Political Aphorisms

Our Sunny from Aimless Ramblings shared these with me…I just had to pass them along.  Don’t care what nationality you are, politicians are politicians. Winking smile


If God wanted us to vote, he would have given us candidates.
~Jay Leno~


The problem with political jokes is they get elected.
~Henry Cate, VII~


We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office
~Aesop~


If we got one-tenth of what was promised to us in these State of the Union speeches, there wouldn't be any inducement to go to heaven.
~Will Rogers~


Politicians are the same all over. They promise to build a bridge even where there is no river.
~Nikita Khrushchev~


When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become President; I'm beginning to believe it.
~Clarence Darrow~


Why pay money to have your family tree traced; go into politics and your opponents will do it for you.
~Author unknown~


Politicians are people who, when they see light at the end of the tunnel, go out and buy some more tunnel.
~John Quinton~


Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich, by promising to protect each from the other.
~Oscar Ameringer~


I offer my opponents a bargain: if they will stop telling lies about us, I will stop telling the truth about them.
~Adlai Stevenson, 1952~


A politician is a fellow who will lay down your life for his country.
~ Tex Guinan~


I have come to the conclusion that politics is too serious a matter to be left to the politicians.
~Charles de Gaulle~


Instead of giving a politician the keys to the city, it might be better to change the locks.
~Doug Larson~


There ought to be one day -- just one -- when there is open season on Congressmen.

Singles Cruise

Ed and Nancy met while on a singles cruise and Ed fell head over heels for her.

When they discovered they lived in the same city only a few miles apart Ed was ecstatic.

He immediately started asking her out when they got home.



Within a couple of weeks, Ed had taken Nancy to dance clubs, restaurants, concerts, movies, and museums.

Ed became convinced that Nancy was indeed his soul mate and true love. Every date seemed better than the last.



On the one-month anniversary of their first dinner on the cruise ship, Ed took Nancy to a fine restaurant.

While having cocktails and waiting for their salad, Ed said, I guess you can tell I'm very much in love with you.  I'd like a little serious talk before our relationship continues to the next stage.  So, before I get a box out of my jacket and ask you a life changing question, it's only fair to warn you, I'm a total golf nut.  I play golf, I read about golf, I watch golf on TV.  In short, I eat, sleep, and  breathe golf.  If that's going to be a problem for us, you'd better say so now!"


Nancy took a deep breath and responded, "Ed, that certainly won't be a problem.  I love you as you are and I love golf too; but, since we're being totally honest with each other, you need to know that for the last five years I've been a hooker."



Ed said, "I bet it's because you're not keeping your wrists straight when you hit the ball."

Men

Meredith’s Jack over at New Twist, After All These Years is at it again.  Hope you enjoy!


Pharmacist to customer...
"Sir, please understand, to buy an anti-depression pill you need a proper prescription...Simply showing marriage certificate and wife's picture is not enough".



A prospective husband in a book store…
“Do you have a book called, ‘Husband – the Master of the House’?

 Sales Girl...
“Sir, Fiction and Comics are on the 1st floor!”



Someone asked an old man...
“Even after 70 years, you still call your wife – darling, honey, luv. What’s the secret?"

Old man...

Flat Tire

Yesterday, I had a flat tire on the interstate.  So I eased my car over to the shoulder of the road, carefully got out of the car and opened the trunk.
 
I took out two cardboard men, unfolded them and stood them at the rear of my car facing on-coming traffic.  They looked so life like you wouldn’t believe it!  They’re dressed in open trench coats that exposed their nudity just a bit to the approaching drivers.
 
But to my surprise, cars started slowing down to look at my lifelike men.  And, of course, traffic began backing up.  Everybody tooted their horns and waved like crazy.  It wasn’t long before a state trooper pulled up behind me.
 
He got out of his car and walked towards me.  I could tell he was not a happy camper!
 
“What’s going on here?”
“My car has a flat tire,” I said calmly.
“Well, what the hell are those obscene cardboard men doing here by the road?”
I couldn’t believe that he didn’t know.
 
So I told him, “Helloooooo, those are my emergency flashers!”

Wish I had some of those…would be so fun! Open-mouthed smile

Expensive Funeral

Meredith’s Jack over at New Twist, After All These Years is at it again.  Hope you enjoy!
 blank-headstone-cemetery-closeup-32850328

A man named Bill died. In his will, he asked for an elaborate funeral and his will allocated $100,000 dollars to cover its expenses.    
 
As the last guests departed the affair, his wife Nancy turned to her oldest and dearest friend. 

"Ah well, Bill would be pleased," she  said.
 

