Liberals Want it Stolen...Just Not From Them

The American Taxpayer
A young woman was about to finish her first year of college. Like so many others her age, she considered herself to be very liberal, and among other liberal ideals, was very much in favor of higher taxes to support more government programs, in other words redistribution of wealth.

She was deeply ashamed that her father was a rather staunch conservative, a feeling she openly expressed. Based on the lectures that she had participated in, and the occasional chat with a professor, she felt that her father had for years harbored an evil, selfish desire to keep what he thought should be his.

One day she was challenging her father on his opposition to higher taxes on the rich and the need for more government programs.

The self-professed objectivity proclaimed by her professors had to be the truth and she indicated so to her father. He responded by asking how she was doing in school.

Taken aback, she answered rather haughtily that she had a 4.0 GPA, and let him know that it was tough to maintain, insisting that she was taking a very difficult course load and was constantly studying, which left her no time to go out and party like other people she knew. She didn't even have time for a boyfriend, and didn't really have many college friends because she spent all her time studying.

Her father listened and then asked, "How is your friend Audrey doing?"

She replied, "Audrey is barely getting by. All she takes are easy classes, she never studies and she barely has a 2.0 GPA. She is so popular on campus; college for her is a blast. She's always invited to all the parties and lots of times she doesn't even show up for classes because she's too hung over."

Her wise father asked his daughter, "Why don't you go to the Dean's office and ask him to deduct 1.0 off your GPA and give it to your friend who only has a 2.0. That way you will both have a 3.0 GPA and certainly that would be a fair and equal distribution of GPA."

The daughter, visibly shocked by her father's suggestion, angrily fired back, "That's a crazy idea. How would that be fair! I've worked really hard for my grades! I've invested a lot of time, and a lot of hard work! Audrey has done next to nothing toward her degree. She played while I worked my tail off!"
The father slowly smiled, winked and said gently, "Welcome to the conservative side of the fence."

If you ever wondered what side of the fence you sit on, this is a great test!
If a conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.
If a liberal doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat.
If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him..

If a conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels.
Liberals demand that those they don't like be shut down.

If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church.
A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and Jesus silenced.

If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it..
A liberal demands that the rest of us pay for his.

Starbucks Management Are Idiots – Pure and Simple

Democrat donkey - helping the American citizen.
As is the American voter – legal, illegal, multiple, made up or dead.

Because all – except for some of the legal voters are Democrats.

But as a business, how do you purposely make the decision to alienate a large segment of your customers? Starbucks did, and their CEO appears on TV to prove they were not misquoted.

Starbucks is banning guns from their coffee shops. Now forget how moronic it is as you can’t enforce it and you are showing you just want to ignore the US Constitution. But you are also telling all criminals – come on in to Starbucks! No one there is armed. Come on in and safely rob, rape and kill everyone in the building.

I’m not going to enter a Starbucks. Not because of their stupid rule, but because I am not wasting my time, bullets and risking my life possibly having to defend idiots dumb enough to enter a Starbucks store.

Yes, I am stating I do not want to be in a position of having to save the life of liberals. Let them reap what they sow.

Speaking of being sitting ducks under liberalism and Obama, another US military establishment is attacked and a large number of people were killed. What would the liberal media be saying if a Republican was president?

But instead of looking at the root cause (all guns locked up on military bases per presidential edict), the lying communist media turns out stories on how the gunman “practiced at gun ranges” and “legally bought a shotgun used in the shootings”. Translation – close that all down and we will all be safe.

Yeah, right. They took all the guns from the citizens in Nazi Germany. Review history to see how safe they were. And if you want the feeling of being safe in a liberal society – walk unarmed in Detroit or Chicago sometime. Or visit a Starbucks.

Obama – speaking of that communist piece of human debris – actually made a speech where he said that WE are arming the Muslim rebels in Syria with assault rifles so “they can fight against a government that doesn’t represent them.” He said that, completely unaware that he and the rest of the communists called Democrats are trying to ban assault rifles in this country. DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHY NOW?????

Obama – and that criminal, racist murderer Eric Holder also gave illegal assault rifles to the drug dealers in Mexico. The plan was to make the killings and the weapons look so bad in Mexico, it would lead to a ban here.

All it did was get the intended result of hundreds of innocent Mexican citizens killed – but also a US Border Patrol agent. Yes, a US border agent was killed by a gun given to the criminal by his own government. Again, if it was a Republican president, what would the media be doing with this story?

On the domestic front of this communist regime we are under, Obamacare is being attacked – by Democrats – finally. The communist criminal unions have finally realized that their rank and file is losing their good healthcare for “garbage care” – THAT IS MORE EXPENSIVE!

All Democrat money laundering operations are asking for waivers to get out from under Obamacare. They finally realized that Democrat supporters can also be slowly killed or executed under Obamacare.

In addition, Obamacare paperwork asks for proof of US citizenship to apply. “WHAT”? – Democrats scream? “We didn’t need it to vote for you”!!!

