    National Empty Chair Day Photos, Part 3

    National Empty Chair Day Photos, Part 3

    UPDATE – No new submissions being accepted for now, the response was so overwhelming that there’s already a huge backlog.

    I’m breaking this down into multiple posts because the volume of submissions was so high – the enthusiasm has been overwhelming (that’s the word of the day) at several levels.

    Unfortunately, those who did not follow the instruction to include town/state have been put to the side because I don’t have time to email back and forth seeking that information.

    I’ll continue to post what I can, but it is unlikely I can get to all of them, so my apologies in advance.

    Commenter Kitty from Painted Post, NY, decided to make two statements:

    From Derek in Hollywood, FL, who went for a threesome, “Barack Obama, Deval Patrick and Elizabeth “RunsWithScammers” Warren have joined me for a panel. Please ask them the hard question but nothing about the economy, jobs, the last four years, records, or welfare reform.”

    Kate from McKinney, TX asks: “Do I win the award for the most colorful chair?”

    Susan From Melbourne Beach FLL


    Calvin from Oak Ridge North, TX, hits a familiar theme:

    From Dwayne, who writes: “I’m from Texas, but have to work as an architect in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Obama is here, ready to bow to King Abdullah.”

    And More

    From Weirddave in Towson, MD:

    From Kevin in Goldsboro, NC, who writes: “My contributions to Empty Chair Day. Yup, we seem to own the same kitchen chairs as Clint! Too bad I couldn’t find any left-handed golf clubs….”

    From Pamela in Tucson, who writes: “I know postings are supposedly closed but please gve us break here in AZ. We’re a few hours behind. 🙂 ”

    From Bob in Tomaston, CT:


    Donations tax deductible
    to the full extent allowed by law.



    To Dwayne in Saudi,
    Go here, scroll down a bit. Be well.

    I first heard of this over at and the next thing I know it had gone viral. Checking time stamps from when Miri first proposed the idea to when it became an “official holiday” is amazing…… like a wild fire.

    I’m posting this again. I want to make sure everyone sees this:


    Has anybody seen this?? The GOP hacks HAVE found a way to sabotage the gift Clint Eastwood has given!

    “Clint Eastwood axed from RNC video:”

    A Romney adviser said the presidential candidate found Eastwood’s skit funny, but other Republicans said it disrupted the flow of the final night at the national convention, the report said.

    “I personally think Clint Eastwood was a mistake before he came out,” former California Senate candidate Carly Fiorina said.

    Former presidential candidate Newt Gingrich also called the performance ‘a distraction’.

    AMAZING!! Once again, we’re at war with incompetents in our own party willing to lose for the sake of who-knows-what?!

    Just out of curiosity, what is this site’s daily traffic record? How far are we from breaking that record today (if we haven’t already broken it)?

    So far today, you’ve got over 77k visits and 87k page views (and those counts are still rapidly growing).

    Since it is obvious y’all are overwhelmed and I cannot send you my picture to celebrate the day, I figure I tell y’all what I did.

    I placed an Adirondack chair on my front lawn, with my “USA” and “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” door decorations in the background.

    And, as a nice little touch for anyone who may ask, I placed a copy of my children’s favorite bedtime story: “The Emperor’s New Clothes”.
