Whoa! Hold on! Back up just a minute!

Let's not get all crazy and call this dude my friend. This is a former classmate who sent me a FB request. I accepted. And have not exchanged a single message with him. I would not turn my back to him he came up to me on the street and said hello, but I also would not walk across a room to say 'hello' to him if I happened to notice him in the same place.

So, what you're saying is that you two are BFF, right?:D

Hm that sounds a bit defensive. I think you're in love with him.

Does that mean our usual routine of meeting up for happy hour drinks after work on Fridays is canceled this week?

Hee, hee. Remind me of when I was younger and had a roommate. Another girl my age.

Saturday afternoon when I ran into her she started yelling at me how I kept her up all night long and she really didn't need to hear all that sex. And who did I have in our apartment, anyways. She came at me very angry.

I looked at her puzzled and informed her I had stayed the night at my sister's so I would like to know who was in our apartment, too.

Obviously, it was from next door. Wow, they must have been REALLY loud.(It would have been the next building -- though only 10 maybe 15 feet away.)

First one is funny:

News Item:“... have disqualified him from being a urinalysis observer....”
Your life may not be turning out quite as you wished, but at least you are not a disqualified urinalysis observer.

Newt Gingrich regarding those who favor the legalization of gay marriage:
“I don’t think they have the power to change what is a religiously inspired definition.”
Exactly so.
As Gingrich has shown us, marriage is a sacred bond between a man and three women.
And counting.

News Item:“... said forcing the eighth-grader to show a school authority her Facebook page is comparable to police barging into a home without a search warrant....”
And if there is one thing Facebook users value, it is their privacy.

News Headline:“Sequester marks ‘first significant Tea Party victory.’”
News Headline:“Army suspends tuition assistance program for troops.”
You will probably hear soldiers complaining.
But those are the takers for you.

And yet, tuition assistance for illegal aliens isn't getting cut. Shows you where our president's priorities are!

Yes, because Obama drew up the Sequester parameters. I am glad you have such a good grasp on the issues.

NO federal dollars go to tuition assistance for illegal aliens. Some states are making the choice to do this (focusing primarily on the children of migrant workers, where the children are not citizens but they have spent more time in the U.S. than in their own home country).

In fact he did, Sammy. According to Bob Woodward, the well respected journalist who broke Watergate, AND two senior white house aids, the sequester was proposed by Obama:

Obama lied when he said he didn't propose it and it was Congress who did. He lies whenever it suits him.

Since you are impartial and judge each issue on its merits, I'm sure you'll find this information most useful. <sarcasm>

Oh no! He lied just like every other president. I'll survive.

"Mission Accomplished," anyone?

In fairness to him, his words were used out of context. The "Mission Accomplished" statement wasn't referring to the liberation of the Iraqi people or anything along those lines. The mission that was accomplished was the lining of Haliburton's pockets and the tarnishing of our image in the international community. So, you see, he didn't lie, he simply lacked specificity.

This is a nice time killer for a few minutes. From a very funny coworker (I trust his forwards):

Explanations of these events:
a) I did myself, and either got in trouble or commended.(I had a Major shake my hand for the piss bottle thing, for instance.)
b) I witnessed another soldier do it.(Like the Sergeant we had, that basically went insane, and crucified some dead mice.)
c) Was spontaneously informed I was not allowed to do.(Like start a porn studio.)
d) Was the result of a clarification of the above.(“What about especially patriotic porn?”)
e) I was just minding my own business, when something happened.(“Schwarz…what is *that*?” said the Sgt, as he pointed to the back of my car?“Um….a rubber sheep…I can explain why that’s there….”)

From CBS News on February 24, 2013:

"'A majority of Republicans did vote for the Budget Control Act that summer, which included the sequester," Woodward wrote in his op-ed, saying Republicans "have had their own episodes of denial and bald-faced message management.'

The takeaway: Everybody's hands are dirty. But just days before a manufactured crisis sets fire to America's economic recovery, policymakers have fled the burning building, seemingly more inclined to point fingers than put out the blaze."
