A Joke Gone Awry

Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House in D.C.; One from Illinois one from Tennessee and a third from Kentucky . They all go with a White House official to examine the fence.

The Tennessee contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a pencil.

'Well', he says, 'I figure the job will run about $900: $400 for materials, $400 for my crew and $100 profit for me.'

The Kentucky contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, 'I can do this job for ! ! $700: $300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit for me.'

The Illinois contractor doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to the White House official and whispers, '$2,700.'

The official, incredulous, whispers back, 'You didn't even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?'

The Illinois contractor whispers back, '$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we hire that guy from Kentucky to fix the fence.'

'Done!' replies the government official.

Wesboro Baptist Church Slammed with $10M Decision

We've talked about the "Phelp's family church" before, that ever so understanding group of hate-mongers that has made it a point to make themselves a loud presence at the funerals of AIDS victims and fallen soldiers. Actually, they try to show up anywhere they know they'll get media attention. We haven't posted much about the fact that they've been denied entry into Canada and England mainly because there were other things going on. However, the fact that the suit brought against the church's leaders by the father of Lance Cpl Matthew Snyder has been decided on is something that cannot be missed!

Episode 65: Call me A Coward One More Time

I had to start the show tonight with a comment that I received via IM - that a friend of mine is getting more and more hostile when it comes to politics and where the Democrats are taking this country.

 My comment to her, and in general, is that while Thomas Jefferson did say "I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical", he was also talking in a time when people did not have the right to express themselves. As with war and taxes, the way we must conduct ourselves in the return to Conservative principles must be thought about carefully. 

Tonight we paid special attention to the statement of Eric Holder, who called the American people "cowards" when it came to race issues. Ken and I discussed his comments and the absurdity of them at length. In addition we brought in the comments of Lawernce Fishbourne from The View to get another interesting take on the comments and the "state of the races" as he saw them. After that spirited conversation we decided to mention the slipping memory of Senator Burris, who admitted that he did try to raise money for Blagojevich and that now he's done with the media. Ken's only reaction to this - it's Chicago politics, why are people surprised? Finally we did have time to talk for a few minutes about the Mortgage Bailiout and try to understand the what's and why's of this plan.

We had to mention the 4 minute rant by Rick Santelli and talk about the concept of what the bill is proposing and how the "group A" foreclosures are affecting the "group B" home values. In order to close on a good note, the home owners in the neighborhood affected by the crash of flight 3407 are going to be allowed back into their homes soon. Also, the people in charge of the mainly volunteer recovery effort have been approached by organizations asking how they were able to so effectively organize resources!

Episode 64: Don't Be Surprised!

Tonight's show started with a moment of silence for those who died in the crash of Continental Flight #3407. Our prayers and thoughts are with their friends and families, those who are working the crash site 24/7 and those who are working behind the scenes both here and at labs throughout the US. With a lot of energy, we talked about the stimulus and what to do about it, a movement in 21 states to assert their sovereignty as defined in the 9th and 10th Amendments, the Obama Administration's "new" foreign policy. We also talked a lot about where things should go and shared some ideas about how to get there. Tonight we were joined by Hannover Dent who normally listens in SecondLife but decided to call in and join the discussion. Links to articles and items discussed in tonight's show:

Episode 63: Crazy for Correct Change

A really fun show tonight with a lot of different topics covered! Not only that but we heard Ken's good news as well as good news from my mom. Along with the callers, there was quite a bit of activity in both the SecondLife and Talkshoe chat rooms. On tonight's show we talked about quite a few things, mainly focusing on Obama's followers (and those who haven't taken the drink), his hypocritical attitude and the "salary cap". Also, there's an ACLU suit that we somewhat agree with! Here's the links:

A Sad Tale of Taxes

This is one of those "forward to your friends" that I got from my mom about taxes - it's long but worth the read: At first I thought this was funny...then I realized the awful truth of it. Be sure to read all the way to the end! Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he's fed.

Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes
Are the rule.

Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts
Anyway!

Edible Porkulus or Votable Porkulus - You Decide!

The guys over at BBQAddicts.com came up with the ultimate pork presentation... the Bacon Explosion. Take two pounds of bacon, two pounds of Italian sausage and one jar each of wet and dry BBQ seasoning, rolled together and cooked on a smoker and what do you get? 5,000 calories and 500 grams of fat! On the same note, be sure to take a look at the Daylight Network - a site that has the Senate version of the Pork... errr... spending bill broken down. They have also built out a way to vote on the spending sections so visitors can rate the pork. Remember - the more pork the lower the score!

Episode 62: The Purpose of Their Actions

A good show for Superbowl Sunday! Ken was out so Adam Graham of the Truth & Hope report joined us. Tonight we talked about Obama's Executive orders & Memos, the Stimulus package and the election of RNC Chairman Michael Steele. I have cleaned up the audio somewhat, bringing Adam's volume up substantially. If you downloaded the show from Talkshoe on Sunday you may want to re-download it.
