No, I’m not going to write about the esteemed, former, Governor, Rick Perry. Though his name shall (hopefully) forever be linked with that one little word. He and Brittney Spears, eh? Oh Lord, now I’ve got that ear worm going again.
But, as usual, I digress from my original intent.
Oops, as in FAUX News made a BIG ol’ mistake. I missed this, as I tend to do these days. Miss things, that is. Some days it’s all I can do to get the mongrels fed, the child clothed, and the grammar lessons completed. I do feed the child as well, thank you very much.
But as to what I missed. I guess FAUX News insulted the famed City of Lights and the mayor of said city is none too happy. In fact, she’s so unhappy with the idiotic, imbecilic news station (that is ashamedly American), she has decided to sue them for what I can only assume to be libel. Or is that slander? Sheesh. I should figure that out. I guess they also made some asinine (there’s that word I love again) comments about some areas of England and the Prime Minister himself, David Cameron, was quoted as saying “When I heard this, frankly, I choked on my porridge and I thought it must be April Fool’s Day. This guy is clearly a complete idiot.” (From an article by USA Today: http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2015/01/20/paris-wants-to-sue-fox-news/22062179/)
Yes, clearly complete and utter idiots over there at FAUX News.
Hey! Here’s another one for the OOPS file.
Did you catch that AWESOME, FAN-DAMN-TASTIC SOFU speech????
I know, right?
He was on fire tonight. I love our President. I simply LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that man.
Lame duck, my rat’s patootie.
So the imbecilic, asinine idjits who clapped and hooted and hollered (well, not sure about the hootin’ and hollerin’, but they did clap very loudly) when President O said he had no more campaigns to run sure had an OOPS moment when the cool and calm and collected Prez didn’t miss a beat and schooled them by saying “BECAUSE I WON THEM BOTH.”
Best fan-damn-tastic line of the night. (Sorry, just feel like adding in the expletive, what can I say?)
Did I mention how much I love our President?
I mean really, what’s not to love?
Instead of being all cowed, and browbeaten, and meek cause the Republicans shellacked the Democrats last November, he has come out swinging.
How about when he said this?????
“We can’t put the security of families at risk by taking away their health insurance, or unraveling the new rules on Wall Street, or refighting past battles on immigration when we’ve got a system to fix. And if a bill comes to my desk that tries to do any of these things, it will earn my veto.”
You go Mr. President. You go. Cause all three of those things are front and damn center for the Republicans. Dismantling health insurance for the millions of Americans who now have it, thanks to the Affordable Care Act; dismantling the Dodd-Frank legislation that might work to protect us little guys from the banking giants who stand to make bazillions of dollars; and spending more of America’s money refighting the fights that don’t get us anywhere. Specifically on immigration, climate change, the ACA, etc, etc, etc.
There was so much more. So many more great lines. If you missed it, I HIGHLY recommend you find a video and watch it or find audio and listen to it (that’s what we had to do as no television here in the house). President Obama is an incredible orator. And this speech was one of his best. Absolutely, fan-damn-tastic awesome speech.
And the Republican response??????
What the heck was that?
“I’m not going to respond to the President’s speech.” ~Joni Ernst, Iowa Senator
(Not a direct quote as I’m just too tired to go find the exact words she started off with, and frankly I don’t want to read another word of the Republican hyperbole. My stomach has finally stopped cramping from the one little gluten-free chocolate chip cookie I ate approximately 12 hours ago and I don’t want to agitate it again. And the Republicans do it to me every time. So it’s just better that I don’t go there, and trust me that the above is a very close approximation of what she said at the beginning of her “not-a-response”-response.)
Mmm-hmmm Ms. Ernst. OK. Actually, you were tasked with giving the “Republican response” to the SOFU. So you were sort of supposed to respond to the speech. Not go off into la-la land, reminiscing about wearing plastic bags over your shoes. What was that all about? Trying to let us lowly folk know that you’re just like us? Right. Just not following you on this one.
I suppose it could be the cramping stomach, but more than likely it’s the Republicans. I have a short fuse tonight, definitely due to the cramps, so it’s all nails-on-a-chalkboard right now.
I suppose that would be my very own OOPS moment today. Eating one of those damn gluten-free chocolate chip cookies I purchased, knowing damn well it wasn’t a good idea when I did it. Sure, they’re “gluten-free” but they’re made with potato starch and rice flour. One of which is REALLY upsetting my balance. I don’t mean balance as in being able to walk a straight line. I mean homeostasis, body in balance, that sort of thing. We’ve been basically Paleo since October 27th, so little things like potato starch or rice flour are wreaking havoc with my system when I encounter them.
So. Major OOPS. Will not do that again. I can make a very good dark chocolate, almond butter, chocolate chip cookie that is grain-free, dairy-free, soy-free and PALEO all the way. And that will just have to do.
On that note, I’m headed for dreamland. We’re playing hooky tomorrow (well, today technically) and going skiing! So I need my rest to keep up with the downhill tornado I must chase tomorrow!
