You Scream, I Scream, We All Scream For Ice Cream!


From an email,
A Good Lesson:
-- From a teacher in the Nashville area --
"We are worried about 'the cow' when it is all about the 'Ice Cream.'The most eye-opening civics lesson I ever had was while teaching 3rd grade.
The last Presidential election was heating up and some of the children showed an interest. I decided we would have an election for a class president.We would choose our nominees. They would make a campaign speech and the class would vote.To simplify the process, candidates were nominated by other class members.We discussed what kinds of characteristics these students should have.
We got many nominations and from those, Jamie and Olivia were picked to run for the top spot. The class had done a great job in their selections. Both candidates were good kids.
I thought Jamie might have an advantage because he got lots of parental support.
I had never seen Olivia's mother.
The day arrived when they were to make their speeches.
Jamie went first.
He had specific ideas about how to make our class a better place. He ended by promising to do his very best.
Everyone applauded and he sat down.
Now is was Olivia's turn to speak.
Her speech was concise. She said, "If you will vote for me, I will give you ice cream." She sat down.
The class went wild. "Yes! Yes! We want ice cream."
She surely would say more. She did not have to.
A discussion followed. How did she plan to pay for the ice cream? She wasn't sure. But no one pursued that question. They took her at her word.
Would her parents buy it or would the class pay for it...She didn't know.
The class really didn't care. All they were thinking about was ice cream...
Jamie was forgotten. Olivia won by a landslide.
Every time Barack Obama opened his mouth he offered ice cream and 51.4 % of the people reacted like nine year olds.
They want ice cream.
The other 48.6% percent know they're going to have to feed the cow and clean up the mess.
This is the ice cream Obama promised us!
Remember, the government cannot give anything to anyone that they have not first taken away from someone else.
Did you vote for the ice cream?
For a man who didn't give a <snip> about who paid for it.

Hey Sully16, I pay taxes for schools I don't use, I don't use all the libraries, roads I'll never drive on, and a transit rail system I don't ride, a baseball field I don't attend, a football field and stadium I don't attend, public buses I don't ride, welfare programs I don't use, pay for teacher's salaries, free lunch and supplies for kids that are not mine, school buses I don't ride, social security I might not ever get or disability I hope I never need.

I don't go to all the public parks, I can care less about the space program, or the wasted money on made up wars.

Our tax dollars pay for public defense, courts, prisons, and firefighters, and police officers.

Our taxes even pay for interest when the government borrow money and even for collecting taxes. Your tax dollars pay for all the elected officials. They have wonderful health plans and are set for life after their terms are served.

So the next time you take your kids to the free park, make sure you point out to them the people who don't deserve to be there because someone else paid for their ice cream.

Actually, you don't pay for anything, jan-jan.
You're one of the takers.
sully16Comment by sully16 - July 2, 2012, 7:55 pm
Janet, get off it, I pay those same taxes, and I am fed up , I am sick of picking up the slack for people who add nothing, contribute nothing, help with nothing,
I am sick of this moron president and his redistribution of wealth, I grew up in the sh*thole Detroit, clawed my out, made a better life I'll be ed if some crackhead whore, white trash willie, welfare queen kesha, is gonna keep enjoying the things my taxes provide, plus feed their skanky a$$es, I know exactly who we are taking care of.
sully16Comment by sully16 - July 2, 2012, 10:28 pm
And since you have pointed out all the taxes you pay, it must make you mad as H*ll everytime you open your pay envelope, cause I know I am.
Why would you support a law that gives us 21 more to pay, out of the goodness of your heart you want to support people who have no intentions of supporting themselves ?
Does it make you feel good to go without, so some loser can spend your tax dollars on beer, lottery, casinos, cigarettes?
Out of the goodness of your heart do you really want to pay the bill for illegals to live better than you?
The only people I know, who support, and I mean people I have had actual contact with, obumbum care, are people who think they are on the receiving end.
Ding dongs I work with who think they are getting a bundle of stuff for free.

sully16Comment by sully16 - July 2, 2012, 10:52 pm
If your poor in this country, it's pretty much your own fault. Worry about sensless crap, I don't call a government forcing me to take care of people who make bad choices senseless.
Why don't you go kill yourself, one less f*cking useless mouth to feed.
sully16Comment by sully16 - July 2, 2012, 10:59 pm
I know exactly what you want, and that sh*t ends, get an education and get a fuc&&ing job,

Thank you.
rdgrnrComment by rdgrnr - July 2, 2012, 11:27 pm
No, Louise, this society won't go on with or without us.
It will only go on with us.
When we're gone, your free stuff stops.
You oughta be more grateful.
sully16Comment by sully16 - July 2, 2012, 11:36 pm
I am so sick of hearing about the poor, does poor equal-black ? is that it, we want a black president to take wealth from whites and give it to blacks? because thats what I read. Why is no one screaming for better education, and better paying jobs for blacks and monorities? why is it always, free food, free rent, free medical, free phones, free clothes, free free free

Why aren't black leaders screaming for these things,
The trolls here never scream for better opportunities, just more free sh*t taken from someone else
sully16Comment by sully16 - July 2, 2012, 11:40 pm
Oh , yes I did, SNAP!

