The Government can’t be expected to fix anything, if they are unwilling to fix what is wrong with the system that they have created to perpetuate the system that they wanted.

Instead of a choice of the Lesser of Two Evils, why can’t we Vote for
None of the Above.

Who else do you know that can get paid for doing nothing?,

get paid overtime for doing nothing?,

Not keeping any promises that they spread like fertilizer?

Won’t lose their pay unless they commit treason no matter how long they might be in jail for any other infractions?

Why are there Political Parties in the first place? Party On! Parties are not for getting any work done except Partying,

and for keeping out anyone who is not a Party Member from ever having an equal chance

What ever happened to standing on your own two feet, walking proudly, up holding your own merits, and rolling up your sleeves and getting a job done, one step at a time.

If any given member of a Party is not able to stand on its own, then all we really are left with is a chain composed of nothing but Weakest Links.

Cut the chains that bind them together and you have nothing but a lot of dead weights.

Right now we have 2 chains that can not pull together, that can not be trusted to work alone.

To blame one man for the lack inherent in the chains that he can not wield, that he has no power over to command, is beyond asinine.

Until each link is inspected, the rotten apples and diseased cut and separated from destroying those around them, flaws identified and fixed, you can not expect either chain to do a job, let alone a job that requires cooperation, rather than inherent corruption.

When you break it all down, and it should be broken down and inspected microscopically, the system is no longer a functional whole.

Each link is more focused on itself than the job it was elected to do.

More time, money and effort is expended by “our elected” government to become elected, and to become re elected than they spend actually doing a job.

Solution to this portion of the problem is simple.

No Reelection.
They limit the terms of the President don’t they?
Why not limits on those that supposedly do the work.

Something good might get done, so hey, break out the Filibuster! Compliance a problem, just push back the timing of the implementation and Pull its teeth by cutting funding. Send it to Committee!

Committees, Special Committees, Joint Committees, but what Commitment is actually Committed to commencing to get anything done, other than to Craft Bills, amend Riders, water down legislation to the point of evaporation of intentions, compromise by combinations that will scratch my back if I’ll support funding for projects that will make you look good to your constituents, and so on.

Take one thing at a time, address one issue at a time, let it stand on its own merits.

Oh, I forgot we can’t do that, it goes against the abilities of those weak links who are only able to stand under a party umbrella, hidden from the Rain of Reality. Platforms are built and constructed of piecemeal truths and flat out cardboard lies.

Instead of a choice of the Lesser of Two Evils, why can’t we Vote for
None of the Above.
When the Carrot and the Stick are held in the same hand the system is broken.

When there is no incentive to fix something it will not get fixed.

We are governed by those that are not held accountable in any meaningful way.

There is currently no way to make them be accountable.

The only Accountability they Count is in their Bank Accounts.

Off Shore and Swiss Bank Accounts, like the Cheese, leaves too many holes for them to hide their treasures, and there are no Cats but Fat Cats.

Even Mice once Belled the Cats.

So much for the Best Laid Plans.

We are the Mice, no longer Men.

Perhaps we the Greater of Evils, for “We the People” have long ago given up and allowed our Nation to be run not “For the People” nor “By the People”, and are now left only looking through the Peephole, locked out and away from any recourse but to
Weep for the People, we have sold our souls to the Company Store as they “Buy the People”.

Think about it PEOPLE!

Abraham Lincoln, in his Gettysburg Address, dared to recognize a fundamental truth:
“We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom; and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

Think about it HARDER!

Even in his time, he recognized the need to work together.

Figure it out yet?>

Someone shot him, and he perished from this earth.

Lets go back a little farther with historic figures that cut wood, leave behind a rail splitter, and take up the cherry of a man, who couldn’t tell a lie.

By George! I think you know who I am referring to! It was a time when Hemp could be used in a Neck Tie Party, a Neck Stretcher, no Refer puns for the Intendants, just Hanging Participles, that should be left Dangling in the wind till they like Pheasants of the rich, rot through at the neck and fall, ready for the eating.

George chopped closer the Truth of the matter when he refused to become another King in the line of Georges, and instead gave up being President for Life.

He believed in the defense of the Constitution by stating his belief that the system of checks and balances and separation of powers within it are important means of preventing a single person or group from seizing control of the country, and advises the American people that if they believe it is necessary to modify the powers granted to the government through the Constitution it should be done through constitutional amendments instead of through force.

We do not have a single person or group that have seized control of our country, but two groups or parties, and they have effectively taken over and ruled out anyone else from getting a place on the dance card.

