    Thank you all for your comments. I am not the author, sorry;) but I am a Cranky Old Woman (cow;) and can relate.

    Sobering thought; When checking the FR memorial wall, I was shocked at the young ages many of our beloved FReeper friends left us.

    So give thanks for the blessing of a long and challenging future together.

    God bless

    I would like to thank all my friends for sticking with me through these abrupt, new found changes in my life and my thinking!

    I just can't imagine or understand what's happened to me so quickly!

    Funny . . . it's all just taken place over the last 7 or 8 years! As if all this crap wasn't enough to deal with.

    *****You have to be incredibly vapid and stupid to seek moral instruction or inspiration from these celluloid lowlifes.******

    Yes you do... Got this great email on the subject;)

    Ever looked up the education credentials of Hollywood and New York soothsayers?

    Most of them rely on knowledge clouds drifting across the Pacific, perhaps from an Asian mystic who wears lots of colorful beads.

    The mystic has brought them deep understanding of economics, governance, military affairs and especially science. It inspires bold words on most topics.

    LEONARDO DeCAPRIO’s self-declared climate expertise enables him to speak on the world’s environmental issues with a high-school education. He never took a college biology, chemistry, physics or climatology course, yet he knows more than most scientists. He proved that by addressing climate change before a full gathering of the UN.

    SEAN PENN’s quick takes on everything put him at the lofty level of an Einstein. He visited Iraq once and became an expert on that country. The same for Iran. He also became buddies with the brutal Venezuelan communist Hugo Chavez and consistently lauded that murderous thug. Now that Chavez is gone and Venezuelans are raiding dumpsters for food scraps, Penn is having a rare silent moment. Penn deserves some credit for becoming a world-affairs genius based on two years of auto mechanics classes at Santa Monica College.

    KATY PERRY’s passion about politics and economics freed her to quit high school at 15 without compromising her expert status. Asked the square root of 64, the name given the Constitution’s first 10 amendments and to explain PE ratio, her answer might be, “Republicans are for the rich.” She recently demonstrated wizardry by making an anti-Trump video. It suggested the new president would commit acts similar to forced World War II lockups of loyal Japanese-Americans. Perry probably did not know the internment plan was developed and executed by DEMOCRAT President Roosevelt.

    ROBERT DeNIRO must also be a quick learner. He acquired amazing scientific knowledge before dropping out of high school. He knows so much about geology that he joined Artists Against Fracking. (All the producing wells in his native Manhattan must have provided first-hand experience.) He’s also an expert on pediatric medicine, enabling him to speak often against vaccinating infants and children.

    HARRY BELAFONTE is another multiple-subject whiz who needed little formal education. Some people might think this talented singer might limit his words to songs since his IQ is so low. Don’t worry. Despite advancing age, he remains expert on most things. When black people of greater intelligence (that’s most black people) say something moderate or conservative, he hurls the N word at them. Decades ago, he loudly denounced Reagan’s elimination of CETA, the Comprehensive Employment Training Act. It was one of the most wasteful federal programs ever — many vanished dollars, few jobs. Belafonte tore into Reagan during an interview Finally, the interviewer asked Belafonte what CETA stood for. Belafonte had no clue. He knew almost nothing about the act.

    ROSIE O’DONNELL was my personal favorite long before her hateful remark that Trump’s 10-year-old son looked autistic. Her coarse philosophy must be that if you say something loudly, it need not be correct. Her bombast probably created lots of turmoil with both the women she “married.” She also must have skipped chemistry during her high-school education. Otherwise, she would have not have offered “proof” that 9/11 was an inside job. She often bellowed that planes could not have brought down the Twin Towers because “steel doesn’t burn.” This constant jackass must not know that high temperatures DO reduce steel’s strength. (However, investigations have shown that this is still a possibility.)

    AL SHARPTON would be America’s greatest at-large criminal, if not for Hillary’s tens of millions swapped for influence and favors. Sharpton owes nearly $5 million in delinquent taxes to IRS and New York state. Makes you wonder why NBC/MSNBC would ever hire him. Sharpton accumulated vast theological knowledge by age 9, when he was “ordained” as a preacher. He didn’t need more than a high-school education to keep marching forward. His most successful high school class must have been Shystehood. Despite one scandal after another, his 2004 run for president stands out. The Federal Election Commission forced him to return $100,000 in taxpayer money provided by FEC. One of many abuses was his $145,146 charge for “Campaign letter preparation — Kinko’s.” Later, FEC fined Sharpton $285,000.

