Noah’s Problems…

noahs-ark

In the year 2016, the Lord came unto Noah, Who was now living in America and said: “Once again, the earth has become wicked and over-populated, and I see the end of all flesh before me. Build another ark and save 2 of every living thing Along with a few good  humans.”

He gave Noah the blueprints, saying: “You have 6 months to build the ark before I will Start the unending rain for 40 days and 40 nights.”

Six months later, the Lord looked down and saw Noah weeping in his yard – but no ark. “Noah!,” He roared, “I’m about to start the rain! Where is the ark?”

“Forgive me, Lord,” begged Noah, “but things have changed.”

“I needed a building permit.”

“I’ve been arguing with the boat inspector about the need for a sprinkler system.”

“My neighbors claim that I’ve violated the neighborhood by-laws by building the ark in my backyard and exceeding the height limitations. We had to go to the local Planning Committee for a decision.”

“Then the local Council and the electric company demanded a shed load of money for the future costs of moving power lines and other overhead obstructions, to clear the passage for the ark’s move to the sea. I told them that the sea would be coming to us, but they would hear none of it.”

“Getting the wood was another problem. There’s a ban on cutting local trees in order to save the Greater Spotted Barn Owl. I tried to convince the environmentalists that I needed the wood to save the owls – but no go!”

“When I started gathering the animals the ASPCA took me to court. They insisted that I was confining wild animals against their will. They argued the accommodations were too restrictive and it was cruel and inhumane to put so many animals in a confined space.”

“Then the Environmental Protection Agency ruled that I couldn’t build the ark until they’d conducted an environmental impact study on your proposed flood.”

“I’m still trying to resolve a complaint with the Human Rights Commission on how many minorities I’msupposed to hire for my building crew.”

“The Immigration Dept. Is checking the visa status of most of the people who want to work.”

“The trade unions say I can’t use my sons. They insist I have to hire only Union workers with ark-building experience.”

To make matters worse, the IRS seized all my assets, claiming I’m trying to leave the country illegally with endangered species.”

“So, forgive me, Lord, but it would take at least 10 years for me to finish this ark.”

“Suddenly the skies cleared, the sun began to shine, and a rainbow stretched across the sky.”

Noah looked up in wonder and asked, “You mean you’re not going to destroy the world?”

“No,” said the Lord. “The Government beat me to it.”

‘I hate my life now’: Parents reveal why they REGRET having children

parents-regret

From Daily Mail: Mothers have been taking to social media to reveal what it really feels like to regret having children. Posting anonymously on sites like Facebook, Reddit and Quora, the disgruntled women have made startling confessions describing parenthood as ‘drudgery and monotony’.

Citing reasons from sleep deprivation to financial security – and ‘not liking kids’ – some go as far as confessing they wish their offspring had never been born.

Many have taken to the Facebook page I Regret Having Children in recent months. The group, started in July 2012 by a mother known only as ‘R’, has some 3,200 members and serves as a platform for parents to let off steam without being identified.

One anonymous member told how she was still feeling ‘intense regret’ three months after giving birth to her first child. ‘We had a great relationship before the baby, and I always felt like we could have continued the way we were,’ she said, adding that she had ‘never wanted’ a child but her husband had persuaded her. ‘A few days after having the baby I felt intense regret, and it hasn’t gone away,’ she explained.

‘I just hate my life now, the sleep deprivation, the drudgery, the monotony, and I feel so guilty and ashamed for feeling this way. It’s not my baby’s fault, and he deserves a good mother who wants him. I am needing advice on how to deal with these feelings.’

One 30-year-old father-of-two said he felt he was ‘slipping away from everyone and everything I used to love doing’ as none of his friends were parents. ‘I made the children it’s my job to look after them and i will until the day I die,’ he wrote. ‘But I can’t can’t get the feeling out of my head that my life’s missing… Any men feel the same ?’

A heart-wrenching confession came from the mother to a two-year-old whose lack of sleep had forced her mother to miss work – before suffering a panic attack and a ‘meltdown’ where she threatened to leave her husband. ‘I do not know what to do,’ she admitted. Even when she goes back to sleep, my nerves are so shot that I lie awake and anger consumes my soul.’

The woman added: ‘I hit her yesterday and feel so guilty. I wish I never had her, she takes and takes and we are empty. We have tried letting her cry, sleeping next to her, even put a lock on her room so she would not get out. She still wakes us up.’

One woman told how she had uprooted and moved from Venezuela to the US to be with her now-husband – who was now threatening to divorce her if she didn’t give him ‘at least two kids’. She wrote: ‘I love him so much but I love myself too much to betray my life to give it to a child.’

