Thursday Funnies: The Preacher, the Carpenter, and the Mother-In-Law

donkey

The Preacher

A preacher went to his church office on Monday morning and discovered a dead mule in the church yard.

He called the police.

Since there did not appear to be any foul play, the police referred the preacher to the health department. They said since there was no health threat that he should call the sanitation department. The sanitation manager said he could not pick up the mule without authorization from the mayor.

Now the preacher knew the mayor and was not to eager to call him because the mayor had a bad temper and was generally hard to deal with.

But the preacher called him anyway.

The mayor did not disappoint. He immediately began to rant and rave at the pastor and finally said, “Why did you call me anyway? Isn’t it your job to bury the dead?”

The preacher paused for a brief prayer and asked the Lord to direct his response.

He was led to say, “Yes, Mayor, it is my job to bury the dead, but I always like to notify the next of kin first!”

The Carpenter

An apprentice carpenter is building a house, so he asks his cousin for some help.

The carpenter is watching his cousin put up siding and notices that he keeps throwing nails away:  the cousin would pound two nails then throw away a few, pound a couple more, then throw away a few more.

The carpenter says “Hey, cousin, why are ya throwin’ my nails away?”

Cousin: “Cause they’re pointing the wrong way.”

Carpenter: “No cousin, those are for the other side of the house.”

The Mother-In-Law

A Bible study group was discussing the unforeseen possibility of their sudden death.

The leader of the discussion said, “We will all die some day, and none of us really knows when, but if we did we would all do a better job of preparing ourselves for that inevitable event.” Everybody nodded their heads in agreement with this comment.

Then the leader said to the group, “What would you do if you knew you only had four weeks of life remaining before your death, and then the Great Judgment Day?”

One gentleman said, “I would go out into my community and minister the Gospel to those that have not yet accepted the Lord into their lives.” “Very good,” said the group leader, and all the group members agreed that would be a very good thing to do.

One lady spoke up and said enthusiastically, “I would dedicate all of my remaining time to serving God, my family, my church, and my fellow man with a greater conviction.” “That’s wonderful!” the group leader commented, and all the group members agreed that would be a very good thing to do.

But one gentleman in the back finally spoke up loudly and said, “I would go to my mother-in-law’s house for the four weeks.”

Everyone was puzzled by this answer, and the group leader asked, “Why your mother-in-law’s home?”

Then the gentleman smiled sarcastically and said, “Because, that would be the longest 4 weeks of my life!”

Now it’s Wisconsin: Blacks leave rally before Obama finishes speaking

It happened again.

People are walking out while President Ebola is still speaking.

On Oct. 19, 2014, at a Democratic campaign rally in Upper Marlboro in eastern Maryland for Anthony G. Brown, the state’s Obama-lookalike lieutenant governor who’s running for governor, in the midst of Obama’s 25-minute speech, members of his mainly black audience left in droves. (See “Mainly black crowd walks out on Obama at Democratic campaign rally”)

9 days later on Oct. 28, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, they did it again. — at a rally in North Division High School for Democrat Mary Burke, who’s running for governor.

Daniel Halper reports for The Weekly Standard that as Obama was still speaking, telling the mainly black crowd they can vote even without a photo ID (wink, wink), the crowd began to file out.

Mike Lowe, a political reporter, tweeted: “Some people –not a lot, but some — are leaving as the President is speaking.”

Mike Lowe tweet

Here’s a video that captures the rally-attendees leaving, even as Obama’s voice can be heard in the background:

From what I saw in the video, most, if not all, of the people leaving are black.

And yet, brown-noser Politico tweeted this:

Need any more evidence that Politico is left-leaning and should be shunned as a news source?

Disturbing Video Shows What It’s Really Like to Be Street Harassed

Cosmopolitan: No matter where you live, if you’ve ever walked around your neighborhood as a woman (or queer person) for any lengthy amount of time, you’ve been subjected to catcalls, whistles, stares, you name it.

Still, there are plenty of idiots out there who claim it’s no big deal, or that it’s not that bad, or that women are exaggerating. Obviously, those people are wrong, but sometimes it helps to show naysayers actual, real-world evidence of how pervasive street harassment is in our culture, which this video absolutely does.

It’s fairly excruciating to watch, but that’s only because it’s so realistic and all too familiar.

———————————————————————————————-

The “disturbing harassment”? “How you doing today?” “What’s up beautiful have a good day.” “God bless you mami.” “Hey baby.” “Hey beautiful!” “How are you this morning?” “Have a nice evening.” “Nice!”

Don’t like the cat calls or comments? Ignore them or tell the boys to blow off! You really think you can control the behavior of everyone on the street?

Bet a feminazi would demand the same respect even if she walked around like this.

