House Minority Leader Lawrence F. Cafero Jr., R-Norwalk, pictured standing, far right, speaks while colleagues Rep. Barbara Lambert, D-Milford and Rep. Jack F. Hennessy, D-Bridgeport, play solitaire Monday night as the House convened to vote on a new budget. (AP)
The guy sitting in the row in front of these two….he’s on Facebook, and the guy behind Hennessy is checking out the baseball scores.
These are the folks that couldn’t get the budget out by Oct. 1, and are about to control your health care, cap and trade, and the list goes on and on….
Should we buy them larger screen computers – or – a ticket home, permanently?

This is one of their 3-DAY WORK WEEKS that we all pay for (salary is about $179,000 per year).

A Dog’s Purpose?

On December 8, 2010, in Uncategorized, by Mark Hope

A Dog’s Purpose?

Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a
ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker.
The dog’s owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very
attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.

I examined Belker and found he was
dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn’t do anything for him and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for
the old dog in their home.

As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought
it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as
though Shane might learn something from the experience.

The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker’s
family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time,
that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, slipped peacefully away.

The little boy seemed to accept Belker’s
transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while
after Belker’s Death, wondering aloud about the sad
fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives.

Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, ”I know
why.”

Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth
next stunned me. I’d never heard a more comforting explanation. It has changed
the way I try and live.

He said,”People are born so that
they can learn how to live a good life like loving everybody all the time and
being nice, right?”

The Six-year-old continued,”Well,
dogs already know how to do that, so they don’t have to stay as long.”

Live simply.

Love generously.

Care deeply.

Speak kindly.

Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things
like:

When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.

Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.

Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face
to be pure Ecstasy.

Take naps.

Stretch before rising.

Run, romp, and play daily.

Thrive on attention and let people touch you.

Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.

On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.

On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.

When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.

Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

Be loyal.

Never pretend to be something you’re not.

If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.

When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by,
and nuzzle them gently.

ENJOY EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY!

 

Plus Size!

On December 1, 2010, in Uncategorized, by Mark Hope

I am calling BullShit on plus sizes! I got an email this morning which I will include at the bottom of this post and I thought to myself that this looks like a normal looking woman. America as a whole is pretty fat and yes we need to work on our health as it relates to being overweight but come on!

This woman is NOT obese, she looks healthy and I think that a woman should look like a woman, not a 12 year old boy.. Just Sayin! I think it does more harm than good to portray anything but rail thin as a negative body image. I will take a normal person with a normal body and a great self concept any day.

I am also not saying we shouldn’t be honest with ourselves, I am fat, and I am also working on it with diet and a fitness program. Call me plus size! Putting photos of normal sized people in the media and calling them “Plus Size” is just another example of doing it wrong!

When you look at this picture you see it’s Albert Einstein..
But if you stand 15 feet away it will become Marilyn Monroe.

Now what do you think of the reliability of eyewitness testimony?

 

Obama Fans!

On November 9, 2010, in Uncategorized, by Mark Hope

A teacher in New York asked her 6th grade class how many of them were Obama fans…

Not really knowing what an Obama fan was, but wanting to be liked by the teacher, all the kids raised their hands except for Little Johnny.

The teacher asked Little Johnny why he decided to be Different… again.

Little Johnny said, ‘Because I’m not an Obama fan.

The teacher said, ‘Why aren’t you an Obama fan?’

Johnny said, ‘Because I’m a Republican.’

The teacher asked why he’s a Republican.

Little Johnny answered, ‘Well, My Mom’s a Republican and my Dad’s a Republican, so I’m a Republican.’

The teacher asks, ‘If your Mom was a moron and your Dad was an idiot, what would that make you?’

With a big smile, Little Johnny replied, ‘That would make me an Obama fan..’

I always liked Little Johnny

Numb Nuts

A picture is worth a thousand words………………………….

 

Pelosi flew into New York aboard Air Force One with President Obama, on Sept 22nd, who was to address the United Nations and then head for a fund-raiser at the Roosevelt Hotel.

Pelosi was going straight to the fund-raiser, so she opted for a motorcade rather than hitch a ride on the presidential helicopter.

She climbed into a limousine expecting to be whisked away with a police escort, only to be informed the area was frozen until Obama had safely flown away.

Pelosi decided that the freeze could not apply to her. She sent her security detail over to inform the Secret Service and the Port Authority police that she desired to depart immediately.

The Pelosi detail came over with a look that said they had to ask because their boss was insisting. The reply was what they knew it would be.

“No.”

