witt501@**********.com—July 6, 2016—Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence? Here is their story. Five of the signers were captured by the British as traitors and were tortured before they died. Two lost their sons serving in the Colonial Army. Another had two of his sons captured. Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships during the Revolutionary War.
They signed and pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their scared honor. What kind of men were they? Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists. Eleven were merchants. Nine were farmers and plantation owners. They were men of means and well educated.
But, they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty for their treason would be death if they were captured. Carter Braxton of Virginia, a planter and trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and property to pay his debts, and died in rags.
Thomas McKean was so hounded by the :British that he was forced to move his family constantly. He served in Congress without pay, and his family kept him in hiding. His possessions were taken from him and poverty was his reward.
Vandals or soldiers looted the property of Lymam Hall, George Clymer, George Walton, Button Gwinnett, Thomas Heyward, Edward Rutledge and Arthur Middleton. (Editor's Note: There was no signer of the Declaration named Dillary whose name appeaed in this article when I received it.) At the Battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson, Jr. noted that British Lt. General Charles Cornwallis had commandeered Nelson's home for his headquarters. Nelson urged Gen. George Washington to open fire on his home. It was destroyed. Nelson died bankrupt.
Francis Lewis had his home and property destroyed. The British jailed his wife where she was tortured and died within a few months. John Hart was driven from his home, not able to take his invalid wife with him. Hart's 13 children also fled. Hart returned home at the end of the war to learn his wife had died and his children had vanished. He never found them.
So, take a few minutes while enjoying your 4th of July holiday and silently give thanks to those great patriots. Say a prayer of thanks for the price they willingly paid for your freedom. Remember: freedom is never free. I hope you will show you support by sending this link to as many people as you can.
It's time we get the word out that patriotism is NOT a sin, Nor is it a crime although the social progressives in our government wish to make it one. And the 4th of July means more than beer, picnics at the beach or a cookout in the backyard with family and friends.
(Editor's Note: In case you forgot—or never knew—here are the names of the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence (based on the position of their signatures): John Hancock, Samuel Chase, William Maca, Thomas Stone, Charles Carroll, George Wyth, Richard Henry Lee, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Harrison, Thomas Nelson, Jr., Francis Lightfoot Lee, Carter Braxton, Robert Morris, Benjamin Rush, Benjamin Franklin, John Morton, George Clymer, James Smith, George Taylor, James Wilson, George Ross, Caesar Rodney, George Read, Thomas McKean, William Floyd, Phillip Livingston, Arthur Middleton, Button Gwinnett, Francis Lewis, Lewis Morris, Richard Stockton, John Witherspoon, Francis Hopkinson, John Hart, Alan Clark, Josiah Bartlett, William Whipple, Samuel Adams, John Adams, Robert Treat Paine, Eldridge Gerry, Stephan Hopkins, William Ellery, Roger Sherman, Samuel Huntington, William Williams, Oliver Wolcott, Matthew Thorton, William Harper, Joseph Hewes, John Penn, Edward Rutledge, Thomas Heyward, Jr., Thomas Lynch, Jr., Lyman Hall, and George Walton.
If those patriots were alive today they would have marched on both Philadelphia and Washington, DC when US District court Judge R. Barclay Surrick of Pennsylvania (the first federal judge to hear a case which argued that Obama was neither a natural born nor a naturalized citizen). Surrick would have been the first judge jailed and Obama would have been deported to either Indonesia, Kenya or England for those nations to decide whose problem Obama was. .If you recall, the allegation brought by former Pennsylvania Attorney General Philip J. Berg on Aug. 21, 2008, Berg's position was that the court was obligated, under the 1st Amendment, to address his grievance. Surrick capriously dismissed the case, arguing that Berg had no standing under the 1st Amendment because Berg could not prove he was an injured party since the 2008 election had not yet been held.) Let me throw out a hypothetical: What would the signers of the Declaration of Independence do if disloyal politicians tried to install a British citizen as America's first President after they had just fought a 12-year war for freedom? And, what do you think they would do to you for letting an illegal alien govern the nation they died to create?
