Michelle Obama has "had enough" and may divorce Barry. The marital bond between Obama and Michelle doesn’t seem as strong as the two portray it to be. In an effort to look as family oriented and honorable as possible the couple has worn a facade for quite some time. It appears as if the two, or at least Michelle, are gearing up to part ways - after the President’s second term is up of course.
There are a lot of eyes on Obama, so every move he makes is highly scrutinized, analyzed, and often speculated on. One thing is clear however, and that as he continues his rein in office, the true love and affection he has for his wife, may actually be non-existent.
There is much speculation around Obama and how he miraculously surrounds himself with "relevant" and "necessary" people of the female variety. Often in the company of women such as Vera Baker, and Kerry Washington, it appears as if Michelle has been desperately fighting for the attention of her spouse. As his relationships continue to grow, there has always been some form—albeit weak at times—explanation why Obama was in the company of these women.
But his newest stunt where he acted like a pubescent school boy openly flirting with Helle Thorning-Schmidt at the Mandela memorial, has not only the American public speaking out against Obama, but his wife as well.
Now even though, David Cameron claimed that the pictures of Michelle’s disgust and her changing seats with her husband were deceiving at the Mandela memorial, it turns out this may not be the case.
After coming home, and in a respectable fashion as not to embarrass Obie, she let loose on the man she now seems to loathe. According to the Enquirer’s White House insider:
Michelle is mad as hell. She feels violated in front of the whole world, and screamed at him, "I’ve had enough!" She’s met with divorce lawyers and told Barry that she wants a life apart from him. Michelle will stay in the White House for the rest of his term for appearances’ sake, but she made it clear they’ll be leading separate lives.
She’s moving into one of the vacant bedrooms in the family’s private living quarters, and she’s preparing to move his clothes and personal things out of their million-dollar house in Chicago.
Behind the scenes, his advisers chewed him out, saying the photographic images of his frat-boy hijinks will haunt him forever. On top of that, women voters have bombarded the White House with letters, phone calls and emails expressing sympathy for the first lady and anger at Obama.
Even Obama’s top female advisers and friends like Valerie Jarrett were disappointed with him. Rather than unloading on him in South Africa, where their privacy was not guaranteed, or on Air Force One among other high-ranking dignitaries, including George and Laura Bush and Hillary Clinton, Michelle reserved her fury until they were back in their private quarters in the White House.
Then she went ballistic behind closed doors. Obama has humiliated Michelle before, but this incident was played out on the world stage. Practically everybody on the planet saw what he did and realized that Barry has absolutely no respect for his wife.
Now that he has embarrassed Michelle in front of the world, he’s going to pay a big, big price. Michelle has said she wants a huge chunk of his net worth. This divorce is going to cost him a fortune.”
It appears now that everyone in the country is fed up with Obama. The quiet mutterings of divorce are in the air—conveniently after Obama’s presidency of course—and the two are looking to part ways.

Some hours later, Tonto wakes the Lone Ranger and says, "Kemo Sabe, look toward sky, what you see?" The Lone Ranger replies, "I see millions of stars." Tonto says, "What that tell you?" The Lone Ranger ponders for a minute.
Then, the Lone Range says, "Astronomically speaking, it tells me there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo. Time wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three in the morning. Theologically, the Lord is all-powerful and we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow."
The Lone Ranger asks, "What's it tell you, Tonto?" Tonto replies, "You dumber than buffalo shit. It mean someone steal tent."

