from the "oh good grief" file

i was going to ignore this article in our local rag, but since it is now on the fox news site, i will not ignore it.

racist rantings

one of the commenters on the site said this
I'm outraged as a member of the National Association for the Advancement of Cultivating People (aka Farmers)these insensitive decorations look like farmers hanging from trees... With their flannel shirts and blue work jeans... All their missing is a John Deer hat. I'm pissed. Where's my interview?.


but then the mayor backs down
he will hear from me on that!

siding with the taliban, hatemongering and all that

i received this email and thought i would share it
"Something has happened here that we all agree with the Taliban and Iran about, and that is: he doesn't deserve the award...we all are on the same side as the Taliban."
-Rush Limbaugh

Dear (missred)

As destructive as the Republicans have been to this nation over the past eight years, they're finding new ways to drag America back into the grips of the failed Bush-Cheney-Rove policies.
They've proven they'll stop at nothing in their blind quest to destroy President Obama and regain national power--even if it means siding with the Taliban in criticizing our Commander-in-Chief.
When President Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize, it sent a powerful message to the world: America is returning to her rightful role as a symbol of hope, justice, and promise on the international stage.
That should have been a proud moment for all of us. But the Republicans have yet again taken something great and used it for callous political maneuvers. And it's not just their right-wing, Limbaugh-loving fringe...the chairman of the national Republican party, Michael Steele, even issued an attack on the President within hours of the Nobel prize announcement.
It's time to tell the Party of No that their anti-American political posturing must end. Click here to voice your outrage at the GOP and support President Obama by signing the Democratic Governors Association's petition.
Remember, this isn't the first time Republicans have shown their true colors, not by a long shot. Republicans didn't waste a minute cheering for America's failure at the Olympics...just because President Obama was working for our success.
Then think about healthcare reform. To finally be working toward a solution to this national crisis should be the dream of every legislator -- but not for Republicans. They see it purely as Obama's "Waterloo."
Let's not forget President Obama's speech to kids about staying in school and working hard to accomplish their dreams. Only the most vicious partisans could find something wrong in that message -- but that was all we heard from the GOP for days.
And before that, when the President launched the stimulus package that ended our freefall into a second Great Depression and stabilized the country -- Republicans tried to smother it before it got off the ground.
In every case, what started as an unprecedented opportunity to unite as Americans was turned into negative, anti-American posturing and obstructionism by the GOP...all because they've placed their party above their country. It's shameful. But it's the Republican way.
Click here to tell the Party of No that we've had enough of their anti-American rhetoric and anti-American obstructionism. Sign the DGA's petition today and show your support for President Obama.
Every voice we add to the DGA's petition will make our message even more powerful. So please sign it now and forward it on to every friend and family member you can.
Together, our voices will rise above the din of Republican hate-mongering and show that America wants and deserves progress, not partisan political games.

Thank you for joining this critical cause.

Sincerely,

Colleen Turrentine

Democratic Governors Association

P.S. This is your chance to tell the Republicans that their anti-American cheerleading is a disgrace to themselves and our country. Click here to sign the DGA's petition and stand with President Obama now, then keep building the power of this message by inviting your friends and family to add their names as well.

decisions, decisions, decisions

i have been working with an outsource agency, and had an interview with a job agency today. and i discovered alot about me.. one of which, i am not afraid to make a decision
evidently in this business climate it seems to extraordinary for individuals in power to make decisions. i have seen this in my former employer many times. no one wants to take responsibility for making a decision.
how absurd.
when did we lose our sense of competence. or our sense of what we believe in. or whatever else it is that prevents one from making a decision.
personally, i have no problem with making decisions. i had to make a lot as a single mum of a deaf child. yes, i probably made the wrong decision at times, but i don't regret them. i had to make those decisions based on the best of my knowledge at the time. as anyone who has to make decisions. i stand by them and gained respect from the school and my friends.
and i continued to make such decisions in my professional life. if i had not transferred divisions to work with one of the best vice presidents in the company, i probably would still have my job. he had to make a decision and unfortumately it cost me my job. he explained his decision and i respect him for it.. and understand.
because of a decision, i now have to move on to a new job. a new chapter in my life.
and i embrace it.
and i hope my next boss will be able to make decisions.
enough of fiddle faddle.

and the second of one of my all time favourite jokes

A Scotsman stranded on a desert island comes across a woman who has washed up onto shore. The Scotsman helps the woman and welcomes her to the island.