Remember the words liberal Justice William O. Douglas opined on the record in US v Miller 307 US 174 in 1939 "...Based on the privileges standardized by the States in the 18th century..." (which was, and still is, the superior government of the United States) "...the general public—not the State-controlled militias—has to be as well-armed as its central government since the people, and the States, view the federal government as much, if not more, a threat to liberty than any foreign intruder on American soil." Whenever governments fear its citizens, the first thing those in government do is disarm their citizenry in order to protect themselves from the people. )
EEdithMichael@**********.com—June 21, 2016—I was confused when I heard the word "service" used with these agencies:and public "services:"
This is not what I thought service meant. But today, I overheard two farmers talking, and one of them said he hired a bull to "service" a few cows. BAM!!! It all came into focus. Now I understand what all those agencies are doing to us. Now, you're as enlightened as I am.
oneward28@**********.com—June 1, 2016—Subject: A boy named Harold. Harold was a bright child. He grew up in America. He went to school and had a bright future ahead of him. Harold was full of life, but it was cut short in a violent moment. While few people had ever heard of Harold before his death, many did afterward. And, in death, something very shocking happened. What was so shocking is the comparison of his death to someone else recently in the news.
Harold was Harold Greene, Major General, United States Army. On Aug. 5, 2014 Gen. Green was murdered by a Taliban terrorist. (Editor's Note: Gen. Greene was murdered by an Afghan MP who fired 30 shots from a barrack's bathroom window into a group of coalition forces during a visit to the Marshal Fahim National Defense University in Kabul, Afghanistan. The shooting, which killed Gen. Green two years ago, wounded 18 other coalition and Afghan forces.) Gen. Green was returned home with full military honors.
It has been a tradition for Presidents to attend the funerals of generals and flag officers killed in the line of duty. President Richard Nixon attended the funeral of Maj. Gen.John A.B. Dillard who died when his helicopter was shot down in Vietnam; and President George W. Bush attended the funeral of Lt. Gen. Timothy Maude, who died during the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, DC. When Maj. Gen. Greene was buried, Barack Obama was golfing. The Vice President was not there, either. Neither was the Secretary of State. Flags in the nation's capital were not flown at half mast. (Editor's note: Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel was at Gen. Greene's funeral. His absence was erroneously reported, and then corrected, by the Washington Examiner.)
Four days after Gen. Greene gave his life for his country, Michael Brown died in Ferguson, Missouri minutes after robbing a convenience store. (Editor's Note: Seconds before Brown was shot, he shattered Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson's orbital lobe, resulting in the use of lethal force.) Obama sent an official White House three-member delegation to Brown's funeral. Obama would not attend the funeral of the highest ranking military officer to die since 9-11, yet he sent a delegation to the funeral of a street thug...It's no wonder most Americans hold Obama in such contempt—especially members of the military.
rwjeffrey@**********.com—May 20, 2016—During a recent interview, Donald Trump was asked what his favorite Bible verse was. He said: "If you give a man a fish, it will feed him for a day but, if you deport him, you'll never have to feed him again." :
Editor's Note: If Donald Trump actually said that, then someone else wrote it. I know Trump's a real smart guy. He just isn't that sharp. But, in this instance, I would like to think he is because anyone willing to take on the task of cleaning up the mess Obama made of this country had better have a real good sense of humor. Hillary? An evil woman with an evil laugh, but absolutely no sense of humor. She's too busy stealing jobs from Americans and selling them to foreign countries in order to feed the coffers of the Clinton Foundation.
from multiple_e mails@**********.com—May 20, 2016—Editor's Note: Over the past couple of years, I've received emails from scores of people talking about the Muslim word, "Dhimmitude," which by definition describes the practice of levying a tax on non-Muslims living within Islamic lands being found on page 107 of the Affordable Care Act. The email (or perhaps, "emails," [plural]) being circulated argues that Obamacare created the establishment of "dhimmitude," a "diktat" of Shariah law to be introduced into federal law through the inclusion of Dhimmitude in the Affordable Care Act.
