Dennys World of Quotes: Christmas: Funny and Thoughtful Christmas Quotes and Short Poems





Dennys World of Quotes: Christmas: Funny and Thoughtful Christmas Quotes and Short Poems: From Denny:  Well, now that we have finished Christmas breakfast at our house it's time to roll out these fun Christmas quotes and Christmas poems for you and yours to enjoy!

Oh, how rude of me not to give you the Christmas breakfast menu:  a Dutch Baby Oven Pancake with spiced cooked apples and a side of Honeysuckle Italian style ground Turkey made into a sausage which I spiced up extra with some seasoned brown rice, smokey paprika, garlic and extra virgin olive oil before shaping into small patties and cooking on the stovetop.  Yeah, it's a tough day at our house all right. :)

And, yes, I made the roast turkey yesterday since we like to celebrate Christmas Eve as well so that pressure is non-existent.  Made a wonderful wet rub for the turkey that sat a day uncovered in the fridge to marinate:  rubbed under the skin and on top with a mixture of red moscato wine, extra virgin oil, and lovely spices and herbs like marjoram, rosemary, sage, ginger, sea salt, black pepper, smokey paprika, garlic powder, a touch of lite soy sauce and more.  Blanched the green beans earlier in the week so all that needs to be done today is to heat them up in clarified butter and some spices as a side dish.  All the cooking left is to bake the Louisiana sweet potatoes which are a divine dish in themselves they are so sweet! ....

Colbert Hilarious Interview: Dragon Smaug, Now Send Him To Eat Congress




From Denny:  This interview with threatening dragon Smaug from the Lord of the Rings movie prequel definitely ranks up there as Stephen's Best of All Time.  After yesterday's outrageous and obnoxious new federal budget bill passing the House, it's time to send a fire breathing dragon to Congress and this White House to eat naughty people selling out the American people.  If it survives in it's current form then expect the U. S. economy to go into a furious death spiral as Wall Street goes on a gambling spree with our money.

Why?  Check out yesterday's post after you enjoy laughing at Benedict Cumberbatch as Smaug's alter ego that has deliciously merged with the monster:  Obama Wants To Hand Over Your Money to Big Banks To Gamble As They See Fit? Seriously?

Obama Wants To Hand Over Your Money to Big Banks To Gamble As They See Fit? Seriously?

From Denny:  Forget about being a lame duck, President Obama is now toast with the American people.  Who the hell wants their President to sell them down the road just to make a government funding deal?  Yes, our President has decided, in his infinite wisdom, to give Big Banks everything their greedy hearts desire.  Unbelievable.

Two weeks before Christmas here are President Grinch, and his evil twin, Wall Street Grinch,  demanding that American taxpayers pay dearly for Big Banks to continue down the dangerous road of a constantly growing $800 trillion in out of control derivatives by bailing out the Big Banks when their risky gambling loses.  The U. S. economy only makes about $20 trillion annually.  How are we supposed to pay off this insane level of derivatives when they go bad?

“the worst of government for the rich and powerful.”

How can this President claim to be championing the Middle Class yet place our bank accounts at huge risk of steep losses by allowing Wall Street to take our money and play with it without our permission or any public discussion to explain these risks?  How can this President be so clueless as to do Wall Street's bidding?  Just how corrupt - or just plain reckless and stupid - is this White House?

Go ahead; shut down the damn government.  At least my money sits safely in its account for another day and is still mine not Wall Street's.  Clearly, this current government is more destructive open than closed down.

If that isn't clear enough, then now hear this:  Get your freaking greedy hands off my money, Mr. President!

White House budget office holds call to prepare for shutdown

Warren leads liberal Democrats’ rebellion over provisions in $1 trillion spending bill: "Congressional liberals rebelled Wednesday against a must-pass spending bill that would keep the government open past midnight Thursday, complaining that it would roll back critical limits on Wall Street and sharply increase the influence of wealthy campaign donors."

Budget bill: Why one Wall Street provision stirs the deepest controversy:  "Derivatives. The tussle over swaps is the issue in focus right now. A goal of the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform law was to shift some complex financial contracts into bank subsidiaries that don’t have federal deposit insurance. That way, if swap trades turn sour, the problems won’t raise doubts about the health of the more plain-vanilla bank.  Banks want to push this provision out of the law, and haven't been able to get it done through stand-alone legislation. So supporters of the idea in Congress have slipped it into a larger must-pass bill."

Concern about those risks hasn't faded, even as the economy has been recovering from deep recession. One sign of the times: A forecasting publication, Gerald Celente's Trends Journal, just included "Bankism" as among the hot trends to watch in 2015. "In capitalism, businesses rise and fall on their own merits. No business is too big to fail. In bankism, too-big-to-fail banks don’t rise and fall on their own merits. They are saved by governments that in turn force the public to pay for banks’ mistakes," writer Nomi Prins says in the journal, describing the trend."

Veterans Day Kudos Watch: Done The Right Way, DNI Clapper Brings Home North Korean U.S. Hostages

From Denny:  Finally, President Obama decided to be more discreet in his negotiations for and retrieval of U. S. hostages without the need to dance a celebration on his enemy's head.  It's important to refrain from those celebration dances as all it does is enrage and encourage yet another hostage situation.

As both a Marine and Air Force veteran with 50 years experience in the intelligence community (IC) DNI James Clapper was the perfect choice for the job.  Why?  Because a White House official or a State Department official would have been perceived as talking heads for President Obama.

Besides, it's been tradition for decades that the more talented - and those possessing integrity engendering trust - have worked international negotiations in an unofficial diplomatic role that then easily paves the way for the State Department to gain the glory.  It's when the IC is at its best instead of relentless needless spying.  Developing relationships with people on a global scale is the way to create Peace, not endless spying that doesn't yield much useful information to help resolve issues...

GOP Stealing Elections Again As Trial Balloon For Taking Back The White House In 2016?

From Denny:  Wake up, you clueless Democrats; you just got snookered again by the Republicans stealing elections out from under your noses.  For the past two weeks the word here in the South has been from my Republican friends of how they "know for sure" they are going to win big and take back the Senate.  When I asked why they were so confident, they winked, grinned wide and said slyly, "Well, you know the fix is in nationally."

Of course, it didn't surprise me at all.  I've been suspecting it for some time. Republican greed is so ridiculously out of control.  All you had to do was observe some of their behaviors to know what they were up to.   I was just waiting patiently to see if they were actually stupid enough to carry it out.  The answer for Election Night 2014 was a resounding "Yes! We Can!"

Did you check out Sen. Roberts (R-Kansas) desperately dialing for dollars from K Street lobbyists to the tune of $100,000 per call to save his campaign?  Well, today it's K Street lobbyists who are calling Sen. Roberts and demanding all the legislation they want passed to make good for all that money they invested.  Sen. Roberts is not the only Republican who will have to pay up to their lobbyist sponsors.

For months all the polling has shown many a race to be neck and neck and "too close to call" like the Kansas Senate race.  Then, all of a sudden, there is "a stunning upset" in many a race on election night where the races were "decided" by 10 to 15 points?  Doesn't anyone in the Democrat Party have the BS detector going off in their heads yet?  You should.

You have a slew of hated Republicans all across the country that their own states can't tolerate and yet they get re-elected by wide margins?  Come on, seriously? ...
