Ran across this story on my wanderings. Does it seem to you that the world is taking itself much to seriously? There are no racial slurs in the comment, no denegration of a country, no allusions to lineage or anything else. There are multiple races, religions and ethnicities in Africa. She doesn’t pick one out for special consideration. Yet the girl gets raked over the coals and booted off the team.

Paersonally I think she has a perfect sense of humor!

Jesse Jackson in Colorado

In the wake of the shootings in Coloarado all kinds of flotsam is washing up on the shores.

Will someone please tell me why Jesse Jackson shows up all over the country, in the wake of every tragedy? He doesn’t DO anything, he doesn’t ACCOMPLISH anything, he doesn’t AID anything, yet there he is!

Talk about am Ambulance Chaser. He gives lawyers a bad name!

God I Love My Friends

I have the best friends! They keep me smiling with their missives. Like this………….

Little Akio

The teacher said, “Let’s begin by reviewing some American History. Who said ‘Give me Liberty , or give me Death’?”
She saw a sea of blank faces, except for Little Akio, a bright foreign exchange student from Japan , who had his hand up: “Patrick Henry, 1775,” he said.
“Very good! — Who said, ‘Government of the People, by the People, for the People, shall not perish from the Earth’?”
Again, no response except from Little Akio: “Abraham Lincoln, 1863.”
“Excellent!” said the teacher continuing, “Let’s try one a bit more difficult — Who said, ‘Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country’?”
Once again, Akio’s was the only hand in the air and he said: “John F. Kennedy, 1961.”
The teacher snapped at the class, “Class, you should be ashamed of yourselves, Little Akio isn’t from this country and he knows more about our history than you do.”
She heard a loud whisper: “F_ _ k the Japs.”
“Who said that? — I want to know right now!? she angrily demanded.
Little Akio put his hand up, “General MacArthur, 1945.”
At that point, a student in the back said, “I’m gonna puke.’  The teacher glares around and asks, ‘All right! — Now who said that?”
Again, Little Akio says, “George Bush to the Japanese Prime Minister, 1991.”
Now furious, another student yells, “Oh yeah? — Suck this!”
Little Akio jumps out of his chair waving his hand and shouts to the teacher, “Bill Clinton, to Monica Lewinsky, 1997!”
Now with almost mob hysteria someone said, “You little shit! — If you say anything else — I’ll kill you!” Little Akio frantically yells at the top of his voice, “Michael Jackson to the children testifying against him, 2004.”
The teacher fainted. As the class gathered around the teacher on the floor, someone said, “Oh shit, We’re screwed!”
Little Akio said quietly, “The American people, November 4, 2008.”
