Gone turkey hunting

Time to take a few days off. Enjoy the holiday, eat lots of turkey and fixings, and if you’re at a loss for politics, go see “Lincoln.” It’s the best movie you’ll see this year or next.

Have a wonderful time off with family. I’m doing the same thing, but not until Wednesday. And I’m going to see “Lincoln” with the family when they get here. “Skyfall” is a good one for escape and I’d like to see “Flight,” too.

Judging from your double chin, your time would be well spend in a gym.

you’d have more luck finding turkeys if you waited until the session started

Enjoy your holiday time off. Your haters be damned, you are the best!

And I will see Lincoln when it comes to the small screen. Going out to see a movie is not as pleasant an experience as it was when I was a kid.

The Turkeys on the table are much more enjoyable than the ones that appear regularly on your Blog (like Whirled Peas). I hope all take a moment to give Thanks and hope for a competative Ga- Ga Tech Game.

Your friends and allies at PETA will be calling you when you get back to discuss your transgressions and probably suggest that you attend a “sensitivity” course of some kind.

Haven’t seen td on since the other night when he tried to argue that until an indictment and conviction have occurred, in the eyes of the law, no crime has been committed.

At least that is his defense of Tom Graves and his bank fraud shenanigans.

For a Bible-thumper, td sure does seem to drink quite a bit.

Happy hunting Jim!

Graves is a crook and he makes his GOP supporters look lame by reelecting him.

Lance Gilman (R) is the owner of the Mustang Ranch in Nevada, and this fall ran for Storey County commissioner. Read more at http://www.inquisitr.com/404462/brothel-owner-wins-election-in-nevada-first-ever-to-hold-office/#OhlLu3AxUUQlh44U.99

This is legal…What chips/graves did was criminal. If you taske out a loan and have the means to pay it back and do not that’s fraud.
I’m sure that if chips/graves does have the money, They like Shady Dealer will have at the end of this legislative session…

Boycott!

Wallmart….opening on Thanksgiving DAY Disrupting Families time for employees…Watch the bait and switch so called blockbusters in most cases 3 per store…More turkey Please. Along with other stores opening before midnight.

I hope Honey Baked Hams isn’t on your boycott list: I had to order one since Big Bird is off the table, so to speak.

Happy Thanksgiving, Jim, to you and to your family. And, I do plan to see “Lincoln,” as well as “Anna Karenina,” during the holidays. Outstanding films, both, I understand.

Jim have a happy thanksgiving and thanks for letting us speak. happy thanksgiving to everyone.
Do you think letting the Bush Cuts expire 12/31/12 , is the best answer If you look at CBO record for last 10 years , you see revenues went down, Defense spending up up., deficit went up. Bush, controller, David Walker said 2003 was start of problem on c-span today[google]Remember all the scaring they did about computers/2000, it did not amount to much. The cliff is a slope so new congress can put back middle class tax cuts then Republicans will not have to break their pledge to Norquist.. They need to keep the sequester as a hammer where both Republicans and Democrats voted to cut 50 billion from defense and 50 billion from discretionary spending so neither side can blame the other for the cuts. I watched a c span program on Defense budget and they said even with sequester spending cut , the budget is still larger than cold war budget. If Sec. of DoD is given power to choose, he could cut Generals/high civilian/contractors benefits,outdated weapon system.bands, blue angels, sports advertising etc.[do not cut military/veterans benefits]. It is cuts in defense or cuts in medicare, food stamps, medicaid [healthcare for low paid workers children/nursing home care/seniors] etc. Most of Defense budget ends up in pockets of wealthy for contractors/equipment manufacturer.

CC, what time is dinner?
I checked and all the Honey Baked Hams stores in my area, they have respect for their employees.

Closed Thanksgiving Day!

Big Birds having Thanksgiving Dinner with Sasquatch, due to the remote location and poor cell service I was unclear if they were having Demo’s of Repub’s. Thought I heard a Repup screaming in the background “something about shellacking and tossing me off a cliff. Oh well!

And yes Bigfoot is real. I read it on the internet. Has to be true if on the net.
