The Pink Flamingo is having an ongoing problem with themes, colors, and this latest update from Wordpress behaving differently in Safari, Explorer and in Firefox. I use Firefox for working with the blog – and the constraints I place in Firefox are not working in the other two platforms. I have noticed if you use either Safari or Explorer many of the background colors come out white. I keep trying to fix it – but am having very little success.
One of the problems is the consistency of browser platforms. My theme worked perfect in FireFox, but nothing else. Until I can come up with a rational solution to the problems associated with my old theme, I am going to be using this one. I don’t like it, but right now I have no other solution.
The following is an excerpt (I hope) from a book I am writing.
A decade ago one, on January 14, 2000, I experienced one of the worst moments of my life. Not only did the person I planned to marry do everything he could to hurt me, in the process he destroyed my sense of well-being and who I am.
January is a rough month. It seems to me that bad things just plain old happen in January. Wyatt Earp died in January – 1929. The space shuttle Challenger exploded in January – 1986. The Apollo 1 fire killed 3 astronauts – 1967. The space shuttle Columbia broke up in re-entry (okay it was February 1) – 2003. The worst baseball trades happen in January. It is cold. You have all those bills to pay. And life is generally miserable.
January, 2000 brought one of the worst experiences of my life. It also brought one of the most remarkable and spiritually awakening moments of my life. I learned the power of praise when the big things in life are bad.

They are creepy and they are kooky!
Michael Medved, in the opening moments of his Monday’s radio show brought up a very salient point. We DO NOT want Harry Reid to resign. We want him right where he is, running for re-election. We want Harry Reid as one of the faces of the Democrats.
You gotta love the Dems. They are so very adorable, cute, and just plain fun to watch.
Then again they are creepy and they are kooky!
The Pink Flamingo wants to make a prediction. In six months, Sarah Palin, the darling of the Tea Party “patriots” will be the far right’s public enemy #2, right up there with Lindsey.
She is showing her true – VERY RED – colors!
Sarah Palin is making money off the whole thing. She is not doing this for charity. And – now that the idiots are realizing that they must pay speakers, the you know what that drops out of the rear of Alaskan carribou is about ready to hit the fan.
“…The Tea Party convention, for one, is charging $549 per person for the event—no doubt to pay for Palin’s speaking fee, reportedly as high as $100,000—which has left some supporters queasy about the entire production. “This is the beginning of the end of it as a ground-up movement. Let the co-optation begin,” writes one pro–Tea Party blogger. The buckracking echoes the arrival of groups like the Tea Party Express, which used the name of the grassroots insurrection to raise funds for a longstanding Republican political action committee. As Stephanie Mencimer has reported, such developments have led to major clashes with groups like the “Tea Party Patriots,” who’ve adhered to the anti-establishment, grassroots ethos that originally founded the movement…”
The Pink Flamingo is loving every minute of it.
The Pink Flamingo has been right about Sarah Palin all along (thank heavens) and she is not a far right fringe third party idiot. She is a Republican. Praise the Lord!
The Pink Flamingo is beginning to wonder just how many Republicans are willing to stand up to the Ron Paul Bots and have the courage to PURGE them from grass-roots GOP leadership positions through out the country. My sources tell me in Oklahoma the purge is on. Evidently in South Carolina, only Lindsey had the courage to stand up to these nut-jobs, and now they are taking their revenge. The real crime – with only a few exceptions, The Palmetto Scoop, CNN and The Pink Flamingo NO ONE is reporting what actually happened at the meeting. The far right is so far gone in their hatred of Lindsey that they would rather lie about what happened.
On Monday night the Lexington County GOP voted 13-7 to censure Lindsey. The Ron Paul Bot who engineered the illegal procedure, Talbert Black is NOT a Republican. Black, a Ron Paul Bot nutcase is the idiot who promoted the illegal procedure.
“…Talbert Black, of Lexington, believes Graham has tried to marginalize him and others, noting a comment the senator made in October that the GOP does not want to limit itself as a party of angry white men. “When you have somebody so willing to compromise with those who aren’t conservative, and belittles those who are conservative, we need to do something about that,” said Black, the state coordinator of Campaign for Liberty, a group dedicated to personal liberty and fiscal conservatism that spawned after Paul’s 2008 presidential campaign. As precinct president, Black proposed the resolution while filling in for a committeeman. Graham said Black, a 40-year-old software engineer, had never voted for a Republican presidential nominee; Black said he hasn’t voted for his party’s presidential pick since 1992….”
