In case you missed this.....

One year ago:

1) Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 year high;
2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon;

3) the unemployment rate was 4.5%.

Since voting in a Democratic Congress in 2006 we're seen:
1) Consumer confidence plummet;
2) the cost of regular gasoline soar to over $3 a gallon;
3) Unemployment is up to 5% (a 10% increase);
4) American households have seen $2.3 trillion in equity value evaporate (stock and mutual fund losses);
5) Americans have seen their home equity drop by $1.2 trillion dollars;
6)1% of American homes are in foreclosure.

America voted for change in 2006, and we got it!

My thanks to Jimmy M and about 10 others who also sent it. It is just too ironic not to post.

Rain rain go away

I wouldn't say we have had too much rain, but all the yard critters are lining up 2 x 2....

A squirrel has discovered the bird feeder but still remains shy. In Denver they became so accustomed to a free lunch they would face the bay window and chatter their demands should the tray be empty. I soon understood they were good Leftists.

Did you know that squirrels eat only the soft end of the corn kernel? The hard husk is dropped to the ground making a terrible mess. Like teenagers they don't pick up after themselves.

The pear trees have broken into full bloom, the tulips and buttercups are blooming and the other trees are budding. It is now do or be dug up for the Japanese maples who suffered so from the late freeze last year and the dry summer. If they must be replaced perhaps Pope Algore will pay the freight since his global warming failed. Should I hold my breath?

The strawberries are in a horrible mess having been flooded by cold water for most of the winter. My plan to move them to higher ground will be executed as soon as I can walk without sinking into mud. This will disappoint not only the squirrels, but the rabbits. Both enjoy green strawberries. Don't ask me to explain. But the picture is proof of the squirrel's evil ways.

I shall spend the next hour planning my garden. It is a fun thing to do. Almost as much fun as cranking up the big digger and churning the dirt.

Rain rain go away..... for at least a week!

Bump and update.... If you want a closer look, click on the picture.

By golly Slate gets it

Doesn't Obama mean Rev. Wright's comments were 'not only divisive but wrong,' rather than the other way around? Isn't it worse to be wrong than "divisive"? Is unity the overriding virtue for Obama?

Well yes. Yes indeed. You see, only by voting for Hussein can we have true unity and prove that the are sorry for the sins of the past.

From the beginning this race was about race, although no one would mention the 800 pound gorilla munching leaves in the corner. Now it is out, and it is Hussein who has brought it out.

It's my party and I'll complain if I want to...

The Florida Demos have this problem.

They gave a primary and millions came. Problem is, Daddy DNC had told them not to, and that the punishment would be their votes wouldn't count. Now they're stamping their feet and demanding the rules be changed, just for them.

Aren't these same people who designed a ballot the elderly south Florida Demo base couldn't figure out in 2000 and then kept demanding recounts even after recount time had expired? And aren't these the same people who didn't want absentee military votes counted??

You have to wonder if Alzheimer's is contagious.
