Nobody’s Opinion About 2012

Nobody’s Opinion

Anybody want to hear what I have to say about 2012? No?Sandy two

Nobody Thinks this year was mutilated, as sure as a Kentucky Fried Chicken….but the main thing we are going to remember is…..is the rush of all of us stocking up on guns at the end of the year because, for the first time in history, SOMEHOW, a man who has single-handily changed America’s greatness to fast becoming a third world country, got reelected.

Yes, the election was a fraud….the race might have been close, but we’ll never know, because for the first time in America’s history, we have Hugo Chavez as President. He just has a much more expensive bombardier jacket, better teeth, and a bigger plane.

The year WAS– nothing but politics. Right down to the last day in November we were unmercifully bombarded with the fact that Mitt Romney kills dogs and people, and hides his money in the Cayman Islands.  Mitt Romney somehow could not muster up the courage to call Obama what he really is: A crack head taking us all to communism on a fast bus to El Salvador.

And you know what? I CAN call the President a crack head. Since Obama became ‘President’ my neighborhood is full of them.  If he can play golf with pimps, I can call him a crack head, knowing perhaps all too well that I’d better say it now…because it won’t be long before I can’t say such things.

The Republicans ran such a weak campaign, it was as if they hadn’t noticed that condoms are being handed out along with joints in our high schools, and the President lets his secret service have prostitutes at their beck and call. Mitt failed to mention that Obama, not only unfairly took the credit for killing bin Laden, but let 4 men die in Benghazi—and….not to mention, how he loves to sell guns to our enemies. And it’s not just south of the border that got Obama Guns…He’s arming half the Middle East.

When push came to shove, the Republicans were lost. They whisked Paul Ryan out..and then stupidly hid him.

They didn’t stand a chance.  So now we’re stuck with a Putin understudy.

In the annals of history, Obama will look even more incredibly malevolent. What President could pull off making you and I pay for everyone else’s abortion? What President could celebrate closing our space station? Or our Military? What President could tell you that you won’t get that heart surgery after a certain age?

Obama can…YES HE CAN. And he can triple the deficit, destory our top credit rating,  close down Gibson Guitars, and Hostess, and NASA , and Lucas, and even Solyndra, and thousands of strip malls all across the country, all the while offering amnesty, and drones, and setting the whole Middle East on the path to fanatical Muslim Brotherhood fairyland.

This fMitt and McCainrom a man who hung out in the gay bars of Chicago.

But we had other news: It wasn’t only our country where the leaders seemed insane.  Europe is starting to look like a travelogue for anarchy.  Kum Jong Un thinks he is Dr. Strangelove, and the British Royals love to go naked. Prince Harry was naked in Las Vegas and Kate the new pregnant bride was naked everywhere else. I don’t know about you, but this Nobody Thinks she married the wrong Prince.

And yet, The Royals managed to have the biggest year yet, celebrating the Queen’s 60th, and naming Big Ben, Big Queen, and throwing the biggest most expensive Olympic ever seen in the Isles of Wright. Where socialized medicine will be the New British export. It was a great “green” display and a downright almost Benny Hill advertisement for the glories of socialism, the biggest propaganda display on that subject that we’ve ever seen, complete with Paul McCartney’s cracking voice at the end singing…”Live and Let Dieeeeeeeeeeeee”

And the elites get to choose, who lives and who dies in the future. But…what else is new?

Michael Phelps will no doubt lose all his gold metals someday to Lance Armstrong. Hockey…might never come back.  And baseball…may give way to soccer by 2022, the year the earth might finally come to an end, because although the elites think that they might all just exist the planet, that doesn’t there’ll be any astronauts left to take them.

As far as disasters go, we had the worst drought in two -thirds of the United States. And more fires. My grass got green for one whole week…and then we had…Hurricane Sandy.  Sandy hit the Jersey Shore, and Jersey Christie, stuck his finger into the union wind, and ran to the President’s side.  FEMA was collecting discarded 16oz soda cups and forgetting to drop off food to the weary.  By that time we were all so disgusted with politics, in our fatique we ignored how FAST they tallied the Presidential voting results, and crowned him King.

