Morning Chuckle. Or Yuckle.

cowboy

An old cowboy walks into a barbershop in Moose Jaw, Wyoming for a shave and a haircut. He tells the barber he can’t get all his whiskers off because his cheeks are wrinkled from age. The barber gets a little wooden ball from a cup on the shelf and tells the old cowboy to put it inside his cheek to spread out the skin.

When he’s finished, the old cowboy tells the barber that was the cleanest shave he’d had in years, but he wanted to know what would have happened if he had accidentally swallowed that little ball.

The barber replied, just bring it back in a couple of days like everyone else does.

G Washington

GEORGE WASHINGTON Steel-Mounted Saddle Pistols

Marquis de Lafayette, a young French soldier who volunteered to fight for the United States, gave Washington this pair of saddle pistols with barrels made of Damascus steel. Washington reportedly carried these sidearms at Valley Forge, Monmouth, Yorktown and during the Whiskey Rebellion as president. Washington maintained possession of the pistols until his death in 1799. Andrew Jackson owned them for a spell, until bequeathing them back to the Lafayette family.

Jefferson

THOMAS JEFFERSON
One of the Founding Fathers of the United States, Jefferson has many quotes that resonate strongly with the Right to Bear Arms crowd, including, “Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes . . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. – 1764″ Truer words couldn’t have been spoken.

I Really Miss This Great Man.

Life, choose wisely.

Life really boils down to 2 questions…

1. Should I get a dog…..?
OR…

2. Should I have children?

 

No matter what situations life throws at you…

No matter how long and treacherous your journey may seem..

Remember there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

You’re laughing aren’t you?
That’s good ’cause my job here is done!

Have a great day and remember to give thanks….

Albert Einstein: 10 of his best quotes

Albert Einstein’s theory about how fast the universe is expanding has been proved correct by British scientists who praised his “incredible accuracy”. He was known for words and phrases and here are 10 of his best quotes.

  1. My Uncle Al A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.
  2. Intellectuals solve problems; geniuses prevent them.
  3. Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one’s living at it.
  4. The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax.
  5. I am convinced that He (God) does not play dice.
  6. Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.
  7. I never think of the future. It comes soon enough.
  8. The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.
  9. Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.
  10. I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones

Skippy’s 2012 Campaign Poster.

Can't argue with that.

 

“Socialism is a philosophy of failure,
the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy,
its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery..”
Winston Churchill

These are possibly the 5 best sentences you’ll ever read: Unfortunately, most voters don’t know this.

1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.

2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them; and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work, because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Can you think of any reason for not sharing this?
Neither can I.

With age comes wisdom!

The guys were all at a deer camp. No one wanted to room with Bob, because he snored so badly. They decided it wasn’t fair to make one of them stay with him the whole time, so they voted to take turns.

The first guy slept with Bob and comes to breakfast the next morning with his hair a mess and his eyes all bloodshot. They said, “Man, what happened to you? He said, “Bob snored so loudly, I just sat up and watched him all night.”

The next night it was a different guy’s turn. In the morning, same thing, hair all standing up, eyes all bloodshot. They said, “Man, what happened to you? You look awful! He said, ‘Man, that Bob shakes the roof with his snoring. I watched him all night.”

The third night was Fred’s turn. Fred was a tanned, older cowboy, a man’s man. The next morning he came to breakfast bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. “Good morning!” he said.

They couldn’t believe it. “Man, what happened?” they asked.

Fred said, “Well, we got ready for bed. I went and tucked Bob into bed, patted him on the butt, and kissed him good night. Bob sat up and watched me all night.”

Breaking! Obama Reverses Stance on Israel

President Barack Obama told a meeting of the United Nations General Assembly Wednesday that Mideast peace “will not come through statements and resolutions” by the world body, arguing against a proposed resolution calling for recognition of a Palestinian state.

“Ultimately, it is Israelis and Palestinians – not us – who must reach agreement on the issues that divide them: on borders and security; on refugees and Jerusalem,” Obama said, urging the two sides “to sit down together, to listen to each other, and to understand each other’s hopes and fears.”
