History Lesson on Your Social Security Card

Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some older ones) didn’t know this. It’s easy to check out, if you don’t believe it.  Be sure and show it to your family and friends. They need a little history lesson on what’s what and it doesn’t matter whether you are Democrat or Republican. Facts are Facts.
Social Security Cards up until the 1980s expressly stated the number and card were not to be used for identification purposes. Since nearly everyone in the United States now has a number, it became convenient to use it anyway and the message, NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION, was removed.

 An old Social Security card with the “NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION” message. Our Social Security

Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program. He promised:

1.) That participation in the Program would be Completely voluntary,

No longer Voluntary

 

2.) That the participants would only have to pay
1% of the first $1,400 of their annual Incomes into the Program,

Now 7.65% on the first $90,000

 

3.) That the money the participants elected to put into the Program would be deductible from their income for tax purposes each year,

No longer tax deductible

 

4.) That the money the participants put into the independent ‘Trust Fund‘ rather than into the general operating fund, and therefore, would only be used to fund the Social Security Retirement Program, and no other Government program, and, 

Under Johnson the money was moved to The General Fund and Spent

 

5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as income.

Under Clinton & Gore Up to 85% of your Social Security can be Taxed

Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are now receiving a Social Security check every month — and then finding that we are getting taxed on 85% of the money we paid to the Federal government to ‘put away’ — you may be interested in the following:

———— ——— ——— ——— ——— ———

Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from the independent ‘Trust Fund’ and put it into the general fund so that Congress could spend it?

A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the Democratically controlled House and Senate.

———— ——— ——— ——— ——— ———

Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?

A: The Democratic Party.

———— ——— ——— ——— ——— ———

Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?

A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gore casting the ‘tie-breaking’ deciding vote as President of the Senate, while he was Vice President of the  US

———— ——— ——— ——— ——— ———

Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving annuity payments to immigrants?

AND MY FAVORITE:

A: That’s right!

Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party. Immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65, began to receive Social Security payments! The Democratic Party gave these payments to them, even though they never paid a dime into it!

———— — ———— ——— —– ————

Then, after violating the original contract (FICA), the Democrats turn around and tell you that the Republicans want to take your Social Security away!

And the worst part about it is uninformed citizens believe it! If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of awareness will be planted and maybe changes will evolve. But it’s worth a try.

How many people can YOU send this to?

Actions speak louder than bumper stickers.

One Evil Human    
      
FROM STEVE KROFT (of TV program 60 Minutes)
   
This is very interesting material. Glenn Beck has been developing material to show all the ties that Soros has through the nation and world along with his goals. This article is written by Steve Kroft from 60 Minutes.  It begins to piece together the rise of Obama and his behavior in leading the nation along with many members of Congress (in particular the Democrats, such as the election of Pelosi as the minority leader in  Congress)
   
If you have wondered where Obama came from and just how he quickly moved from obscurity to President, or why the media is “selective” in what we are told, here is the man who most probably put him there and is responsible. He controls President Obama’s every move. Think this is absurd?   Invest a few minutes and read this. You won’t regret it.
 
Who is Obama? Obama is a puppet, and here is the explanation of the man or demon that pulls his strings. It’s not by chance that Obama can manipulate the world. I don’t think he knows how to tie his shoe laces. After reading this and Obama’s reluctance to accept help on the oil spill, you wonder if the spill is part of the plan to destroy the US.  “In history, nothing happens by accident. If it happened, you can bet someone planned it:”  Franklin Delano Roosevelt
 
Who Is George Soros? He brought the market down in two days. Here is what CBS’ Mr. Steve Kroft’s research has turned up. It’s a bit of a read, and it took 4 months to put it together. “The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States:”  George Soros”
   
George Soros is an evil man.  He’s anti-God, anti-family, anti-American, and anti-good. He killed and robbed his own Jewish people. What we have in Soros, is a multi-billionaire atheist, with skewed moral values and a sociopath’s lack of conscience He considers himself to be an elitist World class philosopher, despises the American way and loves to do social engineering and change cultures.
   
György Schwartz, better known to the world as George Soros, was born  August 12, 1930 in Hungary. Soros’ father, Tivadar, was a fervent practitioner of the Esperanto language invented in 1887, and designed to be the first global language, free of any national identity. The Schwartz’s, who were non-practicing Jews, changed the family name to Soros, in order to facilitate  assimilation into the Gentile population as the Nazis spread into Hungary during the 1930s
   
When Hitler’s henchman, Adolf Eichmann, arrived in Hungary to oversee the murder of that  country’s Jews, George Soros ended up with the man whose job was confiscating property from the Jewish population. Soros went with him on his rounds.
   
Soros has repeatedly called 1944  “the best year of his life.”  70% of Mr. Soros’s fellow Jews in Hungary, nearly a half-million human beings, were annihilated in that year, yet he gives no sign that this put any damper on his elation, either at the time or indeed in retrospect. During an interview with “Sixty Minute’s” Steve Kroft, Soros was asked about  his “best year.”
 
KROFT: My understanding is that  you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson.