Check how you can get put on a ballot as something not an Elephant hiding in the peanut butter, or an Ass to Pin on the Tail. It isn’t easy, and it is costly.
And all those hoops and hooplah were created by the 2 party system.

Break the Parties, or never get into the Ball.

No Fairy Godmothers for us Cinderella’s, just the Mice making the gowns and Pumpkins to be pulled and filled, Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater, have their Cake and Eat it Too,
Its their Government Through and Threw.

What are we mice and shrews to do?

Greetings and Salutations Phoebe Talbot!

You have just won the 3rd place in the Office AutoReply Bounce

As you can see by the trail below, I am not a lucky fellow.

But I can Bellow Its just that I am cowardly Yellow.

And take lots of prescription drugs to stay Mellow.

At some point I will give up trying to get the entry in. Had internet connection problems.

Then it would not accept my log in on the site.

Then I could not get the program to allow me to see a contact email.

Then all the contactee’s are playing keep away from the office.

I got to the Facebook page for Star and posted there also, in a feeble attempt to get this of my chest and out of my hair. And yes, my chest has almost as much hair on it as my head, but that is not saying much as most of the thatch up there is heading south and taking up residence on my back.

Ok, now that I have sufficiently insulted my self, and probably gotten you to disregard anything that might have been fruitful and left me Blue in the Face, or at least the tongue in the cheek after way too many Hawaiian Blue punches un pulled.  Allusion to the title below. Fore or Five Shadowing….

Anyway, let the story commence:

 

“What does a Rubber Band, a Broken Thing, to many Blue Hawaiian’s, and a Single Crutch, all have in Common?”
I’m now Glad you Asked!
But You, You may not be so Glad, before this tale of Sad Twisted Heartstring-Wrenching Tear-Drenching reaches its four or five gone gong show concussion conclusion, supporting no Unknown Comic’s paper bag anonymity, ripping and rending the tender veneer of civility from the once smiling now snarling caricature of a fellow Cougar of Stephenson 7th South as he swung and I jumped and twisted and landed with a loud pop as my left knee gave way and I started screaming!
He said “Get back up and stop screaming! I haven’t hit you yet!”

Turned out I had torn cartilage, and would have to have surgery. Only day open and soon was the day after I had a hot date scheduled, and she didn’t want to take my being on crutches as an excuse for not going over to Moscow.
I somehow managed to use one of the crutches to shift gears on my beat up Thing, and got to her place, and she offered to drive. Great! I could drink more!
About half way there something went thunk, then all the hamsters and gerbils in the transmission started screaming and tearing chunks out of the floor boards.
Forgot to tell her not to touch the 4 wheel drive stick as it was a might touchy. Touche…
Luckily we got picked up by a trucker, I sat next to him to keep him away from her. Big mistake, guess he liked guys, so tried to keep myself from becoming one of his hand fulls.
Some how I only ended up with one crutch by the time we hit the dance hall.
But hey! I only needed one, the other was kept full with Blue Hawaiian’s.
Then it was time to head back.
She left me.
One crutch.
A seven mile trudge.
Police cars going in reverse to avoid my hobble.
Car was towed before I got back to it.
Morale of the story, Don’t Shoot a Rubber band at anyone wearing just a towel, it might go to your Knee, and Break your Car and your Heart.


Microwaving Water!
A 26-year old man decided to have a cup of coffee. He took a cup of water and put it in the microwave to heat it up (something that he had done numerous times before). I am not sure how long he set the timer for, but he wanted to bring the water to a boil. When the timer shut the oven off, he removed the cup from the oven. As he looked into the cup, he noted that the water was not boiling, but suddenly the water in the cup ‘blew up’ into his face. The cup remained intact until he threw it out of his hand, but all the water had flown out into his face due to the build-up of energy. His whole face is blistered and he has 1st and 2nd degree burns to his face which may leave scarring.

He also may have lost partial sight in his left eye. While at the hospital, the doctor who was attending to him stated that this is a fairly common occurrence and water (alone) should never be heated in a microwave oven. If water is heated in this manner, something should be placed in the cup to diffuse the energy such as a wooden stir stick, tea bag, etc, (nothing metal).

General Electric’s Response:

Thanks for contacting us; I will be happy to assist you. The e-mail that you received is correct. Microwaved water and other liquids do not always bubble when they reach boiling point. They can actually get superheated and not bubble at all. The superheated liquid will bubble up out of the cup when it is moved or when something like a spoon or tea bag is put into it.

To prevent this from happening and causing injury, do not heat any liquid for more than two minutes per cup. After heating, let the cup stand in the microwave for thirty seconds before moving it or adding anything into it.

