An old couple were sitting on the porch one afternoon rocking in their rocking chairs. All the sudden the old man reaches over and slaps his wife.
She says, “Well what was that for?”
She doesn’t reply and they start rocking again.
All the sudden the old lady reaches up and slaps her husband.
He says, “Well what was that for?”
She says, “That’s for knowing the difference!”
A sister and brother are talking to each other when the little boy gets up and walks over to his Grandpa and says, “Grandpa, please make a frog noise.”
The Grandpa says, “No.”
The little boy goes on, “Please .. please make a frog noise.”
The Grandpa says, “No, now go play.”
The little boy then says to his sister, “Go tell Grandpa to make a frog noise.”
The Grandpa says, “I just told your brother ‘no’ and I’m telling you ‘no’.” The little girl says, “Please .. please Grandpa make a frog noise.” The Grandpa says, “Why do you want me to make a frog noise?”
The little girl replied, “Because mommy said when you croak we can go to Disney World!”
This may cause blood to shoot out of your eyes. As Glenn Beck says; this is a true “Duct Tape” moment.
These people have to go!!
The EPA has brought surface mining to a halt in Appalachia, allegedly to protect the Mayfly. In surface mining, the miners put the rock and dirt in the surrounding areas or valleys. When water flows through these areas, it can become saltier. The salt may be harmful to Mayflies. It is not harmful to humans.
What’s a Mayfly? It’s a tiny insect that lives in a larvae stage in water for as long as three years. As an adult, it has no usable mouth and usually lives no longer than three hours. The females reproduce during that brief time and then die. In short, these are essentially worthless insects.
To the EPA and the environmentalists, however, the existence of the Mayfly is excuse enough to shut down coal mining in one area of our nation. Lisa Jackson and Obama are willing to sacrifice an abundant source of energy to protect a bug that lives only three hours to lay more eggs.
Ah, but there’s more.
In Nebraska, environmentalists are busy protecting the American burying beetle from the evils of the Keystone XL pipeline. The burying beetle (Nicorphorus americanus) in Nebraska makes its home in the Sand Hills – a route contemplated by the TransCanada corporation for the pipeline.
Because of the beetle, the TransCanada corp. is overhauling its plans so it can avoid the beetle habitat. The company had originally agreed to pledge $2 million to encourage ranching practices that protected the beetles or to purchase land that would be managed for the beetles.
Wyatt Hoback, a University of Nebraska biology professor was actually hired by TransCanada to work with his students to trap and move 2,400 beetles from the original pipeline path, which cut across 100 miles of the Sand Hills.
Imagine this: Three environmental groups actually filed a federal lawsuit challenging the relocation program for these endangered beetles! Apparently, it’s not even permissible to move a bug from where they live to a safe location where they won’t be crushed by bulldozers.
The burying beetle’s Sand Hills home is safe from the evil pipeline.
Once TransCanada locates another route through Nebraska, rest assured that some bug-loving lunatic will find yet another bug, mouse, tic, plant or endangered rock formation to protect from the wicked energy producers.
And, you can expect that the EPA will jump on whatever excuse it can find to stop energy production in the U.S. It is clear that Lisa Jackson and her radical allies love bugs more than humans.
While shopping in a food store, two nuns happened to pass by the beer, wine, and liquor section. One asked the other if she would like a beer.
The first nun replied that she would handle it without a problem.
She picked up a six-pack and took it to the cashier. The cashier was surprised, so the nun said,”This is for washing our hair”.
Without blinking an eye, the cashier reached under the counter and put a package of pretzel sticks in the bag with the beer.
“The curlers are on me.”
From The Blaze:
While many elements of society seem to surely be shifting ever-further to the left of the political spectrum, a recent Gallup poll released Thursday reveals otherwise. According to the survey, conservatives continue to make up the largest political segment in the country, outnumbering liberals nearly two-to-one.
The Gallup poll shows that 40 percent of Americans consider themselves conservative; 35 percent moderate; and 21 percent view themselves as liberal. The figures are no different than they were in 2010 and conservatives have outnumbered both moderates and liberals for three years running now.
In fact, both self-identified conservatives and liberals have risen in number since the early 1990s, indicating a growing polarization in American politics.
While self-identified conservatives dominate the Republican Party, making up 71 percent, the Democratic Party is more split – 39 percent of Democrats view themselves as liberal, and 38 percent consider themselves moderates.
It might be worth noting that, per the poll’s findings, independents are mainly moderate (41 percent), but veer more towards conservatism (35 percent) than liberalism (20 percent).
The Gallup poll was conducted with 20,392 respondents and allows for a margin of error of plus or minus one.
Editorial Comment: Sorry to be a downer, but I personally am not buying any of this. If this poll is even close to accurate, how is it we keep electing and reelecting, squishy, middle of the road moderates. How is our frontrunning presidential candidate, “Thoroughly Moderate Mitt”.
Maybe it’s conservatives fear of losing that overshadows their better judgement? I don’t know what it is. All I know is that I am conservative & I am disappointed every election cycle.
Friday marks the last time HHS (Health & Human Services) will have to update the total number of waivers, putting to rest a recurring political firestorm.
The department had been updating its waiver totals every month, prompting monthly attacks from the GOP, posted by Sam Baker of The Hill.
