Probably not wise to go to the girlfriend you just dumped when you develop a bad toothache. Hell hath no fury and all that....
A Polish woman is facing three years in prison after she removed all of her ex-boyfriend's teeth during dental surgery just days after their breakup.
 "I tried to be professional and detach myself from my emotions," Anna Mackowiak, 34, told the Austrian Times. "But when I saw him lying there I just thought, 'What a bastard' and decided to take all his teeth out."
Marek Olszewski, 45, reportedly showed up at Mackowiak's dental office complaining of toothache just days after he broke up with her. She then allegedly gave him a "heavy dose" of anesthetic, locked the door and began removing all of his teeth one at a time.
Never rile a woman who has access to heavy sedation and power tools. You are looking for trouble, if you ask me.


Both Democrats and Republicans are the problem. Both parties are in up to their necks in corruption. That should come as no surprise. How much corruption might surprise you.

What also is not surprising is that even at corruption the Republicans suck and the Democrats are 1,000's of times better.

Republicans can't figure out how to "take back America" and they can't really figure out how to just take it. The Democrats have taken it and they aren't giving it back.  We're doomed.


This dog has obviously been through the public school system.


Good morning, kittens!

Gorgeous day here. OH!....and Obama ate a dog!

Did you honestly think I was going to just let that go?  So soon?  Not hardly.

Amazing high school drill team from Japan.  These kids are no slouches. Of course they won the world championship.


Starting to feel nostalgically like the Clinton years.

Andrew Breitbart died suddenly. We were quickly assured by the media that his death was of natural causes; Andrew suffered from heart disease. Okay. He was a Type A personality, driven and intense. I can see that, even though the circumstances around his death were the stuff of Robert Ludlum novels. Late night drinking with strangers at a neighborhood bar he was known to frequent. A solitary walk back home along quiet streets. Stricken suddenly, he collapses...But okay.

Now a coroner in the LA County Coroners Office is dead of suspicious causes.

I don't believe in coincidences.  Especially when they are so freaking coincidental.


We'll work on forgiveness later.


Almost anything's possible with tactical technology.

Sandra Fluke need not apply. Health insurance benefits not included.


Perhaps best known for the sandbox full of cat shit in our front yard and our “not-in-compliance-with-village-health-ordinance” colony of rescue bats, we are now prepared to add one AWESOME nanny to our team. Are you that special someone who can do all the holistic parenting we would like to, were it not for our crippling student loans, a Groupon for a pasta-making class, and some stuff we want to do on the computer later?

Some of you have probably seen our ad before. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY as we’ve updated many of our requirements. Experience and a lawsuit have taught us to be really, really specific and to disclose when we are filming you in the bathroom or implanting a tiny tracking device under your skin. Read on...

If the perfect candidate doesn't answer the ad, there is always the possibility one could hire these young girls. I'm betting they haven't been employed for awhile.


Or maybe not. One of the most basic truisms of science is that it is hardly ever settled. The entire realm of science, no matter the specific area of inquiry, is based on the fact that we are ASKING QUESTIONS! To say something is settled in the area of global warming is more than idiotic. It is deceitful. That would be to imply that we know everything about it and there are no more questions, no uncertainty about our conclusions. Those are the words of a fanatic, not a scientist. But they are the words of our very own self-serving, fat, stupid, struggling ex-Vice President. Sorry, Al Gorge. You said it, not me.

The really interesting question is not how stupid fat people can get hold of a microphone and spout nonsense. We have too many examples (e.g. Roseanne Barr(the frig), Michael (lots)Moore, Al Gorge, but how scientific information is filtered through the media and reported by our self-appointed Mr. Smiths so that it can be easily fed to us without us getting upset tummies and developing gas.

Truth isn't important for the little people. It's too difficult to grasp.

True to form, the overwhelming majority of press outlets failed to report the juiciest global-warming gossip of the week — a change of heart on the issue by one of the world’s most celebrated environmentalists. Also true to form, the press failed to report the most profound science story of the week — a startling theory that not only absolves humans of blame in global warming but sheds light on another taboo subject: shortcomings in Darwin’s theory of evolution.
Unlike their coverage of the political establishment or the corporate establishment, journalists will rarely be skeptical of the scientific establishment. Perhaps these ­unskeptical journalists don’t question scientists out of a belief that scientists’ pronouncements are free of the self-interest that taints politicians or corporations. Or perhaps these journalists, who are themselves rarely scientifically literate, blindly accept the views of scientific authority figures because they lack the training to assess rival views. Or perhaps these journalists fear being subjected to ridicule if they buck politically correct views. Whatever the reasons for journalistic deference to dogma in science, the victim is the information-consuming public, which at best is kept in the dark, at worst is duped.

