Handmade Paper Flowers



I was looking around YouTube for craft ideas on paper flowers and saw this video from this blog. These cute handmade paper flowers could be made with two-sided paper flyers at Zazzle. These two images below are the same paper. On one side of the flyer is a light shade of baby pink, and on the other is a darker red violet shade of pink.

The North Dakota Paradox - NYTimes.com

Nevertheless, there is no overall relationship between Mr. Obama’s state-by-state approval ratings and statewide economic performance.

Some of the numbers even point in the opposite direction: Mr. Obama’s approval ratings are holding up better in states where the economy is worse, and vice versa.

This is article points out a major difference between the ways more liberal people think as compared to more conservative.

The person that titled this article has to be liberal to even consider the contents a paradox. After all, a paradox is "a statement or proposition that seems self-contradictory or absurd but in reality expresses a possible truth.." They thus think it is absurd that people that live in a state that tops the charts in the US for economic performance would have the lower than average opinions of President Obama.

But, for a conservative this isn't an absurd thought, in fact it makes complete and total sense.

North Dakota is full of people that are independent, self-sufficient, hard-working, and much more likely to help their friends, relatives and neighbors than send them to the Fed for a handout. So, a president that wants to make more people dependent on Uncle Sam won't be looked upon favorably.

Not to mention, North Dakotans are smart enough to realize that all the oil money that is helping their state right now started under the Bush Administration.

‘Extravagant’ Spending, $16 Muffins Found at Justice Department Meetings - Bloomberg

U.S. Justice Department agencies spent too much for food at conferences, in one case serving $16 muffins and in another dishing out beef Wellington appetizers that cost $7.32 per serving, an audit found.

If you missed O'Reilly's take on the $16 muffins on The Factor yesterday ... you missed a good one!

Will Government end Wild Horse Roundups? Madeleine Pickens Wild Horse Sanctuary

via madeleinepickens.com - Madeleine Pickens Wild Horse Sanctuary

An August 2011 interview of Madeleine Pickens with Jane-Velez Mitchell on CNN: Will Government end Wild Horse Roundups? They discuss in this clip an instance of animal cruelty, and that as of yet the BLM continues to refuse her offer to take horses off the government's hands and offer them private sanctuary here in Nevada.

Telluride Daily Planet - BLM rounds up wild horses, one dies in process

Media_httpwwwtellurid_bqujf

The government is spending more money than they take in killing horses to make way for cattle. Do you think when ranchers round up their cattle on the same ground that they run them so hard that they kill their stock?

I'd say that when a rancher accidentally kills an animal out in the wilds of Colorado ... it is fair to say they were "trying to do the best job they could" to round up their cattle.

But then, I'm known for a long time that in most cases the best our government can do is not as good as private business.

It's kinda sad that more people don't care. Our government is wasting millions on the BLM's program rounding up horses with helicopters. It's easy to consider that if a round up takes X number of weeks and is costing a million bucks ... that helicopter contract is overcharging for services like the $16 muffins.

Yet, somewhere in Colorado there are five cowboys that could be given a very nice daily wage to go round up the horses on horseback without killing any of them because they'd be able to gauge the safety by what their own mounts. And trust me, this wouldn't be as difficult as they say. Wild horses are creatures of habit because they need water. Out here in the desert, they have to return to the same watering holes time and time again. Anyone with half a brain can find a wild horse in the desert. I get so frustrated at the immense stupidity of our government.

Uh-oh: Government Motors wants to track you – Glenn Beck

Yet those protestors on Wall Street that got violent mentioned in that last post probably support the politicians that ensured they can be tracked by the gov't in this creepy move. This is the stuff science fiction authors warned us about.

Media ignores Days of Rage “violence” – Glenn Beck

Looks to me like there should have been more arrests. The ladies filming this were in the way, and basically encouraging the protestors to resist arrest and give a good show. They too should also have been charged. Has to be some civil law that protects the rest of us from people that protest violently, and the rest of the protestors that egg them on.

Rainbow Cake Recipe at Love and Olive Oil

Media_httpwwwloveando_ecewg

I keep meaning to try this cake, so I'm saving this link to a blog with the recipe it for later when my nephews come to visit for Christmas. But, I don't need an entire cake sitting there staring at me for a few days. If I were inclined to start a food business, I'd find a way to bake one cupcake at a time for desert lovers that want their cake ... but not the whole cake.