All told, 1,231 companies applied for and received waivers from the law’s restrictions on annual benefit caps.
The law requires plans to gradually raise their benefit limits, and all annual limits will become illegal in 2014. Companies that received waivers can keep their caps intact until 2014.
Republicans say the need for waivers proves that the healthcare law is unworkable. HHS argues that the waivers show the law provides flexibility.
Flexible: susceptible of modification or adaptation; adaptable
Waiver: an intentional relinquishment of some right, interest, or the like.
So flexibility means to modify & waiver means to drop all together. Hmmm.
Let’s see just how “flexible” our government has been.
The Daily Caller reports the documents released in a classic Friday afternoon news dump show that labor unions representing 543,812 workers received waivers from President Barack Obama‘s signature legislation since June 17, 2011.
That’s pretty flexible. So flexible it seems, they bent over backwards, for some. Must be double jointed.
As you read this article, just keep chanting this mantra: “Iran is a small, insignificant & isolated country. They pose no threat to us.”
From The Jerusalem Post:
HAVANA – Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Thursday both Cuba-Iranian relations and Fidel Castro were in good shape after he met with the former Cuban leader and his younger brother President Raul Castro during a one-day visit to the communist island.
He said the two countries, similarly at odds with the United States though half a world apart, were closely aligned on many issues and would continue to fight “to demand the rights of the peoples.”
“Our positions, versions, interpretations are alike, very close. We have been good friends, we are and will be, and we will be together forever. Long live Cuba,” Ahmadinejad said through an interpreter at the Havana airport as he departed for Ecuador, the final stop in his Latin American tour.
Such shows of solidarity were the main purpose of Ahmadinejad’s trip to four leftist-led countries as Iran seeks support amid rising international opposition to its nuclear activities. He visited Venezuela and Nicaragua before coming to Cuba on Wednesday.
The leader of the Islamic Republic said he discussed many different issues in a meeting with Fidel Castro, 85 and mostly retired, and that he was happy “to see commandant Fidel safe and sound.” A recent flurry of rumors on social media claimed that Castro had died.
“We see that he follows all the national and international affairs in detail and with much pleasure,” he said.
Cuban President Raul Castro told reporters his brother had met with Ahmadinejad for two hours and did most of the talking. The meeting was held on Wednesday.
“It shows that he is very well, really very well,” said the younger Castro, who succeeded his brother as president four years ago and is himself 80.
About his own talks with Ahmadinejad, Castro said, “It was a good visit, we discussed quite a lot, we analyzed quite a lot, we finished very late.”
They also reaffirmed their opposition to the “application of unilateral economic sanctions.”
Ahmadinejad’s visit came as tensions escalated following the recent imposition of new US sanctions aimed at inflicting economic damage in hopes of forcing Iran to stop its nuclear program.
Iran has said it is developing nuclear capabilities only for peaceful purposes, but the United States and its allies accuse it of wanting to create a nuclear weapon.
On Wednesday tensions rose further when an Iranian nuclear scientist was killed by a car bomb in Tehran that the Iranian government blamed on Israel and the United States.Israel declined to comment, while the United States denied any involvement.
Ahmadinejad let government officials back in Tehran do the talking about the incident while he stuck to a relatively non-controversial script in Havana.
In a speech at the University of Havana, he said Iran had done nothing to make enemies, denounced capitalism and called for a new world order based on justice and respect for all.
I hope everyone is already aware of this outrage. If not, here is a quick recap.
New Hampshire has no voter I.D. law, which means that theoretically, anyone can enter a polling place, claim they are someone else and legally vote. The more remarkable thing about the law isn’t that the poll workers don’t have to ask for I.D., it is that the law states the poll workers are required to NOT ask for I.D.
Well, it has to come light nationally, via a video that has gone viral, that this is exactly was has occurred, with remarkable ease, I might add.
The people that made the video evidently checked the obituaries, walked into the polling place, claimed to be the dead person and were handed a legal ballot.
The first video is more of a fun showing, but certainly drives the point home. The second video is the actual raw footage. It’s a little long but worth the watch.
As you watch these, keep in mind, New Hampshire is a tiny state with a small electorate. Imagine what will happen & undoubtedly has happened in large states like New York, Pennsylvania or California.
A few of the clips in the next video were at the polling place where I voted. Ugh!!
Two Irishmen, Patrick & Michael, were adrift in a lifeboat following a dramatic escape from a burning freighter.
While rummaging through the boat’s provisions, Patrick stumbled across an old lamp. Secretly hoping that a genie would appear, he rubbed the lamp vigorously. To the amazement of Patrick, a genie came forth.
This particular genie, however, stated that he could only deliver one wish, not the standard three.
Without giving much thought to the matter, Patrick blurted out, “Make the entire ocean into Guinness!”
The genie clapped his hands with a deafening crash, and immediately the entire sea turned into the finest brew ever sampled by mortals. Simultaneously, the genie vanished.
Only the gentle lapping of Guinness on the hull broke the stillness as the two men considered their circumstances.
Michael looked disgustedly at Patrick whose wish had been granted. After a long, tension-filled moment, he spoke:
“Nice going Patrick! Now we’re going to have to pee in the boat.”
