Nobody’s Email: The Purpose of the DOT

Nobody Gets Email

It’s hard to believe that we can’t tell these kind of ‘racist’ jokes anymore. It may be racist…but it’s funny! Like many good jokes, it helps if there is a bit of truth to it.

(Thanks to my liberal friend, JR)


The Dot —-FINALLY, SOMEONE HAS CLEARED THIS UP.

*******************dot
For centuries, Hindu women have worn a dot on their foreheads. Most of us have naively thought this was connected with tradition or religion, but the Indian embassy in Ottawa has recently revealed the true story.
 
When a Hindu woman gets married, she brings a dowry into the union. On her wedding night, the husband scratches off the dot to see whether he has won a convenience store, a gas station, a doughnut shop, a taxi cab, or a motel in the United States.
 
If nothing is there, he must remain in India to answer telephones and provide us with Verizon technical support.

Get Up OFF of THAT THING…Because God Tells You To— Idiot.

Nobody Cares

Wow. I HAVE been in a funk lately. This week I tore a hole in Rush Limbaugh, Obama, Glenn Beck, and let’s not forget the Pope. Okay. You could blame it on the weather. It’s been flooding here, and I have not been able to swim FOR A WHOLE WEEK! Doesn’t God realized that I wait the whole winter just for the moment when I can go swimming in his glorious sunshine? WTF is it with all this rain?

Is Moscow controlling our weather?

Okay. I can’t complain about God. While I wish understandably that I would win the Powerball so that I could buy my OWN pool, heated, ever ready, God always just sends me what he thinks I need. For instance….One Christmas I really needed exactly $1500.00. Part of that would go to Christmas presents for my son, part of it for medical expenses. And sure enough, God came through. While trying to get on the highway one day, one of those massive tractor trucks came zooming around the corner at about 50 MPH, and I was NOT about to get in front of that baby, so I stopped.

The lady behind me who was accelerating to get on the highway, ran right into the back of me. I’m sorry…I had to pick the lesser of the two evils…death by a 50-ton truck, or a fender bender. But hey! As I told her, “Last time I looked, in Missouri, if someone hits you from behind it’s THEIR fault.” (You can imagine how she reacted to that statement)

I love it. The damage to my car was so minor, I didn’t even fix it. BUT…her insurance paid me a nice check of…you guessed it EXACTLY $1500.00.crazy

Thank you God.

And you all know I sometimes get carried away with my own gloom. I blame this on my mother, who woke up every single morning...depressed about the world. Talk about the cup half empty…to my mother there WAS no cup. She was pouring acid water filled with the dead souls of a million dead bumper baby regrets down a black hole, every single day.  I’m surprised I even survived my childhood. To be fair, it wasn’t her fault. She had genetically inherited this gloom from her ancestors…and passed it on to me, and I’ve given it to my son.

Truly, it wasn’t our fault.

It’s a good think John and John Quincy had good jobs, THEIR sons did not even find a cup to climb into. And in that respect, I’ve been lucky. God has always thrown me a line.

I was getting so down after this last incident in Charleston, that I just had to get out today. So I put on my windbreaker, my worst tennis shoes, and sloshed through the rain. I had been trying to figure out how to get myself out of this funk, and then I read in a book that you must soar above yourself and see what’s ticks you off…to recognizes your ‘push’ buttons…

Hey—have you listened to the news lately? OMG. Give me a cup to THROW at somebodies head! My buttons are pushed out. Do NOT reset them.

But…God came through just in time today: For some damn reason, on the bookshelf at my local library was a P.J. O’Rourke book: One dollar. What a bargain. And reading upon this, as I stood dripping from the rain… I came to this passage:

Consider it a God moment—if you please…humor me.

Let us, for the space of this book, quit worrying and go take a look at what we are worrying about. And let us take a look not only at the worry but at the place where the worry is happening, the context within which the worry occurs, and the people who are doing the worrisome thing or having done it to them. And let us keep in mind about these people that, whatever their language, culture, or religion, whatever peculiar thing they are wearing through their nose, whatever caliber item they have pointed at our head, they are people , too. They are just as dumb, stinky, and ridiculous as we are.

And worry itself is fairly pointless. Worrying is a futuristic matter. About that future, Sydney Smith said almost two centuries ago, “We know nothing of tomorrow: our business is to be good and happy today.” To worry is an act of sublime ignorance. However, we can guess a few truths on the subject. One is that the usual solutions proffered for the usual worries are usually wrong.

