Excellent idea for where the change comes from…

I absolutely LOVE this!!!

Subject: Executive Decision

TO: Fellow Business Executives:

As the CFO of this business that employees 140 people, I have
resigned myself to the fact that Barrack Obama will be our next
President, and that our taxes and government fees will increase in  
a BIG way.

To compensate for these increases, I figure that the clients will
have to see an increase in our fees to them of about 8% but since we
cannot increase our fees right now due to the dismal state of our
economy, we will have to lay off six of our employees instead.  This
has really been eating at me for a while, as we believe we are
family here and I didn’t know how to choose who will have to go.

Obama and the Liberals about Deaths in Iraq

Filed under: Current Events,Politics — Tags: , , — Scott @

None of this is good, but can we stop hearing about all the deaths in Iraq?  Should we pull out of Chicago?

Body count. In the last six months 292 killed (murdered) in Chicago, 221 killed in Iraq. 

Sens. Barack Obama & Dick Durbin, Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., Gov. Rod Blogojevich, House leader Mike Madigan, Atty. Gen. Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike), Mayor Richard M. Daley (son of Mayor Richard J. Daley)…..our leadership in Illinois…..all Democrats.

 

Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago. Of course they’re all blaming each other.

I can’t possibly ad anything to these unbelievable photos.  Just some of many that show just how bad it was for Galveston, Texas.

Evacuee Behavior – Hurricane Gustav

Similar stories were common coming out of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and they need to be heard.  This is absolutely ridiculous.  This is how people act?  Deplorable.

This past spring into summer (2008) there was catastrophic flooding in Iowa – if you watched the Olympics you heard about Shawn Johnson’s hometown flooding.  That was the case over much of the state of Iowa, a disaster very near the level of any hurricane, homes were destroyed, livelihoods taken.  

What didn’t come out of Iowa were stories like this one.  Nobody looted, nobody begged for handouts, nobody cried racism, nobody blamed the Federal Gov’t, nobody blamed anybody.  Instead people helped their friends and neighbors the best they could; people acted like human beings.

Express Ticket to Hell

A lot of people do a lot of bad things.  And if you believe in Karma maybe it’s OK because what goes around comes around.

Perhaps you believe in hell, perhaps you don’t but I think we’ll all agree, if there is a hell this is a great way to ensure your spot.