This crossed my "desk" a few days ago and I considered not posting it because it's so freaking obvious that it's hardly a story. It's certainly not a surprise. Our Beloved Leader is better than every person on the planet. Of course he is. That's why we voted him in to the presidency. He was going to turn back the tides and heal our broken souls.

Now we learn that he finds it impossible to hire anyone to do anything better than he can. The sheer audacity of this dope troubled by his own otherworldly perfection is painful to observe. I mean, we all strive for perfection, don't we? But we fall so miserably short. To know it has been achieved in ONE MAN, and to realize that it is so isolating and frustrating for him, is heartbreaking.  Jim Geraghty brings the tragic story to us via National Review Online. Get your Kleenex.

It appears one of the great challenges that President Obama has had to overcome in office is that no one around him is as good at their job as he is.
From Jodi Kantor’s The Obamas, page 66:
Obama had always had a high estimation of his ability to cast and run his operation. When David Plouffe, his campaign manager, first interviewed for a job with him in 2006, the senator gave him a warning: “I think I could probably do every job on the campaign better than the people I’ll hire to do it,” he said. 

Truly it is lonely at the top.

I feel his pain.

I just wish I had caused it.


Play like you're a Democrat! It's easy and FUN! Hot Air has this week's Obamateurisms for you to vote on.

Well, Polonius did say brevity is the soul of wit. Jonah Goldberg proves his words true as he narrows down the countless cliches of liberals (do they argue in anything ELSE?) to a mere five.

One of the great differences between conservatives and liberals is that conservatives will freely admit that they have an ideology. We’re kind of dorks that way, squabbling over old texts like Dungeons and Dragons geeks, wearing ties with pictures of Adam Smith and Edmund Burke on them.
But mainstream liberals from Franklin Roosevelt to Barack Obama — and the intellectuals and journalists who love them — often assert that they are simply dispassionate slaves to the facts; they are realists, pragmatists, empiricists. Liberals insist that they live right downtown in the “reality-based community,” and if only their Republican opponents weren’t so blinded by ideology and stupidity, then they could work with them.

Good stuff. Pour yourself a lovely bourbon, like Woodford Reserve, and enjoy.



They generally don't like being eaten.


Mark Steyn, in his best Steynian style, gives us the gory details on the ruff and tumble Dog Wars, where one candidate vacationed with his dog and the other ate his.  Guess which one is considered "cool"?

Yes, kittens, it is "cool" to be the Exotic Other. It is NOT cool to be American As Apple Pie.

The exploding cigars are revealing not merely of Democratic hypocrisy but of a key difference in worldview between liberals and conservatives. Jeremy Funk and Governor Schweitzer reflexively believe that their dog-eating polygamy-scion is different from the other guy’s dog-transporting polygamy-scion. This is nothing to do with young Barack being six or ten years old and meekly eating whatever was put in front of him. He was 34 years old when he wrote the passage quoted above and ten years older when he recorded the audio edition. And, as both versions make plain, he thinks it’s kinda cool, and he knows that to the average upscale white liberal it has the electric frisson of the exotic other.
Axelrod is right. Obama’s appetite for dogs isn’t as critical as his appetite for spending and statism. But it was part of his cool. “Mitt Romney isn’t cool,” declared Brian Montopoli of CBS News this week in a story headlined “Can Mitt Romney Make Boring Sexy”? For economically beleaguered Americans, the more pertinent question is: “Can Barack Obama Make Cool Affordable”? It’s not just that Obama ate the dog, but that he’s screwing the pooch.

Love -- LOVE -- the picture of peonies (one of my favorite flowers) at Caitlin's blog, Sacramento Street. Gorgeous!


Like a 100-watt INCANDESCENT lightbulb.  Remember those?  Yeah...the good old days.

"David Thompson, Culture, Ideas & Politics" takes us back through his archives.  Every morsel is bloody brilliant.

No, really. Pour yourself a drink, sit down in your most comfortable chair, and settle in. He is one of the best reads on the internet.