I love it when God talks to me. Combine this with the movie I just watched about James Brown, and he is downright being the God he always turns out to be. He gives me just what I need, when I need it.

And so, picture if you can…ME. Dancing and singing..”Get up off of that thing, Dance and you’ll feel better.”

And I did. And I DO! Maybe God wants me to make this a morning ritual. (Ya think?)

God bless James Brown, P.J.O’Rourke, and whatever power in the universe who keeps…filling my cup up when I just run out of gas.

Tell me he doesn’t exist, and I’ll show you WHY you should never mess with a hummingbird.

Enjoy!

Who Came First? The Criminal or the Law Abiding Citizen?

 

Nobody Remembers

Evil. It comes in many faces: We are seeing the face of pure evil today on our TV screens…a young man, pumped up with drugs, decided to go on a rage and kill some people, because he was a racist.  It doesn’t matter what you call it, when another human being decides to kill someone else, for whatever reasons, and there ARE many, the rest of society feels vulnerable.  And this will continue to happen as long as there are people walking the planet.

As I watched our great “Black Leader” today, go on about how guns are the problem in America, (remember it’s not the gun’s fault) I kept thinking…consider the source: This is a man who singlehandedly has made SURE that millions of Muslim radicals (Among them Hamas, ISIS, Al-Qaeda) were well armed with the best weapons in the world, for which to kill us with.

(Read Judge Napolitano’s piece here on that–great piece)

And, remember when Obama traded hard-core terrorist for one American trader? They have now gone back into battle and are killing Christians, and Americans. Obama deals in arms on a global scale. He GIVES away billions to other countries, and we pay for it.

So you might say…so what? That’s not here. That’s war. Okay. Fair enough.Obama jobs

But how safe do you feel at home?

One of the things Trump has mentioned is that Mexico and South America are sending us their criminals. They come here, murder, rape, steal…they are put in jail, and then released, and you don’t hear it reported because…they are not allowed to report illegals as illegals!

Great! …and here’s the kicker…on direct orders from Obama they are being released.

He just can’t stand anybody being in prison.

Newsflash:

Katie Pavlich tweeted this:

ICE Director Saldana: Nobody has been fired for releasing 65,000+ criminal aliens with rape, murder charges into American communities.

********

PHOENIX — Nearly 5,000 Arizona immigrant detainees with criminal records were released from custody, a federal agency has acknowledged. Of those, 121 later committed fatal crimes.

Yes, The other countries are dumping their criminals into ours. And last week, I wrote about the first time America got the criminal dumping,  from England.

This week…I found more just by chance…so: How did the people of America feel about England dumping HER criminals here way back then?Sam Adams motto

From A History of the American People:

By the third quarter of the 18th century, America already had a society which was predominantly middle class.

In 1717, Britain began transporting convicts to the American mainland, for seven years as a rule, and it worked less will far less well than it later did in Australia. This was subsidized by the British state, which wanted to get rid of the rouges, but was also a private business tied to the shipping trade. The convicts left Britain in the spring, landed in Philadelphia or the Chesapeake in the summer, and the ships which transported them returned in the autumn loaded with tobacco, corn, and wheat. In half a century 1717-67, 10,000 serious criminals were dumped on Maryland alone. They were much more troublesome than non-criminal indentured labor, always complaining of abuses and demanding “rights.” People hated and feared them. May were alcoholics or suicidal. Others had missing ears and fingers or gruesome scars. One convict went mad in 1751 and attacked his mater’s children with an axe: another cut off his hand rather than work. From Virginia, William Byrd II wrote loftily to an English friend: “I wish you would be so kind as to hang all your felons at home.” There were public demands that a head tax be imposed in each convict landed or that purchases be forced to post bonds for their good behavior. But the British authorities’ would never have allowed this. As a result of the convict influx we hear for the first time in America widespread complaints that crime was increasing and that standards of behavior had deteriorated. All this was blamed on Britain.

I emphasized that last part to compare to today.

Ann Coulter, Pat Buchanan, and Donald Trump are expressing the same feelings when they say that we are being turned into a third world country…and who’s helping this along?

Obama. He is overwhelming our system on purpose. A lesson from his master, Alinsky.

Which is why we need cops, and the 2nd amendment, and the rule of law, and most importantly, a President who isn’t out to use his power to destroy the country