Which he is. Obama can now arrest any one of us, hold us without trial, and not even TELL anybody where we are or why

And as if the devil himself was working for Obama–some kid went nuts and killed innocents babes at a school. Oh…and his mother was a Teapartier.

“She was from gun culture. Live free or die. That was truly her upbringing,”

You couldn’t WRITE a better power script for Obama…so next year we WILL have gun control..and once again the Supreme Court will demolish the Constitution.

They’re getting pretty good at it.

We lost some good people in 2012: Neil Armstrong, and Ray Bradbury…who befittingly died with our space program. Dick Clark— although I’m surprised they don’t stuff his body and just let it ride down the ball at midnight, in fact, I think Dick would be honored. Hell, his hair would be honored!

Whitney Houston will no longer have to give up cocaine: Opie can now claim Andy Griffith was a secret tea partier and gay: Donna Summer drag queens will get paid double on Sunday: I can finally name my next dog Fang, Phyllis Diller won’t care: and Helen Gurly Brown can get together somewhere with Nora Ephran (The lady who put the orgasim in When Harry Met Sally) and educate Joe Paterno on the finer points of child molestation. Neil Armstrong

And God Bless Mike Wallace, who had the wisdom to tell everybody that he suffered from depressions, making the rest of us feel better.

And then there was the saddest news of all. We had more soldiers commit suicide…than we lost in the war.

Mike Wallace didn’t see that one coming.

That’s another first. They served to help build a country, where they are hated, and they come home to a country, where they WILL be disarmed, and ignored, and if you think Obama has nothing to do with our finest men and women committing suicide, think again.

Yes, we are Kentucky Fried…unless…we arm ourselves with the truth.

And that’s why I’m posting this link. Please…take a look. (Movie…worth it…check it out…go ahead..good stuff…)

It’s all you need to know about how this all happened.

It’s long…I know….almost an hour. But…Honey Boo Boo…believe me, can wait.

2013 will be the time the last remaining Americans stand up and say..

THIS…is our finest hour.

At that, I am almost sure…..

Almost….maybe…uh…Pointing

Nobody’s Email: Here Comes the Judge…Here Comes the Taxman…

Nobody Gets Email

Hey! The fiscal cliff is…counting down…FIVE, FOUR…THREE…THREE and a half…THREE and Two-Quarters…Three and..

I just got this a few minutes ago…

Read it…and then think about all the NEW taxes that are coming our way!

We may beat France yet!

(Thanks to Mona)

**********

This is too true to be funny. The next time you hear a politician use the word ‘billion’ in a casual manner, think about whether you want the politicians spending YOUR tax money.taxes two

A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but on advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into some perspective in one of its releases.

A. A billion seconds ago it was 1959.

B. A billon minutes ago Jesus was alive.

C.  A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.

D. A billion days ago no one walked on the earth on two feet.

E.  A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes at the rate our government is spending it.

While this thought is still fresh in our brain…let’s take a look at New Orleans…It’s amazing what you can learn with some simple division.taxes three

Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu (D) was asking Congress for 250 billion dollars to rebuild New Orleans. Interesting number. What does it mean?

A. Well…If you are one of the 487,674 residents of New Orleans (every man, woman, and child) $516, 528.

B. OR…If you have one of the 188,251 homes in New Orleans, your home gets $1, 329, 787

C. OR…If you are a family of four…Your family gets $2,066,012.

Washington D.C…..HELLO! Are all your calculators broken?

We had the largest middle class in the world…

And Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What happened?  Can you spell…”Politicians” !

The American/China Merger

Nobody Wonders

“Enemy of the State” is one of my favorite movies. Will Smith plays the main character, and he is hunted by the NSA because, although, he doesn’t know it, he was slipped a video of a Senator having someone murdered. It’s a great action film, but I wonder how many people believed in what the film was trying to educate the American public on: Everything we say or do, can be, without warrant..observed. The fact is, all of our data is being stored. The new technology that we are all excited about, is being used by our government to spy on us….and yet, we all are conditioned that it’s necessary.

If you talk about this to ANYONE..they always say, “Well hey! I’m not doing anything wrong, why should I worry?”