Here is what a local high school science teacher had to say on the matter: ‘Thanks for the microwave warning. I have seen this happen before. It is caused by a phenomenon known as super heating. It can occur any time water is heated and will particularly occur if the vessel that the water is heated in is new, or when heating a small amount of water (less than half a cup).

What happens is that the water heats faster than the vapor bubbles can form. If the cup is very new, then it is unlikely to have small surface scratches inside it that provide a place for the bubbles to form. As the bubbles cannot form and release some of the heat that has built up, the liquid does not boil, and the liquid continues to heat up well past its boiling point.

What then usually happens is that the liquid is bumped or jarred, which is just enough of a shock to cause the bubbles to rapidly form and expel the hot liquid. The rapid formation of bubbles is also why a carbonated beverage spews when opened after having been shaken.’

If you pass this on
, you could very well save someone from a lot of pain and suffering.

Lawyers and God


Part of rebuilding New Orleans caused residents often to be challenged with the task of tracing home titles back potentially hundreds of years.. With a community rich with history stretching back over two centuries, houses have been passed along through generations of family, sometimes making it quite difficult to establish ownership. Here’s a great letter an attorney wrote to the FHA on behalf of a client:

You have to love this lawyer…….

A New Orleans lawyer sought an FHA loan for a client. He was told the loan would be granted if he could prove satisfactory title to a parcel of property being offered as collateral. The title to the property dated back to 1803, which took the lawyer three months to track down. After sending the information to the FHA, he received the following reply.

(Actual reply from FHA):
“Upon review of your letter adjoining your client’s loan application, we note that the request is supported by an Abstract of Title. While we compliment the able manner in which you have prepared and presented the application, we must point out that you have only cleared title to the proposed collateral property back to 1803. Before final approval can be accorded, it will be necessary to clear the title back to its origin.”

Annoyed, the lawyer responded as follows:
(Actual response):

“Your letter regarding title in Case No.189156 has been received. I note that you wish to have title extended further than the 206 years covered by the present application.
I was unaware that any educated person in this country, particularly those working in the property area, would not know that Louisiana was purchased by the United States from France , in 1803 the year of origin identified in our application. For the edification of uninformed FHA bureaucrats, the title to the land prior to U.S. ownership was obtained from France , which had acquired it by Right of Conquest from Spain . The land came into the possession of Spain by Right of Discovery made in the year 1492 by a sea captain named Christopher Columbus, who had been granted the privilege of seeking a new route to India by the Spanish monarch, Queen Isabella.
The good Queen Isabella, being a pious woman and almost as careful about titles as the FHA, took the precaution of securing the blessing of the Pope before she sold her jewels to finance Columbus’s expedition…Now the Pope, as I’m sure you may know, is the emissary of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and God, it is commonly accepted, created this world. Therefore, I believe it is safe to presume that God also made that part of the world called Louisiana. God, therefore, would be the owner of origin and His origins date back to before the beginning of time, the world as we know it, and the FHA. I hope you find God’s original claim to be satisfactory. Now, may we have our loan?”
The loan was immediately approved.

Tips of Safety


Written by a Cop for Our Own Safety
(PLEASE DON’T DELETE, THIS MAY SAVE YOUR LIFE)
Everyone should take 5 minutes to read this. It may save your life or a loved one’s life.
In daylight hours, refresh yourself of these things to do in an emergency situation…
This is for you, and for you to share with your wife, your children, & everyone you know.
After reading these9 crucial tipsforward them to someone you care about.
It never hurts to be careful in this crazy world we live in. 

1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do :
The elbow is the strongest point on your body.
If you are close enough to use it, do!
2.Learned this from a tourist guide.
If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse,
DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM.
Toss it away from you….
Chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you, and he will go for the wallet/purse.
RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!
3.If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy..
The driver won’t see you, but everybody else will.
This has saved lives.
4.Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc.
(DON’T DO THIS!)
The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go.
AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR ,
LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE..
If someone is in the car with a gun to your head DO NOT DRIVE OFF,
Repeat:
DO NOT DRIVE OFF!
Instead gun the engine and
speed into anything, wrecking the car.
Your Air Bag will save you. If the person is in the back seat
they will get the worst of it.
As soon as the car crashes
bail out and run.
It is better than having them find your body in a remote location.
5.A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot,
or parking garage:
A.)    Be aware: look around you, look into your car, at  
the passenger side floor and in the back seat.
B.) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door.
Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.
C.)  Look at the car parked on the driver’s side of your vehicle, and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a
guard/policeman to walk you back out.
IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)
6.ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs.
Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot.
This is especially true at NIGHT!)
7.If the predator has a gun and you are not under his   control,
ALWAYS RUN!
The predator will only hit you (a running target)
4 in 100 times; and even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ.  RUN, Preferably in a zig -zag pattern!
8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic:
STOP
It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women.
He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked for   help into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.
9.Another Safety Point:
Someone just told me that her friend heard a crying baby on her porch the night before last, and she called the police because it was late and she thought it was weird.. The police told her
‘Whatever you do, DO NOT open the door..’
The lady then said that it sounded like the baby had crawled near a window, and she was worried that it would crawl to the street and get run over.
The policeman said, ‘We already have a unit on the way,
whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.’
He told her that they think a serial killer has a baby’s cry recorded and uses it
to coax women out of their homes thinking that someone dropped off a baby..
He said they have not verified it, but have had several calls by women saying that
they hear baby’s cries outside their doors when they’re home alone at night.
10. Water scam!
If you wake up in the middle of the night to hear all your taps outside running or what you think is a