SOROS: Yes.  Yes.
 
KROFT: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from your fellow Jews, friends and neighbors.

SOROS: Yes. That’s right.  Yes.
 
KROFT: I mean, that sounds like an experience that  would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many, years. Was it difficult?
   
SOROS: No, not at all. Not at all, I  rather enjoyed it.
 
KROFT: No feelings of  guilt?
   
SOROS: No, only feelings of absolute  power.
 
In his article, Muravchik describes how Soros  has admitted to having carried some rather “potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood, which I felt I had to control, otherwise they might get me in trouble.”  Be that as it may. After WWII, Soros attended the London School of Economics, where he fell under the thrall of fellow atheist and Hungarian, Karl Popper,  one of his professors.  Popper was a mentor to Soros until Popper’s  death in 1994 Two of Popper’s most influential teachings concerned  “the open society,” and Fallibilism.
 

Fallibilism is the philosophical doctrine that all claims of knowledge could, in principle, be mistaken. (Then again, I could be wrong about that.)   The “open society” basically refers to a test-and-evaluate approach to social engineering. Regarding “open society,” Roy Childs writes, “Since the Second World War, most of the Western democracies have followed Popper’s advice about piecemeal social  engineering and democratic social reform, and it has gotten them into a grand mess.”
 
In 1956 Soros moved to New York City, where he worked on Wall Street and started amassing his fortune. He specialized in hedge funds and currency speculation.  Soros is absolutely ruthless, amoral and clever in his business dealings, and quickly made his fortune. By the 1980s he was well on  his way to becoming the global powerhouse that he is today.
 
In an article Kyle-Anne Shiver wrote for “The American Thinker,” she says, “Soros made his first billion in 1992 by shorting  the British pound with leveraged billions in financial bets, and became known as the man who broke the Bank of England. He broke it on the backs of hard-working British citizens who immediately saw their homes severely devalued and their life savings cut drastically, almost overnight.”
   
In 1994 Soros crowed in The New Republic that “the former Soviet Empire is now called the Soros Empire.” The Russia-gate scandal in 1999, which almost collapsed the Russian economy, was labeled by Rep. Jim Leach, then head of the House Banking Committee, to be “one of the greatest social robberies in human history.” The “Soros Empire” indeed! In 1997 Soros almost destroyed the economies of Thailand and Malaysia.  At the time, Malaysia ‘s Prime Minister, Mahathir Mohammad, called  Soros “a villain, and a moron.” Thai activist Weng Tojirakarn said, “We regard George Soros as a kind of Dracula. He sucks the blood from the people.”
 
The website Greek National Pride reports, “Soros was part of the full court press that dismantled Yugoslavia and caused trouble in Georgia, Ukraine and Myanmar [Burma]. Calling himself a philanthropist, Soros’ role is to tighten the ideological stranglehold of globalization and the New World Order while promoting his own financial gain. He is without conscience, a capitalist who functions with absolute amorality.”
 
France has upheld an earlier conviction against Soros for felony insider trading. Soros was fined 2.9 million dollars. Recently, his native Hungary fined Soros 2.2  million dollars for “illegal market manipulation.” Elizabeth Crum  writes that the Hungarian economy has been in a state of transition as the country seeks to become more financially stable and westernized. Soros deliberately driving down the share price of its largest bank put Hungary ‘s economy into a wicked tailspin, one from which it is still trying to recover.
 
My point here is that Soros is a planetary parasite. His grasp, greed, and gluttony have a global reach.  But what about America? Soros told Australia ‘s national newspaper, The Australian, “America, as the centre of  the globalised financial markets, was sucking up the savings of the world. This is now over. The game is out,” he said, adding that “the time has come for a very serious adjustment in American’s consumption habits.”  He implied that he was the one with the  power to bring this about.
   
Soros: “World financial crisis was “stimulating and, in a way, the culmination of my life’s work.”
   
Obama has recently promised 10 billion of our tax dollars to Brazil in order to give them a leg-up in expanding their offshore oil fields. Obama’s largesse towards Brazil came shortly after his political financial backer, George Soros, invested heavily in Brazilian oil (Pet rob ras).
 
Tait Trussel writes, “The Pet robras loan may be a windfall for Soros and Brazil, but it is a bad deal for the US.  The American Petroleum Institute estimates that oil exploration in the US could create 160,000 new, well-paying jobs as well as $1.7 trillion in revenues to federal, state and local governments, all while fostering greater energy security and independence.
   
A blog you might want to keep an eye on is SorosWatch. com. Its mission: “This blog is dedicated to all who have suffered due to the ruthless financial  pursuits of George Soros. Your stories are many and varied, but the theme is the same: the destructive power of greed without  conscience. We pledge to tirelessly watch Soros wherever he goes and to print the truth in the hope that he will one day be made to stop preying upon the world’s poor, that justice will be served.”
   
