Wind Power...

A man died and went to heaven. As he stood in front of St. Peter at the Pearly Gates, he saw a huge wall of clocks behind him. He asked, 'What are all those clocks?' St. Peter answered, 'Those are Lie-Clocks. Everyone on Earth has a Lie-Clock. Every time you lie the hands on your clock will move.' 'Oh,' said the man, 'whose clock is that?' 'That's Mother Teresa's. The hands have never moved, indicating that she never told a lie.' 'Incredible,' said the man. 'And whose clock is that one?' St. Peter responded, 'That's Abraham Lincoln's clock. The hands have moved twice, telling us that Abe told only two lies in his entire life.' 'Where's President OBama's clock?' asked the man. Obama's clock is in Jesus' office. He's using it as a ceiling fan.

Nuff said.

Mr. Obama, it may surprise you but many citizens are not in agreement with the Moronic Left.

Liberal Minds Think Alike...

Political cartoonists are a wonderful bunch. The successful are witty and intelligent and humorous while getting their message out. Sometimes, if you think about what they're saying, it gets quite disturbing.


Take these for example:

Semper Fi...

The Trap

A large group of Taliban soldiers are moving down a road when they hear a voice call from behind a sand-dune. "One Marine is better than ten Taliban". The Taliban commander quickly sends 10 of his best soldiers over the dune whereupon a gun-battle breaks out and continues for a few minutes, then silence.

The voice then calls out "One Marine is better than a hundred Taliban soldiers". Furious, the Taliban commander sends his next best 100 troops over the dune and instantly a huge gun fight commences. After 10 minutes of battle, again silence.

The Marine voice calls out, "One Marine is better than one thousand Taliban". The enraged Taliban commander musters a thousand fighters and sends them over the dune. Cannon, rocket, and machine gun fire rings out as a huge battle is fought. Then silence. Finally one wounded Taliban fighter crawls back over the dune and with his dying words tells his commander, "Don't send any more men, it's a trap. There's two of them!"

Is he truly our President?

Article II, Section 1, Paragraph 5 of the Constitution of the United States reads:


No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.


Is it so hard Mr. Obama to furnish the paperwork evidence to put this issue to bed?


He swore to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States not to rewrite it.

4 Rules of life...


DRINK, STEAL, SWEAR & LIE
I met this guy while I was in Albuquerque and he has a motto he lives by everyday. He said listen carefully and live by these 4 rules: Drink, Steal, Swear, & Lie.
I was shaking my head 'no', but he then told me to listen while he explained his four rules. So here they are:
1. "Drink" from the "everlasting cup" every day.
2. "Steal" a moment to help someone that is in worse shape than you are.
3. "Swear" that you will be a better person today than yesterday.
4. And last, but not least, when you "lie" down at night, thank God you live in America and have freedom.
I am not as good as I should be, I am not as good as I could be, but THANK GOD I am better than I used to be !

Liberal Economics 101...

It is a slow day in the East Texas town of Madisonville. It is raining, and the little town looks totally deserted. Times are tough, everybody is in debt and everybody lives on credit. On this particular day a rich tourist from the East is driving through town. He enters the only hotel in the sleepy town and lays a hundred dollar bill on the desk stating he wants to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to pick one to spend the night.



As soon as the man walks up the stairs, the hotel proprietor takes the hundred dollar bill and runs next door to pay his debt to the butcher.



The butcher takes the $100 and runs down the street to pay his debt to the pig farmer.



The pig farmer then takes the $100 and heads off to pay his debt to the supplier of feed and fuel.



The guy at the Farmer's Co-op takes the $100 and runs to pay his debt to the local prostitute, who has also been facing hard times and has lately had to offer her "services" on credit.



The hooker runs to the hotel and pays off her debt with the $100 to the hotel proprietor, paying for the rooms that she had rented when she brought clients to that establishment.



The hotel proprietor then lays the $100 bill back on the counter so the rich traveler will not suspect anything.



At that moment the traveler from the East walks back down the stairs, after inspecting the rooms. He picks up the $100 bill and states that the rooms are not satisfactory......pockets the money and walks out the door and leaves town.



No one earned anything, however the whole town is now out of debt, and looks to the future with a lot of optimism.



That, ladies and gentlemen, is how Governments are conducting business today.

Liberal Brain Trust Performance Check


An interesting chart where the blue lines represent the liberal think tank's unemployment estimations with and without the stimulus. The actual performance is rather scary at best. The actual unemployment trajectory looks much like the smoke trail of a shuttle launch. I wonder if it will ever come down after orbit is achieved?

Prayer helps...

I learned the following prayer in the first or second grade and have always found it to give me solace and hope.



Memorare

Remember O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that any one who fled to thy protection, implored thy help or sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins my mother. To thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of thy Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.

Amen

Advice for General Motors Executives

1. Change the locks on the conference room doors (and don't give anybody the key).

2. Remove MS Powerpoint from all computers.

3. Move your office to the plant floor, roll up your sleeves, get to work building cars and trucks.

General Motors...the day after

Just a couple more comments on this debacle and then I will let it die. From my point of view there are three groups:

Group 1: The Unclassified Salaried Employee. This is the group that "runs" the corporation. They are on the board, they set the requirements and path, they sit back and collect their bonuses for a job well done. They are asking themselves, "What the hell happened?" Their retirement and benefits remain intact.

Group 2: The Classified Salaried Employee. This is the group charged with implementing the brain farts of Group Number One. They were expected to work 10-12 hour days without overtime or their appraisals would show that they were not team players. Their retirement and benefits were or will be stripped from them.

Group 3: The UAW Workforce. Threaten to strike every three years if they didn't get their way. Ask Group 1 for and receive full pay for not doing anything. Ask Group 1 for and receive guaranteed overtime whether it's necessary or not. Punch your buddy in and do two jobs while your buddy is out on his boat. Not to worry, he'll do the same for you tomorrow. Their retirement and benefits remain intact.

I will probably never be able to buy a new car again but if I do, you can bet your a$$ it will not have a GM nameplate on it.

General Motors Bankruptcy

The General has fallen! I spent 24 years at GM. I hired in as an hourly employee and finished college while working full time. After graduation, my goal was to step up to the salaried ranks and perhaps offer my family a little better standard of living, acheiving the enviable position of mid level manager in the automotive components group. Being part of the ACG got me a one way ticket to the financial scam GM called Delphi. Their 8 month bankruptcy is still going 3 years later. When my job ran out I was forced into retirement taking a severe monetary hit due to my age but I had little choice.

While not expecting to be rich in my retirement, I did expect to receive a steady pension and health care benefits until the government mandated benefits kicked in. After 32 years I thought I had earned that much. Boy was I mistaken. Less than a year later, Delphi pulled the salaried retiree health care coverage and life insurance coverage. Now it is almost a certainty that our pensions will be turned over to the PBGC. Another drastic cut in pay looms. Take one for the team!

The salaried workforce will pay the price. I expect the same to happen to the GM salaried retirees as well. While Obama and the Democrats protect the UAW workforce and retirees the salaried workforce will fall into the black hole of who gives a fu**. I'm not talking about the unclassified salaried workforce that receives the bonuses and cars, I'm talking about the poor salaried bastards that were left to implement the idiotic requirements set forth by the bonus babies while fending off the UAW workforce that managed to come into work 4 days a week and usually late.

Yes I am angry. I now know how the folks an Enron feel.

GM Bankruptcy

Waiting for the announcement...more to follow.