A San Francisco “nude-in” reveals more than intended.
Some of you may register a whiff of disingenuousness in exhibitionists accusing their critics of being repressive and stuffy. Exhibitionists may be eager to dispense with clothing in incongruous locations – say, a traffic island in the middle of a busy intersection - but they desperately need an audience, preferably a clothed one, and preferably one that’s embarrassed, inconvenienced and unwilling. Those indulging in their kink for being noticed are, in effect, saying: “Hey, you. Look at my bollocks. I SAID, LOOK AT MY BOLLOCKS RIGHT NOW, YOU UPTIGHT CONSERVATIVE PRUDES!” And while I doubt many readers here are prone to fainting at the sight of withered genitals and subsiding buttocks, they may conceivably object to being made an accomplice to someone else’s psychodrama. Imagine you’re in a supermarket queue with a basket of groceries. Is the thought of some old bloke’s tackle hovering near your lettuce or freshly baked baguette a pleasing one? And isn’t that the whole point of “radical” exhibitionism - to shock, totransgress - to make others feel uncomfortable? 
Laurie Penny champions Arts Council-funded dirt relocation. It’s vital for “social progress.”
It’s so unexpected. Pretentious taxpayer-funded noodling is vital, says beneficiary of pretentious taxpayer-funded noodling. Because Laurie believes in folly, see, ideally when done at someone else’s expense and regardless of their objections. And because without the Arts Council and its politically generic freeloading caste, all human progress would simply grind to a halt. Besides, grumbling about the extortion and misuse of other people’s money - half a million pounds of it – is, she says, anodyne and inconsequential. Presumably, taxpayers shouldn’t trouble themselves with how their earnings are expropriated and pissed away by their betters. Artists, it seems, are visionaries, not made of mortal flesh, and so sacrifice is necessary - yours, of course, not theirs. Laurie illustrates this point unwittingly and with her usual grandiose sorrow: “Is this what human progress has come to? Fighting over the scraps of money left as the markets crumble?” Oh, the indignity of not being given all the money you want just because you want it.
The public funding of vandalism? The Guardian approves. 
The millionaire “anti-capitalist” Banksy would have us believe that “crime against property is not real crime,” though residents and business owners whose property has been defaced and who’ve been left with the cost of cleaning and repair may take a rather different, less sophisticated view. Especially given that such crime tends to affect people who earn considerably less than Banksy. Lest we forget, graffiti, like broken windows, can act as a signal to other vandals and predators. And the residents of graffiti-blighted neighbourhoods, which can subsequently become blighted by other forms of crime, may find little comfort in the notion that their own taxes could soon be funding and legitimising more of the same.
Slip into something comfortable and peruse the greatest hits


It's a fact. Happiness, for me, is an elusive thing. I am too conscious of the struggle, too intent on the goal. Truly happy people seem to have a capacity to simply exist, to immerse themselves in the moment without any judgment. Not me.

I need to practice letting go.

Be the elephant.


Even when you're the galaxy bad ass...



That...and you never need to worry about matching your socks.


He's from Chicago. Did you expect different?

This is the guy who said to get in their faces and that if they brought a knife, he would bring a gun. Didn't think he would get even worse when his re-election seems shaky? If you are surprised by this, you are stupid.

Excerpted from The Wall Street Journal: Try this thought experiment: You decide to donate money to Mitt Romney. You want change in the Oval Office, so you engage in your democratic right to send a check.
Several days later, President Barack Obama, the most powerful man on the planet, singles you out by name. His campaign brands you a Romney donor, shames you for “betting against America,” and accuses you of having a “less-than-reputable” record. The message from the man who controls the Justice Department (which can indict you), the SEC (which can fine you), and the IRS (which can audit you), is clear: You made a mistake donating that money.

Are you worried?

You should be. You should be freaking outraged AND worried.

The only people who could possibly still be supporting this asshole are other assholes.  Just saying....


According to a recent poll, conducted by Fox News (that rabid right wing conspiratorial racist network), a whopping 65% of Americans think Michelle Obama is just dandy.  Only 28% think she is less than super.  While those numbers are frankly jaw-dropping, the one that really amazes me is the 7% who are unsure. Really? Unsure what you think after almost four years of this?

Such stately composure. Representing our country and all...

Or, when she's dressed up...perhaps something more like...this?