Or…as they once said in Nazi Germany, “They didn’t come after ME..I wasn’t Jewish, so I just didn’t worry about it.”

It was around the time of that movie, (1998) that I started noticing blackouts when I was listening to the radio. I couldn’t blame them on just random radio waves causing static, because I observed that they always  happened right when some conservative talk show host was about to reveal something sinister about our government.  They happened when I listened to Rush Limbaugh, or Alex Jones on Coast to Coast, and many other stations. They still happen time and again, but ONLY when some secret is about to be revealed, so no…I don’t believe my neighbor is turning on his Wi-Fi at the exact same time I’m waiting for the secret to be revealed. Nope—- because this even happens when I’m listening to the radio in my car at the exact moment when I am going,  “Wow…I can’t BELIEVE they are going to talk about this…finally…somebody is going to talk about this!” And then you hear the first word and then—–ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ…

Last night I was listening to the radio, and George Noory was interviewing a man who’s FACEBOOK account had been taken down…because he put up a Gandhi quote:

The reports are absolutely true. Facebook suspended the Natural News account earlier today after we posted an historical quote from Mohandas Gandhi. The quote reads:

“Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.” – Mohandas Gandhi, an Autobiography, page 446.

This historical quote was apparently too much for Facebook’s censors to bear. They suspended our account and gave us a “final warning” that one more violation of their so-called “community guidelines” would result in our account being permanently deactivated.

Evidently, this is happening to many conservatives sites. I’ve never been a fan of Facebook, because frankly, I think it’s a government dream which is gathering information on you, and your friends, and every single thing about you. And how does this make us any different than China? When Obama gathers all the heads of the great social media sites in the White House, it’s not to talk about his golf game.

He is collaborting with them.

According to an article on Drudge: China has tightened internet controls, legalizing the deletion of posts or pages which are deemed to contain “illegal” information.

So, now we are starting it here. We are becoming China.

Because this is happening in bits and pieces, no one is much concerned about this. But yesterday I checked out a book at the library, and for the first time (I’m been checking out library books for over 50 years.) I found blocks of paragraphs …just blacked out. (see photo) RB 2 001

So, they couldn’t block the book, but now it seems the government can blank out what they don’t want the public to read.

Add up all these little bits and pieces and you can see what’s coming.

Now, the aim is to “fundamentally” change America, and destroying our Bill of Righs..free speech, guns, and right to privacy is already in the making. And the words of Sam Donaldson are freightening.  He indicates that tea party people’s ideas are old and outdated, but the fact is, these old and outdated rights of freedom are being replaced with the new tyranny of soft communism…and Sam considers himself privy to the “new America” where one man will decide just about everything.

The tea party people are for freedom. It’s that simple.

The “tea party” people, are being attacked like the Jews of old. And pretty soon, putting up any quotation from the Constitution will be taken down.

It’s been done bit by bit…on purpose, but be prepared for one day to wake up, and like my friend Mona says…on our TV will be…”THE STATE.”

And if you don’t go along with it…you will be…the enemy. If you are a “tea party” American patriot…you already are.

Remember…once upon a time Sam Adams head was on the top of King George’s list. You are in…good company.

Our founders gave us the best Constitution in the world…let’s not lose it.

Nobody Knows the Truth About Mercury

Nobody Knows

Do YOU know how many hours are in a day on Mercury? I didn’t…58.  I saw this and thought it was so funny I wanted to share it.

The truth is: It’s almost midnight, my husband’s mother died today, I forgot to thaw out the ravioli sauce for dinner, so ended up cooking French Toast—(And was craving salad)  broke my video camera, and did not get into even THINKING about a blog today due to all the stress .. so all the “serious” stuff I WAS going to write about…can wait.

There’s been a death in the family. Even if she didn’t like me…(And that’s putting it mildly) she did something very right…she gave birth to my loving husband.

So, I needed a good laugh tonight.

That’s the truth.

Enjoy! And tell me if you don’t go to bed tonight trying to figure out the three spins in one year stuff.

