1 Good Morning Morons. Today is Monday, February 02, 2015; Groundhog Day. He will not see his shadow here today. It is raining. The first groundhog day in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania is observed in 1888.


And no the NY Zoo said no to him and another groundhog.

3 Obama dropped his last "hey look at me tax" because it was embarrassing Congressional Democrats. So he came out with a new one yesterday. And like his last one he never intends to get it passed, it is nothing more than a "get my name in the news" some more so Republicans don't.

10 Zamboni driver at a HS hockey match in ND is arrested for DUI on the ice. I have never understood how they can get by with these kinds of arrests, public drunk yes, DUI no. The DUI laws depend on "implied consent" by driving on public roads. Sorry, an ice rink is not a public road.

Here in Georgia, the DUI laws extend to any motorized vehicle you are operating on your own property. You can be arrested and charged for getting out on your ATV or dirt bike after a few beers on your private wooded lot or farm if somehow a cop sees you. Justification is if injured the state may have to pick up the expenses. That is a disgrace.

It depends on your definition of "lots". People were signed up in the Hitler youth at age 14. That would mean that the youngest people who could conceivably be called Nazis would be 84 years old. Most people die before that age. Anti-American German author Gunter Grass joined the SS when he was 16. He is now 87. The youngest SS, or for that matter Wehrmacht members would be 86 years old.
Just how much responsibility for Nazi atrocities do you think teenagers would have had? A 20 year old in 1945 will be 90 in 2015. It would be unlikely for them to have had any rank higher than sergeant. Just how much independent action would these young sergeants have been allowed?

The article claims that in 2005 there were hundreds of Nazi SS members who were responsible for Auschwitz still living in Germany in their 90s. Even if that were true then, it seems unlikely that there are lots of them still on this side of the sod.

96 Some Constitutional expert is on Yahoo claiming that it is unConstitutional for Boehner to have invited Netanyahu. LOL! For six years, the Constitution has not mattered a whit to this admin, but Congress invites a Jewish leader to speak and that old thing -- written by "dead white men" -- suddenly gets whipped out! People in the comments have pointed out that it is perfectly legal and has been done before.

All this time we wondered how we could really get under Obama's skin, and all it took was Congress inviting Bibi. Heh.

Obama's anti-Semitism is showing.

I'm wondering who invited the Mexican president Caldron when he addressed the congress in 2010 and received wild applause from the Dems when he criticized American immigration system and Arizona laws in particular or if that was unconstitutional. I'll never forget the traitorous Dems rising to their feet to show their support for a third world autocrat as he whined and complained about how mean and unfair America is.

120 She is on this fitness kick. She is losing weight, which good for her on that.

But, it seems the more weight she loses, the nastier she gets, especially to me.

But, seriously, it's all she talks about. I can't tell if she is fishing for compliments or is just crazily insecure. She is always talking about how her clothes don't fit anymore. And, on Facebook, she always posts about being at the gym...almost as if she is fishing for encouragement, which inevitably she gets. I would de-friend her, but it's a small office, and I fear it would create more drama than it's worth.

I guess I am just a more private person, and when I do something for myself...lose weight, go shopping, get a haircut...I do it for myself, and I don't really care what other people think, so I don't post it everywhere or go talking about it all day.

Reading your comments, I'm beginning to suspect it's nothing more than a Hollywood influenced delusion.

144 We people complaining about weather are mostly old fogies-so all we think about is that we have to shovel snow and worry about crazy drivers on the way to work. I've always loved winter except when is bitterly cold. I like how it looks on the trees and and the bluish grey shadows on the snow I look back with great fondness on days of sledding and skating on the canal when they had a big bonfire on the bank and we'd toast marshmallows. I would imagine that even people who hate it now have some good memories of Winter as a kid. I even liked sledding with my son when he was still young enough to enjoy it and not too cool and beyond that stuff.

___________________________________

Be sure to teach him about how, when Washington and his troops were without food and supplies during that terrible winter in Valley Forge, and the Continental Congress ordered Washington to do what other armies did and just take whatever they needed from the local citizenry, Washington refused. Washington had tremendous respect for individual rights and the rule of law, and he knew that the citizens of this country would never support its new government if it was disrespecting their rights and confiscating their property in such a manner. Also be sure to teach him how, when it was suggested to Washington that he become King of the new country, he was appalled and flatly refused. (Can you imagine Obama doing the same? As he did when he accepted his unearned Nobel Peace Prize, he would feign modesty and then accept the crown, saying he was only doing so reluctantly and after much thought and prayer, having determined that it was in the best interests of the country to have his enlightened leadership!)

It's depressing even to think about how far this country has fallen in terms of the quality of its leadership since the days of George Washington.

173 GRRRRRLLLLLL POWER!!!!!

Except that youight destroy their fragile self-esteem with a cliché proven harmful by Your Betters.

Brought to you by the same people who don't think a woman is competent enough to own a gun but want to put them all in combat.

176 Hey, why would Obama know whether Washington lived in the White House?
That was, like, over a hundred years ago!

And my fellow journalists and I didn't know, so it's obviously just some obscure historical fact that you're criticizing him over, H8Rs!

Isn't it cool Obama's the first president to brew his own beer? Over at Vox, "Everything You Need to Know About Home Brewing"...

177 J.J. way down in Kristiansand where I lived I did the same. Dove in the fjord to defend the honor of Texas 'cause they thought I wouldn't do it.

178 Central Connecticut already has about 4" on the ground. I hate it because I have these feral cats I trapped and got fixed living under my deck furniture in boxes with blankets and food. They stay dry and fed but I worry about the cold

That was me....but unfortunately Lawrenceville has become aggressively PC and Multi-Culti, in great part because of the current headmaster.

I no longer recognize the place.

180 The story about kids being sent home without coats, and the one in the ONT about the 4th grader being suspended for saying he has the One Ring of Sauron, is making me just shake my head.
Here's the thing - no private school would pull stuff like this because they see parents as customers and children as revenue opportunities.
Govt schools see children as inmates and don't see parents at all.

181 >>I guess it is our famous Gulf Coast humidity that makes the diff.

It *does* make a difference. I grew up in (dry) CO, but my first winter in MA was awful - the cold was so much more penetrating.

President Polk was the first President to have a limo.

President Grant was the first President to have Air Force One.

184 Morning all. It's stopped snowing here in N IL. Looks like 16" is the total around here. Schools are closed.

185 On the Litvinenko thing, think about it. Why would you actually want to send your best guys on that hit anyway? Maybe they could poison him without dosing themselves fatally. Why take the chance?