Who are you 7% who can be unsure about the most polarizing First Lady in the history of American politics?  Honestly, even in today's world of Sandra Fluke's and Sarah Palin's, the role of the First Lady is to quietly, elegantly, with grace and style, represent the American people. The First Lady must be seen as dignified and supportive of her husband's position as president at all times. She is not president. She is not a policy maker. She is not employed.  She is a freaking WIFE! The last First Lady who was this vulgar was Hillary Clinton and for many of the same reasons. Hillary did not perform her role as First Lady with grace either. As she is reported to have said, "WE are the President!"  Really?

THIS, my friends, is what a classy First Lady looks like.


Oh, for f*&k's sake.

Dumb and Dumber

Obama dumbs down speeches as campaign heats up, WFB analysis shows

Even when they write an ENTIRE ARTICLE on the obvious vacuousness of Obama's speeches, they have to explain that it's not HIM that's stupid, it's his audience.  It's us.  He's brilliant.  We just can't keep up.
Obama’s student loan remarks seemed to fit the bill for a campaign speech. According to the Flesch scale, which measures reading difficulty on a grade-level scale, Obama’s oratory has been on a steep decline from the 2008 campaign.
The college speeches represent a low point for Obama, who spoke to Europeans gathered in Berlin using 9th grade rhetoric.
Elvin Lim, an associate professor of government at Wesleyan University and the author of The Anti-Intellectual Presidency: The Decline of Presidential Rhetoric from George Washington to George W. Bush, is not surprised that Obama has dumbed down his language.
“This is a guy who is a constitutional law professor, but the structure of the presidency is such that you have to go anti-intellectual,” he said.  (EMPHASIS MINE BECAUSE THIS ROYALLY PISSES ME OFF!!!)

 I don't know about you, but I am mighty tired of being told by my "betters" that someone who thinks there are more than 57 states, that a person with asthma needs a breathalyzer, that Austrian is a language, that heroes honored at a freaking Memorial Day celebration could freaking POSSIBLY be in the audience, that the Americans liberated Auschwitz, that corpsman is pronounced with an "S", that Hawaii is in freaking Asia, that railroads cross oceans, that Selma, AL happened BEFORE he was born, that 10,000 people (instead of 12) died in a town in Kansas - I am so bloody tired that this dumb-ass-vote-present-narcissistic idiot is billed as so freaking smart because he's a "constitutional law professor" but doesn't know that the job of the Supreme Court is to freaking review the freaking law, I could puke.

Honestly. I could just puke.

From Gateway Pundit


This gentleman nails it. BRAVO! 

Divide and conquer. Wise words which the Democrats have taken to heart and used to maintain power in this country for almost 100 hundred years. Group politics, from unions to race to flyover country.

How is it that the Democrats can deliberately define an entire group of people by their skin color in order to woo their vote, and NOT be called racists? How is that possible?

It's a puzzlement.


The Obama camp is going to regret picking this fight over vacations vs. cuisine, because now, it seems, Romney has saved a dog's life!

Romney 2, Obama -1...with heartburn.

Oh...and Romney and sons also saved some people, too.


You can thank BuzzFeed’s Andrew Kaczynski for the front-page thumbnail. In all seriousness, this is a “gamechanger” in the literal sense of that term. Axelrod and his pals are playing a breathtakingly stupid game with the “dog wars” and this anecdote will in fact change voters’ perceptions if/when it enters wider media circulation. Romney 2012: Because “dog” plus “water” does not equal “stew.”

“We heard a whole bunch of screaming,” said Josh Romney, who immediately hopped onto his Jet Ski. “We tore out of there and my dad hopped on the other Jet Ski and came out right after us.”

Roughly 300 yards out onto the lake, six adult family members and their dog were floundering in the water, after their boat suddenly sprung a huge leak — sinking in less than 90 seconds, Josh said…

In the middle of the rescue, the governor actually took a dunking himself — thrown off the Jet Ski as one anxious boater scrambled aboard and tipped the craft off-balance.

The rescuing Romneys also managed to snatch the family dog, McKenzie, from a watery grave — grabbing the Scottish terrier first because it was the only passenger without a lifejacket.

“It looked like it wasn’t going to last much longer,” said Josh, who held the waterlogged pooch on the ride back to shore.
Our new president (see what I did there) is a bona fide hero.  Cool.  Speaking of cool, apparently Romney is an ACTION HERO! gets better.