Back to America. Soros has been actively working to destroy America from the inside out for some years now. People have been warning us. Two years ago, news sources reported that “Soros [is] an extremist who wants open borders, a one-world foreign policy, legalized drugs, euthanasia, and on and on. This is off-the-chart dangerous.”  In 1997 Rachel Ehrenfeld wrote, “Soros uses his philanthropy to change or more accurately deconstruct the moral values and attitudes of the Western world, and particularly of the American people. His “open society” is not about freedom; it is about license. His vision rejects the notion of ordered liberty, in favor of a PROGRESSIVE ideology of rights and entitlements.”
   
Perhaps the most important of these “whistle blowers” are David Horowitz and Richard Poe. Their book “The Shadow Party” outlines in detail how Soros hijacked the Democratic Party, and now owns it lock, stock, and barrel. Soros has been packing the Democratic Party with radicals, and ousting moderate Democrats for years. The Shadow Party became the Shadow Government, which recently became the Obama Administration.
   
Discover The Networks. org  (another good source) writes, “By his [Soros’] own admission, he  helped engineer coups in Slovakia, Croatia,  Georgia and Yugoslavia . When Soros targets a country for “regime change,” he begins by creating a  shadow government, a fully formed government-in-exile, ready to  assume power when the opportunity arises. The Shadow Party he has built in America greatly resembles those he has created in other  countries prior to instigating a coup.”

November 2008 edition of the German magazine “Der Spiegel,” in which Soros  gives his opinion on what the next POTUS (President of the U. S. ) should do after taking office: “I think we need a large stimulus package.” Soros thought that around 600 billion would be about right. Soros also said that “I think Obama presents us a great opportunity to finally deal with global warming and energy dependence.  The U. S. needs a cap-and-trade system with  auctioning of licenses for emissions rights.”
 
Although Soros doesn’t (yet) own  the Republican Party, as he does the Democrats, make no mistake, his tentacles are spread throughout the Republican Party as well.
   
Soros is a partner in the Carlyle Group where he has invested more than 100 million dollars. According to an article by “The Baltimore Chronicle’s” Alice Cherbonnier, the Carlye  Group is run by “a veritable who’s who of former Republican leaders,” from CIA man Frank Carlucci to CIA head and ex-President George Bush, Sr.
 
In late 2006, Soros  bought about 2 million shares of Halliburton, Dick Cheney’s old stomping grounds. When the Democrats and Republicans held their conventions in 2000, Soros held Shadow Party conventions in the same  cities, at the same time. In 2008, Soros donated $5,000,000,000 ( that’s five billion dollars) to the  Democratic National Committee to insure Obama’s win as well as wins for many other Alinsky trained Radical Rules Anti-Americans.  Socialist. George has been contributing a billion dollar- plus to the DNC since Clinton came on the scene.
 
Soros has dirtied both sides of the aisle, trust me. And if that weren’t bad enough, he has long held connections with the CIA. And I mustn’t forget to mention  Soros’ involvement with the MSM (Main Stream Media), the entertainment industry (e. g. he owns 2.6 million shares of Time Warner), and the various political advertising organizations he funnels millions to.  In short, George Soros controls or influences most of the MSM.

Little wonder they ignore the TEA PARTY, Soros’ NEMESIS.
   
As Matthew Vadum writes, “The liberal billionaire-turned-philanthropist has been buying up media properties for years in order to drive home his message to the American public that they are too materialistic, too wasteful, too selfish and too stupid to decide for themselves how to run their own lives.”
 
Richard Poe writes, “Soros’ private philanthropy, totaling nearly $5 billion, continues undermining America ‘s traditional Western values. His giving has provided funding of abortion rights, atheism, drug legalization, sex education, euthanasia, feminism, gun control,  globalization, mass immigration, gay marriage and other radical experiments in social engineering.”
   
  Some of the many NGOs (Non-Government Organizations) that Soros funds with his billions are: MoveOn. org, the Apollo Alliance , Media Matters for America , the Tides Foundation, the ACLU, ACORN, PDIA (Project on Death In America), La Raza and many more. For a more complete list, with  brief descriptions of the NGOs, go to DiscoverTheNetworks.org.
   
Poe continues, “Through his global web of  Open Society Institutes and Open Society Foundations, Soros has  spent 25 years recruiting, training, indoctrinating and installing a network of loyal operatives in 50 countries, placing them in positions of influence and power in media, government, finance and academia.”
 
Without Soros’ money, would the Saul Alinsky’s Chicago machine still be rolling? Would SEIU, ACORN, and La Raza still be pursuing their nefarious activities? Would Big Money and lobbyists still be corrupting government? Would our college campuses still be retirement homes for 1960s radicals?
   
America stands at the brink of an abyss, and that fact is directly attributable to Soros.

Soros has vigorously, cleverly, and insidiously planned the ruination of America — and his puppet, Barack Obama, is leading the way.
 
The words of Patrick Henry are apropos: “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?

Forbid it, almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!”

Soros has dirtied both sides of the aisle, trust me. And if that weren’t bad enough, he has long held connections with the CIA. And I mustn’t forget to mention Soros’ involvement with the MSM (Main Stream Media), the entertainment industry (e. g. he owns 2.6 million shares of Time Warner), and the various political advertising organizations he funnels millions to. In short, George Soros controls or influences most of the MSM.

