Love this guy! He makes truthful statments in the simplest of terms regarding the so called "complicated issues"...

Saw this over at The Jawa Report.



Best explanation we have seen yet !!!


Shortly after class, an economics student approaches his economics
professor and says, "I don't understand this stimulus bill. Can you
explain it to me?"

The professor replied, "I don't have any time to explain it at my
office, but if you come over to my house on Saturday and help me with my weekend project, I'll be glad to explain it to you." The student agreed.

At the agreed-upon time, the student showed up at the professor's
house. The professor stated that the weekend project involved his
backyard pool.

They both went out back to the pool, and the professor handed the
student a bucket. Demonstrating with his own bucket, the professor
said, "First, go over to the deep end, and fill your bucket with as
much water as you can." The student did as he was instructed.

The professor then continued, "Follow me over to the shallow end, and then dump all the water from your bucket into it." The student was naturally confused, but did as he was told.

The professor then explained they were going to do this many more times, and began walking back to the deep end of the pool.

The confused student asked, "Excuse me, but why are we doing this?"

The professor matter-of-factly stated that he was trying to make the
shallow end much deeper.

The student didn't think the economics professor was serious, but
figured that he would find out the real story soon enough.

However, after the 6th trip between the shallow end and the deep end, the student began to become worried that his economics professor had gone mad. The student finally replied,

"All we're doing is wasting valuable time and effort on unproductive pursuits. Even worse, when this process is all over, everything will be at the same level it was
before, so all you'll really have accomplished is the destruction of what could have been truly productive action!"

The professor put down his bucket and replied with a smile,

"Congratulations. You now understand the stimulus bill."

INSANITY!!! Does anyone else see and feel what I am??

I just added this video to the below post. I think they go hand in hand on several levels......

Gotta Thank "Charlie The Cop" fer that one....

Well Folks, as most of you know, a "Blog" is sorta like a diary fer folks to put their thoughts and ideas inta print. Some folks, like Cookie, have opted to use my blog to, for the most part, post humor, cartoons and anecdotes that tend to bring a smile to someones face. I've chosen this format because there is so much seriousness and negative/depressing news on many of the other blogs and "News Sites" that many folks have told me that they visit my blog regularly so as to take a break from it all. For my own personal comic relief from the insanity of this new administration and the world, I regularly visit my buddy "The Chief's" blog. Now, there is more than enough insanity over at "The Chief's" place as well, but at least he's a funny nut-case".

OK, to my point. I'm not going to belabor all the instances and events of left (and in a few cases- Right) wing insanity we have been seeing/reading for the last couple of years as I'm sure if you've been reading and keeping up with things that you are completely aware of them. I have found that by-and-large, most bloggers keep current on the events of government and politics. I'm not going to target various Democrats or Republicans for what has been going on (although I have my own idea's). God knows there is more than enough blame to go around, and I prefer to stick with a saying the Japanese have (which I really like), "Fix the problem...NOT THE BLAME."

Common sense seems to have almost completely disappeared, especially in governments, and priorities have been turned upside down. All one has to do is watch a few Glenn Beck shows, or an honest newscast (also very rare) and the news is most depressing and indeed very scary. BTW, when Glenn first got his own TV show on FOX at 5PM, I watched him very regularly, but what I've found is that although Glenn has been great for raising the alarm and making us aware of many political and National events/actions/bills/stories that the MSM intentionally ignore, and/or omit, he doesn't seem to offer any solutions. Because I find that after each of his shows I am left with feelings of despair, loss, and hopelessness, I stopped watching him for awhile. Yes Glenn, I'm aware there are dire problems but give me some suggestions as to how I (little old me) can do something about it.

My question to all of you is this. Is anyone else as concerned and scared about what the hell is happening in our once great country as I am? Where have all the time proven positive values, traditions and ethics that I grew up with gone? This IS NOT the country I grew up in and fought for.