Scary, isn't it? That's why so many people forwarded the email without verifying the information you are deciminating is true by taking a few minutes to look at page 107 of HR 3590, the Affordable Care Act, Public Law, 111-148, 24 Stat 119. Had they done so, they would have discovered there's no mention of Shariah law, or the word, "dhimmitude." (I learned through doing so, that you can't successfully download the file to your hard drive without a conversion error that requires an explanation. It's to forward the link because when this file downloads into a pdf.file on your desktop, the file pages, which actually do begin at 1 is "stuck" at page 119, making it difficult to scroll to page 107—meaning you have to scroll to page 225 to open page 107.)
Dhimmitude is a real word. It's just not in Obamacare. Muslims, however, are exempt from having to purchase Obamacare. That part of the email is correct. But the most interesting thing about the email wasn't in the email. The email referenced Obamacare, but not its bill designation, HR3590, or the fact that its Public Law 111-148 (which makes the content easy to find on the Internet) is not, and never was, a healthcare bill when it was enrolled the House of Representatives on Sept.17, 2009 by then Congressman Charlie Rangel [D-NY]. When the bill was proffered in 2009, it was the Service Members Home Ownership Tax Act of 2009, which passed in the House by a vote of 418-0. The bill died when it entered the Senate. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid [D-NV] gutted the text from the bill (except the first sentence which appeared with HR3590 in the Congressional Record., so Reid couldn't remove it). The verbiage from HR3972 (which was actually S.3972 since it is the Senate bill, was transferred, verbatim into the HR3590 shell, producing a House and Senate version of the Affordable Care Act without the House of Representatives voting on an original healthcare bill which constitutionally, had to originate in the House.
When Obamacare ended up in the Supreme Court over the "tax" or :fine" question, Chief Justice John Roberts sent an affidavit asking for the sworn oath of John Boehner (Speaker when the request was made) as well as Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi [D-CA], who was Speaker in 2009-2010 when Obamacare was theoretically enacted, and Senate Majority Leader Reid. All three were asked to swear under oath that HR3590 was the original House version of the Affordable Care Act. All three did, committing perjury before the highest court in the land. Obamacare violates the Originality Clause of the Constitution and is, therefore, unconstitutional. To get rid of Obamacare, the States which challenged the tax or fine issue, need only challenge the legitimacy of HR3590 to have it nullified by the high court. I think the American people deserve to see Pelosi, Reid and Boehner charged with perjury and face five to ten years in prison for their crime against We the People.
enegme@**********.com—May 10, 2016—A mutual friend of ours, C.E. L********, gave me an article you wrote, "I didn't realize I died in 1943 until 1976." He asked that I write you as I had a very similar experience.
I, too, was born in Michigan. We moved South in 1945 when I was six. I had severe asthma (and unknown at the time, a heart valve problem). When I was 8 years old, I woke up the corner of the ceiling. My mother was sitting beside the bed crying and praying. A lump was all covered up in my bed. The air was thicker and warmer in the corner than at bed level. I felt free and good.
First I was startled, then curious. What's going on? I thought, where is Dad? It was like was a gob of air, and part of me stretched and I went though the wall. I saw the cellular structure of various materials in the wall. Dad was sitting in a rocking chair, snoring. I popped back through the wall and thought, "this is neat." It seemed as though I was thinking something was allowing me to check it out and get an answer. Who was in the bed? Stretch. Hey, that was me. I started stretching to various parts of the house. Then, I sensed the approach of a person in the form of a pure bright light. I knew it was an adult. He came near and communicated to me. Words were spoken in my mind, but without sound. "Come, it's time to go." I yanked away, and said, "No. I can't go." He asked why. "I can't leave my momma. She needs me. Listen to her pray." He told me something that was hidden from me to this day. The next thing I knew, I was gasping and fighting for air. I was achy, groggy, hot, and being pressed by heavy covers.
I kept all of this to myself and pushed it to the back of my mind. When I was in Jr. High School, I looked at the cell structure of wood in slides under a microscope. I remembered seeing the same type structure as I passed through that wall several years earlier.
What I got out of this was a firm conviction of life after death. And, the only reason reason I am alive today is because of my mother's prayers. I have been deeply blessed. Also, that anything we want to know we will be able to find out. Like the old song, "We will know all about it by and by."
stadin 1@**********.com—Apr. 6, 2016—Two patients limp into two different doctors' offices with the same complaint. Both have trouble walking and may require hip surgery.
