August 8, 2013, 8:07 pm25 Years Ago Today- 8-8-88
The lights came on in Wrigley Field, Chicago, home of the Cubs.
The game was rained out, and as one of the announcers said, even God didn't want the Cubs playing at night!
August 3, 2013, 1:41 amDuck Joke
Subject: The best duck joke ever.....
The barman looks at him and says,
"Hang on! You're a duck."
"I see your eyes are working," replies the duck.
"And you can talk!"Exclaims the barman.
"I see your ears are working, too," Says the duck. "Now if you don't mind, can I have my beer and my sandwich please?"
"Certainly, sorry about that," says the barman as he pulls the duck's pint. "It's just we don't get many ducks in this pub.. What are you doing round this way?"
"I'm working on the building site across the road," Explains the duck. "I'm a plasterer."
The flabbergasted barman cannot believe the duck and wants to learn more, but takes the hint when the duck pulls out a newspaper from his bag and proceeds to read it.
So, the duck reads his paper, drinks his beer, eats his sandwich, bids the barman good day and leaves.
The same thing happens for two weeks.
Then one day the circus comes to town.
The ringmaster comes into the pub for a pint and the barman says to him "You're with the circus, aren't you? Well, I know this duck that could be just brilliant in your circus. He talks, drinks beer, eats sandwiches, reads the newspaper and everything!"
"Sounds marvellous,"says the ringmaster, handing over his business card."Get him to give me a call."
So the next day when the duck comes into the pub the barman says,"Hey Mr. Duck, I reckon I can line you up with a top job, paying really good money."
"I'm always looking for the next job,"Says the duck."Where is it?"
"At the circus," Says the barman.
"The circus?" repeats the duck.
"That's right," Replies the barman.
"The circus?"The duck asks again. “with the big tent?"
"Yeah," the barman replies.
"With all the animals who live in cages, and performers who live in caravans?" says the duck.
"Of course," the barman replies.
"And the tent has canvas sides and a big canvas roof with a hole in the middle?" persists the duck.
"That's right!" says the barman.
The duck shakes his head in amazement, and says .. . . .
"What the hell would they want with a plasterer??!"
August 3, 2013, 1:39 amNote on the Fridge
Subject: Fridge not working?
When I came home from golfing today, the wife left a note on the fridge:
It's not working, gone to stay with my Mother.
I can't take it anymore.
I opened the fridge, the light came on, and the beer was cold.
What the hell is she talking about?
July 31, 2013, 1:13 amCause of Wild Fires
UNREAL!!!! the likely cause of the 346 homes lost in the Waldo Canyon fire in Colorado Springs........and now 510 homes in Black Forest at Monument, 12 miles north of Colorado Springs,
Hope you will see fit to listen to this....It's downright scary! Terrorist behind fires in the western U.S.
This is very interesting and worth the time to hear.
FIRE WARFARE - This is major crime running unchecked.
This is why they waited so long to tell us what started the Waldo Canyon fire in Colorado. The public still has not been told what was used to start the fire. Worth the time to watch
July 29, 2013, 1:25 amUnder the reign of fools
There are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation.
One is by sword... The other is by debt." John Adams 1826Unbelievable but true: http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2013/jan/03/pork-laden-relief-bill-par-for-course/Under the Reign of Fools- -So this is why Speaker of the House John Boehner would not sign off on the $51 BILLION relief bill for Hurricane Sandy and Chris Christie made a big stink over it........turns out Boehner knew what he was doing......If you think the government doesn't have a spending problem, just check the items added to the Hurricane Sandy Relief bill sent by the Senate to the House. Do any of them have any relation to the hurricane?$4 million for the Kennedy Space Center .$8 million to buy cars and equipment for the Homeland Security and Justice departments.$20 million for a nationwide "Water Resources Priorities Study".$41 million for eight military bases including Guantanamo Bay.$56.8 million for charting the debris from last year's Japanese tsunami.$58.8 million for forest restoration on private land.$100 million for the federal Head Start day care program.$150 million in funding for Alaskan fisheries.$188 million for new Amtrak lines (not repair, whole new lines).$197 million "to. protect coastal ecosystems and habitat impacted by Hurricane Sandy."$5.3 billion to the Army Corps of Engineers (that's more than their annual budget).$10.78 billion for public transportation, most of which is allocated to future construction and improvements, not disaster relief.$13 billion would go to "mitigation" projects to prepare for future storms.$17 billion for wasteful Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), a program that has become notorious for its use as a backdoor earmark program.How does any of this have anything to do with immediate emergency relief for the victims of Hurricane Sandy?
