“Let me get this straight. We were “gifted” with a health care plan we were forced to purchase and “taxed” if we didn’t, written by a committee whose chairman said he didn’t understand it, declared deficit neutral by a CBO that only underestimated SS and Medicare costs by about 100 trillion dollars, give or take a few trillion, passed by a Congress that never read it but exempted themselves from it, gaveled into law by a Speaker who stated “we have to pass the damn thing to find out what’s in it”, signed into law by a President who smoked, supported by a first diet guru with a derriere the size of a battleship beam, exclaimed to be a big friggin deal by a sleepy VP with Attention Deficit Disorder and a really bad plug job, considered to be such a great plan by the unions that hundreds of them supported it, then promptly applied for and were granted exemptions from it, enforced by an Attorney General with a terrible case of amnesia, policed by 16,000 new IRS agents who were “here to help you”, with funding administered by a Treasury Secretary who “forgot” to pay his taxes, overseen by a Surgeon General who’s obese, and financed by a country that’s broke. What could have possibly gone wrong?”

Barbara Walters, on one of her 20/20 broadcasts, did a story on gender roles in Kabul, Afghanistan several years before the Afghan conflict. She noted that women customarily walked five paces behind their husbands.
She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk behind their husbands. Despite the overthrow of the oppressive Taliban regime, the women now seem happy to maintain the old custom.
The ultra-liberal Ms. Walters, seeking proof the Afghani women were repressed, approached one of the Afghani women and asked, ‘Why do you now seem content with an old custom that you once tried so desperately to change?’
The woman looked Ms. Walters straight in the eyes, and without hesitation said, “Land mines.”
THE SPHINX ENDORSES BARRETT FOR THE NEW SUPREME OPENING. THE OTHERS ARE SWING VOTES LIKE THE RETIRING KENNEDY. WE SHOULD ALSO MENTION THAT KAGAN WHO OBAMA APPOINTED AND WAS APPROVED, HAD NO EXPERIENCE AS A JUDGE. NEITHER DID RUTH BADER PREHISTORIC.
A plane passed through a severe storm. The turbulence was awful, andthings went from bad to worse when one wing was struck by lightning.
One woman lost it completely. She stood up in the front of the plane and screamed, ‘I’m too youngto die!’ Then she yelled, ‘If I’m going to die, I wantmy last minutes on earth to be memorable! Is there anyone on thisplane who can make me feel like a WOMAN?’
For a moment, there was silence. Everyone stared at the desperatewoman in the front of the plane.
Then the cowboy from Texas stood up inthe rear of the plane.
He was handsome, tall, well built, with dark brown hair and hazel eyes. Slowly, he started to walk up the aisle, unbuttoning his shirt as he went, one button at a time. No one moved. He removed his shirt. Muscles rippled across his chest.
