A man lost an arm when his golf cart rolled over on him on a downward
slope. He became very depressed because he loved to play golf
So one day in his despair, he decided to commit suicide and end it all.
He got on an elevator and went to the top of a building to jump off.
He was standing on the ledge looking down and saw this man down on the
sidewalk skipping along, whooping and kicking up his heels. He looked
closer and saw that this man didn’t have any arms at all.
He started thinking, “What am I doing up here feeling sorry for
myself? I still have one good arm to do things with.”
He thought, “There goes a man with no arms skipping down the sidewalk
so happy, and going on with his life.”
So he hurried down to the sidewalk and caught up with the man with no
arms. He told him how glad he was to see him because he had lost one
of his arms and felt useless and was going to kill himself. He thanked
him for saving his life and said he knew he could make it with one arm
if the guy could go on with no arms.
The man with no arms began dancing and whooping and kicking up his heels again.
The guy asked, “Why are you so happy anyway?”
He said, “I’M NOT HAPPY MY BALLS ITCH”!!!
Heartwarming stories like this can just bring a tear to your eye.
Great story Lee…..Thanks!
Bud and his truck
A cowboy named Bud was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous
pasture in Montana when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced toward him
out of a cloud of dust. The driver, a young man in a Brioni® suit,
Gucci® shoes, RayBan® sunglasses and YSL® tie, leaned out the window
and asked the cowboy, “If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves
you have in your herd, will you give me a calf?”
Bud looks at the man, who obviously is a yuppie, then looks at his
peacefully grazing herd and calmly answers, “Sure, why not?”
The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell® notebook computer,
connects it to his Apple i phone, and surfs to a NASA page on the
Internet, where he calls up a GPS satellite to get an exact fix on his
location which he then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans the
area in an ultra-high-resolution photo.
The young man then opens the digital photo in Adobe Photoshop® and
exports it to an image processing facility in Hamburg, Germany …
Within seconds, he receives an email on his Apple ipad® that the image
has been processed and the data stored. He then accesses an MS-SQL®
database through an ODBC connected Excel® spreadsheet with email on
his Galaxy S5® and, after a few minutes, receives a response.
Finally, he prints out a full-color, 150-page report on his hi-tech,
miniaturized HP LaserJet® printer, turns to the cowboy and says, “You
have exactly 1,586 cows and calves.”
“That’s right. Well, I guess you can take one of my calves,” says Bud.
He watches the young man select one of the animals and looks on with
amusement as the young man stuffs it into the trunk of his car.
Then Bud says to the young man, “Hey, if I can tell you exactly what
your business is, will you give me back my calf?”
The young man thinks about it for a second and then says, “Okay, why not?”
“You’re a Congressman for the U.S. Government”, says Bud.
“Wow! That’s correct,” says the yuppie, “but how did you guess that?”
“No guessing required.” answered the cowboy. “You showed up here even
though nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I already
knew, to a question I never asked. You used millions of dollars worth
of equipment trying to show me how much smarter than me you are; and
you don’t know a thing about how working people make a living – or
about cows, for that matter. This is a herd of sheep.”
“Now give me back my dog.”
AND THAT FOLKS IS WHAT THE PROBLEM IS ALL ABOUT.
A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF LIBERALS WANTING TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR OWN, “FROM CRADLE TO GRAVE”……….Papa Mike
But the case rests on the presence of trace amounts of a chemical and ignores the strongest evidence on coffee drinking.
In the coming months a judge in California will decide whether coffee should be listed as a possible carcinogen throughout the state. The court decision is the result of a 2010 lawsuit brought by an NGO, the Council for Education and Research on Toxics, against the biggest coffee sellers charging that the presence of trace amounts of a chemical pose a threat to the health of coffee drinkers.
The chemical in question is acrylamide, which is formed when coffee beans are roasted. Under California’s Proposition 65, businesses must notify the public if a product contains any of the 65 chemicals that have been linked to adverse health effects, including cancer and reproductive abnormalities.
Coffee is only the latest example of a trend that has become all too common. Activists who profess concern for human health and the environment latch on to an isolated finding – in this case the presence of trace amounts of a contaminant in coffee – and proceed to mount a well-orchestrated campaign to protect the public from the theoretical threat. In the process they use the issue to raise their profile and solicit funds. Similar campaigns have involved the herbicide glyphosate and genetically-engineered crops, BPA, and other substances.
The distinguishing feature of these campaigns is that they isolate a factoid from its scientific context and use it to instill fear in the public and to give bureaucratic regulators a new threat to regulate.
In the case of coffee, what is most egregious and problematic is that, while focusing on trace amounts of acrylamide in coffee and on the results of animal studies, the campaign ignores an abundance of solid evidence that has accumulated over decades concerning the health effects of coffee-drinking in humans. Even many commentators on this wrong-headed campaign fail to appreciate the weight of the epidemiologic evidence exculpating coffee.
Aaron Feis was the right man in the right place at the right time, but he was legally prevented from using the right, constitutionally protected tool to do the job. Mr. Feis was shot on Feb. 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, shielding students from a killer with his own body. Ultimately, he and 16 other people, mainly students, died. Mr. Feis was truly a remarkable and courageous man.
Most media reports have focused on his after-school job as a Stoneman Douglas High football coach (here, here, here, here, and here) – but, on Wednesday afternoon, Mr. Feis was doing his day job as a school guard. Mr. Feis was legally disarmed by the federal government in his attempt to save potentially dozens of children from murder. MORE
PLEASE NOTICE IN THE “MUST SEE VIDEO” BELOW THAT CONGRESSMAN JASON CHAFFETZ DOES NOT USE THE WORD “MEXICAN” IN HIS VIDEO. HE IS REFERING TO ALL “DREAMERS” & “ILLEGAL” ALIENS NO MATTER WHAT THEIR COUNTRY OF ORIGIN IS………..Papa Mike