Shortly after a British Airways flight had reached its cruising altitude, the captain announced: "Ladies and Gentlemen, this is your captain. Welcome to Flight 293, non-stop from London Heathrow to New York. The weather ahead is good, so we should have a smooth uneventful flight. So, sit back, relax and......Oh My God !!" Silence followed.
Some moments later, the captain came back on the intercom. "Ladies and Gentlemen, I’m sorry if I scared you. While I was talking to you, a flight attendant accidentally spilled coffee in my lap. You should see the front of my pants!"
From the back of the plane, an Irish passenger yelled, "For the luvva Jaysus......you should see the back of mine!"
A little old lady went to the grocery store to buy cat food. She picked up four cans and took them to the checkout counter. The girl at the cash register said, "I'm sorry, but we cannot sell you cat food without proof that you have a cat. A lot of old people buy cat food to eat, and the management wants proof that you are buying the cat food for your cat."
The little old lady went home, picked up her cat and brought it back to the store. They sold her the cat food.
The next day, she tried to buy two cans of dog food. Again the cashier said "I'm sorry, but we cannot sell you dog food without proof that you have a dog. A lot of old people buy dog food to eat, but the management wants proof that you are buying the dog food for your dog."
So she went home and brought in her dog. She then was able to buy the dog food.
The next day she brought in a box with a hole in the lid. The little old lady asked the cashier to stick her finger in the hole. The cashier said, "No, you might have a snake in there."
The little old lady assured her that there was nothing in the box that would harm her. So the cashier put her finger into the box and quickly pulled it out. She said to the little old lady, "That smells like shit." The little old lady said, "It is, I want to buy three rolls of toilet paper."
That's it for today, my little sun flowers. Remember, the hardest part of your wife going into labor is everyone interrupts the movie by asking questions.

A&E announced today that the hit TV show "Duck Dynasty" will resume filming with Phil Robertson. This comes after A&E suspended him earlier in the month for his comments about homosexuality.
“Duck Dynasty” is the top-rated reality program on cable, according to the Hollywood Reporter, with an average 13.4 million viewers and a marketing franchise in such outlets as Walmart, Sears and Cracker Barrel restaurants.
A&E's "holier than thou" attitude may have caused them to step on their own purse strings as I, nor anyone I know, has ever even watched any A&E shows.
Nevertheless, it seems that after seeing the tremendous loss of potential income on the horizon, A&E may have had cause to "reconsider" their position on being politically correct and chosen the money.
Personally, I have never seen "Duck Dynasty", but with all the smut and innuendos on television today, Robertson's personal religious views and opinions, albeit coarse, are his right under the freedom of speech amendment.
More than 250000 people have signed a petition to A&E demanding that Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson be reinstated on the hit show.
The News As I See It: According to CNN, 200,000 Americans are signed up for a one-way trip to Mars to colonize Mars. Unfortunately, none of them are Kardashians.

1949; The Netherlands transferred sovereignty to Indonesia after more than 300 years of Dutch rule. 1979; The Soviet Union took control of Afghanistan, installing Afghan politician Babrak Karmal as president.
1996; Rwanda's first genocide trial opened for the 1994 slaughter of 800,000 Tutsis. 2001; President Bush permanently normalized trade relations with China. 2001; The U.S. announced plans to hold Taliban and al-Qaeda prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: An American and a Russian were set to square off for the Olympic Gold medal. Before the final match, the American wrestler's trainer came to him and said, "Now, don't forget all the research we've done on this Russian. He's never lost a match because of this 'pretzel' hold he has. Whatever you do, do not let him get you in that hold! If he does, you're finished." The American nodded in acknowledgment.
As the match started, the American and the Russian circled each other several times, looking for an opening. All of a sudden, the Russian lunged forward, grabbing the American and wrapping him up in the dreaded pretzel hold. A sigh of disappointment arose from the crowd and the trainer buried his face in his hands, for he knew all was lost. He couldn't watch the inevitable happen.
Suddenly, there was a scream, then a cheer from the crowd and the trainer raised his eyes just in time to watch the Russian go flying up in the air. His back hit the mat with a thud and the American collapsed on top of him making the pin and winning the match. The trainer was astounded.
When he finally got his wrestler alone, he asked, "How did you get out of that hold?" The wrestler answered, "Well, I was ready to give up when he got me in that hold, but at the last moment I opened my eyes and saw this pair of testicles right in front of my face. I had nothing to lose so with my last ounce of strength I stretched out my neck and bit those babies just as hard as I could."
The trainer exclaimed, "So, that's what finished him off?" The American replied, "Not really. You'd be amazed how strong you get when you bite your own balls."

