Justice Cat:  It sure is, here is a woman from Brazil protecting her family.  I can almost hear her ask if he feels lucky.

The Air Force is as incompetent as  armored car drivers.  Lately,  both have been leaving fortunes on the highway.

TEXAS!!!!

A young Texan boy grew up wanting to be a lawman. He grew up big, 6′ 2″,
strong as a longhorn, and fast as a mustang. He could shoot a bottle cap
tossed in the air at 40 paces.

When he finally came of age, he applied to where he had only dreamed
of working: the West Texas Sheriff’s Department.
After a series of tests and interviews, the Chief Deputy finally
called him into his office for the young man’s last interview.

The Chief Deputy said, “You’re a big strong kid and you can really
shoot. So far, your qualifications all look good, but we have, what
you might call, an “Attitude Suitability Test”,that you must
take before you can be accepted. We just don’t let anyone carry our
badge, son.”

Then, sliding a service pistol and a box of ammo across the desk, the
Chief said, “Take this pistol and go out and shoot:

six illegal aliens,
six ambulance-chasing lawyers,
six meth dealers,
six Muslim extremists,
six liberal Democrats,
and a rabbit.”

“Why the rabbit?” queried the applicant.

“You pass,” said the Chief Deputy. “When can you start?”

I LOVE TEXAS!

THE SPHINX—-HOPE AND THINGS

The Editor:   Is there hope somewhere in this rat hole, LL ?

That Is All Humans Have Cat:   There is, but it is tough to recognize.  Here are some almost extinct wolves that might be saved.

THE SPHINX—–B’s

The Editor:   What is going on, LL ?   What about the news ?

B Cat:  I’m tired of the regular news, it hasn’t changed in months.  Here are some B’s that our loyal readers should be aware of.  The first is one of the most famous B’s.  Shakespeare is second only to the Bible in wisdom.

THE SPHINX—COFFEE AND OTHER THINGS

The Editor:  Is coffee a big deal, LL ?

Caffeine Cat:  It is, but I don’t need the stuff.   Here are some coffee shacks in the news.   Personally, any place that serves food/drink should have bathrooms open to everyone,  and songs without foul language and the n-word being played.
