how this network rolls lately.
Thanks @bobcat. @chrissy I agree.
Good morning folks.
President Obama has decided to nominate Hagel as Def.Secy & that goes to show that this President can if he so decides, stand up to foreign lobbies and their minions here.
Good day to you saywhat
Pesident Obama, I'm proud to say, is surrounding himself with like minded individuals, ie, not being so quick to pull the trigger on war and showing resistance to the Israeli lobby. We have now, and always will, have Israels back, but the fact that thier influence on our political system is diminished under our current administration shows that our nation can actually think for itself. In my bunch of years on this planet, I don't remember this ever being the case before.
Brennan's nomination on the other hand is a matter of concern. His dishonesty & extremism is well known.