We have moved into an entitlement philosophy where huge portions of the population are now having their need's met through the labors of the rest of us. I've often thought that should an alien race of people ever come to our planet knowing nothing about us, they would see some folks not working at all and having their needs met by government, and they would also see the other folks working everyday and, in effect, supporting the folks receiving entitlements. Their conclusion could only be that the folks receiving government assistance from having their housing, food, education and health care paid for by the workers, are somehow "special, or elite", and/or, the working half must be slaves. Their next question would be, "Just what on Earth is the incentive for some folks to labor daily only to be forced to give portions of their earnings to the government for "re-distribution" to these "special "people? What do they receive in return for their hard work?

There are many of you reading this who are of my generation, and guess what, there's fewer and fewer of us everyday mates! Many of us fought in conflicts all around the world to maintain and protect the Constitution of these United States and our freedom as a people. I don't know about anyone else, but lately, hardly a day goes by that I don't see those freedoms quietly and steadily slipping away or compromised, and most troubling, our Constitution is being usurped and/or ignored, by both parties BTW. Look at the "Fairness Doctrine" and how it will limit Freedom of Speech. The constant attacks on our Constitutional right to "keep and bear arms." The recent move that Rahm Emanual of the Obama administration just did by moving the Census Bureau into (and under control of) the White House. If your not sure what that means, research it to see how various elections can now be influenced and controlled.

I'm not even going to go into the MASSIVE "porkulus" Stimulus Package that was recently signed into law and approved by a Congress that, by their own admissions, didn't even read it thoroughly, or at all. BTW, this was a package that most polls I have seen and read about have shown that a majority of Americans were against it, but, since polls can be influenced and controlled to certain degrees, I'll have to take that info with a grain of salt. So, if the polls are correct, another question is..."Where was our representation in the government regarding this disastrous bill?"

Now Sir, I guess that I am but yet another Glenn Beck who rightfully makes us aware of what is going on, raises alarms and concerns, but can offer no concrete solutions. I'd love to be able to offer out some suggestions and solutions, but I'm just a simple man who knows when there is a skunk in the wood-pile and that something has to be done. I, and I'm sure many of you as well, don't want to hear that old worn out cliche', "Contact/write your Congress-person or representative with your concern"). Frankly, I see almost all of our politicians as people who are only out to fatten their wallets, increase their holdings and attain more Power/Influence (the ultimate corrupter). It appears that they could literally give a shit about the folks who elected them. Does anyone else think the system may be broken and corrupted?

Blog, after blog, after blog posts stories on a daily basis about what is happening in our country, mostly by folks like myself who have a relatively good working knowledge of history, can see what is happening and want to take an active part in addressing these problems. People like myself that are more concerned about the United States of America and NOT who won "Idol" last night, or whether or not Brittany had on panties yesterday. What we don't have is a leader, or a central organization that can bring all of us together (especially bloggers) in one unified front and say STOP, ENUFF OF THIS INSANITY!! But...then again, who knows, maybe I'm the one who is insane and alone in my thoughts. Does anyone else feel as Powerless as I do?

I leave you with this one last question, a symbolic question that goes more to the heart of our ethics, values and traditions that helped guide us in our daily lives and we once prospered under in this nation for so long.....



BTW, a friend of mine, David Brown from Oswego, NY sent me this video sometime after I posted the above concerns. This is Allen Keys, and I ask you to listen closely to what he says. A small part of this video deals with Obama's legal right to be President, and truthfully, I don't think anyone (except Obama) knows whether or not that is true, so you can disregard it if you wish, BUT all the other things the man says are simple everyday basic mathematics and common sense, so I guess that at least one other person is seeing the insanity I'm seeing.

Sunday Sundries, and "Wives"...

Children In Church

A little boy was in a relative's wedding. As he was coming down the aisle, he would take two steps, stop, and turn to the crowd. While facing the crowd, he would put his hands up like claws and roar. So it went, step, step, ROAR, step, step, ROAR, all the way down the aisle.

As you can imagine, the crowd was near tears from laughing so hard by the time he reached the pulpit. When asked what he was doing, the child sniffed and said, 'I was being the Ring Bear.'