The Sands of Saud On the Floors of the White House

Nobody Reports

In his recent novel about JFK, Stephen King goes back in time and saves Kennedy from assassination. At the end of the book, he described how many books he had read about the JFK assassination and by all he had read, he was 99 percent sure that one man, Oswald, acted alone. He NEVER gives a reason for why Oswald did it…which to me proves that King is way off the mark. On the other hand, his wife thinks it was all a conspiracy, so at least there is one person in the family who thinks about what they read.

While I admire King as a hell of a writer, I don’t trust his instincts. Like many liberals, he is well-meaning. After reading perhaps almost as many books as King has on the subject, I came to the conclusion that LBJ had a hand in it. Nobody Thinks—as in the Benghazi murders, only a President could have stopped that attack, and only a Vice President could orchestrate a presidential takeover.

And why didn’t Stephen King give some kind of explanation FOR Oswald’s motive? That’s the problem with liberals, they never back up their thoughts with any kind of logic. They just say they ‘thought’ about it, and what they say should be the final word. It’s annoying.

From this video we feel, and instinct tells us, that the trillions of dollars that went missing from the pentagon might have tied into 9/11. I remember seeing Bill Clinton’s face that day, and what I saw on that face, was…guilt. I had seen his guilty face before on too many testimonial occasions. Sure, Bill missed getting Bin Laden about 6 times, but it was more than that. And years have proven, the Bush’s and the Clinton’s’ have always been good friends.

Today, I was reading about how much the Saudi’s were involved in 9/11 …..and then there’s this: There was a man named Turki.

“Who resigned as head of Saudi intelligence just days before the September 11 terrorist attacks. The closest of the princes to the Taliban Attended Georgetown University with Bill Clinton.”

Yesterday I read about how Daddy Bush (who is now it seems on his death-bed) hung around the Saudi Kings…a lot. He liked to lounge on their yachts.

When it comes to conspiracy theories, we are told to behave, and always use the simplest explanation…but somehow the simple explantions that are given to us, NEVER includes powerful men wanting money and power. The biggest difference between conservatives and liberals….is we don’t trust powererful men…THEY do.

Will there be another 9/11? Nobody thinks: When the money goes missing…….somebody will come out and say…

“We just don’t know where it went.”

Right. And I have NO clue where I put my frying pan.

Poor Obama…Has to ‘Work’ 4 more years…

Nobody’s Perfect

It’s a “cliff-hanger” of suspense…If ‘President’ Obama and the Congress don’t make a deal in the next couple of days…I’ll have to sell my old drum set, and my grandfather’s old watch,  and Timmy Geither will just have to move to Switzerland.  But gee…what’s a President to do? He won the election, booked a 3 week vacation in Hawaii…and now he has to fly back Washington D.C. to “talk” again to the same people who he didn’t want to talk to in the first place.

How unfair is that?obama in Hawaii

First, we heard he was coming in Wednesday morning. THEN..it got updated to Thursday afternoon. THEN it go moved to more like Thursday night. Michelle wasn’t about to cancel her fun, so, will Obama come here for a Photo-op and go back out to Hawaii?

And how much will that cost us?

Or will he just bring his golf buddies back with him and take Air Force One down to Cancun?

It’s just so annoying to have your vacation interrupted by the Nation’s business. BUT..there IS a solution, and I’m so glad Nobody thought of it. Because it’s not being reported that the Obama’s have bought a house for $40 million dollars in Hawaii. I’m sure they have got a lot to do…especially hiding the fact that they are part of the 1% they keep talking about.Obama's Mantion

Barack and Michelle have just purchase an estate in close proximity to land owned by the University of Hawaii, where the Obama presidential library and “political center” will be located. The estate is valued at $40 million. There’s a movie theater in the mansion and it already is set up to play ALL of Obama’s speeches over the last 20 years – in a continuous loop. ”It was fun while it lasted”, Miss Marion is quoted by Chicagoans as saying, “but wait until you see the place they’re buying for Michelle and Barack!”Obama's Mama

What we need to do, is get Obama…”THE BEAM,” and it’s a steal at $16,000. It walks, it talks, it connects, and it will save the taxpayers BILLIONS…no make that TRILLIONS of dollars. All it will need is one body guard to take it up and down stairs.

Take it from a boss who loves it!