There is a war brewing in the GOP, caused not by Republicans and not by actual conservatives, but by the slobbering minions who follow Ron Paul and his freaky message of appeasement, conspiracy theories, and outright hate.
The very real problem is the fact that very few of those who are part of the Far Right and are not Ron Paul Bots have the courage to stand up against the fake conservative onslaught of their attack. Add that with the fact that there are very few Republicans who have the actual courage to stand up against them and we have what could be a serious crises.
Would someone please explain to The Pink Flamingo just why the State Department, White House, and the MSM are neither confirming or denying the fact that al Qaeda attempted to kill Hillary Clinton while she was in Kenya in August.
It doesn’t take rocket science to figure out that the Dems, esp. the Obama Administration and their MSM flunkies do not seem to react all that favorably toward women who may be in power some day. In fact, when one considers how Hillary Clinton has been treated as Secretary of State (the now invisible cabinet post) compared to Condi Rice, something just isn’t kosher here. Look at how Sarah Palin has been treated.
The Pink Flamingo wrote:
“…If she was targeted and Onsarigo revealed the story, the Obama Administration did not react fast enough. If it is true, they should be all over it, condemning the terrorists and thanking the security forces who prevented a horrific incident. No matter how one feels about Hillary Clinton, as the Secretary of State, a former US Senator, and the former First Lady of the United States, she deserves a tremendous amount of respect and consideration. To ignore a threat, if it occured reflects badly on the Obama Administration...”
Anyone who has followed the Hillary assassination attempt and the Obama Administration’s complete “ignorance” of it, should not be surprised over their reaction to the Hot Pants Bomber . Rick Moran has an interesting take. I’m not sure which way to go on this, but I don’t know if incompetence is the whole thing.
Are we dealing with incompetence, complacency, stupidity, or a group of people who are so pathetic in their hatred of all things George W. Bush that they would rather allow Americans to lose their lives than admit he was right?

The Pink Flamingo has repeatedly this week stated that something about this attempted man made disaster just doesn’t pass the smell test. First, we learn that the CIA has been tracking our little bomber for months. Then we learn that a smartly dressed Pakistani helped Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab on to the plane. This is about an Administration who is incapable of connecting the dots on Terror.
There is one question The Pink Flamingo wants to ask. Is it possible Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab had help getting on those planes. I’m not talking “little help” but someone in a position of a little bit of power who let this guy get through check-points? Right now the Obama Administration is looking like a bunch of Keystone Cops. There goes that Smell Test.
Who let this kid slip through dogs, scans, check-lists, etc with a bomb?
Do you really think an alienated, depressed, possibly suicidal young man could slip through security without some “inside” assistance?
While we are are asking questions, perhaps it is time to suspend the religious rhetoric and get back to some basics. Look at the guy’s profile:
Umm….where have we seen these characteristics before? Want to be a little bit honest here? Like The Pink Flamingo says, dump the religious angle. We’re dealing with the same personality profile as two young men who destroyed a school in Colorado. It is the same profile of a young man who goes on a rampage on a college campus in Virginia.
The only difference – this time the father tried to warn authorities that his son was up to no good.
What if we are dealing with some truly evil master minds who are manipulating disturbed, obsessed, depressed, alienated, and possibly suicidal young men into doing something for their “religion”?
Which is more frightening?
We think the implications of Islamic terror are horrifying, but what if there are much greater implications – an entire generation of young men, the world over, who have the same profile, irregardless of religion?
Jasper Schuringa knows more about fighting terror than Barack Obama. And – it is paying off for him, which it should!
Are we feeling better now that Obama is in office?
On Christmas Day, Barack Obama was not notified of a terror attempt for three hours. In an attempt to prove that he could react when necessary, he brought the state of Hawaii to a hault in order to get back to the estate where he is vacatining. Earlier on Monday, Barack Obama, in what was an obvious attempt to avoid a potential lawsuit, fled his golf game (he has played more in one year than GWB did in 8 years) to check on some little kid who managed to get hurt while obviously playing with his kids. One wonders just how much money this emergency motorcade cost the be-leaguered American taxpayer, but then it is rather obvious that America’s very own POTUS version of Barney Fife doesn’t give a damn about the taxpayer.