I wonder if Chairman Jason Chaffetz retired because he couldn’t take this policy anymore. The example Chaffetz gives using the Notre Dame football stadium is “jaw dropping”!! Approximately 800,000 people have been approved for DACA since it began and roughly 690,000 are currently enrolled in the program, according to the latest federal figures………….Papa Mike
Granting amnesty to children who entered our country illegally seems to dominate every news program. Attempting to attach “reform” to a bill to fund the government (federal and military) was a cheap trick by liberals to pass another dangerous law to reward those who break our laws to live in this country, and then be subsidized by our tax money and overcrowding our ( schools, hospitals Papa Mike ) and especially PRISONS!
It is very annoying to watch boneheads like Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and mayors of sanctuary cities try to make us feel guilty for enforcing our immigration laws and stemming the flood of undocumented aliens. While we have compassion for “Dreamers” and consider changes to legislation for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), we should review the short video clip from from a congressional hearing in 2016.
Congressman Jason Chaffetz was Chairman of the House Oversight and Congressional Reform Committee during the Obama years. His presentation details disturbing statistics relating to illegal aliens.
Please remember that this video was recorded in congress
in 2016 under the Obama Administration.

After a high school mass shooting that killed 17 people in Florida, one man says he will be the change he wants to see in this world.
On Friday, Ben Dickmann surrendered his AR-FiveSeven rifle into the Broward Sheriff’s Office in Tamarac, Florida. He posted photos of the process and wrote, “I could have easily sold this rifle, but no person needs this.”
Dickmann referred to himself as “a responsible, highly trained gun owner,” but claimed the rifle is not a “tool” he has use for.
Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel with Hillary Clinton
The video was uncovered by Gabe Hoffman, producer of An Open Secret, a documentary on pedophilia in Hollywood.
YouTube video from 2012, girl accuses Broward Sherriff Scott Israel of having an affair with her, abortion at age 17. If the accusation was a lie, shouldn’t Israel have sued, or at least had lawyers threaten her to take the video down? What do you think? https://t.co/gCbFCeSBRA
In a series of three videos uploaded to a channel called “Barry Israel,” the unidentified woman claims to have been in a six month long relationship with Israel. In the videos, she addresses Israel directly — seeming scorned and angry.
Hi Scott, it’s me again. You know that at 17, because of you, I had to have an abortion. Now I’m finding out that you have three kids — and a kid from another marriage, and a wife of 20 years and you’re happily married. Are you serious?” the woman asks.
The description for the video reads:
“You know about the illegitimate child of Broward County Sheriff’s candidate Scott Israel. The happily married father of triplets, also had a girlfriend who had an abortion. Scott’s family and friends know nothing about this ‘friend’ he kept on the side for six-months.
Integrity? That’s Scott Israel. Illegitimate children? That’s Scott Israel. A much younger girlfriend on the side? That’s Scott Israel. A former girlfriend who had to have an abortion? That’s Scott Israel.
When voting on November 6th, please vote Scott Israel for Broward County Sheriff.