Palo Alto, Calif.–Engineer Dallas Goecker attends meetings, jokes with colleague and roams the office building just like other employees at this company in Silicon Valley. But Goecker isn’t in California, he’s more than 2,300 miles away, working at home in Seymour, Indiana. It’s all made possible by Beam…a mobile video-conferencing machine that he can drive around his company’s offices and workshops in Palo Alto. The five–foot-tall device, topped with a large video screen, gives him a presence that makes him and his colleagues feel like he’s actually there.

Think of the GAS he is saving! Think of all the plane tickets he won’t have to buy! Think of the fact that he can’t touch his secretary in all the right places!Japanese work robots

I think the Republicans would LOVE it. They might like talking to a robotic screen so much, all kinds of deals would get done. In fact, I say we send them all one, and let them stay home in their districts, where they might have to actually SEE the damage they are doing to the country.

Or they could ALL move to Hawaii!

Software engineer Josh Faust beams in daily from Hawaii, where he moved to surf, and plans to spend the winter hitting the slopes in Lake Tahoe. He can’t play ping-pong or eat the free, catered lunches in Palo Alto, but he otherwise feels like he’s part of the team.

So, there you go. I think it would work. Beam them in. Let Obama go back to Hawaii and stay there…and you know what? He won’t need Air Force One anymore. Park that gas-guzzling sucker Mr. “President” in D.C.

You would save so much money, that we could expand welfare, and nobody would have to work, ever again. Use it to give free Airplane rides to Hawaii to visit your house!

After all…we paid for it. Obama's living roome

If ONLY We Could Make Bo President

Nobody Flashes

I just found out a few minutes ago that my liberal friend, JR, has advanced prostate cancer. He is over 70, and I don’t think he realizes yet that he may not get the chemo he needs due to Obamacare, and like all of us, we tend to take our lives for granted until we know death is certain. He loves life, and my heart is very sad for him right now.

JR sent me this video today. It will warm your heart….JR loves animals. I’ve seen my own dogs do this many times.

And then, we have BO the famous dog in the White House, who seems to be alone here…and it’s too bad we can’t keep it that way. Would having a Mascot for President be an improvement?

Ahh…..Yep.

Enjoy.

(Thanks again to JR..and hang in there buddy)

Obama is coming for your Eggnog

“The president of the United States is also on an economically stimulating spending spree, and he’s paying for it with a lien on all the future job and business opportunities that your children will have. This means they won’t have them. I hope that your kids, once they’ve gotten their MBAs, enjoy stocking shelves at the Dollar Store. ”  –P.J. O’Rourke, Don’t Vote It Just Encourages the Bastards.

Nobody’s Opinion

I don’t know about you, but it’s hard to come back to reality after Christmas.  We had a month of Hallmark Christmas specials, and more than the usual Christmas cheer in the Malls. This year, Christmas was NOT a dirty word. After the election, half the country went into a stupor of –“Please…let us celebrate something!” And they did. Christmas is just what everybody needed.

Still, there are many families that did not have the usual fun and frolic: Those in homeless shelters, and this guy. Watch this video…it is proof that nothing is going right in Dodge. This man is incredibly intelligent, and honest…kind, sensible…and he’s in a shelter. (Thanks to amfortas for video)

He WANTS to work. I’m sure he could collect welfare, but he wants to work. This is too sad.

Imagine..having three degrees, and you can’t find a job. And to add absurdity on to the top of it, we hear Obama pushing for college education for everyone who wants it every chance he gets. He wants a nation filled with people with degrees…. Why? To keep the liberal university professors working?

So–How do we keep the optimism going in the year ahead? Do we wait with breathless anticipation to find out if we all have to pay MORE taxes next year? Obama is determined to tax the rich. He will never relent. He won’t stop spending….and he will blame the Republicans for the money that will be taken out of the paychecks of those that work…as if the 45 percent that DO work aren’t paying enough.

Nobody is suspicious. If you listen to the experts, 2013 will be the worst in our history…which will give the number 13 all the credit that it is due.

Nobody Wants to look back on these past four years…and there’s certainly not much to look forward to..except the good news: Families will become stronger next year…out of sheer necessity. You never know when that uncle you didn’t get along with, just might give you a job.

