injaynesworld it's the "Sunday Recap..."

Princess Beatrice of York channels Lady Gaga…

There’s always that one relative you wish you didn’t have to invite.

So what’s the verdict?   Love the hat or hate it?   I wouldn’t want to be the poor person who had to sit behind her. 

Meanwhile, speculation on where the newlyweds will be honeymooning includes a private island in the Caribbean where I would love to someday sun my (size 4) ass, too.  Guess I’d better get moving on finding my own rich prince. 


Price I paid at the pump this week:   $4.39/gallon

First quarter profits by the big five oil companies:  $34 billion.

That's about $110 for every man, woman, and child in the U.S. – in just three months. 

Amount of taxpayer money given to oil companies in subsidies each year while the Republicans talk about cutting Medicare:   $4 billion

Republicans fight to protect those oil company tax breaks:   Treason. 

You can read the whole article here and you should.  Then get mad and get loud about it. 


The state flower of California is the poppy.  The state bird of  North Carolina is the cardinal.  The state gun of Arizona is – WTF?

Just when we thought Governor Jan Brewer might have some redeeming values by vetoing a bill that would allow guns on college campuses, Brewer bent over for the right-wing in the state by signing into law a bill that would make the Colt revolver the official state gun of Arizona. 

Coming only months after the deadly shooting that killed nine people and wounded 13, opponents suggested the action may be ill-timed.   Ya think?   Although, when a good time might be to honor an instrument whose only function is to kill people frankly eludes me.

Only one other state has made such a dubious designation, Utah.  Yes, the state that frowns on alcohol use wants us to know that it holds the Browning model M1911 automatic pistol in high esteem. 


Watching President Obama set Trump back on his ass is a thing of beauty.  Here is the president's monologue from last night's press correspondence dinner.   The opening is sets the whole tone.  Enjoy...

Don't be a drive-by.  Speak your mind...