    JULIA ROBERTS proves that physical beauty does not ensure a beautiful brain. She had a fling at Georgia State University before pursuing acting lessons and joining a modeling group. Her acting and modeling skills guided her to such thoughtful observations as “Republican” comes between “reptile” and “repugnant” in the dictionary. Impressed?

    BROOKE SHIELDS, an Obama supporter, verifies the Roberts theory — that physical beauty does not guarantee a beautiful brain. During her days as a boisterous animal-rights supporter, Shields had a mink coat custom-made.

    BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN could have been No. 1 on this list. He squabbled with nuns when in Catholic school. Transferring to a public school, he thought so little of the education experience that he skipped graduation. Had he gone to college, he might have majored in Hate 101. That’s what we hear when he’s not singing. He claims Trump is a “moron” who advocates “white nationalism.” Springsteen demonstrates the analytical skills’ void of most show-biz folk when he laments America’s industrialization decline. Somebody please whisper to Springsteen that his party’s business-crunching regulations and world-leading corporate tax rate compels U.S. manufacturers to go elsewhere.

    Finally, two others are outside the entertainment world, disqualifying them from winning an Oscar, Emmy or Grammy. Politicians Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters do compete for the Rock Head of the Year trophy each time they speak Pelosi frequently wins with comments like needing to pass a bill “so we can find out what’s in it.” Waters has already locked up the 2017 trophy for suggesting a Trump impeachment over his campaign antics. Listen closely, Maxine. Presidents can be impeached only for what they do in office. (But the “whole of Congress” believed Nancy?)

    Only the Irish have Jokes Like These - BUT THEY LOVE TO SHARE!!!!

    Into a Belfast pub comes Paddy Murphy, looking like he’d just been run over by a train. His arm is in a sling,

    his nose is broken, his face is cut and bruised and he’s walking with a limp
    “What happened to you?” asks Sean, the bartender.
    “Jamie O’Conner and me had a fight,” says Paddy.
    “That little shit, O’Conner,” says Sean, “he couldn’t do that to you. He must have had something in his hand.”
    “That he did,” says Paddy, “a shovel is what he had, and a terrible lickin’ he gave me with it.”
    “ Well,” says Sean, “you should have defended yourself, didn’t you have something in your hand?”
    “That I did,” said Paddy. “Mrs. O’Conner’s breast, and a thing of beauty it was, but useless in a fight.”

    ****************************** ****************************** **************

    An Irishman who had a little too much to drink is
    driving home from the city one night and, of course his car is weaving violently all over the road.

    A cop pulls him over. “So,” says the cop to the driver, “where have ya been?”
    “ Why, I’ve been to the pub of course,” slurs the drunk.
    “ Well,” says the cop, “it looks like you’ve had quite a few to drink this evening.”

    “I did all right,” the drunk says with a smile.
    “Did you know,” say’s the cop, standing straight and folding his arms across his chest, “that a few intersections

    back, your wife fell out of your car?”
    “Oh, thank heavens,” sighs the drunk. “For a minute there, I thought I’d gone deaf.”

    ****************************** ****************************** *************

    Brenda O’Malley is home making dinner, as usual, when Tim Finnegan arrives at her door. “Brenda,

    may I come in?” he asks. “I’ve somethin’ to tell ya”.
    “Of course you can come in, you’re always welcome, Tim. But where is my husband?”
    “That’s what I’m here to be telling ya, Brenda. “there was an accident down at the Guinness brewery...”
    “Oh, God no!” cries Brenda. “Please don’t tell me.”

    “I must, Brenda. Your husband Shamus is dead and gone. I’m sorry.” Finally, she looked up at Tim.

    “How did it happen, Tim?”

    “It was terrible, Brenda. He fell into a vat of Guinness Stout and drowned.”

    “Oh my dear Jesus! But you must tell me truth, Tim. Did
    he at least go quickly?”

    “Well, Brenda... No. In fact, He got out three times to pee.”

    ****************************** ****************************** ************

    Mary Clancy goes up to Father O’Grady after his Sunday morning service, and she’s in tears.

    He says, “So what’s bothering you, Mary my dear?”
    She says, “Oh, Father, I’ve got terrible news. My
    husband passed away last night.”
    The priest says, “Oh, Mary, that’s terrible. Tell me Mary, did he have any last requests?”
    She says, “That he did, Father.”