But hey…Let’s not think about that…Obama will be coming in from Hawaii to make a speech!Obama smug

And speaking of Obama…Adam Smith was talking about him a long time ago. …..tell me if this doesn’t just FIT him perfect.

The man of system…is apt to be very wise in his own conceit: and is often so enamored with the supposed beauty of his own ideal plan of government, that he cannot suffer the smallest deviation from any part of it. —Adam Smith

Yep. Hold on to your wallets compadres…Obama IS the system. Hide the eggnog.

“Permit them to Come Unto Me”

Nobody’s Opinion

It’s Christmas Eve, and this is not the day to talk about politics, it’s a day to tell the ones we love, just HOW much they mean to us…to go to a church, even if you usually don’t, and to think of Jesus, and his teachings…whether you think he was the son of God or not.

I’m taking  today and tomorrow off…Of COURSE! Like everyone…I can’t wait to spend time with my little family.

You know, I think God wanted me to post this little poem: I am in the process of doing an inventory of all my books, and I came upon this poem just by sheer accident today. It made me think of all the babies that have died before their time, (like the ones in Newtown, and my dear friend Doug Powers who lost his own dear angel so long ago) and all the parent’s who love their children, how their love never dies.

It also is a great example for men…Jesus picks up the child and puts them on his lap. As amfortas has told us, nowadays a man, who is not the father of a young child, would probably be ostracized harshly for putting a child on his lap, unless he was pretending to be Santa Claus.

But the main reason I love this poem, is it shows the REAL point of Christ: The mother took her “heavy heart” and it was lifted. And so, this is the true miracle of faith. If you have faith in a power higher than yourself, life, and it’s hardships, are much easier to bear. Really, it’s a no-brainer.

So, Nobody Says—May You all have a Merry Christmas! God bless us all…and Tiny Tim too!

Christ and the Little OnesJesus and children

“The Master has come over Jordan.” Said Hannah the mother one day:

“He is healing the people who throng Him, with a touch of His finger they say.

“And now I shall carry the children, Little Rachel and Samuel and John,

I shall carry the baby Esther, For the Lord to look upon.”

The father looked at her kindly, but he shook his head and smiled:

“Now who but a doting mother would think of a thing so wild?”

“If the children were tortured by demons, or dying of fever, ’twere well:

Or had they the taint of the leper, like many in Israel.”

“Nay, do not hinder me, Nathan, I feel such a burden of care; If I carry it to the Master,

Perhaps I shall leave it there.

“If He lay His hand on the children, my heart will be lighter, I know.

For a blessing for ever and ever, will follow them as they go.”

So over the hills of Judah, Along by the vine rows green,

With Esther asleep on on her bosom, and Rachel her brothers between:

‘Mid the people who hung on HIs teaching, or waited His touch and His word,

Through the row of proud Pharisees listening she pressed to the feet of the Lord.

“Now why shouldst thou hinder the Master,” Said Peter, “with children like these?”Jesus in manger

Seest not how from morning to evening He teacheth and healeth disease?”

Then Christ said “Forbid not the children, permit them to come unto me!”

And HE took in HIs arms little Esther, and Rachel He sat on His knee:

And the heavy heart of the mother was lifted all earth care above,

as HE laid His hand on the brothers, and blest them with holiest love.

As He said of the babes in His bosom, “Of such are the Kingdom of Heaven”–

And strength for all duty, and trial that hour to her spirit was given.

Nobody’s Email: Don’t Feed the Bears…

Nobody Gets Email

(From Pattie)
The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S.Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing this year, the greatest amount of free Meals and Food Stamps ever, to 46 million people. Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us “Please Do Not Feed the Animals.” Their stated reason for the policy is because “The animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves.”This ends today’s lesson in irony.
Which reminds me…
The other day while I was waiting in line at the Post office, I struck up a converstaion with the woman in front of me. I found out that she had moved down here from Chicago, and that she was worried about getting a job. She had been on unemployment for two whole years, and was having trouble finding one becasue she wasn’t familiar with computor programs.bear
“You can get free lessons at the library.” I told her.
But, she really didn’t WANT a job. What she really wanted was to keep getting unemployment until she got to retirement age, which in her case was three years away. SO…in her mind, the govenment should support her until she retired.
And I remember thinking, and so this is why he got elected….when you feed the bears…they come back for more.
Something tells me, that lady will get her wish.

