Have we learned nothing in 2000+ years?

“The budget should be balanced, the treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed, lest Rome becomes bankrupt. People must again learn to work instead of living on public assistance.”                      

By:     Cicero, 55  BC.

A man and his dog

A man and his dog were walking along a road. The man was enjoying the scenery, when it suddenly occurred to him that he was dead. He remembered dying, and that the dog walking beside him had been dead for years. He wondered where the road was leading them. After a while, they came to a high, white stone wall along one side of the road. It looked like fine marble. At the top of a long hill, it was broken by a tall arch that glowed in the sunlight. When he was standing before it he saw a magnificent gate in the arch that looked like mother-of-pearl, and the street that led to the gate looked like pure gold. He and the dog walked toward the gate, and as he got closer, he saw a man at a desk to one side. When he was close enough, he called out, “Excuse me, where are we?”
“This is Heaven, sir,” the man at the gate answered.
“Would you happen to have some water?” the traveler asked.
“Of course, sir. Come right in, and I’ll have some ice water brought right up.” The man gestured, and the gate began to open.
“Can my friend?” gesturing toward his dog, “come in, too?” the traveler asked.
“I’m sorry, sir, but we don’t accept pets.”
The man thought for a moment and then turned back toward the road and continued the way he had been going with his dog. After another long walk, and at the top of another long hill, he came to a dirt road leading through a farm gate that looked as if it had never been closed. There was no fence. As he approached the gate, he saw a man inside, leaning against a tree and reading a book. “Excuse me!” he called to the man. “Do you have any water?”
“Yeah, sure, there’s a pump over there, come on in..”
“How about my friend here?” the traveler gestured to the dog.
“There should be a bowl by the pump.” They went through the gate, and sure enough, there was an old-fashioned hand pump with a bowl beside it. The traveler filled the water bowl and took a long drink himself, then he gave some to the dog. When they were full, he and the dog walked back toward the man who was standing by the tree. “What do you call this place?” the traveler asked.
“This is Heaven,” he answered.
“Well, that’s confusing,” the traveler said. “The man down the road said that was Heaven, too.”
“Oh, you mean the place with the gold street and pearly gates? Nope. That’s hell.’ “
“Doesn’t it make you mad for them to use your name like that?”
“No, we’re just happy that they screen out the folks who would leave their best friends behind.”

Two America’s

I got this in a email message today.  It was the text of the link below edited as if it was an response to Biden’s talk of fighting “income inequality.”  The subject fit very well with what is going on today with the Biden Administration.  Researching the source, I found the original on talk show host Bob Lonsberry’s website.  Much to my surprise it was written in 2013!  However, it is certainly as true today as it was then.

A good read……

Women on Aircraft Carriers

Department of the Navy is now assigning females to quarters in a separate private “OFF LIMITS” area on all aircraft carriers.

While addressing all personnel at Pearl Harbor, CINCPAC advised, “Female sleeping quarters will be “out-of-bounds” for all males.

Anyone caught breaking this rule will be fined $50 the first time.”

And the Admiral continued, “Anyone caught breaking this rule the second time will be fined $150.

Being caught a third time will cost you a fine of $500.  Are there any questions?”

  At this point, a US Marine from the security detail assigned to a ship stood up in the crowd and inquired:

“How much for a season pass?”

God bless the Marine Corps

We need to take a lesson from Israel

It IDF led the Hamas to believe they were mounting a ground attack to drive them into their tunnel network.  Then, bombed the the tunnel network from the air.  I like it.  We need to take a lesson from Israel and apply it to our enemies.
