Police stop generous Ind. 5th-grader with $10,000
(AP) – 22 hours ago

SELMA, Ind. — Police say a fifth-grader handed out about $300 to others on the bus ride to his eastern Indiana school. Problem is, they say, the cash was among some $10,000 he took from his grandparents' safe.

Delaware County Sheriff George Sheridan says the boy was riding the bus to Selma Elementary School when he handed out the money on Friday, the last school day before Christmas vacation began.

Children who received the ones, fives and twenties told teachers and the principal, and the sheriff's department was called.

Officers found the boy carrying the rest of the cash, which was returned to his grandparents. Police weren't certain what he intended to do with the money or how he got it from the safe.

The boy misses the point of generosity.
Is it a gift if it costs the giver nothing?

In a related story, the Senate votes this morning for a 'generous' health care take over that will cost them nothing, as they and their staff, and their families wont participate in it.
It builds a framework for the sort of liberty stifling, European styled, soft fascism that will cost my children, and their children, the American Dream- Freedom to succeed or fail .

You will hear the Senate majority call this a "Christmas gift" to Americans, a newsie already called Senate passage,"A Christmas gift to the President". They have that Selma,IN 5th grader's understanding of gifts. They are reaching into the pockets of unborn generations to give this. It cost them nothing except an extension of the usual 3 day work week of the Senate.

Generosity? Look at the Christmas story for true generosity.

The God who made us,
willingly gave of himself,

gave his Son.

We, the undeserving needy
can turn to Him ,
and receive his gift:

Redemption, Salvation, New Life.
Precious gifts
that cost Him the lifeblood of His Son.

Freely given, freely received.

Merry Christmas, friends.

The Opposite of Depression

A psychologist, noting the upswing in counseling appointments around the holidays said something profound-
"The opposite of depression isn’t ‘Yippee!’
The opposite of depression is gratitude."

Hey, I got one ahead of the curve!!

It isn't often you can visit here
and read something ahead of the curve
(or even a recent post)
and don't think it will happen again, but it happened September 14th.
read " O "- The Mini Series.
The only thing missing are styrofoam columns.

THIS WEEK catches up.

A platter of fresh Guinea pigs for them!

If you disagree with this post , you are a RACIST!!

So many racists in the music world..

Kanye West tries to restore the MTV Female Video Award to its rightful owner, and he is met with a backlash that is obviously based in racism. People mag reports:

Stars watching the show and tweeting immediately posted their thoughts on the incident. "Kanye needs to learn how to wait his turn," Zac Hanson wrote. "I am sure he will get plenty of mic time to say something stupid later in the show."
Wait his TURN ! What do you mean by THAT? Kanye doesn't have to follow the MAN's clock , when he has something stupid to say, it IS Kanye's turn.

Country singer John Rich went even further with his tweet: “KanyeWest is a lowlife. He needs to have his @@@ kicked in the middle of the stage right now! What a piece of @@@@!!! Go TAYLOR SWIFT.”
See there, a 'Rich ' white man puts Kanye down and threatens to lynch him .

Pink, who was also nominated for best female video, tweeted: “Kanye west is
the biggest piece of s– on earth. Quote me.” And Katy Perry followed suit: “F– U

Look girls, Kanye just thought it would be better to spread the award around to people who didn't win it, you know, like the President told that white plumber Joe that he wants to spread around Joe's stuff. If you are against THAT, you are an obvious racist.

Speaking of the President, Drudge reported an ABC reporter’s tweet quoting Obama as saying “Kanye is a jackass” . That's two Presidents in a row that 'hate black people' by Kanye's count.

"O" - This Fall on A B C

It looks like the Obama worship will be parodied by none other than ABC this fall.

See this preview in which:

the world awakens to new overlords hovering above the populace like czars or commisars,

a charming face and soft demeanor disguise an agenda obvious to a few though invisible to most,

young people are enthralled by the 'coolness' of the leader who is worshiped for spreading "hope" and gifts,

the 'watchdog' press has its choke chain jerked,

those who won't bow the knee are not reasoned with but chided for refusing 'change',

false messiah topples a symbol of THE Messiah,

and the soft, cuddly hope and change army reveals a cold-blooded reptilian core.
Watch it here.

Looks like the only things left out are Styrofoam Greek columns

Pray for your President.

...besides, class, decorum and propriety far beyond that of leftists,
this is the reason that assassination chic hasn't caught on with
the right in Obama's term like it did during George W. Bush's administration.

Long life to you , Mr. President.

Move On (to self destruction)

Subject: Bush's torture

Dear MoveOn member,
On Thursday, President Obama released memos that describe,

in horrific detail, the torture techniques authorized by the Bush administration.
The memos make clear that top Bush officials didn't just condone torture—
they encouraged it.
So far there's been no accountability for the architects
of Bush's torture program—the top officials who justified
keeping detainees awake for 11 days straight,
waterboarding them repeatedly,
and forcing prisoners into coffin-like boxes with insects.1
We need real consequences for those responsible—
it's the only way to keep this from happening again.
Attorney General Holder can open an investigation into the
torture program—but he most likely won't unless people
everywhere speak up and demand it. Can you sign our
petition to Attorney General Eric Holder asking him
to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate
the torture program? If we can reach 200,000 signatures,
we'll deliver the petition to Holder by the end of the week.

