Great posting. No one denied unless they choose. Truly in need hopefully taken on by faith based ngo's or simply ngo's. Where real need is evident then assistance will be available.

Been gone a while, so had to come back with a lil humor.To:

Marines are always so tactful!

A young Naval Officer was in a terrible car accident, but due to the heroics of the hospital staff the only permanent injury was the loss of one ear.

Since he wasn't physically impaired he remained in the military and eventually became an Admiral. However, during his career he was always sensitive about his appearance.

One day the Admiral was interviewing two Navy Master Chiefs and a Marine Sergeant Major for his personal staff.

The first Master Chief was a Surface Navy type and it was a great interview. At the end of the interview the Admiral asked him, "Do you notice anything different about me?"

The Master Chief answered, "Why yes sir. I couldn't help but notice you are missing your starboard ear, so I don't know whether this impacts your hearing on that side."

The Admiral got very angry at this lack of tact and threw him out of his office.

The next candidate, an Aviation Master Chief, when asked this same question, answered, "Well yes sir, you seem to be short one ear."

The Admiral threw him out also.

The third interview was with the Marine Sergeant Major. He was articulate, extremely sharp, and seemed to know more than the two Master Chiefs put together. The Admiral wanted this guy, but went ahead with the same question.

"Do you notice anything different about me?"

To his surprise the Sergeant Major said, "Yes, sir. You wear contact lenses."

The Admiral was impressed and thought to himself, what an incredibly tactful Marine. "And how do you know that?" the Admiral asked.

The Sergeant Major replied, "Well sir, it's pretty hard to wear glasses with only one fuckin' ear."

Well folks, it's Presidents day. From the 1st George to the most recent George, we have had good and bad Presidents, each of us has our own opinion as to which is which. We have exceeded all expectations as a nation, and we can never let dim or die the underlying love of freedom which has sustained this, our, United States of America.

Why let them in the country? They are not here yet, and they have decided anti US stances.

I'm with you on thanks. We, in the USA, have it so much better than most of the world. I think about it and I scratch my head. So many other countries could have been so much greater than they are. Freedom is indeed the catalyst. How bout we keep it?

Kathy, why allow this troll to push your buttons? Ignore the jackanapes and be rid of him.

Folks, I am both humbled and exstatic. Chet Edwards, Pelosi's pet, is gone. Bill Flores wins Texas 17th, my district. Thank you Ma Bell for the telephone, and I guess Al Gore for the internet. As one who has had to do all my work from the house these were good tools. Believe in God, find trust worthy cohorts, and do all you can and you can see your goals achieved. Now to get my retirees going to keep our new congresscritters in line.