Patient One is examined within the hour, is X-rayed the same day, and has time booked for surgery the following week.
Patient Two sees his family doctor after waiting three weeks for an appointment. Then he waits eight weeks to see a specialist, then gets an X-ray that isn't reviewed for another week, and finally has his surgery scheduled for six months from then—pending the review board's decision on his age and his remaining value to society.
Why the different treatment for the two patients? The first patient is a Golden Retriever, taken to a veterinarian. The second patient is a senior citizen on Obamacare.
In November, if there's no change in the political stripe of the government, we'll all have to find us a good vet.
mcmast@**********.com—Mar. 30, 2016—This photo speaks volumes...The birth famine. If no children, there is no future. Editor's Note: I guess when people look at the picture below, everyone sees something else. The email originated with SueS@*******.com who said, "Think about what the photo says, and what culture we are leaving for our children and grandchildren..."
The photo shows some illegal "refugees" walking across Europe, heading to Belgium or Germany or some other destination determined by someone other than them. The first thing you should notice in the above photo is that it's winter. There is snow on the ground. The second thing you should notice is that the woman (sixth from the left, holding two small children), is barefoot—in the snow and icy cold.
The author of the text, who very likely appears to be SueS (because the observations in the email commentary show a female sensitivity toward the woman and her children) but the originator of the email could be anyone. She noted "...that these people...are walking to reach their final objective, to live in a European country." Although this photo is making it around the world, "...only 1% of the people will notice the truth. In the photo are six men and one woman. Nothing special. But, in observing a bit closer, you will notice the the woman has bare feet, is accompanied by 3 children; and of the three, she is carrying two. There is a problem because none of the men are helping her. Because, in that culture, the woman represents nothing. She is good only to be the slave to the men. Do you really believe that these particular people could integrate into our societies and respect our customs and traditions?"
(Editor's Note: Even more frightening is that almost every news clip of video footage of Muslim "refugees" streaming in to Europe from the portals of Islam through Muslim Turkey shown on TV, or reaching your computer through YouTube show one thing which, I think, even less people noticed, because the liberal newscasters distributing the footage initially portrayed these illegal aliens from the radical Mideast and Africa, and emphasized that whole families were migrating from Syria, Libya, Iraq, Somalia, the Sudan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and everywhere else in the world where Islamists have joined the global jihad against all other peoples and all other religions in the world—even peaceful Muslims—who have become the innocent victims of the carnage taking place in their countries. The news media selectively sought and played videos which depicted "family shots," or what could be construed by the media in that manner. In reality, well over 90% of the "refugees" were young males in their late teens and early twenties. They weren't coming to find work. They are the invading army coming to conquer Europe. And today, Barack Obama, without the okay from Congress (which the federal court in Washington, DC said he requires before he can arbitrarily smuggle illegals into the country, and quietly disburse them in small groups throughout sparsely populated areas in the country..
Suddenly we have the United Nations, largely controlled by the royals of Europe and the masters of the Muslim world championing the migration, like it was a genuine humanitarian effort—which it is anything but. There are two population distribution schemes taking place in the world simultaneously—for two polar opposite reasons.
First, we have the princes of industry and the barons of banking and business who listened to the "sky is falling" Chicken Little environmental and ecological doomsayers in the late 1950s and 60s who predicted that by the year 2000 half the people in the world would starve to death and the other half would be killing each other for what food was left.
David Rockefeller, the scion of the wealthiest family on Earth assured the world that it was running out of fossil fuels, and by 2000 everyone would be freezing to death unless they invested in solar panels or installed wind generators on every unoccupied inch of land, and environmental groups, largely funded by the oil industry wanting to cut consumption regardless of the cost to the common man, screaming global warming was due to carbon fuel emissions, and the only solution was to move all of America's factories to the third world where there are no labor laws protecting workers, and where people who've never had a job in their lives would gladly work for slave wages.
