No matter what side you are on in the gun control controversy - every American  needs to know the current law of our Land and why ALL of  the Constitutional Amendments and the  Bill Of Rights were passed.

Comic Relief - Retired Old Guy

 1. I'm not saying let's go kill all the stupid people.  I'm just saying let's  remove all the warning labels and let the problem work itself out.

  2. I changed my car horn to gunshot sounds.  People move out of the way much faster now.

  3. You can tell a lot about a woman's mood just by her hands.  If she is holding a gun, she's probably ticked off!

  4. Gone are the days when girls cooked like their mothers.  Now they drink like their fathers.

  5. You know that tingly little feeling you get when you really like someone you've just met?  That's common sense leaving your body.

  6. I don't like making plans for the day. Because then the word "premeditated" gets thrown around in the courtroom.

 7. I didn't make it to the gym today. That makes 1,500 days in a row.

 8. I decided to change calling the bathroom the John and renamed it the Jim.  I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.
9. Dear paranoid people who check behind shower curtains for murderers.  If you find one, what's your plan?
10. Everyone has a right to be stupid.  Politicians just abuse the privilege

America's Newspapers - Who Reads Them

1. The Wall Street Journal is read by the people who run the country. 

2. The Washington Post is read by people who think they run the country. 

3. The New York Times is read by people who think they should run the country,    and who are very good at crossword puzzles. 

4. USA Today is read by people who think they ought to run the country but don't  really understand The New York Times. They do, however, like their statistics    shown in pie charts 

5. The Los Angeles Times is read by people who wouldn't mind running the country, if they could find the time -- and if they didn't have to leave Southern    California to do it. 

6.  The Boston Globe is read by people whose parents used to run the country and did a poor job of it, thank you very much. 

7.  The New York Daily News is read by people who aren't too sure who's running the country and don't really care as long as they can get a seat on the train. 

 8.  The New York Post is read by people who don't care who is running the country  as long as they do something really scandalous, preferably while intoxicated. 

 9.  The Chicago Tribune is read by people that are in prison that used to run the state, & would like to do so again, as would their constituents that are    currently free on bail. 

10. The Miami Herald is read by people who are running another country, but need the baseball scores. 

 11.  The San Francisco Chronicle is read by people who aren't sure if there is acountry or that anyone is running it; but if so, they oppose all that they stand for.  There are occasional exceptions if the leaders are gay,handicapped, minority, feminist, atheist dwarfs who also happen to be illegal aliens from any other country or galaxy, provided of course, that they are not    Republicans. 

12.  The National Enquirer is read by people trapped in line at the grocery store. 

13.  The Seattle Times is read by people who have recently caught a fish and need something to wrap it in.

Liberalism At Its Best - Why Is Any Of This A Surprise To Anyone?

Low wage workers in Seattle who spent months agitating for a city-wide $15-per-hour minimum wage were quite successful in their quest. But many have suddenly found that the new rate has had unexpected consequences.

Some workers across the city are left telling bosses to give them fewer hours at the higher wage because a full week’s earnings now puts them past the threshold for some welfare payments such as food stamps and assistance with rent.
Of course, one of the things that supporters of the higher wage said was that they wanted to help lift min. wage workers out of poverty and welfare.
Only last week, for instance, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti claimed that a $15 min. wage in his city would lift 600,000 out of poverty. Self-avowed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) a candidate for the Democrat nomination in 2016, also recently claimed that a $15 min. wage would “lift millions” of Americans out of poverty, off welfare, and into the buying public.
But now some workers in Seattle are finding that the higher wage is forcing them off the welfare programs they would rather stay enrolled in and, instead of celebrating their higher income, they are imposing fewer work hours on themselves in order to stay on assistance.
Seattle’s KIRO-TV recently spoke to a nursing nonprofit that admitted that some workers are trying to cut hours and earn less to avoid losing assistance. In another case, a local radio station has been talking about the story.
“If they cut down their hours to stay on those subsidies because the $15 per hour minimum wage didn’t actually help get them out of poverty, all you’ve done is put a burden on the business and given false hope to a lot of people,” said KIRO-FM’s Jason Rantz said this week.
There have been other unforeseen consequences to the higher wage. Some restaurants are tacking on a 15 percent surcharge onto customer’s bills in order to avoid firing workers.
Other stores, restaurants, and small businesses are simply closing down because they can’t afford the wage hike. By March of this year, for instance, restaurant closings increased at a much higher than average rate in Seattle.
Many restaurants noted that the new wage put labor costs at nearly 50 percent of operating costs, and that made profit margins disappear.

Correcting The Record

First Lady Michelle Obama reminded attendees of a naturalization ceremony Wednesday that the Founding Fathers weren't born in America. The ceremony for 50 new U.S. citizens was held at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.

She said during her speech, referring to the Declaration of Independence,
"It's amazing that just a few feet from here where I'm standing are the signatures of the 56 Founders who put their names on a Declaration that changed the course of history, and like the 50 of you, NONE OF THEM were born American - they became American."

For the record:
  • Benjamin Franklin was born in Pennsylvania;
  • Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and James Madison were born in Virginia.
  • John Adams was born in Massachusetts.
  • Only eight of the 56 were not born in America.
The first lady is a Harvard graduate who is out of touch -doesn't  personallly do her homework  - relies 100% on her staff who make up stuff that is politically correct to make her sound good regardless of the facts.  
As John Wayne said, "Life's tough. It's tougher when you're stupid!!"