"You're right," replied Mary, who lowered her voice and leaned in  close.

"So go on, how much did this really cost?'" 
 

"All of it," said Nancy.  "One hundred thousand." 

"Oh no!!" Mary exclaimed, "I mean, it was very grand, but $100,000?!!" 
 

Nancy answered, "Well the funeral was $12,000. I donated $1,500 to church. The whisky, wine and snacks were another $1,500... and the rest went for the Memorial Stone."

Mary computed  quickly.
 

"For the love of God Nancy, $85,000 for a Memorial Stone? 

HOW BIG IS IT?" 
 

So Nancy showed her...

Personal Ad

Here’s another joke courtesy of our darlin’ Ami over at Ami's Starsong.

An American woman of 40 wants to get married, but she is only willing to marry a man if he has never been with a woman.


After several unsuccessful years of searching, she decides to take out a personal ad.  She ends up corresponding with a man who has lived his entire life in the Australian outback as a bush tracker.


They end up getting married.


On their wedding night, she goes into the bathroom to prepare for the festivities.


When she returns to the bedroom, she finds her new husband standing in the middle of the room, almost naked and all the furniture from the room piled in one corner.


"What's happened?" she asks.



"Well Sheila I've never been with a woman," he says, "but if it's anything like a kangaroo, I'm gonna need all the room I can get !!


She only specified not being with a woman…didn’t say anything about critters. Winking smile

Money Back Guarantee

Here’s another joke courtesy of our darlin’ Ami over at Ami's Starsong.

An Indian Doctor can't find a job in a Hospital in the US, so he opens a clinic and puts a sign outside:

'GET TREATMENT FOR $20 - IF NOT CURED GET BACK $100.'

An American lawyer thinks this is a great opportunity to earn $100 and goes to the clinic...
Lawyer: "I have lost my sense of taste."
Indian: "Nurse, bring medicine from box no. 22 and put 3 drops in patient's mouth."
Lawyer: "Ugh... this is kerosene."
Indian: "Congrats, your sense of taste is restored. Give me $20."

The annoyed lawyer goes back after a few days to recover his money...
Lawyer: "I have lost my memory. I cannot remember anything."
Indian: "Nurse, bring medicine from box no. 22 and put 3 drops in his mouth."
Lawyer (annoyed): "This is kerosene. You gave this to me last time for restoring my taste."
Indian: "Congrats. You got your memory back. Give me $20."

The fuming lawyer pays him, and then comes back a week later determined to get back $100.
Lawyer: "My eyesight has become very weak I can't see at all."
Indian: "Well, I don't have any medicine for that, so take this $100."
Lawyer (staring at the note): "But this is $20, not $100!!"
Indian: "Congrats, your eyesight is restored. Give me $20"

You can't beat Indians!!

Why Sharks Circle You Before Attacking...

Here’s another joke courtesy of our darlin’ Ami over at Ami's Starsong.


"Follow me son" the father shark said to the son shark and they swam to the mass of people.
 
"First we swim around them a few times with just the tip of our fins showing."
 
And they did.
 
 
"Well done, son!  Now we swim around them a few times with all of our fins showing."
 
And they did.
 
 
"Now we eat everybody."
 
And they did.
 
 
When they were both gorged, the son asked, "Dad, why didn't we just eat them all at first? Why did we swim around and around them?"
 
 
His wise father replied, "Because they taste better if you scare the shit out of them first!"

Soft Ginger Cookies

If you remember, Clara from Clara’s Wish, along with another blogger, came to visit in June.  I had made my baked oatmeal and these cookies so they could have some treats when they arrived.  Clara fell in love with both and suggested I post the cookie recipe…so here it is.

Ingredients:
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup margarine, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Sift together the flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and 1 cup sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Beat in the egg, then stir in the water and molasses.
  5. Gradually stir the sifted ingredients into the molasses mixture.
  6. Shape dough into walnut sized balls, and roll them in the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar.
  7. Place the cookies 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet, and flatten slightly.
  8. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven.
  9. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Store in an airtight container.
Notes:
  • These cookies will look as if they still need to bake…don’t be tempted.  Leave them to cool for 5 minutes and test…bet they are soft but firm.
  • Rather than using an airtight container, I just use ziplock bags.
  • These freeze beautifully.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask and if you try the recipe, as always, I would love any feedback you would care to give.





Hope you enjoy!

Baby Exam

A woman and a baby were in the doctor's examining room, waiting for the doctor to come in.

The doctor arrived, examined the baby, checked his weight and found it somewhat below normal.  The doctor asked if the baby was breast fed or bottle fed.

"Breast fed," the woman replied.

