May 17, 2015, 4:10 pmNaval Officer...
A young Naval Officer was in a terrible car accident, but due to the heroics of the hospital staff the only permanent injury was the loss of one ear.
Since he wasn't physically impaired he remained in the military and eventually became an Admiral. However, during his career he was always sensitive about his appearance.
One day the Admiral was interviewing two Navy Master Chiefs and a Marine Sergeant Major for his personal staff.
The first Master Chief was a Surface Navy type and it was a great interview.
At the end of the interview the Admiral asked him, "Do you notice anything different about me?"
The Master Chief answered, "Why yes. I couldn't help but notice you are missing your starboard ear, so I don't know whether this impacts your hearing on that side."
The Admiral got very angry at this lack of tact and threw him out of his office.
The next candidate, an Aviation Master Chief, when asked this same question, answered, "Well yes, you seem to be short one ear."
The Admiral threw him out also.
The third interview was with the Marine Sergeant Major. He was articulate, extremely sharp, and seemed to know more than the two Master Chiefs put together.
The Admiral wanted this guy, but went ahead with the same question.
"Do you notice anything different about me?"
To his surprise the Sergeant Major said, "Yes, sir. You wear contact lenses."
The Admiral was impressed and thought to himself, what an incredibly tactful Marine.
"And how do you know that?" the Admiral asked.
The Sergeant Major replied, "Well, sir, it's pretty hard to wear glasses with only one <snip>in' ear."

May 16, 2015, 1:38 pmThe $50 Lesson...
While I was working in the flower beds in the front yard, my neighbors stopped to chat as they returned home from walking their dog. During our friendly conversation, I asked their little girl what she wanted to be when she grew up. She said she wanted to be President some day.
Both of her parents, Democratic Party members were standing there, so I asked her, "If you were President what would be the first thing you would do?"
She replied... "I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people."
Her parents beamed with pride! "Wow... what a worthy goal!" I said. "But you don't have to wait until you're President to do that!" I told her.
"What do you mean?" she replied.
So I told her, "You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and trim my hedge, and I'll pay you $50. Then you can go over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use toward food and a new house."
She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked, "Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50?"
I said, "Welcome to the Republican Party."
Her parents aren't speaking to me anymore.
May 15, 2015, 9:35 pm"under God"...
New Jersey Judge David F. Bauman recently dismissed a case orchestrated by a student, his parents, and the American Humanist Association and ruled that hearing the words "under God" during the Pledge of Allegiance does not violate the constitutional rights of atheist students. In his decision released Monday, Bauman brilliantly laid to rest the notion that the phrase can, or should, be erased from America's history.
"As a matter of historical tradition, the words 'under God' can no more be expunged from the national consciousness than the words 'In God We Trust' from every coin in the land, than the words 'so help me God' from every presidential oath since 1789, or than the prayer that has opened every congressional session of legislative business since 1787," the judge wrote in his decision.
Bauman added, "The Pledge of Allegiance, in this historical context, is not to be viewed, and has never been viewed, as a religious exercise."
The student's lawsuit, filed last year, argued against the phrase being recited during school hours because he felt it singled out atheists and non-believers, making them feel like "second-class citizens." His attorneys argued that hearing the pledge would cause atheist students to feel "just as America's Jews, Hindus, and Muslims would feel excluded, marginalized and stigmatized if they were told by their government on a daily basis that the United States is one nation 'under Jesus.'"
However, Judge Bauman didn't see it that way. He explained that the various references to God in the nation's history, documents, and practices indicates no endorsement of a specific faith, but simply a recognition to the importance religion has played in the founding of America.
The unnamed student tried for equal protection under the New Jersey state constitution, only to be reminded by Bauman that it also references "Almighty God:"
Under plaintiffs' reasoning, the very constitution under which plaintiffs seek redress for perceived atheistic marginalization could itself be deemed unconstitutional, an absurd proposition which plaintiffs do not and cannot advance here. Protecting students from viewpoints and ideas that may offend or upset them is not and has never been the role of public schools in America.
Judge Bauman advised the student to remain silent during the Pledge of Allegiance if he so chooses. There are no plans to appeal the decision.