Little wonder they ignore the TEA PARTY, Soros’ NEMESIS.

 

As Matthew Vadum writes, “The liberal billionaire-turned-philanthropist has been buying up media properties for years in order to drive home his message to the American public that they are too materialistic, too wasteful, too selfish and too stupid to decide for themselves how to run their own lives.”

 

Richard Poe writes, “Soros’ private philanthropy, totaling nearly $5 billion, continues undermining America ‘s traditional Western values. His giving has provided funding of abortion rights, atheism, drug legalization, sex education, euthanasia, feminism, gun control, globalization, mass immigration, gay marriage and other radical experiments in social engineering.”

 

Some of the many NGOs (Non-Government Organizations) that Soros funds with his billions are: MoveOn. org, the Apollo Alliance , Media Matters for America , the Tides Foundation, the ACLU, ACORN, PDIA (Project on Death In America), La Raza and many more. For a more complete list, with brief descriptions of the NGOs, go to DiscoverTheNetworks.org.

 

Poe continues, “Through his global web of Open Society Institutes and Open Society Foundations, Soros has spent 25 years recruiting, training, indoctrinating and installing a network of loyal operatives in 50 countries, placing them in positions of influence and power in media, government, finance and academia.”

 

Without Soros’ money, would the Saul Alinsky’s Chicago machine still be rolling? Would SEIU, ACORN, and La Raza still be pursuing their nefarious activities? Would Big Money and lobbyists still be corrupting government? Would our college campuses still be retirement homes for 1960s radicals?

 

America stands at the brink of an abyss, and that fact is directly attributable to Soros.

Soros has vigorously, cleverly, and insidiously planned the ruination of America — and his puppet, Barack Obama, is leading the way.

 

The words of Patrick Henry are apropos: “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?

Forbid it, almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!”

Materialistic Lawyer

Lexus GS 300
Image via Wikipedia
A very successful attorney parked his brand new Lexus in front of his office, ready to show it off to his colleagues. As he was getting out, a truck came along too closely and completely tore off the driver’s door.

Fortunately, a cop in a police car was close enough to see the accident and pulled up behind the Lexus with his lights flashing.

Before the cop had a chance to ask any questions, the attorney started screaming hysterically about how his Lexus, which he had just purchased the day before, was completely ruined and would never be the same, no matter how any car body shop tried to make it new again.

After the lawyer finally wound down from his rant, the cop shook his head in disbelief. “I can’t believe how materialistic you lawyers are,” he said. “You are so focused on your possessions that you neglect the most import ant things in life.”

“How can you say such a thing?” asked the lawyer.

The cop replied, “Don’t you even realize that your left arm is missing? It was severed when the truck hit you!”

“OH, MY GOD!!!” screamed the lawyer.

The World’s Most Outrageous Yachts

Now this is JUST  – ONE – that was shown of 12….

Octopus - One of Twelve Yachts

Octopus

 

Microsoft-cofounder Paul Allen’s 414-foot, blue-and-white megayacht, built for $200 million (and with an estimated annual operating budget of $20 million), is seriously tricked out. The behemoth is equipped with a recording studio, jet-ski dock, full-size basketball court, seven boats, a 63-foot tender, room for a crew of 60, two helipads (each with its own helicopter), and two submarines—one remote-control operated for studying the ocean’s floor, the other with the capacity to sleep eight guests and spend up to two weeks underwater.

THE GERMAN ARTISTS ARE AT IT AGAIN…

 

THE GERMAN ARTISTS ARE AT IT AGAIN
Here are 7 pictures of European trucks whose trailers are decorated to look like the sides are missing and the products they are hauling are painted on the sides and back. The first one is of a bottle of beer and looks so real, like it is coming out the side of the trailer..

The second is of canvas tote bag.

The third is of Pepsi cases and they are all stacked on the ceiling, and the bottom of the trailer is empty.

The fourth is of another truck with the windshield facing the back and there has been a driver painted in the driver’s seat looking back over his shoulder to appear like he is driving backwards. (Now this one is just plain scary, even when the German reads ‘On the wrong way?’)

The fifth one is of an aquarium with fish swimming in it.


The sixth one is of a bookshelf with books lined up in it and a post-it-note with an advertisement on it, probably for the company that sells the books.


The last one is for Pringles-Hot & Spicy. The ‘inside’ of the trailer has the appearance of having been through a fire.

Inner Peace

 

If you can start the day without caffeine,

If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

If you can resist complaining and boring people

with your troubles,

If you can eat the same food everyday and be grateful for it,

If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to

give you any time,

If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,

If you can conquer tension without medical help,

If you can relax without alcohol,

If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,

 

…Then You Are Probably………

Public Housing…Not HERE

 

The problem with public housing is that the residents are not the owners. The people that live in the house did not earn the house, but were loaned the property from the true owners, the taxpayers. Because of this, the residents do not have the “pride of ownership” that comes with the hard work necessary. In fact, the opposite happens and the residents resent their benefactors because the very house is a constant reminder that they themselves did not earn the right to live in the house. They do not appreciate the value of the property and see no need to maintain or respect it in any way.

