Stop putting birdseed in the bird feeder!! Update!
But first this UPDATE! Womenfolk are never satisfied with our efforts!!
In the past I posted a short story about a man, who, at the urging of his wife (who was a Democrat BTW) put up a bird feeder on his patio/deck. Shortly, every type of bird in the area was frequenting the feeder all day long. As this avian patronage of the feeder continued, the area around the feeder became messy with spilt bird seed, and shortly thereafter, tons of "bird-shit". There was bird shit all over the patio/deck, the outside chairs and table and the sliding glass doors. It was not safe to enjoy the area because folks, and their food and drinks were being pooped on while trying relax outside and enjoy the day.
Eventually the neighborhood cats learned of this smorgasbord of fresh birdies and the deck became even more fouled with dead birds and feathers, and occasionally some cat shit.
Flummoxed, the man asked his neighbor what he should do to correct the problem. The neighbor answered "Stop Feeding The Birds Stupid!"
This short 3 minute video gives you an idea of the Health Care costs regarding illegal aliens...and this is just ONE hospital!!
To all our Congressmen/Congresswomen, STOP FEEDING THE DAMNED BIRDS STUPID!!, or we'll stop feeding y'all.
"SoCalPal" said; "It was on the News yesterday that the County of Los Angeles spent 1.6 Billion dollars in 2010 on illegal aliens in their area (and this is after all the 'benefits' provided by the illegals are factored in). This amount does NOT included the cost of education of these people. The County of Los Angeles is officialy bankrupt as is the State of California. When legal citizens demand the removal of illegals to their home country, they are instantly labeled 'racists' and completely ignored. California has been completely overwhelmed by the flood of illegals. This flood of 'invaders' is strongly endorsed by the Democrat Party, the Catholic Church, the News Media, the Public School System and Big Business!"
Friendship among Women: A woman didn't come home one night. The next morning she told her husband that she had slept over at a friend's house. The man called his wife's 10 best friends. None of them knew anything about it.

OK ladies, here's a solution fer ya if'n yur think'n about get'n implants.
A little boy got on the bus, sat next to a man reading a book, and noticed he had his collar on backwards.
The little boy asked why he wore his collar backwards.
The man, who was a priest, said, 'I am a Father..'
The little boy replied, 'My Daddy doesn't wear his collar like that.'
The priest looked up from his book and answered, ''I am the Father of many.'
The boy said, ''My Dad has 4 boys, 4 girls and two grandchildren and he doesn't wear his collar that way!'
The priest, getting impatient, said. 'I am the Father of hundreds', and went back to reading his book.
The little boy sat quietly thinking for a while, then leaned over and said, "Maybe you should wear a condom, and put your pants on backwards instead of your collar." ________________________________

Ever since learning that the purveyors of "Snopes" lean left and tend to slant their articles that way, I stopped using them and now use another site, "TruthorFiction", and below is yet another reason why. I first checked this story on Snopes and they labeled it as "Undetermined" and have been investigating its legitimacy since February 2010 (almost a year). The "TruthorFiction" site has this story as TRUE.
It really breaks my heart to know that we didn't know this goes on every Friday, well at least I didn't know. Instead, I guess the media feels it's more important to report on Hollywood stars as heroes. I hope this article gives you a sense of pride for what our men and women are doing for us, every day, as they serve in the armed forces here and abroad.
THIS HAPPENS EVERY FRIDAY! WERE YOU AWARE?
Friday Mornings at the Pentagon
By JOSEPH L. GALLOWAY McClatchy Newspapers
Over the last 12 months, 1,042 soldiers, Marines, sailors and Air Force personnel have given their lives in the terrible duty that is war. Thousands more have come home on stretchers, horribly wounded and facing months or years in military hospitals.
This week, I'm turning my space over to a good friend and former roommate, Army Lt. Col. Robert Bateman, who recently completed a year long tour of duty in Iraq and is now back at the Pentagon.
Here's Lt. Col. Bateman's account of a little-known ceremony that fills the halls of the Army corridor of the Pentagon with cheers, applause and many tears every Friday morning. It first appeared on May 17 on the Weblog of media critic and pundit Eric Alterman at the Media Matters for America Website.
"It is 110 yards from the "E" ring to the "A" ring of the Pentagon. This section of the Pentagon is newly renovated; the floors shine, the hallway is broad, and the lighting is bright. At this instant the entire length of the corridor is packed with officers, a few sergeants and some civilians, all crammed tightly three and four deep against the walls. There are thousands here.
This hallway, more than any other, is the `Army' hallway. The G3 offices line one side, G2 the other, G8 is around the corner. All Army. Moderate conversations flow in a low buzz. Friends who may not have seen each other for a few weeks, or a few years, spot each other, cross the way and renew.
Everyone shifts to ensure an open path remains down the center. The air conditioning system was not designed for this press of bodies in this area.
The temperature is rising already. Nobody cares. "10:36 hours: The clapping starts at the E-Ring. That is the outermost of the five rings of the Pentagon and it is closest to the entrance to the building. This clapping is low, sustained, hearty. It is applause with a deep emotion behind it as it moves forward in a wave down the length of the hallway.
"A steady rolling wave of sound it is, moving at the pace of the soldier in the wheelchair who marks the forward edge with his presence. He is the first. He is missing the greater part of one leg, and some of his wounds are still suppurating. By his age I expect that he is a private, or perhaps a private first class.
"Captains, majors, lieutenant colonels and colonels meet his gaze and nod as they applaud, soldier to soldier. Three years ago when I described one of these events, those lining the hallways were somewhat different. The applause a little wilder, perhaps in private guilt for not having shared in the burden ... Yet.
"Now almost everyone lining the hallway is, like the man in the wheelchair, also a combat veteran. This steadies the applause, but I think deepens the sentiment. We have all been there now. The soldier's chair is pushed by, I believe, a full colonel.
"Behind him, and stretching the length from Rings E to A, come more of his peers, each private, corporal, or sergeant assisted as need be by a field grade officer.
"11:00 hours: Twenty-four minutes of steady applause. My hands hurt, and I laugh to myself at how stupid that sounds in my own head. My hands hurt. Please! Shut up and clap. For twenty-four minutes, soldier after soldier has come down this hallway - 20, 25, 30.. Fifty-three legs come with them, and perhaps only 52 hands or arms, but down this hall came 30 solid hearts.
They pass down this corridor of officers and applause, and then meet for a private lunch, at which they are the guests of honor, hosted by the generals. Some are wheeled along. Some insist upon getting out of their chairs, to march as best they can with their chin held up, down this hallway, through this most unique audience. Some are catching handshakes and smiling like a politician at a Fourth of July parade. More than a couple of them seem amazed and are smiling shyly.
"There are families with them as well: the 18-year-old war-bride pushing her 19-year-old husband's wheelchair and not quite understanding why her husband is so affected by this, the boy she grew up with, now a man, who had never shed a tear is crying; the older immigrant Latino parents who have, perhaps more than their wounded mid-20s son, an appreciation for the emotion given on their son's behalf. No man in that hallway, walking or clapping, is ashamed by the silent tears on more than a few cheeks. An Airborne Ranger wipes his eyes only to better see. A couple of the officers in this crowd have themselves been a part of this parade in the past.
These are our men, broken in body they may be, but they are our brothers, and we welcome them home. This parade has gone on, every single Friday, all year long, for more than four years.

