Very Wise Words from Ginny
COMPLETE & FINISHED.
But there is.
When you marry the right one, you are COMPLETE.
And when you marry the wrong one, you are FINISHED.
And when the right one catches you with the wrong one,
you are… COMPLETELY FINISHED
There’s a technical term for a sunny, warm day
which follows two rainy days. It’s called Monday.
The General went out to find that none of his G.I.s were there. One finally ran up, panting heavily.
“Sorry, sir! I can explain, you see I had a date and it ran a little late. I ran to the bus but missed it, I hailed a cab but it broke down, found a farm, bought a horse but it dropped dead, ran 10 miles, and now I’m here.”
The General was very skeptical about this explanation but at least he was here so he let the G.I. go. Moments later, eight more G.I.s came up to the general panting, he asked them why they were late.
“Sorry, sir! I had a date and it ran a little late, I ran to the bus but missed it, I hailed a cab but it broke down, found a farm, bought a horse but it dropped dead, ran 10 miles, and now I’m here.”
The General eyed them, feeling very skeptical but since he let the first guy go, he let them go, too. A ninth G.I. jogged up to the General, panting heavily.
“Sorry, sir! I had a date and it ran a little late, I ran to the bus but missed it, I hailed a cab but…”
“Let me guess,” the General interrupted, “it broke down.”
“No,” said the G.I., “there were so many dead horses in the road, it took forever to get around them.”

Okay, this one is WAY COOL! So cool, in fact, that the store that makes them is sold out and off line because of such high order volume, but I found them on Amazon for $35. How about one of these on a kid’s ward at the hospital?
BIG PEOPLE WORDS
A group of kindergartners were trying very hard to become accustomed to the first grade.The biggest hurdle they faced was that the teacher insisted on NO baby talk!
You need to use ‘Big People words,’ she was always reminding them.
She asked John what he had done over the weekend?‘I went to visit my Nana.’
‘No, you went to visit your GRANDMOTHER. Use ‘Big People’ words!’She then asked Mitchell what he had done‘I took a ride on a choo-choo.’She said. ‘No, you took a ride on a TRAIN. You must remember to use ‘Big People’ words.’
She then asked little Alex what he had done?‘I read a book,’ he replied.
That’s WONDERFUL!’ the teacher said.
‘What book did you read?’ ( I love this…) Alex thought real hard about it, then puffed out his chest with great pride and said:“Winnie the SHIT”
This is the BEST (and most complete) photo collection of U.S. military airplanes that I have ever seen.
Today’s Last Word…is an opinion piece that comes to us from the Register Citizen:
SUSAN STAMPER BROWN: Why the rush to pass the American Jobs Act?
As the Democratic National Committee (DNC) launches an ad campaign in battleground states to promote rapid passage of President Barack Obama’s “American Jobs Act,” I cannot help but to ask, “Why the rush, Mr. President?”
While proposed payroll tax cuts would be useful to hard-working coupon-clipping Americans, common sense suggests that something is wrong, if, during a Joint Session of Congress, the president demands 14 different times to “pass this bill now.”
My father taught me well; high-pressure sales pitches never end well for the consumer. Another wise father, Lord Chesterfield, also taught his child well in 1749, when he said, “Whoever is in a hurry shows that the thing he is about to do is too big for him.”
Considering the abject failure of the administration’s previous mammoth-sized stimulus “jobs” bill, why would anyone with common sense consider a similar bill, about half the size, could create jobs? In what can only be perceived as a slick Chicago-style political maneuver, the administration is attempting to divert attention away from past failures and place the responsibility of excessive debt and unemployment in Congress’ corner.
Americans should think twice before hopping on the Democrats’ bandwagon bound for bankruptcy, and instead urge elected representatives to pass a bill to disable regulations that are strangling business owners and entrepreneurs. Much like the “jobs saved or created” in the previous stimulus bill, the American Jobs Act, will only put a bandage over the gushing artery that is our economy; a frightfully expensive gimmick to drive down unemployment numbers temporarily, and thereby bolstering Obama’s re-election chances in 2012.
America learned the costly lesson of jumping headlong into a cement pond before checking first to see if it had water. Taxpayers (and future taxpayers) have not yet recovered from injuries suffered from the last Stimulus bill which was supposed to settle unemployment at or below 8 percent. And, only heaven knows the economic ramifications of Obamacare.
The original Stimulus bill has proven to be a “gift that keeps on taking.” The Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) August 24, 2011, Annual Summer Update, reported that the unemployment rate “will remain above 8 percent until 2014.”
Nearly $800 billion was “invested” chasing shiny objects to no avail. A prime example is the recipient of a $535 million U.S. Treasury loan guarantee who just went belly up — sending upwards of 1100 workers to the unemployment lines and leaving taxpayers with the tab. The solar panel company, Solyndra, was the third U.S. solar company to go bankrupt in recent weeks due to apparent subsidized competition from China.
Back in 2010, Obama stood in Solyndra’s plant avowing the “future is here.” If it is, the future looks a bit dismal. And, once again, we are expected to trust the president’s judgment and blindly march to cliff’s edge as mindless lemmings. It may be a better time to slow down to consider the danger of haste and the value of deliberateness. And, maybe pause to pray — before we plunge.

Here’s the REAL problem with the American economy!
John Smith started the day early having set his alarm clock (MADE IN JAPAN) for 6 am.
While his coffeepot (MADE IN CHINA) was perking, he shaved with his electric razor (MADE IN HONG KONG). He put on a dress shirt (MADE IN SRI LANKA), designer jeans (MADE IN SINGAPORE) and tennis shoes (MADE IN KOREA).
After cooking his breakfast in his new electric skillet (MADE IN INDIA) he sat down with his calculator (MADE IN MEXICO) to see how much he could spend today. After setting his watch (MADE IN TAIWAN) to the radio (MADE IN INDIA) he got in his car (MADE IN GERMANY) filled it with GAS (from Saudi Arabia) and continued his search for a good paying AMERICAN JOB.
At the end of yet another discouraging and fruitless day checking his computer (made in MALAYSIA), John decided to relax for a while. He put on his sandals (MADE IN BRAZIL), poured himself a glass of wine (MADE IN FRANCE) and turned on his TV (MADE IN INDONESIA), and then wondered why he can’t find a good paying job in AMERICA!
AND NOW HE’S HOPING HE CAN GET HELP FROM A PRESIDENT MADE IN KENYA!
And now, one final point:
The National Debt In Terms Anybody Can Grasp:
This below states the USA financial position succinctly:
U.S. Tax Revenue: $2,170,000,000,000
Federal Budget: $3,820,000,000,000
New Debt: $1,650,000,000,000
National Debt: $14,271,000,000,000
Recent Budget Cut: $38,500,000,000
Now, let’s remove 8 zeroes from each row …
U.S. Tax Revenue: $2,170,0
Federal Budget: $3,820,0
New Debt: $1,650,0
National Debt: $14,271,0
Recent Budget Cut: $38,5
And now pretend it’s your household budget:
Annual Family Income: $21,700
Money the Family Spent This Year: $38,200
Money you had to put on the credit card to make up the difference: $16,500
Total Outstanding Balance on the credit card: $142,710
Total Budget Cuts to bring your budget in line: $385
So, at this rate, you will only put $16,115 on your credit card next year. Sure, that will help!