The result is the same whether you are talking about a studio apartment or a magnificent mansion full of priceless antiques. If the people who live there do not feel they earned the privilege, they will make this known through their actions..

The picture below illustrates the point.

 
 

 

The Resolute Desk was built from the timbers of the HMS Resolute
and was a gift from Queen Victoria to President Rutherford B. Hayes.
It is considered a national treasure and an icon of the presidency.

Mr. Obama, you are not in a hut in Kenya, or public housing in Chicago . With all due respect, get your damn feet off our desk!!  

 
 

Annual Physical

 
 
 
 

After the eighty-three-year-old lady finished her annual physical
examination, the doctor said,

“You are in fine shape for your age, Mrs. Mallory, but tell me, do you
still have intercourse?”

“Just a minute, I’ll have to ask my husband,” she said..

She stepped out into the crowded reception room and yelled out loud:

“Henry, do we still have intercourse?” And there was a hush!

You could hear a pin drop.

Henry answered impatiently, “If I told you once, Irma, I told

you a hundred times… What we have is…….

MY problem with TWITTER

IF by chance you have been following me on Twitter – I made a booboo! –

They – Twitter – should learn something from WordPress.  Because I by mistake deactivated my Twitter account!  After doing this I would have thought that as popular as they are & certainly I’ve had the ‘bug bite’ …they would verify that it was ME who had deleted the account – and NOT a spammer as does WordPress!  But NO!

All my followers – All those who I had come to follow – the little things I had re-tweeted and FAV’D – GONE!  Shame on Twitter for not making sure that YOU are the one who has ‘ordered’ this … and to be honest — Facebook should do the same! —- With so many hackers – spammers out there – this is one way to make sure that YOU are the owner of the site!  Now when I made the mistake – I can now NO LONGER use M Y  e-mail that I and all that know me use!!!  I have to use another that I do not use!  But YET – Twitter still has and shows that MY e-mail and MY name are already in use (taken) DUH!!!! YES – Now why does TWITTER not get this straight? 

Why has Twitter & Facebook Not taken and learned from WordPress that misstakes can and are made & it would be better to ask & be wrong than not to ask at all!

 

PS…Don’t you think that ‘like ‘WordPress’ Facebook & Twitter should have ONE Main Log-in Page!!!!!!!!! One that also shows & tells the Features that that service provides & WHAT to look for??

Good – Better – Best

GOOD
In Warwick, a Rhode Island State Trooper was running
radar. He had a  perfect spot to watch for speeders,
but wasn’t  getting any. Then he discovered the problem.
A 12 year old boy was  standing up the road with a hand
painted sign which read ‘RADAR TRAP  AHEAD!’ The
officer later found a young accomplice down the road
with a sign reading,’TIPS’ and a bucket full of money.
(Beats a lemonade  stand!)

BETTER
A motorist was mailed a picture of his  car speeding
through an automated radar post in Cranston, RI   A
$40.00 speeding ticket was included. Being cute, he
sent the  police department a picture of$40.00.   The
police responded  with another mailed photo of
handcuffs.

BEST
A  young woman was pulled over in Providence, RI
for speeding. As the RI  State Trooper walked to her car
window, flipping open his ticket book,  she said, ‘I bet
you are going to sell me a ticket to the Rhode  Island
State Police Ball.’ He replied, ‘ RI State Troopers
don’t  have balls.’  There was a moment of silence
while she smiled and he  realized what he’d just said.
He then closed his book, got back in his  patrol car and
left.   She was laughing too hard to start her  car.

Does anyone want a dog?

 
 
My house was broken into last night by two robbers who locked me in the bathroom, and proceeded to steal all they could carry. My watchdog, “Sunshine”, did not alert me, and for this reason I am giving him away. I no longer want a dog – I’m installing an electric fence and detection devices with alarms. They’re cheaper and more reliable. For those interested in adopting the dog please send an e-mail urgently.

Codename

Obama‘s Insulting U.K. Codename’Chalaque’ is Scotland Yard‘s codename for the president on his U.K. visit, but what does it mean when translated?


*******************************

Before President Obama’s arrival in London, The Daily Mail ran a story under the headline “Codename ‘smart alec’: British police label Obama with ‘mildly offensive’ Punjabi word for visit to U.K.” Scotland Yard says its computers randomly picked a codename for Obama, “chalaque,” for his visit to the country. But the newspaper quoted a Sikh community leader saying the name is often used to “denigrate” someone. Yahoo News then picked up the story, featuring it on its homepage under the headline: “Obama Code Named ‘smart alec’ in Britain.”

Japanese Red

These Japanese Red-crowned Cranes were seen at the Akan International Crane Centre in Hokkaido, Japan. One appeared to be the gatekeeper – pronouncing on whether the other two could pass. It captured a humorous moment with members of this endangered species which has been brought back from the edge of extinction by conservation measures.

