Bill Cosby has a great way of “distilling”things.
Looks like he’s done it again!
(AMERICA NEEDS A CANDIDATE WITH THIS PLATFORM!!)
I (Bill Cosby) HAVE DECIDED TO BECOME A WRITE-IN CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT IN THE YEAR 2012.
HERE IS MY PLATFORM:
(1). Any use of the phrase: ‘Press 1 for English’is immediately BANNED!!! English is the official language; speak it or wait outside of our borders until you can.
(2). We will immediately go into a two year isolationist attitude in order to straighten out the greedy big business posture in this country. America will allow NO imports, and we’ll do no exports. We will use the ‘Wal-Mart‘s policy, ‘If we ain’t got it, you don’t need it.’ We’ll make it here and sell it here!
(3). When imports are allowed, there will be a 100% import tax on it coming in here.
(4). All retired military personnel will be required to man one of the many observation towers located on the southern border of the United States (six month tour). They will be under strict orders notto fire onSOUTH BOUND aliens.
(5). Social Security will immediately return to its original state. If you didn’t put nuttin in, you AIN’T getting nuttin out. Neither the President nor any other politician will be able to touch it.
(6). Welfare. — Checks will be handed out on Fridays, at the end of the 40 hour school week, the successful completion of a urinalysis test for drugs, and passing grades.
(7). Professional Athletes — Steroids? The FIRST time you check positive you’re banned from sports … for life.
(8). Crime — We will adopt the Turkish method, i.e., the firsttime you steal, you lose your right hand. There is no more ‘life sentences’. If convicted of murder, you will be put to death by the same method you chose for the victim you killed: gun, knife, strangulation, etc.
(9). One export of ours will be allowed: wheat; because the world needs to eat. However, a bushel of wheat will be the EXACT price of a barrel of oil.
(10). All foreign aid, using American taxpayer money, will immediately cease and the saved money will help to pay off the national debt and, ultimately, lower taxes. When disasters occur around the world, we’ll ask The American People if they want to donate to a disaster fund, and each citizen can make the decision as to whether, or not, it’s a worthy cause.
(11). The Pledge of Allegiance will be said EVERY day at school and every day in CONGRESS.
(12). The National Anthem will be played at all appropriate ceremonies, sporting events, outings, etc.
My apology is offered if I’ve stepped on anyone’s toes …. nevertheless…..
Sincerely, Bill Cosby
A candidate for everyone, no matter which side of the fence they’re on.
My very dear friend came across this video. I had begun a research of material concerning the end of days and the scientific reason for the mass bird and fish deaths world wide. I had begun looking into HAARP, but the MSM had not mentioned anything in relation to governmental magnetic antennae farms performing experiments in these locations where the deaths had occured. I am placing this video on my front page, which also appears in my responses to the last blog on this same subject. I am also going to say that since the video had been made their have been reports provided from the government itself on poisoning of the grackels to control the over-population. It would seem that if this were so,…the communities in which this was going to take place would have been alerted to avoid any further problems, such as possible poison to humans that come in contact with the dead birds. I don’t know,…just my opinion.
Please feel free to comment on any of this or send any information.

A movie on our recent moves of politics and the economy, another scary story for the month of October.
Watch and see if you agree or disagree with the information.
Once upon a time,….Long, long, ago, in a faraway land, it was a time of political censorship, where women had few rights and fairy-tales were one way that they could make their opinions known. The fairies themselves in the tales often stood for the aristocrats, having power over many but often caring little, bickering amongst themselves, concerned with their own power struggles. The heroines would comment on the double-standards of the times, arranged marriages, and the false glory of war; the tales also illustrated the authors’ ideas on the standards of correct manners, justice and love.
The tales were also written in opposition to the literary establishment at the time, which championed Classical literature as the standard for French writers to follow. Fairy-tales were modelled on French folklore and the courtly love of medieval literature. When Perrault joined them in writing fairy-tales, he was taking a stand for the modern style and for women’s tales (although his tales did not exactly feature liberated females– should have been around in the 60’s. I wonder how the stories would play out now?). The “Quarrel of the Ancients and the Moderns” was part of the society which the fairy tales rebelled against – for most women there was no choice over which side to take, as they weren’t considered worthy of eductating in Latin and Greek anyway. Instead of being forced out, they formed their own style.
Today, there are those who still feel the reformation of socially political statutes/harnesses regarding the female gender should have remained in place (yet secretly they still go to strip clubs and buy Maxim or Playboy). They teach that women’s talk has been frightening and dangerous since even before the Church taught that Eve’s words (heh, heh, body language most likely) tempted Adam to eat that damn fruit ( which we all know to be a figurative form of speech and not actually partaking of real fruit was the sin- wait…. I can go off on a tangent with this, so, I will stop here) and led to the “fall”. They preach how dear St. Paul even wrote that women should be silent, and warned others against their idle gossip. The talk of women was seductive and wicked (yeah, I am sure that is what every man is thinking…. how they love their woman to NOT be seductive or a little wicked… Pfffft!!!)
