CDC ALERT - Gonorrhea Lectim

Information about Gonorrhea Lectim

The Center for Disease Control has issued a warning about a new virulent strain of this old disease. The disease is called Gonorrhea Lectim. It's pronounced " Gonna re-elect 'im ,"and it is a terrible disease.

The disease is contracted through dangerous and high risk behavior involving putting your cranium up your rectum. Many victims contracted during the last presidential election when they elected Barrack Obama. Liberals are now starting to realize how destructive this sickness is. However at last count 41% of our voting population still has it.

It's sad because Gonorrhea Lectim is easily cured with a new drug just coming on the market called Votemout. It's pronounced "Vote-em-out". You take the first dose in 2011 and don't engage in such behavior again; otherwise, it could become permanent and eventually wipe out all life as we know it in USA.

Please pass this important message on to all those bright folk you really care about.

A recession is when your neighbor loses his job. A depression is when you lose your job. A recovery is when Obama loses his job smile

Westboro Church loses one......

Posted By Greg Shaffer

Bet you didnt hear about this one on the evening news......

Westboro Baptist Church Goes To Mississippi And Loses
Posted by: MacAoidh on Tuesday, April 19, 2011, 18:00

On Saturday USMC Staff Sgt. Jason Rogers, who was killed in action in Afghanistan April 7, was buried in Brandon, Mississippi.

That, by itself, is a sadly unremarkable though certainly noteworthy and solemn occasion for us to mark.

And in fact when Sgt. Rogers' body returned to Brandon it was greeted by hundreds, or perhaps even thousands, of well-wishers who gathered at the roadside to honor the fallen American hero. The dashboard camera from Mississippi state trooper Elmo Townsend's cruiser gives an indication of the scene last Thursday as seen in the video link below.

What is most notable about Sgt. Rogers' funeral in Brandon, however, is what didn't happen.

You see, the troglodytes from Westboro Baptist Church had threatened to spew their poison at Sgt. Rogers' funeral.

But the Westboro mob wasn't on the scene, and Sgt. Rogers was laid to rest without incident thank God.

Why weren't there protestors?

Planning ahead by the locals, as it turns out.

From an Ole Miss sports message board, a tidbit of information...
A couple of days before, one of them (Westboro protestors) ran his mouth at a Brandon gas station and got his arse waxed. Police were called and the beaten man could not give much of a description of who beat him. When they canvassed the station and spoke to the large crowd that had gathered around, no one seemed to remember anything about what had happened.
Rankin County handled this thing perfectly. There were many things that were put into place that most will never know about and at great expense to the county.
Most of the morons never made it out of their hotel parking lot. It seems that certain Rankin county pickup trucks were parked directly behind any car that had Kansas plates in the hotel parking lot and the drivers mysteriously disappeared until after the funeral was over. Police were called but their wrecker service was running behind and it was going to be a few hours before they could tow the trucks so the Kansas plated cars could get out.
A few made it to the funeral but were ushered away to be questioned about a crime they might have possibly been involved in. Turns out, after a few hours of questioning, that they were not involved and they were allowed to go on about their business.

Fred Phelps, the disbarred lawyer and Democrat activist who leads the Westboro congregation, will undoubtedly pursue some form of legal action for the way his people were thwarted in Brandon. Let him try. There isn't a jury in Mississippi which will see things his way.

This is a template for how to handle the Westboro people. If lawsuits don't work, other means will. Whatever it takes to keep them from harassing bereaved military families on the day their fallen loved ones are laid to rest.

UPDATE: Some of the feedback we've received from this piece came along the lines that it's inappropriate to refer to Fred Phelps as a "Democrat activist."

We stand by that characterization. If anything, it's an understatement.

A teacher's story about Stuttering

A teacher is explaining biology to her 4th grade students. "Human beings are the only animals that stutter,' she says

A little girl raises her hand. 'I had a kitty-cat who stuttered.'

The teacher, knowing how precious some of these stories could become,

Asked the girl to describe the incident.

"Well," she began, 'I was in the back yard with my kitty

And the Rottweiler that lives next door got a running start and before we knew it, he jumped over the fence into our yard!'

'That must've been scary,' said the teacher.

'It sure was,' said the little girl.

'My kitty raised her back, went "Ffffff!, Ffffff!, Fffffff," but before she could say 'F**k-off !,' the Rottweiler ate her!

The teacher had to leave the room.

StellarVue M7 mount setup

Posted By Greg Shaffer

Tonight will be 1st light for it......Just got thru setting up on the back deck for some viewing tonight. C11 and Vixen NA140. Have to say it is one smooth, well made mount. I understand there is a new model M150 with a larger capacity. Cant see a need for it myself....This thing is smooth as butter with 2 fully setup scopes weighing in at close to 50lbs at least. I believe I am really going to enjoy using it. There are those times when you just dont want to go thru setting up goto's etc....