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: At the end of the 2013 tax year, the IRS office sent an inspector to audit the books of the local hospital. While the agent was checking the books, he turned to the CFO and said, "I notice you buy a lot of bandages. What do you do with the end of the roll when there's too little left to be of any use?" The CFO, "We save them up and send them back to the bandage company and every once in a while, they send us a free roll."
The auditor replied, "Oh", disappointed that his unusual question had a practical answer. But on he went, in his obnoxious way. He asked, "What about all these plaster purchases? What do you do with what's left over after setting a cast?" The CFO, realizing that the inspector was trying to trap him, replied, "Ah yes, we save it and send it back to the manufacturer and every so often they will send us a free bag of plaster."
The auditor replied, "I see", thinking hard about how he could fluster the know-it-all CFO. He went on, "What do you do with all the remains from the circumcision surgeries?" The CFO answered, "Here, too, we do not waste. What we do is save all the little foreskins and send them to the IRS office and about once a year they send us a complete dick."
A young man wanted to purchase a gift for his new sweetheart's birthday, and as they had not been dating very long, after careful consideration, he decided a pair of gloves would strike the right note: romantic,but not too personal.
Accompanied by his sweetheart's younger sister, he went to Nordstrom and bought a pair of white gloves. The sister purchased a pair of panties for herself. During the wrapping, the clerk mixed up the items and the sister got the gloves and the sweetheart got the panties.
Without checking the contents,the young man sealed the package and sent it to his sweetheart with the following note: "I chose these because I noticed that you are not in the habit of wearing any when we go out in the evening. If it had not been for your sister, I would have chosen the long ones with the buttons, but she wears short ones that are easier to remove."
The young man continued, "These are a delicate shade, but the lady I bought them from showed me the pair she had been wearing for the past three weeks and they were hardly soiled. I had her try yours on for me and she looked really smart. I wish I was there to put them on for you the first time, as no doubt other hands will come in contact with them before I have a chance to see you again. "
The young man went on, "When you take them off, remember to blow in them before putting them away as they will naturally be a little damp from wearing. Just think how many times I will kiss them during the coming year. I hope you will wear them for me on Friday night. All my love. "
That's it for today, my little goldfish. Remember, men that know the difference between moist and wet, know the difference between failure and success. I'm going to ease on over to AREA 51 for happy hour and a little recreation.
Have a great weekend and more on Monday.

