Some Christmas Tree Cutting Pictures

We cut our own Christmas tree and make a day of it.

Below are a few pictures I thought were fun. I especially like the hawk as Christmas Tree Topper.

Seriously, I couldn't care less what two consenting adults do in the privacy of their own bedrooms but teaching teenages "fisting" is vile and sub-human

If this is Obama's pick for "Safe School Czar", if Obama thinks this is a reasonable person to be associated with young boys and girls then Obama should prove it by letting Jennings and his ilk babysit his daughters. If he doesn't, then he should ask for Jennings' resignation.

DISGUSTING - A mark to make us ashamed: Britain wants to brand Jewish goods
...sometimes a story emerges that requires outright condemnation. On this occasion, the condemnation goes to the British Government. The government - our government, supposedly representing you and me in its interaction with people abroad - wants to label goods as coming from the Jewish settlements in the West Bank, so as to help consumers boycott them.

Christmas Tree Cutting

Well, it's been a family-centric week. My in-laws safely arrived, albeit six hours before their luggage arrived but not suitcases and grandparents are happily reunited.

I have completed 99.9% of my Christmas Gift Shopping and only have wrapping, cookie baking, grocery shopping, and cooking to accomplish.

And today, we are going to our favorite tree farm to cut down our Christmas Tree with decorating happening tomorrow (along with some preliminary gift wrapping - teacher's gifts, etc.).

So, this is my cheerful way of explaining the lack of daily round-ups (I've been running around like a mad woman) and promising that I will have some round-ups collected and posted very soon.

Sen. Boxer Compares Viagra to Abortion During Health Care Debate. I do not care for her as she was rude to my husband during a Senate hearing. Therefore, I believe Boxer is a political whore whose outstanding hackery is only outshined by her deep, broad, and dense idiocy. A complete waste of skin, Boxer needs to be removed from office by her constituents because she is a danger to the country and anyone standing near her suffers brain damage from the stupidity emanating from her person.

I didn't think it was possible but here is another politician who is almost as worthless as Boxer. Sen. Feinstein Says It’s ‘Morally Correct’ to Force Taxpayers to Fund Abortion (VIDEO) Talk about a douchbag.

Bachmann: ACORN could regulate the financial sector

‘Independent’ Report Reveals: ACORN’s Problems Are Sooo 2008

DOJ Defends ACORN Funding Ban While Gutting It Holder's Department of Justice is a source of shame for America.
To reinforce the point that the defunding is only temporary attorney Peter Leary states that “[t]ellingly, three of the four full-year Fiscal Year 2010 Appropriations Acts that have been enacted since the CR went into effect contain no provisions foreclosing plaintiffs from applying for or receiving federal grants.” The message is clear, Obama’s Justice Department will defend the actions of Congress to defund ACORN so long as they are only temporary and the free-flowing access to federal funds is restored soon.

This brief may be music to the ears of Representative Jerrold Nadler. If you recall he’s been fighting the ban and advising ACORN’s attorney on the issue. While DOJ has not gone so far as to agree with ACORN, it has eviscerated the intent and substance of the ban on funding.

It’s time for Congress to permanently defund this corrupt organization. Congress must protect the taxpayers and ensure that no more federal funds are not subject to waste, fraud or abuse by ACORN.

It is pathetic that this - TIME's Top 10 Scandals of 2009 - puts ACORN at #9.

ACORN and the CRU hack should have been one and two. Van Jones and the Gladney beating are far more scandalous than Octomom and Balloon Boy. I'm embarrassed for Time Magazine. Embarrassed.
