Monkeys

Start with a cage containing five monkeys.

Inside the cage, hang a banana on a string and place a set of stairs under it. Before long, a monkey will go to the stairs and start to climb towards the banana.

As soon as he touches the stairs, spray all the other monkeys with cold water. After a while another monkey makes the attempt with same result, all the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Pretty soon when another Monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it.

Now, put the cold water away. Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new one. The new monkey sees the banana and wants to climb the Stairs.

To his shock, all of the other monkeys attack him. After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs he will be assaulted.

Next, remove another of the original five monkeys and replace it with a new one. The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment with enthusiasm.

Likewise, replace a third original monkey with a new one, then a fourth, then the fifth. Every time the newest monkey takes to the stairs he is attacked.

Most of the monkeys that are beating him up have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs or why they are participating in the beating of the newest monkey. After replacing all of the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys have ever been sprayed with cold water. Nevertheless, no monkey ever again approaches the stairs to try for the banana.

Why not?

Because as far as they know, that is the way it has always been done around here.

And that, my fellow monkeys, is how Congress operates…. We need to REPLACE all the original monkeys this November.

Weird!

This is so strange!!!

A.  Did you know that the word “racecar” spelled backward still spells
“racecar”?

B.  Did you know that “eat” is the only word that if you take the 1st
letter and move it to the last, it spells its past tense “ate”?

C.  And have you noticed that if you rearrange the letters in “illegal
immigrants” and add just a few more letters, it spells out: “Go home you
free-loading, benefit-grabbing, kid-producing, violent, non-English
speaking maroons and take those other hairy-faced, sandal-wearing,
bomb-making, goat-loving, raggedy-ass bastards with you”?

How weird is that???

My son’s smoking is killing me ;(

I’ve been in Alaska since Saturday visiting my son…..he’s chain smoking….and it’s breaking my heart.

Lung cancer killed my father at the ripe old age of 64…..I quit 17 years ago because my boys asked me to quit…and here I sit in my son’s living room….breathing in the very smoke that he begged me to quit….

There’s really no point to this post other than my heart is heavy…..I can barely breathe and I feel like I need a shower…..my heart hurts knowing that I made my children breathe this air and that they smelled like this going to school…..and here I sit……. Karma?

Pick Your Reason

Pick Your Reason

When your friends can’t explain why they voted for Democrats, give them this list.  They can then pick a reason .

10. I voted Democrat because I believe oil companies’ profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn’t.

9. I voted Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

8. I voted Democrat because Freedom of speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

7. I voted Democrat because I’m way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves.

6. I voted Democrat because I believe that people who can’t tell us if it will rain on Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in ten years if I don’t start driving a Prius.

5. I voted Democrat because I’m not concerned about the slaughter of millions of babies through abortion so long as we keep all death row inmates alive.

4. I voted Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits.

3. I voted Democrat because I believe that business should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the democrats see fit.

2. I voted Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

1. I voted Democrat because my head is so firmly planted up my ass it’s unlikely that I’ll ever have another point of view.

Liberals VS Conservatives

If a conservative doesn’t like guns, he doesn’t buy one.
If a liberal doesn’t like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn’t eat meat.
If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

If a conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
If a liberal is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.

If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him.

If a conservative doesn’t like a talk show host, he switches channels.
Liberals demand that those they don’t like be shut down.

If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn’t go to church
A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced. (Unless it’s a foreign religion, of course!)

If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it or may choose a job that provides it.
A liberal demands that the rest of us pay for his.

If a conservative reads this, he’ll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh.
A liberal will delete it because he’s “offended”.

I blame the margaritas….

Down 1.2……I won’t lie….I’m a little disappointed. Yeah….I should be happy it moved in the right direction…but I was hoping for another good loss to propel me a little further on this journey.

We went out for Mexican on Saturday and I had a margarita and grilled chicken with veggies…..I didn’t even eat it all….but when I warmed up the leftovers today for lunch they were kinda greasy….guess that’s why they tasted so good 😉

I’m just going to blame this on the margaritas and sodium….I’m retaining water….yeah…that’s it.

OK…who am I kidding….I’m just going to be more conscious this week of sodium consumption and how foods are prepared when I eat out.

I did step up the weights too…and I’m feeling it today for sure.

Oh well…no regrets…..even the kids on The Biggest Loser have a hard time in week 2!

You have two families: “Joe Legal” and “Jose Illegal”.  Both families have two parents, two children, and live in California.

Jose Illegal also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number, and gets paid $15.00 cash “under the table”.

Ready?  Now pay attention…

Joe Legal: $25.00 per hour x 40 hours = $1000 per week, or $52,000 per year.  Now take 30% away for state and federal tax; Joe Legal now has $31,231.

Jose Illegal: $15.00 per hour x 40 hours = $600 per week, or $31,200 per year.  Jose Illegal pays no taxes.  Jose Illegal now has $31,200.

Jose Illegal has nights and weekends off to enjoy with his family.

Joe Legal’s and Jose Illegal’s children both attend the same school. Joe Legal pays for his children’s lunches while Jose Illegal’s children get a government sponsored lunch.  Jose Illegal’s children have an after school ESL program.  Joe Legal’s children go home.

Joe Legal and Jose Illegal both enjoy the same police and fire services, but Joe paid for them and Jose did not pay.

Do you get it, now?

If you vote for or support any politician that supports illegal aliens…You are part of the problem!

It’s way PAST time to take a stand for America and Americans!