Paid for and approved by Friends of ScottIsreal2012 – www.scottisraelforsheriff2012.com”
The video was unearthed as Sheriff Israel has began using his position to lobby for Democratic policies in the wake of last week’s deadly school shooting.
Israel’s wife Susan made her own video responding to the allegations however, and accused her husband’s opponent of hiring an actress to make the allegations.
I was gonna write about this but Ron did it better. One of my readers wanted me to make this African speed skater my Asshole of the Week last week.
The coin toss, perhaps the simplest and most incorruptible means of random selection, is now racist, according to “Reverend” Jesse Jackson.
J.H.F.C.! How could ANY method be any LESS racist than a friggin coin flip. Good Gravy! It’s 50/50, you friggin moron.
ANOTHER reason why I can’t get interested in sports any more. Disgusted me when the Olympics allowed pro basketball, tennis, golf, and other players into the games. That was utter Bullshit!
Then there was that black-power fist crap, and the massacre of the Jewish athletes by “Palestinians,” and the jerks who publicly declared that they weren’t doing it for the country, but for themselves. Never mind the government interference with special facilities, hormone treatments, and so on.
Of course the NFL “Kneegroes” refusing to respect the flag/anthem because of a friggin myth popularized by black racists.
And now a black athlete (speed skater) claims that the coin toss (to which he had already agreed) to choose whether he or a white female would carry the flag in the opening ceremonies was racist, depriving him of his “right” to carry it.
Holy F—ing wow! Betcha if HE’d won the toss, some women’s group would’ve claimed the coin toss is sexist.
What the fletcher’s F—K does the political, racist, economic, or any other opinion by the athletes have to do with the competition!!
I don’t need OR want ANY athlete’s opinion about ANYthing other than blatant or overt bias by officials or timers or judges or referees. Somebody miss a line call or a takedown or a javelin distance, or a foot fault on the jumps or vaults, o.k. Raise hell about it. You don’t like somebody’s skin color or gender or religion, screw you. Go join the Taliban, or the KKK, or the BLM. Don’t pretend to represent the United States in friendly athletic competition.

YouTuber: I tipped FBI about alleged Florida shooter last year. MUST SEE VIDEO HERE
Before Nikolas Cruz carried out his mass killing at a Florida high school this week, police responded to his home 39 times over a seven-year period, according to disturbing new documents.
Details about the calls to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office — obtained from police records by CNN — were not immediately available and it was impossible to determine if all involved Cruz.
But the nature of the emergencies at his Parkland home included “mentally ill person,” “child/elderly abuse,” “domestic disturbance” and “missing person,” KTLA reported.
And a schoolmate, Brody Speno, told the network that cops were called to Cruz’s home “almost every other week.”
“Something wasn’t right about him,” Speno told CNN. “He was off.”
Speno said he knew Cruz from elementary school and described him as “an evil kid” who was “always getting in trouble.”
Cruz — who posted images of himself on Instagram posing with guns and knives — has confessed to killing 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland and made an alarming online comment about a recent mass shooting.
“Man I can do so much better,” he wrote.

