   WAN2 posted on Jokes  A Baptist minister and a Unitarian minister were flying to a multifaith convention together. The Unitarian was very nervous and confided to the Baptist that this was the first time he had ever flown and was very scared. The Baptist said that there was nothing to it — "Just sit next to me and I will help you." The Baptist showed him how to put on his seat belt and adjust the air vents. Once in the air, a very pretty flight attendant came by with a tray of drinks. "Cocktails?" she asked. The Unitarian lifted one off the tray and said, "Thank you." The Baptist had just delivered a fiery sermon on the evils of alcohol that morning. He looked at the flight attendant and said, "Young lady, I would rather commit fornication than touch alcohol to my lips." Shocked, the Unitarian placed his drink back on the tray and said, "I believe I would too, I didn't know we had that choice."

   WAN2 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Trump & The Pope...

Seeking a weekend break from his campaign rallies; Donald Trump jetted to his yacht, which was docked off the coast of Italy. He invited Pope Francis and the press corps on board for a Saturday afternoon cruise.

It was a rather windy day. The Pope's little hat, his zucchetto, was blown from his head and into the water. A crewman began lowering a boat to retrieve the zucchetto. Trump told the crewman not to bother. Trump climbed down the yacht's ladder; walked across the waves, picked up the zucchetto; walked back to the yacht and handed it to the Pope. The Pope and the press corps were amazed! Donald Trump could actually walk on water!

Speculation immediately began as to how ABC, CNN, NBC, ABC, The Washington Post and New York Times would report this miraculous event to the rest of the world.

The next morning the New York Times headline read . . .

   Balogreene  We used to own greyhounds. A couple in our group had a 100 lb. boy who couldn't do stairs, so they carried him up and down every day. Then, one day, they came home and he ran downstairs to greet them. He wasn't carried again.

   StormCnter  We had a female Chow mix who was afraid of nothing in the world but open staircases, the kind with no risers. We carried her up and down a lot of motel stairs when we were traveling.

   MeiDei  Your comment made me laugh Storm, did you happen to see the video on the Dogs, Cats Wall of dogs going up & down stairs? There's a fellow with a full grown St. Bernard that has/had your Chow experience.

   WAN2 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Best description of Barack Obama ever written….(in 2008 )

Jack Wheeler is a brilliant man who was the author of
Reagan's strategy to break the back of the Soviet Union
with the star wars race and expose their inner weakness.
For years he wrote a weekly intelligence update that was
extremely interesting and well structured and informative.
He consults(ed ) with several mega corporations on global
trends and the future, etc. He is in semi-retirement now.
He is a true patriot with a no-nonsense approach to everything.
He is also a somewhat well-known mountain climber and

Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler:

The O-man, Barack Hussein Obama, is an eloquently tailored
empty suit. No resume, no accomplishments, no experience,
no original ideas, no understanding of how the economy works,
no understanding of how the world works, no balls,
nothing but abstract, empty rhetoric devoid of real substance.

He has no real identity. He is half-white, which he rejects.
The rest of him is mostly Arab, which he hides but is disclosed by
his non-African Arabic surname and his Arabic first and middle
names as a way to triply proclaim his Arabic parentage to people
in Kenya . Only a small part of him is African Black from his Luo
grandmother, which he pretends he is exclusively.

What he isn't, not a genetic drop of, is 'African-American,' the
descendant of enslaved Africans brought to America chained in
slave ships. He hasn't a single ancestor who was a slave. Instead,
his Arab ancestors were slave owners. Slave-trading was the main
Arab business in East Africa for centuries until the British ended it.

Let that sink in: Obama is not the descendant of slaves, he is the
descendant of slave owners.
Thus he makes the perfect Liberal Messiah.

It's something Hillary doesn't understand - how some complete
neophyte came out of the blue and stole the Dem nomination from
her. Obamamania is beyond politics and reason. It is a true religious
cult, whose adherents reject Christianity yet still believe in Original Sin,
transferring it from the evil of being human to the evil of being white.

Thus Obama has become the white liberals' Christ, offering absolution
from the Sin of Being White. There is no reason or logic behind it,
no faults or flaws of his can diminish it, no arguments Hillary could make
of any kind can be effective against it. The absurdity of Hypocrisy
Clothed In Human Flesh being their Savior is all the more cause for
liberals to worship him:
Credo quia absurdum, I believe it because it is absurd.

Thank heavens that the voting majority of Americans remain Christian
and are in no desperate need of a phony savior.

He is ridiculous and should not be taken seriously by any thinking American.

And yet he got elected, not once but twice. Thanks to those that did
not think it was important to vote for freedom and those that were willing
to give up their freedoms for entitlements.

Remember you don't have to be on a southern plantation to be a slave,
if you are dependent on government entitlements you just have a different
slave owner.

Thought you might want to consider getting on board early.

A world famous engineer just started a business in Afghanistan.

He's making land mines that look like prayer mats.

It's doing well.

   WAN2 posted on Jokes  Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting. Well, for example, the other day, my wife and I went into town and visited a shop.

When we came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket. We went up to him and I said, "Come on, man, how about giving a senior citizen a break?" He ignored us and continued writing the ticket. I called him an a--hole. He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn-out tires.

So my wife called him a sh--head. He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he started writing more tickets. This went on for about 20 minutes. The more we abused him, the more tickets he wrote.

Just then our bus arrived, and we got on it and went home.

We always look for cars with "OBAMA 2012", or "HILLARY 2016" stickers.

We try to have a little fun each day now that we're retired. It's important at our age.

   WAN2 posted on Politics  Thomas Sowell on 'Greed'
From noted black economist Thomas Sowell's "The Vision of the Anointed" (1995 ):

Among the many other questions raised by the nebulous concept of "greed" is why it is a term applied almost exclusively to those who want to earn more money

or to keep what they have already earned—never to those wanting to take other people's money in taxes or to those wishing to live on the largess dispensed

from such taxation. No amount of taxation is ever described by the anointed as "greed" on the part of government or the clientele of government. . . .

Families who wish to be independent financially and to make their own decisions about their lives are of little interest or use to those who are seeking to

impose their superior wisdom and virtue on other people. Families wishing to retain what they have earned threaten to deprive the anointed of the money

needed to distribute as largess to others who would thus become subject to their direction. In these circumstances, it is understandable why the desire to

increase and retain one's own earnings should be characterized negatively as "greed," while wishing to live at the expense of others is not.

   WAN2 posted on Main Page The Lobby  From social philosopher Eric Hoffer's "The True Believer" (1951 ):

There is in us a tendency to locate the shaping forces of our existence outside ourselves. Success and failure are unavoidably related in our minds with the state of things around us. Hence it is that people with a sense of fulfillment think it a good world and would like to conserve it as it is, while the frustrated favor radical change. The tendency to look for all causes outside ourselves persists even when it is clear that our state of being is the product of personal qualities such as ability, character, appearance, health and so on. "If anything ail a man," says Thoreau, "so that he does not perform his functions, if he has a pain in his bowels even . . . he forthwith sets about reforming the world."

The lesson? Beware True Believers...