‘Rules Are Rules’

It was a normal day in Sharon Springs , Kansas ,when a Union Pacific crew boarded a loaded coal train for the long trek to Salina ..


The Bad news:

Just a few miles into the trip, a wheel-bearing became overheated, and
melted, letting a metal support drop down and grind on the rail,
creating white hot molten-metal droppings spewing down to the rail.

The Good news:
A very alert crew noticed smoke about halfway back in the train, and
immediately stopped the train in compliance with the Union Pacific
Safety Rules.

The Bad news:
The train stopped with the hot wheel over a wooden bridge, with
creosote ties and trusses.

The crew tried to explain to CEO ‘Higher-Ups’, but were
instructed NOT to move the train !

They were instructed
‘The Rules Book’ prohibits
moving the train when a part is defective !

REMEMBER… RULES ARE RULES!
Don’t
EVER/NEVER let common sense get in the way of a good disaster!

The boss wondered why one of his employees was absent but had not phoned in sick. So he dialed the employee‘s home phone number and was greeted with a child‘s whisper.

Hello ? ‘

‘Is your daddy home?’

Yes, he’s out in the garden ,’ whispered the small voice. ‘

May I talk with him?’

The child whispered, No .’ ;

So the boss asked, ‘Well, is your Mommy there?’

Yes, she’s out in the garden too

& The boss asked; ‘May I talk with her?’

Again the small voice whispered, No .’

Hoping there was somebody with whom he could leave a message, the boss asked, ‘Is anybody else there?’

Yes.’ whispered the child, A policeman. ‘

Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee’s home, the boss asked, ‘Well, may I speak with the policeman?’

No, he’s busy. ‘ whispered the child.

‘Busy doing what?’

Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the police dog men.

Growing more worried as he heard a loud noise in the background, the boss asked, ‘What is that noise?’

It’s a helicopter. answered the whispering voice.

‘What is going on there?’ demanded the boss, now truly worried.

The search team just landed a helicopter.

‘A search team?’ said the boss. ‘What are they searching for?’

Still whispering, the young voice replied with a muffled giggle, Me!

Zsa Zsa in Coma

Husband: Zsa Zsa Slipped Into a Coma

By Audrey Morrison
Wed, 18 May 2011 19:51:32 GMT

zsa-zsa-big.jpgPrince Frederic von Anhalt told TMZ his ailing wife fell into a coma after being rushed to an L.A. hospital on Tuesday for emergency stomach surgery.

Zsa Zsa’s rep John Blanchette confirmed she was admitted because her feeding tube was causing “bleeding … like a fountain.”

Blanchette added that her husband “was worried and hoped she wasn’t dying in front of his eyes.”

Sadly, von Anhalt confirmed on Wednesday that his 94-year-old wife has been unresponsive since 2am.

This is the latest health setback for Gabor who has undergone hip replacement surgery, a leg amputation and was, most recently, hospitalized for pneumonia on May 5.

From ABC News – ending in September & January……

All My Children & One Life to Live

What am I to do with my afternoon Days!?

Stay away from my NOSE!

1995-3rd runner-up in Petite Contest
Deborah Register 1995 in Petite Contest

Nose – odd subject – but if you’ve ever had any type of nose surgery you can relate.

This may seem strange – but please just follow me here……

On the 23rd of March I had surgery on the nose – which actually started over a year ago when I had complained to a Doctor at Mayo Clinic about my unusual headaches – he did the usual EEGMRI of my lower back which I also had told this doctor about with my back being ‘out of wack’ and needed checking (mind you he only did and MRI of the very lower back) and when I mentioned that my headaches were NOT migraine (I know what those are) it was not stress related – it was just ‘not’ a headache and that I felt an MRI of my brain )((which I have one Every Year)) and one was over due – HE Told me.. “You don’t need one – but I’ll do one if it will please you and you think you need it.” 

Now forward fast to current – same hospital & Doctors location – was sent by another doctor here in town for 2nd opinion – from which this doctor I was sent to from another doctor in town who listened to me and my problems with not only my pain problems but the problem with understanding my back and my headaches……..THIS doctor is one who listened – sent me for EEG & MRI – (But not only just an MRI of the Back —- but the FULL BACK/SPINE – and included and FULL MRI of the Brain – and X-Ray of the lungs, and when the results came back  – lungs fine….back/spine showed the displacement of my spine all UP & DOWN but also a tear in the lower spine ( the Lumbar / Cervical / Thurastic ) .. and then the MRI results of the BRAIN – – – said problem IN PART might be coming from a sinus infection!! —- so now do you see where this began and where it takes me?

This doctor understood – sent me to the doctor who confirmed – who in turn sent me to another doctor for a second oppinion (at Mayo Clinic) and he is the one who did this surgery!

