...and Susan Gertson and Ben Stein reminds us who the REAL Stars are.....


This is a hoot, but I suspect the minister didn't appreciate it.

A minister was completing a temperance sermon. With great emphasis he said,

"If I had all the beer in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river."

With even greater emphasis he said, "And if I had All the wine in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river."

And then finally, shaking his fist in the air, he Said, "And if I had all the whiskey in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river."

Sermon complete, he sat down.

The song leader stood very cautiously and announced with a smile, nearly laughing,

"For our closing song, Let us sing Hymn #365, "Shall We Gather at the River."

Smile, life is too short not to !!

Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary...WHAT does yur Garden Grow???

...and here be a differant kind of "pair"....

...and whatdya call these..."Jalopenis peppers"....


Hmmm...interesting take.....

Subject: FW: What a Black Columnist has to say about Obama.

Ken Blackwell - Columnist for the New York Sun

It's an amazing time to be alive in America. We're in a year
of firsts in this presidential election: the first viable woman candidate;
the first viable African-American candidate; and, a candidate who is the
first frontrunning freedom fighter over 70. The next president of America
will be a first.

We won't truly be in an election of firsts, however, until we
judge every candidate by where they stand. We won't arrive where we should
be until we no longer talk about skin color or gender. Now that Barack
Obama steps to the front of the Democratic field, we need to stop talking about
his race, and start talking about his policies and his politics. < /SPAN>

The reality is this: Though the Democrats will not have a
nominee until August, unless Hillary Clinton drops out, Mr. Obama is now
the frontrunner, and its time America takes a closer and deeper look at him.

Some pundits are calling him the next John F. Kennedy. He's not. He's the next George McGovern. And it's time people learned the facts.

Because the truth is that Mr. Obama is the single most liberal
senator in the entire U.S. Senate. He is more liberal than Ted Kennedy,
Bernie Sanders, or Mrs. Clinton. Never in my life have I seen a presidential
frontrunner whose rhetoric is so far removed from his record. Walter Mondale
promised to raise our taxes, and he lost. George McGovern promised military
weakness, and he lost. Michael Dukakis promised a liberal domestic agenda,
and he lost.

Yet Mr. Obama is promising all those things, and he's not
behind in the polls. Why? Because the press has dealt with him as if he were
in a beauty pageant. Mr. Obama talks about getting past party, getting past
red and blue, to lead the United States of America. But let's look at the
more defined strokes of who he is underneath this superficial "beauty."

Start with national security, since the president's most
important duties are as commander-in-chief. Over the summer, Mr. Obama
talked about invading Pakistan, a nation armed with nuclear weapons; meeting
without preconditions with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who vows to destroy Israel
and create another Holocaust; and Kim Jong II, who is murdering and starving
his people, but emphasized that the nuclear option was off the table against
terrorists - something no president has ever taken off the table since we
created nuclear weapons in the 1940s. Even Democrats who have worked in
national security condemned all of those remarks. Mr. Obama is a
foreign-policy novice who would put our national security at risk.

Next, consider economic policy. For all its faults, our health
care system is the strongest in the world. And free trade agreements,
created by Bill Clinton as well as President Bush, have made more goods more
affordable so that even people of modest means can live a life that no one
imagined a generation ago. Yet Mr. Obama promises to raise taxes on "the
rich." How to fix Social Security? Raise taxes. How to fix Medicare? Raise
taxes. Prescription drugs? Raise taxes. Free college? Raise taxes. Socialize
medicine? Raise taxes. His solution to everything is to have government take
it over. Big Brother on steroids, funded by your paycheck.

Finally, look at the social issues. Mr. Obama had the audacity
to open a stadium rally by saying, "All praise and glory to God!" but says
that Christian leaders speaking for life and marriage have "hijacked" -
hijacked - Christianity. He is pro-partial birth abortion, and promises to
appoint Supreme Court justices who will rule any restriction on it
unconstitutional. He espouses the abortion views of Margaret Sanger, one of
the early advocates of racial cleansing. His spiritual leaders endorse
homosexual marriage, and he is moving in that direction. In Illinois, he
refused to vote against a statewide ban on all handguns in the state. These
are radical left, Hollywood, and San Francisco values, not Middle America

The real Mr. Obama is an easy target for the general election.
Mrs. Clinton is a far tougher opponent. But Mr. Obama could win if people
don't start looking behind his veneer and flowery speeches. His vision of
"bringing America together" means saying that those who disagree with his
agenda for America are hijackers or warmongers. Uniting the country means
adopting his liberal agenda and abandoning any conflicting beliefs.

But right now everyone is talking about how eloquent of a
speaker he is and - yes - they're talking about his race. Those should never
be the factors on which we base our choice for president. Mr. Obama's
radical agenda sets him far outside the American mainstream, to the left of
Mrs. Clinton.

It's time to talk about the real Barack Obama. In an election
of firsts, let's first make sure we elect the person who is qualified to be
our president in a nuclear age during a global civilizational war.

According to The Book of Revelations:

The anti-christ will be a man, in his 40s, of MUSLIM descent,
who will deceive the nations with persuasive language, and have a MASSIVE
Christ-like appeal....the prophecy says that people will flock to him and he
will promise false hope and world peace, and when he is in power, will
destroy everything.

Is it OBAMA??

I STRONGLY URGE each one of you to repost this as many times
as you can! Each opportunity that you have to send it to a friend or media
outlet...do it!

If you think I am crazy...I'm sorry but I refuse to take a
chance on the "unknown" candidate.
