Is the Economic Grinch Stolen Christmas …. Or Is It The One?

Am I imagining things, or is the Obama-Lovin’ media creating a new version of Political Correctness: Thou Shalt NOT Give Christmas Gifts? Maybe I’m just a little sensitive because there’s nothing this self-confessed Scrooge loves more than giving Christmas gifts. Okay, go a little crazy. This year is no exception. Quite frankly, I am insulted at all the all knowing, smug comments that according to FOX News, we’re to cut back on our gift giving.

PART II: Are Republicans Different from Conservatives?

“…And just to set the record straight, let me say this about our friends who are now Republicans but who do not identify themselves as conservatives: I want the record to show that I do not view the new revitalized Republican Party as one based on a principle of exclusion.

CNN is reporting that Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano is going to be the Czarina of Homeland Insecurity, God Help Us All! Unfortunately she is not a Clinton-hold-over. You know it’s getting scary when we look to former members of the Clinton Administration to bring some rational experience to what is beginning to look a lot like a very incompetent Obama Administration.

National Geographic’s Hit on George Washington

Did you happen to catch the disgusting hit piece National Geographic did on George Washington? It was vile, full of mis-information, and basically accuses him of being politically incorrect. I gather the new rule of thumb is that, in order or the messiah elect to increase, all other great Americans must be marginalized and lied about. Okay, I get it.

The Pink Flamingo’s 89th Edition Thursday Thirteen

I could do an entire Thursday Thirteen list of where I have been this past month or so. At least two of the Wednesdays I was in Las Cruces with the parents doing medical appointments. Another Wednesday I had Altar Guild. Last week was my very best excuse. I was in Tombstone! Regular Pink Flamingo readers must realize, by now, that Tombstone, Arizona is one of my very favorite places on earth! I try to spend a least a week there, three times a year.