The petition says: "No one is above the law.

It's time to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate
and prosecute the architects of the Bush-era torture program."
Calls for action, from the United Nations, the ACLU, Amnesty International,2
Senators Leahy and Feingold, and others, are gathering steam.

The New York Times made the case for accountability in an editorial:3
"...[Obama] has an obligation to pursue what is clear evidence of a government policy sanctioning the torture and abuse of prisoners—in violation of international law and the Constitution.
" This isn't about retribution or politics. It's about accountability. If hundreds of thousands of us speak up, we can make sure Holder hears this loud and clear.

Nita, Kat, Peter, Ilyse, and the rest of the team ,
You are stupid fools to be aghast
at locking a mass murderer up with a caterpillar.
(An interrogation method that WAS NEVER USED. )

There are thousands of reasons to use agressive interrogation
techniques against these killers,
starting with the thousands killed in NYC on 9/11/01,
and including the thousands of people saved in L.A.
by the information gained by the LEGAL ,
judicious use of these tactics.
There was no torture, compared to the hundreds
who chose between burning to death in the World Trade Center,
or escaping the flames for a few seconds to fall to their deaths.
There was no torture, compared to the gleeful beheading of Daniel Pearl

Silly asses, those murderers would sooner slit your throats until your empty
heads left your lifeless bodies than give you the praise you think you
deserve for for taking up their cause against America.

You are useful idiots.

Happy 17th Birthday, Son

It doesn't take very many years to go from being a proud Dad, to an idiot.
What parent isn't an idiot to teenaged eyes?

Hopefully, the reverse process will take less time.

When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly
stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at
how much the old man had learned in seven years. - Mark Twain

Like The Death Star , but run by Spaceballs.

Saw this picture at Cookie's blog, with some other good ones.

The Debt Star photo is pretty good,
but I think a better picture of the triumvitrate of Pelosi, Reid, and Obama is in Spaceballs.

After all, the Spaceballs' inept troika of leaders weren't out to destroy the planet, just re-distribute oxygen.

The Congress and Administration aren't aiming to destroy the economy, but to own it.

Same difference.

Rules Kids Won't Learn in School

I saw a poster at Jimmy John's Sandwich shop the other day.
The words were ascribed to "a wealthy software developer"(Bill Gates). says otherwise.
But, the words are wise, regardless of their authorship
and I hope my kids learn these rules faster than I did.

Rules Kids Won't Learn in School
  • Rule No. 1: Life is not fair. Get used to it.
  • Rule No. 2: The real world won't care as much about your self-esteem as much as your school does. It'll expect you to accomplish something before you feel good about yourself.
  • Rule No. 3: Sorry, you won't make $80,000 a year right out of high school. And you won't be a vice president or have a car phone either. You may even have to wear a uniform that doesn't have a Hollister label.
  • Rule No. 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait 'til you get a boss. He doesn't have tenure, so he tends to be a bit edgier. When you screw up, he's not going to ask you how you feel about it.
  • Rule No. 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping. They called it opportunity. They weren't embarrassed making minimum wage either. They would have been embarrassed to sit around talking about musicians all weekend.
  • Rule No. 6: It's not your parents' fault. If you screw up, you are responsible. This is the flip side of "It's my life," and "You're not the boss of me," and other eloquent proclamations of your generation. When you turn 18, it's on your dime. Don't whine about it, or you'll sound like a baby boomer.
  • Rule No. 7: Before you were born your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way paying your bills, cleaning up your room and listening to you tell them how idealistic you are. And by the way, before you save the rain forest from the blood-sucking parasites of your parents' generation, try delousing the closet in your bedroom.
  • Rule No. 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers. Life hasn't. In some schools, they'll give you as many times as you want to get the right answer. Failing grades have been abolished and class valedictorians scrapped, lest anyone's feelings be hurt. Effort is as important as results. This, of course, bears no resemblance to anything in real life.
  • Rule No. 9: Life is not divided into semesters, and you don't get summers off. Not even Easter break. They expect you to show up every day. For eight hours. And you don't get a new life every 10 weeks. It just goes on and on.
  • Rule No. 10: Television is not real life. Your life is not a sitcom. Your problems will not all be solved in 30 minutes, minus time for commercials. In real life, people actually have to leave the coffee shop to go to jobs.
  • Rule No. 11: Be nice to nerds. You may end up working for them. We all could.
  • Rule No. 12: Smoking does not make you look cool. It makes you look moronic. Next time you're out cruising, watch an 11-year-old with a butt in his mouth. That's what you look like to anyone over 20. Ditto for "expressing yourself" with purple hair and/or pierced body parts.
  • Rule No. 13: You are not immortal. If you are under the impression that living fast, dying young and leaving a beautiful corpse is romantic, you obviously haven't seen one of your peers at room temperature lately.
  • Rule No. 14: Enjoy this while you can. Sure parents are a pain, school's a bother, and life can be depressing. But someday you'll realize how wonderful it was to be a kid.
    Maybe you should start now. You're welcome.
