He Sees Things Differently..

He sees things differently than most of us! If you’re not familiar with the work of Steven Wright, he’s the famous erudite comic scientist who once said: “I woke up one morning, and all of my stuff had been stolen and replaced by exact duplicates.”

Here are some of his gems:

  • – i’d kill for a nobel peace prize.
  • – borrow money from pessimists — they don’t expect it back.
  • – half the people you know are below average.
  • – 99% of lawyers give the rest a bad name.
  • – a conscience is what hurts when all your other parts feel so good.
  • – a clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.
  • – if you want the rainbow, you have got to put up with the rain.
  • – all those who believe in psycho kinesis, raise my hand.
  • – the early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.
  • – i almost had a psychic girlfriend, …… but she left me before we met.
  • – ok, so what’s the speed of dark?
  • – how do you tell when you’re out of invisible ink?
  • – if everything seems to be going well, you have
    obviously overlooked something.
  • – depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.
  • – when everything is coming your way, you’re in the wrong lane.
  • – ambition is a poor excuse for not having enough sense to be lazy.
  • – hard work pays off in the future; laziness pays off now.
  • – i intend to live forever… so far, so good.
  • – eagles may soar, but weasels don’t get sucked into jet engines.
  • – what happens if you get scared half to death twice?
  • – my mechanic told me, “i couldn’t repair your brakes, so i made your horn louder.”
  • – why do psychics have to ask you for your name.
  • – if at first you don’t succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.
  • – a conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking.
  • – experience is something you don’t get until just after you need it.
  • – the hardness of the butter is proportional to the softness of the bread.
  • – to steal ideas from one person is plagiarism; to steal from many is research.
  • – the problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.
  • – the sooner you fall behind, the more time you’ll have to catch up.
  • – the colder the x-ray table, the more of your body is required to be on it.
  • – everyone has a photographic memory; some just don’t have film.
  • – if at first you don’t succeed, skydiving is not for you.

The Oscars and The Silent Majority

Oscar

The 89th showing of the Academy Awards is coming up on February 26th. It is important that we, the deplorables, show the likes of Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, Alec Baldwin, Cher, Ashley Judd, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, and the other arrogant hypocrites, that we, the backbone and decent people of America, are more united than the bitter, unhappy, angry, divisive people of the entertainment industry.

Oscar
These arrogant, pompous, pampered soulless individuals declare that half of Americans are racist, sexist, and bigoted for voicing our political choice through Donald Trump. Yet there can be no doubt that the entertainment industry does more to exploit, degrade, minimize, and stereotype women than Donald Trump or any other industry ever has.

From Madonna and Miley Cyrus parading on stage with little to no clothing while grabbing their crotches and allowing fans to do the same, to movies that depict women as whores, sluts, and gold-diggers dependent on their bodies for survival, to the deplorable speeches of Madonna and Ashley Judd talking about their periods in a vile manner and talking about blowing up the White House, we must send these evil-hearted people a strong and distinct message that they do not speak for the women of this country and they are not the role models of our young daughters.

The wearing of pink does not negate the black hearts that these people have for our country and our Constitution. Nor does it negate the disdain and contempt they have for the American people and our political process.

In recent social media threads, the good people of this nation are calling for a full boycott of the entertainment industry for this unwarranted and outrageous display of petulant behavior. Some in the entertainment industry are mocking us saying, “Go ahead, we don’t need you trailer trash racists.”

That may be true, but these people do need our green dollars. It is important that we send a strong and powerful message to this group telling them to stick to their make believe jobs and to leave the politics of this country to the people, just as our wise and forward thinking forefathers designed.

The good people of this country are not asking you to give up movies. We are asking you to take two simple steps.

  • First, protest these groups by refusing to watch the Academy Awards on February 26. Simply change the channel or go for a walk with your family members and tell them how much you love them.
  • Second, forward this request to as many friends as possible and post it on social media to get the word out.
    This will only be effective if we show the same unity we exhibited during the election. Yet how powerful will it be when the ratings for the Academy Awards fall in the toilet. It is only for a couple of hours and requires very little effort. When this happens, the arrogant entertainment industry will understand just how insignificant and powerless they are. Boycott the Academy Awards, a “peaceful” protest from the silent majority!

I am so proud of my fellow Americans who stood up and said, “Enough is Enough.” Michelle may have only been proud of this country once in her life, but we the patriots have never lost our love and pride in America. The left is now up to their old tricks trying to bully the rest of us into feeling guilty.

Let them know that their selfish, vulgar, and unpatriotic behavior over this past few weeks will not be tolerated. Let them know that we will not be silenced and that we are no longer going to be shamed for what we believe. We must continue the fight. We must shut them down now. We must show them that America will be great again no matter how filthy and disgusting they become.

Boycott the Academy Awards on February 26, 2017

The Holiday Postal Crew

There was a man who worked for the Post Office whose job
was to process all the mail that had illegible addresses.

One day, a letter came addressed in a shaky handwriting to
God with no actual address. He thought he should open it to see what it was
about.

old postman with old postal carThe letter read:

Dear God,

I am an 83 year old widow, living on a very small pension.
Yesterday someone stole my purse. It had $100 in it, which
was all the money I had until my next pension payment.
Next Sunday is Christmas, and I had invited two of my
friends over for dinner.

Without that money, I have nothing to buy food with, have no
family to turn to, and you are my only hope…
Can you please help me?

Sincerely, Edna

The postal worker was touched. He showed the letter to all
the other workers. Each one dug into his or her wallet and
came up with a few dollars. By the time he made the rounds,
he had collected $96, which they put into an envelope and
sent to the woman.

