Just Chill……Said Bill

WRITTEN BY: BILL BOWSER…. FROM CINCINNATI, OHIO

I believe anger management is vitally important, but it isn’t taught in school, or anywhere else, it seems.

As a teenager I was surprised to learn that anger, like one’s other emotions, is under one’s control. When we are annoyed by someone we say they made us mad, but that’s really not the case. We choose to be angry, probably because that’s the easiest reaction to almost any situation.

Anger is a very destructive response to an annoyance which frequently results in irrational violent behavior, which soon turns into regret. Why do so many people react to an annoyance by doing something to make the perpetrator mad? Don’t they realize that it is never a good idea to anger someone else? Anger and stupid behavior go hand-in-hand.

When we blame our irrational behavior on someone who “ made us angry”, we’re saying that this person somehow took control of our mind, which is nonsense.

It used to be that parents taught their kids to slowly count to ten before reacting to being annoyed by someone or something. I don’t know if anyone does this any more. This was good advice, but it’s not enough, as evidenced by the road rage incidents you frequently hear about today.

I think there should be more attention focused on this problem, because it can easily solved. Chill out everybody.

“Whatever is begun in anger ends in shame.” — Benjamin Franklin

 

 

A Lot of Wisdom Here

I thought this was worth sharing. It starts with Toby Keith playing golf with Clint Eastwood. That sets the stage.

At one point, Eastwood said to Keith, “I turn 88 on Monday.”

“What are you going to do?” Keith asked.

“I’m going to shoot a movie,” Eastwood replied, with filming scheduled to begin the following week.

“What keeps you going?” Keith asked him.

“I get up every day and don’t let the old man in,” Eastwood said.

“I’m writing this down right now,” Keith replied.

Keith didn’t ask him if he could contribute a song, Keith just went home and wrote it, sent it to Clint and hoped that he would consider it. And, he did.

Here it is:

Don’t forget the lesson learned on 11/8/16 come 11/3/20! Without the Electoral College in place the Popular Vote would have placed Hillary Clinton in the oval office. (OMG)

 

Leave our Electoral College Process Alone…….Why should this tiny blue area decide who America should have as president?  It should not!!!

Best explanation of a politician I’ve ever heard

While stitching a cut on the hand of a 75 year old farmer, whose hand was caught in the squeeze gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.

Eventually the topic got around to politicians and their role as our leaders.

The old farmer said, “Well, as I see it, most politicians are Post Turtles.

The doctor asked, “What is a post turtle?”

The old rancher said, “When you are driving down a country road and you notice a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that’s a Post Turtle.”

The old farmer saw the puzzled look on the doctor’s face so he continued to explain. “You know he didn’t get up there by himself, he doesn’t belong up there, he doesn’t know what to do while he is up there, he is elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of dumb ass put him up there to begin with.”

Think About This:

1. Cows
2. The Constitution
3. The Ten Commandments

 

COWS
Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a single cow, born in Canada almost three years prior, directly to the stall where she slept in the state of Washington? They even tracked her calves to their stalls. BUT….they are unable to locate 20 million illegal aliens who are wandering around our country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow.

THE CONSTITUTION
There is still talk about drafting a Constitution for Iraq…why don’t we give them ours? It was written by a lot of really smart guys and it has worked for over 200 years. After all,  we are not using it anymore.

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS
The real reason we can’t have the Ten Commandments posted in the courthouse is this….you cannot post:
‘Thou Shall Not Steal,  Thou Shall Not Commit Adultery & Thou Shall Not Bear False witness’
in a building full of lawyers, judges, and politicians. It creates a hostile work environment.

Two Sisters….

 
  

Two sisters, one blonde and one brunette, inherit the family ranch.    Unfortunately, after just a few years, they are in financial trouble.

 In order to keep the bank from repossessing the ranch, they need to purchase a bull so that they can breed their own stock.

Upon leaving with $600, the brunette tells her sister, ‘When I get there, if I decide to buy the bull, I’ll contact you to drive out after me and haul it home.’

The brunette arrives at the man’s ranch, inspects the bull, and decides she wants to buy it.  The man tells her that he will sell it for $599, no less.  After paying him, she drives to the nearest town to send her sister a telegram to tell her the news.

She walks into the telegraph office, and says, ‘I want to send a telegram to my sister telling her that I’ve bought a bull for our ranch.  I need her to hitch the trailer to our pickup truck and drive out here so we can haul it home.’

The telegraph operator explains that he’ll be glad to help her, then adds, it  will cost 99 cents a word.  Well, after paying for the bull, the brunette realizes that she’ll only be able to send her sister one word.

After a few minutes of thinking, she nods and says, ‘I want you to send her the  word ‘comfortable.’

The operator shakes his head. ‘How is she ever going to know that you want her to hitch the trailer to your pickup truck and drive out here to haul that bull back  to your ranch if you send her just the word ‘comfortable?’

The brunette explains, ‘My sister’s blonde.  The word is big. She’ll read it very slowly.

‘com-for-da-bul’.
