Just ran a few errands...........82 year old mother was pissed...... [View all]

first stop was the Post Office. Outside were 2 men, with Lyndon LaRouche signs, some saying "impeach Obama" "Honk if you hate Obama". One picture of Obama had a Hitler's mustache painted on.

When I got into the Post Office, I informed both window clerks about the Supreme Court decision (one window clerk was my brother). They were both so happy, my brother said he prayed last night for this decision.

When I got into the car, a woman (65, just got medicare) came to my window. She wanted to know who these "freaks" were on the sidewalk. We touched base, about the fact that they were on public property, but in front of the Post Office, to make it look like it was government sanctioned. She worked for Obama in '08 and was going to work for him now. She didn't know about the SCOTUS decision, but was very happy.

As we left, we passed by the Lindies, and my mom said to them "I'm putting Obama up for sainthood, and may you head in the opposite direction."

I like how my mom can tell you to go to hell, nicely.
