The Potty Blues
Posted by Dave
The last few days have been exhausting. We have been working on Ben’s potty training for months. That’s right, months. He is, as it turns out, terrified of toilets. I don’t mean nervous or unsure around them, I mean terrified. Even the little potty training ones scare him. So if I seem snappy and short today, I apologize in advance.

In this case, a school district was told that banning “I ♥ Boobies” bracelets worn by some high school students – ostensibly to promote breast cancer awareness – was a violation of the 1st amendment.

Getting scared on Halloween is adrenalin rush which, as it turns out, may be good for you.

Here’s some good news for you, terrorism is up 69% this year with fatalities up 89%! Nearly all of it in PLRI countries and committed by PLRI groups, such as Al Qaeda.
Bondo is upset with the NSA, not for its unconstitutional spying on American citizens, but for getting caught spying on the French and Germans. The NSA is terrified of her and facing her wrath. Again, not for violating Americans 4th Amendment rights, but for spying on French, German and thirty-five World Leaders.
Have you had an “uplifting story about an abortion” today? No? Thank goodness you’ll soon be able to hear about the joy of infanticide!
I keep telling you that Nancy Pelosi has no intention of not being Speaker again. Here’s the proof….