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: A distinguished young woman on a flight from Switzerland asked the priest beside her, "Father, may I ask a favor?" The priest replied, "Of course. What may I do for you?"
The woman said, "Well, I bought an expensive electronic hair dryer that is well over the customs limits and I'm afraid they'll confiscate it. Is there anyway you could carry it through Customs for me? Under your robe, perhaps?"
The priest said, "I would love to help you, dear, but I must warn you, I will not lie." The woman said, "With your honest face, Father, no one will question you."
When they got to Customs, she let the priest go ahead of her. The official asked, "Father, do you have anything to declare?" The priest replied, "From the top of my head down to my waist, I have nothing to declare."
The official thought this answer strange, so asked, "And what do you have to declare from your waist to the floor?" The priest said, "I have a marvellous little instrument designed to be used on a woman, but which is, to date, unused." Roaring with laughter, the official said, "Go ahead, Father." Next!
A young preacher was contacted by the local funeral director to hold a grave-side committal service at a small local cemetery for someone with no family or friends. The preacher started early but quickly got himself lost, making several wrong turns.
He arrived a half-hour late, the hearse was nowhere in sight, and the workmen were eating lunch. The pastor went to the open grave and found the vault lid already in place. Taking out his book, he read the service.
As he was returning to his car, he overheard one of the workmen say, "Think we should tell him it's a septic tank?"
The Hits Just Keep On Coming: A nun was in a hurry on her way to her job at the local Catholic Charity Hospital when her car suddenly runs out of gas. Luckily, she was only a block and a half from a gas station, so she got out of her car and quickly walked there.
At the station, she asked the attendant to give her a quart of gasoline so that she could start her car and drive it over to fill it up. The attendant told her that he only had one gas can and he just loaned it to someone else. She told the attendant that she was in a hurry and would look in her car to find something to hold the gas.
When she got back the the car, the only suitable container she found was a bedpan, which looked like it could easily hold a quart of gas. She brought the bedpan to the station and the attendant filled it with gas.
The nun got back to her car and started to pour the gas from the bedpan into her car. Just as she started pouring, two drunks walked by. One of the drunks said to the other, "If that car starts, I'm converting to Catholicism forever!"
A minister dies and is waiting in line at the Pearly Gates. Ahead of him is a guy who's dressed in sunglasses, a loud shirt, leather jacket, and jeans. Saint Peter addresses this guy, "Who are you, so that I may know whether or not to admit you to the Kingdom of Heaven?"
The guy replies, "I'm Joe Cohen, taxi-driver, of New York City." Saint Peter consults his list. He smiles and says to the taxi-driver, "Take this silken robe and golden staff and Enter the Kingdom." The taxi-driver goes into Heaven with his robe and staff.
Next it's the minister's turn. He stands erect and booms out, "I am Joseph Snow, pastor of Saint Mary's for the last 43 years." Saint Peter consults his list. He says to the minister, "Take this cotton robe and wooden staff and enter the Kingdom."
The minister says, "Just a minute. That man was a taxi-driver and he gets a silken robe and golden staff. How can this be?" Saint Peter replies, "Up here, we work by results. While you preached, people slept. While he drove, people prayed."
That's it for today, my tired little elves. Remember, one of the best ways to prepare for marriage is to wait 15 minutes in your car before going anywhere. I'll have to invent an AREA 51 party somewhere. Every one's partying.

The receptionist said "We do not use language like that here. Please go outside and come back in and say that there's something wrong with your 'ear' or whatever."
The man walked out, waited several minutes and reentered. The receptionist smiled smugly and asked, "Yes?" The man said, "There's something wrong with my 'ear'". The receptionist nodded approvingly and asked, "And what is wrong with your ear, sir?" The man replied, "I can't piss out of it."

The doctor says, "I see. Take these pills and come back to see me next week."
The next week, the lady goes back. She says, "Doctor, I don't know what you gave me, but now when I pass gas, it's still silent, but it smells terrible." The doctor replied, "Good! Now that we've cleared up your sinuses, we'll start to work on your hearing......

Phil Robertson, one of the stars of A&E's mega-hit series Duck Dynasty, was suspended indefinitely by the network for calling homosexuality "illogical," However, conservative political figures from Bobby Jindal to Ted Cruz to Sarah Palin have leapt to his defense, arguing that his right to free expression is being threatened.
Duck Dynasty is the most popular show on cable, making things like Mad Men or Breaking Bad or Girls look like flops by comparison. And yet lots of people have never even heard of it because they're out-of-touch coastal elites.
In statements that threaten the A&E reality hit’s wildly popular and uplifting brand of faith, family and hunting, the Robertson patriarch said: “Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong. Sin becomes fine. Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men."
Robertson then paraphrased Corinthians from the Bible: "Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right."
As usual, complaints poured in faster than a duck takes to water from homosexual groups such as G.L.A.A.D. and others. Evidently the gay and lesbian communities' credo of tolerance only works one way. As of this post, however, there have been no protests or comments from Donald Duck, nor his nephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie.
A&E released this statement from Phil Robertson addressing the controversy: "I myself am a product of the 60s. I centered my life around sex, drugs and rock and roll until I hit rock bottom and accepted Jesus as my Savior. My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and also what the Bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and men are meant to be together. However, I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity. We would all be better off if we loved God and loved each other."
Although Robertson's statement was crude, it still remains to be his right to free speech. All in all, this controversy has been bad for Robertson, A&E and the gay community, though admittedly, a pretty good day for ducks.
|On another note, a same-sex couple of two male Mallards were observed on a nature reserve in Germany. Phil Robertson's feeling on gay ducks are yet unkown.|

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) When asked to help the kids as to my theory on Amelia Earhart's disappearance I said, "Maybe she went Black" and now I don't have to help the with homework any more. 2) I'm taking Viagra for my sunburn. It doesn't cure it but it keeps the sheets off of my legs at night. 3) I find it amazing how popular baby Jesus was able to become without his mother posting a single picture of him on Facebook. 4) When it comes to politics I'm an agnostic. I don't believe there's an honest politician nor can I prove that one does not exist. 5) It came to my attention one weekend night when I had been drinking that I would really appreciate a light switch on the floor.....and that's five !

