Redneck 911 call......

Well Sir...this is old...but I still gets a kick outta it everytime I see's it....

A simple one question test.....

A One Question Test!

This test only has one question, but it's a very important one. By giving an honest answer, you will discover where you stand morally. The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation in which you will have to make a decision. Remember that your answer needs to be honest, yet spontaneous. Please scroll down slowly and give due consideration to each line.

You are in Florida, Miami to be specific. There is chaos all around you caused by a hurricane with severe flooding. This is a flood of biblical proportions. You are photojournalist working for a major newspaper, and you're caught in the middle of this epic disaster. The situation is nearly hopeless.You're trying to shoot career-making photos. There are houses and people swirling around you, some disappearing under the water. Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury.

Suddenly you see a woman in the water. She is fighting for her life, trying not to be taken down with the debris. You move closer. Somehow the woman looks familiar. You suddenly realize who it is. It's Hillary Clinton! At the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to take her under forever. You have two options: You can save the life of Hillary Clinton or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the death of one of the world's most powerful women (in her mind, at least).

Here's the question, and please give an honest answer.......

"Would you select high contrast color film, or would you go with the classic simplicity of black and white?"

I'm so sick of MSM lie's...the Press ignores 2,700 military men & women..

Well Bluto's request, I borrowed and posted this....and I agree completely....

The Latest Mainstream Media Lie... a lie of omission.

John Hinderaker at Powerline writes about The Appeal for Courage:

As an American currently serving my nation in uniform, I respectfully urge my political leaders in Congress to fully support our mission in Iraq and halt any calls for retreat. I also respectfully urge my political leaders to actively oppose media efforts which embolden my enemy while demoralizing American support at home.

The War in Iraq is a necessary and just effort to bring freedom to the Middle East and protect America from further attack.It was signed by 2,700 active duty service men and women, and the only place you'll read about it is on blogs like this one. Not your local newspaper, not CNN, certainly not NBC or CBS - not even Fox, so often accused of leaning right. But you'll certainly hear about three disgruntled generals and their hissy fits over strategy and tactics.

That's news, at least as profoundly biased mainstream media types define it. It should shame every one of us that those who are putting their lives at risk for our freedom and safety feel the need to publicly ask the folks at home and their representatives to grow a pair of balls.

As a Disabled Vet, I am becoming so ashamed of our Government...and most certainly the MSM of this country....

Children Bad For the Planet

It was only a matter of time for the global warming crowd to start pointing the finger as to who is the worst for the planet. It comes as no surprise that the ones picked are the second most vulnerable people on the earth. First being the unborn, which the Liberals of the world have successfully made into useless garbage, now they are targeting the children.(source)

We are now equating a living, breathing, person to 620 flights from London to New York. How absolutely ridiculous is this? Why not suggest no transcontinental flights? Why not have the populations be fined for being overweight? It seems like they use more than a child. Wait a minute, my husband is 15" taller than me, certainly tall people leave a bigger carbon footprint than me. What about those adventurous people, they should be fined, because they destroy the environment.I think that the Global Warming movement needs to be first on the chopping block. How many morons do you need to sell a major lie? Apparently millions. One to be the head honcho, and the rest to bow down and blindly follow.Combine the Global Warming nuts with the Mother Earth pagans and there are problems. The Mother Earth pagans come right out and say that 1 billion people need to go. Oh, and remember the charm of the Mennonites, they want us all to live like that, and simplify, simplify, simplify.(source)

I wonder when the rest of us will stand up and respond to these beliefs that these groups have. God tells us in Genesis 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.Those of the Global Warming fad, misunderstand or haven't read God's word. Man is to replenish the earth. By having children, many, hardworking, faithful, God fearing children. And he is to subdue the earth, not worship the earth. Subdue means to conquer and to tame. Certainly not what the tree huggers teach. We are to respect the earth, but if it is between a tree surviving and a child being born, it is a no brainer.

Now I know that many in the world are giving birth to drug-altered children, but that does not change my opinion on the value of life over the earth. Life over Global Warming.

Remember what I wrote before, if global warming was true Al Gore would not be wasting so much, because according to his group, we are ten years from a catastrophe.The time is now. We need to speak before fiction becomes truth. Be the light in your neighborhood and stop this insanity.

....this Cookie's own personal opinion is that if we're going eliminate and get rid of anyone, let us start with Al Gore and his Leer jet riding, Hollywood tree hugging, insane idiot eco-nazis and others of this alleged "politically correct" ilk....

SAVE THE CHILDREN....... my God....that life in the womb is completely defenseless and helpless....


A couple a Dessert recipe's fer y'all....

Well be a couple of great recipe's y'all can use fer dessert, or an evening snack. These were sent to me by that expert on good old fashioned home cookin, Sue Gertson frum Eagle Lake, Texas.....

Pumpkin Spice Cake With Honey Cream Cheese Frosting

For Cake:
1 stick (8 Tbsp.) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 ¼ c. light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 c. fresh or canned pure pumpkin (about 1/2 of a 15 ounce can)
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 c. sifted cake flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/8 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 c. (120 ml) buttermilk, room temperature

For Frosting:
8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 c. unsalted butter, room temperature
2 Tbsp. honey
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. confectioners' (powdered or icing) sugar, sifted

For Garnish:
¼ cup walnuts or pecans (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350-degrees F. and place rack in center of oven. Grease two 8- or 9-inch cake pans, lining the bottom with parchment. Set aside.

In the bowl of your electric mixer (or with a hand mixer), cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes). Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add the pumpkin puree and vanilla and beat until incorporated.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and spices. Add the flour mixture and buttermilk alternately to the pumpkin batter, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Divide the batter between the prepared pans. Bake for approximately 25 - 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes and then invert and remove the cakes from their pans. Cool completely before frosting.

Place the cream cheese and butter in the bowl of an electric mixer (or use a hand mixer) and beat until smooth. Add the honey, vanilla and confectioners' sugar and beat (slowly at first) to combine. Adjust syrup or sugar until you have the right consistency.

Place one of the cake layers, top side down, on a serving plate. Frost with a layer of icing. Place the second cake, top side up, onto the first layer and frost. Garnish with nuts if desired. Refrigerate but bring to room temperature before serving.