Barney Fife and the Constitution of the United States of America. Yea, it reminds The Pink Flamingo of Barack Obama, too. Hugh Hewitt has a litany of The Barney Fife Presidency’s Failures – which are legion.
42for I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not give me clothing, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.” 44Then they also will answer, “Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not take care of you?” 45Then he will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.” 46And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.’
The Pink Flamingo thinks one of the burning questions of the millenia should be as follows: Why would a man who is worth (allegedly) forty million bucks spend over $40,000 of the tax-payer’s money on travel for just one season – summer? I guess he was fighting those dastardly teapartiers?
“…Summer travel for the office of New Mexico’s Harry Teague (D) totaled $40,274. His neighbor, Rep. Ben Lujan (D), disbursed just $20,697. Neither office responded to requests for comment….”
It gets better. I also need to be honest and mention that Teague is a first timer and probably needs to waste all our money setting up shop.
“…Rep. Harry Teague’s disbursements begin on page 277 of the third pdf file. Teague’s office spent $899,807.89 through September, including $352,130.23 in the third quarter…”
One of the problems Democrats are having these days is trying to stay true to some sort of “value”. When you really have none it is fine if you are going for the superficial look. But, when you get backed into a corner and need to at least look like you stand for something, it gets a little problematic. It doesn’t help when you have someone ethical, honorable, and decent like Steve Pearce running against you!
Here we go again.
Don’t you get tired of reading all the lies about Lindsey (and most other Republicans) thrown at us by Losertarians, the far right, and some misc. “tea party patriots”?
Well, here comes another whopper.
Why do Libertarians losertarians hate Lindsey? What’s up? Why all the Cato Institute backed hits on him?
The Cato Institute is sponsoring yet ANOTHER hit on Lindsey. Funny how they seem to be the only ones actually doing the attacking. Makes you wonder why, doesn’t it? It sure makes The Pink Flamingo want to ask a few questions. It also makes The Pink Flamingo a little annoyed, okay furious, the way libertarians, conservatives, and the far right tea party crowd keeps LYING about his position.
Rumsfeld and his grandfather in 2008
This morning I discovered that someone had done a little piddle near the green box with the pink ribbon. Just because Doc Holiday has been chewing on the ribbon is no excuse for piddling on it!
The Pink Flamingo kitties wanted the staff (your humble blogger) to put a sign up warning Rumsfeld not to pee on the presents. They have a few things under the tree and don’t want poodle piddle on them.

Case in point.
Did you know John McCain is one of the most vocal opponents to Barack Obama and his policies? Want to know what the real problem is with the far right?
“…But in the year since that evening of comity and collegiality, McCain has emerged as one of the leading critics of the new president. On foreign policy, his traditional area of expertise, and domestic affairs, where McCain has shown new passion, the 72-year-old Arizonan is making it plain that he has no plans to serve out his years in the rank-and-file, as a politician known more for what he lost than what he will yet accomplish.
For years, McCain relished being an outsider and a maverick, a style that often led to battles with his own party’s leadership. Today, for reasons that friends and McCain observers say could range from unresolved anger to concern for his right flank as he seeks re-election to genuine dismay about Obama’s agenda, he is helping lead a fiery crusade of GOP loyalists against Democratic priorities – and irked some of his Democratic colleagues in the process.
The Pink Flamingo sent an email to a friend who is into conspiracy theories. I suggested he try and beat this one! It doesn’t get any better than this one. We’re talking Ike, JFK, MM, UFOs, the Military Industrial Complex, and the CIA killing JFK! The only thing not in this one is where Elvis and MJ are now living!
It is a doozy.
Let’s try and get it straight. Marilyn Monroe was murdered because she was going to tell all she knew about JFK – and UFOs!
I told you it was good.
It gets even better. JFK was killed because he was investigating classified UFO files!
You can’t beat this one, I dare you to try!
“…The video goes on to show that there were three critical periods concerning President Kennedy’s efforts to gain access to classified UFO files. The first began in February 1961 with Kennedy’s Executive Order 10920 to place psychological warfare programs under the control of his national security team. Not long after, on June 28, 1961 Kennedy formally requested his Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) Allen Dulles to review the operations of a secretive group called MJ-12 as they related to Cold War psychological warfare plans.