Nobody’s Email: The Story of Rudolph

Nobody Gets Email:

Who made up the story of Rudolp the Rednose Raindeer? This story…about making a miracle out of hardship, is worth the read. (And I have NO idea if it’s true or not: I just like it. )
ENJOY!
(Thanks to Pattie)
*****
A man named Bob May, depressed and brokenhearted, stared out his drafty apartment window into the chilling December night.Rudolp
His 4-year-old daughter Barbara sat on his lap quietly sobbing. Bob’s wife, Evelyn, was dying of cancer.
Little Barbara couldn’t understand why her mommy could never come home. Barbara looked up into her dad’s eyes and asked, “Why isn’t Mommy just like everybody else’s Mommy?”
 *****
Bob’s jaw tightened and his eyes welled with tears. Her question brought waves of grief, but also of anger.
 *****
It had been the story of Bob’s life. Life always had to be different for Bob. Small when he was a kid, Bob was often bullied by other boys. He was too little at the time to compete in sports. He was often called names he’d rather not remember. From childhood, Bob was different and never seemed to fit in.
 *****
Bob did complete college, married his loving wife and was grateful to get his job as a copywriter at MontgomeryWards during the Great Depression.
 *****
Then he was blessed with his little girl. But it was all short-lived. Evelyn’s bout with cancer stripped them of all their savings and now Bob and his daughter were forced to live in a two-room apartment in the Chicago slums. Evelyn died just days before Christmas in 1938.
*****
Bob struggled to give hope to his child, for whom he couldn’t even afford to buy a Christmas gift. But if he couldn’t buy a gift, he was determined to make one – a storybook!
 *****
Bob had created an animal character in his own mind and told the animal’s story to little Barbara to give her comfort and hope. Again and again Bob told the story,embellishing it more with each telling.
 *****
Who was the character? What was the story all about?
 *****
The story Bob May created was his own autobiography in fable form. The character he created was a misfit outcast like he was. The name of the character? A little reindeer named Rudolph, with a big shiny nose.
 *****
Bob finished the book just in time to give it to his little girl on Christmas Day.
 *****
But the story doesn’t end there. The general manager of Montgomery Ward caught wind of the little storybook and offered Bob May a nominal fee to purchase the rights to print the book.
 *****
Wards went on to print,Rudolph, the Red-NosedReindeer and distribute it to children visiting Santa Claus in their stores.
 *****
By 1946 Wards had printed and distributed more than six million copies of Rudolph. That same year, a major publisher wanted to purchase the rights from Wards to print an updated version of the book. In an unprecedented gesture of kindness, the CEO of Wards returned all rights back to Bob May.
 *****
The book became a best seller. Many toy and marketing deals followed and Bob May, now remarried with agrowing family, became wealthy from the story he created to comfort his grieving daughter. But the story doesn’t end there either.
*****
Bob’s brother-in-law, Johnny Marks, made a song adaptation to Rudolph. Though the song was turned down by such popular vocalists as Bing Crosby and DinahShore , it was recorded by the singing cowboy, Gene Autry. “Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer” was released in 1949 and became a phenomenal success, selling more records than any other Christmas song, with the exception of “White Christmas.”

The gift of love that Bob May created for his daughter so long ago kept on returning back to bless him again and again. And Bob May learned the lesson, just like his dear friend Rudolph, that being different isn’t so bad. In fact, being different can be a blessing.

Nobody’s Email: Google 2012 Christmas Message

Nobody Gets Email

I got this video from my liberal friend, who I met at my local library about five years ago. We both were taking a class in EXCEL, and became fast friends because, when it came to computers, we both we in wonderment…like little kids.

We STILL hold that same childlike attitude about many things. Anyway, when he sent me this video he said, “How do they think up these things?”

That’s my bud. JR is in his 70’s, and yet, still holds his love of learning, and that’s one of the reasons we get along. While our politics are completely opposite, neither one of us has ever gotten mad at our opinions.

Hatred, gets you…nowhere.

(Thanks to J.R.)