One Sunday in a Midwest City , a young child was 'acting up' during the morning worship hour. The parents did their best to maintain some sense of order in the pew but were losing the battle. Finally, the father picked the little fellow up and walked sternly up the aisle on his way out. Just before reaching the safety of the foyer, the little one called loudly to the congregation, 'Pray for me! Pray for me!'

One particular four-year old prayed, 'And forgive us our trash baskets as we forgive those who put trash in our baskets.'

A little boy was overheard praying: 'Lord, if you can't make me a better boy, don't worry about it. I'm having a real good time like I am.'

A Sunday school teacher asked her little children, as they were on the way to church service, 'And why is it necessary to be quiet in church?' One bright little girl replied, 'Because people are sleeping.'
--------------- -----------------------

A little boy opened the big and old family Bible with fascination, looking at the old pages as he turned them. Then something fell out of the Bible. He picked it up and looked at it closely. It was an old leaf from a tree that has been pressed in between the pages. 'Mama, look what I found,' the boy called out. 'What have you got there, dear?' his mother asked. With astonishment in the young boy's voice he answered, 'It's Adam's suit'.

The preacher was wired for sound with a lapel mike, and as he preached, he moved briskly about the platform, jerking the mike cord as he went. Then he moved to one side, getting wound up in the cord and nearly tripping before jerking it again. After several circles and jerks, a little girl in the third pew leaned toward her mother and whispered, 'If he gets loose, will he hurt us?'

Six-year old Angie, and her four-year old brother, Joel, were sitting together in church. Joel giggled, sang and talked out loud. Finally, his big sister had had enough. 'You're not supposed to talk out loud in church.' 'Why? Who's going to stop me?' Joel asked. Angie pointed to the back of the church and said, 'See those two men standing by the door? They're hushers.'

My grandson was visiting one day when he asked, 'Grandma, do you know how you and God are alike?' I mentally polished my halo, while I asked,'No, how are we alike? ''You're both old,' he replied..

A ten-year old, under the tutelage of her grandmother, was becoming quite knowledgeable about the Bible. Then, one day, she floored her grandmother by asking, 'Which Virgin was the mother of Jesus? The Virgin Mary or the King James Virgin.

A Sunday school class was studying the Ten Commandments. They were ready to discuss the last one .. The teacher asked if anyone could tell her what it was. Susie raised her hand, stood tall, and quoted, 'Thou shall not take the covers off the neighbors wife.


A man boarded an airplane in New Orleans with a box of frozen crabs and asked a blonde, female crew member to take care of the box for him. She took the box and promised to put it in the crew's refrigerator. He pointedly advised her that he was holding her personally responsible for the crabs staying frozen, mentioned that he was a lawyer, and proceeded to rant at her about what would happen if she let them thaw out.

Needless to say, she was annoyed by his behavior... Shortly before landing in New York, she used the intercom to announce to the entire cabin, "Would the gentleman who gave me the crabs in New Orleans , please raise your hand?"

Not one hand went up ... so she took them home and ate them.

Two lessons here:
1. Men never learn.
2. Blondes aren't as dumb as most men think.

Now Sir...there be some real and valid truths here.....


When a man steals your wife, there is no better revenge than to let him keep her.

David Bissonette

After marriage, husband and wife become two sides of a coin; they just can't face each other, but still they stay together.

The great question... which I have not been able to answer... is, 'What does a woman want?


I had some words with my wife, and she had some paragraphs with me.

Sigmund Freud

'Some people ask the secret of our long marriage. We take time to go to a restaurant two times a week. A little candlelight, dinner, soft music and dancing. She goes Tuesdays, I go Fridays.'


'There's a way of transferring funds that is even faster than electronic banking. It's called marriage.'

Sam Kinison

'I've had bad luck with both my wives. The first one left me, and the second one didn't.'

You know what I did before I married? Anything I wanted to.


My wife and I were happy for twenty years. Then we met.

Henny Youngman

A good wife always forgives her husband when she's wrong.