    The priest says, “What did he ask, Mary? “
    She says, He said, ‘Please Mary, put down that damn gun...’

    ****************************** *************************


    A drunk staggers into a Catholic Church, enters a confessional booth, sits down, but says nothing.

    The Priest coughs a few times to get his attention but the drunk continues to sit there. Finally,

    the Priest pounds three times on the wall.
    The drunk mumbles, “ain’t no use knockin’, there’s no

    paper on this side either!”

    Oak Harbor, Wash. When my older brother was very young, he always walked up to the church altar with my mother when she took communion. On one occasion, he tugged at her arm and asked, "What does the priest say when he gives you the bread?" Mom whispered something in his ear. Imagine his shock many years later when he learned that the priest doesn't say, "Be quiet until you get to your seat."

    Been there too. Chemotherapy is gruesome. I have to wonder about the drug some of us were given to dry up our milk - when breastfeeding was ‘out of favor’. It had to have been hormonal.

    As for B.Ca treatment - not only is the chemo brutal, so is reconstructive surgery. Not sure implants are the best way to go. Perhaps the new approach is better - radical mastectomies.

    Let’s hope we find a preventive solution soon.

    The phone rings and the lady of the house answers,


    “Mrs Sanders, please.”


    “Mrs. Sanders, this is Doctor Jones at Saint Agnes Laboratory.
    When your husband’s doctor sent his biopsy to the lab last week, a biopsy from another Mr. Sanders arrived as well...
    We are now uncertain which one belongs to your husband.
    Frankly, either way the results are not too good.”

    “What do you mean?” Mrs. Sanders asks nervously.

    “Well, one of the specimens tested positive for Alzheimer’s and the other one tested positive for HIV.
    We can’t tell which is which.”

    “That’s dreadful! Can you do the test again?” questioned Mrs.Sanders.

    “Normally we can, but MEDICARE will only pay for these expensive tests once.”

    “Well, what am I supposed to do now?”

    “The MEDICARE Helpdesk recommend that you drop your husband off somewhere in the middle of town.

    If he finds his way home, don’t sleep with him.

    ****What would you have me do?***

    Your daily analyses are right on target. I believe you are capturing the emotional roller coaster we are all experiencing. Winning was just the beginning;).

    President Trump has not even been in office a month yet. He is so different from the traditional, uptight, secretive, pompous and phony ‘sincere’ politicians we are accustomed to, that it is mind boggling for both his supporters and the lefties.

    Our ‘way of life’ has been one of consumption and regulation. Suddenly, we are confronted with a ‘verbal’ civil war. I really mean that. This is perhaps the most uncivil, civil war in my long memory.

    Keep up the good work Laz. You should be a speechwriter for POTUS.

    Paraprosdokians (Winston Churchill loved them) are figures of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected and is frequently humorous.

    1. Where there’s a will, I want to be in it.
    2. The last thing I want to do is hurt you ... but it’s still on my list.
    3. Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
    4. If I agreed with you, we’d both be wrong.
    5. We never really grow up — we only learn how to act in public.
    6. War does not determine who is right, only who is left.
    7. Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
    8. To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is research.
    9. I didn’t say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.
    10. In filling out an application, where it says, “In case of emergency, notify...” I answered “a doctor.”
    11. Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.
    12. You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.
    13. I used to be indecisive, but now I’m not so sure.
    14. To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.
    15. Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian, any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.
    16. You’re never too old to learn something stupid.
    17. I’m supposed to respect my elders, but it’s getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

    I was standing at the bar at the VFW one night minding my own business.

    This FAT ugly chick came up behind me, grabbed my behind and said, “You’re kinda cute. You gotta phone number?”

    I said, “Yeah, you gotta pen?”

    She said, “Yeah, I got a pen”.
    I said, “You better get back in it before the farmer misses you.”
    Cost me 6 stitches...but,
    When you’re Eighty............... who cares?

    I went to the drug store and told clerk”Give me 3 packets of condoms, please.”

    Lady Clerk: “Do you need a paper bag with that, sir?”

    I said “Nah... She’s purty good lookin’.....”

    Smacked me right in the face, but...
    When you’re Eighty..............who cares?

    I was talking to a young woman in the VFW last night.

    She said, “If you lost a few pounds, had a shave and got your hair cut, you’d look all right.”