The Christian Science Monitor reports:
The celebrity news site got a hold of a video (see below) from an individual who claims he was the one thrown off an airplane (it wasn't in the air) for an incident with former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney Monday evening. If you are new to the story, here's some background.
Anyway, turns out the alleged assailant was Sky Blu from the rap group LMFAO (or at least that's what he says).
Mr. Blu's version of the incident adds some color to the story. It's not as cut and dry as had been previously reported.
In fact, Sky Blu says Romney drew first blood. Well, he said Romney grabbed him after angrily telling him to move his seat up.
"He grabs my shoulder .. and I just react BOOM get off me!" Blu told the video camera. "He put a condor grip on me. What am I supposed to do?"
"That's like a Vulcan grip," offered his bandmate Redfoo.
"Like a Vulcan grip," Blu concurred. "I'm not your prey. I'm not a salmon going upstream. You're not going to grip me up."

H/T: Ed Driscoll


I am not sure I would go so far as to say that "the love of theory is the root of all evil" is the best sentence ever, but it does open an arena of thought in which to explore the inexplicable: why are intellectuals always so willing to press on against all factual, physical evidence when their beloved theories don't work, are demonstrably false, even when they are so disastrous that they result in the deaths of millions? As I have wondered here before, if you really wanted the best for people through the implementation of your theory (i.e., Marx's communism, Mao's cultural revolution), wouldn't you start to question your conclusions when you reached, say, 20 million deaths of your own countrymen...?  I mean, wouldn't you start to get a little doubtful around 15 million or so...give or take a few mil? How many bodies would it take for a you to step back and say, "Whoa...this can't be right."

There are men who develop theories and when the theories are proven wrong, they adapt to the new evidence and change or abandon their theory. They can do this because their ego isn't aligned with being right; their ego is aligned with finding truth. This is quite different. Men who become completely consumed with being right will destroy anything or anyone rather than admit they are mistaken. They are certain men; they are dangerous men.

My belief is that it is not the love of theory that makes men mad. It is the investment of their ego in the theory. It is ego inflated by advanced intellect that creates the pure evil of a personality willing to impose its vision - its certainty - on others, that drives men to push through all restraints of conscience. 

This is a madness to which the left, the progressive, the modern liberal is particularly susceptible, although its allure is enticing for all men. The modern liberal believes himself above the nonsense of superstition, the irrationality of religion, the uneducated assumptions of the common man with his common sense.  His entire sense of self and his view of the world is defined by the ideas of men of theory who are often invested in being right rather than in finding truth. For truth is elusive. But with enough power, you can always be right. Having spurned religion, the liberal sees only superstition instead of wonder, ignorance instead of the humble acknowledgment of the unknown, fear of change instead of centuries of shared cultural wisdom. There is no humility, no uncertainty, in such a man. 

A man of certainty, one whose theory must be correct for him to retain his place in the world, will kill as many as it takes to be right. The truth be damned.

Now men in Egypt can have a farewell fling with their wives before taking them to the morgue. Probably the first time they will ever have sex with a willing partner. Oh, and they've also thrown in another little treat for the goat-humpers and pedophiles. You can now start raping your wife at 14.

Egyptian husbands will soon be legally allowed to have sex with their dead wives - for up to six hours after their death.
The controversial new law is part of a raft of measures being introduced by the Islamist-dominated parliament.
It will also see the minimum age of marriage lowered to 14 and the ridding of women's rights of getting education and employment.

Let's get this party started, shall we?

Guess what happens?

Spoiler: When the debt is so out of control that everyone is as scared as a 13 year old watching a Saw movie, the answer is not to control spending, but to control YOU.

This is an honest question. How is it that liberals never question their belief that "smart" guys must plan and run the economy, when these "smart" guys never get it right? Never. Ever. As in NEVER!

More Americans than forecast filed applications for unemployment benefits last week, a sign that the labor market is taking time to improve.

Jobless claims fell by 1,000 to 388,000 in the week ended April 21 from a revised 389,000 the prior period that was the highest since early January, Labor Department figures showed today in Washington. The median forecast of 48 economists surveyed by Bloomberg News called for a drop to 375,000.

A sign that the labor market is taking time to improve? How about the labor market is struggling to survive on life support and the Democrats are standing on the air hose.

If there is one constant with government, no matter who is in charge, they are always wrong with their rosy projections. Since Obama took office I would suggest that the one thing we've heard more than "it's George Bush's fault" is "we didn't see this coming."

It's point the finger or shrug the shoulders. Not the best management style. So why do liberals continue to put their trust in people just because they managed to lie their way into elected office, and reflexively distrust anyone who, like them, is a private citizen?  It's a puzzlement.

