A man died and went to heaven. As he stood in front of St. Peter at the Pearly Gates, he saw a huge wall of clocks behind him.

He asked, "What are all those clocks?"

St. Peter answered, "Those are Lie-Clocks. Everyone on Earth has a Lie-Clock. Every time you lie, the hands on your clock will move.

Oh," said the man, "whose clock is that?" "That's Mother Teresa's. The hands have never moved, indicating that she never told a lie.

Incredible," said the man. "And whose clock is that one?"

St. Peter responded, "That's Ronald Reagan's clock. The hands have moved twice, telling us that Reagan told only two lies in his entire life."

"Where's Obama's clock?" asked the man.

"Obama's clock is in Jesus' office. He's using it as a ceiling fan."

Gonna go out on a limb here and say this is the single most ridiculous event to come out of the anti-gun crowd in history. Hard to believe anyone who thinks this is ok is considered sane by ANYONE.

Telling a deaf child he has to change the sign for his name because it looks like a GUN? Unbelievably stupid and embarrassing to know we have citizens this damn clueless AND in charge of educating our children.

Indomitable Spirit.......

Posted By Greg Shaffer

Been watching a lot of the talent shows for the last 3 or 4 years.....This 13 yr old girl was on the opening night of the X Factor's new season the other night. Not much brings tears to my eyes but this one did. This girls spirit and her mothers obvious love and support ripped a few out of me. AND she can sing too......

Clearing up the confusion.......

Posted By Greg Shaffer

MAYBE THIS WILL CLEAR UP SOME CONFUSION..........

I became confused when I heard the word "Service" used with these agencies:

1. Internal Revenue "Service".

2. U.S. Postal "Service".

3. Telephone "Service".

4. Cable T.V. "Service".

5. Civil "Service".

6. State, City, County & Public "Service".

7. Customer "Service".

This is not what I thought "Service" meant.

But today, I overheard two 2 farmers talking, and one of them said he
had hired a bull to "Service" a few cows.

BAM!!! It all came into focus.

"Now I understand what all those agencies are doing".

I hope that YOU are now just as enlightened as I am.

Liberal Icon Joe Klein Savages CNN, Calls Fox 'Only Option' For News

I would never have thought a uber-liberal like Joe Klein would call Fox the only option for news!

Via the Daily Caller:

Time magazine columnist Joe Klein called CNN "an embarrassment to our profession," surprising a New York City audience on Sunday by declaring Fox News "the only option" for straight news at 6 p.m.

Hardly a rabid right-winger, Klein nevertheless felt compelled to lament the decline of liberal media bastions like CNN and MSNBC during a conversation with Jeff Greenfield at the 92nd Street Y.

A little something......

For the resident liberals to chew on.......

While I am sure this is not all inclusive, it is a good start towards compiling the problems with our Liar in Chief in the WH.

WHEN - he set into motion a plan to take over the control of all energy in the United States through Cap and Trade, people said it didn't matter.

WHEN - he finally completed his transformation of America into a Socialist State, people woke up--- but it was too late. Add these up one by one and you get a score that points to the fact that Barrack Hussein Obama is determined to turn America into a Marxist-Socialist society. All of the items in the preceding paragraphs have been put into place. All can be documented very easily. Before you disavow this, do an Internet search. The last paragraph alone is not yet cast in stone. You and I will write that paragraph. Will it read as above or will it be a happier ending for most of America?

Don't just belittle the opposition. Search for the truth. We all need to pull together or watch the demise of a free democratic society. We need to seek the truth and take action for it will keep us FREE. Our biggest enemy is not China, Russia, North Korea or Iran. Our biggest enemy is our complacent selves. The government will not help, so we need to do it ourselves.

Question....will you delete this, or pass it on to others who don't know about Obama's actions and plans for the USA, so that they may know how to vote in November, 2014 and the ensuing years?

It's your decision. Does IT matter?......AND WHEN?
