The Reverend Wright

explains it all.

Mr. Wright, who has acted as Mr. Obama’s spiritual mentor and retired in February as pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, said that he has never heard Mr. Obama repeat any of his controversial statements.

“Absolutely not,” Mr. Wright said. “I don’t talk to him about politics. And so he had a political event, he goes out as a politician and says what he has to say as a politician. I continue to be a pastor who speaks to the people of God about the things of God.”

You know, this guy has a tin ear. A HUGE tin ear!

I mean, this is a flat out admission that he was asking God to damn America. Remember?

"God Bless America? No! No! No! God damn America."

And Hussein could set there???

And Bill Moyers just let him slide? Figures, eh!


Sad but true

As you may have heard, each of us will be getting a tax rebate check to
stimulate the economy.

If we spend that money at Wal-Mart, all the money will go to China.
If we spend it on gasoline it will go to the Arabs. If we purchase a
computer it will go to India. If we purchase fruits and vegetables it
will go to Honduras, and Guatemala. If we purchase a good car it will go
to Japan. If we purchase useless stuff it will go to Taiw an and none of
it will help the American economy.

We need to keep that money here in America. The only way to keep that
money here at home is to spend it at yard sales, since those are the
only businesses left owned by Americans !!

My thanks to Shawn in Denver!

Tax Refunds and other offers

Paul Basel comments that he too received an invitation to expedite his tax refund, but his did not have a link. So he would have had to send an email. He has, of course declined, as have I.

But I do have other financial hopes. There are several gentlemen from Africa, mostly from Nigeria and Niger, who regularly make offers for me to manage their money for them. But for now I am concentrating on winning the Lottery. Why just last month I managed to get one (1) of the six numbers correct!

And then there's the stock market and other forms of gambling.

Years ago I read somewhere that the average investor would be better off taking his money to Las Vegas and playing blackjack. The reasoning was simple.

1. He knows more about blackjack than the stock market.

2. He will probably receive free adult beverages, and perhaps free food, lodging and other entertainment.

3. The scenery will be much better. Much better.......

4. When he loses the management will be more sympathetic than his broker.

Of course sympathy is also found between sh*t and syphilis in the dictionary......

Which may be unfair to the casino and the broker. Neither want you busted because if you loose your ability to play, then they have no customer. They just want their share.....