After 10 minutes at the very most, Obama departed and Pelosi’s motorcade was immediately allowed to proceed.

She would have done well to retain the perspective her 5-year-old grandson showed while riding with her in her first motorcade the day she became speaker.

“This is great! This is what I want to be when I grow up,” the boy said, by her account.

“You want to be speaker of the House?” she asked.

“No, I want to be a motorcycle policeman,” the boy said.

Shame on you Nancy! Even at 5 your grandson gets it.

 

More Bullshit on “Undocumented” Criminals

On October 29, 2010, in Uncategorized, by Mark Hope

I Am the Democratic Liberal-Progressive’s Worst Nightmare.

I am a White, Conservative, Tax-Paying, Gun Owning, Biker.

I am a small business owner. I work hard and long hours to take care of my family and help my employees take care of their families.

I believe in God and the freedom of religion, but I don’t push it on others.

I ride Harley Davidson Motorcycles, and drive American-made cars, and I believe in American products and buy them whenever I can.

I believe the money I make belongs to me and not some liberal governmental functionary, Democratic or Republican, that wants to share it with others who don’t work!

I’m in touch with my feelings and I like it that way!

I think owning a gun doesn’t make you a killer; it makes you a smart American.
I believe that all gun owners should seek training because owning a gun doesn’t make you armed any more than owning a piano makes you a musician.

I think being a minority does not make you noble or victimized, and does not entitle you to anything. Get over it!

I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac or any other item, you should do it in English. I believe there should be no other language option.

I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God when and where they want to.

My heroes are my Father & my Grandfathers and my brothers that faced death with dignity and grace, if anyone else reaches hero status with me I will update this letter.
I don’t hate the rich. I don’t pity the poor.

I know wrestling is fake and I don’t waste my time watching or arguing about it.

I’ve never owned a slave, nor was a slave. I haven’t burned any witches or been persecuted by the Turks, and neither have you!

I believe if you don’t like the way things are here, go back to where you came from and change your own country!

This is AMERICA …We like it the way it is and more so the way it was …so stop trying to change it to look like Russia or China, or other socialist country!

If you were born here and don’t like it… you are free to move to any Socialist country that will have you. (And take Barack Hussein Obama and his group with you.) Massachusetts started the ball rolling. Keep it going.

I believe it is time to really clean house, starting with the White House, the seat of our biggest problems.

I want to know which church is it, exactly, where the Reverend Jesse Jackson preaches, where he gets his money, and why he is always part of the problem and not the solution.

Can I get an AMEN on that one?

I also think the cops have the right to pull you over if you’re breaking the law, regardless of what color you are, but not just because you happen to ride a bike.

And, no, I don’t mind having my face shown on my driver’s license.

I think it’s good…. And I’m proud that ‘God’ is written on my money.

I think if you are too stupid to know how a ballot works, I don’t want you deciding who should be running the most powerful nation in the world for the next four years.

I dislike those people standing in the intersections trying to sell me stuff or trying to guilt me into making ‘donations’ to their cause…. Get a job and do your part to support yourself and your family!

I believe that it doesn’t take a village to raise a child, it takes two parents….

I believe ‘illegal’ is illegal no matter what the lawyers think!

If this makes me a BAD American, then yes, I’m a BAD American.

If you are a BAD American too, please forward this blog to everyone you know….

We want our country back!
My Country…..

I hope this offends all illegal aliens.

This message needs to be viewed by every American; and every American needs to stand up for America.

We’ve bent over to appease the America-haters long enough. I’m taking a stand.

I’m standing up because the hundreds of thousands who died fighting in wars for this country, and for the American flag.

If you agree, stand up with me. If you disagree, please let me know. I want to hear your point of view.

And shame on anyone who tries to make this a racist message.

AMERICANS, stop giving away Your RIGHTS!

Let me make this clear! THIS IS MY COUNTRY!

This statement DOES NOT mean I’m against immigration!

YOU ARE WELCOME HERE, IN MY COUNTRY, welcome to come legally:

1. Get a sponsor!

2. Learn the LANGUAGE, as immigrants have in the past!

3. Live by OUR rules!

4. Get a job!

5. Pay YOUR Taxes!

6. No Social Security until you have earned it and Paid for it !

7. NOW find a place to lay your head!

If you don’t want to forward this for fear of offending someone, then YOU’RE PART OF THE PROBLEM !

We’ve gone so far the other way . . . bent over backwards not to offend anyone.

Only AMERICANS seems to care when American Citizens are being offended!

WAKE UP America! ! !
