Dependence

***My sister sent this to me via email:

Isn't It Ironic?

The food stamp program, part of the Department of Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of food stamps ever.

Meanwhile, the Park Service, asks us to "please do not feed the animals" because the animals may grow dependent and not learn to take care of themselves.

Have an interesting day.


In the United States, right now, women have preferential treatment – by law – in any company that gets federal funds (which heaven help us, right now, is most of them.)  Women live longer than men.  Cancers that affect females get more money and more attention than those that affect only men.  Women have the right to be sole deciders on abortion, and if they decide to keep the child and make the man pay, he pays.  (This by the way is a complete reversal of the “penalty” of sex which used to fall mostly on women.)  And if he doesn’t pay, he goes to jail.  Divorce courts award custody to mothers overwhelmingly.  Oh, and in college campuses, women outnumber men.
If this is war it is war on men.  And I’ve had just about enough of everyone who claims otherwise.

And the best part:

If you truly believe refusing to force employers to pay for birth control is a war on women, then you are fragile little flowers who deserve to experience life practically anywhere else in the world.  You are also unleashing a monster.  Get the government to force this and NOTHING is out of bonds.  Forget selling you the rope to hang you with.  The government will eventually force you to pay them to hang you.

Read the whole thing. She's absolutely right.

***Today the President will attend six separate fundraisers. On our dime, of course.  Oh, imagine the hue and cry if this were a Republican...

***Romney gets all 20 Puerto Rico delegates. Looks more and more like it's gonna be Romney/? 2012. I hope he picks a solid conservative as VP.

***Joe Biden: Buffoon

“I want to tell you what’s real bankruptcy — the economic theories of (Newt) Gingrich, (Rick) Santorum and (Mitt) Romney. They are bankrupt. If you give any one of these guys the keys to the White House, they will bankrupt the middle class again,” Biden said.

Unlike the Democrat policies, which of course are causing an economic boom. Not.

***I can relate...

LAW OF THE GARBAGE TRUCK

One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport we were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us.  My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches!  The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us.  My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy.  And I mean, he was really friendly. 

So I asked, 'Why did you just do that?  This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!'  This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call, 'The Law of the Garbage Truck.'

He explained that some people are like garbage trucks.  They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment.  As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they'll dump it on you...Don't take it personally.  Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on.  Don't take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets.

The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day.  Life's too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so...Love the people who treat you right.  Pray for the ones who don't.  Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it!  Have a garbage-free day!

Faith is not about everything turning out OK.  Faith is about being OK no matter how things turn out.