Deborah Register Day of Nose Surgery 2011 March 23

HE did three surgeries on my nose and while my nose is still not to it’s normal state that Mom & Dad & I remember my ‘small’ nose to be … we had become so use to seeing each other every day that some things you just take for granted – like getting old ‘er’ and thngs change…but Mom & Dad had mentioned about my face to themselves….(come to understand that my face was swollen — the left side was full of infection under the cheek which is in part of the nose) ((and back a few months earlier my ‘new’ eye doctor found that I had eye infection -that is also another story)) — but all things within the face are somehow connected.

While I keep in mind that I am so improving – I must remember that this was originally scheduled for the 6th of April  ( which was the day after Mom’s Birthday ’83’ ) and with the change – ON her birthday we had the Surgery 1st Follow-up .. and good results then we were able to go on to dinner etc and enjoy the afternoon! … MOTHER has been such an angel in all this.  The Nasal Irrigation which started the Saturday after the surgery Mom has done for me … and I’m so thankful & grateful for her being able to help me with this…..this is one part I just do not think that I could have done mysself…..

The surgery (as I mention) was moved up from the April 6th date to March 23 date – so the afternoon before when I had to rush things through and see the doctor he wanted to know if I knew exactly what he was going to do – I said NO – and did not want to know! — as things had been moved up (becuase before I had plently of time to read the info) … I had glanced 0ver the info …. and that was Enough …

So the Surgeries —-

1)  Septoplasty  2)  Turbinate  Hypertrophy and  Rhinitis  3)  Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

If you’ve ever had NOSE surgery or know someone who has – Don’t bother their nose!

If you see something out of ‘place’ with the nose – check it!

So there you have it – why I’ve been lack in responding to your posts or posting much of anything!

Getting Better-April 10, 2011
Deborah Register After Nose Surgery

While the picture above was taken yesterday you can certainly see the

improvement from the day of surgery!!! — But can you see some difference

in the face?  It is NOT where I want it yet and the nose is still swollen – but
sooo much better than before  – even the face appears not as swollen as the day before!

Interesting!

After reading this, you will never look at a deck of cards in the same way.

 

Here is a new way to look at a deck of cards!!
Please do not delete! You will be glad you didn’t.

Deck of Cards

It was quiet that day, the guns and the mortars, and land mines for some reason hadn’t been heard.

The young soldier knew it was Sunday, the holiest day of the week.

As he was sitting there, he got out an old deck of cards and laid them out across his bunk.

Just then an army sergeant came in and said, ‘Why aren’t you with the rest of the platoon?’

The soldier replied, ‘I thought I would stay behind and spend some time with the Lord.’

The sergeant said, ‘Looks to me like you’re going to play cards.’

The soldier said, ‘No, sir . You see, since we are not allowed to have Bibles or other spiritual books in this country,

I’ve decided to talk to the Lord by studying this deck of cards.’

The sergeant asked in disbelief, ‘How will you do that?’

‘You see the Ace, Sergeant? It reminds me that there is only one God.

The Two represents the two parts of the Bible, Old and New Testaments

The Three represents the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost.

The Four stands for the Four Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John .

The Five is for the five virgins there were ten but only five of them were glorified.

The Six is for the six days it took God to create the Heavens and Earth.

The Seven is for the day God rested after making His Creation.

The Eight is for the family of Noah and his wife, their three sons and their wives — the eight people God spared from the flood that destroyed the Earth.

The Nine is for the lepers that Jesus cleansed of leprosy He cleansed ten, but nine never thanked Him.

The Ten represents the Ten Commandments that God handed down to Moses on tablets made of stone.

The Jack is a reminder of Satan, one of God’s first angels, but he got kicked out of heaven for his sly and wicked ways and is now the joker of eternal hell.

The Queen stands for the Virgin Mary.

The King stands for Jesus, for he is the King of all kings.

When I count the dots on all the cards, I come up with 365 total, one for every day of the year.

There are a total of 52 cards in a deck; each is a week – 52 weeks in a year.

The four suits represent the four seasons: Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter..

Each suit has thirteen cards — there are exactly thirteen weeks in a quarter.

So when I want to talk to God and thank Him, I just pull out this old deck of cards and they remind me of all that I have to be thankful for.’

The sergeant just stood there. After a minute, with tears in his eyes and pain in his heart, he said, ‘Soldier, can I borrow that deck of cards?’

Please let this be a reminder and take time to pray for all of our soldiers who are being sent away, putting their lives on the line fighting

Prayer for the Military.

Please keep the wheel rolling. It will only take a few seconds of your time, but it’ll be worth it to read on….

Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands.

Protect them.

Bless them and their families

President’s Day

I was eating lunch today with my 14 year old grandson when his mom asked him  “What is tomorrow?”

He said “It’s President’s Day”

She asked “What does that mean?” …. I was waiting for something profound…

He said  “President’s Day is when Obama steps out of the White House and if he sees his shadow, we have 2 more years of unemployment.”

Pay Attention! Life is short….

 

Life is short….

I think there is a VERY PROFOUND message here!

How true is this one!!!!!  

