A "Shillary" Clinton joke

Another one from my good friend Barb;

Presidential candidates, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and John Edwards were flying to a convention.

Barack looked at Hillary, chuckled and said, 'You know, I could throw a $1,000 bill out of the window
right now and make somebody very happy.'

Hillary shrugged her shoulders and replied, I could throw ten $100 bills out of the window and make
ten people very happy.'

John added, 'That being the case, I could throw one hundred $10 bills out of the window and make a
hundred people very happy.'

Hearing their exchange, the pilot rolled his eyes and said to his co-pi lot, 'Such big-shots back there.
I could throw all of them out of the window and make 156 million people very happy.'

Hmmm, Is it time for the Darwin Awards already?

Ya know, sometimes I really have to wonder what motivates people to do some of the things they do. I mean, why does someone try to drive 120 mph on the highway? hell, why do people think they can out run the police? My friend Barb sent me this pic and I can't believe what I am seeing. It would be interesting to read the backstory on this. But why would someone do this knowing what we know about combining electricity & water. Notice that the multitap AC strip is resting on flip flops.

2 houses

I received this from my friend Vincent;

House #1 A 20 room mansion (not including 8 bathrooms) heated by natural gas. Add on a pool (and a pool house) and a separate guest house, all heated by gas. In one month this residence consumes more energy than the average American household does in a year. The average bill for
electricity and natural gas runs over $2400/mo.
In natural gas alone, this property consumes more than 20 times the national average for an American home. This house is not situated in a Northern or Midwestern "snow belt" area. It's in the South.

House #2 Designed by an architecture professor at a leading national university. This h ouse incorporates every "green" feature current home construction can provide. The house is 4,000 square feet (4 bedrooms) and is nestled on a high prairie in the American southwest. A central closet in the house holds geothermal heat-pumps drawing ground water through pipes sunk 300 feet into the ground. The water (usually 67 degrees F.) heats the house in the winter and cools it in the summer. The system uses no fossil fuels such as oil or natural gas and it consumes one-quarter electricity required for a conventional heating/cooling system. Rainwater from the roof is collected and funneled into a 25,000 gallon underground cistern. Wastewater from showers, sinks and toilets goes into underground purifying tanks and then into the ; cistern. The collected water then irrigates the land surrounding the house. Surrounding flowers and shrubs native to the area enable the property to blend into the surrounding rural landscape.

HOUSE #1 is outside of Nashville, Tennessee; it is the abode of the
"environmentalist" Al Gore.

HOUSE #2 is on a ranch near Crawford, Texas; it is the residence
of the President of the United States, George W. Bush.

An "inconvenient truth."

A different take on Hillary Clinton

From my friend Barb;

"In a news conference Deanna Favre announced she will be the starting QB for the Packers this coming Sunday. Deanna asserts that she is qualified to be starting QB because she has spent the past 16 years married to Brett while he played QB for the Packers. During this period of time she became familiar with the definition of a corner blitz, and is now completely comfortable with other terminology of the Packers offense. A survey of Packers fans shows that 50% of those polled supported the move.

Hillary Clinton makes the same claims as to why she is qualified to be President and 50% of democrats polled agreed.

She has never run a City, County, or State.

When told Hillary Clinton has experience because she has spent 8 years in the White House, Dick Morris stated "so has the pastry chef!"

Latest Graph of "BS"

I found this graph. It shows the Globally averaged satellite-based temperature of the lower atmosphere from 1991 through 11.07. It also shows the UN IPCC projected range of warming, which the graph seems not to be cooperating with. Hmmm.

I found this interesting because it shows how the climate has been cooling since 1998 and yet to listen to the "BS" alarmists, we are headed toward Armageddon. But it does show that the temperatures have actually cooled in the last few years, not risen. If anything, there is a leveling off the climate, so that doesn't jive with the "BS" alarmist chicken littles out there, otherwise known as the "castrati". Source is
