In the times there is no truth...
 
Deconstructing the tired gray crone of Gotham.

Figures may not lie, but liars most assuredly do figure.  Or, as Glenn Instapundit Reynolds quips:

Narrative, and talking points for smug, low-information Democratic voters.
It's complicated enough. No need to stretch the numbers.

They know that women are always happier as stay-at-home moms -- say what? Usually the know-betters are telling my wife she has to work and is a failure as a woman, when she made up her own mind that she wanted to be a stay-at-home mom.

200 Years Ago Today

An Englishman most often remembered for the pastry covered meat dish or the boots which bear his name cast down the Corsican self coronated emperor.

Paraphrase of Georgie
" I wanted to send my money to an org that would take their cut before helping people with aids and starving children instead of sending directly to agencies that actually do the work"

That anemic 0.2% growth for 1Q2015?  Now it's a 0.7% contraction.

Flirting with recession...

"Welcome to Obamaville"! A nice place where spin is a fuzzy embrace and lollipops are free.

Thank You Chick-Fil-A ---- "Missing Man Table" 
H/t: 2 Million Bikers to DC
https://www.facebook.com/2MillionBikersDC

Never forget those who died for our Freedom. Make sure their sacrifice was not in vain.

The table is small, and set for one -- Symbolizing the vulnerability of a lone prisoner against his captors.

The tablecloth is white -- Symbolizing purity of intention in responding to the nation's call to arms.

The chair is empty, for they are not here.

The wine glass is inverted -- They cannot toast with us this night.

The slices of lemon -- Reminding us of their bitter suffering.

The grains of salt -- Representing the countless tears of the families.

The single red rose -- Reminding us of loved ones who keep the faith awaiting their return.

The burning candle and yellow ribbon -- Symbolizing everlasting hope of a reunion with the missing.

The Air Force has a "missing man" formation; that's probably where they got the inspiration. It's really nice!