The plot failed because once the industrialists moved their factories and jobs to the third world, they eliminated the primary ingredient that greased the wheels of commerce in the industrialized world—the tax base which keeps any behemoth government alive. Government actuaries in every industrialized nation in the world scrambled to do the math, When would the global monetary system irreversibly collapse? (If you're a Christian and spend anytime reading the Bible, you know the collapse comes in Revelation 18.) In actuarial ages, the catastrophic currency collapse—the domino effect that wipes out every monetary system in the world was scheduled to happen between 2020 and 2030.. But, the actuarials didn't factor Barack Obama and $17 trillion in new debt into the equation.
Do you remember when George W. Bush told the American people that if the Republican dominated Congress gave him the money, he would build a a triple walled fence topped with razor wire from the Pacific coast to the Gulf of Mexico, and when they gave him the money—no fence. President Bush never told the people why. He should have. The Chairman of the Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan gave Bush the bad news. Social Security was on the verge of collapse, and unless America found an additional 34 to 50 million adult taxpayers earning incomes and paying into the system, and if Congress did not immediately increase the retirement age for seniors from 67 to 70, the system would collapse much sooner than initially projected because each year slightly over a million workers retire and begin collecting benefits, but joblessness pretty much assures there will not be enough new tax revenue generated to offset the tax revenue lost because there aren't enough high income wage earners entering the work force to offset the loss of the taxes paid by higher paid retirees combined with the drain on the imaginary social security trust fund to pay those same new retirees..
Economic advisers on both sides of the great divide were telling Bush he not only needed to keep the borders porous, he needed to be prepared to offer amnesty and a path to citizenship to meaningfully employed illegals who were currently paying taxes on the incomes they were earning here. Regardless if they were paying taxes or not, the majority of Americans vehemently opposed amnesty in any form. . As for that matter, so do the Europeans who have also seen the princes of industry transfer job after job and factory after factory to the third world, believing the vast human capital in the third world was going to be the middle class consumers of the New World Order as the world empires of the 20th century faded into the dustbin of history. As a result in Europe, the "gimme crowd," which is many cases never had a real job in their lives were now finding that the "free ride" has been curbed. The EU has the same problem as the US—not enough tax revenue coming in the door. The UN's proposal that the EU could solve their own human capital shortages (by creating new consumers and taxpayers at the same time). Only, the jobs everybody thought someone would create didn't materialize because it takes money to make money.
Sadly, the 2,821,500 Muslims the EU States have allowed to enter their countries didn't come looking for job opportunities, nor did they come because they feared for their lives. Seventy-six percent of the 190 most influential Muslims in England strongly support jihad in England to force Parliament to adopt Sha'ria law. (A prior poll done by an independent polling company in England found 80% of the Muslim population supported jihad against their host country. In Germany, Muslim crimes increased by 79% in 2015, with 308,344 reported criminal acts perpetuated on German citizens.) Europe has reported that they estimate there are 5,000 roaming ISIS fighters moving from country to country in Europe, killing, raping and looting wherever they go. Sweden and Denmark now have the highest rate of sex crimes in Europe with Sweden experiencing an uptick in rape by 77.8% (committed, Muslim authorities in Europe claim, by about 2% of the Muslims in that country). France, who has suffered the largest loss of life from "refugees" is now paying Muslim refugees to go somewhere else. Where? There are already approximately 16 million Muslims in Europe. And, today, there are 40 million Muslims, standing at the gates, determined and ready to do whatever they need to do, to sink their roots into a Muslim Europe.
The bad news? We're next. So, scroll back up and look at that picture again. These are not refugees seeking safety and economic security. These are soldiers on their way to war. The few women and children who accompany these hordes are either the wives of a few, or they believed they were escaping the radical Islamists who have launched the 8th or 9th Crusade (depending on which historian you ask.)
Grnjllybn@**********.com—Mar. 25, 2016—Obama has committed several impeachable offenses, but Americans are jerks. They don't want to do anything about it. I have completely lost confidence in the American people. They no longer have the courage of past generations. These are not the people I grew up with in the 1940s.
