Afterlife

A couple made a deal that whoever died first would come back and inform the other of the afterlife.

Their biggest fear was that there was no afterlife.

After a long life, the husband was the first to go, and true to his word he made contact, “Connie….Connie. ”

“Is that you, Joe?”

“Yes, I’ve come back like we agreed.”

“What’s it like?”

“Well, I get up in the morning, I have sex. I have breakfast, off to the golf course, I have sex. I bathe in the sun, and then I have sex twice. I have lunch, another romp around the golf course, then sex pretty much all afternoon. After supper, golf course again. Then have sex until late at night. The next day it starts again.”

“Oh, Joe you surely must be in heaven.”

“Not exactly, I’m a rabbit on a golf course in Arizona.”

The Truth Behind…I Shot The Sheriff

“I Shot The Sheriff” by Bob Marley (1975)

Bob Marley’s song “I Shot the Sheriff” topped the charts worldwide and quickly became an anthem against corruption and injustice. Most people assumed, and Marley himself confirmed, that the “sheriff” mentioned in the song was a metaphor for “elements of wickedness.”

It was only later revealed, in 2011, that there was a deeper, more personal layer to the song’s lyrics. According to Esther Anderson, the music sensation’s former girlfriend, the lyrics were inspired by a disagreement over the use of birth control, which Marley was against. This is especially apparent in the line: “Every time I plant a seed/He said kill it before it grow.”

The story behind….Layla

“Layla” by Derek and the Dominos (1970)

Eric Clapton wrote the song “Layla” during his time with the band Derek and the Dominos. A 7th-century story of unrequited love was used as the song’s inspiration, but it also had another hidden meaning, also consisting of unrequited love.

Eric Clapton Patti Boyd

Eric Clapton wrote the song with Pattie Boyd in mind. Clapton had fallen madly in love with Boyd, however, she was already married to The Beatles musician George Harrison. The couple ended up splitting and in the end, Clapton married Boyd. The song has frequently been called one of the greatest rock songs of all time.

Swann or Joy Covered Bridge

WGN 01-05-05 – Swann or Joy CB – Built in 1933 – Spans Locust Fork Black Warrior River on Swann Bridge Road west of Cleveland, Blount County – 324 feet long, three spans – Town Lattices trusses

The Swann Covered Bridge was built in 1933. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on August 20, 1981. It is currently the longest covered bridge in Alabama. The bridge was built by a crew led by Zelmer C. Tidwell and his uncle Forrest Tidwell, over a scenic gorge of the Locust Fork on property owned by the Swann Farm. It was originally called the ‘Joy Covered Bridge’, as the bridge connected Cleveland with the nearby community of Joy. The bridge was restored by the Blount County Commission in 1979. After the 385-foot Nectar Covered Bridge (also located in Blount County) burned down in 1993, the Swann Covered Bridge became the longest covered bridge existing in Alabama. After a routine inspection, the Swann Covered Bridge was closed in 2009 due to unsafe conditions. Following necessary repairs and upgrades, the Swann Covered Bridge was reopened to motor vehicle traffic on October 22, 2012.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT—FAREWELL TO ENGLAND

From: Hank Ashmore

The Deplorable Infidel

 

FAREWELL TO ENGLAND

This is an interesting “Farewell to England” list of Islamic accomplishments in that country that might give you a better understanding of the insidiousness of Hijrah; that’s the takeover of a nation without going to war. Don’t think for a moment that America is not a target or that there are no American cities where Islamic and Sharia victories and takeovers have already occurred. It’s time for border control, or start planning for a very big “Goodbye American Party!”

Here’s what has already happened to England within a few years of opening their borders without entry control — Here’s how the British have passively succumbed to Muslim invasion:

Mayor of London – Muslim

Mayor of Birmingham – Muslim

Mayor of Leeds – Muslim

Mayor of Sheffield – Muslim

Mayor of Oxford – Muslim

Mayor of Luton – Muslim

Mayor of Oldham – Muslim

Mayor of Rochdale – Muslim

 

All of the following achieved by just Four million Muslims out of the 66 million population:

Over 130 Muslim Sharia Courts.

Over 50 Muslim Sharia Councils.

Muslims Only “No-Go-Areas” across the UK.

Muslim women … 78% don’t work and are on free benefits/housing .

Muslim men … 63% don’t work and are on free benefits/ housing.

Muslim families … 6-8 children planning to go on free benefits/housing.

All UK schools are serving Halal meat.

 

And we, the USA, can’t decide on an immigration policy? One of the ways to combat this is to keep circulating such information around our our United States to inform the uninformed who mainly only listen and read the left leaning radio, television, and newspapers.

I did not see any mention of this in the U.S. media … Did you?

 

WAKE UP AMERICA BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!!!

“If our country is to survive and prosper, we must summon the courage to condemn and reject the liberal agenda, and we had better do it soon.”

-Walter Williams-

 

“You Just Can’t Make This S**T UP” category

You no longer can use the term “convicted criminal” in San Francisco. They are now a “Justice Involved Person”.

 

AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INFIDEL

If the “Squad” is not charged with treason, this country then owes Julius and Ethel Rosenberg one hell of an apology.

 

A SIMPLE TRUTH FOR TODAY

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until a majority of voters discover that they can vote themselves largess out of the public treasury.
