RANT: We have some “yahoos” here?

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

*** begin quote ***

I was encouraged to learn that former President Jimmy Carter had decided to sever ties with the Southern Baptist Convention, after a lifetime in that denomination, because of its position that Eve was responsible for original sin, that wives must be subservient to their husbands, and that women were prohibited from serving as deacons, pastors, or chaplains in the military service. This is indeed an abomination and must be challenged at every opportunity. Bravo to Jimmy Carter for having the courage to speak the truth in love.

I’m thankful that the rest of the world keeps their women down. As one radio host used to say “with one hand tied behind my back”, these Yahoos manage to deprive themselves of a whole lot of human resource. Good for us! Then I read that we still have some of the same Yahoos here in country.

Wow!

How dumb?

Carrying a grudge from the beginning of time. Based on a book of unknown veracity. About a time when time began.

Reminds me of the movie about the primitive worshipping a Coke Bottle that fell out of a plane.

Makes as much sense.

RANT: Slandering the insurance companies!

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

Did Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius just accuse the insurance companies of being dishonest?

Isn’t Obama the chief law enforcement officer?

So which is it?

FUN: WALK NAKED IN AMERICA DAY

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

FROM ONE OF MY EFRIENDS WITH CLEARLY TOO MUCH TIME ON HIS HANDS!

*** begin quote ***

I felt compelled to pass this on and do my part.

WALK NAKED IN AMERICA DAY

Don’t forget to mark your calendars. As you may already know, it is a sin for a Muslim male to see any woman other than his wife naked. He must commit suicide if he does. So next Saturday at 4 PM Eastern Time, all American women are asked to walk out of their house completely naked to help weed out any neighborhood terrorists. Circling your block for one hour is recommended for this anti-terrorist effort. All patriotic men are to position themselves in lawn chairs in front of their house to prove they are not Muslims and to demonstrate they think its okay to see nude women other than their wife and to show support for all American women. Since Islam also does not approve of alcohol, a cold 6-pack at your side is further proof of your anti-Muslim sentiment. The American government appreciates your efforts to root out terrorists and applauds your participation in this anti-terrorist activity.

God bless America!

It is your patriotic duty to pass this on. If you don’t send this to at least 5 people, you’re a terrorist-sympathizing, lily-livered coward and are in the position of posing as a national threat.

MONEY: Hyperinflation

MILLIONS, BILLIONS, TRILLIONS
Germany in the Era of HyperinflationBy Alexander Jung

*** begin quote ***

During the hyperinflation in Germany of 1920s, the country’s currency, the mark, went crazy. The government of the Weimar Republic may have been able to clear its debts, but it came at the cost of the citizens’ savings. It’s an era that is still part of the national psyche today.
*** and ***

Take for example the family that sold its house to emigrate to America. On arrival at the port of Hamburg, they found that the money wasn’t enough to pay for their crossing — in fact, it didn’t even pay for their tickets back home. Then there was the man who drank two cups of coffee at 5,000 marks each, only to be presented with a bill for 14,000. When he asked why this was he was told he should have ordered the coffees at the same time because the price had gone up in between. And then there’s the story about the couple that took a few hundred million marks to the theater box office hoping to see a show, but discovered it wasn’t nearly enough. Tickets were now a billion marks each.

And that kiddies is what faces us here in the USA in the near future.
But It CAN’T happen here!
Can it?