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: Police Officer O'Leary is cruising around in his patrol car one night. He's on the lookout for trouble. He sees two little old ladies in the front seat of a Chevrolet convertible, parked in a used car lot. The car lot is closed so O'Leary drives up alongside the Chevy and asks, "Are you two ladies trying to steal this car?"
One of the ladies replies, "Certainly not! We purchased the car this afternoon." The cop says, "Well, why don't you start it up and drive out of here?" The other little old lady says, "We don't drive, and besides, we are waiting."
The cop asks, "What are you waiting for?" The old lady sitting in the drivers seat replies," We were told that if we ever bought a car from here we would get screwed."
A man, returning home a day early from a business trip, got into a taxi at the airport. It was after midnight. While en route to his home, he asked the cabby if he would come in with him and be a witness. The man suspected his wife was having an affair and he intended to catch her in the act. For $100, the cabby agreed.
Quietly arriving at the house, the husband and cabby tiptoed into the bedroom. The husband switched on the lights, yanked the blanket back and there was his wife in bed screwing another man. The husband put a gun to the naked man's head.
The wife shouted, "Don't do it! This man has been very generous! I lied when I told you I inherited money. He paid for the Corvette I bought for you. He paid for our new cabin cruiser. He paid for your Green Bay Packer season tickets. He paid for our house at the lake. He paid for our country club membership and he even pays the monthly dues!"
Shaking his head from side-to-side the husband slowly lowered the gun. He looked over at the cab driver and said, "What would you do?" The cabby said, "I'd cover him up with that blanket before he catches a cold!"
The Hits Just Keep On Coming: With the holidays upon us I would like to share a personal experience with you all about drinking and driving after a "social session" with some old friends.
Well, this past Friday, I was out on a post-Thanksgiving evening with a few long-lost old friends. I had a few cocktails, followed by a handful of glasses of good vintage red wine. Despite the jolliness, I still had the sense to know that I was over my limit.
That's when I decided to do what I have never done before. I took a cab home. Sure enough, there was a police road block on the highway but, since it was a cab, they waved it past. I arrived home safely without incident.
This was a both a great relief and surprise because I had never driven a cab before. I don't even know where I got it from but I made $47.00 on the deal. It's in my garage now and I'm not sure what to do with it.
There were three farmers that wanted to win the state fair contest for having the largest hog. They decided that they should stick a cork in the pig's ass and feed him for a month before the fair. The only problem was that none of them wanted to be the one to stick the cork in.
So they bought a monkey and trained him to stick corks in bottles. After a week or two of this, they stuck the monkey in the pen with the pig and a cork, and after a minute, the monkey did what he was supposed to do. The farmers fed the pig for a month and sure enough, they won first prize.
Once they got home, they realized they still had to take the cork out. So they trained this same monkey to take corks out of bottles. They stuck the monkey in the pen with the pig and the farmers woke up three days later in the hospital with a reporter sitting next to them.
The reporter asked the first farmer, "What is the last thing you remember?" The farmer replied, "Shit flying everywhere." The reporter asked the second farmer the same question and got the same response. When she got to the third farmer and asked him what he could remember, he started laughing.
The reporter asked, "What's so funny?" The farmer, hysterical with laughter, replied, "The last thing I remember is the look on the poor monkey's face as he was trying to stick the cork back in."
That's it for today, my little jungle belles. Remember, you know you're getting old when you fall down and wonder what else you can do while you're down there. I'm off to AREA 51 for happy hour.
Have a great weekend and more on Monday.