Karma is a bitch: MSM now say Obama is a danger to press freedom

The liberal main stream media (MSM) connived to elevate Obama to the presidency in 2008 and to reelect him in 2012. Remember Journolist? (See “Media Conspired to Protect Obama“)

The MSM refused to investigate Obama’s shadowy background and history of associating with known communists, including his childhood mentor Frank Marshall Davis, who was a card-carrying member of the American Communist Party.

Having abdicated their responsibility to investigate this man who has more names and Social Security numbers than a dog has fleas, the MSM then deploy the derisive and dismissive label of “birthers” on Americans who question Obama’s constitutional birth eligibility to be president and why he continues to conceal his school, medical and other records.

Here’s just one glaring example of media bias that you’ve probably forgotten:

In 2013, the media made a BIG thing of Republican Senator Marco Rubio (Florida) taking a sip of water during his delivery of the official GOP response to Obama’s State of the Union address. As Reuters put it: “Across the Web, from Deadspin.com to The New Yorker, and on every cable news channel, the Florida senator’s sip from a small bottle of water as he delivered the official Republican response to U.S. President Barack Obama’s on Tuesday was the moment of the evening.”

And yet the media never even so much as whispered that Obama, the President of the most powerful country in the world, was so uncouth as to PICK HIS NOSE in public on live TV.

media-bias2

Now, 6 years into his presidency, more and more of the MSM are complaining about Obama’s press restrictions and lack of transparency. But not one complainer has expressed remorse for colluding to get this toxic man elected twice as president.

Here are some of those in the MSM who are bitching:

1. On May 14, 2013, New York Times public editor Margaret Sullivan wrote, “it’s turning out to be the administration of unprecedented secrecy and unprecedented attacks on a free press.”

2. In June of 2013, as news came of the Obama Justice Department’s surveillance of reporters, New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson said she was “concerned that the process of news gathering is being criminalized.” In January 2014, in an interview with Al Jazeera America, Abramson called the Obama administration “the most secretive” she has ever had to contend with.

3. In October 2013, David E. Sanger, veteran chief Washington correspondent of The New York Times, said, “This is the most closed, control freak administration I’ve ever covered.”

4. Writing in October 2013, Leonard Downie Jr. said that Michael Oreskes, a senior managing editor of The Associated Press, had told him some months ago that “The Obama administration has been extremely controlling and extremely resistant to journalistic intervention. There’s a mind-set and approach that holds journalists at a greater distance.”

5. Frank Sesno, a former CNN Washington bureau chief who is now director of the School of Media and Public Affairs at George Washington University, said the Obama administration imposes limitations on “everyday access necessary for the administration to explain itself and be held accountable.”

6. Financial Times correspondent Richard McGregor said “covering this White House is pretty miserable in terms of getting anything of substance to report on in what should be a much more open system.”

7. CBS veteran television news anchor and chief Washington correspondent Bob Schieffer said “This administration exercises more control than George W. Bush’s did, and his before that.

8. In November 2013, a large group of news organizations sent a letter to the White House protesting limited access for their photographers at newsworthy events involving the president: “The restrictions imposed by the White House on photographers covering these events, followed by the routine release by the White House of photographs made by government employees of these same events, is an arbitrary restraint and unwarranted interference on legitimate newsgathering activities. You are, in effect, replacing independent photojournalism with visual press releases.”

9. On March 10, 2014, after 21 years with the CBS network as its Washington bureau correspondent and occasional Evening News substitute anchor, Sharyl Attkisson resigned from CBS News, reportedly due to frustration over the network’s liberal bias and lack of dedication to investigative reporting.

10 . On March 21, 2014, Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times’ foreign policy reporter James Risen called the Obama administration “the greatest enemy of press freedom that we have encountered in at least a generation,” and warned that the White House seeks to control the flow of information and those who refuse to play along “will be punished.” Risen also said “I think Obama hates the press.”

11. On Oct. 3, 2014, at a recent joint meeting of the American Society of News Editors, the Associated Press Media Editors and the Associated Press Photo Managers, the Associated Press’ Washington Bureau chief Sally Buzbee detailed 8 ways the Obama administration is restricting access to information.

12. On Oct. 25, 2014, speaking at a White House Correspondents’ Association seminar, USA Today Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page called the Obama White House not only “more restrictive” but also “more dangerous” to the press than any other in history.

A Shrink And A Proctologist Walk Into A Bar….

3d-Animasi-Doctor-Duck-Walking-Animated-Animal

Best friends graduated from medical school at the same time and decided that in spite of two different specialties, they would open a practice together to share office space and personnel.

Dr. Smith was the psychiatrist and Dr. Jones was the proctologist; they put up a sign reading: Dr. Smith and Dr. Jones: Hysterias and Posteriors. The town council was livid and insisted they change it.

The docs changed it to read: Schizoids and Hemorrhoids. This was also not acceptable so they again changed the sign to read Catatonics and High Colonics – no go. Next they tried Manic Depressives and Anal Retentives – thumbs down again.