 

 THE SITUATION

In Washington , DC , at a Metro Station, on a cold January morning in 2007, this man with a violin played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time, approximately 2,000 people went through the station, most of them on their way to work. After about 3 minutes, a middle-aged man noticed that there was a musician playing. He slowed his pace and stopped for a few seconds, and then he hurried on to meet his schedule.

 

About 4 minutes later:


The violinist received his first dollar. A woman threw money in the hat and, without stopping, continued to walk.

At 6 minutes:

A young man leaned against the wall to listen to him, then looked at his watch and started to walk again.

At 10 minutes:

A 3-year old boy stopped, but his mother tugged him along hurriedly. The kid stopped to look at the violinist again, but the mother pushed hard and the child continued to walk, turning his head the whole time. This action was repeated by several other children, but every parent – without exception – forced their children to move on quickly.

At 45 minutes:


The musician played continuously. Only 6 people stopped and listened for a short while. About 20 gave money but continued to walk at their normal pace. The man collected a total of $32.

After 1 hour:

He finished playing and silence took over. No one noticed and no one applauded. There was no recognition at all.

No one knew this, but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the greatest musicians in the world. He played one of the most intricate pieces ever written, with a violin worth $3.5 million dollars. Two days before, Joshua Bell sold-out a theater in Boston where the seats averaged $100 each to sit and listen to him play the same music.

This is a true story. Joshua Bell, playing incognito in the D.C. Metro Station, was organized by the Washington Post as part of a social experiment about perception, taste and people’s priorities.

This experiment raised several questions:

*In a common-place environment, at an inappropriate hour, do we perceive beauty?

*If so, do we stop to appreciate it?

*Do we recognize talent in an unexpected context?

One possible conclusion reached from this experiment could be this:

If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best musicians in the world, playing some of the finest music ever written, with one of the most beautiful instruments ever made . . ..

How many other things are we missing as we rush through life?

Enjoy life NOW… it has an expiration date

The price of Gas versus Printer Ink

The price of Gas versus Printer Ink
All these examples do NOT imply that gasoline is cheap; it just

illustrates how outrageous some prices are….

You will be really shocked by the last one!
(At least, I was…)

Compared with Gasoline……

Think a gallon of gas is expensive?

This makes one think, and also puts things in perspective.

Diet Snapple 16 oz $1.29 … $10.32 per gallon

Lipton Ice Tea 16 oz $1.19 ……….$9.52 per gallon

Gatorade 20 oz $1.59 ….. $10.17 per gallon

Ocean Spray 16 oz $1.25 ……… $10.00 per gallon

Brake Fluid 12 oz $3.15 …… $33.60 per gallon

Vick’s Nyquil 6 oz $8.35 … $178.13 per gallon

Pepto Bismol 4 oz $3.85 .. $123.20 per gallon

Whiteout 7 oz $1.39 ……. . $25.42 per gallon

Scope 1.5 oz $0.99 ……$84.48 per gallon

And this is the REAL KICKER…

Evian water 9 oz $1.49..$21.19 per gallon! $21.19 for WATER and

the buyers don’t even know the source.

(Evian spelled backwards is Naive.)

Ever wonder why printers are so cheap?

So they have you hooked for the ink. Someone calculated the cost of

the ink at……………
(you won’t believe it….but it is true……..) $5,200 a gal. (five

thousand two hundred dollars)

So, the next time you’re at the pump, be glad your car doesn’t run

on water, Scope, or Whiteout, Pepto Bismol, Nyquil or God forbid,

Printer Ink!

Just a little humor to help ease the pain of your next trip to the

pump…

And – If you don’t pass this along to at least one person, your

muffler will fall off!!

Okay, your muffler won’t really fall off…but, you might run out of

toilet paper.

 

This is the BEST LAWYER INSURANCE STORY OF THE YEAR

Cigar box with cigar cases
Image via Wikipedia

(You are invited to judge by yourself, however!).

This took place in Charlotte , North Carolina .

A lawyer purchased a box of very rare and expensive cigars, then insured them against, among other things, fire.  Within a month, having smoked his entire stockpile of these great cigars, the lawyer filed a claim against the insurance company.  In his claim, the lawyer stated the cigars were lost “in a series of small fires.”

The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious reason, that the man had consumed the cigars in the normal fashion.

The lawyer sued and WON!

(Stay with me.)

Delivering the ruling, the judge agreed with the insurance company that the claim was frivolous. The judge stated nevertheless, that the lawyer held a policy from the company, in which it had warranted that the cigars were insurable and also guaranteed that it would insure them against fire, without defining what is considered to be unacceptable “fire” and was obligated to pay the claim.

Rather than endure lengthy and costly appeal process, the insurance company accepted the ruling and paid $15,000 to the lawyer for his loss of the cigars that perished in the ‘fires’.

NOW FOR THE BEST PART . . .

After the lawyer cashed the check, the insurance company had him arrested on 24 counts of ARSON!  With his own insurance claim and testimony from the previous case being used against him, the lawyer was convicted of intentionally burning his insured property and was sentenced to 24 months in jail and a $24,000 fine.

This true story won First Place in last year’s Criminal Lawyers Award contest.
