Joke of the Day

A young Texan grew up wanting to be a lawman. 
 He grew up big, 6' 2", strong as a longhorn, and fast as a mustang. He could shoot a bottle cap tossed in the air at 40 paces. 
 When he finally came of age, he applied to where he had only dreamed of working: the West Texas Sheriff's Department.
 After a series of tests and interviews, the Chief Deputy finally called him into his office for the young man's last interview. 
 The Chief Deputy said, "You're a big strong kid and you can really shoot. So far your qualifications all look good, but we have, what you might call, an "Attitude Suitability Test", that you must take before you can be accepted. We just don't let anyone carry our badge, son."
 Then, sliding a service pistol and a box of ammo across the desk, the Chief said, "Take this pistol and go out and shoot: 
 six illegal aliens, 
 six lawyers, 
 six meth dealers, 
 six Muslim extremists, 
 six Democrats, 
 and a rabbit."
 "Why the rabbit?" queried the applicant.
 "You pass," said the Chief Deputy. "When can you start?"

Strange Bedfellows

From On the North River

Maybe not so strange.  The Clintons are despicable, to put it mildly.

The Border Solution

Taxicab Depressions (a great blog, by the way) has a wonderful solution to the border problem our great leaders have created.  Read it all here.
I have been reading a lot of thoughtful and interesting posts and articles about the current situation on our southern border and I am sure my readers (yes you- over there in the corner.  Yes I am talking to you) are reading the same.  I chose this post to share mainly because he says exactly everything I believe.  Except he left out the crocs and gators in the Rio Grande.

Come On People. Make Up Your Minds.

When I shop for food, I like to get "paper inside plastic."  It gives me the stability of paper and the handles of plastic.  The six bag combination (yes, my weekly shopping fills three bags) is a lot less than what I would use given only the plastic bag option.  Baggers tend to put two-three items in each plastic bag.  The combination also makes for the perfect bin-liner.   Occasionally, I use the PC re-usable bags.  I don't always  have them with me.
The other week I was told by a cashier that they are discontinuing the paper bag option.  So naturally I wrote to corporate protesting this move, citing all kinds of environmental crap.  They wrote back assuring me that there was no intention of discontinuing the paper.  They lied.  I went to the store a few days ago and was told they had discontinued the paper bags.  I loudly lamented, crying that Corporate had assured me this would not happen (implying that it was the store decision and not the big guys) .  The manager said she would look into it for me.  Yeah. Right.

Happy Independence Day, USA

From Maggies Farm

It is often asserted that the world has made a great deal of progress since 1776, that we have had new thoughts and new experiences which have given us a great advance over the people of that day, and that we may therefore very well discard their conclusions for something more modern. But that reasoning cannot be applied to this great charter. If all men are created equal, that is final. If they are endowed with inalienable rights, that is final. If governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, that is final. No advance, no progress can be made beyond these propositions. If anyone wishes to deny their truth or their soundness, the only direction in which he can proceed historically is not forward, but backward toward the time when there was no equality, no rights of the individual, no rule of the people. Those who wish to proceed in that direction can not lay claim to progress. They are reactionary. Their ideas are not more modern, but more ancient, than those of the Revolutionary fathers.