(Editor's Note: Atta, girl. You're the first person I know who has accurately fingered the guilty people. They are us. If we didn't vote blindfolded and elect crooks, we wouldn't have crooks running the government. There should be two requirements met by every American before they are allowed to vote. First, they can't be on government assistance because that is akin to "vote buying." Give people a free ride and they will always ride it to the polling places to guarantee they continue to receive public assistance by electing those who are willing to rob middle class Americans so the "gimme crowd"is guaranteed the continuation of their job watching TV and sluffing off all day while the rest of us struggle by the sweat of our brows to make ends meet. Second, the voter needs to have an IQ greater than an empty pea pod, which disqualifies over half of the voters who don't seem to realize that besides being a pathological liar who has been accepting bribes from the enemies of the United States since 1992—Hillary is also responsible for selling the jobs of those now on welfare to her "Punjab constituency" in India. And now, over half of the voting public wants to give her the only job in America where she can sell the rest of them. When the entire population of the country qualifies for welfare, who do the pea pod idiots think will foot the bill? George Soros and David Rockefeller? Don't think so. Soros wants to bankrupt America, and Rockefeller is one of the princes of industry who is behind the transfer of wealth from the United States to everywhere else in the world. Somehow, since we have become the expendable human capital of the social progressives, I don't think so. So, keep this thought in mind when you vote. While you think you are, you aren't voting for a Democrat or a Republican this year, nor are you voting to keep your welfare check. You are actually voting to to keep your liberty, because once its gone, we will all be slaves of the State. Because, if Queen Hillary steals the White House (she cant win it as Barack Obama has proven), she will sweep every vestige of the free enterprise system out of the government. But first, she will use the broom she rides into Washington on, to sweep the remnants of the Constitution of the United States into the dustbin of history. Goodbye, America.
gardngrl@**********.com—Mar. 11, 2016—No need to Snopes this. Channel 12 in Beaumont, Texas did the leg work and the reporting. According to them, and another Beaumont-area TV station and the Beaumont newspaper, this really happened. (Note: the likelihood that Barbara and David Mikkelson [the owners and operators of Snopes], who are left, left, way-left leftwingers, would report such a bad showing is very unlikely although they have recently posted as true some anti-left stories which, a year ago, they would have either ignored or defended.)
(Editor's Note: Me? I don't think there ever was a campaign speech scheduled in Beaumont except for Hillary's Pakistani constituents. I think it was just a "money drop" stop. The Democrats know how to "load an audience" better than anyone. If there actually was a campaign speech scheduled in Beaumont, there would have been a masssive crowd pf union workers, all of whom wished they were somewhere else. The unions simply call the union halls and they supply the audience.)
Editor's Note: Bill Clinton collected his first Chinese bribe when he was governor of Arkansas (in a meeting in a Little Rock restaurant with James McDougal, James Riady, Witt Stephens (who was trying to sell rice to China that day) and a Clinton "handyman" who provided the details of that meeting over a dozen and a half years ago). Riady needed State-government approval for a bank charter in Arkansas. Clinton reportedly accommodated him. The Cox Report (the final report of the House Select Committee on National Security on Chinagate) provides the details of massive illegal donations being received within the White House by the Clintons. So why would anyone be surprised to learn that HIllary is taking illegal contributions? She never stopped! In the article Hillary's Constituency, the former Secretary of State and US Senator laughing referred the people of India as her "...Punjab constituency."
Sadly, the Americans Hillary hurt the most are those who now support her bid for the Oval Office. Which is why Nation of Islam leader Louis Farakhan has denounced Hillary Clinton and is urging the African American community not to vote for her.
The only reason Bill Clinton was not charged with malfeasance and perhaps treason for taking money and providing Commerce Dept. access to the Chinese military through John Huang (who was able to keep his Commerce Dept. top secret clearance even after he quit and went to work at the DNC as a fund-raiser) is because from 1983-88 the Chinese gave hundreds of millions of dollars to scores of Democratic Congressmen and Senators through then Sen. Alan Cranston [D-CA], one of the Keating Five (who was not charged only because he was dying of cancer when the scandal broke). Those politicians knew if Clinton became vulnerable, they would likely all be exposed and suffer Clinton's impeachment fate for taking illegal donations from an enemy State—which Clinton-provided "favorite nation" status. That's why Clinton was impeached for perjury for lying about the woman wearing the semen-stained blue dress.
