THE GEOGRAPHY OF A WOMAN
Between 18 and 22, a woman is like Africa, half discovered, half wild, fertile and naturally beautiful!
Between 23 and 30, a woman is like Europe, well developed and open to trade, especially for someone with cash.
Between 31 and 35, a woman is like Spain, very hot, relaxed and convinced of her own beauty.
Between 36 and 40, a woman is like Greece, gently aging but still a warm and desirable place to visit.
Between 41 and 50, a woman is like Great Britain, with a glorious and all conquering past.
Between 51 and 60, a woman is like Israel, has been through war and doesn’t make the same mistakes twice, takes care of business.
Between 61 and 70, a woman is like Canada, self-preserving, but open to meeting new people.
After 70, she becomes Tibet, wildly beautiful, with a mysterious past and the wisdom of the ages…only those with an adventurous spirit and a thirst for spiritual knowledge visit there.
THE GEOGRAPHY OF A MAN
Between 1 and 70, a man is like Iran, Ruled by Nuts.

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert announced Saturday, folllwing a Security Cabinent vote in favor of a cease-fire, said that the goals of Israel’s offensive in Gaza had been achieved.
Israel has no immediate plans to withdraw troops from Gaza, but the cease-fire likely will entail the end of Israeli attacks on Hamas now that the militant Palestinian group appears to have been disabled to the point that there is less of a threat of rocket attacks on southern Israel.
U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said Saturday that a unilateral cease-fire should be accompanied by a timetable for withdrawal, and a Hamas spokesman said the group would not stop fighting until Israel is out of Gaza.
Has Hamas been totally destroyed, never to darken Israel’s door again? Will Gilad Shalid be returned to his family, unharmed? If not, then what the hell are they talking about? Ban is a moron, and so is anyone else who caves into the crap.
Mr. Bush, please listen to your federal prosecutor who doggedly tracked down a convicted drug smuggler in Mexico to convict Border Agents Jose Compean and Ignacio Ramos for allegedly over-zealously shooting at the smuggler after a car chase and then a foot sprint back across the border.
To many supporters of the Border Patrol, Prosecutor Sutton himself was guilty of overzealousness in pursuing a criminal conviction of these agents.
But this is what Sutton says about the two agents rotting in prison after two years separation from wives, children, parents and life (with nearly a decade still to serve):
I think a legitimate question, is: ‘Is the punishment too harsh?’ I have always said the punishment in this case was harsh.
If you haven’t sent Pres. Bush a last-minute fax begging for a pardon, please do so.
At stake is the morale of our Border Patrol and their ability to protect us from massive armies of illegal workers coming to steal jobs and put Americans out of work, from drug smugglers, from violent cartels, from terrorists, from slavery rings and from murderous para-military squads.
It’s a free fax! Click on the link! If Bush does NOT pardon these two young men, it will be one of the bigger stains on his presidency. This was not justice, it was a kangaroo court that favored the criminal. Nothing new these days, but still unacceptable.
As Inauguration Day approaches and Barack Obama prepares to assume his first term as president, some in Congress are hoping to make it possible for the Democrat to not only seek a second term in office, but a third and fourth as well.
The U.S. House Committee on the Judiciary is considering a bill that would repeal the Constitution’s 22nd Amendment prohibiting a president from being elected to more than two terms in office.
Rep. Jose Serrano, D-N.Y., earlier this month introduced the bill, H. J. Res. 5, which, according to the bill’s language, proposes “an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President.”
Oh, not just no, but…..
And while we’re at it, how ’bout we impose term limits on the rest of those yahoos in D.C.! Two terms for senators, 4 for congressmen, and a 2 term stint as Speaker of the House! MAX! Enough with the phony elections!
Brat sent me this a couple of days ago, but under the recent circumstances, I kind of forgot. So, as an apology, I’m posting it now.
UPS delivers, but not always to the right address, a Denton man discovered Monday when he found a lot of green inside a package dropped on his porch by the men in brown.
The man took the package to Denton police later that night, police spokesman Officer Ryan Grelle said. It contained a 30-pound brick of compressed marijuana with a street value of $10,500.
UPS mistakenly delivered it to the Denton house about 8 p.m., Grelle said. The resident was not at home at the time and opened it when he returned.
“He was expecting tools that he had ordered from Sears,” Grelle said. “He opened it up and thought, ‘Oh my.’ He loaded it up and brought it to the police department.”
What struck me was not so much they delivered to the wrong address, but that the man had enough integrity to turn it in. I wonder how many people would actually do that these days?
Oh, another thing that hit me…..back in the day, if memory serves, which it may not….a LOOOOOOOONG time ago, you could get an ‘lid’ for $5 or $10, depending on the quality, which WAAAAY back when, was pretty close to an ounce? A kilo ran about $90 to $120. Now, do NOT ask me how I know this, ok?
President-elect Barack Obama is calling on Americans to live up to the courage and sacrifice of the country’s founders as they strive to redeem the promise of freedom.
In a speech to a crowd gathered in a flag-draped waiting from at Philadelphia’s 30th St. train station, Obama talked of the heavy challenges facing people now, including a staggering economy and global warming.
