Music Hath Charms

Posted in Humor, Music on September 27th, 2011

To quote the 17th Century playwright and poet, William Congreve, “Music hath charms to sooth the savage breast.”

Soothing The Savage Breast

Ah – those words spoken by the character, Princess Almeria of Granada which open The Mourning Bride have titillated people for centuries, lasting in our collective consciousness far longer than the play itself or it’s creator.

Liberal Neuroses

Posted in Humor, Politics on September 27th, 2011

Liberals, Progressives, and their minority tenants have a serious neurosis – OK, they have many of them – that is, at once, hilarious and painful to watch. This is their pathological terror of the patriots of the TEA Party.

Creepy Scared Clown
Make Them Go Away! They’re Coming To Get Me!

These Liberal clowns no longer seem to want to caper and cavort as much as they used to used to. Now that the TEA Parties which have risen across America are beginning the process of restoring our nation to sanity and great these capering fools now where masks of tragedy and terror as they flinch, scream, and flee from the shadows of impending doom.

The nice part of this stage of the Liberals’ neuroses is that now these pathetic fools and sports with their minds draped in crude motley are, at the last, finally funny. 😉

Organized Crime

Posted in Humor, Politics, Society on September 25th, 2011

In these difficult times it’s not especially surprising that some youth are looking towards a life of crime instead of a job on the right side of the law. It’s up to their parents to guide them in the proper direction.

Organized Crime
Organized Crime? Which Sort, Son?

Admittedly, given the current circumstances, this can be a difficult prospect, but the shame of having a child become part of the government should outweigh the problems a parent might face convincing them to take a more honorable and ethical career path such as being a crack dealer, enforcer, or bagman 😆