The only reasonable explanation. It couldn't possibly be that global warming is a politically driven scam to impoverish the world, enrich political leaders and destroy freedom.  Naaaaaah...that's just crazy talk.


Tragedy? Or just science at work...


The "acceptable" targets just change. 

Whatever the ultimate outcome of the case against George Zimmerman for his shooting of Trayvon Martin, what has happened already is enough to turn the stomach of anyone who believes in either truth or justice.
An amazing proportion of the media has given us a painful demonstration of the thinking -- and lack of thinking -- that prevailed back in the days of the old Jim Crow South, where complexion counted more than facts in determining how people were treated.
Let us talk sense, like adults. Nothing that is done to George Zimmerman -- justly or unjustly -- will unlynch a single black man who was tortured and killed in the Jim Crow South for a crime he didn't commit.
Letting hoodlums get away with hoodlumism today does not undo a single injustice of the past. It is not even a favor to the hoodlums, for many of whom hoodlumism is just the first step on a path that leads to the penitentiary, and maybe to the execution chamber.
Winston Churchill said, "If the past sits in judgment on the present, the future will be lost." He wasn't talking about racial issues, but what he said applies especially where race is involved.

Hatred of "other" is rooted in the belief that the "other", whoever they may be, are receiving privileges not available to another group. It is this belief, that advantages are being denied some while being created for others, that breeds hatred and despair. This belief will always be with us, fueled by either fear or envy, for hard work will put food on the table of nearly everyone; it will not make everyone rich.

But when we, as a society, respond to this belief by actually creating privilege and advantage for one group over another, prejudice and hatred become institutionalized. It does no one any good to try to right the wrongs of a previous generation. They are dead. Justice is only for the living.  And justice is an individual thing.

But I'm sick of hearing about it from our Most Smartest President EVAH! So, apparently, is Harvey.

I'm sick to death of "fairness":

Just give me liberty.
I'll make my own fairness.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Remember, kittens, that you can not make life fair without the use of force. Lots of it. Remember your ol' dad wisely saying, "Life's not fair"...? He was right. It's not. So the only way you can create fairness is to bring the hammer down on those who want something different than fairness.

"If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun."

"I want you to argue with them and get in their face!"

Yes, I remember how long-suffering and unfailingly diplomatic Obama has been to those recalcitrant, obdurate, mean-spirited Republicans. It's been painful to watch.

(CNS) — House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told reporters at her Thursday briefing that President Barack Obama “has been so respectful of the Republicans in Congress.”
She was responding to a reporter who asked her to react to House Speaker John Boehner (R-Calif.) who said on Wednesday that the “president has been AWOL since Labor Day” and that he “lacks the courage to lead on the economy."
“The fact is this president has been so respectful of the Republicans in Congress,” Pelosi said. “He has given them every opportunity for the executive and the legislative branch to work together, to have a solution that has bi-partisan support. He’s been criticized by some for taking the time that it takes to find out that they’re never going to give him a break, which is a compromise.”
Goebbels would be so proud.

This is "old news", but worth repeating. I don't know about you, but I don't want a president who whispers to our enemy that he just needs to get past the stupid voters in America before he can be real pals with them. You know, total BFF's, dude.


Picture of the Day: Democrats (Not) At Work

Guy Benson says that this is a picture worth 1,086 words — one for each day since the Democrat-led Senate passed the budget resolution required by law each April 15th.  This picture comes from yesterday’s so-called “mark-up session” of the Senate Budget Committee, a meeting which chair Kent Conrad helpfully promoted by declaring that he wouldn’t allow any votes to be taken on budgets.  That turned the meeting into nothing more than a discussion forum, one that Conrad’s colleagues decided to skip. The picture, taken by a Republican staffer at the meeting, shows all 11 Republicans sitting on the far side of the table — and almost no Democrats in their chairs:

The words of the esteemed Vice-President of the United States, Joe Biden, come immediately to mind: "This is a big fucking deal."


"Shuttle Discovery Goes From Runway to Museum"
Discovery was the first shuttle to be decommissioned, back in March 2011. The orbiter flew 39 missions, more than any other shuttle in history, logging 148,221,675 miles on its odometer during 365 days in outer space. Its achievements include deployment of the Hubble Space Telescope in 1990, John Glenn's flight in 1998 at the age of 77 (which made him the oldest person to fly in space), and the "return to flight" missions after the Challenger explosion and the Columbia disaster.
