The Sixteen Dollar Muffin

Today we learned that Barack Obama (who will soon make Jimmy Carter look competent) ate a $16 Muffin. Now, who paid for that muffin? You and I. So, let me be perfectly clear on this, if you think he should have $16 muffins then you pay for them because this is one tax payer that is sick and tired of the Manchurian President partying with his wife at our expense. This man is arrogant and stupid and for all those of you out there who don’t get it you are  just as dumb as a rock.

Catching Wild Pigs

Catching Wild Pigs

A chemistry professor in a large college had some exchange students in the class.

One day while the class was in the lab the Professor noticed one young man (exchange student) who kept rubbing his back, and stretching as if his back hurt.

The professor asked the young man what was the matter.

The student told him he had a bullet lodged in his back. He had been shot while fighting communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow his country’s government and install a new communist government.

In the midst of his story he looked at the professor and asked a strange question. He asked, ‘Do you know how to catch wild pigs?’

The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line.

The young man said this was no joke. ‘You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground.
The pigs find it and begin to come everyday to eat the free corn. When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming.
When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence. They get used to that and start to eat again. You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side. The pigs, who are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat, you slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd.

Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom.
They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught.
Soon they go back to eating the free corn.

They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity.

The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees happening to America

The government keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare, medicine, drugs, etc..

While we continually lose our freedoms, just a little at a time.

Ten Years

Next week marks ten years from that day of terror that left us all stunned and started a hunt for those responsible. Ten years of hunting ended this year with the death of Osama bin Laden, but there are more like him out there who will fill his shoes. So, what is the solution? Does anyone have an answer? I think a lot of answers are out there. I believe the answer is education. How can we expect people who live in the manner of their ancestors hundreds of years ago to understand the present. We cannot. As long as these people are uneducated with nothing to do in their lives but to hate and be subservient to radical leaders who seek power for themselves we will be faced with OBL figures. As long as women are forced into virtual slavery by their husbands and children and women are condemned and murdered under Sharia law it will continue to be that OBL will walk among us.
