Take That Leap in 2015
A Leap Not Taken ...
When the groom backed out days before her
long-planned wedding, this bride allowed the
photographer to come anyway. He captured lots
of images of the bridal party having fun
sqeezing paint on the her gown.

How about that swim suit, hardly a bikini.
This beauty is in her 70s now; still skate boarding?
Speaking of Beauties,

Later, after eight marriages,
she had rice marks on her face.

"Last night I was sitting on the sofa watching TeeVee,
when I heard my wife's voice from the kitchen:
'What would you like for dinner, love?
Chicken, beef or lamb?'
I said 'Well thank you, I'll have chicken.'
She replied, 'You are having soup,
I was talking to my dog.'"

2014 Follies Man of the Year
Jonathan Gruber, Architect of ObamaCare.
Thanks to conservative media, his videotaped
remarks revealed the contempt the left has
for "stupid Americans." They don't know
enough to understand that ObamaCare is not,
and never will be "affordable."
We were all "Gruberized" to help the 15%
who did not have insurance.
The True 2014 Follies Persons of the Year,
50 Police officers killed in the line of duty.
Up from 32 in 2013.
That compares to 60 KIA in our military
throughout the world. They would have
be safer in Afghanistan.
Interesting Murder Facts:
Bureau of Justice Statistics:
Blacks make up 13.2 of U.S. population;
It is true that the rate of black homicide victims and offenders were disproportionately represented compared to the general population, the 2011 BJS report found. The black victimization rate (27.8 per 100,000) was six times higher than the white victimization rate (4.5 per 100,000).
Black offending rate (34.4 per 100,000) was almost eight times higher than whites (4.5 per 100,000), according to the report.
The Left Never Sleeps:
Obama Administration Imposed
75,000 New Regulations in 2014
Just in the last few weeks, the Obama administration has proposed or imposed over 1,200 new regulations on the American people that will add even more to the already crushing $2 trillion per year cost burden of the federal regulatory machine. According to data compiled from the federal government’s Regulations.gov website by the Daily Caller, most of the new regulatory schemes involve energy and the environment — 139 during a mere two-week period in December, to be precise. In all, the Obama administration foisted more than 75,000 pages of regulations on the United States in 2014, costing over $200 billion, on the low end, if new proposed rules are taken into account.
In 2015 there are "boots on the ground" in Iraq,
in spite of what Mr. Obama says.
Who are you going to believe, serial liar
Mr. Obama or your own lying eyes?
See "Her boots" below:
Could that be an M-16 rifle in the upper right?
Happy New Year troopers,
keep those weapons handy.
748 more days until
January 20, 2017
and a new president.