But politics have changed. Women are able to have their own voice, thoughts and lead other packs of women in this rat race.
The sun came out on the Dark Ages ” long, long, ago”.
The only fairy-tales of today would include that Cinderella is a multimillionaire, married to none other than the owner of Mr. Clean company products and she works in interior design. Sleeping Beauty decided 16 was way too young to get hitched, never cared to learn homecrafts, like sewing/spinning, got the alarm setting fixed on her iphone and teaches kick boxing at the Rec. Snow White lives in a studio flat out in Beverly Hills and has changed her name to Katy Perry (she still thinks she is marrying a prince….must have nibbled a bit more on that apple).
Today, women no longer believe in fairy-tales, even if we are still spoon fed the sweet, “happily ever after’s” as children (except for on our most down of days, when we are hanging on to the last threads of hope, there might still be a real fairy-tale out there waiting to be lived). For the most part, it’s always later on in our lives the real world monsters of politics get us, we run through a slew of broken hearts/dreams and grit our teeth to become the dragon slayers. It is just as much a woman’s world as it is a man’s. If there happens to be a real prince or princess warrior who rides up next to us, they are welcome to join in for the battle and follow up with dinner and a night cap. We are forced to make our own ways. We evolve in the limelight of our future to exceed beyond our past expectations of fantasy.
It makes perfect sense the word politics would stem from two seperate words, “poli-“, meaning many and “tics”, meaning blood sucking creatures. And that is all I have to say on the subject today, besides, Uuuugghhhhh 😛 ! The rest would get me bumped for inappropriate usage of words.
THE $50 LESSON
I recently asked my friends’ little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up.
She said she wanted to be President of the United States. Both of her parents, liberal Democrats, were standing there. So I asked her, “If you were President, what would be the first thing you would do?” She replied, “I’d give food and houses to all the homeless people..” Her parents beamed.
“Wow…what a worthy goal,” I told her. “But you don’t have to wait until you’re President to do that. You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and sweep my driveway, and I’ll pay you $50. Then I’ll take you over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use toward food and a new house.
” She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked, “Why doesn’t the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50?
” I said, “Welcome to the Republican Party.” Her parents still aren’t speaking to me.
Okay,…so it is kind of a cheesy little joke, but I thought someone might read it and get at least one smile out of it.
Besides, I am out of thoughts at the moment and maybe tomorrow might bring something new to think on.
Oh,…and one more thing. How does eveyone feel about the overturn on Proposition 8 in Cal-I-forn-I-A? Do you even care?
Number one reason to travel:
Travel is true healing, it is not just a luxury.
For thousands of years travel has been used to discover new truths, cures, realities, and to make new beginnings. We see the world through our own curiosities and with open eyes like that of a child.We bring these new findings home with us as a sort of boon to share with our family and friends. Without realizing it, travel makes us responsible and caring citizens of the world. It causes us to break out of our territorial bubbles and take in accounts of all ways of life outside our own. We see differently and gain new perspectives of things taught or learned. Broadening horizon of self and branching into distant lands and cultures is not only healing, it is growth for the soul.
In as much as it expands our life experiences, sometimes the differences can alarm those who go unprepared. Depending on where you are planning to go, it could be vital to know acceptable cultural practices when visiting a foreign country.
Here are a few tips for those who have not yet expounded on life through travel:
(tips via Google)
Research the destination country. Look into the history and current governmental set-up as well as the nation’s political past. Talk to friends who have traveled in the area.
If needed, take an intensive language course to learn some of the basics. Practice daily to build a vocabulary that will allow rudimentary communication with the locals. Remember that the locals applaud any effort to speak to them in their native language.
Appreciate the differences. Explore different foods and preparations methods. Take every opportunity to enjoy local cuisine. Stay away from the local franchise of American fast food restaurants.
Learn about local customs, traditions and standards of etiquette. Take cues from the locals, especially when uncertain how to behave. Observe the behavior of the general public and follow suit.
Dress conservatively and with respect to local customs, especially when visiting religious sites. Leave “message” and logo t-shirts at home. Wear comfortable walking shoes instead of sneakers.
Be aware of local laws regarding alcohol consumption, smoking, operating a motor vehicle, money exchange and other common behaviors. Abide the laws and expect no special treatment for ignorance of them.
Tips & Warnings
Be aware of the surroundings. Understand that a few locals may make a living preying on unsuspecting tourists. Mind personal possessions, stay in well populated areas and use common sense.
Remember that a smile is understood around the world. Be polite and patient and appreciate the local customs, traditions and ways of doing things.