When Reagan overwhelmed Walter Mondale in one of the two worst election whippings in the history of the United States, China began shoveling money into the coffers of Democrats in the House and Senate in order to prevent Reagan from getting a cooperative Congress to develop his Star Wars defense system.
gardngrl@**********.com—Feb. 18, 2016—From the Arkansas Democrat Gazette: Two local men were injured when their pickup truck left the road and struck a tree near Cotton Patch on State Highway 38 early Monday. Woodruff County Deputy Dovey Snyder reported the accident shortly after midnight Monday.
Thurston Poole, 33, of Des Arc and Bill Ray Wallis, 38, of Little Rock, were returning to Des Arc after a frog-catching trip. On an overcast Sunday night, Poole's pickup truck's headlights malfunctioned.
The two men concluded that the headlight fuse on the older-model truck had burned out. As a replacement fuse was not available, Wallis noted that the .22 caliber bullets from his pistol fit perfectly into the fuse box next tot he steering wheel column. Upon inserting the bullet in the fuse housing, the headlights again began to operate properly, and the two men proceeded eastbound toward the White River Bridge.
After traveling approximately 20 miles, and just before crossing the river, the bullet apparently overheated, discharged and struck Poole in the testicles. The vehicle swerved sharply right and struck a tree. Poole suffered only minor cuts and abrasions from the accident, but will require extensive surgery to repair the damage to his testicles, which will never operate as intended. Wallace sustained a broken clavicle and was treated and released. "Thank God we weren't on that bridge when Thurston shot off his testicles, or we might be dead,"
"I've been a trooper for 10 years in this part of the world," Snyder said, "but this is a first for me. I can't believe those two would admit how this accident happened." Upon being notified of the wreck, Lavinia Poole (Poole's wife) asked how many frogs the boys had caught, and did anyone get them from the truck? Although Poole and Wallis did not die as a result of their misadventure (as required by the Darwin Stupidity Award official rules, it can be argued that Thurston Poole has effectively removed himself from the gene pool. (Editor's Note: And unless Poole's wife divorces him and marries someone else who can produce children the bullet that removed Poole from the gene pool effectively removed his wife from it, as well.)
measter@**********.com—Dec. 14, 2015—The toothpaste salesman. The kids filed into class Monday morning. They were all excited. Their weekend assignment was to sell something, then give a talk on salesmanship.
LIttle Sally led off. "I sold Girl Scout cookies, and I made $30," she said proudly. "My sales approach was to appeal to the customer's civic spirit. And I credit that approach for my obvious success."
"Very good,"said the teacher.
Little Debbie was next. "I sold magazines," she said. "I made $45 and I explained to everyone that magazines would keep them up on current events."
"Very good, Debbie," said the teacher.
Eventually, it was little Johnny's turn. The teacher held her breath. LIttle Johnny walked up to the from of the classroom and dumped a box full of cash on the teacher's desk. "$2,497," he said. $2,467?" echoed the teacher, "...what in the world were you selling?"
"Toothbrushes," said Little Johnny. "Toothbrushes?" echoed the teacher again, "How could you possibly sell enough toothbrushes to make that much money?"
"I found the busiest corner in town," he said. "I set up a Dip and Chip Stand and I gave everyone who walked by a free sample. They all said the same thing: 'Hey, this tastes like dog poop!' I would reply,"It is dog poop. Wanna buy a toothbrush?"
"I used the Obama method of giving you some crap, dressing it up so it looks good, telling you its free, then making you pay to get the bad taste out of your mouth."
Little Johnny got 5 stars for his assignment. Bless his little heart

On Feb. 15, 1933 when President-elect Franklin D. Roosevelt, accompanied on the occasion by Chicago Mayor Anton Cemak was making a speech at the Bayfront Park in Miami, a dissident immigrant, Giuseppe "Joe" Zangara tried to assassinate FDR. As well-wishers crowded around Roosevelt's convertible to shake the President-elect's hand, Zangara pulled a .38 caliber revolver from a pocket and fired six quick shots. Before he could fire the first shot, a woman standing next to him, Mrs. Joe Gill (the wife of the President of Florida Light & Power) jerked his arm, causing him to miss Roosevelt. The first bullet hit Cemak, fatally wounding him. (He died 17 days later as FDR was being sworn in as President on March 4, 1933.) Three other people were wounded.
