2007-06-30 - 3:03 p.m.Can my regular readers send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org . I lost all my email addresses from the old address. Thanks
All week I've had various ideas for my next posting, but when push comes to shove, I lose the idea or something else comes up, but today I got this in my email, and as usual I figured right off it was crap. As you will see it claims to have been sent by Jay Leno.
Here is the edited email version along with my with my revisions inserted in boldface type:
Jay Leno puts it into perspective and makes us think about the pathetic negativity.
Jay Leno wrote this;
No he didn't!
it's the Jay Leno we don't often see....
Because it was written by a conservative Asshole! NOT Jay Leno!
"The other day I was reading Newsweek magazine and came across some poll data I found rather hard to believe. It must be true given the source, right?
The Newsweek poll alleges that 67 percent of Americans are unhappy with the direction the country is headed and 69 percent of the country is unhappy with the performance of the president.
I've read only 13% approve of this Asshole! In essence 2/3s of the citizenry just ain't happy and want a change.
So being the knuckle dragger I am, I started thinking, ''What we are so unhappy about?''
Is it that we have electricity and running water 24 hours a day, 7 days a week? Is our unhappiness the result of having air conditioning in the summer and heating in the winter? Could it be that 95.4 percent of these unhappy folks have a job?
No, Unemployment is running 37% right now. (In May, total employment was about unchanged at 145.9 million, and the employment-population ratio held at 63.0 percent.)
Maybe it is the ability to drive from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean without having to present identification papers as we move through each state?
NOT TRUE! You've read my account of border state checkpoints and how they actually search people arbitrarily and turn drug dogs on every car regardless of probable cause. Or possibly the hundreds of clean and safe motels we would find along the way that can provide temporary shelter? I guess having thousands of restaurants with varying cuisine from around the world is just not good enough. Or could it be that when we wreck our car, emergency workers show up and provide services to help all and even send a helicopter to take you to the hospital.
Where you can get healed, IF you have health insurance
Perhaps you are one of the 70 percent of Americans who own a home. You may be upset with knowing that in the unfortunate case of a fire, a group of trained firefighters will appear in moments and use top notch equipment to extinguish the flames thus saving you, your family and your belongings. See Below, "Do You and Your Neighbors Have Fire Services In case of Fire at YOUR Home?" Or if, while at home watching one of your many flat screen TVs, a burglar or prowler intrudes , an officer equipped with a gun and a bullet-proof vest will come to defend you and your family against attack or loss.
Theoretically yes, but not neccesarily. This all in the backdrop of a neighborhood free of bombs or militias raping and pillaging the residents. Neighborhoods where 90 percent of teenagers own cell phones and computers.
How about the complete religious, social and political freedoms we enjoy,
Try being Muslim or Wicca or Sikh or espouse any unpopular viewpoint. Keep it to yourself, OK. Be verbal about your unpopular viewpoint and see how you get treated. that are the envy of everyone in the world? Maybe that is what has 67 percent of folks unhappy.
Fact is, we are the largest group of ungrateful, spoiled brats the world has ever seen. No wonder the world loves the U.S., yet has a great disdain for its citizens.
This is Ass-Backwards....People don't hate Americans, they hate our government! They see us for what we are. The most blessed people in the world who do nothing but complain about what we don't have , and what we hate about the country instead of thanking the good Lord we live here.
I know, I know. What about the president who took us into war and has no plan to get us out? The president who has a measly 31
Try 13% percent approval rating? Is this the same president who guided the nation in the dark days after 9/11?
How can you guide from a scared shitless state on Air force 1? The president that cut taxes Cut Taxes?
Oh you mean for the top 5% of Americans! to bring an economy out of recession?
Out of recession? Is that why the stock market crashed and now the housing market is crashing? Could this be the same guy who has been called every name in the book for succeeding in keeping all the spoiled ungrateful peoples safe from terrorist attacks?
Right, like 911, that he most likely participated in!
The commander in chief of an all-volunteer army that is out there defending you and me? Did you hear how bad the President is on the news or talk show? Did this news affect you so much, make you so unhappy you couldn't take a look around for yourself and see all the good things and be glad?
Think about it......are you upset at the President because he actually caused you personal pain OR is it because the "Media" told you he was failing to kiss your sorry ungrateful excuses every day. This is total Bullshit!
Make no mistake about it. The troops in Iraq and Afghanistan have volunteered to serve, and in many cases may have died for your freedom. There is currently no draft in this country. They didn't have to go.
They are able to refuse to go and end up with either a ''general'' discharge, an ''other than honorable'' discharge or, worst case scenario, a ''dishonorable'' discharge after a few days in the brig.
Sure, just like Lt. Ehren Wataba who was court martialed for refusing?
I don't want to see kids selling lemonade, I want see the truth on the news for a change so we can fix America's problems! The media knows this and media outlets are for-profit corporations. They offer what sells , and when criticized, try to defend their actions by "justifying" them in one way or another. Just ask why they tried to allow a murderer like O.J. Simpson to write a book about how he didn't kill his wife, but if he did he would have done it this way......Insane!
Stop buying the negativism you are fed everyday by the media. Shut off the TV, burn Newsweek, and use the New York Times for the bottom of your bird cage. Then start being grateful for all we have as a country. There is exponentially more good than bad.
We are among the most blessed people on Earth and should thank God several times a day, or at least be thankful and appreciative."
"With hurricanes, tornados, 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?"
What does this have to do with anything?
There's no TRUTH here, only right wing "feel good" crap...America - Change it or lose it!
Slapping down another Bullshit email!
Click here to go to the News Story: Do You and Your Neighbors Have Fire Services Incase of Fire at YOUR Home? May 24, 2007 | 11:51 PM Category: News Report This Post I was absolutely blown away when I heard the story of the family in Gilbert that lost thier home to fire in Gilbert when the Gilbert Fire Dept. refused to attempt to save thier home. Apparently they live in one of those crazy County "Pockets?" They do not pay the same amount of property taxes to the City of Gilbert so Gilbert won't touch them. They just made sure that all of the people were out but then stood by and watched the house burn to the ground. I can' imagine being a fire fighter and being able to stand there and watch that. No matter what the politics of the situation were shouldn't they have tried to save this families home? From what they reported, families in this area were notified that Gilbert Fire AND Rural Metro would not be providing service to this area any more and it was up to the residents to either annex with Gilbert or make other arrangements. Again, what happened to the humanity and common sense it just would have taken to throw some water on this house. VERY SAD! The family of the home said that they were completely unaware of the need annex with gilbert.|