One of the few men to comment on the page told how he had found himself with two children he never wanted and was in the process of divorcing his wife.

In a brutally honest post, he wrote: ‘I really don’t like kids and I hate having them during my weekends. I have lost my life completely, I cannot find another woman because of my baggage and the child maintenance is crippling me financially.’ He begged fellow parents for ‘coping strategies’.

A mother-of-two told of her ‘big regrets’ after ‘losing her freedom’ when she had children. The former air hostess added: ‘My mum told me not to get married and not to have kids (…) She’s right. I should have listened to her.’

Another mum spoke of the ‘pure horror’ she felt when she realised that she ‘loved this baby so much (she) would not be able to leave it ever’ – an ordeal that led to depression and, eventually, anxiety and panic attacks.

Other parents turned to Reddit for advice, with jerkstore13 making the startling admission that she ‘hadn’t slept past 6 in years’. She added: ‘I’m stuck in a place I don’t want to live in.’

Camelican said that parenting had been ‘relentlessly exhausting’, leading her to believe that she ‘wasn’t ready to stop being selfish’. She wrote: ‘I feel like having a kid closed off a lot of possibilities for me, definitely killed any semblance of spontaneity in my life.’

A mother-of-three said she ‘quite frequently’ wished she had never become a parent at all. She wrote: ‘I don’t stand a chance at doing anything significant with my life other than saying hey i raised 3 more humans.  ‘Your welcome. What an accomplishment (sic.).’

Texas to withdraw from feds’ refugee program over terror threat

texas

From Fox News: The state of Texas on Wednesday announced that it is withdrawing from the Obama administration’s refugee resettlement program due to the administration’s inability to ensure that refugees resettled in the state do not pose terror threats, according to an announcement by Republican Gov. Greg Abbott.

Texas informed the Office of Refugee Resettlement in a letter that it will be withdrawing from the program on Jan. 31, 2017. The letter comes on the heels of several weekend terror attacks across the United States

The administration has refused to approve a security plan by the state of Texas aimed at ensuring that refugees are only resettled following in-depth security checks. 

Texas officials drafted a plan that would require federal national security officials to provide assurances that none of the individuals being resettled pose a terror threat. The administration has declined to approve this plan.

Abbott said Texas would not accept a single refuge until proper security measures are put in place.

Terror attacks are ‘part and parcel of living in a big city’, claims London mayor Sadiq Khan

white-flag

From Daily Mail: The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has said that living with terror attacks – like the one that hit New York at the weekend – is ‘part and parcel of living in a big city’.

Mr. Khan told the Evening Standard: ‘It is a reality I’m afraid that London, New York, other major cities around the world have got to be prepared for these sorts of things. That means being vigilant, having a police force that is in touch with communities, it means the security services being ready, but also it means exchanging ideas and best practice.’

The dopey mayor...

The dopey mayor…

Mr. Khan, who was elected as Mayor in May to replace Boris Johnson, who is ironically now Britain’s Foreign Secretary, was in the United States on a business trip.  He said he had a ‘sleepless’ night on Saturday after a bomb exploded on West 23rd Street in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighbourhood, injuring 31 people.

Another device on 27th Street in Manhattan failed to go off and Ahmad Rahami, an Afghan-born US citizen was later arrested in New Jersey.  Mr. Rahami has been charged in relation to the New York explosion and another device that exploded harmlessly hours earlier near a race in Seaside Park, New Jersey.

After taking advice from the New York authorities it was ‘business as usual’ for Mr. Khan, who visited the 9/11 memorial and attended a New York Mets baseball game. Mr. Khan reportedly hinted that the Mets could come to London next year to play a Major League Baseball game at West Ham’s Olympic Stadium.

The other dopey mayor...

Mr. Khan later met with the Mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, as well as with Muslim community leaders, and co-wrote an editorial in the New York Times.

Mr. Khan, who was the first Muslim Mayor of a major western city when he was elected in May, Mr. de Blasio and Paris’s Mayor, Anne Hidalgo, wrote: ‘We call on world leaders to adopt a similar welcoming and collaborative spirit on behalf of the refugees all over the world. Our cities stand united in the call for inclusivity. It is part of who we are as citizens of diverse and thriving cities.’

Tragedy in Alaska…

Animals that formerly were self-sufficient are now showing signs of belonging to the Democrat Party. They have apparently learned to just sit and wait for the government to step in and provide for their care and sustenance.

This photo is of a black bear in Alaska turned Democrat. 

He’s nicknamed Bearack Obearma.

It is believed that he has become a campground organizer.

Remember: “Black Bears Matter!”