It was on Feb. 15, 1933 that Roosevelt decided that "guns kill." He knew at that moment, solely because the gun was aimed at him, the first thing he was going to do as President was to outlaw them. Roosevelt controlled both Houses of Congress and was convinced he could bully his National Firearms Act of 1933 through both Houses and amend the Constitution by eraser, eliminating the Second Amendment. Attorney General Homer Cummins convinced FDR that, first, Congress wouldn't even bring his bill up for a vote. Second, FDR would lose control of Congress. Instead, Cummins proposed a stiff excise tax on guns, and an oppressive tax on "gangster weapons" (modified weapons like sawed-off shotguns.) Congress refused to pass his bill because of the tax to purchase a gun was more than an average working class American earned in three months.. In 1938, FDR finally got his seriously weakened National Firearms Act enacted. The bill did not include an oppressive excise tax. It simply forbade Americans from modifying weapons for the purpose of concealment, and prevents them from purchasing tommy guns (gangster weapons) or any other automatic weapons.
The National Firearms Act of 1938 ended up before the US Supreme Court as United States v Miller 307 US 174 in 1939. The Supreme Court ruled on May 19 that it was the inherent belief of the Founding Fathers that the people might someday have to fight an oppressive government, and therefore, it was in the best interests of the nation that the people be as well-armed as its government. The court further held that the National Firearms Act was an attempt by Congress and the White House to usurp the powers reserved for the States, and that the purpose of the 2nd Amendment was not to restrict the rights of the people to own firearms, but to protect the people from their government.
************@john*******.com—Dec. 8, 2015—A newspaper article re-published on Oct. 13, 1975 that originally appeared in the same Northeast newspaper which originally published it in April, 1970 concerns documents found in May, 1919 by the Allied forces in Dusseldorf, Germany. In the documents found by British and American troops was something most people today attribute to communist community activist Saul Alinsky, who used the material, almost verbatim in his RULES FOR RADICALS, which he dedicated to "Lucifer." Hillary Rodham met Saul Alinsky several times in 1968 while she was attending Wellesley College. Her radicalization began.with those meetings. The Free Beacon, which secured at least two of the letters from Rodham to Alinsky, concluded from the content that Alinsky had a much deeper influence in shaping Hillary Rodham Clinton's political views than previously thought.
Soon to be Yale radical Hillary Rodham Clinton (who was raised as a conservative in a conservative home in Illinois), was radicalized before she arrived at Yale Law School in 1969. At 23 in the summer of 1971 while living in Berkeley, CA. Hillary Rodham worked for Treuhaft, Walker & Burnstein, who were known for their radical politics and a client list that included the Black Panthers and other militants.like Alinsky. On July 8, 1971 Hillary Rodham Clinton began writing letters to her new political crush, Saul Alinsky (age 62), which she sent air mail, and marked them "personal." Copies of two letters from Rodham to Alinsky were received by the Free Beacon from Alinsky's Industrial Areas Foundation, which is housed in the University of Texas in Austin. The IAF was a training center for community organizers. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s relationship with Saul Alinsky was personal and her tacit agreement with his radical political views continued for at least two years after she entered Yale law school in 1969. Alinsky died the in 1973.
I've got one question for you: What American with at least one brain cell still working would vote for Hillary Rodham Clinton for President? Answer: only those who don't like personal liberty, free will, and the right to bear arms. Take heed because the anti-American interloper in the White House has the same plan in mind that the Clintons have—ban the private ownership of firearms in the United States by Executive Order, or by an unconstitutional law should the left regain control of the US House of Representatives and the US Senate. If that happens, the only people with guns in America will be the bureaucrats in Washington who have already stockpiled over a billion rounds of ammunition for them, the federal, state and county police and...of course, the criminals and the terrorists.