Then came Minds and Behinds – still no good. Another attempt resulted in Lost Souls and Butt Holes – unacceptable again! So they tried Nuts and Butts – no way. Freaks and Cheeks – still no good. Loons and Moons – forget it. Almost at their wit’s end, the docs finally came up with:

Dr. Smith and Dr. Jones – Specializing in Odds and Ends.

Everybody loved it.

Popular Muslim media personality says Jesus will convert the world to Islam

Christ with angels

Jesus is a Muslim! Who knew? LOL

Adnan Oktar is the host of a popular TV show in Turkey; a prolific author; and a Sunni Muslim.

Leo Hohmann reports for WND, Oct. 27, 2014, that in a new documentary, “End Times Eyewitness,” Oktar says the Muslim world is eagerly anticipating the end days when their messiah, the Mahdi, as well as Jesus will come.

Jesus, whom Muslims call “Isa,” is not the messiah. Instead, Jesus is a Muslim. Not only is Jesus a Muslim, Jesus was never crucified nor resurrected from the dead.

Adnan Oktar

Adnan Oktar

And to top it off, Oktar says Jesus will soon return to Earth to convert the whole world to Islam! And this Muslim Jesus will be very persuasive.

The documentary is produced by WND Films and directed by a bible teacher and author of The Islamic Antichrist and Mideast Beast.

Oktar also says:

  • A group of supernatural beings made of fire called the djinn, from which we get the English word for “genie,” will assist Jesus and the Mahdi to convert the world to Islam.
  • However, there are bad djinn and good djinn. The latter are Muslim djinn, whose leader is the Mahdi. Only the good Muslim djinn will assist in converting the whole world to Islam.
  • According to Hijri calendar, the Mahdi (and the Muslim Jesus) will appear sometime between the years 1400 and 1500. Since the current Islamic year is 1435, the Mahdi and Muslim Jesus are likely already walking the earth! — in Istanbul! Oktar says, “Yes. We believe that Hazrat Mahdi has come and is busy carrying on his activities. We believe that he appeared in Istanbul, as that is how it is related in the Judaic accounts. This is how it is related in the Islamic accounts as well.”
  • The Mahdi will rule for seven years.
  • Oktar believes that he has the ability to communicate with the djinn (hopefully only the good Muslim djinn), and that they respect him and give him information.

Richardson points out that Oktar’s TV show is watched not just in Turkey, but throughout Central Asia, the Arab world and parts of Russia and Eastern Europe, Oktar has a close relationship with Turkey’s president and former prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who listens to and follows Oktar’s advice.

This is the same Erdoğan who saidThere is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it.”

Turkey, which is a NATO ally, has already proved to be a growing thorn in the side of U.S. policy in the Middle East, refusing the use of its airbases for bombing raids against ISIS terrorists and providing safe haven for the militants. It has also been purchasing oil from ISIS-controlled oil wells, flooding the terrorist army with fresh cash.

In the documentary, Richardson says a coalition of Middle Eastern nations will invade Israel, and that Turkey is emerging as the dominant power in the Middle East and is positioning for a showdown with other powers, most notably Iran and Egypt. “The whole goal of the Turkish neo-Ottoman government is to rule the Middle East and the Islamic caliphate,” Richardson said.

Richardson believes Washington is still working with a foreign policy that is “based on a 10-year-old model” in which Turkey is seen as the moderate Muslim state that U.S. leaders would like to see replicated across the Middle East. “You still hear Joe Biden talk about how Erdoğan is his buddy and how they go way back together and he’s such a great friend,” Richardson said.

Richardson also says the Obama administration is “probably just putting on a little bit of a show,” with its limited bombing of ISIS targets in Iraq, and that “ISIS really is Turkey’s proxy in the Middle East,” supported financially and supplied by the Turkish Islamic government” in “a wider war against the Kurds, against Bashar Assad in Syria and against Iran. Richardson points out Turkey “refused the U.S. to use their soil for bombing raids against ISIS in Kobani, they allowed a lot of the refugees to flee into Turkey, but they would not allow them to go back and fight ISIS.”

Richardson believes Iran will eventually be drawn into Iraq to stop ISIS, especially if ISIS threatens the shrines or mosques in Iraq that are considered holy to Iran’s Shiite Muslim population. “If ISIS takes sacred cities in Iraq whether it’s Baghdad or Samara or Najaf, the Iranians are not going to let that happen and destroy those shrines and mosques…. I would expect even a year from now we could be in a very different situation. Iran already controls southern Iraq but within a year I would say their presence in Iraq could be far more overt.”

How America’s schools handled firearms in 1956

1956 firearms in the classroom

That was 58 years ago.

Now, if a kid even holds his hand like shooting a gun, or bites a cookie into the shape of a gun, or talks about guns, or wears an NRA t-shirt, or brings a souvenir shell-casing to school, or twirls a pencil, or plays with a toy gun in his home, he is sent to the principal’s office and could be expelled from school.