    I said, “If I did that, I’d be talking to your friends over there instead of you.”

    Cost me a fat lip, but...
    When you’re Eighty ....who cares?

    I was telling a woman in the Club about my ability to guess what day a woman was born just by feeling her breasts.

    “Really” she said, “Go on then... try.”

    After about thirty seconds of fondling she began to lose patience and said, “Come on, what day was I born?”

    I said, “Yesterday.”
    Cost me a kick in the groin, but...
    When you’re Eighty............... who cares?

    I got caught taking a pee in the swimming pool today. The lifeguard shouted at me so loud, I nearly fell in.
    When you’re Eighty.............. who cares?


    I went to our VFW last night and saw a BIG woman dancing on a table.

    I said, “Good legs.”

    The girl giggled and said, “Do you really think so?”

    I said, “Definitely! Most tables would have collapsed by now.”

    Cost me 6 more stitches, but...

    Best advice I have seen anywhere;)

    It is so obvious how the MSM is promoting ‘disapproval’ of President Trump; they don’t pass on anything that is stupid, disruptive or out and out false.

    Which has begun to influence the ‘approval’ polling. Most of us are just exhausted and it’s depressing to read and hear nothing but negative reporting.

    That type of bias is upsetting to everyone, regardless of their political preferences.

    Blaming President Trump for rioting, anger and bad attitude is akin to blaming your mother for your acne.

    Two priests decided to go to Hawaii on vacation.

    They were determined to make this a real vacation by not wearing anything that would identify them as clergy. As soon as the plane landed they headed for a store and bought some really outrageous shorts, shirts, sandals, sunglasses etc.
    The next morning they went to the beach
    dressed in their ‘tourist’ garb. They were sitting on beach chairs, enjoying a drink, the sunshine and the scenery when a ‘drop dead gorgeous’ blonde in a topless bikini came walking straight towards them.. They couldn’t help but stare
    As the blonde passed them, she smiled and said ‘Good Morning, Father ~ Good Morning, Father,’ nodding and addressing each of them individually, then she passed on by.

    They were both stunned. How in the world did she know they were priests? So the next day, they went back to the store and bought even more outrageous outfits.

    These were so loud you could hear them before you even saw them! Once again, in their new attire, they settled down in their chairs to enjoy the sunshine. After a little while, the same gorgeous blonde, wearing a different coloured topless bikini, taking her sweet time, came walking toward them. Again she nodded at each of them, and said

    ‘Good morning, Father ~ Good morning, Father,’ and started to walk away. One of the priests couldn’t stand it any longer and said, ‘Just a minute, young lady.’

    ‘Yes, Father?’

    ‘We are priests and proud of it; but I have to know, how in the world do you know we are priests, dressed as we are?’

    She replied, ‘Father, it’s me, -— Sister Kathleen.’

    When we get 100,000,000, that’s one hundred million, willing Christians to BOND together, voice their concerns and vote, we can take back America with God’s help.

    In 1952 President Truman established one day a year as a “National Day of Prayer.”

    In 1988 President Reagan Designated the first Thursday in May of each year as The National Day of Prayer.

    In June 2007 (then) Presidential Candidate Barack Obama Declared that the USA “Was no longer a Christian nation.

    In May 2009 President Obama dismissed our 21st annual National Day of Prayer ceremony at the White House under the ruse of “not wanting to offend anyone”

    Sept. 25, 2009, a Muslim Prayer Day was held on the west front of the U.S. Capitol Building, the site where U.S. Presidents have been inaugurated since 1981. There were over 50,000 Muslims In D.C. that day President Obama dismissed our national day of prayer and now it is okay for an event at our capitol for Islamist?? I for one was offended.

    But wait, it has not stopped even now!!!

    February 17-19, 2015, A Muslim prayer was recited at the start of the second day of the White House summit on “Countering Violent Extremism,” but no other religious text was presented during the portion of the event that was open to the press.

    Imam Sheikh Sa’ad Musse Roble, president of the World Peace Organization in Minneapolis , Minn. , recited a “verse from the Quran” following remarks by Obama administration officials and Democratic members of Congress.

    Now President Obama is encouraging schools to teach the Quran for extra credit, while at the same time, they cannot even talk about the Bible, God, pray, or salute the American Flag!!

    The direction this country is headed should strike fear in the heart of every Christian.

    Received this from a friend. No attribution, but it is a good summary of what we are up against - terrorists and ourselves.