Later on that day, the woman says, "I don't suppose you smoked before you were stranded on this island, did you?"


The Scotsman explains that he most certainly did smoke before becoming stranded on the island. So, the woman produces a cigarette from her bag, and they enjoy a smoke together.


A little later, the woman says, "I don't suppose you drank before you were stranded on this island, did you?"


The Scotsman explains that he most certainly did drink before becoming stranded on the island. So, the woman produces a flask from her bag, and they enjoy a drink together.


Some time later, the woman says, "So, you've been on this island for ten years without a woman, huh?"


"That's right," says the Scotsman.


The woman continue, "I don't suppose you'd like to play around?"

"Good God lady," exclaimed the Scotsman, "you have a set of golf clubs in that bag too?!?!'

one of my all time favourite jokes

Saddam Hussein was sitting in his office wondering who to invade next when his telephone rang. "Hallo! Mr. Hussein," a heavily accented voice said. "This is Paddy down in County Cavan, Ireland. I am ringing to inform you that we are officially declaring war on you!"
"Well, Paddy," Saddam replied, "This is indeed important news! Tell me, how big is your army?"
"At this moment in time," said Paddy after a moment's calculation, "there is myself, my cousin Sean, my next door neighbour Gerry, and the entire dominoes team from the pub-that makes 8!"
Saddam sighed. "I must tell you Paddy that I have 1 million men in my army waiting to move on my command."
"Begorra!", said Paddy, "I'll have to ring you back!"


Sure enough, the next day Paddy rang back. "Right Mr.Hussein, the war is still on! We have managed to acquire some equipment!" "And what equipment would that be, Paddy?" Saddam asked. "Well, we have 2 combine harvesters, a bulldozer and Murphy's tractor from the farm."
Once more Saddam sighed. "I must tell you, Paddy, that I have 16 thousand tanks, 14 thousand armored personnel carriers, and my army has increased to1 and a half million since we last spoke."
"Really?!" said Paddy "I'll have to ring you back!"


Paddy rang again the next day. "Right Mr. Hussein, the war is still on! We have managed to get ourselves airborne! We've modified Ted's ultralight with a couple of rifles in the cockpit and the bridge team has joined us as well!"
Saddam was silent for a minute, then sighed. "I must tell you Paddy that I have 10 thousand bombers, 20 thousand MiG 19 attack planes, my military complex is surrounded by laser-guidedsurface-to-air missile sites, and since we last spoke, my army has increased to 2 million."
"Faith and begorra!", said Paddy, "I'll have to ring you back." Sure enough, Paddy called again the next day. "Right Mr.Hussein, I am sorry to tell you that we have had to call off the war."
"I'm sorry to hear that" said Saddam. "Why the sudden change of heart?"
"Well," said Paddy "We've all had a chat, and there's no way we can feed 2 million prisoners."

other famous susans

those that actually accomplished something

1978 Congress coddles NO NADS with Susan B. Anthony Dollar

from a real sucess from our government, courtesy of my friends at PIGazette

Susan B. Anthony was the first woman to be honored by having her likeness appear on a circulating United States coin. In 1978, President Jimmy Carter signed the Susan B. Anthony Dollar Coin Act into law (Public Law 95-447). This law amended the Coinage Act of 1965, changing the size, weight, and design of the one-dollar coin. On July 2, 1979, the U. S. Mint officially released the Susan B. Anthony coin in Rochester, NY, the home of Susan B. Anthony during the most politically active years of her life. In 1979, 757,813,744 coins were produced. Additional coins were dated 1980, 1981 (numanistic items only), and 1999. Ultimately, the United States Mint produced 888,842,452 Susan B. Anthony coins for circulation.

In 1997, Congress passed the United States $1 Coin Act (Public Law 104-124, Sec. 4), replacing the Susan B. Anthony dollar with the golden dollar coin. The golden color of this new coin, combined with a smoother edge and wider border, helps to more easily differentiate it from a quarter. The act also authorized the Secretary of Treasury to continue to mint Susan B. Anthony coins until such time as the production of new golden coins was ready. In 1999, the final 41,368,000 Susan B. Anthony coins were minted. The coins continue in circulation today.

i wasnt going to say much about the polanski brouhaha
i was living in LA the time and there was a lot of goings on in jacks house
while the press said nowt all of the business knew
jack had young girls.. and so did roman
i remember all of the hollywood scene talked about it.

all of hollywood knew this and condoned it because they were all doing it