Flashback: To Protect Clintons, ABC Censored and Buried 'Path to 9/11′ Miniseries

Breitbart Big Government ^ | 5-14-15
The length to which ABC, its news division, and its parent company (Disney) have gone to protect and curry favor with the Clintons is almost impossible to grasp. To begin with, in 1996, ABC News hired George Stephanopoulos, a former Clinton campaign and White House official. Within a few years he would become the ABC new division's chief anchor and political reporter. Then, just today, we learn that ABC News and Stephanopoulos are involved in a massive conflict of interest � a $50,000 donation Stephanopoulos made to the Clinton Foundation. That's right, the symbol of ABC News has an ongoing...

ALERT: Saudi Nationals Attempt Entry To U.S. Military Base
jlh243_1 32 minutes ago
America is under intense attack from within and from the outside. And the sheeple just want their obamaphones, food stamps, welfare, abortion, queer marriage and queer "rights", the abolition of God from every public realm, American citizens disarmed, and full blown communism instituted. And they all want the "rich" to pay for it because they are to lazy and worthless to work for it. They think that cozying up to muslims is a way to safe way to destroy those "radical Christians" without getting their hands dirty, but those bad old "radical Christians" are the ones who actually care enough about them to try to save them, yet they don't care, all they want is to keep sucking the government teat for all they can get.
But when they get their way, theirs will be the first heads to roll under the muslims swords and knives! Stupid mislead idiots, that is what the democrat voting base is comprised of.

Powerline ^ | May 12, 2015 | John Hindraker
I wrote (Barack Obama, Media Critic) about President Obama's appearance at the Catholic-Evangelical Leadership Summit on poverty at Georgetown, where he singled out Fox News for criticism of its news coverage. He did eventually get around to ( talking about poverty:)"Those who are doing better and better, more skilled, more educated, � luckier � having greater advantages are withdrawing from the commons," he said. "Kids start going to private schools....But wait! President Obama went to a ritzy private school in Honolulu, and his daughters attend Washington's toniest private school, Sidwell Friends. Was Obama engaging in a rare moment of self-criticism?...

May 7, 2015, 3:56 pmNymphomaniac Convention...
A man boarded an airplane and took his seat. As he settled in, he glanced up and saw the most beautiful woman boarding the plane.
He soon realized she was heading straight towards his seat
As fate would have it, she took the seat right beside his.
Eager to strike up a conversation he blurted out,
"Business trip or pleasure?"
She turned, smiled and said, "Business."
I'm going to the Annual Nympho- maniacs of America Convention in Boston ."
He swallowed hard.
Here was the most gorgeous woman he had ever seen sitting next to him, and she was going to a meeting of nymphomaniacs.
Struggling to maintain his composure, he calmly asked, "What's your business role at this convention?"
" Lecturer," she responded.
" I use information that I have learned from my personal experiences to debunk some of the popular myths about sexuality."
" Really?" he said.
"And what kind of myths are there?"
" Well," she explained, " One popular myth is that African-American men are the most well-endowed of all men, when in fact it is the Native American Indian who is most likely to possess that trait.
Another popular myth is that Frenchmen are the best lovers, when actually it is men of Jewish descent who are the best.
I have also discovered that the lover with absolutely the best stamina is the Southern Redneck."
Suddenly the woman became a little uncomfortable and blushed. "I'm sorry," she said, " I shouldn't really be discussing all of this with you. I don't even know your name..."
" Tonto," the man said,
" Tonto Goldstein, but my friends call me Bubba."

April 29, 2015, 7:22 pmAllen West on Baltimore...
Everyone wants to have an honest conversation about race, so let's us endeavor to do just that. As I watched the news reports from Baltimore and heard all the condemnations from some about being kept down and the lack of jobs, opportunity, good schools � I have to ask, why do these blacks keep voting for the same people? And this isn't a phenomenon isolated to Baltimore.
Yes, the dirty little secret that no one wants to admit is that Baltimore, and so many other urban areas and inner city communities in America are a reflection of the abject failure of liberal progressive socialist policies as advanced by the Democrat party
The preeminent question is whether or not those in Baltimore and other places will finally recognize who is truly responsible for their plight.
Steadfast and Loyal
