The country music reference is questionable, however, some of Willie's songs can live in your head long after the music stops.

   Gerty  Mr.Wright--is there something I am misinterpreting in this chart?

For example: The question is "What is your state the WORST at? If Alaska is the worst at suicide, that means there are fewer cases of people offing themselves there. Yes?

It doesn't work the same for all states. Oh, my...I'm so con-foooosed!

   Wrightwinger  I think the idea is that these are bad things that are present in remarkable numbers in each state. I have no idea about the validity or the veracity of the information, and certainly don't think it means that some of these are in epic numbers. In WV we do tend toward heart disease and diet related problems as the number of family farms and gardens decline, and the food that is less expensive tends to be food that is also used to fatten cows.

   Bettijo  I think it was Coach Tonto Coleman, the late SEC Commissioner and former Assistant Athletic Director under Bobby Dodd at Georgia Tech who used to tell this joke. Or it could have been the baseball coach, Joe Pittman (I think was his name ) who was there at the same time. (Any of you remember the name of the baseball coach, my age is catching up with me. ) Anyway, I hope I can do this joke justice.

A fly ball went over the center fieldman's head, the next one went just to his right, the next one went just to his left, finally one went between his legs. The manager was so angry, he stormed out onto the field and said, "I'll play center field!" The first ball went right over the manager's head, the next one when just to his right, the next one went just to his left, finally one went between his legs.

The manager threw down his mitt and screamed, "Now, see what you've done! You have center field so messed up nobody can play it."

That is how I feel about Obama. I fear he has this country so messed up, nobody can straighten it out.

   Alice  Good joke, Bettijo, it gave me my first laugh of the day.

My husband and I agreed last night that what sets Obama apart is that he has demonstrated a weakness in the American system of government that we had not perceived in the past: the separation of powers depends on integrity rather than enforcement.

I'm sadly pretty ignorant of American history, but Obama's administrative actions seem unprecedented.

What is scary is that the Democratic Party as a whole encourages him and does not see a bad precedent in his expansion of presidential powers to re-writing laws. He is not operating in a vacuum; Pelosi, Reid, Debbis W-S, and on down through the ranks think he's a fine president -- including my own in-laws.

It's hard not to think we are toast when so many seem to happily accept what I see as looming totalitarianism.

   Bettijo  @Alice:
Dwight D. Eisenhower once said, I paraphrase his quote, "The most important quality for a any leader, sport, business, military, or government, is integrity." Sadly, our current leader doesn't even know the meaning of "integrity."

   Balogreene  @Alice. It's not so bleak (I hope ). It's easy and fun to learn history (at least for me ). Go on Amazon, subscribe to, check out the national archives free audible books (or the Connections reading page ). I have a Kindle, but, you can get the app for your PC (or MAC ), many books are free. It's amazing what you learn. I don't read a lot of fiction, and a lot of books are free on Kindle, or from various sources. If we don't know history, we are doomed to repeat our mistakes.

We've been here before as a nation, and have fought back. We just have to learn from the past.

   Ynaught  (AP - Washington, D.C. ) - Police warn all clubbers, party-goers and unsuspecting pub regulars to be alert and stay cautious when offered a drink from any woman. A new date rape drug on the market called "beer" is used by many females to target unsuspecting men.

The drug is generally found in liquid form and is now available almost anywhere. It comes in bottles, cans, from taps and in large "kegs." "Beer" is used by female sexual predators at parties and bars to persuade their male victims to go home and have sex with them. Typically, a woman needs only to persuade a guy to consume a few units of "beer" and then simply ask him home for no strings attached sex. Men are rendered helpless against this approach.

After several "beers" men will often succumb to desires to perform sexual acts on horrific looking women to whom they would never normally be attracted. After drinking "beer" men often awaken with only hazy memories of exactly what happened to them the night before, often with just a vague feeling that something bad occurred.

At other times these unfortunate men are swindled out of their life's savings in a familiar scam known as "a relationship." It has been reported that in extreme cases, the female may even be shrewd enough to entrap the unsuspecting male into a longer-term form of servitude and punishment referred to as "marriage." Apparently, men are much more susceptible to this scam after "beer" is administered and sex is offered by the predatory female.

Please! Forward this warning to every male you know. However, if you fall victim to this insidious "beer" and the predatory women administering it, there are male support groups with venues in every town where you can discuss the details of your shocking encounter in an open and frank manner with similarly affected, like-minded guys. For the support group nearest you, just look up "Golf Courses" in the yellow pages.

For centuries, Hindu women have worn a Red Dot on their foreheads. Most of us have naively thought this was connected with tradition or religion, but the Indian Embassy in Washington DC recently revealed the true story.

When a Hindu woman gets married, she brings a dowry
into the union. On her wedding night, the husband scratches off the dot to see whether he has won a convenience store, a gas station, a donut shop, a taxi cab, or a motel in the United States . If nothing is there, he must remain in India to answer telephones and provide us with technical advice.

   Safetydude  (Ok, since I totally screwed up on my last entry, I'm going to try this one more time )

After Peter retired from the AF he got a part-time job as a greeter at a local
After a couple of weeks his supervisor called him into her office.
"Peter", she said, "I know you've only been here for a short time and I know you are doing a great job as a greeter. You're well spoken, clean shaven, wear clean and pressed clothes every day but you can't seem to get here on time. Every day you you show up anywhere from five to fifteen minute late. We can't have that!"
"I know" he answered. "I'll try to do better".
"You better do more than try if you want to stay on the Walmart team".

As Peter was on his way out she asked, "and by the way, Peter, when you were in the AF and if you showed up late day after day, what did they say to you"?

"Good morning, General. Here's your coffee".

   MeiDei  News Flash - Another boat intercepted off the Texas coast!!

The Navy intercepted a boatload of people off the Texas coast today.

This placed the Navy in an awkward position, as the boat was not heading to the USA, but towards Mexico and Central America.

Another surprise finding was the people were white American retirement age seniors. Their claim was that they were trying to get to Central America or Southern Mexico as they wanted to return to the US as illegal immigrants. Then they would be entitled to far more benefits than they were receiving as legitimate American retirees.

It is believed the Navy gave them food, water and fuel and assisted them on their journey.

We are booking on the next boat out. Let me know if you want to join us.