So enjoy your weekend. Your healthcare is being destroyed. Your military is being allowed to be slaughtered both here and abroad (Bengazi anyone?). Murders of US citizens – especially in liberal gun free zones continue to skyrocket.

But don’t worry; the Communist Democrats won’t be removed from power ever again. At least not by an election.

Again, enjoy your weekend. They are running out.

Only the Irish have Jokes Like This

It's ok, but her heels should be higher.
Sometimes You Have to Let Go

Into a Belfast pub comes Paddy Murphy, looking like he'd just been run over by a train.
His arm is in a sling, his nose is broken, his face is cut and bruised and he's walking with a limp.
"What happened to you?" asks Sean, the bartender.
" Jamie O'Conner and me had a fight," says Paddy.
" That little shit, O'Conner," says Sean, "He couldn't do that to you, he must have had something in his hand."
" That he did," says Paddy, "a shovel is what he had, and a terrible lickin' he gave me with it."
" Well," says Sean, "you should have defended yourself, didn't you have something in your hand?"
" That I did," said Paddy. "Mrs. O'Conner's breast, and a thing of beauty it was. But useless in a fight."

Listen Carefully
An Irishman who had a little too much to drink is driving home from the city one night and, of course, his car is weaving violently all over the road.
A cop pulls him over.
" So," says the cop to the driver, where have ya been?"
"Why, I've been to the pub of course," slurs the drunk.
" Well," says the cop, "it looks like you've had quite a few to drink this evening."
" I did all right," the drunk says with a smile.
"D id you know," says the cop, standing straight and folding his arms across his chest,
that a few intersections back, your wife fell out of your car?"
"Oh, thank heavens," sighs the drunk.
"For a minute there, I thought I'd gone deaf."

Faldo Agrees – It is THAT Good
Brenda O'Malley is home making dinner, as usual, when Tim Finnegan arrives at her door.
"Brenda, may I come in?" he asks. "I've somethin' to tell ya".
" Of course you can come in, you're always welcome, Tim. But where's my husband?"
" That's what I'm here to be telling ya, Brenda." There was an accident down at the Guinness brewery..."
"Oh, God no!" cries Brenda. "Please don't tell me."
" I must, Brenda. Your husband Shamus is dead and gone. I'm sorry."
Finally, she looked up at Tim.. "How did it happen, Tim?"
" It was terrible, Brenda. He fell into a vat ofcGuinness Stout and drowned."
"Oh my dear Jesus! But you must tell me the truth, Tim. Did he at least go quickly?"
"Well, Brenda... no. In fact, he got out three times to pee."

Last Request?
Mary Clancy goes up to Father O' Grady after his Sunday morning service, and she's in tears.
He says, " So what's bothering you, Mary my dear?"
She says, "Oh, Father, I've got terrible news . My husband passed away last night."
The priest says, "Oh, Mary, that's terrible. Tell me, Mary, did he have any last requests?"
S he says, "That he did, Father."
The priest says, "What did he ask, Mary? "
She says, He said, 'Please Mary, put down that damn gun...'

Any Port in a Storm
A drunk staggers into a Catholic Church, enters a confessional booth, sits down, but says nothing.
The Priest coughs a few times to get his attention but the drunk continues to sit there.
Finally, the Priest pounds three times on the wall.
The drunk mumbles, "ain't no use knockin, there's no paper on this side either!"

Lump2 Wins 5th of the Year; Faldo and T3chlady Win Seats!

Lump2 doesn't just take poker players to the woodshed.
Lump2 ties K9isadog for the most wins so far this year, but it was not enough to catch our leaders.
But don’t get Faldo wrong, Lump2 will be right in the hunt for the 4th quarter seat and the two Total Points seats – as he sits in 3rd place there.

Actually, the 4th quarter will be crazy close with two separate races running at the same time – for THREE seats in the NPP Finals!
Talk about exciting!

Mikeniks-Faldo hung on to the 3rd quarter lead, as T3chlady came up just short of knocking Faldo out and taking the seat alone.
After Faldo failed to cash, T3chlady had to win in order to do it. But when she came in 5th  - now only LittleRedElf could catch her – by winning tonight - for the FaldoWild Card seat.

Internet connections plagued The Elf tonight or the results might have been much different. He finished 3rd to miss the 3rd quarter seat, but takes the lead in the Total Points Race!

LittleRedElf will also be a factor down the stretch – as will K9isadog.

But that does not mean a current player or new player could not dominate the 4th quarter and win a seat that way! We all start at zero – starting next week!
So be here or be square!
On to the action:
20 min: Tigercub8189 (16th) Missed it playing my hand.
23 min: Wingsfancurt (15th) sees his two pair run into Theedouble*d’s full house.
27 min: Sanster89 (14th) sees his pair of Queens out-kicked by T3chlady.
42 min: Derf-63 (13th) goes with (AJ) and loses a coin flip to K9isadog’s (TT).  Derf-63 won’t catch Faldo tonight.
That only leaves T3chlady who can catch Faldo. She is 9th in chips currently to Faldo’s 5th in chips. Stay tuned