burst pipe, DO NOT GO OUT TO INVESTIGATE!These people turn on all your outside taps full blast so that you will go out to investigate and then attack.

Stay alert, keep safe, and look out for your neighbors!

Please pass this on
This e-mail should probably be taken seriously because
the Crying Baby Theory was mentioned on
America ‘s Most Wanted when they profiled
the serial killer in  Louisiana 

I’d like you to forward this to all the women you know.

It may save a life. A candle is not dimmed by lighting another candle..
I was going to send this to the ladies only,
but guys, if you love your mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, etc.,
you may want to pass it onto them, as well.

Send this to any woman you know that may need to be reminded that the world we live in has a lot of crazies in it
and it’s better to be safe than sorry..
Everyone should take 5 minutes to read thisIt may save your life or
a loved one’s life.

10 years ago the USA hadSteve Jobs, Bob Hope andJohnny Cash ….

Now they have no Jobs, no Hope and no Cash


These are a set of questions and answers that actually appeared on an Australian tourism website. It’s nice to see a government agency that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

Note that the nationality of the person asking the question is indicated in parentheses.

Q: Does it ever get windy in Australia? I have never seen it rain on TV, how do the plants grow? (UK) 
A: We import all plants fully grown and then just sit around watching them die. 

Q: Will I be able to see kangaroos in the street? (USA) 
A: Depends how much you’ve been drinking.

Q: I want to walk from Perth to Sydney – can I follow the railroad tracks? (Sweden)
A: Sure, it’s only three thousand miles. Take lots of water. 

Q: Are there any ATMs (cash machines) in Australia? Can you send me a list of them in Brisbane, Cairns, Townsville and Hervey Bay? (UK) 
A: What did your last slave die of?

Q: Can you give me some information about hippo racing in Australia? (USA) 
A: A-fri-ca is the big, triangle-shaped continent south of Europe.
Aus-tra-lia is that big island in the middle of the Pacific, which does not…
Oh, forget it. Sure, the hippo racing is every Tuesday night in King’s Cross. Come naked.

Q: Which direction is north in Australia? (USA) 
A: Face south, and then turn 180 degrees. Contact us when you get here, and we’ll send the rest of the directions.

Q: Can I bring cutlery into Australia? (UK) 
A: Why? Just use your fingers like we do.

Q: Can you send me the Vienna Boys’ Choir schedule? (USA)
A: Aus-tri-a is that quaint little country bordering Ger-man-y, which is…  
Oh, forget it. Sure, the Vienna Boys’ Choir plays every Tuesday night in King’s Cross, straight after the hippo races. Come naked.

Q: Can I wear high heels in Australia? (UK) 
A: You are a British politician, right?

Q: Are there supermarkets in Sydney, and is milk available all year round? (Germany) 
A: No, we are a peaceful civilization of vegan hunter/gatherers. Milk is illegal.

Q: Please send a list of all doctors in Australia who can dispense rattlesnake serum. (USA) 
A: Rattlesnakes live in A-meri-ca, which is where YOU come from. All Australian snakes are perfectly harmless, can be safely handled, and make good pets.

Q: I have a question about a famous animal in Australia, but I forget its name. It’s a kind of bear and lives in trees. (USA) 
A: It’s called a Drop Bear. They are so called because they drop out of gum trees and eat the brains of anyone walking underneath them. You can scare them off by spraying yourself with human urine before you go out walking.

Q: I have developed a new product that is the fountain of youth. Can you tell me where I can sell it in Australia? (USA) 
A: Anywhere significant numbers of Americans gather.

Q: Do you celebrate Christmas in Australia? (France) 
A: Only at Christmas.

Q: Will I be able to speak English most places I go? (USA) 
A: Yes, but you’ll have to learn it first.