"Well, strip down to your waist," the doctor asked. She did.


He pressed, kneaded, rolled, cupped, and pinched both breasts in a detailed, rigorously thorough examination.


Motioning for her to get dressed he said, "No wonder this baby is under weight! You don't have any milk."



"I know," she said, "I'm his grandmother, but I'm glad I came."

Life in the Australian Army

Hey y’all…thank you for the lovely birthday wishes, emails, notes, etc. They were very much appreciated.

In addition to lots of crazy stuff going on in my life, my internet connection speed has been stepped down until after the 15th of the month so I will not be around as much.  I promise I will respond to all your comments but it’s painful at the moment and I keep losing them because of the speed issues.

Meanwhile, I do have posts scheduled so you won’t miss anything. Winking smile

Now…on to the regularly scheduled portion of our program…here’s another joke courtesy of our darlin’ Ami over at Ami's Starsong.  Yes, I did post a similar version a while back but it was about the US Army.

Text of a letter from a kid from Eromanga to Mum and Dad. (For those of you not in the know, Eromanga is a small town, west of Quilpie in the far south west of Queensland )
 
Dear Mum & Dad,
 
I am well.  Hope youse are too.  Tell me big brothers Doug and Phil that the Army is better than workin' on the farm - tell them to get in bloody quick smart before the jobs are all gone!  I wuz a bit slow in settling down at first, because ya don't hafta get outta bed until 6am.  But I like sleeping in now, cuz all ya gotta do before brekky is make ya bed and shine ya boots and clean ya uniform.  No bloody cows to milk, no calves to feed, no feed to stack - nothin'!!  Ya haz gotta shower though, but its not so bad, coz there's lotsa hot water and even a light to see what ya doing!
 
At brekky ya get cereal, fruit and eggs but there's no kangaroo steaks or possum stew like wot Mum makes.  You don't get fed again until noon and by that time all the city boys are buggered because we've been on a 'route march' - geez its only just like walking to the windmill in the back paddock!!
 
This one will kill me brothers Doug and Phil with laughter.  I keep getting medals for shootin' - dunno why.  The bullseye is as big as a bloody possum's bum and it don't move and it's not firing back at ya like the Johnsons did when our big scrubber bull got into their prize cows before the Ekka last year!  All ya gotta do is make yourself comfortable and hit the target - it's a piece of piss!!  You don't even load your own cartridges, they comes in little boxes, and ya don't have to steady yourself against the rollbar of the roo shooting truck when you reload!
 
Sometimes ya gotta wrestle with the city boys and I gotta be real careful coz they break easy - it's not like fighting with Doug and Phil and Jack and Boori and Steve and Muzza all at once like we do at home after the muster.
 
Turns out I'm not a bad boxer either and it looks like I'm the best the platoon's got, and I've only been beaten by this one bloke from the Engineers - he's 6 foot 5 and 15 stone and three pick handles across the shoulders and as ya know I'm only 5 foot 7 and eight stone wringin' wet, but I fought him till the other blokes carried me off to the boozer.
 
I can't complain about the Army - tell the boys to get in quick before word gets around how bloody good it is.
 
Your loving daughter,
Sheila

Automobile Air Conditioner

The Goldberg Brothers - The Inventors of the Automobile Air Conditioner

Here's a little fact for automotive buffs or just to dazzle your friends.

The four Goldberg brothers, Lowell, Norman, Hiram, and Max, invented and developed the first automobile air-conditioner. On July 17, 1946 , the temperature in Detroit was 97 degrees.


The four brothers walked into old man Henry Ford's office and sweet-talked his secretary into telling him that four gentlemen were there with the most exciting innovation in the auto industry since the electric starter.

Henry was curious and invited them into his office.

They refused and instead asked that he come out to the parking lot to their car.

They persuaded him to get into the car, which was about 130 degrees, turned on the air conditioner, and cooled the car off immediately.


The old man got very excited and invited them back to the office, where he offered them $3 million for the patent.

The brothers refused, saying they would settle for $2 million, but they wanted the recognition by having a label, 'The Goldberg Air-Conditioner,' on the dashboard of each car in which it was installed.

Now old man Ford was more than just a little anti-Semitic, and there was no way he was going to put the Goldberg's name on two million Fords.

They haggled back and forth for about two hours and finally agreed on $4 million and that just their first names would be shown.


And so to this day, all Ford air conditioners show -- Lo, Norm, Hi, and Max -- on the controls.

Why did he consider it a gang? Because about five of my friends wearing the vests got into a fight with some of the football team. It ain’t easy bein’ a gangsta; even with such low prices like mine.”