Oh paleeeze! If people were willing “to live up to the courage and sacrifice of the country’s founders”, they sure as hell wouldn’t have elected YOU! And, sir, if you are REALLY serious about that, be prepared for the fight of your life! With all the evidence pointing to a global COOLING, you’d think this bozo would knock of the fabrications. But hey, he wants to suck the life out of people and money out of their pockets, so, with his puppeteers pulling his strings, he helps perpetrate the fraud.
National Intelligence Director Michael McConnell warned Friday that interrogation techniques listed as permitted in the U.S. Army Field Manual are not sufficient to protect the security of the United States.
The retired admiral, who is leaving his post with the change in administrations but will remain an adviser to the new president, was reacting to comments by incoming officials that the Obama administation will bar harsh interrogation measures, such as waterboarding.
Eric H. Holder Jr., the nominee for attorney general, testified Thursday at his confirmation hearing that waterboarding is torture and would be barred under his leadership.
When we these bozos get it through their collective heads? We are not fighting the same kind of enemy as when that manual was written. This is an enemy who has no qualms about lying, slaughtering innocents, even their own, to destroy the “infidel”. Snap out the stupor folks, cuz it’s only going to get worse! Human rights? Pfft! They aren’t human, nor are they civil! And that guy, Holder? BAD CHOICE B. Hussein! Anyone who works so hard to free terrorists is NOT on the our side.
Palestinians fired 10 rockets from the Gaza Strip into southern Israel on Saturday, with one hitting a synagogue in a community near Netivot in the morning.
The building was temporarily empty of worshippers due to a break in morning prayers and no one was wounded in the strike although two people were treated for shock. Heavy damage to the structure was reported.
The synagogue was heavily damaged, but didn’t explode. Know why? Cuz the Israelis don’t store expolsives in their places of worship, unlike the Muslims. And that, boys and girls, is one HUGE difference between the two.
To Southerners, who rarely see temperatures so cold, the icebox-like weather was the most jarring. Construction worker Allen Johnson wore a gray beanie, flannel shirt, long johns and boots as he stopped for coffee in Montgomery, Ala., after an overnight low of 22 degrees Friday.
“No matter how bad it is, it could be worse — we could be in Anchorage, Alaska,” Johnson said. Actually, the temperature was about 20 degrees warmer in Anchorage on Friday.
Osama Bin Laden’s son and possible successor Saad has left house arrest in Iran to join his father in Pakistan, President Bush’s intelligence czar revealed Friday.
“[Saad] has left Iran. He’s not there,” Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell told reporters. “He is probably in Pakistan,” he added, without elaborating.
I seriously doubt he ‘fled’ anything! If he was under ‘house arrest’, I can guaran-damn-tee that he left with the blessing of the Iranian gubmint’s blessing.
Burglars must expect stiff punishment for violating homes, says Britain’s top judge.
The Lord Chief Justice yesterday urged the courts to impose harsh sentences on thieves who target vulnerable victims, steal irreplaceable sentimental items or terrify residents.
Lord Judge said: ‘There is a long-standing, almost intuitive belief that our homes should be our castles.
You mean to tell me someone in GB finally noticed that molly coddling wasn’t working? I’m impressed. Now give ‘em back their guns so they can protect themselves, and you’ll see a SERIOUS drop in burglaries!
Just the phrase “inaugural ball” conjures images of a sea of tuxedoed men and chiffon-swathed women dancing under buttery light, just elbows away from the newly sworn-in president of the United States and the first lady. Over the years, the styles have changed — John F. Kennedy in white tie and tails, or Bill Clinton playing the saxophone — but the common denominator has been immutable: the promise of a ballroom filled with elegance, history, power.
In reality, it’s a bunch of tired people looking for the cash bar or waiting in line at the coat check. In recent decades, a ticket to an inaugural ball, which could cost anywhere from nothing to thousands of dollars, meant entrance to a cavernous hall or hotel ballroom with, more than likely, no place to sit and no food to eat and plenty of human gridlock.
You have NO idea! Just to say you’ve been there is kind of cool, but the reality? Don’t do it! You’ll be miserable, all for a couple of minutes of watching BO and whatsherface dancing on a stage. Big whoop-tee-do!
10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.
12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
13 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:
14 Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:
15 Their feet are swift to shed blood:
16 Destruction and misery are in their ways:
17 And the way of peace have they not known:
18 There is no fear of God before their eyes.
I don’t know the origins of this, but there is a LOT of common sense here.
To All My Valued Employees,
There have been some rumblings around the office about the future of this company, and more specifically, your job. As you know, the economy has changed for the worse and presents many challenges. However, the good news is this: The economy doesn’t pose a threat to your job. What does threaten your job however, is the changing political landscape in this country.
However, let me tell you some little tidbits of fact which might help you decide what is in your best interests.
First, while it is easy to spew rhetoric that casts employers against employees, you have to understand that for every business owner there is a back story. This back story is often neglected and overshadowed by what you see and hear. Sure, you see me park my Mercedes outside. You’ve seen my big home at last years Christmas party. I’m sure; all these flashy icons of luxury conjure up some idealized thoughts about my life.
However, what you don’t see is the back story.
