Affenpinscher wins Best in Show at Westminster dog show
NEW YORK – When Joe the Affenpinscher won the 137th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on Tuesday night, his handler Ernesto Lara raised him high towards the rafters as if to say, “We did it!” The uncommon dog with a familiar name proved that he was no regular Joe by becoming the first of his breed to win Best in Show at Madison Square Garden. The 5-year-old Affenpinscher’s full name is Banana Joe V Tani Kazari, but his handlers just call him Joe.
Marco Rubio-Republican response to SOTU- I am already tired of the idiots making fun of Marco for having dry mouth. It isn’t Hollywood people although you would not know that given that our President gives autographs at the SOTU. Gag.
File under: Rebranding(or kiss my ass)-Excuse me, I identify myself as an American! I reject some all encompassing generic title as citizen, this isnot ancient Rome.
President Barack Obama’s 2013 State Of The Union speech aggressively placed government at the center of Americans’ lives, starting with a litany of government economic plans, and ending by celebrating Americans as the subjects of government.
“As Americans, we all share the same proud title: We are citizens,” he said emphatically at the end of his speech.
“It’s a word that doesn’t just describe our nationality or legal status,” he said with great vehemence. “It captures the enduring idea that this country only works when we accept certain obligations to one another and to future generations.”

February 13, 2013-A short note on Speaker Boehner’s expression-Peter Wilson
John Boehner, who sat for minutes on end with an incredible demeanor filled with utmost disdain for Obama, barely able to contain his fury, while Democrat lackeys applauded the President’s lying uplifting platitudes about unleashing natural gas companies on lands that “we” own.
In Boehner’s face, I saw a man pushed too far. Is he ready to say no to a big spending bully? Let’s hope.

A Case of Real Military Injustice
ABC, one of the of the usually lame-stream media networks, has a real story about denied military benefits that all the media should be following instead of the fabricated Esquire article that has garnered so much attention. Amazingly, ABC is actually reporting on the inability of the victims of the Fort Hood shooting to obtain needed medical care because of political games being played by the Obama administration.
A Fun Read:A big movie star came to my hometown to shoot a cheesy local kid’s show.
The Seventies was a lousy time to be a kid.
Oh, sure, it wasn’t all bad:
We didn’t wear bike helmets. Our parents made us play outside (“Get out of this house, and don’t come back ’til the street lights come on!”). We “bounced around in the back of the station wagon.” No one was allergic to peanut butter, or very much else.
Evel Knievel was a role model.
But something freakish, sinister, and incomprehensible was always being talked about, over at the Me Decade’s grown ups’ table:
The 10 Best Quotes From Rand Paul’s Tea Party State of the Union
10) “What America needs is not Robin Hood but Adam Smith.”
9) “I have seen the inner sanctum of Congress and believe me there is no monopoly on knowledge there.”
8) “I will continue to fight for legislation that forces Congress to read the bills! I will fight for a vote on my bill that calls for a waiting period for each page of legislation. I will continue to object when Congress sticks special interest riders on bills in the dead of night! And if Congress refuses to obey its own rules, if Congress refuses to pass a budget, if Congress refuses to read the bills, then I say: Sweep the place clean. Limit their terms and send them home!”
7) “I was elected to the Senate in 2010 in a wave of anti-Washington sentiment. I thought I knew how bad it was in Washington. But it is worse than I ever imagined. Congress is debating the wrong things. Every debate in Washington is about how much to increase spending – a little or a lot. About how much to increase taxes – a little or a lot.”