    You can ask any person, between the ages of 18 and 25, if they have ever heard of the Nuremburg Trials. It is possible that one person out of thirteen will say they have heard of the Trials. However, even that one will not be able to tell you what (not who) was on trial.

    Those same people will not be able to tell you the name of the current Vice President.

    Eighty four percent of those who receive this email will not completely read it. And, if they read any of it at all.


    This war started in the 7th Century and lasted through the 17th Century. Many will contend it never stopped; the facts below are historically correct.

    That is why many of us choke when we hear someone say we will defeat or contain these Islamic terrorists in a few years, or even “30 years” as has been stated by Leon Panetta.

    If the latest batch of murders, beheadings, and killing of innocent Christians has at all shocked you, it is time for you to read this compilation of historical facts about the intense hatred that Muslims have for any and all who are not Muslims.


    In 732 A.D., the Muslim Army, which was moving on Paris, was defeated and turned back at Tours, France, by Charles Martell.

    In 1571 A.D., the Muslim Army/Navy was defeated by the Italians and Austrians as they tried to cross the Mediterranean to attack southern Europe in the Battle of Lepanto.

    In 1683 A.D., the Turkish Muslim Army, attacking Eastern Europe, was finally defeated in the Battle of Vienna by German and Polish Christian armies.

    This nonsense has been going on for 1,400 years! The sad thing is that more than half of all politicians do not even know any of this.

    If these battles had not been won, we would most likely be speaking Arabic. And Christianity could be non-existent. Judaism certainly would not exist!

    Reality check: A lot of Americans have become so insulated from reality that they imagine America can suffer defeat without any inconvenience to themselves.

    Think back: The following events are true historical facts. It has been many years since 1968, but history keeps repeating itself.

    1. In 1968, Robert Kennedy was shot and killed by a Muslim male.

    2. In 1972, at the Munich Olympics, Israeli athletes were kidnapped and massacred by Muslim males.

    3. In 1972, a Pan Am 747 was hijacked and eventually diverted to Cairo where a fuse was lit on final approach. Shortly after landing, it was blown up by Muslim males.

    4. In 1973, a Pan Am 707 was destroyed in Rome – with 33 people killed – when it was attacked with grenades by Muslim males.

    5. In 1979, the United States Embassy in Iran was taken over by Muslim males.

    6. During the 1980s, a number of Americans were kidnapped in Lebanon by Muslim males.

    7. In 1983, the United States Marine barracks in Beirut was blown up by Muslim males.

    8. In 1985, the cruise ship Achille Lauro was hijacked, and a 70-year-old American passenger was murdered and thrown overboard in his wheelchair by Muslim males.

    9. In 1985, TWA Flight 847 was hijacked at Athens, and a United States Navy diver – who was trying to rescue passengers – was murdered by Muslim males.

    10. In 1988, Pan Am Flight 103 was bombed by Muslim males.

    11. In 1993, the World Trade Center was bombed for the first time by Muslim males.

    12. In 1998, the United States embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were bombed by Muslim males.

    13. On 09/11/01, four airliners were hijacked. Two of the planes were used as missiles to take down the World Trade Centers. One plane crashed into the United States Pentagon, and the other plane was diverted and crashed by the passengers.
    Thousands of people were killed by Muslim males.

    14. In 2002, the United States fought a war in Afghanistan against Muslim males.

    15. In 2002, reporter Daniel Pearl was kidnapped and beheaded by – you guessed it – a Muslim male. (Plus two other American journalists who had just recently been beheaded.)

    16. In 2013, the Boston Marathon bombing resulted in four innocent people, including a child, being killed and 264 other people injured by Muslim males.

    No, I really do not see a pattern here to justify profiling. Do you?

    So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone – particularly fanatics intent on killing us – airport security screeners will no long be allowed to profile certain people.

    So, ask yourself: “Just how stupid are we?!?!”

    Have Americans completely lost their minds or just their “power of reason?”

    As the writer of the award winning story “Forrest Gump” so aptly put it, “Stupid is as stupid does’. you now have the opportunity to send this on to other email contacts. Please do that. Or you can just sit back, keep complaining and do nothing.

    It is strange how the majority of transgenders are males wanting to be females, not just homosexuals in temporary ‘drag’. This phenomenon appears to have exploded over the last 2 decades, which makes me wonder if it is related to hormonal drugs taken by pregnant women.