Harry Reid passed this through the Senate then sent them all home, so that the House couldn't send it back in time to remove the pork. All they could do was vote it down. These Senators don't care about the victims of Sandy , it's all just business as usual.
"If you do not take an interest in the affairs of your government, then you are doomed to live under the rule of fools." – PlatoThe problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."
July 24, 2013, 6:01 pmObama then, 2004: stand your ground advocate
|Obama changes stance on "stand your ground"|
"Same-sex marriage isn't the only subject on which President Obama's views have evolved. In his remarks last Friday on George Zimmerman's acquittal, the President said it would be wise to 'examine' state and local laws governing the use of firearms in self-defense. He suggested that 'stand your ground' provisions are 'sending a message' that 'someone who is armed potentially has the right to use those firearms even if there's a way for them to exit from a situation.' He asked: 'Is that really going to be contributing to the kind of peace and security and order that we'd like to see?' It turns out that Mr. Obama participated in such an examination almost a decade ago and emerged as a stand-your-ground proponent. Illinois Review, a conservative blog, recently unearthed Illinois Senate records showing that then-state Senator Obama voted for and even co-sponsored a 2004 bill that expanded the protection of the state's 1961 stand-your-ground law to include immunity from civil liability for people who use deadly force to defend themselves or their property. The bill wasn't controversial in the liberal legislature, passing the Senate without dissent and the state House with only two nays before then-Governor Rod Blagojevich, also a Democrat, signed it. ... U.S. Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois, a member of the Judiciary Committee, says he'll hold a subcommittee hearing on the topic this fall. Maybe he should call his former junior colleague as a witness and ask him to explain what message he was seeking to send in 2004."
July 12, 2013, 11:08 amObama signs Exec. order to allow shutdown of all
of US communications
The Federal Government must have the ability to communicate at all times and under all circumstances to carry out its most critical and time sensitive mission."
The American public should be concerned about what this "mission" could be. In a presidential election, one candidate's mission may not be the same as his opponents. RT quotes the president as saying:
"Such communications must be possible under all circumstances to ensure national security, effectively manage emergencies and improve national security.."
The fact that our nation needs so much "national security" is puzzling, given the fact that President Obama has declared himself leader of the front that has ended terrorism in the U.S. It seems like now, more than ever, our nation is in peril according to the State Department; but many U.S. citizens are asking themselves, "From what?", or better yet, "From who?"

June 15, 2013, 6:53 pmThe Nun and the Vow of Silence
A woman decided to become a nun and joined a convent.
She had to take a vow of silence and was told once a year she'd be called in to the main office and allowed to say two words.
A year goes by, she's called in and says, "Room cold."
OK, we'll see you in a year they tell her.
The next year she says, "Food bad."
OK, see you next year.
The next year she says, "I quit", and they tell her, "We've been expecting this out of you because ever since you've been here you've done nothing but complain and complain!"

"If someone wants to know why their own government has decided to go on a
fishing expedition through every personal record or private document --
through library books they've read and phone calls they've made -- this
legislation [the Patriot Act] gives people no rights to appeal the need for
such a search in a court of law. ... This is just plain wrong."
-Obama in 2005

April 22, 2013, 12:25 pmCrazies?
Once again, political correctness is never a two way street.
Think About It, then Pass It On....... PLEASE !!!
According to the left wing zealots we have in politics, we are not supposed to judge all Muslims by the acts of a few "crazies".
But the acts of a few American "crazies" is enough to judge all Americans who own guns!
Dictators Prefer Unarmed Citizens.