The rest of the day, all the workers felt a warm glow
thinking of Edna and the dinner she would be able to share with her friends.

Christmas came and went. A few days later, another letter came from the
same old lady to God.

All the workers gathered around while the letter was opened. It read:

Dear God,

How can I ever thank you enough for what you did for me?

Because of your gift of love, I was able to fix a glorious
dinner for my friends. We had a very nice day and I told my
friends of your wonderful gift.

By the way, there was $4 missing.

I think it might have been those bastards at the post office.

Sincerely,

Edna

Not 75 Yet!

Old man with a pipe

I used to think I was just a regular guy, but . . .
I was born white, which now, whether I like it or not, makes me a racist.

I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which by today’s standards, makes me a fascist.

I am heterosexual, which according to gay folks, now makes me a homophobic.

I am non-union, which makes me a traitor to the working class and an ally of big business.

I am a Christian, which now labels me as an infidel.

I believe in the 2nd Amendment, which now makes me a member of the vast gun lobby.

I am older than 80, which makes me a useless old man.

I think and I reason, therefore I doubt much that the main stream media tells me, which must make me a reactionary.

I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive American culture, which makes me a xenophobe.

I value my safety and that of my family and I appreciate the police and the legal system, which makes me a right-wing extremist.

I believe in hard work, fair play, and fair compensation according to each individual’s merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist.

I believe in the defense and protection of the homeland for and by all citizens, which now makes me a militant.

Now, a sick old woman is calling me and my friends a basket of deplorables.

Please help me come to terms with the new me . . . because I’m just not sure who I am anymore!

I would like to thank all my friends for sticking with me through these abrupt, new found changes in my life and my thinking!

I just can’t imagine or understand what’s happened to me so quickly!
Funny . . . it’s all just taken place over the last 7 or 8 years! As if all this crap wasn’t enough to deal with, I’m now afraid to go into either restroom!

Navy Ends Ratings Titles

The Navy has phased out all of it 91 enlisted ratings titles. As Navy Times reports, the system has existed since the days of the Continental Navy and the changes will “reverberate through the fleet and the veterans community.”

“We’re going to immediately do away with rating titles and address each other by just our rank, as the other services do,” according to Chief of Naval Personnel Vice Adm. Robert Burke. “We recognize that’s going to be a large cultural change, it’s not going to happen overnight, but the direction is to start exercising that now”

Navy Times provides an example: “Sailors will no longer be identified by their job title, say, Fire Controlman 1st Class Joe Sailor, effective immediately. Instead that would be Petty Officer 1st Class Joe Sailor.”

Since its inception, the Navy has had some 700 titles, including 400 created during World War II.

The Navy’s change in titles follows within the Marine Corps, which is removing “man” from 19 occupational titles.

Apparently the terms “Swabby” and “Jarhead” are still revered by the rank and file.

Business Trumps Academics

Intellectuals can persuade the public that government programs are good for us all, which sound ok and feel good, but are not practical in terms of implementation. They hide in academia, and are seldom touched by the real world. Here are the facts:

1. California, New Mexico, Mississippi, Alabama, Illinois, Kentucky, Ohio, New York, Maine, South Carolina. These 11 States now have More People on Welfare than they do Employed!!!

2. Last month, the Senate Budget Committee reports that in fiscal year 2012, between food stamps, housing support, child care, Medicaid and other benefits, the average U.S. Household below the poverty line received $168.00 a day in government support.

What’s the problem with that much support?

Well, the median household income in America is just over $50,000, which averages out to $137.13 a day.
To put it another way, being on welfare now pays the equivalent of $30.00 an hour for 40 hour week, while the average job pays $24.00 an hour.

3. A recent “Investor’s Business Daily” article provided statistics from a survey by the United Nations International Health Organization:

Percentage (%) of men and women who survived a cancer five years after diagnosis:

Country Percent
U.S. 65%
England 46%
Canada 42%


% of patients diagnosed with diabetes -received treatment within 6 months:

Country Percent
U.S. 93%
England 15%
Canada 43%

% of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within six months:

Country Percent
U.S. 90%
England 15%
Canada 43%

% referred to a medical specialist who see one within one month:

Country Percent
U.S. 77%
England 40%
Canada 43%

Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million people:

Country Percent
U.S. 71%
England 14%
Canada 18%

% of seniors (65+), with low income, who are in “excellent health”:

Country Percent
U.S. 12%
England 2%
Canada 6%

And now…for almost the last statistic: National Health Insurance?

Country Yes/No
U.S. No
England Yes
Canada Yes

4. Check the last set of statistics!!

The percentage of each past president’s cabinet… who had worked in the private business sector…prior to their appointment to the cabinet.
You know what the private business sector is: a real-life business…not a government job.


Percent President
38% Teddy Roosevelt
40% Taft
52% Wilson
49% Harding
48% Coolidge
42% Hoover
50% F. D. Roosevelt
50% Truman
57% Eisenhower
30% Kennedy
47% Johnson
53% Nixon
42% Ford
32% Carter
56%% Reagan
51% G. H. Bush
39% Clinton
55% G. W. Bush
8% OBama

This helps explain the bias, if not the incompetence, of this current administration: ONLY 8% of them…have ever worked in private business!
That’s right! Only eight percent—the least, by far, of the last 19 presidents!

And these people are trying to tell our corporations how to run their business?

How can the president of a major nation and society, the one with the most successful economic system in world history, stand and talk about business when he’s never worked for one?

Or about jobs when he has never really had one?

And, when it’s the same for 92% of his senior staff and closest advisers?

They’ve spent most of their time in academia, government, and/or non-profit jobs or as “community organizers.”

And now you know, “…the rest of the story!”
