National Roof Over Your Head Day
When : Always December 3
Today is National Roof Over Your Head Day. It is a day of appreciation for the things we have, starting with the roof over our heads.
For most of us, a roof over our head signifies living in a house that protects us from the elements, keeping us warm, dry, and cozy. Unfortunately, not everyone is as lucky as you and I. There are many homeless people right here in our country. Some people live in a cardboard box on the street…… literally. There are millions of people around the world who live in poverty or disaster areas, and do not have a home to kees them comfortable and safe.
Spend a few minutes appreciating your roof and home today, along with the many thins you have. And, also make a contribution to a homeless shelter, so others can come in out of the rain.
Happy National Roof Over Your Head Day!
Origin of National Roof Over Your Head Day:
Despite our diligent efforts, we have yet to find who created Roof Over Your Head, or Roof Over Your Head Day. Nor, did we find factual information about this day.
There was some reference to this as a “National Day”. However, we found no congressional records or presidential proclamation.
Well look at that! I finally found a Tee Shirt for all of us Dragon Laffers!
I really love these things:

Nobody knows what the fuck it says, because no one has the guts to pull the cord.

Finally, a way to describe Obama and his voters.
I love this word!
Ineptocracy (in-ep-toc’-ra-cy) – a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers

Is Sex “Work”?
A U.S. Marine Colonel was about to start the morning briefing to his staff. While waiting for the coffee machine to finish its brewing – the colonel decided to pose a question to all assembled.
He explained that his wife had been a bit frisky the night before and he failed to get his usual amount of sound sleep. He posed the question of just how much of sex was “work” and how much of it was “pleasure?”
A Major chimed in with 75-25% in favor of work.
A Captain said it was 50-50%.
A lieutenant responded with 25-75% in favor of pleasure, depending upon his state of inebriation at the time.
There being no consensus, the colonel turned to the PFC who was in charge of making the coffee. What was HIS opinion?
Without any hesitation, the young PFC responded, “Sir, it has to be 100% pleasure.”
The colonel was surprised and, as you might guess, asked why.
“Well, sir, if there was any work involved, the officers would have me doing it for them.”
The room fell silent.
God Bless the enlisted man
My prayer for 2012 is for
A fat bank account & a thin body.
Please don’t mix these up like you did last year.
A friend of mine just started his own business.
He manufactures land mines that look like prayer mats.
It’s doing well.
He says prophets are going through the roof.
There were several cool and rant-worthy articles this week that the Leprechaun and I traded back and forth. But today, maybe because of my military background or maybe because I’m going to work this morning to train those same military guys in how to stay alive in a really crappy environment, I’ve got an article for you guys to read…have you ever wondered what China was doing with all the interest money that we’ve been paying them? Well, it seems that at least part of it was going for construction of a 3000 mile underground tunnel system for their nuclear ICBMs (Intercontinental Ballistic Missile). and the really intersting thing is who has been working so dilegently to uncover the truth….
You’ll be surprised.
Start reading here:
The Chinese have called it their “Underground Great Wall” — a vast network of tunnels designed to hide their country’s increasingly sophisticated missile and nuclear arsenal.
For the past three years, a small band of obsessively dedicated students at Georgetown University has called it something else: homework.
Led by their hard-charging professor, a former top Pentagon official, they have translated hundreds of documents, combed through satellite imagery, obtained restricted Chinese military documents and waded through hundreds of gigabytes of online data.
The result of their effort? The largest body of public knowledge about thousands of miles of tunnels dug by the Second Artillery Corps, a secretive branch of the Chinese military in charge of protecting and deploying its ballistic missiles and nuclear warheads. http://news.yahoo.com/digging-china-nuclear-tunnels-013008319.html
