This year, the month of August will count 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. This phenomenon occurs only once every 823 years. Chinese people call it: ‘Pocketful of money!’
So... send this to all your friends and in 4 days, you will have a pleasant monetary surprise...
Based on Chinese Feng Shui.  Whoever does not send a link to this blog post ... could find himself without a clue of what’s going on in his life... and that’s no laughing matter.

To all the kids who survived the 1930's, 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's!!


TO ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED the 1930's, 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's!!

First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they were pregnant.

They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn't get tested for diabetes.

Then after that trauma, we were put to sleep o n our tummies in baby cribs covered with bright colored lead-based paints. We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets, not to mention, the risks we took hitchhiking.

As infants &children, we would ride in cars with no car seats, booster seats, seat belts or air bags.

Riding in the back of a pick up on a warm day was always a special treat.

We drank water from the garden hose and NOT from a bottle.

We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and NO ONE actually died from this.
We ate cupcakes, white bread and real butter and drank Kool-aid made with sugar, but we weren't overweight because,

WE WERE ALWAYS OUTSIDE PLAYING! We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on.

No one was able to reach us all day. And we were O.K.

We would spend hours building our go- carts out of scraps and then ride down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem.

We did not have Play Stations, Nintendo's, X-boxes, no video games at all, no 150 channels on cable, no video movies or DVD's, no surround-sound or CD's, no cell phones, no personal computer's, no Internet or chat rooms......

WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!

We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no lawsuits from these accidents.

We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever.

We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays, made up games with sticks and tennis balls and, although we were told it would happen, we did not poke out very many eyes. We rode bikes or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just walked in and talked to them!
Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn't had to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!!

The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law!

These generations have produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever!

The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas.

We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned HOW TO DEAL WITH IT ALL!

If YOU are one of them CONGRATULATIONS!

You might want to send a link to this to others who have had the luck to grow up as kids, before the lawyers and the government regulated so much of our lives for our own good .

While you are at it, send a link to your kids so they will know how brave (and lucky) their parents were.

Kind of makes you want to run through the house with scissors, doesn't it?!

Jay Leno said: 
'With hurricanes,tornadoes, fires out of control, mud slides, flooding, severe thunderstorms tearing up the country from one end to another, and with the threat of bird flu and terrorist attacks, are we sure this is a good time to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance?'

US Congress joke

An Indian walks into a cafe with a rifle in one hand and pulling a male buffalo with the other.

He says to the waiter:

"Want coffee."

The waiter says, "Sure, Chief. Coming right up."

He gets the Indian a tall mug of coffee.
The Indian drinks the coffee down in one gulp, turns and blasts the buffalo with the rifle, causing parts of the animal to splatter everywhere  and then just walks out.


The next morning the Indian returns. He has his rifle in one hand,
pulling another male buffalo with the other.

He walks up to the counter and says to the waiter:
"Want coffee."

The waiter says, "Whoa, Tonto!
We're still cleaning up your mess from yesterday!
 
What was that all about, anyway?"

The Indian smiles and proudly says,

"Training for a position as Democratic Senator of the  United States CongressCome in, drink coffee, shoot the bull, leave mess
for others to clean up, disappear for rest of day."

Why is the USA bankrupt?


It's easy to dismiss individual government programs until they're put together and this picture emerges.
Someone did a lot of research to put together all of this data.
Often these programs are buried within other programs, making them difficult to find.
 A RealM-Eye Opener
WHY is the USA BANKRUPT?

You think the war in Iraq was costing  us too much?

Read this:

We have been hammered with the
propaganda that it was the Iraq war and  the war on terror that is  bankrupting us.

I hope the following 14 reasons are  forwarded over and over again until they are read so many times that the reader gets sick of reading them. 

1.
$11 Billion to $22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal aliens each year by state governments.


2.
$22 Billion dollars a year is spent on food  assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal aliens.

3.
$2.5 Billion dollars a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal aliens. 


4.
$12 Billion dollars a year is spent on primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and they cannot speak a word of English!



5.
$17 Billion dollars a year is spent for  education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies.


6.
$3 Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens. 


7.
30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens.


8.
$90 Billion Dollars a year is spent on illegal aliens for Welfare & social services by the American taxpayers.



9.
$200 Billion dollars a year in suppressed  American wages are caused by the illegal  aliens.


13.
In 2006, Illegal aliens sent home 
$45 BILLION in remittances to their countries of origin.


14.
The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration:
Nearly One million sex crimes committed  by Illegal Immigrants In The United States.

M
The total cost is a whopping
$ 338.3 BILLION DOLLARS 
A YEAR AND IF YOU'RE LIKE ME,
HAVING TROUBLE UNDERSTANDING
THIS AMOUNT OF MONEY; IT IS
$338,300,000,000.00 
WHICH WOULD BE ENOUGH TO STIMULATE THE ECONOMY FOR THE CITIZENS OF  THIS COUNTRY.
Are we THAT Stupid?
YES,  FOR ALLOWING THOSE
IN THE U.S. CONGRESS
TO GET AWAY WITH DOING THIS YEAR AFTER YEAR!!!!!

Golf joke

A man was at the country club for his weekly round of golf. He began his round with an eagle on the first hole and a birdie on the second.

On the third hole he had just scored his first ever hole-in-one when his cell phone rang.

It was a doctor notifying him that his wife had just been in a terrible accident and was in critical condition and in the ICU.

The man told the doctor to inform his wife where he was and that he'd be there as soon as possible. As he hung up he realized he was leaving  what was shaping up to be his best ever round of golf. He decided to get in a couple of more holes before heading to the hospital.

He ended up playing all eighteen, finishing his round shooting a personal best 61, shattering the club record by five strokes and beating his previous best game by more than 10. He was jubilant...then he remembered his wife. Feeling guilty he dashed to the hospital. He saw the doctor in the corridor and asked about his wife's condition. 

The doctor glared at him and shouted, "You went ahead and finished your round of golf didn't you!

"I hope you're proud of yourself! While you were out for the past four hours enjoying yourself at the country club your wife has been languishing in the ICU! It's just as well you went ahead and finished that round because it will be more than likely your last!" "For the rest of her life she will require 'round the clock care. And you'll be her care giver!"

The man was feeling so guilty he broke down and sobbed.

The doctor snickered and said, "Just screwing with you. She's dead. What'd you shoot?"
