UK Flooding

uk_flood629x420.gifThe summer floods have left thousands of people without access to water in their homes.

In Gloucester, where householders have seen their taps run dry, residents described how they are coping.

The irony of the situation is not lost on the people of Gloucester.

Their city is overwhelmed with water, but there is not enough to drink.

Rising floods closed down the local treatment works, and now every home in the city has been told it will lose its fresh water supply.

Hey Vimto! Hope you’re weathering the storm.

How low can you go?

The 110th Congress continues to set records for failure and ineptitude, further burnishing their title as The Worst Congress Ever.

The latest polling data from the Gallup organization just gives extra emphasis to what we already knew…

The percentage of Americans with a “great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in Congress is at 14%, the lowest in Gallup’s history of this measure — and the lowest of any of the 16 institutions tested in this year’s Confidence in Institutions survey. It is also one of the lowest confidence ratings for any institution tested over the last three decades.


In their efforts to appease the leftwing nutroots, Nancy and Harry just keep on sinking.

They are the gift that just keeps on giving.

Hurt feelings are all the rage


Welcome readers from: Free Republic; WordPress Blog of the Day

Elizabeth Edwards called in to a cable news show and said that Ann Coulter’s words had hurt her feelings. Hillary Clinton wailed that the Pentagon Undersecretary had insulted her patriotism.

Mean old neocons just keep stomping on liberal sensitivities.

Not to be outdone, the Islamic Rage Boy says his feelings are hurt, too.

“I do not like being called Islamic Rage Boy, it is not nice; but why should I care what people think of me in this life? The afterlife will decide my fate, not a mousemat.”

“I am not happy with people joking about me or making me into a cartoon, but I have more important things to think about.

The high school dropout has been arrested over 300 times. But, in a move that just might help to gain environmentalist props, this professional protestor walks to events less than six miles away, and catches the bus, or hitchhikes if the events are farther away. Yip, yip, yip, yipeeee.

On the road

On the Road….by Beto Ochoa

On the road. Like a Dharma Bum
My bible penned by Kerouac
What I have in sovereign verve
Makes up for any thing I lack

Your pillowed beds and comforters
Will make you soft and wake too late
Arise and ride the Dharmas wheel
It carries on. It cannot wait

And though I bed in humble kind
Or travel with the kit and freight
The world is mine and all it holds
I carry on. I cannot wait
