We Must Stop This Legislation!!!!

The Americans With No Abilities Act

No cluePresident Barack Obama and the Democratic Senate are considering sweeping legislation that will provide new benefits for many Americans. The Americans With No Abilities Act is being hailed as a major legislative goal by advocates of the millions of Americans who lack any real skills or ambition.

“Roughly 50 percent of Americans do not possess the competence and drive necessary to carve out a meaningful role for themselves in society,” said California Sen. Barbara Boxer. “We can no longer stand by and allow People of Inability (POI) to be ridiculed and passed over. With this legislation, employers will no longer be able to grant special favors to a small group of workers, simply because they have some idea of what they are doing.”

My Kind Of Town

Now this could only happen to a guy like me
 
And so I say to each of you most gratefully
 
And only happen in a town like this
 
As I throw each one of you a kiss
 
This is my kind of town, Chicago is

 

Sometimes you find the perfect image to illustrate your post.

Chicago is having a pretty good year if you follow the old adage that all press is good press.  Even with “bad” press you are still in the news.  The Blackhawks made it to the Stanley Cup Finals.  Their junior member of the Senate is now the President of the United States and many of Chicago’s operatives are now employed by the White House.

Vitriol (vit – ree – all)

Vitriol is defined as:

“Bitterly abusive feeling or expression, language expressing bitterness and hatred.”

Synonyms:  insult, revilement, invective, vilification, or abuse

Quotable:

“Abuse a man unjustly, and you will make friends for him..”

                                                                                   Edgar Watson Howe

Can you use it in a sentence?

The frequent vitriol displayed by many liberals must indicate a basic insecurity in their beliefs, intelligence, policies, and positions.

Can you give me an example?