That is not the narrative.
During a report this week, a local Minnesota reporter blew some uninformed liberal minds by touting some basic facts about gun ownership in his state.
“We took a very hard look at these numbers, and we did find that Minnesota has a very high rate of gun ownership — one of the highest in the country — but it has a relatively low rate of violent crime,” revealed Minneapolis station WCCO reporter Pat Kessler in a segment Thursday.
He added that in 2017, Minnesota “set a new record for firearms background checks,” processing 473,975 checks on permits, 94,383 checks on handguns and 125,516 checks on long guns.
In other words, more people attempted to purchase weapons in the state last year than ever before.
“Minnesota set another 2017 record, too,” his report continued. “The State Department of Public Safety reports 283,188 Minnesotans now have permits to legally carry firearms in public.”
Interestingly, these numbers coincide perfectly with the research of economist, commentator and gun rights advocate John R. Lott, whose award-winning 1998 book, “More Guns, Less Crime,” centers around the thesis that a well-armed population deters crime.
“Criminals are deterred by higher penalties. Just as higher arrest and conviction rates deter crime, so does the risk that someone committing a crime will confront someone able to defend him or herself,” he explained in an interview that year with the University of Chicago Press.
I feel the View’s Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin must apologize and or FIRED for their anti-Christian attacks on VP Mike Pence. If they had said the same thing about Muslims faith of Islam those two would have been FIRED before the show was over!!

Just unconscionable they let this pass, they had the tip, people did report it, twice and they failed to react.
Via Daily Caller:
Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to “conduct an immediate review” of both the Justice Department and FBI Friday.
Sessions referenced the new revelations into the FBI’s mishandling of tips on suspected Stoneman Douglass High School shooter Nikolas Cruz, which he called “tragic.” (RELATED: FBI Admits It Mishandled Tip On Florida Shooter)
“It is now clear that the warning signs were there and tips to the FBI were missed,” Sessions wrote in a statement. “We see the tragic consequences of those failures.”

STEPPING DOWN WOULD NOT BE WHAT FBI DIRECTOR CRISTOFER WRAY NEEDS….HE NEEDS TO BE “FIRED” ASAP!!……Papa Mike

On Friday morning the FBI admitted they did not follow protocol in investigating the violent threats posted online by Nikolas Cruz.
The FBI also admitted they did not follow protocol on a second threat warning about Nikolas Cruz in JANUARY!
Nikolas Cruz murdered 17 individuals at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Wednesday, February 14, 2018, in Parkland, Florida.
On Friday Governor Rick Scott called on FBI Director Christopher Wray to step down following the botched investigation of mass murderer Nikolas Cruz.
Governor Scott called on FBI Director Christopher Wray to resign as a result of the “FBI’s admission that they failed to take action after receiving information on January 5, 2018” on Nikolas Cruz.
Governor Scott: “The FBI’s failure to take action against this killer is unacceptable.”
The Freedom From Religion Foundation didn’t expect pushback from the younger generation.
Via The Daily Signal:
Most Americans have probably never heard of Beloit, Ohio. But this month, they’re starting to hear from them. It may be a small town (less than 1,000 people at most), but it’s mighty. And in the face of the bullies at the Freedom From Religion Foundation, that’s all that matters.
As usual, the anti-Christian activists are always on the prowl for rural areas, where they think locals can be easily intimidated on issues of faith. But the atheists at the Freedom From Religion Foundation made a mistake when they picked on Beloit.
As usual, the Wisconsin group is terrified of the prayers of a few believers, so it fired off a letter to the superintendent of West Branch ordering the school to stop praying before sporting events—or else. School officials were upset at the thought of ending a tradition that had gone on for years, but they agreed, admitting they couldn’t afford a lawsuit.
But that wasn’t the end of the story. The community has started rallying to the side of the students, who are fighting back by selling more than 4,000 “Prayer Matters” shirts (in a town of 900 people).