    Also, with so many absent fathers, young boys have no role model for manliness - and they begin to see their ‘moms’ as running the family and the country.

    Thanks feminists.

    email just received from a trusted friend.

    Mexico is Angry.............

    Wow! And make certain you read, at the bottom of this page, the part that says it will take 30 more seconds to read!

    The shoe is on the other foot and the Mexicans from the State of Sonora, Mexico do not like it. Can you believe the nerve of these people? It’s almost funny. The State of Sonora is angry at the influx of Mexicans into Mexico.

    The state legislators from the Mexican State of Sonora traveled to Tucson to complain about Arizona’s new employer crackdown on illegals from Mexico. It seems that many Mexican illegals re are returning to their hometowns and the officials in the Sonora state 1government are ticked off. A delegation of nine state legislators from Sonora was in Tucson on Tuesday to state that Arizona’s new ‘Employer Sanctions Law’ will have a devastating effect on the Mexican state. At a news conference, the legislators said that Sonora (Arizona’s southern neighbor) made up of mostly of small towns - cannot handle the demand for housing, jobs and schools that it will face as Mexican workers return to their hometowns from the USA without jobs or money.

    The Arizona law, which took effect Jan. 1, punishes Arizona employers who knowingly hire individuals without valid legal documents to work in the United States. Penalties include suspension of, or loss of, their business license. The Mexican legislators are angry because their own citizens are returning to their home towns, placing a burden on THEIR state government instead of ours.

    ‘How can Arizona pass a law like this?’ asked Mexican Rep Leticia Amparano-Gamez, who represents Nogales. ‘There is not one person living in Sonora who does not have a friend or relative working in Arizona,’ she said, speaking in Spanish. ‘Mexico is not prepared for this, for the tremendous problems it will face as more and more Mexicans working in Arizona and who were sending money to their families return to their hometowns in Sonora without jobs,’ she said ‘We are one family, socially and economically,’ she said of the people of Sonora and Arizona.

    Wrong! The United States is a sovereign nation, not a subsidiary of Mexico, and its taxpayers are not responsible for the welfare of Mexico’s citizens. It’s time for the Mexican government, and its citizens, to stop feeding parasitically off the United States and to start taking care of its/their own needs.

    Too bad that other states within the USA don’t pass a law just like that passed by Arizona. Maybe that’s the answer, since our own Congress will do nothing!

    *New Immigration Laws*

    Be sure to read to the bottom or you will miss the message...

    1. There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools.
    2. All ballots will be in this nation’s language.
    3. All government business will be conducted in our language.
    4. Non-residents will NOT have the right to vote no matter how long they are here.
    5. Non-citizens will NEVER be able to hold political office.
    6. Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no food stamps, no health care, or any other government assistance programs. Any who are a burden will be deported.
    7. Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount at least equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage.
    8. If foreigners come here and buy land, their options will be restricted. Certain parcels including waterfront property are reserved for citizens naturally born into this country.
    9. Foreigners may have NO protests; NO demonstrations, NO waving of a foreign flag, no political organizing, NO bad-mouthing our president or his policies. These will lead to deportation.
    10.. If you do come to this country illegally, you will be actively hunted and, when caught, sent to jail until your deportation can be arranged. All assets will be taken from you.

    Too strict you say? The above laws are the current immigration laws of MEXICO! If it’s good for Americans to obey Mexican laws, then it’s got to be good vice versa.!!!

    This will take less than thirty seconds to read. If you agree, please pass it on. An idea whose time has come: Somehow, that doesn’t seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law. The self-serving must stop. This is a good way to do that. It is an idea whose time has come. Have each person contact a minimum of twenty people on their address list, in turn ask each of those to do likewise.

    In three days, most people in The United States of America will have read the message. This is one proposal that really should be passed around.

    You are one of my 20. If you don’t have twenty, pass it on to whatever number you can!

    “The problems we face today exist because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    Pretty funny… (But about True)

    Do You Know Someone Suffering From Trump Unacceptance & Resistance Disorder (TURD)? Know the signs, spot the symptoms, and save a life.

    TURD is a pattern of pathologically dissociative and psychotic behavior, first observed in the late hours of November 8th 2016, and increasing in severity with passing time.

    Sufferers of TURD often exhibit pronounced cognitive dissonance, sudden bouts of rage, rioting, and uncontrollable crying.

