Daily dose of smiles



The reason Politicians try so hard to get re-elected is that they would ‘hate’ to have to make a living under the laws they’ve passed. I was in the six item express lane at the store quietly fuming.

Two Brazillian soldiers



The Dept of Defense briefed the president this morning. They told President Obama that two Brazilian soldiers were killed in Iraq . To everyone’s surprise, all the color drained from Obama’s face.

A history lesson- Rome to space



The U.S. Standard railroad gauge ( distance between the rails) is 4 feet, 8.5 inches. That’s an exceedingly odd number. Why was that gauge used?

Because the first rail lines were built by the same people […]

Jesus and the Democrat



( I don’t care what party you like, this is funny!!) A Republican, in a wheelchair, entered a restaurant one afternoon and asked the waitress for a cup of coffee. The Republican looked across the restaurant and asked, “Is that Jesus sitting over there?” The waitress nodded “yes,” so the Republican requested that she give Jesus a cup of coffee, […]
