Loser and Loser Jr - Sour Grapes?
The Romney-Ryan 2012 presidential ticket failed mostly due to the candidates and yet, today, Romney is anti-Trump and Ryan seems to be feathering his nest for a future presidential run. All this as the democrats walk in lock-step like the Third Reich.
Romney, who failed to attack the Obama administration when he should have (thereby contributing to losing the election), is now on the stump crowing about how Donald Trump is bad for America. So, who's better, loser? Crooked Hillary?
Meanwhile, Paul Ryan is wishy-washy about backing Trump. Personally, I believe he just wants the national spotlight to shine on his future presidential candidacy.
In the interim, Hillary Obama continues to seek the presidency as her followers maintain their heads buried in the sand. The corrupt leading the blind and hard of understanding.
The Clinton Foundation scandal notwithstanding, Hillary's use of a server in her basement and willy-nilly use of classified documents continues to be ignored by her constituents while the same thing ended the career of General Petreus.
Hillary is counting on the dependency of Black and Latin voters, along with women. If not for "super delagate" votes, I fear the next democrat presidential nominee would have been the 74-year-old socialist lunatic, Bernie Sanders.
In Other News: The Obama administration will send a letter to every public school district in the country today warning them that they must allow students to use whatever bathroom and locker room corresponds to their stated gender identity, or face a federal lawsuit. The man is an absolute moron!
Meanwhile: Wendys has announced nnounced this week that they will launch their biggest expansion of self-serving kiosks to be made available at more than 6,000 restaurants across the country. The restaurant chain has been struggling, with their stock taking a significant dip this week.
Wendy’s President Todd Penegor admitted that restaurants have had to raise prices due to an increase in the minimum wage in many cities and states. Franchises will now have the choice of whether or not to use the technology to save on these labor cost increases.
So much for the $15 an hour burger flippers.....

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) I've learned a lot about women over the years. For example, if you're going to the hospital for a gunshot wound and she asks for tampons, you'd better stop on the way. 2) My therapist told me "Time heals all wounds". So I stabbed him and now we wait... 3) My cat Samantha ate a bunch of Scrabble tiles and now I gotta follow her around the house because it's her turn. 4) Getting older is like a walk in the park where no one picks up after the dogs. 5) My auto-correct turned "likeable" into "lickable" and the new intern looks confused by her evaluation, but I'll bet she's smiling.....and that's five !

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: A mother and her very young son were flying Southwest Airlines from Kansas City to Chicago. The little boy (who had been looking out the window) turned to his mother and asked, "If big dogs have baby dogs and big cats have baby cats, why don't big airplanes have baby airplanes?"
The mother (who couldn't think of an answer) told her son to ask the stewardess. So the boy went down the aisle and asked the stewardess.
The stewardess, who was very busy at the time, smiled and said, "Did your Mom tell you to ask me?" The boy said, "Yes, she did."
The stewardess said, "Well, then, you go and tell your mother that there are no baby airplanes because Southwest always pulls out on time.
Some older women are gathered and the subject of conversation turns to sex and then birth control. The first woman says "We're Catholic so we can't use it." The next woman says "I am too, but we use the rhythm method."
The third woman says "We use the bucket and saucer method." The other girls ask, "What the heck is the bucket and saucer method?"
The woman says, "Well, I'm five foot eleven and my husband is five foot two. We make love standing up with him standing on a bucket. When his eyes get big as saucers, I kick the bucket out from under him.
The Hits Just Keep On Coming: A country boy came home and found his house on fire. He rushed next door, telephoned the fire department and shouted, "Hurry over here. My house is on fire!"
The fireman replied, "Okay! How do we get there?" The country boy says, "Don’t you still have those big red trucks?"
Three kids were out riding their bikes one afternoon when a fire engine zoomed past with blaring sirens. The three kids noticed a Dalmatian on the front seat of the fire engine.
The first boy said, "They use that dog to keep the crowds back." The second boy said, "No, he’s just for good luck." The third kid knew better. He said, "No, that’s not it. The dog is there to give them directions to the nearest fire hydrant!"
That's it for today, my little peacocks. Keep in mind that "Sarchasm" is the gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the person who doesn't get it. I'm heading over to AREA 51 for happy hour.
