And the LATEST Fear Mongering…

Obama came out tonight and said SS, retiree and Medicare/Medicaid checks won’t go out if the debt ceiling is not passed… sigh…


How about some humor?  Questionable humor at best, but what the hey…

 I planted some bird seed. A bird came up. Now I don’t know what to feed it.

I had amnesia once—or twice

I went to San Francisco. I found someone’s heart. Now what?
Protons have mass? I didn’t even know they were Catholic.
All I ask is a chance to prove that money can’t make me happy.
If the world were a logical place, men would be the ones who ride horses sidesaddle.
What is a  “free” gift? Aren’t all gifts free?
They told me I was gullible and I believed them.
Teach a child to be polite and courteous in the home and, when he grows up, he’ll never be able to merge his car onto the freeway.
Experience is the thing you have left when everything else is gone.
One nice thing about egotists: they don’t talk about other people.
My weight is perfect for my height–which varies.
I used to be indecisive. Now I’m not sure.
How can there be self-help “groups”?
If swimming is so good for your figure, how do you explain whales?
Show me a man with both feet firmly on the ground, and I’ll show you a man who can’t get his pants off.
Is it me –or do buffalo wings taste like chicken?

And go over to An Ordinary American‘s Blog and watch a pilot save $20M by landing an F-16 engine out. That ol’ boy done good 🙂 


And the LATEST Fear Mongering… — 23 Comments

  1. BOO

    Yeah, I’m really starting to realize that politicians like to cut programs that hurt most first. It’s a way to punish people into thinking the government shouldn’t have their money.

  2. North- Sorree 🙂

    45- Yep…

    Rev- You’re welcome!

    Ed- That one was too good not to link!

    Keads- Yep, he earned his flight pay this month.

    Julie- You’re welcome, hope your Dad is better.

  3. Good job by that pilot. His flight leader seemed excited.

    Social Security? Paid into it for 48 years. Guess it was never my money. Trust funds are only as safe as the Trustees. Guess who they are.

  4. Only paid into SS for thirty nine years. And my retirement may be on the chopping block. Something fishy about that promise made in 73, when I put my right hand in the air and said………so help me God.

  5. I am so very tired of the 0bama’s bull.

    Oh, the money one works for me.

    Thanks for the humor, we need it more right now than ever.

    That was one ultra-cool F-16 jock!!!!! Making the Air Force proud.

  6. “If swimming is so good for your figure, how do you explain whales?”
    Which explains why Eskimos are always sticking me when I am swimming.

    These were funny as heck!

    But the highlight was that pilot landing the brick. Holy Sheep Shit!
    My heart was racing watching that!
    I knew there was a reason I drove boats!!!

  7. This was predictable. However, after all the money the feds stole from Social security that was replaced with now-apparently worthless I.O.U’s.

    Social security was never the problem here. Government spending was.

    Although, I almost always have considered it a dubious plan, many millions of Americans (all of us “documented” Americans pay into it) paid into this plan all their working lives. I consider this a legal binding contract between the Government and U.S. population. The American taxpayer never had a choice as to whether or not to pay into this system. Neither should the plan be subject to manipulation by politicians.

    But yet the “Democraps” do it anyway. It’s called fear mongering.

    Nor should it be on the chopping block by the Republicans.

    And I hope anyone involved in this from either side burns in HELL for this reason alone. (includes Tea Party folk as well)

  8. Maybe if our politicians had the character of that pilot we wouldn’t be screwed right now.

    That video was insane!

    And Obama is complaining and fearmongering about spending cuts when HE and his DEMOCRAT buddies caused the problem. They are the ones who spent the country into insolvency, not us.

  9. Wait? What! SS won’t be paid out if the debt ceiling is not raised. But we were told SS payments went into a lock box or some big vault in DC. That’s not true? Because the Dems made fun of GWB when he pointed that out.

    And we were told that SS was budget neutral and didn’t had to our debt. If that is true, why does it depend on raising the debt ceiling?

  10. Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.
    – Mark Twain,

  11. WSF/ORPO- Yep, 45 years here… sigh…

    PH- Yep 🙁

    ADM- Yep, he done good!

    Mrs. C- Cause she’s cheap??? 🙂

    Danny- Point 🙂

    Matt- Agreed!

    Laura- 🙂

    Mike- TRUE!!! sigh…

    Andy- Fearmongering and lies… nothing new here. And yeah, supposedly SS funds are safe, except they’ve been borrowed against for years to ‘balance’ the budget.

    Chris- /snort/ Yep…
