From Ben Stein - Paradoxical Quote of the Day

"Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured ..... but not everybody must prove they are a citizen."

Now add this, "Many of those who refuse, or are unable to prove they are citizens will receive free insurance paid for by those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens."

Think about that for a while.

Dear Diary

Dear Diary...
August 15 - Moved to our new home in East Longmeadow, Mass.  It's so beautiful here. The lake to the north looks so majestic.  I can hardly wait to see it snow covered.  I'm going to love it here!
October 14 -Massachusetts is definitely the most beautiful place on earth. The leaves have turned all the colors and shades of red and orange.  Went for a ride through the park and saw some deer.  They are so graceful. Certainly they are the most wonderful animals on earth. This must be paradise, I LOVE IT HERE!!
November 10 - Deer season will start soon. I can't imagine anyone wanting to kill such a gorgeous animal.  Hope it will snow soon. I love it here. Those red and orange leaves have covered my yard. Looks like a magnificent multi-colored carpet. HOW BEAUTIFUL.  Raking and cleaning up the yard will be an opportunity for invigorating exercise in the cool crisp air.
November 15 - Ah, more leaves and more exercise.
November 18 - Jesus, still more leaves. Guess it's best to wait until they've all fallen before I rake again.
November 25 - Finally, all of the trees lost their leaves and with today's final raking it's over for this season. Chiropractor suggested I use a lawn maintenance service next year. Only four blisters became infected. Should probably remember to use gloves.
November 30 - What the f...? Where did all of those leaves come from?  Had a little wind last night and the lawn is covered again. Oh well, they'll just have to wait until spring.
December 12 - It snowed last night, FINALLY. Woke up to find everything blanketed in white.  It looks like a postcard. We went outside and cleaned the snow off the steps and shoveled the driveway. Had a snowball fight (I won) and when the snowplow came by and we had to shovel the end of the driveway again. What a beautiful place. Massacusetts!
December 14 - More snow last night, I love it. The snow plow did his trick to the driveway again. I Love it here.
December 19 - More snow again last night. Can't get out of the driveway.  Can't to get to work. I'm exhausted from shoveling. snowplow.
December 22 - More of that white shit fell again last night. As if dealing with the leaves weren't bad enough, now I've got blisters all over my hands from shoveling, must remember to wear gloves. I think the snowplow hides around the corner and waits until I'm finished shoveling the driveway. The asshole.
December 25 - Merry Christmas. More frigging snow. If I ever get my hands on that son-of-a-bitch who drives the snowplow, I swear I'll kill the bastard. Don't know why they don't use more salt on the roads to melt the ice.
December 27 - More white shit last night. Have been inside for three days except for shoveling out the driveway after that plow goes through every time. gloves got wet and then froze on my hands. Doctor said it was just a mild case of frost bite, disfiguration is probably only temporary. Can't go anywhere, car is stuck in a mountain of white shit. The weatherman says to expect another 10 inches of the shit tonight. Do you know how many shovels full of snow 10 inches is?
December 28 - The weatherman was wrong. We got 34 inches of that white shit. At this rate it won't melt 'till summer. The plow got stuck up the road and the bastard came to the door and asked to borrow a shovel. After I told him I'd already broken six of them shoveling all the shit he pushed into the driveway, I broke my last one on his head.
January 4 - Finally got out of the house today. Went to the store to get food and on the way back I hit a damned deer that ran in front of my car.  Did about $3000 damage. beasts should be killed.  Wish the hunters had killed them all last November.
May 3 - Took the car to the garage in town. The thing is rusting out from all the salt they put all over the roads.
May 10 - Moved to Naples Florida. I can't imagine why anyone in their right mind would ever live in that God forsaken state of Massachusetts!

President Obama To Pay "Respects" To Late Saudi King

President Obama cut his trip to India short so that he could head to Saudi Arabia to pay his "respects" to the late King Abdullah. This is the king who treats women as second class citizens. In fact, the King's four daughters have been under house arrest for the past 14 years , for attempting to raise awareness of women’s treatment in society. 

I recall that when the late/great Margaret Thatcher passed away, President Obama was a no-show despite being invited to attend. Joe Biden also refused, as did Hillary Clinton. (By the way, former Secretary of State George Schultz went to the funeral). The British took note of the fact that the Obama administration chose not to send a single senior member of the Cabinet. In fact, no actively serving, elected Democrat attended Lady Thatcher's funeral. The Obama Administration did, however, send a formal delegation, of 14, to the funeral of Socialist Dictator Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. Do you NOT see a trend?