    People with TURD are characterized by a persistent unwillingness to accept that Donald Trump is going to Make America Great Again.

    TURD Is caused by the election of Donald Trump as President for these United States of America. For many, both in America and worldwide, this was a shocking and unexpected outcome; their preferred news sources having failed to inform them that the alternative candidate was a criminal parasite in such ill health she got chucked into the back of a van like a kidnap victim.

    Research is ongoing, but TURD appears to correlate closely with the following environmental and behavioral factors:
    1.) Membership in the Democratic Party
    2.) Identifying as a Feminist.
    3.) Currently enrolled in college and/or possession of a Liberal Arts college degree.
    4.) Living in a densely populated metropolitan area.
    5.) Massive student debt.
    6.) Spotty or non-existent work history.

    Patients with TURD are very resistant to treatment, and dangerous in large groups. Any possibility of treatment requires that they may be separated from their hive-mind support apparatus; they cannot begin the process of accepting reality in the presence of encouragement towards delusion and irrationality. Separation may require the assistance of law enforcement.

    If you have a friend or loved one suffering from TURD, urge them to seek treatment. Together we can beat this scourge, and Make America Great Again.

    A Letter from


    For some reason, people have difficulty structuring their arguments when arguing against supporting the currently proposed immigration revisions. This lady made the argument pretty simple. NOT printed in the Orange County

    Paper .....

    Newspapers simply won’t publish letters to the editor which they either deem politically incorrect (read below) or which do not agree with the philosophy they’re pushing on the public. This woman wrote a great letter to the editor that should have been published; but, with your help, it will get published via cyberspace!

    From: “David LaBonte”

    My wife, Rosemary, wrote a wonderful letter to the editor of the OC Register which, of course, was not printed. So, I decided to “print” it myself by sending it out on the Internet. Pass it along if you feel so inclined. Written in response to a series of letters to the editor in the Orange County Register:

    Dear Editor:
    So many letter writers have based their arguments on how this land is made up of immigrants. Ernie Lujan for one, suggests we should tear down the Statue of Liberty because the people now in question aren’t being treated the same as those who passed through Ellis Island and other ports of entry.

    Maybe we should turn to our history books and point out to people like Mr. Lujan why today’s American is not willing to accept this new kind of immigrant any longer. Back in 1900 when there was a rush from all areas of Europe to come to the United States, people had to get off a ship and stand in a long line in New York and be documented. Some would even get down on their hands and knees and kiss the ground.

    They made a pledge to uphold the laws and support their new country in good and bad times. They made learning English a primary rule in their new American households and some even changed their names to blend in with their new home.

    They had waved good-bye to their birth place to give their children a new life and did everything in their power to help their children assimilate into one culture.

    Nothing was handed to them. No free lunches, no welfare, no labor laws to protect them. All they had were the skills and craftsmanship they had brought with them to trade for a future of prosperity.

    Most of their children came of age when World War II broke out. My father fought alongside men whose parents had come straight over from Germany , Italy , France and Japan . None of these 1st generation Americans ever gave any thought about what country their parents had come from.

    They were Americans fighting Hitler, Mussolini and the Emperor of Japan . They were defending the United States of America as one people.

    When we liberated France , no one in those villages were looking for the French-American or the German-American or the Irish-American. The people of France saw only Americans. And we carried one flag that represented one country.

    Not one of those immigrant sons would have thought about picking up another country’s flag and waving it to represent who they were. It would have been a disgrace to their parents who had sacrificed so much to be here.

    These immigrants truly knew what it

    meant to be an American. They stirred the melting pot into one Red, White and Blue bowl.

    And here we are with a new kind of immigrant who wants the same rights

    and privileges. Only they want to

    achieve it by playing with a different

    set of rules, one that includes the entitlement card and a guarantee of being faithful to their mother country.

    I’m sorry, that’s not what being an American is all about. I believe that the immigrants who landed on Ellis Island in the early 1900’s deserve better than that for all the toil, hard work and sacrifice in raising future generations to create a land that has become a beacon for those legally searching for a better life.

    I think they would be appalled that they are being used as an example by those waving foreign country flags.

    And for that suggestion about taking down the Statue of Liberty , it happens to mean a lot to the citizens who are voting on the immigration bill. I wouldn’t start talking about dismantling the United States just yet.

    Rosemary LaBonte


    I sincerely hope this letter gets read by millions of people all across the nation!