That you tube bit about the new technology actually made my wife and me laugh so hard we cried. I had to steal it for my blog (with a link and a bit about your blog) along with the one you posted a day or two before that about the origin of the Riverdance. Maybe my two or three readers at The Cumberland Post (blogspot) will stop by and check out your place. I don't know how you find all the stuff in your blog, but it's great. Keep it up!"
Well Sir, a lady who does have some class, M.M.Mancuso, sent these here photygraffs of our First Lady's various fashion choices.

But first, what I think will happen in t'days big game!!
An article from "The Patriot Update".
Hawaii Gov Waffles on Obama’s Birth Certificate January 22, 2011
A privacy law that shields birth certificates has prompted Democratic Gov. Neil Abercrombie to abandon efforts to dispel claims that President Obama was born outside Hawaii, his office says.
State Attorney General David Louie told the governor that privacy laws bar him from disclosing an individual’s birth documentation without the person’s consent, Abercrombie spokeswoman Donalyn Dela Cruz said Friday.
“There is nothing more that Gov. Abercrombie can do within the law to produce a document,” said Dela Cruz. “Unfortunately, there are conspirators who will continue to question the citizenship of our president.”
Abercrombie, who was a friend of Obama’s parents and knew him as a child, launched an investigation last month into whether he can release more information about the president’s Aug. 4, 1961 birth. The governor said at the time he was bothered by people who questioned Obama’s birthplace for political reasons.
Now Sir, the question still remains, WHY WON'T OBAMA GIVE HIS PERMISSION TO RELEASE THE DAMNED BIRTH CERTIFICATE...FOR PUBLIC VIEWING?
Now Sir, Cookie watches O'Reilly on a somewhat regular basis, and for the most part I tend to believe, and/or agree with most things Bill says, but not always. I consider myself to be an objective person and can usually look at both sides of an issue in an honest and scrutinizing manner. To have been a good detective I needed to have this approach to all cases I investigated. Here is a short 50 second video, one of several, where Bill O'Reilly states that he and others have seen a "a copy" of the long form birth certificate, and it is legal.
For many folks, that comment by O'Reilly settled the matter regarding the validity and existence of Obama's long form Birth Certificate once and for all. Many of my friends and acquaintences remarked things like, "OK whats the next issue?", "Hmmm, well, there must be one cause O'Reilly and Fox News says so!", "Case Closed", etc., etc..
Not so fast mates. As much as I respect Bill O'Reilly, he's still capable of being deceived, or lying, just like anyone else in this world. Personally, I would suspect the former. To get caught in a potential lie this large and nationally damaging would be a career ender for ANYONE (even Bill O'Reilly) who is later shown to be implicit and culpable.
As Joseph Goebbels (Hitlers Propaganda Minister) was alleged to have said, "Tell a big enough lie, long enough, and people will believe it".
So, just what in the hell is Obama's game here?! Over the years I have found that "Where there is smoke...there is fire" to be true more often times than not.
One keeps reading and hearing news stories about Obama having "spent several millions of his own money to keep various school and travel records buried." Lets start with that. First, show us some proof of these expenditures. What are the sources of this info?
Once that is established to be factual, the next obvious question is WHY? IF there even is a BC (and like many, I have had my doubts for some time now), then what is on it that is so damaging that it needs to be hidden?
There is one school of thought making the rounds that several investigative reporters for various media (and others not associated with any media) know for a fact that there is NO BC, but are terrified that should this info become public, there would be a violent revolution in this country. Also, there are folks in high positions who have been aware of a fraud since the beginning and should this break wide open, they, along with Obama would be exposed for having been a part of "a massive fraud and cover-up" perpetrated on the American voter. Many folks would go down on that "ship of the damned".
As an old detective Sergeant, I love a good mystery. I truly wish I had the authority behind me to subpoena, question and warrant, but since I do not, then it would be nice to see Inspector Clouseau, AKA Eric Holder do his job.
Again, leave your comments in the comment section and I will review and post them by hand where appropriate. __________________________________________