Right on, sister!
maximumfunComment by maximumfun - July 3, 2012, 2:42 am
sully... lol... you will hurt your neck if you keep that up!

the reality of our financial situation in this country is that 'freebies' will have to be curtailed so that we can get out of debt. there is no mulligan that the country can pull. we have to make hard choices and since we must (MUST) have a strong defense system, the obvious thing will be to cut aid programs.

taxes will most likely need to be raised as well, but not until the handouts are curtailed. and no president will be popular when he/she does that. however, after our period of 7 or so years of hardship are over, then we can start talking about what real needs there are, and use real money - not borrowed debt-ridden spending... to fund those programs that our local societies have not been able to sustain.

education, and training would be great... and manditory work-study instead of handouts. if you need/want money? then you get to do some of the jobs that the infastructure (our country) needs to have done...

it wont be pretty and it wont be easy, but ... it will feed you. if you DONT want to do the work? then earn it yourself, educate yourself... enlist in the military...

so something instead of sitting around being fat and sassy.
maximumfunComment by maximumfun - July 3, 2012, 2:44 am
... obviously that was NOT directed at sully... but at the ugly masses who are probably sitting with atrophied arm muscles from constantly having their hands out.
rdgrnrComment by rdgrnr - July 3, 2012, 11:21 am
Roger that, Max.
sully16Comment by sully16 - July 3, 2012, 11:57 am
Since bumbum took office, Americans claiming disability has risen from 7.5 to 8.3, welfare up 100%
People are taking the easy route, soon there won't be enough of us working to take care of these people.
maximumfunComment by maximumfun - July 3, 2012, 12:37 pm
sure there will sully. cuz we will cut the aide and suddenly our 'working ranks' will swell... and those 'foreign owned' businesses that are run by a seemingly endless supply of 'patels' will suddenly have US faces again. we need to stop the microwave mentality and get back to our roots and the work ethic that created our country.
sully16Comment by sully16 - July 3, 2012, 12:48 pm
Max for President ! Put the folks back to work, any company that won't allow full time employment, gets a big giant tax hike, Walmart comes to mind.
maximumfunComment by maximumfun - July 3, 2012, 5:37 pm
only if you would be my running mate sully... only then.
maximumfunComment by maximumfun - July 3, 2012, 10:54 pm

Louise - I am certain that you are unaware of how offensive you are coming across in your posts. Most likely you are utterly charming in person; but you might want to take a step back to see how your words paint you as a person you probably are not. Your words paint you as an ugly, twisted, and bitter person. Please be careful... at this point - you owe sully a sincere apology for your latest personal character assassination.

Pee Wee had the White House, Senate and House for 2 whole years and could have accomplished everything and ANYTHING he wanted to and promised to but he chose not to. So we can't blame decent patriotic Americans for that. We did what we could. We rose up and formed the THE TEA PARTY and slapped his scrawny-ass silly in the mid-terms. I'm sure you remember that.

You're right though, here we are going on 4 years with him and still no jobs.

The only hope I can give you on that front is having you know that the THE TEA PARTY is waiting in the wings once again, ready to marshal our forces for another full-frontal assault and devastating knockout-blow in the polling places in the upcoming elections. We intend to deal him a CRUSHING defeat at the ballot box. I hope you can take comfort in that.

Also I hope you will join us in our effort to return America to some semblance of decency and decorum again. I'm sure you can find a branch of THE TEA PARTY to join in the Detroit area or I could have them contact you if you prefer.

Power to the people! Right on!
Comment by louise black - July 5, 2012, 3:51 pm
Yeh! right Ridge! when hell freeze over. I will not be what I hate the most : Stockholm Syndrone victim. For the last time I am not in the Detroit area. I wish I was.
Comment by louise black - July 5, 2012, 4:05 pm
Maximumfun , sorry dear there will not be any apologizing here, maybe you should be saying that to your BF. I will not stand by and let anybody attack me personal ,when they don't even know me . The only sorry i have is for the person blog i put it on. I don't disrespect people unless they do me first. If you want to come off all ghetto on me don't think that I am a croward with words or in person. I am not violent,but don't go there with me. Now! tell her to apolozie!
maximumfunComment by maximumfun - July 5, 2012, 5:52 pm
Louise - quite honestly I was more concerned with how you were portraying yourself... whether you are too proud to apologize for your own actions independent of what others do... that is between you and God. But sometimes it's nice to have someone care enough to let us know when our 'slip is showing'. I meant no disrespect toward you, and felt/feel only sadness.
sully16Comment by sully16 - July 6, 2012, 8:36 am
Oh stuff it Louise, you came after me FIRST telling me to kill myself, DO YOU UNDERSTAND ?
It is you who did all the name calling, DO YOU UNDERSTAND ?
It is you making the veiled threats, DO YOU UNDERSTAND?
It is you who always bring race into the equation, DO YOU UNDERSTAND?
Yes America hired a black man to be their president but, they are going to fire him because he's an IDIOT!
